RE: Interesting Montana Concept - Huge Window on Front Cap

Yeah, don't think I'd like it.

RE: Banks Upgrade Question... Voids Ford Drive Train Warranty?

A full Banks kit installed on the old 460 V8 provided signicant benefits, but is not reported to do so much for later V10s, so a lot of money for little gain.

RE: Neighbors... introduce or hermit?

I'm civil if spoken to but I'm an introvert so rarely will open a conversation.

RE: Hurricane Joaquin - BIG CHANGE IN PLANS

I'd think you'll be okay if you take 81 vice 95. Forecasters are still conflicted if it will make landfall and where, and one track shows it moving eastward.

RE: trailer bearing, seal & spindle questions

If three hubs are measuring say, 120, and one is 170, then you might have an issue. A 100 degree difference is almost certainly catastrophic. The rust on the spindle just means there was no grease at that location and is no problem. But your spindle appears to have been heat stressed. I'd have an expert take a look at it before your next trip

RE: Boat part time RV part time

That was a dream of mine for a long time but it never happened. I think it's a great idea.

RE: North Carolina, VA storm alert

All it has to do is track a bit more westward than currently predicted and we will have a messy, wet weekend. I'm currently in the Tidewater area.

RE: Poorly designed ductwork - need opinions!

Good idea but no need to use round galvanized; flex pipe will do it, and while you're under there I recommend you wrap aluminum sticky tape around every joint you can reach.

You, sir, are a patient man.

RE: question about clearance on new 5er

I can't drop the TV tailgate, nor open the front compartment of the FW, when hooked up. Think thus is very common.

RE: How much damage have I caused?

I doubt you did much, if any, long term damage.

RE: Just Need to Whine a Little

No shutdown IMHO.

RE: Mold in wall board in Forst River Blue Ridge UPDATE

Because black mold can be dangerous, and because there's no evidence of water damage, I would speak directly with the factory and insist the mold was present during construction. If they don't step up, even though it's out of warranty, try using the Magnuson Moss Warranty Act on them. Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

RE: Roof feels week - and solar panel screws didn't grab well

Wood under the membrane is probably 3/8" and the eternabond is probably providing the most strength. I'd go to the next size up stainless screw and some caulk in the existing holes, and don't over-torque the screws.

RE: Reese Titan - MOR/ryde combination

Airbags for your TV rear axle won't reduce chucking. Chucking is the result of the interaction between the TV and the FW. If you haven't sealed the deal yet on the FW, you can possibly work a upgraded pinbox into the deal. I have no opinion on which pinbox is best, but my research shows the Moryde to be the simplest and most cost-effective solution.

RE: Greasing tow trailer axles

At four years I would pull the hub and inspect the bearings and races, and hand pack and reinstall them if they check out okay.

RE: New 5th wheel and towing issues

Tires on FW are probably 16" and max pressure should be 80 v. 50psi but I doubt low FW tire pressure is the problem. Must be something on the truck.

RE: Ant invasion

We got them a while ago but not as bad as yours sounds. Bought a couple of OTC bug bombs and they were all dead after three hours.

RE: Bringing kayak with you...

I had a 14' tandem yak and an F150 with a 5-1/2' bed. I bought a Darby Extend-a-Rack that can be used with a front receiver or on the regular rear receiver. It can be used horizontally or vertically on the rear.
