RE: Advice please for Ford F350 6.7l

I don't have the 6.7 but I can answer your questions although there have been additions to the newer F250/350's some things are the same or better. 1) The only additive I use is Ford Cetane booster. 2) I'm sure this is in your Owners Manual but the recommended mileage before towing is 500 miles. This is for the rear end to let the gears mesh, no other reason. 3) Tow Haul works great in the 6.4 that I have. I always use it towing and we have crisscrossed the country a couple of times. Again read your OM to learn how to get the most out of it. 4) Enjoy your new truck.

RE: How long do you keep your truck?

I get rid of them when the AC goes out, 10-12 years 150,000+.

RE: Insuring medical equipment in the RV

You need to get away from your RV insurance and find a specialty insurance writer.

RE: Generator selection

Get a "Smarter Tools" generator at Costco. It's a rebadged Yamaha 2000 (Y80 engine) and at half the cost. $599.99 iirc. +1 Just purchased a pair and connection cable.

RE: Dometic 2652 Cooling Unit Replacement

I replaced my cooling unit with a Amish unit 3 years ago. I have replaced the AC heating element eight months ago. As of now I'm past the warranty period had I purchased a new one and also the Amish unit. I'm still $600.00 ahead.

At the present time mine is freezer 14 refrigerator 40 setting on 2. It was lower/cooler but we just restocked this afternoon so I expect it to go back down to somewhere around 7 freezer and 37 refrigerator.

RE: Roof ac algae build up

You don't want to use petroleum products. I use Dawn with a little bleach in warm water. Use the same mixture for awning. You could just go to Camping World and buy one of the commercial cleaners they sell.

RE: Long but leisurely trip from NH to NM up to MT then home

Quick estimate but 6000 miles in thirty days doesn't sound leisurely to me. We're planning 3700 in thirty days it wont be a rush but I don't consider we'll be doing much sightseeing. Our usual travel on a trip like this is drive 250 miles a day then stop for two or three nights depending on local places to see/do.

RE: Kayaks - Does size really matter?

I've paddled most of the reasonably priced recreation kayaks and my preference is the Old Town Loon 11'1". DW prefers the Heron 9 again by Old Town. What I like about the Loon is that both the seat and the foot pegs can be adjusted.

RE: refrigerator problem

From: Dometic Refrigerator Service Tips Unplug from AC outlet Remove the heater leads from the lower circuit board and measure for proper resistance across the two leads. You should obtain the following readings, +/- lo%: WATTS VOLTS OHMS RM2612 295 120 48 RM2652 325 120 44 RM2812 325 120 44 RM2852 325 120 44

RE: To Toll or not to Toll

Taking I94 from Minneapolis to I39 down to I74 to I57 you only have two tolls on I39-90 from the Wisconsin Illinois state line to Rockford. With this route you avoid Chicago traffic and many tolls $'s. I wouldn't bother with an IPASS unless you plan on many eastern trips. After 30 years in Chicago Western suburbs I57 was our preferred route South to Florida. Less traffic than I65 avoid Indianapolis and Louisville. Another option which would avoid tolls would be I35 south to US18 to US218 down I380 to I80 to I74 to I57 no tolls till you reach Florida.

RE: Hobbs NM to San Angelo TX

We've taken US 180/62 from Hobbs to Lamesa and then US 87 down to San Angelo several times never stayed in San Angelo so I can't help with camping spots. You may want to check RV Park Reviews for that.

RE: heat pump

Sorry, TXiceman, under the right conditions they do work that way. If the humidity is low ours will produce meaningful heat down to 30 degrees. I'm not saying its cost effective but we don't often pay for electric. boringram, if you camp in cooler weather often and on site included electric the heatpump will pay for itself.

RE: Don't tell too many people about our weather

We're above 50 degrees again in Marble Falls TX. I have used more propane this winter than the total used in the last 4 years fulltiming.
