RE: 2015 Chevy 2500HD/1996 Lance 8000?

Here is the 1996 Lance brochure Click Here. After water,propane,batteries and stuff it could come to 3,500-4,000lbs. I would go to a spring shop and tell them what you are loading and add the springs needed. Then make sure the tires are up to the load you are going to put on them. Hellwig Big Wig sway bar will help keep you steady on the turns.

RE: Wave Heater Install

OP, nice creative install! Jim Thanks. I did see how you installed yours and that is a great way to do it. My TC is smaller and there is no room for that kind of install in it for the Wave 6. Sometimes we have to improvise with TC's.That's why I like this style of RVing and the people that do it. While other RV's are backing up Truck Campers keep going!

RE: Wave Heater Install

Clever...I wouldn't have thought to use an articulating arm for heater. Ours is wall mounted- having the ability to adjust direction would be nice. Does the mount you used lock down for travel or do you remove? The arm slides off the wall mount and I stow it in the closet. The Wave is put in the optional cover and back in the box it came in and stowed in the closet with the quick disconnect hose.

Wave Heater Install

I found a way to install my Wave Heater so it is off the floor. The hose is T'd off of the stove and ran it through the stove floor using threaded PVC. http://i.imgur.com/9Y1p2zP.jpg?3 Then the hose runs to the front through the wall and mounted. http://i.imgur.com/3tmJiHj.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/1OrirHK.jpg?2 I found a TV mounting kit at Camping World that works.It slides out of the wall mount for travel and comes with two wall mounts if you needed another location. http://i.imgur.com/NFGo3bK.jpg?1 Wall mount installed. http://i.imgur.com/O5btGnc.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/S4kKpIr.jpg?1 Now I use a aluminum baking sheet to mount the Wave Heater. http://i.imgur.com/BiHhubj.jpg?1 http://i.imgur.com/CTNe33n.jpg?2 I used hex head bolts sized to fit in the mounting holes on the baking sheet. Used two nuts with lock washers to extend the hex head out just enough to mount the heater. http://i.imgur.com/tKEgaxC.jpg?1 I made sure it had the correct clearance from the ceiling that are in the heater mounting instructions. http://i.imgur.com/QlmoFOQ.jpg?1 The baking sheet makes it easy to grab on to turn it in the direction you want. http://i.imgur.com/wjBexP0.jpg?1 At this location on my Northstar Laredo it's facing the bathroom. http://i.imgur.com/tKEgaxC.jpg?2 This is it in use on a trip. The hose is coiled and works great in any position. The dogs (Golden Retrievers) can move inside the TC without getting burned. I like that it stays cleaner off the floor. http://i.imgur.com/bMRvyOl.jpg?1 When not in use or just passing by I move it against the closet door. http://i.imgur.com/F0aZfyY.jpg?1 On low with the Wave 6 I was getting 30 degrees warmer than outside temps with propper ventilation. I'm very happy with this set up. So when I see the boondocking mountain snowman...I just Wave 6! http://i.imgur.com/Y1LxGZQ.jpg?1
