RE: Tow hall mode

If ford want you in tow mod all the time they would not have given you a choice. They would have made it so. Ford used the transmission in many different chassis and load applications. Not all applications are loaded at all times such as motorhomes which are permanently built on their chassis. Those houses with full appliances weigh tons. Motorhomes are always hauling their loads. If using a pickup or flat bed unloaded then Tow/Haul would not be recommended.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

I heard about a guy in the UK that lost a 100 pounds in one day without any harm to his body...left him with a little mental anguish.

RE: Spouse left behind after death at a Campsite, what to do?

FMCA for several reasons, chief among them is the FMCA Assist program. This is, basically, an insurance policy that provides medical evacuation/repatriation, emergency medical reunion, return of mortal remains, return of dependents, vehicle return, and several other benefits. This plan puts me much more at ease should anything happen to either one of us. This is provided with the membership cost to FMCA.

RE: Tow hall mode

My F53 has a WARNING sticker on the inside fuel door that says NO E85. Ford recommends 87 or higher. It runs perfect on 87 octane.

RE: Tow hall mode

Tow/haul is just that: For Towing and/or Hauling. All motorhomes are always Hauling a fully equipped house. They are built with their loads applied and cannot be used Unloaded unless the house is removed. If it was an empty bed truck then it would not be hauling. The F53 chassis is used for multiple build configurations.

RE: old diesel fuel in tank

Yes, fuel polishing (common on diesel boats because of the same storage issue) is an alternative. That will remove water, microbes, dirt etc. That is what the fuel filters and water separator is for. You have the systems already installed on the vehicle.

RE: Small gas tank beef

My 7.3 diesel F350 CC, LB, DRW has a range over 900 miles due to using aux tank. I filled up yesterday on a trip to another city for $2.999 a gallon due to the option of being able to select the right station in my travel. Locally fuel cost $3.159-$3.299. Small tanks cost more to operate due to fewer choices and higher prices.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Back in the day I built a few "Hot Rods" for a few of my customers. Changing the drive train of a Model A to a 327 CI Chevy or a 40 Ford coupe to a Straight 8 Buick, or a Cab-over 1960 Ford Econoline to a 500 HP V8 with a C4 lockout trans and 12 inch differential, or a Nash Metropolitan to a Austin Healy 4 banger, or a... The destination is appreciated BUT the journey contains the HIGHS. "ITS THE ART OF THE DEAL."

RE: front seats

I suspect much of the problem is improper cleaning and/or abuse of the fabric. Our 2008 Newmar Grand Star front seats and both couch are in like new condition. The wife is a professional cleaner and follows the instructions that were provided with the furniture from the manufacturer. Once the wrong chemicals are applied the damage is done.

RE: Toilet Tissue...

Scott used to have "RV Septic Safe" written on their single ply tissue. When I noticed they stopped writing it on their product I called the 800 number on their tissue and talked to their representative and he said all their single ply tissue was safe to use in RV tanks.

RE: Brake Wire

No less than 12 AWG. The more copper strands in the wire the better.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

Aluminum will corrode, fiberglass or plastics will not. I have built "touch tanks" aquariums that hold hundreds of gallons of salty brine water for sea creatures to live in where people can have hands on experience with them and they have not deteriorated over many years of use. Build a tank the size and shape desired out of exterior plywood and use chopped fiberglass and marine epoxy. Am I better off using epoxy or is fiberglass resin do-able, which is also much cheaper? I use West System epoxy...locally it was a $100.00 per gallon a couple years ago, last time I looked. When doing large projects We used five gallon buckets of epoxy and hardener in one gallon cans. Follow recommended mix. I recommend using slow hardener if not use to working with it. The fast will go off before you can use it in hot weather. Use 3 inch fiberglass tape on all joints and brush or roll on epoxy. Chop fiberglass and roll on epoxy. Lightly sand after dry. Apply two more coats using fiberglass and then epoxy and lightly sand between coats when dry. The final application needs to be sanded smooth to avoid any hangs. Must use breathing protection and eye protection from the glass during sanding. Provide plenty ventilation.

RE: Magnum inverter/battery issue

The Magnum Inverter factory folks in Washington state are nice people to deal with. I called them and they gave me the information of two of their certified tech on the east coast; one in NC and one in OH. Took mine to the N C tech and he is a very knowledgeable and professional tech and did a super repair. I would recommend giving them a call.

RE: Bonehead Blunder, I'm an idiot!

Have you ever found yourself sitting in your car in your driveway wondering to yourself if you just got home or was fixing to go somewhere? Or found yourself in the bedroom holding your pants in your hands wondering if you had just removed them or was fixing to put them on? Or be standing in the bathroom wondering why you came in there? I have a friend who's MD prescribed memory pill for him but he forgets to take them. Life becomes a challenge as we mature.

How would you compare Titebond III to Elmer's?

RE: Check those prices

I use Motorcraft oil and filters for all of my vehicles. I pay $18 and change for 5 quarts of 15/40 diesel oil and $9 and change for diesel oil filter for F350 at Walmart. I realize same type of savings for my other three vehicles over the local parts stores. I changed the oil and filter in my Johndeere lawnmower Friday and at the local Advance the filter was $15 plus change but they were out and it would be a next day delivery so they gave me the part number and I purchased it at NAPA for $9 plus change.
