  1. "Trailer Disconnected" message

    May not be an issuer with 7 pin but in the old flat connectors if your ball is rusty (there's a joke in there somewhere..) it will keep the truck from making a good ground connection from truck to trailer. Normal goes away after a few miles/ turns. I do keep a can of contact cleaner in truck...
  2. Power-Up 4.3.2

    Booping right along, got 4.3.3 last night. Did not notice anything messed up on drive into work.
  3. Power-Up 4.3.2

    I got 4.3.2 installed last night... well my phone say I did, lol. I did nothing to make it happen. It's set to do installs at 2 am. Last time I drove it was around 12:30 pm. Driveway is flat so no park break on. Not sure why some have to do so many odd things to get it to down load.
  4. Wish me luck with my new APIM

    My dealer is still tossing parts at mine but I get the feel they will have to replace mine.
  5. Well, the dealer is "fixing" my truck..

    Yeah, not driving it has not been an issue (36,000 miles in 18 months) but I guess the battery could be bad. Just odd that it happened when it did...plus just tossing other random parts at it. Oddly enough the wife's Subaru Outback has this problem but only when it rains hard. My guess is water...
  6. Well, the dealer is "fixing" my truck..

    So I am not opposed to just dropping a new battery in it just to be sure. Not that it get too cold here in NC but better safe than sorry. Is there one that the hive mind recommends? Edit: Okay, would you have to replace both the one under hood and one in cab?
  7. Well, the dealer is "fixing" my truck..

    I guess that could be it. It's got 36,000 on it. But it never had the low battery warning until after they "fixed" it. I did have a doge Ram that went in to dealer to have radio replace under warrenty. It started having weird warning lights and odd readings. They did the same thing, threw parts...
  8. Well, the dealer is "fixing" my truck..

    I have been having an intermittent problem with my power running boards for about 3 months. I got time to leave it with them last Monday. They did a update on the module that controls it. I picked it up and drove home (10 miles) and everything was good... until the next day. After getting about...
  9. Mileage drop after software update

    Winter blend fuel drops my mpg from 23 down to 22. Changing tires dropped it from 22 to 20. At this rate I will be down to what my F250 6.0 got lol

  11. 2023 - Ford is removing heated steering wheels and heated mirrors!!!! UPDATE: Heated Mirrors are now back!!!

    Well, no heated wheel would be a deal breaker for me. My arthritic hands say it's a "must have"
  12. My wedge camper build

    We got one of these "coolers" to use in truck and at our off grid cabin. It has worked really well so far. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B073WTNRJ2/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_search_asin_title?ie=UTF8&th=1 Edit: we use it for dry items- things we don't want to get wet in cooler that has ice. Still...
  13. Poltergeists Anyone?

    I have 2 main ones: Passenger pillar post speaker clicks- must be s short because when you hit it, it stops. Second one, the running boards get almost all the way out when you open the door, but then pull back in. Happens about every 4 or 5th time you open door.
  14. 7.2KW ProPower for Off-Grid Cabin

    Yeah the ground rod in the ground is the difference between our systems. I have no ground rod. But then I am not a "build to code" person anyway. Heck my cabin is a shed like you buy on the side of the road... but upgraded a bit
  15. 7.2KW ProPower for Off-Grid Cabin

    Did you check your generator outlets to see if you are sending 120 or 240 from them?
  16. 7.2KW ProPower for Off-Grid Cabin

    So I looked at the generators you said you used and only one had 240 output I think. The others had 120v 30a plugs. I might be wrong ( wife tells me i am a lot so it must be true) I feel like you might be pushing 240 into 120. Again just going by what I can see from google photos of gennys and...
  17. 7.2KW ProPower for Off-Grid Cabin

    So I am not sure. It depends on what your inverter/charger is made to take as shore power. Mine is set up for 120v.
  18. 7.2KW ProPower for Off-Grid Cabin

    So I do what you are trying to do at my cabin. It appers you have a charger/ inverter simmilar to what I have https://www.amazon.com/AMPINVT-Inverter-Converter-Adjustable-Frequency/dp/B07QYF8THG/ref=sr_1_2?m=A2R8PV9OGM8ZAU&marketplaceID=ATVPDKIKX0DER&qid=1662731602&s=merchant-items&sr=1-2&th=1...
  19. My PowerBoost is essentially dead

    What happens a lot of the time is the best techs are smart enough to go into business for themselves, lol. There might 1-2 guys with the know how at a bigger dealer, but most are part pullers/ pushers- pull what part the computer tells them to and push in a new one. And now with the computers on...
