RE: Looking for idea on how to support my camper of truck?

All the interesting campers on Craigslist use cinder blocks. :) (I have a dolly I can drop it on, mainly because I need a dolly. Otherwise my camper is fine on the jacks.) I used cinder blocks before & wood, yet they are heavy & hard on the back & then when not under the camper take up too much space & once again as I said they are heavy to move around for storing. I like the route I took & its just as a back up in case the jacks leak.

RE: Looking for idea on how to support my camper of truck?

^^^ Those Saw horses look great! ^^^ Well, for now I'm gonna go with the Wood X's & now that I got the wood home I've been thinking I should probably get an additional sheet of ply-wood to lay on top of the X to displace the surface more evenly? & Yes for those not sure, My plan is also to keep the legs holding the weight as well, I'm only setting the bed of the camper gentle on the supports in case the jacks leak. I would hate to come out one day & see the jacks have leaked & now I have damage. http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1047136/fullsize/img_9238.jpg http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1047137/fullsize/img_9241.jpg

RE: Looking for idea on how to support my camper of truck?

If I'm just storing the camper I don't support it with anything else, there's no need. However, we end up "using" our camper a lot when it's stored. It's a guest room, an extra refrigerator, a place to escape the kids, etc. So, in order to make it a bit more stable I built a support for the front out of 4x4 post and 2x6 cross pieces. Yes I would as well still be going in & out of it regularly while stored . Guest room & etc. & why I want more support under it.. Oh & I do like those spools & wonder how cheap I could get some for?

RE: Looking for idea on how to support my camper of truck?

I'm leaning towards this yet wonder what thickness would be right for the weight? Of Course I would also still use the camper legs. http://www.supermotors.net/getfile/1046943/fullsize/camper-support.jpg

Looking for idea on how to support my camper of truck?

I'm finally gonna take my camper off my truck due to the Kindness of site member AJCAL225 giving me some replacement used camper jack stands, yet don't wanna just leave the camper on just the stands. So now I'm wondering how is it you guys support your Truck Camper when you take it off your truck? It probably weighs about 3000 lbs as it sits & need some way to keep it safe? I was wondering what & why you like whatever ways you do it? I used CinderBlocks before but they are heavy & take up space when stored for future use. I was hoping for a simple fast set up?

RE: Furnace starts out great & then later not?

I've been thinking about adding a vent into the bathroom shouldn't be too hard? & would save me the trouble of placing an electric heater in there to keep the toilet from freezing.

RE: Furnace starts out great & then later not?

oldbeek, I have to agree with Suburban that you have restricted ducting causing the high limit switch to open. Mine does the same but I don't think mine cuts out at six cycles. Mine runs a long time with about 2 minutes burner on and 1 minute burner off. I have also added an additional duct but have not tested it yet. I have an OEM board not a Dinosaur. To the OP, can you tell if the burner is cycling while the blower continues to run? To be honest these last two post are much more technical than I understand? Yet appreciate it, in time I 'll start understand your lingo. :)

RE: Furnace starts out great & then later not?

Ok, yes I got our propane in Los Angeles. 1st night in New Mexico, it was about 8 degrees & we had no electrical hook up & ran the Geni for a while then the furnace ran strictly on battery. & did not stay hot all night, very cold night for us. Next night we had electrical hook ups & same thing, temps were about 10 degrees. Then back to Arizona & it was about 16 degrees it seemed to keep warm through the night. Then last night here in Laughlin we just just ran the electric heaters, so don't know if it would kept warm, our last night will be boon docking in the desert so we'll see how it works that night.

RE: Furnace starts out great & then later not?

Ok, camping right now & I've learned, that it's not a battery issue being the battery seems to stay above 12 volts or more & still stops blowing hot air after a while? Yet turning it off & turning it back on seems to get the heat going again ? So what you guys think?

RE: Your fav spot between Blythe & Yuma along the Co. River?

Looking at my map. Blythe to Yuma by the way of the Salton Sea is way out of your way. http://i.imgur.com/luIzIF3l.jpg Uhmmmmm..... I live in Los Angeles & heading to Az & was either going to stay north on the 10 or drop south to the 8 being I'm heading to the Tucson area. So not sure what your saying?

Your fav spot between Blythe & Yuma along the Co. River?

I plan to spend a day this month camping along the Colorado river, between Blythe & Yuma & if I go the Yuma way I'll probably spend my 1st night along the Salton sea. But I see many campgrounds to choose from some are lakes & others are just river. I will have our 95 lb dog with us & want a place he can swim & I can get in some fishing. Using the AllStay app on my I-Pad I see too many to choose from, so I was hoping you people might have some suggestions?

RE: Anything worth visiting in Northwestern New Mexico?

Alb does have the Sandia crest tram. Nice view from up there. I doubt the tram allows dogs?

RE: Anything worth visiting in Northwestern New Mexico?

Blanco, Kalyzoo said that Gouldings is the only campground around for Monument Valley. May have been when they were there. The Indians has a RV Park at the vistor center at the entrance for the 17 mile drive thru the Valley. Monument Valley is AWESOME!!! Don't miss it!! Might there be a campground open around the 1st of the year that is within the monuments? One that allows you to sit in your camping spot surrounded by the beauty of nature? Or do you have to drive away from the nearest camp ground to see it all? I would love to camp amongst it all.
