RE: Is extended dealership warranty worth it?

It's not 5 years, because, depending on the the Manuf, they offer 1-2 years. And the aftermarket warranties will do their best to deny whatever problem comes up.it can take up to 2 weeks to get authorization! If your going to buy a warranty buy one directly from the manuf. ForestRiver, Keystone etc. And yes, $2500 can fix quite a few things or pay for a couple really nice trips!

RE: Towing with a 2004 Explorer Sport Trac

As long as it is in good maintained shaper it will do fine with the Aliner. I had a 95 Explorer 4dr with the old 4.0L and towed an Award TT that weighed almost 5k lbs! the Explorer 4.0 with factory tow pkg has a 5k lb tow rating. and I think 7klbs with the V-8.

RE: Diesel Batteries---$150-$200 . . . X2---ouch!!

My dual batteries in the Ford with the PSD lasted eight years. The single battery in my VW with the TDI lasted over 10 years. Batteries are a small percentage of vehicle maintenance costs.Wow, that's some great longevity. Can't say I've ever had a vehicle battery last that long. I might add I always watch water levels and voltages closely. Before I moved to AZ I do remember batteries lasting much longer. Here in the desert SW, extremely low humidity, 7-8 months of 90+ temps, and 110-115 degree summer temps, all take a serious toll on batteries. From my experience batteries here last 3-4 years, 5-6 years if I'm real lucky. I would venture to say batteries are probably a higher percentage of maintenance costs here than in the PNW. The battery in my 95 Explorer went 10 years before it started cranking slow. FYI, batteries that are mounted in the trunk or passenger compartment tend to last longer than those under the hood!

RE: Looking at used Ford F-350 high miles

It is what it is. Having said that you can polish a turd all you want but at the end of the day your still left holding a turd. And a transmission rebuild to boot. That statement is as old as the people that buy GM trucks!!!

RE: Question about Replacement Tow Vehicle Tires

Being a tech and seeking GM all the different brands of tires on the cars that come through the shop, michelins are the worst for early cracking. The best so far are Generals and BFG's. if you want a good on road tire with a decent off road tread go with the BFG Rugged Trail T/A. Or the General AT2. I do go on the sand occasionally and I like the extra traction. I'm running he General Grabber HTS and they ride very nice and have lasted quite a while. My next set will probably be the General AT2's.

RE: Looking at a 1961 Boles Aero

I'm not a pessimist, I'm a realist. I tried to sell min and one guy looked at it, offered me $100 and never came to get it. No one wants them. Probably because yours sounds like it is heading back into mother earth! people want them if they are in decent restorable shape!

RE: A different video of a tire failure problem

A few things I noticed. Overloaded F150 No grease on the ball 6 lug axles very possibly "D" rated tires which are borderline on that size trailer. And way too much fun!

RE: Hand wash only, air dry...

I have run all my cars through a car wash with the antenna mast still on. All my Fords, and Chryslers. Never an issue. Unfortunately it takes one persons failure for everyone to learn. Now that we know a car wash will rip the antenna base out of an aluminum F150 those that have them know they need to be removed. gotta love your logic here. 1 Antenna ripped out of F-150= all F-150's will have the antenna ripped out. Warning warning: Suburban has door destroyed by carwash, hand wash only! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ynVm1P88lQ My point is that we don't know the situation that damaged the f-150. Could be aluminum isn't strong enough, could be issue with car wash equipment. https://s3-media1.fl.yelpcdn.com/bphoto/46_JtTOUw3LLdxtaffT9ww/ls.jpg height=300 Looks suspiciously like a steel bodied Ram to my eye. What I'm saying is. Now that we know it is a potential weak spot, anyone with an aluminum fender with an antenna mounted to it should remove it. Not because of the truck or car wash, but because it will remove a potential problem.

RE: Looking at used Ford F-350 high miles

For the 03-07 model diesel trucks still on the road today, I still see by large more 6.0 PSD Super Duty's still on the road than the other two diesel brands combined. And IMO the Super Duty is the best truck platform with the best transmission. Does that mean that Ford sold more 6.0 than GM and Ram combined? It just means that what you don't see has been junked. And what's left of the 6.OH's on the road have had a lot of $$$$$ put into them to keep them going!

RE: Four major cities outside U.S. ban diesel by 2025

This is why I bought my V-10 instead of a diesel!

RE: Here we go again!

In the end all vehicles are designed to cut back as the emissions equipment gets older. I know for a fact as the catalytic converter deteriorates the threshold for a check engine light gets a little more lenient! Just adding more fuel to the fire, with no emissions equipment to make problems!!!! ;)

RE: Fiver Pin Separated From Hitch on Interstate

before this thread even happened... I always wondered why there wasn't a secondary safety latch like the one being designed above. Not to steal your thunder, but I had the same idea in my head...just need a small spring on it. :WWhen I use my B&W hitch the arm doesn't always snap closed completely, sometimes it's an inch or so from the stop. The jaws are locked solidly but a latch wouldn't work in such a scenario, and a heavier spring might make it harder to keep the jaws open, and this could lead to someone locking the arm open. You simply cannot engineer something for every possible event. If the latch would make you feel better by all means gin one up, but mine works just fine without it. I've always wondered that too. And also why products like a bedsaver aren't required like safety chains on a ball hitch design.

RE: Are RVs delivered winterized in cold environments?

It only takes 15minutes to winterize and RV with $5 worth of antifreeze. I wouldn't pay that on a brand new RV. In fact I would call the dealer out on that! I'm paying $100k and you want to charge me $132 more for a $50 service! Then again it's only $132! Either way it wont freeze on your trip if it was done right!

RE: considering 3/4-1 ton conversion vans

I would never even look at a Sprinter, first off they are ugly, and very under powered! not to mention they are Mercedes, no thanks! Gotcha, just throwing out ideas. KJ No problem, I appreciate the input!

RE: Tire Pressure Actual vs Sticker

I would leave it. but whatever you do, use a 5 foot extension when filling the tires at those pressures!
