RE: To buy a generator or not...

I don't understand why TC manufacturers don't put in window units like they do the fancy vans..There quieter by far than the roof mounts and in the low 40's for sound db's..A Honda inverter gen will run one with ease in eco mode at 330 watts/compressor running..With my 9.6 Lance in the sun at 106 degree's outside,it kept the inside in the low 70's and blowing cold quiet air.. Compressor engaged and plugged into my Jackery 1000 watt inverter/so-gen.. https://i.imgur.com/6rG87ed.jpg height=640 width=440

RE: Love my truck and camper.

In the spirit of Specta's post and his nice Lance 945 11'3" truck camper,I ran into a Lance 1140 11'6" TC I didn't know they even made this floorplan and in a non-slide..I think I have to have one of these..LOL https://i.imgur.com/TOoKrGQ.jpg height=440 width=540

RE: Love my truck and camper.

It's funny how we each choose the truck camper for our current needs..Having had the big heavy and longer hangover TC's,I opted for a shorter/lower height and width to get into the places I go mostly on back roads with more truck than I need for stability on sidehill-ish roads... https://i.imgur.com/kG7pFbi.jpg height=640 width=440 https://i.imgur.com/I0hVpQg.jpg height=640 width=440 My wife wants a larger truck camper but I remind her we are camping way back in the boonies,not in an RV park.. Nice Specta if it was a Ford..:B

RE: Honda Gen EU2000i and EU2200i Companion

Westinghouse has a kit to hookup two of there inverter generators that also works with the Honda generator..I can parallel my Westinghouse 2200 and my Honda 2000 with it.. YouTube video showing

RE: Mystery Damage to my truck. From the camper??

Maybe your dually brackets are on backwards or upside down..Mine will only go this far towards the cab for travel... https://i.imgur.com/PQ0BctF.jpg height=640 width=440 But going the other direction only a nut stops it from going in farther... https://i.imgur.com/ea9UZhM.jpg height=640 width=440

RE: why i call Li fussy

Not one battery type is perfect for everyone..There are a ton of lifepo4 batteries for under $500 and some under $400 right where SOK batteries($399) started before Will's review and tear down.. I have spent a fair amount of time at -25F in an RV working..Nothing came close to keeping them comfy except wood heat no matter what we did..Liveable but certainly not for the cold blooded and why we just winterized and lived off of bottled water and porta-potti's..LOL My 120ah Lifepo4 is located inside my truck camper so weather is not a concern for me when in use and the quick charging and weight were the determining factors for me taking the plunge to Lifepo4 with a cost similar to a quality lead acid but with more usable amp hours per battery..

RE: Anyone know the payload range of a 1994 GMC?

You didn't say if it was 3500 or 2500 SRW or DRW but my 1994 ford f350 drw payload is 4600 lbs.

RE: Evaporative Coolers for Lance

Mine didn't come work an AC either..I priced them out and decided not to spend that much for a roof AC..I went with a 5K window unit that works far better than the roof AC I had on my last truck camper and it is super quiet compared and my little honda runs out easily on eco mode..

RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

Bigfoot is fiberglass not aluminum . Once you use silicone you cannot change , other caulks will not stick to the residue from silicone It's for a small hole in the siding,not a yearly reseal..It would have been better to see the actual hole then to guess how big etc but regardless silicone gets a bad rep on this forum and the internetas it is...One of my favorite replies to the silicone is junk theme from another poster.. Keystone RV and quite a few other brands use neutral cure silicone caulk on all metal to metal, metal to fiberglass, or metal to plastic joints / seams. Basically everything on the sidewalls except the gutter rails to roof. The only place dicor is used is at a seam that involves roof membrane. Keystone uses Tremco Trempro 645. Its not the silicone you buy at the big box. Dow Corning 790 is another good neutral cure silicone specified for vehicle applications. As with a lot of things on RV boards you need to wade through the BS. Idiots tried in the past to put cheap acetic cure silicone they bought at Big Lots or Ollies over poly or something else, probably without any type of test or prep to know what they were dealing with, and it failed. Then they posted it on some RV board, and away it went LOL.

RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

Bigfoot still uses silicone to this day I think...About every RV shop uses it and I've had and seen many aluminum truck campers and trailers with pin holes from this and that with just a dab of silicone never to leak.. Silicone has its place as Bigfoot industries has proven....I agree to disagree..

RE: 2007 Chevy 2500HD classic/superhitch spare doesn't fit.

I've had two truck campers I had to get a front bumper mount tire carrier and another I just put the spare on the boat tongue..

RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

Small holes or punctures are easily taken care of with a dab of cilicone..

RE: Victron smart shunt

I just installed a Victron smart shunt in our class c. I have two group 27 batteries so in setting up the device I entered 200 in battery capacity, 50% in discharge floor and enabled Soc alarm at 50%. Does this seem right? I have a Victron smart shunt..Yes it sounds right if your batteries are really 100ah each..And as mentioned above,you can choose 50% or whatever for longevity..The secret is to get the true details of your battery to enter into the app for the most accurate results..Ballpark numbers will give you ballpark results..

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

Not advice but I did see on the Victron smart shunt as my battery was charging with a Lifepo4 charger,it would get up to 14.4v then it would drop down to 13.6ish (don't remember exactly) then back up to 14.4v...It did this 3 or 4 times then the lifepo4 charger turned green and shut off. I only "assume" it was balancing...

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

Will Prowse explains somethings very good and others not so much...For someone completely new to lifepo4 he is about the only one trying to explain things... Battleborn capacity test with heat gun

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

In an actual capacity test with a heat gun,Will only got 1156 watt hours or 93+ amp hours out of the Battleborn 100ah battery..I only posted because someone here keeps saying Battleborn is 120ah but test clearly show it is not...

RE: 6 v GC batteries versus 12 v lithium deep cycle batteries

but BattleBorn deliberately derates their 100 amp-hour to 100 from a "real" 120 amp-hour. Please explain this as Will Prowse tore one down and did the math off the actual cells which in turn produced 1305.6 watt hours compared to there advertised 1280...Not that much difference really certainly not 20 amp hours IMHO..
