RE: 2021 F150 rumors

Back when Ford was making the Crown Vics/Grand Marquis/Lincoln Town Cars, they went from a 5.0 to a 4.6 (if memory serves me right), and if this is correct, the Police Intercepter version of the Crown Vic had a beefed up 4.6. To what extent I don't know, but do know the 4.6's were pretty stout. The difference was cam profiles and duel exhaust. It made about 25hp over the civilian version.

RE: Difficulty getting the tow ball to release from hitch

I had this issue until I learned to disconnect both of my WDH bars before decoupling.

RE: Ford 7.3L gas power numbers

if this 2020 truck is like all Fords I have owned, it will hit its governor at 95 mph. I'm not sure what the max speed is limited to but I think it's either 105 or 110mph. My 2016 F150 will easily hit 103mph. Completely stock with no tuner 2.7 EcoBoost 4X4 with 3:55's.

RE: Popup Camper Top - RR corner won't completely lower / close

Lift it completely back up and start over. As you slowly bring it down, keep stopping and keep checking for obstructions. Take your time. Something is not lining up right and you are going to have to determine what it is. Edit - What's in the rear corner? A sofa? Are you sure that it's as far down as it goes? I once had a sofa not collapsed correctly and had this issue.

RE: Aggressive Sales tactics at CW

all of the add on $, LP tank, fill the LP tank, Battery, battery box, $1000 delivery charge, $1500 if I did not finance with them, I walked. WOW.... I got all that thrown in my my trailer deal from Poulsbo RV.. But, that was a LONG time ago.. No idea what they do now.. Maybe all the dealers do this now?? If so, that's gonna suck, because I am actually considering a new TT in the next year or so.. Has it really changed that much and they charge all this for a cheaply built POS now a days?? Well, gonna have to keep my eyes, ears, and mind aware of all of this moving forward. Thank you OP for the heads up on this kind of thing for someone who hasn't even stepped on an RV dealers lot in some 16 years! Mitch It's not what I've experienced lately. I've bought 3 campers from 2 different dealers in the last 4 years and all were good experiences. Batteries, propane and hitches were included.

RE: Tongue weight issue on new toy hauler

What WDH are you using? I agree that adding front weight is not the real solution. I'll bet that future models of this trailer have the axles relocated.

RE: I hate dinettes

Have owned, borrowed, rented, and walked all types of rv. That does not make me an expert but it does leave me with some perspective and the more matured I become in my rv age, the more confirmed I am that the rv industry in order to see more explosive growth needs to bring to a rapid end the addition of the proverbial dinette to any and every type of rv. Please just stop! My reasons are several but basically revolve around the simple fact that sitting one for more than five minutes is absolute torture. In fact I wish we could all ship our dinette to Guantanamo. Make a terrorist sit in one for more than 5 minutes and he/she will tell u everything they know. Painful I say and also purposeless. Indoor tables are not needed for meals. Even in our homes very few Americans eat at tables. And if we do while camping, it is the outside picnic table. So why does the rv industry force us to go backwards by 20 years and give us sore backs at the same time? Maybe it is to play games which again I say are so much more enjoyable outside. So please rv industry leaders stop with the dinette. Give us another couch or comfortable chairs or even more bunks for the neighbor's kids. I saw one ad recently for a moderately priced 38' class 8 that slept 8.i had to ask how. The answer was a picture of a dinette area removed to be replaced by floor to ceiling 3 bunks. Genius thought I. Whew... Thanks for listening. I feel so much better having gotten that of my chest. While I will respect your opinion I couldn't disagree with it more... Over the years we have had a dinette in every coach and camper we have owned except our newest toy hauler. The rear flip seats and table is close but we miss having a dedicated dinette.

RE: 3.5 Ecoboost Feels Like a V6

So I have a 2017 F150 with 3.5 Ecoboost and 3.55 gears. I rented a 6x10 dual axle dump trailer and loaded it with 2.5 yards of landscape rock. I'm thinking maybe 8000-9000lbs total. Engine did the job, but felt like a lawn mower. My previous 6.2 V8's easily outperform this motor. Now I know why this motor can't be placed in a Super Duty.Trailer also pushed the truck around and was tough on the brakes. Thankfully only went about 8 miles. This motor is great for anything 5000lbs or less, as long as you are fairly aerodynamic. My truck gets 7 mpg towing an ultralight Passport 153ML. Since I drive most miles empty, I like this truck and it is a good compromise. If I pulled over 5000lbs and used the truck only as a tow vehicle, I would pass. Gman HUH??? I tow a 8K gvwr toy hauler around with my 2.7 EcoBoost with no lack of power what so ever. Either something is wrong with your truck or you were way heavier than you thought.

RE: What Fuel Do You Use in Your EcoBoost?

I've got 89K miles of towing and daily driving on my 2016 2.7 EcoBoost F150. I have run both 93 and 89 octane when towing and I can't tell a difference. When not towing, I get over 20mpg on 87 octane and only a tad more mpg if running a higher octane.
