RE: Loading TC with a Dually challenging?

Yes. I found, though more critical and less wiggle room, easier with DRW to get centered and square. Before SRW I sighted in bed trying to judge distance between wheel wells, now I just watch the gap from fenders to jacks in the mirrors, and generally less jockeying to get square. If the gap remains same as Im backing under were square.

RE: Comments on GM’s latest truck pictures

Plastic, not part of the bed. Video at 2018 Detroit Auto Show preview shows in a bit of detail. Kinda hard to comment on something most haven't seen... https://youtu.be/AhIh8lLYzLo?t=69

RE: 2016 Ram 3500 not disengaging 4 wheel drive low gear

Just adding to the consensus, your 'issue' isn't and normal. Some trucks worse than others but they all do or can bind up to a degree. Your method to relieve the tension SOP. Mine is manual Xfer case and hubs, usually just driving off the blocks enough to release the tension, if not rolling a few feet or pulling back forward. Using 4WD to climb blocks a lot more effective- climbs instead of front tires pushing, Low range just slower more control. Just easier on the truck. Im of the opinion 4WD should be exercised. Curious about the lubing of front drive shaft with every oil change, are the Dodges front axles engaged full time?

RE: Stove vent

I dunno know-at least on ours, the internal door swings freely inside of the vent housing 'snout' that protrudes thru hole in camper wall. Nothing about it would give the slightest resistance to water entering. However on ours, indeed water wouldn't get into hood, water getting past outer door would run down inside of wall. The snout of outside cover and the hoods snout are not connected or sealed to each other. Our Ventline is worse than some due to its the small opening style the goes thru wall. Uses same outside cover (and hole thru wall) that is a lot larger. https://imgur.com/7d0U07B.jpg height=480 width=640 https://i.imgur.com/yCXBz5H.jpg height=480 width=640

RE: TC Collision Repair near San Luis Obispo ?

Cant recommend anyone but Villa Automotive in SLO does repair work, Theres a small shop in Morro Bay (Morro Bay RV & Marine), Sky River in Paso, Anyone could probably do the work- fairly straight forward repair, matching the siding is what might be the issue. Might be worth a call to Lance see who they might work with in our area?

RE: Stove vent

On the Fabulous Operating Products SAM-1-81 Range Hood Upgrade Kit, not sure quoting a year old review by someone who obviously hadn't researched what they were buying and what would be involved to install representative of the fan. Installation instructions for the Sam-1 can be downloaded. http://www.fabulousoperatingproducts.com/installation Not that I'm buying- but replacing that 'lil plastic propeller with a squirrel cage fan would be nice. But question was about the exterior flapper door (albeit 3 years ago?). I also used our awning rod to open/close. Primarily due to the tapping noise at night. I converted to a cable push/pull setup several years ago but was a rather involved project. Awning rod simple, or 4' of Ø3/16" rod bent to suit.

Mercedes actually had one in production, http://automotorpad.com/mercedes/297897-mercedes-g63-amg-6x6-is-sold-out.html Theres a video linked of it in use, interesting If they made a standard cab 'might' be room for camper.

RE: Power loss

Had to look-TV, radio (and a phone jack)indeed are on a separate fuse, huh, according to the schematic #7 15a fuse. https://i.imgur.com/y8p7VHQ.jpg width=640 height=480 If you just replaced antenna, possibly it was on (powered antenna)and accidentally grounded during install. Or cause of ant. replacement pulled on cable and its shorted internally. If fuse blown, unscrew the coax leading to antenna, & pull power wire at back of switch prior to inserting new. If fuse doesn't blow, reattach power lead to switch. If it doesn't blow reattach coax. If it doesn't blow-yer good. If fuse blows again you've a short Assuming Winegard..

RE: ? Buzzing sound from control panel?

Oh-likely the transformer described isn't issue with replacement Xantrex unit, my assumption was 10 year old factory installed unit. Though any electronics can develop hum..I'm curious where exactly buzz is originating I cant imagine the original converter/charger is active? Not really familiar with the Xantrex but my understanding is it does bypass/replace factory unit. The only reference to 'buzzing' looking thru Xantrex site was downstream GFCI not compatible with sine wave. As its 2 years old, contacting Xantrex might be worth while IF still under 2year warranty http://www.xantrex.com/power-products-support/warranty-repair-help.aspx After the 2 years doesn't appear repair an option. No opinion/experience with CW, would 'think' they might be able to trouble shoot your install, certainly could replace. Not sure about your RV 'mechanic' second time around?

RE: 2003 lance 1171 and 2017 Srw f350 am I asking for trouble?

Photobucket no longer allows 3rd party linking-need another host The numbers you quoted don't work, let alone real world. Lets pretend you could load camper with gear and liquids and stay under 4500#, you and co-pilot weigh less than 296# and you have not so much as a map inside cab-still 1500# over, minimum. Thats a lot of pretending. I cannot imagine the salesman had clue to the weight your thinking about to not recommend DRW (sure dont want to drive into lot with it loaded expecting any warranty work.) Maybe your 'friend' would let you drive his setup around the block, if you want to go that route of making it work and what you'd end up with-but Im in agreement-camper way to big, truck too small- one needs to change. If this is a long term pursuit Id change truck.

RE: ? Buzzing sound from control panel?

https://youtu.be/lUt8rE9tYo0?t=21 Here's a really loud transformer. Simple matter of the laminated plates loosening and vibrating when powered. "Generally" the hum or buzzing not an issue other than annoying. Which on yours, once on, heats up and expands enough to quite down. Sometimes easily fixed. Often not & can be made worse. Sometimes plates are bolted which slight tightening may fix. Often welded but if it has corner holes, bolts can be added (as per video). If its riveted not worth the effort. If your converter has large transformer it my be better time spent replacing and installing a newer converter. Again don't even look at it without turning off ALL power, If its something your unfamiliar with, especially older units, exposed internal parts can retain quite large residual power, enough in some case to kill-just sayin.

RE: Google Chrome embed fix for nuked photobucket images

Up until a few weeks ago you could download your entire album(s) as a zipped filed to your computer, P/B has taken that down also. Likely in response to the number of folks downloading their pics. Now its downloading one picture at a time- I wish I could see the point though of folks simply deleting accounts-like that'll teach p/b. When all its doing is removing any means to view pictures by others- IE the google 'fix' and other workarounds, as temporary as it may be, wont work if pictures deleted.

RE: It Begins...New to me 2001 Lance 1010

Nice-though I'd be a bit more curious about what appears to be, the jack not being true vertical. That and all the wrinkling on the wall. Could be there was a reason upper mount relocated? https://i.imgur.com/mbwXqTe.jpg If the upper mount on jack plate was flipped 180° give another 1" or so rearward at top. Did note the lower T/L mount has no outer plate (facing forward) and the eyebolt used is facing to rear. Fixing that would increase angle by several inches.

RE: Small step for camper

The flip over steps-flip over and store setting on bumper. Standard simple step included with a lot of campers...It doesnt hang when on road. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Glow-Step/i-pdJmNGb/1/13b2f454/O/IMG_0399.jpg width=640 height=480 We use to have ours center mounted, when stairs weren't used it was, would fold over to store on road. When stairs used it hung underneath. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Glow-Step/i-GhNQpVM/1/523942cc/O/tlbs29f.jpg Worked well, step to use when scissor steps were not (on road), out of the way when stairs used. We use to carry the stairs inside, along with the bumper 'basement step. But with the change to the stow & go basement step can stay mounted and since flip over couldn't any longer it got moved over. Hm I wander...Anyway... the question where to get a simple flip over? THAT is the question. Come up a few times, only half million on the road but finding source not easy. Likely a lot hanging in folks garages.. Many are formed tube with step but could be easily cut plate etc. Yours may need extended brackets, bumper is short, to get enough height between top of bumper and flipped over top of step. Take some imagineering to get angles right. Torklift uses some on different bumpers they make but never seen just step listed. Contacting a camper mfg might yield source.

RE: Small step for camper

Guys-you dont have the Torklift Glowstep Revolution-you have the Torklift Glowstep Stow-N-Go, as do I. Completly different system? While would also solve, replacing existing steps with the Stow-N-Go, she already said keeping originals. But it wouldnt be that difficult to adapt over...the ease of use-instant deployment just amazing. IF they could be top tread flush mounted, retain the step down distance. Looks like width of tread might equal landing.

RE: Small step for camper

What would work is a simple flip over step. I looked thru your blog looking for pictures of your camper and you have bumper, also the required brackets. (scaling and cropping induced color & quality shift) https://i.imgur.com/EypNwnB.jpg It looks as though your landing utilizes the mounts under bumper and would interfere with a flip over so additional brackets would be needed. https://i.imgur.com/2opkkys.jpg On yours as door swings to ladder probably need to mount on left side- This is ours, I moved original flip over brackets a bit further to right side. Just pieces of channel riveted underneath or nut&bolt if can reach. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Glow-Step/i-mZGvzRB/1/bb65852d/O/IMG_0409.jpg width=640 height=480

RE: Scissor Steps determining how many steps you need

All pages on Torklifts site related to steps have calculator for finding number of steps. Well if there is a calculator I can't find it on any of the pages for steps I'm going to go with the Stow N Go, and as soon as they return my email I will choose the number of steps I need About mid page, red box thingi, though called 'application guide', my bad. Pick a number of steps & color, it will give height of bracket and part number. Again top tread for flush mounting would be approx. 4" lower.
