RE: New Wiper Blades

Why would anyone want to go with a smaller wiper blade and reduce their visibility just to save a few bucks? Seems foolish to me... On a 60" windshield measuring from top to bottom 4" is not going to affect an visibility..thanks for asking Because those large blades are near impossible to find in the local store. The largest ones that still provide a large viewing area are available just about everywhere!

RE: 6 Volt Interstate batteries

I have heard the quality of interstates has dripped off. Not the same quality it was a couple years ago! I have 2 Napa 12V deep cycles in my MH and have no complaints!

RE: Window Tint

FWIW. A good tint job will last the life of the truck. As far as cop magnets......not if you get them in a lighter shade of tint. On the windshield. There is a mark in the corner it’s know as ASI tint cannot extend beyond the line of that marking. I’ve had tinted windows on all my cars and only once got pulled over, for a missing front plate. Never said a word about my tinted windows.

RE: New truck - but its lifted and towing

3” isn’t that big of a lift on a 2500/3500 truck. I’m sure it has a size larger on tires also. The Cummins will have nonissue towing your trailer. I see no need to remove the lift unless that’s what you want. But it’s not a detriment to towing!

RE: Tow vehicle specs

...All Wranglers are 4 down towable, manual or auto... all current year Wranglers might very well be flat towable but in case the OP is considering buying a used Wrangler the advice is the same...check the owner's manual under Recreational Towing before purchase. Unless the OP finds the 1 of 1 Wrangler that is automatic with 2WD, they have always been 4 down towable.

RE: Window Tint

I had the windows tinted on my 02 Excursion. Never had a problem seeing even at night. The Excursion has front and rear heat and air to help cool all of its interior space. The rear windows on the X are factory tinted. Are your rear windows factory tinted on your SD? Also, when was the last time you had the AC Evan and recharged. It may just need that. I had to do mine when it was 7 years old. Sometimes they just get low, even with no signs of a leak. It's just how they are. I say to have it evac and recharged and see how it does. Then if you want you can have the windows tinted. I know I loved not having the sun beatin in through he side windows when driving.

RE: Flashing rope light

I'm sure you can find them on Amazon. I have the strip lights that stick under the awning track at the RV. I also have the same set under the RV. Gives it a nice soft glow. I can set them to flash, fade, scroll and just glow differ t colors ant any brightness I want.

RE: Tow vehicle specs

We tow a 2013 Ford Explorer. Ours is 4WD but 2WD is also 4 down towable. Very easy to tow and weighs around 4300lbs. Not sure on the 2020's, but I belive all of them up to 2019 with the V-6 are 4 down towable. As for the Jeeps. All Wranglers are 4 down towable, manual or auto. Certain Grand Cherokees are towable, but it needs the proper T-case with the N position. Same for the little Cherokee, it needs to have the active drive II which has the N position.

RE: Oil change question

Nope. Leave it as is. Give it a good drive before you put it away to burn off any moisture.

RE: 2002 Ford E350 V10 Transmission Fluid

A flush is OK as long as it used the transmission pump to move it through the trans. If the fluid isn’t burnt and is serviced regularly then a pan drip with filter is all that is necessary! And it’s nice to drop the pan to see how the inside of the trans is (mental chunks or clutch debris).

RE: Typical AGM warranty

If you can handle the price LiFePO4 such as Battle Born are the way to go. But they are $900 each!

RE: 2002 Ford E350 V10 Transmission Fluid

My 02 V-10 Excursion used Mercon V. Merc V replaced the previous fluid for it. the Torque converter is supposed to have a drain plug that is accessed from a hole in the bottom of the bell housing. I never found a drain plug in my TC. I changed my fluid every 25k miles. at 50k and 100k miles it got a new filter. the gasket is reusable. there is a drain plug in the pan. with a filter change only it should be around 7 qts of fluid! I would run noting other than Motorcraft Merc V.

Just bought and installed the TST-507 system on our Sonic for our trip out to Colorado. A test trip showed it would read three tires no problem without the repeater, but to get that right rear passenger side tire, I had to install the repeater. The monitor is rechargeable through USB, small, and bright. Really easy to read. Oh, it's also LOUD! As a test I let about 10 PSI out of a tire and started driving around the parking lot where I was doing brake testing/setup. I turned on the monitor and as soon as it synched up, it started flashing the low tire and beeping loudly. Stopped, aired the tire backup with my Co2 tank, and it read the new pressure and all was fine. This is going to take some of the stress off me while towing these long runs. Yes it’s a very good system. I’ve had it all this year. It has worked flawlessly. And yes that repeater is necessary. Even with the rear duals in the MH.

RE: Garrett turbo files for bankruptcy

Sounds like what Daimler did when they bought Chrysler!

RE: Dodge 1500b van

Well they asked the question in the tow vehicles forum. And they asked specifically about a 1500B van. To me that says standard pass or conv van. As grit dog said, “way to muck up a thread!”

RE: What axle do I have?

There should be a tag on the axle. Also, it should be stamped into the axle itself somewhere.

RE: Suspension hardware

I too replaced the bolts and shackles with bronze bushing and wetbolts along with the HD shackles. I also replaced the equalizer with the Dexter EZ flex and it was a night and day difference, you could no longer feel bridge expansion joints. the equalizers really do make a difference!
dodge guy 09/20/20 12:03pm Travel Trailers

You are correct. But in the end the lower gearing is always the better choice when towing. I'd be interested to know what needed editing? :h
dodge guy 09/19/20 06:58am Travel Trailers

All of this talk about mileage. A diesel will out pull your little 3.5, get better mileage and last twice as long. I will retain its value much better.And it will only cost you a measly $10,000.00 more. Those are small little details...........same with the cost of oil changes.....oh and don't put it in a F250 or you'll have the same payload as a gas F150 SHHH! Don't tell the 3/4 1ton diesel guys that! They don't want to be reminded of it!

RE: How much do you really need?

I have said this all along. I always recommend to add 1200-1500lbs to the dry weight. Our old TT had a 4100lb CCC! It wasn’t a Toy Hauler. Just an overly built TT. It scaled at 9300lbs loaded for a trip. It’s dry weight was 7100lbs. Yes I pack heavy. 2 adults and 2 kids. and a 100lb German Shepard at the time. I also packed heavy knowing I had more than enough CCC in the TT and my Excursion was more than capable.
