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.

RE: Camper on its side - help

The few times I have taken the Arctic Fox off I lowered it as low as I could get it and we were fine just loading and unloading that is scary. We stayed a state park in North Texas for 5 months and had the camper off so we could use the truck and again in Oregon, but take a small pick up as a toad.

RE: Camper on its side - help

I have a Arctic Fox 990 and was unloading it, I have a F450 Ford so it sets high anyway. Unloading it in the storage area I had the camper up in the air fired the truck up and eased out from under it. I shut the truck off got out and to camper to lower it. Here comes a big gust of wind ,hits on the side and it went to the right. I was worried about the camper as I saw both jacks on the right side bending, bur what really worried me was the Alegro Bay 45 foot Motor home setting next to me that the camper was headed for. It stopped before it went completely over just bending the jacks. I was able to lower it real slow and it went down and leveled out. I had to replace both jacks on the right side before I could reload it. As long as I have this rig I don't ever plan on unloading it again. I have another vehicle to drive so I park the rig in storage wen not on the road. Good luck with tours.

RE: Shocks

When I had them balanced they were on a balancer where the tire was spun and it told them where to put the weights. As the tires were spinning I could see the tires going up and down, like they where out of round not wobbling like I would think bent rim would do. The tire guy said they were bent and they do bounce.

RE: Shocks

Thank you for all the input on shocks, seems KYB is the favorite. I am going to get a set an install them. As a side note I installed a set of Torque lift Stable Loads yesterday and drove the rig about 20 miles to try them out. They did make an amazing difference. With the new shocks this thing may be a pleasure to drive instead of a job. Any one here of a set of 19.5 wheels for sale cheap I am interested. I had my tire balanced and was told 5 of my wheels are bent. They are real bouncy. George

Ok guys you answered my questions on the Stable loads, and I think You very much. Now I need to ask about shocks. 2003 Ford F450 crew cab, cab and chassis, 6.0 diesel, 990 Arctic Fox. Are Monroe shocks as good as any of the others? which is best Rancho, or bilstein. I have been looking on e-bay and these things are expensive for an old fart trying to get by. If there is a cheaper place than e-bay let me know .Thanks again George y.

RE: Stable Loads

My truck is a 2003 F 450 cab and chassis with a 6.0 diesel. I probably need shocks. I have replaced the sway bar links. I enjoy the rig except for the wondering issues. Thanks for all the input. George

Stable Loads

After reading several comments on here about how much the Stable Loads helped side to side sway and raised the rear of the truck when loaded I ordered a set. They haven't come in yet but sure hope they help. I have a F450 Ford CC with a custom aluminum flatbed and a Arctic Fox 990. As stated before the AF weighed 5000 pounds when loaded and ready to go. My center of gravity is directly over the rear wheels. I get some side to side sway and the truck seems to squat some in the back. I also have a problem with the rig wondering around as we go down the road. I have had the suspension checked, replaced the sway bares, replaced the steer damper. It feels like it is lite in the front, but with the diesel I don't know how that could be. The camper is as far forward as I can get it. Headed to Colorado for the summer so hope this helps in the mountains. George
