6.0 left me stranded again

I was coming back from North Carolina to Orlando down I75 and truck shut off while doing 65 mph. I was towing a 5th wheel also for the first time. Tow company charged me $300 to tow 5th wheel 3 miles and had AAA for truck. To make a long story short it cost me $1000 to get truck and 5th wheel back to Orlando and another $800 to fix truck. I do incredible maintenance to truck but this is 4th time it's left me stranded on side of interstate out of state. This time it was the IPR and a couple of other small things. Problem is i am still blowing coolant from degas cap. I just did ARP studs and Ford head gaskets 2 years ago (35000 miles ago) Ford will not work with me at all with this problem. Anybody have any ideas?

If you do a lot of towing with your 5th I'd suggest dumping AAA and getting Coach-Net. They will tow both trailer and truck better than AAA.

or just upgrade your AAA to RV it gets truck and trailer to a destination of your choice within 100 miles up to three times a year
I have Myself and My Wife on it and it covers us in any vehicle We are in

about 120 bucks a year

EDIT I just looked its 222.00 a year for both of us or 165.00 for a single member ,, I have work pay for it

06 KR 4x4 BPD remote OEM Oil cooler /EGR cooler/water pump6 phase FICM , ARP studs,
Rize 4 link Toyo 37" camper modified special
For a truly terrible firearm experience I suggest Taurus

Problem with the AAA RV coverage is that it's by zone. You may get coverage in your area of the country but in others your out of luck. Coach-Net is country wide and covers everything your drive.

It happened last Sunday. The end of the Thanksgiving weekend. I put a gauge on the cooling system today and it pretty much stayed at 16 or 17 psi, while still puking coolant. I've tried to contact Ford and went through about 3 levels of departments with no luck. With the money that I've spent on this truck I feel I should get some type of assistance from Ford!!!

I was on my way back from Georgia Monday night and past a 6.0 hooked to a camper on the side of 75 outside of Ocala. That was the 3rd 6.0 i had seen on my round trip on the side of the road. I hate that for you guys.

Yes new cap and degas bottle. Something that concerns me is that the mechanic at Ford said that the coolant filter could be causing back pressure in the system and making it puke
