RE: Spark Plug Change in a Truck--How Hard Can it Be? Update

And no fancy plugs, just use what the manuf uses!

RE: do programmers really help

On a gasser not so much. But a good company that does custom tunes will do more than add power. They will change the shift programming in the trans to a more effective one for towing. I have a 5 Star tuner for my V-10 X and it made a huge difference in how well it tows. I got it mainly for the improved shift strategy, although the extra 20HP and 20+lbft of TQ is nice too. My tuner has 3 tunes, economy, towing and performance. Works great. What ever you do, get one with custom tunes, not just a blanket tune for several different vehicles.

RE: Spark Plug Change in a Truck--How Hard Can it Be? Update

Get ready to replace the Cat if you continue to drive it with the severe miss-fire! All standard plugs should be replaced areound 30-50k miles. platinums around 80k, yes I know they say 100k intervals, but I`ve seen electrodes worn away at 70k. Preventive maint.

RE: Reese Dual Cam Question

I am running a trunnion style. I have had this setup since 05. I originally had the 800lb bars for a year and a half. then I bought the current trailer and have had the 1200lb bars ever since. never had an issue. this year I may flip the cams over as they have worn pretty well. when you flip them, at least on the HP model you can use the bottom side as a new surface. this will give me another 10 years before I need to think about buying new cams.

RE: Reese Dual Cam Question

IMO (and not because I own one) I would go with the DC. Those other hitches you mentioned are just glorified WD hitches.

RE: Shock Absorber Addition to Travel Trailer

I don't have shocks either it is on my future list though! I do have a set of Dexter EZ flex shackles sitting in my work bench at home waiting for spring to arrive. I have read great things about them. There is a sticky at the top of the TT forum. Check it out.

RE: Reese Dual Cam Question

Yes it will work just fine. I had 800 lb trunnions bars with the "crooks" at the end. I now have 1200lb bars. I believe the DC is good all the way up to 16 or 1800lb bars. With the lighter tongue weight trailer the effectiveness isn't as much as the heavier trailers, but in turn there is less mass to control so in the end the effectiveness is the same.

RE: Downshifting fix for hills

Yep, gotta agree on 5 star tuning. But the OP was complaining of how his cruise worked, not the shifting. If he truly doesn't like how it shifts......and none of us do, then get a tuner from 5Star tuning. It will be a night and day difference. After the first trip with the tuner you will wonder why it wasn't like that from Ford!

RE: Downshifting fix for hills

This has been covered many times. Fords cruise control is very lazy at trying to maintain a set speed. My 02 X is the same way. I have to watch ahead for any type of incline in the road and help the cruise along when at the base of the hill. the set speed will drop sometimes several mph before the cruise tries to increase speed, by then it`s too late and the engine needs to downshift to regain that speed. it is frustrating, staying on top of it in hilly areas is the only way to go. a pain because you have to do what the cruise should be programmed to do. BTW, are you running with the Tow Haul engaged?

RE: Axle Ratio and tow rating

And to think there are people that will tell you to just put it in a lower gear! gear ratio has more to do with torque multiplication than final rpm!

RE: Opinions on the noise my 2006 Explorer 4.6 v8 3V is making

My buddy`s dad has an 07 F150 with the 5.4L. he had the chains, guides and phasers done under warranty at 50k miles. he now has 110k on it and it needs everything again! and this guy is an over maintainer, oil is changed religiously every 3k miles. these failures are a defect in design.

RE: Is this a dangerous situation?

Well, with a .01 thrust angle I'm going with an optical illusion due to the front track being wider than the rear track. GM trucks had the rear axle that was narrower than the front.

RE: Oh crap!

Was the cap on the end? I can just picture the gusher when the cap came off!!!! We only do stupid things once.

RE: Is this a dangerous situation?

Did anyone actually measure the rear suspension on the alignment rack? I`m guessing not, because the Thrust Angle would show which way it was off. it can be fixed by a shop that knows what they are doing.

RE: Jacksonville Sheriff's office seized property auction

Why is the "over ten years" old always brought up? Because the poster is uninformed -or- maybe an RV salesperson!..:R . Or maybe it was posted as tongue in cheek because it`s a Prevost! does anyone really think I was serious about the 10 year rule and a Prevost? at 10 years old that MH is still worth around $400k!

Bringing a generator with to a FHU campground?

I was thinking about this. I have a small 2200W generator that will do everything I need but run the A/C. I know some campgrounds lose power and was wondering if anyone carries it along as back up just in case? my brother was at a campground and the power was out for most of the day. a generator would be nice to keep you going. Anyone?

Sounds like the chains/phasers to me. Good luck.
