RE: Black tank treatments.

I drop in 2 packets of dishwasher pods. They cut through grease and **** on dishes without making suds and will do the same for the black and gray water tanks. I've never had odors and this seems to break down the turds to slurry. My brother bought a 5th wheel and said his gray water tank drainage was stinking pretty well and asked what to do. I recommended 2 of the pods and he said that did the trick. It's cheap. It works. All my sensors for fluid levels stay clean and work.

RE: Motorcycle on receiver rack.

I have a tilting rack. Unlock a pin, the thing tilts. A ramp slides out as well. Ride it up standing next to it. It has a front wheel holder. When the bike reaches the front wheel holder, it tilts to normal and you push the lever and lock in. Then tie down as normal and off you go. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/ACtC-3fT19BGQiGToRc4o5ZGL776qrIzvK2R3OrWxgdfVP3-pBg5HhZGNq4nNqAdbUkysj-g3-65uERK6nkj-QE_y6APbPyQHPRZ3O3iuDNOp_xTPNkJFE_xEg16AoTGt7X7xejd6pVIJztjMWf74cddFJ1a1w=w616-h821-no?authuser=0

RE: Need to Haul Cargo with a Truck registered as an RV (CA)

Besides the Handicap plates being generic to truck or car, so is the personalized vanity plates. It's not a Alpha/Numeric sequence that can be easily identified as commercial or not. I have considered vanity plates on my California truck and opting to declare it permanent RV status just to save a few bucks. But vanity plates have their own fees and charges so not likely to save all that much. Mine is a 2006 Dodge Ram 4x4 short bed 2500. Meaning it's 15 years old. Most recent annual fees for registration was on 04/27/21 and I paid $398. Figure that was the lowest price since new, I've paid at least $6,000 in DMV registration fees. The truck has 82,000 miles on it. Over 7 cents a mile for the privilage to drive on California roads. That doesn't include fuel taxes either! Pardon my rant.

RE: Need to Haul Cargo with a Truck registered as an RV (CA)

IF you decided to register your truck in California as having a permanent mounted camper, you must declare the camper's value in calculating the DMV fees. Something tells me that a $20,000 camper on a $30,000 'passenger vehicle' is going to come close to costing the same as a $30,000 truck in fees.

RE: Repo a Truck Camper???

Yes, they can and will repo it. They hire a repo company and they won't care if your personal property is in it or not. They won't care if they damage it or not. They are paid to recover it and take it to the repo yard and get paid.

RE: Ram 3500 truck bed

Most use some sort of mat, like a horse stall mat, for traction. Not relying on the friction to the smooth bed for the camper to stay in place with just the tie downs. A mat will help distribute the weight across the ribs as well.

RE: Recommended jack stand ground support plates.

I use a chunk of 2x8 about 1' long. Those plastic jack pads and snap-together ramps are too slippery and allow the camper to 'walk' if the lift or lower is uneven. A weathered 2x8 has plenty of grip.

RE: Truck bed camper shim

My 2006 Dodge RAM diesel short bed is the same way; shallow at the cab, deeper at the tail gate. It really bothered me, the way it looked so I did something about it. I used a full length rubber bed mat made for my short bed truck and cut the front 1/3 off and laid that over the end close to the tail gate. This made the bed a 3-step level with 2 layers of rubber mat at the tail gate, 1 layer in the middle and zero layers near the cab. This made it so the camper was now even with the side rail of the bed. Measuring between the camper and the top of the bed is now within 1/4" front to back. The rubber flexes and gives so the load is pretty much even across the bottom of the camper.
