RE: Ram 3500 truck bed

https://i.imgur.com/zk9kgOt.jpg Found this... Well the ribs in bed are a bit away from where campers perimeter might sit..at least beside the wheel well. But I really don't think outer edge of camper unsupported that distance beside wheel well would be an issue.

RE: Heavy duty hitch extension??

Noted OP says not really interested in product, but question about if Automated Safety Hitch still available prompted me to send email and ask. Below is note I received from them. { sales/safetyhitch.com We have been in business delivering Automated Safety Hitch since August, 2008 without interruption. Presently we are delivering 22 per month, soon to be 44 then 66 or 88 per month. We expect to have ten production lines, (two shifts), open by years end with each production line producing an average 22 per month. We are signing on dealers so that nobody in North America will have to travel more than 150 miles to see one and experience riding in a demonstration. Thank you for asking, Michele }

RE: Happijacs, what will happen if.........

I look at it as weight transfer, front jacks already carry a lot more than rear. As the rear jacks are raised some of their weight/load moves to front. IE not paying attention I can easily raise one rear jack off the ground- To a degree yes the fronts are at fulcrum point and the higher rear is the closer they get. Also they are mounted to camper at 90°, feet, front & rear are fixed to ground so as you raise as mentioned and load becomes less vertical thru legs (tube) is when tube failure more likely. Even with front jacks fully collapsed and rears full extended I doubt you could topple over on its nose, though mostly because either the jacks would buckle or mounts fail first. Be interesting on camper destined for recycle to test some of these failure scenarios to see what really happens. But not on mine, going up/down nose is always higher till it contacts bed of truck.

RE: toilet water valve

Basically a one way valve. The purpose is to keep contaminated water from potentially back flowing into source, however unlikely. https://www.thetford.com/parts/rv-toilets/ Identify toilet model and parts (some toilets VB/flush valve are separate, some are combined in one unit-) then search on-line for parts. I would not leave toilet connected to water source if I knew valve wasn't functioning or disabled.

RE: What is a “converter”?

Yes as others have described converts AC to DC, regulates charge to batteries. Generally also serves as distribution point for AC and DC lines. Where AC breakers and DC fuses located. https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-wG2bw42/0/bfe9918c/O/cvd3.jpg

RE: Smelling propane

You have an Atwood water heater Your Flame is burning Fuel Rich...not enough air Clean burner/orifice/burner tube **Disassemble burner tube (clean with small bottle brush), remove orifice (soak in alcohol the air dry----NO high pressure air or poking anything thru it), combustion/exhaust tube (run wire thru then tie rag to end of wire and pull back thru...chimney sweep) Reassemble.....fire up water heater Adjust 'air shutter' so flame is BLUE with slight roar Adjust shutterAt 1 min in-shows adjusting the air shutter which if closed would cause to burn rich.

RE: Eagle Cap quality control continues to disappoint

Yes, heater is missing a duct collar to connect hose. They just spin on into the heater hole. From here it looks like the hose is way too short to connect but the way its ripped appears it once was connected to something. Possibly another piece, ext or ell? The pics dont give me the impression it left factory like this.. I dont know if duct collars are brand specific (dometic/suburban) but are available. With no hose seems most of the air would come out that open port. http://i.imgur.com/F7olvfZm.jpg width=300http://i.imgur.com/af53UMYm.jpg width=300

RE: Photos of my Eagle Cap 811

Yea!...noted your pics on other thread. Just need to resize, they are huge 'width=640'. 640 is forum recommended standard, 800 is max size. Imgur doesn't have select able sizes to display so have to manually insert {img}https://i.imgur.com/Fd6afFy.jpg width=640{/img}

RE: BradW's photo links on the Truck Camper Forum

Losing a picture hosting site and association with past posts with no way easy way to recover is tragic. The amount of shared info that has been lost cannot be replaced. Did you start an account on flickr or free trail? I'm currently using smugmug which is 7 monthly or 55 annually, no free accounts. I have duplicate free account with Imgur. Both of these mirror original photobucket account, which most have heard that story. Fortunately photobucket changed thier policy and older pictures at least show, likely temporary (unless like many account was deleted in response to pb fiasco). I look at thier attempt to regain trust like someone jumping off a cliff and trying to swim back to the ledge. Thankful old photos show but do not use to post new pictures. Some of my older posts where thread wasn't locked Ive update urls- older locked threads show until photobucket closes. Flickr (which now owned by Smugmug, acquired financially troubled Flickr awhile back) is 7 monthly or 60 annually. They surprisingly still offer free hosting service. Either service offers trial period to check features which are simular. One of the things that attracted me to smugmug is part of the url contains original file name, easier to relocate. Seems easier to get different share links, though bbcode copy/pastes picture, its also makes it clickable to album so usually strip out url string. Issue obviously is on forum posts if host site is changed (site closes) the linked photo url needs to be changed. On older locked threads that's impossible, and threads that are not locked, it to say the least painful to update the picture urls. https://help.flickr.com/pricing-faq-r1qHsTEbU https://www.smugmug.com/plans

RE: Photos of my Eagle Cap 811

{img}https://i.imgur.com/Fd6afFy.jpg width=640{/img} https://i.imgur.com/Fd6afFy.jpg width=640 Hmm- well different without account and not as simple but picture links can still be found. Clicking your link to picture album if I right click on any photo-then click 'copy image location' will yield picture url which can be pasted into RV net editor assistance image button window. https://i.imgur.com/kFfdPeG.jpg Alternate clicking the embed link on album (3dots), then right clicking ON picture same, 'copy image location' (don't use the copy link button) https://i.imgur.com/tb4Yuvj.jpg Free account makes it simpler because it adds the img tags so you can past links directly, bit of learning curve otherwise. The 'RV net photo posting' link is great, utilizes IMGUR.com service. Its simple and easy for quick one offs but I don't know it was intended for all photos (Not affiliated with Good Sam Enterprises) plus I like a bit more control/access to photos and storage. Like any photo hosting service, especially free, they could go away at any time..

RE: Atwood Water Heater Wont Light

https://i.imgur.com/3oxpfPM.png Oh I forget- mines a manual light. Allen wrench? Not having a remote start but I would think its just a matter of repeating lighting procedure from inside to purge the pilot tube.

RE: Photos of my Eagle Cap 811

no dont use the 'embed post'. If picture clicked on in an album-should show share links.. https://i.imgur.com/bvuGCmW.jpg width=640 copy the BBCode If the share links arent showing... On the picture, hover over with mouse-there are 3 dots upper right, click on those. A drop down menu will appear, click on 'Get share links' https://i.imgur.com/zcuzO15.jpg width=640 that will open another window. Select 'BBCode (Forums)' and copy link-paste that link into your RV.net post https://i.imgur.com/dM1T6r0.jpg width=640 If you pictures are large write in after **.jpg & before {/img} tag width=640 in the link {img}https://i.imgur.com/dM1T6r0.jpg width=640{/img} carrots replaced

RE: Atwood Water Heater Wont Light

Ya, I can stand there for 5 minuets sometimes before the pilot will light on the WH if it hasn't been used in a while. Though mostly because my thumb gets tired from holding the knob in :) and have to stop and take a break. Lighting stove, due to more flow, helps purge the lines (only run burner for half a minuet or so) but the wh still takes a bit.

RE: Testing a photo upload

https://www.icloud.com/photos/#0Tt36VR-5FEV4GgLkqeFa-mAQ.jpg not sure- if I right click on your {image}link (Win7) and select 'view image' it will load. I tried adding the url as an image link but wont open, just shows image tag. Adding your link as a url link its clickable and will open. I assume without any real knowledge or use of icloud service, icloud photos cant be embedded? edit https://support.apple.com/guide/icloud/share-photos-and-videos-mm93a9b98683/icloud as I read you can share link and folks can view photo for a limited amount of time but I dont see a way or if allowed to directly show icloud photo within a forum.

RE: Custom/DIY Truck Camper Tie Downs

There have been quite a few self built over the years. Fairly recent one that went into some detail but couldn't find thread. In the TCUsticky thread, under Camper Loading, Hauling, Tiedowns: there are few older threads
