RE: Ford Super Duty slated to get aluminum body

... On another note my wife's cousin just bought a 2014 Super Duty. A palm frond fell on the hood and dented it. I am only assuming it has an aluminum hood. Please correct if wrong. According to a Ford Mech friend, it's steel.

RE: 2010 Arctic Fox truck camper available

I had great difficulty in finding our Arctic Fox here in Ontario, Canada so I can see your point. Very helpful. But then again there is no way you (nor anyone else) can prove you have no affiliation with the seller. I am sure that's why the forum rule exists. Well, no it's not. Camping World does not take consignments. So, unless the OP works for CW as a salesman, he has no interest in the rig. Only CW does (and since they are owned by the same folk that own this forum....)

RE: Vancouver Island: Port Hardy, Campbell River

We spent quite a bit of time in the Port Hardy, Ucluelet and Tofino Ucluelet....aquarium, wild Pacific trail Tofino... whale watching .... Be advised that the road (BC-4) has some really twisty, narrow parts. Last time I was on that road the speed limit was 30 KPH for a few sections (yes 15 MPH)

RE: Vancouver Island: Port Hardy, Campbell River

Ferry's Sounds like your plan is to take the ferry to Duke Point, I've done that route many (MANY) times (for work). It's a good ride and great views. That being said you might find that the Washington ferry is a better deal (cost wise) if you have an RV. I would NOT take the ferry from Horseshoe Bay to Nanaimo, as you will have to drive through the metro Vancouver area.

RE: Cable Co's going all digital using QAM system

QAM is the default for Cable-co's. Most modern TVs have QAM decoders built in so they don't need decoders, unless the channel is also encrypted. I am not aware of a single "digital" TV that does not support QAM decoding. So you only have to worry if you have an "old" analog only TV. Although there are TVs that can be addresses by the Cable-Co to enable decryption. Cable-Co's use QAM because it allows more "channels" to be encoded in a "channel" then 8VSB. TV Broadcasters use 8VSB because it's has better signal-to-noise and noise control.

RE: 2010 Arctic Fox truck camper available

What makes this one so special that you have to "advertise" it? It's in Statesville, NC. That's why it's special There may not be many other Arctic Fox campers for sale in that general area, so this particular member is possibly doing someone a favor by posting it here.... someone here might be looking for a late model AF Correct, a couple I know in Texas drove to Florida to buy their (used) Fox

RE: Ford Super Duty slated to get aluminum body

Corrosion is a known, controllable effect. Well, except for morons that add their own accessories and don't think about it. Saw a news piece today that the new F-150 has "best in class" cargo and tow ratings, largely due to the lighter body.

RE: Inverter wire into RV 'house' circuit question

This is the one I used. It switches as soon as the Inverter is powered up. This can be important as you should NOT bond the Ground and Neutral together. That is never done at sub-panels or connections below the main panel (ie the first panel after the power arrives from the transformer) I lead the power from the trailer breaker panel to the transfer switch, then back to the panel to connect to the load.

RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

The article is on page 5 A Local/State Kitsap Sun 9-30-14. Inslee said this tax proposal could become part of HIS (for you that say the Gov. has nothing to do with this!) budget (that HE sends to the Legisature). And he does have a veto vote! It was published on-line Monday at 8:55AM

RE: Hail! Trailer is a write off

If the damage is as described I'd certainly keep the trailer. The insurance company looks at cost to repair vrs scraping, and takes which ever is the cheapest route. They look at expenses only, not utility or future value. The reality is, costs to repair a trailer, as a function of value, is much higher then a car.

RE: Washington State possible new taxes on MH & TT's

I read the Kitsap Sun article days ago to say J-Rooster mis-quoted it is an understatement. It was exactly along the lines of the KOMO report. It's a recommendation from a study on how to fund the State Parks Even if the Gov endorses the plan, it would have to pass in the next session of the Legislature. While I agree the State Parks have been underfunded for years, targeting a single category of users (RVs) to provide that funding sounds like a non-starter to me. Like the "plan" a few years ago to close a bunch of Parks. Until a careful reading of the leases revealed that many on the list would have reverted to the owners. The leases state that the State must keep those parks open, and accessible to the public, or they revert to the property owner, with all improvements.

RE: Repair a Camper with a bulging side ?

I've done this type of repair, twice. Time consuming but not tough if you are handy and know basic (and some advanced) repair stuff. I would never pay that kind of money for a rig I knew needed structural repairs. First you park it out the the weather, then you start tearing it down to get all the rot, etc out. Then you put it back together, with clean, new materials.

RE: Pullrite super glide hitch, looking for bed pins

I expect the pins in question are NOT conventional hitch pins; ie the ones that connect the bed-pins to the hitch. The bed pins are probably only available from PullRite

RE: Will that ladder and roof hold a 300-pounder?

It depends... Arctic Fox has a photo of one of their units with 32 people on it. Others, well, a friends 150 lb grandson broke through the roof of his older Fleetwood. As noted, you are at, or past, the weight limit for ladders also.

RE: Looking for camping suggestions US 2 ND, MN, WI

Snork, Forests in North Dakota? The NF Service does run some "National Prairie" land there though. There are a couple State Parks in eastern ND on US2 BTW, do NOT plan to spend the night anywhere near (100 miles plus) Williston, there aren't any available.

RE: RV park near Mt Ranier NP

Full hook-ups means you need to use one of the commercial campgrounds at Ashford or Mineral.
