RE: Adding second AC to GD 3170BH

I just added the second on our Open Range. Like yours, it said pre-wired. That meant we had 12 volt,110, and thermostat wires at the existing vent. Ducts ran all the way to that vent, but had foil tape over them. Also had thermostat wire at the bedroom light switch. All in all, not a bad job. I’m sure your GD experience will be similar.

RE: Great inexpensive mattress IMHO

My purchase of this mattress ended poorly, as I just donated it to the Salvation Army. Way too hard for me, particularly when ultra plush.”

RE: Air Shocks

I vote for air bags. Had Firestone’s on previous TV, and then went with Timbrens on this one. Hated them! Replaced with Air Lift, and couldn’t be happier!

RE: Which Shocks for 2017 F150 Ecoboost

Thanks for all the replies. Would airbags or shocks be a better investment? I don’t really have squat though with the equalizer hitch. Thinking shocks maybe the best way. What exactly is sway bar and how does that work? Info about sway bars

RE: Which Shocks for 2017 F150 Ecoboost

I have the Bilstein 5100s on all 4 corners on my ‘18. Also have air bags, sway bar, and LR E tires. Night & day difference.

RE: What's the longest/heaviest you would tow with a 1/2 ton?

Also, there are generally a lot more generous incentives on the F150. This. There’re generally NO incentives on the 250/2500 series trucks. However, it’s not at all unusual to buy a half ton $10k under sticker. Another consideration - most 3/4 tons are too tall (and likely too long) to fit into a standard residential garage. Forgot to mention in my earlier post that I’m right at 35’ with the Hensley.

RE: What's the longest/heaviest you would tow with a 1/2 ton?

I tow my Open Range (in my signature) with an ‘18 F150 (also in my signature). I’ve wanted more truck - or less trailer - a number of times. Even though the GVWR of of the trailer is 9,900 pounds and the truck is rated to tow 11,700, as others have said it really comes down to payload of the TV. With a Hensley hitch, load range E tires, a Helwig sway bar, air bags, and Bilstein 5100s all the way around, my experience is “acceptable.” Please note that means very little margin, and I’d consider myself much more experienced towing than average. https://www.rv.net/SharedContent/cfb/memberphotos/18889778/rig/RV%20Resized.jpg

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

The engine options are disappointing.

RE: Modern 1/2 ton tow vehicle question

I have an ‘18 F150 with max tow. The answer is no... you will be WAY over your RAWR.
