RE: can a ford ranger tow trailer on steep mtns rds?

Put actuators on the solar panels that can stand them up facing forward on downgrades. More frontal are with light weight works wonders for downgrade braking.

RE: Truck camper on top of gooseneck hitch?

My Cirrus camper has removable service panels on the bottom. I found stall mats to be pretty dense vs the screws holding the panels on. I changed to anti fatigue matting with the round holes.

RE: Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

Update- Off to Ford dealer this week to connect to the Ford mother ship for diagnosis.

RE: Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

Fords of that year have separate fuses for trailer taillight, left and right brake/turn lights. Correct answer. As mentioned in my original post the trailer circuit 15 amp fuses did not blow. There are also relays in the trailer circuits in the truck power center. Testing of them is next order. More info: the trailer right turn circuit was tested direct to a battery. Does not work - tiny spark when jumping to the terminal on the 7 way suggests a short in the trailer. Consumer OBD scanner does not show any codes. I suspect Nv Guy is on the right track.

RE: Tesla driving across Canada in 74 hrs

Do they pay to plug in and charge? Yep. Well, some of the earlier buyers got free lifetime charging but most of us pay to play. :). What is your cost per km for energy in day to day use? Well, life time kilometres per kWh for our leaf after 4 and a bit years was 6.4 kilometres per kWh. We pay 9 cents per kWh. There was no other maintenance other than washer fluid in four years. We haven’t tracked the Tesla but I’m told it’s more efficient. We have had it a little over a year. Same thing. Only washer fluid for maintenance. Superchargers are about 3 times as expensive as charging at home. They are generally only used on road trips. The vast majority of charging is done at home or work. Hope that helps. That is interesting - here in AB it is not uncommon for non city people to run a set of wheels for 300,000km. The electric vehicle would cost $4200 approx for energy at home. A fuel efficient gas passenger car about $27,000 for gas and my F350 about $54,000. :B

Ford experts - rear turn signal output to trailer stopped

I have an interesting issue today on my 2012 F-350 chassis cab model. Quick background - when the up fitter installed the flat bed body, light connections were made to the correct wires for body lighting. Trailer 7 way connector was wired in to the correct chassis trailer wiring. All as per Ford body builder electrical manual. The truck and trailer wiring has functioned properly for 18 months. Last week I towed a trailer for someone else using a 4 to 7 plug adapter. The info center alarmed a "trailer disconnected" "trailer connected" message of and on for 5 or 6 times - the trailer lights were ok and not disconnected... Today I connected a new to me enclosed trailer. The trailer lighting functioned properly on the previous owners Nissan truck. It functioned correctly on my Dodge truck last fall. I connected the Ford to it and there was no right turn signal on the trailer. The LED right turn signal on the headache rack on the flatbed flashed, the 2 at the rear of the truck bed did not. Left side OK, tail and brake lights all ok. Front turn signals and mirror signal lights ok. Disconnect from trailer all truck lights work properly. Connect truck to a second trailer. No turn signals work at all at rear. Mirror and front lights work. Disconnect second test trailer. Now no turn signals on the truck flatbed work at all. Mirrors and front turns work. Turn/stop fuses are ok in cab fuse box. I understand there are relays for the trailer turn circuits in the under hood power center. I have to get back in to the electrical manual to see if relays exist for body lighting. Park and clearance lights work fine on the flatdeck and cab. It is like a module of some kind has turned off or possibly failed. There are no error messages on the info center on the instrument panel. Anyone experience such a step by step failure? Signed Confused by Fords sometimes..

RE: Tesla driving across Canada in 74 hrs

Three days. Heck it took the Pony Express 10 days coast to coast 150 years ago. Pretty good progress. :) And no poop along the way.:W The trip in the video was called “across Canada” but it was really not. It was between 2 large coastal cities. “Across Canada” by road from furthest west being the Yukon - Alaska border crossing to the Cape Spear lighthouse in Newfoundland and Labrador is 8570 km or 5360 miles give or take. The Tesla still wouldn’t need an oil change.

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

We heated one small home for ten winters with wood. A stove with a large enough firebox to hold a fire for a whole sleep but good enough draft/damping control to not overheat the space in mild weather is the goal. Getting up in the middle of the night to add wood so the water bucket isn’t froze over in the morning is a nuisance. Naps beside a wood stove are the best...

RE: Harris Ranch will be the biggest Supercharger in the world

That last spot north of the black field is where I park. Watch airplanes, eat bbq. Anyways when you are towing with a Tesla and want to supercharge do you dolly off your trailer or jack knife in the end charger or what? I see H fuel cell vehicles can pull through.

RE: Towing up grades with "M" and 1 gears

This might be a dumb question so excuse me if it is. My 2009 Chevy Duramax with Allison has the engine brake for descending down steep hills (not a Jake brake), it works well and I use it all the time when descending. Now my dumb question and I ask myself this every time the engine brake is required and comes on. Is more fuel used during this downhill braking scenario??? No, by definition engine braking is running the cylinders without fuel so you're using less fuel than letting the engine idle and using the friction brakes. Correct. When a diesel is in “deceleration” (foot off throttle above idle speed) mode zero fuel is injected.

RE: Why do you Cummins guys want more gears

I think the “biggest” Allison that fits in a class 8 truck will have 7 speeds due to how the transmission functions. This to move loads like drilling rigs at 220,000lbs GCWR. They will have auxiliaries or shiftable planetary rear axles but these are not “shift on the fly” behind an Allison. One wonders why a diesel pickup would “need” a 10 speed... Anyways back to the thread...

“Fake” Allison? “Real” Allison? What is this? ^
