RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

I have not read all 5 pages so I'm not sure if this has been mentioned. When I bought my first trailer they said to disconnect the swaybar before backing especially if jack knifing. Could this be the reason? Backing up with friction sway bars tightened down can damage a hitch. I ruined one doing that. Had to replace the hitch. FWIW

RE: Tom Sawyer Park West Memphis, Arkansas

Is that the COE park? Seems like it was farther north tho. I think this is a private park off of I40 on the Mississippi River

Squeaky Coleman Mach AC

Our 2016 Jayco has a 15K Coleman Mach ac unit that started to whistle/squeak on our last outing. It was intermittent but annoying. I contacted a Mobile RV tech that was not able to meet up with us, but he told me that the blower motor bushings are the weak link on the Coleman Mach units. He suggested that I lube the front bushing and that might help for a while. Well, after many tries and a 90 degree bent straw I was able to shoot some WD40 onto the bushing. It did quiet it down and it ran ok for the rest of the trip. I checked on line and the replacement motors are over $100.00. Anyone have a similar experience? and what was your solution...

RE: Supplemental AC

We have a 2016 JayFlight 27BHS. Anytime the temps get much over 90 degrees, parked in the sun, it does not cool down like it should. It has the 15 k AC unit, tinted windows, blocked off skylight, etc, etc and is still hot inside. Since I already own a 6k window unit I fashioned a removable bracket and I put the unit in the side front bedroom window. Seal around the sides of the unit with foam board and the place is like an ice chest now. This has solved the problem of parking in direct sunlight as well as small grand kids that like to stand on the steps with the door open. And from the outside it looks o.k.,, BTW, I power the unit with an extension cord to the electrical pedestal. Is it a perfect arrangement ? No, but it works and cost me $150.00 out of pocket... Hope this helps

RE: Hemi Camshaft Failure Mystery Explained

Lots of You Tube videos on this.. All the previous You Tubes that I have watched pointed to roller lifter failures. Seems like this guy may have found an underlying issue. I know this has been a problem on the 5.7 but not sure about the 6.4

RE: Tesla Cybertruck to be produced in Austin Texas.

The citizens of Texas will quickly grow tired of Elon and his antics, and in particular his defiance of laws, rules, regulations etc. Texas doesn't have the crazy laws that California has and Texas is very pro business and doesn't treat their business' like the enemy. The Houston news media had a report last week that a Fort Bend judge and others are actively pursing Elon to move his headquarters to the Sugar Land area. I live in SW Houston and have been here since 1970. Any business that relocates anywhere near Houston is nuts !!! Flooding is a persistent problem here and it is an area wide problem not just localized. Central Texas would be a much wiser choice.....

RE: 1974 Chevy Truck Comparison to Ford

That twin I-beam Ford probably went in the hitch on the way home. They were the worst handling truck ever made. "DEPENDS" My Dad had a 67 F100 he could not get a set of front tires to last 20k. Tried wider tires and also had the steering box replaced under warranty and Herb's Chevron in Sedro Woolley, WA worked hard to get it better by heating/bending but NO luck. I had a 69 F100 Ranger with WIDE BFG's and Crager's. That thing tracked well and tires wore evenly. By design the twin I Beam was not a good handling suspension, but the farmers loved them since they were pretty strong. Crazy thing is todays 2020 Ford Super Duty 2WD trucks still offer the twin I Beam although it has been improved some. I have had three Fords with twin I-Beam, a '66 F100, a '94 F150 and my present 2016 F250. They are very stout front ends . I never had any alignment or wandering problems with any of them. But, the secret to preventing premature tire wear is frequent rotations. I wouldn't hesitate to buy another truck with a Twin I-Beam front end.

RE: 2019 Ram 6.4 drivers

"What's the official reason for the cam failures?" Failure to use AMZ/OIL. :B On my 6.4L the little "axles" in several of the roller lifters failed. It was a common failure mode and was fixed in 2016 engines. Thankfully my repair was covered by warranty otherwise it would have been big bucks. It also took a month to get all the parts together (lifters were on back order and came from all over the country). Lots of info on You Tube about the cam failures... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=inPUz3pCHa0
