RE: tuner chip

If I was going that route, I would seriously consider re-gearing your truck to lower gears. Do you already have the 4.30 gears? How much gains is that tuner claiming? If they are meeting California smog requirements, I doubt it’s much. No to the 4.30 gears. We have the 3.73. I'm not sure many folks know about this particular tuner chip. I'm reluctant to put anything on the truck that would effect the computer. But he wanted me to ask if anyone has had experience with this tuner so I am.

tuner chip

We have a 2015 F350 6.2. We want to try to squeeze a little more power out of it. Is anyone using a Thorton chip tuner on their truck? What's your experience? We live in California so I think the 5 start tune is out of the question for us due to smog requirements. Thanks

RE: Gulfstream or Winnegabo On a gas model?

Gulfstream or Winnegabo

thinking of trading in our trailer and looking at class a motorhomes. Two have my interest. One a 2005 Gulfstream Sun Voyager Atrium 8388 the other a 2006 Winnebago Voyage 38J. Both have @ 50,000 miles. Both are Chevy 8.1 Vortec (I'm a V10 Ford girl). Both are the same price. Any thoughts? One specific question is what is the little yellow button on the dash board of the Gulf Stream?

RE: highway 49 California

Hi all, Anyone drive down highway 49 from South shore Lake Camanche to Co Columbia State Park towing a 35ft., travel trailer? Your experience? Steep climb out of Lake Tahoe. Plan on a slow and leisurely drive on Hwy 49 to Columbia. Not Lake Tahoe but Lake Camanche. We store our trailer at Lake Camanche.

RE: highway 49 California

We live very near the park in Columbia, have driven our 30’ Class A gasser towing; semi’s drive it daily; as a courtesy you might pull over occasionally for faster traffic; it’s not a flat straight road for sure...... Thanks! Have you stayed at Marble Quarry recently? We stayed many years ago and would like to return but I've been hearing that it is run down. There is another rv park close by,49er rv ranch?

RE: determining pay load capacity

I asked early in the thread, if your truck has the FW puck system?? If not, and want to use rails, there are many options. I would not want the Andersen single point attachment hitch. I use a B&W standard (non-sliding hitch) in my Ford 6.75' bed. Jerry Going to check the truck for that puck system. I've been reading about B&W. I think their TT hitch looks nice but I haven't looked at anything for a 5th wheel. Thanks

RE: determining pay load capacity

Holy cow I have a headache now! Payload to tires to CHP! I would ask the DMV about that 10000 weight issue but I know I would get two different answers. As they write the tickets I will check with the CHP. Now, we just spent 5 days at Jackson Rancheria, such a beautiful rv park. For the most part there were motorhomes (mostly diesel) and 5th wheels. Just a few trailers. We watched our neighbor hook up his 5th wheel. He was using Anderson lite. What hitch do you use? My husband, a retired truck driver, did not like the look of that Anderson lite. Thanks

RE: determining pay load capacity

Also had a customer have his fiver taken when he couldn’t produce his “travel trailer” endorsement on his license. I live in California. My husband is a retired truck driver. I don't know what happened to this guy but there is no such thing as travel trailer endorsement on a drivers license.

RE: determining pay load capacity

The truck does have commercial tags on it. However, this is no weight listed on the registration renewal notice. California just wants the money.

RE: determining pay load capacity

Well, that's interesting. We just got the registration notice and we do pay a weight penalty of 204.00.

RE: determining pay load capacity

Janice...that payload seems way low for a 2015 F350 gas truck!! You may have one of those 350s with a 10K GVWR, which can be ordered for licensing and registration etc. Jerry our door sticker does say GVWR 10000 lbs. What does it mean when you say, "you may have one of those 350s with a 10k GVWR, which can be ordered for licensing and registration etc." We bought this truck used. Thank you Janice

determining pay load capacity

Hello, I'm trying to determine the payload capacity of my F350. I am looking at 5th wheels and want to stay safe. I have a 2015 F350, 4x4, srw, 6.2 gasser. The sticker on the door post (tire and loading information) says the combined weight of occupants and cargo should never exceed 2744 pounds. Is that the payload capacity? I'm looking at 5th wheels that are under 10000 pounds and I see there is a lot of difference in the pin weights. What's your opinion? And is there a good light weight 5th wheel hitch? Thank you Janice

RE: 2006 Itasca SunCruiser 35A

Thank you for all the input. We were looking at a 5th wheel that would have cost the same as the Suncruiser (49,000). We have a Ford pickup that recently had the tailgate stolen. We have a new tailgate but Ford isn't making the wiring harness for the camera so I know all about not getting parts right away. It sure is a pretty rig but some of those 5th wheels are too. Dang if I could only win the lottery!

2006 Itasca SunCruiser 35A

Hi all, We are looking around at buying a new to us rv. We have a F350 to tow a 5th wheel with and have been looking at those. While at a dealership I did see a 2006 Itasca SunCruiser 35A that looked nice. Does anyone have experience with this model? It is on a Workhorse and that makes me nervous. Putting all that weight on a Chevy. It would be better with a V10. Is the SunCruiser entry level Itasca, midlevel? Thanks!
