RE: Lowering rear of truck

Thank you guys. I have an appointment at a spring and suspension shop. The Ford dealer wasn't interested in even talking about doing it. This sounds like the easiest fix for the current problem.

Lowering rear of truck

Our 5er hitch is hitting the rails on the Retrax tonneau cover. And the front of our 5er rides 3 inches high. Someone suggested lowering the back of out 2017 F350 DRW LB CC truck. What are the pros and cons to this adjustment. Has anyone done it?

RE: Hitch hits rails of Retrax

The welder guy said raising the trailer is relatively simply and might help also. I measured our trailer and it sits 3 inches high in the front. So, my limited logic says that raising the trailer 3 inches would make it level. What do you all think of that idea? Our trailer is 13'6" high now so raising it would make it 13'9". Is that too high??? I'm also thinking about lowering the back of our truck to solve this problem. I know nothing about what would be required to do that and what the pros and cons would be. Do any of you have experience and or ideas out there for this one?

RE: Hitch hits rails of Retrax

So today, I met with the service manager at the dealership where we bought the trailer. He says cutting off the back of the hitch ought to solve the problem. Next, I met with a welding shop guy who says cutting off the back of the hitch will NOT reduce the structural integrity of the hitch. And, the trailer is scheduled to have that work done soon. Thanks everyone for your help.

Hitch hits rails of Retrax

Recently we had a Retrax retractable tonneau cover installed on our 2017 F350 DRW 6.7. The hitch on the trailer is now making contact with the rails on the Retrax. Looking down the trailer when it is hitched up to the truck it is easy to see that the trailer is high on the front. It is only an inch or so, but clearly more weight is riding on the rear tires of the trailer. The hitch only make contact by a fraction of an inch. Is the solution to raise the trailer? How difficult is that to accomplish? What are the pros and cons?

RE: 5th Wheel with no dually truck

We started RVing with a 10,000 pound 5er and a SRW f350 V10 truck. All was well. Then we bought a 12,700 pound 5er and the same truck wasn't as much fun. It lacked adequate power on the steeper grades and the trailer seemed to push the truck around some. So we bought a F350 DRW 6.7 and the difference is miraculous. This truck makes towing a breeze. By the way, the new trailer is a Grand Design. We absolutely love it.

RE: advice on 5th wheel hitch option

We have a Pullrite hitch and really like it. Completely easy to hook up and disconnect. We have never had a problem of any kind.

RE: Bike rack front vs rear

We used to haul two bikes on the front of the truck. I liked it until we had to drive in the dark a couple times. That was not pleasant. With the purchase of a new trailer (with a hitch on the back) we now haul the bikes on the back of the trailer. I like this better.

Weight Calculations

My son has a Dutchman (24QB)24' 4500 lb TT. He wants to haul a 300lb motorcycle on the back of the trailer. How much will that motorcycle decrease tongue weight?

RE: Ford 6.7 Class action lawsuit

Is it this? Yes, that looks like it. However, I didn't see a reference to Sterns law.

Ford 6.7 Class action lawsuit

Have any of you heard about a class action law suit from Sterns Law to Ford motor company for excess emissions on the 6.7 deisel?

RE: My have things changed

We recently bought a newer truck and retired our 16-year-old truck. The old truck had 310 HP and 425 lbs. of torque. The new truck has 440 HP and 925 lbs of torque. I love every single HP and every single pound of torque. What a tremendous difference in ease of towing. I feel much more relaxed while driving down the road. Towing now is pure pleasure and easy in comparison. I liked the old truck, but now I'm in love.

RE: Retractable Tonneau Covers

Thanks for your reply. I found out on another forum that ReTrax and GatorTrax are identical other than the name tag.

Retractable Tonneau Covers

We are about to put a retractable cover on our 2017 F350. We had our searching narrowed down to a Retrax Pro MX. But then we discovered a Gator Trax MX. Now we are confused because these two covers appear identical, but the Gator is cheaper. Does anyone know for sure if these two units are actually the same unit with just a different name?

RE: Trying to decide which way to go on fifth wheel hitch

We've only had two hitches so far and both have been Pullrite hitches. I'd certainly look at this brand for any hitch application. We have been VERY happy with Pullrite.

Hydraulic 6 point leveling

We have a Grand Design with the 6 point hydraulic leveling system. The hydraulic line going to one of the rams has a leak. If I disconnect it at the point of the leak, put thread tape on the fitting and reconnect, do I need to be concerned about air in the hydraulic line? Is it like brake lines that need bleeding?

RE: Grand Design slide out malfunction

Thanks for the help. We found a blown 15 amp fuse. Changed it and all is well.

Grand Design slide out malfunction

Our slides will not extend. The battery is new. The manual says to check the auto resetting fuse, which is located next to the slide out motor. But I don't know where the slide out motor is located on this 369RL. CAN ANYONE HELP ME OUT?

RE: Valve stem extensions for DRW

My hand will not fit between the two dually tires.
