Pin Heigth

I have a 2010 Fuzion FZ 383 Toy hauler. I need o know how far the pin plate is from the ground with the unit level. I would measure myself but I am in Iowa and toy hauler is in South Texas. I have a F450 Ford with a fat bed and want to put a 5th wheel hitch on it but want to make sure I get one low enough, My truck sets very high. The truck is not raised it just has 19.5 tires and heavy duty suspension. any help would be appreciated a Raptor is the same.

A/C problems Thermostat ?

I have two problems wit my a/c 2017Hideout 26RLSWE 1. With the thermostat set on auto the a/c will cycle on and off just like it should, but several times it has cycled off and not come back on. It has got pretty warm in the camper and I had to turn the thermostat off and on several tomes to get it to work. works ok on high fan setting. 2. When it is the least bit warm out side the a/c will not cool the camper. I have thermostat set on 68 and outside temp was 85 inside was 80. I know I will not be able to stay in this thing when I get it back to Texas, I am in Iowa now . Any Ideas would be helpful thanks George. I have this posted on a Keystone site also if you happen to be reading post there as well.

How To Repair a Hole In Front Cap

I have a 2017 Hideout Travel Trailer, the lower part of the frnt cap is black diamond plate. The plate is aluminum and fairly thin. I tow with a F450 Ford with a flatbed. I was backing into a tight spot and cut to sharp and punched a hole in the diamond plate with the corner of my flatbed. Does any one have any ideas how to repair with out replacing the whole piece across the front, the trailer is all metal not fiberglass. Put a piece of black duct tape on it to seal out any water intrusion. Thanks for any Ideas

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
