RE: Bone yard

You could probably have that pane replaced at a glass shop . Worth looking in to .

RE: Truck camper and beach camping Cape Cod

That was quit the trip Caysea , two extremes of the country , FL to AK . Question for those familiar with Cape Cod beaches . On their web site the tire info is a little confusing . I have a dually with 235/85/16 . Do they met the minimum required tire size ?

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Howdy! Garry did you ever finish the camper trailer? I have a new need. Where do I carry the boat? Yes, need is indeed the mother of invention! The problem with a trailer and a john boat is the hitch would need to be long to come from under the campers porch. I could strap something smaller across the top. That seems pretty high. Inflatable is interesting. Maybe a kayak stored inside the camper. That really gets in the way traveling. Ideas? Here's one idea http://www.orukayak.com/collections/kayaks

RE: So the project begins

http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah24/ebnjoe/20160818_193541_zpsegzk6kp8.jpg http://i1376.photobucket.com/albums/ah24/ebnjoe/20160818_193608_zpssbt7hx1h.jpg I still need to cut the bolts down but I think this about does it for this corner. Kindest regards Ed If you don't mind a few suggestions . Since you really don't know the true condition of the wings I would try to maximize the strengthening of the jack areas . One is to orient the 2x10 front to back and make it long enough to span the entire opening above . That opening is a weak spot for a jack . Second would be to use a full steel plate inside instead of washers , in affect , sandwiching the wing plywood between two steel plates . As you mentioned , a corner brace would not hurt . Your pictures show the bottom wood member across the opening is already cracked . Good luck

RE: Fresh Water Tank Leaking Badly!

Before you condemn the tank check the hose from the tank to the pump , especially at the end connections . Also check the tank drain if it has one .

RE: Using a 48" Extension on hitch

Only a Superhitch is engineered and DOT approved to run a hitch extension. ....I now step off my soap box. Not to question your experience , or TorkLift integrity , but I could not find any reference to DOT approval on their website . Nor have I seen Dot approval for any other tow hitch brand. If you have more information please share , thanks .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

65Avion , It looks like you are in pretty good shape with that one . Looks good on that old Ford . Interesting floor plan , it was called "Custom Front Dinette " , not too many like it .

RE: Front carrier motorcycle

I've carried my CT110 up front for years with no problems, it weighs 200lb, my question is I want to carry a heavier bike that weighs 300lb. Now I know a diesel is front heavy anyway. Does anybody see any problem carrying the more weight up front? I know it's only another 100lbs but where do you draw the line? The line is drawn by the the front axle capacity . Just for reference , all winter I carry a 1000# snow plow up front .

RE: Lance 1010 on 3500 SRW?

Even if wet weight is accurate that is still not camping weight . There should be several here that have that same model and give actual weights .

RE: 2015 Summer Journey, Canadian Crossing, part 6

Thanks for taking the time to report on your trip . Everyone experience of the great north is different and it's so nice to read them all.

RE: 7.3L to 6.7L comparison

Maybe dbhhcolor needs to clarify . A Diesel Pusher s a rear engine diesel motorhome or bus . Is that what you are looking at ?

RE: Questions: 2015 F250 Capacity Enhancements.

what do I need to know to find out exactly what I have or did you mean use what I've done so far and then think about changes? Your local Ford dealer should be able to tell you every option your truck came with from the factory by the vin number . It looks to me that the tires are the limiting factor for the RAWR .

RE: Happijac or Torklift Turnbuckles?

NEOK , did you happen to check the tension indicators after the incident ? It would be interesting to know how much if any they changed with that movement .

RE: 7.3L to 6.7L comparison

My 2011 F-250 split it's rad at 41000 miles. I left the dealership $2000 poorer. Holy smokes! $2000 for a radiator . Higher mileage is not always a bad thing . It depends more on maintenance and where the vehicle lived it's life . Here in the NE a 10 year old vehicle with low miles that was stored outdoors can be a money pit . Things tend to freeze up or rot from non use , brakes , brake lines , fuel lines , bearings etc. . In the SW not so much .

RE: Happijac or Torklift Turnbuckles?

Question: Is it recommended to have the spring loaded turnbuckles on the rear tie down connection points of a TC or are spring loaded turnbuckles used only on the front? Thanks. LakesideMy personal opinion says it makes no difference, but I do suggest to follow the manufactures recommendation. I really do not recall, but I think the manufacture recommends the spring tie downs in the front. Do verify if this is true. I should point out, you can tighten them to the point the spring is totally compressed or the rubber bumper is totally compressed. This raises the question, how do you know when you have 300 lbs pressure? I think the answer is to follow the manufactures instructions, and think carefully as to what is the purpose of tie downs. Wayne On the TL anchor guards , which are the same as the HJ , the preload adjustment is 1/4" off the O-ring . This can easily be done by turning the barrel by hand and is no where near 300# . The 300# is probably the safe working load of the open hook ends , or possibly the full compression of the springs . I need to find someone with a big enough hook scale . :)

RE: Tork Lift tie downs suggestions

I agree , take enough material off that it will slide in and out by hand even after painting ( this is a good place for POR 15 , it's very hard ). If you are using a BFH to put it in , you know you will need one to get it out .There is no need for it to fit tight , the turnbuckles will keep the tension on it . Instead of grease you might try some Fluid Film in the female end , still a little messy but not as bad as grease . If you can cap the female end between uses all the better . Good luck

RE: LED Bulbs

I got a 10 pack from ebay $13.95 . Sorry computer won't post the link , the sellers name is yitamotor . Has been a year and so far so good . I just think $15 a bulb is a rip off . At that price I could buy an extra battery or some solar . I have yet to see bulbs that state " made in USA" .Your choice to make. My choice was M4 Products. Isn't it nice that all of us can make our own choices! :@ I agree , it is nice that there are choices . I looked long and hard at M4 products . From what I read they have a good product line . Only time will tell if I made the right choice . It is my understanding that M4 is a seller and do not make any of their products . Since you have some , does it say where they are made ?

RE: Can we talk toilet paper?

I am not sure why one would choose to use that method in a RV since the blackwater tank is simply a holding tank to later be dumped into a proper sewer system than can handle paper, etc. There are some key elements in this sentence . Yes the blackwater tank is a simple holding tank , almost anything that goes down the toilet will come out the hose , then it is someone else's problem . Proper sewer system . Municipal treatment plant , rural septic system ( most campgrounds , rest stops , and rural homes) pit toilet . Only the first will filter out wipes , napkins , etc. Please think of what happens down the line . This is not aimed at Blueglide or anyone else in particular .

RE: Camper Battery Under Truck Hood

Just FYI, 12.3V is 30 percent, which is more than you generally want to discharge a lead acid battery. I'm confused , is that 30 percent SOC , or 30 percent used . All my charts say 12.3v @ 70 degrees would be 75 percent SOC .
