RE: New Shock Time

I changed out my OEM shocks at 35,000 miles for Bilstein 4600's, WOW what an improvement. Just like good tires, you'll instantly feel the difference. Much less sway and porpoise effect while on the road. Like everything in life, there is no "best" only what works the best for you.

RE: NorCold Fridge - How Sensitive to Being Unlevel?

The best way I have found to stay level is to park level. I use a leveling app on my phone and set it on the console in the truck. Works like a champ. Exactly what I do, then it's much easier to fine tune with leveling blocks if needed.

RE: What TC truly sleeps 4 adults ?

I know this is a non-slide model, but Wolf Creek 850's have a 79" long dinette bed. I'm 6'3" 250 and have plenty of extra room. It wouldn't be as wide as others, but the length is there! https://i.imgur.com/8TI6sozl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lBjvclHl.jpg

RE: What's your favorite camp chair?

These have a 3 yr warranty when purchased from their online store and no tax, no shipping. The reviews are stellar especially regarding comfort. Some of the ones others mentioned seem to have nagging quality issues which was a no go for me. We read many reviews and looked at other camping websites and took a shot at them. We were impressed the moment we sat in one, I'm a big guy and the chair just fit great, no slouching, no digging into our legs, firm support, nice arm rests, and quality built. The angle on your back is the best part when compared to any other camp chair!

RE: What's your favorite camp chair?

RE: Location Of Arctic Fox 805 Jack board

My 2012 811 had the main controller under the sink and an extension panel in the left rear quarter panel. Same on my 2014 Wolf Creek 850, main controller under the sink, and remote in the left rear corner by the drain valves.

RE: Mild earthquake shakes TC

We had a 7.1 that seemed to shake forever a year and a half ago. Mass damage to homes/businesses roads severely damaged, and major highway bridges closed due to damage. We came home to a house that had emptied most of the kitchen cabinets, wall decorations on the floor, garage shelf contents strewn all over the garage floor, no power for a long time (substation and switch stations damaged), and undrinkable well water. This all happened on a November 30th so we had to repair our wood stove chimney and fire up the woodstove to keep the house from freezing, used what bottled water we had left from the camper, and fired up the Honda generator from the camper for a little power. If it wasn't for the woodstove, our Wolf Creek would have become home! You sure learn what's really important in times like that.

RE: Battery time. 6V?

My theory on rv batteries is get the cheap ones and don't worry about them. Then I can spend my vacation time enjoying the trip, and not fretting about preserving several hundred dollars worth of batteries. The 6 volt deep cycles from sams club were about $75-80 each last time. They were used and abused and 3 years old in my Arctic Fox when I sold it and still working fine. I agree! I bought inexpensive 6v batteries (Duracell Ultra) from my local Batteries Plus for $90 each 6 years ago and have yet to see a reason to replace them. I almost exclusively boondock camp so they get used often and last much longer than most give credit for.

2020 Milepost

The 2020 Milepost will be released this month (23 March, 2020). I'm pretty sure the roads are all the same but some of the businesses along the way have changed. We are planning a trip from AK to Idaho, I just need my darling navigator wife to learn how to read the Milepost in reverse so we can enjoy the sights and stops along the way.

RE: A clothing packing suggestion for Arctic Fox campers

Just thought I would mention a solution to clothes packing for those of you that have Arctic Fox campers. We use these Zip Loc Totes: Zip Loc Flexible Totes to carry and store our clothes. Two of them, if not overpacked, fit nicely in each side cubby of the camper by the bed. Pack them in the house, carry them out to the camper, unzip and roll up the cover and stuff them in the cubby. Which cubby? The front wardrobe by your head, the long flat one in the middle, or the rear wardrobe at the foot of the bed?

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

Update - for those considering the lower StableLoads, they do now make a stainless version, for the Superduty.  However after speaking with various people about StableLoads…. I spoke with a trusted expert, and he said he had heard of more than one situation that people with campers who were using the lower StableLoads who *broke a spring* when using the lower StableLoads.  He said they can also can sometimes make noise, so he recommended against the lower StableLoads. I have NEVER heard of a broken spring due to a lower Stable Load, dude must be trying to sell you an expensive alternative. I can honestly say I've never heard mine make noise either, I guess when not in use they could possible rattle but I've never heard it.

RE: Anyone with the Ford 6.2 Carrying TC

I just bought a 2020 Ford 4x4, 6.2 gasser, long bed, SRW, 3.73. Put a Northstar 850SC on it. I was not sure what kind of MPG I would get but I am surprised it's so low. Only 1,500 miles on the truck, but looks like MPG with camper is about 11.3 or so. That's great mileage with a gas engine and loaded with your camper. Are you in the flat lands?

RE: Alaska Highway Campgrounds

The most popular camping time for both Americans and Canadians is July 1st and 4th week for Independence Day celebrations, so many campgrounds are full everywhere. The absolute worst place to camp on the 4th is anywhere near Seward AK, as they have the Mountain Marathon that day and it's a huge drunkfest/party.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

My WC850 scaled 3,200lbs fully loaded and ready to camp.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

I have a WC850 on my 2500 GMC, the fully loaded wet weight including all of our camping gear is 3,200lbs. Do you have air bags or any other upgrades to your truck? After using it completely stock a few weekends, I added lower Stable Loads. They are incredible, keep the truck level and prevent side to side sway by including the overload spring into the equation all the time. I also tow a 16' trailer with a SXS on it so I added Timbrens later. The Timbrens are just above the axle most times and just assist when I load up the front of the trailer with a row a gas cans and firewood. No need for airbags with a non-slide camper and I don't want the sway/bounce of bags with all of Alaska's curvy mountain roads. A heavy spring is better for stability, that is why Super Springs, Stable Loads, and Sway Bars are preferred.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

Would a Northwood Wolf Creek 850 work well? Dry weight is right at 2000 lbs. I have a WC850 on my 2500 GMC, the fully loaded wet weight including all of our camping gear is 3,200lbs.

RE: propane tanks

Our local hardware store has been offering $1.00 off a gallon on propane (now $2.15 gal) due to our extreme cold temperatures. Other places quit filling because it is too cold. We have been in the negatives for weeks now (I've seen -20 every day this week on my drive into work and back home)and the deal is, you have to ask for which of the two guys who own the shop have to make the trek across the lot and stand there while filling your tanks. Their supplier has had to refill the bulk tank every day. Good times!

RE: Winter sets in

Currently 40 degrees and rain in the forecast for the next 2 days, single digit temps by the weekend. So in one week we go from 10" of beautiful new snow, to rain, to single digits and solid ice on the side roads. South Central Alaska winters aren't what it was 10 years ago.

RE: Winter sets in

Trouble is, it means that grass has to be mowed year round. I had to run my snow blower twice today to clear the snow!
