RE: Pulling a Travel Trailer across I70

You will need to be in 2nd gear going down to stay off the brakes and will see 5K RPM's. Just put it in tow/haul and let the computer do its thing and you should have no trouble at all.

RE: Pulling a Travel Trailer across I70

Yea, I'd be concerned as I am now contemplating such a trip with my 3/4 T Suburban with 6.0L gas engine. I'm not sure it will make it UP the mountains. It probably will make it in 1st gear at 15 mph but I'm not sure I want to do that. One also loses horsepower at altitude. My 8.1L Suburban made it just fine. I was worried too hauling 8500lbs with my 5.4L over the mountains. It was actually a piece of cake. We spent 10 weeks in CO and UT and crossed 6 passes over 9500 feet. Will be back in the high country again this summer and won't give it a second thought this time around. I'm sure you will have no problems. As APT said just press on the gas. I am always more concerned going down than up. Keep your RPM's around 4K going down and that tranny should hold you back just fine.

RE: Annual cost to fulltime

What people spend is going to vary greatly. You simply need to come up with a budget for the way YOU want to travel. What others do or spend is meaningless.

RE: How crowded is SE Utah in early May

We stayed a Cadillac Ranch in Bluff when in that area.

RE: Sam's Town RV Park In Las Vegas: any experience?

Arizona Charlie's has 70 foot pull thru concrete pads. Was pretty decent. Never stayed at Sam's.

RE: Cherokee NC KOA

Take US 23 at Waynesvile which merges with US74. Take US74 west to US441. Turn right on US441 then right on Big Cove Road. You should see KOA signs. It's a few miles from the last turn. There is a sharp curve after you pass River Valley Campground. go see "Unto These Hills" outdoor drama about the Trail of Tears. http://cherokeeadventure.com/ Mapping software may say take rt 19(shorter route), but if you are smart follow the above outlined route. I drove 19 without the trailer and then realized firsthand why folks on here recommend the above route, which is exactly the same route we took when we were there a few years ago.

RE: Registration

Az doesnt check vin's anymore so just have someone register it for you. They did one year ago when I registered my trailer.

RE: Do I need WDH to get it from dealer to storage?

Transporters take trailers all over the country without WDH or sway control and somehow they seem to make it.

RE: Getting across western PA

I80 is a piece of cake on that section. A couple of 1000 foot climbs along the way but the grades are no more than about 3%. Some very short 6% grades here and there. Overall a very pleasant drive.

RE: Placerville to Ridgway, Colorado

You will go up about 2700 feet from Placerville to the top of the Dallas Divide on a steady, but not steep climb. Going down the other side is about a 6% grade for 4-5 miles. Good road with nice scenery. Not mountain driving with big drop offs or anything like that.

RE: dry truck weight

On my 08 F250, axle ratings are: Front 5600 Rear 6100 My door sticker also says 65 PSI. I run them at 75 when loaded up. Max is 80. Same axle ratings on my 2010. My door sticker says 75 all around.

RE: WDH - I think I understand

Waz, read and understand what APT wrote and then you can make an informed decision.

RE: Grand Junction Colorado

The Colorado National Monument is awesome. Pretty up on the Mesa too.

RE: Luray KOA

The pull thru sites 46-51 are really long. We usually get pull thrus, but I inadvertently booked a back in at Luray. Site was number 102 and was about 120 feet deep and was the best campsite we have stayed in ever in about 150 campgrounds.

RE: utah trip

I actually enjoyed the Valley of the Gods (peaceful with very few people) more than Monument Valley(crowded and the road was awful). We went up the Dugway on our way over to Natural Bridges but not down. Of course not towing and parts of the Dugway are skinny. Don't miss the Goosenecks. We stayed in Bluff for four nights to explore that area.

RE: WDH - I think I understand

The WDH works exactly as APT described.

RE: Anyone tow with a trailblazer ext 4.2 with 410 ??

I don't remember the 6 having anything but the 3.42 axle. I used to have an 05 Envoy. I think with the 8 you could 3.73's. Have never heard of 410's in the TB/envoy. Mine had a 500 TW limit with W/D.

RE: Busted Water Filter Canister!

Yep, our Water Pur broke in the same spot (4 years old) last summer while we were in the trailer in the middle of the afternoon. Just fell off broken just under the threads. I now make it a habit to turn off the water valve when we leave for the day in case something else breaks. Thank God we were there when it happened.

RE: F150 Vs F250

On the 2014 model F150 HD, the tires were LT "E" rating. I just priced out the following on the Ford website: F150 XLT Crew cab 4X4 Ecoboost Max Tow / HD payload priced at $45,200 F250 XLT Crew cab 4X4 6.2L gas 9900 GVWR priced at 43,390 Interestingly the HD payload now comes with LT 'C' rated tires in this build. That was my point, they changed from 'E' to 'C'.
