RE: New f350 with the exhaust brake button

Do you still have to remove the cab from the chassis to do maintenance on the rear of the engine? ?????

RE: New f350 with the exhaust brake button

I am confused is this a button you push when you want the exhaust brake to kick in or do you leave it on while towing. I do not have the truck yet, just been reading up on them. I leave mine on all the time during towing... It really does a good job.... As soon as you let off the pedal , it engages... Nice addition ...I think you will like it

RE: I-95 in New Jersey

In Jan hug the coast for flat terrain and mildest temps I-287 til it ends at the NJ Turnpike Turnpike south to Del Memorial Bridge Cross Bridge anf Follow I-95 south in Del to Del Route 896 South 896 til it joins with US 301 Follow 301 to Bowling Green, VA and pick up VA State Route 207 207 to I-95 X2 - - EXCEPT - - watch for the southern storms.. last year parts of DC , MD and VA received as much snow or winter weather as us at times... the lower part of 301 would not be my favorite during a snow fall.. I think that I would feel a bit safer on the highway..

RE: Another season ends

This past weekend was my time to put her to bed for the winter:( Blew the lines out , added the pink stuff in the traps and hooked up the battery tender... BUT - - - DW asked me yesterday IF I would want to think about getting out around Christmas ?? REALLY ?? Who are you , and what did you do with my DW :W. . SO THERE IS HOPE Do this several times a year,cold spell, blow lines drain water tanks pink stuff in P traps. Then we will go out for a long weekend. this is done several times a year. Sorry for being misleading.. the surprise is that she NEVER wants to go camping after this time of year.. I have been trying to get her out for years!!! I will winterize 10 times if that means that I get out again..

RE: Complaint about a dealer

Is the complaint about a sale or a repair. It does make a difference. In the case of a sale the CONTRACT is binding on both of you. However if it is not in the written contract the promises of a salesman/dealership cannot be enforced. If a repair then a complaint may be in order if the repair is not up to the standard in the area. So we need to know more. It MAY be binding but that has not stopped people on here from complaining about what they signed... To the op.... FIRE AWAY !!! I need some good rant reeding tonight..

RE: want new 5er

I can honestly say that I have never seen a bed lift/raise from the head side ?? That is always the side against the wall... I guess that you could lay in the bed up-side-down... That will allow the proper side to raise ..:B As far an manufactures . . . You will get everyone's own personal opinion on that... Hit up a local RV show and let your legs do the walking... see what is out there between the makers... you should be able to find a good unit inside your price point... Good Luck.. BTW - my KZ has a King bed that raises the legs up.. unless I pass out , then its my head...

RE: CB Radio - needed?

For emergency use you can pickup a handheld HAM radio (although license is require to broadcast, I doubt you would get in trouble if it were an emergency) I'll have to get one so the next time I want to ask a trucker if I should take the North bypass, the South bypass, or straight thru town I can contact one in China or South America.bumpyI can contact one in China or South America.bumpy I think you missed the important words, "For emergency" of which asking traffic directions is not. Yes.... But you have to admit , it was funny !

RE: CB Radio - needed?

I used to keep a cobra with a magnetic mount K40 antenna in the truck... got to a point that I had to turn the squelch all the way up so my kids (2 daughters) did not hear... Once they stop going with me , I will use it again. Very helpful when it comes to accidents and stoppages . .

RE: Long Island to florida

Well , there are many ways to go.. If it were me I would do the following: Cross the outer bridge crossing into NJ and hop on the NJ turnpike south.. If you can , take it all the way south and cross the Delaware Memorial Bridge into DE.. Hop on 95 south and keep on trucking.. Once you get close to Baltimore , look for signs for 695 EAST.. Francis Scott Key Bridge... take 695 across the bridge and follow back to 95 south below Baltimore follow to Florida.. ----OR--- If you want to avoid the big cities all together you can do the following: follow directions above into DE on 95 south.. Once on 95 exit onto DE rt 896 south... follow to 896/301 south.. follow 301 to 50 west.. cross the Bay Bridge and stay on 50/301.. look for signs for 301 south in Bowie MD... take 301 south all the way down to 207.. that is the bowling green bypass.. take it to 95.. that will drop you on 95 at mile marker 104.. which is about 30 miles north of Richmond VA..

RE: Severe Weather App for Android

I use the app called Tornado on my I phone... I am not sure if it is available on Android but I love it... I can pick certain places to monitor... AND it will monitor wherever I am at... It gives warnings and other information....

RE: Leaving water in fresh water tank

RE: Ford F-350 6.7 V8 Diesel 4WD SRW CC, LB and Towing Capacity

Your scaled weight of 9020# seemed quite high. I have the same truck, (Lariat, fully optioned) and with my 190# butt and full fuel I scaled at 7997#. Not sure what you have in the truck that adds 1023# ? Regardless, you are in the ballpark for the 5'ver you are looking at. yes.. and with my 225# butt . mine is 8150 with a plow frame

RE: Is this a good deal

Looks to be a heck of deal! As with the other posters with the high trade-in values they said to have gotten. Looks like those Ford dealers are giving at or above retail trade-in prices, those dealers must be hard up for sales? I went back to my dealer 5 days after trading mine in to ask if I could get something I left inside by mistake... It was in the back being prepped as the guy just signed the papers on it!.. Not sure of the sale amount , but a resale within 5 days!

RE: Tires and Bugs

quote - - " I had done a visual inspection and the tires had lots of tread. Now," In my eyes , that was your first mistake.... never run tires that sit prolonged periods without checking the air pressure . . I check mine before every trip...
