RE: New to RVs.....A Few Newbie Questions

The Hershey show is a great place to look, you will get to see a bunch of different floor plans and will be able to get a idea of what you want. Be aware that some of the dealers there are pretty high pressure on trying to get you to buy. The truck I would suggest getting a diesel they are just a much better towing experience, after towing with my diesel I will never go back to gas. Get the 350-3500 series and depending on the trailer you get you may need a DRW. I prefer the blue oval brand but any of the big 3 will serve you well.

RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

Fords 3.31 vs 3.55 gears with the torqshift 10 speed @ 60 mph on 33" tires shows 7th gear = 164 rpm difference 8th gear = 125 " " ". 9th gear = 99 " "". 10th = 93 " "" I doubt the 6.7 diesels big HP/torque will notice much difference. Now the 7.3 gazzer may work a bit better with the 3.55 gears.. This is correct, either ratio will work great with the 6.7. You will not notice a 100-200 rpm difference. Sure on paper the 3.55 will pull slightly better, but seat of the pants while driving they will feel the same.

RE: Ford super duty 3.31 rear end. Will it be a big mistake. ?

^^^^At 25000 lbs and on 7% grade a 475 hp truck will pull down to about 58 mph. The difference in 3.31 gears vs 3.55 gears is this: If the truck with 3.55 gears and 34” tires will be running at 2600 rpm in 6th gear it can put out 475 hp. The truck with 3.31 gears and 34” tires will be running at 2800 rpm in 5th gear at about 56.4 mph and it will be putting out about 462 hp. But if the hill gets a little steeper the 3.31 ratio equipped truck gains hp as it slows down where as the 3.55 equipped truck will loose power as it slows. So really both gear ratios will perform extremely well with loads under about 18000 lbs. once you get into dually territory 3.31s are no longer as desirable nor are they available. 4X4ord nailed it either ratio will work great.I doubt you would notice much difference between the two when driving.

RE: Zero-G water hoses

I have a zero g hose and a flexzilla I like them both and they both work much better than the cheap white hoses. My zero g hose is the gray color, the only issue I have with it is at times when it is laying on the ground in the grass it can look very much like a snake.

RE: Blue DEF

Here’s a helpful item if you typically use the boxes or jugs of DEF. this is a Ford part, and you can order it on Amazon for about $10. It fits on any jug or box of DEF, and I *believe* the DEF fill ports on vehicles are all the same, so the o-ring on the dispensing end of the spout will make a seal when it’s pushed down into it. You can then turn the DEF jug upside down if you want and there will be no leaks. The DEF tank will fill until it’s full, and nothing will spill out. It’s a handy item. https://i.imgur.com/UT864upl.jpg :):) This a great tool it works well.There are no leaks and it stops when full. Remember to not overfill your DEF tank if you are in freezing temps, DEF will freeze.
