RE: Crescent Lake, Deschutes Nat'l Forest

If water is a concern, Spring Campground is less than 3.5 miles by road and you will drive right past it on the way in and way out. It has potable water pressurized faucets. Since both campgrounds are managed by Hoodoo Recreation it shouldn't be an issue to fill up your totes. Check with the campground host when you get there. Dry camping is a great way to become proficient at water conservation!

RE: Crescent Lake, Deschutes Nat'l Forest

Here are two views so you can identify your campsite on the map and then see what it looks like on Google Earth. https://c1.staticflickr.com/3/2699/32938318742_2c2ea163be_b.jpg https://c1.staticflickr.com/4/3706/32938318532_d2779b70ce_b.jpg

RE: How fast did you get your Torklift stuff?

Another Amazon Prime customer. Ordered on 5/24/16. Back mounts shipped the same day from a distributor and arrived on 5/26. Front mounts shipped the next day from Amazon and arrived 5/27. Of course they had them in stock at the time.

RE: Replacement locks for compartments?

I recently had our TC into the dealer for some warranty work. The compartment where the remote jacks control and remote are located is only accessible with the Global Link key. When I went to pick up the camper the workers had to hunt down the service guy who had the only keys to the rig so they could jack up the camper and remove the trailer it was sitting on, since their CH751 key wouldn't open the compartment door. I guess they didn't think to ask me for the key!

RE: External hard Drive for Dish VIP 211K

I bought this (2Tb) in 2015 for a VIP211K. It did have the external power adaptor. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00HFRWXV0/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&psc=1

RE: Memory foam mattress recommendations.

Lastingimpressionsfoam.com Best improvement we have made to our RV's. Bought it for the 5th wheel we had and when we traded it for our TC we told the salesperson that it was going to be traded out from the 5'r to the Arctic Fox. We went with the 10" thick. No more sore back in the morning.

RE: Crescent Lake, Deschutes Nat'l Forest

You might consider reserving a spot at the Crescent Junction RV Park. It's only 3 miles to the lake and you can use the Resort boat launch at no charge. Water, electric, and sewer hookups. Also quick access to the amenities such as fuel, groceries, food. I have stayed there multiple times and can recommend them. Not quite the experience of campground or boondocking camping but it might be your best option for the timing you require.

RE: Replacement locks for compartments?

If your RV entry door latch mechanism is made by Global Link, you can key lock the baggage doors with the same key as the entry door. It's what I did with mine. One less key to carry around. http://www.rvlocksandmore.com/Global-Link-and-Fastec-FIC-Brand-RV-Locks-and-Keys/CH-751-CK-330/CLB-Cam-Lock-Barrel?whence=#.WJ4MOFUrK00

RE: On Board Generator vs Portable Generator

X2 My travel trailer came with an Onan 2500 LP built in. I also use my Honda 2000i and always bring it with me camping. Pros: Honda is portable, take it anywhere or don't, its quiet, long run time. Onan LP super convenient push button, built in, no theft, no gummed up carb if it sits. Cons: Honda wants to grow legs so you have to chain it down, limited power, lug it along. Onan LP eats propane under load, more noisy and some vibration since its mounted on the trailer.

RE: No dinnet

I removed my dinnete and replaced it with a lazyboy reclining love seat. Best move I have made with the camper. Artic Fox 811 Would love to hear more about how you did this! Photos would be a bonus. Seriously interested in doing something similar in our AF992.

RE: Running a generator in inclement weather

We have had our EU2000i for over 15 years. Our new AF camper came with an Onan 2500 built in generator. I will not subject nearby campsites to the sound of the built in generator other than to run the jacks when loading up to head home, as I have the Honda buttoned up and carb run out of gas by that time. If you don't own the camper yet, why not get one with a built in generator? Then you have zero hassles with the weather, theft, storage, stringing cords, storing gas, storing generator(s). On a cold, rainy or snowy day, you stay inside your camper all warm and cozy, and just press a button on the wall to start the generator.

RE: Question about tire and wheel upgrade ...

Just remember to check the torque on your lug nuts following a tire change after the first 50, 100, and 150 miles(approx).

RE: Downsizing to TC and a few questions

Since it is a Ford dealer, tell them you want a printed copy of the Ford OASIS report. It will detail any work performed on that truck by a Ford dealer.

RE: Do you unload you camper from truck when camping?

I always take the camper off the truck when camping. I have a similar setup as the OP towing a driftboat. There are "stabilizers" available but never found it necessary to do that with our camper. The AF992 does not have a "see through" window from the front to back, so it is much easier to back the boat trailer sans camper.

RE: Arctic Fox 990 is my choice - but convince me otherwise!

If you go with the AF990 I would recommend you look at retrofitting a "Fox Landing" step. Definitely one of the best recent innovations for TC's. We absolutely love ours! https://www.torklift.com/index.php/products/truck-camper-bumpers/fox-landing-bumper I think I would like to buy an Arctic Fox 990 (used) because... Arctic Fox includes a manual backup crank for the slideout in case one runs out the battery while boondocking :) Arctic Fox 990 water tank sizes are SUBSTANTIALLY bigger than comparable campers from most other manufacturers (we are big water users) Wet bath near back door is to our liking for returning from muddy adventures (not unique to AF) Looks like squeezing in to use the bathroom with the slideout in is do-able, and it might be possible to have the factory install one of their couch/sofa options replacing the dinette which is even easier to squeeze by Do any other brands satisfy these conditions? Looking to buy used around 2012 or newer.

RE: Interior Frig Fans

We had the pictured type of fan in our previous 5th wheel and now in our TC. I have a wireless temp monitor in the fridge. Yes, they do help the cooling temp by about 3-5 degrees lower. Also excellent for distributing the cold air throughout the interior of your fridge. If you buy one, get the option for a fan grill which will keep items from being pushed into the fan blades and breaking them.

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

Thank you! Much appreciated. I got a wired one .... I had read too many mixed review about the wireless ones. Here is a link to the one I got. LINK A couple things I like about this one is that it will take 3 inputs. I am going to add another at the bumper for assistance in hooking up the boat.....The other thing is that the power to the camera comes thru the cable ... on the camera that comes with it. There is a lead on the multiplexer connection that power the camera...So you can control the power from the cab of the truck instead of wiring it into running or backup lights. I just bought a cigarette lighter adapter that has a power switch on it and can light up the monitor and camera at the push of a button. I am going to put a cheap license plate type camera for the other one and will probably power it from the backup lights. I was a real PITA to run the wire on my camper, but it turned that when I pulled the bottom off the camper to get the wire thru I found a cross brace holding up the fresh water tank that was sagging badly .... So I reinforced it while I was at it and probably save a future disaster. What did you get(models?) Wireless or wired from camera to monitor? Finished installation of my rear view camera and pulled the boat behind it for the first time..... being able to see everything going on back there with the camera is NICE.
