RE: Registration Rant

The time is coming soon when I am so outta California. Made that decision in 1998, after 32 years in Ca. Sorry, but I'm not going to tell you my 'new' location. Gettin' crowded here (too).

RE: How is the "new" Outfitter Mfg doing?

The 'new' Outfitter didn't start until early 2019, when Scott Mavis and his company bought them.

RE: 1989 Jayco Sportster 8, Upgrade Recommendations

If I were doing this again, I would definitely use a vented catalytic heater -- Vented cat. No open windows or other venting needed.

RE: Winter RV'ing in Northern NWT/Yukon

Wait a minute -- is this some sort of purification ritual?

RE: True Truck Payload

I'm one of those people who look at axle ratings and not necessarily GVWR. I had my camper on a 2500 Chevrolet for 80k miles. 1200lbs over the gvwr. But under the tire and axle ratings. Mark This is the correct answer.

RE: Winter RV'ing in Northern NWT/Yukon

Peter-hs, https://www.yukoninfo.com/listing/eagle-plains-hotel-service-station/ Yeah, Eagle Plains, 'great spot', they claim to have 30a hooks ups. Are you going that far north?

RE: Colorado by drone

You're wrong. I love it -- almost as much as being there.

RE: 2WD or 4X4 for a truck camper

Do you "Really Need" a 4X4 with a truck camper?.. Do you really want to save $1000+- on a $60,000 truck?

RE: Spring blocks disintegrated

Hockey pucks look better and are easier to get. You can keep your flimsy hockey pucks.

RE: Spring blocks disintegrated

Please tell me more. Where did you get it? How did you mount it? The whole story is here . With the springs and pads as shown, my loaded truck sat at stock height, and I had no sway or any other handling problems on many extreme offroad trips. As to where I bought the material, I don't remember. Internet search for UHMW will find many sources.

RE: Trip report: High Country of the Eastern Sierra

You sure pick the great places. Fantastic pictures. Don't know about your climate judgement however.

RE: Spring blocks disintegrated

the blocks in the springs fell out Block IN the springs?? Do you mean the pads that the overload springs push against under load? Or something different? If the former, I made my pads out of Ultra High Molecular Weight polyethylene, UHMW. It's cheap, can be bought in just about any size, cuts and drills as easy as wood, but wears stronger than steel. I wore out several kinds of pads until this was recommended. Thousands of miles -- no wear, no problems. http://www.ctwillis.com/car/2500HD/Springs/photos/124_1530.JPG width=640

RE: Where do you find water

I've found that many service stations will also allow a fill. Purchase first can't hurt.
