RE: Has anyone found replacement tents for the Lance 1131?

Try a calling a sail maker and see if they will do a custom canvass for you.

RE: Storing generators when traveling?

Re that crushed fuel can. Had to be empty. A liquid in normal air pressure is not compressable even going from ""124*" to near freezing.

RE: mounting air fitting for air bags

I have both of mine on the bottom of the passenger side of the bed just behind the cab. I did it for two reasons. I don't ever want to be standing on the traffic side of the truck to add air. I don't trust other drivers. Secondly I routed the air lines inside the frame rails and away from the tires so that a blow out will not rip out the air lines. Yes that happened on my first set up.

RE: Lance 1010 cabover strut

My 2003 F350 crew cab and struts worked fine with my 2008 Lance 1050. The struts were too long with the new crew cab 2011 F350 dually so I moved the mounts on the camper back a few inches. That was in 2015. They are still there in 2019 with no adverse effects that I can see.

RE: sway bar upgrade on 2002 F-350 dually

I put Roadmaster anti sway bars front and rear of my 2003 F350. They made a world of difference and they were super easy to install.

RE: How to disable propane >> Yeah another fridge topic.

Isn't there an off button on the fridge? Push it and turn the whole unit off while going to fuel push it back to on after leaving the fuel pump. Seems basic and free to me.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

Even with the kit the pump is still going to die and leave you stranded. The only thing it does is limit the cost to what I shelled out

RE: Designing an Eletric lift basket for camper

What about a dual horizontal pivot set up like what bike racks use to swing out to the side to clear tailgates and SUV hatches?

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

Two of my friends had the Bosch CP4 high pressure fuel pump grenade in their 2012 F350s with the 6.7 liter Diesel. It took out the entire fuel system and injectors. Both trucks had over 130,000 miles on them. . . . It would be a terrible coincidence if those two friends got their diesel from the same source . . .and if they did not use a lubricity additive. Lubricity agents are supposed to be added to diesel before the pump. But that's not always reliable; ....according to Power Service, www.powerservice.com, an additive manufacturer that operates its own testing lab, “approximately 40% of the ‘ready for sale’ fuels obtained in North America during 2010 did not meet the 520 HFRR In other words, your diesel supplier may not be supplying good quality diesel. Informative article here: https://www.proboat.com/2018/04/diesel-fuel-additives-part-2-lubricity-facts-and-fictions/ I am the only one that has been adding a lubricity additive since the switch to ULSD. Let's just say that they are adding it now.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

Buzz, What pump did you have installed? Invoice isn’t clear that I can see other than a “CP” listed. I’ve read the CP-3 is an option, but haven’t found if it’s compatible with my 2013 LML Chevy. Latest version of the CP4. Just going to make sure that a lubricity agent gets added with every fill up. The truck gets less than 10,000 miles put on it every year so it's going to take a good long while until I worry about it again.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

If it's just a matter of lube, I'd have added some each tank before spending $2,800 on preventative replacement. What did you do with the old parts? Posted on eBay? I bought the truck used with 89k on it so I had no idea if the PO did anything. I have always added Stanadyne performance formula. I wasn't willing to get stuck with my horses out in the middle of BFE with a grenaded pump and engine. Old parts got trashed.

RE: The ticking time bomb under the hood

So guess what. The Durmax uses the same Bosch pump

The ticking time bomb under the hood

Two of my friends had the Bosch CP4 high pressure fuel pump grenade in their 2012 F350s with the 6.7 liter Diesel. It took out the entire fuel system and injectors. Both trucks had over 130,000 miles on them. One got Ford to pay for part of the repair the other didn't. One was out $7000 and the other $16,000. I had 118,000 miles on mine so I opted to not wait and had mine replaced for $2700 parts a labor plus tax. Apparently the Bosch pump needs more lubricity than US ULSD provides. Oh and the other diesel engine s use the same pump. Do a Google search, there are even class action lawsuits in the works. Anyways back on point. The repair only takes a day, one dealer local to me wanted to take 5 days at twice the labor charge while one 30 miles away did in in one day for half the price so shop around. Here is my parts invoice as a heads up https://tinyurl.com/y437wqd4 width=800

RE: Which 19.5" tire to choose

the axel on the SRW is the same as on the DRW you will be fine. I ran the 245/70R19.5s on my 03 F350. Tires I liked the Cooper Roadmaster RM253 in 245/70R19.5s load range G which matched the capacity of the Vision wheels and gave a better ride that the load range H Toyos that I had previously.

RE: Towing a horse trailer with TC

well one of the above posters referenced me. I have a superhitch, 48" supertruss, Husky weight distributing hitch with 1200 pound bars. If I was going to do it all over I would only make one change. Superhitch Magnum (not made when I got my setup). You are towing a trailer with live animals. Its a completely different consideration from those towing box trailers. I am not risking my horses lives to save a buck. The superhitch, 48" supertruss with a WD hithch is rated to safely deal with a 1200 pound tongue weight. nothing else comes close.

RE: Truck camper with trailer length

Cool. How is the maneuvering at the filling stations or campgrounds? I never have any problems but then again you should see how tight the places at the stables where we park the trailers are. Two feet wider than the trailer and you back in solo with no spotter most of the time. I've been doing that for over 20 years

RE: Truck camper with trailer length

23' truck 48" supertruss extension with WD hitch, 21' horse trailer: 46' combined length no problem, been doing it for years https://tinyurl.com/yyqqoe4q width=600

RE: Reliability of new 2015 6.7 powerstroke or Cummins Diesel

After reading Buzzcuts post that would be the last Ford I would buy $12 to $16 to replace a fuel pump. Anyway as far as reliabiliy this is #6 cummins for me right from my first 1990 to my 2018 not bragging but no engine or tranny issues ever. not the just the pump. you have to pull out and replace all the fuel lines, filters, injectors, fuel tank etc to clear all metal debris from the engine and fuel system. I am replacing the pump to avoid grenading the engine and incurring that cost

RE: Reliability of new 2015 6.7 powerstroke or Cummins Diesel

I have a 2011 F350 with the 6.7 under the hood. I bought it used with 89K on it. Its now at 125K It came with a Turbo Bed Plate oil leak. Had that fixed. Other known issue is the Bosch High Pressure fuel pump. Ford used and older model pump that is not the most durable. If it grenades you are looking at $12-16k in repairs as they have to tear the injectors and fuel system out. We are not waiting for that to happen. The Fuel Pump is $7-900 plus labor. I am getting it done this month. Other than that the engine is a beast. I love it
