RE: Tires? Balance or Alignment

My first thought was similar to time2roll, may not be the tires or wheels at all - check the drivetrain, especially the CV joints.

RE: Owners manuel

Any particular reason? I have found owner's manuals for campers to be useless.

RE: Travel Trailer Towing Recommendations

We were thinking of a Chevy Tahoe, GMC Yukon or Toyota Sequoia, rather than a truck. Thoughts on that for towing? Is there some reason you don't want a truck? Size? Those SUVs are almost as big as a pickup truck. Comfort? Pickup trucks these days are basically luxury mobiles. Have you looked at 4 door or extended cab pickups? Almost always come with higher payload and towing capabilities, you have plenty of room in the cab for stuff or people, and having a pickup bed to carry stuff is great. If you want to really do it up get a cap for the bed of the pickup and you have a big SUV. At least you know what you have to tow, which is better than getting the tow vehicle first and then buying a camper too big for it!

RE: Good Sam Credit Card from Cometity Bank

You don't have a problem with Good Sam. The problem is with the bank that issued the card. If Good Sam chooses to work with this credit card company, then it is a problem with Good Sam. At a minimum it reflects badly on Good Sam, and if Good Sam says they have nothing to do with something with their name on it... then it reflects really badly on them. You would think that a credit card company dealing with RV'rs would have some understanding of working with people traveling all over the USA.

RE: Email Issues - Just looking for ideas..

If the spam seems to be originating from a "legitimate" email, have you contacted that person to let them know? I have Yahoo email, I just click the obvious spam emails as "spam" and Yahoo seems to stop any further emails from that address. I do try to make sure it is not a hacked email from someone I know, in case some legitimate emails might be mixed in. As far as I know Yahoo won't block a domain like, plus I wouldn't want it to. I don't think you want to block an entire domain, that would block way too much.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

It seems like it is fixed! whooho! Whatever the reprogram is that the dealer did, seems, so far, to have fixed the issue of the random trailer alarms (and door alarm). If anyone runs into this issue, it is fixable by reprogramming the trucks computer. On a surprising note, it cost me nothing - yea, it is a new truck, but I was waiting for an "office copay" or something like that. AND!! They didn't try to sell me on getting an oil change, tire rotation, or fresh blinker fluid! Maybe the service department (which in my town has a very poor reputation for trying to "upsell" stuff) is trying to actually get better!

RE: hundreds of CD's many in original packaging, mostly country

I was just talking to a retired friend who helps at the library. They have a used book sale, and accept used books from people for the sale. In the recent past they tried accepting and selling used CDs but literally no one wanted them. He took them all to the dump. Kind of a shame, but it is what it is.

RE: Can Tow providers mount new tire to wheel ?

I don't know about "most", but the towing companies around me all seem to have tire mounting equipment back at their shop. I have not heard or seen them actually mounting a tire on a wheel / rim on the side of a road for smaller vehicles. "big rig" towing and service companies can usually mount a tire on a wheel, and then mount it on a trailer or truck, out in the field. Bringing a spare tire, not mounted on a rim, is an idea, but... it really is easier to carry a spare on its own rim. When you say weight issues, is that because your camper is over weight, or you have trouble moving / carrying a mounted spare yourself? I know as I have gotten more "seasoned" in age I have learned to use crowbars and blocks of wood to help lift spare tires onto a vehicle.

RE: hundreds of CD's many in original packaging, mostly country

Supposedly LPs have had a bit of a "comeback", but not CDs. Try giving them away on social media. Try Goodwill (we loved those stores when younger with little kids!). Just sort of ask around. CDs have gone the way of VHS tapes and cassettes. I feel old saying that!

RE: Family Reunion 2022

Grilled cheese and bacon sandwiches. Use something different like swiss or cheddar cheese, add some smoked ham, and thick slices of fancy bread.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

lol, this has gotten just stupid. I came home, unhitched the trailer, then (as I learned) I moved the truck away from the trailer. I get out and leave the key fob in the center console as I usually do on my property (then I use the door keypad to get in). This time, though, I had some stuff in the passenger seat so I left the truck unlocked and walked around to get it. When I opened the passenger side door........ the alarm went off. I simply opened the passenger side door, when all the doors (and tailgate, that is another issue) were unlocked, and the keyfob was inside the truck. I pushed the "panic" button on the keyfob to shut off the alarm. I sent an email to my dealer last week, but haven't heard back. Not really surprised, they always want you to call them. At this point, I just want ALL the "alarms" shut off on the truck!

RE: first commercially available all electric RV

I didn't watch the video, but I am also wondering why they don't use propane? Arguably, my TT right now is "electric", but with propane appliances. Which seems to work very well and obviously saves the battery power. It would be nice to have a massive battery like that for extended weekends without hookup. Hey, and I can use my Honda EU to recharge it!

RE: phone-based GPS

My 2021 F150 has built in navigation with a multi function screen in the middle of the dashboard, but it really wasn't very good and it required a yearly fee to continue using it. Considering Google Maps is free and works much better, I see no need to pay a yearly fee for the Ford maps system. I know people who have connected their cell phone to the dashboard screen (like was posted earlier) and can use whatever they want. I have not done that, just use Google maps on my phone as I've done in the past. And... review the route, and pay attention to where I'm going. And, of course, if and when I have a problem with my phone or dashboard screen, I ask my kids to help me! lol!

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

TSB number is 22-2122. Vehicles built before Feb 22/22. False alarm due do various software parameters in Trailer Module. Update is for Trailer Module, Driver Door Module and Passenger Door Module. Thank you! It is dated April 4, 2022, so it is pretty recent. I will contact my dealer.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

There is a bulletin on this. There is a software update to resolve the false alarm activation Someone earlier posted about that, but the link didn't work and I haven't heard from him. Do you have any information about it? Links? The only other thing I could find was that Ford knows about it, sent a bulletin to dealers about it, and are still working on the problem.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

Yeah but if taking the key fob with you keeps the alarm from going off, it's not random. That is a "work around" that I found for me, at least last week. I'll see what happens this week. I am posting what I found in other forums to try to help others having this issue. I would prefer not to have to find work arounds on my own, I'd rather the option to simply shut it off.

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

Seems I've found at least a temporary solution. I work outside, landscaping, so I don't carry a phone or keys with me while working - don't want to lose them. I leave the keys in the truck, usually under the seat or in the center console, and lock the cab when working. I use the keypad on the door to unlock the truck. Last week I tried carrying the key fob with me when I walked away from the truck... and no alarm! So, at least in the last week, the trailer alarm doesn't come on if you remove the key fob from the truck. Weird. Now I am going to see if the dealership can just shut off all the alarms related to trailers. Not weird. Virtually nobody leaves the keys in their vehicle anymore. That's just asking for it to be stolen, even with the doors locked. First thing car thieves look for after they break in is a set of keys in a common location like under the seat or in the center console. Yours is an unusual, rare situation. Your work situation is presumably fairly secure and allows you to leave the keys in the truck, even locked. Ford just didn't anticipate that in their logic. They assume you left the keys in the truck by mistake and set the alarm off to let you know. I guess me leaving my keys in the truck is rare, but this alarm system seems to be far from rare and it seems to be random how it gets set off. What I want is a simple way to shut the trailer alarms off. (or, they fix it so it doesn't activate randomly!)

RE: 2021 F150 trailer disconnect alarm issues

Seems that Ford knows about it and is trying to do something. This is part of a post on another F150 forum. There is a lot of discussing (and cussing) about this alarm issue in many forums: " Anybody have any updates on this? I just took my 7/21 KC built truck on a week long trip towing a 5x8 U Haul trailer. The only way I could avoid a false trailer alarm was to disconnect the 4 wire connector each time we locked up for the night. I don't pull a trailer very often but if there's now a fix, I'll have the dealer take care of it next time it's in the shop. -- No update yet as far as i know. Dealer is supposed to let me know when the fix is finally available. Arrival keeps getting pushed back...."
