RE: Does my full-time TC plan seem reasonable?

If I were to decide to full time in a truck camper, it would be a tough decision to make deciding between a non slide 865 and a 811 or 990 (with slide). For the stealth parking aspect, a non slide makes the most sense.

RE: Does my full-time TC plan seem reasonable?

A quick scan of this thread and it didn't appear anyone mentioned this young man yet, but he lives in Victoria and is coming close to 2 years as a full timer in his AF 990. Taylor Dzaman full times in his AF990

RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

..... our 2018 GD Imagine 2800BH and it has a WD-8955PEC. The website says it’s a 3-stage that charges at 14.4 volts. I would think that would be adequate for dry camping. Any experiences with these units? Thanks. Only way to truly know what a converter is doing is to buy an amp hour meter to monitor the battery. I prefer the Victron BMV712

RE: Stoped routine

2. As I walk around the TT I will touch each axel and tire surface. Are they warmer/hotter than usual? I touched my wheel hub once and burned my hand. I now use a laser temp thinger to check temps of tires and axles / hubs. They are cheap at Harbor Freight or auto parts stores. That particular trailer had an axle problem of some sort. It was a flat bed car hauler. It ate a tire on a 2000 mile trip. I got frustrated with it and traded it in to the dealer I bought it from for a bigger trailer on the day I took it in to tell them it had an axle problem.

RE: Chevy 1500HD vs. 2500

Question: What was the difference between a Chevy Silverado 1500HD and a 2500? Both have heavy axles and the larger V8. Lower GVWR on the 1500HD. Echoing what DRSteve posted, It was 8600 GVWR. My brother had a 2003 1500HD. I don't think it had the "Powerdome Hood" (as GM called it), which was the taller hood that the 2500HDs have. 2500HD of that era was 9200 GVWR. As far as component differences between the two trucks, I don't know what all was different. I know springs were different, and I think the spring hangers on the frame were taller, I remember this when comparing my 2500HD to his 1500HD. If I remember correctly, the 2500HD came out in 2001. Prior to that the 2500 was a non HD designation, and could have been 8600 GVWR.

RE: 2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

Is that another Ford better Idea? Makes changing the two filters on our 2016 Ram 6.7 look like a piece of cake!! The concept of pulling off those fragile connectors sure seems like a "great design idea".... NOT. The one that the connector broke on, looks like the hose has enough movement that it could break from things moving around under the hood.

2017+ Powerstroke 6.7 Fuel Filter

I stumbled across an interesting video where the owner describes his field fix and spare fittings he now carries. 2017 and newer Powerstroke Fuel Filter For those that owner these newer Fords, is the fuel filter and housing one integrated unit that require removing those three fuel lines to replace the filter?

RE: Saw my first 2020 GMC HD camping this weekend

I'm betting it's a factory test truck. It's just been within the last week or two that automotive journalists attended a media first drive event near Bend, OR, so it seems impossible that trucks are for sale already.

RE: Should I get a 2020 GM 3500 DRW or a 4500?

Well it is getting to be New truck time again. Your blue text is extremely hard to read.

RE: Installing Rieco-Titan Swing Away on AF990?

Loading/unloading on a dually is nerve racking. I double and triple jack to be sure my jacks are out.

RE: Advice on Camper Quality & Choice

Front Windows were notorious for leaking, which would lead to a mostly destroyed front cab-over section.

RE: Questions and Opinions on Rigs

Both trucks can be optioned with dual alternators. How much use are these for the TC? Can you use them to charge batteries or say run the fridge or AC while running down the road? I use my dual alternators to charge going down the road, while running the fridge on AC via the inverter, but it takes a heavy duty charging cable to accomplish it: Video: Truck to truck camper battery charging

RE: Dually Mud Flaps Required?

I was watching youtube and the kydd folks just got a F450 to tow a big 5er. One comment they made was mud flaps are required on a dually. Are they really required by law in some areas? I saw the video too. Video: ADJUSTING to the FORD F450 and RV in SAVANNAH The Only way to know which states require them is to research the State laws concerning tire coverage. Last I checked, in WA State, the only stipulation about mud flaps being required related to where the center line of the axle was in relation to vehicle fender, which is what Bedlam is referring to as well: In my state the rear wheel legally has to have coverage beyond the centerline. I tow behind my truck camper so use flaps that hang even lower to protect the trailer.

RE: Front tire pressure?

I'm getting ready to hit the road again for several months. What is the consensus on proper front tire pressure? Thanks, Do the Chalk Test. Lots of examples on YouTube of how to do it.

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

We used the truck to get around in the park, and of course to go get a lahbstah dinner in Bah Hahbah each evening. :B Those Lahbstahs from Bah Hahbah taste even better with beehya or two. :B:B:B:B

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

I've never unloaded at a camp site in 9.5 years of owning my AF 811. I always have a motorcycle with me, which becomes my recreational activity when camping.
