RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yes I think we will bring the watercraft. Hard to go out there and not bring them ;) we recently picked up an older Malibu wakesetter so would probably go to Lone Rock, hopefully not wall to wall rv’s :0 Yes he is hauling with a 3/4 ton.

Another pic showing how light and bright the rear of the camper is. Look at all them windows and counter space!!!! https://i.imgur.com/3Mx91U8l.jpg Are those full length drawers under the dinnette seats? Yes pretty sure they are carpeted full length, meeting up with him manana will check it out!!! The only thing holding me back from buying one is non bunk option My BIL picked up his WC850 today and is stoked, thinking of a WC reunion at Lake Powell in May ;) https://i.imgur.com/pndrD0vl.jpg

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yeah, the interior layout looks awesome. Knowing how the tanks are positioned on a similar size AF, I'd say the batteries and hot water location just offset the gray and black tanks. Tanks now in front and batteries and hot water in back. If anything, gray/black tanks near the front, if that's the case, would put more weight forward of the axle when they're full, then 2 batteries do. Bottom line it's a TC, it's heavy, go have fun! Where's the propane bottles hiding though? I looked at a couple other pics and don't see a propane compartment on either side. Only drawback, IMO is it has a smaller fresh water tank than comparable AF units. Packing as much fresh water as possible is a priority for me for camping without hookups. Well, that's the thing. It's no AF. WC's are way off from AFs capacities. BTW, who drives any long distance with their dump tanks full? I alwaYs run empty. Makes no sense to lug all that disposable weight around. We always leave home with the 50 gal fresh H20 full. It’s got to go somewhere! Not unusual it stays with us until we get home. It’s usually all grey and black by that time. Yes I agree, I usually just wait until I get home to dump everything if we are close. #1 I don’t feel like it and I have a cleanout at my house to dump. #2 the insane fees to dump, its not uncommon for campgrounds now to charge outrageous fees to dump a relatively small holding tank (20 gallons) for the full price of a huge 30+ fifth wheel with 75+ . Holding tanks!! I always scratch my head thinking why am I paying the same price as a huge fifth wheel that has at least double if not triple the waste? https://i.imgur.com/9RfI5g9l.jpg

RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

https://i.imgur.com/fLuJseel.jpg Ole Frosty keeps chugging along, I am looking at 280k miles (bought it with approx 190k) over 10 years ago for 8k and 90% of those miles are with the TC. I have replaced the alternator, coolant reservoir, parking break cable, and on my 3rd set of BFG’s. Added Torklift upper and lower stable loads that’s pretty much it. 4th gear (stick shift) occasionally slip out of gear sometimes :(. Also need some batteries soon.

Thanks for all the replies, I was looking at getting the lifelines and almost pulling the trigger, but these blems (don't come with handles) caught my eye , anyone have any experience with DEKA's?

RE: Any confessions? (Stuck in the mud)

here are a few for your enjoyment This August I took a wrong turn down a wash trying to get to the shore @ lake Powell pulling the jet skis: self rescue: Lesson learned should have listened to my gut and took the other way round and not followed the 4runners. https://i.imgur.com/qfkiDDvl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GiCi9TLl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/VGpYq5il.jpg self rescue @ Powell clicky several years ago in Anza Borrego had to call my brother in law for rescue: Lesson learned: as soon as you hit the dirt put it in 4wd!! stuck in 2wd and could not get it to engage in 4wd https://i.imgur.com/GjpPercl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/Io5HDKll.jpg June Wash Clicky Anza Borrego: backed into our campsite for the night and the seemingly hard pack was only crust and we sunk in good. I guess the lesson learned was to spot what is hard pack and what is not https://i.imgur.com/deVKt0tl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/CZn4UJZl.jpg Here had to call ranger steve came the next morning to pull me out https://i.imgur.com/axR54xvl.jpg

RE: Wolf Creek 850 roll over story

Just came across this thread/saga -- the camper is for sale again, and the seller included the pointer in the ad. https://orangecounty.craigslist.org/rvs/d/costa-mesa-truck-camper-2012-wolf-creek/7257401197.html that's very nice of the seller to disclose this. I did meet up with him several years ago to give him the scissor steps that I ended up with. I wouldn't hesitate to buy that camper it looks like a pretty good deal. It looks like he has done a bunch of mods. Northwood makes one tough camper! My second wolf creek has performed great and I have been and many many off road excursions. One of the major complaints that I can't really fathom especially with the Arctic fox is the furnace Northwood puts in their campers. How do you call their campers 4 season with NO heat in the cab over, bathroom and basement? Pretty much every time we camp in the snow the water lines behind the bathroom freeze up and the cabover gets so cold I have a pile of blankets and sleeping bags so high they almost touch the ceiling of the camper!!!

It’s been a good run

My 2 group 29 Interstates have been running since I purchased the camper new in May of 2014. Paid $170 for both of them at the dealer. Have performed great and we have used the you know what out of these!!! Hard to justify even thinking about lithium when these have met all our power needs. https://i.imgur.com/4a4ASN8l.jpg Our recent trip to Brian head for several nights in the parking Lot @ temps in the single digits pretty much put them to death :( thinking of moving the next batch of batteries (looking at AGMs) inside the camper but really have not had any issues from these. https://i.imgur.com/fQ9ORSYl.jpg So if it ain’t broke do I just buy the same set or go with AGM’s as it is a pain the check the water levels and can possibly move them Inside etc. Any ideas on the best deals out there? Thnx in advance Nolan

RE: Propane tank level monitor

Same here. Especially with the auto changeover valve. Hard to know how much you have. And hard to remember the last time when I had the tanks filled. Started to write it down but that didn’t last too long lol. I usually don’t use the auto change over and keep one tank closed for fear of a leak developing and losing all my propane :0

Propane tank level monitor

Getting sick of always wondering how much propane I have in tanks especially in winter. Does anyone have any experience with this? https://i.imgur.com/wq7O3Bxl.jpg Just ordered it so we’ will see how it works out

RE: Atwood Hydroflame 8531-IV Not Cycling

I had a similar issue a couple days ago while camping in temps below 10 degrees F. Since my batteries are located in an outside compartment they got so cold they started showing such low voltage my furnace failed to start back up. I hooked up my Honda genny and it solved the issue.

RE: Successful summer mods

Want to know if the fridge fans made a difference? Big or little difference? Great question, I would say it makes all the difference in the world!,, and scratching my head why a 4 season rated camper would not come with them from the factory. As we all know coolers are very difficult to cary with a TC and my fridge would be in the low 50’s in hot temps, now they are in the low 40’s and overnight gets down the the high 30’s, we just got back from beach camping where temps were in the 80’s and it was down in the low 30’s. I had to bring the setting down on the fridge for the first time ever. Of course with the kids getting in and out of the fridge really kills the temps. I found I can freeze bottles of water as well and put them in the fridge to help out.

RE: Repairing soft floor in my wolf creek

Is this the same camper? Lol yeah If I would have know then what I know now I should have dropped the tanks and reinforced it, or better yet I should have ordered the camper as a kit and put it together myself!!!

Successful summer mods

In anticipation of our week long lake Powell trip, I finally got around to installing some fans for better fridge circulation for summer camping as my fridge was lucky to get below 50 in 100+ temps https://i.imgur.com/Kd6BjGel.jpg I Was able to fit the controller in the cabover wardrobe , which has some nice settings (speed and timer control) https://i.imgur.com/WltRwrhl.jpg I Also went way overboard and installed some fans in the side vent :0 pulling air in https://i.imgur.com/Te91MWCl.jpg Switch https://i.imgur.com/3tuvmaVl.jpg I can finally cook outside using my on board tanks https://i.imgur.com/R3HEUdxl.jpg And yes great 1 week stay at a secluded spot at Lake Powell where temps were very HOT!!! But we had the place to ourselves and my food didn’t spoil https://i.imgur.com/h6ZUrCzl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/tFhoIOGl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/GR8q4WNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/BgJF007l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/AorQrD6l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HnTMofEl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/7vxjtX0l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/oA83fd0l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/6KnU6QZl.jpg Also installed a filter for the furnace in anticipation for winter camping, I had a bunch of dust in the furnace compartment so hopefully this helps https://i.imgur.com/oN29gDll.jpg

RE: Repairing soft floor in my wolf creek

Thanks for all the replies and suggestions Now I’m scratching my head, I removed the table leg insert and there appears to be reinforced with more plywood than I thought but could this just be around the table legs or is the entire floor have this much wood? I find it hard to imagine they reinforced the table legs but the area that sees the most use gets a thin piece of luan https://i.imgur.com/pBuXi8nl.jpg I don’t think I will have much clearance for this storage nook if I put another type of flooring down so now back to the drawing board. https://i.imgur.com/pWE4BcRl.jpg I guess I will just have to live with a soft floor :(
