RE: Friction hinge fix

I guess I must be the only one that likes my friction hinge, the one on my truck camper has worked flawlessly for years.

RE: Weights. Am I missing something?

We don't get the piece of the paper in the glove box in Canada. We do get the yellow cargo capacity sticker on the door pillar which is simply the GVW - the weight of the truck. Best check your jurisdiction, everyone gives advice based on where they live not where you live. Some places such as BC do go by GVW in the rare event you get checked, no idea on Ontario.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

For my small engines I use Stihl Motomox, it's mixed gas but won't hurt a non 2-stroke. It lasts two years in the tank. I just put enough in to get it to the carb and then run it out of fuel. Didn't see it mentioned but from tests I've seen K100 does a better job than Stabil.

RE: Get camera/wires out SuperDuty tailgate?(Camera Source=$496)

these cables are used for other things as well, not sure why Ford decided to use them for the 360 camera. I've been using this exact cable for a couple years now.

RE: Thinking a Battery Monitor.............

seems to be some confusion how the bluetooth is used. The shunt is still hard-wired to the display. The display then has the ability to connect to your phone. It doesn't mean you can't still use the display if you choose to walk over to it. I find the bt very useful as I can be sitting outside with my phone and see how much solar I'm harvesting. It also makes setup much easier using the app than trying to enter it in using the display.

RE: Get camera/wires out SuperDuty tailgate?(Camera Source=$496)

I purchased cheap cables on ebay, Fakra brown female to female. Can't notice any difference vs oem cable. I purchased the kit from Camera-Source, but cable was way too long. It also used to be cheaper... but not much.

RE: AUX camera input Superduty: always live, at any speed?

I haven't looked for mine but I believe it's tucked up by the spare, may be easier to drop the spare to find it.

RE: MaxxFan (Smoke with Remote Control) Best For Ventilation?

I also have that fan and quite like it. Some of the controls are a bit odd though but not a big deal. If it does have a draw when off then it must be small as I have a battery monitor and don't see any noticeable draw.

RE: AUX camera input Superduty: always live, at any speed?

I don't think that will do what you want. From what I remember it is disabled above 10k and I'm also pretty sure it only works in reverse.

RE: any "must have option"? Midwest 2020 custom F350 gasser

don't think I'd order the 11,400 GVW package, that's actually a downgrade from the standard 11,500. Only 100 lbs but why? I see you are located in Canada Ford.com (usa) when i use custom build... 11,400 GVRW for 4x4 8' bed crew cab 6.2 gasser 2019 - is the max, and is an option "up" FWIIW :-) J suit yourself but you are misinterpreting the site. You don't have to select anything and you get a 11,500 gvw... that's the standard, nothing to do with being Canadian. the 10K and 11,4K packages are paper downgrades useful for licensing purposes.

RE: First time Eternabond user observations

I like to put Dicor on the edge, it seems the adhesive on the edge attracts dust/dirt and looks bad if you don't.

RE: new ?’s: options on custom order 2020 Ford F-350 6.2L gas

I have the WeatherTech mats and they are ok but Husky mats are better.

RE: new ?’s: options on custom order 2020 Ford F-350 6.2L gas

When I bought my 2017 I went to a fully loaded platinum trim. It has every option. Features I like: -360 cameras, also bought a camera to add to the camper so I have the 360 cameras when camper is on -adaptive cruise, wouldn't have order this but it's one of my favourite features now -automatic dimming lights -automatic retracting running boards -Factory LED lights, IMO aftermarket don't look very good -powerscope mirrors -5th wheel kit, for me the plug is in the perfect spot to plug in. Also got a gooseneck kit that's ready to go if I need to help on the farm -upfitter switches Features I wouldn't want again: -massaging seats -adaptive steering, just doesn't seem to make much difference to me -sunroof, I have no use for but seems to be included in most packages -BLIS, disabled with the camper on which is most of the time for me I went with a DRW 350 but really wish I would have went with the 450 for the much tighter turning radius and larger wheels. I had 20" on my last truck so the 17" just don't look right to my eye.

RE: Ford SuperDuty more bumpy + jittery empty, than when loaded?

My family has had Ford's for years. We've had good luck with them but I've always thought they were a bit worse on washboard type of roads than the others when empty. The old twin I-beam were a real handful on washboards, at least now it's mostly just the back end moving around. I've driven gravel roads most of my life so I'm mostly used to it now.

RE: Non stop fan on AC

That drove me nuts on my non-ducted as well. I installed a new control unit so I could control it with the thermostat. Toughest part was running the thermostat wire to the unit as mine was not ran from the factory. The uTube vid below is essentially what I did except I used a standard battery powered house thermostat that I had already installed. Because I used a house thermostat I only have 1 fan speed though so I chose low. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BR8To1Yt2xQ&t=570s&fbclid=IwAR1bB_lReNtcD4zp0umOvr2maYu9GS4LWQW2CR6J-ZjXGdWAraZLv8RldJU

RE: Tech problem with MaxxFan Deluxe--need advice

Interesting, I've had no problems with mine. Something I'll have to look into, when it's cold in the winter I see voltage up to 16v with temp compensation from my charge controller, although unlikely to be using the fan then. I Did come across a video on the everlanders page about issues with condensation. He coated his with a conformal coating. I plan to do this soon. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lkIDSVldJis&t=1s

RE: Installing Rieco-Titan Swing Away on AF990?

Please tell me I'm not the only one that's forgotten to turn them out? more accurately I forgot to fold 1 of them out. Crumpled the fender on my brand new truck. I couldn't believe it though, just backed up again and the fender popped right out, a bit of baking powder to get rid of the paint transfer and can't even tell anything happened. May be one advantage of the Ford plastic add-on fenders.

RE: Which to comprimise on? Toilet or Heat?

I'll be interested to hear your feedback on how the heating system works in the winter. I like the idea but don't have any experience with it.
