RE: WD Hitch - What am I doing wrong?

How hard are you setting the WD bars? The Armada will need more than the F150. You should need to raise the front of the trailer with the truck attached to get proper weight distribution.

RE: Tip The Person Who Takes You To Your Campsite?

No tip. If I can make it to a place 2000 miles away, I can make it through a campground on my own!

RE: Failed to consider the size of the Portable Dump tank..

I would keep it. Make a bracket to hold it under the trailer. It has wheels, so pull it to the TV and drive to the dump station. Why do things have to be so complicated other than to just make it look like a hassle. I wish I had a 40 gallon tote instead of my little 10 gallon one.

RE: 2015 Silverado Navigation up, are you kidding???

Even the stand alone GPS systems work the same way. other than you can get lifetime updates, the system does the exact same things as the installed GPS. If your Manuf. installed GPS is running Garmin software you may be able to go right to Garmin and buy the update. I personally like the integrated GPS over the standalone because they are more user friendly. My 07 Chrysler T&C has the integrated GPS and I like it. I still haven't updated it yet, I may do it just to have updated maps, I certainly wouldn't do it every year though!

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

Dodge Guy, the officers were not suspended. They probably got a commendation for what they did. And it is a crime to possess funds derived through criminal activity. You guys can dislike it all you want, but it is the law, at least for now. Where was the criminal activity? You stated "it is a crime to possess funds derived through criminal activity" the only ones that committed this crime were the police! because they stole the money and were in possession of the money through criminal activity! you can twist the law all you want, but in this case the police were wrong and the courts agreed!

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

Ok. Now after reading what went on it seems to me a cop or 2 were looking for their big day on the side of the highway. They got it and now look like fools! This is clearly a guy on the road taking his cash with him which is not a crime! The only crime committed was by the police and government! Crimes against a citizen of the U.S. No less! I would like the to think the 2 officers are suspended! But I doubt it, probably out there still stealing for the government from law abiding citizens!

RE: Cleaning out a cast iron block

I'de pull the most accessible freeze plugs. You'de be surprised what can hide at the bottom of a block! When I had my Dodge conv. van with the 5.9 I had a freeze plug start to leak (rusting from the inside out). I pulled all the plugs and flushed the block from the front to back and back to front. Installed the new freeze plugs and fresh coolant. That alone dropped the coolant temp about 15 degrees. After that I installed a new radiator and fan clutch and it again dropped a bit more. The engine always ran about 210 when I got it. After all that even when towing it took a lot to get it to break 200 deg.

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

As I said there is an important piece of information missing in this story. And that is how did the first trooper know he had all that cash? That is what I haven't read about yet. And it doesn't matter either way. He did nothing wrong other than driving slowly (which probably just meant he was driving slower than the traffic around him), and that was probably the speed limit anyway, considering its normal to see upwards of 20mph over the posted limit! Like I said there is one important piece of information missing!

RE: Stopped in motor home for going too slow on I-80

If people were to read the actual case, this guy was stopped for driving too slow in the fast lane and causing a traffic backup behind him. That is against the law in every state. Correct! But where does seizing any money in the motorhome come into play? And now that I'm on that subject. How did anyone know what the driver had in his MH? And for that matter, why would the driver say anything? I think there is much more going on here! On that same note the police can pull over an armored truck and seize it's cash too!

RE: 2013 Ford F250, 6.7 Diesel, Suggestions to improve mileage.

My boss`s 2012 averages 14 on his 35 mile round trip which is mostly 45-50 mph. I`ve heard from many with the newer Ford diesels that the mileage stinks. that`s only slightly better than my 10 year older V-10 with 4.30`s that would get 12 on a similar commute!

RE: Horrible Gas mileage

7-8 mpg is the avg. 9-10 is on the highside borderlining on made up mileage claims! A diesel will get you the 9-10 no problem, But you have to pay for the diesel option, that alone knocks it out of any mileage/price justification! Stick with what you have. Nothing wrong with 8 mpg.

RE: Why do people have such large trailers?

Because when the weather goes bad, I don't want to be crammed into a 20 foot box with 5 people and a dog! That gets old after the first 15 min!!!!!

RE: OMG!...

Yes, it is a big problem! I always wondered why they never put a sensor on the air inlet to the engine that measures for Carbon Monoxide? You can say "well just turn it off" all you like, but the reality is its not that easy. And what about a keyfob that is in a purse and the start button gets pressed? See not that easy!

RE: Is my F150 powerful enough?

I'll jump into this laugh fest! At 8500lbs dry I wouldn't even try it with my X! That would put it over 10k ready to travel. Yes the EcoBoost is a good engine, but it and the rest of the truck (possibly even the passengers) won't live long! I certainly hope he comes back and chimes in! Maybe later when I get home so I can have a beer.
