RE: Towing New Trailer

when it comes time to replace tires on TV, go with LT "E" tires. Huge improvement on tow experience.

Forcing Garmin 890 to a different route?

When I go to pick up 5th wheel, the fastest route will take me through a major metropolitan city that I want to avoid. Modified route will only cost me an estimated 30 minutes or so. How do I specify specific roads to travel?

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford 150 3.5 EcoBoost

I didn't have the high capacity F150, but that little ecoboost engine did quite well on my GVWR IRC of 5,500. I get that going through mountains in TN and KY is not the same as out west, but with cruise control set, I gained a maximum of 5mph. Truck down shifted to keep the speed down.

Any use for portable 30a EMS on 50a Trailer?

I'm installing a hard wired 50a EMS in the new trailer, is there any reason to keep the 30a EMS?

RE: TPMS valve stems issue

Tire dealer said the metal valve stems they had wouldn't fit on my rims. They had a heavy duty valve stem, and it was heavy duty. I ordered the Ford trailer TPMS kit with my truck. I'm going to miss the TST temperature monitoring, but it will be one less device on top of the Instrument Panel.

RE: Transmission shudder

shudder is often friction plates that have absorbed moisture in the fluid. Sometimes, changing fluid will clear it up. Exactly, and that's what the wrong fluid was causing, moisture in what was supposed to be a sealed system. Transmissions are not sealed. They have a vent that allows the trans do breath as it heats up and cools down. Vent is above an OEM identified water line, which is determined based on how high water splashes when driven into puddles at various depths and speeds.

RE: Generators

Hi, Although it wont run the roof air, I'd suggest adding a modest solar panel system. One Honda will run a modified AC unit. Two Honda's will run one AC, or two modified AC's.

RE: Truck upgrade?

This isn't the best time to buy a new truck. Prices are climbing off the map... if you can find one. I've watched OEM's testing engines at redline, those engines were screaming.

RE: Help understand what's going on with emails

I read my emails from the providers server. This generally should avoid nefarious email content.

Ford and GM both sell TPMS for trailers. I don't know about Ram

RE: What caulk for the Winegard antenna cable?

Isn't there a better product than dicor?

RE: Dometic A/C with Thermostat Issues

RE: AC Hard start additions

Heck even just the continuous running current of a 13.5K RV A/C is roughly 13A and in extreme hot weather can rise to nearly 15A. I measured amp draw of my 15k AC, and running watts was a whopping 1200, aka 10 amps. My 2500 watt generator had no problems once I installed Microaire Easy Start

RE: Down Sizing

rent a dumpster and just start putting stuff in it. It's really really really hard at first and gets easier as you move along. We went from 2200 sq ft with a very full basement to roughly 1400 sq ft. Also sold the travel trailer while we wait for the 5th wheel, so all of that stuff is in storage shed and stuff we kept, and don't have room for it in the "home".

RE: Getting Confused on what can I tow

what toedtoes said. Payload is most often limiting factor on 1/2 Ton trucks.

RE: On street parking problems Portland

The problem is the majority of homeless are either mentally ill and/or drug addicts. Define homeless? Full timers are technically and legally homeless. I don't consider myself as mentally ill or a drug addict, and I don't have a permanent B&M homestead I call home.
