RE: vibration

Sounds a lot like the "Death Wobble" this can occur in 4 wheel drive vehicles that have a solid front axle and coil springs. I when through this on my 2007 F 250 4x4, it took a combination of installing a heavy duty track bar and keeping my front tire at max inflation rating on those tire. Also this can occur at anytime and the speed range as you describe was similar to mine. Death wobble video Death Wobble 2

RE: Need help shedding 3/4 ton - Lithium Battery project

I run Battle Born in my rig, I have a compressor refrigerator and needs the storage power of lithium batteries. After a lot of research I decided on Battle Born for their over all performance and discovered during my research that not all lithium batteries will deplete beyond the 95% level also the 10 year warranty is the best I've seen.

RE: First TC Rally

I would like to know if the tag axle camper did the Bradshaw Trail? The camper with the tag didn't do the trail run, in fact this tag design doesn't attach it self to the camper. You may see it this design being marketed soon.

RE: First TC Rally

Yah, I saw that AFTER it was over... I was just up the dirt road there, Tyson Wash so that would have been fun. I've set the general date for next year if they have another one.. Fun.. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/8MSonbm4M7ETUiFyyr64ckOqdUS7PrlIbpEHfPq8ms_WmkeS0rHDMCiaBV7xudicfh851MpraOc8T-gPD7thHCcXm1FD4X-nGCxvIfhau8fp_JtncyvWff9eUoy9-s2E3j_MQAHYmd4mxXsKjrbzb54X2zcnZrRqFT5rtr8JgEmqlz6hTFa4DYXYG9YkHify3wT7Zq0JePBBCbB6S61l-uhEfEWvvl7yUa6QLwWZ13QscKDfLO1SLnkLtwob6dEyAuODnUUQafhACGqEmQYeq5itSkHyIgkDSV-vDef4ZK9CutX_LoWGLQdawwYUJTFwA34tSGwqZF5rvBCPJGj8XDHgbvgindPO3c5EQC1v3te5HAul56DYAGQ5TCo4PcgYFexBnwaaWCOMu1Z5qyku4FLouezCZbnZl8F03NaMbMpF_R_OLSyDsqXp2vUC5XWUzKk-UwVyvlgINW7sZRdpJWEcyMu7J-WwXIk_61BMOBNmWJfUgM9joxyMYDsjtOrCeBrvZdJzt1wQuHDc3_xc-KQCgbrzPlpH8sd-BH7_QYyaGSoBipxxVWGbpRiMeP08x0GS_R7rOUxCH5REiAfrY19VLK_qb8xhC5k-beUz8aDb8gZ1xlr67dkO6Xs21FdVm1VOuOh1594XNDTyRWWF8wYl37TKKvzBu148iqFelaJMEwLaVhpaq4YpzI-BuLpY8F1a5_zpU4vM2qzP1Xw6EWgzG0JkiPiW16sHVlEvCHo4kg_Klw=w357-h268-no Another TC rally is going happen about the same time next year and most likely a different close by trail will be picked.

First TC Rally

My DW (Julie) and myself (Alex) attended our first TC rally hosted by Truck Camper Adventure (their first as well). My involvement in this rally is to scout out the Bradshaw Trail for the condition of the trail. This would be a after the Rally trail run in which 14 TC would end up transverse. https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/2020-Bradshaw-Rally/i-PcHfRP9/0/d7141b5e/L/P1380615-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/2020-Bradshaw-Rally/i-dZNQmZb/0/2036a9e3/L/P1380627-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/2020-Bradshaw-Rally/i-rhvCF2r/0/c36e7d4b/L/P1380662B-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/2020-Bradshaw-Rally/i-SjpQKrv/0/2471cd93/L/P1380681-L.jpg https://photos.smugmug.com/Travel/2020-Bradshaw-Rally/i-XFzFNqj/0/f39cb9a6/L/P1380769B-L.jpg Here's a couple of video on Scouting the Bradshaw Trail.

RE: Battery monitor upgrade: Out with the old, in with the new

Nice video, I had installed my Victron 712/BT smart battery monitor two days ago. I did have a lot of trouble in getting the blue tooth to connect, since I was installing a lithium battery there's a number of setting that have to be changed so the Victron 712/BT knows its reading a lithium battery.

RE: Lance 815 Stove Replacement

That is the same stove that came factory in my 04 Lance 815. Looked like a nice easy swap. Just be careful with a large pot on the right burner as the heat may come off the edge and melt the knobs. Not from experience, but from the previous owner. I haven't had a problem but only use a 4qt pot on the right burner. I did take note of that burner and thanks for the information.while searching for a new stove I discovered that there's simply not a lot of choices.

Lance 815 Stove Replacement

It's been awhile since I've posted anything on RV.net. I made a video of installing a replacement 2 burner stove in my 2002 Lance 815, the old Atwood was worn out so it was time for a new one. Stove Replacement

RE: Anyone going to Quartzite

I'll be there in Feb for the Truck Camper magazine rally. Planning on being more over near Phoenix or Tucson in Jan. It's the Truck Camper Adventure Rally at Road Runner Wash. Rally 53 TCs have signed up for this first time event that Truck Camper Adventure is putting on. I'm looking to seeing everyone who signed up there, plus 21 TCers have signed up to do the Bradshaw Trail. To my personal knowledge this would be the largest group of TC's that's transverse this trail.

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

Most like at sometime all of us have rode in the TC, is it safe, not a chance. Here's a link that show state by state if you can or can't. Riding in a TC You decide for yourself, it's a risk.

RE: Preventing Butyl Tape from oozing out

I use pro-flex for covering over the Butyl tape. Have been able to stop all the oozing except the door threshold plate, TCing since 2002!

RE: Moki Dugway, can I do it?

Leaving Cortez Co. for destinations in the west, was just wondering if it is doable for us being what we are, a long bed Ford DRW towing a 14 ft. utility cargo trailer on a 42 inch extension which enables us good maneuverability for some very tight spots. Our truck camper is a Arctic Fox 992 on a 2012 Ford DRW 6.7 diesel.you are I've been on the Moki Dugway several times and I've seen rigs longer than your tackle this road, just swing wide on the curves and take it slow. Me and a friend on the Moki Dugway.

RE: Alaska RV trip loop routes/planning resources

Planning a trip with our 3 boys who will be 17, 14, 8, to Alaska, Mid July 2020 for 3 weeks. We don't have time to drive there with our TT, so will fly, into Anchorage and hire a Motorhome. Prob spend 2 nights Anchorage, then want to plan a loop route. Perhaps with campground suggestions, or even spots to boondock? or campgrounds with fishing. Any itinerary ideas, perhaps also including the lesser known but still accessible? We would also like to be in some areas with fishing (not on a boat), and not where you have to fight for a spot to stand. We like to spend a few days in each place, and limit driving to just a few long drives, but with mostly shorter drives (perhaps 2-3hrs). Thanks! Not a lot of time even for flying up there, I'm going to limit to two places due to your time frame. 1) McCarthly/Kennicott copper mills there's ,fishing along the way and lots of beautiful scenery. 2) Homer Spit Also check out the trip reports posted in the Truck Camper Forum on Alaska, there's plenty of them with photos and videos. Any questions just PM me.
