RE: Which Shocks for 2017 F150 Ecoboost

At pertnear 60,000 miles we changed to a set of 4600's on our 13. Sure has made a big difference when the 5'er is attached. Also added a set of Sumosprings. Milo

RE: Winterizing Travel Trailer

Milo, why do you think that the pump isn't getting winterized by sucking the antifreeze out of the jug? Super Dave Cuz where the pump is, in the lower half of a little cabinet in the back corner of the 5'er under the electrical junction box which is in the upper half of the cabinet. There is no room to add a hose so the pump can suck antifreeze out of a jug. I don't trust just running the pump dry that all the water is out of it. https://i.imgur.com/JL70QKAl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/EwAnMmJl.jpg Impossible to add a winterization kit to this mess. Would have to take apart the cabinet just to get to the pump. 2nd pic, if you look really hard you can see the pump in the back left side of the picture. So I have to put some antifreeze in the tank so the pump can suck some thru it. Milo

RE: Winterizing Travel Trailer

Sorry folks..but the only way to make sure the pump in our 5'er is winterized is to put some antifreeze into the FW tank and suck it thru the pump. Pump has no winterizing kit attached to it and is not accessible to put one on it. So I run it for 10 or 15 seconds to make sure all water is out of it and then add just enough antifreeze to the tank so the pump will pick it up, then drain the remaining out. Also there's no gravity hole to fill FW tank so I have to pump it in with another pump. We have a lever to switch from tank fill or city water usage. Been doing this now for the 7 years we've had it. Come spring I sanitize the tank & system good with bleach and have had no antifreeze foam or after taste. Milo

RE: Half ton towing

jeeperman your 150 has 52 pounds less payload capacity than ours. We tow a 29' 5'er and put pertnear 15,000 miles on that puppy in the past 7 years with the majority of miles in the southern Rookies of southwestern Colorado. Only suspension addition has been a set of SumoSprings (at 56,000 miles). Truck just turned 58,000 miles and got a set of Bilstein's to replace the crappy OEM's. Oh... the main different is ...you got a 5.0 V8 & we got that little 3.5 v6 (ecobeast). So! Milo

RE: Possible Addition of Second Battery

Thanks guys. I'm still in the beginning stages of what I wanta do. Battery still seems to be doing its job. I'm just thinking bout the future. One of the first things I did when we bought the 5'er was convert all the inside bulbs to LED's. The panel runs up in the mid 14's for several hours, then tapers back to the mid 13's as it got the battery back to 100% or close to it. Was curious bout what we have now, if it would charge an added battery. Have thought bout 2-6 volts. Thanks for all your inputs. Milo

Possible Addition of Second Battery

Howdy ... I need you solar guys help please with a couple of questions. My current battery is a 5 year old Group 27 Duracell Ultra Marine/RV Deep cycle that is starting to run outa oomph. We use a portable 130W Poli-si 7.35A panel and a Morningstar SunSaver-10L controller to charge it with when boondocking. For DW & my style of dry camping (3-4 nights at a time), no inverter, very little water pump usage and limited lights on at night. it works extremely well keeping the battery charged as the battery never gets below 12.35 (volt minder) at night and the next day the panel has it recharged. If we have sun. I'm thinking when time comes to replace the battery I would possibly add a second 12v so we could use more & not worry bout running to much out of the battery. My question is... If I add a second battery, is my solar panel & controller big enough to charge 2 group 27 12V deep cycle batteries? If not, what size panel & controller would I need? Controller & Panel we have now. https://i.imgur.com/4BLuDjKl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/34Pyq3Ll.jpg Thanks Milo

RE: Printing?

Well Garry, that didn't work. I even uninstalled it, rebooted the computer & reinstalled the printer, rebooted the computer, added the port to match the printer...same ole same ole. Says it's printing ...but nuttin. I had (last month) uninstalled those 2 updates (KB4560960 and KB4557957) that Microsoft put in back in June. So I don't know. But I will endeavor to persevere. Milo

RE: Printing?

Ruralgas; Thanks Garry. I will give what you said a try and see if that fixes the problem. I will report back when I've gone thru that process.

RE: Printing?

Un-install printer, then reboot computer if you have done so. Make and model of printer? Go to manufacturer's website and install latest Win 10 drivers Thanks...Printer is a Brothers MFC-J615W. I've done all that. Uninstalled printer, rebooted computer, & reinstalled it with the disk that came with the printer & installed & updated all the latest drivers. Nada!

Goot Afternoon all; HELP!!!!!!!!!!!! Bout the 10th of June our printer quit excepting commands from this computer. DW's computer continued to talk with the printer for about another week, then it just quit. I went into her computer and was able to restore it back to the the 14th of June, just before the update), then about a week later it quit talking with the printer again (after another update). They both quit after a stupid Windows 10 update. From all the research I'm done it is said that an Adobe Flasher Player update adds something that screws up the connection between computer & printer. Now neither computer will let me restore back to before June 14 so I uninstalled everything to do with Adobe Flash Player & it has not worked. When we try to print it says it's spooling then says it's printing but nuttin happens. I can still scan & send from the printer to both computers but not from the computers to the printer to print. Anybody have any thoughts or ideas on how we can fix this problem short of dumping 10 and reinstalling it from scratch hoping to get rid of whatever windows installed in that update and then having to reinstall every other program we use. Thanks Milo

RE: Looking at 2013 Cougar 28sgs 5th wheel

Duke-44.. I'm alittle late to the action but anyway my 2 cents worth. This is pertnear the middle of 2020 and your looking at a 2013 model wondering how it will hold up. Must not be built to bad as it is still around unless it has been parked in a dealers lot for the last 4 or 5 years. We have its sister rig a 2014 26sab. Bought it brand spanking new and has over 10,000 miles on it and still going strong with no cabinets falling off the wall, awning coming loose & flapping in the wind or front cap fading. Hasn't been in the shop except for new rubber & bearing repacks. After every trip I give it a thorough going over, preventive maintenance check. Luck of the draw I guess. Milo

RE: Trillium Lake Campground, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

Been there 3 times. Twice with our old AF (27 feet) and once with our Outdoors RV (32 feet.) No trouble at all. Site 21 is awesome! Also stayed in site 28. The place is wicked! Dr. Blake; Thank you sir. Well after more checking and some aerial surveillance, we did secure site 028 for a couple of nights this coming August. Milo

RE: Trillium Lake Campground, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

Thanks everyone for your help. Yeah we have checked on Campendium, looked at the photos on campsitephotos.com, Google Maps, Google Earth Pro, Rec.gov and I'm sure some others. We've done pertnear a gazillion searches. Just thought maybe someone on here had actually been there and knew the sites. We'll endeavor To persevere. Thanks

RE: Trillium Lake Campground, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

USFS "Facilities: The campground offers dozens of single and double sites for tent and RV camping. Some first-come, first-served sites are available, as well as some fully accessible sites. Parking surfaces are mostly paved, but some are gravel. Each site is equipped with a table and campfire ring with grill. Accessible vault toilets and drinking water are provided. An accessible picnic shelter is adjacent and can accommodate up to 30 people. Parking is available. An accessible amphitheater within the campground can be reserved for day use and can accommodate up to 30 people. Educational programs are held on weekends throughout the summer." Here is a hint, to get that info I highlighted the name of the CG in your post, right clicked it, selected Search Google. And the first hit in the list was this. Try that next time. The reservation site will have individual stats on each campsite. Or use google maps. agesilaus, Thanks for your time but you know what...I did that. I went thru 1/2 dozen googled sites + the USFS site. But I was asking "Does anyone have any KNOWLEDGE of the sites". You know like has anyone actually been there and seen the sites.

Trillium Lake Campground, Mount Hood National Forest, Oregon

Good Evening; DW and I are in need of some help please. Last September we stayed at Oak Fork campground at Timothy Lake. The site we booked, the 5er would not fit in it and we were lucky there was one open we did fit in. This year all the sites but 3 were already booked and I got aced out of the last 3 this morning at opening bell. Trillium Lake Campground just north of Oak Fork campground still has 4 or 5 sites left. Question ...Does anybody have any knowledge of what the sites are like. We have a 30ft. 5th wheel and I'm not to keen on pulling into a forest service campground 4,000 miles from home out in the middle of nowhere, hoping our rig will fit in to a particular space sight unseen. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Milo
