RE: tow vehicle advice

Hi, personally I cant imagine that 30 foot toyhauler will weigh anywhere near 15000 loaded up. I have a 32ft fifthwheel toyhauler in sig fully loaded with 130g of water, rzr, ready to camp that scaled at only 12500 lbs. (cat scale) I would not hesitate pulling it with that truck. My 22' toy hauler dry weight was 7500 lbs and pushed 11,500 lbs when loaded and filled. If I had an extra 8', I could easily add another 2000 lbs of vehicles. This would not be even include the weight of additional length and third axle.

RE: Want to drive through Mexico, looking for truck advice

I would focus on purchasing SRW 1-ton trucks with gasoline engines. DRW trucks may be too hard to get through borders due to restrictions, smaller trucks will not have the payload you need and large diesels are not as popular which make getting parts and service an issue.

RE: My new to me camper.

Where did you wire it to...I have an extra battery in each front wheel well not tied to anything using both with alligator clips...My house battery never gets low because I use the other two for the heavy work... Did you link the wheel well battery to the TC battery? Ipad keyboard errors lol My generator compartment has heavy battery leads where I was able to tie to the same electrical posts and run an Anderson connector out of the compartment to my truck. The run is a little longer than going directly to the batteries, but I did not have to drill any holes.

Even at 25 C, the virus can survive on surfaces for five days. https://www.aljazeera.com/news/2020/03/warmer-weather-slow-spread-coronavirus-200310050819610.html

If the virus does not do well in warm weather, why has it spread so much in Iran and Italy?
Bedlam 03/26/20 02:18pm Around the Campfire

I am more concerned if the virus mutates creating multiple strains.It will be much harder to build a cure or immunity against a changing target.

RE: We are gonna go camping!

We stayed out on Fidalgo Bay this past weekend. There were plenty of RV's traveling this week and big lines at the rest stop dump stations. We talked to our neighbors while camping, but each of us stayed in our site (farther than the 6' social distancing recommendation) and just spoke a little louder. No community campfires or show and tell camper and truck discussions (they had to log in online to see closer pictures). Three other truck campers were at the same destination (Arctic Fox, Adventurer and S&S), but none of us knew each other or planned for socializing.

RE: Corona Virus and RV Travel Video

I am going to my workplace about half the week and working from home the rest of the time. We are camping this weekend and finding plenty of others out and about but much less social interaction.

RE: Some ATV rules Help

Most UTV's are licensed with a restricted plate that does not have to honored in another state. Some states offer reciprocity, but it is not mandated. My dune buggies have unrestricted plates that allow access in all states. https://i.imgur.com/Iinvs6yl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/m7c8MZBl.jpg

RE: tow vehicle advice

Make sure your receiver and hitch can handle the weight. If you are running stock tires and rims and also load up your bed, you may need to upgrade wheels.

RE: Spring adhesive for rubber?

these things are cheep enough to not need to try to glue anything. Put them on an 06 ram which I sold to my brother. 100,000 and still going strong. Me, too. Soon to be 14 years on two trucks. 5 1/2 years on the current truck. That would be great and oh so easy but my bump stops do not bolt on and it appears it would be easier just to cut them off..I am not sure of the slot diameter for a bolt and I fear trying to drill out the existing slot for the bump stop might be a bugger to do.. This is exactly how mine looks.(From another members post).. https://i.imgur.com/F4jUyv7.jpg height=440 width=640 Spray lube and a square shank screwdriver or pry bar will remove the stock pads the slot is wide enough to bolt in taller pads. If the pad you choose is oblong, you may want to use a counter rotation pin or bolt in the slot to keep it aligned.

RE: Your next outing??

This weekend we are dry camping at a casino to take in the evening entertainment. Our next trip will be also be at a casino but with full hookups on a saltwater bay. There is a small town to visit and views are great.

RE: Which is taller?

I thought about a deck with wheel wells but then you need custom boxes under the wings instead of standard dimension ones like mine.
Bedlam 03/05/20 06:33am Truck Campers
RE: Which is taller?

Pickup beds are usually around 3' and flat beds are 3.5' due to no wheel wells.

RE: Single Slide Truck Lean

On some roads, it is not the camper leaning. The road has a tall crown down the center for proper water drainage making your truck and camper lean to the right. The Ram air suspension system is sealed and only has some presets for ride height. I am not sure if the pressure is equalized between bags with check valves or is allowed to freely shift, but there is no adjustment for left to right leveling.

RE: How do you get to your spare tire with the camper on?

I moved the spare to the front of our 2015 Ram 3500. This was accomplished by mounting a receiver hitch and receiver mounted tire carrier. The benefits are two fold: 1. The spare is easy to get to. 2. It effectively took 175lbs of the rear axle. That is a heavy wheel. My 18" aluminum rims with tires were under just under 100 lbs each and my 19.5's on aluminum were just over 125 lbs.

RE: How do you get to your spare tire with the camper on?

With a 28" SuperTruss, I was still able to reach the spare using the crank and extension that came with my Ford without any modifications. My Ram carries the spare on top of a 42" SuperTruss and is secured by four bolts. I found once the tire is dropped to the ground, it is easier to pull the truck forward rather than trying to reach underneath and drag the tire out. I also carry a heavier bottle jack that has no trouble lifting the truck with the the camper loaded.
