RE: Dometic fridge not working

Is your panel having control lights? When they don't come on and the you have 12V on board fuse, the board is bad.

RE: Why diesel trucks?

jim is just trying to make excuse for his opinion. I've been to Montana and Kalispell is beautiful area, but you don't see 3-lines of freeways with bumper to bumper weekend traffic. I did not count gas stations in Vegas, but it has to be about 500 of them. How do you compare that to your local area? Point is that when driving with TC, most users will fill up at popular destinations. So as of today, diesel in Vegas is over 10% cheaper than regural. Florida is about the same Texas coast diesel 20 cents more. So with diesel burning 20-30% less than gasoline, you will save quite a lot of money even with today's prices. I will only watch the difference changing when summer arrives.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

In the new rig text is converted to audio, and I can listen to it, it also has voice to text function, have not used yet as I would want to totally understand the function, and if it was very simple to use. In my 2017 F350 text to voice function doesn't work at speeds above 7 (?) mph. Just like navigation entry doesn't allow for keying the address while in motion. Voice recognition would if it could recognize whole address without error. If you see F350 with a guy arguing with himself, that would be me trying to enter the address. Coming back to exiting 45 mph highway into business driveway - it is a skill, but not using blinkers doesn't help at all.

RE: Why diesel trucks?

That's probably becouse in your area diesel is still used for house heating. I started swimming pool season 3 weeks ago. Beside, I think more people from Montana drive their TC to Las Vegas, than Las Vegas residents taking vacations in Montana

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

People at the office texted him and, even though he was on camera, he commented how surprisingly difficult it was to not pick-up the device. That behavior goes far beyond driving. My wife loves to spend long hr on the phone, when for me most of the calls are 3 minutes. That said, when phone rings at home, unless I am close to 1, I let the machine take care about it. Most of the calls are solicitors anyway. My wife on other hand will drop whatever she has in her hands, or leave hot dinner on the table to run to the phone before machine answers.

RE: Why diesel trucks?

I think now is good time to evaluate the question. https://cimg8.ibsrv.net/gimg/www.mbworld.org-vbulletin/277x169/diesel_price_april_473a270c7523f0f943072fbd4dc4b633ff729aca.jpg width=400

RE: Any reason to unload when not using TC?

Tires will develop some flat spots even with truck only weight, but don't think that is big issue with pickup. I used to own convertible roadster and driven every few weeks it was always annoying for few miles before flat spots exercise. But some members post that leaving camper on truck in open area, dirt clog the drain holes and rain/snow water puddle under the camper, rotting the floor for spring time.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

Today, 90% of the people on the road don't take driving seriously. A vehicle, any vehicle (or RV) is a lethal weapon, just like a firearm and like a firearm, vehicles and driving them needs to be taken seriously. Don't know how many times I've seen people yacking on a cell phone, reading a book, putting on makeup and even playing with themselves, all while driving down the road... Amazing, amazing stupidity. When I agree with the statement, once again I post that the situation on roads is result of law enforcement period. I can bring thousands of samples about "nuts behind the wheel" Every day I drive 6-lanes street with 45 mph speed limit. Occasionally somebody makes a turn into McDonald, or other place along. Do you think they have to make positive stop in heavy 45 mph traffic to turn into wide driveway?

RE: Any reason to unload when not using TC?

Well, I have been looking at Bigfoot. 12 steps "highway to heaven" and not possible to enter with slides in is another way of poor build.

RE: Any reason to unload when not using TC?

So it was poorly constructed and rotted out. That stinks. What does it have to do with the OP's query? That part did not rotten. It sag simply becouse the poor construction was sitting for long periods without jacks support. All campers are poorly constructed IMHO and prone to the same issue.

RE: Low Flow Water Pump for Truck Camper

Try to understand hydro-mechanics behind water pump. All TC water pumps have pressure switch and since you use it for small faucet only, it is the pressure, not the flow that makes the splash and 50 psi will be more prone to splashing than 35 psi. The $29 Seaflo has decent reviews, so sure sounds like good choice. They don't list weight, but should be lighter than high-capacity pump as well. Add that lower pressure = less noise to pump.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

... Someone posted how easy it is to get a drivers license in the US, this is a MAJOR part of the problem. We have too many drivers out their that can barely handle just driving! .....! Initial education is just that - initial. It is law enforcement that makes situation on roads what it is. Few years back my California friends rented car in Berlin and took it on autobahn. Took them 20 minutes to get pulled over ... for blocking left lane.. Poor initial education was good excuse for 20 minutes and they had to learn proper driving fast.

RE: Any reason to unload when not using TC?

When I was rebuilding front end on my Fleetwood, I noticed that camper sides sag good distance over the years, what not only show on bed sides clearance, but also cabover was touching truck roof lights. Now I keep my camper with most of the weight on jacks and only some on wood blocks supporting front of the floor. This was not becasue the camper jacks weren't down, it's becasue the camper was dilapidated. If the camper couldn't support its own static weight sitting in the truck bed then running the jacks down was a stop gap for a camper in poor condition. Not something that not all would need to be done. The camper in question had aluminium skeleton, but there was no aluminium on front wall. The frame T, where front sides had main support had 3/4 x 1.5" wood stick for horizontal support. Even it was reinforced with plywood on both sides, not much for about 1500 lb static load it was carrying. Add ties tension and all additional load. Seem all campers are build this way. Wood has good load rating when dry, but leave it under the load in wet weather and with time it will sag and sag and sag.

RE: I bet glider pickups would sell!

Didn't we already figure out the future is electric? I am not environmental freak, but on practical site the truck is already forbidden from driving in California. About 8 states already follow CA smog laws and the number keeps growing. When they will follow with same restrictions? Right now I own 3 vehicles with DPF and DEF. It is additional maintenance issues (with potential for high expenses) but similar my android cost way more than old dial-phone. Would I drop convenience of android for scanning the cars, operating light systems in my house and checking gate camera only to gain more reliability? Heck no. Are there states that will not allow me to drive my truck into because it is a pre emission truck what gives there it adheres to all the emissions the were out the year the truck was new are they telling you that you have to buy a new truck????? I think all RV are exempt from those laws, but lot of TC owners have commercial registration on their truck and that is where things get tricky.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

Comparing to Sweden, who doesn't have much freeways and highways covered with snow for several months each year is not what I had in mind. Would you study the article, in lot of countries you can loose your DL for driving with cellphone to you ear. Not really applicable here. What I was trying to get to is "natural selection" as I call it. US with wide freeways and low speed limits, naturally calls for doing everything else while driving from simple boredom. It is perspective loop, but IMHO US speed laws encourage drivers to break attention laws. Now try to think why European cars lack cup holders? I’ve driven the autobahn, and there IS a cultural difference as well - unlike America, getting a DL in Germany requires REAL study, understanding and mental preparation, and unlike the ‘slam-dunk’ at American DMV’s, is of no minor feat...In my view, no direct comparison is plausible... Ain't that sad? Most European street lights have left turn light coming for 10 seconds. In that time European drivers can push 6-8 cars via busy intersection. Try to time US intersection how many vehicles will move in 10 seconds. So once again - IMHO it is slow driving practice who encourage drivers to do all other things.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

Having European roots, I can't leave it without another perspective. Why you don't see too many European drivers talking on phones while driving? Simple answer. When most of the Europe have 130 kph =80 mph speed limits, some countries don't have limits at all. So can you imagine a driver doing 150 mph and with phone to his ear? Try ? That is if government enforced governors allows you. My new truck is having 90 mpg governor, what it is reaching at about 1/2 scale of tachometer.

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

I'm curious, what good do dash/rear cams do in an accident? Would the cops use them to see who's at fault? Would the insurance companies do anything different if they had video? I don't know so I'm asking.... Cops don't investigate accidents to start with. They just make the report of what they see and leave rest for insurance. When you have camera, you don't want to mention that you have it. Let the other party lie their lungs off and them confront them with video evidence. On other forum member had a video where on big parking lot, guy in front of him went on other side of driveway, than changed his mind and backed up without looking, crushing front of member car. So the guy has no insurance, no registration and damage to his rear. How do you think he would testify in court with no video?

RE: Saga of Cell Phone Accident...

... You do not want your local law enforcement spending their time taking accident reports, chasing barking dog complaints or ticketing jay walkers. Checking cell phone records? This isn't television and OP's accident was surely not a fatality or serious anything. "It could have been" doesn't qualify..... Well, all within reasons. Let's do reality check? ;) My California house was in quiet neighborhood. City of 17,000 statistically had 1 homicide per decade. So the 2 officers per shift were very bored and any solicitor would get pulled from the street within minutes. Over the years - happen twice that somebody put their trash into our garbage can standing at the curb. I reported it both times, both times dept send officer to investigate, both times they could find name of the offenders on their letters (talk about dumb criminals) and both time they made the offenders to come back to clean, while officer was watching them doing so. What's wrong with that?
