RE: Gas Choice

Poor gas quality seems to cause generator carb problems. How many of you choose to pay a little more for non-ethenal gas? Thanks I haven't read all the posts or do I care to, the way to get good gas is to stay with busiest stations to get the freshest fuel. Nothing that you are running will have a problem with E10 but if you have something that has never had E10 run through it it will take a few tanks to clean the fuel system out. I run E10 in my truck and everything else that we have including our generators, mowers and outboard motor with no problems at all. Denny

RE: Dish tailgater losing signal

The info that Denny gave was spot on, everything is working fine, I just need to order a new rubber wheel from king controls. After doing some research, cant seem to come up with a replacement wheel, any suggestions out there? I think you will have to call King Control's directly. Denny

RE: Dish tailgater losing signal

Take the cover off your Tailgater and see if there is any rubber dust in the bottom, if there is check the rubber wheel that moves the dish up and down. Link Denny

RE: Dexter 8k axles, nev-r-lube bearings

Were your original axle Dexter or Lipert, if they were Lipert that was your problem not Never-R-Lube thats a Dexter product. lipert made their own and it was failure. Denny They were Kodiak hubs on Alko axles. You are correct that Nev-R-Lube is a Dexter name but they both use the same 50mm bearing cartridge. Lippert has never made bearings, they source them from other vendors as does Dexter. Its the design of the hub that can make a difference, the center of the bearing has to be centered on the weight bearing part of the hub. The same goes for the wheels they have to have 0 offset with Nev-R-Lube bearing where standard bearings with take a offset to a point. Denny

RE: Dexter 8k axles, nev-r-lube bearings

2 year old Nev-R-Lub left me stranded for a week waiting for a new axle. I have since switched to the old fashion repackable bearings when I had the MorRyde suspension installed. I use to check the hubs with a temp gun but when it failed we had been driving for about 3 hours and I don't remember if I checked the temp during the prior stop but doubt it would have indicated a failure pending 3 hours later. I believe a failure of this type happens quickly. Were your original axle Dexter or Lipert, if they were Lipert that was your problem not Never-R-Lube thats a Dexter product. lipert made their own and it was failure. Denny

RE: Ford F-350 switches

Remove the panel below the steering wheel and the side cover on the side of the dash and you will find them straped to the wiring harness, different switches have different amperages. Denny

RE: Dexter 8k axles, nev-r-lube bearings

I "had" never lubes on my 2009 5er. This past summer while heading out to Alberta, the left rear brake drum broke up and the only thing left was the part that held the wheel studs. When a repairman came to the 5er where we were in a campground in Edmonton, he found the bearing to be damaged. He tried to get a new drum and bearing but Lippert told him they didn't make parts for that axle anymore. So got rid of the never lubes and got 2 new Dexter axles with bearings that can be greased when needed. The summer before last, my repairman, here, was able to change out the never lubes and one fell apart in his hand. I have never liked having them because I could never grease them myself. Lipert made their own version of Nev-R-Lube, they were not Dexter bearings or axles. Denny

RE: Towing with full fresh water tank?

Get 1 or 2 pieces of 2x2" angle iron the same length as the outer edges of the frame. Bolt them up under the fresh water tank. That's how my fresh water tank has additional support from the factory. Hopefully I'll get a chance to find out how rough the roads are in Alaska are in a couple years.:) Waiting for the wife to retire. When you do it take the whole summer and be prepared to dry camp to get the full experience, most CG are dry camping anyway. Don't miss Banff and Jasper NPs in Canada along with Skagway and Hyder (get Hyderized) in Alaska, we spent about as much time in BC as we did in Alaska. One more must is spend the 4th of July Chicken Alaska ;) Denny

RE: Towing with full fresh water tank?

Last time i checked Alaska has water...................... You shouldn't need to bring your own IMHO One thing you learn when traveling in and to Alaska, dump whenever you can and fill the tank whenever you can. I would install a piece of 3/4 plywood under the tank, that way you will never have to worry about it agian. Denny We were in redding California and sitting around a campfire with a group of campers. They asked where I was going , I said to the redwoods then up the coast to maybe Alaska. The consensus was i would be wrong to take my new truck and TT there unless I wanted to make them old in a hurry.....never went and when we do shortly we will fly in do the glaciers then the ship down the coast. I've been to Alaska and traveled with a full tank of water the whole time but our tank is well supported. As far as rough roads there were some but I wouldn't pass up the trip of a lifetime because of them, the roads in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia were worse, we've also been on the roads in California and they aren't anything special either. The biggest problem was people trying to drive fast instead of slowing down and enjoying the trip. Denny

RE: Ford Navigation

If anyone has the Ford Sync 2 like my 2013 has be sure to download the free 3.8 updated from Ford, it's a great improvement over the last update with updated voice recognition and some input improvements. Denny

RE: Bad Dometic RM1350 - Repair or replace

All residential refrigerators I've moved have removable doors. Yes but the big ones will not fit through the door. DennyWould that be countertop depth? Actually, I don't know how wide a standard RV door is. I know mine is narrow. Most trailers have something in the way so the larger refrigerators can't be turned after going through the door. Most all refrigerators are a standard depth it's the width that counts, also the RV refigerators aren't as deep as residential units so the residential with set out in the room a few inches in most cases.

RE: Bad Dometic RM1350 - Repair or replace

Fins, no coil. I should have said cold plate with the fins attached, the coils are behind the plate. Denny

RE: Bad Dometic RM1350 - Repair or replace

That number is what they call a 4door similar to a side by side in residential and it is big. The people we know that have installed a residential brought it in through a window. Does your lower box coil frost all the way to the end of the coil, if so the cooling part is working. I would check the gaskets and make sure they good and the doors are closing all the way. RV refrigerators don't like the door to be faned, they are very slow to recover. Denny

RE: Blinking check engine light

Thanks guys. Yea I'll take my time to narrow things down a bit. I'll replace a cop or an 02 sensor if can narrow it to that. Lol reason I can't just throw parts into it.... Since I bought in May..... This issue Tranny hesitates going into reverse when warm New front drivers wheel bearing New belt U joints Balance tires Backer plates and ebrake parts. I think I have 1200$ in it since May. I wouldn't call it a lemon yet I just want to NOT put any more money in it for few months lol. You bought a high mileage truck so some things will have to be replaced. Last year I bought a 03 F150 to save putting miles on my DRW, I changed all the fluids, belt and idler pulleys, front rotors and pads all around , idler arm, rotated tires, new battery and a few other things to make sure it was relable truck, it's all part of buying used.

RE: What Ethanol Does And Doesn't Do (PDF)

Just stop the Ethanol subsidy to the corn farmers. The subsidy makes it a no-brainer for farmers to grow corn for ethanol. Path of least resistance. Easy income. If the farmers can't make a profit on a crop then they'll switch to a different crop. This would throw the ethanol fuel industry into a tailspin as the production costs would increase due to insufficient domestic supply of raw materials. There was never a subsidy for Ethanol to the farmers, there was one to the ethanol plants but that expired a while back. There is still farm subsidies but they cover all farm crops not just corn and come into play when the prices are low. Denny
