RE: Mopeka Products

One of those items that seems either loved or hated. Made short video of use. youtube. Course Camper batteries need changing, I get about a year. https://photos.smugmug.com/Base/Mics/i-rdRg4vK/0/7c04acb4/O/moplink.jpg When too lazy to get up and push monitor button or open phone I can ask Margaret to check on her phone:) Our tanks are at shoulder height in camper- even empty not 'easy' to lift.

RE: Mopeka Products

I've had not an issue just a tad over 2 years. Monitor two 20# tanks in camper. For me I like them, alot. Mine came with the original rubber tank-spacers, Mopeka also sent me the aluminum replacement spacers. As far as I know they come with them now. Havent seen the new ones mentioned that don't require spacers on the tank, I have another I use in shop to monitor heater tank and BBQ.

RE: Converter will not charge batteries

Sorry not the magic bullet...its the charge line in from truck. Comes from thermal breaker that goes to umbilical cord. Previously was attached to the battery side of another thermal breaker that feeds front jacks (direct tie-in to battery). Issue was when camper batteries turned off the umbilical cord was still hot so moved it to the battery terminal thats no longer hot when disconnect off. Secondary was I added power disconnect switches to jacks- truck would power front jacks the way it was wired even if batteries off and jacks power switches off. At anyrate the black wire I show doesnt relate to your problem. i wasnt clear on your voltage check. Was the voltage drop at load noted at the converter battery pos terminal? The Converter pos remained at 13.5? Converter on, you should see same voltage (output) at both terminals. Converter off, you should see same voltage (battery voltage) at both terminals. I am curious about the battery voltage of 13.0- had you charge with somthing else?

RE: Parts for Dometic Fridge

That looks like correct switch, #2932665017. Unsure of dometicguy because it shows switch separate on diagram- most list as a kit, includes housing, lens and switch. Adventurerv link has one for 26+ship Ebay link 34 free ship

RE: Converter will not charge batteries

https://i.imgur.com/n54wdiS.jpg Wiring looks good from here. Could be a difference in function, mine is 10 years old but I can disconnect battery and converter does power circuit board. However, in normal use you want battery 'on' supplying power, converter just recharges it and shouldn't be used to power loads directly or without battery. My disconnect is between battery and converter so turning it off isolates camper from battery, (but it also wont receive a charge). But again battery should be 'on' regardless of converter on/off or shore power. my 2 cents- with battery on and camper AC connected, converter on- multimeter should show converter voltage at both battery & converter positive lugs. With converter turned off (breaker) you should see battery voltage at both terminals. If converter voltage shows at battery board terminal, Id pull the battery cable lead from converter at battery and check voltage there-should see converter voltage from converter on cable. Pulling battery lead at board terminal should see battery voltage on cable. For some reason (short of converter malfunction) with what so far has been related- makes me think some how cable from battery is one way, only sending battery power to converter but power cant travel back. I cant see how that's possible unless whatever was added as disconnect has that function?

RE: Converter will not charge batteries

The 'blue' wire mentioned was the lead from the old Mag. converter to the circuit board. The new P/D converter lead isnt blue, Mine was black, (current units may be red?). Would be outlined in instructions. Assume you changed the board https://i.imgur.com/ILUmniB.jpg Ya if no 12v when plugged in and battery off, something is disconnected. Trying to see how you could have 12v to fuse panel yet not charge. possibly battery lead connected to the converter terminal on board?

RE: Hot water switch on Seelevel Monitoring system

Simple on/off switch. Though unusual, they do fail. Mine, a 709P3, doesn't have the WH switch, however the switch body is the same 3/4" X 1/2" size as the 3 way pump switch. The HW switch is just 2 terminal on/off. Pump switch is 3, on/off/on. The pump switch might be removed from front but there are 2 ears that need to be squeezed and switch pushes out. Removing panel, the switch terminals could be momentarily jumped to verify its the switch. https://i.imgur.com/s8yA8lj.jpg https://i.imgur.com/XTtMqtf.jpg https://i.imgur.com/CoSbkqP.jpg

RE: mounting a propane tank to bumper

Typical 20# /5gallon tank generally is filed to approx. 4.7 gallons, (exchange service typically can be as low as 4 gallons or 80%). Propane weighs 4.24 pounds per gallon. On average, the tare weight (empty) of a 20# propane tank is about 17.2 pounds. (Some might be 18# and some might be 16.6#, is called the “tare weight” which is the weight of an empty tank. Tanks have “T.W.” (tare weight) stamped on the collar of the tank. ) All in all, a completely full 20# tank weighs approximately 37 to 38 pounds. My tanks are stamped TW-16.6. IF filled to 4.7 gals @ 4.24 lb per gallon that would be 19.93 pounds. 19.93 lbs of propane plus the TW of 16.6# = 36.5# for each bottle. (if exchange service used closer to 33# per bottle) FYI #30 pound bottles would be closer 55# filled The "WC" stamped number on collar is weight IF filled with water (not propane), used converting weight to propane gallons.

RE: What Portable Propane Gas Grill Do You Use?

https://i.imgur.com/13Nq47T.jpg We use a small table top-uses 1# bottles, think I paid less than $20 from local discount drug store, though several years ago. Folds up pretty compact, easily fits in compartment.

RE: Good thing Ford TC haulers don’t use the tailgates ...

Was going to say I remember biggest 'want' option was sleeves to quite the chains... https://i.imgur.com/ClyNF8d.jpg width=640 Realized its been 60 years since Ford offered 'positive tailgate retention'.

Nothing worse than pulling into pristine site to find big wet spot with corn floating. Generally haul it out. Try to camp within my capacities. I'll forgo a shower if it will avoid using the pooh bucket.

RE: NEWS STORY: Ford/Lance guardrail bridge

I hate stories like this, more so the sensationalism.. Once stopped the truck wasn't 'teetering' or 'dangling' and if it could roll would have rolled back onto road. IF the driver indeed was DUI-will be paying for it a long time-however its the fact that driving under the influence ends any other comments, other circumstance are glossed over-end of story. Thats a disservice..Ya dont drink and drive-you make ignorant decisions-stupid reactions, innocents can suffer and even if not your fault -it is. https://i.imgur.com/H8mbWdB.jpg Chipping ice to lower outrigger Drivers condition may have caused this accident, however it could have just as easily happened with no input (or lack of) from driver. Would have been an opportunity to educate or at least mention as many are unaware that conditions on a bridge, overpass etc, can be MUCH worse when crossing them.

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

I wonder if the Stow 'N Go can have additional steps mounted above the top hinge to span the basement height with one or two more steps when expanded ... just a thought. I preferred to have the step off the threshold rather than that transistion. Interesting- Mechanically you could, steps would fold. Could only go one step above Stow 'N Go pivot due to available depth..So 1/2 step height shy of being flush to threshold or where your at now (unless bumper to threshold= step rise, unlikely). Probably need to play with mounting pivots but the issue would be top step would need support somehow, at least I think, a few ways that could be done easily though. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Glow-Step/i-b5tZ4SQ/0/2638fff3/O/IMG_0131c.jpg width=640 height=480 We use T/Ls basement step but having that transition step part of the scissor steps in one unit, sounds like a marketable product.

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

Yes, Erector set is a good analogy. They do lend themselves to re-configuring to your specific needs/wants. There are a few threads on installs. Ours are also tread mounted flush to bumper instead of from arms. That does require moving the pin that goes into 'Stow N Go' bracket below the 3rd tread. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Glow-Step/i-3Cx2sKS/0/36c7371a/O/stairmnt32.jpg height=480 width=640 Ours the bottom tread can open/hang down a bit. Shown is max, cant really hang any further. If that inch could cause problems simple lanyard from top/bottom tread at the side. I had more issue with how far the landing gear leg hung down in stored position so reworked so they rotate up and do not hang down below steps. Stock location, forces snubber see are fairly static, only pulling step into bracket. The snubber could be remounted above bracket slot, move pin it goes over to bottom tread. That would help pull/keep treads together-however snubber would see some additional load, resisting treads opening, going down the road? Don't know if that possible movement would be enough to fatigue rubber.

RE: corsair truck camper - sewer valves - near front of camper

Where is the sewer hose connection for dumping? If the valves are located toward front of camper does that require off loading to dump or are they remote/cable operated?

RE: Range Hood vent mod?

That's pretty close to what I was looking for. Thank You for that @IAMICHABOD. Does anyone else have any pics? Thanks. There have been a few threads- the two I used wnjj's thread using 1/4 turn latches KKELLER14K's thread using rod which sounds like what described - however photobucket pics obscured Mine also, kind of merged both ideas but P/B pics obscurred vent control Simple choke cable would work, http://i.imgur.com/VAe51eqm.jpg

RE: Truck Camper Proctology

Ya unless you've already made cover, white plastic hole plugs can be had. Camera would be real handy but every time I need one unwilling to wait for it to arrive so workaround. Then cant order with no intended task. One of those tools that usually sets on the shelf but invaluable when needed. Curious the way the lights mount or the recessed hole mounting. Verse surface mounting. Pics look like the cut out was shoved up ('cept shows vinyl/paper)? Is this common on Lance?
