RE: Water pump running but nothing on

No-unless its a water leak that is relieving line pressure- intermittent running is not a problem, not going to cause any damage (unless your trying to take a nap and throw something), pumps doing what its designed to. Turn on a faucet till pump comes on then close. Once pump stops, slowly fill container until pump comes back on -that's the volume of water you'd be looking for if a water leak, every 30 minuets, pretty sure would become obvious if actually leaking. Short of faucets/toilet, WH p/r valve weeping Id assume pump just not holding back line pressure. Ours is 17+. We also do not leave pump on when not in use, especially cylcing every 30 min. We do have an accumulator now but the pump can be off for hours and turning back on pump doesn't start unless we've used water. It used to briefly cycle but maybe in an hours time. Which doesnt makes sense to me- its just reserve pressure, seems it would bleed off to.

RE: ..."X" Plywood supports for camper

Copies of Budsters X's stands from his post '04- someone not too long ago duplicated them and posted. https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-L6TpwBv/0/55eac31f/O/Camperstand-1.jpg height=480 width=640 https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-4NWtdB5/0/8b81d6e7/L/Camperstand-2.jpg height=656 width=640 https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-JtMfsHD/0/e295bd71/L/Camperstand-3.jpg height=710 width=640

RE: Air Conditioner

Ours the roof slopes starting about 2" from hole. Important is the hole itself if flat. But the end of our AC is a almost an inch off roof. Gasket kit included a strip for rear support, as I recall I moved it closer to hole so just shy of contacting roof (like it would if roof flat) before compressing gasket. Our original AC was larger, the rear support strip didn't contact roof at all and it didn't leak or other ill effects from lack of support after 10 years. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/AC/i-7XqhN9T/0/33836d2e/O/ac16.jpg height=480 width=640 View showing roof slope https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/AC/i-WWZC76b/0/73d69553/O/ftv6.jpg height=458 width=640 Not best picture, just showing start of roof transition from hole. Its the 4 mount bolts that hold AC to roof, compressing gasket- I don't 'think' non-supported rear could cause a leak. I just didn't like of idea of it hanging and bouncing down the road. Possibly- likely wouldn't move though. If you added something just ensure it doesn't hold the unit up from compressing the gasket.

RE: Issue with Jacks on Saguaro with Reico Jacks

Sure 'looks' like the 90711 will work?.. http://www.riecotitan.com/accessories/brackets.php hole spacing is a bit different that goes into camper, but not a bad thing on older unit. Complete kit to replace all 4 jack bracket- 57 bucks? https://www.riecotitan.com/store/productpage.php?prod=239 But since you have a contact out I'd wait to see what they say. On the pictures, except the last, are they of the one still unbent?

RE: Fleetwood Elkhorn Construction

Flat roof, no back bumper, short rear skirts, NOT an Elkhorn 9T. Different bathroom configuration- the table angles cut more...just like an LT Not saying LT a puzzle, the filon also....maybe pause-yup just looked at the brochure, filon skin on the wood framed Elkhorn LT WAS an option. So that is what it is, an Elkhorn LT 9D, which in '03 was wood framed. For all intent and purposes, features it is an LT. Maybe some one in the past 'upgraded' by trimming the decals. If al frame corners is what you want, this one is wood. But otherwise nice for age. That said does need some attention on the nose, some work involved.

RE: Fleetwood Elkhorn Construction

That one looks exactly like the one I am looking at, but it doesn't have the LT on the side. If it doesnt have the LT wonder if mislisted and an Elkhorn 9T? Course last gasps of production could be anything. The LT I believe did not have rear bumper as standard feature. Hard to identify- one difference is on the 9T and 9D the refer and pantry positions are swapped. 9D East/west bed standard, N/S optional, E/W not available on the Elkhorn. Hard to say from here- other than filon that makes it 'possible' it has al frame but cant assume that. 2003 was the last year Fleetwood produced truck campers, shortly after pretty much no support, like it never happened. Last 03 model T/C brochure I could find https://web.archive.org/web/20030608064036/http://www.fleetwoodrv.com:80/info/qpi.asp?id=46 Aluminum frame, if it has, consists of entire sidewalls and rear wall (4 corners). Sidewalls have perimeter frame (top bottom & plate) and studs (including to end of nose, the one poster was misinformed). Basically 3 walls. The rear wall is framed down to floor level (basement if it has one), sidewalls down to wing (or down to bed rail level. Everything between the sidewalls is wood, across face of nose, under cabover bed, front wall, wings, floor(s), rear skirts and roof. There is a lot of wood. Caribou a bit more structure but mostly amenities, did have al roof rafters.

RE: Fleetwood Elkhorn Construction

Not sure on an 2003, '02 and earlier 9D were wood frame, the 9D designation was for Angler model though. Metal skin. Found one picture of an '03 listed as a 9D, definitely an Elkhorn, shows filon siding which makes me think 'possibly' aluminum framed sidewalls. But also an Elkhorn LT (previous years were LE, model between an Angler and Elkhorn, wood frame). Last year of production.

RE: TC back to back propane tank question

It was not they did not need to be removed on previous trailers it was that they were able to each be removed without disconnecting or moving the other tank because they were side by side and could run off the full tank while filling the empty. Never mentioned filling while the tanks are in the camper , the reason for the extra use of the propane is because we are off the truck at the beach for three weeks 3 times a year, I think a longer pig tale on the front tank would allow it to be set on the ground while off the truck while refilling the back tank and keep things running I have seen 4 foot long pig tales. I don't have the height to add a tray which would be the best solution in fact it is pretty tight getting a full tank in the compartment in the front position . Thanks for the ideas and help Mike Ohh .. got it, a little dense- removing rear tank while front in use, and not disrupting flow. Longer hose to allow setting front tank on ground to retrieve rear tank would work- if you have room for the extra hose-I dont. Probably take an 8' hose on ours. Seems might be difficult getting tank back in with that much hose attached. For the few minuets it would take, shutting down to swap tanks, retrieving rear empty I dont see issue. system will re pressurize pretty quick. But, as convenience if the auto switch-over is pointing at front tank- it will be the one that empties first, (I also keep rear tank closed until needed). Then switch changover to rear tank, removing front to refill. That would give you 3 tanks without removing rear-with one refill. Or indefinitely as other have mentioned, without removing rear tank, if you keep switching to front.

RE: TC back to back propane tank question

Not sure I'm following. Sounds like though previous 'trailers' tank didnt need to be removed? I also read, sort of, refilling without removing or some other means of filling back tank. Even IF they would refill in TC cabinet, I wouldn't let them. I cant imagine doing that-if for no other reason camper would stink for a week from the bleed off when filling. Ours are front to back also. I don't use the auto switch-over valve in auto position, I manually switch. I 'use' the outside tank. If it runs out or know it is low & needs refilling, switch to back tank, remove front tank to get filled. However when putting back I pull out the rear tank, whether or not it was connected & opened to use and place fresh tank in back, closed. Switch valve to front tank. In theory back tank should always be full. In theory shouldn't need to remove back tank on the road. Its a real pain when camper on truck. Deviation from my SOP has only left me with no propane 3 times, (inconvenient to swap tanks or forgot to switch valve...) Yes filling/changing tanks takes some time, can be a pain- but is what it is.

RE: Outrigger removal ??

Extended hitch or trailer tounge so rear jacks on/off not an issue? Or if removed because of trailer-throw rear jacks on trailer.

RE: Stabilizing: Wobble Stopper vs Platform vs Jack Stands

For traveling the aluminum stands are nice-no weight easy to store. They are short-17" at full height so need to set up, make what ever to use before hitting the road. I threw this together before an extended trip.. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Ourelkhorn/i-GLRcxDg/2/1284ed60/O/jackstab6.jpg height=600 width=800 Across the front I counter-bored a 2x4 to set on top between 2 stands, center screw that enters top of post. Rear just blocks with screw to set on top (keeps them from falling off when setting up) Bases I used 2x, match drilled all the stands and set couple of finish nails-keep stands from walking off (or just around perimeter). Goes without saying just snug the stands. The stands by themselves do get rid of most of the movement. Walmart etc carries for same Amazon price- I did make jack stabilizers but dont know how much time you have. 2 are attached jack to side once jacks swung out, 2 more are attached across front once off truck. Night and day, when raising/ lowering.

RE: Avion camper rebuilds - hundreds of photos (NOT ANYMORE!)

The link provide has an extra http:// however going to the site the picture it tries to generate, ( full of errors), is directing to amazon https://s3.amazonaws.com/static.fixphotobucket.com/albums/xx38/dgorton/interior.jpg What this 'fix' does is download the picture from PB and uploads to amazon web services..gives new link to where photo uploaded. noted he has also started a hosting site, well in process... I tried several folks pictures including my own and didn't work? my opinion this isn't really a simple 'workaround', doesn't simply make PB picures show up, still need to edit posts for pictures to show-so a host that gives you full control, keeps file names would be a better fix. If you havent already-download your PB album. Find a host, upload pics to it, replace posted picture links with new url. Slow/painful but doable over time. Once pictures hosted somewhere else- its just taking the time to relink pictures. I noted, 67avion, going to your PB account all pics are in 1 huge album. When/if recreating on new host site is to separate out photos to subjects. Will make finding a lot easier verses sifting thru 500+ pictures.

RE: If the thread that you are reading is missing pictures ...

Unknown- but doesnt hurt to leave copies. If, as highly improbable and unlikely it may be, PB had a change of heart- old inaccessible links would be restored. IF, I lost copies of albums on cpu or IMGUR account and still have access to PB just another backup. I'm working from purely self serving position-not considering effects pro or con to PB. Point is, IMO, simply deleting all pics and albums from PB (without downloading copies of albums) just limits and makes more difficult to pursue options, if you chose to. Ive downloaded all pictures and albums to my computer from PB so I have a duplicate of what was uploaded over the years. https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-6bxTFcL/0/2b77391e/O/pbfiles.jpg height=533 width=800 Extracted to a simular file structure https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-3NT8bqP/0/a348b135/O/pbfilesDL.jpg height=600 width=800 Created an IMGUR account and uploaded the extracted files recreating albums https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-RW6qvCJ/0/15e26e65/O/imgurf.jpg height=600 width=800 However due to the renaming of files wont be using imgur-just too difficult finding/matching for relinking...Free and simple if you dont have many pics-however as mentioned before imgur is 'evolving'. Also if using imgur I recommend opening an account so you have some control. I've seen to many imgur pictures linked from the free web portal that were simply overwritten by someones elses picture with same file name. anyway... Opened up another account, trying a paid account with smugmug. Only one I found that the files keep names so easier to relocate, option for sizes, other features. So far I'm liking... there are several other sites. https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-FDHWpLR/0/3de9883f/O/smug2.jpg height=523 width=800 Once account set up and pictures hosted, hard parts over. Its simply finding/editing posts, copying new url and overwriting link. Once pictures hosted somewhere links can be updated at your leisure. I'm re-linking all posts I have access to. Tedious, painful yes. Not that most of my posts have any real value, but a few less holes in threads.

RE: weld broken on the slide - common??

While not common nor to be expected it is not that an uncommon for support under slideout to fail. Various reasons, but a square hole in anything is inherently weak. Campers also rely on the entire assembly for strength. If the siding fails whether rot of wood, simple delamination, the frame has to withstand any tweaking forces- and obvious most are not up to the task. Another is the sagging of the support underneath. It doesn't stretch. If yours is sagging you should address. Just alot of force and stress already on corners-add a member that is trying to pull away, its going to fail. As to the OP, not seeing picture of the corner before branch fell on it, couldn't guess. But slide deployed and extra downward force applied to that corner 'could' have broken weld. Or weld could have already been broke and branch cracked filon which simply didn't show till later. 1st picture showing amount of corrosion and wood degradation hard to believe happened over 1 winter? The branch while small, enough weight to break at base, swinging down in arc likely struck with pretty could force & momentum. I wouldn't want to have been under. Enough force to break weld? Normal wear & tear? Properly functioning slide out, going in and out all day long should not cause weld or structure to fail. In reality not that simple though, binding, racking of structure, just going down the road, surprised more don't fail. Ours failed, beam was sagging, one end of beam had been broke for a while, the other end finally broke and I thought slide was going to fall out. I have no corrosion or rot- welds simply broke.

RE: If the thread that you are reading is missing pictures ...

Not sure I understand the impulse to delete all pics/albums when nowhere will picures link back to PB unless picture is 'opened'. I've downloaded all albums (zip) because if rebuilding posts at least I have collection of the pictures that have been posted different forums over the years. Trying to relocate some of them would be impossilbe. Having the albums at least gives me the structure and pictures to upload somehere else. Im leaving pics on PB-jusincase, though I made private since they wont show up anyway-still free backup storage.

RE: If the thread that you are reading is missing pictures ...

no I think your mis reading. It not referring to linking images, but using imgur as a host to store and retrieve for another site. ie my personal website, instead of using my resources, is to store all content on another site (IMGUR)and just link to it.. That said IMGUR is also in the midst of change. They are seeing the 'future' more as a social media site than an image hosting site. Some may have seen some of the testing results, images having a border with link to IMGUR among other features, download link-view count.. Your picture will show but become a traffic generator to IMGUR https://community.imgur.com/t/great-well-i-guess-imgur-is-unusable-now/43870 http://blog.imgur.com/2017/06/21/a-new-look-for-direct-links/ Which may not be too bad, however my pain is uploading images to IMGUR site, (and most others) it assigns its own file name to picture. When editing a prior post becomes a matter of matching picture instead of just new url & file name, one more level of frustration. Scrolling thru pictures trying to find a match-rewriting url path minor (if thread hasnt been locked). Ive downloaded all my PB pics and created IMGUR account and uploaded them all but still looking for a host. Did a bout half an older post and stopped after half dozen pics-just tedious and pointless. I cant help but think, because of the $400 annual upgrade tag, that PB really doesn't want to host pics anymore for sharing and expects folks to leave. If it were revenue, making free accounts $20 would have sated even the greediest.. Can you imagine YouTube doing this?
