RE: Running Generator on the road

Yeah but you are now off topic. This thread is not about bashing the loud reliable 279 dollar champion workhorse

RE: Running Generator on the road

yup, worse thing is they damage my champion generator ;) My strong bumper will protect the RV unless major collision then don't matter what we have back there.

RE: Running Generator on the road

This maybe a stupid question but why not. How many out there run a generator while running down the road and if so how do you run the cord if the generator in the truck bed and the plug is at the back of the FW or did you have another plug put in up front? Yes - (run the gen in the pickup bed) if desired. Yes - another "plug" up front. Serves several purposes, besides the gen. See the (my) - *connection options* from discussion about the 50amp cord. It's a variation of a schematic posted many years ago by Ken Lenger for his on-board gen & manual transfer switch. BTW - The rack in back. Unless it's for a slide in camper (no bed space available), IMO - the gen on the "rack in back" is your *substitute bumper*...:( But - whatever rings *your* chimes!..;) ~ and mine is stronger than the stock make believe bumper :B

RE: Running Generator on the road

Another option is to add a cargo rack on the back end of your FW and mount a gen-box back there. Usually a much shorter run for the cord and not (usually) necessary for another plug. Lyle This is what I did and works great. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/62nCoDeZCcs/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kpn6HOU7Tzg/Tg9HtFHCToI/AAAAAAAADk4/q45yYmv5sc8/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack.jpg width=450

RE: rear hitch for 5th wheel

I took off the cheap make believe bumper and made this with 3 hitch receiver's https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-FJCPBcedHLw/TLROuHgODsI/AAAAAAAAD6w/pJgjQMUHE9Q/s640-Ic42/DSC01245.JPG width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mQ-1ws-WGvw/ThGUwDjzkrI/AAAAAAAAD54/YIb-o1Aqo_M/s640-Ic42/DSC01670.JPG width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/62nCoDeZCcs/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=500

Nice Barney, how well does it do in wind?

RE: door keeper

Neat idea...but I gotta ask. Why don't you just replace it? Ron I have replaced twice but they don't hold the shape from the sun and stretch. I can replace the zip tie much faster ;)

door keeper

I keep having problems with my door keeper that holds walkin door open. They get stretched and don/t work. I know they don't cost much but today I did a ZIP TIE MOD to mine and works great. It keeps just enough tension for door to stay open :B https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-UG7CxBnlQCU/Vb4s5XxR7WI/AAAAAAAAFis/PCDczCl3yvI/s512-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-KmJ8ug1cCpo/Vb4s4hL9EqI/AAAAAAAAFik/0p8dfd6UNY0/s512-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg width=450

RE: Attention 7.3l owners!

I have 3 Ford 7.3 Powerstrokes, 2 for business and I just picked up a 99 Superduty DRW with 150000 miles with a bad converter that had the marble sounds. The 99 is stock except for Hydra chip with set of gauges and I installed a muti disk converter plus 6.0 cooler. I paid four thousand for the 99 because every one was afraid of the noise converter made. I new the seller well and the truck was well taken care of but the noise was the kicker. I also installed the 05 superduty headlights after cutting out the header with a template to follow. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-6JpAPD0-Emw/VSBIboDmRmI/AAAAAAAAExM/kg5z1wtURnA/s512-Ic42/upload_-1.jpg width=500

RE: 3500/4000 Generator an AC

that champion will do just fine with your ac. Here is a pic of mine that follows me everywhere. I only use when no power available. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/62nCoDeZCcs/s640-Ic42/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=500 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mQ-1ws-WGvw/ThGUwDjzkrI/AAAAAAAAD54/YIb-o1Aqo_M/s640-Ic42/DSC01670.JPG width=500

RE: How old is your fifth-wheel?

I bought my first rv used. It is my current 1995 fifth wheel and we did have to remove the 14 foot slide out to replace the wood beam above but the trailer is now in great condition. I don't use the rv more than 10 days a year so it is as much fun tinkering with it at my house as taking too the road. I love working on cars and trucks and the rv adds to that list but wife and I plus dogs love the days we go camping.

RE: Mounting Generator

I made a heavy bumper and mounted 3 receivers plus a basket to carry generator and full ice cooler. I did not have any problems what so ever. Been on there last 5 years. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-FJCPBcedHLw/TLROuHgODsI/AAAAAAAAD6w/gPyI695QhIY/s640/DSC01245.JPG width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-kpn6HOU7Tzg/Tg9HtFHCToI/AAAAAAAADk4/gAFU6TtyyFM/s640/genny%252520rack.jpg width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/89828QQy1Pc/s640/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=450 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mQ-1ws-WGvw/ThGUwDjzkrI/AAAAAAAAD54/QBqgnYmgJ3E/s640/DSC01670.JPG width=450

RE: CW generator - Champion 4000

I never leave home with out my trusty Champion. I only use it when no electric is on site and never had a problem with noise. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-y0HFQwcO0ew/Tg9HtAbYdeI/AAAAAAAADlI/89828QQy1Pc/s640/genny%252520rack2.jpg width=400 https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/-mQ-1ws-WGvw/ThGUwDjzkrI/AAAAAAAAD54/QBqgnYmgJ3E/s640/DSC01670.JPG width=400 Jasult, Have you ever use the generator on the cargo carrier? How much vibration and noise do you have inside the TT? thx Yes I do and the AC is loud enough that we don't have a problem with noise. Vibrations are not enough to be concerned

RE: Waze app for navigation?

Co-Pilot works well also. I use it on my IPhone I use waze sometimes but Co pilot is my app of choice over all the rest. You don't need internet for it to work. Co pilot navigation app
