RE: Arctic fox: you should be ashamed of yourselves!

The Amerigo may not have the best fiberglass, but its actual fiberglass and can be taken off and repaired in a pinch. "Real" fiberglass (like they make Ranger bass boats out of) seems to me to be the near perfect material for a TC shell. I would think it would also be the easiest to repair. There must be some drawbacks to fiberglass; maybe cost? I don't know of any fiberglass TCs with slide outs. That filon scares the ***** out of me, but that's probably will be on my next TC.

RE: Arctic fox: you should be ashamed of yourselves!

Not exactly on subject but I much prefer aluminum siding over Filon. Too bad the industry, for the most part, don't. That is one of the reasons we have hung on to our 1996 Lance for 21 years. I have read way too many stories about Filon delamination with no good way to fix it.

RE: Most Expensive Camp Site Ever

You got off easy, could have been 50 to 60 thousand dollars. About time I caught a break! :) :) :)

RE: Most Expensive Camp Site Ever

Spent one night camping in the back parking lot of Ford dealer in Brevard, NC a few years back when the clutch slave cylinder went out on of 2001 F-350. I think that night was about $400. :)

RE: RM Even Brake vs BO Patriot

I've bought a lot of Blue Ox stuff; mainly from E-Trailer. I've always had good luck with BO stuff and excellent service from E-Trailer. I had intended to buy the BO version. But I read some bad reviews of the Blue Ox version of the Ready Brake. One review said that even factory could not get it to work right. Lots of good reviews out there on the NSA Ready Brake. Their design seems simple and robust. I like simple and robust; it gives me that warm fuzzy feeling. :) :) :)

RE: can't post

try using goodsamsclub.com instead. rv.net has a lot of quirks, and doesn't like certain symbols like percent symbol in posts. I've been having the same problem for two days. I read your post and removed the percent symbol and it finally worked. Thanks for the help! Brad on edit: I couldn't even post your quote with the percent symbol in it. :) :) :)

RE: RM Even Brake vs BO Patriot

I have the Ready Brake Elite about 95 percent installed. Took more time than I thought, but much of it was due to my aftermarket Poison Spyder front bumper. I ended up removing the driver side fender liner, which made it a lot easier to see what I was doing. I will post some photos later. So far, I like the looks of it. Brad

RE: Boat launching with TC?

90% of the time it's just me. I have done that too. On steep rams its pretty easy to load/unload with an aluminum boat because you don't have the problem of scuffing it up on the ramp like fiberglass. But on not so steep ramps, I end up with wet feet because of the length of the bed and the camper overhang in the rear. We have a 9' 10" camper and a 16' jon boat/30 hp Honda.

RE: Boat launching with TC?

My wife backs the truck and I ride in the boat. Two FRS radios makes it a LOT easier.

RE: New 2017 F350 wiring to Lance plug??

I was told by the guy who installed my Lance plug that all they do is get the truck side plug and plug it into the trailer wiring harness, all except for the 10 ga wire that they run directly from the battery to power the frige. So, all the other wires just wire into the 7 pin standard towing harness. Me thinks I have heard that before. They use the factory plug wires for everything except the two 8 gage wires they run directly to the battery. I assume they fuse the hot side at the battery. We plan on getting an 2018 F350, so I will have to figure it out sooner or later. I want to wire this new truck with adequately sized wire for the frig to operate correctly on 12v going down the road.

RE: New 2017 F350 wiring to Lance plug??

Using the stock plug with a converter results in the fridge running off battery and draining it while driving. Yep, that is exactly what mine does because I tied into the 7-way rv plug on the back of our F350.

RE: 2017 F-350 4X4 CC PSD DRW XLT Options Help

Lots of great info here. Hopefully I will have some time tomorrow to digest it in more detail. I've already seen some things I had forgot and some other things that I will now do differently. Thanks for all the good info, Brad

RE: Torklift Disappoints Me

That's my life. I just ordered a $1500 Ready Brake RV tow bar; I can only wonder what that will entail. I can only hope its only short a few 1/2" aircraft nuts. Well, it wasn't short a 1/2" nut. It was short a 3/8" nylon nut. There is a little threaded fitting that the mounts on the bumper and the brake peddle cable passes through it. Its supposed to have two nylon nuts, one for each side of the bumper. I've only found one in the box. The nut was supposed to be in a plastic bag with all the other cables, fasteners, etc. The bag was supposed to be heat sealed shut. Looks like they only heat sealed it half way across which left a large hole for parts to fall out of. I just hope that's the only thing missing. At this point, I just don't expect to get a complete working anything any more. That's my life; fixing someone else's screw up. BradW

RE: 2017 F-350 4X4 CC PSD DRW XLT Options Help

2WD is not an option for me. I have to have 4WD because of how I use the truck. Brad

2017 F-350 4X4 CC PSD DRW XLT Options Help

This thread is primarily aimed at folks who have bought a 2017 SuperDuty to haul their truck camper. We plan on ordering a 2017 (or possibly a 2018) F-350 4X4 Crew Cab PSD DRW XLT. We will likely be hauling our 1996 Lance 9’ 10” Legend 500 for a while and then buy a new Lance 1062 early next year. We will normally be towing a 7,000 lb car hauler. What I’m looking for are suggestions on options that you got and have worked out. Or options you didn’t get and wish you had. Any other suggestions on tie downs or whatever would be appreciated. Some of the areas I need help in are: Factory sprayed bed vs LineX Rear camera options (bed and tail gate) Wiring for truck to camper Wiring for truck to trailer Factory receiver hitch vs Torklift (we will probably go with Torklift tie downs) Seats (we want separate front seats with the console in between) Anything else you care to mention Any help is appreciated, Brad

RE: Adding a Bulb to a JK Tail Light - Bright Enough?

Found this too. Perfect. Thanks!!!

RE: Adding a Bulb to a JK Tail Light - Bright Enough?

Thanks both of you for the suggestion. I did not know Hopkins made a kit like that. I have always had good luck with Hopkins stuff. I just found this good review on Amazon for exactly my vehicle: Perfect fit 2015 Rubicon ByMoparManon April 28, 2017 Verified Purchase Perfect "plug & play" installation! If you can't install this unit yourself you probably shouldn't be towing. Roadmaster could take a page out of Hopkins playbook and build a unit like this. Instead they sell you a more expensive package with a handful of loose diodes and expect you to do a lot of wire splicing. Also, Roadmaster says you may need to add a brake light relay with their system. That was NOT necessary for my installation. Great product. Thanks again, BradW

5 pages about a couple nuts...... Looks like more than a couple. :B

Adding a Bulb to a JK Tail Light - Bright Enough?

OK, we plan on flat towing our 2015 JK. I'm thought I had decided to add bulb to each tail light using something like the RM-155 Road Master kit. But then I read a couple of reviews that said the tail light was not very bright due to where you had to mount the bulb. Anyone use that method? Are the tail lights sufficiently bright? Thanks for any help, BradW
