RE: Water filtration when boondocking

Yah, I hear ya. Probably overkill here, but, One thought is the Berkey Systems, pricey but a good filter, just put on sink... One time expense, worth it to me but I'm full time.. so.. I also have two filters on the hose fill up to tank, just to get rid of any debris..

RE: Slide out to non slide

Yah, I've been full time for last 6+ yrss now and if I were to do it over again, I'd get the single side, no slide... You get used to the space and instead of 3 steps to the kitchen/bath it'd be 2 steps.. I like the extra room but when moving around it's just another step to set up and close.. So, I'd go with the single/no slide if I had to do it over again.. and solar is great on a sunny day but your Honda 2000i will cover the rainy/cloudy days.. I had 2 separate times and they were nice.... and just an FYI, my slide pin broke so it was stuck open.. the shaft is under the rear bench seat. but that was just recently and an easy fix if you know what it is... and able to find and knock out the pin to put in a new one... fun eh??? Happy Trails..

RE: Outdoor camp oven

I had one like that, a boating oven/stove but eventually sold it.. But I've wondered how these were. I have most of CampChef stuff and like them. So? Are burners on the top meaning you should be able to Broil stuff in the over and does it hold oven temps fairly well? outside temps/winds adjusting.. Nice.. thanks..

RE: How To Tear Off Your Truck Camper Jack Made Easy

Well, you'd think they'd put a flag on it or something to alert. As noted above, I just don't think they give a ****.. been coming to the Q winters for last 6 yrs and stopped using them in 2nd year...

RE: How To Tear Off Your Truck Camper Jack Made Easy

Oh Mannnn, I hear ya on the jacks. Ripped 3 of mine at various stages.. and like you, the problem is I can't unload as I'm not sure the jacks will hold.. sigh. Need a forklift on standby before I try it... But I feel your pain.. good luck..

RE: Chassis Cab Ride Quality

Yah, I have the 4.11 and with camper on I just figure 9.5. I tow a SxS 7x18 open trailer and figure 8.5.. so you're right in the ball park...I'm a diesel though.. You might tate a look at the extra fuel tank, I have 70+ and it's great on trips but not so great at the pump.. heheh.. Hope that helps..

RE: Chassis Cab Ride Quality

On wash boarded road, bumpy with camper on back, worse without... I went through the same thing starting with the Newbie 1500 and worked to the 5500.. I went with the 5500 over the 4500 as I felt it's just a better/stronger model, and was only like $1200 difference.. I like it, it's just a little difficult for me, traveling around to find a dealer that can service it... most can take the 3500 no problem but then there's a line.. and few can service the 5500... not a big problem just be aware of it.. and plan accordingly.. Good luck...'

RE: Handy kitchen tip #93

They are also useful for holding computer usb/wires... Get the size you want, clip it to a table top and run the usb/wire through the handle. Keeps them together.. Fun..

RE: Hey F550 5500 flatbed camper or custom bed owners:

Well, I have a, I guess? custom bed but pretty standard from the Mfg, as I have a SxS and needed a 10' be to carry it when needed. I had to have the tie downs for the bed reinforced to the frame so as to attach the tie downs to the rings on the bed instead of the the frame per se.. still attached to frame, but I just hook up to rings in the bed. Suggest back up lights on the back of bed and head board just in case. Might have them put on some side covers to secure gear on the sides. There are probably a few more things but probably wouldn't apply like I have winch to pull up the buggy when needed... and battery storage if going for more batts for Solar... I have mine on the side.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLWYwZ8k33b431cu1E-s8Gw48hdDmG9thv0zm0SILw0KdOQgJrf7AbhrL8h-9ypyt4m7giuhoXN7qFfDESjlVpXylfV19bAOreJGlMN2KF1g3YpU8Nsli2XPP01GH1sv96euO-eCZUXv1bovWkAYOwkNyA=w960-h720-no?authuser=0 and yes, CG is a little off ~5" or less, but 550 frame handles it and no known issues... https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/pw/AM-JKLWYwHPllLLvt9lM5V3oTsLDZeF-yWM_nB1ioGC86ojLa_V0X2hqsQ3Awl_ddG4pgtH4EPAbHAPPi2wo8QvMmajtVjRfR_ySmA-MyCXNhPmePiJkNJhunWVqmpSBccPytikcLN0TX1V4hRcK3651rSRrgg=w640-h480-no?authuser=0 Hope that helps a little..

RE: Fast Gun issue?

... and that's probably the easiest, cheapest way, but Torklift has longer ones unless it's really long... you just unscrew it and screw in a longer on if I recall.. been a while ao, but I 'Think' that works..
