RE: I refuse to double tow.

Without adequate pin weight I don’t think he’d be on the highway. I had to add a few hundred pounds of counter weight up front to safely carry 1000 lbs behind my fiver. Would that UTV weigh 1200 lbs? It appears to be a four seater RZR, probably around 1500. I'd sure like to see the welding ,and bracing to accomplish that. Lot of naysayers ,but it looks to be working. Sure would like to know more about that setup. Can't be a 4 seater, they are much longer than the unit pictured. That is 1400+ depending on the make model. My new Kawasaki KRX is just under 2K.

RE: Registration fee for 5th wheel in AZ

I bought an utility trailer to move my Can Am Spyder three wheel motor cycle between Arizona and Washington each spring and fall. $175 for a life time plate!Cars, trucks and RV are really expensive in Arizona however.

RE: 2018 EXPLORER MPG WHILE TOWING

Hemi problem was fixed with 2016 models. My 2015 got the upgrade under warranty and never had another lifter/cam issue. I should have mentioned that also. Although rarely we have a couple newer ones roll through the door now and then. Still not an issue. How many dropped Hemi valve seats have you seen?

RE: 2018 EXPLORER MPG WHILE TOWING

I have a 13 limited 3.5 N/A. Highest highway mileage I’ve seen was 22. The only towing I have done with it was my 3 place snowmobile trailer so this was winter in single digits, but it was 8! The only time I have towed in warm weather was a 6X12 U haul with a couch in it, I got 12. My 12 Chrysler 300 with the Hemi gets better mileage than it. I would much rather have an engine that burns more fuel vs burns up cams. What? The 3rd generation of Hemi engines are poorly designed and it is hard for the cam lobes and roller lifters to get lubed. If they are idled a lot, little or no oil gets splashed up on the cam. The raised cam shaft position caused the cam lifters do not get enough oil. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iTL8QEU2NwE

RE: What a deal!---no thanks

Were any of them 6.0s? No and there was no 7.3's on the list either. Yeah, they know owners do not want to part with their 7.3's.

RE: 3.31 gears at 40,000 lbs gross.

Is is not true that the pinion gear in a 4.10 diff is not as strong as one in a 3.31 diff? Or is it the ring gear? Just saying! I loved the tall gears in my former 2015 SRW RAM with Aisin. I thought I had the best of both worlds. 1750 RPMs that 80 MPH yet towed heavy without issues.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

In the 70's it was 8 gal max in the Seattle area. My 74 K10 SNB had three tanks. OEM 16, 18 saddle on the other side and 30 where the spare tire mounted. But if the station would only sell you 8 gallons, hauling the extra MT tanks around did you no good. The only advantage was you could go to the station, get 8 gallons wither you needed it or not. In the instance now, the fact you could fill all those tanks means you could be sure 5 other people could not get the 10 gallons they need. But your talk of the 70s brings up a good point. Nearly 50 years, every once in a while something happens, the oil companies give the sack a good squeeze. Then many try to shake the hand off, but soon we tell them to get another grip. How long before nobody can sing base? I drove for Seattle to Dayton, Oh in it a couple times, once out of Washington State I did not have fuel issues. I think because on the refineries in Washington they used fake shortage to pressure the locals.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

^^^^^^^^ "do is give you a better chance to hoard fuel." ^^^^^^^^^^^ That wasn't very nice, was it? No need to get snarky. I'm thinking of those people who have a small fuel tank in their rig and can't get to another station to get fuel. What the heck is wrong with that? Sorry if I offended you. But If you had 1000 gallon tank, and it was MT you would be no better off than me with a MT 25 gallon tank. OTOH just like people when they saw TP in the store buy a 6 month supply so others could not get what they need. And I'm sure that this kind of thing happens couple times a month... And all this in convince to cry about, it is still against the rules to talk about the actions taken to be sure we don't prevent it. In the 70's it was 8 gal max in the Seattle area. My 74 K10 SNB had three tanks. OEM 16, 18 saddle on the other side and 30 where the spare tire mounted.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

Me Again, again you one upped me!!! I have a 5 gallon tank and you just had to go 6 gallons.:B Had it for years. I think it is still on one of my Rubbermaid box up North. It sat in the truck trunk just above the diesel fuel door. Did not even have to take it out of the box. My super siphon would worked great to transfer the fuel to the main tank. https://i.imgur.com/Am1AHsAl.jpg https://www.amazon.com/Siphon-Original-Safety-Grade-Valve/dp/B01N5MTGQS/ref=asc_df_B01N5MTGQS/?tag=hyprod-20&linkCode=df0&hvadid=312142020868&hvpos=&hvnetw=g&hvrand=4594070942908049709&hvpone=&hvptwo=&hvqmt=&hvdev=c&hvdvcmdl=&hvlocint=&hvlocphy=9030012&hvtargid=pla-524056062450&psc=1

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

"In my opinion, a heavy TALL RV is foolish. It has a tall roof, that contains air space you can't use." Stop by some time and I will give you a tour. 5er's have to be tall if a 6'2" person wants to stand up in the upper bedroom area. Then our roofline stays level from there to the back and the cabinetry goes up to and near the ceiling giving us a lot of storage that is nice when living in the RV. Besides who wants to feel like they are in a Cave. We love the high ceiling and large windows in our 5th wheel. https://i.imgur.com/TtwbgX6l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/zb5tkotl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6XFpC2Ll.jpg Towing the bumper pull that weighed half as much did not result in much better mileage. https://i.imgur.com/ZYgladWl.jpg I carried a 6 gal diesel can off and on, and usually dumped it into the tank when I got to Arizona or back to Washington. The 2001.5 towing a lighter trailer and with a larger tank had better range. I considered the Titan replacement tank for the 2015, however it is gone now, so no longer as issue.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

2 posts above I disagree with. 1- the big tanks do save a lot of money and 2 I have been in that same Kroger in GA with my DP with the same trailer at 72ft no problem. I never had any store discount and put 100+ gallons in the DP. It’s a choice and if you want to ride you have to buy fuel no matter what it costs. Ya simply don't want to take chances when there are two trailers behind the tow vehicle considering access and egress. https://i.imgur.com/xmZylCYl.jpg I would over the evening phan my morning fuel up if require with Google Earth, planning my route into and out of a filling station, when we towed the 39'4" 5th wheel.

RE: Benefit of extra fuel tank.

I was bucking a big head wind yesterday towing and managed to get 6.5 mpg. Barely made it to my usual fuel stop. I filled 31 gallons in a 32 gallon tank. Headed North for the summer?

RE: F150 w EcoBoost 2.7

The issue isn't the weight. It is the air drag on a 10' high 8' wide trailer. The 2.7 will easily handle the weight. Any engine will struggle with the air drag. He really needs to look at ways to reduce the air drag. Which means slow down. That is the biggest fuel saver available in any tow vehicle.

RE: F150 w EcoBoost 2.7

My rig is about 10’ high and 8’ wide. I keep it to 60-65 mph and haven’t put the truck in “tow mode” yet. It seems if I go any slower than that here in FL, I’ll end up as roadkill pretty quickly. I’d be interested to know what your brother is doing to get better gas mileage with his 2.7. Thanks again! Try the tow mode, it may put the engine in a better RPM range for improved mileage.

RE: Rv-ers prefer Duramax?

They have all been great rigs. My son owns the first one with now over 450k, third one a friends Son owns it now with well over 400k. Third was traded in on last one. I still own the last two. FWIW, I have never taken any change out of "the cup" :B https://i.imgur.com/HEmRMgNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/kgmnWPAl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/vgYWnC3l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/q4JC0pdl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Nggu54Pl.jpg I guess I was a cheap scape for 27 years.
