RE: Electric Jacks

Not sure who sold the most, but from what I’ve heard here, it seemed Atwood had better customer service. I think that makes people more tolerant of failures. My 13 year old jacks have had two issues. One remote controller died at about the 2-3 year mark. The switch to turn them on is intermittent. A shot of WD40 seems to get it working again.

RE: lower front hitch on 2000 f250 clearence ?

I think he’s saying that they aren’t made for snow plows front hitchs etc, but that would be wrong. :) My truck has a rating for the front axle, and I’m pretty under. Unclear if OPs does have a rating or not. It seems many people carry items on their front hitches without issue, so I’d call it pretty safe. I have the opposite problem for my front hitch. It’s low, so I have to add a raise or it’s extremely low. That’s an issue with driveway transitions and low curbs.

RE: Has anyone replaced a hot water tank with an instant hot?

There are instant heaters used in Class Bs for sure. I think it should probably work fine. Some of the ones I’ve seen have a small pint/quart reservoir, and my guess is they cost barely more than a standard one. That being said, I don’t really have a problem with a standard model, and it is still fine after 13 years. I think I’d run out of water before I ran out of hot water unless on city hookups with unlimited dump ability. One more thing from FitRV that talks about the RV models that have them as of about 2 years ago or hybrid models that heat RVs as well. https://www.thefitrv.com/rv-tips/truma-takes-over-the-world-of-rv-heat-and-hot-water-at-least/

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

I think people have pointed out why they remove their TC. I did. We almost always leave ours on, too.

RE: Cross-Country Trip TC Ticker

Sounds like a great trip. TCs are cargo in MT, so they don’t have plates. I don’t know about the other states. I’m surprised you saw zero or one Host. What states did you visit? Also, did you stay in private campgrounds, govt run campgrounds, or did you boondock?

RE: RVTrader No Response

People create fake profiles on FB all of the time. Also, it means that you can only sell to someone with a FB profile. That being said, I’ve bought stuff on FB marketplace, but then, I have a FB account.

RE: VIN for cabover camper

Are there any numbers on the bill of sale or does it have a title?

RE: Cargo Trailer Shopping

I don’t think all trailers are the same. There are a few brands that are pretty good though. So, instead of just buying “any” trailer, buy one that has a track record even if you buy a used one.

Maybe they are out camping.

RE: What am I missing on GVWR??

Cassettes might be easier to empty although I can handle a dump hose without any issues, but you’d also have to empty a cassette many more times unless you have a tiny black holding tank and still have to deal with your grey water assuming you will have some. If that means hooking up the dump hose, cassette would actually be an additional step.

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

A truck with TC is definitely an RV at Yellowstone both for camping (no camping in tent spaces) and also for driving down roads. I can’t say about other parks might say. I do know what the rangers and people you do reservations say though at Yellowstone.

RE: Do you unload when you camp? Really?

We don’t usually, but here we are in Yellowstone Canyon Campground a couple of years ago. On this trip, we had to take the TC off to drive down the no RV roads in the park. https://i.imgur.com/vI8sKYil.jpg

RE: What are my TC options for towing?

Congrats. I have fast guns, so it isn't a big deal to take the one tiedown loose to fill up.

RE: What am I missing on GVWR??

The Cirrus is a way better built camper than the Northstar. Plus the Cirrus doesn't have a cassette toilet, meaning you can swap the crapper out in the cirrus for a better composting toilet. What's better?

RE: Do I need to worry about this butyl?

I’d ask Northstar since it’s not very old.

Would have been impressed if it was real time. :D

RE: TC Options for My F250

lonegunman, I don’t believe 99% of the TCs are on SRWs. They also don’t all make it. Tires do blow up when overloaded. Fyi, I carried my TC 1000 miles without an issue bone stock, but thought it made sense to spend 2300 on wheels/tires to give a bigger safety margin. Then, I kept it 8 years. I also sold my takeoffs for 500 not a great sell, but brought the upgrade to under 2K. :) I also think you should start shopping somewhere else if tires/wheels/shocks cost $15K and your SRWs cost 80K. :D

RE: What am I missing on GVWR??

Contrary to what the weight weirdos here will tell you. I think you meant “weight police”. :D

RE: What are my TC options for towing?

One note about the tailgate: I don’t know if you’ve removed yours, but some are very heavy. My F450 has the tailgate assist and step so it’s about 90 lbs. Getting it through the door and going up the steps might not be as easy as you think. Also putting it on the bed means you can’t take a nap on the bed if you change your mind.
