RE: Happijac issue

My camper came with two remotes. One wired and the other wireless. Is it possible you have a second remote?

RE: Seven States to Ban the Sale of Gas Powered Cars in 2035

Change is never a good thing until it becomes a good thing. Then everyone that fought against it claims to have been for it all along.

RE: RVs swept into river in CA

No one was injured which is good news. Sounds like they were trying to get them all moved so it wasn't a surprise to anyone at the scene.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

I feel more tires is better, also bigger is better. Its why I went from a F350 Single to a F450 Dually and now a 5500. F450 was super stable, 5500 takes it to a whole new level.

RE: Ford's issues

Its the dealerships that really cast a shadow on manufacturers. Charging huge markups just because they could and when was the last time you bought a car at a dealership. It takes hours. Sure ford has had its share of issues, but so does everyone else.

RE: EV alternative for light/medium duty trucks

Trucks have become really expensive and unfortunatly I don't think we have any EV truck that can replace current ICEs for most cases. Yet

RE: Good Sam or KOA

I tend to take a KOA over others when traveling. The worst is often still decent for overnight stops and often priced accordingly. If I am staying longer than a day, I will shop around for a well regarded park. I have only found a few that would not honor Good Sam. And those that do rarely want to see any proof I am actually a member.

RE: Washer issue driving me nuts

If the unit does not completely dry out after use and you close it up, it can start to get a moldy smell. We went through that on a front load washer. Now we leave it open for a day and no more moldy smells.

RE: Ram Reduces Max Tow Ratings

So is Ram going to explain this or will it just be wild speculation by everyone else?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I spent a week in the snow in my TC sitting on the ground. Truck was getting some work done. Bought a Vornado electric heater and it performed quite well. Nearly silent compared to the turbo fan the unit uses for circulating air under around the holding tanks. I wired up a 140mm computer fan on the outlet side that constantly circulated air down below. Coldest day was in the teens with gusty wind. Had to supplement with propane heat a couple of times, but I barley used any propane in 10 days on the road.

RE: 1st night camping in our yard, 2023.01.24

We always make lists. After the first shake down run we had a number of items that we deemed worthy of addition. Now a decade later its all second nature. We keep our RV stocked with everything needed. Just stock the fridge and hit the road.

RE: Dometic ceiling fan inoperable

If you pull the surround trim from the fan, you can likely find the wires that feed it. Look for where the wires are tied and make sure they are connected, most crimp connectors or wire nuts can be probed with a meter to check voltage.

RE: F450 Lariat Ultimate package?

My 2019 F450 was a capable platform, but the aluminum bed is a weak spot. Not a show stopper but if your planning on a heavy camper, that bed will show a few bent or sagging spots if you ever drive on crappy roads with lots of transitions. I loved my F450 as a stable well mannered hauler. Now that I have a Ram 5500, its very stable and carries the load even better. Both had stiff tires and suspension that would let you know every big bump you hit. I pay quite a bit more for the 5500 insurance. My F450 was weighing 15600 at the last weight. Full water and loaded for travel. Well over legal. My 5500 weighed 16700. 2800 lbs below payload. The bed is longer and supports more of the camper. Lots more storage both below and above the bed is possible. That alone makes it a very positive choice for me. Now add new suspension and its even better.

RE: 2023 F550 Order Options

I feel the F450 had a bit tighter turning radius since it has a slightly shorter wheelbase. I am not disappointed with the Ram yet but honestly I have only done one trip. Over the next few weeks I will get more time to gain more experience. Since I bought it, it has pretty much sat as I had other projects to focus on.

RE: 2023 F550 Order Options

No I will be keeping my Ram 5500. Too much invested in it. My only real complaint with it is it does not track as well as my F450. I will be taking it in for an alignment soon and that should help. I was just curious if Ford finally will have more features for F550's. Being a long time Ford guy switching to Ram has been a bit weird. Maybe in 5 years or so I might consider switching back. But more likely I will be used to the Ram and happy with it.

2023 F550 Order Options

Ford has still not updated the website for online configuration. I see some have been able to order. My question is will trim levels above mid Lariat be available now?

RE: 550 / 5500 insurance???

Interesting I started with USAA who covered my F450. They did the progressive quote but it was several hundred more than State Farm. It may vary from state to state.

RE: 550 / 5500 insurance???

I just went through that with my 2022 Ram 5500. My state registered it as a non commercial vehicle but USAA and State Farm would only cover it as a commercial truck since it had a flat bed. State farm was quite a bit cheaper but well over twice what I was paying for my F450. Hope this helps some. I went with a CM SK bed and have been eyeing Stable Campers boxes as well. So far I really like the added storage.
