Hot refridge

Went camping with some friends near Palo Verde for three days of dry camping Before I left I plugged in the camper to cool down the fridge and charge up the batt. fridge was nice and cold when I left.It was warm and on the second day I noticed the beer was cool,not cold and the fan on the back of fridge never turned off. the back of the fridge was really hot. I turned it off. a friend looked at it and said it was missing some insulation and and said the top shelf was way to hot. This is in a Palomino 800 that's only 2 years old.The warranty is up. I have to pull the fridge to put in the insulation .Any help is appreciated.

RE: Palomino question

Please post a pic of the truck and camper if he gets one. It seems I am the only one on the forum that likes them. His cost should be about $12000. people love to compare them to $26000 campers and then say how bad they are.

RE: Someone please explain

Don't listen to the experienced RVers on this forum. Go with what the salesman tells you. They're honest, highly trained professionals who know what they're talking about. Their only concern is your safety. :B :B :B And, I have a bridge for sale in San Francisco. Best post in a long time

RE: Removing Firestone Work rites and installing air bags..

I have had good luck with the work rites,but I have a lot less weight and on the F150 they replace the bumpstops. when I store the camper the work rites are 1.5 inches above the axles,but it still rides like a truck because of the Monroe coil over shocks and my home made half stable loads.I didn't use any spacers with them http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/64B26241-4D2B-43ED-AC53-A6114DEE6F59-513-000001B2072645F0_zps7e541bcc.jpg height=600 width=480

RE: Camper and truck.

If you have the 7200gvw package with the 9.75 rear axle,I would go for it. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/64B26241-4D2B-43ED-AC53-A6114DEE6F59-513-000001B2072645F0_zps7e541bcc.jpg height=600 width=480 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/0836B6B5-1B7A-4F13-A9B2-46379A4D0159-1563-00000696B0D3CB79.jpg height=600 width=480 Keep in mind with you,water and stuff your going to have 1750 lb load on a 14 year old truck

RE: Pop-Up Truck Camper

If you like to camp,a pop up is a step up from a tent or in my case a pop up trailer.I have a Palomino 800 on a half ton F150 and it suits me fine. the reasons I have it are 1 my wife no longer camps 2 I wanted something that would fit on a F150 3. I wanted something that I could store in my garage 4 I still wanted to be able to do lite 4 wheeling, I have been all over Death Valley,the mojove road,the Bradshaw trail and the Anza Borrego area. 5 the stove,heater and refridge are as good as the larger trailers I have a porto potty The down side is you have to like primitive type camping,to keep the weight down http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/camping/86E15424-3D21-4EE3-87AB-B3FAFAB4793D-1563-00000696AC7BC9D0.jpg height=600 width=480 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/2014-05/DE890F4C-6742-4905-94E7-1C79EE95D207_zpskw49elmb.jpg height=600 width=480

RE: Camper package

I have also looked for the camper package Finding a LX or LXT camper package with gas is like trying to find a F150 HD I would buy the F150 if it came in the scab shortbed The F250 camper pac includes heavier springs,overload spring,worlds whimpiest sway bar and a certificate. does not include HD alt and has the same GVW as stock plain GVW For the first time in 15 years actually looked at a Ram Couldn't find one that had 6.4 or air suspension or one that wasn't made in Mexico

RE: Bent's Fort and Royal Gorge RR

I was hopeing you would respond We return to Ariz via I25 and I have never seen anything near the Glorieta pass that talks about the Battle. I am a history buff and have been to the Picacho site in Ariz.Do you have any idea where the site is? RW, I've not been to it. But here's what I found: http://www.civilwar.org/battlefields/glorieta-pass.html?tab=visit http://www.nps.gov/peco/historyculture/copy-of-battleofglorietta.htm http://www.civilwaralbum.com/misc/glorieta1.htm Summer ScheduleMemorial Day to Labor Day: Saturdays and Mondays-1:30 p.m. Civil War in the West-Join a ranger or volunteer for a two-hour van tour of Battle of Glorieta Pass sites, including Camp Lewis, Apache Canyon, Canoncito, and Pigeon's Ranch; hear about the characters and events that defined this often overlooked battle.

RE: Bent's Fort and Royal Gorge RR

We went to Bent's Fort many years ago, when our grow kids who now have kids were kids. We were staying around Raton at Sugarite State Park & woke up to snow on the ground (yep, it was in June, I believe). We decided to drive down in elevation to warm up. We all enjoyed it. A neat place. Lot of history & I learned things I'd not known. Very rewarding. We did the Royal Gorge RR train trip with our daughter, her hubby & their 3 yr old son in 2012. We really enjoyed it, more than I thought I would. Earlier, We'd ridden one of the Cumbres & Toltec Scenic Railroad, coal fired, narrow gaged Steam Trains from the 1880s or so. The Royal Gorge RR train (I believe it's a 1950s diesel) was such an easy riding & comfortable trip. A world of difference than the Cumbres & Toltec RR. Enjoyed them both! I was hopeing you would respond We return to Ariz via I25 and I have never seen anything near the Glorieta pass that talks about the Battle. I am a history buff and have been to the Picacho site in Ariz.Do you have any idea where the site is?

RE: My 1st truck camper, well my 1st camper to be honest

Welcome to the forum If you could,would you post a pic of the door sticker in your F250 that gives the payload and front and rear axle ratings with the snowplow package, and what your honest mpg ratings at 65.Thanks. I am looking for a gas 2014 with camper pac. they seem to be rare in LX or LXT. I can get a smoking deal on a work truck that has the snow plow pac Not sure the MPG, the truck varies greatly depending on what brand fuel I buy. I don't drive 65, it's either in town driving or 80 on the interstate. The lie-o-meter says 12.5-13 empty, I hand calculated 15 before truck had 5k on it, it just now has 10k. I know that with the tail gate off it gets much better fuel footage. I have no driven it far with the camper on so I can not tell you the fuel drinking it does loaded, I do know that pulling a trailer with a car on it, it gets the same as empty. http://i1368.photobucket.com/albums/ag194/Scott_Ford/DSCF99601_zpsb789c13d.jpg Thanx I can live with the ratings
