RE: Almost found a truck

Your referenced article is over 4 years old. And you obviously don't know what you are talking about regarding new Ford trucks. I own one, I know the differences. It's pretty clear in the specs. Go to square one he was not asking about new trucks he's looking at a 7.3 so it's a 2003 or older. Not much of a Ford guy if you don't know the 250s and 350s are the same truck. Like I said look up a part for the 250 and see that it fits the 350. I suspect your the type runs to the shop and says fix it it's doing ..... Some of us fix our own. Do some research and stop spouting it's old info. When YOU start fixing come back with correct info and stop spreading BS. Ask your friend that the dealer, better yet ask one of his mechanics or parts people. "I believe it's got a bigger rear axle" you believe in correctly the parts book will confirm it. It likely has 3:55 gears but could have 3:73 lower could be special ordered. Ford OEM part numbers

RE: Dualie vs SRW benefits?

I tow a 12,000 lb. (loaded and wet) fiver with single rear-axle long bed F350 and am well-pleased with the towing characteristics. I am not bothered by trucks passing. The GCWR is 3,700 lbs, but that is adequate for this trailer. A SRW can go through bank drive-throughs and drive-through car washes. I don't think that is true of DWR trucks. With a longer and heaver trailer I would no doubt need a DRW. I'm almost the same with my 5W and SRW F350, never had and issue with stability. I do find I end up parking it the back 40 at most places we shop. The CCLB is long and does not fit in most painted parking stalls, DRW would be worse.

RE: Hard to find a full-time spot

Move south there are full timers in nearly every RV park down here. Try Cedar Cove RV owned by friends, they have two parks and 75% are full time.

RE: cleaning the outside of the 5'er

Used this on 3 5W's and all my vehicles, about $7. Apply by hand and buff off with a random orbit buffer: https://i.imgur.com/coFs6atl.jpg

RE: Almost found a truck

I’m not really looking for a truck, but I was driving by the ford dealership and noticed a gas truck, so I pulled in to check it out. Long bed, check; crew cab, check; cloth seats, check; vinyl floors, check; 7.3, check; 4.30 check; F350..... nope. If it was a 350, I would have really been impressed, but for some reason it’s a 250. Oh well, guess I’ll keep driving my old truck. Add the 350 spring pack and you have a F350, re badge it and no one will know unless they check the vin. I believe the rear axle is also bigger on the F350. We had a heck of a time finding our truck. Luckily my friend is a dealer in MD. Had what we wanted and bought it over the phone. But we looked for almost 2 mos solid within a 4 hr radius. Obviously not Ford guy, you need to do some reading. I will guarantee I park the F250 next to an F350 of the same year you will not know the differance without looking at the badging or Vin. Ford/Lincoln/Mercury mechanic for years and owned super duties since 1999. Pick a part and et a part number, same for ether truck. https://dustrunnersauto.com/f250-vs-f350/

RE: Hard lesson learned on water heater anode.

don't go the cheapest route get a good Magnesium rod, cost a bit more. Sacrifices faster to save the tank. Small price to pay, under $15, I carry a spare.

RE: Ford 6L diesel in the news again

^ Ya Shiner, but “your” story isn’t near as dramatic and flashy..... I love just listening to people talk who don’t know a muffler bearing from blinker fluid! Just last night at sons hockey practice, one of the dads is braggin up his new 38’ TT that he bought last week. Basically he got one upped by another dad who bought a peenis enlarging 5ver and towed it to the last tourney and “saved money” by not staying in the hotel (for one night, 700 mile round trip...lol). But I digress... Dad with the new TT, he and the other dude are “camping” this weekends tournament in Boise, cause a $48 RV spot is cheaper than the hotel.... He11 I ran the numbers and it was break even driving the TC over there compared to 3 nights hotel and taking the SRT. Plus with the car I can get to Boise in about 2 hours quicker. Asked him how it tows (his tow rig is a tundra with about a 8” lift and brodozer wheels, biguns like 37 15.50s or something). He said “great, towed like a dream, still got 15 mpg too.” I’d love to follow him up Vantage hill and see what he considers a dream! He’s a dumb arse btw. Nice guy but...wears bedazzled Western jeans and he’s a city slicker. And cross the river with the wind ................ https://i.imgur.com/nXzf8YRl.gif

You'll find more white where the summers are hot, it reflects some of the heat. https://i.imgur.com/CEZmfPOl.jpg

RE: Best/worst reviews no help

This is kind of like Ford or Chevy debate, you find loves and haters what ever you look at, truths some where in the middle. Reading the forums I do I tend to find a lot more people post when they have issues than without. JMHO

RE: norcold

If I read your response correctly, your so called "tech" is an idiot. 1. IF boondocking, YES, run on LP, IF that is what he is stating 2. If plugged into Shore Power or Genset, run on AUTO(default is 120), which will be 120 volts. If on Shore/Genset, Inverter will NOT be running the 120 of the Refer as it will just use its pass thru 120 current from the 120 source. Doug I run on auto at all times and let it switch as needed, that to me was the benefit of the RV over residential. Town I was in last week lost power twice and the fridge just did it's thing.

RE: Headlights aiming up when towing?

Like most Ford owners it is time to bag it! Ford seems to have provided a soft suspension to improve ride. So air bags are a popular add on item. The closer that wants to sell you an extended warranty, paint and interior sealers should include air bags for Fords. Maybe on 250's not the 350's. I agree the LED lights improperly aimed are a pain in the a$$, add the road lights they all seem to think need to be on at all times. Then add LEDS in the grill and over the windshield to be cool and blind everyone else. :R https://i.imgur.com/dzcWLKZl.gif
