RE: Torque, HP, gas mileage upgrades

Sorry there is no "free" lunch and as a result the only thing they do is lighten your wallet. I changed mine out in my F150 and went back to the OEM air intake and paper filter. PITA cleaning and re-oiling all for not.

RE: Info on replacing black and grey water slide vavles

If you are running the propane heater under the trailer when the belly is still covered guess what? The propane heater is doing next to nothing but warming the coroplastic skin of the underbelly. Valves are frozen/waste water is frozen at the valves. I'm guessing you did not heat the valves/tanks/waste tubes electrically? If you've been relying on the furnace to get heat into the under belly you're going to have to spend some time with it running to get some heat down there. Even if the remote dump valve cables are bust you're still going to have to get down into the area and open it up to get to them.

RE: Anti-Virus software Win7 64 bit???

Microsoft Essentials. Download for free from Microsoft. It is working better on Win 7 then it did on XP. Malwarebytes free version to get rid of adware.. Yes this is the best approach. I recommend this also.... x3 Been using it since it came out. Lite on it's feet and built by the same company as the OS. No issues in many years of use from XP - WIN8.

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

If you are looking at a truck trailer combination and planning on moving to BC, you may find that a F150 is not a strong enough or have enough braking power for BCs mountain passes. Well that would TOTALLY depend on the size of the trailer and the F150 wouldn't it! You may wish to add a little more detail instead of making a blanket statement next time. Duh :S

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

hmm do you think i can travel all the way across canada even northern ontario and the prairies in just a car and hotel? Jeeze, how backs woods do you think the rest of the country is LOL! Although there are still areas where you'll be stretching your fuel tank you'd do just fine ;)

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

wow again very eye opening for me in terms of having someone look at something do you just take that to another dealer? i dont imagine there are a lot of RV mechanics around ? The drive-train(engine, transmission, running gear, brakes, etc) can be checked out by mechanics. The RV section can be a little more challenging unless you know someone familiar with the different systems - stove, HVAC, fridge etc. It's not impossible to learn and there certainly is LOTS of PDI lists available to give you a hand. Being an educated consumer is your fist and best weapon.

RE: 6.6 duramax vs 6.0 powertroke

250K kms/150K miles on my 6.0L. Batteries, brakes, shocks, alternator, couple of serpintine belts, tires, U-joints - just regular wear items..................engines?? then again I've heard that Cdn diesel fuel really goes a long way to helping diesel trucks up here. Actually nothing on my truck made by FMCO has actually broke or needed to be repaired. Wouldn't hesitate to buy another. Best truck I've ever owned. Read all about the "horror" stories but considering how many of these Ford built it's really hardly any at all. As usual YMMV.

RE: Newbie driving across Canada needs advice

The $10k trailer might make it to BC but I doubt the $10K truck will be pulling it when it gets there. Are you handy?

RE: My driver seat has had it. Replacements?

On the leather seats I use Amoral at least 1x/yr. The seats do still have support, but I am not a large person. 155lbs. Try once a month or more. I use Mothers Leather Care, don't much care for anything Amoral getting near anything on my truck. The more sun your truck/interior gets and let's face it NC get a whole lot more than I do here in Southern Ontario, the more it needs a moisturizer. Most are lanolin based. The leather in the Lariat should last an easy 15 years if taken care of.

RE: My driver seat has had it. Replacements?

Just because you don't have a Lariat does not mean Ford was short on your seats. I have a 2006 Lariat with 56K on it and the front drivers seat is starting to crack. Do you do anything to help keep the leather moist?? Have almost 150K miles on mine and except for a burn in the seat from previous owner they feel and look brand new. Keeping them clean and using a moisturizer on them will keep them in tip top shape - way better leather than my '98 F150 Lariat. There are lots of aftermarket seats available for Ford Superduty's. Just google it. Air ride options as well.

Threw my tensioner and serpentine belt last spring on the way home. Had the truck flat bedded to my house. I would not want it towed to far with the rear wheels down without the drive shaft being disconnected.

RE: Am I going to regret my decision?

A 5km commute with a diesel? Yea, the F150 will like that a LOT better! ;) I know more than a few people with the new Eco F150 and all really love the truck. Congrats!

RE: Non-heated holding and water tank options

Just FYI on the above product you need to be plugged in or driving and our running the genny for this system to work. You have to use some kind of energy(propane/LPG or electricity) to keep the camper/tanks warm, no getting around that. I camp all winter up here in Ontario, never had frozen tanks yet.

RE: Winter RV'ing, Trials and tribulations!! Haha!

Here in Ontario the coldest I've had the rig out is just about where you are ;) Just up around Godrich on the Northern end of Huron, right in the snow belt :) Pushed Algonquin at -20C as well. Love winter camping :B

RE: Non-heated holding and water tank options

These will take care of it even without skirts or belly covering. Ultraheat tank pads

RE: Cold weather camping

Hi msue, winter camping That should help anyone who camps in extreme cold. Hi, Don't forget to protect the fridge. What do you mean? I have never read anything about protecting the frig? Jeeze I've ran my fridge at well over -20C for years, never an issue but I am familiar with this "trick". It also helps to create a convection draw as well.

RE: Knew it was possible, but what'r the odds?

A have a 99 Cent screw driver....opens ALL RV locks/doors/compartments Faster than using keys. Helped someone get into their rig one time using my cargo door keys to open his so my son could wiggle up through their clothes hamper trap door to unlock the front door.

RE: The Official unofficial CPE 2000i Generator Thread

I guess this official unofficial thread is now officially unofficially dead when the last few posts have gotten no response. It's summer. Every one is camping.
