RE: Nascar Follies

Jimmie should retire as planned. The way things are going, there will be just as few fans next year if they don't change course.

RE: Suburban furnace not restarting

Could be the furnace or propane. I don’t think it’s the thermostat if it’s starting. Try a different propane tank if you have two. Check to make sure propane works on the stove and burns normally with no popping. Is it getting hot or just running?

I’m not sure. Isn’t the Holiday work celebrated on tomorrow?

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Read my post and sure didn't mean to come across snarky.. I didn’t think you were snarky. :D Any way, I can’t seem to get to all of the pages.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Moot picky point as the OP has a 2020 F350 DRW but anywayz the F350 DRW/F450 pickup both have the same Dana M300 9900 rawr....same number of leaf springs....same leaf thickness.../etc. How did you find this out?

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

The leaf pack is no different than an F450. Just for the record, the spring pack is definitely different on other years. I haven’t looked for the 2020, but probably is different still in the pickup variety. Dramatically different in the F450 chassis models.

RE: Bypassing charger Magnatek 6332

If you are worried about the charger, just buy a small charger for trips or break down and add a solar panel kit. If you think the charger/converter is possibly an issue, don’t risk it or you’ll be buying a battery depending on the warranty. Alternatively, plug in and test it out. If it kills your battery, go get a replacement.. If it doesn’t, you are good to go. Fwiw, I don’t think a bad charger will cause bad cells. More than likely, it would boil the liquid out and kill all of the battery. More than likely the bad cells are from vibration and separating the connection in the battery. Not a battery expert because mine don’t fail much, but I’ve never needed to replace a charger because of a battery with a bad cell on any vehicle/RV I’ve had.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

I like having airbags for the flexibility, so I add those and Energy Suspension extended bump stops to maintain overload contact when I add air to level. If you don’t mind being out of level, I think stock would be fine. You will sag in the rear.

RE: Fridge won't fit

I’m sure there is a “way” to remove the fridge. But, if you’ve worked on anything, you know the engineering is kind of off at times. Not a big deal it’s just the engineers are the QA for engineers and the mechanics and customers should be. :D

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

I did my first trip, a thousand mile trip with no mods on my 2006 F350 SRW. It was fine. I added mods later to make it better and add more room for error. That is, I added 19.5s, Rancho adjustable shocks, etc. I put on similar mods to my F450 only because I wanted the ability to level the rig with a trailer attached.

RE: Arctic Fox 1163 TRUCK CAMPER Full Tour video !

Yes. BUT, these are on BRAND NEW campers! The NEW OWNERS did nothing to cause factory leaks over their beds! I’m not disagreeing. Are you saying Host won’t fix them even though they are under warranty?

RE: Arctic Fox 1163 TRUCK CAMPER Full Tour video !

just because yours is great, doesn’t mean that things stay the same. The article I posted spoke to some VERY SPECIFIC issues that current new owners are having. Again, not old units like yours. Obviously, I know that because I noted that not all campers would be good simply because one is. Similarly, not all are bad because a few are bad. I didn’t mention it, but that would seem like an obvious item that would be warrantied by Host. Based on the experience of watching here, Host seems to go out of their way to repair any unit even when they are damaged by owner. That would be the rest of the story. It’s a fact of life that any individual unit can have issues. That’s the nature of how they are built no matter if they are Northwood or Host. Nobody has answered the one question though. For the similar unit with similar design if possible, how much difference in price are the Northwoods compared to Eagle Cap or Host?

RE: Arctic Fox 1163 TRUCK CAMPER Full Tour video !

Host.....a lot of money for units that leak just like cheaper ones. NO THANKS! I just read this.... www.irv2.com/forums/f33/thoughts-and-opinions-on-eagle-cap-1200-vs-host-mammoth-tc-484899-2.html My Host hasn’t leaked in 14 years of being store outside, so none do. ;) But seriously, you can find bad press on any brand and as previously noted over and over. Quality of one unit doesn’t guarantee the quality of the next unit. I don’t think people buy a Host because they are better quality. They bought them for the innovation and floor plans that other brands just don’t have. In any case, I hear a lot of people buy Northwood to save money. I think for the most part, you save money because you are getting less options. That’s what they tell me when they looked at mine. That’s ok to trade those two things off. Hard to say how much this new type of Arctic Fox will cost compared to an equal optioned Host. Maybe someone has two estimates to compare from dealers who give equally good prices. We know MSRP is a fake number that almost nobody pays.

RE: Fridge won't fit

I don’t know, but I think going out through/in through the dinette window would be easier. At least, I think most windows can come out pretty easily.

RE: Arctic Fox 1163 TRUCK CAMPER Full Tour video !

No, not really "variations of Host". Northwood was building truck campers long before Host. If we are talking campers in general, neither Northwood or Host are in the running. Other manufacturers started 30-40 years before. If we are talking slides, Snow River was first. If we are talking variations of 2 or 3 slides, Host got there first. So yeah, variations of Host designs. I’m not saying you have to agree that first is best, but the fact is they were there first. Northwood is relatively late to the 2 slide or more party. I’ll add that my 2006 built in 2005 was at least a 3rd design change for Host.
