RE: 1997 Fleetwood Caribou 12 ft

Family of 6 in a supercab f250! I tried that with my 1191 on an F250 and quickly found out I needed a dually after many upgrades to that truck, and I only have 2 kids and no boat! Try having a rear tire blow out going down the highway with that much weight on the back.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas engine

I can’t wait for Ford to make it available in the F450 pickup. Anybody heard any rumors yet? :):) All ready for your flatbed :)

RE: road trip in Feb or March

Have you gone to Cape Canaveral area yet? Kennedy Space Center is pretty cool.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas engine

My take on resale is if the 7.3L gas engine proves itself to be a stable product that you might see higher resale for it over a 6.7L diesel. Once word gets out to the non-gearheads about godzilla they will be more than willing to pick a used one and pay top dollar to not have to deal with diesel. They will need to start making more high flow gas pumps :) That is one thing I love about diesel, I can fill up in record time at a truck stop.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas engine

And if you want to up the game on your 7.3 gas you will still be cheaper than a 6.7.

RE: Seeking advice on new TC purchase

Interesting, Parkview extended their TC lineup, I got my Lance from them. They were OK, the sales staff was nice but the service department I expected better from them being a Lance dealer. I am guessing whoever you get it from you are not factoring in Service since you live so far away from them?

RE: Used TC: does it have a lien?

If he gets you a clear Idaho title (no lien) wouldn't that get you what you want so you can register it? It wouldn't hurt to put in the BOS that the TC is free and clear of any liens just in case. I would ask the state if you can find someone to talk to these days about how to handle this.

RE: New Host Mammoth

If the OP had gotten a 450 I wouldn't mention that. The 350 brakes are one of the weak points if you ask me. I just redid the rears and front on mine, new calipers/rotors/pads/flex line. At a minimum I would suggest upgrading the front brakes to a bigger caliper with that much weight.

RE: New Host Mammoth

Upgrade your brakes since your going with an F350, both caliper and rotor's. I would go with drilled and slotted with ebc yellow's. That is a lot of weight to try and stop.

RE: Engine repair / upgrade after road trip

Nothing is cheap on these trucks, my front passenger side breaks just locked up this past weekend so now I am replacing everything up front to the tune of $400 in parts. I did the rears a few months ago after one of them locked up. I still consider myself ahead. Btw, according to the MPG on the dash I am getting 19 with the camper on now with the change to the 6637 air filter, I was getting 13 with the K&N filter in the stock box. I was really surprised to see that.

RE: Engine repair / upgrade after road trip

I have been keeping my 02 stock but will start to slowly upgrade it now that I just upgraded the clutch to a South Bend HD and got the ZF6 issues sorted out. Should be solid for quite a bit of HP now. I just put in a 6637 filter in it and took out the stock air box and can tell a difference from just that alone. I will slowly upgrade other parts as I go along, new bellowed up pipes are in my future as well and when I do that I will do some turbo work and some valley work while that is out.

RE: Chalet TS116 Experiance

Sounds like my Lance 1191, I would also be on the lookout for one of them if you only want 1 slide.

RE: Front Window Yes or No?

Who needs a window when you can put a camera on the front.

RE: F350 where do I jack from? / would this plan work?

The times I have changed my tires I have released the turnbuckles and raised the camper off the truck to take the weight off then used a 6 ton bottle jack to jack up the axle to change the tire.

RE: Onan lp genny switch conundrum.

I had the same thing happen to my onan down there, I had parked in the bull pen so the wind was blowing right at my generator door (E wind), the next morning I went to fire it up and it wouldn't stay running (ran fine day before). I gave up fiddling with it and waited for the solar to kick in to top the batteries off. When I got home that evening and pressed the button the dang thing fired right up, never have figured out what caused the issue other than possible moisture? Edit: If your on LOA:

RE: What do you keep in your camper.

I have a lot of "stuff", hence why I upgraded to an 1191, to carry all said "stuff" so everyone in the family is happy to have their "stuff" while camping. It is nice to be able to open up a cabinet and find "stuff" I forgot I even had.

Wow, now that is a heck of a route, that is a lot of APC's to haul around from DDU's.

RE: Carseat Advice for Quad Cab Truck

Easy google search straight from the chp website: Current California Law: Children under 2 years of age shall ride in a rear-facing car seat unless the child weighs 40 or more pounds OR is 40 or more inches tall. The child shall be secured in a manner that complies with the height and weight limits specified by the manufacturer of the car seat. (California Vehicle Code Section 27360.) Children under the age of 8 must be secured in a car seat or booster seat in the back seat. Children who are 8 years of age OR have reached 4’9” in height may be secured by a booster seat, but at a minimum must be secured by a safety belt. (California Vehicle Code Section 27363.) Passengers who are 16 years of age and over are subject to California's Mandatory Seat Belt law. Frequently Asked Questions At what age can my child ride in the front seat of my vehicle? ?California law requires all children 8 years of age or younger ride in the rear seat of a vehicle. There are special circumstances which provide exemption from the law. Your child may ride in the front seat if: Your vehicle has no rear seats. Rear seats are side-facing jump seats. Child safety restraints must never be placed on side-facing vehicle seats. The rear seats are rear-facing seats. The child restraint system cannot be properly installed in the rear seat. For example, your vehicle has lap belts only in the back seat, but there are lap and shoulder belts in the front seat. Your child is 5 and weighs 45 pounds and must ride in a booster seat. The booster seat must be used with a lap and shoulder belt; therefore your child may ride in the front seat. Children under age 7 occupy all rear seats. Medical reason (written by the pediatrician) requires that child not be restrained in the back seat. All children are safer in the back seat, ask another adult to ride with the child in the back. It is strongly recommended by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration that all children ride in the back seat of a vehicle until 13 years of age.

RE: TC manual jacks

I know the powered ones are pretty much a swap out fit. Not sure about manual ones.
