RE: My very own 'broken bumper' story...why didn't I listen?

I had my bike rack mounted to the bumper with a clamp on receiver. However I also used a set bolt to take out the play in the Exocet opening, and also had it ratchet strapped to the rear wall with angle steel behind the bunks for support. In 13 years and many thousands of miles the rack never bounced or swayed. I had a rear view camera that I could keep an eye on them. I wouldn’t do it unless the rack was tight with the trailer and properly supported!

RE: Tow Haul Mode

Wish I had the 5 or 6 speed in my 02 Excursion with the V-10. Our 12 F53 chassis has the V-10'5 speed combo and tow/haul is amazing! The shift strategy could use some changing (which 5 star addresses) but other than that I love it. Every time I start it I engage it. Wish there was a way to have it always defaulted to on. I'll be getting a tune from 5 star next year and will check to see if it addresses the tow/Haul default setting.

RE: RV navigation (Device or app)

I use google maps, has worked great so far. I may try the Co Pilot app next year. You can set it up with your height p, width and length.

RE: Bought a 2000 Airstream Land Yacht

It sounds like you got a hell of a deal! Good for you guys. I'm sure the current owner is happy to sell it to someone who will take just as good care of it.

RE: Air bags on a Class A gasser

A bolt on air spring (bag) will only make the coach ride harsher as it increases the spring rate. To truly get a steel spring MH to ride smooth you would need to do a complete air suspicion system. That is remove the steel spring, bolt in a new suspension system with the air bags, this will cost around $13000! But it will ride amazing!

RE: and just like that...*poof*....gone

From the title, I thought this was going to be a rant about a thread that a Mod deleted... :B Looks to be done in the same manner.....no explanation as to why it disappeared! :@

RE: Strange advice

Driving a huge trailer too fast on cheap Chinese tires of unknown age, carrying unknown weight, what could possibly go wrong? The OP states that they are running "GY Marathon tires." Where do you get "cheap Chinese tires?" Rob Because they are low priced and made in China. :S Ask anyone that has run Marathons! I used to run Carlisles, never a blowout in. 14 years. And I towed at 70+mph. As has been stated, the 65mph rating is dated and is now used as a blanket comment on any tire blowout thread.

RE: Blackstone 22" griddle for $99 at Walmart!!

I have the 17 inch blackstone.  It's fine, but it only has 1 burner.There is a guy online who works for blackstone and makes cooking videos. He makes it clear that he is only making the videos out of the love for cooking. Its not to sell blackstone griddles. Claims he has seasoned 100 blackstones in his time. I watched his video seasoning a 17" and it struggled to get hot in the corners. He gave the tip to literally pick the griddle up and rotate it 180 degrees. Not sure how that changes anything considering their H shaped flame pattern. Isnt the flame pattern symmetrical? Whatever the case that video convinced me to avoid the 17". Three days ago i could have easily spent $130 for a 17" off amazon. So glad i didnt. The 2 burner 22" is where is at for us campers is my opinion. Exactly! I have the 17" and it sucks! Even though it has 2 burners it only has 1 control knob. And yes he corners don't get hot. My buddy has the 22" and it is a completely different cooking experience. Individual heat zones, more complete cooking area, and his came with the legs and lid. Eventually I will get the 22". The 17" isn't even a good cheap model. I would tell everyone to avoid it! I wouldn't say a 17" sucks on a average warm day it gets plenty hot enough,but on a cold morning or cool windy day it can struggle. Being from the windy city I can see where you feel it sucks. But even though I sold my 17" model it worked well for the most part. Granted the 22" does work better but for $70-$90 the 17" is a decent buy. Ive used it here in northern IL, northern WI, FL, out west, in the mountains. hot or cold weather, doesn't matter the heating area is limited and the edges get warm. to those that say you cant make good burgers or steaks on a flattop, yes that is true, but you cant make bacon, pancakes/French toast and hash browns on a charcoal grille either! and trying to make a philly cheese steak or panini on a grille doesn't work well either. a flattop has a great spot for outdoor cooking, you just have to choose what you cook on wisely!

RE: Class A motorhomes with a Ford V10 Chassis

Never an issue. Only problem on early ines were plugs spitting and exhaust manifold bolts breaking. Other than that it is one of he few engines that won't leave you stranded.

RE: Battery Disconnect... What does it disconnect??

Yes, the converter powers up the system even with battery disconnected. I'll add that this is normally true, but not always. I had a 5th wheel that HAD to have a battery installed and connected for the converter to work. Without the battery (or with the battery disconnected), and while plugged in to shore power, no 12v anywhere but 120v was fine. Didn't make any sense to me, but it was true. I'm not certain it was like that from the factory or if a previous owner did some re-wiring. Actually that makes more sense as you are less likely to stress/overload the converter as the battery will smooth out up any heavy loads. actually you guys are correct. the converter doesn't put out enough amps on its own to run a slide or power tongue jack. only the inside lights. the system nneds a battery to function properly.

RE: Anyone ? GM 3.0 diesel

I would stay far away from any small diesel. They are problematic and not worth the aggravation. This coming from a diesel tech.

RE: Dinghy Towing 2008 Ford Edge FWD

We tow a 2013 Explorer 4WD. No issues. Easy to tow, just shift to N. no need to disconnect a battery.

RE: FL questions

LOL! Am I the only “Karen” (Kevin) worried about alligators if you go kayaking! Keep in mind this is coming from a Midwestern person of 50 years. Otherwise it sounds like a great trip!

RE: Check this if you've bought a used RV recently

Ok people. His LP alarm is not bad. He is saying his smoke detector never had a battery in it. He thought the beep was from the the smoke detector, but without a battery it couldn't beep. Good find, glad you found it before it's too late!

RE: Is it a battery and what I think is for?

Never heard of a dedicated battery to start the generator. Maybe it is a second house battery?

RE: Large Shut-Off

Pics are the only way to help. Unless someone has the same year and model.
