RE: Who's idea was it?

I copied mine too. That's the beauty of these forums, lots of great ideas! I hold mine in place with long 3/16" bolts, bolted through the frame lip. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130407_152958_zps7c827266.jpg

RE: Bought a new truck.

Remember, once it is full of all of your stuff, plus, maybe a full tank of water, it may not sit nose high..

RE: B&W Companion

It's the little shock absorber type thing on the side of the head that acts when the head tilts side-to-side. Yep, on the right side underneath the head. It keeps the head level inf side-to-side motion.

RE: B&W Companion

I have loved my Companion hitch for years now. I've only had a problem in the last 3 trips. The threaded shaft on the head dampener has sheared off twice now. It's been replaced by B&W with no questions asked, but I just can't figure out what is causing it. I still will not have any other hitch. Love the rugged, yet simplicity of this hitch. Did B&W replace the entire damper or just the piston? I'm wondering if the cylinder could be out of round and it's jamming the piston somehow. Lyle The entire 'shock' comes as a unit. It has a T on the top with new bolts and a threaded end of the piston with a a new rubber bushing and nut. I believe the hole the piston goes through may be getting out of round and that's what is causing it. When the new one gets here, I will look at it again. Monty

RE: Allison transmission whine, louder than usual.

It can be a pump. Mine has done that very thing before. As a precaution, change the spin on filter and top off with fluid. While you are at it, smell the fluid. Does it smell burnt? Is it still pink? The responses above are correct too, it could be the Tcase.

RE: Opinion needed if you've owned a TT and a FW

I have both and the 5er is better to me. Easier to hook up, tow and back.

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.

RE: Waxing the fiver

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: Diesel Fuel smell occasionaly in cab of F250 7.3L

On the front and in the center of the engine on 99-03s. Behind the plastic cover that says "PowerStroke". it has a round cap on it.
