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

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

The study looks at E85 not E10 that's the norm, I've traveled all over the country and I can count on one hand how many stations even had E85, not sure who paid for the study but it was a waste of money. Denny We have a lot of E85 up here, in MN. My buddy Roger used to fill his 2001 Impala with 1/2 tank of regular and 1/2 tank of E85. He said mileage dipped by 2 MPG and I believe him as I later owned this same car and running regular only (E10), I matched his numbers. We were just in MN ad I never seen any E85 but I wasn't looking for it. I've used E10 and reg fuel in my V10 and now my 6.2 and I can tell no difference in mileage. Denny

RE: 2017 Heavy Duty 2500/250 - Gas Engine Changes?

The F250 and F350 with the 6.2 gas gets a 25 ft lb increase in torque and the F250 gets a gas only transmission, the Supper Duty also gets the all aluminum body. Denny

RE: Hot Optima

Wow. Someone overcharged that battery??? I simply don't understand why anyone would use Optima batteries when for about the same money they can get a standard construction AGM battery with twice the capacity. I use Optima batteries, the first set lasted 13.5 years. The set I just installed are bigger than my last ones (D31M instead of D34M), I also looked and I never found anything that had twice the capacity and most cost more, the new ones have 75AH and because of the way they are made I was able to use my old sliding tray be angling them. If you buy Optimas don't buy them off the internet, read the warranty, they have a paragraph in RED that says they will not warranty them because they aren't authorized dealers and the batteries may be rejects. The ones I bought had a little different number because they came from a Interstate Dealer, I can warranty them at any Interstate Dealer in the country. Denny

RE: Dometic Refrigerator inoperative

A easy way to figure out if it's the cooling unit or the control is to take the electric heater wires and wire it directly to 120 volts. If the unit cools properly it's a control problem if it doesn't it's the cooling unit. If when the dealer changed out the cooling unit and didn't seal around the outside area where the cooling cools are the unit will not work like it should. Denny

RE: 1956 F100 what can it pull?

Are you suggesting building up the suspension to a 3/4 ton because the wheel base is short? The trailer we want is rated for a 1/2 ton. We might have to consider a shorter trailer maybe go 20-24' instead of 26' but feel the weight of the make we want from Outdoors RV, will work for us. Just checking to make sure. I'm suggesting building it up for the weight and sway, the Volarie was a very light weight car and it works great for a street rod buy itself but I don't think it would be up to hauling a trailer. I owned a 76 Volarie and it wasn't that impressive when it came to the front end or any other part of the car. If you don't want to go to a 8 bolt setup look for a 7 bolt F150 or one that was rated as a F250 in the I think the 79 to 00 range of years. Denny

RE: 1956 F100 what can it pull?

Great project and should look great when done but what are you using for a front suspension, our friends that we just left have a 53 F100 and he used a Plymouth Volarie suspension up front. By looking at your frame I can't tell what you are going to use. The stock straight axle and steering box would be my last choice. You are building this to pull a trailer so I would build the frame and suspension with that in mind, I would use a later model gear end out of a heavier truck with 8 bolt wheels, you would have to have it narrowed but you would already have disk brakes. For the front I would look into a truck independent suspension you could graft into it, again with 8 bolt wheels. You don't have to stay with Ford because the 2WD I Beams would be to wide and you can't narrow them. Look at getting the front complete frame from a latter model GM PU, you may also consider using the GM rear end so all the wheel bolts are the same plus you won't have to buy the expensive after market disk brake setup.
