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

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.

RE: Solar Prep Help

The wires were behind the wall with the sticker. I was just Leary of cutting a hole in the wall and the wires not being there. Panels on, controller installed, batteries wired, all that is left is to wire up the panels. tomorrow is another day.

Solar Prep Help

I have a 2008 990 Arctic Fox. The previous owner had a ( one ) solar panel on the top. It is solar panel prepped. I found the plug on the roof to plug the panels into, the wires in the batter box to hook to batteries. I can not find the wiring that comes from the roof or tell where the wires from the battery box end. there is a sticker on the wall by the information panel that says solar hook up. Any idea where these wires end so I can connect to solar controller.

RE: What leveling system should we put on our TC

I have a F 450 Ford with a 990 Arctic Fox. I hardly ever take the camper off the truck, only in a must do case. I have a Big Foot 4 point auto level system on the truck. I pull in power up the system push auto level the jacks come down done deal. I then lower the rear jacks on the camper for stability, to stop any rocking side to side. Very satisfied with this system. I have the Lipert 6 point on my 5th wheel and it works great also. George

RE: Shocks

I had my rig weighed while in Oregon last year and the combined weight was 15,200. That was loaded with water fuel clothes and every thing else. We were on the road 7 months straight that year.

RE: Round #3 for 19.5 tires. Where have all the KM's gone?

A couple of years ago some one on here recommended Hercules tires. I bought a set and put them on, they are still on the truck. Wear is great but they won't balance. Tire store said the rims were bent but I doubt that all 6 rims are bent. Taking them to a truck tire shop and have them trued, see if that works. If you can afford Michelins go for it they are on my 02 Thunderbird and do great.
