RE: Heading to the Rockies for 5 or 6 weeks.

The minute my F150 is picking up speed while coasting (in tow/haul mode) and I touch the brakes, the tranny downshift (sometimes more than 1 gear) and engine braking comes in.

RE: Cant hook up a whole house generator

No Response - I'm guessing it didn't go to well.

RE: Cedar Point and Michigan

I'll toss this out there, how about the Port Huron or Thumb area of Michigan and return via Canada and the bridge at Port Huron? You'll need passports or an enhanced drivers license. Even better would be going to the UP for several days and crossing at the Soo.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

"But if we get an agreement,it will be to our benefit. You would think the tax cuts and cuts in regulations, they would offset the cost of the tarrifs. With the economy roaring along like it is, these industries will get through it." "if" we get an agreement. Nothing says we will or that it would benefit us at all. Tax cuts and reg cuts have not and will not help. The economy is going in trillion dollar debt and is up to 8 1/2 T. The premise of this page was RV's and of course none of the current mess is going to help us. Peoples wages are barely moving up while the cost for us to have fun is rising fast as are our PU trucks. People work hard to get to retirement (ME) and with our very fixed incomes the price for RVing keeps going up. Someone needs to come up with a great unit at 20% less not more!You got a diesel, a 2018 33' trailer, two high end bicycles and a Honda genny and you're pontificating about being on a fixed income - give me a break.

RE: Is a travel trailer with a slide out a good idea for me?

At 18-22 feet, 4 to 6 people, you're going to want a slide out. I've had trailers with slide outs for about 15 years, I've never had a problem with the slide out (knock on wood). In my opinion, you're not any more likely to have problems with the slide out then you are with any other part of the trailer.

RE: 5 liter SUVs and truck capability.

If you want a Ford, go with the 3.5 ecoboost and the 10 speed transmission.

RE: Honda 2200i and 15k AC

microair rocks the world I went with Westinghouse 2500 to gain a little bit more overhead in the same small package.I'd put $500 into a better generator that has lots of uses around the house before I'd spend $350 on a one trick pony that can do nothing else. YOMV.

RE: Tariffs trip up the all-American RV industry

it sure does. i suspect that the vast majority of millionaires (folks with a net worth of $1m or more) did not use borrowed money to increase wealth. TroubledWaters is ignoring or discounting risk...risk of losing an income stream and not being able to address debt. i know, can't happen/won't happen. i've been fired twice from jobs i thought were secure. being debt free made those situations much less stressful and manageable. in both cases i was able to secure better jobs at higher salaries.If I can afford to pay cash, I can afford to borrow against that cash and leave my money invested at higher rates.

RE: private land camping questions, cell booster suggestions

Sounds like the mad neighbors just are dark holes at the end of an intestine.That is an interesting conclusion; given that you haven't heard the neighbors side of the story.

RE: Running your propane Refrigerators while fueling?

To each his own, but it seems like common sense to me.wouldn't common sense indicate you also shouldn't drive to your destination, which is hundreds of times more dangerous then keeping the propane on? Which just goes to say you have selective common sense, just like the rest of us; some dangers you accept and some you choose to ignore.

RE: New Trailer Thoughts

From what I see that is a 26' +/- box and 29' overall length. I don't know about Ontario Provincial Parks but generally speaking that should be very good length for almost any park.

RE: Slide problems (electrical)

Without seeing a wiring diagram it is nearly impossible to begin to offer worth-your- time troubleshooting advice. I can offer a lot of shots in the dark Chase your tail advice. Best I can offer is start by passing sections of wire to isolate the issue. But when your done doing that and still not solved the problem, you've just spent 10 hours to accomplish zilch and still need someone to look at the wiring diagram and troubleshoot the issue.

RE: Help what tongue weight F150

If I remember correctly, to get max tow and max payload F150 it required Eco boost and a few other knick nacks, pushes the price of that combination OVER what I paid for my XLT Gas F250 and I get over 900 lbs more payload to boot. A $60K F150 with 2500 lbs capacity OR a $43K F250 with 3400 lbs capacity.. No brainer for me, the F250 wins every time :B Not having to count potato chips every time I want to tow is priceless..You don't remember correctly, $60K is total bullsheet. It did that comparison in March, price difference is about $2K any with incentives I paid way less than your $45K.

RE: 1/2 Ton Towable 5th Wheel

Yes, the motor can put out those numbers but doing so really limits the duty rating.That must be why you see so many reports of dead ecoboosts everywhere - Oh Wait - I haven't seen any such reports - must be a bunch of malarky.

RE: 1/2 Ton Towable 5th Wheel

So you're saying I can't do what I've been doing for the past 5 years? I'm shocked! Should I leave the FW at the beach and drive home without it? Rush to the dealer and pick up a 1 ton?No one here can answer that question, only you can. But I'll give you my assesment. A reasonable estimate would be that 5th wheel has 1600 lbs ( give or take) of pin weight. If everything else in the truck weighs less than 400 lbs, per manufacturer's ratings you're good to go. If all in you're over your payload rating, it's up to you to decide if you're safe or not. In any event, it all won't crash an burn the minute you turn the key. Ulitimately, time could take a toll though.

RE: Help what tongue weight F150

Your truck doesn't have 5500 lbs of payload. You need a good understanding of all the variables effecting towing, the terms used, and what they mean. Start here Clicky

RE: Entry level trailer what qualifies.

"Entry Level" = used by some people as a way to talk down to other people.
