RE: Tire flex

More than likely "tire squirm." Different than flex. Mine took about a thousand miles to break in. Now they are fine. I had the same thing happen with a set of Falkens on my work truck. After several hundred miles, the problem had just vanished. But until then, sometimes it felt like the tire was about to roll underneath the truck. :B

RE: Cash rebates taxed?

I've never heard of that as well. Sounds like he was wanting you to not take the rebates and then somewhere in that stack of papers you sign is the form stating you forfeit your rebates to the dealer "if there are any".

RE: Greatest fear finally reared its ugly head

From the title, I figured a snake came out from underneath your seat while you were driving.

RE: Residential Refrigerator Problem

On that note, I'll throw in my .02. I love our residential fridge. Its huge, has a great ice maker, and we never dry camp. The biggest downside? Fortunately for me, I paid for the Forest River 2 year warranty. 13.5 months after we bought our Vengeance, the fridge couldn't get cooler than 38 degrees in the freezer and around 48 in the fridge. The compressor had gone bad. Forest River paid almost $900 to have the compressor replaced. It would have been cheaper to just replace the fridge but they are so big, the trouble of getting it out and a new one brought in was too much. They said these fridges are actually installed before the slideouts are put on.

RE: Unusual Tow Vehicle

I recall some member here pondering the idea of getting one of those to haul his camper. I've driven them many, many times working for a delivery company many moons ago and then for landscaping. A small TT like the one RobertRyan posted is about as big as I'd want to go. Too many folks are HP hungry.

RE: VINs and Window Stickers

Thanks mr176. But that site said my window sticker has not been released yet. :h I have my original window sticker. But when you look my VIN through the NADA website, it shows my truck as an F450 XL work truck. The stated value is around $55,000. I am in the process of refinancing my truck and when the bank looked up my VIN, they said they couldn't approve the loan because I owed more than the truck cost. Weird issue with NADA. Anyway, I went to the UPS store and had them make me a full size copy of the original window sticker and mailed it to the bank. So problem solved anyway.

RE: Robby Gordon never learns

after motorsport officials flagged banning him for hooning in Darwin’s CBD :h Anyway. Not a cool move. But banning him from racing in the whole country? Seems more than extreme. Crikey!

RE: It's a dry heat

120 has got to be tough. But once in a blue moon, we'll get a day down here where the air will be dry but the temps stay around 100. I work outside all day and I love those days. When your sweat can actually dry off, it feels amazing. Most of the time, my hot sweat stays on my skin until I can dry myself off with a towel. My biggest problem with the high, dry heat? I usually get dehydrated. I rarely feel thirsty because it feels so much better and then all of a sudden, I realize its too late and I start showing signs of dehydration.

RE: Slideout Issue

I have the hydraulic slideouts. Today I did some measuring and some "eyeballing". I can tell the slide is not coming in or going out evenly. The obvious guess is one side jumped a couple of teeth or so. So what next? I have that danged coroplast underneath so that's got to be moved out of the way before I can access the motor or whatever it is that's the problem. Any suggestions of what to expect before I get in there?

RE: Where's the light switch?

My LED lights on the cap have the switch on the control panel where all my drain valves and water hook ups are.

RE: 2017 Fords and RDS Tanks

Ever hear of Nationwide Wholesalers? I got my aux custom made to my measurements by RDS through them for less that I could have bought it from RDS. It was shipped direct from RDS to me. My drawing was of an RDS tank with notations and indicated changes i wanted. Came exactly as I wanted. I like that idea. May have to go that route next time. Thanks.

RE: 2017 Fords and RDS Tanks

OK ladies. I'm not blaming Northern Tool. This tank is built differently from the picture. The tool box on top is smaller than the tank. It is built that way so the tank can slide underneath the front lip of the bed of the truck. But on the 2017 Super Duties, that small lip on the bed is now a large wall. It does not fit underneath the lip so there's now that space between the tank and the front wall. Add the fact that the tool box is set back and you have a pretty large distance back to your tool box from the front of the truck bed. Looks goofy more than anything. I have already dropped off the tank at a local welding shop and we discussed how to reshape the tank the way it should have been built. I imagine RDS will change it to be very similar to how I'm doing it if someone wants one for a 2017 Super Duty. As was stated in the last line of my original post, "But until RDS redesigns these tanks for the new 2017 Super Duty bed, I pass this along to spare others the aggravation." That was the point of this thread. So spare me your moral sarcasm. Nobody blamed Northern Tool. The fees would be between me and RDS. Northern is only the go-between.

RE: Westlake Load Range G Tires - good or bad?

Total opinion here. But I have had great success with Westlakes. I do have G614s on my Vengeance but that's because they had some no name E rated tire to begin with so I felt I had to change. But if it had come with G rated Westlakes, I would have stayed with them until they wore out. Once you go G rated, it changes things regarding blow outs. G rated tires are overkill for most campers but the way so many E rated tires fail, overkill is becoming more and more normal everyday.

VINs and Window Stickers

is there any way to get my original window sticker online by typing in my VIN on a website? I know there used to be but from what I can find, its gone or I can pay at least $25 and hope that's the right place.

RE: 2017 Fords and RDS Tanks

The 90 gallon combo has a larger fuel tank than the tool box. The tool box stops short of the front wall of the tank by several inches. That allows for the tank to be mounted all the way to the wall but the tool box lid won't come close to hitting the back of the truck cab. Now that I can't put it all the way forward, the tool box sits even further back. It almost looks goofy. These things are indeed not an "end all" scenario. But for $1000, I wish I could get a tank that fit as well as it did for my 2015 truck.

2017 Fords and RDS Tanks

I'm in a predicament right now. I ordered my 90 gallon RDS combo tank the week after I brought the truck home. It arrived at the dealership and the following week, I took it to the dealer to have the tank installed. That's where the problems arose. The new aluminum bed for the Super Duties does not work well at all with the RDS design right now. The tabs at the bottom for bolting to the bed do not line up with the ridges in the bed so they are not touching the surface. The RDS tank also is made to fit underneath the front lip of the bed. But the new aluminum bed has a much larger surface so the tank will not fit underneath. This just takes up more bed space. I called Northern about returning it and they also gave me the RDS number to discuss this issue with them. The guy I spoke with understood the problem and said he would be passing that information along to the guy who designs the truck tanks. Last night I got an email from Northern telling me how to return the tank. It also stated I had to pay the shipping costs (over $100) plus pay a 15% restocking fee. Needless to say, I'll be calling Northern today. But until RDS redesigns these tanks for the new 2017 Super Duty bed, I pass this along to spare others the aggravation.

RE: 2017 F350 diesel srw owners?

Take a look at this pic of Rodney's. Do you "need" them? Probably not. The truck is designed to pull with a load on the rear. But would you want them? That's your call. I'd do them or air bags. "taken's" new F350

RE: Won't take fuel

My 2013 F350 (gas) does that. I have to pull the nozzle almost half way out of the opening and then lower the handle so the nozzle is almost horizontal to the ground. If I do that, it fills it up full speed. I guess what I'm asking is have you tried various angles of the diesel nozzle?

Slideout Issue

Coming home from our last trip, the living room had difficulty coming in. Both the bedroom slide and living room slide are on the same switch. The bedroom comes in first and then the living room. My guess is because the bedroom is so much lighter. Anyway, when the bedroom slide came in, the living room didn't. The motor was still pulling but the slide didn't move. I ran it back out some, then ran it back in and it grabbed and came on in. But now that I'm home, the slide seems a little different. It doesn't quite sound the same and it may be coming in slightly crooked. But that's just eye-balling it. When its fully out or fully in, it looks normal. Any ideas where to start first? Maybe one side got slightly off track compared to the other? I'm just guessing so far.
