RE: Compressor for topping trailer and truck tires to 80 psi

1) No. On mine, inflation requires pulling the trigger. 2 and 3) Can't say.

Can't post

I'm posting this from trailerlife, since rv.net won't allow me to post. It returns Error 520, and states there is an unknown connection issue between Cloudflare in Hillsboro and rv.net.

RE: Compressor for topping trailer and truck tires to 80 psi

When shopping, look at the duty cycle. I bought one of the 100% duty cycle Viairs since I don't want to be waiting around for it to cool off. One of my winter projects will be to frame mount it. I found the search function here to be helpful in making my selection.

RE: trailer tongue

Hitch extensions reduce your hitch rating by 50%. Tongue lengthening reduces your tongue weight, unless other adjustments are made. I found the best option was an extra long draw bar.

RE: CPAP 12 volt options

I avoid hookups and generators, and have no PV; so efficiency is of great concern. Plugging the CPAP brick into an inverter means you have loses at two conversion points that can totally be eliminated by plugging your 12 V DC CPAP (such as Respironics) directly into your camper's DC supply. Dedicated circuitry is not required, tapping into the bedside light circuit works just fine. The humidifier stays home.

RE: Happijack 4150's stop?

You should be able to find instructions at the Happijac (no k) website. The wired controller can either be reset by disconnecting like you did, or by simultaneously pushing the all up and all down buttons.

RE: There must be a way to do this with a.....2017 Silverado

Just remove the spring door The door provides a retention stop on the seven pin side that would be defeated if removed.

RE: Turned away,told me they dont accept truck campers

EDIT: Found some info on removing TC from truck. Appears there is a law. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/24136271/print/true.cfm The links to the law inside the linked thread are dead. With a little searching, I came up with this: https://govt.westlaw.com/calregs/Document/IDE898DF0437B11E0BDCFEEDCD67AC89A?viewType=FullText&originationContext=documenttoc&transitionType=CategoryPageItem&contextData=(sc.Default) No mention of the prohibition in question, and the history section shows it was repealed in 2011.

RE: There must be a way to do this with a.....2017 Silverado

My boat trailer has surge brakes with a connection to the backup lights to keep the brakes from engaging when backing. The 4 pin never did much good, so I spliced a 5 pin into the camper harness. The 5 pin will also accept the 4 pin connectors on my other trailers. I've noticed that exclusive or approach on many newer vehicles. New ideas aren't always better.

RE: SB camper on a LB truck

Has anyone ever put a SB camper on a LB truck? We found a new 2016 9.2 Livin Lite TC that is $6000 cheaper and much more roomier than the 2018 8.6 Livin Lite. We love the aluminum body they both have, but we hate the split mattress that's in the 8.6. Running that way now. I needed to build a wooden framework for the front of the camper to contact. Torklift Tiedown extensions needed to be drilled to keep the turnbuckles away from the front jacks. Nice storage area in front of the camper. I recall one member uses the space for a generator.

RE: RV Outlet NEC Code Question

Breakers in the box make it a sub-panel. No need for a main breaker in the box for it to qualify as a sub-panel. Install a couple ground rods per code and you're good.

'17 Super Duty passenger seat belt warning

On a recent outing with the new truck we noticed that no warning lights or chimes happened when the front passenger seat was occupied and the belt unfastened. I was thinking a service appointment was in order, but when I checked the manual it speaks of the driver's side only. Is this really the case? Hoping someone can confirm. Thanks.

RE: Tongue weight

The recommendation is generally to put 10% or more on the tongue, and I've never heard that this should vary based on the number of axles. If you cannot adjust the load, can you move the axle?

RE: Hit the scale, how can I be this heavy?

Well, at least we all know undies are light weight..... Go commando. Lighter still.

RE: 2017 Ford Superduty Beds

No problem with the bed so far. I recently pulled out my old emergency CB radio to see if it would still key up. The magnetic antenna would not stick, anywhere. It is not just the bed that's aluminum, it's the entire body.

RE: Post your Sneakiest Stealth Camp

We were stealthy, but the neighbor wasn't. Pulled into a boat ramp parking lot late one night and went to bed. Evidently others thought that was a good idea, and set up a tent nearby. The lady in the tent was a screamer. She apologized to us in the morning, saying it had been a long time.

RE: Camper / Bed Alignment Products - Do they exist?

stevenal, I looked at the web page for the happijac Tie Downs and it isn't clear to me what exactly these things are doing to hold the Camper in place. It seems to me it is a system that is still using the camper tie down points and just integrates with the bed of the truck in a different way then the current frame tie-downs I already have. As far as I can tell, it doesn't actually hug the bottom of the camper to prevent movement in the bed physically. Do you have experience with the system by chance? I don't own the system pictured, so others can correct me. It appears to include adjustable guides that are intended to contact the sides of the front of your camper to prevent shifting.
