RE: F150 2.7 22MPG vs Ram ED 23MPG

RE: Can't enter Safe Mode

Pressing it once will work if you hit it at exactly the right time. If you miss the correct time, and just hold the key down, then it will just go ahead and boot. That's why you press the key repeatedly: you don't have to know the exact time to press the key. I can't follow this logic. You're implying the MS directions are wrong? Like they never were before? This is the way I've always done it.

RE: Duramax Issue

Having the same truck, sure hate to hear of your problems and being far from home always seems to compound the problem. Being at least a year and 15000 miles out of warranty, it would have been nice of Gm to help but I understand their position. I have always used OEM fuel filters and changed them at the recommended 15k mile intervals. Having the same truck, I don't believe this is the "recommended interval" for fuel filter. I use the fuel monitor and usually change it at 20%. To avoid a long story, last year truck went into a reduced power mode about 6 miles after refueling. Turned out it was a plugged fuel filter, the fuel monitor reading 0%. I now keep fuel receipt until next fill up.

RE: Installing TPMS sensors on my brand new F-450 truck

Well, the TPMS sure has turned out to be worth it, one of the dually tires has gone down in the cold a lot more than the other three so I will be watching it. Couldn't tell by looking but about 20# difference is sure to cause problems for tire wear at least. Are they pass thru sensors?

RE: Where should we go & what should we see?

Unless you all are real cavers, one day at Mammoth... While Mammoth Cave is "mammoth", if you wish to see formations visit Diamond Caverns which is close by.

RE: PVC vs EPDM roof for 5er

You should have a 12 yr warranty with any roof product. If they install it correctly then it should be good for a minimum of 12 yrs. Do you plan to keep the 5'er longer? Great selling point, but the warranty is about worthless. The stuff is fairly cheap and of course the warranty is pro-rated. Installation is not included. After 5 years you not recover enough to pay to have it taken off. I am talking about the EPDM. Don't know about the others.

RE: TV tire pressure?

I asked the Dodge dealership and was told no change in tire pressure for towing for my 2014 Ram 1500. Which is what my tire manufacturer recommended. But.......

RE: Installing TPMS sensors on my brand new F-450 truck

Thanks everyone for letting me know about the difference between the sidewall PSI numbers and the door sticker PSI numbers. You may want to contact the tire manufacturer on this.

RE: Help!

Pulling ahead further than you think will help a lot. You then do not have to turn the truck as much. Any time you think the fiver is turning too quick, stop and pull ahead a little to straighten it out.

Directions needed JAX, FL

Headed for the mouse soon. Should I stay on 95 at Jax or 295 bypass? Any suggested campgrounds nearby for overnite? Thanks!

RE: Electrical issue

Had that happen once and it was a bad GFI. Happen when I used any outlet on that circuit.

RE: Pickup bed step

AMP Research BedStep I checked those out when looking for steps and they scared the cr^p out of me. I could see me catching my foot on the tailgate cable. I use the Bully sidestep when hooked to the fiver. Access thru or over the V gate when unhooked.

RE: I'm confused about propane.

All I know is that I fill 20 lb. tank at local Quick fill for $12.99. It is on a scale but the meter reads in gallons, usually around 4.5 gal.

RE: Tow vehicle fuel tank size

........as far as the auxiliary tanks go, does your stock fuel gauge get left behind when on the aux tank, and you strictly go by mileage, or how does that part work? I have the Transfer Flow, readout for both OEM and AUX plus total for both. Expensive system but the price is long forgotten for this neat system.

RE: Tailgate while towing question?

What do you all do? What are the potential downsides to towing with the tailgate in place? Don't know about presently and other states, but years ago a truck WITHOUT a tailgate in NYS would net you a nice fine.

RE: Small Grey Tank drain pipe

Is there a reason for making the grey tank drain smaller? Money.

RE: Lighting/bulb question

I would start by buying the 36 LED panel in warm white and see how you like it. You can also buy a 48 led 5050 panel if the 36 is not bright enough. I would just buy 10 of them for $2 each as with both on they will be plenty bright enough. I used the 24 SMD panel in most of the lights and the 48 SMD in the bathroom and over the sofa where I read a lot. The 24 are a little dim; the 36 SMD would be better or 48 SMD if you want it bright.

RE: Transfer Flow

I would have given anything to be able to go from point a to point b without having to fill up every 200 miles. It's pricey but 720 miles without stopping for fuel(40gal/toolbox) is nice!
