RE: silicone sealers

I used silicone for years making fish tanks and it worked great for that and bathrooms / kitchens. Not a fan of it for anything else. Went in to a RV place a year ago for new furnace and guess what he used to seal the furnace vent, you got it silicone. Says that is all he has used for 30 year and would not use anything else. As soon as I need to redo it will use something else, but to be fair it is still on there and not separating.

I need a larger camper

I know that this is not a truck camper, but it makes me want to upgrade my camper to include more toys :B http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/04/11/article-0-1CFFD0CF00000578-964_964x555.jpg Here are links to some articles on it: Article 1 Article 2

RE: Charging the truck battery with solar- will a 1.5W panel do?

My 2002 GMC has a problem with the battery when it sits for a while, figured that it is the security system draining the battery. Let it go down one time and took the battery in to get it tested and they said not an issue with the battery. So I bought one of the 1.5w solar chargers and it did nothing to help. So went out and bought a trickle charge system that mounts in the engine compartment and just leave that plugged in with the TCer and it is fine now. Plus the charger will desulfate and vary the charge cycle to keep the battery in good shape. Was worth the $60.00 just to know that the truck is always ready to go.

RE: Northern Lite to rebuild

Just think of the unlimited opportunities to update the molds. Not a good thing to happen but could really bring on some great changes!

RE: Wardrobe Update #2

For me those side windows are more in the way than anything in taking up valuable wall space. Looks great!

RE: Wallpaper roof or ??

Just saw a nice build that they used a carpet to cover the roof (same as I have in my TCer) and it went on very easy and looks great. Added benefit of reducing noise as well.

RE: How level is your truck camper loaded?

When loaded and parked it is slightly lower on the right. When driving down the highway it is even............ think it could have something to do with the weight of the driver :h

RE: Hauling firewood on a front rack

For those with fire wood restrictions, does this apply to milled lumber? I replaced several sections of fence this year and saved all my old fence wood for kindling / fire wood. I'm just more curious than anything to know if it is just wood in the tree form that they are worried about or wood altogether. Some years ago I went on an out of State trip and brought my fire wood with me from CA. I had a small amount leftover and attempted to bring it back with me but it was confiscated at the border check point. Around here never a problem with cut and dried lumber. With the added benefit of it stacking really well. NEVER used treated or painted wood as the fumes are not user friendly

RE: any truck......

Seeing the issues with the newer trucks I would stay with what I have, only thing I would like are power windows (easier to shoot out of truck) and 4 doors so that I could get easier access to things in the back seats.

RE: $60,000 Custom Lance

I am not sure the truck's payload is enough to carry the camper :B

RE: Marker lights

In a vehicle there is not a ground but a positive and a negative. Negative most times will go to a frame, hard in a camper or a trailer unless it is metal so you will find a positive and a negative. You can check it with a meter, the best idea, or take an old one apart and see. Color will vary on the manufacturer so there is no specific color to look for.

RE: So I was going to hang out in the TC most of the day

Nothing like a set of radio alert tones in the morning to get the adrenaline pumping. Nice job! And for the rest of you, remember, don’t do anything that you don’t want to explain to an EMT later. X2 on the tones, really bad when you are having a weird dream and the tones go off. X2 on the explanation as well. Better yet add in that you don't want to explain to the 911 operator and the EMT / paramedic. My daughter is a 911 operator and has had some great explanations.

RE: put a hole in the bottom……..now what ?

Do you need to raise your camper up a little? If so I would put another piece of plywood on the bottom and that would be it. Cut it, coat it with something (like suggested a bedliner, Canadian Tire has a roll on one that is nice), attach to bottom and you are done. If worried about water getting in run a bead of something around the outside of the floor and another around the hole to seal it.

RE: 2004 RoadTrek 190 Versatile

Well after a lot of looking I passed on a VERY nice Class B. Clearance was the issue, still have the truck camper and I will stay with that till I can find a lifted van that is in my price range.

Step Question

As you may have seen from my other post I am going to buy a new set of steps. Now I have to decide on the 6" or the 8". Leaning towards the 6" but not sure. Do the 8" steps make that much of a difference? I am wondering if the dog will do better on the 8", or for that matter the dogs old owner :B Thanks,

Thank you Torklift!

Well after a lot of debating I decided that I should get some new steps for the camper. Everyone tells me how much they like their Glowsteps so over the weekend I did some research. I had a question about if I could use them with my existing mounting set-up as I actually have two sets of steps (one to the ground and one that only goes to the trailer and I only take the set I will need on that trip) so I fired off an E-mail. The first reply back was telling me most of what I already knew but Darrel asked me to send a picture of the steps I was using so he could make sure that we are both on the same page. Well the second E-mail from Darrel included some pictures of the steps with a measuring tape across them to get me the exact sizes. It is so nice to get real customer service. Makes you want to buy the product. In fact I am thinking that maybe I should replace both sets of steps. Will do one first and see about the second after I try these.

RE: The Emotions in a TC

Great thread!! I have been looking at selling the TCer and going to a van for a number of reasons. The thing that I love with the TCer is that it fits any place even if the road is a little rough. Last week went out to shoot some star pictures, went down a trail and when I got out realized the truck was in 12" ruts. With a van it would have been game over, put truck in four wheel drive and out I went. I have also thought of a 5th, have seen a couple that I love but the dealer would have to haul it to a site for me as I could never drive it down a road. Way to long and high for me. Looks like I may be in a tcer for a while.

RE: How to repair a hole thru linoleum and plywood?

1/4" plywood seems thin for the floor. If it is not structurally a problem then just fill it to level it off and put a carpet over it.

RE: BOV ????

Last year we had some major flooding and people around here would have done just about anything for a place to stay, why would a TCer not work? It would be as good as anything. There have also been train derailments that have forced people to relocate out of an area, a TCer would be a great thing to do that in as you have shelter and everything that is needed to stay safe till the all clear, sure beats crowding into an evac center. As well we have had ice storms that knocked the power out, again a TCer is a perfect device to use to survive the time the power is out, heat and a cooking area sure is better than nothing. Saying that you are going to stay place no matter what is foolish as there are many events that can force you out of an area. Even if you decide to ignore the evacuation notice mother nature has a way of changing that really fast. Having a fall back plan is smart and hurts nothing, but sure can help. It is like when we go to a fire, the residents cannot believe that it happened to them. They would have prepared if they knew it was going to happen to them but did not think the warnings to have a smoke / fire detector and an escape plan was for them.
