Pulled off the outer dually wheels. Taking them to the shop for new rubber before we take off on a 5000 mile trip in two weeks (already put new tires on the inners)

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.

RE: Prepping for below freezing temps and snow.

Nov 3rd we will be driving the Truck and Lance cross country towing our horse in a trailer from near San Francisco to Lexington KY on I80 until Iowa then dropping down to Lexington. We will be traveling wet, the camper fully insulated and on below freezing days have the furnace on. Stops for the night in Salt Lake City, Ogallala NE, St Peters MO. We will spend a week at the Kentucky horse park competing then do the trip in reverse about 5000 miles total. After that Its snow camping time in the Sierras and Cascades Sounds like such an awesome trip. I was raised in Salt Lake City and just live about 200 miles south. we did it in 2019 and Ruth won the Intermediate 1 Freestyle championship If you are on Facebook here are the Photos from that trip https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.3108450592505263&type=3

RE: Extended warranty experiences

In all the purchases I have made since my first vehicle in 1975 I have never purchased an extended warranty. I have never regretted not doing so. Its a scam IMHO. I will not be buying one in the future either

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Loaded up Ruth's Dressage equipment and my medical gear, loaded the fridge topped off the water and propane. Tomorrow we head out to the California Dressage Society and United States Dressage Federation Region 7 Championships at Murietta Equestrian Center near Sacramento. She is competing at Grand Prix and I am the Medic for the five day event.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Repaired the Trailer hitch (bolt failure from a hard hit at a bridge/ pavement transition). Installed new 1/2" Grade 8 bolts nuts and washers on an original Torklift Magnum Super hitch. My bad for not regularly checking on bolt torque. Now loading up gear and other stuff to head out to the Region 7 and CDS Dressage Championship on Tuesday out by Sacramento. My wife is one of the competitors and I was hired to be the onsite Medic

RE: Solar install question

I did the DIY/ Camper was pre wired Parts for 2 100 watt panels mounts wiring and controller was under $400. Time to install and have it up and running was under 3 hours with a buddy helping me get the panels up onto the roof.

RE: Battery Question

Like the others have said: It all depends on your need I have minmal needs so 2 group 31 AGMs (Lifeline) and 200 watts of solar keeps me going. I don't watch TV or use the Microwave. In the summer if its really hot I will use my Honda 2000 to run the AC. All my lights are LED and at most I run a 200 watt inverter to charge my Laptop. The main camper drain is the fridge circuit board on the Fridge and in winter the furnace and when its really hot or cold out I cover the doors windows and vents with reflectix and foam and have fiberglass batts behind the external hatches to maximize my thermal insulation from the outside environment. I camp year round in all sorts of temps from near zero F up to above 115F.

RE: Help, 2003 Arctic Fox fridge isn’t staying cool when on DC

for about $500 you can upgrade the Cooling unit to one of the Amish Built ones. My old cooling unit failed and I installed a new Amish one about 2 weeks ago. So far the performance of the new unit is substantially better on AC, DC and Propane. At 100F outside the Fridge stayed at 35 and the Freezer kept the Ice Cream frozen solid. I had it on DC while driving and Propane while dry camping https://rvcoolingunit.com/Norcold-Cooling-Units-remanufactured-C4434.aspx

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

There are trips I take only for the purpose of getting the horse from one competition to another such as San Francisco Bay are to Lexington Kentucky. Thats 2500 miles. The name of the game is to minimize the hours that the horse spends traveling so that we can maximize the total number of rest days before the competition to let the horse recover and get used to the new surroundings. Thats a 4 day drive followed by 5 recovery days and four days of competition then 4 days back home. After that the horse gets at least a week of nothing but hand walking. So yeah I am doing 75-80 across Nevada, Utah, Wyoming and Nebraska...Fuel costs are not important. Not letting the fuel gauge drop below 1/4 tank is.

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

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

not today, but last Friday I finished the job of pulling the Norcold 641.3 out of the cabinet. Removing the dead cooling unit and installing a remanufactured Amish built cooling unit reinstalling the fridge in the cabinet connecting everything cooling it down on AC then hitting the road for the weekend running on DC the spending two days on propane dry camping. The refrigerator section stayed at 35F even as the outside temps hit 100F Freezer stayed at 14F. After $100 rebate for returning the core (prepaid) my total cost was $514.00 USD. beats the snot out of buying a new fridge. Thank you. I'm saving this one. here is the link to where I purchased the cooling unit from https://rvcoolingunit.com/641-Norcold-Cooling-Unit-Norcold-640-P12778.aspx
