RE: towing capacity

The 3.21 rear end is going to be a hinderance. With that gear I seriously doubt it has a tow pkg which means no extra cooling for the transmission or anything else. Based on this I don't think your truck has what takes to tow a camper of that weight. I had a Hemi Ram with the 3.92 rear end and my current truck has similar power but with 3.42 rear end and definitely notice the difference. I wouldn't even consider towing with a 3.21 gear and my camper is only about 6k lbs.

RE: I pad on Dash

How much of your window will be blocked by putting an ipad on your dash. Unless it's a motorhome with a windshield the size of Utah!

RE: Speed is not your friend

I tow at 75mph here in AZ on the freeway. I am alot more rock solid than alot of other folks around me. I think I've heard this excuse for speeding before: "I know what I'm doing, not like the other guys on the road". X2

RE: Max speed towing.

My tires are rated for 65mph, so I'm happy at 60. In a 4 hr drive, that's only 20 additional minutes drive time. BIG DEAL.

RE: Hit a tree in the rv park

No traveling companion to help guide you back? My wife always guides me so I don't hit trees, tables, posts or back off a cliff.

RE: time for new shoes...

The truck in my signature just got new shoes a few months ago. Cooper Discoverer AT3, same size as yours. My TT weighs 5500 - 6000 lbs depending on the trip. I replaced with original size (P265/65x18). The Coopers have a higher weight rating than the Michelins do. 2604 vs 2469 lbs.

RE: Dog DNA Testing

From Ancestory.com? Just found out my German Shepard isn't german after all but instead an Irish Setter. Had to trade in his Lederhosen for an Irish Kilt!

RE: Awning strap replacement

One person on each arm to open or close it w/o a strap. Any camping supply/RV dealer will probably have replacements.

RE: Earthquake. When does the motorhome rock?

If it's a rockin, don't come a knockin! Sorry, I just couldn't resist! It was too obvious.

RE: So knowing I need tires

The only benefit to bias ply is the cording is not steel so when it comes apart it does not beat on the RV as bad. 1700? is that a 205-14? I would probably go 215-14 for the 1870 rating. Exactly what I did. Went from 205-14 to 215-14 for that very reason.

RE: slow down, or speed up

Tap the camper brake controller or speed up a bit but only momentarily.

RE: Need some advice

Forget the Laramie Pkg. All the extras it includes takes away from the available payload of a Tradesman or an SLT.

RE: recommendation on new tires for my f150

Were I you. I would go to the Cooper Discoverer Plus tires. They have a max psi of 50, and a load rating of 2601lb. more than enough for any 150. I have used them for years. And while the Goodyears will let the TT move around a little. the Coopers will settle it down. They are great for towing. I have used Michelins. Goodyears, Goodrich, and all are more expensive than the Coopers, and the Coopers will tow better, and last longer. X2

RE: Stupid mistake nearly cost me

Your chains are that tight? My safety chains are loose whether there is tension on the bars or not. I have never, ever seen my safety chains under any kind of tension. you called them safety chains but did you really mean the weight distribution bar chains?

RE: Had an oh **** moment!

I could never understand using roto chocks in place of regular tire chocks. I have 4 very heavy duty heavy rubber chocks that I use & the camper has never moved with them in place. I've had the yellow hard plastic ones but these heavy duty commercial chocks work much better & don't require retightening as do x-chocks or roto-chocks. I bought them from "Tractor Supply"
