RE: Manufacturer Says this is OK

From the picture that bed looks shorter than a standard 6' bed .

RE: Arctic Fox Electrical Issue

If the batteries are good , check the voltage on each side of the circuit breakers and disconnect switch to insure they have good connection . From what you have said the slide circuit is working properly ?

RE: Propane equipment

Mine went bad last year. I believe it was the original, so that would make it 38 years old. I didn't know it had gone bad - I was just having the lines checked for leaking as a preventative measure while having some other work done. Good thing - they said the pressure in the tank was higher than they had ever seen. I don't see how a bad regulator could affect the pressure in the tank . Seems it would be a bad pressure release at the tank with an overfill . The tank pressure will always be higher than after the regulator , unless it's empty , or there would be no flow to appliances .

RE: TC bends frame of Dually - pic

Since we're all speculating , I wonder if there wasn't enough tongue weight . If the trailer got to oscillating up and down from road conditions and the hitch being right at the frame , no extension ,the only flex would be in the frame or the trailer extension . From the pic the trailer extension is not bent , the hitch looks intact . The truck is a 4 door with a 8' bed , that's a long frame .

RE: Lost fridge cover... Any ideas?

Try herehttp://www.pellandent.com/RV_Products_List.aspx?CategoryID=97 You might also try a sheet metal shop , there's not much to them .

RE: Old reliable took a Dump!

Good luck with the new ride! Its nice that they let DRW on the beach now. Have Fun! Rick I was thinking the same thing . Anyone know of a listing of beaches that allow DRW on the east coast ?

RE: Air in Water Lines

Usually it's the line( hose )from the water tank to the pump . Check the fittings/clamps first . If not that the hose itself may be porous or have cracked ends . Sometimes you can just cut the ends off and re-clamp .

RE: Broken Frame

properly done it disperses & spreads the stress over a larger area Ticki2 did you fix that dent ???? I understand the advantage of boxing a frame , I used that method on the old Dodge , I was puzzled by the statement not to do it in a high stress area . Perhaps I'm reading it incorrectly . Ah yes , the dent . I had hoped to get to it this past winter but that didn't happen . Made some good progress this summer . Exterior panels are on , rib replaced , spayed insulation replaced and working on interior aluminum . Should be finished this fall , too late for camping this year as truck goes into plow mode . Will be giving a full report on the Avion thread , with pics , when done . The thread has gotten so big I want to keep it all in one place . I passed through your stomping grounds last week coming back from a friends camp near Old Forge .

RE: Broken Frame

of the same metal thickness that closes the "C" into a box can be a real help as long as the added metal doesn't end abruptly but rather tapers away and doesn't occur at a high stress area. Now I'm confused . What would be the advantage of boxing the frame in a low stress area ?

RE: Broken Frame

Raften , since you are bringing in to a welding shop also have them inspect the upper front spring perches . I don't know how many years it covered but for my 94 there was a recall and they were rewelded by the dealer , which would also imply that it's OK to weld on the frame . FWIW , the body shop down the road had a 2nd gen dodge 3500 for a wrecker and the rear frame was all double plated , he said the dodges needed it for heavy duty use . I did similar to my 94 after it developed a crack between the rear spring perches on one side and between the cab and spring on the other. Not to discourage you , a GOOD welder can make it all better . Good luck .

RE: Broken Frame

I had to do more than one frame repair to my old 94 3500 CTD dump and know of several others with second generation Dodge . I'm not sure weather it was a design or material flaw .

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

It would seem that you will have to raise the camper anyway to clear the cab , why not go with a flatbed ?

RE: Lance Camper Walls

It's not clear what the attaching system you are trying to use , hooks , taping directly to the wall,...? Perhaps a picture would help . 3M foam core auto trim and molding tape sticks to almost anything .

Bill, RVdumps.com says it's behind Kitchen Collection at SG , cost unknown . Let us know if you find it .

RE: Campgrounds in White Mountain National Forest NH

We can split hairs over the definition of dispersed camping . Since the OP is from CO I didn't think he would consider these relatively small designated camping areas dispersed camping by western standards .

RE: Campgrounds in White Mountain National Forest NH

So do you have to camp in designated campgrounds on NF or is dispersed camping allowed? To the best of my knowledge there is no dispersed camping allowed in the NF here in the north east , forest roads are closed to vehicular traffic with few exceptions . Too close to high population areas , too many abusers . They use to be open to anyone who could get through them.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos

How did Avion originally install a roof ladder/rack ? My guess is they were screwed into wood backing. I too would like to add at the very least a ladder for roof access just to perform roof inspections. But a roof rack would be a nice addition. I go back and forth on adding solar but a roof rack could make install a little easier. Can aluminum tubing lets say 1 " in diameter be bent using a simple EMT bender ? I have an option list for a '67 and a '69 and there is no mention of a ladder or roof rack so I don't think it was ever available from the factory . If installing an aftermarket one I would definitely mount it through the ribs .
