RE: Your Rig

I do use ratchet straps as they don't give any at all and I can adjust them easily. I also use the dog tie out anchors(walmart) to secure them into the ground. I also use the orange ones as everyone, including myself, has a tendency to walk into them. I love this mod. I still take it down in bad storms, but not nearly as nervous in just little pop up storms.

Good choice on using the Meguiar's Cleaner Wax!

RE: Your Rig

The top piece is a 3" saddle for making T taps into existing pipes. All I did to it was cut the tabs off of the sides with a 10" miter saw so the edges wouldn't touch the awning fabric. Here is the link I used to build mine form the Wildcat forum. I followed these directions except that my poles are 6 Ft in height due to my trailer height. Electric Awning Tie Down Poles

RE: Your Rig

We've just completed our first weekend with our new RV and truck and are now preparing for two weeks in Nova Scotia at the end of July. Very excited about getting this part of our lives started and traveling with our two cats. :C 5'er: 2012 Keystone XLite 26SAB (29') TV: 2014 GMC Sierra 1500 Double Cab 5.3L V8 Clam Six Pack 1660 Mag Screenhouse https://fbcdn-sphotos-f-a.akamaihd.net/hphotos-ak-xap1/t31.0-8/10495365_10202398943001507_4037872358533074653_n.jpg height=800 width=1200 Nice rig. On a side note, you might want to put a pole under that awning under the straps. If a gust of wind pushes the awning down, when it rebounds, it can pull the awning frame bolts out of the sides of the camper. We saw 6 campers this way in one afternoon year before last at Myrtle Beach in a short thunderstorm. Here is a shot of the ones I made. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130707_084316_zpsea10aa37.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130621_201506_zps7e6a9f7c.jpg

RE: Tires for Fiver

I have G614s on mine, but any of the ones mentioned above will do fine. Michelin, Bridgestone, or even the new kid on the block, Sailun.

RE: Creative pin box head safety ideas

As to the Ghetto look, it is far better then nothing, and i got the brightest color I could find!! I also cover the full bottom with a noodle as I also managed to graze the middle when passing under once. http://i1191.photobucket.com/albums/z467/rhagfo/295FA9AE-1183-43F1-8FD5-AA3FAA9A8C61_zpsoz9rjfob.jpg width=460 I've seen stars much brighter than that color after hitting my head on the slides and pin box. Several good ideas here.

RE: Ford 6.7 - what oil do you use?

As long as the oil is CJ-4 compliant, it is ok. Then go by the temps you will be using the oil in if really concerned. Lots of people change types between winter and summer.

RE: A reminder for those who sanitize the water system.

I use a teaspoon of pool & spa chlorinating granules in the fresh water tank. Fill it, let it sit overnight, run it through all the faucets until drained. Then I fill the tank again with just water. If I smell the chlorine, I may drain a second time and then refill. My old TT had a horribly musty icky smell to the fresh water tank. Like a stagnant pool. I did the above twice and the water tasted just as good as from my home tap (which is the best tap water I've had). I did my RV when I first got it. I'll repeat if water sits for a long time and/or the taste changes. X2!

RE: Draw tite front mount hitch

I am looking at one of these for my F350, I know, not your question, but isn't the hole for the pin behind the valance so you have to get on the ground to put the tow bar in?

RE: 6.7 PSD after 2 months

I've had my 6.7 since October and it continues to impress me daily. I've still got 7.3L Excursion and have had a '10 6.4L F350 and have driven every year Ford diesel since '86 and the 6.7L tops them all. People say, "Isn't that the way it is supposed to be?" I say "yep" and they nailed it! Now I worry because I am about to 'have' to drive a '15!!!

RE: Post your pics of F250 with 2000 lb pin weight

You should feel a little difference in the tires alone if the ones on your 250 are "E" rated tires and are inflated properly. The C & D rated tires on the 150 should have more sidewall flex to them, thus the Es should give you a more stable feel. Congrats on the new truck! I always have truck envy...it's just something they don't make meds for!:) Happy camping! Nah, Bucks F-150 had the Payload package, including the E tires, 7 lug wheels, stronger axle, etc. That's awesome! I figured they would've put the D rated tires on them the way the did the ones a few years ago.

RE: buying first 5th wheel today/insurance?

Gilbert RV insurance here. Way cheaper than State Farm and better coverage.

RE: newb with a DRW/SRW question

I've had 3 duallies in the past 5 years and still have 2 of them. Can't beat them for towing heavy loads. I've spent nearly 30 years driving everything from dump trucks to tractor trailers to ladder trucks to ambulances. All had dual wheels except a few ambulances along the way. I sincerely prefer duals on the back when towing heavy.
