RE: Good thing Ford TC haulers don’t use the tailgates ...

The link doesn't open for me. I did not use my tailgate much on my 2017 model, but from what I remember it has mechanical latches that hold the tailgate up and electrical latch lock for security. Meaning even electrical malfunction will release the lock, the latches will still hold the tailgate up. The lock assemble has whole harness going to it, what operates camera and light as well. I’m not familiar with the design. If you pull the handle when it’s locked, does it release the latches so that when you do (or it does) eventually unlock it, it falls? Maybe that’s the concern. If not then nothing to worry about.

RE: New battery tech (Has this been posted yet?)

Cool stuff. There's been posts about solid state cells but I hadn't see this. Here's directly from the source and doesn't require Ads or subscription.

RE: Will solid state batteries change the world?

IMO, this has real potential. Time will tell. You go John B. Goodenough! A true pioneer. A google/wiki search is in order. This guy is the real deal. Chum lee For the sake of those poor folks on mobile devices, please make it clickable.

RE: Serpentine Belt

To Gdetrailer. Yeah that's exactly what I'm going to do. I appreciate your advise. I'll post what I find. If anything. I’ve dribbled small amount of water onto a chirping belt before. If it gets quieter, it’s the belt or alignment.

This brochure says 157A base and 200A optional.

RE: extension cord length

It also depends upon how much wire there is in your house between the panel and the receptacle you’re using. Your best bet is to measure the voltage inside the RV with whatever appliances (e.g. A/C) running and step the cord gauge up if it’s not enough.

RE: Upgrade truck suspension

TC weight doesn't affect front load much, so can't imagine how new, factory shocks on front can't be adequate for handling. Than I never drove Dodge ;) My 2017 F350 holds 6000 lb camper on factory suspension just fine, but just to smooth empty ride, I installed Sulastic hangers. They improved empty ride a lot and even it is hard to tell difference when loaded, it has to be smoother as well. I have no problem with handling even at 75 mph. High COG loads like TC’s affect the dynamic load at the front. Porpoising and side to side roll involve both axles.

RE: I take back all the good stuff I've said about Les Schwabs!

Well I will have LS fix a flat on a tire I take to them. No way they are touching my vehicles. They don’t torque properly. That’s a fact! I INSIST to pay for the repair. Manager got red faced pizzed with me when I would not accept the repair for free. I said I will never buy a tire or brakes so I feel it’s hypocritical to accept the service for free and not ever buy anything. I'm pretty sure they don't have a company policy of not torquing properly. That's up to the individual employee to do the job right. When taking shortcuts with the air wrench turned up to high you can certainly end up with over torqued lugs. The guys who do it right have to turn a bit further before the click happens.

RE: Buyer Beware: Reserve America / Active Advantage

Of course something was clicked is error. I feel it is deceptive for them to even be allowed to insert their subscription option into the check out process. If it were not in the check out process and just advertised on the page somewhere that would be different. But to have it in the check out where it is normal to have to click check boxes to agree to things is down right wrong. Completely agree. Any “company” that has to trick people into signing up is peddling garbage.

RE: Storage compartment lock latch?

They’re called cam locks. Yours seem to have quite a large offset so that will be your only challenge. McMaster-Carr may have more offset choices:

RE: Overloaded wheel Breakage

What I find pathetic is the wheels were supposedly rated for 2500 lbs but failed with not much over 3000. That is a terrible margin for such a critical component. That wheel was either defective or the company that made it is.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Jim had me going with his legend till he made the boat ramp issue. I've been launching boats with motorhomes, bus conversions, RWD Chevy vans (who actually suck on everything, but size) , RWD flatbeds, and traction was never issue. I recall slight issue with FWD Volkswagen pickup, but still manageable. There are big tide changes in Puget Sound. I’ve seen more than one vehicle stuck on the ramp because of algae or mud on retrieval. Just because you haven’t seen it doesn’t mean it didn’t happen. Usually, someone feels sorry for them and hooks a chain/tow strap to their front. BTW, also happens on rivers and lakes. Try a search for vehicle stuck on boat ramp. Some ramps are extremely steep as well. Fwiw, it was all true, but I don’t know if you should believe me since it is the internet ... Also add to that the ramps that have a series of concrete bars with gravel in between below the water level. I saw a RWD truck stuck between those until they removed the boat, pulled forward some and then re-loaded. Not all boat ramps are in the desert where the water gets low enough to pave a nice ramp well into the water.

RE: Loose tow bar in receiver

Have a welding/fabrication shop attach thin plates to the top and bottom or just run weld beads to thicken the bar.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

One of my the early days on the Oregon coast. Would you trust a 2x2 or a 4x4 in this place? Can anybody tell me what vehicle is 2X2?
