RE: Ram 2500 only carries 2300 lbs.

I think you are reading it wrong, front still lower than rear, but if rear sags 2” then head lights points op higher and blinds oncoming drivers.

RE: Why is 5th wheel standard vs Gooseneck?

Ever wondered why they are called FWs and not goosenecks.

RE: Light Japanese Trucks used as Tow Vehicles here

The main problem here in Australia is that the F Trucks etcetera has to be converted here at a cost of $40000 on top of transportation and duty, makes them $150000+ and can only go by manufacturers ratings, so 250 only about 1000kg my F350 1560kg payload where the small trucks like Iveco Canter etcetera are 2-3000kg payload and half the price. Frank.

RE: Powering a electric winch

Thanks Josh yes I know that Mex knows his stuff with electric, and he suggested to upgrade the negative cables and run 00 to the rear, and that is what I intend to do and also run a oo cable between the positives with a 300A fuse at each battery before cutout switch to winch. Frank.

RE: Powering a electric winch

I am setting op winch so can be used front and rear. Has been advised to use 00 cable to run to rear of truck, so either I run to cables +and- or I use chassis to run from rear to front and only run + to rear and short cable from chassis, I have also been told to upgrade. the - to chassis of both batteries, I also planned on connecting the 2 + together with a oo cable, only plan on connecting winch to one battery true the 500A breaker supplied with the winch. By the way my truck is a 2015 Frank.

RE: Powering a electric winch

Getting ready to do the wiring as hoping to have winch next week. My Ford workshop recommended that I only run the 02 active to rear and use chassis as ground , while also adding larger ground from each battery to chassis, what do you think. Thanks Frank.

RE: Powering a electric winch

Ok did a bit of research re op grating wire on som older F trucks, not really clued on electric, when said to op grade earth what exactly should be done, heavier cable from batteries to frame ? Or batteries to alternator? Or both. What size cable, I read that people use one size smaller than positive? Why. If running 2/0 to winch I am also considering running a extra 2/0 cable between batteries positives, god idea or not, and also do I want to include fuses on cable, if so what size considering the load could be op to 430A and I think cable rating about 500A? Thanks Frank.

Powering a electric winch

My 2015 F350 diesel comes with 2 batteries, not sure how they are connected, so to connect winch to only 1 or run cable to both? Max draw about 400A.What says the gurus. Frank.
