Subject: FTE 97up - a little "fuse/relay" question

ok, I've got a little situation with my PIAA lights, not bad, but I still
need a little assistance. Heres the situation, currently I have both lights
wired together into the power distribution box in the engine compartment,
location #24. It's a 30 amp relay. Unfortanetly since my lights are
remote-controlled, apparently something keeps switching them on late at
night/early in the morning causing my battery to drain pretty low... Is
there and fuse/relay that I can get to that is 30 amps or over, that only
comes on when I turn on the truck? Radio was one that popped into my mind,
but that is only 5 amps, not nearly what I need... any help is greatly
appreciated.

If your not towing a trailer you could use the trailer tow relay. On the
'99's It's located between the large power distribution box and the brake
fluid reservoir in a smaller holder. It contains two 30 amp relays, Ford P/N
F0AB-14B192-AA. There about $9 each if you don't already have them installed.

It sounds like your on the wrong side of the relay if your lights come on
without the ignition key in the on position.

Just wondering if you have considered the spray on systems. I will have
that done when mine comes in. Reading the different NG's and talking to
some folks I know who have had it done... they are impressed by it. It is
more expensive.. but I don't believe any more expensive then a good
bedliner... I may be a wrong here. I have bought a rubber mat.. a very
heavy duty one... I believe by Rubbermaid or somesuch.. and it was great..
but didn't protect the bed walls.... This spray on stuff is about 1/8" +
thick and bonds tightly to the bed... not affected by the sun etc......

Most RV dealers have them. I just bought one for my '99 F350 SC Long Bed. It
was $84. I'm using it for my camper. It fits great. Not sure who the
manufacturer is. Try calling a few RV dealers who sell campers.

It's a truck. Trucks get scratched... I'm ok with that - but I get tried
of items flying all over the bed.

Thanks for the comments!

Well sure. But if it's painted metal, that scratch means it will
start rusting right now.

If you're gonna carry stuff in your truck, you probably want a
bedliner of some kind. I bought an attachable one from the Ford
dealer. It's OK, but if I had it to do again, I'd get a Rhino
spray-on one, I think.

Later,
Alan

Subject: FTE 97up - RE: High RPMs

My 97 f150 with a 5.4 revs high when I first start it. It will rev to about
1900 then trickle down to about 800. The colder it is outside the slower it
comes back to idle. All the overhead cam engines rev high off the start. My
best friends 98 cobra sounds like he is all over the gas when he cranks up
but it revs on its own to around 2300-rpms. So as long as its not just
constantly idling high I would not worry about it.

Like i always say, If you hate it so much, why do you stick around? And as
for the illegal immigrants, if there weren't any that California "healthy"
vegetable and fruit diet, and almost everything else for that matter, would
probably be twice as expensive as it already is. And they also have to pay
taxes on almost everything except for income tax. Plus work for 2-3 dollars
an hour just so that everyone else doesn't have to pay "outrageous" prices
to have their lawns in a manicured state. Just a little bit of info the
government and the WASP's don't like to talk about.
