RE: Cant get parts shipped from USA to Canada

Where are you looking for the part, is it available from other resellers? Is it a generic part or is it manufacture specific? If one online portal does not offer Cda shipping I can always find another that does. Never been beat yet.

RE: Froze black/grey tanks....

I was pretty sure you'd be fine.

RE: Froze black/grey tanks....

How do you know they are frozen if you haven't drained them? Is the belly of the rig covered or open? If open a small electric forced air heater will do the trick blowing on the tank, if it is closed and insulated with a "heated" underbelly turn on the furnace and crank it up. It'll take a while but it will eventually warm it up. I've had worse, don't panic.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

In my area gas powered HD trucks are relatively rare and sell for much less than the same diesel powered trucks. Of course the exception is many of the Ford diesels after the 7.3L was discontinued....:) So as has been mentioned many times, the diesel truck will net way more when it's time to sell or trade in so the difference in fuel economy is only one consideration when making the decision to buy. Maybe true but how many 5.4L and 6.8L's do you still see in service? Not many to very few and if you did how much are they worth. How many 6.0L's of the same vintage do you still see...........at lot more. Surprising what my 6.0L with over 300k miles is still worth.

RE: Spendy used tow vehicle

*** I saw a similar Excursion for sale at a similar price, but was modded to death with 6" lift kit, performance chip, etc. I get that they are rare, but that's a lot of coin for a 20 year old truck that you will never get parts for. It's worth $10k all day in my book, but as we all know anything is worth what somebody is willing to pay for it. It's built on an F250. The parts are available EVERYWHERE! Including the 7.3L Navistar built Powerstroke. Couldn't ask for a better used truck/SUV than an Excursion.

RE: Fuelly mileage of the big three diesels

I like the "hips" on the new Ford duallys.

RE: Champion generator

Been some decent reviews on the Predator generators from Harbor Freight . .........and some not so great ones if you go through their online reviews.

RE: Champion generator

Champion Power Equipment has their Cdn headquarters in Burlington Ontario. I've emailed CS about a problem with my power washer and they set me up with a repair facility in Hamilton, sent parts from California for them to install under warranty. No issues with them at all. Been very pleased with both a generator and powerwasher. Both over ten years old. Maybe try emailing CS.

RE: Pre 2008 Ford Super Duty

If you want to do it nicer you can remove the WHOLE cylinder lock in less than two minutes with a philips screwdriver and pick. Then another 30 sec's to install a new lock cylinder with your own key and drive it away. I wore out my lock cylinder, you could turn it without a key in it. For what ever reason the 2001-2007 SD's are highly sought after over in the sandbox. Not sure the reason, they just are.

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

I put Coopers on my F350 and had wear issues as well. Replaced them after 2 years and around 35K miles and went back to GY's. No defects in them just unusually rapid wear on all four corners They were not worth the savings. I just switched to Cooper HT3s for my F-250 because after 3 sets the Goodyear Duratrac did not last like I thought they should. I have always had good luck with Cooper tires so it was a natural switch for me. OP, those tires have seen LOTS of gravel, haven't they? I grew up living on gravel, I have seen that before. I did the complete opposite. The Duratracs have twice the mileage on them as the HT3's and way more tread left. Superior snow traction, abrasion resistance and they look WAY better on the truck. What works for you, works for you.

Walked the same path. Miss it, don't miss the noise.

RE: Modern Rebuilt Trans for Towing

I am of the school, "if it is not broke don't fix it !" The best thing you can do is use a transmission cooler and change the fluid every 50K miles. I recommend using what the factory used. Replace the factory cooler with the unit from the 6.0's Torqueshift. Cool as a cucumber.

RE: ALBERTA PARKS NOW OPENING

Well there are some provinces that have closed their borders to outsiders and maybe more joining. You may have to copy and paste this. https://www.cbc.ca/news/business/travel-canada-provinces-covid-19-restrictions-1.5589316 Restricting my right to travel any where in Canada any time I like is illegal. Only the Federal Government has the power to do that and only under the most severe conditions which I do not see Covid as a qualifier. I welcome the Charter Challenge. You want to lock the country down, get the Fed's to do it legally. I’m not sure what you do / did for a living, but it’s not a lawyer I’m sure. Under the Emergency Measures legislation they can, and have, restricted travel. In a state of emergency they can restrict travel, arrest those that defy those orders, in a situation like a forest fire they can conscript people to fight that fire. No Charter challenge is required, it’s settled law. Apparently not because they are being challenged. If you are ok with your politicians restricting your movements without proper legal recourse and oversight i pity you, you are a fool. Things are not as black and white as you would think or wish.

RE: ALBERTA PARKS NOW OPENING

It's not just the camping. Lots of parks here in Ontario like Pinery and Iverhuron both on Lake Huron just to name a few have crowded beach areas as well. Camping without access to the water would suck.

RE: Do I need sway bar or equalizer?

If it was me, I would get a weight distribution hitch and a friction sway bar. I've been towing trailers for about 30 years, and every trailer I tow over 2500 - 3000lbs would have one if at all possible. You can check them out at etrailer.com x2 They are not that expensive and will greatly enhance your towing experience regardless of the trucks towing capacity. I don't "need" one either but in a good wind on the wrong day you will be very thankful for it.

RE: Good Bluetooth OBD2 Scanner

I have an OBDlink MX BT in my truck. I think it was well worth the money and so far almost two YO has been very reliable. With the Forscan software on my Surface tablet it reads just about from any system in the truck and I use it daily with a droid phone with a paid Torque app. No issues.

RE: Water Damage Repair Info Needed - Please Help!

A least with the Starcraft's there is no coroplast cover over the bottom of the rig. The roof is a luan sandwich as well. Pretty sure someone in the HTT forum did a Starcaft roof on a 215SBS not that long ago. That was the smaller cousin to the 235SBS

RE: Water Damage Repair Info Needed - Please Help!

The Antigua's by Starcraft where/are prone to leaking if you don't do the maintenance, especially when they are this old. I had that exact same 235SBS and we really liked it. I think it's worth fixing. Try this web site on youtube. RV Roof Install Seems pretty knowledgeable, you probably might glean some info from it.
