Happi Jacks

I have a 2019 Northern Lite with the new style happy jacks the motor is mounted on top of the jack unlike the older model where the motor lay to one side. The passenger rear has a problem when I try to lower the camper onto the truck when that jack is activated there is a beeping sound that seems to be located near the board the jack works well raising the camper off the truck but I have been having to lower the one jack by hand crank, any suggestions?

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

The so called weight police, have a jurisdiction that primarily deals with commercial vehicles, technically a dual wheeled axle can haul 22 thousand pounds and not be overweight the same with the steer axle. That does not mean you can haul that weight it is a guide for commercial vehicles there is also a bridge law (nothing to do with actual bridges) the distance between the front axle and drive axles and then the rear trailer axles, 22 thousand pounds usually can never be shifted to the steer axle cab over trucks usually can shift more than a conventional tractor, the overall weight of most tractor trailer trucks is a maximum of 80 thousand pounds. I doubt any state scale house or officers with portable scales have ever stopped any truck and camper and checked their gross vehicle weight sticker. If your rig wobbles uncontrollable or your bumper is dragging the ground you might get stopped for a safety violation. If you drive through a state weigh station in a R.V. they usually wave you on unless you pull to the side and they are not busy with trucks backed up then they will weigh you give you a print out and say goodby

2019 Northern Lite 10-2

the shade inside the camper by the sink began to discolor, Northern Lite sent a new one including frame, Northern Lite did this after seeing pictures without me asking I just wanted a opinion on what might have caused it. Northern Lite was great on promptly shipping a new one. Now the problem no directions to get to the screws that hold the frame and blind on the wall how do you take the sides on top off the old blind, do they just pry off with a push from a putty knife, or is there a easier way. This is our first Northern Lite, and it has not been used much because of a house fire that consumed most of last year and this year so far but that disaster headache is over now. I ned to fix my blind in the camper and take some time away from the farm.

utility bed for truck camper

I saw a truck camper on a truck with a utility bed, the extra storage really made me interested. the storage compartments would really come in handy, in the front left and right storage compartments the owner had a ten gallon propane tank with hoses running into the compartment on the truck camper that held the small five gallon tanks. the rubber hoses connected to the regulator on the truck camper. that in itself was a big plus for long term boon docking the other compartments were used for storage of items such as leveling blocks and other useful items. has anyone have pictures of a utility bed with a truck camper on it. does anyone know of a reputable builder?

RE: Best truck for Northern Lite 10-2

I ix it all air bags super springs, timbres, you na it I tried it . Then I talked to a real expert, and who is a real expert when it comes to suspension on vehicles. Truck Campr sales lots have the easy to install things that make them money ( mostly) A Suspension shop are experts fro small to large trucks. I was told a story about superstrings that were put on ambulances. turned out not to be the very best solution, same with the other little goodies. A shop that specializes in everything from ambulances, truck campers semi trucks one shop in my arenas been in business for 55 years they do work for the local cities ,counties the state, and private enterprise. my truck was a 2007 dually long bed, over the years the springs were out of factory specs. they put the springs back to factory specifications, then he added a extra spring in the middle. All this was done with the camper on the truck it does not sag bounce porpoise any of those weird things you here about on forums. If you want expert work see a expert

RE: Looking into a Truck Camper

I use to have a class C 2018, with azdel. In the nose there was almost a undetectable crack in the caulking, on the roof the warranty had expired by seven months two R. V. repair shops looked at it the cheapest was eleven thousand, and both companies said they could not match the interior cloth and wall pieces. I went to the factory in Indiana they have a warranty section there. We live in Georgia. The head of the department looked it over and said the unit should have not left the factory with such a poor job on the caulking on the roof part over the driving compartment. Forest River has a campground where you can stay at night for free. I would drive it over to the warranty work area and at the end of the day they would bring it back. Until they decided every thing should be replaced including framing that they did some welding on it was torn back more than half of the motorhome. They would show us what they had done at the end of every day. We were in a motel by then. At the completion of the job they walked us through to see if we were satisfied. I was asked where our spare tire was it did not come with one the dealer had told us. Well we got a new spare tire and wheel they did a few extra things to the unit that we asked for to make it more enjoyable for us. Many of the things they did besides the roof would not have been covered by any warranty I expected to pay for at least some of the work. The shop manager smiled and said go and have some fun in your motorhome (which was better than new) there was NO CHARGE FOR ANY OF THE THINGS THEY DID. POINT TO MAKE AZDEL WILL DELAMINATE. Forest river is great one of the remarks that was made when I thought we would have to pay at least something was "you went to the trouble to bring it back to us at the factory so no charge for anything

Northern lite blind

Due to a house fire we only got to use our 2019 10-2 dry bath once bringing it home. I winterized it and kept a large house size dehumidifier on 24 hrs a day. the stove and sink have yet to be used. The blind behind the stove developed a silver dollar sized white spot. I brushed it with a soft brush it is not mildew or any type of mold. Northern Lite had no idea what caused this strange reaction either. Northern Lite provided better service than I ever thought possible, U P S delivered a new complete blind. have not took it out of the box yet has anyone else ever replaced the blind in a newer northern lite? I sure would like to know what caused the problem I will try to insert a picture of the old blind thanks NORTHERN LITE.
