RE: What Is On The Bottom of Your Truck Camper?

I bought an older Hallmark truck camper that I rebuilt. The plywood on the bottom was totally rotted out along with some of the super structure. I used 3/4" plywood to replace the bottom. I rolled 3 coats of Flexseal on prior to attaching the plywood to the camper. Flexseal is not cheap but it is a great product. I got mine at Lowes about $75.00 per gallon but have 1/2 can left.

RE: Wolf Creek 850 front box issues

I recently repaired a Hallmark that had a very thin sheet of plywood as that of your Wolf Creek. It had rotted over the years and was a poor design coming from the factory. I use 1/2 marine ply and 3 coats of Flex Seal. I applied the Flex Seal prior to installing the plywood and then just had to touch up where the screws into the frame were installed. If you haven't use Flex Seal it is a outstanding product. I then use aluminum angle to cover the outside edges.

RE: Duo Therm forced air furnace wont ignite

Google your type of furnace for a youtube demonstration. I'm sure you will find a video describing your problem. If you have to replace the sail fan go to Amazon and they are less than $20.00 and very easy to install. I would say if the fan is not running at all it is probably something other than the sail fan.

RE: Truck

The answer to your question "can I haul it" is no way. I have basically the same truck with the 6.0 engine which is 800lb lighter than yours. In order to haul a Wolf Creek 816 which weighted 3000 lb loaded I upgraded the shock to heavy duty camper shocks, installed Stableloads, installed Timbrems, and changed to a heavier tire. You could haul something like a 1500 lb camper maybe!

RE: carbon monoxide detector

Thanks to all. I have disconnected the detector in question, reconnected and allowed it to cycle back on. It has not alarmed since that action. My grand children and especially my great grand children will be using it and I don't feel I can be too safe in their behalf.

carbon monoxide detector

I have a 2014 Northstar truck camper and have been getting alarms of a steady beep now and then. The red warning light come and remains on until I depress the test button. I have checked each propane connection with soap and water and no sign of any leaks. I have also checked the tank and the alarm occasionally goes off even when the tank is turned off. The detector is hard wired into the batteries and the batteries are above 13 amps at all times as they are solar powered. I have purchased a First Alert 10year detector and placed it very near the hardwired one and it does not alarm at all. I'm thinking the that even though the hardwired detector that is OEM is only 2 years old it may be bad. I have purchased a OEM and hopefully that will correct the problem. What say you?

Northstaar 850SC

This is number 12 of the many different rigs I have had. It is a little short on inside storage but I don't need as much anymore for my travels. http://i.imgur.com/jiIcS8fl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1jtQSidClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Storage

I have use several cargo carriers for my truck campers in the past. I find that Curt makes great cargo carriers. I have used the folding type and the stationary ones. They are very sturdy and will accept cargo up to 500 lbs. I just ordered a 24"X60" Curt for $111.00 and plan to use it on my recently purchased Northstar. Etrailer

RE: Does silicone have any place on a travel trailer?

Silicone is the worst product you could possible use to seal the exterior of any RV. Use Dicor or Eternabond tape and you won't have to worry about taking failed Silicone off your RV.

RE: Used Truck Advice: 06 GMC 2500 Sierra 4x4 gaser

They will need Torklift stable loads, Trimbens, and heavy duty shocks at least. At least a load E tires. I have the same truck and have gone to 1 size larger tire than OEM. My camper loaded weight is 3000lbs.
