RE: Generator start leads

To the original poster. Your correct there is typically no fuse for the generator leads going directly to the battery's. Mine have #2's going back to generator box. But since I don't have a built in unit they are just safed off and not hooked up in the battery compartment.

RE: Generator start leads

What your seeing is just the starting current from the generator motor starting and not the actual load tthat is being served. Any motor starting from a dead stop will do that. Thats why your truck battery's have such a high CCA ( cold cranking amps ) rating. Bigger than a Genny but you get the idea. Just land them on the Pos/Neg terminals and make sure there terminated at the other end and your good to go. You could also use a time delay fuse on the pos lead but not really needed.

RE: Extended warranty experiences

Sorry for your troubles. My suggestion is to drive back to the camper dealer and speak to somebody in person. Any written info on your purchase contract? If it's not spelled out in writing then their just BS'ing you. Face to face usually gets to the bottom line. Good luck.

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

Totally agree on the TV antenna (aka mushroom) every time I go off road I'm just waiting for it to catch on a tree branch. 3 years so good so far...

RE: Quality of new Arctic Fox TC

I also have a 2019 990 that we have had for a little over 3 years. Only had to wait 5 weeks from when I ordered it to when I picked it up. Times have changed a bit yeah? Quality is fine and have had no issues. I have been in Northern Lite's, Bigfoot, Adventure, and Host campers just to pick up any ideas or mods and the 990 is the one to beat for our usage. Having a slide out makes all the difference in the world and never feels like your close quarters. Just an FYI I paid 32k for mine. Didn't get the $4000 Genny and added one for $600 when I got it home. Would purchase again in a heartbeat. Good luck in your search.

RE: VIDEO: Installing new 4400 pound 6+1 rear leaf springs

Smart man to install HD new springs. One of the first things I did when I got my 2019 F350 SRW truck. I took mine to a specialty off road shop ( North County Spring ) to have them swapped out. Cost a little under 2k for the install. Loaded up the camper and dropped it off in the morning and picked it up at the end of the day. Progressive 7 leaf pack is what I got. Truck sits level with camper on and I also have airlift bags that I put about 45lbs in when going off road to smooth out the bumps a bit. The airbags don't actually lift anything they just firm it up.

RE: New sink in 2016 AF811SB

Good job on your install. Got a 2019 990 with a single sink and it's much more functional than having two smaller sinks.

RE: Black tank treatments.

I use the same additives as most of you guys do but I also do something a bit different too. If you ever get bogus readings from your tank level gauge, I know hard to rely on them in the first place but every season I add 5 gallons of H2o directly into the tank via the head and also pour in 50lbs of ice cubes and take it for a short drive. Then I dump the tank and almost anything that was sticking to the insides of the tank are GONE and any smell is also reduced.

RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

What year and kind of truck do you have? I didn't know forklift had any mount that would bolt to the bed as it isn't structural. Only ones I have seen bolted directly to the frame members.

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

To the original poster. Sway is a factor of going laterally side to side. I have a 2019 F350SRW CCLB and I have no issues at all. Mods I have made to get to this point, ( sit down not cheap). 1. New 8 leaf spring pack specifically designed for this camper load. $1,962. 2. Big Rig Sway Bars front and rear. $1000 3. Airlift 5000 airbags w/onboard compressor. $1000 4. Toyo Open Country M/T tires 35'x12.5"x18" and Method NV305HD rims. $3,350 Also have a BDS dual steering stabilizer set-up and are running Fox 2.0's all around. Running without camper around town is fine as it rides better than my buddy's stock 2020 F350 dually. Mine loaded to the hilt is a hair over 5k and I always run with a full H2o tank (59g) as it helps anchor the bottom to the bed and handles better as it counters the weight that sways up top and I have 510w of solar up there too. Just got back from a trip down Baja way and off-road it handled like a charm. Usually air up 40lbs in the bags to smooth out the bumps. Hope you get it squared away.

RE: I had an osh-t moment and now looking for replacement

Went with a buddy a week ago to look at a 2004 Alpenlite cheyenne model. Great shape outside and in but a little dated as it should be. Had generator and a couple of solar panels along with a dry bath which kinda made the inside smaller than we hoped. They were asking 19.5k. So we went to breakast to decide on weather or not for him to purchase and he starts to check his phone , and RV trader... Come to find out a guy up in Oxnard has got a 2006 AF 990 he needs to sell and he says everything is good. So we tell him to hold it and if it checks out it's sold. We then drive 4 1/2 hrs (traffic!) to get there and lo and behold it's dirty and pretty stock. Slideout goes in and out no problems. Generator works fine, A/C is ice cold, furnace and t-stat works good. Frig and freezer are ok along with the stove and oven. ALL the jacks work too. A few corner moldings need some screws and sealing but overall its a 10 structural wise. Oh yeah price is 10.9k. We load the thing up on my buddys truck and drive it home, less traffic thank goodness. Dated interior so my friend is probably gonna drop another 5-7k in upgrades and he's in fat city. Just when it seems like every piece of junk is overpriced and selling like hot cakes sometimes you can find a gem in the rough. Oh and I might be biased, I have a 2019 AF990 and love it. Good luck on your search.

RE: GM/Chevy 2020 fitment odyssey

Sorry for your "need to" mods just to get it to fit for a new truck. I kinda feel guilty. I got a 2019 Ford F350 CCLB SRW and a 2019 Arctic Fox 990 camper and I have a deezee rubber truck bed mat and thats it. Torklifts all around and like you just pop the drivers side front to fuel up and add DEF. No problems loading or fitment. Just load it all the way forward until the bumpers barely touch, lower it down, plug in power cord, secure fastguns, and drive away. Guess I got lucky.

RE: Lance Sagging Cabover

I used to have a 98 Skyline weekender and had a similar issue. My framework was made out of wood with metal flat brackets stapled in the corners. There were cracks in the main frame supports allowing the weight of the structure to make it sag. After removing some corrugated siding and saw what the problem was I closed it back up and sold it to a guy who wanted to have it parked on a flat pad and not even use it on a vehicle. The siding on yours might be what is giving it some strength to keep it from sagging more. Don't let my story scare you mine was worst case. Try to investigate and see the cause of the problem and go from there. Good luck.

RE: Arctic Fox 1150 is breaking my 2016 Ford 350 dually

Avid Fox sorry for your troubles it sucks I get it but I think the easy fix is replace the Happyjack system for a Torklift and any additional problems will be in the rear view. I know the HJ system has brackets or straps that tie down to the frame as well as the bed but your connection points for the camper connect way out on the end so the flex you get (which is natural) is spread out to include the front part of the bed support. The rear is a potential weak point also, Bolted through the bumper, really. What structural support does that have? It flexes a lot I guess. So now you have the camper rocking more than it should causing low spots front and back. Somehow you need to level out the bed to distribute the load evenly. Do you have a SRW or a dually? Torklift as you know have rear supports that attach to the towing hitch (which is structurally engineered) and the front supports go directly to the frame and the tie down arms flex as they should but ALL the load gets distributed to the hitch and frame. To much pressure on the fasteners will put extra stress on your tie down brackets on the camper which is bad. I also have an Af but its a 2019 990. Been hauling it around for almost 3 years on a 2019 F350 SRW CCLB 4x4 6.7L diesel XL edition truck. Installed the Torklift Tie downs with the fast guns to make it easier getting gas. Then I replaced the rear leaf springs with an 8 pack made for the truck and camper weights . Front and Rear Hellwig BR Sway bars, Airlift bags and run Toyo 35" x 12.5" x 18" tires on Method NV305hD 18" x 9" wheels. Rides like a champ. Do quite a bit of off road travels and never had any issues except spilling a beer or two. Good luck on your issue. You'll get it.
