RE: 2019 Northern Lite 10-2

Also, I don’t think it has much to do with Northern Lite. I’m sure they don’t make the awning. So, I’d look for how to replace awning material in a search of youtube and find an example that is similar. There are companies that sell replacement material and they probably have how tos on youtube. Good luck.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

The so called weight police, have a jurisdiction that primarily deals with commercial vehicles, technically a dual wheeled axle can haul 22 thousand pounds and not be overweight the same with the steer axle. Nope. Weight police on this forum is the imaginary group composed of members here who complain about what others are doing. They have no legal standing, but it doesn’t stop them from letting their opinions be known. Thanks for playing. :D

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Some of these posts are strange. I’m not sure they will last.

RE: Who can be the last poster?

Happy Thanksgiving, I don’t want to be last to say it.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

You 2 should go find something productive to do rather than what seems like literally bitsching or bickering in every thread.... Of course, the point was that OP “could” have said what his post was about instead of putting a fake subject with a one word link.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

Probably not even overweight. Depends how you read it. They call SnowCat a "tank minus the weaponry" Tanks weight 30-40 tons, so how do we interpret that? I guess, but the TC probably isn’t adding much to the equation.

RE: Do the Weight Police have jurisdiction off road?

Pretty misleading subject. Any way, the topic title has nothing to do with the article. It’s a truck camper magazine article about a snow cat that has a Cirrus TC on it. So, not a truck, and not what most of us would consider offroad. Probably not even overweight.

RE: Arctic Fox 811 short bed

There is no way they'd work on a short bed truck. Famous last words, but I was talking about what they said they bought, a Mammoth.

RE: Arctic Fox 811 short bed

I don’t think the short bed looks any worse than 11 1/2-12s on long beds. Just wondering, GpnAZ, you did get a long bed for the Mammoth, right?

RE: Winterization of hot water heater?

I just pull/tape the wires because I’m already there when I drain the water. I’m not saying it is the only way, but it does work.

RE: Dodge 1999 3500 Lamarie dually

4 x 6” holes? That’s pretty crazy. If you mean small holes in 4-6 inches, I think that’s fine. Most people use a rubber mat. I’d add one of those and not worry about it once you make sure the holes are protected for rust?

RE: Winterization of hot water heater?

I disconnect one pos/negative connections and tape them up individually ... just to make sure that I/wife don’t accidentally turn it on with no water. If you have an anode, replace it.

RE: New 2021 Host Cascade

Congratulations, looks really nice.

RE: New thermostat question?

Keep in mind that unless you put exactly the same type as someone else with the same setup, and follow their instructions, there may be some trial/error to figure out which wires do what. Of course, if you can replace with the same brand, it’s also probably going to be easier. Not that hard, but just a heads up. I went with a digital that has a huge display and light. Then, I can adjust the heat at high in the dark without putting on reading glasses.

RE: What truck are you using?

Kayteg1, oh my ... you make lots of assumptions, again. Feel free to post a link to anyone who recommends a 20% tongue weight. If he cares, I’m sure Bedlam will give you more details about why you are wrong about his setup. Your constant need to “try” to make everyone think you are a knowledgeable person about every topic here is tiresome.

RE: What truck are you using?

..I tow an 8000 lb enclosed trailer behind my truck camper that adds another 1000 lbs of tongue weight to the rear axle.. 1000 lb tongue on 4 ft stinger will add above 1600 lb to rear axle, so wchich one is it? It wouldn’t matter since he has a 5500. :D

RE: What truck are you using?

Point what part you can't understand? Understand? That’s funny. Just pointing out that what was posted was not at all misinformation. You simply think the actual definition of payload shouldn’t be considered. What you meant was “I don’t think GVWR matters, and only max axle ratings including tires matter.” Your opinions don’t change the definitions of commonly accepted terms. It’s not misinformation because someone disagrees with what “you” would do. And ... that’s silly to think that the definitions are different just because we own TCs.

RE: What truck are you using?

Nothing less than a 1 ton dually will do for a triple slide host camper. If you’re looking for maximum payload a gas engine with a standard cab is the ticket, but a crew cab gasser will get you to 6k of payload. Even with a gasser you may be a little over 14k fully wet and ready to roll, consider yourself informed.. Very typical misinformation on this forum. For truck camper you are using rear axle payload,so weigh of the engine makes no difference. Actually big camper will take load of front axle, so heavier engine is appreciated. Than Crew Cabs take cargo capacity from rear axle. It’s not misinformation at all. It’s simple math. The GVWR is the same for most brands no matter what the truck weighs. Payload is is simply GVWR-weight of truck. If the truck weighs less as in regular cab/gasoline engine, the payload will be more. If you are talking about what is the max load you could potentially carry on the rear axle, you are right that the front has nothing to do with it.

RE: TC Horizontal LP Cylinders

From what I read before, horizontal tanks had different rules regarding certifications. If I remember right, they didn’t need the newer type valves, but if you tank them out, I suppose they are vertical. ;) They are usually found permanently mounted in Class As and some Class Cs. I think there are only a few older TCs that use horizontal tanks, but I’m sure people will point it out if I’m wrong. :D
