RE: 5.4 E350 performance and reliability?

What kind of reliability and fuel mileage does this produce? reliability...great. fuel mileage...not known for good mileage. Same as V-10 IMO. Ours leaves driveway at 12,000 pounds. We use ours all over Pac NW, which has a lot of mountain grades. But for sure not a ball of fire but has never failed us. Depending on the year model (same as any motor) has its problems, but once understood no problems. Oil of 5w20 surprised me at first, thought the 5w20 was a typo at first. The oil change place I use... used a no name brand oil filter. I now bring my own filter. I use motorcraft. Make sure you use an oil filter with "silicone valve" built in. Prevents oil from leaking down. Which means when starting engine you are not doing a "cold start up" when you start it. Lots of info on the Triton motor available, good dependable motors. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Modular_engine About 110,000 miles now. Fouled injector at 85,000 miles, not sure if bad gas or what? I now carry spare fuel filter and the little disconnect tool set ($15.00) to get filter off and takes about 5 min to change and a spare injector ($70.00) about 30 min to swop out. Also carry spare cop (coil over plug) but never needed one yet. Ford says some fluids are good till 100,000 miles, but I would do fluids sooner. Of course at 12,000 pounds keep up on brake pads. Front brakes real easy, once you do them once. Rear brakes, a pain being there are duels. I have the older 4r100 trans, newer ones better IMO

RE: Dishwasher install issues on 2016 Fleetwood Excursion

I think they are saying they dont want to do the work. Sticks & bricks, I thought maybe 3 hours to instal. Surprize to me, already over hours. Find "dead" space to run your lines. New dishwasher has all install directions. Hardest parts, extending elec and hanging the lines thru cabinet.

methotrexate injecting what size needle?

If you are injecting methotrexate into abdomen, Please respond... What gauge needle are you using? and what is the length of needle? (Our mail order pharmacy messed up I think. They sent 1 1/2 inch. Trying to see what others use. Dr and nurse out of town till next week). Thanks

RE: Generator 2000i problems

Thanks for the comments. My plan... Inspect visually real good looking for bugs. Dirt etc. Then soak in gas for about half hour. I did fill the gas right to the top, would that have any reason why vent messed up

RE: Generator 2000i problems

We are missing the comparison between third time with cap and third time no cap. With no cap...ran ok. Reason why I wonder if these cap venting system go bad. UPDATE...I twisted the vent knob back on fourth several times and felt with my fingers tension more and less as I twisted the knob. I haven't looked real good at how the vent works yet. But I'm thinking a gasket was stuck? Any ideas? It's been running normal since cap back on.

Generator 2000i problems

Started my generator like I do once a month to exercise it, runs normal like it should for about 10 minutes then shuts off. I thought maybe I forgot to open the vent on the cap. Double checked and vent is in open position. Start it again, runs 10 min, then shuts off, gives a couple surges then dies. Then I removed cap and started, running like it should. Question: anything wears out on these caps?

Edited title so words Algodones and dental might show up in a future search.)

RE: Window awning repair???

I had same problem. Someone on here recommed, and it worked... inched back in using a fish hook and line. Pulled little by little after finding sweet spot of very little tension. Took awhile but was successful.

RE: How to tell if fuel pumps are running by current draw?

You could install a Hobbs switch to a small led light, but not cheap $80 bucks my last one. Imo probably liquid fuel in till over engine, then liquid into vapor because of engine heat. So your pump might be working good, but fuel vaporizes before getting to where the fuel needs to be liquid at ie injected into cylindar. Just you or is this common problem with your make and model.

RE: Misaligned shower door

SEA has a web site or used to with parts views. Shower Enclosures of America. Those crazy showers dont look anything to complicated, but took a lot more time than I thought it would to replace squeegie piece at bottom of my 2013 AF.

RE: Broken leaf spring

Google up...axle crutch But dont disregard load on remaining tire. Square tube and chain. But you could probably get parts overnighted and wont need an axle crutch.

RE: TT brake performance after rewiring + shoe/drum replacement

Thanks for posting. If I remember right you are into electric type stuff. For me elec sometimes a mystery. I'm going to do mine soon I hope. Your upgraded wire size, how did you determine the size? And what connections did you go with? (I was thinking of Soderling and shrink tube. ThanksDexter has the wire gauge table below. I didn't know it existed until someone posted in my earlier thread. I used automotive brake cable and the only place I could find #12 was at the local hitch shop. Not the most elegant method, but I tie wrapped it to the axle tubes and the propane pipe. The cable was way too large to pull into the axle tubes and I didn't want to pull down the coroplast. For splices, I soldered them and used shrink wrap and then tape over that. I also securely tie-wrapped the splices at the backing plates so they wouldn't get damaged from vibration. I'd rather see the backing plates designed so that the splices are inside the drum instead. https://i.imgur.com/DIL5wmRl.png width=400 Good info thanks

Battery cut off switch

Out of couriuosly, do oem"s install battery cut off switches to cut all power or leave some power "un-interuped". (Wondering if my tt is wired right.)
