RE: 2021 Super Duty Camera system

On my previous truck if I wanted a rear view display while traveling down the highway I had to move the gear shift lever into reverse while I selected the camera that I wanted. The 2021 will allow me to select the bed camera while moving forward. I am considering purchasing the AUX camera to mount on the back of my trailer. Will the new Ford camera system allow me to select AUX and continuously display this camera view on the sync screen? Do you know how the TPMS works for your fifth wheel ,I hear thats also an option ,along with a camera. That seems like a nice option, would eliminate having a aftermarket TPMS for the fifth wheel, plus not having to have the extra monitor in the cab. When I ordered my 2020 I ordered the Trailer TPMS option at $400.. I figured it would be integrated directly into the dash settings and I would not have that extra monitor on the dash. When I ordered it, I could not find any info on it but still decided to go forward with it. Once It came in I read the Install directions and it would NOT work with my Trailer wheels.... They are Hispec Series 03 17.5"... The system needs 2 specificities things: #1 - Wheel contour of J... mine was HH #2 - .453" valve stem hole, mine are .625 Sold it unused for $400... no harm-no foul Joe

RE: Raising our 5er

Take the entire set up to Sergio at Morryde and have them put the IS on ! They will make sure your truck and trailer are 100% level before leaving.. AND you will have arguably the best suspension on that fiver....

RE: oh joy...........

Grit - The BEST I have ever found was simple green.... spray it on DRY mat... let sit, mist with water, wet scrub brush, scrub, rinse , repeat if needed.. Worked better than anything I tried.

RE: oh joy...........

Ron, Yes weathertech. I have one that has 30yrs on it....time for a new one. Finally has a hole in it. Marty I've bought a couple sets of Husky floor liners recently and like their quality over Weathertech. IMO, Weathertech used to be the standard for custom fit full coverage floor mats, but not anymore. Look into Huskys before purchasing. I had weathertech in my last truck. Always felt the fit was not great.... this one came with all weather floor mats along with carpet mats.... Not so sure I would spend the money on Weathertech again....

RE: Fuel mileage

about 14-16 mpg with the FW in tow WooooWeee I gotta get me one of those tow trucks. That is what I get running empty at best. :B If you are quoting me Dave, I suggest you re-read what I wrote...Not you I don't think, there was a poster on the first or second page that was claiming 14-16 mpg pulling his 18,000 lb. fifth wheel. That raised a few eyebrows, and much disbelief. :) You referring to me? If so my FW is nowhere near 18k. Not sure where that came from. It's slightly over 11k. While I understand that MPG was never impressive on most trucks, it certainly wasn't on my old Ford, the new 6.7 with the 10 spd tranny is pretty impressive. Just about doubles the mileage on previous versions. I don't fret over MPG, never have, but that's what the computer tells me. I don't calculate it myself, and as another poster pointed out, I hadn't reset it so some of these figures could be skewed with non towing MPG. So there is that. You guys sure do like to get your knickers all in a twist when someone has better MPG than the status quo. New trucks are more powerful and much more efficient. You should try driving one and educate yourself. Until you truly know what you are talking about it's all just drivel. Ask me if I really care what my true MPG is.... I will say no.. As long as I get there safe, that's all I care about.. Sure, I will try for the best MPG's but let's face it.. when towing a larger fiver that's hard to do all the time.

RE: 2020 sales

At the end of 2020, GM was only 3K sales behind Ford who was the sales leader (I am not aware of GM ever being that close to selling the same amount of Diesel trucks as Ford). Some may not like the looks of the latest Gen GM HD's but that doesn't seem to be negatively affecting sales. I think this is what happens when you finally build an HD truck with a spec sheet on par with the other two. Too bad it too so long for GM to connect those dots. The internet has been saying it to GM for years. Wait.... maybe I am missing something?????? Ford Diesel - 161,376 GM Diesel combined - 117,594 I think that is a bit more than 3k :h

RE: Ford Going All Electric in 2030 Too...

I love the mere mention of EV's on here. Certain posters go into mental breakdown and start drooling and soiling their drawers. Thanks for making my day a bit brighter. And I wonder the violent and cold sweat reaction of the humongous diesel and 12-cyl truck owners. Is it triggering their nightmares that the government is out to yank out their trucks from their cold greasy hands? Or, go on manic panic of asking themselves what to do as a substitute to compensate for their mommy issues and small manhood psychological hang ups?:o:E:M:B:@ Dude, take a chill pill... or go unplug :B for a minute... You have some serious anger issues and are taking this EV thing to an all new level of madness

RE: Andersen Hitch

I had long beds early on.. started camping and went to short beds.. Probably early to mid 80's ish.. the last 3 RV's were fivers, all before were TT's. always had the SB till March of 2020.... That's when I went to the dark side with the LB AND the B&W.... After 1 partial season of towing, I can honestly say that I LOVE that combo....

RE: Slide topper question

Yes you can use your toppers in those conditions.... they will be great in keeping possible leaks from forming and debris getting in when done.. You just have to make sure they are free and clear of any ice/snow before closing them up.. If they are black, they will heat in the sun much faster and thaw anything once it gets direct sun.

RE: 2014 Keystone Alpine Hydraulic Jacks 6 Jack System

Need advise. We just sold our motorhome and bought this Alpine so we are completely lost on some of its components. My front jacks are leaking down and I am trying to figure out why. Shows no leaks and the tank shows 1/2 full. Should I add fluid or could there be another issue causing this. Thanks for any advise. DO NOT just add fluid on the basis the tank is low... the trailer MUST be hooked to the trailer( if front jacks are hydraulic ), all slides must be IN and all hydraulic jacks must be raised... At that point you can check the level, because all the residual fluid will be back in the reservoir.. If you look with the slides out and jacks down it will look low as the lines and cylinders are all full of fluid that was in the reservoir.

RE: FLKeys suggestions

I agree with JoeH As you can see, I posted the actual rules for Blue Water ( FACTS ) and nowhere did it state age restrictions. HE was pointing out that the poster was in fact WRONG.. and I thought it was somewhat polite.... I stated the facts, and the poster was in fact wrong.... and he had to be told so not to mislead anyone

RE: Dump Station Etiquette???

Cummins12V98...That is a nice shop attached to your pad! Looks like a big yard, lots of space to enjoy! Kind of makes me wish I didn't live in the city! I do have a little space at our cabin, about 50 miles from home. It is on 2.5 lots. https://i.imgur.com/Fk5wGzHl.jpg It is nothing fancy, but a good get away, and lots of hunting opportunity near by. Upland, waterfowl, and deer. Jerry Jerry, was that an invitation? What a great looking piece of get away !
