RE: Replacing New Trailer King RST+ : Only Option Is Carlisle??

We recently moved from Florida to north Georgia taking almost a year of back and forth travel. I rented 5 different Uhaul trailers and everyone had Carlisle tires installed.

RE: Cricket golf carts

I’ve owned several different “Golf Carts” and the Cricket can’t be classified as a golf cart. Golf Carts are work horses. Electric carts make there way through 9-18 holes then back on the charger until called on again. Up here in the hills, we use gas golf carts that last all day every day tugging Big Ben an Trudy up and down the hills. Crickets while fun to use for short down the street and back jaunts are not Golf Carts.

RE: Needless kaos and carnage on the Beeline highway...

Most law enforcement, etc, no use the word "accident". Instead they use "crash". Because in 95 percent or more of incidents it was not an accident. I am always amazed at how some people drive. Because you're around alot of LEO's and "crashes?" Lol Maybe in your infinite toes, you can tell us exactly what the differentiator is between an "accident" and a "crash." If any traffic law was broken, is it not an accident? If it was caused by someone else, is it not an accident because you can't be sure they didn't do it on purpose? Nevermind, no one actually cares.... But we should start a thread about all the people who drive too slow, too. They cause accidents, I mean crashes, sometimes too. As a matter of fact, most states in the south have now changed all traffic accident reports to crash reports.

RE: Battery replacement

Most automotive batteries made in America are manufactured by one of two companies: Johnson Controls, Inc. or Exide Technologies. The dominant replacement market brand names, Interstate and DieHard, are both Johnson Controls products, as is the Optima brand. Usually the batteries are the same except for the badging.

RE: Lithium Batteries

$900 for a battery is an outrageous cost if you are not camping off the grid. Then add another $200 for a converter then who knows how much for an install.

RE: Super Duty Tire Wear

My 2018DRW 4wd was fine until this last spring when I noticed outside wear on both front tires. Had front aligned at local Ford dealer but haven’t driven but 200 miles since service.

RE: awning rolling up, arms and supports not aligned

With awning open, push up on roller tube to relieve pressure and slide awning along roller tube to align. Not at the top since it is screwed into place.

RE: Navigation options

you need cell service for phone/messages etc. For NAV all that is needed is GPS coverage as long as the map is already loaded into the device, and the cell phone will get that as will the NAV system even with no cell service. Now traffic info etc. needs cell service as well. FYI, once the destination is entered into the phone and the desired route selected, cell service is no longer needed to receive turn by turn navigation.

Carrols, meat market that has a small RV park, and if you stay there, you get a discount to the store. Carrols is in Ashburn, 160 miles south of Atlanta.

RE: Question on 5th wheel brakes

They work by way of a magnet. As you apply the brakes, the magnet try’s to attach to the drum, as the drum rotates, the magnet levers the shoes against the drum. It may take more movement to apply enough force to slide the hitch or even reduce king pin pressure.

RE: Broke my hitch pin today

Just weld the adapter to the stinger and be done with it. You can buy extra adapters and a cheap hitch shank if needed for say a utility trailer etc.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

As of mid July, Ford had over 60,000 2021 vehicles built but parked around the country awaiting chips. I assume Chevrolet and that other brand, Dodge Ram are in the same boat. You are probably correct on getting your deposit back. I would think the big 3 will have to heavily discount those parked units to move them once regular production and chip availability resumes.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford F250 7.3L

All built in navigation systems are sometimes several years behind. In fact my F350 was almost 4 years behind showing new roads when it was brand new.

RE: What do you think about this set up?

I have a 2013 Chevy with the 5.3 eng and trailer package with a towing capacity with the 3.42 rear at 9800 lbs. Thinking of going to a larger trailer that is 29 ft and dry wt of 6600 lbs.I travel light and just me and the bride and one cat. I know things add up but I think or feel this is doable. That are your thoughts? Thanks Ed. I do not need to be the first one over the hill and would be staying here in California. If you like towing in 3rd maybe 4th gear all the time. I had that same setup on a 2013 Chevy Z-71 cab and a half, pulling a 25’ toy hauler, Dry weight 6,000 with a golf cart inside. Truck moaned to get up to speed. That was when we lived in NE Florida.

RE: Florida RED Tide at Ft. De Soto

You won’t miss much if you have to cancel but the heat. As a previous resident of 70 years, it’s going to either be very hot or a hurricane will be expressing itself.

RE: Transmission shudder

It is probably caused by the trucks AFM ability when the truck switches to 4 cylinder mode. Several post concerning GM vehicles with AMF. Many forums reporting transmission shutter and lifter problems. The transmission TSB relating to fluid flush addresses what most report as when accelerating, feels like driving over rumble strips. My 2019 Corvette has had both.

RE: New Ford recalls

PYload sticker and rear axle lubricant. The majority recalls are for a FRS explorer that should not tow much more than a pop up or small single axle TT.

RE: Brakes for 2017 F350 DRW

I’ve owned 3 F350 DRW trucks each tow more than half the miles on the odometer and never serviced brakes before 50-60,000 miles.
