RE: Hot Water is Only Warm Water

Did you accidentally turn it off? Check to be sure the outside shower is not on, do you have gas? Or are you trying to run it on electricity?

RE: Need more help with tow vehicle/truck trade/purchase!?

The two Ford diesels your considering are so problem prone I would never suggest one to anyone. Of the rest, I would pass also. Get a 2500 series and go happy. Stronger frame, better tires and wheels, stronger overall trucks. Of the earlier version 2500 trucks in diesel, I would suggest a 5.9L Cummins if you can find one. Prices are usually sky high for a reason.

RE: Should we buy used 5th wheel

Certainally you can buy used. Age, condition, and where you plan to live travel are all important considerations in any buying decision.

RE: Best 245/75 R16 truck tires

Currently running Yokahamas on my dually. Reasonably priced, quiet ride. I dont put a lot of miles on my truck so they should be good for several years.

RE: lower columbia hwy. 30, oregon

Been a while, but the last time I was on it, it beat my fiver nearly to death. If your coming from Portland area, head north to Longview and cross the bridge there.

RE: Santa Rosa CA to Olympic NP

Not the best way to see the coast, but I assume your heading east after,so US101 is a great drive. Hope you have reservations though. Summers on the coast can be very busy.

RE: Does anyone know where I can purchased this tee from?

Go buy a new faucet at Lowes, Home Depot or your favorite plumbing supply store.

RE: 12v Golf Cart Battery?

Any old cheap GP24 RV/Marine battery will do what you want.

RE: Which sewer tote tank do you use?

Pick the one that is on sale this week. The difference between the two major brands are not enough to worry about.

RE: FW contacting TV bed rails

With 6 inches of clearence you should never have a problem. Except maybe in a really extreme situation. And in that case you likely would nevet be able to move the combination.

RE: Ford F 150

A 30 foot TT behind a 150 anything is certainally opening you up for some unpleasant trips. The huge sail you call a TT can move even the biggest of trucks around in the right situation. Personally I would get a 2500 gas motor for the added stability, stiffer springs, better tires, etc.

RE: Considering a New Tow Vehicle

I hate to say it, but Ford Eco boost or Ram eco diesel would offer your best economy choices. As long as your staying with small trailers either would be a fine choice. My preference would be the Ram.

RE: Where is the factory

Which one? Thor is a huge company with dozens of brand names including Montana.

RE: 5th Wheel Towing w/ 2001 F150 7700

Your making a LOT of assumptions. None of them likely will turn out to be true. With a 150 you will be lucky to have 1,000 pounds of payload. That is before you fill the gas tank, add wife, or other stuff. Dry weights are a false number designed to sell unsuspecting people more than they can actually handle. Read, read, READ. Then READ some more. In the real world most 150s are capable of handling TTs with a total load of around 7000 pounds.

RE: Towing question

Yup, sorry but you do not have enough truck to tow much more than a tent trailer. The 4.6 in that vintage of a truck is seriously underpowered. Fine for occasional load of 2X4s, but dont think of trying to tow. Get educated on towing and weights, learn all you can, get a sufficient truck, then go trailer shopping.

RE: New to tt's help with weight....

Nope. Dry weight is a brochure number from the first trailer they designed. It is meaningless. Your tongue weight is going to be about 12% of the trailers loaded ready to go weight. If you want to know if you can pull a trailer, take its GVWR and use that. Evenmif you never hit that number you will at least know the worst case.

RE: New Ram 3500 Pricing

Anywhere from 38K for a Tradesman to 65K for a fully loaded one. A middle of the ground Laramie he should be able to drive off for around 50K.

RE: dura therm comfort control thermostat

First, you cannot run two AC units off of 30 amp service. The rear AC is humming? Then something is wrong. You could have a bad start capacitor, a frozen motor or a locked compressor. DO NOT continue to try and run it until you figure out what is wrong. 30A dryer outlet is probably 240VAC. Sadly your RV runs on 30A 120VAC. So its quite possible you have cooked a lot of stuff besides the AC unit. I think you might need to find some professional help.
