RE: 4.10 rear in new Ford F350

. What you think you gain with the lower diff gears in negated by the steeper OD ratio. Think final gear ratio! Keep in mind that the transmission is worked harder with higher diff gears. You multiply the top gear ratio times the diff gear ratio, and the result is always more torque with the lower rear gears. Add to that, each gear change is less of a difference in road speed, keeping the engine at a better RPM. That basically applies in first gear to get a load moving. Out on highway one is in 5th and the other in 6th at the same speed. You are dismissing a taller 6th gear od ratio. I am not dismissing anything, the multiplier (rear gear ratio) is the same in every gear.

RE: Would appreciate the groups thoughts on tandem axle issue

I have been thru this exact thing. I played around with a useless dealer as well, then fixed it myself. In the long run, this was the best decision because I now have much stronger custom made axles and no worries about bending flimsy junk like the originals.

RE: 2017 Cherokee 274DBH question

A gas refrigerator has two vents, one will be thru the wall and the other thru the roof. The exception is when the refrigerator is in a slideout, then the second vent will also be thru the wall above the first. If you see no vent, then the refrigerator is located elsewhere and perhaps the model number is incorrect. Now if the trailer was equipped from new with an electric only refrigerator, then there will be no vent.

RE: 4.10 rear in new Ford F350

OK, its your secret about fuel. There is a large difference in RPM, and therefore required gear ratios between gas and diesel. Yes, I know that 4.10 is offered with some options, but I ain't looking it up.

RE: 4.10 rear in new Ford F350

Gas or diesel, single or dual? You do know that the top two gears are overdrive and many people are stuck in the distant past when discussing gear ratios?

RE: Terrible Trucks

I'm pretty sure that how anyone spends their money is no business of mine, nor is how I spend my money any of theirs. As long as people are responsible enough to keep from being a burden to the taxpayers, then your statement is good. If those that pee away so much that they fall back on assistance, then they are minding my business.

RE: Water Fill Hose size

Some are produced that accept 1-1/4" and 1-3/8" Example

RE: New trailer (almost)

It is easy to blame the first time purchaser for the overlooked issues. You went into this purchase thinking that the dealer would quickly do the right thing and now you experienced reality. Don't blame yourself on missing these things, you probably had faith in your fellow man. What to do? The dealer has you over the barrel and knows that you will never be a customer again, so he couldn't care less. There is little chance that the deal can be reversed, but just push the issue till he can't stand it. Contact the factory and tell them that the trailer is not fit for delivery.

RE: Refrigerator Outside Vents

I really don't understand why you don't read the installation manual and do what it says. Look for the one for your model number. For example: Page 9.

RE: Mountain Towing

A 1/2 ton is LESS truck no matter what all those numbers say. For a 5th wheel, I would want MORE truck.

RE: Refrigerator Outside Vents

What kind of slob did that work? My trailer had insulation blocking most of the air flow and there was no baffle at the top. It at least had the lower board installed correctly. This kind of work is par for the course. You still do not have the lower baffle installed correctly and there is no top baffle guiding warm air from the top edge of the frige cabinet to the top of the outside vent. See the installation manual and do it right. While it works better now, it may not keep after under extreme conditions. Fridges installed in slides and utilizing side vents need all the help they can get.

RE: Looking for quality

Just returned from the Hershey show. Acres and acres of junk on display. Attendance seemed down from past years. I do not buy in to the Northwood / ORV fanaticism. Dealers are few and far between here in the NE and I know a few folks who went out of their way to lay their hands on those based on RV forum hoohaw, they were ultimately sorry they did so in every case for what they spent. Same with Lance. Spending more does not always guarantee quality although not having a Lippert frame is highly desirable. While the trailers from Oregon have downgraded much of the electronics to the current junk, I do wish I would have bought one with a real frame. My flexible, cracking Lippert "frame" would be impossible to replace, but much of the other junk can be upgraded. How were you able to navigate the Hershey minefield of all those steps extending out into the aisles?

RE: Bugs...

You will find that often those "dead" bugs come back to life. They can metabolize most insecticides making them difficult to kill. Now why on earth would anyone release the stinkers back outside when dropping them in water with dish soap will insure they are dead?

RE: New trailer came off hitch!!

My guesses are that you didn't have the coupler down on the ball, or you have a 2" ball and a 2-5/16" coupler.

RE: Mice / holes in the frame

Sure, fill them. You can get landscape foam that is dark gray if you are concerned with appearance. Mixing steel wool with the foam will give the critters another level of work to get in, but you probably shouldn't have it contact wires. Stainless steel wool or bronze wool will not turn to rust if it is a wet area.

RE: Chevy, Ford... going into electric trucks.

I have Amish neighbors, they are doing just fine with their horses, plus they are without electricity or a Ford. I do hate the road apples. Just because you can do something, doesn't mean that you should. Generating electricity is a filthy business, nothing green about it. Don't start with solar and wind, start with the mining to produce the components. Mining cannot be totally eliminated. But it can be reduced by solar, wind and other alternative energy sources. Some California homes and new developments are still connected to the grid, but not a few are totally free of drawdown from the electric utilities and during some season, they actually net supplier to the grid. Do the math of how many coal burning plants will be mothballed once the state achieve their true electric energy independence. I was talking about the mining to produce the materials used in solar panels, wind turbines and the considerable power lines required. This is usually not considered by those with an agenda.

RE: Tomatoes

Back in the Reagan days, ketchup was classified as a serving of fruit to satisfy federal school lunch program requirements. Please site your source for that, I think you will find that nonsense was blown out of proportion by the media.

RE: Timken bearing sets

On the other hand, if they had said USA I would wonder how long they had been in the pipeline or sitting on a shelf. Hmmm. The longer, the better, steel doesn't age out and bearings produced years ago have a better chance of being correct.
