RE: Insurance and RAM 5500

Try a company named Wawanesa. They are a Canadian company but also service WA, OR and CA. I have been with them for almost 50 years and no one has beat their rates yet. JD powers rates them #1 in customer satisfaction. I’ve had 2 claims in that time. One was my wife’s fault and the other was the deer’s fault (both totals). In both cases they settled very quickly for more than I thought the vehicles were worth. The truck hit a deer while camping in Utah. Using bailing wire and duct tape I made it back home to CA. It was an older truck and the damage mounted up quickly. When they gave me the payout amount, I said, “Man I just put 4 new tires on it”. The adjuster asked me how much they cost and added that amount to the claim. I’ve never seen that happen before.

RE: Painting travel trailer white to reduce heat in summer?

I just read an article that tested interior temperatures of cars painted black or white. After time the difference was only 4 degrees. Car insulation is about the sane as RV’s.

RE: Puzzling Plumbing Problem

When it's at 100 pounds and you open a faucet, is there a huge burst of water under extreme pressure? Most plumbing systems are not even designed to handle that much pressure so you would also likely have leaking connections somewhere if the pressure is truly that high. The P&T valve on your water heater does not release until 150 PSI. Modern piping is designed to exceed that pressure. Otherwise the pipes would burst and spray hot water everywhere

RE: Truck Fire Ford SD 6.7

OK,Port,Starboard. But do you know why? Ancient ships didn’t have a centered rudder. They had a “steering board” attached to the RIGHT side of the ship. That meant when a ship came in to dock, it docked on the LEFT side of the ship. PORT side. The RIGHT side became the steer board (STARBOARD) side. Lesson over:B

RE: How to prevent Keirig from freezing??

In regards to the landfills, K-Cups are recyclable. All the ones I buy state that and tell you what to do. Peal the top off, dump the coffee, rinse, put with recyclables. Now, do I do this? NOOOO!! When they make it easy to pull the top off I will, right now it is a PAIN. I use a cheap no name K-Cup brewer, OK, it has a name, but nothing I have heard of before, that makes a single cup and pretty much sucks all the water out each time. Unfortunately, being recyclable does not mean it will be recycled. Because of the drop in recycled material value, pretty much only cardboard, some paper, plastic bottles and aluminum drink containers are recycled these days. It’s not cost effective to sort the other items so everything else goes to the dump. If you don’t believe it, check with your supposed recycler.

RE: Had our catalytic converter stolen

Beware of any of the companies that sell replacements online especially if they're across the country and wants to sell you new replacements cheap. They will fit but if you have to have a smog check the printed numbers on the converter might show up as not an approved unit for the state in which you live. Just went to storage Thursday to pick mine up to leave for a trip Friday morning. Started it up and and knew right away my cat was gone. Contacted the storage management and they said several have been reported. Referred me to a muffler shop, went in a 7:30 the next morning was out of there by 8:00 and $1700 poorer. Gee… maybe they had one that was an “exact” match right down to the rough cuts. :B

RE: Big black bugs crawling across road

Saw a similar thing on CA 95 south of Needles CA in the Mojave. About 40 miles of millions of caterpillars crossing the road all headed west. Made a mess on the front of the trailer.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford 150 3.5 EcoBoost

I’ve been towing my 8000# (scale weight) trailer since 2013 with my HDPP F150 Eco. Payload is 2560#. Many many miles in the mountain west and I have never had an issue with engine braking being insufficient. I down shift early keeping RPM in the 4000 range and have never experienced beyond moderate use of the service brakes. Now mileage, it sucks. At 60 MPH it’s 8 to 9 calculated because the lieometer is always 1 to 1 1/2 higher. LOL Bare mixed mileage rarely exceeds 14. I think the combination of LT tires and 3.73 diff kills it.

RE: Stabilizer blocks alternatives

Here’s a pic of my 5-7-9 blocks (depending on which way you turn them). They are hollow and have minimal internal framing so they are light.

RE: Truck upgrade?

I wouldn’t worry about the RPM. The engineers test these engines at redline RPM for hours and even days at a time. The set the redline at a safe value from those tests. In addition, the ECU will not let you exceed the redline. Just hammer it!

RE: 2013 Ecoboost overheating

My ‘13 Ecoboost HDPP did the same over heat when towing my 8000” trailer up 6% grades. Previously I had towed up long grades twice as steep without issue. Changed thermostat and issue resolved. Change the cap also as they fail with age. I’m on my second replacement. Loss of pressure results in considerably lower boiling point.
