RE: Absolute positively the worst road ever

I think the worst I've traveled is HWY 10 and 50 across SW Colorado. I don't think the highway was that bad of shape but there was absolutely nothing to look at other than miles and miles of abandoned railroad track. Those highways too were another Google Maps shortcut.

RE: Turning your truck like a skid steer

Bradley drivers know this as neutral or pivot steer. That could get ugly in tight areas if you aren't used to it.

RE: Camping Lights

This probably started a few years ago with the invention on those cheap, color changing LEDs. We tried the color changing LED strip light under the awning for a few seasons. I was more curious to see if a certain color light was easy on the eye but drew the least amount of bugs while we sat outside. Not sure what the issue is with leaving a porch light on, it's not like a directional flood light. It's an amber, low watt light that helps the occupants see those black steps when they enter the camper at night. But I'll agree that if you are in the camper for the night, the lights should go off.

RE: "Death Wobble"

I had the death wobble on my F-250 last year. It occurred with 29k miles on the odometer. My dealer applied the latest TSB at the time, replacing the stabilizer and adjusting the caster. Within a few weeks of that, I added an aftermarket dual stabilizer and replaced the tires. I'm at 40k miles now and haven't experienced the wobble again. If you look at the threads on the Ford Enthusiast forum, you will find guys with low mileage 2019s experiencing the issue. Not sure if Ford has really found a fix but the stabilizers always seem to be on back order for the TSB.

RE: Ford is interested in 4 wheel steering

Maybe they'll give it a "crab" feature. Ever operate a Lull? LOL. Lol...Yes, well the Skytrak's the Army has.

RE: Ford is interested in 4 wheel steering

GM trucks offered optional 4 wheel steering (dubbed Quadrasteer) for a few years and it proved to be too problematic and costly to maintain. I suspect the patent is on how they are performing the steering, not the concept. Some fellow military vets here maybe familiar with the HET trailers that have steering on them to make them more maneuverable.

RE: Can installing weight distribution hitch be a DIY project?

It can be a DIY project but you may need some uncommon tools. In the case of the Equal-i-zer, a 1-7/8" thin wall socket and 320 lb torque wrench are recommended to install the ball. I didn't have a 1-7/8" socket that would fit in the trunion cavity so I had a trailer shop install my ball with an impact; they didn't have a torque wrench that large either.

RE: New 2020 Ford engines for Super Duty (gas or diesel) who has one, or towed with one?

Is the 7.3 an available option on the F450 King Ranch pickup? If it is, I couldn’t figure out how to change it from the Diesel engine it defaults to. :):) It looks like the 7.3 will only be available in the chassis cab in the F-450...if I am reading this correctly. I don't think Ford makes the chassis cab in anything higher than an XLT trim: 7.3 media release

RE: Help with towing math and trailer /vehicle specs

Sounds like the 6 speed behind the 5.3 is a vast improvement over the 4 speed. I had a 2007 1500 Silverado with the 5.3, 4 speed and 3.42 gear and thought it was a gutless truck in the rolling hills of Missouri. Out trailer at the time was Jayco 26BH, around 5,600 lbs loaded.

RE: Looking For Campground Near Wallace Idaho

AllStays Idaho CG map Doesn't look like there are many CGs within 25 miles. The ones I found (farthest to closest) is Crystal Gold Mine RV park in Kellogg, Blue Anchor RV park in Osburn and Wallace RV Park in Wallace.

RE: The TFL guys bought a 7.3L

They teased about a comparison test between a SuperDuty 6.7L diesel and a 7.3L gasser a couple of weeks ago. Still waiting ! Don't they do some of those tests at higher elevations? Maybe snow is impacting those tests areas.

RE: Pickup driver caught after cops find him hauling 53? trailer

Wow..just wow. Why would you go thru the trouble of rigging an air tank and that "hitch" when you could have hired someone to move the trailer? I bet the fines are more than paying a legit OTR owner/operator.

RE: The smell of a dead mouse..

If there was one mouse inside, there are probably more. I worked briefly for a pest control company. The strategy in mouse control in a stick and brick house is to identify and seal points of entry, place baited traps inside to cull the remaining mice in the house then place rodentcide in pet/child-safe bait stations outside. We used copper mesh and a brick mortar repair compound to seal holes you could stick your finger thru. Larger holes were sealed with galvanized flashing. I'll add from my own experience that despite removing all food from my TT, I had mice in the camper more than once. It's not only food they are after, it's shelter.

RE: Fuel problems

GM built it but when was the last time one of their service technicians have seen a carburetor? Sometimes it pays to seek older mechanics with experience.

This one? Looks like it's now in both the general and Mexico forum categories...

RE: Ford pickup recall

The wording of this is confusing. Not all of those Super Dutys from 2017 have an electric "release". My tailgate has an electric lock but if it's unlocked, the tailgate doesn't open...mine still has to be opened and lowered manually.

RE: What is this make?

The wheel well opening does't look like the teardrop opening Scotty used many years. Maybe a Forester or Pathfinder?
