RE: 1988 Sun Lite

The box-Pretty sure something previous owner added https://i.imgur.com/sqZexga.jpg https://i.imgur.com/MKew4cO.jpg The box 'looks' like it has a row of LEDS, the switch 'looks' like a momentary switch... which leads me to think (or just a WAG), a monitor that is briefly powered by pushing the switch. What it monitors or why unknown. Looking inside possibly see where the wires go might give a clue to its intended function. The wires appear 14ga or larger so tend to lean toward power? Though I would suspect that year camper it doesnt have a battery? Being outside possibly connected inline on the umbilical cord to check truck battery? Again just guesses...

RE: Atwood Jack clunking....

Yes kohldads post was very good, showing disassembly of the Atwood jack. however pics missing. Might PM him, unless he sees this thread, possibly might have access to old pictures. http://www.rvtechlibrary.com/chassis/atwood_jacks.pdf , starting page 26, shows but not 'how to'. Parts if needed likely difficult if even possible.

RE: Removing Contact Overloads

I've always considered the bottom leaf as part of the main pack. Assumed describing a top contact overload like Ford/Dodge uses. Even IF bottom leaf was removed (I wouldn't) doesn't look like enough room to run back up bar and double nut U bolts? Phone call to verify what they expect and off chance they mis supplied incorrect U bolts. Just looking at kits appears 3 sizes of u-bolts?

RE: Battery Selector switches, best for tidy surface mount

Most any of the battery switches that have protruding dial section would be easily flush mounted. Require making mounting ring attached to back side of wall, screwing switch to it from back side. Or if you don't mind screws showing just a spacer on back side (if panel not thick enough) between switch and wall and screw/nut thru all, like many marine applications. I have the round Perko style, no ears, so would end up a bit recessed on 1/8" panel. Doesn't really lend itself to flush mounting. To flush mount it Id separate dial face label and knob, mount with shaft thru panel, stick label on panel reattach knob. Have to get creative on mounting spacer for no visible screws. Is there a thread showing what coveredwagon did?

RE: Duracozy or livin’lite quicksilver 8.0?

Livin lite https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/news/the-rise-and-fall-of-camplite-and-ford-truck-campers/3/?singlepage=1 Though I didn't see models that were not on a trailer? Duracosy.com does look interesting, web site still up but doesn't look like updated since 2011? They have a contact form

RE: Adding an A/C

Link to Dometic install pdf depending on model. Lighter than many units at ~75lbs it is also taller at about 13", but over all smaller foot print which is why I have one. Fit within available area. It works well though rarely use Not knowing structure on your '95 I'd get on the roof and check sag-constant load of 75#+ & bouncing 'could' be issue. At about 15 amp load I wouldn't share with refer. If you don't change panels possibly breaker style (brand) can be had in a tandem configuration to fit.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

Our Generac impact-36 rated fuel usage FUEL CONSUMPTION (IN GALLONS PER HOUR): LOAD - GASOLINE - LP NO ------ 0.14 --------- 0.20 HALF --- 0.32 --------- 0.41 FULL --- 0.54 --------- 0.77 Mine, 2001 vintage, was available LP or gas, virtually same generator The only difference in part numbers is fuel system parts and few sheet metal bits. Shows identical engine controls charging electronics etc. LP: carb, regulator, LP solenoid Gas: carb, fuel pump, filter If you had owners manual it lists the different part numbers for both. Though I'd do more research it appears it may be as simple as swapping fuel systems ~$150. Quick look around parts available, carb, F/P. Conversion seems simple enough. However fuel source isn't included, which to me is real hurdle.

RE: Super Basic Solar Upgrade

Really sounds to me like you have a handle on it- it's not that complicated and what you plan will work, well. Basic kits most will use poly-crystalline panels which will charge your batteries. Basic kits will use an PWM controller which will charge your batteries correctly. Many vendors for simple basic 2 panel kits under $250. Complete; panels (2)100 watt panels, mounts, wiring, connectors and controller. (only as example) (amazon) other listings Better Mono-crystalline panels generate more power, but at additional cost. Better efficiency in delivery using MPPT controllers (desirable) but again adds cost. Buying 'top shelf' unfortunately, price increase is a lot more than the 10-15% efficiency gain. Does offer better efficiency/charging- but price reflects. Buying basic does not require doing again though room to 'upgrade' should you want. Snipped... All I want is to install two solar panels with a charge controller to provide charging capability to my existing flooded lead acid batteries... I want to use the factory wiring that exists in the camper. The controller location is prewired with access behind a cabinet panel. I know the wiring is going to be minimal and won't carry the current efficiently. The plug on the roof is like the type you see on battery chargers. One step at a time...That obviously will work with adding SAE plug to panel wires, however most of the kits include 10ga wire to get from panels to controller. Here are my questions: Can I add a solar controller and panels that will charge my batts without worrying about any ill effects to the converter being affected? YES- Does the solar back-feeding the converter cause problems? NO. Both questions- solar charge controller (& other charge source) read and react to battery not other charge source. Where is the best site....? Well not the best but CA Travelers compiled list of threads/installs within forum and what others have done (not all TC) Just my 2¢

RE: leg bracket repair

While brackets can be replaced, does appear some structure damage. Whether rot or impact cant say but doubtful brackets alone will fix without getting to what they are bolted to. Riecotitan site

RE: Camper jack torn off driving

Look again. You can see half of the exposed bolt holes running left to right. The entire front half of the stud is gone, split right across the bolt line. There are also bolt holes going in (looking straight into the photo)... I see where front lag bolts pulled out of face and face of wood split off where side lag bolts went thru but I also dont see where there were thru bolts. Looks similar to our rear jack mounts-no thru bolts just lags. Which Id look at replacing mounts that also had thru bolts, though don't know what jacks you have. Just give more mounting surface if you can get to back side of front wall corner.

RE: 2002 Lance 811 Rebuild - Update 08.03.2020-FILON TODAY!

Awesome rebuild- added to the TCU thread. Noted posts june 1 & 7, pics missing, did you move them?

RE: Any thoughts on a repair?

Our campers front wall looks like that, exposed 1x's behind the water heater, water tank. The left side is small cabinet behind jack and 1xs are covered. Ours they aren't the structure but added on face for supporting other stuff. My vote is though 20 years old, has some issues and doesn't help how to fix- but it really looks like p/o hit something pretty hard and pushed/twisted the nose back into the weakest area. Hows it look behind the refer vent? Even on a sound camper your going to have some bobbing between truck bed and cab-should be 2-3" or better between cab and camper nose.

RE: Need replacement 2 prong cord from Atwood Jack

https://i.imgur.com/YdcmmMb.jpg Yes they are avalaible-2 pins off center or to one side. (same as 3 pin but 3rd not installed. marine/auto parts even wall mart use to carry.

well forum lately has been working, no more 'temporarily unavailable" pages, but now it gets stuck opening a page loading 'connecting to http://code.jquery.com/'. Have to stop refresh or go back retry?

RE: Need replacement 2 prong cord from Atwood Jack

Trolling motor plug may work, same style but splicing wire may be needed. amazon On the 2 wire changing receptacle to SAE style plug like rieco-titan uses would give more options for motor plug.amazon Mine uses 4 pin (manual switches) on drivers side

RE: Suburban furnace not restarting

Could jump terminals or remove wires at thermostat and tie together-if heater comes on and stays on its the thermostat, if it still shuts off problem elsewhere. Fan comes on?

RE: Dolly for Truck Camper

Images-Right clicking and click view image, I can see them otherwise not showing. On 4 wheels generally lead end wheels would be fixed and the push side would be steer. I'd imagine pushing cart sideways be desirable so a means to lock temporarily until need to pivot. Dont know if these help. Much smaller wheels on my welding cart. It would turn in circles before going straight or where ever it wanted. https://i.imgur.com/yMxoqXD.jpg width=640 Just drilled thru base with clear hole into castor flange, base is threaded https://i.imgur.com/R3BGY0j.jpg?2 width=640

RE: Happijac

Cant help with remote issue. Hex driver bits common, but likly be 3/8 or 1/2 sq drive so adapter would be needed also common (assuming 1/4 cordless hex drive) The 1/2" male hex x 1/4" hex isn't that common. Close would be a pipe plug remover but they arent cheap for single bit, about $30.. Proform 67447 Pipe Plug Removal Tool. umm...This popped up HAPPIJAC Hex Drive Camper Jacks https://i.imgur.com/3ygyDRU.jpg amazon.com/Lippert-182912/dp/B01GP5BSGS/

RE: Carseat Advice for Quad Cab Truck

fordservicecontent.com/Ford_Content/catalog/owner_guides/99f23og4e.pdf If you dont have owners manual, seating & safty use pages 82-106 with several sections on child seat use. Also truck can be retro fitted with tether system. I believe kits are no charge (page 106), but unsure about installation- Local police dept, DMV, possibly fire department might be better source than our opinions here. Local Ford dealer likely where I would start. I would agree with your wife's thoughts about putting both in rear.
