RE: Turbo

Yes and it’s fairly easy on the mechanical injection engine. You can buy a different profile fuel plate or like I did, grind it to the better profile. In this post there’s a picture of the different profiles. You should be seeing 25+ boost on hard acceleration. https://www.irv2.com/forums/f123/hp-increase-by-modifying-fuel-plate-c-8-3-mechanical-232017-2.html

RE: Best ride for the buck

At that short length you do not need a DP plus there’s not many that short. I made the mistake of starting at 36’ because that was the longest for Public CGs…not true. Buy more MH than you think you need…one time.

RE: Changing oil.

Must be a 15,000+ mile trip?

RE: Replaced "Kingdom", any value?

I threw my Kingdome off the roof years ago. Calling it a boat anchor is being generous… more like a POS.

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

I had the same surprise…21 F350 and no brake controller, but I can tow a 18,000 lb trailer… just can’t stop it. Dealer wanted $200 for controller & $50 to install. Bought a $30 one on EBay and had dealer install for $50. Your truck should have come with a pigtail to use your P3. Getting to the plug requires pulling the dash apart, not that hard once you watch a video.

RE: Bryce Canyon NP to the Northeast

I’ve driven it in both rigs below towing a car. There are several short 8-10% sections.

RE: can I tow on the ball

X2 on the ^^^above. Your payload is 4000 lbs. Even if you had a tongue weight of 1000 lbs, I would not use WD as your front axle doesn’t need mor weight on it.

RE: Summer 2022 trip

Granted I’ve been back and forth to many times so I do N GA to Denver in 2 days as there’s only two good ways to see Kansas… at night or from 30,000’. I would spend more time in CO where it’s cooler and do Branson on another trip to just there.

RE: Best Portable Satellite Dish for Direct TV?

I use the old multisat dish…not as big as the slimline and uses the smaller diameter pipe/older tripods. Has the tilt adjustment you need plus you need the SL3 limb.

RE: Dually life? What about Ford 6.2L

Recently bought a new F350 4X4 single tire with 6.2 for $43K. No it doesn’t have the power of a diesel but also not $80K. Use it mainly to pull a heavy trailer(15,000+ lbs) locally so only getting 5-6 mpg and the 10 speed takes a little getting used to but it does the job. Gets down to how many miles/year you’ll be towing and you do not need a dually.

RE: Residential fridge

Our 21 cuft Whirlpool draws 8 amps DC measured before the inverter…96 watts or 1 amp AC. It runs less than 50% of the time or 1.3 KW/day. One good 12V battery will run it 12-16 hours before needing recharged. A properly installed residential should come with a 1000W inverter and 2 extra batteries and Yes, your tuck shouldn’t have any problems beeping the batteries up, even with the small 12V charging wires. OMG, a second alternator or a dc-dc converter to charge 8 amps part of the time…stay on the porch. PS: we dry camp most of the summer and a residential refrigerator is my best mod ever.

RE: Good Low cost Camping Map Books for The West?

And I thought I was stubborn having resisted getting a smart phone. Using it right now and the amount of info at your fingertips is unbelievable.

RE: Looking for older High Quality Luxury 5th Wheel

Like you, I have F350 but NO WAY will I go back to pulling a 5er. Also, it’s going to be hard to find a LUX 5er compared to a LUX DP.

RE: inverter/charger

Doubt your 02 CCC charges the engine batteries.

RE: Florida domicile people do you stay 6 months there?

It’s not FL I’d worry about as the length of time you posted, NY will. You might get away with it by paying cash for everything for several months while in NY.

RE: Gas cards and any tips for the full time class a diesel

90% of the time GasBuddy finds better prices than TSD or Mudflap. I use the Sam’s credit card (5% back) on fuel everywhere other than Costco. Sam’s has the best price 75% of the time.

RE: Starting search for 20 year old Lux coach. Have questions

In 17 years with our 04 Monaco Dynasty in the family, I never had to reseal anything. I’d say the same is true about our 08 HR Navigator although I’ve only owned 3 years and I did have to replace a cracked skylight. A rig with a rubber roof is a good indication that it’s NOT a “Lux coach”. In the years you’re looking only 4 manufacturers used a chassis with 10 airbags…Prevost, Newell, Foretravel, & Monaco/Braver/HR, yes, you want a rig with a tag axle. So, my list of MUST haves are: 10 airbags and 500+ HP… be wary of the Cummins ISX engines. Aqua Hot heating Residential refrigerator… best mod was getting rid of a NoCold 1200. Girrard awnings Air leveling and maybe jacks to stabilize but no jacks not a deal breaker. And now the nice items: No window over the head of the bed A PSW inverter Enough solar to keep the batteries up while in storage Sliding trays in 2 of the basement bays. AGM or Lithium house batteries less than 3 years old Tires less than 3 years old too

RE: This is too easy!

Like I said at the beginning…”this is to easy”. Your highs are lower than our lows for the next week. To be fair, I have been wearing long pants and shirts the last 2 days and it does cost me more. https://i.imgur.com/ovETnbyl.jpg

RE: Safety Steer-plus

The main advantage of all of the steering dampers…makes it harder to oversteer your rig, especially if it’s a gas rig. Spend your money on trac bars.
