RE: Just curious?

There are two Beacons in our park and they stand out looking like something special. One I believe replaced a Bighorn 3575el like mine, and I have been wanting to talk to the owner about the Beacon. I will try to do that this upcoming week and report back. Now: I have a friend from BC Canada that has a VanLeigh lesser model and was leaving last spring, to take as he called it, the P-O-S back to the factory to have them fix the many problems. From Arizona the BC, that is a long trip home! I stopped talked to one of the Beacon owners, and I was correct that he had a Bighorn 3575el like ours last year. He is very happy with the Beacon and the customer support. They supplied wiring diagrams on his request. Chris

RE: F450 maneuverability question

RAM 3500 4x4 CC SB SRW 149.5" WB has a 43.9 turning diameter! A 350/3500 SRW will handle your 201 3160 just fine. Go drive all three. I think you will find the GM and RAM turn much tighter than the longer Fords. Chris

Think about this! A World vehicle!! No need for a left hand and right hand model with the driver in the middle!

Until GD finds a rear cap for their higher end line, they will remain of the sales lot in my book.

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

A Hall-Scott in-line six, overhead cam, 1000 cubic inches is a big block. Our Sea Scout ship, an ex USCG 38' picket boat originally had a 225 HP Hall-Scout I-6 Defender. It was replaced with a Chrysler Royal I-8, and while I was a member we installed a surplus 6-71 Graymarine(Detroit).

RE: New Ford 7.3 V8

^Yeah GM is still sucking wind in the gas HD truck engines, even with the new 6.6. Maybe they'll be under rated, hopefully. As to old engines, what about 351M Ford big blocks, 360 GM truck motors and old 360 Chrysler big blocks. LS7 is a really big small block too.....Ford had two 351 engines a Windsor and a Cleveland one a small block the other a big block. Wasn't the original GM big block a 348 porcupine? Deck height is the important with large displacement engines with longer strokes. The small block 400 GM is an example of what not to do, as the rod angle on the power stroke becomes an issue pushing the piston against the side wall of the cylinder. So for this new 7.3 it would be interesting to know the deck height compared to other engines. Generation 1: "W" Series The first ever production big block V8 Chevrolet engine was the "W" series, released in 1958 for passenger car and truck use. This engine was an overhead valve design, with offset valves and unique scalloped rocker covers, giving it a distinctive appearance. The "W" series was produced from 1958 to 1965, with three displacements offered: 348 cubic inches (5.7 L), available from 1958 to 1961 in cars and through 1964 in trucks; 409 cubic inches (6.7 L), available from 1961 to 1965; and 427 cubic inches (7.0 L), available only in 1963.

Guessing direct injection and direct fire. All great stuff. Nope! Not out of the box to start with. https://www.hotrod.com/articles/inside-look-fords-new-7-3l-pushrod-v8/

RE: Just curious?

Airstream would be the only high dollar RV that is giving you superior quality for the extra money. Lance and Arctic Fox are noted to having pretty good quality for a bit more on the price tag.

RE: Demco Autoslide or B&W Companion Slider

OP Here, One question - the side to side pivoting on the B&W. How much is there? I've seen the amount of play on the Demco but not on the B&W. More times than not it's the lateral play that I've needed because of how the truck and the 5er aren't on the same plane and you either have to shim the truck tires into the plane or trailer. Otherwise, it's difficult to get the pin in the receiver without a lot of binding. I've used my Reese for the last 10 years - and it worked. Ironically, I've only used my manual slide 2 or 3 times in the last 10 years. Probably because I was too lazy to get out of the truck, slide it back then get back in and park. I just maneuver into position by taking my time and wiggling into my spot. I was watching video on the demco - you can connect beyond the 10 degrees, but you'll need to remove the side adjustments first, then connect (without the autoslide option) and then reconnect the parts after you're connected and aligned. All of these hitches are far heavier than what I had in the past. I'm guessing a trip to harbor freight for a lift to pull/put the hitch in and out of the truck is in my future. good thing there's a veterans day sale on! Thanks again josh Never had a side to side tilt issue with the three different trailers I towed with my B&W manual slider. I believe that it most likely has enough to allow bed side contact if one had 6" or less clearance when level. Chris

RE: Demco Autoslide or B&W Companion Slider

I never thought my manual slide B&W was a pain. At check in I slide it back and at checkout after straighten out of the street I slide it forward. I ALWAYS slide it as the latch handle would not clear the front box in the travel position. The truck would not turn tight enough to hit going forward to create a problem. I really like the B&W jaws/lock setup. The earlier Demco/Hijacker auto slides had issues with the gears to create the slide movement. My BIL can not park his trailer on our spare lot the way we would like it, as he can not get aligned to reconnect. I moved a friends trailer in and out of the park for him for a few years, and towed it the ten miles each direction in the back position as his pin box would not clear my front bed box. Chris

RE: Elon tease -- Tesla pick will look like military vehicle

https://cdn.motor1.com/images/mgl/1GXZW/s1/tesla-truck-3d.jpg width=600 LOL Why no suicide doors like the Semi? The diesel boys will no longer get to say "the one with the most lug nuts wins". I do like the concept of super singles shown. I wonder if center position driving could catch on. Real deal scheduled to be seen on November 21st. https://finance.yahoo.com/news/tesla-unveil-electric-pickup-cybertruck-171941930.html With the driver in the middle, how do I order and get my Bacon McDouble and large Doctor Pepper, inner the gate code to get into storage lot, pay tolls, drive thru bank lane, throw out my empty been cans etc etc?

RE: 2012 6.7 Diesel

There are also many fanboys here who do not like to tell the truth because it makes their favorite brand look bad. They are usually easy to spot because they will focus only on the bad of other brands and refuse to believe there is anything bad with their favorite brand. They also usually exaggerate numbers so take what they say with a grain of salt just as you would with a fanboy of an opposing brand. Your post at first sounded Fishy to me. But then again I'm Cummins to believe you're on to something. :) LOL!!!! ^^^^ That is pretty funny!!!

RE: How does one charge a dual battery vehicle?

What is the proper method of charging the batteries in a vehicle with dual batteries? Specifically my 2015 Ford SuperDuty Diesel. My question ,why are you having to charge them ?? Reason I ask is its a 2015 ,and I suspect you are due for new batteries. Just went thru this. I jumped it twice , drove it ,and it started okay the next day, the day after no go. That was enough of that , new batteries . The biggest signs on the Ram trucks, and my son experienced it too, was crazy stuff happening electronically , radio not working etc. There is no slow cranking with these Rams, telling you the batteries are getting bad, its just one day it won't start. Just a click. As far as charging I would disconnect them ,and charge separately. My 2015 with 60K on the clock got batteries in Sept. If the voltage drops to much the "electronics" terminate the start sequence.

RE: FCA To Merge With PSA

I still think they should work on an universal swappable battery pack where one pulls into a station and a robot swaps in a recharged battery and you are on your way again in a couple minutes, along with a "refueling" charge on your credit card. The number of battery packs is base on size and weight of vehicle. The Radio Control hobby has airplanes, buggies, cars and trucks that have been doing it for years. I do not go to the field and fly a plane once and then have to bring it home and recharge it. I can fly as many flights as batteries I bring along.

RE: How does one charge a dual battery vehicle?

If you wish to be totally picky, connect the positive clamp on one battery and the negative clamp on the other battery. The second cable connected(the negative) should be connected to a bolt on the engine away from the battery(ies) that might be gassing, and cause a battery explosion. Also that is the first cable you disconnect. Chris
