RE: Which Hitch do I buy?

I have a Reese HP and an Equalizer 4-point in the shed. I use this for our rig. https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hitch-Ball-Mount/Curt/C45456.html

RE: Broke my hitch pin today

Do you even need a WDH with your rig? I use a Curt 2.5” ball mount on our 2020 F-250 to tow our 32.5’ Jayco 28RLS. Tongue weight is 1,081 lbs. https://www.etrailer.com/Trailer-Hitch-Ball-Mount/Curt/C45456.html

RE: The price of new trucks is beyond comprehension!

My 94 F-150 XL reg cab I-6 manual cost me about 1000 hrs of pay. My 2020 F250 7.3 FX4 STX crew cab with far more features than a Lariat had in 94, cost me about 1400 hrs of pay a year ago. Worth every penny. Lovin’ every mile.

RE: New Truck!!

I'm sure the Companion is a great hitch, but I love my 24K CURT You should give a B&W a try. I have tried the Chinese Made Curt. It’s definitely not user friendly. My in-law disliked his Ram/Curt. My Curt was very user friendly. No issues what so ever. I read the same narcissistic rants about what a POS my 18 year old two jaw 15k Classic Reese was. Never had any trouble with it. Sold it to a friend and installed it in his truck and it’s serving him well. I’m sure the Curt is a fine hitch as well. Dang sure better looking than the b&w.

RE: 7.3 Ford

Bought my F250 7.3 mainly for towing. Have 1800 towing miles with our 30ft 7800# trailer and it's done an admirable job. This is 4000 mile averages with 3.55 gears: Highway 70mph - 17.3 mpg City - 12.4 mpg Towing - 10.4 The towing figure could take a hit as we're headed to bigger mountains and steeper grades next couple of trips. Same here. Very happy with the 7.3L/10spd/3.55

RE: Black tank stench won't go away

A bad or kinked flat seal in the toilet bowl blade valve assembly will stink up the rv as well. Doesn’t take much leakage.

RE: How to avoid getting blown all over the road

I would recommend a better WD hitch with built in friction sway control like a Reese twin cam or Equalizer 4 point. Even Blue Ox seems to have their own answer to their problem with their version of the Equalizer. I have a Reese HP with no sway control and an Equalizer 4 point that works very well. I prefer a simple Curt ballmount with no WD or sway control. It does wallow around a bit with crosswinds and occasionally with passing trucks. Shorter box trucks are worse than big rigs in my experience. https://www.etrailer.com/question-116001.html

RE: 3/4 ton diesel vs. gas

I’ve owned six diesels. Bored family and friends to tears with how wonderful they were. Got tired of the sound of the diesel groaning up the hills because they can’t rev. A Cummins howling at 2900 rpm up hill gives a new meaning to a screaming engine. Between that and the potential for horrendous repair costs, I went back to gas. My new 2020 7.3 powered F-250 makes very easy work of towing our trailer. Very quiet and vibration free. Not even a hint of a desire for another diesel.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Five days out from the 2nd Moderna shot, I feel fine but, I’ll second the fatigue and sleepiness. Word on the street is this will clear up in a couple of weeks.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Last night, fever reached 101.3 for a couple of hours. This morning, 36~hours after the second shot of Moderna, I’m about 80% better. Even with an uncomfortable yesterday, I still don’t regret getting the shots.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

I got my 2nd dose of Moderna last night. Last night and this morning were fine. Ate breakfast and lunch and did a load of laundry. Now at 23 hrs later, mild headache, 99.6*F and a mild flu like feeling. Nothing that would make me regret getting it. Will update tomorrow night. I’m 60 and 180.

RE: Moderna vaccine (Personal experiences)

Got 1st Moderna shot seven days ago. Sore arm for a couple of days. Other than that, I felt great. Yesterday and today, tired and sleepy. Wife had the same delayed fatigue for a couple of days. Same with her 2nd dose. Must be our bods making antibodies. She’s all back up to speed now four weeks after her 2nd shot. Wow. That may explain a few things for me. I had zero issues with the Moderna vax. At first. But about a week to ten days later I felt so tired I could barely move. Me and my recliner "became one". That lasted for about 2 or 3 days. I though it was the weather. I get 2nd dose Monday. Thanks for the heads up on that. :) Thank you as well! That reassures me even more. I’m forcing myself to do things but definitely putting some miles on the recliner.

RE: Ford 7.3L & 10 speed...

Only 2200 miles on mine so far. Towed twice a short distance. No issues, new car bugs or regrets. I’m getting 11~mpg getting groceries, 17~flat highway and it appears around 8.5 towing. I’d buy it again in a heartbeat.

RE: TT Floorplan with recliners on back

Our Jayco Jayflight 28RLS is as close as we could get to your and our wants for a reasonable price. It also has rack and pinion slide mechanism which for me, any other is a deal breaker.

RE: Ford 7.3 Gas motor

With Covid messing up our plans, we haven’t towed very much with ours but so far I’m also very pleased with it. Much like Kellem’s experience.

RE: WDH or not?

I tow our Jayco 28RLS with our 2020 F250 on a 2.5” Curt solid ball mount, no sway control or WD. It wallers around a little bit with with passing trucks in a crosswind but nothing scary. With the 2010 F250, I use a Reese HP trunnion style WD hitch without SC for no other reason than to satisfy the rating of the hitch receiver. Tongue weight is 980~ lbs. Squats the rear of both trucks 2-1/4”. Front rises 3/8”. https://www.amazon.com/CURT-45456-Commercial-Trailer-Receiver/dp/B00IIOBT9Q

RE: Ford Super Duty Owner's Manual

Anybody come across anything interesting reading your owner's manual? I find it interesting that you are to oil the lug nuts a certain way, do you know of anyone that ever does it and does it right? I do. I like the design of the Super Duty lug nuts.

RE: You have 13 yrs 11 mths left to buy a GM gas or dsl vehicle

I hope I live long enough to see it. Internal combustion engines will be the dinosaurs our great grandkids will read about in history class.

RE: Ford F-250 7.3 Gas Engine Axle Ratios

We just returned from a trip with our F-250 FX4 7.3L 10spd 3.55 towing our TT in sig. More than plenty of power. Backing into the side yard through grass and soft ground with plenty of grunt just above idle. In 4 Lo, I have to ride the brake. The only thing 4.30 gears would do is reduce fuel efficiency and make it sound like I needed another gear at the top end. what gear is the truck running in at 65-70 both towing and non-towing? Running empty, it shifts to 10th at 50~mph to run 1200~rpm. Towing 60mph, it likes 8th. I don’t know yet if it’ll shift to 9th or 10th towing 65-70. Traffic is thick in central Florida and, with Covid, we haven’t been out much or for very far.
