RE: Planing on getting an Arctic Fox TC

Most of us in the Northwest regularly see different models on SRWs. The dry weight of a 8 ft model is under 2900 according to their website. I don’t know, but I think the Wolf Creeks are lighter. Also OP could have a DRW or maybe has a SRW 3500. That image says advisable not recommended. Northwood also makes Wolf Creek. Based on the words in their manuals, they clearly think you can use something other than a DRW. Or, they think DRW capacities are radically different. Anyway, their 2015-2016 manual has the following words. RECOMMENDED METHOD OF TRUCK SELECTION: To estimate the total cargo load which will be placed on the truck add the following: 1. The weight of all passengers in the truck camper 2. The weight of supplies 3. The weight of tools and all other cargo 4. The weight of installed additional or optional truck camper equipment and appliances 5. The truck camper weight figure supplied by the manufacturer–be sure to add weight of options The cargo weight rating for the truck must be equal to or greater than the total cargo load of the maximum combined loaded weight of the truck and camper.

RE: Planing on getting an Arctic Fox TC

No, Northwood doesn’t recommend DRWs for all of their truck campers. I’m thinking you heard that at your local truck dealer. :D

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

Three people in the front seat with a center console with floor shifter is not a solution in my book. It might be ok if the shifter were on the column with no console. Who has a shifter on the floor?

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

I have a front bench as well. It was also useful when DW had to elevate her leg. She just had to turn a little.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

I don't own a Honda, but I've heard plenty. I remember thinking any 2000s I've heard being noisy. Maybe something's wrong with yours if it is noisy.

I think the OP is clicking on Newest or Active, but even those have the Forum listed on the right.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

From the Honda website. All are way below US Forest Service and National Park requirements although they also have generator hours which are not at night. Dry weight of the quiet Honda 3000 is 131 lbs. 57 dB(A) @ rated load, 50 dB(A) @ 1/4 load Dry weight for the light Honda 3000 Handi is 78lbs. 58 dB(A) @ rated load, 52 dB(A) @ 1/4 load Dry weight of a Honda 2200 is 48 lbs. 57 dB(A) @ rated load 48 dB(A) @ 1/4 load.

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

Other than the recent 2200 Honda recall, they are generally bulletproof. If you don’t run it much, try to buy non-ethanol fuel and run Stabil. My wife’s uncle’s Yamaha clone wouldn’t even start my 9000 watt AC. The initial draw was too many amps, and that seems to be the issue with the clones of small size. I agree 3000s and other similars are very heavy in comparison. A 1000 is barely enough to charge batteries through and TC charger. As much as they are, I’d buy a 2200 or used 2000 Honda instead.

RE: Big Brother- Tag on your TC?

So should I move my plate around every time I cross a state line? Naw, just be safe and stay at home. :D

RE: Space between cabover ant antenna

There’s two parts to this question: 1)will you damage the antenna 2)will you get reception. I think 1 is easier than 2. For 2, you might want to consider relocating the antenna.

RE: I'm In College Football Haven Over Here!

I saw the one interview with Burrow before the LSU-FL game. Apparently, Joe Burrow would have played at Nebraska if they had only showed any interest.

RE: Big Brother- Tag on your TC?

With all due respect for TN's laws, keep in mind it's also illegal (in all 50 states) to drive a vehicle without a clearly legible license plate on the rear of the vehicle. I don’t think it means what you think it means. For instance, what if a vehicle is pulling a trailer? What if a motorhome is pulling a toad? What if a tractor is pulling a trailer? What if you have bikes on your bumper or other hitch haul? In other words, there are clearly going to be exceptions that are allowed. Also, as I previously noted, MT DMV said that’s what the front plate is for when I asked what do about my almost covered rear plate.

RE: Onan Cummins Propane Generator

While we are on oil, I switched to synthetic and it was noticeably quieter.

RE: Leaking Roof Lance TC

Probably not much help but from youtube videos, the only way to fix the ceiling material in RVs is to replace it. The videos were talking about how to tell if a RV had/has a leak. They said the ceiling pretty much always are damaged/stained if they leaked. Maybe someone else on youtube shows their ceiling repair or replacement. Probably not a Lance TC, but maybe something with a similar ceiling method/material.

RE: Onan Cummins Propane Generator

If you do some searches in the archives, there are some maintenance guides. I don’t have the links handy.

RE: Best way to install extra propane

How are you determining full? LED's work? Are these led acid/AGM? ... running the generator for several hours or a decent solar array which in good weather will keep the battery from becoming low and in need of a long charging effort to 100% full. As noted, I’m going by my LEDs and they are lead acid maintenance free because that’s what was available at Yellowstone 3 years ago when they basically failed. I’m happy with that level of durability. I’m not a full timer, but I have had my current camper/charger for over 13 years. It seems to be fine even if it isn’t perfect. In practice, it doesn’t really matter if they are “fully” charged or not. But, you need sun to charge with solar, so I don’t think there is any guarantee it will fully charge either. It would depend on when you discharged and the charging conditions. For instance, if you were fully charged during the day, solar wouldn’t do anything for you at night/evening if you ran your batteries down. Similarly, solar wouldn’t do a lot for an overcast/rainy/snowy day. However, I could run my generator for a while as long as I had propane either during the day or night and in spite of the weather. Seems like you found something that works for you. What I’ve been doing works for me. It’s up to others to determine what works best for each of them.

RE: why am I still getting this

The ultimate fix is definitely on their servers, but it doesn’t mean that some of our settings don’t make it worse for some of us. Sounds like they need some testing before they roll out changes as well as at least a daily test run to find their own issues.

RE: Best way to install extra propane

Running a propane generator to charge the batteries is slow and consumes a lot of propane. Sounds like a converter/charger issue. I can usually take my two batteries from a low battery to full charge in 30 minutes to 1 hr. Not exactly scientific, but my leds are fully lit.

I just thought he meant roof. What ceiling bubbles?
