    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...

    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...

    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

    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...

    Differential Expert Advice

    The clowns who installed my Carli lift and Toyo tires can't follow their own work order...installing four Toyo AT2 35x12.5R18 F Load tires instead of five, to replace my LT275/70Rx18E BSW A/T's on the factory 18" rims. So in the event of a flat my spare will be traveling 5% less far than the...

    On board Air Quick-disconnect

    I am planning on an Extreme Outback Magnum compressor for my F-350 but need a good location for the air quick-disconnect. My camper will extend over the rear preventing a license plate location, so I am thinking of drilling the side of the bumper and mounting a disconnect there. Any better...

    The world of fuses has become pretty complicated

    I thought I would get a spare fuse kit for my new F350, but the world of fuses has become pretty complicated, with mini, maxi, micro2, micro3, J-case, J-case Low Profile and M-case. Can anyone suggest a kit that includes the combination that I might need? Possibly Amazon or maybe Ford?

    4 Questions: 377 amp alternator charging LiPo system

    Soon I am taking delivery of a 2019 F350 with 377 amps output (twin alternators, twin batteries). I plan to connect a starter battery (with a PAC 500-amp isolator) to two 100 amp/hour Battleborn house batteries in my slide-in TC using 17 feet of 1/0 cable, and no B2B charger (since Battleborn...

    Locker on the front, or a winch?

    I think it was Buliwyf that said it's so easy to put a locker on the front of a SuperDuty that it would be shame not to do it. I travel alone in the desert so self-recovery is intimidating, and it occurred to me that a locking front would add some comfort without a lot of weight, and be more...

    Is it possible to calculate payload?

    Ordering an F350, there are seven different payload categories for a 164" WB, SCLB4x4SRW. The GVWR is surely related to snowplow pkg, etc options, but how do I know in advance what is my GVWR when ordering the truck? MAX GVWR PAYLOAD 9,900 3,590 10,000 3,690 10,300 3,990 10,800 4,440...

    Next Question: Diesel vs. Gas F350

    For someone who seldom expects to tow this would seem a no-brainer, but consider the following arguments: The diesel offers extended range, which has several advantages. That range really helps when a few hours of slow off-road are involved with the 34 gallon tank in the SCab. I know because I...

    Power Take Off

    One option in ordering a new F350 is a PTO. Is there any reason to consider this for an overland vehicle? Thanks in advance.

    Bigger or Second Alternator?

    I cannot find this discussed anywhere. While there is extensive discussion of solar panels, batteries and generators, how useful is a bigger or second alternator? Would that be useful to charge house batteries faster? Or only to reduce load while running A/C or other appliances? I seldom use...

    F-350 Air Springs

    I am ordering an F-350 RC or SC SRW 4WD soon for 2019 and would like to improve the ride both on the street and on washboard dirt roads. What is/are the best modifications: 1) Larger tire/wheels, 2) Air Springs, or 3) Kelderman 4-Link Rear Air Suspension in the rear? 4) How about Kelderman...

    Fiberglass advice needed

    I would like advice on what type of epoxy, fabric and how many layers I need to build a water tank about 56” long x 20” wide x 10” high. I removed the rear seats from my F350 Supercab and want to build about a 40 gallon water tank that will conform to the floor. I will pump the water into my...
