Expert Answers about Ford F-250 and F-350 Super Duty


  • Trailer Leaf Spring Bushings with 9/16 Inner Diameter and 3/4 Outer Diameter
  • There can be some slight measurement differences among the various bushings of the same part number. So if you went with a 9/16 inner and 3/4 outer, like # SP05-060, then it will work though it is possible that the fit will be tighter for some than others especially since there are tolerances in the spring eyes as well.

  • Suspension Enhancement Recommendation for a 2001 Ford F-250 Carrying Heavy Truck Bed Camper
  • For your application I would recommend the Super Springs part # SSR-101-47-2 as it is designed for heavy loads carried in the truck bed like your 3,000 lb camper and because it is also works very well to reduce the sway that you have as well. This would be your best option.

  • Recommended Air Helper Springs For 2003 Ford F-350
  • The Tow Ready No-Drill Mount Bracket, part # 18140 is designed to install on a trailer hitch and provide a mounting base for a trailer connector. This is not included in the Firestone Ride-Rite Air Helper Springs, part # F2550. If you are looking for a trailer connector for the back of your F-350 I recommend the Draw-Tite Trailer Harness, part # 18252. The # F2550 is a confirmed fit for your F-350 truck. This system is designed to reduce the strain on your suspension when you are...

Make sure that the canopy is rated for this application and that it has the weight carrying capacity to hold the load you want to put on it.

  • How To find Replacement Pin Box On Jayco Fifth Wheel Trailer
  • If you do not have a sticker or plate on your pin box I have attached a link to a helpful article that can help you out.

You can take some of the measurements mentioned in the article and then use those numbers to match up the make and model pin box you have on your trailer. If you get those measurements and want to let me know what you come up with I will be happy to find the replacement pin box that...

  • Air Lift Suspension Enhancement and Compressor Kit Fit for a 2012 Ford F-250
  • The Air Lift air bag kit part # AL88396 that you referenced is a confirmed fit for your 2012 Ford F-250/350. The compressor kit part # AL25870 that you referenced would work great to inflate the bags as well. That being said, any air compressor could inflate the bags. Including an emergency compressor. I am sure you know this already, but using an emergency compressor would be much slower and much less convenient.

  • Programmer and Monitor Recommendation for a 2006 Ford F-250
  • The SCT Livewire # SCT5015P is a popular programmer/monitor for your 2006 Ford F-250 and it features a touch screen interface. For the features that it has it is a fantastic value for the price. It features pre-loaded, vehicle-specific programs but also supports custom tunes and you can monitor various aspects of vehicle performance.

  • Firestone or Air Lift Suspension Air Bag Kit for 2011 Ford F-250
  • We generally recommend the Firestone kits over the Air Lift as they attachment used between the rubber and the metal of the air springs is much more solid. I would recommend the part # F2550 for your 2011 Ford F-350. The wireless compressor kit part # AL72000 that you referenced would make an excellent compressor kit that we would highly recommend. The compressor kit brands can work with other brand air bags too. I attached install videos for both kits for you to check out as well.

  • Should the Blue Wire of a Brake Controller have Voltage
  • The blue wire of your brake controller wiring isn't going to have voltage on it unless you have a brake controller connected to it with either the manual override lever pulled or with the brakes applied. This is the circuit that the controller uses to carry the brake signal back to the 7-way. I attached a couple help articles on troubleshooting brake controllers for you to check out as well.

  • Recommended Custom Towing Mirrors For 2010 Ford F-250
  • The custom towing mirrors I recommend for your 2010 F-250 are part # CM11900. These do not extend as they are a slip-on mirror. These mirrors are designed to fit manual, power, heated and non-heated mirrors. The CIPA Custom Extendable Towing Mirrors, part # CM17590-91 you referenced are designed to fit 2007 - 2013 Toyota Tundra only and will not fit a Ford truck. The arms of the mirror are what extends on the # CM17590-91.

  • Firestone Ride-Rite Air Bags For 2002 Ford F-350 with 3 inch Lift and Fifth Wheel Rails
  • The correct Firestone Ride Rite Kit for your 2002 Ford F-250 is the part # F2550. This kit is compatible with fifth wheel rails as well so it would fit with your current rail kit. Normally we don't recommend suspension enhancement for vehicles with suspension that needs work though. The best recommendation I can make is to replace the springs and then use the 3 inch blocks part # F2368 but if for some reason your suspension only really had a net of 2 inches of lift you would need the...

  • Recommended Trailer Tire to Replace ST235/80R16
  • In your tire size of 235/80R16 I would highly recommend the Taskmaster part # TTWTRTM2358016E. This tire is the right size, has a capacity of 3,520 lbs at 80 psi which would be more than what your trailer would need, has great reviews from our customers, but mainly because unlike most trailer tires these are rated for up to 81 mph. Most are only rated for 65 which exceeding this rating can cause failure as well. We recommend ST tires over LT tires for trailers for the reasons you listed....

  • Determining Correct Air-Ride Pin Box To Replace Sidewinder on 2007 Keystone Everest 345S
  • In order to know which model Flex Air you'd need, we'll need to know either the part number of the original pin box or the part number of the Sidewinder. Closely examine the Sidewinder for a part number. If you can't find a part number, we can figure out which one it is by measuring the spacing of the bolts used to connect the Sidewinder to the fifth wheel. I'll link you to an FAQ article that explains how to measure the center to center bolt hole spacing. If you scroll further down...

  • 5th Wheel Trailer Hitch and Installation Kit for a 2010 Ford F-250 with Air Bags
  • A lot is going to depend on the air bags that you have installed on your 2010 Ford F-150. Take a look at where the upper air bag brackets attach to the frame on your truck. If the brackets are on the inboard side of the frame or on the bottoms of the frame then it won't be a problem because 5th wheel brackets will install primarily on the outboard sides of the frame. For an installation kit I recommend Reese kit # RP56005-53. It will be the easiest to install with the least amount of...

  • Brake Controller Recommendation for a 2007 Monaco Diplomat
  • The most popular and reliable proportional brake controllers we offer is the Prodigy P2 # 90885 from Tekonsha, which you referenced. We do not offer a quick-connect brake controller harness for use with Roadmaster chassis-based motor homes so your installation will be a hard-wire application. If your Monaco is already equipped with a 7-way connector at the rear (which I expect) you will need the wiring kit # 5506 to install the P2. If you do not have the 7-way then instead you will...

  • Can CTEK D250S Dual part # CTEKD250S Be Used with 7-Way 12 volt and Solar Panel to Charge Battery
  • A solar panel can be wired to the CTEK D250S Dual part # CTEKD250S that you referenced that could then charge a battery. Running your 12 volt circuit to the CTEK from the 7-way would also work as well. This charger would act as a isolation circuit and would not allow your vehicle battery to drain from the trailer battery. Also, since your 12 volt circuit isn't active when the vehicle is off you wouldn't need to worry about that.

  • Install Harness to Use to Install Draw Tite Activator in a 2001 Ford F-250

  • Yes, the Timbren suspension enhancement hollow rubber springs will help stabilize and level your 2004 Ford F-250 Super Duty as well as improve roll stability side to side. The added perk is they are easy to install and require no maintenance. For your 4 wheel drive model the recommended kit for the rear axle is # TFR250SDE (no snow plow equipment). The kit designed for the front axle is # TFF350SD4. I have linked an installation video of the rear kit being installed on a similar vehicle...

  • Does Trailer Landing Gear Motor Have to Be Disconnected from Truck to Operate
  • You wouldn't want to be lifting up your trailer landing gear with the trailer still coupled to your truck as that would make the landing gear try to lift up the rear of your truck as well. Typically, the landing gear motor would be powered by the battery on the trailer. The battery would be maintained by the 12-volt circuit from the 7-way trailer connector. What this means is that the trailer wiring would not have to be connected to the truck for the jacks to run either.

  • Why Do Fifth Wheel Rail Kits Only Show Where to Install Rear Rail
  • The front rail is easy to place once you have the rear fifth wheel rail placed. What you have to do is use the hitch to place the front rail. Basically you would set the hitch in the rear rail after placing it where it belongs and then set the front mounting tabs of the fifth wheel hitch into the front rail and wherever the rail ends up in the truck bed is where you would need to mount it. This ensures that the hitch fits the rails the best without any binding.

  • Distance Between Mounting Slots of Demco 5th Wheel Base Rails

  • Towing a 5th Wheel Trailer with Factory Gooseneck Hitch in a 2006 Ford F-350
  • I don't know who made the OEM gooseneck hitch for Ford in 2006 but you will be able to tow a 5th wheel trailer without having to add a different hitch. There are adapters that you can use instead. For example one of the more popular options is the Anderson Ultimate 5th wheel connection, # AM3225. I have linked a video review of this adapter for you. Another option is to use a Reese Goose Box. There are a few different ones available and they fit specific 5th wheel trailer pin boxes: #...

  • For your 2008 Ford F-250 short bed that has the TracRac SR Ladder Rack part # TA21510-03 installed you would want the BAKFlip G2 Hard Tonneau Cover # BAK26310 as it is a fold up tonneau cover that mounts to the inside of the bed rails so it would be compatible with the TracRac ladder rack you have that mounts to the top of the bed rails. For a more economical option we have the TruXedo Deuce part # TX769101.

  • You might not need a hitch extender or weight distribution. It is possible that a long ball mount will have the length needed to provide clearance for towing the trailer. Ball mount # 40331 measures 9-1/4 inches from the center of the pin hole to the center of the ball hole. It is rated for 16,000 pounds gross trailer weight and it has a 3 inch rise or 4 inch drop.

  • Recommended Transportation of Motorcycle and Boat Trailer with a 2003 Ford F-350 Long Bed Diesel

Then tow your boat trailer with a ball mount and ball. To determine the correct ball mount needed for your trailer you will need to take a few quick measurements.

Making sure the moving parts are cleaned and lubricated per the manual is the first step I recommend taking. I have linked the manual for you.

This motor is intended for 8K landing gear kit # RVLG-8000. I suggest checking both the hot and ground connections for...

The install of this is pretty universal as the connector on this harness is very universal and seen on most trucks. I attached an install video that shows the harness being installed on a 2000 Ford F-250 for you to check out. The truck is older but the process is the same.

  • Will a Boost Fooler, Boost Tube, and TransCommand Work on a 2002 Ford Diesel with Superchips
  • The boost foolers are designed to work with programmers like the SuperChips part # SU1845 since this programmer reprograms the PCM and is not a chip style programmer that plugs into the MAP sensor. Boost tubes hold the wastegate closed a bit longer allowing more boost to build at high RPMs so it should also work with the SuperChips. SuperChips actually were one of the first programmers back in the day to start using the boost tubes with their programmers. The Banks TransCommand will...

  • Does Ford Rail Kit Adapter part # RP30156 Add Movement to Hitch Setup
  • When setup and installed properly the Reese Elite Ford Rail Kit adapter part# RP30156 would not add movement or noise ("chucking"), to your fifth wheel setup. It would essentially be just as quiet as a set of industry standard fifth wheel rails. This would work well with the Reese Slider Hitch part # RP30084 that you also referenced. Since you have a short bed truck you would need a slider hitch allow you to make tight turns without cab interference.

  • Transmission coolers are not vehicle specific so you can install cooler # D13105 in your 2004 Ford F-250 with the 5.4 liter motor. To avoid having to cut and flare lines I also recommend adding fitting # D13025. You can use this supplement cooler with the factory cooler already on your truck. The flow of the transmission cooler will go first to the factory cooler, from there to the supplemental cooler, and then back to the transmission.

  • Will Firestone Air Bag Helper Springs Fit a 2008 Ford F-350 with 4 Inch Lift

  • Recommended Fifth Wheel Hitch For 2012 Ford F-350 With Factory Rail Kit Installed
  • If your F-350 has the factory rail kit installed it will either have the four pucks in the bed or the gooseneck ball hole in the bed. Or, it can have both of them. With the factory rail kit you can tow when you need to and when you aren't you have the benefit of an open bed for carrying other cargo. If you have the four pucks in the bed there will probably be rubber or plastic caps over the holes. For a fifth wheel hitch that is designed to work with the puck system I recommend the...

  • Towing 5th Wheel Trailer Using Lifted 2011 Ford F250
  • Lifted trucks aren't good tow vehicles for fifth wheel trailers for a couple of reasons. Adding the lift kit could have an impact on the towing capacity of the vehicle. I'd recommend contacting the manufacturer of the lift kit to find out what adding the kit has done to the truck's towing capacity. Secondly and probably more importantly, the stock tires on your truck were about 32 inches in diameter. Your 37's have added 5 inches in tire height or a 2-1/2 inch increase in ride height....

For the standard rack, I recommend the Thule AeroBlade system made up of # THARB60 (qty 2), # TH480R, and # THKIT1508.

  • Where Can Scissor Jacks Be Mounted On 2014 Evergreen Bay Hill Fifth Wheel Trailer
