RE: Kerrville Texas Truck Camper Rally

Thanks the rig works well for us we move around a lot and I would get rid of the 5th wheel and be full time in the TC but for the fact I owe more on it than it is worth. But I guess that is way life goes. We are in South TX now in the oil field, will be here a couple of months then to North TX for a new grand daughter. Hope every one has a great summer.

RE: Kerrville Texas Truck Camper Rally

We were there also. Had a good time to. Did not win at chili but did not cook so what can I say. I did eat a lot though. Enjoyed the food fellowship and the bonfire the last night. Glad all had fun. George

Rico Titan Jacks

I need a Rico jack if any one has one. They are the 2500# electric jacks, don't need the motor just the jack. If you know of a place to purchase them that would help. I know from a dealer but looking for cheap. Thanks for any help George

RE: Newbie Lurker - TC Arctic Fox for Year round Living

I have a F450 Ford CC Flatbed and a Arctic Fox 990 TC. I have not spent a year in it at one time. I have spent 7 months at one time and 5 months another time. I pull a open trailer with a Harley Triglide on it. I have a 5th wheel we live in when not traveling with the TC. Good luck with your decision. I would do it but that is me, to each his own.

RE: Advice on Truck Campers

As said before there is a lot out there. We also have a 40 foot 5th wheel toy hauler and just got tired of pulling it and finding so many places we could not get into. We were lucky we found a F450 Ford set up with a aluminum flatbed 6 big storage boxes a big foot self leveling system and a 990 Arctic Fox TC. we have had it for 3 years and love it haven't moved the 5th wheel yet. Good luck in your search, and we do travel over 12000 miles last year in 7 months in the tc.

RE: Center of Gravity Question

I have a F 450 Ford with a Aluminum Flatbed and a 990 Arctic Fox. My CG is right over the axle, but I still have a problem with the steering and it sets high in the front. I was told that air bags would give me a lot of side to side movement. I also have hitch extension with the spare tire mounted on it and pull a 5 x 10 trailer with a Harley Tri Glide on it. I am going to try and move the spare to the front of the truck and put some batteries between the front of camper and the cab of the truck for more weight in front of the axles.

RE: Newbie Lurker - TC Arctic Fox for Year round Living

My wife and I full time RV, started out in a 40 foot toy hauler. We carry a Harley Tri Glide with us for day trips. We found out after 2 years that a 40 foot 5th wheel was a lot of work and aggravation. We do have a home base in South Texas, a small lot in a retirement campground. We bought a TC rig from a friend, Ford F450 Crew Cab Flatbed with a custom aluminum bed and a Arctic Fox 990. We have not spent a year straight in the rig but in 2013 spent 6 months and in 2014 spent 8 months with no problem. We stay in the 5th wheel because we have it and can't get what e owe on it for it.

RE: jack not working

As I said Thanks for the information. The problem was a blown fuse in the Rieco controller. The right rear jack has a little bend on the shaft that extends due to an accident last year, I have another jack and will change it out. I don't like taking the camper off the truck because it has to raise up so high due to the height of my truck. Thanks again

RE: jack not working

Thanks I found the controller under the sink and the top on is the right rear jack. The controller clicks every time I push a button on the remote so I guess the remote is working I so not have an red back up remote. where would the fuse for each jack be it acts kie that is the problem. Did not see them in the fuse panel and not near the controller, Thanks so much for the help it has been invaluable George

RE: Can I get a Camper support leg repaired?

I tried to get one straightened and it cost more than a new one. I bought one from factory that was scratched up and got a good discount.
