RE: Hwy 97 BC to California

When are you planning to leave? If in the near future watch the weather forecasts as snow can hit any time. Also be aware chains are mandatory in Oregon but if it turns bad wait it out.

RE: Missing couple camping on Padre Island confirmed dead

Her bil is on another forum I frequent, the family is taking it very hard. There are no answers but I cannot fathom the mentality of some members of the human species. I won't call them people.

RE: Towing a Ram 3500 manual ?

That may cook the transmission as only the output shaft is turning. Best to check the owners manual or install a driveshaft disconnect.

RE: Is it a fiver or class a or c?

They want to be real careful first thing in the morning. Tuck and roll.

RE: Winter ALCAN Trip

Having dealt with the Alaska highway in winter I would fly and use hotels. Camping ain't fun in those conditions and a breakdown can be life threatening.

RE: Remanufactured parts rant.....

I would like to know where I can buy a Cummins water pump for 60 bucks, I'll take all you have!! I went to Ford for a starter on my 97 Ranger, they sold me a reman as oem was no longer available which is common for older vehicles. A year later I am replacing it again, it was not an easy job and I was not happy.

RE: Last Post, DW has died

I am truly sorry to hear this Ron, I lost mine two years ago. It is hard to adjust, you will be turning to her especially after the lights go out and she won't be there. I know your heart is not in rv'ing and won't be for some time but don't forget your friends here.

:B What are you suggesting?

RE: Now that is a big Truck Camper

Certainly lots of storage for extended stays in the outback.

RE: Questions about pulling a fifth-wheel with a half ton TV

If you have the 5 1/2' box you won't be able to tow a fifth wheel. With the hitch over the axle the trailer nose will be too close to the cab to allow turning. My current fiver, an old 25' Prowler, grosses at 5600# which puts close to 1200# on the hitch probably maxing out your truck. IMHO, stay with a tt or get a heavier tv.

RE: Should I take the RV or not?

It would depend on road conditions and the weather. Do you have places to overnight on the way? I have done that distance many times in one day.

RE: Motorhome Crashes Into Las Vegas Casino

Don't get mad, get even! I wonder if the tow truck is up to the task. Sheesh!!

RE: Looking to sell - any advice?

x3. You are going to take a beating with new units going for as much as 30% off MSRP. If you financed it is going to take a chunk of cash to get out of it. Interestingly, i can't use an rv as a residence for more than two weeks. I can live in it temporarily as long as I have a building permit for a permanent structure which has to be completed within a limited period of time, the rv then has to be moved off.

RE: Preventing Butyl Tape from oozing out

I wouldn't worry about it. Al the joints move over time, oozing out is normal. There is still enough to seal the joint.

RE: tires/snow rating / not worry? / chains are solution?

If you are not satisfied with Ford's choice of tires talk to the saleman about upgrading, he will be more than happy to do so. Of course it will be on your nickel so shop around, an independent tire shop may do better regarding price and selection. If you do go with chains don't cheap out, a broken cross link or cable will beat the daylights out of your new truck and likely tear out a brake line. Also make sure you know how to properly install them. Having driven on snow for more than fifty winters I would suggest you will probably never need them unless you plan to drive in extreme conditions. If you are not experienced in winter conditions learn to lighten the right foot especially on the brake pedal.

RE: suggestions on models

A fiver approaching 12,000# is not 'half ton towable', I don't care what anyone says. I feel your pain though, at 6' I am cramped for space in the nose too.

RE: Group Camping Food Planning Question

I go out with two couples. The women plan the meals weeks in advance and one insists on doing most of the cooking but they work together. I bring bacon or sausages for breakfast and usually desserts for dinner. There is always too much.

RE: Trouble with California

I wonder if I would be arrested and deported for that. We got searched once at the international border, cost us a tomato.

RE: Lock for generator

A determined thief will get it no matter what, the chain and lock just keeps honest people honest. If they can't steal they may take a hammer to it so either way you lose. Tie it down to deter the quick grab and run types and keep your insurance current.

RE: Oops, Dodge just threw you under the bus...

They are building the entry level pickups lighter and lighter to get fuel miledge up and pricing down, they attract customers who will seldom if ever carry more than a couple of bags of potting soil. Factory payload ratings also err on the side of caution so they can't be sued when 1320Fastback puts 2 tons on his D250 and breaks it.:B
