RE: Back order shocks

Love my almost new Bilstein 4600's, just finished a 3,000 mile trip down the Alcan with them, no porpoising, bouncing, or jarring ride.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

Just finished a 3,000 mile trip down the Alcan Highway from Eagle River AK to southern Idaho. I had to go through the Canadian Customs travel restrictions proving why it was an essential trip and not make any unnecessary stops except to gas and sleeping in roadside pullouts (provincial campgrounds were closed to Americans).

RE: Repairing soft floor in my wolf creek

I have PDF copies of the entire WC850 frame drawings, here is a screenshot of the floor. I'm not seeing any cross bracing where your soft spot is. https://i.imgur.com/zlCBkzHl.jpg

RE: Aftermarket wheels

Avoid the tons of cheap cast wheels out there, they are junk when carrying weight, stick with a quality forged wheel. If you don't see a HD weight rating listed, assume its for a 1/2 ton or SUV.

RE: Repairing soft floor in my wolf creek

Install laminate flooring over the vinyl, that'll add strength.

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

I replaced my factory Michelin AT2's when they wore out with less than 30,000 miles with Cooper AT3 XLT's. For those that may not know current Cooper AT3's come in three different designs 4S designed for SUV's, LT, & XLT for heavy loads.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Spun it around on the driveway to raise the front higher than the rear to drain my fresh water tank, then spin back around to sanitize, and refill. I don't like to fill the tank with the front higher as it allows me to overfill the tank and then water is running out of the overflow every time I brake.

RE: Taping Window on Cab Over

I've made the trip a few times, the only time I destroyed a windshield was making the drive in the winter (November). The Yukon spreads crushed rock on the highway that is kicked up by passing vehicles and my front tires trough rocks forward and I drove into my own rocks. You'll be fine this time of year and there won't be much traffic. Report back and let me know how the road is, I'll be headed out the first week of September.

RE: Timbrens vs Stableloads

I have both, if I was to chose which one was the most beneficial it would be the lower Stable Loads. They reduce sway and help level out my truck. I later added the Timbrens for additional support while towing. Can you talk more about the difference with just the lower SL and then after adding the Timbrens? Thanks. Certainly. Instead of throwing a bunch of parts at my truck when I first picked up my camper, I tried things one at a time. I ran completely stock at first, noticed I wasn't sitting level and had top heavy sway. So I added lower Stable Loads which was supper easy with pre-drilled factory overload springs. They really helped level the truck out and drastically reduced the top heavy sway feeling. I almost always was pulling my 16' trailer with ATV's and then later on a much heavier SxS UTV. I decided to try adding Timbrens after increasing my trailer load. Timbrens weren't required/needed, but did help trailer bounce when driving on Alaska's frost heaved roads. I really feel that the lower Stable Loads were all I needed for better ride and control. That’s what I was hoping to hear. Thanks for the details. I will be going with lower SL’s. We don’t tow as much or as heavy as we used to so I am really just looking to handle the camper better than OE suspension. Thx again, Bill You're welcome, hopefully your springs are predrilled to save you a bunch of work. You'll appreciate the difference Stable Loads make.

RE: Third Brake Light?

It does seem odd that truck caps are required to have the third brake light, but slide-in truck campers do not... Truck caps are probably classified as a truck accessory, while truck campers are an RV/Cargo. Cargo can block rear windows and don't require 3rd brake lights.

RE: Arctic Fox air conditioning question

Most of AC have inner air filter, what most of the time is washable foam. I also am big fan of Formula 303 for protecting plastic and fiberglass parts, so spray top cover whenever I go there. Protectant 303 is great for UV protection and won't wash off in the first rain like Armorall will. 303 was recommended for my canoe also.

RE: Newbie

Many times the gray tank smells nastier than the black due to grease, soap scum, food/drink, etc. Clean it by filling it up with water and Dawn dish soap and drive around so it can slosh and clean the sidewalls, then drain and rinse again.

RE: Shock Absorbers

I installed Bilstein 4600's over the winter, very much improved ride and control over the stock shocks. I wish I would have upgraded earlier.

RE: Hooks on my counters

That is weird after looking at your pictures. Is the counter top lighter in color (like it looks in the pics) between the wall and the hooks like something may have been held in place like a long spice rack? The more I look, the more that I'd say just unscrew them and fill the holes with plastic filler and call it a day.

Can we see a pic of how they are arranged/placed please?

RE: Northern Lite 10-2 maiden voyage

The short run time out of the propane tank maybe because the tanks weren’t properly purged of air. My thought as well. I live in Alaska and use my furnace almost every night while camping, refer on propane, and water heater only on as necessary and go most of the summer on one 20lb tank.
