RE: Moving over to the motorhome forum

Congrats! Please report back to us on how you like it vs. the fiver.

Well, they're put away....

We finally had a break in the seemingly non-stop rain yesterday that we have had here for weeks now after record breaking heat this summer. We took the opportunity to take the fiver and boat to indoor storage. :( As much as I'm happy that they are dry and clean inside, it sure is a depressing thing to do. We didn't get to use them as much as usual this year due to many wildfires, and campgrounds that were constantly full. Oh well, hopefully next year will be better and relaxing COVID restrictions will mean campgrounds will have some space. Come on spring!

RE: Hello

Oh yeah, the F150 has the Pro trailer assist backing feature, which insults my truck driving years, however it is pretty neat. And the little 2.7 Ecoboost does a great job in the F150. I had one half ownership of a 56 Ford Sedan in the USCG back in the 60's and my first wife had a Ford when we got married. I was a Chevy truck guy for years before becoming a RAM guy. Never owned a Japanese truck, however had six Honda cars. https://i.imgur.com/gSQxevcl.jpg Yes, the new F150 is a pretty sweet truck. I had the opportunity to demo a new F150 Powerboost for a weekend in April and it was an absolute rocket! And very well equipped with navigation in XLT trim. Mine is a 4x4 Sport 302A group with Copilot 360, 360 cameras, 12" display with nav, electric locking diff on and on. Beautiful truck! I love the color too. I'm sure you'll be very happy with it. :C

RE: Hello

With all the areas that our Governor closed for Salmon fishing we did manage to catch a few. Wife finally caught her first Salmon. https://i.imgur.com/M1XQDE2l.jpg Very nice!

RE: The Unicorn (F350) and 27-FL have arrived

Congratulations, it looks great! That's not much of a load for that F-350 though! :B

RE: Hello

I have been busy getting this setup the way I want it and getting the first 120 miles on it and first service so I can rip up a little desert. Well and missing my DW of 40 years who stepped off the Planet on July 5th. https://i.imgur.com/f6O0yJhl.jpg I'm happy to see that you're keeping busy, but very sorry to hear about your wife.

RE: 2 cycle oil Dodge 5.9 diesel

2 cycle oil is designed to burn as cleanly as possible. It shouldn’t hurt a diesel in moderation. I’m not sure how it likes being compressed to 35000 psi’s in a common rail fuel system. The manual for my old mechanical diesel Land Cruiser says emergency fuel can be made from 3 parts gasoline to 1 part 30 weight engine oil if necessary. It was built before the internet so that could be danger danger now. Modern as in 07.5 and newer is no bueno!!! Won’t hurt the engine but sure will the downstream emissions systems. Agreed; I wouldn't hesitate on a 5.9L or deleted 6.7L but definitely not on an emissions intact 6.7L like my truck still is.

RE: 2021 Ford Bronco

Fish, Was that not the "twin traction" something or other front end? Iirc it was ok. I was seriously thing about a 96 crew cab from Ford, the 250 was a horrible turning truck with it, vs the 350 with the sofa excellent tight radius, GM ifs was in the middle. 5' or so difference between them. Went with a GM, not smartest choice, but still wish I had it, even with the 6.5TD. Marty I don't recall the names of those Ford suspension but "twin traction" sounds familiar, but the F350 had a solid axle. Back then I had a '87 and '92 Chevy trucks. Come on guys, you that young :B It was twin I beam . Fish , here I thought you were the blue oval guy . Twin I beam was for 2wd models; Twin Traction Beam was for 4wd models. ;)

RE: Tires again

Pretty tough to beat a Sailun S637; I have had mine on my 16k fiver for 6 1/2 years so far with zero issues and they still look great. They also only lose about 3 psi each evenly over winter storage. Yes, they are Chinese tires but they have a great track record and I would buy them again without hesitation.

RE: Looking for ideas on how to Roll up/store 50 amp cord

^^^^^ YEP those are the ends. Thanks for posting the pics. Those are the ends I used as well. I bought the cable off of Ebay.

RE: Nowhere to go

It’s the same around here, if you don’t book months ahead, you aren’t getting in anywhere, plain and simple. We have been thinking of buying an RV lot but they have skyrocketed in price as well with the pandemic. It is about the biggest reason why I’ve seriously contemplated selling the fiver recently.

RE: 2022 HD trucks delivery date

I’ve been offered more than I paid for my truck several times now, but she’s paid for and I’m keeping her. That said, if I could have convinced my better half to sell the fiver for more than we paid for it, which we could have easily done, there’s a good chance that the Ram would have been gone too.:)

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

^Hell, I didn’t even drink until this issue came into my life…. See, should have done something before it got out of hand :B Who said there was a problem? :B

RE: Why no ignitor on RV stove?

Grit, my trailer stove has an ignitor that works with or without shore power. Would you like to buy the trailer? :B You’d have to throw in your awesome stick shift Mega Cab though, cause I don’t have on of them anymore, because the brodozer we got now would have to do the Carolina squat just to hook a 5ver! LOL, I've been trying to convince my better half to sell everything the way the market currently is, but I haven't had much success yet....:)

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Well, with the experience I had when I was shopping for my current truck, I would say that yes color does matter. I was determined that I was going to buy a white truck until I happened to see the truck that I bought. The Maximum Steel color looked absolutely stunning on the Ram dually when I saw it, and well the rest is history! :C

RE: Ram 3500 issue

Have you replaced the rear differential fluid? Mine was starting to act as you describe and the problem disappeared when I replaced the factory fluid with Amsoil Severe Gear. The factory fluid is junk; I would have replaced it when the truck was brand new if I had known that at the time.

RE: 2000 Triple E Commander Drivers Door power window

I would bet the window regulator assembly is shot. You will need to take the panel off to see what is going on, but broken or frayed cables on them are common. Hopefully there will be a part number on it so that you can get a new one if that is what the problem is. They are readily available at Napa, and they aren't difficult to change (I have done 2 of them on my GMC Yukon this year). I believe Triple E is still operating at a reduced capacity so you may be able to contact them to enquire as to what regulator they used back then.
