RE: Happi jac issue

I've had good response from happijac, send your defective motor and you have the choice of rebuilt or new motor. At different prices of course. SkipJ

RE: water heater help

You leave it on while you drive? Seems a waste of propane. SkipJ

RE: Thinking Ahead - Colorado

If you go to Moab, don't reserve too many days unless you are bringing your 4x4 vehicle. Our RV park, Canyonlands Rv park, doesn't refund if you leave early!! They told us over the phone when we reserved they would. But when we checked in they said the opposite. People we spoke to who mountain bike were disappointed because they share patches with 4x4 and didn't feel safe. They wish they made shorter reservations. Can't do too much in the N. P. without a 4x4. SkipJ

RE: Anybody using Stable Lifts?

We met a couple a couple of years ago with a stable lift on their camper, they were very pleased with it. I was impressed with how quickly they got the camper off the truck. I have had one failure on my happijac lift after using it twice. It is rarely used but apparently the motors are not well waterproofed, the factory suggested I put ziplock bags over them when in storage!!! You might keep in mind that some camper manufacturers don't recommend using the camper off the truck. SkipJ

RE: Lance or Artic Fox or ???

One thing that is important to me is a factory tour. Also, for us being near the factory that will do repairs is important to us. Finding a dealer with a good service department that sell your brand can be difficult. We are lucky we live near the Airstream factory and the manufacturers in Indiiana. SkipJ

RE: Lance or Artic Fox or ???

Someone said that RV's are made just "good enough". Some people expect a product as good as the manufacturer says the are, then complain when they aren't. Others are easily satisfied, an owner of a camper of the same manufacture as mine was happy to refinish the woodwork in his brand new camper. Someone once told me that owning an Rv is a "hobby".

RE: 2003 Outfitter Apex 9.5 Value

They were not in the bluebook last time I looked. Makes them hard to value. SkipJ

RE: Overland Expo 2013

Somehow I missed the plans to camp together, ended up in the Handycap area for my wife. We did get back to the TC area on Friday but came during the fireless campfire and didn't stay because we didn't dress warm enought and were freezing. Came back saturday met a few folks, but everyone was elseware. Met Wazoo Saturday afternoon just walking around. Sorry we missed meeting more of you. Sounds like maybe we should have a RV.net TC handycap area :-) SkipJ

RE: Where are all the Truck Campers ?

When we got somewhat north of SE MI last year saw more TC's than on our normal travel. All we have is national and state forests with designated camping areas. Still nicer than commercial campgrounds in privacy. SkipJ

RE: Where are all the Truck Campers ?

"For me; I've PAID for the truck already. I'm putting it to dual use. The camper is free from DMV and insurance, being already covered by the truck. The ability to drive freeway speeds is also a great value. Stealth, ability to maneuver, etc. all things a dealer won't tell you if they don't carry campers." For those of us who didn't have a suitable truck for camping, the price goes up, HD trucks are not inexpensive, I saw an article about the entry level corvette indicating it would be less than most of the one ton trucks I find on Internet search of dealers lots! Some people have to make do with what they have. SkipJ

RE: Where are all the Truck Campers ?

I wonder how many TC's there are in existence ? I can buy a new class c Motorhome for the price of a F350. Not that many people have need for the capabilities of a TC, vs the disadvantages . SkipJ

RE: 2005 AS Interstate quirks/gotchas?

10 year rule in most RV parks? SkipJ

RE: Modding an F-350 up or an F-550 down for TC

I believe you can't get the same options on the over F350's, more of a work truck. SkipJ
