RE: Tv operation on battery power?

Initially installed a 12V powered Television. Computer tablets became so good I took the television out. Plug the tablets into power while driving down the road. No drain on the camper batteries.

RE: What Truck to buy?

2500 from any manufacturer will have better brakes, suspension and frame than their 1500 version.

RE: How to: AF Camper Skylight Replacement (w/pics)

Great write up. During disassembly were you able to find the cause of the leak?

RE: Gas alarm going off

Being as it is new, bring it back to the dealer...period. This isn't something you should try to figure out, they should. Strongly agree with letting the dealer figure it out.

RE: Cell Phone Guru's? question

Wife and I upgraded to Nougat with great results. The app icons do look a little different. Your phone may have downloaded old apps from a previous phone? The cloud may have thought they were still current.

RE: Travel WIFI to WIFI extender/booster

More secure might mean using a VPN. Hotel or campground wifi is just that. I have a Hootoo I normally use in the towrig as a media server. It can also be used as a wifi to wifi repeater. I can also plug into a hard line a transmit/split to wifi. It's a nice universal gadget. The Hootoo range is great for a hotel room. Not so great for a residential house. Our home router died once. Used the Hootoo as backup until the new home router arrived. $30 on Amazon https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/31x3KPOu-cL._SX425_.jpg

RE: 2004 V8 4runner with 7K frame mounted hitch

What about renting a large uhaul and towing the 4runner. Let uhaul equipment take the stress.

RE: Looking at a Arctic Fox 811, anyone weigh theirs?

I purchased 19.5" commercial tire/rims to compensate for the AF 811.

RE: Web Cam - is this possible

I should clarify, no cloud based storage. That increases the cost and data.

RE: Web Cam - is this possible

I use Alfred to check on the dog at home using spare devices. I have also used it while at dinner with the dog in the camper. I turn one of our active phones into a monitor. Use the wife's phone to remote view. I do not use a cloud based solution. Actual data usage is very low. You could use a pay as you go phone in the camper. Then remote view from your phone. Be sure to connect to external battery source. I would use a cell battery pack to power the phone while away. Save the RV battery. Alfred does allow the user to talk through the phone. I do not talk thru the phone. I don't want to induce anxiety.

RE: Bilsteins on a Ram 3/4 ton?????????

If you have a diesel, consider no lower than 60psi front, 50psi rear when empty. Have not tried Bilstein. Rancho adjustable shocks did help the ride.

RE: dingy towing 2017 Jeep Cherokee Latitude

It's not difficult to trailer a vehicle. Probably need specific straps for your Trailhawk. I did trailer my Cherokee Trailhawk once. This saves on vehicle service brakes. Makes trailer brakes easy too.

RE: 2016 CTD, cant' get oil filter out!

For the first oil change have the dealer do it. Oil filter can be really tight for first change. What is to prevent the shop tech from putting it back on real tight??? Once I do an oil change on a vehicle I don't need a filter wrench as I can remove by hand, as I only turn 3/4 turn after the filter contacts the sealing surface. I have never had a leak. Its my understanding the robot at cummins installed the filter really tight. I read about all the problems before attempting mine. I let the dealer wrestle with it. Back then (late 2005) Dodge wanted $110 to change my oil. Last year the dealer oil change was $59. Thats officially not worth my time to mess with it. At $59 I'm watching YouTube while the dealer gets dirty.

RE: What a mess, I broke my truck...

Op mentioned 2012 truck. Dual mass flywheel? You went 200k with a DMF? Buy a lottery ticket.

RE: Newbie w/ tow vehicle question...

Does something that old have trailer brakes? I think brakes and suspension are more important than power. Ford Explorer is cheaper to purchase. Toyota 4runner has a better transmission. 4runner is more difficult to find at low mileage and low price. It's difficult, not impossible. Recommend a transmission cooler for the tow vehicle. Car Complaints is easy to scan for vehicle probability. Nhtsa is more difficult to read. For your trailer, an American 1/2ton truck would be my first choice. Mid size SUV with 5k tow rating would be my second choice. This allows extra capacity for braking. Nothing you buy will get the fuel mileage of your Honda Civic. http://www.carcomplaints.com https://www-odi.nhtsa.dot.gov/owners/SearchSafetyIssues?prodType=E http://www.toyota-4runner.org

RE: 5.5 Foot Bed Options/Who's running one?

Is there a reason a 3/4 is not preferred for Offroad use? Better frame, suspension, axles and brakes. Have you checked Alaskan campers? Would work great on a 3/4 ton truck.

RE: Going without air bags

Have you considered Torklift Stableloads? Depending on configuration you may find airbags are no longer necessary.
