RE: That’s A Bunch Of Grass!

I’m not sure what axle was on the rear of the 2011-2014 F450’s, but it wasn’t the Dana S130. None of the F450 pickups used that axle, it was used on the cab and chassis F450’s though. The 2008-2010, and the 2015-2016 F450 pickups used the Dana S110 and 19.5 tires and wheels. At the beginning of the video, you can clearly see that the front driver side wheel is 8-lug. The ‘11-‘14’s were oddballs that weren’t much different from the F350. :):) According to this guy his 2015 pickup came with an S130, which in the photos look identical to his F550: https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/1410665-f450-rear-axle.html#post15860273 Was there a change / heavy spec pkg that used the S130? 2011 thru 2014 used the Dana 80 in the F450 pickup. That’s what I was thinking, but couldn’t find any info verifying that. I believe the 2011-2014 DRW F350’s used the Dana 80 as well. According to the info in the FTE topic RoyJ linked, the rear axle in my 2016 is an S130, not the S110 like I thought. Mine never had the paper tag that clearly stated the axle type, and the metal tag on it isn’t at all clear about what it is. https://i.imgur.com/i0N6ojkl.jpg But, this casting stamp supposedly identifies it as an S130., and that’s exactly what mine looks like. https://i.imgur.com/xxpv5Kwl.jpg So, maybe it is. :):) Here's the 2014 F450 axle specs page 82: https://madocumentupload.marketingassociates.com/api/Document/GetFile?v1=4309789&v2=053118020732&v3=60&v4=6cabadf32d4dbe252bbb832c22e4b6093172e91037296aa6257947d7&v5=False 2015 axle specs page 82. Looks to be a Dana S111: https://madocumentupload.marketingassociates.com/api/Document/GetFile?v1=4309928&v2=053118025047&v3=60&v4=25ca7d693320181829e2bf0330edfba937d5150a69cb1b7e8c18bc83&v5=False

RE: Should we buy a Ford 5th Wheel Hitch?

Hello, We have an F250 on order and are thinking about a 5th wheel. It should be about 15.5K loaded (16.8K max gross weight). The Ford F250 has the eight foot box and the 5th wheel prep. Would you buy the Ford hitch (18K rating) or another 5th wheel hitch? Thanks, Crespro Crespro, Are you aware of the drivers license requirement for 5th Wheels over 15k GVWR in California? Just asking as most aren't aware, and most dealers don't or won't tell you. Rich

RE: Shore power plug conversion?

This is a good read comparing the twist lock to the Smart Plug. https://marinehowto.com/shore-power-cords-smartplug-vs-1938/ I was on our previous communities harbor committee for 11 or 12 years, and when Smart Plug was first coming to the market they did a presentation for the marina and our committee. It is a great product. During that period we had three or four fires, with one being a major fire. I headed up booming the scene as soon fire was out, which keep the Coast Guard from nationalizing the cleanup, saving the marina and boat owns from really large bills. I got our harbor master to wake the docks with a infrared heat gun looking for over heated shore power connections. I also get him a current clamp meter. If you clamp around the whole marine cable and get a amp reading, then current is returning via the water and not the neutral in the cable, equals hot harbor. Which is not good. Funny you mention the Marina fires. On the website I provided the link to he talks about the fires he's seen. Also goes into detail about the many issues he's found with the shore plugs and the "hot" harbors.
