RE: Just bought Truck Camper- how do I move

For the record, I will wait till get the proper equipment. The full story is I wrecked my truck on way to MN in late November in Kentucky. It took till last week to get fixed from mechanic. We bought a TC in Jax in July, thinking truck would be ready in a week per mechanic. I didn't want to spend $1k on tie downs not knowing if the truck would actually run. As soon as I got confirmation on truck actually fixed and drove home, I called Torklift and they said not in stock and they had to build them. The dealer I bought TC from has called me several times about picking up the unit and I always said I'm coming soon. Well, soon never came, not sure of truck status till end of last week. I called Torklift and their phones were out a day or so because of the fires which the person I spoke with said they were very close to the fires but still open and producing. He will be without power at his house for a week or more he said. So now I have to wait to get the proper tie downs. Better safe than sorry. PS- why doesn't the USA suspend putting a man on Mars and the Moon and concentrate on putting out forest fires with the money and effort. I feel for the people of the American West, would much rather have a hurricane than fire anyday. Thanks for all the comments. Good plan on waiting for proper equipment. That’s what I did when I got my camper way back when. Longest couple of weeks in my life! Ha! As for the fires...well...there’s a whole lot more than just $$$ at play. But sticking to the main topic here, enjoy your camper when you finally can get it home safely!

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Flushed and rinsed the freshwater tank and grey water and will let it sit with a vinegar solution to clear out the bleach scent and flavor. Draining that and filling it up Sunday to depart Monday.

RE: New Host Mammoth

Really looking forward to seeing photos! I’ve heard good things about that camper.

RE: Is a Gas 3/4 Truck and Pop-up Camper Safe in Colorado?

Short answer: yes. Don’t overload it and you’ll be fine.

RE: Coffee maker off inverter and battery in a truck camper

I just boil water on my propane stove and use a French press. Fresh coffee with zero electricity. No generator and one less electronic device to go crazy on me. I like things simple.

Replaced some dead bulbs in the rear running lights.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

Weird. Agree it’s an unusual issue since I’ve had not problem with TorkLift tie downs and don’t know if anybody that has had problems as described in the OP. Shrug. Perhaps the truck is the problem?

RE: 2002 Lance 811 Rebuild - Update 09.30.2020- PROJECT COMPLETE

WOW. This is an incredible thread. Waaayyy more of a project than I would ever have the guts to undertake and it’s coming along beautifully. Truly awesome!

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

I cleaned up the caulking around the skylight over the shower and sprayed some flex seal over the front area where it had split and let water in. Doing another coat tomorrow and getting my propane tanks filled and ready to roll for my trip in a couple of weeks.

RE: Campsite Squatters

Rangeland studies show ATV’s and bikes have less impact than pack animals. Hooves are worse on trails and soil substrate than round, rubber tires. Lots of research out there on this.

RE: new tc owner...soon

That’s a lot of camper for your truck. I’d look for something smaller and lighter weight. But as others mentioned, check for water damage around windows, ceiling vents, cabinets, and corners. Also under mattress for mold and mildew. And soft spots in the floor. Climb up and check the roof thoroughly. Then go find a bigger truck or smaller camper.

RE: Campsite Squatters

Well then I guess I’m not a tree hugger, but I’ve never been clear on what’s exactly that term means. But I do like pooping outside and away from people. And I also do my best to not waste resources and protect what little wilds we have left. So maybe I am? I need a beer.

RE: Campsite Squatters

What’s wrong with being a tree hugger exactly? I’m one and I am not going to hide my love of nature and the environment because it’s become cool to mock people who don’t want to trash the natural world. That said, I poop and pee and dump dish water when I’m out camping because...it’s natural. Dish soap in small concentrations, buried in sand isn’t going to kill forests or grasslands. Per and poop contain nitrates and organic matter and moisture for plants and bacteria. But back to the original question of this thread, it seems to me that the guys occupying a spot for weeks on end, but only physically being there for a day or two are the very best thing for the environment. They certainly have minimal impact, no?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Found the source of the leak in my bathroom skylight. Massive downpour last night and had about a quarter cup of water on the shower. Climbed to the roof and spotted a crack and slight gap in the caulking on the front, passenger side corner of the skylight. After it dries completely, I’ll be spraying it with the super rubber spray stuff from tv. Got some in Walmart last year and it actually works on some household stuff I’ve tried it on. Figure it’s worth a shot.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Ran the bedding and shower curtain through the laundry. “Shout” is amazing stuff.

RE: Campsite Squatters

It’s the second law of thermodynamics. Everything eventually turns to poo.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

New batteries today. Last ones were from 2015 and one was not holding a charge. Should be good for a few years with minimal hassle now.

RE: Campsite Squatters

Ah! The internet: where a question about people leaving campers in a spot they’re not using turns into Dumping sewage and digging holes for poo. Magical I tells ya.

RE: How to store truck tailgate when off truck

I just put the tailgate against a garage wall too. No big deal. As soon as I’m home again, off comes the camper and on goes the tailgate.

RE: Campsite Squatters

Have any of you noticed people leaving their trailers in great campsites on BLM and USFS land during the week and then showing up on the weekends to camp? I haven’t noticed it where I go. But I tend to go way out into the boondocks where not many other people go on purpose. Plenty of space out there in the world. No need to go where others are.
