    12V Fridge and 2019 RAM 1500 eTorque?

    I have wondered idea how far in the future is this for truck campers. Almost certainly big batteries and 120-240 volt inverters are in our future, but how far is the question.

    F-350 360 degree camera system question (custom ordered 2020)

    You don't need the $415 Camera Source (ROSTRA). the ULTIMATE TRAILER TOW CAMERA SYSTEM comes with a camera. I got one with my 2019 but have not mounted it yet. Downside...it has about 30 feet of harness to extend to the back of a trailer.

    Electrical Puzzle 2019 F350

    I ordered the Ultimate Trailer Tow Camera with my 2019 F350 but I only want a camera on my Hallmark camper for now, no trailer, but the entire assembly has over 30 feet of wiring harness included. Can I (or an electronics technician) make a harness/repin a connector, so that the Ford factory...

    Serious Talk - Considering a "disposable" pop-up TC

    I agree with DWH. My so-called quality Hallmark has required constant repair with screws falling out and the wood frame failing. My previous FWC also needed minor repair.

    Need advice with Firestone airbags

    Can I cut the tubing from my Firestone airbags and insert it into a 1/4” push-to-connect fitting? The .260” tubing has what appears to be a D.O.T swaged connection to a Schrader valve, so may not be intended to fit a 1/4” push-to-connect. The photo shows an assembly I made that should allow...

    When I had a FWC I looped a large wire tie through the middle and ends of the turnbuckle to prevent unscrewing.

    Seriously??

    I am surprised that no one has yet mentioned that the lid for the bucket is another $29.99!

    SAE rating for alternator

    Ford gives my 2019 Superduty an alternator rating of 377Amps (dual alternators). Is that the actual ISO or SAE rating? If not, how would I find that? And at what RPM? Thanks in advance

    Safety concerns of global trips

    I have driven about 6 months in South America, 3 months in Southern Africa. Those gigantic rigs look ridiculous and are mostly unnecessary. You could just rent a SUV and stay in various lodging and feel totally comfortable. Second, after 5-6 weeks in Colombia I am convinced that a traffic...

    Bonding sheet aluminum to composite Panels?

    I think I would add wood flour to any boat building epoxy until you reach your desired consistency and spread with a 1/8" notched trowel. Research surface prep on the aluminum. Sand, clean, then possibly a primer.

    Solenoid Air Control Valve

    "Barksdale Height Control Valve on each side with dump"...Looks good, do you have the part number? There are a few on their website. How about the part number for the solenoid you used? Terrific idea, thanks.

    Solenoid Air Control Valve

    No, I have been using a tire pressure gauge, bleeding by hand. That's why I need to relocate the Schraders or, preferably, automate it. I both want to use my compressor to air up frequently, as well as "flip a switch and forget about it", provided it is not above my pay grade.

    Solenoid Air Control Valve

    Anyone know how to connect an upfitter switch(s) to one or two Solenoid Air Control Valves to adjust the pressure on my air bags from 10psi to 50psi, and back? I positioned the Schrader valves for my Firestone air bags in a location that is a little inconvenient to reach assuming there would...
