RE: I-95 Death Row takes 3 more.

There is no such thing as an accident.Stupid assertion/comment.Most 'accidents' are the result of someone not paying attention, being drunk, speeding..etc. Not all, just most. We kill each other on the highways at a great rate. Put me in the computer-controlled cars welcome committee. 100% of my accidents in the last 20 years, of which I have had 9, maybe 10, were the fault of Odocoileus virginianus.......the bastards. No computer controlled car is going to avoid most of those, especially the ones that T bone you.

RE: Maximum length rig considerations

For National Parks 30' is pretty much the limit especially in the dry camping areas. A few have some larger sites with hookups that accept longer. Quite often it is the road accessibility as much as the site size that creates the length limit. Not true at all. Doesn't really mean much. Define 40'+. Is that the parking pad length? How much is plus worth? I go to lots of ACOE parks in the mid atlantic, that have sites our 40' 5r will fit in, but I can not get to them because of the narrow (usually one lane one way) roads lined with trees, or can not get backed into them for the same reasons. And thats not counting the 22' of truck pulling it.

RE: Steps vs side step bars

I have steps and they do decrease off-roading capability. Are side step bars better? Should I switch? So you're planning on doing some serious "off-roading" with a 2020 LTZ are ya? You have a bigger set than I do. Nice truck. Personally I am kind of fond of Nfab Nerfs with the 3 steps. Not mine, and not sure whose, but I would bet the farm it has never seen anything but asphalt. https://i.imgur.com/zXKMq72l.jpg

RE: F-150 HDPP?

Will a ford dealer do that with used trucks? "My dad is searching for a new to him F-150" Yea, I guess not unless he's a real nice guy LOL. You need to find a Ford VIN decoder that will list the options of that vehicle. I have a link for Ram, but not for Ford. What rhagfo said. I bet somebody on the F150 forum could help you find this information.The vin decoder won't tell you the options on the truck. Vin-Decoder You need the window sticker to find out the options, and I don't know anywhere you can get that off the internet. But I think (i'm not positive) all off the HDPP F150's are made at the Kansas City plant, that is in the Vin Decoder but it won't be definitive, as other F150's without the HDPP are made there as well. I believe if you take the VIN to a Ford dealer they can run it and print out the build sheet with all the RPO codes. At one time they used to put them on a decal on the door jamb, like GM still does but in the glovebox.

RE: Time for new tires?

Run em as long as the tread is good. That's what I would do also. I run tires until I feel them start getting wonky during a heavy rain or can tell they are giving up in the snow. Never cared about date codes. If one wants to obsess themselves with date codes and internet forum foolishness / drama regarding them, they can have at it, enjoy. Then they can run out and buy new. One of the fellows at the tire shop will be more than happy to have the old ones and run them for another mess of miles, after you pay them for disposal.

RE: F-150 HDPP?

Well, I was thinking there would be some way to tell without looking at all the stickers. There is. Just call a Ford dealer, tell them what you want, and they'll find it. If they don't find it, they can order it. You don't have to look at a single sticker.

RE: Alliance 5th Wheels

Call me a kool-aid drinker - I don't care - that's a term usually given to someone who is very happy with something that is given by someone who isn't very happy with what they have, so all they can do is tell others how crappy the thing they don't have is. Unfortunately you have to pay your dues to get the moniker lol. You have to go to the Goshen rally and spend a couple days with your entire family wearing matching GD T shirts and hats. Then you have to sit through listening to the factory big wigs feed a line of BS a few times, while you clap and cheer loudly. Finally each morning you have to get up early and walk out in the road in front of your rig, then let loose with the GD company song. This year its the Darrel Waltrip version of the Kenny Rogers classic " You picked a fine time to leave me loose wheel".

RE: Cable slide chatter and noise

You didn't say if it has always made this noise. If the noise started over time, then it is likely a wear item issue, or something needs lubricating. Being cable operated it would be a Schwintek system, that you may be able to google servicing of, to get some idea where to look/what to service. Jerry Schwintek is not a cable system, it has gear racks mounted to the end of the slide. Cable systems are made by BAL. Plenty of maintenance and install info at the BAL Norco website and Uboob. You need to find where the noise is coming from, may be as simple as greasing a bushing on one of the cable guide wheels.

RE: Locast being sued

No different than cable, sat companies having to pay ( and pass on to subscribers) a fee to have access to free OTA local channels whether they watch them or not. Seems to me the networks should pay a distribution fee to the cable, sat, internet based services to show their commercial laden shows. No different whatsoever, I would like to see them prevail, but I highly doubt they will no matter how much they pull in from Go Fund Me. Direct TV, Dish, Comcast, and how many others all have/had deeper pockets for funding litigation than Locast will ever have or hope to have. His statement is bogus, getting local broadcast channels over the internet is not a "right". DirecTV, Dish, Comcast, and the other cable folks are not suing Locast, and in fact support their right to exist and provide their service. It's the Big 4 networks that see the retransmission fee dollars not going in their pockets that are suing. As usual, follow the money. Or the lack of it in this case... Brush up your comprehension.

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

A few local boat Ramps are that steep. I gotta know where these are.... Maybe we can all get together and watch people back their TTs into the lake... This sounds like fun... I will bring a 100 QT cooler of beer to share with my RV net friends.:B This is a street where I grew up, it's a 28% grade. A 4WD truck can get hung up if you stop when its just wet if you have the wrong skins. The big thing was, and probably still is, to run up it when it had about 6" of snow on it. You needed to have a manly set of em as the running start required was brutal when you hit the bottom of the slope. I made it once with an International Scout. I made it halfway once in a 68 Bronco, the sideways slide back down was interesting. https://i.imgur.com/IYRXGG8l.jpg

RE: Would I ever be happy towing with a half ton truck

When it comes to speed, the 3.5L Ecoboost and 6.2L Ecotec provide more power than what the truck can handle. The opposite is true for the 3/4 ton gas engines. I am not sure about the new gas 7.3L, but so far it is looking to be the same way. We are also talking about a trailer the weighs just 8,500 lbs. Does one really need a 3/4 ton gasser that is slower, uses a lot more fuel, and is a lot harder to maneuver for just an 8,500 lb trailer. No doubt the 3/4 gaser would be more stable towing, but we are just talking about 8,500 lbs here. That 8,500 lbs may as well be 85,000 lbs. I think that is a bit overly dramatic. The highest tow spec ratings on half tons is over 12K. While pulling an 8500 pound trailer, your not exactly bumping up against the max listed capacity. I agree that more capacity is better than less, but at some point that excess capacity is just excessive. If you prefer to roll in a 3/4 ton, that is one thing (I probably would), but it is far from necessary. LOL, Ooooooops should of added "on an RV board!"

Got a Jeep mostly for farming. You're a farmer too? A pretty versatile fellow.
