RE: It’s been a good run

Since it's kinda on topic, what is it that makes the 6v GC batt's better then 12v ones? Golf cart batteries have thicker plates. Bingo! 6 volt batteries have thicker plates and are designed for large loads and many recharge cycles.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

He should definitely be in Anchorage by now if all went well since his last post. He did the leg work ahead of time, he should be good no matter what pops up.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Thank you all! We made it to Liard Lodge safely last night. Today we trek to Whitehorse. I have a question. Yesterday I was getting fuel at an ESSO station and realized I pumped 5 gal of LSD into my truck before I stopped it. I had about a half a tank already in the truck before accidently adding the the LSD and ended up going to another station that offered ULSD to finish filling it up. Will this LSD hurt anything? It seems that most places in the ALCAN offer only LSD, unless you're in a well established town/city. Sounds like your making pretty good time across CA. Be ready for the Yukon checkpoints later today, and your 24 hour timer to start. You'll be fine with the fuel your purchasing, Canadians drive the same vehicles using that fuel and your doing highway driving not stop and go city traffic. Make sure and fuel up in Beaver Creek, there isn't squat on the Alaska side of the border for a long ways, with Tok being the best bet for good fuel.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

The COVID-19 test should have gone into effect 3 Feb. That is the information I received from the Air Force. I already have tests scheduled for me and my family this Friday on Hill AFB. We get the results right away. Better safe than sorry. As for the pictures, we'll be taking lots of them! We did last time and can't wait to do it again. If you need any base assistance after Hill, there is one last Air Force Base in Great Falls Montana that has full services for military. I use them for draining tanks and refill, but you will probably be running empty in the cold weather. Not much for services north of Great Falls MT until Calgary and then Edmonton.

RE: New Ford 7.3 Gas

jefe 4x4 here. I have not been on here for a few years, but am on here to add to my extensive research for a talk I'm presenting at the Truck Camper Adventure Rally next week, and a subsequent article for the on-line magazine. Good to see you back Jefe, please stop in more often I miss your wisdom and advice from years of actual experience!

RE: Timbrens,airbags!

The trucking industry uses airbags. I think there is wisdom in following that lead. Not even close to being the same thing. However the bounce you see will be the same. Watch a semi trailer as it bounces up and down while going down the highway, who want's that?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I cleaned out the burner area on my refrigerator after noticing an off smell last fall when operating on propane. Hoping the black carbon chunks I blew out does the trick. Then moved on to the batteries (dual 6 volts) and pulled them out to check water level, added just a little to each cell and reinstalled. Lastly, replaced the rubber seals on my Rieco-Titan jack legs. One was missing and the other three were rotted out and just hanging on the bottom of the leg.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Get a piece of cardboard, sized to cover the rad. Slip it in between the rad and the grille when you notice your heater not keeping the cab warm. Keep an eye on the engine temps, and the exterior temps. Remove as needed. This works great! You can even spray paint it black if you want to hide it.

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Good to hear you'll be taking the TT with you, it'll get tons of use up there. Free camping all over the state, I only paid for beach spots in Seward and Homer. Safe travels!

RE: It’s been a good run

So if it ain’t broke do I just buy the same set or go with AGM’s as it is a pain the check the water levels and can possibly move them Inside etc. Any ideas on the best deals out there? Thnx in advance Nolan Hi Nolan, you scared me with your thread title, I thought you sold your Wolf Creek. My 6v Duracell Ultra wet cells in my WC850 are the same age as your batteries, I'm thinking of going with AGM next just for the fact that checking water levels is such a chore. My batteries are tall and just fit in the compartment and making the connections is tuff. My battery box seemed to be about 1/4" short in depth for larger 12v batteries so I went with 6v to get more amp hours. I'm thinking AGM is the way to go.

As soon as I can figure out how to add pictures here I’ll do that! It looks like the forums photo posting site domain has been suspended. It's back up! Yeah! Photo Posting Link

RE: New Truck or New Engine

Crate motors from the manufacturer can be around the same price, but come with with full warrantees and are all new. Much less labor involved so the cost evens out.

RE: New F350 Tremor with a SB Camper

Off road suspension means SOFT, it is designed to articulate and float over the whoopties, go with a truck designed for heavy loads instead. Look at the payload of a Ford Raptor, it isn't designed to carry much of anything but occupants, but the soft suspension will soak up the bumps in off-road conditions.

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

Thanks Morsno. They do say frame mounted, but they go to the bed wall and floor. Do you take your rig off road at all? That is my main concern, as we love to get into some of the more remote spots. Is that an 850? This is what I am looking to buy... The front brackets are bolted to the front of the box and through the bed floor and frame with long bolts. They are NOT just into the sheet metal box. I lived in Alaska the past 8 years and went all over the state boondock camping. I've been thru ditches and gravel pits just about every trip with my WC850 short bed. I just made the trip down the Alcan highway to Idaho where we live now and they still look like new whereas Torklift brackets would be rusted completely. Don't get me wrong, I love Torklift products, but the frame brackets do not provide good holding angles like Happijacs do and they rust up from all the road rash under the truck body.

RE: Happijac rear bumper mounts

I've been using the HappiJac frame mount tie down anchor points for eight years on my '12 GMC Sierra, the rear bumper is as good as new. There is a hidden bracket from the bumper to the frame that holds it in place contrary to popular belief that there is only a couple buttons in the bumper corners. If you look close I have Torklift Fastguns, I am equal opportunity camper customer! https://i.imgur.com/DvDCsbLl.jpg

RE: Travelling from Nevada to Alaska in the Middle of Winter

Do the Provinces and AK allow studded snow tires? Yes, Alaska does allow studded tires. Winter tires are almost a requirement in AK. I buy a second set of wheels and have them mounted on their own wheel so I could seasonally swap my tires at home, otherwise you wait in long lines during tire changeover season.

RE: Shopping for a camper...

Well I think I'm going to get one of the Wolf Creek 850s I looked at today. My GVWR is 11,500. My tare was 7,940. GAWR rear is 7,050 front is 5,600. They have one with an oven, kind of a must when the DW is along, and it comes in at 2,300 lbs dry. Interior height is 6'6'. They want 33,000 so I know they will take less. You guys think I should start at 28,000 and see their reaction? This will be a straight purchase. Nice choice! I have nothing but good things to say about my 2014 WC850 after 8 seasons of use (delivered Aug 2013). I've weighed mine a couple times and come in at 3,200lbs loaded and ready to camp. Love our oven too!
