RE: Ford Escape 2014 2.0L 4 Cylinder Ecoboost w/tow package

I currently own a 2014 Ford Escape 2.0L 4 Cylinder Ecoboost with the factory tow package which is rated for #3500 towing capacity. I have read many forums that mention this vehicle but I have not read many posts about what people have actually towed with the Ford Escape. If anyone on this forum has used or know someone that has used a Ford Escape I would be curious to see what they have physically towed. Thanks You can easily and very safely tow many pop ups and some very small trailer trailers, depending how you load the vehicle and how many people are within. 2 people with all the cargo in the trailer...no problem. X2...been towing with 3500 lb tow ratings for years. These vehicles do a great job for their capability. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Best place to buy A&E awning tube with fabric?

PPL Motorhomes have pretty good prices. They sell all kinds of RV parts. Give them a google and call them. They are very helpful. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Airbag Timbrens installers

Do timbrens carry the full load when they engage or do the coils/leaf springs still carry some weight? Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 1/3 of the way there..

Very nice looking rig! Congrats! Some other things you may also want to look into are the Break Controller and tow mirrors. For the break controller I recommend a Prodigy P2 or Prodigy P3. These are very good controllers. For the Tow Mirrors I recommend the JR Products Grand Aero or Aero 2. These are some of the best clamp on tow mirrors. There are some cheap Tow N' See mirrors that use suction cups to stick to the mirror glass on the side view mirrors. They work okay but they are not the best. I use them now but will be picking up some Aero 2's soon. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Aftermarket wheels on Tow vehicles

You could call Gaylen Fanns used auto parts in Manchester Tennessee. Their phone number is 931-728-4796. Last time I was there they had stacks and stacks of OEM take offs. They may or may not have what you need. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 1/3 of the way there..

Congrats!!! What year Suburban and Can you post pics? I love those things. Have you thought about what size TT you are going for and what kind of weight distribution hitch? If your Sub is a 2000-2006 ish Suburban pay attention to the receiver hitch. The factory one wasn't known for strength and some had issues holding together. It's easily solved by a more robust receiver hitch from the likes of Curt and Reese. Again, congrats! Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Body Shifted Slightly Off Frame

it's worth salvage price...IMHO. I would walk away.

RE: travel trailers

If you are talking a standard weight distribution hitch then I would shoot for something in the 750 -800 lb range. I would use two add on friction sway bars if you go with a standard hitch. I personally would go for the round bar version as I like the tapered spring bars since they give a little better ride (imho) If You are looking for the Equal-I-zer brand then you should be looking at the 1,000 lb model. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 4 cyl?

If your talking about a small fiberglass teardrop style camper you should be fine. The stand up trailers like a Scamp or a Casita may be doable but you will really need to pay attention to ratings and what not. I pulled 3000 lbs with my 4 cal Kia Sorento but it had about 200 HP. Worked like a champ, What year RAV4? Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Thinking about buying a 5.7 Dodge half ton truck.

Thanks for the feedback BillyW and OP for posting. I was looking for some feedback on this truck too. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Thinking about buying a 5.7 Dodge half ton truck.

I test drove a Used 2014 Hemi Ram 1500 with the 8 speed and it was fantastic. Very powerful and fast. I think it would be great match for your trailer. Just watch how you load the truck as it can run out of payload pretty quick like most Half tons do. The only thing that kinda concerns me about towing a TT with a Hemi Ram Half ton is the exhaust comes straight out the back of the truck. I'm not sure if that exhaust resonance reflects off the front of the trailer back towards the cab. I just don't know. Maybe someone with experience can let us know if that's actually a problem. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: 2017 F350 5th wheel preparation package

I'd go the B&W route myself. I'd use a B&W Companion or an Andersen Ultimate fifth wheel hitch. I like the idea of one large hole in the bed instead of four or five anyway :D Thanks! Jeremiah Really on an aluminum bed? That should be an interesting test. I will call GM and see if you want to do that one. OH BTW, all RAMs come with the puch mounts on the frame even if the option was not included. I installed my myself. Like the Ford the bed bolts did not come out easy. Chris GM would use a plastic hitch on their test. :D I would run the companion on an Aluminum bed Super Duty and not even think about it. The weight is transferred through the bed to the hat channels to the frame. Shouldn't be much deflection/Dents with the B&W with the bed corrugation filler strips they use now. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Pro Series RB2 Weight Distributing Hitch

I just use whatever grease happens to be in my grease gun. These things can wear pretty fast without the grease so good choice to use it. Don't forget to grease the ball too:) Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: Pro Series RB2 Weight Distributing Hitch

ProSeries makes a great standard Weight Distribution hitch! No need to spend a. Inch of money on a more expensive standard hitch. This one will Work for you just fine. The Draw bar is the part that goes into the receiver. The head mounts on the end of the draw bar. Thanks! Jeremiah

RE: I think I goofed.

Something I learned on this generation F150. Many people look for a transmission cooler and see a cooler on the bottom drivers side of the radiator support and assume this is a transmission cooler. This is a power steering cooler. So, OP, please verify that you have a factory transmission cooler. Thanks! Jeremiah
