RE: Black water tank flush

The water is still going in, it just doesn't sound like it is "rotating" The only real advantage to having it functional was that the tank monitor seemed to work fine after an occasional "spritzing"

Black water tank flush

2011 Montana Tank flusher always used to rumble quite loudly, but not today. Sounds like the water jet isn't randomly bouncing around. Is this something that can be fixed with an air compressor? Or is replacement the usual answer? Thanks in advance for your help

RE: Winegard Rayzar Antenna

Has anyone had any experience with the installation and operation with this antenna? I'm thinking of ditching the dish (I know that it's not a satellite dish). Another curious potential customer here. This is the self aiming model, correct? I have yet to locate anyone with first hand knowledge, customer or installing tech.

RE: Blow out or Use the pink stuff my personal review

Why is it that people will not drink out of their on-board tanks. Is the water source you have available to you not adequate? hard water? well water? We use pink anti freeze and drink/cook with the water

RE: Dicor

The web site shows they still carry Dicor. Myrtle Beach evidently didn't know this.

RE: Dicor

Did they say what this new product was? When they started with "this new product is so much better" I just left.
Jack Spratt 11/17/15 07:55pm Truck Campers

Went to Camping World to pick up some Dicor to touch up roof seams, and they said they were no longer carrying it, but were using a new product instead. Have others changed products?

RE: Stableload alternative

Energy Suspension was the company I was trying to think of. Thanks to all for your help. The homemade projects look interesting, and may be the way I go.

Stableload alternative

The other day someone posted pictures of a round rubber disc with a stud in the center to be used as an alternative to a lower stableload. Unfortunately I forgot to bookmark it, and can not locate the discussion. Thanks in advance if you can point me to the subject.

19.5 Wheels for 2011 GMC

Looking to getting 19.5 wheels and rims for my 2011 GMC 2500HD Which size tire do you use 225/70 R 19.5 or 245/70 R 19.5? Has anyone had Firestone FD 690 Plus? Or other recommendation, The Michelins look Pricey. Double Coins on the other hand are under $200/each. Thanks in advance JS

RE: Replacing the OTA TV Antenna

Keep us updated. I've been contemplating the same project, but am intimidated by the idea of putting a large hole in a leak free roof.

RE: '15 AF 811 Battery charging voltage

I was measuring across the battery poles with a voltmeter. Have not checked the water level But will check tomorrow along with the voltage while plugged in.

'15 AF 811 Battery charging voltage

When plugged in to shore power my batteries come up to about 13.0 volts. I was expecting a little more, 13.4? or so. Was this overly optimistic? Loading the camper using battery power alone, drew the batteries down to 12-11.9 volts. Lifting 4k lbs is a lot of work, but that seems to have drawn down fast. Both batteries seem to stay at the same voltage.

RE: Supersprings adjustability

Took the camper for a 20 mile ride on county roads today. Moderate to poor road conditions occasionally going sixty, There was no noticeable difference in the stiffer setting. But as said earlier, the camper already road well. It's a comfortable setup, so will leave it as is.

RE: Supersprings adjustability

Hi Bill Originally I had the forward hangar in the soft position and the back one in the middle. My AF 811 rode fine, but curiosity caused me to move the forward hangar to the middle hole. Unfortunately I have not put the camper on since, but the truck rides noticeably stiffer unloaded. Hope to be able to give you a better report soon. Hoping to get up to Gulf Hagas soon. This weekend the weather would have been perfect. Thanks again for your help in choosing the AF Jack

RE: Heki Skylight Shading

Good information to know. We're considering a new camper, and of course the Heki is standard equipment. I'm really considering ordering a camper and seeing if it can be deleted. Anyone have info if Lance can do this????? Again, looks like a good product. They would not let us change to a conventional vent and fantastic fan on the 855

RE: How to turn off outside speakers on a Arctic Fox 811

Update: Unfortunately AF never returned my call for assistance. The Fader on my unit lowers the volume on one inside and one outside speaker. Seems like a lot of effort to have to remove the outside speakers, cut the lead, replace, and then recaulk. Thanks again for the tips on this radio.

How to turn off outside speakers on a Arctic Fox 811

The subject says it all, 2015 AF 811S. Kenwood stereo. Fader and balance controls each affect one inside and one outside speaker. So I believe the unit is wired wrong, but maybe disconnecting the outside leads is the easiest answer. Thanks in advance for your help.

RE: 5th wheel hitch rails vs. camper

I use a sheet of 3/4" plywood with 2 X 4 spacers underneath. The 2 X 4 s are the same hieght as the hitch rails. Same here.
