RE: Advanced shock absorber quest

I have no problem with my KYB Mono Max shocks. They are doing well and notice no wear after 10 yrs on the truck. I believe money and time that goes to keeping it simple is better spent.

RE: Stick with Glomex antenna or get a better replacement?

I found that regular coat hanger inside the camper worked better than the Glomax on the roof. I took it off, covered it with a piece of stainless and threw it in the garbage. At least it doesn't stick up catching things and at least in my mind I get a little better miles per gallon w/o it.

RE: Truck bed mat options

I put 1/4'' shims in the corrugated valley under my NL wider sides as those structure sides are right over a valley with no support in the corrugated truck bed. Does the side wall bulge a little and touch the tailgate post when you set it down? I had to strengthen my basement sides too. Camper sat lower in the back. I used 5 ply half inch plywood glue laminated to the basement sides. Also installed load point on sag side beyond basement sides.

RE: Switching to Lithium Ion Battery Bank?

I wouldn't do it. I would rather keep it simple keeping the old charging system and able to replace wet cells/ AGMs just about anywhere on the cheap. Not having to drive to any place special for replacement is a big plus. I would not have to worry about ruining them either like special treatment battery babysitting.

RE: MS Glass Outlet Inc did poor work.

...I'm taking this to the BBB also, but, I recommend you stay away from this company... Be careful, forum rules say; "Posts are not allowed in which a local, state, or federal consumer action board and/or legal counsel is/have been involved. This includes posts related to future, ongoing or past lawsuits." Shoot! All I want is to warn people about poor workmanship from MS Glass Outlet Inc. They are in Seattle/ Bellevue/ Vancouver, Washington State. Also in Beaverton/ Milwaukie/ Oregon City/ Salem, Oregon. You know especially if you guys are out traveling and need Glass service and don't notice a problem till you get down the road a ways. That's a bad deal I paid them in Cash unfortunately.

MS Glass Outlet Inc did poor work.

Had MS Glass install a new windshield to my cherry Dodge Cummins truck I've put so much time/ money and effort into. With only 90,000 miles never abused You would think that a company could take some small interest in doing a proper job. They did not get the window trim gasket (top portion) inserted onto the glass edge before dropping it into the window sealant. Headed back there on Monday, the sealant had already set up so instead of admitting they needed to redo the windshield they tried faking the trim with just a tiny bit of sealant and tapped it with blue tape. When asking about this they tried to blame me.... that I had pulled the first blue tape off improperly or too early when first installed, One gal going so far as to yelling and insisting it is my fault. By the time I got home from the yelling and band aid fix the top molding was coming loose again. So I took the gasket off with very little effort,(had very little sealant), when it was supposed to be sealed down bedded all the way by first having it inserted onto the glass in proper fashion. Anyway I'm taking this to the BBB also, but, I recommend you stay away from this company. They are paying piece rate to their employees and don't care about the customer. I had a bad impression of the place when first going in there and should have listened to my gut.

RE: How to stop neighboring campers from

Drop a few laxitives down his waterfill. No... I would not do that but fun to think about anyway.

RE: Gas station pet peeves

My experience has made it so nothing surprises me over what happens when your around other people. I avoid interstates... take the most back roads no one else takes. Fill up in small farming towns. Also have fuel card for private fuel card lock stations. I also live out of the main stream avoiding HOA situations and neighbors. A crowding world is only going to get worse if we don't raise our children properly.

RE: Alternate anti-freze

Why not just use RV anti-freeze. Gosh, about $2.00 a gallon at Walmart. Salt solution is not as effective and will likely be harmful to the dump valve seals. Glad you mentioned that because it's smart if you buy the expensive RV antifreeze as it helps keep the valves in good shape without the alcohol content. Alcohol will help break down the rubber seals over time and hurting the lube action will tear them up when in use.

RE: Which SB camper to get?

Northern lite only has one inch thick insulation. Just go BigFoot. 4 inches longer in length is no big deal. My NL would be a lot better if it had more insulation as its just not enough to go camping when its uncrowded in fall, winter and early spring. To be nice cozy and uncrowded... that's the best

RE: Which SB camper to get?

I would go for a Bigfoot Camper. They have thicker insulation and good resale value. Simple handling, just go inside and its already for your needs.

RE: How will this affect RVing. Very interesting video.

I'm sorry to be so contrary but, I do not want anything to do with things that have the potential to take away peoples mental alertness, navigation skills, sense of being an accomplished skilled driver. The more electronics the more troublesome more control.

RE: Best Truck Campers for Winter Camping

As Jeffe stated above there is more than just the build of the camper. I loved my Northern Lite BUT it did not have thermal windows and that caused a lot of cold. If you can have one built for your needs and the temps that you want to camp in. Bigfoots better with more insulation

RE: Propane Regulators Freeze?

They should be changed every ten years as a rule

RE: Inadvertent Happijac Eextension

I stayed with the wired remote when I changed my circuit board because I heard there are only a few different radio frequencies and could cause you neighbors jacks to go up or down

RE: Best Truck Campers for Winter Camping

Bigfoot has the thickest insulation out of the two fiberglass clamshell campers and both have no slide outs. I understand a slide out leaks a little bit of cold air. Yes and both have heated tanks.

RE: Help with Bigfoot TC Faucet Replacement

On my Host Yukon wet bath there is no way to access the bathroom sink faucet without cutting an access hole in the sink fiberglass skirt. Guess the builders thought the faucet would last forever. That is why they make deck plates. Made by Beckson they are watertight when the access plate is screwed back in. Come in different sizes for small or large areas, I installed 4 total on my camper. Two are in the shower. When not used they become yearly inspection plates to find leaks.

RE: CB Radio antenna

So with a Ham radio... wouldn't it reach too far to get the local news. Are there a lot of folks putting in Ham radios in their vehicles?

RE: KOA disappoints.... again!

KOA was nice to me when I stopped in to find the local free camping. Gave me full directions to the area. Another time on the way back from a fishing trip we were tired, hungry and needed a shower real bad. They let all 3 of us have a free shower, even loaned us the towels. They were very nice to us young bucks back then. Your right tho the camping seems too close to others.
