RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

A friend had a SRW and didn't know it's total weight. He carried a large Big Foot camper. And had three two or three blow outs all on the right rear tire. He finally upgraded to a DRW and never had a blow out after that.

RE: Valle De Juarez Open For Business

Are you still using a truck camper for your travels? Where the heck is that?

RE: Random Questions

5500 and flat tow. That will probably suit your needs in the long run.

RE: Wind Deflector

I was on a road trip and picked up a hood for one of my project cars. I had no place to haul it except strapped to the roof of the truck. I was surprised to find that it picked up almost 1 mpg on the 900 miles home. I'm going to build a deflector, probably like Sleepy did. On a 1000+ mile trip I picked up 1.5 mpg simply because of a slight tail wind. It only take a mild 5 mph wind (head or tail) to make a difference.

RE: LiFePo4 lithium battery charging questions

A DC-DC charger is required if you want to use the alternator to charge the battery. LiFePO batteries have very little internal resistance, and can overheat your alternator, causing it to die an early death. Battle Born batteries says not so: YouTube Presentation

Exterior dash cam for rear view?

I'm basically looking for a traffic dash cam (with chip that continuously records) that is weatherproof. No monitor - just a simple recording device - always on. Anyone have such a thing on their camper?

RE: Purchasing Warped Roof 1997 Bigfoot 2500 9’6”?

It looks risky to me. A friends 2003 Bigfoot delaminated on the inside and failed due to hitting pot hole - insurance cashed him out for $10,000 - this was about a year ago - so there's an ball park valuation for you. When the internal wood to fiberglass frame separates (delaminates) you will see a difference on the interior when the camper is on the truck and when it is on jacks. --- If the frame is damaged the flex will show up as a gap between cabinets or stove on the interior. You'd need to see it on the truck bed - inspect the interior - and on jacks and really look hard for spaces opening up on the interior.
