RE: Las Cruces, NM to San Diego, CA

If you don't mind going about 20 miles out of your way,overnight for free at the Casino south of Maricopa.Get off on milepost 151 and head north.Theres a lot in Gila Bend at exit 119 you can stay.Used by truckers.

RE: Im finding vague references

We are sayimg the same thing,he should get a F350 When I bought my F250,they had no gas models with camper pack So I looked at a F350 SRW near the price and figured I would get the aux springs It did not have aux springs.That was only standard on F350DRW All the 2015 F350SRW had the aux springs Something has changed since 2013 or 14.

RE: Overnight spot South of Vegas

If you need a campground I have stayed at the one at Cal Nav Ari.If you can Boondock there is lots of desert. you could probably overnight at the casino in Searchlight.Lots of sand,be carefull if you don't have 4wd.

RE: Difference in Gearing

Both trucks are 4X4's. Not sure why you said the 3.55 didn't come with a towing package. The truck I'm looking at clearly has one and the door sticker confirms the gearing. I'll try to negotiate the best I can, but it's been extremely tough finding anything in a crew cab that has 130k or less for miles for around the $10k mark. I may be wrong,however I had a 2006 F150 4x4 Scab It had the 7200gvw Tow package that had 3.73 If it has the receiver hitch,trans cooler,posi and big gas tank and 7 pin hitch it has tow package.

RE: Difference in Gearing

app;es to oranges? I wold go for the lower gear ratio and tell them you will give them $1000 less take it or leave it. He is right,for a 11 year old truck its what the traffic will bear For what its worth the 3.73 has tow package.The 3.55 did not. The old 5.4 isn't real economic,my 6.2 F250 gets 12.9 with camper where the old F150 got 13.2

RE: So what did you do to your Truck Camper today?

Cleaned up the camper after weekend out camping in this horrible 80 degree Ariz weather at Bouse. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/612EBD91-07D2-487E-8826-11DB2DEBE7EB_zpsdlxsldof.jpg height=600 width=480 http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/C57FE66E-E031-4082-8188-1A614FBF037A_zpseglbym9f.jpg height=600 width=480

In the last 15 years or so of Boondocking I have visited all 12 camps One of the guys had this old "Cornbinder" he was restoring, all original with the 4 cyl.Its a 1963 ,52 years old.Made trip no problem, http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/F6DEDDE2-4A31-41DE-911C-C79F8229C544_zps8kigtkp7.jpg height=600 width=480

RE: 15 Palomino SS-550

I am going to upgrade to a SS1200 and use the prices on truck camper website The problem is since they are inexpensive,they load up on extras.

RE: Camp Bouse

The 14 day free camping areas SW of Bouse along Plamosa Rd are very much like Scadden Wash. Large natural gravel areas with trees and bushes in the washes. I'm there now. Thanks,are you going to the ceremony? http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/B0F42401-52AA-46E3-808E-2DB9A40C9073_zps8kxm0b2x.jpg height=600 width=480 If you see this rig stop by and say hi.Am bringing lots of firewood

RE: thrifty meter and cable

I have a couple of these DC VOLTMETER that plugs into a standard Cigarette Socket that comes in handy... Think they cost around $15 from AMAZON. My INFOMATION DISPLAY on my 2010 Ford truck does not list the BATTERY DC VOLTAGE anywhere. I always like to monitor what my Truck Charging system is doing other than seeing a CHECK BATTERY WARNING come on telling me something is wrong... http://imageshack.us/a/img12/5150/0004217303721500x500.jpg height=200 You sure went a long way to tap into 12VDC to measure your battery voltage... What ever works huh.... I guess I'm abit curious why you are using the 7-way connector for a DC Meter you are using inside the Truck Camper. I suspect you are not using your SAFETY LIGHTS and Battery Charge for the Truck Camper coming from the Truck battery system... I would want to know the status of the Truck Camper Batteries more so than the TRUCK Start Battery especially when camping off the power grid around Sedona Red Rock Canyons or up on the Apache trail somewhere.. I'm probably not getting the whole picture here hehe... Roy Ken I wasnt'that clear.The reason I know the voltage at the truck is I recycled my scan guage from the old F150 and have it on the F250 I monitor on the scan guage,actual water temp,trans temp,voltage and actual RPM. the camper batt is 12.6,13.55 at idle,and 13.6 on WFCO covertor. When I dry camp and when the batt is11.9,its time to take a little drive somewhere. http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o655/rwdIII/Mobile%20Uploads/E4FCFABE-7CD4-431D-B90B-D6269FD3B91D_zps57cwatmy.jpg height=600 width=480
