RE: F-150 Crew Max Tow vs. Hideout 30ft TT

TX, what makes you say that? Would you be opposed to towing a 30ft TT with an early 2000 F250? Based on the numbers, they are very similar vehicles from what I can decifer. I am not trying to argue (new people cant argue on message boards!!). I just am curious because it seems to me that some built up half-tons get a bad rap. You need to go further back than 2000, for a heavy half to have numbers similar to a 3/4 ton! My 1979 F250 Club Cab long bed had a GVWR of 8,300#, that was limited by HP more than anything else. Had big heavy springs, full floating rear axle, and heavy duty running gear. While newer 150/1500 are stronger than before, you need to go back a lot further than 2000 to be close. To the OP's question while past 30' with a lighter TV could get a bit exciting in a cross wind, would rather see him pulling a 5er. but what was your payload? Many 250s, especially diesels, have a smaller payload than some 150s, because of their overall weight.

RE: F-150 Crew Max Tow vs. Hideout 30ft TT

I would not pull a 30' trailer with a 1/2 ton truck...period. Ken Why not? I do it every time I hook up. But then I paid attention to the capabilities of my truck. My TT is well within the trucks towing weights. No manufacturer limits the trailer length, only the trailer weight. I also realized it has a longer wheelbase than many 250s. Plus I adjusted the hitch correctly. The TT follows along just like a puppy, with -0- sway. I guess I just don't understand.

RE: What does 11,000 lbs of towing capacity mean?

For a travel trailer, reduce the manufacturer's rating by at least 1/3. I've recently discovered how much wind drag isn't figured into those numbers. I'd guess a TT about 8,000 would be a comfortable tow. Ford figures their tow capacities with a 60 SQ foot front wall..

RE: What does 11,000 lbs of towing capacity mean?

Thing is. NOT all Eco Boosts can tow 11,000lbs. In fact MOST can't. The truck has to have the right package. It has to have 3.73 rears. And at least the 7500lb GVWR package.

RE: New tires from Discount Tire.... messed up

I've always had good professional service from Discount Tires. But lets be realistic. Tire mounting is not a task done by upper management at any tire store. Thank goodness for that. Upper management couldn't find the lugs

RE: Dry camping with a trailer

We dry camp just like we did when we had the pup. We cook outside, we sit out side. The only battery used is for the fridge. We only go into the TT to sleep. Don't need a generator, don't need a TV, don't need a microwave.

RE: Max Towing Wars - Ford vs Ram

The F-450 has 4.30 gears. Wasn't there just a 7 page thread on here about re-gearing - no advantage to towing with lower rear ratio :h just use the transmission... ? But IF your transmission can't get as low as mine. Mine will tow better. that's where the lower rear gear comes in.

RE: Air Condition high/low question

I usually keep mine on AUTO during the day, and low fan at night. During the day, on AUTO the fan speeds up, AND then slows down as it feels like it needs to do. So I just leave it alone.

RE: Torn between FT or House/Condo

IF you are planning on staying in ONE place. Get the house/condo. IF you are planning on seeing the country. Get the RV. Can't take the house/condo on a trip.

RE: Ocean temperature at Myrtle Beach

Gee, thanks folks! Heading to Myrtle in a week. Could you lie to me a little? No won't lie. But in truth. there is VERY little chance you will see a shark in the ocean. In 60 years of going to the beach. I have only seen them a few times. You do have a good chance of seeing Dolphin feeding though. Another thing you may / could see but I bet won't. Is water spouts. I have seen 2 just off shore from Lake Wood.

RE: Ocean temperature at Myrtle Beach

Here are some interesting statistics about sharks from National Geographic: Who knew toilets and air fresheners could be so dangerous? Well, at least statistically speaking it appears sharks seem to pose less of a threat than many things we encounter every day. In 1996, toilets injured 43,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13. You have a one in 63 chance of dying from the flu and a one in 3,700,000 chance of being killed by a shark. You have a one in 218 chance of dying from a fall and a one in 3.7 million chance of being killed by a shark. In 1996, buckets and pails injured almost 11,000 Americans. Sharks injured 13. In 1996, room fresheners injured 2,600 Americans. Sharks injured 13. The U.S. averages 19 shark attacks a year. Lightning kills about 41 people a year in coastal states alone. Since 1959, Florida has had nine shark attack fatalities. Lightning fatalities = 459. However. On the other hand. You have 0% chance of being eaten alive by a toilet.

RE: Ocean temperature at Myrtle Beach

For me, A Southern Boy. The water in Oct will be too cold. As for the sharks. Yes they are there, and yes they do bite. Woman was bitten on the NC coast last week. A Pirateland surf fisherman caught a 4 foot Shovel head shark while we were at PL over the 4th. I too have seen large Sand Tigers cruising the beach. I hahve stood on the pier and watched sharks swim within 100 feet of swimmers. However. They want to bite me. They better learn to walk.

RE: polarized license plate covers

Best solution: Don't go through a red light. Really. That's how I beat them. Just don't run the light. Simple really. If it is red when you go under. You had time to stop.

RE: Pirateland, Myrtle Beach

Terryallan is correct about the seafood in that area. Most of it ain't fit to eat and overpriced. Hard to beat a good piece of carp. My fav is Fillet of Flounder. With the greasy black skin removed. I won't eat it if that is left on.

RE: Got just basic weights on my F150 hitched up

wouldn't worry about spinning the tires. I do it all the time. Its the curse of having power. If it tows good with no sway. You are good to go.

RE: Pirateland, Myrtle Beach

MOST times when we go to a MB campground, we never leave except for maybe 1 night to eat seafood out somewhere and maybe go to Broadway at the beach. Sometimes we eat at one of the many places there. Strange. In all the years we have been going to different beaches. We have NEVER found any decent seafood. None can compare with the fish camps around here. Even though there are less, and less of them now days. So Terry I guess we'll have to keep eating indecent seafood! :B ... Eric I recon so, Or atleast y'all will.:B I'll just wait till I get home, and go to the fish Camp.:B

Reminder

Do not forget to leave your fridge door open for a few days after you return from a trip. I forgot two weeks ago, and today, had to clean the mold out of it.
