RE: Electrical Gremlin?

Check your grounds. x3 , especially ground to camper chassis . Connection might not be loose but has some corrosion .

RE: Under chassis mounted generator

Same way as you would on any A, B, C, or trailer... Haven't seen one that mounts under the vehicle where the spare tire mounts . I have seen them in a compartment with a side or rear opening door . Could you point one out ?

RE: Tie downs for a flatbed

I bolted the D-rings down through the diamond plate into a bar that spans at least 2 cross members . If it stops raining I'll see f I can get a picture .

RE: Tie downs for a flatbed

I special ordered a set of 4 front Torklift Anchorguards ( all short spring loaded ) and attach to the flatbed with heavy duty D-rings . This kept them inside the flatbed so I could close in the sides . I didn't bother with the fastguns because I don't remove often and they are easy enough to remove .

RE: Extra water

I want to carry additional water and have been looking at different jugs for doing so: Coleman 5-gal jugs, 20-L NATO plastic jugs, etc. I read that the Reliance jugs are very poor quality. Any experiences with jug quality, problems, etc? The Reliance jugs are not the greatest but mine are going on 5 years and still work fine . One nice feature is you can use a cheap 12v Live Well pump to transfer so you don't have to lift it to fill . Brad W did a good write up in the TCU .

RE: Overfilled Propane tank is what the firemen said...

I am pretty sure the OPD valves will attach with the newer external hose thread and the older internal hose thread .

RE: Tricks to keeps rodents from destroying TC

Stuff steel wool into every crack and crevice they can get into , they won't chew through it . If it snows heavy they can enter at floor level .

RE: Lance LC900 Rear Door Replacement???

RE: Why did the front plug/connection come into being on TCs?

Both Ford and GM and I think also Dodge had Camper Specials since the mid 60's . Early campers that had batteries almost always had them up front for better weight distribution . Coming out the front has the shortest wire run , still does . Just another $.02 .

RE: High Load Rating Wheels

If front spacers will do the trick for you this place will make what ever you want . http://www.wheeladapter.com/ The front studs will be too short but you can replace them with studs from a dually rear . Finding the right wheels with the right dimensions AND a decent weight rating is frustrating to say the least . If you go with the 34.53 tires in the rear what will you use in the front ? I am very interested in what you come up with . Good luck

RE: New tire?

Anything larger than stock with that year chevy dually loaded will rub on the rear without spacers . You can get away with 1/4" spacers and 235/85/16 , but just barely . I happen to like the 235's , but 215's are fine and will exceed all your weight ratings .

RE: Air bags and cat scale shock

Well I don't know what the boat is filled with , just going by the OP's weight slip . My boat, motor, and trailer completely loaded only weighs 3,120 lbs. The gross weight on the slip is misleading, because the wonderful folks operating the scales couldn't grasp the concept of what I was trying to do. They essentially just doubled the weight of the truck, camper, and trailer tongue weight (Trailer axle weight figure). Steer axle was front half of the truck, and the drive axle figure was the rear half. It took them a half our, and me driving across the scales three times to just get a split weight on my front and rear axles. There were three platforms, and the front of my truck fit on one, the rear on the second, and the boat on the third. Should be simple right? Not in Kentucky :D Would have been nice if you clarified that when you posted the weight slip .

RE: Remote Vented Battery Boxes for group 31 Batteries

These seem to be for 6v but might be of interest . http://www.centuryplastics.ca/images/stories/pdfs/Battery_Boxes_Containment_Boxes.pdf

RE: Air bags and cat scale shock

230# is not enough tongue weight for a 9000+ trailer , that's less than 3 percent , 5 to 10 percent is recommended for boat trailers .It is probably the biggest contributor to the porpoising . A weight distributing hitch will help move some of the rear axle weight to the front . You are at or over most of your limits GVWR , GCWR , GRAWR . Air bags will lift the back of the truck but will not necessarily fix all the problems . Take a hard look at all the parameters before deciding on a direction .

RE: Remote Vented Battery Boxes for group 31 Batteries

Depends on how much space you have and the shape . Will they be mounted side to side or end to end ? Most of the off the shelf boxes when I was looking are bulky and didn't work for me . I wound up making my own from SS that I found at the dump , pure luck . If that hadn't happened I was going to use ABS sheet , it's pretty easy to work with ABS cement .

RE: Opinions from 4x4 dually owners on tires

In another thread the OP states his new truck is a F350 4x4 dually with 315's . Must have spacers , he didn't say if the wheels are OEM . OP , if I might suggest , it might be better to keep all of these type questions in one thread as they are all related ( tire size , jack width , MPG ). The information you give in each thread is not complete and adding to the confusion . I think it would yield more helpful responses .

RE: Registering a truck camper

My TC is titled and plated. The annual fees pay for the "free" dump stations at rest areas in my state. Are out of stater's not allowed to dump ?
