RE: Remapping Transmission on Triton V10?

Thanks for the responses! I guess I should have clarified... I have a 2011 that has the 6.8L V-10. So I guess this means that I have the "latest and greatest" already. Thanks! The Torqueshift 5sp auto is with the cruise control on "AGGRESSIVE" to say the least. My 6.0L PSD does the exact same thing. Hit a hill with it on and the tranny might drop 2 gears to race to the top - goes like a bat out of hell. 1st time it did scared the******out of me! All I can say is it is designed to do this and if you don't want it doing it either get a programmer to change the shift pattern or kick off the CC on hills, that what I do and it'll save you some fuel.

RE: trailer towing insurance

Plus RV and Premiere RV with AAA. 100-200 miles of towing. I have the Canadian version(CAA), have used it several times and it's more than paid for itself.

RE: Leaky Seal on Blackwater Valve???

One of these works better. http://images.dyersonline.com/catalog/product/cache/1/image/300x/a1eed0813d52712d6e948f99c3696e26/v/a/valterra_3_twist-on-waste_valve-54574-2.jpg Just twist it on to the fitting on the end and then put the cap on/off. Hook up the hose and just pull two valves instead of one. No surprises.

RE: First camp in fuzion 342 questions

That looks like it stays right where it is. Funny that it's omni directional though because it looks like a directional model. Do you not have all the manuals for the trailer? I have the manual for my unit, fact is I have a bag full bag full of manual for just about everything in the rig that wasn't built by KZ.

RE: First camp in fuzion 342 questions

We still can't find the antenna up/down lever. As is, the antenna on the roof isn't flush with the roof, so we wonder if maybe it stays that way? Signal is pretty good. I'll go take some photos in a little while. Right below the antenna inside the rig you'll find the wind down. Looks like this. http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_lDvLM2IvPhA/S00HWeu5n2I/AAAAAAAAAww/4ACPTGnRn7c/s200/TV-Antenna-Crank.jpg Has to be right under the antenna, can't be any where else.

RE: How to replace all tires?

Jacked up the entire rig, put the stabs down and braced it with 6 axles stands then pulled all four tires/rims.

RE: Using Closed Truck Weigh Station?

I am in Canada and our province leaves the scales on when the station is closed so the public can use it. I have weighed my unit hooked up and then unhooked and weighed trailer and then the truck. I even weighed side to side and each tire. Brian x2 here in Ontario all the time. If they are staffed MOT staff have also been known to come out and help spot you.

RE: Diesel Prices

Diesel prices in Canada are typically lower than regular gas but it's all smoke and mirrors because the cost in Ontario right now is $1.35 per liter (that's $5.65 per US Gallon). I do very little travelling in Canada at that price but spend Nov - April in the US. I can find it for $1.27/L, not a whole lot more expensive than NY State.

RE: 2008 F 150 Brake Controller Question

My 2007 came with a relay to add to the fuse box along with a pigtail to plug into the harness behind the dash for the controller to wire to. IIRC the relay was for the 12vdc supply to the trailer. There should be a spot for the relay marked on the fuse panel cover. x2

RE: Webber Q 100

Run mine off a 20lbs cylinder all the time without issue. Certainly sounds like the safety check valve has turned on. Try another tank, even a 20/30lb and see if it repeats.

RE: Bottled water vs not

I have a Britta water filter in the camper that I use for all water we take on board for drinking/cooking. Unless I find some place has a boil advisory that's all I need.

RE: Torque, HP, gas mileage upgrades

Some programmers also move the throttle position so it seems like the vehicle has more get up and go at a lighter throttle position. Kind of a problem with servo actuated throttles as apposed to cable activated throttles that can't be faked out by the computer.

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.
