    I have absolutely NO interest in reality TV never yet the people involved in it! You're o_O for watching it! Lol

    I have such limited space there. The EZPass transponder is on one side, the other side is open but there's a photo sensor on the back of the rearview mirror for the auto dimming feature that I probably shouldn't have something in front of. That's why I was hoping for something very small that I could fit behind the mirror without blocking the sensor.

    I'll take a look, thanks.

    I put my ez pass on the top corner of the windshield on the passenger side. I don’t acknowledge it exists.

    to be fair. That’s where it was on the Mazda. Still haven’t done the Velcro things for the Tacoma yet. But right now I use tolls so infrequently I just leave it in the glove box and chuck it on my dash when I need it.

    I recently installed a Viofo A129 Duo Pro that I picked up on a lightning sale on Amazon. Very clear 4K front and 1080 rear. No problem reading plates out the front at a decent distance.

    Just got in from the worst tire rotation i’ve ever experienced in my life. The wheels were seized real good to the hubs. I finally resorted to loosening the lugs and doing circles in a parking lot until I heard a thud. I kicked and beat on the wheels with a rubber mallet, used PB Blaster on the hub, put the weight of the truck down with the lugs loose and turned the tires, loosened the lugs and shook the hell out of the truck, the corrosion was pretty impressive. Really pissed a Rodman Ford, I had never seize on the wheels when it was in the black truck and I paid them to swap the wheels when I bought the white truck. There wasn’t even a tiny trace of the never seize so i’m thinking they wiped it all off! In total, today’s tire rotation took about 5 hours, longest of my career.

    Morning y'alls. Just got back from a week off, sledding in Aroostook County, ME. Anything special happen here while I was gone or just a bunch of BS as usual?

    So, did you basically save the world by combining electrical power and recycling? :eek: Take the week off, you earned it!!:thumbsup:

    I experienced the world's longest tire rotation, relearning just how important never seize is on hubs.

    How'd the Ferd tow? You get all your towing stuff set up truck-side?

    Which elec. chainsaw did you go with? I want one myself, but I rarely use a chainsaw, so it will likely wait until I need one.

    Ooooh, you do your own rotations on that beast? First impressions the Ferd doesn't seem to tow as well as the Sierra did! To be fair, I towed the 425 miles to Northern Maine on last Tuesday, likely the same day that is responsible for Jasons chainsaw purchase. It was insanely windy and hands down the worst tow I've ever done in my life. Trailer sway may have saved the truck and trailer near Houlton however. One gust was so bad it pushed me into the other lane and all the lights and bells went crazy and the truck slowed way down. It was so bad that I may have crashed if it didn't do that. Also, when we got off the highway and started up route 1, the roads were a horrific mess. Detours everywhere and solid ice roads due to the huge snowbanks that had melted into the road and then froze solid. Truck and trailer went full sideways at one point. When we arrived in Stockholm we discovered why we were the only vehicle on the roads... they were basically closed to civilian travel! Statement was made on the news to stay home and if you go out you will not be rescued due to down trees and wires and massive snow drifts in the roads. Tow back was much better. I think I need a whole new trip to actually evaluate the truck towing to be fair.

    I did get my brake controller all set up in Forscan. Works beauty! Way cheaper than the $600 that Ford quoted!

    One thing for sure this truck gets worse mileage with my trailer by about a MPG. I got 8.4 avg mpg for the entire 850 mile trip. Sierra consistently got 9.5mpg.

    Yeah, I try to keep the truck out of any shops as much as possible. Usually, tire rotations aren't too bad, maybe an hour. Put the rear axle on stands and use the jack for the front, easy swap except the wheel/tire combo is F-in heavy. This past experience is definitely not what I'm used to.

    I'm surprised your towing mileage is that low for both trucks! I'd expect the Sierra to get better mileage due to the cylinder deactivation but expected both to be around 10-12ish. I'm guessing the high winds would have pushed around anything on that road that day so hopefully that isn't the case every day.

    That's great that you got everything working. I had forgotten you figured out the 12v charging issue.

    My sled trailer is foolishly tall. It's only a 2 place trailer, 14'+5' V nose, but when I pull the big trailer my buddy and I both bought, a 24'+5' V nose with 5 sleds in it, I got more like 11mpg with the Sierra. Easily 2000lbs heavier but better gas for sure. The 2 place is almost 2 feet taller- huge difference apparently. Keep in mind I pull both these trailers at 78mph pretty much constantly- although not in those winds and only dry conditions. If I could manage to stay around 65-70mph I would probably get much better gas.

    I fixed the 12v charging issue alright... I installed a deep cycle in the trailer! Better situation anyway.
