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.

RE: Propane experts

Thanks guys.

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.

RE: 5th wheel hitch suggestion

You are on track with your thinking. You didn't use the slider with the Ram, and now the Ford will work even better. It isn't the bed length though, as much as it is the distance from axle center, to the back of cab. The Ford is giving you several more inches of clearance in this case. No, you don't need a slider! The 3300 is by far the best choice for your new Ford! You just upgraded to the best truck, may as well put best hitch in it!! You will love them both! Congrats on the new purchases, Jerry Jerry, is your truck a short box? Which BW hitch do you have?

RE: Ford F-250 7.3 Gas Engine Axle Ratios

Is there much difference in towing milage, and around town/highway mileage with the new F-250 7.3 gas engine with rear gear options? Considering 3.55 or 4.30 axles ratios. Any input is helpful. The only transmission available is the new 10R140. The 4.30 would be great for pulling stumps or towing over 10,000 lbs, but the fuel economy would not be very good. It depends if they can program the transmission to start in 3rd or even 4th with a light load (driver only). Personally, I would go with the 3.73 and electronic locking differential. 3:73s are only available in the F350.

RE: Merry Christmas to me

Very nice truck. How high is that lift kit? Doesn't have a lift kit. Must be the angle.

Merry Christmas to me

Looks like I bought a 2018 F350 XLT, 6.7 PS. 23K kilometers. Get it tomorrow. First diesel :E https://i.imgur.com/uU9OoE3l.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/uU9OoE3l.jpg

RE: RVK3300 with Ram Short box EDIT

here is what it looked like with the 18K Patriot with the arms all the way back...when I had a Ford. That last picture makes up my mind. Way too close for me. If the trailer tires were on uneven ground, it could tap the cab.

RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

You can close this thread. Not going to buy the truck.

RE: Looking at '17 3500 Ram

OP here again. Just found out the truck is deleted!!! Having second thoughts now. Personally I would pass, not sure of the laws in Canada, but in the US it is federal law loosely enforced currently, but that could change. The rules are Provincial and it's not a problem where I am. More concerned about future problems. There is still about 1 1/2 year diesel and powertrain warranty. Basically worthless with the delete. And I also don't like the sound!!! Gonna pass.
