RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Update... This is what I have installed on the truck now. Hellwig sway bar, Stableload upper and lowers, airbags, Rancho 9k shocks and a Fox 2.0 steering stabilizer. The truck is overweight by a lot, but I've had it on the beach in deep sand, rear tires at 35psi and fronts at 20psi fully loaded without issue a good part of the summer. 85 miles both ways. I've talked to a lot of folks who carry a heavy campers like mine on SRW trucks and they have don't have everything I have on mine and have been fine for years. SRW 1K trucks seem to handle the weight just fine on/off road.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Okay... I installed Torklift uppers and lowers and a hellwig HD sway bar and it still rocks pretty good coming into my driveway, but the cornering is 100% better. I only need 25lbs in the airbags as well. I loaded it down and took it to the scales and the camper and gear Added an extra 5600lbs. So, yes it's overloaded, but seems to be handling it pretty well other than some porpoising here and there. I haven't taken it in the deep sand yet, so the jury is still out because i have to air the tires down and it can get pretty bumpy. Hopefully the ko2 tires and the roush rims can handle it.

Thanks for all the replies. I'm going to start with the torklift stabiloads first and go from there. I'll update this post with the results.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

I don't carry a ton of food and extra weight. I do carry a tool bag and a portable generator and I switched out the old batteries for lifepo 4's and converted the generator bay into another battery compartment. I know having SRW isn't ideal for the weight but I know it can handle it if I can get the suspension right.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

on another note.... I'm having a problem with the fridge running on LP. The error code is F (Burner not lighting?) Any advice on where to start troubleshooting that would be great. TY!

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Thanks for all the advice! I bought stableloads for the truck and hopefully they will help. The overloads are engaged and the shocks are new.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

I know the truck can handle it, I just need some conformation from someone that rocking side to side two-three times is normal after a bump. I don't think its going to tip over or fall off. I don't remember it rocking like that. Anything i can add to help that? This camper is going on the beach in deep sand and it gets bumpy. Im going to need to air down a bit as well. Im sure a dually is the fix all but It's not in the cards at the moment

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

I hope so. No RV dealer will touch this and I can't find anyone local that I can take it to. Praying

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Id love a dually, but a little outta my price range. The previous owner drove this across country with no issue.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

Hey everyone, I'm new to the truck camping world and have a few questions I have an 2017 arctic fox slide in on a 2015 f350 SRW with airbags and rancho 9000xl shocks. I upgraded the the rims from 18's to 20's and put on bf goodrich ko2 265/70r20.When I bought this whole package it didn't rock back and forth at all, now it will rock side to side 2-3 times when until it smooths out . I have it loaded fine and the tiedowns are snug. Trying to figure out what's wrong. You would think the upgrades would've helped it. going around curves isn't a treat either. I have 55psi in the airbags and it leveled just fine and have a very slight bulge in the tire but nothing to write home about. I want to use this as a beach buggy in NJ but there's no way I can do that with this sway/ rocking. Any feedback would be helpful. This is dry weight... 4k Hate to see adding an extra 1k loaded would do. Thanks.
