RE: Fantastic Fan fuse problem.

Sounds like something is wrong with it. They're cheap and plentiful at eBay: Linky

RE: Closure Threads

Please don't lump everything into one thread. Makes it very hard to keep up with and impossible for people to stay on subject (since there are so many). JMHO. Scott

RE: It's time for a replacement truck

No way I would go with a 5.7 Hemi for something that heavy and if you go 6.4L, don't get anything older than a 2016 unless the owner can prove that Ram has replaced the lifters with the improved version.

RE: Combined home computers reach exaflop levels

Never, ever turn over control of your computer. Never. Besides, thousands of common home computers are nothing compared to super computers.

RE: The perfect RV campground

Because everyone seems to have a different idea of what makes a great CG, I suggest you look at some of the highest rated resorts and see what the constants are. Places like 7 feathers in Oregon are a good start and while some will probably berate them for some reason, they're metrics dont lie.

RE: The perfect RV campground

Just an observation but that list seems like it was made up by someone without any experience in RVing. Frankly, the above poster summed it up nicely.

RE: Special request for all X-pats and visitors

Same goes for the US. Even though we can only do take-out now, I still give them a good tip.

RE: 2011 Ram HD 3500 DRW Cummins 68RFE 523k miles!

98 dodge we had with very poor brakes. solo or towing didn't know which direction the truck was going left or right when stopping. Might just be ours. chevman True! But there things that can be done like removing the proportioning valve for the rear brakes along with changing to 1 1/8" or 1 1/4" rear GM wheel cylinders. Forget what size. Or change to EGR rear disk kit as I did on my 98 after doing the other options. You really don't want to just increase the size of wheel cylinders. I know this is a common mod and shops suggest it all the time but you will actually get worse braking if that's all you do. If you made this mod and did get better brakes, it was because you changed out the factory pads (Dodge pads get less effective over time) or it was just because it got a good bleeding. I just know what I did made a difference along with many on the TDR at the time. The Proportioning valve removal for sure did the most. Was not an issue with the rear antilock braking. I'm sure it was the other things that effected them. The TDR was once a good resource. Not anymore. Lots of bad info and errogance, especially on "Johns" part (Allen's not much better). After nearly 18 years on there, I've completley written it off. It saddens me to say that but it's a toilet to me now. Using a larger wheel cyl. without any change to the MC results in more power but a shorter throw - so it doesn't push on the shoes as much. It takes more fluid to move that bigger cylinder the same distance so a bigger MC is required to make up for it. It's possible the prop valve missing made up for it since you're allowing more fluid to flow back there without it. Interesting... This stuff is so freakin complicated that even the manufacurers will make small changes to a given system with new model years. So even they can't always get it right the first time.

RE: Fantastic just quiet!

You need to use a volt meter and follow the power. If the motor is bad, you can get a replacement but it wont be as quiet as the original.

RE: Brake Lights

Is there power at that 20A fuse when you check with a meter?

RE: 7345 charger mod

There's really no comparison. The Parallax is just out-classed by the newer technology.

RE: hydraulic cylinders

If a ram's chromed shaft is exposed Mopar SYNTHETIC automatic transmission fluid is positively superb as a rust inhibitor that will not endanger seals. AKA, ATF +4. :)

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

:C I did a project like that years ago. We had a blast in that camper and hauled it all over the western side of the country. We still talk about how nice it was inside with its wood paneling. It was warm feeling, homey and I wish we could still get them that way. Good luck and we look forward to seeing your progress. Scott

RE: Will fridge run off tow vehicle on batts on TT?

Driving with propane lines open is not legal always, but many have done this since the beginning of RVing. Yes, with the exception of a few tunnels, etc, please provide a link to support this statement. X2. It is totally legal except as indicated by AJ.

RE: Mysterious leak

Grey is Cpvc and you can either use the same material fittings or it can be joined to PVC fittings using "Weld*on" orange label 724 adhesive.

RE: Mysterious leak

I've fixed leaks in plumbing by just using the appropriate PVC or ABS cements. If it's a crack, fill it with the glue and then apply a couple more layers. For a stronger fix, cut a suitable coupling long-ways and apply it as a patch.

RE: Will fridge run off tow vehicle on batts on TT?

When we had 4 at home kids, and a tight budget, we traveled with a popup with a 12/120 volt refrigerator. I wired a 12 volt line from the car to the refrigerator and ran the fridge while driving. As long as I unplugged it when we stopped, It worked well for 5 two week vacations. If I forgot to unplug when we stopped, the fridge would kill the car battery. I did not know about battery isolators at the time. I would check with a volt meter to see if the alternator can keep up with demand while running the engine and with the fridge running. My Caprice Classic had a high output alternator and it kept up. Good point, the OP's Ford disconnects the charge circuit/battery when the ign is off.
