RE: How to deploy dually swingout brackets?

I briefly looked when I stumbled on the Atwood video for one on the HJs but didnt see anything. Got camera? This question on useage comes up from time to time.

RE: Oven users unite!

huh Well its become an association with camping- before butter or jam is slicing bottom off biscuits..never thought about trying something to alleviate that... Having never looked, think Ill try the AirBake, but look at the stones. Interesting.

RE: How to deploy dually swingout brackets?

Heres a video, these are Atwood but all similar. Bout half way at minute 9: is where it shows dually bracket, again at 11:30. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lTCm_RQ8ySM Basically you just swing out or in. When loaded on truck they would be in travel position-swung close to truck, they will drop into slots to stay in that position. TO swing out- lift up on jack to pull out of slots then rotate outward. (do both sides). Then lowere jacks, As jack is lowered it will raise into matching slots to stay in out position for off loading. Ensure slots are aligned and will lock or interface before lifting. When off loading on truck would be opposite, once under camper raise jacks, the jack will (should) fall out of slot, swing over toward truck to lock, dropping into slots. Either getting in or of slots may require a bit of wiggling jacks. edit-DONT put your finger in/near the slot as shown in video-it would hurt? a lot.

RE: tiedowns ,fast gun or derringer ?

Not sure- about white or if a set of 2 can be had. You might contact Torklift. Their site shows only black aluminum bodies now (with same part number as old polished stainless). Be finding some still on the shelf somewhere... Few references for older stock still out there- if available unknown Torklift S9525 white Torklift S9528 polished SST (same p/n as new al. black) http://www.americanrvcompany.com/Torklift-S9525-Fastgun-Derringer-Retrofit-Stainless-White-4-Pack lists the older white (but pic is polished) might call to see if they have them.

RE: tiedowns ,fast gun or derringer ?

Ya if you have the turnbuckles the derringers pretty flexible. Its either just cutting off turnbuckle eye and threading into derringer (you may have to thread end of turnbuckle rod), replace with all thread or use included eye, though you may still need to cut rod depending on length. The eye simplest but you end up with separate pieces. http://www.torklift.com/index.php/products/turnbuckles/derringer-handles

RE: DIY Gray Water Tank and Ceiling Storage

Clever with the sliding rack. On the water bucket- Im assuming the lids not water tight so might find a dishpan to set in? On the retainers, several hardware items that would work, small hasps, hook & eye etc. Think though as it wont take much to keep them from sliding out, something across front easily attached. Maybe 2 screw in eyes (like on ceiling) into center rails, one closed-one open enough to lift dowel out, dowel long enough to span just a bit past center bucket with pins (nails) so it cant slide out. Or carved square stock, but operates same, rounded end to stick in, thru one eye, slotted to be capture from sliding. Seems like one of those simple projects you could spend more time eyeballing trying to be creative than actually doing.... Do they 'inspect' the campers? Isn't the point just not dumping on the ground-not how you manage that.

RE: Suspension options. Deaver springs or air bags, etc?

Weight on '95 Sterling 10.25" DRW is about right, with ~8250# on the rear axle(GAW) just 1st quick source with some numbers http://www.fourwheeler.com/how-to/transmission-drivetrain/129-0506-ford-1025-1050-inch-axle-tips/

RE: Camper shifting in pickup box.

... As I drive down the road, the camper gradually shifts toward the passenger side of the vehicle. As the camper shifts, the chains on the drivers side get loose... I also at first read if camper moved away from tiedown it would tighter not looser, but it sounds like you must have a pretty good angle ,outboard at top, on tiedown, so as camper moves away the distance between mounts decreases (becoming more vertical), opposite side does get tighter-exerting more force. Didnt say if you have bed mat, that would be 1st recommendation if you dont have one. Cant do much about the angle of tiedowns (unless you had Torklifts)so one the other guides or limiting spacers would be next item. Ours will move sometimes though not much. The other plus using bed mat (made to fit) its nice when picking up something that might blow out, ie couple of 8' 1x2s, just flip over the mat slid em under.

RE: Rear awning

We have Carefree trucking awning. Its sole purpose was getting in out of camper when raining, shade to have door open etc. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/p90410s.jpg height=480 width=640 Does offer some shade to back of camper but as it only extends 4'(autorafter) not so much a shade awning to lounge under. Yes there a better shade awning options, also more expensive- depends on its intended use. http://scottiescatalog.com/Truckin-Awn_c22.htm for options on the truckin awn. Ours is 9 1/2 years old. Fairly straight forward install. http://i39.photobucket.com/albums/e178/AnEv942/ourelkhorn/p90409s.jpg height=480 width=640 Maximizing size hardest part. The standard has 36" projection -the auto rafter 48". The 48" keeps the rain and sun outside when door open.

RE: Is this utility bed suitable for a TC?

Ive seen a couple of those with campers. First one I saw at Meteor Crater, oddly he was from this area of CA. First utility bed I had ever seen with the "skin" and was pretty taken with it. Nice though added weight of the utility box might issue for use with camper, at least for me. Then again I couldnt get past cost. But it would be nice.

RE: 89 Lance 4000 wiring

Simple constant duty solenoid, triggered by ignition- key on (w/manual switch so you can disable if/when wanted), is what many and my self included use. Your favorite auto parts. A quick search of the forums would show many installs. This thread 3rd pic shows solenoid http://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/26528959.cfm.

RE: 89 Lance 4000 wiring

Plan B is your best option- testing to determine. Even IF standard doesnt mean PO adhered. Normally brake & signal fed by same wire, 1 for left (Yellow) & 1 for right (Green). Tail/running lights 1 wire (Brown), & one for ground which typically is white. Though you said black & white are 'large' and usually charge and ground are same size. Doubt red is brake aux, (truck camper) possibly if wired thats charge line input or back up if you had. Those 3 red/black and white are the ones that likely need tracing/testing

RE: Exterior charging port

Not knowing exactly what your looking at my first thought is auxiliary battery would need fairly heavy connectors & wiring. Access to plug in charger (or solar panel w/controller) could be quite a bit smaller. If Palamino has 'port' that you think would work for both Id contact them. They may offer source. There are a lot of remote battery charging/jumping posts available. remote terminals.. Sources on Ebay Different types of quick connects quick connect Pre made panles bit expensive. IT may be simpler to hard wire an Anderson connector for the aux battery. (or other type of plug rated for use)powerpole-accessories Found this pic on www.truckcampermagazine.com/news/tcm-exclusive-2014-palomino-rv-announcements http://i.imgur.com/nIuCGWv.jpg Nice panel..other than the box, remote battery posts linked above. Think Id want it somewhere protected, definantly a kill switch and fused. Lil overkill for connecting solar or external charger. For small solar panle simple 2 pin SAE connecector would work, or low amp charger (not for battery) similar to SAE connector

RE: Summerwind 811S weight

I assume the as built weight sticker has been removed? Summerwind was pretty good at giving real weights. The brochure weights, dry or wet, still reflect camper with NO options. Elec jacks, AirC, awnings, microwave, generator etc. Though 1000# seems high on 811. That would include tiedowns etc (diesel fuel @~7# per gal)what you load with camper. Bottom line though is scale weights. We seriously were looking at a S/W 911S-really nice camper, but the real optioned out weight numbers put it out of our range. But it was an expected 3500# plus gear, Your 811 weights kinda puzzling. Irregardless if thats what it weighs...its addressing

RE: What campers

Um on your 2500? The slide maybe, but older dry bath thats going to be the hard part. Thats a lot of camper...

RE: LED interior lighting for older TC

Too color, 'warm white' closer to incandescent in color. Yes there have been some general improvements in LED tech, but doesn't mean applied across the board. Not all will tolerate the varying voltages (high) seen in campers. As to varying brightness with regulated LEDS, Ive never noted any difference with normal voltage fluctuations, I dont think you would? Im unsure about a failed LED cause for concern with fire? Similar to a blown fuse, burnt/overdriven emitter ceases to function. Earlier unregulated non-smd bulbs I had tried got pretty hot though nothing near incandescent (till they failed).

RE: 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod - 10. Galley & Greatroom

Man thats a lot of sink... As too the stepped drawer, I built one. Seemed obvious to utilize space, however its proved problematic, though ours is shorter the last half or back end. In your case being side shorter simple dowel might alleviate? That said, depth of drawers. Are there other shallower drawers, for kitchen stuff etc? Deep is nice for storage but for item retrieval shallow easier. I understand the material reuse, but seems top drawer would be more usable as 2. Appreciate the T slides but they do use up space. Know 1st response answer if I suggested smaller sinks to Margaret but I 'think' she'd rather have work/counter space and easy to use drawers. Just an observation.

RE: Used Honda 2000 value?

Not so sure-I'll be the devils advocate, $750 while a good price compared to new it is 3 years old. Not so cheap that I'd be jumping out of my chair, it wouldnt sway me not getting new, IMO. Its out of warranty (3 years) though may last for ever. The 15hours-maybe honest-but 750 lot of coin. I didnt really look but found one for 899 free ship which is what Id be comparing against- http://www.electricgeneratordepot.com/honda-super-quiet-light-weight-inverter-2000w-120v-fuel-efficient-generator-with-parallel-capability-and-oil-alert

RE: Tork lift outside arms compatibility

Problem with the Torklifts app. guides they do not list the arms and the mounts separately, part numbers are for both. Generally its the mount thats unique. Your fronts should be same (arms) rear- one variable is hitch. but I will say this when I switched factory receiver (01 F250) to super hitch, I also ordered new rear mounts. The arms were the same as my old ones (and same as used on fronts) only the mounts attaching to the hitch was different. http://www.torklift.com/documents/appguides/application_guide.pdf but a call or note to Torklift should verify.
