RE: Frame Stiffing to reduce Porpoising?

The camper tags lie. take the rig with a normal camping load on board to a cat scale and weigh it. Stop guessing, get a real world number.

RE: NorCal Mini Truck Camper Rally - April 2023

Bummer on the dates. I'm the onsite Medic at a Horse show in Vacaville at that time.

RE: Crack in plastic shower wall Lance 1172

Places that do Fiberglass boat repairs can probably fix that right up for you and make it look good.

RE: Slide when mounted to truck

as a fellow horseman and owner of a truck camper with a slide and having trailered my horses coast to coast doing the Horse Hotel route. I don't take the camper off the truck and I don't disconnect the trailer. I off load the horses get them bedded down watered and fed and muck the trailer and fill the water buckets before stuff can freeze over. Then I pull to where ever I am spending the night at the facility (usually where they have a electrical hook up for me) Level the truck, extend the rear jacks to just touching , extend the slides and call it good. Make sure you have your Coggins and Horse health Certificate or they will not allow you to off load your horse for the night. and make sure you enter all weigh and ag stations with signage that all vehicles hauling livestock must enter. have proof of horse ownership with you too.

RE: Electric jacks manual crank

if you need to replace it. The Reico Titan is a 99% plug and play replacement. bolt holes are the same , motor speed is the same, capacity is the same. only thing you need to change is the plug receptacle on the camper.

RE: A new adventure for me.

Hopefully this job pays mega bank, because I can't imagine having to live in a truck camper on the job site. I do it for up to 16 days at a time. It's actually quite relaxing. No commute. Wake up, make coffee and breakfast, pull on the work clothes and you are there when you walk out the door. Lunch you have a full kitchen and private bathroom, end of the day you walk to the parking area go in the camper crack a beer, shower and have dinner and kick back.

RE: Back up camera recommendations?

I have the Tadibrothers digital wireless excellent image day or night. I have it set to always on so that I have no blind spots while driving in traffic. Set up is super easy. https://www.tadibrothers.com/products/7-monitor-with-wireless-mounted-rv-backup-camera?gclid=Cj0KCQiA1ZGcBhCoARIsAGQ0kkrDXMBKJ5eVJkVzsov8vh3aTy2DETSjbTTFl4O2g_S4cVOBgbuypVUaAl1JEALw_wcB

RE: For POP UP CAMPER owners - sealing seams on vinyl

I use this on my tents and tarps. It seals seams and stiches and stays flexible in cold and heat. Super easy to apply https://www.amazon.com/dp/B000XYQZD4/ref=emc_b_5_i?th=1

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Pulled the POS Galley hatch and fan that comes in a Lance 1062 and installed a 900 CFM 4 speed maxxfan in its place. Still wish they had installed a hood with a descent fan instead of a crappy roof vent original https://tinyurl.com/2p8h8vuj width=600 replacement https://tinyurl.com/5ed5e2am width=600 https://tinyurl.com/4fbupb9a width=600

RE: got a new camper

4th day out in the 1062., we are loving it. The only thing I really have to do is put a max air or fantastic fan over the range. The tiny oem bathroom vent fan just can not do the job when cooking.

RE: got a new camper

I took the opportunity of getting the new Lance to upgrade my rearview camera system from analog to digital and from 2 cameras to 3, both systems are wireless. the first 2 cameras stay the same one above the back door of the camper, the second inside the horse trailer to watch the horses as we travel. The new 3rd camera will be on the back of the horse trailer so no blind spots for lane changes and great for backing into tight spots. All cameras have milspec night vision.

RE: got a new camper

my understanding is that this camper had been sitting unused in storage since early 2000 and who knows when and where the last water fill came from.

RE: got a new camper

the fridge issue was a bad thermister. Holding at 35 with the new one in place. Lost water pressure. Another easy fix. Camper had been sitting for a while and they did not drain the fresh tank, Algae totally pugged the pre water pump strainer. cleaned that out Clorox bombed the water system, multiple times with a bunch of fill, add clorox, drive to shake the water everywhere let sit for a day drain, repeat, then do multiple fills and drain plus flush the hose lines to clear the clorox and gunk out of the system. https://tinyurl.com/2s43wc6p width=600 https://tinyurl.com/4944pe37 width=600

RE: Towing truck camper (expecting first experience today)

the only way your camper batteries can run your truck is if you pull them from the camper and put them in the engine compartment in place of your dead batteries.

RE: Towing truck camper (expecting first experience today)

RE: Host Everest Deadbolt Issue

easy solution take off the striker plate and file or dremel grind the hole in the plate larger on the edge that's catching and reinstall. I thought about that. And might do it. I’m just curious if this is unique to my camper, Host campers with the door on the side, or to campers in general. sloppy workmanship is endemic in the industry
