RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 12. Waste Water

I tend to agree with Garry on the traps , grey water can get pretty rank. Fernco also makes rubber traps if you need/want something removable . Here is an alternative for a waterless trap . http://www.dyersonline.com/hepvo-1-1-2-waterless-trap.html?utm_medium=shoppingengine&utm_source=googlebase&gclid=CLqcwtPwhMQCFUMV7Aod2xkA3w

RE: Cost to setup Truck

Here is an old thread from TCU on the same subject for added info. http://www.rv.net/forum/Index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/16980901.cfm

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

The Tempro 635 is grey , close to faded anodize . Both Parbond and Tempro are compatible with aluminum and good products . Be aware that Tempro does have a shelf life of less than a year ,according to manufacturer , not sure about Parbond , so don't over order . I have used unopened tubes more than 2 years old and found no problem , YMMV :)

RE: Everything Was Going So Well.....Until It Wasn't

That sick feeling of a slow slide , once experienced , is never forgotten . Many of us feel your pain . There is one trick I've learned after many years of plowing . In situations like your drive , going down a slippery slope , you have better control in neutral going slow .With a high torque engine going very slow the rear wheels are still trying to drive even at idle . If it's slick enough the rear wheels will spin and the the rear goes sideways . In drive the front brakes tend to lock up first and there goes the steering . It's not a cure all but it helps a lot . Best of luck with the repair and kudos for being brave enough to post .

RE: TL Derringer handles

The only problem I see with that setup is they are not SS . I wonder how they will hold up on our wonderfully salted roads when you take the TC skiing ?

RE: Hitch extender for Motorcycle ??

I cannot fathom how one would use a WD hitch with a cargo/motorcycle carrier , which is what the OP was asking about . It is simply dead weight and you need to use the lower rating for the extension .

RE: Our custom true flatbed truck camper build thread

They are wired in series and run on a 12V battery (so technically each winch gets about 6V and runs slower, which it does). Could you explain this to a dummy . I always thought running a motor at low volts was not good for the motor .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Have any of you been successful insuring your Avion and if so how did you establish value ?

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Garry , finally got around to checking those gear cranks , they have HEHR stamped in them .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Garry , are you replacing the crank gears with Hehr parts or aftermarket ? There are several places that sell Hehr parts . All my originals are still working . The side and front windows are not jalousie but have operating panes at the bottom . The bath is a jalousie like yours. My Crank gear operators are labled as "Phillips" brand. Is that OEM? Where have you found Hehr operators? Thanks! Garry I don't know if Phillps is original , I'll check mine tomorrow when it's light out , I don't think so . Here are two places that carry Hehr parts , you might call to verify they are OEM . http://www.parkin-acc.com/page3.html http://www.pellandent.com/RV_Products_List.aspx?CategoryID=305

RE: Alignment Question

For me, I decided 200 pounds is just not much weight, so I ignore it and align without the TC. If I were concerned, I would have the front aligned without the TC. I would put a basket in the front, and load it with 200 pounds of sand, and have them put it back on the machine to see if there was any change. Obviously, you would have to weigh your front and rear axles. I agree that 200#+or- on an average 4000# front end isn't going to affect the alignment that much , mostly the camber but that is only one factor . The rear end being high , low or level in relation to the front end will affect the caster angle which in turn affects the steering stability at speed .

RE: Alignment Question

That is a good question , one I've pondered myself . I have asked 4 different alignment shops and got 4 different answers . What I have done is compromise and loaded the truck approximately half way so it wouldn't be off too much either way . It also depends on how many inches the back end squats when loaded , that's what changes the geometry . Another thing to keep in mind is not the amount of time it is loaded but the mileage . It could be loaded 50% of the time but that might only represent 10% of the mileage , or vice versa . Another wild card is if the original specs already take into account it will be fully loaded . Haven't found anyone to answer that yet either .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Ticki2, the tempered glass flexes about the same as the acrylic in bench tests in my shop. It remains to be seen if it will flex when reinstalled in the frames. I am waiting on the seals and gaskets from VTS before I can take this step. I noticed when I was removing the windows from the shell that the smaller fixed panes, on the right side in my C11, had a bit of curve in them, while the larger panes on the left side did not. I also noticed that, once removed from their frames, none of the fixed panes had any memory curve to them. I have calculated the curve to be about 1/4" in 13". Basically, I'm not worrying about it - if they curve a bit, great. If not, they're short enough to have little effect on the overall appearance. Onward! Dick I hate to be a doubting Thomas here but even with the plexiglass the clecos weren't strong enough to bend it enough to conform to the curvature of the side panels 100%. I had to work my way up with the rivets to pull it in enough to be tight . I'm speaking of the upper fixed panes . The lower ones were flat . I wonder how the glass will react being in constant tension ? In any event I hope it works for you , if it does it will give us all another option .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

I have taken out all the windows and replaced all the old acrylic with 1/8" clear tempered glass. I found I could easily order it from my local glass shop. Onward! Dick How did you get the tempered glass to curve in the large upper fixed panes ?

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

After almost breaking my nose last time I raised the hood on my 2006 Dodge Ram CTD to check the fluids the hood came crashing down banging the middle of my forehead just between eyebrows leaving me with a good size bump. Decided to replace the hood support struts. Ordered them from local Dodge dealer who had the best price. 71.00 dollars for a pair including shipping. Easy install in 10 minutes. Works like new now. Do not let any shop talk into doing it. It was just to easy. Youtube video showed me how!!http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac280/billyray50/tn_zpsabc47d50.jpg http://i907.photobucket.com/albums/ac280/billyray50/photo_zpsa01c4e8e.jpg width=640 When did Dodge eliminate the hood springs ? Those struts look like they would always be in the way for working under hood .
