RE: Installing load adj. shocks, 94 Burb

Did you cut the strap that holds the shock closed before you put them on? Just collapse the shock with your hands and wrap a small piece of cord around the top and bottom and put them on your truck. Must be strong turtle to compress the Monroe load leveler http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/0D9A7E4C-9A77-4EAE-89BA-C8935E670D71-4446-000011804C7E38B0.jpg height=600

RE: Grand Canyon star Party

Naio, I don't know if the previous years' images are available on the phone version of Google Earth. They are certainly on the full-size version, for laptops and desktops. But here is an embarrassing confession -- I don't really know how to use my cellphone. I can make calls, but that is about it. (I grew up in the days of rotary dial landlines, hard-wired to the wall. I can't get my rapidly-aging head around the notion that this little wafer in my pocket is really a computer.) Wow someone in my peer group remember party lines,after the Korean war our neighbor didn't have a phone and when her son would call us Mom would send me to get her so she wouldn't miss her sons call When we visited the grandparents,Dad would call person to person to himself. so they would know we got home safe

Sometime after putting on the TLs,it is what it is,especially if its a shortbed http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile Uploads/8ED0F618-30C1-4329-BFED-A963EF72826D_zpsksbafbdq.jpg height=600

RE: Grand Canyon star Party

Stayed home on Memorial Day. thought about going to the Star Party at the grand canyon,Campground is full so will camp at my favorite space on FR 302 East of Tusayan Morning! Is free dispersed camping allowed in that area? I'm from Tucson but have never camped in the Kaibab National Forest. How's that area off of FR 302? RudyLots of spots,but if it rains,you will need 4x4

RE: Seeking advice on camper for my new truck

with the COG I would weigh it before I believed it.I have had 2 Palominos and both had the COG behind the rear wheels on a shortbed pickup. the ford is 6ft9in and the Ram is 6ft4in and would be worse Your truck is made for HD 4x4 not hauling stuff To make your pictures work you need to go to photobucket or something similiar I am only going buy specs on Palomino's website which show 37" plus for all soft side models except 550 at 22". I have not bought anything yet... Good luck on your project Get it weighed empty and with camper and add some pic

RE: rv.net forum fixed my fridge

Man i'm happy I found this site. i was having trouble with my fridge not cooling on propane. Worked fine on electric but on propane it would not cool. the flame was there but not cooling. Checked a few past posts and other members told/showed me how to remove and check/clean the burner and flue. Well last night thanks to this site i removed and cleaned the burner tube and reassembled in less than 30minutes. Fire it back up and what a huge difference in the flame. I mean you can actually hear the flame now. The fridge and freezer are working awsome now. I can only imagine what it would have cost me at an rv dealership to have this done not to mention pulling my fifth wheel there and back. Thanks a million to all that had input. Now a happy camper. My fridge would only cool on gas Had it serviced and cost$149

RE: Seeking advice on camper for my new truck

The real weirdness with the PW is the numbers on the door sticker. GAVR Front: 4750 LB, GAVR Rear: 6200 LB but GVWR 8510 LB. The tire and loading sticker says 1352 LB for occupants and cargo. Tires are Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac Tire LT285/70R17D with max load of 3195 @ 65 psi. My math says truck should weigh 7158 LB and axles can support 10,950 LB with tires rated to 12,780. That leaves 3792 LB but RAM's math says 1352 LB. The ss-550 has dry weight of 1594 LB with COG at 22" which would leave 2198 LB for people and stuff and not exceed axle or tire weights but would exceed GVWR. I am really confused and seem to find conflicting info as why numbers don't add up. Best guess is the soft springs but wouldn't some 5000 LB rated airbags make up for that? https://goo.gl/photos/2y4AY1GUwdjx3ZwR6https://goo.gl/photos/B86G3Vyk2kpQgRDY7 with the COG I would weigh it before I believed it.I have had 2 Palominos and both had the COG behind the rear wheels on a shortbed pickup. the ford is 6ft9in and the Ram is 6ft4in and would be worse Your truck is made for HD 4x4 not hauling stuff To make your pictures work you need to go to photobucket or something similiar

RE: Seeking advice on camper for my new truck

I never thought a hard side camper would be a good option for my PW and would never exceed my gross axle weight rating. The ss-550 has dry weight of 1594 lbs which would leave 1500 lbs of room before I hit GAWR. But I may have found a way to get a FWC hawk shell late July. The FWC is built better and should make the weight police happy since it's dry weight is around 850 lbs. Also with the FWC I would most likely leave it on the truck full time where the ss-550 would have come off except for camping trips. I have a Palomino pop up and the new ones are better with one piece door and electric top. All the wt will be on the rear axle, my F250 is 2880 empty and 4780 with camper. on the pop ups the COG will be behind the rear axle http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile Uploads/CF40C2B9-E593-45AC-84B9-6BFC76B0C48F_zpsl1k53nm2.jpg height=600

RE: Brakepad & rotor advise

Power Stop rotors/pads I have a 2013 Ford F-150 that I at the minimum need to have the front rotors turned and new brake pads due to warping. I am considering just replacing with new rotors, and have been doing Internet research. I have seen this brand on several different websites and they get generally favorable reviews. I know that there are several other brands out there such as Wagner, Bosch, Duralast, etc. While I drive a Ford, I would appreciate and suggestions or comments about any results, irregardless of it being a Ford, Chevy, Dodge, etc. Been there and my F150 brake problems ended when I traded it in and got a F250

RE: Timbrens vs Airbags vs Helper Spring

Looking for some opinions vs each other in which do you prefer and why. Picked up a new truck and I know one of these are going to be needed as a mod to the truck. Just not sure the route to go this time. New truck is F150 super crew with max toe and max payload options. I used work rites and Monroe load levelers on my half ton Ford http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/64B26241-4D2B-43ED-AC53-A6114DEE6F59-513-000001B2072645F0_zps7e541bcc.jpg height=600

RE: Second Gen 3.5 EcoBoost and 10 Speed Transmission

At some point does the high number of gears in a tranny become an annoyance due to gear hunting? I've heard a few complaints on the Ram 8spd for this. I'm currently in a 6sp which, when I was a kid, was 3 more gears than the best tranny :) 10 just seems ridiculous. That's what I was thinking. I wonder if they'll skip gears under light load. I looked up the ratios on the new 10 speed and the ratios of my 6sp(Ford) and in 10th speed I would be going 109 rpm slower 1740 vs 1850 at 68 mph(garmin) 70mph speedo. Wont be trading the Ford soon:h

RE: 2017 Honda Ridgeline- First Review

The 5000lb towing capacity is typical of a Front Wheel Drive based SUV, like the Pilot / Ridgeline. IF it was RWD the tow cap would be higher. No because the FWD version is 3500lb,the All wheel is 5000 lb

RE: Ok to run refer at an angle if on electricity?

3% and 6% if I remember correctly. I don't agonize any more since I have the ARP protection device in place. https://www.arprv.com/ Wonder what specs are for a Dometic for % of grade out of level. Late to the conversation,but have followed it. I have the level app on my I phone and my driveway is 6%. I have the 3 cu ft Dometic model in my Palomino,so went to the manual and all it says is that the fridge should be level when stopped. In the future will level truck or not pre cool it the night before. I have done so twice in the last year. Seems to cool fine.

RE: Happijac bumper tie downs

I had the same problem when I went from a F150 to F250. I bought new TL for the front with fastguns and used the HJ buttons on the back that were on the F150. both are mounted to the frame,not to the bed.
