RE: What did you do to your truck today?

AMP running boards (retractable). My Buddy calls them Princess steps!!! :B He's just jealous! Amp steps are super functional and make entry and exit a breeze (they go down and out). I love mine! I am jeolous! We have a set on order, should be here Friday. Margarets having a hard time with the 27" hike. Last trip out she tweaked her back (again) leaping out before I could get around and set the folding stool. 'nough of that and ordered. Looking forward to the install, read nothing but good about the kits. Sounds like a torklift co. for running boards :) Just buttoned up some 'cosmetic' upgrades to the truck. Replaced the leaking yellowed '01 headlight assemblies with 1 piece 05/07 lights. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/05to01hl31b.jpg width=640 http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/05to01hl35.jpg height=480 width=640 Also changed out the mirrors to later lighted ones http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/mirror17.jpg width=640 What can I say, LEDS... http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/05to01hl25.jpg height=480 width=640 Great blazin' lights http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/mirror18.jpg height=480 width=640 Fun stuff- recently replaced both front hubs and brakes not so fun. But looking forward to the running boards-its all mute if the co-pilot missing

RE: Onan generator R/R

Imgur is good for occasionl/one offs for explaing something, but I wouldnt do a report entirely with it. Something you want control over , picture manipulation etc and long term use really want to get an account type (photobucket etc) going.

RE: Onan generator R/R

Are the pictures really large? If only using to post here resize copys to up load, as normally would only be displayed at 640 width, smaller file size simply loads faster.

RE: Solar on the roof of a 117dbl Okanagan?

If 'rubber on foam core'- that likey wouldnt hold it, so at minimum leading edge needs to be anchored. Must be (I would think) some kind of structure? Holds AC etc? Details.. but I cant help. Did a brief google and seen at least one for sale that had solar.

RE: Suggestions for adding 7 way conn. to bed w/ AF811SB camper

I cant imagine what the need would be to access the camper plug. Other than initial plugging in, Ive never had a plug come loose. In 15 years Ive only forgot once to verify lights and had to pickup camper. I dont have to pull forward, just raise an inch to reach. Though I think personal preference as far as access and where plug located- Id rather have a bed plug than the additional length of wire. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/dblurplzur.jpg width=640 But Ive 2, double ugly- one for campers umbilical that was installed by dealer. The 'gaping' hole is covered by plastic 7 pin housing. Ive never seen other that the plastic receptacles on the 7 pins. My only suggestion (but sounds like already in process) if you let dealer install just make sure its not all the way at bottom of wall like mine-never understood that. The second auxiliary I added and placed where more easily reached. Even if towing 5th wheel- linked picture of plug on tailgate pillar seems the last place to install, let alone cutting a hole in pillar. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/truck/dblurplzur2.jpg width=640 Im normally within a 1/4" if not rubbing the left pillar. I ended up wrapping with sst because the bed liner grabbed. You can see the scuffs in it.

RE: Who belongs to this TC?

Since its face book- you could ask to join group? Other than an Arctic Fox, (they all look the same to me) several of the pictures do look familiar-

RE: Lance right rear wing has gone soft

I also rebuilt our rear skirts but not a Lance, its an a Elkhorn. Thread on our effort to fix. Hopefully yours will be simpler. One of those put -off projects that only gets worse if not addressed. Its a probalmatic area for about all truck campers. Many have tackled. There are few good threads in the TCU sticky, couple Lances rebuilding the rear skirts.

RE: Annoying converter.

Correct, but as I understand it, that's also its max output, in amps, less any use by camper that it can charge at.

RE: Charging House Batteries while Driving

This Thread contains several misconceptions. For simplicity, I'll discuss SLA Batteries in a typical "Trailer"... {snip} ... there's another scheme which works really great. (I will write up my configuration, and insert a link from here when my new Thread is finished). Good lead in- I'm on the edge of my chair....:R I'll add to a OPs several month old question, that pretty much was already answered by others. Our truck does just fine, ok minimally, but recharged 2 group 29s in the camper and its own 2 batteries with a few hours on the road. And that was using factory auxillary charge wiring-but it all depends. Ive since added an auxillry charge line to offset 12v refer use, plus solar which is also adding.

RE: Annoying converter.

I was curious as to why the link provided showed modifications to the case? I replaced ours, a 6300 Q series with a PD4645 and its taking out the old charger section and sliding in the new one. Transferring the wires. Its a direct replacement-no modifications to sheet metal needed. The install you linked is older, on the Best converter page is a link to a more recent discussion by the same author. Point is swapping out lower section fairly simple. Included 12v LED indicator fuse panel a plus, charge mode indicator so you can "see" (or change) what its doing. AND its quite...better charging. http://www.bestconverter.com/4600-series-Upgrade-Kits_c_133.html . There are several threads on the forum, what steered me to the Progressive upgrade. Ours also hummed- ran hot, but it was the fan that roared that pushed me to swap (and better charging).

RE: Opinions from 4x4 dually owners on tires

Ummm am I reading you don't have swing out brackets? Or did you mean fabricating extensions, for the swing outs?
AnEv942 04/15/16 02:56pm Truck Campers
RE: Opinions from 4x4 dually owners on tires

That's a lot of tire 315/75R16 = 34.6"x12.4"R16 235/85R16 = 31.7"x9.3"R16 Wondering, beside the difference dia , how space gained between rears? I assume these extend past fenders? If wheels offset supply space you'd only gain half the difference in width of outer tire (1 1/2"?) I'm running 235s have about 1 1/2" space between and outer is just shy of fender width

RE: Carrying/ storing an electric bike

Cant set outside because of weather?might grow legs? Long coated steel cable to loc to truck, or thru wheels so it cant roll. As far as weather, cover of some sort. I use a simple large plastic garbage split lengthwise on our scooter. Keeps unnecessary water out of the instrument panel and seat dry. Cant imagine living with bike in aisle let alone rolling inside or even into truck? Could you modify the rear rack for wheel hoops. Wouldn't think it would be very heavy, stabilized to jacks?.

RE: first TC random questions

thx all for the help, my next issue is finding the correct part number for the torklift rear tie downs. I found the front tie down is part tlf2000 but the torklift website claims there is only aftermarket rear tie down options. Anybody with a 97 ish F250/350 know anything about this? thx again for the help. Very flustered with this all Um hadnt seen this earlier but looking at Torklifts application chart Im unsure if the #F2000 is correct for '97 short bed F250? http://www.torklift.com/documents/appguides/application_guide2016_web.pdf The rear, what Torklift is saying is that year did not come with factory hitch-if it has reciever hitch then its either dealer or P/O installed aftermarket. Just need to verify theres is room for 4" square of the tie down mount to be bolted on the side plates of the aftermarket hitch.

RE: Don't forget to re torque those lug nuts!

Ill only add check what your truck values are before ordering a wrench if inclined. Mine is 150-165#, so have 250# 1/2" drive. Ideally you want a wrench to use that is in mid of its range. Plus a higher rated wrench will usually have a longer handle- after a few times around 32 lug nuts @ 150+# the extra length/leverage will be appreciated. Clickers are really nice.

RE: Don't forget to re torque those lug nuts!

I'd say its what your comfortable with- but checking periodically, if nothing else, verifies there isn't something fundamentally wrong with setup. Also, uneqaul torque isnt adding to the fact, at least on our '01, that it loves to warp rotors. After initial re-torquing I've never found they needed it, so probably excessive, but still do check. To me its right there with pulling the dip stick, psi in the spare and glancing at all the reservoirs. After having tires rotated soon as I get home I check, often as not incorrect or all over the map. Its my truck so I check them if someone else has worked on it, and just for knowing before we hit the road with camper on. Point here is that torque should be rechecked within a few hundred miles of initial mounting. Most shops would check for you. I just walked out and checked Margarets car, she had tires rotated bout 300 miles ago. Check at 75# all good, then re-torqued to 100#, 3 of the wheels had one lug nut each at about 90#. Thanks for the reminder.

RE: Can I move my TC on a flat bed trailer?

The rear overhang on large camper would need to be accounted for. Would seller deliver?

RE: Please help... ? About rear custom fiberglass bumper for TC

agree sounds like "roll pan", your favorite search engine would yield lots of options. Unless the install of yours precludes might replace with factory bumper? Depends how what you have was mounted/ mods to truck but 'custom ones available that might match. 1st one that popped up roll pan @parts geek

RE: Onan 2500 Generator Dead Start Switch

Really need to track down a service manual for your unit/model. I only found this, its fairly old so dont know how simular or not. http://leipper.org/manuals/rv/onan-kv-repair-manual-981-0506.pdf Some of the schematics barely readable...section 7 outlines trouble shooting, what supposed to occur when pushing the button.

RE: Need info about Onan generator install

I cant help but some mounting kits/hardware available that might help http://www.power.cummins.com/PWON/PowerContent/WebConNA/SiteContent/en/Binary_Asset/pdf/rv/f-832.pdf
