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.

RE: Why don't TC makers use the Truma Combi units?

You can make one yourself using your existing water heater some piping and some routing of the pipes so works by convection. For instance, running the hotwater heater piping around the floor of the camper. Now that would take some kind of baseboard to hide and protect the piping but you could figure another way. under the floor for example.

RE: Skamper 950 truck camper manual/ electrical help

That's strange Towpro, mine has a metal housing on the bottom as well and is raised above the floor. BTW, what is that fabric looking stuff stapled down? It's as though they removed the bottom housing

RE: CB Radio antenna

Seems like a lot of work for an all but dead technology? It is something I have invested all new equipment because when/ if a real emergency occurs it might be the only form of local news/ communications. Ever have the '' all circuits are busey'' on your cell? I like listening to the road warnings up ahead from truckers East to west highways truckers are on 19. North to south highways they use 18 ????? is that right?

RE: Used Truck Advice: 06 GMC 2500 Sierra 4x4 gaser

Much wiser to find the truck and camper being sold together. Seen some great package deals that way.

RE: Big lighting improvement for 2011-16 F250-450-Pics

OK looks good but now you blinded all the drivers coming in the other lane. True I always have to slow down when one of these trucks are coming at me from the other direction. My trucks got an aftermarket bright lights I can do but won't do it for safety reasons.

RE: Worth replacing AC unit on Arctic Fox or not?

Some buyers do not want the AC. Keep the price lower and let buyers get new if they want not dealing with something else being used.

RE: cost of camping

Waking up to the sound of silence, having great coffee with a wonderful feeling of independence and freedom. That's the grand part of it all for me along with natural surroundings. A guy like me gets so spoiled that you end up not wanting anything to do with crowded places nor having to rely on other peoples cooking, hotel service and their bathrooms with no soap. Life is too complex without and RV.

RE: Winterizing An Already Frozen Truck Camper .... Doh!

I'm glad you got it done. Be sure and buy the non alcohol base rv antifreeze, it will help preserve the rubber seals in the toilet. I always put in little in there to keep the seal from drying out.

RE: Winterizing An Already Frozen Truck Camper .... Doh!

Don't forget to pour rv antifreeze down the drains so the ABS 'P' traps don't freeze. You did not say that you did that so just wanted to mention. Don't forget shower drain too. Didn't you say that you used to be in charge of all the military RVs in the north pole?
