RE: Camping at 27 degrees.

We were living in our fifthwheel while our home was being built. I plugged up the wet bay opening with a rag, turned on a 40 watt light and let the water flow with a pencil lead size flow. Several days @15 degrees. We used 2 electric heaters on low over night and would turn on the furnace when we woke up every morning.

RE: Major Ecoboost repair, long delays

With 130k on the clock, I’d be visiting a junkyard looking for an engine.

RE: Dealers lots are filling up

I have 2 Ford dealerships within 15 miles of me. One has no Super Duty trucks the other has 1 F250XL. Combined, they have 10 F150s, and 2 F150 Lightnings. As of the first of October, there was still close to 30K ford trucks parked at the Kentucky speedway awaiting chips.

RE: Heating the Garage

If your basement has a wet bay hole for hoses, television cords, plug it up and and just use a 40 watt lightbulb in there. We were in a NC campground during the winter of 20 while our home was under construction. Had many mornings 12-15 degrees not getting above freezing all day.

RE: Shopping new tires - is my shop confused or am I?

I have found my local Automotive dealer, Ford or Chevrolet can meet or beat any price you get from tire dealers like Discount Tire. My Chevrolet dealer got my Yukon 22” OEM tires for less than local stores and our Atlanta, Discount Tire + got me a $100 rebate.

RE: heavier trailer tires and fuel economy

Trailer tires should not decrease mileage but on the towing vehicle yes. Not necessarily tire weight but total diameter will affect mileage. Stock tires on most trucks 16, 17, all the way to 22” tires are within an inch or 2 in total diameter. Now the guys that stick on 34-38” tires to add clearance/looks pay at the pump.

RE: GM vs Ford tow off. Who will win on the Ike?

Its all in the battery size. We need battery technology to make a giant leap where we can fit two to many times the energy in the same space. And to decrease charging refueling times to a total of 20 minutes inline with ICE vehicles.

RE: mounting the tireminder booster under a fifth wheel triler

Mine is held down with zip ties near the batteries in the front compartment.

RE: Ordering a ‘23 Powerstroke

I would rather have a lower rear gear coupled with the 10 speed because the current power stroke is a brute. I read all SD above the XL will be 4 WD only.

RE: Rotten egg smell, again???

Happens when minerals react if WH is not used for a few weeks either with or without anode rod. If on full hookups just run water through water heater for 20-30 minutes and the smell will go away.

RE: Observation--newer trucks tow fivers a bit nose high

In our recent interstate travels, we see many trucks actually doing the squat. We see many SRW trucks and even a few DRWs appear to be carrying a bit more pin weight than they should.

RE: Chirping alarms

Had to replace our CO detector last spring. Had replaced the batteries in 2020 but new batteries wouldn’t stop the alarm . The trailer is a 2018.

RE: how starlink works (highly technical)

My neighbor, north Georgia Mountains, has it with a rectangular dish. He had to wait over a year for his equipment to arrive. He’s says he gets 125mbps while my ground cable gets at best 25. He also says he has not experienced an outage while he and his bride both work from home.

RE: Leaving camper setup and leveled

We keep ours in our RV garage slides out, level and power on 24/7, only pulling everything in when we head out to visit some spots.

RE: TV connection from front TV to bedroom class A

Easiest way is an RF Modulator. Output from TV’s RCA cables to box to cable going to second TV.
