Hey Ken,

The truck year is a 2000 with only 40k miles. I should receive the truck by the end of the week. I am not sure on the rear axle or any other details. I do believe it has a stick shift which should be a challenge.

I do not plan to drive the truck on a regular basis as it will mainly be used to pull our TT. So I can live with the gas mileage.

One of the Texas Boomers, MIKEandAMBER, have an F250 with the V-10. He sure likes it better than the F150, 5.4L he was using to pull his Coachman.

I have never even seen a V-10 with a standard transmission.

We picked up our First Trailer. We decided on a Forrest River Wildwood 26fks. We are going on a little test camp this weekend along the beach!

I have another quick question. I have the trailer pulled in front of my house right now. It will stay there overnight so I can load it up for this weekend. I do not want to unhitch it due to limited space. Is it OK just to leave it on the truck just for 1 night?

Thanks everyone for the advice it was extremely helpful!

It should not hurt it to be hitched. I would disconnect the light/power cord from the truck. If it is wired correctly it should not deplete the truck battery, but I always disconnect to be safe. I also will lower the tongue jack to take a little tension off the rear of the truck. Just remember that the jack is down before you take off.

Also, are you reasonably level if you plan to run the frig while setting on the street?

Ken
