RE: 5 Star Tune and Ford Warranty

The way the 5 Star makes the trans shift better and less RPM's on the motor seems like it would be better for Ford in the long run.

RE: Parking in front of my house

Well I would not normally complain but a 40 foot RV parked across the street from my house I would complain, that's why I bought a larger lot with RV parking, a small boat or small trailer might be OK but a 40 footer, that takes up a lot of parking spaces for cars.. They have storage yards for RV's or just buy a home with RV parking.

RE: Trying to see if FT RV'n is for us

$85,000 for a 5th wheel and $60,000 for a truck, ?? You can buy a nice used motorhome for less, 3 to 6 years old with slide outs and such than just buy a small 4 cly car to tow behind. Don't say your going to live fulltime to loan place.

RE: Blowout

Max pressure on a hot day is not always the best way to go, you do know tires while under way build heat and pressure, I never run max. Perhaps a bit of a counterpoint: Per all tire manufacturers, inflate the tire to the recommended PSI BEFORE DRIVING (that is their definition of "cold"). They know what PSI will do with temperature rise-- after all the Ideal Gas Law is pretty well known by the tire engineers. This does not suggest that 120 PSI is the correct PSI for his tires/actual weights-- I have no idea if this is proper inflation or overinflated for his coach. But at what time of day was pressure set, if you set pressure at 7am at max and by 2pm on a hot day it can rise as much as 10 psi without even driving, than add driving on that tire at 10 psi over max and see how high the psi can go.

Max pressure on a hot day is not always the best way to go, you do know tires while under way build heat and pressure, I never run max. I put all new 6 Hankook tires on a year ago, I hope yours is just a failure instead of quality issues..

RE: Reasonable Prep Fees?

When I bought my used 2008 motorhome 3 years ago I told the dealer I would pay their asking price which was fair but said no to any prep fees and any other sucker fees, just the sale price and tax and they said yes.. Buyers do have the upper hand, the dealers want them sold so just make a deal that is right for you or walk..

RE: Is this something RV'ers would use?

Yep I would buy this, when I go camping for over a week I have to hunt down a laundry matt, this would surly help and save some dollars..

RE: 1995 Bounder and What to offer on it

Just cause the tires are 11 years old you can still drive it home even if its 3 hours away, just drive slow and you should be OK.

RE: F-53 instrument cluster hard to see

I don't find mine hard to read unless Ford made changes since 2008, you can add a Ultra gauge and have a digital readout as well as the cluster gauge.

RE: RV Stolen Yesterday

Don't like to give more bad news but here in Vegas they steal RV's and take them out in the desert and used them as a place to make crack, this way no neighbors complain about the smell and call the city. Remember breaking bad, its more true than just a TV show.. Sorry about your bad day.

RE: Come on Fleetwood!

The Fleetwood today is not the same Fleetwood from 2008 and back, its a whole new company after BK in 2009, the new company just bought the name and the equipment and moved the headquarters from California to Indiana.

RE: 2013 vs 2014 Bounder

90 thou and some on the 2013 with bath and half and 103 and some dollars for the 2014 with one bath but 7 thou miles, the 2013 had at least twice that miles. Well its a year newer and less miles and cost more, that's normal, I do know the new Fleetwood company makes the classic model Bounder and a little higher quality model Bounder. As to the V-10 it will handle the mountain's, just get the 5 star tuning and you will be fine.

RE: Input on this health insurance Company - US Health Advisors?

Oh and CHM has never failed to pay for anyone's insurance and they have one of the highest ratings in the consumer reports for health insurance even though its not your typical insurance, its a share insurance we all pay in and CHM has hundreds of millions in their bank account, {fact} and you choose your real doctor or real hospital. Google it and you will see, they have even been on the Fox news channels and they also gave it a high rating..

RE: Input on this health insurance Company - US Health Advisors?

Natural medicine is what I meant, as to my food I could be better in that dept, like I said its not insurance for everyone but if you are healthy and don't require meds to stay alive than this is a good cheap option instead of paying the fine to the government thanks to Obama..

RE: RE Even new rigs need to be inspected My Winnebago story

Gads another new bad build RV story, there is a thread running from a RV reporter saying the same thing about how quality in the RV industrial system has gone way down in the past few years, another reason to keep my 2008 till the tires fall off.

RE: Hauling a big trailer for only a couple of miles ?

You could do it, if you can set the receiver higher to slightly tilt the trailer back it will take weight off the hitch, just drive slow.

RE: Impressive Ford HP/TQ numbers

That's a silly amount of power to make out of a 3.5L motor. It's almost surely what I'd buy if I were in the market for a half ton. I also wonder how many RPM's will it have to spin to make that, maybe above 5000 or 6000 ?

RE: New Truck = Bigger Receiver = Unexpected Problem

I think they sell a adapter that fits inside that 2 1/2 inch hitch to fit 2 inch receiver, I know I have seen one.

RE: Input on this health insurance Company - US Health Advisors?

Healthcare "Ministries" -- several people swear by them and costs are low, but these are not health insurance plans as ministries sites will tell you. That is what me and my wife have and it cost us $90.00 a month for both of us, its not for everyone but if your healthy and don't need to take medicine and do things on the natural side this is the way to go.. Your body does better without medicine, your doctor also lies to you because they have their hands tied up by the big pharmacies, I bet doctors don't take tons of medicine..

RE: Care to guess the new Powerstroke HP and torque rating?

The bigger question is, what type of issues is this one going to have? I agree on this one, I am a Ford fan but Ford always has issues with the 1st year of anything they make, always wait till the 2nd or 3rd year before buying.
