RE: Tool Storage/Carrier repair

I use two pieces of nylon webbing about 3/4" wide and sewed velcro on it. I then got a couple of button snaps and screwed them to the case. Used the snap tool to fasten the female side to the ends of the straps. Fasten them together and then use the webbing with velcro to tighten the case together. I have 3 cases done this way.

RE: 6 Point Leveling

Well, after the OP got on the phone with Lippert, the part was overnighted and installed. The system was calibrated and was ready for pickup, however, a tractor trailer delivering to the dealer hit the nose cap of the trailer.:M Camper was sent to body shop and was supposed to be returned today. This weekend may be a possibility yet!!

RE: 6 Point Leveling

According to the OP, I talked to him again today, the system has a bad motherboard. The control head and the other board is fine, but it is going to take over 3 weeks to get the part according to Lippert! Completely floors me that a part will take that long from them. They will not be making our next trip with us which is 10 days away now.:M

RE: fence post sewer hose holder

I used 1" aluminum tubing to drop my posts below the propane line. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130407_153036_zps965f0dba.jpg I also have these to store my awning poles in. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130621_115148_zps539b6c2f.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20130621_180519_zpsfb2933fb.jpg

RE: 6 Point Leveling

Hey guys I have a Durango Gold 380FL that I've been camping in for about 6 months now. My last camping trip was about one month ago. This week I attempted to hook the camper up to the truck to move it. Upon doing so, I ran into a problem with the hydraulic jacks. This camper has a 6 point leveling system on it. When attempting to raise or lower the jacks, they won't move an inch. The control panel is on and working, but the jacks do not respond. I have checked all fuses and all seem to be intact. Any troubleshooting ideas from people who have similar setups? Well, let's see Dillon. I think we figured it out for the weekend, but glad now it's at the dealer. I still do not understand why KZ sends you a packet full of 10amp fuses because they keep blowing. Monty

RE: Another septic hose support system

At campgrounds like Myrtle Beach, the sewer drains stick out of the ground about 8" as well as usually being at the rear of the camper. The PVC stands would work great. However, I made this up a few years ago and it takes about 15 minutes to set up using the levelers I usually carry, plus a sections of symmetrical gutters and a Sidewinder. Using this you don't have to walk the junk out of the lines every time. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_174020.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120720_063942.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120720_063951.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_180013.jpg http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120717_174032.jpg

RE: Going Through Atlanta

Thanks for the replies. It's good to get input from those familiar with the area. One more question for those from Atlanta. How late on. January Monday does rush hour go on? I had guessed we would be going through around 8:00, but if we got there earlier, I wouldn't want to get stuck in rush hour. What would be the earliest I should try to go through? Thanks again. Mark I live in the Atlanta area as well. Like others have said, stay off of 285. It is ranked in the nation's deadliest interstates. The rush hours in the ATL last until around 9 in all directions. A few years ago, many businesses started staggering their start times to offset the trouble their employees had getting to work on time.

RE: Sandpiper thoughts/opinions/rants?

I have the '12 365SAQ in my Sig. We've loves every minute of owning it except for the debate over the 7k axles that FR resolved. If anything happened to this camper and our son is still with us, I would buy another in a heartbeat! The new ones have 7k axles and a redesigned master bath. This unit has the best floorplan on the market for those of us with kids in my opinion. One thing I would suggest is to change the tires out to either Goodyear G615s or the Sailun S637s and enjoy!

RE: 6.7 Fuel Mileage

I have the '13 6.7 DRW 4x4 in my sig. Two weeks ago I returned from a 900 mile round trip to Myrtle Beach towing my 15,500 pound 5er and averaged 9.85 mpg with the 3.73 rear gears. Most in my group say that the '15 and '16s are getting a about 1.5 mpg worse than the '11-'14s did, but love the exhaust brake so much that they don't care. Of course, most of them do not have enough miles on them to have really broken the engine in yet. I am TOTALLY happy with my 6.7. I would only like the better exhaust brake, but I don't travel in the mountains around here that much.

RE: Has anyone attached kayaks to the rear ladder?

I put on a front hitch, Thule cross bars on truck and a Rhino-Rack T-Loader front carrier and carry mine like this. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/2013%20Dually/20150412_092719_zpsowqpl2f5.jpg width=640 Moderator edit to re-size picture to forum recommended limit of 640px maximum width.

RE: Looking at Excursions...

I've owned an '01 7.3L Excursion since I ordered it in "01. Now with 218k miles on her, she is as strong as ever. As has been mentioned, the tranny is the weak link, but they can be built with multi-disc converters and improved valve bodies along with a larger cooler and you are good to go. One other of the most popular mods is to change the springs out to an F25- set of springs. NO, they don't have the same springs originally as the truck. For around $800 you can have all new springs and u-bolts thaat you can put in yourself in the driveway provided a good jack and a good set of jack stands. If these trucks had come this way from the factory, they would have sold millions more as they make a HUGE difference in the truck. All '01 Xs need a Hellwig rear swaybar. About $175 and a coupkle of hours of your time and standard hand tools. These mods make this truck a true pleasure to own and drive. A very reliable truck. As I call it, the most capable SUV on the planet.

RE: Pin box bike rack, how many bikes can you fit

I made my own mount and did a write up on here. I believe it may be in the mod section, but bought a 3 bike, fold down rack from discountramps.com like this my 3 bike rack I probably could get 4, but I enjoy the fact that I've never even came close to the cab of the truck.

RE: Alanta, Ga

As a life long resident of GA, the above posts are correct. Go straight through. Don't even think about 285 as it is nothing but a racetrack and death trap. I would only use it during rush hours as the downtown gets bogged badly. Have a safe trip!

RE: Bunkhouse model 5th Wheels

The Sandpiper or Sierra 365SAQB has what you are looking for as well. The largest open floor in the bunkroom around.

RE: Attention 7.3l owners!

As far as the tranny is concerned, you've already put on the 6.0 cooler, now you need a multi-disc converter, Sonnax valve body and a deeper pan to help on those really long uphill pulls. These 4R100 trannies can be built to haul some serious weight nowadays and stay cool doing it. Around here a complete rebuild to tow runs between $2202 and $3400 depending on what all you want done. A friend of mine spent 19 years building and re-building them at Ford dealers all around here and now has his own shop and in covered up with people wanting the 4R100s built to pull.

RE: 2013+ f350 drw vs f450 for 18k towing

If it's only about weight for you, go with the F-350. I'm curious as to why turning radius of the F-450 is SIGNIFICANTLY smaller than that of an F350 dually. Just curious...I wouldn't have thought that. ON EDIT: just read above post, which wasn't being posted while I was posing the question..so, guess I got my answer:) To answer your question, the F350 4x4s front wheels turn out to a 38* angle. The F450s front wheels(and the WIDE TRACK F350s) turn out to a full 45*. That is why the F450s are easier to turn, back, jack and chase campers. The only word of caution with an F450 4x4, if you ever turn the steering wheel to the locked, or almost locked position in 4WD, the front knuckles will bind and break. And that gets expensive quickly. The F350s will buck and lunge, but the F450s can actually break front end components. I've seen it done twice, while jacking 5ers in the mud, by the same idiot.

RE: 5th Wheel Flag Pole Mount

Since I already have a pin box mount I made for my bike rack, which is a 2" receiver, You've just given me a great idea to copy. Grat way to show our colors! Thank you!

RE: Got my Sailuns installed (Great Price)

My partner at work had been looking for a set for her Montana and I recommended and found the Sailuns through NTB about 2 months ago. I have G14s on mine, but carry two Sailuns as spares. We just got back from an 850 mile round trip excursion to Myrtle Beach. She said she was very happy with the tires and how much difference the tires like that make on the interstates. When my date code is out on my 614s, Sailuns will take their place.

RE: Bike rack on front of truck

http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/20140719_142654_zpsglztpqna.jpg I too carry mine on the pin box. Up and out of the way and can be watched while driving. http://i1209.photobucket.com/albums/cc390/golfmedik/Camper/IMG_20120603_113235_zpsl2tjeidn.jpg
