RE: F150 HD Payload and Max Trailer - How to spot them?

If it has the E-Locker rear axle it's more likely got the Max Tow pkg. If it's got 18" wheels (and a very distinctive wheel cover if you know what your looking for) and the e-locker its probably got the HDPP pkg. None of those are going to be readily apparent, but when i was shopping for a new truck, a lot of listings would say it had the max tow package. But, your chances of finding a truck (new or used), that has both max tow and HDPP are very, very slim. The HDPP is the only way to get the more robust frame; and you have to have the max tow pkg to get the HDPP pkg.

RE: Winterizing and sink sprayer hose

I had the same problem you had, except it only happened to me once. After the first time I always unscrew the hose from the sprayer.

RE: Difficulty Reducing Tongue Weight

That's ridiculous! Adding weight to the rear to lower the tongue weight is not going to make it tow better. Read my post above! Yes, I read your post above, that's why I made my post above. Why do you think fifth wheel are more stable to tow than a TT? Clicky

RE: Trailer leaning

Maybe it's heavier on that side. Not unusual to have one side heavier than the other, which would make it "lean".

RE: South Dakota, July 2020

Wall drug can be done on a 2 or 3 hour visit on your way to Custer SP (which is a good place to set up camp for a week or more). Custer, badlands, Mt. Rushmore, crazy horse, wind cave, and much more can be done from Custer SP. Deadwood is a day trip from Custer. Devils Tower is another day trip or it can be 2 or 3 hour visit on the way to....? You have plenty of time for a couple of all day side trips.

RE: 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton

LEMII Yes, if the payload on the sticker on the door of the truck is really 2600 lbs., you will be fine with that truck. The thing is, you will not find that truck on a dealers lot, it has to be ordered. If you are getting a truck on the dealers lot, I can guarantee it will have a lot less than 2600 lbs payload rating on the door sticker. Secondly, get the 3.5 ecoboost and the 10 speed transmission, a much better combination especially if it is going to be your daily driver also. You can thank me later.

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

The option list for towing on the F150 is long and complicated. Maximum towing can only be achieved with the right combination. Because you have a Supercrew you need to know your LOADED vehicle weight and rear axle ratio. Refer to page 15 of the Ford 2013 Towing Guidecomplicated? All you have to say is you want the " heavy duty payload package". And while your at it, get the towing mirrors also.

RE: 1/2 ton or 3/4 ton

I tow a 28 foot TT with a GVWR slightly above yours with a Ford F150, 3.5L ecoboost, 10 spd transmission, HDPP and couldn't be happier. You won't find a F150 with the HDPP on the lot, it will have to be ordered. Best truck I ever owned, even better then the F250 I just got rid of. 10± mpg towing, 15± mpg as a daily driver 20+ mpg on the freeway.

RE: I think I'm stuck.

question on warranty. was it authorized and they just have not done it yet? if not deal with forest river direct and push them. as for the winterization....do it yourself. on their lot. They claim it has NOT been authorized..I think this dealer is blowing smoke up your skirt, any warranty work I've ever had done on my Forester, approval was almost instantaneous.My local dealer charges $199 / hour, minimum 1 hour. So if it is at that dealer, you ain't getting it done for $100. I think you will find the price the dealer charges depends on "market conditions". All things being equal, If i can make $300 working for Mr. A, and $50 working for Mr. B, guess who's work is going to get done this week. Middle of January could be a whole different market condition.
