RE: adding a leaf spring

I started with Airbags. While they have their place they can unload the suspension. The majority of the load can ride on the airbags. This can create a squishy ride. Later added Quick Disconnect Torklift Stable loads when they came out. They do not affect empty ride. Not sure if your application is no drill.

RE: Ford vs Ram vs Chevy diesels

How do they perform at braking? Anyone can go. Exhaust brake is very handy.

RE: Got rid of the trailer, went back to tent camping

I like being near tent campers in bear country ;)

RE: CO2 detector

Is this the detector on the floor? My old and nearly deaf dog when lean against it while sleeping. He kept pressing the test button. Of course it didn't wake him.

RE: True weight of Arctic Fox 811

Your weights seem similar to mine. Heavy. Wife had to have a slide.

RE: Adding 12V outlets to an Arctic Fox 1150 truck camper

On my AF811 I installed a 12v next to the rear door by the slide. I wired to a spare spot on the factory fuse block. Also installed one near the steps to the upper bed.

RE: ELectric Fans on a Cummins ?

I've seen the Dodge unit on the bench. It's nice to look at. The Flexilite people were great to talk with. I'm not that happy with the factory 06'+ Dodge electronic fan clutch system. The older non computer controlled factory system was better IMO.

RE: Broken off anode blues!

Yup. Not broken off. Get a flush wand and flush the tank out. X4

RE: Good Cell Phone external Antennas????

Which booster? Model? There are window mount antennas that have metal. Some small antennas require a small amount of metal for the ground reference. There are usually distance requirements between the two antennas. Some internal antennas are good to five ft. Other internal antennas need to touch the cell device. For the external antenna mounting with more height is always good. I've used a small window mount using supplied suction cup. It does work. However, center hood of my tow rig had slightly better signal. 3db difference +/-?

RE: Ford navigation system

Does it come with updates? Smart phones are always up to date.

RE: Led lights

The led light is focused. Light output also varies among manufacturers. We turn on an extra light on led compared to standard lights. However, my led lights draw .13 to .21 amps depending on which light is on. Previous draw was 1 - 2 amps each.

RE: Bugged by little bugs, any helpful hints

If they are attracted to light place a sacrificial light outside slightly away from RV. I prefer to park next to campers that use white outside light. It's probably their mating season right now.

RE: Vehicle taxes where you live... how bad?

Try paying $7,000 in sales tax in WA for a truck purchase. Yeow! After that, yearly tags are only couple hundred. I guess every state has different ways of shaking you down. Hard to escape it. A few years ago Wa. ST had a major tax change by initiative. Used to be really bad. Now it's only the purchase sales tax that get you. With questionable legality I've heard people on the West Coast register RV's in Montana. I say questionable if one actually owns property there. I've heard Pennsylvania is the place to avoid for high taxes. This is what made the 1/2 ton Dodge Megacab enviable. It was 1/2 ton truck with 3/4 frame and running gear.

RE: Internet Access..trouble at stick & brick

Everything appears to be O.K. except I must use an Ethernet cable between router and modem. What were you using before? Was it a wireless connection modem to router? USB? Ethernet is stable.

RE: Transfer photos from your camera via WiFi instead of cable

In the past I've used an OTG (on the go) cord to connect my Android to a USB adapter for my CF card for cloud upload. I do like your NAS solution. I usually have a Seagate 1tb external drive with built in WiFi server.

RE: 2011 Buick Lacrosse tow car battery problems

Are there diodes in the wiring to provide one way power to the tow vehicle?

RE: Rattle in truck

Earlier models had troubles with the driveshaft center bearing that sounded like yours. Good Luck, Mike Sounds like Driveshaft bearing or rear driveline Ujoint. Grab a coffee while the dealer figures it out. The Ujoints are held in with injected plastic. Replacement will use standard clips.
