RE: Near Disaster Propane Refuel Experience

Sledge hammer to remodel doesn't sound good. :) Just an expression of my frustration with rv manufacturers leaving a guy with the in ability to get the tanks out when required.

RE: Near Disaster Propane Refuel Experience

If I had to use a sledge hammer to remodel that propane tank compartment I'd do it. I would never have them filled up high in place like that. Put in the right size compartment or your asking for trouble again my friend.

RE: TC storage question

I like mine stored outside so I can find leaks right at the repair shop not on vacation. I like the patina of the stored outside look.

RE: TC storage question

building permits are cheaper and ordinances are much less stringent outside the city limits too. I lived in an HOA, all it did was prompt us to move away.

RE: Ref. blowout

Typical cause is a dirty burner or pilot. Weak flame blows out easy. Clean them. I've found you can take away some airflow to help that problem out, while on the road only . Loosing the airflow between the top and bottom vents does not work though when parked for a while. Fridge efficiency goes way down. (And things get hotter in there) X2 on that. The burner gets caked up with carbon. Mine had to be cleaned after 13 years. Works fantastic now.

RE: What TC destinations?

I don't think there is any where that is exclusive to a TC. Also, there are small ones that are barely there and triple slide huge ones with giant trucks. I like a TC because there is more availability to camp with a smaller RV than a large one. If you are looking for places to go, broaden your search to almost anywhere that suits you other than a RV park that caters to large rigs only. Yes pavement parking and campgrounds like a squeezed in subdivision is not my idea of going places. I go on roads least traveled for the most part but don't want to avoid great natural wonders either. I've been rather surprised by the amount of beautiful and relatively unused resources for camping along lonely roads. Not to mention the small town places to stop and eat. Such out of the way locations that they rely mostly on the locals business. Most are great food and friendly atmosphere. I have a buddy with a big diesel pusher. Wants to camp with me, see and experience some of what I have told him about, but he has so much gadgetry on that motorhome that it seems things always causing problems and therefore cannot get away from civilization/ repair facilities.

RE: What TC destinations?

Appreciate all the tremendous response. It's really helping. You are all so very nice. I think that Moraine Lake in B.C. has to be the most beautiful lake in the world. If you haven't you better get it on your places to see.

RE: What TC destinations?

I'm putting together a list of travels to do. Love the places that are beautiful in the fall as my camping season starts after schools get back in. I've been to the Canadian Rockies 12 times. Im thinking Whistler and the Coast Range Mtns in western B.C. and the Black Hills with the many scenic routes there. Been many years since Alaska so that's on the list too. Thinking Mtn back roads of Colorado in such a way as to mosey every mtn road there is there. Thank you so much everyone.... I'm the guy that has to have trees, mtns and no interstates if I can.

What TC destinations?

What places do you find youself going back to more often cause it's so very great a place? I'm starting to look for new travels lately. Hoping this will not get moved to another forum as TCrs go better places. That's for sure.

RE: Truck Camper Disposal?

I got rid of a camper once by getting permission from the fire dept to burn it. They came out to watch how quickly they go. Even with aluminum siding it went bye bye in a matter of minutes. Like the time of a short coffee break. The aluminum sizzled and dripped into puddles we picked up after cooling down, I was surprised how fast it went but we had a brush burn pile going real hot first and rolled that camper over the fire. Incidently, California has more mountains than Colorado.

RE: Woodsmoke Campground Pet Policy

I think it good also since people seem to be less caring how they affect others, so all good.

RE: Bigfoot fiberglass

It look like excessive pressure point damage. Perhaps not placing 2x8s far enough forward or rearward as they are supposed to be near the corners and like Reddog says, running past is the very best.

RE: Bigfoot fiberglass

I got aluminum angle for my northern lite that has the same radius as the fiberglass radius corner so it snugs up better.
covered wagon 09/15/16 07:29am Truck Campers
RE: Bigfoot fiberglass

are you sure its not damage caused by the support board while off the truck? Looks like a result of a excess pressure point and not a spread load or even support. But what do I know. Possible heavy gauge aluminum angle running the full length? Something to reinforce and spread out the pressure point? No screws... just laminate it on with polyeurathane glue. Like adding reinforcement to existing weak area. I would overdo it with 3x3 aluminum angle completely bedded in sealant. no screws. I only say because it looks to me like a repair will just reappear

RE: Truck Camper Disposal?

Go to a small town dump where its not a zoo. Nice quiet country dump. Set it down on stack of pallets. Take time to remove stable lift system. Dumps heavy equipment rolls it into dump pile. Don't damage your truck by having it yanked of the bed of the truck, use the stable loads to unload first.

RE: Bigfoot Truck Camper & 2006 Dodge fuel filler cap

If you have chains and turn buckle instead, just install a steel 'C' bracket over the fuel door between the end of the chains/ turnbuckle.

RE: Less Graphics-Before and After

I like the WWII Corsairs so I would have left it on there.

RE: Less Graphics-Before and After

It does not. That is a good looking camper already. No need to remove anything.
