RE: Fridge won't fit

I was able to find a brand new scratch/dent Dometic 2551 for almost the same price as just the cooling unit. Picked it up in Elkhart this weekend along with the roll of Filon. The original was the Dometic 2554 is 3-way, the 2551 is only 2-way. We only have room on the roof for 100w of solar, which is about 5 a/h, the fridge draws 15 a/h running on 12v, so if we stop for lunch and turn the truck off, I'd need to switch the fridge to gas anyways to keep the battery from going dead. Will be pulling the slide this week, stay tuned, The flat area of the roof is not the only place for a panel. On the slight slope of the nose on either side of the hatch on the cabover I was easily able to mount 2 100 watt panels on my 2008 Lance 1055

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

My friends have a 2020 F350 4x4 extended cab with camper package with their new Lance 1062 they nave 1000s of mile on it with no mods and they are towing a 5000 pound horse trailer. Drive your rig first then decide if you need to mod it

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

I could go stock when not hauling my horses but the rig rides better with upper and lower stable loads than it did stock

RE: Generator wattage

Run the fridge on DC? Run it on propane and that 1000 should easily handle everything you described. A 2200 should run the AC. I would never run my fridge on anything besides propane when camped unless I was hooked up to a shoreline in a campground.

RE: 19.5s again ... new recommendations?

How did the Hankook tires do for you? I run the Cooper RM253 tires all around on mine. They seem fine to me but I don't have a lot of miles on them. Ran the same tire on my SRW worked great in all conditions. My buddy now has that truck and tire set up under his Lance 950. He has had it in mud, dirt, snow, stream crossings, and highway with no complaints. the tires wear really well.

RE: Rear View Camera

I have a tadibrothers wireless camera setup . the monitor sits on the dash I have one camera above the rear door of the camper and the second inside the horse trailer so that we can watch the horse while in transit. I should have gotten a 3 camera system and put the third on the back of the trailer for backing and for lane changes in traffic.

RE: Opinion on these tie-downs?

Happijack Quickloads. I had a set. royal pain to adjust. You need two open end wrenches to adjust and snug the rods everytime you reload the camper onto the truck. Went to Torklift Fastguns and never looked back

RE: New Shock Time

When your shocks wear out its a gradual thing until one day you find your vehicle bouncing for a half a mile after hitting an overpass. At that point any new shock is going to be an improvement. I don't understand how shocks will help after you've done the canopener thing. Bouncing I think is the least of your worries. I believe he is refering to the poor transitions that most overpasses have at each end due to settlement at the abutments.

You mean Jacksonhole right?

RE: Family National Parks Road Trip

I did the drive from Reno to Flagg in Grand Teton in one long day 5am to midnight. Remember that the speed limit from sw of Jackson to the park is not at freeway speeds and in the park it is 35 this will add hours to your planned drive time

RE: 19.5's for Ram SRW

Last I heard Rickson was out of Business. Even if they aren't good luck getting a set out of them in under 9 months if you are lucky. Vision Heavy Haulers are a 2-4 day lead time

RE: Best Truck Camper AGM battery?

28* that's not cold camping This is on the Chilly side but still not really cold, this was either Missouri or Nebraska last fall and my uninsulated AGMs worked just fine https://scontent-dfw5-2.xx.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/78593933_3108419989174990_6277669726210490368_o.jpg?_nc_cat=107&_nc_sid=e007fa&_nc_ohc=0h_3M2W5rmMAX8J3TzC&_nc_ht=scontent-dfw5-2.xx&oh=93876c2c9dfd5788d2f510e207747361&oe=5ED79F38 width=600

RE: Best Truck Camper AGM battery?

AGM batteries are design for working upside down, or in applications where extreme shaking happens. What you do with your camper to require something like that? It lets you put a battery into a tight space where adding or checking water would be a royal PITA. Mine are crammed in at angle and it was install and forget. No watering systems or any other thing to bother with ever. It's a "Keep it simple stupid", solution just buy a battery watering system. I got mine off amazon (Canada)for 50 bucks. makes it easy as heck to top off water, I am even going to order a 4 GC set up for my 5th wheel now for the pure convenience. Steve you are still thinking of the batteries in a vertical orientation, AGMs can be stacked on their sides or tilted and need zero attention

RE: Best Truck Camper AGM battery?

Lifeline AGM. I pulled out that battery slide out tray and in that freed up space I was able to fit two group 31s. My Lifelines are going strong after 9 nears in the TC
