RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

The 7.3L has been out for a couple of years now. It should be past any "birthing pains". You definitely want the 3.73 axle. If you tow in the mountains much you probably should get the 4.10. if you stick with the F250, you will likely have to add helper springs. That is NOT an option with the 7.3. It is either the 3.55 or the 4.30. Maybe a bit of clarification. This is not the case with the F350. 3.73 is the standard rear end for all gas engines, 4.30 optional.

RE: Ford Gas 6.2 vs 7.3

Think you're pushing the limits of the 6.2. Another consideration is 6 vs 10 speed transmission. If you go with a F250 with the 6.2, you get the 6 speed. F250 with the 7.3, you get the 10 speed. If you get a F350, you get the 10 speed with both engines.

RE: Your Rig

Thanks folks. Always bugs to work out with new rigs though. Fridge had been on gas for 20 hours since last evening and never cooled down. After the 20 hours the burner shut off. Back to the dealer Monday. Ruined a planned week long fall getaway. After 8 RVs, this is my first Norcold fridge. Not a good first impression. S

RE: Your Rig

Traded our '16 Outback for this '22 Reflection 337RLS. Think we're going to be happy with it. https://i.imgur.com/EfczTM5l.jpg

RE: Helper springs or air bags?

A properly setup WDH will not cause the rear to sag. You need to put more weight on you bars. Once that's done they need to be parallel with the road. Might need to adjust the hitch head angle to accomplish that.

Propane experts

I have two tanks one on each side of the 5th wheel. Regulator/change over is road side. The tank field side tank has what it looks like some sort of regulator between the rubber hose and the metal pipe that goes over to the regulator road side. This component has some kind of blow off valve that's blowing off what appears to be propane when I turn on the tank connected to it. My question is what is this? S

RE: Used “Canadian” trucks

On the newer trucks, just a button on the dash changes all the readouts from Metric to SAE. the physical speed guage doesnt change though,they have both metric and SAE on them and if its a canadian modle it will have the metric promanant and the sae in small numbers , I dont know if the US models have the opposit or just SAE. for example in my canadin f350 platinum I can switch all my readouts to SAE but that is just for the odomiter, tempature, fuel range and such like that. My spedomiter will still show me both at the same time, just the metric is more prominant. Steve I am not sure what you are asking exactly? Steve What does SAE stand for with regards to a measurement that's used in only three countries in the world? Well SAE stands for Society of Automotive Engineers. An organization that has nothing to do with the measurements the US uses. The non-metric measurement is called the Imperial System.

RE: Death wobble

Having said that any solid front axle vehicle has the death wobble potential. 100% correct ! Yeah. This is no way just a "Ford" problem. Any truck with a solid front axle. Google Ram death wobble. Actually I think Ram passed the “Death Wobble” torch to Ford as of late. The only vehicle that I ever had death wobble on was a 64 Ford Econoline with bad King Pin bushings. Russ I guess you didn't Google Ram death wobble. It is not just Ford. Also Jeep as well.
