RE: Whazoo?

Yes, I blocked you in 2007 after you hurt my feelings over comments about my scrawny F350 DRW. ;)

RE: Whazoo?

Dave has his own blog and is on some facebook TC Groups. He got tired of dealing with certain trolls on this board. When I was TC mod, I couldn't use the "Block This Member" feature. After I went back to being a normal member and the "Block This Member" became available to me, I found that blocking just a hand full of trolls completely changed the atmosphere of this forum. Try it; it works.

We need to know the weights, but my guess is not. A 9 1/2 TC is probably in the neighborhood of 3000 lbs or more. Probably way over the tire/axle rating of your truck. In comparison, the highest rated 150s at most usually carry stripped down 6 1/2 TCs. Ditto.

RE: How fast do you drive with camper on? .

This thread makes me remember jPonder and his throttle stick. :) :) :)

RE: How fast do you drive with camper on? .

65 or so. Fuel mileage drops off exponentially above that.

RE: Glad I caught this

I had on of the lag bolts which held the jack bracket on our 1996 break. I managed to get the broken piece out. I replaced the lag bolt with lots of caulk and never had another issue.

RE: Mystery Damage to my truck. From the camper??

Looks to me like the DRW brackets are installed wrong. They should be parallel to the TC sides, but appear to angled toward the cab. Btw, it’s normal for the TC to move side to side some. You just have minimal clearance. When I originally had these brackets one was angled in and the other was flipped and more inline with the camper side. I needed all the clearance I could get so I flipped the one. This made the jack straight out when unloading giving me the most clearance and angled towards the cab when folded in. I actually made the 3" extensions to give me more clearance. Maybe now I could try the brackets reversed. Maybe. As Jim said, something ain't right. I've had two Lance campers and the jacks only had two positions, either straight out from the camper (loading/unloading) or straight forward (driving). They weren't angled in towards the truck cab were they were close enough to touch the cab when the camper rocks around while driving.

RE: TCM (Truck Camper Magazine)

I have definitely noticed a bias to their advertisers over the years. That is true for just about 100% of any information you read in any magazine about one of their advertisers. I don't believe any of it from any of them. I have canceled just about all of my magazine subscriptions except for a couple of 4x4 mags which are just as bad as the rest of them, but do have a few good trip/trail reports from time to time.

RV.net Truck Camper Forum for 20 Years

I just noticed that I will have been on the TC forum for 20 years this all on 10/29/2021. Anyone already reached the 20 year mark on the TC forum? Looks like Admin made 20 years on the TC forum last summer on 06/20/2020.

RE: Need Advice

If I had a half ton truck and wanted a truck camper, I would be looking at a pop up tc, not a hardside.
BradW 04/18/21 10:13am Truck Campers
RE: Need Advice

A couple of things to consider. The vast majority of hardside truck camper carrying SRW trucks you see on the road are over their gvwr. Also, many axles are rated based on the tire/wheel package they originaly came with. The same axle may have a higher gawr on a different truck. You never want to exceed the maximum payload rating of any tire.

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

years ago Flickr removed its photo link sharing buttons as they did not like hosting images on its servers that also did not generate advertisement $$$. They would really like people to actually go to THEIR site to view images stored there. I really don't like that.....I dont like that alot. Flickr removed a working tool that their PAYING customers were using to make their own life more profitable? Total BS in my opinion. I'm going to take another look at Imgur.

RE: new Ford 7.3 gas with 3.55 axle ratio, does it work?

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

Did you start an account on flickr or free trail? Flickr (which now owned by Smugmug, acquired financially troubled Flickr awhile back). They surprisingly 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. I'm trying the free Flickr and I think I can live with it. But after reading your post, I'm going to try Smugmug before comitting to Flickr Pro. Thanks, Brad

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

It's not the fastest way to do it, but I use the share photo button. Up pops a link. I select BBCode and the correct size. Then I copy the link, I post the link directly to the posting page. Then I cut off all before and after img. It took me a while to figure the "cut off all before and after img" part. The user should not have to do that. There should be a "Direct URL Link" option. I'm going to make that suggestion to Flickr. So, I will be upgrading to the $60/yr version of Flickr soon and see how it goes.
