RE: Making A Warmer Truck Camper Bed

We use Reflectix in the cabinets and under the mattress. We use removable Reflectix for the Windows and skylights. We made a small bag to store the removable parts. Makes quite a difference. We do use a memory foam pad on top of the mattress. We don't have a condensation issue. Maybe we don't breath enough. :D

RE: HOST Yukon Dump Valve Location

I’ve had a few times that I wanted a valve higher. Just curious, what problems are you thinking being high causes?

I'm glad they are ok.

RE: Purchasing Warped Roof 1997 Bigfoot 2500 9’6”?

I think if it were me I would go to a fiberglass forum, not a wood n stick camper forum for advice. I'm not sure why you are discounting the fiberglass owners who actually own TCs here. There are a quite a few. Many have owned them for years. Of course, most RV owners have experience with only one TC. If you think fiberglass last forever, then it would me most have very small reasons to get a second one. Finally, many of the people here have friends with TCs of all types. Like most forums, there are people who know nothing of what they are talking about no matter which type of TC construction they own. Others, can provide useful information after years of interactions with TC owners of all types.

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

Seems like every Honda 2000 issue I've ever heard about are all in this one thread. :D

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

Congratulations, but a little funny that you said you didn't want to wait until March and two posts later you want to wait until March.

RE: Purchasing Warped Roof 1997 Bigfoot 2500 9’6”?

Clam shell TCs leak at the same place that other TCs leak. That is, they leak around lights, skylights, vents, etc. Once they get wet, they are just as bad as other TCs. Even fiberglass boats can leak around through hulls. I think it would be possible to build up the low area though, but let's not pretend that clamshell fiberglass campers are perfect. Then, there is the major limitation of clamshells for some of us. That is, they have very limited space inside compared to a TC with slides. If one design was perfect for everyone, there would be only one. :D

RE: A new adventure for me.

I am new to truck campers, so there is a lot I don't know. But curious about the tiedowns. Looks like a big camper to be just attached just to the bed and not the frame. I know with my Cirrus 820 and an aluminum body truck I wouldn't want to do it. Believe it or not. Happy Jack was the recommended brand for Lance at least years ago. I don't know if they still are or not. Lance has done a few things differently including their front struts.

RE: Brain probe for 19.5 x 7.5 rims and 16" F450 Front Brakes

Ford-trucks.com might be able to help. According to guys on the Mustang forum, going to a larger rotor is pretty simple for those. You change the Caliper which already has the right offset and change the rotor. I have no idea if something similar is possible for a Super Duty, but it might be. I was thinking my F450 has 10 lugs, but you may be talking about the models that had equivalent front/rear as the F350.

RE: Host Mammoth Floor Insulation

I don't have a Mammoth. We use removable rugs/runners. If you haven't tried that, it's something that helps.

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

I would go with the honda eu3000i or the lighter version of the eu3000i. What is this lighter version you are talking about ? Even if it was lighter, it's still going to be a lot heavier than a 2200. I think it would be double the weight which is too much for most of us to move around very much.

RE: Wolf Creek/Arctic Fox heater hose mod

That's interesting. Did you look to see if the ducting has come loose underneath or ask Wolf Creek/Northwood about the ducting?

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

Well we are still waiting for our Host Cascade. Who would have ever thought it would be this long. Hopefully we will get a call before Christmas. Barry Good luck! I'll cross my fingers for you.

RE: Renting My Truck Camper

TCs and most RVs in general aren’t very durable. All I’d say is make sure you get enough money to cover the damage.

RE: So many questions

Simplest answer is usually the correct one. I'd say photoshop. Other than that it was mounted in reverse because it wouldn't clear the cab.

RE: Really Struggling to Decide on spot for diesel heater

Mr Heater says on their website if they are safe or not. YMMV, but I think they are ok. ttps://www.mrheater.com/portable-buddy-heater.html

RE: Antifreeze NOT Bypassing Water Heater

On second thought, I have two. One at the water pump at the front of the TC and pickup from the RV Antifreeze bottle and one to bypass the water heater inside.

RE: Antifreeze NOT Bypassing Water Heater

Mine only has one valve. I guess it's possible to be bad. Mine is not plastic.

RE: Big Foot Truck Camper NO taillights. Any ideas?

I don't know about yours, but there are a lot of fuses on my 2010 Ford that are related to trailer lights. I'd try seeing if you can find all of the fuses that are part of it. If you have a test plug try it, if you don't, check to see if any power is making it to connection when the lights are on. One more thing, my TC dealer wired my previous truck wrong. I guess because the plug on the TC was wrong. In any case, there were identically wrong. That required me to rewire after getting a different truck. You don't say if this is a new to you truck or camper, or at least I didn't decipher it. One more thought, sometimes fuses can look mostly ok, but are still bad, so if you don't have a fuse tester use a multimeter or similar to test them.
