RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

The goods http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah69/syntheticinfinity/P1010110_zpssyeobton.jpg or maybe not so good http://i1377.photobucket.com/albums/ah69/syntheticinfinity/P1010112_zpsndnpehd7.jpg but I think this is the worst of them. Those sure look different than mine , the hardware looks the same . The ones I have seen are birch veneer plywood with a 3/8" rabbeted edge . I'd like to see your new dinette configuration when you get to it . Coming right along now .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Does anyone have a source for a bathroom sink faucet. I checked Vintage trailer, they didn't list the original. I guess I can use one single as I have eliminated the hot water line. There are several here with shower diverters . https://www.rvadenver.com/faucets.htm

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Silver , couple of questions . By extending the bed to queen size how did it affect the dinette seating ? A few more pics of the overhang would be nice . I have thought of making a fold up extension for that purpose . Were the cabinet doors replaced at one time ? I have only seen or heard of plywood veneer doors , no particle board ?

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Garry When I removed my side windows to replace the discolored plexi I found the original foam sealant between the frame and skin did not seal adequately . From some paper work I found it seems the original owner had the problem from day one . I found one rivet under the window frame that would not let it lie flat to the skin and ground it down flat , but I don't think that was the whole problem . When reinstalled I used Vulcum caulk instead of the foam tape . I think it fills in better on the uneven surfaces , especially on the front window where you have overlapping panels . If the window is in otherwise good condition I would try removing and reinstalling with some good caulking . Another area of concern is the top rubber seal . They tend to shrink and if they don't overlap the window sash they will leak . These can be replaced without removing the window .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Has anyone identified a source of a replacement front window in the cabover? Thanks, Garry Are you looking for a direct replacement or just something that will fit ? Why are do you want to replace , is it damaged ?

RE: Newer Dodge ram owners

What some are forgetting is that the newer diesels with high pressure common rail direct injection need much cleaner fuel than the diesels of yore to run properly . The fuel today may be cleaner ( debatable )but is still not always clean enough , hence so much conversation on the various diesel forums about fuel filtration .

RE: TC Forum: Senior Members

I'm not the oldest member of the truck camper forum but I might be on 1/25/16 because it is my birthday and I will be 81. I'm now using two steps instead of one to get in the overhead bed but that's because my legs are getting shorter! Don't sell yourself short :B . I tell myself the kids are still growing :W

RE: Cassette toilet/shower

So sorry if it interfered with you supper , we are a few hours later here in the east . Now I get it :S . Thanks for the clear explanation .

RE: Cassette toilet/shower

OK that makes some sense . The flapper valve is built into the toilet , not the cassette . Is there another seal on the cassette so it doesn't spill during removal ?

RE: Running 19.5" wheels; what about the spare?

I believe the common rating is at about 60 mph. I have seen manufacturer site showing a chart with rpms at different speeds, but that was for high-performance tire. Here is more info tire RPM As you can see on this topic, the knowledge about tires rpm is very low and I am meeting lot of performance car owners who have no clue how to match staggered tires. About adding new side-topic after the original post was resolved. That tread would be long dead without them. Think about it. No where in your reference does it mention anything about the speed at which the rev.per mile were calculated .

RE: Cassette toilet/shower

Question for the cassette users , can it be over filled or is there a safety device to prevent it , not just a gauge ? The reason for the question was not to disparage cassette toilets in any way . I was just wondering IF for some reason it was used beyond it's capacity , filled to the point is stays in the bowl , is there any way to relieve it without removing the cassette . It could be quit a mess if you have to pull the tank at that point .

RE: Running 19.5" wheels; what about the spare?

Why invent the wheel again and do it with errors? Low speed rpm are different than rpm at 60 mph. That is why manufacturers list rpm at set speed. RPM by convention is usually reserved for revolutions per minute . Tire manufactures use the term revs.per mile in their specs . I have yet to see a manufacturer who states the speed at which they determined the revs.per mile of a particular tire . If you know of one please identify .

RE: Cassette toilet/shower

I'd like to see pics as well... although I gotta say I think it would have been easier to just buy a small portable tank and it would pretty much be the same thing wouldn't it?My Outfitter came with the Cassette toilet and it works great. The cassette is a lot more unobtrusive when carrying it into a Service Station or other location's restroom to dump then wheeling in a portable dump tank. It kind of looks like a water jug. I was thinking the smaller 5 gallon size like below, doesn't seem much different to me. http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a251/_hedge_/tank_zpsupxa3env.jpg That's what I do , gives the flexibility to have the best of both worlds . Nothing says you have to empty the black tank in one shot .A 5 gal. bucket with lid also works .

RE: Truck Squat

Most trucks sit high at the rear empty . They are sprung to sit level or close to , with their rated load .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Now I can see all my mistakes. We have all experienced that , hindsight is always 20/20 . You are making great progress .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

Finally got to see your video , I only wish I could work that fast , LOL . I didn't use a crimper , I think the thicker aluminum made the difference , the rivets didn't indent at all . Not knowing where to start ,I followed the pattern on the exterior panels and curved both top and bottom . You mentioned leaving the bottom straight , from the looks of your install apparently it makes no difference .

RE: Weight distribution hitch questions

The dead weight of the tongue pries down on the shank/extension. The WD bars pry up. I think we just have a terminology problem. My point is the weight doesn't disappear or is attached differently just because you hookup a WDH. The WDW is designed to push up not down on the hitch, but to do that the force still goes through the hitch. There are no other attachment points to the truck. If you are worried about hitch strength, a WDH isn't going to fix it. The lever arm is still 4 feet. Then why are the hitch and the extension both rated for more weight WITH a WDH ? No , the weight doesn't disappear , It is distributed differently through the attachment point . The upward force is subtracted from the downward force to lessen the downward reaction at that point . Then it is transferred through the frames to the front axle of the tow vehicle and the trailer axles .

RE: Weight distribution hitch questions

Not everyone is trying to tow a 9000lb trailer with a half ton truck or midsize SUV. My Reese Titan receiver is rated to 18,000lbs conventional towing without a WD hitch. Construction equipment on flatbed trailers are almost always towed without WD behind pickup trucks. That's not to say just because they can/do means everyone else should too. If you're going across town to a job site at 35MPH, that's one thing. WD hitches have distinct advantages when you're traveling hundreds of miles at highway speeds. What is the model of your Reese titan ? What could be done and what should be done are two different things . The point is a WD hitch adds to the capacity of almost every hitch I know of .
