RE: Field tricks to remove inside dually wheel?

And while you're anti seizing your wheels, don't forget to lube the spare tire crank and mechanism.

RE: Field tricks to remove inside dually wheel?

You might be able to get a small steel chisel between the rotor/drum on the rim openings and give it a couple of wacks with the tire iron. it's worked for a couple of cars that had seized rims. Then apply anti seize to the mating surface, sparingly. Another trick I used on trucks if you don't have a heavy load, loosen the wheel nuts about 1/2 to 3/4 turn and make some really sharp left right turns, that often cracks them loose too.

RE: One brake over adjusted

That is an interesting and very informative write up John, thanks.

RE: Nubs on stabilizer rod worn down. Can these be replaced?

If you go the 2 nut method, a plop of thread locker will probably keep them together. Just make sure you line the 2 nuts up to allow a deep socket to cover both when cranking.

RE: Nubs on stabilizer rod worn down. Can these be replaced?

Just have someone weld a couple of nuts on the end, then you can use a drill driver with the right socket to go up or down.

RE: My Microsoft Mail has suddenly been reformated

Finally, someone with the same problem I had when looking at the picture. At least 3/4 of mine came out in what the MOD called HTML. I called my provider and sure enough was a problem were I hadn't updated something at my end. That was done, but now I have to hit the refresh button 2-3 times a day to get any pending incoming emails although the setting is for hourly checks. If I go to Yahoo mail, everything is on time and readable.

RE: Trailer disconnected message on F150

Those 2 wires look same as mine, 2019 Coleman 17RD, may be for the solar charging. At the front passenger side of the trailer, there's a square receptacle with a lid about 3 feet above floor level, open it and there's a round plug inside. That's where the exterior solar wires are supposed to go. The white and blue get hooked to the battery. Why Coleman did that is beyond me, just hook the solar up through the controller and then to the battery. Simple test, use an ohm meter on the blue wire to the receptacle I spoke of.

RE: Tire Recall

Well if you wait long enough, all those tires will be gone, exploded, trashed and no pay out required. Novel idea.

RE: Need new tires

I would suggest round ones. Only answer that is not personal brand, tred design personal in nature. Marty I thought you needed square tires for those square fender cut outs on GMs.

RE: Seal around windows, doors, and lights

If it's something I want to last, I go with polyurethane caulk.

RE: 7 pin cable

Maybe the new cable was too short for his application. More contacts and breaks, more corrosion possibilities and breakdowns. I would go with one junction box.

RE: Dometic awning end plug removal pin

Q. Does the pin go all the way to the other side and is visible? You may be able to tap it out with a brass punch if you can figure out a way to support the end piece, or, some tool like a ball joint remover or big wide opening "C" clamp pushing in a smaller item to push the pin out the other side. Good luck.

RE: RAM spare tire tool

Not the jack, I may need the rod you use to lower the spare. With Ford you need a key like thingamajig you place on the end of the crank rod to engage the gear that lowers the tire. Does RAM need one. I need to search the track to see if these spare tire tools are in ir somewhere/ Where are those kept? Under the rear seat?? Back to the question of needing a "key" to lower the spare, not on mine. One of the 4 sections of rod that get connected have a 5 sided open end that engages the stud on the crank mechanism.

RE: Extending Wifi Range???

Not to hijack the thread, but has anyone had any luck with the wifi extenders working through a metal sided building? Anything that has metal, such as metal blinds, doors, furniture, infrastructure, and walls, can greatly diminish or completely terminate the WiFi signal. The more metal there is between your WiFi router and the connected device, the worse the WiFi signal will be.Oct 22, 2020

RE: 2022 F-150 Can Not install aftermarket brake controller!!!!!

Bean counters counting beans, everywhere they can shave off a 1/4 inch of wiring. I would have to ask, did you check and see if there's a brake switch wire to tap into to activate the after market brake controller? The others are just +, - and the blue wire to the back 7 pin receptacle.

RE: Interesting EV’s versus ICE article…

Found this elsewhere. Taken from another source that I saw. Probably the best post ever published on the subject of "zero emissions". Absolutely worth the read! (Translated from English): “Batteries don’t create electricity – they store electricity generated elsewhere, especially through coal, uranium, natural gas-powered power plants, or diesel-powered generators.” So the claim that an electric car is a zero-emission vehicle is not true at all. Since forty percent of the electricity produced in the USA comes from coal power plants, therefore forty percent of electric cars on the road are coal-based. But that's not all. Those of you excited about electric cars and a green revolution should take a closer look at the batteries, but also wind turbines and solar panels. A typical electric car battery weighs a thousand pounds, about the size of a suitcase. It contains twenty-five pounds of lithium, sixty pounds of nickel, 44 pounds of manganese, 30 pounds of cobalt, 200 pounds of copper, and 400 pounds of aluminum, steel, and plastic. There are over 6,000 individual lithium-ion cells inside. To make each BEV battery, you'll need to process 25,000 pounds of salt for the lithium, 30,000 pounds of ore for the cobalt, 5,000 pounds of resin for the nickel, and 25,000 pounds of ore from the copper. Overall, you have to dig out 500,000 pounds of earth’s crust for a battery. " The main problem with solar systems is the chemicals used to turn silicate into the silicon used for the panels. To produce sufficiently pure silicon, it must be treated with hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, hydrogen fluoride, trichlorothane and acetone. In addition, gallium, arsenide, copper-indium-gallium diselenide and cadmium telluride are needed which are also highly toxic. Silicon dust poses a hazard to workers and the plates cannot be recycled. Wind turbines are the nonplusultra in terms of cost and environmental destruction. Each windmill weighs 1,688 tons (equivalent to the weight of 23 houses) and contains 1300 tons of concrete, 295 tons of steel, 48 tons of iron, 24 tons of fiberglass, and the hard-to-win rare-earths Neodym, Praseodym, and Dysprosium. Each of the three blades weighs 81,000 pounds and has a lifespan of 15 to 20 years, after which they must be replaced. We cannot recycle used rotor blades. These technologies can certainly have their place, but you have to look beyond the myth of emission freedom. “Going Green” may sound like a utopian ideal, but if you look at the hidden and embedded costs in a realistic and unbiased way, you’ll find that “Going Green" is doing more harm to the Earth’s environment than it seems. Has. I'm not opposed to mining, electric vehicles, wind or solar energy. But I show the reality of the situation.

RE: Water hose stuck on side of trailer..

Well if the vinegar didn't work, how about the same baggie trick with CLR. My brothers outside house tap was brass and the cheap china aluminum end corroded on to it. A couple drops of CLR and repeated squeezing with big channel lock plies made enough movement to finally get it off.

RE: Uninteresting people

Well if washing their dirty laundry gets them an audience, we know what you can label that audience. Unless they have a direct influence on my life, they are not worth a plug nickle.

RE: Battery tender & storage

Well some people still believe in 3K oil changes, technology changes, their mindset doesn't.
