That's what I used on those seams on our Roo. 6" wide on those seams and 4" wide everywhere else. I'm hoping to put Eternabond on our current TT next year.

usually I would have a list, however today after my afternoon walk to the lake , I only did one thing, put out the electric awning. I simply use a couple ratchet straps and secure the 2 ends to the ground (water pipe and picnic table right now) however when I locate the spiral stakes and springs that came with this kit I originally had bought for my old RV standard awning, I will secure properly. for now this has been working thru 25 mph wind gusts no problem, due to the awning issue I already had with this awning I really don't want to push it.

Are you using the awning poles sold here on this forum?

Your electric awning arms won't survive being tied down without them.

In the spirit of not inferring that the poles sold by Turbs are the only solution, I used professional grade telescoping painter poles that have worked great for a year now...even two weeks ago in 35 mph winds. Sorry Turbs.

I made mine from easy-up canopy poles. Never have to remove them because they retract and are secured the same way as the Turbs brand.

At some point during every day you suddenly realize nothing else productive is going to happen the rest of that day. For me, it usually occurs around 9 am.

Added a siphon line before fresh water pump for winterizing. Cleaned up camper. Made some repairs to a few areas of poor workmanship.

If you use your 6.0 doing heavy work all the time and religiously maintain it you may never have a problem but if you drive it as a daily road vehicle it may build up soot in the EGR cooler thereby causing the coolant to boil off releasing the additives within it that clog the oil cooler. When the oil cooler clogs the engine temp will rise causing excessive engine heat which leads to several part failures up to blown head gaskets and it can become very expensive.

Many 6.0 owners do one of two things, EGR delete or bulletproofing. the first removes the emission parts and solves the immediate problem but may be illegal and your state may not allow it to be registered or sold to another party. The second is replacing the problem parts with improved ones that hopefully prevent the failures. Of course "chipping" the system for performance negates the preventative work because the engine wasn't designed to handle the overload.

The importance of EOT (engine oil temp) and ECT (engine coolant temp) is when you're traveling at average highway speeds you want those temps to be as close together as possible showing the EGR, EGR cooler and oil cooler are working correctly. If they are consistently 15 degrees apart or more, it is an indication that your oil cooler is clogged, (as well as the other components) therefore not working correctly and you may shortly suffer a catastrophic "expensive" failure.

Most 6.0 owners after having the corrections or improvements made should have a 500,000 mile vehicle and would not trade their vehicle in for any other but they usually stay diligent in monitoring it.

I hope this has enlightened you?

EDIT: I see 05CrewDually has posted while I was typing. I'll leave mine up as well.
Sure am glad I have a 7.3 with no emissions stuff on it.....lol

Me too!

In stock form it doesn't have the most horsepower, but it's bullet-proof dependable now that we have a good Cam Position Sensor (CPS).

I'll take reliability every time!

That's not to say that the six-OH can't be made into a very reliable motor, too. Only takes about $10,000, but many say it is well worth it to have what you end up with.

So will I and corrosion isn't an issue with me. Mine 'sleeps' all winter. Been through a few CPS sensors, I carry a spare in the glove compartment with a socket and wrench....just in case.

Mine isn't quite stock. Pretty close though. Got the delete pedestal and a Banks quick spool turbo. Yanked the stock oil breather off and put on a road draft tube. I have the Banks chip but I never installed it. Mine runs fine without the chip...and I have a straight through exhaust too.

Should be the last truck I ever buy.

Gonna install a front Class 5 receiver this winter so I can pin my winch on.

Great truck. Too bad it rides like a lumber wagon empty. Must be that huge stack of leaf springs on each end.....

Checked torque on all the lug nuts 110#/ft, adjusted brakes and finally got the new lights on the flagpole.

I didn't do anything to our Sandpiper, but I did help neighbor replace the flooring in his 14 ft utility trailor.
