I was under the impression that the source of most, if not all, issues with the 6.0 and 6.4 PS were due to the Ford designed and added (against the advice of Navistar) components. Is this incorrect?
With regard to NYS licensing requirements mentioned earlier, I recently found this:NYS License Classes
If I'm reading it right, if I wanted to pull a 5er greater than 10,000 lbs and if my GCWR is greater than 26,000, I would need a class A.
There is an RV endorsement (R) available for RVs greater than 26,000 lbs, but I don't think it would apply to a combination rig, only to single unit RVs (class A, B, or C). Unless of course I'm interpreting it wrong.
So if I were to use an HDT converted and registered in NYS as a motorhome (something I don't even know if it's possible) to pull a heavy 5er, I believe NY would still require me to have a Class A license due to the GCWR.
Seems like NYS has no problem with letting someone with a standard class D license tow a 25,000# trailer with a 1000# TV, providing you could find a TV rated to tow that much. Granted that's an extreme example, but I think you see what I getting at. So much for putting safety first.
