RE: Do you lock your turnbuckles?

Nah-$400 why go to the effort, I couldnt afford the 1st time-let alone repeat. Dont lock the truck doors either, leave a window halfway just in case I do accidentally lock. Release the primary latch on hood so it can easily be opened, never know when some poor sod needs batteries more than me, or needs something to swap for a bottle of red. Leave camper keys in the door when about, its not locked either but just in case perusing cabinet contents desired. No such thing as low life's, thieves or pranksters, let alone kids just messing around. Lord forbid I lock the front door of the house when away-someone might call me paranoid. Jeesh Seriously, the fastguns on camper like a ripe bunch of grapes on the vine 3' from the road. I lock. Not to concerned about where we camp but stopping on the road some of the parking lots iffy-getting groceries or a burger, or out on roadside trail. why invite? Never thought about bolting the extensions, be nice to redrill larger, tired of those 1/4" pins bending.

RE: Door window glass

https://i.imgur.com/HrVTa5R.jpg Appears you got the "Optical Rear Vision Door" unless referring to the fish eye which this doesn't have-surprised no allowance for curtain/blind though. Is the valance over door deep enough to add? Nice IMO to be able to see out. We recently added a full length curtain inside to cover both top & bottom windows. Don't need to step outside to flip the fish-eye window cover over.

RE: Door window glass

Many, myself included, have swapped out the factory opaque door glass with clear. Only mistake would be no curtain?

RE: Cover advice for my Bigfoot 9.6

I also have had really good luck with the Classic Accessories OverDrive PolyPRO 3 Deluxe Camper Cover... Im on my 3rd (well actually 4th, the last one starting its second year came apart on the nose. Contacted factory and they shipped replacement no questions- other than supplying P/N.) FYI if you do get a Classic take a pic or save the tag on cover with the part numbers, needed for warranty.

RE: Screen Door Part

The cross bar door pulls are really nice to use (saves the plastic door slide stop). https://i.imgur.com/sfCJUrn.jpg Amazon screen pull/handle Was hesitant to respond/recommend, just as well because I also thought you were asking about the latch- other than left hand right hand swing, the different mfgs also make matching screw holes difficult- https://i.imgur.com/N6R5M8i.jpg The handle/stop for the sliding cover unsure why the stop isn't included when replacing cover. Some (the 2 pieces)are not interchangeable with different brands. Our original slide was a Phillips. Screen handle/stop Depending on mfg, they refer to the handle/stop with different terms? Another standard universal item on most campers that are completely different depending on manufacture.

RE: Fast Guns - 2 or 4

Yes if you have original spring load turnbuckles, you can cut off end and thread directly, or link, onto either T/L derringers or H/J qwik loads. Gain the quick release feature without the cost. Quik Load T/L Derringer I was lucky enough to also find used fastguns, actually a member here. Which would be the other option, just cobble something together- keep your eye open for a used set.

RE: Fast Guns - 2 or 4

Unless link just an example- your thinking grey coated verse polished on your red truck? Sunk cost..

RE: Avion truck camper rebuilds - Hundreds of photos!

Google/bing "photobucket news"- Yes- The CEO has been replaced-pricing restructured...might be to little too late but for all the forums and archives across the web, at least for the time being, good news. Recent news- and pb site still shows the ransom fees- but the speedo pic is GONE. All photos that were blocked are now unlocked and can be seen. Long term I'm not sure how they are going to deal with existing photos linked and not 'break' the internet again. edit from PB web site https://support.photobucket.com/hc/en-us/articles/360004314254-Welcome-to-the-New-Photobucket-

RE: On the hunt for a good wired Backup Camera

Are you sure you posted the link to the right thread/message? I read the thread and saw nothing about cameras. Comments, here and elsewhere, (and the author) now gone...Hopefully happily RVviewing in yes, think it was Kowloon. Sorry for the distraction Joe

RE: Took this one for fish

Ahh Glider kit, I was thinking it was an older truck but transporting 'kit' without motor does make more sense. Still the more I look at it, possibly picture angle but appears single round headlight? on one pic (in front of temp sign) the short stacks look like they got taller & have reducers at top. Like the painted fuel tank Interesting truck,

RE: On the hunt for a good wired Backup Camera

Hmm- from inquiry to receiving and recommending in 27 minuets? :h We had a visitor- since departed, inquiring about a specific camera then recommending as the best he ever used, across several threads in different sub-forums. Funny

RE: Took this one for fish

If its a diesel (pickup) its a 7.3 but I dont see any factory diesel badging at all either. Both rigs are pretty clean- got a feeling someone spends some time with em. For those more familiar, that Peterbuilt has me curious. Sure is nice for what it is, I mean it doesn't look like it works for a living anymore? And why trailered as it is, do folks show these?

RE: Adding ac, what should I do with my fantastic fan.

The current hole for the A/C is framed to support the weight. That's where it should go, not in a new hole. Take the Fantastic fan out and move it to the bathroom. I moved my high powered fan to the bathroom. Works great there. I thought that was part of the question- location intended (and reinforced) for AC. Is it known the forward vent hole over bed allows for AC? Just never seen AC directly over bed in a T/C. Most that have vent over bed, AC hole allowance further back. As to the Fantastic in bath, while I'd rather have one in bath than the 'whir and buzz' unit, guess I'm odd man out. I wouldn't use bath fan to circulate air in camper. Plus a good deal of the time bath door is closed-especially when cold.

RE: Adding ac, what should I do with my fantastic fan.

I was going to say this topic was just brought up recently https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29382437.cfm but same OP. AC on the cab over does seem odd -Id suggest and agree as kohldad outlined verifying AC in the forward vent. Might get lucky-if intended location is mid placed (as I'd think it would be) might get to leave Fantastic intact.

RE: Bigfoot Shower Help

You can spend as much or little as you want- one source search Amazon, rv shower head. https://www.amazon.com/rv+shower+head Most heads with hose also include hanging brackets. Ya that exterior hose going back into camper is odd...

RE: Replacing Roof Top AC gasket/seal

The only gaskets I've used only have adhesive on one side and that is placed against AC?

RE: Did you get Torklift newsletter?

Structurally yes, the inserts could be mounted as you choose. Which you proved as you mounted, what most would consider backwards, and they didn't fail. However the task of resisting a certain force dictates orientation. Which you also proved, you camper wasn't being held Re-mounting the inserts with the tiedown plate pointing forward, increasing the tie down angle should help alleviate and hopefully solve your camper walking backwards. Ive several Torklift products, some of the best on the market I think but I would agree, in my opinion, that some of thier instructions manuals are the weak link. I've no qualm reimagineering a product to make it do what I want it to but was the manuals that needed the most refinement.

RE: Did you get Torklift newsletter?

That makes the installation against TL manuals. TL tie-downs are weak link in the system and they are first to bend, when reversing the inserts will put more stress on them. I am afraid that will void warranty and that is why TL is not answering the questions. EDIT https://youtu.be/3MnQKY3cxrY?t=147 Heres Torklifts video install on 2017..at 2:27 show insert-plate pointing forward... (manual same as NRALIFR uploaded showing insert mounting http://www.towshop.com/F2021-torklift-camper-tie-downs.pdf You can ignore the rest of this post EDIT Sorry believe your Wrong- Unless you interpreted "the short side" as meaning horizontal length instead of vertical, which is what they intended, the short vertical "height" end points to front, like pictures show. Not sure where you got info... Unless something specific on your application/install precludes mounting like most-If you currently have them pointing towards rear flipping them to point forward would give you 6-8" of more angle at bottom. IF indeed your manual states otherwise I would really like to see a copy. Otherwise youve already mounted contrary to whats specified. As far as stress, Because both ends of tiedown are free to rotate, the greater the angle between the more the angle itself will lessen vertical load. Probably not being clear on that. Its just a lever. If your standing directly at end of a rod pulling on load, how ever much you can pull your end toward you the other end will move that much. If you stand off to the side, however much you pull the distance at other end end will be less, or at least the force, as some will be absorbed by the rod & load trying to match angle. That made even less sense and I wrote it Oh well-I know what I meant Theres some rotational force being applied to the insert-extending it 4" as suggested.. :I dunno be the last thing I'd try to save 30 seconds at the pump.. If your bending inserts cant imagine what its doing to camper- bottom line to tight But have to ask -if your conclusion is pointing them forward would increase stress then why did you ask TL if ok to do? My assumption to T/L not responding is they 'heard' you asking to do what you had already don, departing from norm and mounting so that tiedown more vertical.. not that you had already mounted backwards and if ok to mount as intended. Which would be my conclusion if asked to depart from instructions, not realizing you had already mounted 180° off.

RE: Did you get Torklift newsletter?

... I send letter to TL if they would allow flipping the front inserts over, so the extension would go farther to the front... Are your 'ears' not already facing the front? https://i.imgur.com/d3fNesI.jpg width=600
