RE: Best steps for our tic's ever.

Sorry. Didn't mean to suggest I searched for the part number, I searched on the part number. Also searched for "Landing Gear" and such, and cannot find it on-line. The buy it now button on the Torklift site does not in fact buy anything.

RE: Quit the Kayaker's Life?

I just picked up one of these for my tandem Hobie. It was cheaper than the Yakima, and looks to be heavier duty; although it doesn't fold up like the Yakima. Good for up to 20'.

RE: Sooooo... Do you lock your door?

Locked usually. After the locks froze up with two dogs inside wanting to relieve themselves, we adjusted the policy to account for weather.

RE: Best steps for our tic's ever.

So when will the product be available? I searched on the part number with no luck, and the buy it now link on the Torklift site only sends them contact info. It would be nice to have a set this summer.

RE: Who makes custom ball mounts / shanks / stingers?

Anyone fabricating such a thing would find themselves liable for any failures caused. How much moment can your hitch handle? 4 to 6" represents a huge difference in moment. Suggest either going with a hitch designed for the moment such as one from Torklift, or using a weight distribution system.

RE: scissor steps

Just to be clear, the gap I spoke of (and plock40 as well I believe)is horizontal in nature. It is clearly seen in jefe's second photo. Step from the threshold with your foot sideways without looking and you may find yourself dangling between the camper and top step. I'm thinking of attaching the top step directly to the bracket to eliminate the gap. The geometry will change of course, so I may need to add a step or perhaps the Landing Gear.

RE: Northern Lite Stereo

Nothing kills my battery faster than listening to the radio. I'd be looking for high efficiency or low A*hr specs.

RE: scissor steps

Finally got to try my new 8" Glowsteps. What a difference, they feel rock solid. The steps are not perfectly parallel, but very much closer than the old ones. The gap plock40 spoke of could be corrected by shortening the top arms, but then the steps would not be able to swing away completely underneath the overhang area. I think we'll use them as is. Nice upgrade.

RE: Aids for loading TC...How about these?

My camper widens behind the wheel wells. Might work if you could turn them around to face forward.

RE: Parking a Truck Camper at a Tent Only space in Yellowstone

I put the camper on and double checked the registration. Still says passenger vehicle.

RE: Parking a Truck Camper at a Tent Only space in Yellowstone

Vehicle: a thing used for transporting people or goods, especially on land, such as a car, truck, or cart. Nope, doesn't fit. My TC has no wheels like a car truck or cart, so it can't possibly be an RV or any other type of vehicle. I'd sure like to hear of someone actually being thrown out. TC-ing since 89, and never had a problem yet.

RE: Thetford Aqua Magic IV

Five gallons will reduce your capacity by that much. If the tank is dry, get it wet.

RE: This is embarrassing: Magnatek failure?

When my Magnetek gave it up, I traced the problem to the open ceramic power resistor. I replaced the resistor and got it working, but I had never been happy with this thing and turned around and bought an upgrade kit from bestconverter.com. Three stage charging, all circuits filtered, and much better efficiency without that hot power resistor.

RE: Parking a Truck Camper at a Tent Only space in Yellowstone

In my experience "tent only" at Reserve America and elsewhere means no hookups, exactly what I want with my TC. Look at the maximum vehicle length to make sure you fit. To those who say that only means only, I ask: What site do I use if arrive in a in a passenger vehicle and wish to unroll a sleeping bag on the ground, both tent-less and RV-less?

RE: 19.5 Vision wheels on Ford Super Duty's

My old '97 light duty F250 had hub centric wheels, something new to me at the time. A square cut o-ring filled the small gap between wheel and hub. When one of them slipped and got mashed behind the wheel, I went to the dealer for spares. No spares, they said to take them off. Later I saw the Service Bulletin that said the same. Guess absolute center isn't that important. Had to change out the lug nuts due to a recall also.

RE: 19.5 Vision wheels on Ford Super Duty's

I found an answer to my question above. Perhaps it will assist the discussion:http://tires.about.com/od/understanding_wheels/a/hub-centric-vs-lug-centric-wheels.htm

RE: 19.5 Vision wheels on Ford Super Duty's

Even if rings were added, don't you still have the problem with the flat Ford lug nuts seating properly against the rim? Can't see what purpose the rings would serve.

RE: 30 Amp RV Plug End

Great quote in your signature, SoundGuy. You've got the colors wrong, though. "Red" should be in green text and so on.

RE: Refrigerator 12V wire size

Why re-wire it for 12V use? I've had my three way for 17 years and can recall only using the 12V setting once while driving to refill both empty propane tanks.
