RE: Everything Was Going So Well.....Until It Wasn't

Tine for a new flatbed and full length side saddle boxes for storage under the camper wings. Never could get used to the fenders out so far on a dually style bed.

RE: Bush People

They seem to have big stressful problems every time right before a commercial. I don't think I could have that many in ten years.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

Thanks BB, yes, one of the stand off screws on mine are showing rust. Probably worse inside where you can't see it.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

Thanks for clarifying that and someday soon I'll need the grab bar end caps like you say, I am sure.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

Thank you, Mine are a bit different but still the same basic idea with three screws in the cap. Longest one in the middle goes thru the grab bars on ea. side. It's only one lone screw, the middle longer, that holds your entire weight so keep an eye on them, they are small gauge screws.

RE: TC Ladder Parts

The end caps off the bottom of the ladder cracked on mine too due to moisture getting into the bottom of the caps when it rained and over time became brittle. I just went to the hardware store with one of those cracked caps and was able to find a replacement for both that is better than what came on the ladder and so far it hasn't shown any signs of wear and tear. Like to know what that is if you have time to post a picture. Going to hardware stores is the story of my life but yet never have I seen what you are talking about. Sounds really good. Thanks to all for the advice.

TC Ladder Parts

Some of my ladder end caps are cracked. They are black plastic and some are starting to crack. Does anyone know where to get those? I also advise that you change out the rust prone screws over to stainless screws. I wouldn't trust the oem screws to hold you from getting hurt in the furure. Mine were over ten years old and rusting pretty bad. Thanks in advance.

RE: Need Your Screw Method Advice - 1968 Travel Queen Resto Mod

Remember wood glue and gorilla glue gets hard and brittle. Best glue in the world is TiteBond Construction adhesive the non environmental stuff if you can find it. 9 years ago we glued studs to a concrete wall and would not come off/ had to split them off with a chisel. I'm sayin it again... this glue is not lip service to an oratory it's the real McCoy

RE: Not a TC...but bear with me

I know I'm a bit strange.... At 9 yrs I started camping out of a cardboard box in my parents back yard. I used to love that. Guess I was destined for a TC.

RE: Elixir Converter/Charger issues

I believe the word 'converter' was coined to make everyone think its something special for an rv's 12 volt system. It is actually just a battery charger and if not a 2/ 3 or 4 stage charger, it is really one the least expensive chargers you can buy (feroresonant type) with higher ac noise levels. Not only bad for batteries because of it's inability to be sensitive for correct battery charging requirements but also very hard on computers that might be hooked up via a 12 volt power plug. I remember when my tc was new and the convertor had a few days to charge both batteries. Standing near the battery compartment, door locked shut, I could hear both batteries boiling away the electrolyte inside each compartment. That is when I decided that thing, a 'convertor' was taken out. After its removal I tore it down and confirmed it was one of the least expensive/ worse kinds of chargers you could ever have.

RE: Elixir Converter/Charger issues

It is a lot of extra work to change out the breakers/ dist. panel. It is not needed. Just remove the old battery charger below the dist panel, it is a pos, and place a good smart battery charger in there. Those convertors are junk and are great for ruining batteries. A marine charger...... (I like to avoid anything associated with rv quality BTW), Just a good deep cycle 3 stage battery charger that reads what the batteries need. I put in Xantrax when they were still a good company (previous owner)I wouldn't do that one now after reading some reviews.

RE: Cassette Toilet

Sorry you guys... Don't mean to be critical of dumping a cassette down toilets. Even that stupid corrugated sewer hose is hard to rinse clean and be 100% sanitary. Somehow the corrugated hose is going by bye someday. I want a smooth hose, whatever it is, it will rinse better and be more sanitary. If that means a macerator pump then that is what it will be. I just don't want the second task of having to pump a cassette and deal with a sewer hose too. If I can do it all in one clean step that is what it will be. I don't dump smelly grey water out anywhere except in a septic/ sewer dump station. Do everything in one efficient process. One reason for having all holding tanks is to avoid dirty public restrooms. I never go in those. So gross some are. Some have no soap and what soap they do have is usually a watered down version of some sort of bubbly bs. that does not clean.

RE: Wolf Creek 850 Water Leak!!!! Help

If you search 'wire reinforced corrugated hose' The correct connection is to use 3M 5200 inside the hose before it's slipped on and clamped. That is because the corrugated surface makes uneven pressure around the connection form the uneven surface. My Northern Lite, brand new, also did not do this correctly and I had a big leak from that. I don't think any manufacturer is properly connecting the corrugated water fill hose.

RE: Arctic Fox Tank Issues

A little less in outside graphics and more into what's underneath is a suggestion is to this company.

RE: Cassette Toilet

Think of the micro splatter on your clothes from dumping in a toilet :E Next you just sit down for a meal and of course you washed your hands but that smell on your clothes won't go away.

RE: New prototype truck camper

I don't like that rear bumper and tail lites. Looks like an expensive item perhaps only available one place for replacement if you crack that thing. It a big thing so where's the storage doors for inside of it? Another black thing mirrored on top looks like it's asking for more caulking seams and screws to keep maintained. Inside style is too trendy/ goes out dated faster than traditional styling? Not sure on that one as I'm not an interior decorator.

RE: Cassette Toilet

I appreciate you guys carrying on the discussion to help educate me about cassette type toilets However, this is just entirely my opinion, that there is no greater, more convenient option than to have a large black and grey water tank with either the regular hose for dumping and better still a nice flexible hose and macerator pump. Some areas I have camped are so beautiful almost pristine that even the most discreet dumping of grey water into a drain would bother most peoples conscience and not going to the septic dump station. Think about tenters... they don't want to smell stinky grey water emanating from a drain while doing their dishes at the water spigot. I think a lot about other people too quite a bit.

RE: Cassette Toilet

I now see but was blind before the pic. Thank you for that. However, doesn't a cassette mean your running to the station more frequenlyt as compared to the grey tank which is larger? You don't need a station, that is the whole point. As for the grey water, many of us use a bucket to drain this at the campground and eliminate the need for a dump station visit, which allows for extra capacity in one's grey tank. I don't understand because the small cassette black tank is only around 6 gallons so doesn't it necessitate going to the station more often? Plus I hope you guys aren't just dumping your grey out in the bush. That stuff stinks and is bad for hikers and animals. Attracts bears?
