RE: AF990 on F350 CC SRW

So, my point is that the mods we do don't change the door sticker but do change what the truck is capable of handling and I'm ok with that. I'm with you!

RE: AF990 on F350 CC SRW

12880-11500=1380. But 5100+8650 is not 12880. Ask Google if you need to. :D You must be aware that front axle weight + rear axle weight does not equal gross vehicle weight? While the front axle weighed 5,100 and the rear axle weighed 8,650, the total vehicle weight(both axles on scale at the same time) was 13,400. With a GVWR of 11,500 the truck is over GVRW by 1,900 which isn't close to the 3,750 figure from GeoBoy. WeightPolice:R

RE: AF990 on F350 CC SRW

I appreciate you posting weights, I recently purchased a 992 so I'll see how close it is when I get it prepped. Todd Fully loaded with diesel, water, propane, all the necessities, I am at 5,100# on the front axle and 8,650# on the rear axle. 3,750 over GVW! Not! But thanks for your concern.

RE: Cpap

I have two Group 27 12V batteries hooked up in parallel that are dedicated to CPAP use. I can get 4-5 nights of usage running off an inverter WITH the heated humidifier in use. This has worked for over 10 years for me. The batteries are also hooked up to a 3.5A Smart Charger so if I am running the generator it will help to recharge the batteries(or at home between trips hooked up to shore power). The OP should have no problem with what he has stipulated in his question to the forum.

RE: New Breakfast Ideas Needed for 2018 RV'ing season!

My husband splashes tobacco sauce on it. Is that from spitting or the drool out of the corner of the mouth?:E

RE: DIY Generator Quiet Box

Here you go! Materials list and photos, but no drawings. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/28718017/srt/pa/pging/1/page/5.cfm Starting with my post on 04/13/16 @ 03:57pm Read all 6 pages of the entire thread for more information. It would be helpful to know which Champion model you have.

RE: Distance From Dealership When Considering a New Truck Camper

For warranty repair work, your camper is likely to sit at the dealer for weeks, if not a month or more. 1) It will sit waiting to get into the work shop. 2) There will be time diagnosing what the problem is. 3) There will be time waiting for the manufacturer to approve the warranty work. 4) There will be time waiting for parts that need to be ordered if the dealer does not have it in stock. 5) There will be time that the rig sits waiting to get back into the work shop. 6) There will be time that the rig is being worked on. Even for a two hour trip(4 hour round trip?) your warranty repair will likely entail at least two trips to the dealer. One to deliver your camper to them and one to pick it back up from them. As others have written, you will be best served to find a local shop that is authorized to do warranty repair on your brand or do the work yourself. Many times, the manufacturer will work with the buyer to provide parts at no charge to you rather than pay the dealer to perform the repairs.

RE: You can pump your own in parts of Oregon now

yep if you don't like it or it bothers you keep out I miss Tom McCall! You non-Oregonian's probably won't get that.

RE: You can pump your own in parts of Oregon now

In order to pump your own gas in "rural" Oregon the gas pumps have to accept credit/debit card payments(many have never been updated) and the station has to be willing to participate in self service. Don't expect that all Oregon "rural" fuel facilities will allow you to pump your own gas, as most currently do not. With respect to diesel, some stations are only "self service", while others won't allow it(station owner decision).

RE: Fast Gun locks

No locks, but the camper on truck is seldom left unattended. I offload the camper upon arrival at my destination and the Fastguns come off and are stored in the back seat of the truck.

RE: Stove vent

This is an interesting and unique modification found on the Northwood RV Owners Association website using magnets to hold the vent door closed until the exhaust fan is turned on. http://www.nroa2003.com/forum/forum/message-board/modifications/262110-ventline-exhaust-vent-mod I think this could be done without removing the vent housing from the RV wall exterior. Well, evidently I "misquoted myself" on doing this without removing the housing. I did remove it and installed the magnets(one inside the housing + one on the outside of the vent flap) on each side. Works like a charm!

RE: Tank sensor wiring issue...

I had the same problem with a brand new Arctic Fox Pickup Camper. It was replaced under warranty with the following problem description. "It was the Sensor Pac. R&R the gray tank Sensor Pac. Tested on Monitor, test OK. This fixed the problem and the tank has read adequately for the past year.

RE: Easy to store hashbrowns

What is the rehydrating process? Fill carton with boiling water, let stand for 12 minutes, drain and cook. I could see a use for this product if freezing was an issue(no space or no freezer), but I can cook hash browns from frozen in less than 12 minutes........FWIW.

RE: how much propane in tank?

I use a simple handheld baggage scale to weigh my DOT cylinders. I think it cost about $9... #MeToo

RE: Mini-catalytic heater for keeping tanks warm off-grid??

The real issue is transporting the box -- we don't have any spare room in the cargo bay of our truck. Our soundbox gets put on the dinette table(on top of a towel to prevent damage) and secured in place with a ratchet strap. Works great!

RE: Wave Heater Install

When set on the low setting our Wave6 heater burns about 1/3 gallon of propane in 10 hours of use(verified by weight). We open two opposing windows and a roof vent 1/2 inch when using the cat heater. There is minimal condensation which collects in the window drains camping in weather where the outside temperatures reach mid 20's. The minimum inside temperature is in the upper 50's without using the camper furnace. On another note, we have two CO monitors in the camper. One is an Atwood(Model# 32703) which is RV approved and has a digital readout. The Wave6 has NEVER caused the readout to register any CO level. Use of the oven without having the vent fan on is another story!
