RE: Water in fuel light came on then off

I've owned my RV diesel for 24 years now, and the one and only time the "water in fuel" light came on was after I refilled the tank during a heavy wind-and-rain event under a canopy. A few miles down road the warning light flashed on and off a few times, but I kept driving until the rain stopped and I was able to pull over. I drained the fuel filter bowl of a few ounces of fuel. I don't know how much water it might have had in it, but that light never came on again. So whatever water I picked up, it was not enough to cause me real problems.

RE: LT tires on your TT? Let the fight begin

My 2006 Jayco came with 14-inch Maxxis 8008 STs, and I've been using that tire ever since. The only problem I ever experienced was the beginnings of a separation with an 8-year-old tires. I knew the tires were "iffy" due to the age, but I managed to squeezed one more trip out of them, to Key West. Fortunately, they didn't fail on the road, but when I got home I saw signs of the separation. I replaced them with a new set of 8008s and live happily ever after.

RE: What kind of RPM's do you get? What about MPG?

I have a 1996 F250 diesel with an automatic and 3.55 differential. At 60mph in overdrive on the flats, I'm at 1500 rpm and can usually depend on 14mpg towing a 27 foot Jayco travel trailer. Things change a bit when geared down in the big hills and on mountain grades.

RE: Ford 7.3 vs GM 6.6 fuel economy TFL video

Since the year 1996, this is the fuel efficiency I found that I depend on in still wind conditions on flat roads with my 1996 F250 7.3L diesel automatic with a 3.55 differential and a topper on the back and a loaded-for-camping gross weight of about 9,000 pounds: 23mpg solo at 55mph 21mpg solo at 70mph 14mpg towing 27-foot, 6000-pound Jayco Jayfeather at 60mph, 1500RPM 16mpg towing 27-foot, 5000-pound Airstream International at 60mph, 1500RPM

RE: Tire pressure gauge

My 2015 Mazda3 also uses the anti-lock brake system to read the tire rotations instead of the actual tire pressure to let the driver know there is a problem with a tire. It works on the principle that an under-inflated tire will start revolving faster than the others due to the lessened circumference. It works well. The other day I found an unexpected bonus to this tire-problem approach. I got a tire warning on the road and pulled over to check things out. I found that all tires all had the proper tire pressure. So why the alarm? Well, after looking closer at the tires, I found the problem: one of the tires had a bulge in the middle of the tread because of a belt separation. The reason the alarm let me know is that with the bulge, that tire's effective circumference was enlarged, thus causing it to rotate more slowly compared with the others. The system alarmed because of this discrepancy. Brilliant!

RE: need a trailer that is low to the ground

My 27-foot 2006 Jayco JayFeather rides low and is easy to get in-and-out of. Even so, I've never scraped anything, and the waste discharge pipe is just ahead of the axles, so I've never had problems hitting anything.

RE: not your normal tire thread

Maybe Maxxis quality has deteriorated, but my 2006 Jayco came with Maxxis ST's, and I used them for eight years before they showed signs of belt slipping or something. The only problems I had with them was the occasional flat from nail penetration.

RE: Tire plugs

I'm an old Boy Scout, and I can say that installing a sidewall patch with 65 plugs, eight zip ties and a rock certainly fulfills the "Be Prepared" anthem.

RE: Reliability of new 2015 6.7 powerstroke or Cummins Diesel

I'm holding onto my '96 F250 diesel. It's as reliable today as it was back in 1996 when I drove it off the dealer's lot. It cost me about $25K, which included the Camper Package option so I could use it as an RV. It's been a reliable and faithful friend through the years, and it will be running long after I'm no longer able to drive. In fact, one of my grandsons asked me for it when I'm done, and so that's where it will wind up some day.
