RE: Traveling for Winter Sports

Why couldn't you just leave the trailer connected to your tow vehicle and park where you plan to recreate? That's what I'd do. I would never consider leaving my TT in some parking lot somewhere, and drive off with the tow rig to go play in the snow, unless I was at a campground / RV park. That's the only acceptable place to unhook.

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

many of the flat front trailers also have a tongue that is 6-12" too short depending upon how wide the trucks hips are. Keep this issue in mind when looking at trailers of any type or style True story. Most low end trailer manufacturers do a short tongue on flat front trailers: 36" I need a 48" tongue (A Frame) for ease of cornering with my truck camper. I talk about the 48" A Frame in in this video

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

One question as I will be looking at used trailers as well is how can I tell what type of axle is on the trailer? Leaf spring is clearly visible on a leaf spring trailer. This video of my 6x10 shows a torsion axle. I installed a lift kit in this video.

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

I don't want to have to buy another trailer a year down the road. Buy one size bigger than you need today, then your bases will be covered. Ask me how I know this.

RE: How are your solar panels mounted?

How do you all have your panels mounted on your roof? Does anyone have a set up that allows you to angle in any direction to maximize sun exposure? The panels are screwed to my roof with Dicor sealant under and over the feet (mounts) I'm running panels and mounts from a company in Oregon: www.amsolar.com They have the best mounting system I have seen, and they have stuck with that mounting system for many years. I had them install my panels in 2011. This video shows my system.

Adding an hour meter to a portable generator

I added an hour meter to my portable generator so I can track hours for maintenance. This video shows the process. It's easy to do and shouldn't take more than 10 minutes. There's a lot of variations of hour meters/tachometers available. It was interesting to see the high RPMs that this generator ran at. (not shown in this video)

RE: GM/Chevy 2020 fitment odyssey

My Chevy truck included dummy electrical plugs for the tailgate camera harness. I always jack up the camper extra high to get past the tailgate opening, I only have an inch to spare in each side. I raise teh camper high enough to get the bumped out section of my AF higher than the top of the narrow portion of the tailgate opening. I mention it in this video I have the same issues with SAT radio, so I have never subscribed to it since my truck only see duty while hauling the camper.

RE: Install new cab over curtain in a Bigfoot TC, HOW?

What do you mean by cab over curtain? A device that separates the cabover bed area from thh rest of the camper My Arctic Fox has a curtain - it's a pleated shade type of thing. I used it once to block the A/C from blowing in the bed when I camped in 90 degree heat in Moab. That's the only time I've used it.

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

Buy the tandem. Why? If you buy the single axle and you get to where your craft business either grows (not enough capacity on the single axle) or fails (no longer need a trailer or can find another use for the trailer), you will either have to buy a tandem axle to match the growth or you have a more limited number of uses other than lightweight crafts. Not to mention a better resale value on the tandem trailer. Ditto. Always buy one size bigger than you think you will need.

RE: Removed cord storage

I did a marine style shore power cord inlet upgrade too. Best mod ever.

RE: Interesting times to be shopping for my new truck camper

Not sure if I should just quit looking for now, seeing how businesses are being shut down, state parks, entire states, etc. Washington's governor closed the state effective tomorrow.

RE: Honda EU2000i Generator Shop Notebook

...it is always pretty clean at 100 hrs even when run in the desert. I added a small hour meter like this one to my generator so I can track hours between oil changes. I have a pre-owned EU2000i that still idles bad after rebuilding the carb. I'm about ready to replace the carb on it.

RE: Looking for advice on purchasing a 3/4 or 1 ton pickup

2500 series truck will be sufficient, but there's very little price difference between a 2500 and 3500.

RE: Long Bed

Outdoors RV has a queen sized mattress in nearly all models, so does Arctic Fox. I really like the Outdoors RV 24RLS

RE: Is a tandem axle cargo trailer worth the extra $ over single

Dual axles handle rough roads better. Actually, independent dual axles are even better ! TORSION AXLES! I have a tandem torsion axle trailer. I love it. I replaced a single axle (torsion axle) trailer. Actually I have two tandem torsion axle trailers. Love them both. My 7x12. There's some chit chat about torsion axle trailers in the video.

RE: System X Crystal Ceramic Coating

I’m suspicious of all miracle coatings, polishes and waxes.... Me too. Me three. I was recently at an RV dealer and witnessed the guy doing the new buyer walk through try to convince the buyer to pony up $2500 for their miracle "paint and fabric" protection. He never named the product. He said it needed to be reapplied every 5 years. Usually it's the the finance office people doing all the paperwork trying to con unsuspecting buyers to buy that miracle coating.
