RE: Wilford Brimley - RIP

Definitely one of a kind.

RE: Timbrens vs Stableloads

I like this approach as they enhance OE suspension and do not effect unladen ride. I think you answered your own question.

RE: Saying good bye to a old friend..Our Lance 815

You two certainly have been around Alex. Glad to hear you're not retiring. Want to see pictures of the new TC.

RE: New to Truck Camping

The best you can hope in this (continuing) discussion/argument is to understand the factors in your particular situation -- and hopefully make a sound decision. The two extremes for max load are: 1) believe what the manufacture says, and 2) real max load is the minimum of rear axle capacity / spring capacity / tire capacity. I was and am a 2 man (within reason).

RE: Removing Contact Overloads

I don't know what they mean be 'contact overloads', either. But I do know that I did something similar on a similar truck, and certainly did not remove the bottom overload spring. In fact, I increased it's usefulness. Top overload springs My objective was to have the fully loaded truck ride at stock height -- which it did.

RE: Wilderness camping and gun safety

Never felt remotely unsafe on any of my deep offroad camping trips. But I almost always had the shotgun ready (at night -- not while driving), 1 to jack into firing position and 7 in reserve. 00 buckshot or rifled slug, depending on the area. Never fired a shot.

RE: Back up camera using factory screen

I apologize for slightly expanding the question. Who knows have to change a stock 'backup' camera into a rear view camera that can be turner on and off with a switch, instead of selecting reverse. (I know it will be manufacturer specific). That's how my old truck/TC was setup with an aftermarket camera and screen, and it was very useful since the inside mirror is useless with the TC on.

RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

Outstanding work, and beautiful result. But for full credit, you have to show your design work. (or not, it's the result that counts)

RE: Is it just me !

You'll never know --- because they don't report back.

RE: How many amp-hours?

I don’t think you can have too many amp hours. You might also want to think about going Li-Ion so you can run the battery down to a lower percentage. Two good answers here.

RE: Do you drink.......

Always drank tank water for the 11+ years I had the camper. Might have been a big mistake though -- during that time, I got 11 years older.

RE: Your next outing??

You'd be waking up at 2AM to your truck and camper being dragged on the end of a chain by a large 4WD tractor, You do mean on your own property, don't you? Otherwise, things could go very wrong -- quickly.
