RE: Stair well light

How SCVJeff's stair well lights up, I did something very similar but used an adhesive LED strip light. Although I did run my own wiring and also installed an additional switch that is independent of the patio light. I also removed the black only grip take and replaced it with grip tape that has a reflective yellow strip in it. Found the yellow stripped grip tape at Camping World.

RE: No AC.... Deal breaker?

OP, If you ever desire to do some traveling here in the states and go below the border states, you will want AC. You may not use it all the time but better to have it. Heck, I live at just under 8k feet and it was 85 outside today. Sometimes you never know.

RE: How many have crawled under your trailer recently?

Was under mine on our last trip where I was able to trace down a fouled ground that was affecting my slide. Ground was really loose near the steps. Removed, cleaned, greased and tightened. All better now. I actually get under mine at least once a summer. I feel I know my trailer like the back of my hand.

RE: Need some direction with replacing skylight... please

You can probably get away with only cleaning the area where the Eternabond tape is going to patch the hole. The rest of the skylight area would be up to you but I would probably try and get it cleaned up really good. RV roofs, or any roof for that matter, is not something you want to cut corners on. Do it right, not over is my motto.

RE: Need some direction with replacing skylight... please

it's the word c r a p embedded that is getting filtered. A poor filter at best. Also does it to Gr a p evine. This Eternabond link has instructions for cleaning. But yes, you will want to remove all of the existing Dicor sealant as well as clean it as best as possible so the Eternabond can have the most secure bond possible. https://www.eternabond.com/v/vspfiles/assets/images/eb_hvac_tips_install.pdf

RE: Need some direction with replacing skylight... please

It looks like that cut is on the edge of where the skylight cover was as there must have been a tree branch, or similar, impact that broke the skylight and punctured the roof element. I would independently patch that cut first. Clean that up really good and use Eternabond tape as a patch using the Eternabond recommendations for prep. Also, this is assuming SB140 will not harm Eternabond. Once it is patched, proceed on installing the skylight cover as normal.

RE: Just added a Truck Camper!

Congratulations! You have accomplished my goal for RVs which is having both a TT and a TC. TT for luxurious family vacations. TC for selfish remote getaways where a TT just can't be taken. I want to have better high country remote access while towing my ATV trailer. My biggest issue, I am not allowed to store my TT, or even a TC, on my driveway. I would have to build a fence to partially block the TC which would work but my TT needs to be stored offsite.

RE: Towing up the mountains

The only reality of those TFL videos is the armchair racing and brand loyalty comments that follow. I live about 45 minutes from Eisenhower Pass (the real name, not IKE Gauntlet nonsense... OP, not criticizing you :)) and those videos are about as valuable as Toyota's Space Shuttle advertising stunt. It is amazing how many, who watch those videos, take to heart that because one truck made it up to the pass 30 seconds quicker, the other slower truck(s) are complete junk. Are people really that stupid? Those who drive that stretch of highway also know that it is not often you can wide open throttle it all the way to the pass because of traffic. Also not shown, adverse weather, wild life dodging, blinding sun rises/sets etc. The most important thing you should be looking for in a truck is can your choice of truck tow your intended weight safely at an adequate speed to get you to your destination. Well sorry I dont mean to be picky here but the REAL name of the pass is the LOVELAND Pass as it always was before and since the interstate. Only when the Eisenhower TUNNEL was built did folks started to call it the Eisenhower pass. (I think this EP name started with traffic reports) Note: it is possible that it has been officially renamed but I find nothing to support that. Yes, you are correct that technically, the I70 section that opened in '73 is Eisenhower Tunnel... but many locally refer to as Eisenhower Pass to distinguish from the real Loveland Pass over Hwy 6. One of the main reasons I believe is because of the different direction one might go for winter sports to "thumb" a back country day of skiing/snowboarding or to hit A-Basin. I do know Loveland Pass intimately since I've ridden my bicycle up it almost 20 years ago... much respect for those who do the Triple ByPass or Double Triple ByPass. But I agree with you this "IKE gauntlet" stuff is pure Webipoop from those who feel it necessary to make everything sound "cool". Yes, they might as well call it: The Mountain Dew EXTREME Truck IKE Gauntlet EPIC Challenge. They could also sell tickets and come up with all kinds of marketing junk to sell. Would be an EPIC event ;) :B

RE: Need some direction with replacing skylight... please

Wow, 10 minutes! I should have had you do mine. I get the feeling donn0128 was thinking this thread was about replacing a vent lid, not an actual shower, non-venting, skylight.

RE: Hard side vs aluminum side trailers

Nothing wrong with either. However, because of where I live and the amount of hail we can receive, I prefer not to have a TT with aluminum siding or even an Airstream type trailer.

RE: KOA ridiculous charge

That KOA is very nice, in a beautiful area with views and walking distance to a casino. That place will be booked solid all summer long as people try to escape the summer Denver heat without having to go to far up into the hills. The first person who posted supply/demand... nailed it.

RE: Please please- Do you know this place

Estes Park, CO. Golf course - check Water (Lake Estes and Big Thompson River) - check Average Aug high 77 - check Within a days drive - well, yes/no, so 1/2 check You're also at the doorstep to high country access. So, if it's not cool enough in Estes, go higher into Rocky Mountain National Park or ???

RE: was this one of you guys??

It is impressive that the TT was upright and not in pieces. True. If you pause the video as the trucker is driving by the TT, you can see the entire side of that TT is destroyed, door buckled in along with side wall. It may not have broke into pieces, but that TT is obviously a complete loss. Also, for the mention this video has been around for a while... not sure why someone would go to the hassle of embedding 2015/07/20 on the video. What purpose would that serve?

RE: Keep water lines from freezing

This thread, Arctic Fox winter use mods, is about mods done to a slide-in truck camper however a lot of the mods would transfer over to a TT. Maybe look what this guy has done and it might give you some ideas. From that thread, one mod in particular shows a sleeved hose heater applied to the fresh water tank's hose that runs to the pump. You could do something like that and have your fresh tank filled. In the event the temp drops to sustained freezing, you could pull in the city water hook-up and still have water running from your tank. Other than that, the guy had some good ideas for cutting off drafts as well. Some of that thread goes into more an extreme winterizing, but some ideas for you to think about anyway.

RE: Difference in finding camp spot or towing w/ 28' v 30 v 32'?

Exactly.... My 30ft,tongue to bumper, is just to long to get into many places I hunt and camp but I never have a problem with it in RV spot . I was always dragging with my 34 on up trailers and fifth wheels. Now, I just got a 21ft Class C with abundant ground clearance for those hard to get places I enjoy. I'd actually like to go a different route by way of truck slide-in camper. Keep my current TT for family vacations, and buy a used truck camper for remote locations where I could also tow my short ATV trailer. Yes, truck camper living space is smaller so really, only for two people max but I would have no issues with tight access areas unless there was low overhead. Only problem... space to store additional truck camper.

RE: Difference in finding camp spot or towing w/ 28' v 30 v 32'?

From what I've seen, my 32' can fit about anywhere except tent or the real pop-up sites. Sometimes it's not just about the sites... but getting to the sites. I can show you plenty of locations I would not take my 30' TT and it has me considering downsizing. Yes, these are more remote locations for boondocking. So, in my case it is not about the space to park the TT but getting to that area which involves many tight switchbacks. It 100% depends on your individual expectation of where you are looking to camp. It is very rare when I can't get my 30' TT in a RV park.
