RE: 2022 F350 on order

https://i.imgur.com/2Q9O1Rwl.jpg I have the sync 3 and do not like the screen at night, they need a dimmer or auto dim with the headlights. Our 2018, Sync 3 dims when the lights are on and we sometimes turn it further down by rotating the dash dimmer .

RE: Taking I-10 to Jacksonville FL Looking for a layover spot

Hanna is at the Beach and north east of your destination. There is a Walmart right on I-10 at SR228, exit #336, Macclenny, Florida 8 miles west of Jacksonville City Limit. Walmart sounds perfect - I take they allow an overnight stop? I know some can't or don't. It’s our fuel stop. Haven’t stayed there myself but have seen MH and TT’s with tow vehicle disconnected many times.

RE: Also replacement axle

You can buy axles almost everywhere even through Etrailer. All you need is the axle capacity and a few measurements. “Hub face and spring center.”

RE: Operational problems with new diesel pickups

My 2018 truck has 28767 miles on it. It has pulled our Cardinal 3350 26543 miles. We’ve been all over the Appalachian chain and back and forth to Florida too many times to count. The DEF consumption is higher when towing but never a mechanical problem. Change the oil every 6,000 miles.

RE: Bryson City NC to Knoxville TN

Take 74 from Bryson City through Murphy to Cleveland and I-75 or go back east of Waynesville to I-40.

RE: Florida State Park camping tag good at other FL state parks?

Last year and the year before, we were staying at Top Sail SP but would drive over to Grayton Beach SP to swim. We were Florida residents at the time and was never charged a second entry fee.

RE: Ford 2022 Super Duty

Wish they would get rid of that column shifter putting it in the console like the 150 and use that column space for a paddle shifter or other stalk accessories..

RE: Will it be difficult to find a reliable 5er on a 20K budget

Heck yeah, I think the $5 gas that is coming will change the market. $5 a gallon diesel, actually $5.15 in New York back in 2008 didn’t slow us down and the roads were full of RV’s.

RE: Blue Ridge Parkway - Early April

Tunnel heights are measured at the fog line so one direction could be more or less clearance than the other.

RE: 60 gallon gas tank

Maybe I'm wring but I thought the feds do not allow in the bed gasoline tanks, diesel only. Gas is too flammable. "Gravity flow gasoline transfer tanks are not allowed under DOT regulations. They have to have turnover valves and be a pump/transfer system. ... Yes, we manufacture our aluminum refueling tanks to meet and exceed the requirements for gasoline, kerosene, methanol, and diesel" OP, says he has a diesel.

RE: Best Cell Phone App

While it sounds good to use your phone and an app to navigate but you will be happier with a Garmin for RVs. Garmin is the best of a so so bunch. Yes you will have an additional piece of hardware but money well spent. My new Garmin Is junk and not any better than Waze.

RE: Best Cell Phone App

Despite some of the RV specific nav apps, I still prefer WAZE. I like that fact that updates are real time from other users. x2

RE: New TV

Look for an optical output. MANY newer TVs do not have a "optical" output, in fact many do not have ANY output what so ever, no physical jack, no wireless BT, not even a headphone jack.. In fact I have TWO 50" flat screen TVs that were given to me that fall into to no output group.. OP has never come back to the thread with a model number which would be far more helpful than a bunch of random guesses. I suspect that is the reason they were gifts.

RE: Compring manufacturer quality

Thor now is the owner of Tiffin. I look for a solid fiberglass shower and surround with glass door, not a plastic 2 piece one. Look for appliances, furniture and TVs name brand, not LCI **** Furrion and Summit. Hydraulic slides and leveling jacks, not electric slides.

RE: Short Term Freezing Weather Tips?

If you will have full hookups or where you can discharge grey water, let the kitchen faucet run a small stream which will keep the water and drainline from freezing. We’ve done that many times down to 14 degrees. An electric heater will assist the furnace keeping the belly area warm or just put a 40 watt light in the belly. Should be fine down to high 20’s.
