RE: Microwave for Truck Camper..

Your local walmart.. https://www.walmart.com/ip/Proctor-Silex-0-7-Cu-ft-Black-Digital-Microwave-Oven/464841392 black white or red 9.57" tall. down to black only-other vendors still showThis one is 9.57 high. Won't that work for you? When I installed mine, it was a fraction of an inch too big. So I removed the trim around the opening (no tools required), filed notches in the frame around the opening to clear the microwave feet, put the microwave in place, and replaced the trim. The appearance of the opening looked just like the original--no visual evidence of alterations.

RE: Tie Downs

For ten years we had a Phoenix camper weighing about 1000 lbs in an eight-foot-bed Tundra. The floor of the camper was bolted to the bed of the truck. And we never had a problem with this arrangement.

RE: Sleepy Checking in!

Sleepy, I was looking for you just last night and found that your most recent post was almost a year ago. Thanks for checking in. Glad to hear that you and Janet are still kicking. Sounds like you got your generator problem resolved. Welcome back.

RE: 17" wheels on DRW - is it worth replacing them with 19.5"?

For those of you with 1 ton trucks with 17" DRW's, how do you notice them performing and do you or have you thought about converting to 19.5" wheels.We have 16" DRWs on our Dodge and they perform just fine. And, No, I have never thought about converting to 19.5" wheels.

RE: Tryin to talk the wife into a newer TC......lol.

Except for the side entry, the floor plan looks the same as our Northern Lite 10-2 CD, which we love.

RE: Routes north from Denver

Have you tried State Route 85 to Greeley?On our recent trip we took 85 to Greeley and north to its junction with I-80. It was a huge improvement over I-25. Thanks for the suggestion!If you're willing to do the US 85 route, instead of turning off I-76 at US 85, continue on I-76 to exit 34 ("Kersey Road"). Head north on CR 49 (a four lane road) up to US 34 and head back east four miles to US 85 north. Quicker and you miss all the stop lights on US 85 through Brighton, Ft. Lupton, Evans, etc. It's our preferred route to Greeley from the south.I just looked at your suggested route. Our atlas does not have CR49 marked. But I'm guessing it's the road that heads straight north from Exit 34. We'll have to try that. Thanks. (I'm assuming you meant west not east four miles to US85.)

RE: Pop up camper vs hard sided camper

For ten years we had a Phoenix popup on a Tundra and loved it. It handled like a dream. So why did we change to a hardside? Four reasons: (1) We wanted a bathroom. (2) We wanted a freezer. (3) Popping and dropping the top was getting to be a hassle. (It was muscle powered.) (4) Getting out of bed in the middle of the night was becoming a challenge. (We were both over 65 when we switched.) Yes, the popup had more problems with condensation in cold weather. But we could have lived with that. Now that we have a hardside, we would not want to return to the popup. But we had many happy years in the popup. And it was perfectly fine on a SRW. For the Northern Lite we have now, we prefer a DRW for stability.

RE: Purchasing a truck camper dilemma

Rent a truck with truck camper and see how you like it! For years we thought we wanted a Northern Lite. So we rented one on a new Ford SRW. Within a day or so our minds were made up: We still wanted a Northern Lite but a different model than what we had thought we wanted. And the SRW did not have the stability we wanted. So we wanted a DRW. A new Northern Lite was way out of our price range. And used ones sell quickly. But within weeks we found exactly the NL we wanted. And it was on a DRW truck! The rig was 12 years old but had only 18k miles. The only hitch was that it was several states away. So we flew from Denver to Spokane and drove home in our “new” rig. And it suits us quite well.

RE: Routes north from Denver

Entering and exiting Denver has become a nightmare of late, especially I-25 north. Does anyone have any secrets for maintaining one's sanity when entering or exiting the city's north side?Have you tried State Route 85 to Greeley?On our recent trip we took 85 to Greeley and north to its junction with I-80.

RE: Bighorn National Forest Wyoming

If you are coming up from Colorado - I would suggest you head to Shoshoni from Casper on RT 20 and drive the Wind River Canyon to Thermopolis and on up from there - Just Beautiful. Enjoy the DriveWe took your suggestion and did enjoy the drive.

RE: Modifying an RV toilet to fit your RV

Do the toilets not fit the flange in the floor? Or are the dimensions of the toilets just too large like maybe they hit the wall or the bathtub?Bingo! They hit the wall.

RE: Modifying an RV toilet to fit your RV

What is the make and model of your current throne? Many of the Thetfords are direct replacement. Toilet conversion chartIt's a Thetford, Aqua-Magic IV, I think. The chart says a Bravura should fit. But it doesn't.

RE: Modifying an RV toilet to fit your RV

In what way don't they fit?The bases are too big. For example, the Thetford Bravura base is too wide, and if I remember correctly, the mounting holes are too far from the back wall.

Modifying an RV toilet to fit your RV

Wanting a toilet with an elongated seat in our RV, I looked at everything that Thetford and Dometic had to offer. None would fit. So now I’m wondering about modifying something to fit. Have you altered an RV toilet to fit in your RV? How did that work out?

RE: Which to comprimise on? Toilet or Heat?

A porta potty is a portable, smaller "cassette", easy to store, cheaper alternative for winter camping. Put it in the shower and drain the TC water supply. If you need more capacity, buy two and just carry the second cassette.We have owned two porta potties. Both worked fine for liquid waste. But neither worked for solid waste.

RE: RV-Dump parking sloping the wrong way

Why are we concerned about getting a complete dump? When we are on the road, dump stations are sometimes hard to find. When we do not get a complete dump, we have to look for another dump station a day or two sooner than we would have if we had gotten a complete dump. We would rather spend our time traveling, not looking for dump stations and dumping.

RV-Dump parking sloping the wrong way

Having just returned from a 4-week trip, once again we found that most RV dumps have the same problem: the area where you park your RV does not slope the right way to provide a complete dump. Have you had that experience?

Bighorn National Forest Wyoming

Starting at Buffalo WY, west on US16 to Worland, north to Greybull, east on US14 to IS90. What kind of roads are these? Would driving this loop in the opposite direction be better? If so, why? Would snow likely be a problem in mid-May?
