RE: 2022 F350 order options for TC

Start with checking resale of gas trucks. Here is a gasser.

RE: 2022 F350 order options for TC

OP, I like/agree with all your choices for truck/options with the only exception being I personally would probably skip the 4x4 on a dually to get a lower camper & COG.

RE: Question: too much camper - too little truck

Make sure you are not overweight on your tires on the rear axle. Check your tire rating vs the actual weight on that axle. Our F-350 weighs about 7500lbs fully loaded on the rear. Our camper weighs about the same as yours except we have a long bed. We added 19.5 wheels/tires , upper and lower torklifts, rancho 9000 shocks to make it ride better. We also have the camper package sway bar.

You may have more than an ant problem. Ants like wet wood. Check if you have any leaks from inside/outside.

RE: Rancho shock question

I like the adjustable rancho shocks for our truck/camper. We have in-cab control for adjusting them. Our previous truck I had to crawl under to adjust. Use 10 setting on rear and 6 on fronts when the camper is installed.

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

Burned wood in our house for a few decades. A few years ago we switched to a Harman XXV pellet stove. The only advantages the wood stove had for us was it was really to cheap to run and quieter. We much prefer the pellet stove. Here is good place to research wood and pellet stoves. Hearth

RE: How many have had Thanksgiving in a truck camper?

We had thanksgiving in our camper a few years ago. Thought it would be fun to go to Detroit Lake campground on thanksgiving. Cooked two game hens in our propane oven so we each had our own "Turkey". Weather was cool with intermittent showers. Would do it again but not this year, don't know if the campground is even open after the fires this summer. Update on Detroit Lake; Park is closed while staff repair damage from the Lionshead Fire. All reservations will be canceled and fees refunded for the duration of the closure.

RE: need help trying to locate structural roof frame

You could remove ceiling speaker(s) and try probing for the ceiling support ribs through the speaker holes.

RE: What are the top 5 advantages of a TC?

My list comparing to the Motorhome & 5th wheel I owned. I like TC's because I can camp in small campsites. Being able to take Camper off truck and use the truck for hauling. (gravel,firewood,etc) Able to replace the Truck and keep the same camper. Easier to park.

RE: Opinions on my dilema - newer trucks SRW vs DRW

We are running same camper on SRW LB gasser. If you go gas you can get the payload you need. If you must go diesel, get a DRW. Long bed is not an issue-in fact I intentionally put a SB camper on a LB truck. LB usually gets you greater payload and we love the added storage. I made a wood frame to keep the camper in place. With the EC 850 on a LB I am able to slide the camper forward more than a SB truck. This puts the COG ~ 2” forward of the axle. On our last SB truck the camper was ~ 2” behind the axle as the camper hits the front of the bed (of course). Very pleased with our new setup. BTW; I went from diesel back to gas. The new ten speed trannys are a game changer for gassers. I don’t live in the Rocky’s though... What payload does that give you on 2020 CC LB gasser? Is that with 6.2 or 7.3 engine?

RE: Need Suspension Mods

I agree with Buzzcut check your tire rating. My F350 fully loaded is similar with 4000lbs on the front axle and 7600lbs on the rear axle carrying Adventurer 910FBS camper with 19.5 Tires.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Our RV air conditioner stopped working. Blowing warm air, but I could tell the compressor would try to startup for a second or two. Got on the roof and measured the 5/50 startup capacitor. Fan side measured 5uf , compressor side measured 1.5uf instead of 50uf. Found a replacement part on ebay for $20. Must be lot of them failing since lots of places were out of stock. Put the new one in today and it works great.
