RE: Bed cover for 2022 F350 8" when NOT towing

I use an access Lorado roll up cover on my F250. It is low profile, about 1/2 inch above bed rail when installed. The access covers hold up well, and seal good too. I've had several with great results. The company will stand behind their product, if ever needed. Jerry

RE: Short bed truck missing back window

^So Ken, if thinking of buying a new long bed dually, you should build a new house/garage for it to fit in? Home building kind of spendy right now, as are the new trucks! Cummins12V98 said: "My wife drives our RAM DRW Crew cab in Down Town Palm Springs, CA." That is commendable, and you are lucky to have her! Not many drivers would want to double tow your rig, up/down the left coast, like you do. Yup, some folks are more capable, less likely to have damage, in various towing situations. Jerry

RE: Outside speakers for Wolf Pup

Agree with Mitch, get marine grade, same size, but better quality speakers. Yours should have lasted much longer than 4 years. Bought my FW new Aug of 2012. The speakers still sound great, even when loud, in my driveway, while drowning out my neighbors music. :) In CG, volume is very low, as they are ear height when sitting on patio in chair. Still sound great! Jerry

RE: Short bed truck missing back window

Some non-sliding hitches work better than others, due to their ahead/back adjustment. Each brand of truck will differ, when placing the hitch pin center over the axle center. Ram standard bed trucks have the shortest distance from rear axle center, to back of cab. In most cases, with the newer rounded front FWs, and a bit longer pinbox, you will not need a slider, especially with Ford or GM. You still need to be aware in extreme backing/turning, same as towing a TT or boat. However, there will always be folks with broken windows/damaged cabs. I've seen the damage from unaware people towing any type trailer, snowmobile trailer, cargo, boat, and utility. Jerry

RE: Pactola Lake campground & Sheridan Lake campground

The Sturgis cycle rally is from Aug 5-14, so the B Hills will be full of motorcycles. Just an FYI. I would call the SD state park number and ask about availability, and size/clearance issues. Jerry

RE: Rear window reflective sun shade

The width of our window is the issue, unless we flip them and use two. I got mine from Camping World, it came 4' by 10'. I cut it off for my 4x6 foot rear window, and place it between the shade and glass. It does a good job! It was one piece of reflectix insulation, foil on both sides. Jerry

RE: AC air not cold

My Dometic 15K AC does a great job, cooling my 31" FW. I also think it has more to do with the insulation and build quality, rather than an AC not doing the job. My FW is described as 4 season, and is the most quiet inside of the 4 I have owned. Does your coach seem stick house quiet, when camped in a RV park, or does it sound like the door and a window or two are open? That describes my previous FW! :) I can start mine any time, even when temps are high inside, and it catches up, slows to low fan as temp gets near stat set temp. It then cycles on/off when set on auto, but never needs to return to high fan to keep up. Jerry

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Was hoping to see some pics of Cummins 2014's camp site and the likely beautiful streams he fly fishes in Montana! Jerry

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

Pictures!!!! That's what I've been waiting for, pic of water, boat, equipment, and fisherman! I've always been an avid hunter, but never cared much about fishing. Never had the patience for it, and was always last to catch a fish, if at all. Would be fun to watch a real fisherman haul in a 21 pounder! I'd enjoy being out on the water, having a beverage or two, and drive the boat. I can get up early, stay up all night/all day, short term! I learned to water ski as a child, and got to be quite the expert/showoff over the years.:) Jerry

RE: Piece of **** inept motorists!

I agree with Chris...a whiskey dent can be anything between a huge efn dent to just a ding?? Hate to bother a man on vaca, but a pic would add clarity to this post, and help to see if the OP is justified with his anger??? Jerry

RE: Can I get on my roof?

While my current RV roof is walkable, many are not. I have used a 2" extruded polystyrene foam rigid insulation sheet rather than plywood to stand on, due to it being light weight, easy to handle, and more comfortable to kneel on. If you buy a 4x8 sheet, you can cut into several pieces, so it's easy to move about, moving one piece, while standing on the other. Walking on the roof, is not a one roof fits all! If you are 300+ lbs, compared to the guy that is 160! :) Jerry

RE: To a Suburban water heater from Atwood

Yes, you can open the low point drain, lift the pressure relief valve on the heater, to drain the water heater. Even if you take the anode out to drain, it will not all drain. It is a good idea to pull the anode 1-2 times a year, and flush the sediment from the bottom of the tank, with a wand. To remove all water from tank, you will need to use a shop vac, with a small flex hose added, to suck out the last of the water. Be sure the electric heating element is switched off, before emptying the tank! Jerry

RE: Ford vs. Ram vs. GM Diesel HP/TQ Ratings

That is good thinking Larry! I've purchased many types of vehicles over the years. If I had an issue with a car, truck, motorcycle, snowmobile, or trailer, that made it not enjoyable, to use/drive, I just traded for a new one. Now if you want to talk about expensive trades, try trading spouses! Jerry

RE: Portable Hitches

If you decide to go with a rail mount system, a couple of good choices are a B&W Patriot, that you may find used, or look at e-trailer for best price (free shipping), or the Andersen rail mount. Jerry

RE: Portable Hitches

On that age truck, I'd just install the rail system, and use plywood between, to keep bed flat for TC. While adding the turn over ball system would be nice, it would cost twice as much as the rail system with standard hitch. If your truck already has a ball system for gooseneck attachment, then both Pullrite, and Andersen make a hitch to attach to it, that can easily be removed for TC install. Jerry

RE: Getting propane tanks in and out

Someone is always available to assist if a person just asks. ORRRRR many places have a propane truck come by to at your campsite. My thought on getting a difficult job done, is work smarter/if their is a will, there is a way! I always hated asking for help. I do have a couple young helper choices on speed dial if I really need someone. The tip they receive, makes them anxious to help, and they always say "call me anytime" when they leave. Jerry
