RE: Now I've seen it all...

If ya can't back it, you shouldn't be towing it!!!

RE: Rare find. Used HD F150.

I ran the VIN... It does, in fact, have the EB. It was registered to Brantal Contracting LTD and was serviced at Orchard Ford Sales (wherever that is...). 7-lug wheels make it a HD payload package for sure. Also worth noting is that the original owner purchased a 48 month/100,000 mile Ford Extended Service Plan for it, and that should be transferrable to the next owner for a nominal fee. That's the NEW-CAR ESP which is slightly better than the USED car ESP they sell... (I wouldn't expect the Honda dealership to tell youthis though...) But something is fishy... It had service work done at 27,120 and 37,123 miles... The listing shows the mileage as 23,xxx... Could be a type-o in the service history, but two of 'em? Not so sure... I've seen mileage typed in wrong at the dealer. It is very easy to punch in the 3 since it is right next to the 2. I wouldn't give it anymore thought.

RE: First time towing with the new van, not fun!

I`de be careful on going with a higher rated hitch. too much and it may make it worse. you want the spring bars matched very closely to the loaded tongue weight. hitting a dip in the road with a heavier rated hitch could actually take weight off the rear axle. match the tongue weight to the WD hitch rating.

RE: One camper up...blown up

When I look closer at the photo it appears the class A did a fine job of parking and the truck camper took up 4 spaces. If he had been a better at parking perhaps he would have been a little safer with his propane. When people park like this they are saying, the hell with the rest of the customers. Pogoil. The explosion occurred at 5am, I can't see there being a shortage of parking spaces 2 hours before the store even opens. I also note the Class A left 2 spaces between it and the shopping buggy corral. Even if the TC only parked in a single slot I'd be surprised if anyone would try to get in the remaining space. And thank you! It`s nice to see that some of us here think the same way.

Glad I filled the X last weekend!

RE: One camper up...blown up

Are you guys all really serious about the parking???? I have often parked that way--when out in the outreaches of a parking lot where there is room? When pulling the trailer I sometimes take 20 spaces. I don't think that gives RV's a bad name at all! And the two rigs--maybe they were friends travelling together. Who knows? Thank you!

RE: LED awning lights how would you......

Ok, on a few things. Yes they are RGB. They are the weatherproof ones. The one strip I used has 3M adhesive on it. I installed them yesterday. I scuffed the bottom of the awning/gutter track and used some 3M adhesion promoter to keep the strip on the channel. I did end up drilling a hole right below the gutter that goes right in the bedroom. It is behind the awning when rolled up so even sealed up it should never see moisture. I then ran the 12V from the bedroom light switch to power the LED's. I put the remote "eye" through the hole to the outside so I can use the remote outside the trailer I used some Dicor to fill and seal the hole and left a "drip loop" for any moisture to drip off of. I also left the LED connector outside so the strip is easily replaceable if needed, I put dialectic grease in the connector to keep it from corroding. It turned out very nice. I'll get some pics up later. Can you post the source you got this from, or the brand? Having 3M products vs cheap $hit makes a big difference. I really want to get just the soft white, because I think it is easy on the eyes, how do you like your color choices? Thank You, Joe Hello. I got my set off of Amazon. LED Wholesalers. You need to make sure you get the IP65 strip. This will be the strip with the LED's embedded in silicone. The IP66 will just be in a rubber sleeve and is not really meant for outdoor use. If you look at the pictures of the LED strips you will see the suttle differences that make a big difference. Yes I do like the light colors. After I bought these I seen they have RGBW sets. Those actually have white LED's. Mine uses a setting of colors to come up with white. If you look closely it looks like a very light colored black light, but still gives off a good white color. I'll get some pics when I'm out this weekend.

RE: Rare find. Used HD F150.

I think the body line kicks up a 1/16 of an inch at the rear of the cab also and the turn signals flash 200ths of a second faster ! :S :R

RE: One camper up...blown up

LOL. I'de like to see any one of us try and fit an 8'wide RV exactly in between the lines and expect the next RV'er to do the same right next to you! No one would ever get out of their RV because the door would never open. Has no one ever parked parallel in front to back spaces? I do it all the time way out in the back of the lot. I've never seen a 55' long parking spot at a Walmart or any type of store for that matter!

RE: One camper up...blown up

Looks like to me the guy also took up 4 parking spaces. Those are the ones that do not think. So he probably created his own problem. If you look closely the class A was over the lines of 2 of the spots. There was a shopping cart rack next to the other spaces. I doubt very highly anyone would've tried to squeeze into those spots had the guy in the truck camper try to park in between the lines! Geez! The guys camper blows up, he makes it out alive and all some people can do is rip on his parking job!

RE: How do you feel about people walking through your campsite?

I don`t mind walking through other peoples campsites.....they don`t own the site and should be happy I`m in their presence!

RE: Did some damage to the TT

RE: First time towing with the new van, not fun!

Well that is part of the problem! The extended length van will really get pushed around with a bad setup hitch. With that long of a lever out past the rear axle every little bump, will really push you around. On EXT length Fords the hitch needs to be setup 100%!

RE: First time towing with the new van, not fun!

Is this an extended length van?

RE: Used RV under $20,000

Everybody has their own idea on what is a good RV or not for $20k. I can tell you that there are plenty of fine RVs out there for $20k. Just shop around and find the deal you'd like. But be sure it has good tires since that can set you back another $4k-6k. Maybe more like $3k if it has 19.5`s. either way it is not cheap! If you shop smart you can find a very nice class A for $20k. and an even better deal with no slide, since no slide models are not as wanted as slide models. Good luck!

RE: GM predicts what driving will be like in 1976

As far as self driving goes, we are more than half way there. We have adaptive cruise control that senses vehicle distance in front of you, lane departure warning and accident mitigation systems in place in some cars and cars that park themselves! So as far as I'm concerned self driving is one more step away. I give it less than 10 years before we see a fully functioning self driving car available to the public!

RE: Did some damage to the TT

Welcome to the club! I did a similar thing in my driveway. I was moving the trailer over getting ready to leave early the next morning and as I was backing up "BUMP". Someone must have moved to house 6 inches forward. I bent that same channel, but into the trailer, and that in turn wrinkled the aluminum siding on the side of the trailer. I was able to get behind the siding and work it back out. It now looks like someone just leaned against it. Oh well! Good luck!

RE: I am at lost. Another bad luck with my TV

Over all the 5.4 is a very good design and is a very dependable power plant. Fortunately anybody can Google. The the earlier 5.4L 3V Triton appears to be the most problematic V8 engine in modern history. Vegas rust, Pintos explode on impact, and 5.4L 3v launch plugs. I also found an article on how to put a 5.3L Chevy in an F-150 of that era, launched one too many plugs? Actually the early 4.6, 5.4 and V10 up to around 01 had the spark plug spitting issue, they fixed that in 02. Then they came out with the 3 valve head, and had problems getting plugs out in one piece! Then they fixed that issue with a different designed plug, I think around 09, not sure on the exact year.

RE: LED awning lights how would you......

Dodge Guy, could you cut your strip in half and use a splitter maybe? Soomeething like this I was tihnking. Run your controller output up the middle or wherever it it to the bottom of awning tube. Cut the light strip inn half and run it both ways. Yes, I thought about that, but I didn't want to create a corrosion point for any connections (although I guess I created a possible leak point in the side of the trailer! LOL). I thought about an extension wire, but I didn't want to have to plug it in all the time.
