RE: Traveling michigan coast

I have to agree with smarty. The Lake Michigan shore and the UP are probably your best bets.

RE: Check your Tires! Often!

I Always try and do a walk around at every fuel stop and when setting up the trailer after driving. Found a slipped belt because I do that. Just a quick minute can save you the aggravation of changing a tire on the side of the highway and the possibility of excessive damage to the trailer.

RE: Steering Wheel cocked. I fixed it!!

^^^ It couldn't. About the thing I could see maybe happening is your turning radius might be a few inches bigger in one direction vs the other - and I'm not sure about that either. I think your fix would have been a fun project. Removing and reinstalling the wheel would have been faster, but not nearly as much fun! :B That's the F53 fix! On older chassis's you would remove the steering wheel and center it. On newer ones you pull the steering shaft off and recenter it! They do make an adjustable link but I have heard failure stories of them. I set the toe on mine and then centered the wheel when I was done. Drives great and the wheel is centered.

RE: Battery acid crud on top of battery

There are only about 3 or 4 battery manuf. each seller puts their name on the battery. Yes they are all junk, even the new AGM’s don’t last much more than 3-4 years. I bought one of the newer AGM’s for my Excursion 10 years ago. It was still in it and working perfect when I sold it in March!

RE: Plate fees are going up in illinois

Stopped by my local DMV in IL and inquired about the new plate fee's and car/truck plates are going to $101.00 to $151.00 and RV trailer fee's are going from $30.00 to $130.00 starts jan 1st 2020 and they said all other plate fees were going up as well just didn't have information yet. Atleast I get to pay $30.00 for the TT in Dec this year but I'm hit with $151.00 in Jan with my truck gotta love the tax the state of Illinois to death. That $151 plate fee is for cars and trucks under 8000 lbs. If your GVWR is over 8000 then you need a D plate that will be $250. I was told by a state trooper Illinois is going to start going after all the trucks that do not have the correct plates. If your GVWR is 8001 or more you need a D plate if your GVWR is 12001 or more you need a F plate. I was told fines will start at $1 per pound over. Just because the truck is rated for that does not mean it may ever weigh that much. That’s why you register it for the weight you are going to be at. It’s up to the driver to stay under the registered weight.

RE: Spring from chassis to slide out

That’s all it is. Just find one that isn’t so strong that it pulls on the wires very hard!

RE: Battery acid crud on top of battery

That type of buildup is from a leaking battery. There is a small crack around the battery post that is allowing the gasses to escape and the resulting crud buildup. Tell them the battery is leaking. They have a failure code for that and can replace a leaking battery even though the battery may test good. And tell them to replace both so the system functions properly.

RE: White smoke from exhaust

google, your issue That's what we call google diagnostics. This is a Diesel engine, if this isn't a coolant issue it sounds like an injector is hanging up.

RE: This is what happens when you don't pay attention

I don’t see anything other than a car in a ditch and something off in the grass. CAnt really tell anything.

RE: Weight Dist Hitch

I agree that the adapter should be OK. But for the size and weight of the trailer plus price of a 2 1/2” draw bar I would just get the new 2 1/2” draw bar.

RE: Ford F53 Suspension

My 12 class A had the front and rear Sumos on it when I bought it. With proper air pressure in the tires it rides very nice for a 30+ year old chassis. I only feel the harsh jolts from very bad highway expansion joints and repaired sections.

RE: knocking noise in exhaust

Cats make some weird noises when they come apart. I will also go with the catalytic converter. And fix ASAP. Otherwise it could break up even more and wedge itself in the exhaust and then you’ll have no power and running hot.

RE: My 350/3500 is just too big to fit between the lines!

Yep. The second one is "that guy"! And why I go out of my way to park in the middle of nowhere. Good job to the guy with the dump truck!

RE: Wisconsin Dells

Our latest campground we like is Stand Rock Campground. About 2 miles from the strip and located on the WI River. (Nice hike through the woods back to the rivers edge with a nice place to wade). Very quiet. I’m looking forward to the next time we go back!

RE: Hope you travel alone?!!!!

5th gens have a bigger back seat than 4th gen crew cabs, but not a mega. Still only available in HD trucks with the 4th gen sheet metal still. Ya I’m still getting familiar with the body style/cab configurations. I’ve been gone from mopar for 9 years. Either way it’s pathetic a minivan has more CCC!

RE: Laws/Regulations for RV Fresh & Waste Water Service

In a home the bathroom sink and toilet share same room, same cold water plumbing. One just has to remember to not wash hands in toilet or pee in sink. Good one. I wanted to say this. Well that’s why common sense is fo........... never mind!

RE: Mat rant

My rant is for the people that don’t use one. I would never buy your RV when it’s time for you to sell it because of all the mess you bring in with you! A mat would make it an easier sell becaus the inside wouldn’t look like a forest floor!!!

RE: Is there something wrong here?

This is the exact reason I own a slide. All the room when it goes out!! Sounds like a bit of lube is in order. Very easy to do!

RE: Hope you travel alone?!!!!

All options? Doubt this is for towing. Max load is probably a new BBQ from Lowes. Yes ordered it with everything available! Including 3.92 axle and the split tailgate along with the ram box. And I was wrong, it's not the quad cab but the mega cab. I'm sure this is just to drive to the golf course. 5.7hemi, 8hp70 and 3.92s? That truck is a rocket with a pickup bed! Never seen a newer mega cab 1500 though. You mean crew cab? Ya I’m not 100% sure, but it looked like a mega cab with all the room in the back and the larger C pillar. It also has E torque.
