RE: honda 2000W & champion 3100 W

get the cheap generator but don't run it next to me. i've had several experiences where rvers get a noisy generator and want their neigbhor, me to listen to it for hours. and, at times, some 2K hondas will start and maybe run a 13.5K a/c but not very well and it is noisy. I'm guessing you think it's the open frame model?? You are wrong. It's Champion's inverter model and if both units where powering a 13.5k btu a/c next to you you would want the Champion doing it not the screaming Honda. Regarding can they be paralleled? Not sure on that. Their website Champion 3100 Inverter

RE: honda 2000W & champion 3100 W

Comparing the 2kw Honda to a 3100 Champion?? I don't get it? Me, I'd go with the Champ. It'll run probably even a 15k btu a/c unit the 2kw Honda might run a 13.5k btu unit. The Champ is bigger, bigger engine etc so on the same load the 2kw Honda can run the Champ should be less stressed and for that reason, make "less" noise. Just my thoughts. I have an open frame 3kw Champ and a 1kw Honda inverter but I'd never compare the two of them unless I was just charging my batteries.

RE: Truck upgrades

We purchased the 100,000 mile warranty and still have lots of time left on it. That ESP warranty from Ford was 200k miles/7 years. On a 2007 truck it's just about finished.

RE: Cyclone Toy hauler pulled by a Ford F-250 crew cab.

I was just thinking that dragging all that weight around put undue strain on the tranny and she finally screamed "ENOUGH!" and gave out at the weakest point. That transmission is also in the F250, F350 and F450 with no changes between each truck. More than capable of handling a GCVWR of 30000lbs.

RE: New truck advice

Hope no EgoBoost owners read this and find out that they don't own the "perfect" truck... ;) All things being equal the OP's rig has a GVWR close to 10000lbs. I'd put it in the 3/4 to 1 ton range anyway. At best that would be a fully decked EB with HD payload amd max tow package - on the edge of the trucks capacity.

RE: The Official unofficial CPE 2000i Generator Thread

We ran about 200' of extension cord and you couldn't hear it at the camper. The resistance in 200' of cord will also put some strain on it especially if you are using anything less than 14g cable. That's a long run.

RE: Remapping Transmission on Triton V10?

I believe that you have the Ford 4R100 transmission. Nope he doesn't. He has the Torqueshift 5sp -5R110W. It was introduced in 2003 behind the 6.0L PSD. The 4R100 was behind the 7.3L PSD. Tow/Haul will not affect the aggressive behavior of the engine management system to maintain speed while using CC. The tranny will drop gear(s) and rev like heck to maintain the set speed. You either live with it, turn it off on hills, or put a programmer on it to change the shift program. It does not matter if it's in T/H or not.

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.
