RE: 12v outlet question

Ok so based on what I think I am learning from you guys and a few others..... I could probably cut 12v plug off inverter, add wire and wire inverter right to the batteries, no 12v outlet. Would this be best way to go? Would this scenario still need a fuse inline? I need simple/easy oh and english! haha! Thx! This is what I would do. Yes you need a fuse as close to the batteries as practical. I'd also use #8 wire.

RE: Hitch re-install question- My mind is going with age!

Looks like the 4 pins are in the hitch just above where it says HUSKY, 2 on each side. Not a bad place to put them, so they don't get lost!

RE: People suck

This kid and all the others doing this should be arrested for profiteering. Karma will get him-HARD. Well he has the attention of the Tennessee Attorney General’s Office, So they may well end up in court. Clicky

RE: Tims Ford SP to St. Louis, via Vogel SP

Vogel SP has both water and electric. No sewer, just a dump station. You should be able to fit in just about every rv site there. Word of caution: some of the COVID 19 patients will be under quarantine/housed in trailers in a GA St. Pk. Don't recall which one so call Vogel and find out if it's them. Your B+ should fit just about any where there. I really like the site at the upper end along the creek. The COVID 19 patients are at Hard Labor Creek. edit to add link

RE: Anyone canceling trips due to Corona virus?

Well we were not doing much different until we found out that the State of Georgia was setting up Hard Labor Creek State Park as a location for the isolation and monitoring of patients who may have been exposed to COVID-19. That just didn't sound like where we wanted to camp, so we changed our reservations to a different park. Hard Labor Creek

RE: Ford 2.7 eco boost

Where did I get my information? How about 27.5K behind the wheel of 2018 F150 with a 2.7 10 speed. All across the southeast. And no I don't pull a trailer with it.Well if you've never pulled a trailer with it, you probably never had it in Tow/Haul mode, and hence, never experienced the engine braking with a load behind it. Second possibility is your truck is defective. The rest of us seem to have real experience with the engine braking. You should get your's looked at so you can get the engine braking you should be getting. It's a company truck so that's why I have it. I have tried it in tow/haul. It is better, but it's a gear or 2 down to start with. But you will never get the braking from "waste gate" turbos that you get from the variable geometry turbo. Good truck, rides good and gets real good fuel mileage. Better than the V8 2011 that it replaced. Obviously the Mountaineer 5th wheel in sig is to heavy for any 150/1500 truck, so that's why we have the DRW Duramax. And after owning 2 DRW diesels my opinion of any 150/1500 trucks towing abilities will be different than those who do tow with them. Guess I just like the other flavor of Kool-Aid.:W

RE: Ford 2.7 eco boost

While the OP wants to use the truck on flat ground, it should be mentioned that the lawnmower engine will not do a good job holding back if a steep downhill is encountered. Eh both my 3.5 so called lawn mower engines hold my 7200lb trailer back very well all through the Appalachians in Pa Wv Va and NC usually only tap the brakes twice on the 6 mile 1700ft decent on 77 through the Blue ridge mountains it holds at 55 with no problem whatsoever...if the 2.7 is like the 3.5 in that aspect I don't see an issue...where I see one is possibly the trucks GVWR and wheelbase for that longer trailer. The 2.7 won't hold the empty truck back. Other that that it's a great truck. I don't see how the 3.5 could do much better. Unless like some of the other Fords, it uses the service brakes.

RE: New truck needs some toys

All I could find 2 years ago were ones for SRW trucks, they just let them run under the rear fenders. At the time I didn't like that idea and just got the GM ones to the back of the cab. Made the wife happy and she wrote the check! Never needed any rear step on the 05 truck. But the B&W release handle works different than the Reese and I now need a step. Got one of those hang on the tire jobs, works but is a PIA.

RE: Chattanooga TN

and none of the locals want you to know about it. I've never been there and have no frame of reference, but I loved this man's description of it. At least for me I just don't care. I've lived here for 50 years and been to most of the tourist stuff once or twice. But it's not like the beach or Disney that you just want to go back to real soon, so most of the locals don't go very often, or ever. Traffic sucks as has been mentioned. And when schools out it's worse, Monday, Thursday, and especially Friday worse still. And it's not going to get better for some time. Can you get off the interstate and be in a bad area? Yes, but Chattanooga isn't alone in that. Come on down, see some fish and ride a train. Hike to a water fall or float down a river. Eat something different(that chain stuff is the same @#$% you get at home). I'd also recommend the Holiday Trav-L park. If you want some Italian food, check out Provino's near the interchange of 24 and 75. Just go to Portofinos at Mack Smith & Ringgold Road. Just as good, and no waiting.

RE: block heater

From what i can tell my 2013 may not have a t stat built in. mine has just the normal 3 prong plug, from pictures i see the stat is built into the plug correct? 2001-2016 do NOT have thermostatic control, 2017+ L5P engines do have thermostats. And are subject to a recall.

RE: Rough Road Towing

:R Man has anyone towed that concrete stretch of I 40 west of the Hopkinsville/Ft Campbell turn off? There are some spots where the dirt is squishing up between the cracks in the crete. Guess I will build up the courage to look at the under cariage of the fiver. :S Aren't Hopkinsville and Ft Campbell off I-24?

RE: 2020 IKE raw and unedited

Ford might use as much or more boost and I have no idea where the Duramax is? 28 PSI manifold gauge pressure. From duramaxhub

RE: Recommended 16 inch LT tires for TT

I'm getting rid of our 15 inch Marathons on our TT and moving to 16in probably LT225/75R16 with new rims. I have people recommend 16 inch Michelin Defenders but those are well over $200 each. I see someone used GR Commercial T/A with good results but someone else suggested asking for ideas. Please don't restart the LT vs ST fight. We did this upgrade on a Jayco 285RLS in 2009. Bought 5 Commercial T/As in 235/85/R16. In 2011 we traded for the Mountaineer, had the tires removed and remounted on it. The spare failed at this time, had never been on the ground. Dealer made it up. In 2013 one of the remaining original tires started to fail. At that time I went with the Bridgestone R250, they ran without issue until last year. When we replaced the BFG's we found the the 1st replacement tire was subject to recall and it was replaced again, and we are using it for a spare, it has never been on the ground. We are now running G637 235/85/R16 Sailuns. Also had 1 215/85/R16 BFG fail do to tread separation on the 05 truck, replaced all 6 with the Bridgestone R500, they were on the truck when it was replaced with the 2018. Michelin XPS Ribs or Bridgestone R238 all steel tires would be best, but not cheap. Commercial T/As, Bridgestone R500, Sailun Terramax HLT, or other non steel tire should give you years of good service.

RE: 2020 Cummins IKE pull

I went back and watched the 4:00 minute mark of that video. I wonder why the gauge reads up to 240 reverse horsepower a while then drops off to 0? It almost seems as though the gauge starts reading at about 37 mph and it pulls it down to 35 mph then quits displaying. Could it be that while the gauge is displaying a number the wheel brakes are being applied. 240 reverse HP would definitely be slowing the truck. 175 reverse HP at the crankshaft should be enough to hold speed on the steepest part of the hill. At the 4:00 mark, there is a red light on just over the "D". It goes out just before the -hp drops off to zero At the 6:01 mark it also shows -240 hp of braking, but no red light over the "D". Could the red light mean service brakes are applied?

RE: seal pulling out?

I just can not for the life of me figure out how to put a dang picture on here... Its shrunken, for sure, just didn't know if that was "normal" versus a sign of a bigger problem. Normal, I've had to replace on both sides. It's just a cover to hide the screws.

RE: Us 27 in Georgia

I like it in south Georgia, from Columbus south. Middle Georgia part isn't to bad, but LaGrange and Carrollton don't have a bypass. Good from I-20 up to Rome. I don't take it north of Rome, take GA-53 over to I-75 at Calhoun. In fact most of the time we will take the interstate to Columbus going south. We just early enough to get thru Atlanta before the rush.
