RE: Price breaks on new Pickups?!

I had a rebate coupon that expired before I could make an order for my '22 F-250, but they sent another in the mail before I closed the deal and took delivery in August, so I got the $2500 rebate in the end anyhow. There were very few '21's on Fords lot anywhere because they shut down production early and became the worlds largest manufacturer of medical ventilators. My sales rep said '22s are coming on line now. I got mine early because it was placed as a lot order. Right place, right time, right sales rep. And a decent APR to boot. Pretty good deal and I love the truck so far. Last week was it's first salt bath of the winter so....*CRINGE*.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

We just wont talk about the gas cap issue. (seriously, Ford????) Gas Cap Issue? The gas cap (yes, it has one for all those supposing otherwise)is on a plastic lanyard just like my 150 was, but this lanyard is too snug and wraps around your hand as you unscrew the cap THREE TURNS! It takes two hands to get it off and put it one. One hand to turn the cap and one to maintain the lanyard from winding around your hand. Very annoying. I agree! Why do we need a cap at all if capless fill works in so many other applications. Its ridiculous.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

Im very impressed with my '22 supercrew long bed with the 7.3 so far. It's actually getting better mileage than my sig pic truck as a daily driver AND towing. I got nearly 17 mpg on flat highways and 14 ave combined driving. Towing I get around 9 with 8000 lbs whereas the 5.4 was hanging around 8. The brakes are also astounding. What really makes me giggle is when I roll into the throttle. A 7500 lb truck should not move with this much effortlessness. The bottom end on this low roaring beast is absolutely bullet proof. My only complaint is the somewhat electronic feel typical of todays wonder vehicles, and the 10 speed hunts for gears occasionally. Otherwise, I could not be happier at 5000 miles in. We just wont talk about the gas cap issue. (seriously, Ford????)

RE: Wastewater Tote & Fresh Water Containers - Do you use them?

We have a Barker 42 Gal tote for years. I don't use it much but very nice to have when the kids are along for longer State Park trips without full hookups. Otherwise, with just the wife and I, conserving water, we can do a 3 night stay with on board showers and usually not need it. I use the 6 gal green jugs for fresh water refills. Breaking camp is not an option in my book. It's a last resort.

RE: Tonneau Cover

I just recently bought a Bak Flip folding sectional cover for my new 2022 F-250 Supercrew 8' bed. I understand they cannot guarantee a water tight product, but this was just horrendous. I've seen screens keep water out better. And yet, the cheapest tri fold or one piece soft tonneaus seem to keep water out just fine. He!!, I can see daylight under the front of the soft tonneau cover on the bro-dozer. Live in Seattle, it's rained about 6" this month already, truck is not garaged and nothing gets wet. I too had a poor experience with a hard roll n lock type cover. Drains would get plugged then the leaks started. The drains aren't blocked. The very next day it rained pretty hard and literally filled the bed with water on a flat parking area so much it ran out the back of the bed. It even leaks in the center of the folding joints which are crimped onto the aluminum cross supports with a rubber gasket. Horrible performance. Looks nice, though! Lol.

RE: Tonneau Cover

I just recently bought a Bak Flip folding sectional cover for my new 2022 F-250 Supercrew 8' bed. I understand they cannot guarantee a water tight product, but this was just horrendous. I've seen screens keep water out better. Their tech service was horrible. There was missing hardware to boot, so I had to put it all back away until they sent it two weeks after the fact. I can't say all their products are bad, but the one they sent me WAS. Never again. I won't be happy until I get hard cap again, like I should have to start with. Prices are crazy right now, so this was an attempt at a stop-gap measure. Should have known better.

RE: Campers helping campers

I had a neighbor across the street walk to my truck window as I started my back in, and asked me if I was ok, did I need him to back that in for me. I had literally just started moving backward with my wife watching the rear. I smiled and said, "nope, I got it." He watched for the two minutes it took me to finish the job then silently walked back to his site. Yeah, helpful and nosey....fine line. If I see someone clearly in need of assistance I will offer a set of eyes. That's about as far as I go. Many times I've added my flashlight to the mix when folks come in at night (and no, shining at the truck does NOT help!). I let others figure things out on their own. It's called learning. It's why we're here.

RE: 2022 Superduty launch delayed

...I just looked up the email from the General Manager at the Ford dealer from when I ordered my truck. I was wrong when I told you that I ordered in mid-February. I ordered my truck on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 11 AM.I picked it up on Tuesday, March 20. As I said, it was actually at the Ford dealer sometime the week before, but I was out of town. I guess my question is why my truck took a little less than two months and you ordered in early December and you still haven't received your truck? I am guessing that Ford has a vehicle allocation process that allocates orders to dealers. Even if the dealer has a sold order, it will not be accepted into the system. That's what I was told about my 2022 order. Dealer has several allocations for their own spec, so he put my order in as one of theirs spec'd the way I want it. It got me a place in line because they could put the order in to save my spot sooner but allowed me to finetune options for a while before the order was actually placed. Now thinking I won't see the truck until late fall, maybe even next year the way things are going.

RE: To portable dump tank or not to portable dump tank...

We do a lot of PA State Park camping, so it's something I take along often but don't use a lot. For me, it's better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it. If someone would pump my tanks for $20 at a state park, I'd likely pay it than not.

RE: Forced out of your reservation

The subject at hand being the spot being reserved, not how he makes his living or makes vids, I'd be looking for some compensation in some way. Like a free stay at a future date. Failing that satisfaction, I'd be temped to drive there bright and early and set up my camper before the rest get there, with my confirmation in hand. Thats a poor way to treat customers who have reserved a site. Lock in fee? Maybe for a specific site instead of a site they designate, but my confirmed reservation and accepted fee ARE my lock in to stay there one way or another. I'm thinking Id set up right next to their main office and see if that suits them.

RE: 2022 Superduty launch delayed

That's disturbing news. I just orderd a 2022 F 250 about a month ago and was told would be in by August or September. 2021 Was already a bust year for Ford sales because they stopped production to make ventilators, which we apparently don't need now given treatment options. To top it off (pun intended) I priced bed caps only to find out there is a "world-wide Fiberglass shortage". Even if I could place an order for a cap it would be around $3K! What a mess.

RE: Balance Question

I've been using Dynabeads for years and have very even tire wear ever since. I can't say definitively that "they work", but I have no evidence to the contrary. I had a small tire wear problem at first and it hasn't resurfaced yet. On my second set using them. Hi J Barca! Long time no see.
