RE: SO Confused about Ford Expedition Tow Capacity - HELP!!!

Based on the 2001 towing guide and the information you supplied that Expedition is rated at 6600 lbs max (3.31, 2wd, 5.4L). The rest of the information needed (max tongue weight) will be stamped in or labeled on the receiver itself (if equipped). You are going to be limited to around 6k depending on tongue weight. 2001 towing guide

RE: Good Sam Club card...how long?

Hi dezl_dr, On average, it takes approx. 3-4 weeks for membership cards to arrive via standard mail from the USPS. Note that the cards arrive in a plain white envelope that says “membership cards enclosed.” We’re looking into the delay in your membership cards as it has been past the 4 week time frame. We will get this resolved for you. In the meantime, know that you can print a temporary membership card online. And, Good Sam parks can look you up in the system to confirm that your membership is active. I will PM you your membership # just in case you didn’t receive the email with that information. Sincerely, Good Sam Club Team 3-4 weeks is shameful! The equipment and systems to make and track them on the spot is easily attainable. Come on guys! Join the 21st century My understanding is that they don't do it inhouse. They go through a printer for it. I imagine the cost of over 100 of those machines (for each store) along with the training, maintenance and upkeep outweighs what a printer (who already has the machine to do it) charges. The issue is not so much the machine, but how they mail them out. I would disagree, these type of cardmakers with magnetic encoder can be purchased for less than you think. Using it can as simple as inputting the information into a database and hitting print. Please tell us how much they are. <$1k per machine retail off the shelf which is a pittance to an outfit as big as GS/CW which could easily get a big discount on a 100+ machines buying direct from the maker. That would be offset by what they are paying in contract fees (possibly a savings) to the current provider. Heck they could suspend junk mail one day and pay for every machine at every location. The value in improved customer service would easily make this a worthwhile investment. We are 13+ years into the 21st century now. A high school kid with a smart phone could figure out how to run one without instructions in a few minutes. This is really not hard to do. Inputting the info and making the card should be a 5 minute process. Not a 3-4 week torture test for the recipient.

RE: What age to replace tires?

The NHTSA says that you should inspect more frequently after 5 years due to ozone degradation which accelerates aging. That suggests that tire life deteriorates quickly after 5 years. I have owned ST tires 6+ years before they failed. I have never owned a motorized vehicle that the tires were not worn out on in 5 or less years. Maxxis warrants their ST tires for 5 years. I have heard that some ST tire makers suggest replacing after 3 years but I have not verified that and I would not own tires from a maker who thought so little of their own product.

RE: scheduled maintenance(axles)

I have greased my bearings twice in 8 years and they are cool to the touch every time I take it out. While I do not recommend my method, my point is that bearing maintenance annually is like changing your oil every 3k. If you run through salted roads and snow all the time or death valley all summer (extreme service) it might make sense. If you suspect problems it might make sense. If you run in the sunshine on decent roads (like me) it doesn't. Annual tear down and greasing is old thinking considering the improved synthetic grease available and a more realistic interval is bi-annually or longer. Adjust the brakes annually. Just one man's opinion.

RE: SO Confused about Ford Expedition Tow Capacity - HELP!!!

It will depend on how the Expedition is optioned. We need more info. It would be extremely helpful if we knew the curb weight (to determine payload), if the vehicle is equipped with the HD towing pkg, and what the receiver (if equipped) shows is the max tongue weight with WD.

RE: Maxxis Tires c or d

Go higher! Having some reserve on ST tires is preferred!

RE: RV Park Review deferred

I would try one more time to reduce that part to it's base issues and see if they will accept it. While the site is a useful tool I do not take every review posted there as reliable. I have certainly seen reviews I felt were frivolous that were allowed to be posted.

RE: And I thought this would be easy!

As you have discovered it's all about payload.

Based on the number of posts about this you will be quite frustrated before you get it. Why CW can't produce them on the spot is what I would like to know

RE: Scam drawing allowed in Camping world stores-Marcus??

I've seen this kind of outfit lots of times in CW's lobby- they always have a big ol' sign telling who they are/what they're selling. I've never "entered" any of their drawings since it seems obvious to me that what they're really after is my phone number etc., most likely because they want to sell me something. Guess I don't see where the "scam" part comes in-? X2, not to hard to figure out. It's marketing not a scam. Someone may actually do that sort of camping. In fact I know some who do.
