RE: 2015 F-350 w/ AF 811, Stable load or Air Bags

Airbags can unload the suspension. Stable Loads engage the suspension sooner. Stable loads first.

I saw the lesser priced Sleek 3G amp listed for $89. Those with 4G phones commented that it works well. I suspect the newer 4G Sleek model boosts signal more efficiently. I wonder if the signal boost is more significant with the 4G model and worth another $45? Rhetorical question only. That's what the credit card is for! 4g for the sleek is a signal addition. The 4g version doesn't handle 3g signal differently. The sleek would work on T-Mobile or Verizon in case the OP changes carriers later.

Wish I would have spoke with you folks earlier. While T Mobile has no service contract we do have a purchase contract for the phones so switching probley not realistic. Thanks anyway What about selling the phones outright to satisfy your the sales price? Also, don't forget cellphone boosters. I have a few of them. They are not magic. They don't work everywhere. They do greatly extend your range. In my tow rig I'm currently running the Mobile Pro 4g. There is also an AC adapter for home or RV use. It's advertised as 5ft working radius. This is best case scenario. While driving our phones are within 1ft of the internal antenna. I have signal where no one else does. I also have a few Wilson Sleek boosters. These are single device only boosters. The Mobile Pro 4g is advertised as 50db signal gain. I've seen 35db gain. With the Wilson Sleek I average 18db gain. I'm not talking about the amount of bars on your front screen. I'm talking actual signal strength. Iphones require a code to be punched in to see the signal strength. Android signal strength is available in the Settings > About Phone > Status. The Mobile Pro 4g is a multi device all 4g booster (most 4g). The Sleek has different versions. All Sleek versions boost all 3g. There are a few different carrier specific 4g versions. They would boost Verizon and/or AT&T 4g plus all 3g. I linked to the all 3g only version.

RE: Two Vehicle Transmission

It would be cheaper to regear the differential than swap the transmission. Still have the same problem with tranny swap. Will the swap ever pay for itself? If the tranny is new, all other systems still have 263k miles. That's a lot for a gasser. Set aside money every month for a newer truck.

I have never heard of a cell phone case blocking signal. IPhones have never been known for strong signal. Motorola devices are usually good for use in a low signal environment. T-Mobile in the Pacific Northwest is typically sub par. Ask other campers what they are using. Also consider a cell phone booster.

RE: Truck upgrades

Skip airbags first. Go with Torklift Stableloads. Add airbags only if necessary (later). Airbags tend to unload the suspension.

RE: Unlocking an AT&T Galaxy S2 SGH-I777 smart phone

Calling from Mexico to the US can be really expensive. It would almost be cheaper for him to buy an unlocked international phone. Maybe a Nexus 5? The Nexus 6 is coming very soon.

RE: ATT Yahoo Mail

Right now is not a good time to mess with Yahoo. Very possible the entire portal was hacked. Yahoo hacked?

RE: Radiator Hose

I'm not familiar with Cat Diesel engines. However, when its coming out slowly it's pulling antifreeze from all the nooks and crannies. Removing the lower radiator hose to empty the system will probably make a large mess. Be sure to use only the antifreeze recommended for your actual engine. Do not use a universal substitute.

RE: Galaxy S4 downloading pictures-UPDATE

Dropbox. Dropbox has directions to create a shared folder on your Windows machine. Google Drive is another option.

RE: 2007.5 Dodge 2500 steering wander?

I did the BD Diesel version on my 2006 Dodge. Install is easy with correct tools. I had previously helped friends install these on 2nd Gen Dodge trucks. Might need a good torque wrench. They can usually be rented from Autozone or similar type store in your neighborhood.

RE: Best way to break in new 19.5 tires

My dealer said to ride the 19.5's heavy and hard.

RE: Galaxy Tablet

Tablets have allowed our PC's to collect dust. Tablets use less power than laptops too. Decent screen resolution makes for a great Ereader. I like my 2013 7" Nexus. Samsung also makes great tablets. Go for the best in your price range. Found a refurb for sale. I have no association with them. I watch the Android pages. http://www.ebay.com/itm/141420354472 http://www.androidpolice.com/2014/09/29/deal-alert-refurb-samsung-galaxy-tab-pro-12-2-32gb-on-sale-for-339-99-on-ebay-daily-deals/

RE: What is this switch ?

Minor to major fender bender should cut power to the fuel pump. This is the reset button. Standard on Fords since the mid 80's.

RE: 19.5" Truck Rim Specs - Offsets etc.

Check Craigslist. As soon as I bought mine new someone was selling them used two days later.

RE: Truck camper newb questions.

Don't forget S&S from Kalispell, Montana. There are a non slide company that are 4 season rated. I would get Torklift Stable Loads before airbags. Airbags may not be necessary. We use Fastguns with our AF 811. They are very nice and internally spring loaded. Airbags can unload the suspension. The Torklift Stable Loads engage the vehicle suspension sooner.

RE: Rear ladder that doesn't go to the top

It's a common setup. The Arctic Fox is the same way but has a rack on the roof for a handhold. This rack is a mixed blessing since you have to swing your leg over the rack and awning but at least you have something to hold while doing it. I honestly would not carry anything on the roof due to the increased height and CG. I use the ladder only for cleaning and inspections at home and use it as a base for my flag pole. When at home, you can use a taller ladder to make access easier. My AF is similar design. I do not want anything rubbing on the roof. I usually climb on top to inspect or place the winter cover.

RE: Electric Rear awning on Arctic Fox... need pics

Just curious of the need for the standoff brackets? My camper's not an AF but it mounts directly to the back of the camper. Not sure why there's a standoff bracket. Friend with 2014 AF 865 also has the same stand off brackets. I would definitely like to upgrade. The manual awning is a pain to deploy. Especially with Glow Steps setup and incoming weather system.
