RE: Max Tow F150s

It is interesting how soft we have gotten over the last 150 years. Just a hundred years ago my great grand parents drove Model Ts over dirt roads and their parents came across the USA in covered wagons. Now the ride of 1-ton truck on paved road is unexceptable. As a nation WE sure have gotten soft. ...and most 1/2 ton owners don't tow anything. When my son bought his first house, he found out that having a truck is very handy, after frequently asking, "dad, can I borrow your truck?". He lives down the street from Home Depot and does a lot of projects around the house. Not interested in towing. He ended up with a Tacoma which serves his purposes just fine.

RE: Max Tow F150s

I'd just look for tow mirrors and a high payload rating. I believe that the tow mirrors are no longer included in the Max Tow Package. They're not. They are a stand alone package that must be ordered separately. Yep! Another better idea from Ford? Kind of like the flip mirrors are an option on your ram. Fish is correct. When I was shopping for my Ram Cummins, not all on the lot had the flip out towing mirrors, something that was a deal breaker for me. I ended up with the power folding tow mirrors which are awesome. I'm sure Ford has the same thing

RE: How to tow a level trailer with a new truck.

I think the OP is looking for solutions other than buying a new truck

RE: RV Service Centers... and Caulking

If you paid by credit card, do a charge back. You were ripped off.

RE: Automatic Transmission Rebuilders

The rule of thumb for diesel people where I race is this: Want a bullet proof Mopar tranny; get a Goerend. Want a bullet proof Chevy tranny; get a Suncoast. Don't race Fords. :B (the last one I made up just to get Fish going. The other 2 are legit)I will not requment a Suncoast to anyone. Their torque convertor left me stranded in no where montana with only 1400 miles on it. It shelled out and took out the front pump. I almost missed my Grand Daughter wedding because of it.That was the second one my rebuilder had fail on him. The Goerend he put in never give me a problem with 66K miles on it when I traded up in trucks. On your 2018 Ram?

RE: Ford Aluminum Body

Now I'm confused, was it the Titan or the Tundra that had brake and rear differential issues? It was the Titan. The 1st generation Tundra did have small brakes and a small rear diff - but generally were trouble free. X2, I owned one of those too.

RE: Ford Aluminum Body

I have never seen a drivable truck after a major fire steel or aluminum so what difference does fire make? X2. FORD'S getting the same treatment the 2007 Tundra 5.7 got when it first burst on the scene with class leading 381 hp and 401 ft lbs of torque. The Tundra dominated every towing shootout by every major magazine. It destroyed the badly outdated and underpowered F150 so completely that Ford, grasping at straws, launched their "fully boxed frame" campaign. Remember how they showed their frame did not flex and the Tundra'so frame so badly it had to be a "toy truck"? Ford's getting a taste of their own medicine!Toyota had their growing pains as well, under sized brakes and rear differential if I remember correctly. True. Then they came out with the second generation Tundra which had the biggest brakes and diff in its class

RE: Can somebody recommend a really comfortable camp chair?

Lafuma chairs are the best. Lafuma makes a good chair. If you want to hit a home run on your first try, get a Lounge Lizard from Travel Chair. Not cheap, they'll set you back about a buck-fifty per. Yes, they look like the $49 and $79 chairs. Trust me, they're not the same. Ours are going on 14 years old. LOUNGE LIZARD RV CHAIR

RE: Well, here's one I've never seen before!

I guess the moral of the video is that the Dodge Ram's really can tow almost anything---a fifth wheel, a trailer and another pickup all at the same time. Sweet. But, then, those of us that already own a Ram already knew that. We don't need a video to show us what we know. You don't need to rub it in :)

RE: Hot Tires?

Yeah, probably overloaded. Often times you'll roll up on someone towing a boat on those spindly little 12" tires, and you can see they're clearly overtaxing the tires and axle, as the wheels are splayed out at a 15 degree angle to vertical. What size tires? What is the weight rating? What boat?Amen to that. I noticed our pontoon trailer tires wearing on the inside, then looked at the axle, which was bowed so badly it looked like it was smiling at me. Took it to a scale and the gross weight was 2950lbs on a 2500lb axle. Had it changed to a 3500lb axle and end of problem. This was a brand new boat & trailer with only 2 trips from Oh to Fl, and about 10 trips to the lake. Maybe 4000 miles(but probably less).Gary Fwiw, trailer axles are supposed to be "bowed" It produces camber

RE: Steering sometimes a bit light

Sounds like you need to transfer more weight to the front end of the TV. Measure front end height at the wheel well both hitched and unhitched. The difference should be minimal, like a half inch or less. X2

RE: They stole my 50amp extension cord!

Where can I get for a good price a 50amp extension cord for our P/T Just went up to Michigan to open up and notice that the power cord was missing,:M they had the nerved to even lock the compartment. It's the type the you have to give a twist to lock in place. Thank you all. Welcome to the club; son-in-law's 50a cord was stolen while he was plugged in charging the batteries in front of his house. Had to leave that day on a camping trip and had to find one at a local RV store on the road. No choice in shopping around; I think he paid over $200 for it.

RE: new inverter for Bounder 'UPDATE FAILURE'

Mr. Wizard, is that invertor's fan thermo controlled and fairly quiet? Or does the fan run all the time?

RE: Pizza stone for oven

Sorry to bring up an old topic, but I used the oven some on our last trip and it is really horrible. I have a round grill pan similar to the one above, would the coating be a problem placing it directly on the heat? Would likely work, but our unglazed round pizza stone works great. Sit right on top of the existing metal defuser, yes crackedright down the center first use, but pushed together and works great for defusing Heat. Funny you mention that. Our old pizza stone is in 2 pieces too. We just push the 2 back together. The dumb oven doesn't know the difference

RE: Pizza stone for oven

I put it on the rack that I'm cooking the pizza on. Putting the pizza on the stone. This is fine. If you're cooking a pizza. Otherwise I put it on the metal diffuser thingy you mentioned. Been doing that for 14 years
