RE: COG - I broke a cardinal rule...go easy on me

Now to make the challenging question even moreso, we intend to tow a 20' Thunderjet boat attached to an 18" hitch extension - I know, I don't ask for much :) I suspect the tongue weight on the boat trailer will be about 500# Add a good WD hitch and all will be good. My rig actually drives better with a 7,500 lb trailer behind it on a Reese WD hitch. Brad

RE: Torklift customer service

*They wasted almost an hour of my time showing me all the cool new stuff they had. *The president of the company FORCED me to remove my old Torklift hat and put on a new one. *They MADE ME take all new stickers for all my Torklift stuff for free. *I went to the trouble of putting my wallet in my pants and they refused to let me take it out. *The president brought his lead engineer out to try and solve a unique truck issue I simply mentioned I was having, completely unrelated to do with Torklift. I'll never go down there again. Don't blame you, not offering to come to your campsite and cut and stack you firewood is in inexcusable. :) :) Very seldom read a discouraging post about Torlift; well thought out products and great customer service.

RE: Do many campgrounds discriminate against TC's...?

Brad, it was the KOA where I ran into the grumpy lady. Funny how different people have different experiences at the same place. I won't stay at the Limon KOA. I dang near got into a fist fight the "operator" of that cg many years ago when I "parked on the wrong site". They had not left a reservation package out for us at the night registration; it was 1 am, the place was empty, we weren't even going to hook up, so we just picked a site that looked pretty much like the other 99 sites around it. The guy accused me of not paying. The guy never apologized, even after he had to open the night deposit box up to give me my $40 back. That was 10 or 12 years ago; may be under new management now. :) Brad

RE: Do many campgrounds discriminate against TC's...?

Last year we stayed at a wonderful campground on Lake Guntersville in Alabama (Honeycomb Creek). That may be the first place we ever camped in our Lance. I know it was the first campground where we removed the camper from the truck to make launching our bassboat easier. Honeycomb CG Old Timers around here refer to that part of Guntersville Lake as "Whitakers Lake". I have no idea why. I was actually kicked out of that cg back in the 70's when there realized we had two dirt bikes. They were on a trailer and we had no plans of unloading them in the cg, but we "had to go" anyway. Just remember, there are a-holes everywhere but just because you run across some on Guntersville does not mean they are locals. That lake has become too famous for its own good and it not uncommon for the majority of the vehicles parked at the boat ramps to have out of state tags. Brad

RE: Do many campgrounds discriminate against TC's...?

I ran into this in Strasburg Colorado one summer. My wife was flying into Denver International and I stayed in Strasburg to be semi close. Must not have been the KOA. We've stayed at the Strasburg KOA many times and they always seemed very happy to have us there. Brad

RE: Do many campgrounds discriminate against TC's...?

In 18 years of truck camping, we have never been turned away from a campground of any type.

RE: Trip report : Skafell Pike - the top of England

Cool photos. Looks like you had the whole place to yourselves. Brad

RE: Open diff or limited slip

Limited slip = one wheel slips, power goes to the non-slipping wheel and you get moving again. Unfortunately some torque is applied to both axles and there in lies the problem driving a high torque, heavily loaded front axle and lightly loaded rear axle vehicle on ice like a turbo diesel pick up.

RE: Open diff or limited slip

I got used to it in my Jeep using Detroits and Lock Rights but it can be a caution on ice. This was only mentioned by Jefe, but it is not to be overlooked. Nothing will put you in a ditch faster than the combination of a diesel pick-up, empty truck bed, L/S diff and an ice covered road/bridge/etc. Our 1996 F-250 PS 4x4 L/S diff was almost undrivable on icy roads with an empty truck bed. On snow it did OK. As Jefe mentioned, selectable lockers are available. I have two ARBs on my jeep. Brad

RE: test photo

didn't work. Post up what you think the picture link is and maybe we can tell you were you went wrong.

It's already listed on the FAQ page.

RE: late 90's lance legend 500 9'10"

Ditto on the table. We removed the slide mechanism from the bottom of the table and rotated it 90 degrees. Works great for two people.

RE: late 90's lance legend 500 9'10"

We bought our Lance Legend 500 new in 1996 and still have it. I agree with most of what okan-star said. I would add that the charger/converter (mag tek) which came with the camper was junk and will likely need replacement if it hasn't already been replaced. Check for "wing rot". Our camper is a tight fit in a new Ford and needs a 3" lift to clear the cab. Our 500 is going on 19 years old and we have been very happy with it. Brad

RE: Thank you Torklift!

That is great to hear. It is a shame that many manufacturers ignore email from customers. Brad

RE: .

. I'm not seeing the OP's original subject line or thread. is it just me? I had the same problem. Try erasing your temporary internet files; that fixed mine.
