RE: What Travel Traler to buy?

We have had our Hideout 26rlswe for about a month now. Have spent every night in it so for no problems. We are retired and were full timing in a Arctic Fox Truck Camper for 4 years, Just wanted more room . Do not like a 40 foot 5th wheel , not the weight I have a F450 diesel. I hope the Jayco works out for you. We are very happy with the Hideout. I like the metal sides and cap , and the wood construction but that is just me.

RE: Generator

I have a 2500 watt Onan in my Truck Camper that I am trading in. I hardly ever run it, I to do not like the noise. I do not like campgrounds either. That is the reason I have solar panels and dry camp so much. But some times you just have to have a little power. If I stay in a campground I will not run my generator before 10:00 am or after 7:00 pm. Do not worry if I am in a campground with you I will be quite

RE: Generator

I mostly dry camp (boon dock) so no body out in the desert cares how much noise I make . Most campgrounds I have stayed in had power, Why pay for a campground with no hook ups. I just wanted to know if the generator was compatible. the Champion 3500/4000 does have a 30 amp RV plug and is $270.00 at Home Depot. Thanks for the info I may make a sound deadening cover for it.

can a regular 4000 watt generator be used on an rv. I do not need one often but it comes in handy sometimes to run the a/c. We have solar and it keeps batteries charged fine. We are full time rv'ers and dry camp mostly. I do not care for crowded campgrounds

RE: Arctic Fox 990

I have a 2008 990 on a F450 Ford Flatbed works great for us. We did install stale loads and it made a world of difference. I weighed my 990 a couple of years ago while in Oregon, It was 5000 ponds but we were full of water, propane, clothes and every thing else.

RE: C B Radio Help

I was close to the Interstate today and heard some one talking so I guess my radio is working. Like some one else said nobody uses them much any more. Thanks for all the input.

RE: C B Radio Help

I changed antenna yesterday and put a magnetic mount on the hood of the truck. No change, The swr was about the same with either antenna. On channel one the swr is very low on channel 40 it is high, channel 19 it 3.1 or so. drove down interstate 30 about 100 miles east of Dallas and never heard a word out of radio. I am calling the MFG tomorrow and talk to tech service. I have a 40 channel Cobra that does the same thing but it is old and I just figured it was bad. The weather channel on it worked well but cb was quite. That is the reason I bought the new one. The needle goes way over when I key the mike, like it is sending a signal. Thanks again for all the input

RE: C B Radio Help

The only reason I am putting a cb is we are caravanning to Mexico and every one is required o have a cb for communication with each other. Thanks for all the answers I am going to check the swr now and then run a tempary ground to antenna to see if it helps. The mirror is plastic so no ground there, Seems most of tis truck is plastic

RE: C B Radio Help

The Radio is a Uniden PC78LTD, antenna is 3 foot stick with mount and coax 1000 watt. Mounted to the drivers mirror on a F450 Ford.

C B Radio Help

I know hardly any body uses a cb any more but I put one in for a trip with several other rigs that are traveling together and we can all chat back and forth. I bought a new radio and antenna mounted it in my truck put the antenna on the mirror and drove over to the interstate to see how it would do. Nothing a little static but do not hear any one talking. I have a truck camper so the antenna is not above the camper but I should hear a trucker say something. Does the radio frame have to be grounded, does the antenna need to have a ground? They are both mounted to plastic. I thought the antenna grounded threw the coax and the radio grounded threw the power wire. I have not had a CB since the late 70s so do not have a clue anymore, can some one help. Thanks George

RE: Would you buy a flatbed for your TC?

Mine is a F450 with a Arctic Fox 990. and yes I love it. The height is a little scary when unloading/loading so I just don't take it off.
