RE: Should we ban DHMO?

I've almost been killed by it a number of times. It's even more dangerous when it gets below a certain temperature. There have been documented events of it causing explosions when it exceeds a certain temperature

RE: So Long

In honor of this auspicious occasion I humbly submit this catchy tune. I think this is more fitting.

RE: Don't drink...coffee and drive

The only time I had to stand in front of the man was when I was stopped for doing 60 in a 55. Forgot how much it cost me (I think it was < $100 - yes it was some time ago) but had the speedometer certified as being wrong (it was - I had aftermarket oversize wheels and tires) Went to court had watched about 20 other people in front of me plead their case. In each case 2 things happened - one - it was obvious that they had argued with the Florida Highway Patrol and second - guilty and here is your fine. They called me up. My case took less than 5 seconds. The FHP looked at his notes and said, "I dont remember this." Judge "Dismissed." The day I got the ticket I said a total of four words to the FHP. "Have a nice day." Nothing else. I gave the FHP nothing to remember our exchange. You have the right to remain silent. Take advantage of it. Any LEO have any comments on my exchange? (and no - I did not even have to show my speedometer was incorrect)

RE: So Long

For sure. On every forum there are always a few people that I always pay attention to because they know what they're talking about. And he's one of them on this forum. I usually read his posts because I know I can learn something. Sometimes a little cryptic but nothing more. If he doesn't come back I hope someone posts the forum he's frequenting now. I found him here.

RE: Best roof protection,coating?

Another vote for the liquid epdm. I did mine almost 5 years ago and it is starting to get a little rough. Going to re-do it as soon as I get a week without rain. I painted it up and over every seam and seal on the roof and have not needed to caulk anything up top for 5 years. Well worth it in my opinion. For best results, make sure you RTFM before you start applying.

RE: Riddle

in case a tire on your truck goes flat, lower the jack from the camper into that then you can keep driving without changing the tire.

RE: So would you go with a built in propane generator today?

Would you share which Honda you got and where you got it. Here's the original thread about my genny swap. The tri-fuel kit is from Central Maine Diesel. Cheers, Mark I now have my new project!

RE: So would you go with a built in propane generator today?

My TC came with an Onan 2500, but I immediately removed it and installed a Honda (with tri-fuel kit) n the same compartment... Would you share which Honda you got and where you got it? My genny took a dump and due to business reasons, I need 110V. I figure my genny bay is about the same size as yours as we both have Alpenlight's. Thx!

RE: Is this true?

Keep in mind - if you have power at the 7 pin plug when your truck engine is turned off - if/when you kill the battery in the camper (by leaving things on too long in the camper) - YOU WILL KILL THE BATTERY IN YOUR TRUCK!!!! Install an automatic disconnect or unplug the 7 pin if you think you might run the battery down. You dont want to be out in the middle of nowhere and find you killed the starter battery in your truck.

RE: Slide out a little or all the way AF990 EC960 Lance 995?

Keep in mind, if you dont fully slide it out, your seals are not in use and you will have air leaking in when it is cold and water leaking in when it is raining.

RE: The ultimate truck camper "sighting"

I've said that TCs are popular where there's "wilderness"? They're a dime-a-dozen here in Michigan - but I remember noticing one in Florida at a campground and being surprised to see it...LOL! I have only seen one in Florida - and it was parked next to mine - in a campground in Palm Beach. Was that you?

RE: DC Compressor Refrigerator - UPDATE: Fridge Installed

Cool! (no pun intended) Would/could you test and post the power draw on 12 volts (either in watt hours or amp hours) over a 24 hour period after it has cooled off? I think that a lot of people would like to see that. Also, please note the ambient temperature in the TC when you run that test? Thanks!!!

RE: Wild Chicken hunt

Anyone else into hunting some wild chicken? Heading out this weekend to piss off some deer hunters and blast some grouse for the fryer. I'm jealous! We dont have any good places around here to hunt wild birds. Fortunately, I know a gentleman that cuts me some slack on the price to hunt birds he releases - and he lets me camp in the fields. I never used my TC for hunting. Fact is, I used to hunt Turkeys, but had to give it up. They threatened to call the cops the next time I fired my shotgun in the meat department of Safeway. Maybe I should have had a DRW? Wayne That is just fowl!

RE: A/C issue

Check with someone who knows to see if maybe upgrading/replacing your starter cap will help reduce the load on the generator.
