RE: Andersen Ultimate Hitch /King Ping Stabalizer ?

I use one of these: http://www.shoprvparts.com/product/16524F/gooseneck-king-pin-stabilizer.html or if you have one with the "cup" that the king pin sits in you could use a some plate steel weld a section of pipe to fit in the cup and either weld or bolt a ball onto the opposite side of the plate. Thank you DirtyOil....would you mind taking a little more time with your post and give me a little more detail? I have the cup version that is pretty adjustable and know a few folks that can weld. I think you are on to something I just cannot vision it on your post. Thank you!! Here you go RollingRockTX: http://i.imgur.com/2UxDSfQl.png]http://i.imgur.com/2UxDSfQl.png one could either bolt it together or better yet weld the tubing and ball to the plate. The tubing diameter smaller then the tripod "cup" so as to slide inside the cup, drill holes into tubing to match holes in cup for "locking pin". That is awesome thank you for taking the time to do that. I kind of figured it out but this visual is very helpful. Thanks again!! RR

RE: Andersen Ultimate Hitch /King Ping Stabalizer ?

We have an Andersen hitch, and are very happy with it. We've found that X-chicks are more effective at reducing trailer wiggle than a kingpin stabilizer. I have the x chocks as well, they help but the wiggle from the back to the front is only bad when they go up and down the stairs. The stairs happen to be the furthest back.

Andersen Ultimate Hitch /King Ping Stabalizer ?

How-d folks I just ordered a new Andersen Ultimate Hitch #3200 (for the rails) to replace our Reese. Here is the question. We sometime use A tripod kig-pin stabilizer b/c we have a rear loft FW with stairs and we get a tad worn out feeling that little wiggle at the front of the camper from the kids going up and down. We also have JT installed. Having this new setup, how could this tripod be modified to work or if have one and come up with something different, we are all ears. Thank you. RR

RE: RollingRock's F250 scared me on last trip

X2 on Aquanet. It became standard procedure for me when I was fixing 6.0s. Be sure you start watching boost. Your sequence sounds like it may be over boosting at low RPMs, which can indicate sticking turbo vanes. Sometimes this won't trigger a check engine light. Bryan the tech said the same thing but I don't think it was overboosting at lower RPM's but I am going to change my Edge Insite PID to watch it more closely.

I have heard that a little Aqua Net air spray will help with the boots sticking. +1 good tip.

More importantly how did you shoot? Not great, new bow for 3D. It was fun though. Thanks for asking. RR

RE: RollingRock's F250 scared me on last trip

Replace the boot. I too had this exact same problem and the boots just stretch over time. It shouldn't have needed hitting with sandpaper. It didnt come that way. It will do it again, it's just a matter of time. Yup, new boot and clamps, no charge for install...the trick on these boots, especially the top side, is the angle. When boost is applied they move, and on the old camp, there was a little wiggle at the camp and it polished it over time, that is why they hit the intercooler with a little sand paper.

RollingRock's F250 scared me on last trip

Well, It finally happened to me. I was pulling to Paris Texas for an archery event and boom the intercooler boot let go and left me stranded on the highway. A few lessons learned from this. Breaking down in a Thunderstorm is BAD....breaking down in a Thunderstorm on a 2 lane highway SUCKS. Once the rain let up I jumped up on the engine and realized that the hose camp popped off so i was able to grab some basic tools in the truck and get it back on. But it let go again about 5 miles down the road. A buddy was nearby and brought me a new clamp and we got it put on and again 5 miles or so, it let go again. I was able limp to Paris, about 15 miles to the Ford shop. They came out to the highway to look at the truck. Turns out I wasn't getting it tight enough and that the intercooler intake was a little polished so they got some sand paper out and went after it. Then they got it all put back together and torqued to the right specs and off we went. So if you get a new intercooler boot kit, make sure you get new clamps too. Don't use the old ones. Secondly, major shout out to the dealership in Paris Texas. They didn't charge me a dime for the fix. So the ol gal is back on the road kicking again. It's been awhile since I posted so I hope all is well here at RV.net.
