RE: Short bed Ram Dually - Relocation of Camper anchor required?

I needed a little more outward room to attach my Fastguns. I called Bigfoot to see if they were OK with me using a shouldered machinery eyebolt on the camper hold downs. They were OK with that. Then talked to Torklift about extending the Torklift truck frame extensions. They recommended drilling a 1/4" hole 1" farther inboard on the truck extensions. That would push the truck lower Fastgun attachment points farther outboard.

RE: Short bed Ram Dually - Relocation of Camper anchor required?

Yeah call Torklift. They may recommend the anchor relocation kit. Easy to install. Just 2 overlapping pieces of angle iron that you drill for the new anchor spot.

RE: TX-146 to Avoid Houston

^^This. I can throw a rock at 146. Be very careful around Orange. Lots of construction with narrow lanes. You may want to avoid the Calcaseiu River bridge in Lake Charles. My wife won't go over it. Supposedly the most dangerous bridge in the US. Could fall anytime. Take Loop 210 around the south side.

RE: Is Facebook killing this site?

There are a couple groups specific to Bigfoot campers and there is a RV Electricity group that is good. Otherwise I use it to keep up with fellow retirees from work, and who of that group just died.

RE: Newbie with questions

Not Good Sam road service. AAA or Coach Net. Extended warranty by the manufacturer, you "might" break even.

RE: ....new truck camper manufacturer in Quebec

Yuppies might find it cute but it does nothing for me. Black? No bueno around here.

RE: Wash Wax All - front caps and BUGS

Thanks for the WashWax info. I just bought tickets for the World of Outlaws Sprint car nationals in Knoxville Ia. Went to their June race there last year and watched Kyle Larson kick their butts. I think we're back in business!

RE: Wash Wax All - front caps and BUGS

Thanks Ford Guy. I put that on my Amazon wish list. Question about the Wash/Wax All....How well does it have to be dried and what happens if you miss a spot? I don't look forward to hand drying a 40ft 5th. Did you make it to Richmond? It was the 3rd and last on our 3 race tour.

RE: Ram 3500 truck bed

5/8" plywood covering every square inch of the bed. Model specific rubber mat on top of that that covers every square inch of the plywood.

RE: Happijac question....

You say it's a new camper. New to you, as in in previously owned, or brand new off the assembly line? If it is brand new I would get the dealer to replace those 2016 batteries. The Happi Jacs should have a section of red paint on the black section of the inner jack to warn you that it's near the end of the travel.

RE: Heavy duty hitch extension??

If you're hauling a "race" trailer you've likely seen a toter. Only brand I can think of of the top of my head is Haulmark. Buying a used one with about the same size or bigger than a cabover wouldn't be that much more $ than what you have in your truck and a new camper.

RE: Recommended jack stand ground support plates.

Just back from 3 NASCAR races...Bristol, Martinsville, and Richmond. Lots of rain and soft dirt campgrounds. I used 24" X 24" 5/8" plywood under the the front legs of the 5th wheel. Used plastic under the middle legs and the same size plywood under the rear legs. No problems. I did see a Class C stuck at Martinsville.

RE: Best/Favorite RV Resort

I've never stayed in a RV park that I thought...this is perfect. I find something wrong with all of them, but I've never paid more than about $60. The Disney RV park in Florida is supposed to be nice but I have no desire to go there. I haven't seen too many upscale joints in the places we travel. Maybe tourist traps like Gatlinburg. I believe there are RV parks that only accept Class A motorhomes. You may want to do a search for more advice in the Class A forum here, or look in a forum for your brand of MH. I'm guessing they are not on every corner though, so you may have to overnight in a normal park in between stays in a upscale park. Maybe there's a secret list somewhere I haven't seen.

RE: Recommended jack stand ground support plates.

^Mole hill, meet mountain...lol Refreshingly, Capt Obvious has arrived... lol That would be Mr. Obvious as in.. Hello Mr. Obvious, long time listener, first time caller. I think I have a wild animal in the pipes under the sink. Whenever I flip this switch it makes the animal mad and it growls... What comedian did that routine? But yes, mole hill meet mountain. Scrap plywood until it slowly melts away into the mud.
