RE: License Plate issues

How's things in Newport? Lived there for the first 18 years of my life. Great. I love living in the postcard.

A cordless drill that requires no charger or battery and is easy to pack Run time determined by the operator.

RE: License Plate issues

Mine gets moved to the hitch extension complete with license plate lights and backup camera. Does a hitch pin constitute a secure fastening? Think I would use a bolt or locking pin at least. Every registration plate issued under this chapter shall be securely fastened to the vehicle to which it is assigned, with the upper edge of the plate horizontal, at a height of not less than 12 inches from the ground measuring from the bottom of the plate, and maintained in a location and condition so as to be clearly legible.

RE: What is normal parasitic DC amp draw?

I thought all appliances were off. Does the fridge light work even when the fridge is switched off? Don't forget about the anti-condensation heater on the door seal. I disconnected mine to ensure it doesn't get switched on accidentally.

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

Not to mention, the typical WD hitch shanks put the ball several inches back from your typical straight shank... WD changes everything. The WD bars reduce the moment caused by the tongue weight even with the added moment arm length.

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

...and a company like Reese, B&W, or Torklift wouldn't be liable? They would also be liable, but I expect they have more engineers and lawyers than the local fab shop.

RE: Best steps for our tic's ever.

Thanks Bedlam. $128 plus shipping. See my modification in the other thread.

RE: scissor steps

A little re-bolting, and the gap is now gone. The length was then wrong of course. Too steep for four steps, while five would make them tilt backward. Still too steep with Landing Gear, so I purchased some radius corner aluminum tubing on-line to make them a bit longer. I think we achieved the best compromise between step angle and bottom step height, at least on my flat driveway. Will try them out for real soon. http://files.engineering.com/download.aspx?folder=2c3cb411-3670-4373-b10a-26626bd28236&file=IMG_0209.JPG height=480 width=640http://files.engineering.com/download.aspx?folder=018e859b-642a-4b43-bcd9-23ce79f93232&file=IMG_0210.JPG height=480 width=640

RE: wife won't go on Long camping trips due to bad ride!

Sleepy, You stated the following: "I have seen as I am sure many of you have a note inside the glovebox that specifically says "This truck is Not suitable for slide-in truck campers"" Please stick with the facts as given your unsubstantiated remarks are not welcome! . 32 page thread substantiation enough?

RE: Camping in TC off truck

... I an sorry, but I don't carry ANY other supports except the 4 jacks the camper was DESIGNED to be supported on. .. Hope you don't use Happijacs. From the manual "Camper should be supported on a sturdy base during storage to prevent damage to camper floor and the wing walls. When living in camper, the floor should be firmly supported."

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.
