RE: Best way to bring shine back to fiberglass body.

I have read about peaple using floor polish, but also about it flaking off so probably not a great idea, I would not think that as it is a indoor product that it has much in the way of UV protection. I personally also use Polly Products as made for fibre glass boats. Frank

And that is why all trailers over 4500kg has to have approved air brakes in Australia so when things go wrong those brakes pulls you op. Frank.

RE: I expect a 10 cent price increase in diesel

You poor guys in OZ we pay $1.44 per liter of diesel. If you’re president and your economy is so great what are you complaining about. Frank.

RE: Auto leveling airbag system??? How important is this?

Something has to carry the truck whether air or steel springs, I added air bags to a older truck 2006 and it did make it stiffer in the rear with only the minimum 10lb pressure in them. Frank

RE: jack pads

We use 3x8” pressure treated pine 12-14” long great for leveling also on sloping sites as we mainly camp of sites. Frank.

RE: sealed, vacuum bonded roof repair

You need to supply more info regard the rv what brand etc have never heard of a vacuum sealed roof, walls yes, I find it hard to believe any repair facility replaced rubber membrane whiteout repair to structure and roof plywood, maybe some pictures of what you are referring to. Where you are located may also be good. Frank

RE: How long is too long to be extended

In Oz many shortens the length of insert in tow bar as the longer the length from ball to center of rear axle the greater the lift of front of vehicle making steering light. We have many crashes where trailer sway overturned both Vehicle and trailer., not a good idea. I have seen mathematical formulas for how much weight is removed but don’t know where to find at the moment. Frank

RE: What is unusual/ wrong with these Pickup Trucks?

Ford stopped importing the F250 in 2006 it had the 7.3 international harvester engine an was build in Brazil I believe with the right hand stirring wheel, not sure about F150.. we had a F100 with the 4.1l inline 6 and later a 2006 F250 with the 7.3 still very popular hear in OZ. Since then had aF150 with the 5.4 gas, a F250 6.2 gas , and now a 2015 6,7 diesel. Frank.

RE: Australian making up for lack of 5th Wheelers in Australia

No more than 3.7m from center of axles to rear is the rule.

RE: Australian making up for lack of 5th Wheelers in Australia

It may have a door on other side as well, but it looks to be a bit to long on the rear over hang but hard to be sure. Frank.

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

When I say experience I mean double the cost $ 150000-175000. And yes the vehicles here tow better until they fall over. Frank

RE: Crash in Australia (tongue weight). Video.

Yes way to many accidents like that here in Oz, it is recommend to have about 10% on the ball here but some imported vans as low as 5%. Many vans op to 3.5t most vehicles vill allow weight distribution hitch but not all. Many people starting to go for the American pick ups but very expensive hear . Frank
