RE: Alpenlite SUTC?

I remember hearing about it back in 2007. I ditched my toy hauler and switched to a truck camper because I got tired of dealing with the motorcycle in the way when stopping overnight somewhere, on my way to a destination. Here's one reason I love my cargo trailer.

RE: Adding a new 120 vac circuit and outlet

Here's another video showing how I did it in my Nash 17k about 2 years or so ago.

RE: Lithium and DC-DC Charger?

I ordered the Renogy unit and returned it two days later. The reason for returning it was because it was too big for the extremely limited space in my AF992. About the same time I returned it, I discovered Victron makes a DC to DC charger. It's smaller capacity, but will serve my needs. It's the Orion Smart TR 12-12 / 30 unit. Like all my other Victron kit, I can configure / monitor it through the Victron Connect Bluetooth App. The Victron unit is about 1/3 the size of the Renogy.

RE: disappointing info for Jeep Trailhawk flat tow

Trailhawk is a trim level of a particular model Jeep, but I am not sure which models all carry the trim level of Trailhawk. Which "Model" is your Jeep? Liberty, Compass, Partiot, Cherokee, Renegade, Grand Cherokee?

RE: Tearing down an RV safely

Also, if the frame is good, I'm making a flatbed out of it. But you said the frame is rotten... This spring, I will be taking apart a 1975 trailer that the frame is rotten and may not even survive the winter.

RE: Pass-through window custom replacement??

Does anyone have a source for custom sliding window replacements? My new camper has a solid fixed window and I want to replace it with a slider (so the cat can go upfront). Vancouver, WA - www.motionwindows.com They outfitted my Arctic fox with really nice thermal pane sliding windows. Don't waste your time with the other link - that is LIPPERT. People despise those windows.

RE: SeeLevel tank monitors

Yes, I did. I will never go back to the old school 4 light system. As long as you have access to your tanks, you are good. You need to stick the new sensors to the side of the tanks. I bought my system at the ABQ, NM FMCA rally back in about 2010 I think. My See Level Tank Monitors When I sold my truck camper, I kept the display panel to install in my new truck camper. I will need to buy new sensors though.

RE: 13'5" clearance

since top height is the AC unit and cannot damage bridge structure if it touches. A roof top A/C unit isn't going to damage a bridge. Instead, the bridge will do a very fast "air conditioner delete" mod for you, then you won't have to worry about height anymore.

RE: Making Oil

I had an 08 Duramax with 140k on it when I traded it. I always joked about it making oil. My 2009 has just under 70k miles and I've never added oil to mine either.

RE: Making Oil

I had the same issue with my 2008 Chevy 2500 Duramax. This was a well documented issue at the time. During regen fuel is injected into the piston during the exhaust cycle which which pushes unburned fuel through the exhaust system into the DPF where it burns the diesel particles. Some fuel would find its way back into the oil. This was the LMM Duramax - 2007.5-2010 model years The problem was corrected in later years by injecting fuel into the manifold during Regen. This was the LML Duramax, 2010-2016. It has the DEF system.

RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

That hitch pictured does appear to have damage from jack knifing the trailer rather than a material failure. OOPS, yep. I see that now that I look at the photos again. It's been jack-knifed in both directions multiple times

RE: How did I do this? - Bent Ball Mount

Seeing as how they are using thin stamped steel and not forged like all others I can see why it would bend. THere's multiple brands of hitches that look identical to this one, which isn't made out of "thin stamped steel" https://i.imgur.com/4odr2iil.jpg It's likely the identical looking hitches marketed by different companies are all made in the same factory overseas.

RE: 12 volt DC problem

A lot of RVs have the converter connected to a shared circuit. I don't like that style of wiring. I re-wired my panel and put the converter on its own breaker as shown in this video

RE: 12 volt DC problem

Battery is dead. Time to charge it. If you are plugged in to 120vac power, then for some reason the battery isn't charging. Need more details in order to help diagnose your problem.

RE: Lithium and DC-DC Charger?

Even in a TC, the charging circuit to the camper batteries is surprisingly long, and while you can minimize the voltage drop, you can’t eliminate it. Install a DC-DC charger with adequately sized wires and forget about voltage drop entirely. Ditto on charging cable upgrade. this is my project with 4AWG cables between the truck and camper.

RE: replacing Brake Pads

Be sure to turn the rotors. Flush the fluid too.

RE: mounting extra brake lights on 1.5” struts, NO drilling.

Neither of those will work on his Torklift Talon tiedowns, which are aluminum. No one else but me probably noticed that. That was the first thing I noticed in the OP's photo.

RE: V6 Silverados

As to the size of gas tanks, my Chevy 2500HD has a 38 gallon gas tank. 2011 and newer GMs got a much larger tank, and an increase in GVWR. I was slightly annoyed when the 2011s came out. My 2009 has a 34 gallon tank, which still hasn't hit 70k miles, so I have no plans of upgrading trucks any time soon.

RE: V6 Silverados

Why would anyone ever buy something with a little engine to tow with?? Ask the Ford Egoboost owners the same thing. LOL.
