RE: Can anyone help me identify this truck camper?-It's home!

Thats very cool-vintage camper on jeep-the angular lines look like they were meant for each other. Not sure where it could lead... but the dealer is still in business. https://www.mapquest.com/us/massachusetts/business-brockton/bradford-rv-center-279706058 though now call Bradford Rv. They 'might' be interested in a camper being refurbed that was purchased from them some 50 years ago.

RE: Transmission question.

Possibly, if lift was enough to throw off driveline angle, though some 'lift kits' make allowance for that.

RE: Lance TC Electrical Systems?

Plugging in fan to AC 110 receptacles? Yes it would need shore or generator (or inverter). Solar doesnt supply AC only DC

RE: Eagle Cap 1160 Refrigerator Problem

If you have a fan, mirror or camera to see it. Ours is about in the middle of wall. I didn't know we had one till a few years back and accidentally discovered looking down & taking a picture for someone showing flue...To my knowledge fan has never come on. Our factory thermo disk is 158°, its mounted to fins but at outer side- I jumped thermo to verify fan working- it does and its loud. But as to the 'kink', may or may not be issue with fridge, unlikely- however if its actually pinching hose needs to be addressed. Cant imagine that perfect kink to restrict gas so flame still lights but inadequate to heat? Stranger stuff has happened, easily checked. Light fridge with slide in, and compare with slide out. But such a small flame agree, unlikly -.

RE: I'm new to the TC world

Well not an Outfitter owner but I'll say welcome anyway:) Congrats on your 'new' camper. As to the pressure testing- can this even be done, practically, on a pop top? Curious.

RE: Camping on Interstate 5 around the 46 in California?

Well-simplifies the decision process. Just outside of Paso Robles- https://www.google.com/maps/@35.7485977,-120.8947406,15z/data=!5m1!1e1?hl=en Lot of the listings under Lake Nacimiento Resort. Oak Knoll just one the campground loops within park.

RE: Camping on Interstate 5 around the 46 in California?

Something to look at? ... not much out there http://www.bing.com/mapspreview?q=Intersta+5+and+hiway+46+rv&mkt=en&FORM=HDRSC4 But there's an RV park in Lost Hills, think it used to be a KOA, block from 5/46 http://losthillsrvpark.com/NOT a destination but we stayed there one night stopover. Cant say all that quite so close to freeway, stations etc but convenient fuel food services. Havent been over 46 in a while but curious whats at Blackwells corner now? Didnt use to be any thing but a place to buy nuts. The 58 is a really nice drive if you have time, once you get into the hills. Very scenic. It'll add a good hour or better but once over if you turn left/south toward Santa Margartia Lake (though almost empty) but nice campground, trails, theres also KOA just before the lake. Or right/north into town of Santa Margarita and onto 101 to Astacasdero, 41 over to Hiway1/Morro Bay. All about time...

RE: What do you use for dually air pressure gauge and inflator

Just need a dual head chuck for filling, also on the gauge you carry. Either,for me, flex hose just easier to twist around. The fillers with gauge are nice as you don't need to remove, then check air with gauge. Though I still use gauge when done. Fillers Im partial to ones with pop out scale verses gauge or window. You can get a USA made Milton506 for 30ish http://i.imgur.com/cJnFloh.jpg height=480 width=640 or a HarborFreight that I picked up on impulse one day for 7. You can spend as much or little as you want-several configurations as far as gauges. Other than recommending carrying your own gauge cause Ive found filling station gauges all over the map, is to look at the angle of dual chuck. I have one shown in pic that I use for most stuff around the house, the angle is so shallow physically cannot use inside chuck to fill on the outside dual. Id also not recommend hose extensions on truck. I used on previous MH because of the liners/hubcaps that needed removing, they are more hassle & problematic IMO than learning to seat a dual head chuck.

RE: 1996 Lance Squire 3000 Questions:

Sounds like something a previous owner added. Just thermal. I've considered often of adding an inner window to the inside frame, just never followed thru. Needs to be semi sealed to be really effective. Primarily for same thermal reasons- ours sweats/makes water something fierce with the smallest amount of temperature difference, though ours is sloped. Also would help alot I think with direct sun. Pictures?

RE: Advice from Ford owners needed.

Ranchos over what ever the 'other' brand are good - regardless of ORW opinion but yes its the lift-lack of overloads (and probably softer spring rate). Unless your air bags are tied together as other have mentioned, which would add to any sway (air in one bag instead of compressing is pushed into other bag) which is something to check. Curious how the air bags were compensated for with the lift. Lift kits generally are designed to lift, not for heavy loads, and better lift kits the springs are more compliant for articulation. Neither good for camper. I wouldnt spring for a set of shocks just yet though because they would need to be fit for the lift, and IF you dump you'll be buying more shocks.

RE: TP roll holder

Ha- probably easier to install too but at least its useable and not stuck on the door.

RE: Torklift

You are correct-just need to look at your springs-see if they already have holes.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Vacuumed the empty seed hulls & shells from the valley on our 7.3 diesel, that and mop out the accumulated oil. Something needed periodically- but hadn't checked in a while. Kept smelling something after out last outing. All I can think of is the retained heat in the block that attracts critters. Found half of our battery blanket insulation stuffed on the manifold, saturated in oil...I hate mieces.

TP roll holder

Campers wet bath gets a new toilet paper holder. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll10.jpg height=480 width=640 Ive seen these for ever-Oceanair Dryroll paper holder. Seemed a perfect solve for wet bath. However $50-60 price always set me back so dealt with what we had. Paper on the back side of door worked as far as kept it dry butt... http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll1.jpg height=480 width=640 The issue: to say the least use of the on door roll inconvenient. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll2.jpg height=480 width=640 The solve. Stumbled upon folks selling for half of what I'd seen before and ordered. Unit arrived, Oceanair Dry Roll, pretty nice. Now I need to figure out if it will fit... Wall opposite toilet faces the wardrobe closet with propane tank under neath. I guestimated there was room between to flush mount, needs 2 7/8". Tried measuring by pulling out drawer above propane tank box and measuring from back side of shower wall to door frame. Then measured inside bath to door frame. A lot of subtractive numbers still only told me 'it's close' and it 'might' fit. Decided only way to really verify was drilling a hole. Figured once thru I could accurately verify fit and there isn't any structural members inside wall. If doesn't fit I'll plug hole or use for something. Drill went thru fiberglass then within 1/4" hit again. Wall is about 1 1/4 thick? probed around and theres a layer of luan directly on other side of fiberglass. Puzzling but drilled thru. From the closet side probed some more. What I determined was its the closet wall. Not attached to shower wall. 2 layers of luan with 1x2 frame inside. Ive been in the door wall which is attached to fiberglass. Kinda thru me. Measuring thru drill hole and I got 3" to bubble wrap on propane box. Mile of room. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll3.jpg height=480 width=640 Stalled...Took me 2 hours to finally cut. Work around for 1/2" hole easy if something went awry, Cutting a 6" square gave me great pause. Though did give the time to note; mounted in center of wall directly in front of toilet where I was going to mount, when standing at the sink you'd be bumping it. Moved it closer to sink, perfect. Taking that as an OK to proceed, taped up provided template and more tape to protect fiberglass. Drilled corner holes. Used a jig saw for shorter stroke and cutting all 3 walls at once. Wheel or sonic cutter would have cut fiberglass cleaner but more mess. Used fairly coarse blade. Chipped the glass a bit but cut luan like paper, as long as I kept feed slow, otherwise the luan started bouncing. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll4.jpg height=480 width=640 Then cutting various thickness of spacers to fill wall voids. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll5.jpg height=480 width=640 Inserted with a profuse amount of glue. Used several clamps, let it set overnight. Next day removed clamps filed & cleaned up the hole. Getting ready to install holder noted the last step in instructions. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll7.jpg height=480 width=640 Um -how do you do that? Should be like step 3. You need to caulk the mount flange to body, from the back side BEFORE mounting and regardless of how much water might be seen as theres a good 1/8" gap at sides. Caulked flange to body then laid a bead on flange surface, mounted to wall. I over-sized the holes thru fiberglass, pilot thru wood. Used longer screws to go completely into and thru wood. Bigger heads necessitated installing the flat faced bungs upside down as they wouldn't set flush, inside edge is round. That works. Installed. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll12.jpg height=480 width=640 The lid has a gear that spins roll pulling the paper back in or out, kinda neat. Also keeps from freely spooling. Not real consistent in delivery but then again this isn't a dispenser. Paper will still roll on the tube like normal holder. We'll probably use like this, partially open so splash from sink doesn't get paper wet. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/Shower/tproll14.jpg height=480 width=640 Removed the old holder-nice, full access into cabinet. Id add when I ordered it was described as off white, half expecting beige or ivory as picture looked dark, but looks white too me.
