RE: Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

In the video they show a device that is bolted to the fifth wheel and plugs into a receptacle in the bed. My son has this setup on his 2022 Superduty , not sure if he's used it on his new fifth wheel, he will be here in Montana with us tomorrow , will have to see if he's used it . Report back if he tried it and if he like's it or not.

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Looks the same to me? Except for the camouflage. Is it supposed to be a new body style?I heard one change is they are going to start casting the door skins in 1/8" plate to keep up with other manufactures. :BAnd the window glass will be bullet resistant ;) That will be the "Chicago" Edition. How true... 6 already shot today at 4th July parade

Super Duty Backup Assist - Fifth Wheel

Found this interesting a Super Duty utilizing the Back Up assist feature on a fifth wheel. There's a couple in a camping group that use this feature and swear by it. Go to 7:35 for the action. Enjoy... Link

RE: 2023 Ford Super Duty

Here's some more intel... Link Dash basically is the same as my 14th gen 2021 F150 with the 12" display, two glove boxes, etc. Yes... Which is a good thing. Having said that there's some rumor Ford will install a bed step at the front of the bed just like GM. Sure hope this isn't true as that bed step is hideous looking and literally is too high to be useful.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Well now that the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) neutered the EPA yesterday, I can't help but wonder if the push for EV vehicles will be the focus or not.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Yeehaw, Texas! Short memories. Mismanage their own (independent!!:R) grid and now want to be turned loose on the rest of the country? Thanks but no thanks. Not really mismanaged, but rather we spent money to secure our electricity production during heat waves (which is more common here than week long freak cold snaps) and forced to shut down coal plants due to expensive EPA regulations in favor of cheaper wind electricity. In the past 10 years, there have been more than 11 power plants shut down in Texas due to ever increasing EPA regulations making them more expensive to operate. One of them, the J.T. Deely plant near San Antonio, had enough capacity to supply power to over a half a million homes, but would have cost $3 billion to bring it up to the recently changed EPA standards under the Obama Administration. These plant shut downs don't get reported in the news when talking about the one week when we were without power. So we had enough power for many years, but federal regulations played a huge role cutting that power and forcing us to rely on more wind and solar power which is highly susceptible to extreme cold weather conditions. We also placed our bets and money on hotter weather, like we normally get, effecting our grid, not colder weather. This is why we don't have that many brown outs during the summer when it gets to 105 yet other places and grids like in California that had brownouts during the summer years ago. Can you really call a grid mismanaged when it prepares for the weather it gets 99.9% of the time and not being prepared for a freak week long cold snap that hasn't happened in decades versus California not protecting itself from weather it gets most of the time and having brown outs during the summer? The South Texas Nuclear plant was shut down for preventative maintenance during the freeze. Once they got it back up and running the power supply issue was pretty much over.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Okay, I'm confused, is this about politics, or EV vs ICE up a hill? I mean I've seen thread drift, but this has gone waaaaaaaaaaaay beyond that. Ha! I'm guilty as charged, but I traced it back to Fish and w2r! They started it! LOL And then Fish boogied...chit stirrer!! LOL Don't blame me... This is Putin's thread drift!

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

^True statement and its nice to see an EV owner who accurately recognizes them for what they are. Which is what you said. Numbers don’t work for me and our uses. Not a truck with good towing/range capacity. So still need a truck. Cost of entry is prohibitive as an economical commuter. Performance, yup if you get the right one, checks that box. But at double the cost of our sports car which can’t keep the tires under it anyway, it’s so fast. Unlike the nut humpers who don’t even own one and treat them like the next coming of Jesus… And prior to the fuel price spike that “is never coming back down” (just like the last however many times…lol) the numbers were even more skewed. The prices will come down, but not with the current clown behind the wheel.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

A completely pointless video. No one with any towing knowledge expects current EVs to come even close to towing with an ICE engine. Video hints at being anti EV and leans toward being a GM promotional video. Pretty sure you can check the "Epic Fail" box for the GM EV truck they're threatening to release. My only request is GM makes a profit this time on their EV trucks.

RE: Old tow rig about ready for duty again!

Outstanding... Needs the factory pin stripe and the factory chrome door bumper guards at the two tone parting lines. https://i.imgur.com/EsFALBCl.jpg I'm on it! If you notice there's a little test piece of the pinstripe on the back corner. Already have the pinstripe kit and the mouldings ready to go. Wanted to get the bed on first to make sure they line up. Excellent... And I'm sure you and your son (two man job IMO) will install the pin stripping better than my 1987 Chevy truck that looked like a drunk installed it.

RE: Dino juice v Electrons....

Like I recently reported on the Ford Lightning EV truck towing a small trailer: Epic Fail Also to add injury to insult the Lightning already received a safety recall because Ford didn't calibrate the tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) correctly. At least it can be corrected via over the air (OTA) system. Quality Job 1 (what a shame)

RE: A Big Thank You

You asked for opinions and that's what you got as many are on the fence as well since sometimes it's not a binary decision. Enjoy the camping with your dogs as you deserve it. BTW... Based on your question and your experience with your previous trucks I think you knew the answer to your question.

RE: F150 Lightning Road Trip & Ike Gauntlet Pull

Here's a F150 Lightning that towed a ~1k pound pop up camper 18.5 miles. At the start of the trip the battery capacity was at 50% and after 18.5 miles traveled the battery capacity dropped to 38%. Summary: Towing a 1k pounds pop up camper which had very little air drag 18.5 miles and consumed 18% battery capacity. Conclusion: Epic Fail Link
