RE: Tires (the weakest link)

I went with the Visions for our F350 SRW. That was to allow me to go to commercial tires as I felt the rubber would be the weakest link. I went with Michelin XDS2's. 16 ply with load range H. Camper on, I run them at 120 PSI. Camper off I run them at 80. Supposed to be good for 100,000 kms. and so far it looks like they just may. I got drive treads for the rear but steer treads for the front (quieter up front). I also upgraded the TPMS valves at $35 each but they have never worked. The truck won't recognize them. Every time I ramp up to 120 psi I get a dashboard message,..."low tire pressure". Go figure. I just feel much safer with these tires.

RE: Roadmaster or Hellwig

I have a stock sway bar on the front, and added a Bigwig on the back. I believe it has 3 settings. I had to call their cust. support once to get the best setting to use. On a Sunday afternoon, just before dinner I had a tech. on the first ring. Amazing,....knew his stuff too. I am very happy with the product,....AND the service. I don't know anything about Roadmaster.

RE: Fridge won't fit

I can't find it now but saw a video once. Probably Youtube but not sure. Put dinette down & cover with moving blanket. Lay fridge on it & cut it in half with a sawz-all & take it out the door. Then take most of the back off the new fridge, and the door. Just enough to get it in the entrance door. Put it all back together again on the moving blanket & then install. I never would have though of doing it but was amazed how well it worked.

RE: New Palomino hard side 'solar ready'??

Our Arctic Fox is also solar ready pre-wired. For us that means there are the wires run through into the battery compartment, and also up to the roof to connect to the panels, which we have not done. The controller that we would have to buy would be installed on the wall near the kitchen sink, near the radio & water heater controls. It simply consists of a label on the wall. "put controller here", or something like that. It just shows where you have to CUT into the wall to mount the controller. I assume all the wires are in the wall behind it that I would need, after I get my drywall knife out. Good luck.

RE: Shark-fin Antenna

I can't quite picture your issue but there are lots of stubby replacements out there. https://www.amazon.ca/s?k=stubby+car+aerial&ref=nb_sb_noss

RE: Truck Camper Security

Can't help you with product info but whatever motion sensor you get I would be sure is has a decent sensitivity adjustment. On a windy day gusts can get the loaded camper rocking pretty good if the legs are not down. Good luck.

RE: Back Porch Ideas

This may also provide some ideas. https://www.truckcampermagazine.com/camper-mods/contests/camper-aluminum-deck-fabrication-project/ I just don't like the amount of time it would take to get in when pulling over to make lunch, etc.,........especially with a toad attached.

RE: Winterization of hot water heater?

Don't do what I did,...twice. If you have used your fresh water holding tank,....at all,.....be sure to drain it of course, but also, run the water pump, until dry. This gets the water out of the line between the fresh water tank and the water pump. Otherwise the one-way valve (usually plastic) will crack when frozen. That turns it into a leaky two way valve. Not good.

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

I am not sure what the point of putting pink into a drained fresh tank would be, at any time let alone for a few years. In any case to winterize I blow out the lines, then flow the pink through, then blow out again. Makes is so much easier to get the pink taste/smell out of the lines in the spring because it hasn't been eating into the lines all winter.
