RE: Pulling a TT that is pulling a Boat Trailer

Here you go. Put a boat loader in your pickup and have fun. https://mrtrailer.com/safetyhitch.htm Bring a fat wallet.

RE: OREGON STATE PARKS RANT

It appears that you said the parks get "very little money from the general fund." In fact it gets NONE from the general fund. The General Fund isn't Federal grants.

RE: OREGON STATE PARKS RANT

That is interesting, here in Oregon we are still opening new parks both East and West side of the Cascades. OPRD has a good funding system that gets very little money from the general fund. Main sources are User Fees, RV registration Fees (60% goes to parks), and a share of Lottery dollars. No exactly. 2011-13: $181.5M 2013-15: $189.6M 2015-17 (budgeted): $201.9M 2017-19 request: $219.5M Money comes from: Oregon Lottery (47 percent), visitor fees / RV fees (47 percent), federal grants (6 percent) https://www.statesmanjournal.com/story/news/2017/03/17/crowds-rise-oregons-state-parks-seek-more-rangers-money-improvements/99317724/

RE: OREGON STATE PARKS RANT

Go north and stay in a Washington park. Problem solved. Washington State parks also close loops. the state park on my island will be closing 2 out of the 3 loops soon. Who cares? Then he can complain about that too.

RE: Ford Questions

It likely will look like this. https://www.google.com/url?sa=i&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=images&cd=&ved=2ahUKEwjH8o-ez7fkAhUlFjQIHQtvBc8QjRx6BAgBEAQ&url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.walmart.ca%2Fen%2Fip%2FDicor-Corp-V22501-TOL-Wheel-Simulator-Tool-Use-Install-Remove-Ford-Chevy-GMC-Workhorse-Freightliner-Oshkosh-Spartan-Wheel-Simulators%2FPRD244MTEGNN04P&psig=AOvVaw1_iin1Mkwfanr0JdF1kiPd&ust=1567701965149465 If you don't have one buy an 1 1/8 (?) socket and an extension will work. You don't need to tighten them very tight, just snug them down. And watch for tire shops that attack them with the impact wrench.

Hey, a D.R. Horton house is a step above sleeping under the overpass.

RE: Late check out

You had permission for a late check out, no longer your problem. Don't worry about it.

RE: Again, Admin Opening Tongass National Forest...

Tongass national forest is plagued each year by numerous wild fires, Better forest management will prevent this. The president's actions are a good for the forest. He knows much about forest management. Got a rake?

RE: Help the sway

His sway bar bushings will be poly as Ford switched to them in about 2012. There is also some reports coming out that the CHF is having some problems due to the Z-Brackets. The sway bar bracket bolts should be removed and given some Blue Locktite and torqued to 66 pounds. I found the best bang for the buck for me was the addition of the auxiliary sway bar. The addition of Sumos on all four corners of my F53 22,000 pound chassis I feel was not worth it, Maybe a 30% improvement on the in sway control. Get your rig axles weighed and adjust your tire pressure to the manufactures spec for your weight, NOT the maximum on the sidewall. Good place to start is the placard in your MH.

RE: shutting down generator with air conditioner running

Not a great idea. You'd be better off to leave everything running. Find a pump away from people who will have you arrested for it. Then every state is different. I'm in Oregon, no self-serve, engine off. But pulled in one time and for some reason I forgot to kill A/C and generator. Attendant asked it that was a generator running. That was allowed and pumped away.

RE: sumo springs

I put them on my 2016 F53 22.000 pound chassis. The last mod I did after Helwig Sway Bars and a trac bar. I MAY have gotten a 30% improvement. IMO it wasn't worth the cost. But YMMV and you might find it is the best thing you ever did.

RE: F53 Chassis Lean

My 3¢ inflation, inflation you know. Take everything out, empty tanks, etc. Weigh all corners and get a weight ticket showing so. Measure from ground to frame as near to the same location on each side. Have info available. Contact Ford Motorhome Service, there should be info in your manual, and see what they say and ask them to recommend a dealer near you. They will try to blame the manufacture. They never have made an imperfect vehicle according to them. If Ford looks at it they will want it to be empty so they can blame Jayco, if the weights show within a few hundred pounds as you say they will take in more seriously. Might get Jayco involved too. If Ford gives you the run-a-round, and they will, you might contact a spring shop or a medium/heavy duty truck repair shop and get their opinion. Failing that you might contact Jon at https://www.brazelsrv.com/ or https://www.hendersonslineup.com/ as they both will understand your issues. Be aware that they may very well try to through a blanket repair/replace five things rather than a one-at-a-time fix. That or load the hell out of the high side. LOL

RE: How much would you pay?

Come up with being able to use the toad as a helper engine for the hills and you might be on to something. I doubt if the auto industry is interested in spending the money for R & D for such a limited market.

RE: Change the date of Halloween...?

If they took it off the calendar I couldn’t be happier. I thought I was the only one that thought like this. :B

RE: Is it too much to ask...

Is Right-Guard still around? It wasn't to overpowering. Until you were in the bathroom with my brother and he used a quart of it each day.
