RE: 2010 Arctic Fox truck camper available

What makes this one so special that you have to "advertise" it? It's in Statesville, NC. That's why it's special There may not be many other Arctic Fox campers for sale in that general area, so this particular member is possibly doing someone a favor by posting it here.... someone here might be looking for a late model AF Correct, a couple I know in Texas drove to Florida to buy their (used) Fox

RE: Ford Super Duty slated to get aluminum body

Corrosion is a known, controllable effect. Well, except for morons that add their own accessories and don't think about it. Saw a news piece today that the new F-150 has "best in class" cargo and tow ratings, largely due to the lighter body.

RE: Inverter wire into RV 'house' circuit question

This is the one I used. It switches as soon as the Inverter is powered up. This can be important as you should NOT bond the Ground and Neutral together. That is never done at sub-panels or connections below the main panel (ie the first panel after the power arrives from the transformer) I lead the power from the trailer breaker panel to the transfer switch, then back to the panel to connect to the load.

RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

The article is on page 5 A Local/State Kitsap Sun 9-30-14. Inslee said this tax proposal could become part of HIS (for you that say the Gov. has nothing to do with this!) budget (that HE sends to the Legisature). And he does have a veto vote! It was published on-line Monday at 8:55AM

RE: Hail! Trailer is a write off

If the damage is as described I'd certainly keep the trailer. The insurance company looks at cost to repair vrs scraping, and takes which ever is the cheapest route. They look at expenses only, not utility or future value. The reality is, costs to repair a trailer, as a function of value, is much higher then a car.

RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

I read the Kitsap Sun article days ago to say J-Rooster mis-quoted it is an understatement. It was exactly along the lines of the KOMO report. It's a recommendation from a study on how to fund the State Parks Even if the Gov endorses the plan, it would have to pass in the next session of the Legislature. While I agree the State Parks have been underfunded for years, targeting a single category of users (RVs) to provide that funding sounds like a non-starter to me. Like the "plan" a few years ago to close a bunch of Parks. Until a careful reading of the leases revealed that many on the list would have reverted to the owners. The leases state that the State must keep those parks open, and accessible to the public, or they revert to the property owner, with all improvements.

RE: Repair a Camper with a bulging side ?

I've done this type of repair, twice. Time consuming but not tough if you are handy and know basic (and some advanced) repair stuff. I would never pay that kind of money for a rig I knew needed structural repairs. First you park it out the the weather, then you start tearing it down to get all the rot, etc out. Then you put it back together, with clean, new materials.

RE: Pullrite super glide hitch, looking for bed pins

I expect the pins in question are NOT conventional hitch pins; ie the ones that connect the bed-pins to the hitch. The bed pins are probably only available from PullRite

RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

It depends... Arctic Fox has a photo of one of their units with 32 people on it. Others, well, a friends 150 lb grandson broke through the roof of his older Fleetwood. As noted, you are at, or past, the weight limit for ladders also.

RE: Looking for camping suggestions US 2 ND, MN, WI

Snork, Forests in North Dakota? The NF Service does run some "National Prairie" land there though. There are a couple State Parks in eastern ND on US2 BTW, do NOT plan to spend the night anywhere near (100 miles plus) Williston, there aren't any available.

RE: RV park near Mt Ranier NP

Full hook-ups means you need to use one of the commercial campgrounds at Ashford or Mineral.

RE: Ham Radio

I've been licensed since 1970 I've been camping even longer. We've have an RV since 1990. She has been licensed since about 1990. In the pre-cellphone days, We always hauled a 2M along, even had a strap-on antenna for tent. We had 2M in all the vehicles, and in the RV. Hauled 2M talkie's along to keep in touch. Since cell-phones and wifi really took off, we haven't had either a 2M in any vehicle.

RE: Converting Single windows to Double Pane?

It's probably either remove and replace with dual-pane, or a DIY project as described

RE: Thoughts on a used Ford tow vehicle...??

All three of those have the improved crank, 2-valve V10. Which makes 305 HP You would have to get a 2005 or newer to get the 3-valve V10, at 362 HP I believe the 2001 has the head issues (not enough threads for the spark-plugs). While spark-plug failure was not common, you should be aware of it.

RE: NPS Drone Ban

But we're talking about a park system wide ban. You're saying that there's no safe area to fly rc aircraft in the entire park? Hunting is allowed in NPS parks, but like you said there are regulations dictating distance from structures, etc. Why wouldn't they use the same logic to regulate a far less risky activity? Is the NPS sued when there's a hunting accident? As for liability insurance, that's a requirement ar a private club/field. The NPS parks a public areas. Ah, no hunting is NOT allowed in any National Park I am aware of, in fact 36 CFR 2.2(a)(1) appears to ban hunting in all National Parks There are some lands, that border on NP's that are jointly administered by the Park Service and another agency that do allow hunting. But those are NOT National Parks. Denali National Preserve is an example of this.

RE: V-10 & high mileage, need advice

The improved HP was due to a change in the crank design also. There have been several versions of the Ford V10 Original version years through 99 Improved head & crank (increased HP), put in the F series until the three-valve was introduced (2005) and in the E series through the end of the E series chassis production (2014, 2015, I forget now) Then the 3 valve design, which has only been put in the F series chassis, they produce 365 HP I and many MANY people owned (own) early production V10s with absolutely no issues. The reality is the plug problem was certain not common.

RE: Best gas engine, is V10 good

The V10 has been the standard Ford fleet engine in, well, just about every truck/van chassis they ship since 1997 (Fleet sales started before private sales) As a result the engine has seen, lots and lots of miles. Ford is still shipping the engine in lots of the fleet sales (F650) It has been one of the best engines Ford has ever produced. I've owned two, with minimal issues.
