RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

Speaking of outside shower doors, I noticed on my new BF 10.4, the stove exhaust has no 'flap' under the outer cover. From the mesh screen next to the fan through the exhaust ducting is a clear shot.

RE: Chevy 6.0

I’ve pulled a gooseneck trailer loaded with a ford diesel van ambulance probably weighing 12k #s combined at 70 mph like it was nothing. This was a srw truck with 4.10 gear. The cutaways are derated to 320 hp but should still handle it well.

RE: ATC 5th Wheel MSRP vs Purchase Price

Been looking at those also. Looked at a bumper pull owned locally and they look to be pretty nice. Said he dealt with the dealer in Des Moines and was good to work with, see you are out west so that may be far. Hope you get a good deal, I'd like to have a good deal:).

RE: How to deal with grease on ball of receiver

Small vegetable can over the top, or stuff a coffee cup on it. Can fits over a 5th wheel ball real nice also.

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

The payload may be up there for a DRW, but inside the glove box is going to be a lower number for slide in truck camper. I looked at a GMC diesel DRW, might have been CC, and the slide in camper recommendation was around 3200#. I'm pretty sure their engineers take into account weight transfer and maybe other factors.

RE: GM pickup tailgate opening too narrow

A new GM and Bigfoot 10.4 has about 3/4" each side clearance:).

RE: Dexter Disc Bleeder Screws

I use the Earl's speed bleeders on a couple race cars. Next to sliced bread and butter they are the best thing to come along. There are different threads available so make sure to get the right ones. They do come with a thread sealer on them and over the years screwing in and out may wear this down enough to let air bypass when bleeding, but that time hasn't come yet. Also there is a special wrench to fit these, looks almost like a 6 pt box end wrench but it is cut out to slip over the tube or whatever. Like a flair wrench. Suggest using one of these. And when you close it, work it back and forth to seat the inner flange, shouldn't take much really to close it. Don't give it one big turn when you close it. Burnish it in.

RE: The verdict is in! DRW vs SRW....real world

Don't be afraid to run the 80 psi on the back. I'd bet the weight transition when you make turns puts quite a load on the outside tires. Not all trucks sit in the driveway or on the scales.

RE: How do you guys carry bicycles inside?

Look at Feedback sports website, they have some options. I use the RAKK for a couple bikes.

RE: Truck camper with trailer length

Some good advice everywhere. Thanks! You don’t want a narrower trailer. Its a real pain to back up a trailer you can’t see when it’s going straight. This brings up a good point, been there done that. Also if your mirrors can't extend out to see the sides of the trailer you are only looking at the front, hard to tell when the turn starts if you are trying for the straight back.

RE: Truck camper with trailer length

Cool. How is the maneuvering at the filling stations or campgrounds?

Truck camper with trailer length

Hello all. Re pulling a trailer, truck with camper bumper to rear hitch is 25'. Have a '04 vintage Haulmark 20' car hauler I can pull. Really only need something like 14' long and 7' wide for a scooter and couple bikes and misc. So with what I have total length is almost 50', pulling the trusty Haulmark. Could shorten that length 6-8' at the most and reduce the width about a foot to foot and a half at the trailer. Is it really worth the trouble to purchase a smaller trailer which I expect to cost more then what I paid for the '04 years ago and sell the '04 Haulmark. Anybody pull a 20'er and how did you like it? Thanks.

RE: Dually tire pressure?

Go to the inflation/load tables, somewhere it will say the lowest recommended pressure is listed in the table. Usually 30-40 psi. I got tired of looking at the tpms alert and took them down 12% below what is recommended or whatever is allowable without setting it off, and you can go to the dealers and they might alter the parameters. Big difference on ride.

RE: Engine torque

It's all about horsepower. Torque is a value used to compute horsepower. Horsepower is the amount of work in time. The formula for torque does not involve time. I personally live in time. Because of the nature of gasoline and diesel engines, they make torque at different RPM's, which effects where the horsepower is made. People think cause an engine is rolling over at 1600 rpm making max horsepower cause the torque curve starts at idle and stops at 2300 rpm it is a much stronger engine then another making the power at higher rpm where it's higher torque curve is located. Ain't so, just different rpm band, and different characteristics, and whatever people want to believe.

RE: 2019 Ram 3500 dually and loading a bigfoot 10.4 ...

Thanks Marcela. I need to look at my jacks again to refresh my thoughts on the fender clearance issue. I question my thoughts about extending the jacks out by adding something between the camper and the jack. Not sure about bending forces on a longer bolt, assuming using square tubing. Also if I have wood backing issues like you, it may go downhill. I guess I could just bolt the tubing to the camper and then bolt the jack to the other side of tubing. It's getting a bit convoluted when I could just be very very carefull when loading. I really didn't have wood backing issues, all the fasteners are just not used:). The brackets are plenty strong at the attachment point. Your deal is as you move the brackets out you also move them forward when they are collapsed in, interfering with the doors. Mine are close as is, I really need to put a 1/4" piece of plywood at the front.

RE: C or Super C with garage and no slide

The older models are what I'm looking for, pre slide out. I know anyone can make a new one for the price. I'll keep looking. I think I saw one earlier this year for sale and the seller mentioned they are rare, he was right but I didn't want one at that time:).
