RE: Is side awning worth it?

I use my side awning from time to time depending on length of stay and if I feel like messing with it. If cost isn't a consideration, I would get yourself one and for the back too. Height I don't consider a problem. Mine came with a rod to reach up and pull down a cord. Simple operation.

RE: Truck tilting?

I have 2" lower on the driver side. After visual inspection of the leaf springs, I could see the front of the left rear spring near the shackle was bent. Will be replacing with heavier springs.

RE: How primitive of terrain are you comfortable traversing?

I’ve been over many of the forest service roads in Blewett Pass up to Loup Loup with mine. I think that for the most part, you need to slow down. Most of the roads that are wide enough for a camper should be fine. I have to get that way and check it out more. I've spent a fair amount of time in the Gifford Pinchot around MT Adams and St. Helens. Some time around Winthrop to Conconully and Cle Elum to Alpine Lakes.

RE: charging of 2 camper batteries with truck alternator?

I am currently doing what you are asking with great success and no troubles whatsoever the last 8 years. My Truck Alternator to Truck Camper SETUP I have two AGM group 31 batteries in the TC and I recommend having an AGM starting battery in the truck for better electrical matching. I have a 160 amp output alternator. I imagine the TC batteries add as much as 22 amps demand to the charge system when discharged overnight say 12.3 volts and very little demand once fully charged through the 4 gauge wire direct off the alternator and controlled by a constant duty solenoid. Works great, charges fast, Trouble free, have never blown the 30 amp inline fuse. Go for it, don't hesitate.

RE: VIDEO: Walupt Lake Fishing ~ Day 1 ~ Setup.

We're doing one more trip across the mountains in October before the snow comes for the same reason. We will stay in the lower elevations until Spring unless I make some ski trips this winter. Most likely we will spend New Year's on the western coastline and just need to figure how far south we will go... Oktoberfest Plans?

RE: Where did Mooney go?

I always remembered this post by Mooney about his 2 cylinder water cooled generator. What a power plant... Mooney's generator.

RE: VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

I watched this twice and seen nothing fun other than two guys riding without helmets ??????? Geeze those things are horribly loud and obnoxious. We had a bunch of people in ATVs zoom through our formerly peaceful campsite and throw up a lot of dust recently. I have a very dim view of ATVers after that experience. Please don’t paint all of us ORV enthusiasts with the same brush. There are a lot of us who follow the rules, care for the environment as well as care for our neighbours. There will always be people that don’t follow rules, regulations, care about the environment or their neighbours, it doesn’t matter the type of activity or the location. Soup. The RZR 1000 is not really loud. It has a muffler, spark arrester, The water cooled engine is in an engine compartment, There is a large skid plate on the underside. It is not manufactured to be loud. Others may not be built as such or modified to be loud. Where we were riding is far from any camping or people. the noise in the video is from wind, rough road, and engine noise combining to make a loud sound which is not much different than your truck or jeep driving dirt roads. Sure, there are those who are not respectful of others but most people will do the right thing for the circumstance.

RE: VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

We use our buggies any opportunity we can. With full unrestricted plates, we get to go where many UTV’s cannot. This time, the trailer is hauling our Sonic... Which one's the Sonic? https://www.bertsmegamall.com/fckimages/jlaudio-save.jpg

I watched this twice and seen nothing fun other than two guys riding without helmets ??????? Thanks for the feedback. I'll make a note of that. Riding an ATV through the forest is not fun!

VIDEO: Funnest Thing I've Done In A While - RZR 1000 Ride

Riding the forest roads in a Polaris RZR 1000. Riding the forest roads in a Polaris RZR 1000 up to a retired Observatory on the Manastash Ridge. It is amazing how this ATV can eat the road like nothing I've ridden in before. It was handy to find cell service up there miles from anywhere after days of being camped with no connection to the outside. Which is the way it's supposed to be. Need an ATV? The Polaris RZR is Amazing! Enjoy the ride, see some scenery.

Truck Camper Fridge Vent Cover Replacement _ Bonus @ 11:00

Truck Camper Fridge Vent Cover Replacement _ Bonus @ 11:00 Minutes A help video showing how to replace an old cracked discolored fridge outside access vent panel. The new panel and frame are made from a more flexible plastic. The new white cover panel looks much nicer. I had to do some simple modification to make the new panel frame fit the existing opening using a multitool saw. I just used DICOR lap sealant to seal the frame edges applying a thick bead around the perimeter of the cover, then setting it in place, screwing it in, then cleaning off the excess caulk with a finger, trowel, and cleaning up the remaining with paper towels and paint thinner. Looks much better. At 11:00 minutes is bonus footage that gives a clue for the next possibly expansive project. Enjoy and take care...

RE: The new S&S and Red Repair/Restore/Upgrade Thread..part II

We're planning on removing the oven and replace it with just a cook top since we haven't used the oven ever. That would free up some room for the second battery along with a little weight. Doing the research on the mod now...will be doing ALOT of looking and measuring tomorrow. I couldn't do without my oven. I've done prime rib, chicken, bread, cake, pie, to name a few in the oven. Makes good storage for cooking items too... Don't forget the pizza. Scratch built and store bought...

VIDEO: The Messy Campsite!

VIDEO: The Messy Campsite! We were scoping out potential future campsites and found one that had great promise. Next to the river, flat, sizable open space. Things were looking good. Upon closer inspection, prior abuse by other campers became more and more apparent. Manageable amounts of burnable garbage left behind wasn't much more than an annoyance. The real problem was the amount of toilet paper to be seen laying on the ground the area randomly spaced throughout the underbrush. There are better ways to deal with human waste such as the 5 gallon bucket system featured in the video. This campsite is off my list for now.
