RE: Trip report, Overland Expo East

Looks like it was a success. We always have a good time at the OX in Flagstaff. Sadly, after my experiences at this year's event in Flagstaff, I doubt that I'll ever choose to attend another :( Cheers -Mark Well this is disappointing to hear this! I really enjoyed your classes on TC electrical, very well thought out and conveyed to the class, sorry you had a bad experience. We will miss you next year.

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

Put it in storage, getting the TH ready for another desert season in the ISDRA.

RE: Hellwig or Roadmaster sway bar?

What I am curious about is if that is still something you can easily change after the fact or if it would be a big PITA to change it later if you decided it needed to change and even change it around until you got it dialed in for your application. I have a Bigwig and yes it adjustable, has 3 settings (holes) on the end of the bar. I do adjust mine, when the camper is on I have it set in the middle, when I pull the 5th wheel I set it to the inward hole. Takes about 10 minutes a side to unbolt the end and move it. It's been a great addition, takes a lot of side to side wobble out, when transitioning uneven surfaces

RE: Super Sport Sand Show

Good Show, lots to see, renewed a couple of memberships. Found out KC makes replacement LED inserts for the Daylighter series lights, for those of us who still use them. Boy have SxS's taken over, seems like everyone is making something for them. Reminds me of the early 2000's when the long travels were the thing to have. Yes, the side porches were very unique. The large Warrior Lifestyles 5th wheel was nice, I too like the open concept. Something I found interesting was, it said it was by Weekend Warrior on the side. I thought that name died when WW went out of Biz.

Super Sport Sand Show

It's that time again, the SSSS is this weekend. Super Sport Sand Show Even if your not in to the desert thing, but are in the market for a TH, this is a good place to see lots of TH's. It seems every year it gets bigger with more and more TH's to see. We like going just to look at the new rigs and maybe find some cool offroad stuff we can't live without.

RE: Labor Day Weekend: Where are you going?

TC is going into storage and getting the TH ready for another desert season, change oil in gen, wash, wax and restock. Maybe going to a friends house in the mountains for a BBQ.

RE: The ace of FT truck campers tells all: Pt. II

A modern day story of the ilk of; “Travels with Charlie?” That is one I would go see. It is always a pleasure to see you and all of the Xtreme-TC'ers while we were at the OX, I guess it's now the WOX (Western OX). You read my mind with the "Travels with Charley" reference, very Steinbeckesk. You and your Scottie are living the life for sure. When you get in the SoCal desert, send me a PM and we'll camp with you for a few days. Safe travels.

RE: The ace of FT truck campers tells all: Pt. II

Wow, what a great read. Bryan is the ultimate in x-boondocking and a true outdoorsman. He is living a life only a few can hope achieve or in some cases even understand in the complexity of what it takes to do this in a TC. These articles have open a few eyes I am sure. Thanks Mike and Bryan. So much for being a man of mystery! Two articles and counting, maybe a movie deal next?LOL

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

Upgraded the orginal analog t-stat a digital http://i1343.photobucket.com/albums/o785/ckenterprise/001_zps4041df19.jpg height=640 width=480 While I was in the upgrade mode, I also installed a Trimetric meter and shunt.

RE: Fifth wheel hitch

I also have a 5th wheel and have Reese SS hitch but not a slider. The four "pucks" stick up about 1/4" above bed floor. I use a 1/2" sheet of the closed cell foam board in the bed. The TC just crushes the foam around the pucks and makes a smooth surface for the TC. The TC also settles into the foam a bit too, so there is no movement side to side. I have been using the same sheet of foam for a couple of years now and it hasn't deteriorated much at all.

RE: Larger TV

If you have the wooden swivel TV enclosure (living area) that came in some of WW's, you can remove that and put in up to a 30"er on an wall mount arm. I removed the enclosure and installed a 26" LCD in mine. In the bedroom if you have the corner TV enclosure you can either remove it or cut the opening larger. I opened up the enclosure and put in a 19" LCD in mine. I am thinking of removing the entrie shelf and end wall in the living area to open it up some to be able put in a 32" or larger at a lower height. The shelf currently limits the height to an odd height for viewing.

RE: Sierra Spine Tingling road trip

Great report Jefe, we were just a little west of you, off the 120 and 395, went all the way to Carson City, NV. Love that area, Yosemite was too crowded though, had to go down the eastern slope a bit to find a nice little NFS camping spot.
River&Sand 08/06/14 03:25pm Truck Campers

If you want to take a trip down to San Diego and stay in either Chula Vista RV Resort or Santee Lakes RV park. Check out Doug's Mobile Awning they are great guys, good prices and service. Have used them to repair both of my RV's awnings.

RE: Overland Expo East - Oct. 3-5, 2014, Asheville, NC

I sure am interested in it and would love to stay on site, but $490 for the two of us is a bit high. Anybody know what the day pass is expected to cost? If you check on-line, I found a 3-day pass for 60 bucks, I think it was an early bird special. That was for the OX in AZ though. It seems the day passes don't start selling until a few weeks before the event, so keep checking the OX site. In AZ there was on-site boondock camping for 10 bucks a night.

RE: jefe4x4 interview

Great interview Mike, having met both of you at the OX, you are both masters of the craft of TC'ing. Jefe takes it just a bit futher out there in extreme off-road TC'ing, not many would do what he does with a hardside TC. My hats off to both of you.

RE: My First Truck Camper...HELP!!!

The owner's manuals aren't very helpful, may give model and specs, tanks sizes and such, but that's about it. You will have more luck with the individual appliance websites, most have manuals on-line you can download. Most all manufactures use the same appliance brands.

RE: Trip Report: Sierra Trout Fishing, Camping and Paddling

Great report Buzzcut, we'll be in that area next week. Gave me some good ideas for camping there.

RE: Fuel Station not pumping

The Graco/PBL pumps use a plastic woodruff key to hold the drive gear, if the gears bind then the woodruff key could break. Pump would run but wouldn't pump. I have seen this happen. I would pull the cover and check to see if the gears and key is OK. While you are under there check all of the hoses for cracks creating a possible air leak.
