RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford 150 3.5 EcoBoost

Ultimately they become a niche truck limited to 7500# GVR TT's. They lack what it takes to be a true heavy duty truck. It wasn't intended to be a heavy duty truck. Not everyone needs a jackhammer to drive a thumb tack.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

If I have a problem, I can go to a local Honda dealer and get my Honda generator repairedIt may sit there for 2 weeks before they can get to it regardless of brand My point was call them and they will tell you if there is a local service center near you. We have 2 local small engine shops near by that service Champions. Do they have parts on hand? I do not know. One shop also sells and services Honda products. The other is just service.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

A friend of mine has a 2400 watt Champion with remote start. The generator has been really good and I would love the remote start over going out to pull start my Hondas. My biggest concern with the Champion (and many other brands) is parts and labor availability. if I have trouble with my Hondas (and I have had very little), I can always find a Honda dealer close by. To me, the dollars I could save are not worth one ruined trip. Just call 1 877-338-0999 for Champion parts and local service. They sent me a pull cord assembly free of charge.

*snip I'd rank the Grand Designs a bit ahead of the KZ, with Keystone #3. I have a '17 Durango 1500 D277RLT, and we like it. Some minor problems, but you'll see that with anything, no matter the price. The older KZs will likely have much better quality than current offerings. *snip LyleHi Lyle I noticed your D277RLT is the exact same floor plan as my 2013 Durango 2857 except we do not have the bedroom wardrobe. What minor issues have you experienced? I'm curious what I might need to plan for.

They have Tim Hortons in Mexico? Texas needs a Timmie's

We had a 2000 Sportsman for 11 years without a problem. Bought a 2011 Keystone and had problems. We've owned our 2013 Durango 1/2 ton for 8 years without a problem and happy with it. The only comments I can make on your specific floor plans is on the shower and bed. We love the large residential shower with built-in seat. That will be hard to give up. Our bed is in the nose cap, not on a slide. It's very difficult to walk around to make. Replacing the fitted sheet is a chore for us. I suggest going through the motions of making the bed before you buy.

RE: Best skylight shade

HERE are some ideas for the shower skylight. I removed the inner bubble and covered it with a brown towel. That works well but after about 5 years it looks like it needs replacing. I might try painting it next. I don't want to block out all the light, just reduce some heat

RE: My wife is gonna kill me, please help

I would be concerned of why the previous owner unplugged it. Why go to all that trouble to get behind it to unplug it unless there is a problem with it? Maybe it turns itself on? Keep an eye on it and have a fire extinguisher at the ready until it proves itself reliable and safe. Maybe remove it and run in your garage for a few days to flush out any problems

RE: Nice Story fellow RVer

I'll share my good deed story: About 10 years ago I was driving to Walmart to get a prescription filled. I round a corner to find a car stopped in the road. He was in a blind spot to where if I was going any faster I would have hit him. I stopped to ask if he needed any help. An elderly man sitting behind the wheel said he ran out of gas and was waiting for his daughter to come help. I told him he was in a bad spot so I'm going to back up about 50 yards and sit there with my flashers on so nobody will hit him, and I did. About 10 minutes later his DD and SIL show up with gas and got him going. He drives off and his DD waves me on. As I'm driving past her she stops me to thank me. She's holding out a $100 bill insisting I take it. I proceed to tell her I don't need it and to not ruin a good deed with money. She insisted and said "you don't need it but you will meet someone that does". I reluctantly accepted her gift. And sure enough, 10 minutes later, I'm standing in line at the pharmacy counter behind and elderly man of color of limited means. I couldn't help but overhear their conversation. He didn't have enough funds to cover all his prescriptions. They were trying to determine what he really needed at that time and what could wait until the 1st of the month. The DD was right, I would meet someone who really needed it. I butted in, apologized for interrupting and for getting into his business and offered to help. I told them the story of how I acquired this $100, and that the daughter of the old man in the street was actually his guardian angel. The three of us were pretty emotional at that point, especially me, so I placed the bill on the counter and said "this was meant for you" and walked out of the store.

RE: Alignment...I think!

When I had my FW tires replaced at Discount I caught the kid placing his floor jack over a foot into the axle. I called him on it and he said this is how they always do it. I said that's fine but on mine you will place the jack on the perch.

RE: Question about gray water...?

When we had a PUP I wouldn't let the bucket get more than half full because it was easier to deal with a lighter bucket. I would sling it into the trees or shrubs trying to disperse it the best I could. The next bucket went a different direction. We used disposable items as much as possible so not to wash dishes. Bacon grease went into a coffee can and into the trash. I've seen many dead trees from ppl dumping their grease at the trunk. Tent camping before that all washing took place at the hose bib where there was a gravel pit below it. Again, grease went into the trash. I don't know why these threads keep getting closed because this is a legitimate, important discussion.

RE: 2021 F-150 Brake Controller problems

All I can say is WOW My 7 pin connector came loose a few times back when I was towing a 6000lb TT with my 1997 F150. I had no idea the trailer brakes were not working until I tried to use them. That made for a few hair raising moments of pure terror. I would pull over, reseat the connector and be on my way. Fortunately, I haven't had any issues with my 2011 hauling the 9000lb FW. That would certainly be terrifying. Note to self: Avoid trading up to a 2021 F150 at all cost

RE: Need advice on 50 ft cable to portable solar panel

How about making a 20ft 10AWG extension cable. Place your panel where you want it. Add the extension if the existing 30ft doesn't reach the camper. Do you have a PWM or MPPT controller?

RE: "All-terrain" step stool??

We have been using the fixed step version for years. The only negative experience we have is if the feet sink into the mud the black rubber foot pads detach when you pull it out. It can be difficult pulling the pads out of the mud with pliers. If I'm going to place it in the mud I leave the legs folded up. Other than that it's a great step

RE: Dish Upgrade

I've had a Pathway X2 for 7+ years. It works great but it's big and sometimes awkward. In the time we've owned it I bet I could count on one hand how many other X2's we've seen. When it finally does quit working I'll be going to a smaller satellite. Thanks for the testimonial. Your last sentence spoke volumes to me. I can see it being awkward as well. Getting it in and out of the basement looks to be a chore. Maybe I need to rethink this. I got to the point to where I hate pulling out the MP1. The X2 may suffer the same

RE: Dish Upgrade

The MP1 is not SD only with Dish Network. That's probably true. My 322 receiver dictates I'm watching SD. The Pathway X2 is MUCH larger than the MP1 but that's also one of the reasons it's such a good choice. I didn't realize how big it is until I took a tape measure to my basement. I can get it in but it's going to eat up some storage real estate. We can live with that. We haven't used the guest house (tent, sleeping bag and air mattress) in some time so that can go to free up space. Regardless, unless someone can point me to a better opinion I'll pull the trigger on the X2. I'm looking for auto setup with 2 tv capability. Eastern arc is a bonus but not required, or should it be? Thanks
