RE: Flat towing with your truck camper

+1 for ready brake. That's what I use. I had an issue with my tow bar last year half way through a trip, and they overnighted me a replacement part under warranty coverage, free of charge. The hardest part was figuring out where I could have them ship the part to because I was literally in the middle of nowhere. I have my ready brake paired with the roadmaster baseplate, and the additional crossbar on the front of my jeep, which is needed for extra support when the jeep surges towards the truck when you step on the brake.

RE: Rieco Titan 2500# jack is binding.......

I can't help you specifically with rieco jacks. I have happijac jacks. One of mine seized up last year, and was popping fuses when I tried to move up or down. I basically did what this video did to take mine apart, clean up all the rust, oil the moving parts, etc. maybe this can get you in the right general direction? youtube

RE: Where can I find this RV?

how about a truck camper? some of them are huge with 1-3 slides. They are heavy, so most of the bigger ones really need a 450-550 truck to safely haul the weight. But they have tons of flexibility. much shorter overall length, Take off the camper and use the truck by itself. tow a jeep, boat, trailer, or nothing, etc. You can usually get further off the pavement than most other campers away from other campers. for ex: Eagle Cap Lance and Arctic fox also make large truck campers with different floor plans.

RE: Largest Lithium AMP Hour Battery - 2023 Arctic Fox 865

I got a 200 amp hour SOK battery, have been very happy with it. Eventually I'd like to get a second one but need to do some careful measuring first too.

RE: Guide for Narrowing Bigfoot Cabovers?

so first of all, completely agree with previous poster. Checking out the specs for a current bigfoot truck camper says that they weigh between 2061-2245 lbs dry weight. And a current model year toyota tundra has a payload capacity of 1,575 to 1,940 lbs. So a current model truck camper would be 500-700 lbs over the max payload for a toyota, before adding any water, clothes, food, gear, etc. A better solution would be a lightweight soft side popup truck camper like a Palomino. Those will weigh more in the 1500 lbs range. But to answer OP question, I found the page on the way back machine web archiver https://web.archive.org/web/20070407121302/http://duedall.fit.edu/yellow/gerry_chilibeck.htm Truck camper magazine has some good advice on matching a truck and camper together. https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/newbie-articles/match-truck-truck-camper/ In the details on that link, the guy also said he upgraded his F250 truck to a F350 to handle the camper better.

RE: Happijac remote plug

what does the back of it look like? its probably a standard phone jack outlet (probably with some different order to the wires to make it cost more). If you can even still buy a phone outlet jack???

RE: Refill small propane cylinder

you can refill the green bottles too. I refill my 30lbs tanks, and then use this adapter to refill my little green tanks from the big tank. link
