RE: Tow truck ideas / advice

I think some people used to replace the springs with heavier ones off of a truck. I'd check somewhere like Rock Auto to see what they have. Probably cheaper than genuine Ford, but still good quality available. I think the F250 front springs were rated at about 2600 lbs so I'd look for at least that. I'm guessing you can probably get 2 with new U bolts for around $500 and it sounds like you guys are reasonably mechanically inclined so installing them would be simple enough for you. A whole lot cheaper than a new truck. Steering not returning to center is usually worn suspension/steering parts, but you've replaced all of those. If the alignment were causing it, I think you would notice that even though you had an alignment done too.

RE: Tow truck ideas / advice

The only other thing I can think of you might try is heavier springs. If I recall correctly, the front springs on the Excursions were softer than on the trucks to help with the ride. Too softly sprung could lead to wandering. Before I sold it, I would try to find a good suspension shop and get a second opinion.

RE: Pockett door off track stuck in wall

I have to agree with Lou. I'd get a tension curtain rod and put a curtain over the opening to suffice to complete your trip and then deal with it when you get home and have time. Cutting the door down may not be an option as the door may not be solid. Everything in an RV is typically designed to be light.

RE: Prepaid Gift Cards/Certificates

You can also always use a service like Venmo or Zelle and just send them money directly. Chances are your bank uses one of these or a similar service.

RE: Sorta tells it all, don't it.

One of my favorites was getting a bag of peanuts out of vending machine and reading the bag while I was eating the peanuts. Right there in big letters on the back..."CAUTION!! MAY CONTAIN PEANUTS" Now it was even that there was a warning that bothered me, it was the "MAY" part.

RE: 2004 Viking 1706LS popup camper, uneven roof lift (HELP!)

It looks kind of like a coleman style. Have you taken the cover off of the center section to see what adjustment may be inside? If it is a coleman style, take the cover off and you should see the wiffle tree with four eyebolts (one for each corner) with adjustment nuts. You adjust the length of the eyebolts to adjust the height of each corner. You can also raise the roof to extended position and put equal-length supports at each corner so the roof is at equal height on all four corners and then adjust the eyebolts as needed to lift equally.

RE: Old truck, new look…

Great looking truck. The first things the kids had to learn before getting their full driver's license was how to properly change a tire and how check and change the oil and yes, I did test them to make sure they could safely do all of it.

RE: Insert pins

I've used both and never had either one lose the clip. The grooved one was easier for me because I didn't have worry about the orientation of the clip hole when putting the pin in.

RE: Influenza 2022-2023 Experiences - Comments Etc.

We went to Myrtle Beach the first 2 weeks of October, right after the hurricane went through. The first week the wife and I were fine but the second week we both became ill with 'something'. We thought was allergies with the sneezing, runny nose stuffy head symptoms. I got body aches for 3 days along with the other symptoms....and no, we had not gotten our flu shots as yet. The stuffy head and sinus issues lingered for 2 more weeks after we got home to East TN. We have since gotten our flu shots. Schools here in TN are being closed because of a high rate of illness among the kids. Looks like we will just keep avoiding crowds and limiting our contact with others. Definitely could have been. When I had Covid, the only symptoms I had were runny nose and fatigue. Never had a cough, sneezing, headaches, fever, etc.

RE: The end of an era.

I'm kind of sad to see it go. It was always good for a laugh and occasionally even provided relevant information.
