RE: Curt Echo Wireless Trailer Brake Controller???

In an emergency situation and you need to manually activate the trailer brakes, grabbing my cell phone and waking it up to activate the brakes would be a deal "braker" for me. S

RE: 2017 F350 6.7. Inspection?

I'm quite sure Carfax doesn't report regular maintenance.

RE: 2020 Ford 7.3L Ike Gauntlet

I see this as my only option for my next tow vehicle IF I want to stay with Ford. Just can't see myself buying a Ford 6.7. I would always be wondering when the fuel pump is going to grenade. Neighbour here at our park in Largo had his 2016 die last week. The fuel pump took out the fuel system. 30,000 miles on the truck!! THERE WAS NO WATER IN THE FUEL AND WARRANTY IS COVERING IT. IF I go diesel it will probably be a 2017+ GM. S

RE: Auto slider or manual

spud1957 Pullrite and B&W do not have auto sliders for the 2020 chvey YET. They are working on it, but no timeline. He does not have the hitch pucks as stated in his other closed thread.

RE: Auto slider or manual

You mentioned in your other post Demco is the only one. Not true. Pullrite has auto slider hitches as well.

RE: Route to Florida

This year from New Brunswick; I95>I495>I90>I87(toll)>I84>I81>I66>VA15>I95>FLORIDA Not a fan of I84 thru Hartford to Newburgh. Prefer I 90 thru Mass and I87 along the Hudson. $20 toll but worth it to me.

RE: Bent Kingpin?

Good luck with insurance! Nothing for them to pay. Your trailer frame let go. No difference if you broke a spring on your truck. Insurance doesn't pay for that. S

RE: Places to stay for the night around Chambersburg PA

There is a Sleep Inn Carlisle at exit 478. It has RV parking. Also a Cracker Barrel next door.

RE: Air bags or "Bump Stop" type suspension

You are saying your 250 sets lower in the rear than the front when hitched? If so air bags are the BEST option, air to get truck "LEVEL" not unloaded stance!!! If stock shocks add Bilstein's. This combo you WILL thank me. Sad a 250 needs help with that little pin. Just about all Ford's do! Even on the F450 review fish posted, the owner installed airbags. OP, bag it and don't look back! How about a 3500 Ram dually that comes with air bags. Kinds hypocritical calling it sad that a 250 needs bags

Maine to Hershey

Heading from Old Orchard Beach early Monday morning. Usually take I90 to I87 to I84 to I81. Comes with $20 toll. Thinking this time I90 to I84 to I87 to I287 to I78. Might save 30 minutes. Any comments?

RE: exhaust manifold leak

Does this require lifting the body off tge frame ? No. They go in thru the wheel well.

RE: exhaust manifold leak

Hopefully the $2000 quote is for both sides. I had one side of my 6.2 done for $1000 at a dealer. If it is for only one side, you need to go somewhere else.

RE: Hitch sliding while unloaded

Shouldn't your trailer brakes keep the unit from lurching forward? As stated in the original post, it happens when unloaded. The solution is to adjust the threaded stop nut. This is what it is there for.

RE: Outside Plugs

My son is an Electrical PEng. We had this discussion recently. I asked him why do the outlets in the hospital have the universal ground up? He said and confirmed there is nothing in the Canadian NEC that states they are to be up. I did have an Electrician explain that when using a metal face plate, and the plate falls off the outlet, it prevents the plate from possibly shorting out across the plug. Sounds reasonable.

RE: Ford 6.7L 1050 ft lbs TQ at 1,600 rpm, 475 HP at 2,800 rpm

What is the spec of the brakes? What about the brakes? There isn't a tow vehicle on the road with brakes engineered to stop itself AND the trailer. NONE! As stated in every Ford truck owners manual. Important: The towing vehicle’s braking system is rated for operation at GVWR, not at GCWR. Pretty self explanatory.

RE: February Camping From Long Island?

RE: Short Bed 5er Towing

And based on the OPs other threads combined with not owning a truck to pull the new camper yet, a HD gasser doesn’t really cost more than a comparable 1/2 ton gasser. Get a HD. To update, bought a truck. 1/2 ton. Rated to tow 2,000lbs more than the dry weight of the camper. Will be adding tow assist air bags, tunner (to up trans line pressure and monitor temp), and truck has a new built transmission. Add up the weight of your passengers and the 5th wheel hitch. Take that number and deduct that from your 2000lbs. Please read the small print for tow ratings!!!!
