RE: Antifreeze NOT Bypassing Water Heater

There should be 3 valves to turn, close the cold going into the tank and the hot going out and open the bybass. that will circulate around the tank.

RE: Okanagan truck camper

We purchased an Okanagan 116 Ultimate Suite new back in 2004, The binder only had manuals and warranty books for the supplied appliances and equipment, nothing really for the camper itself other than the warranty card. What were you looking for?

RE: Custom truck camper tie down mounts?

Take some pics of the tie down brackets on the camper and post them, Has anyone actually looked at how those brackets are attached to the camper? Mine were screwed to the bottom with 4 #8 wood screws, I have seen some that are attached with a couple ¼” lag bolts. I am also guilty of over doing the tie down process, welded brackets out of 1 ½” X ¼” wall square tubbing on ½” flat iron, bolded to the truck frame. If that camper is going to get knocked out or off of your truck, you don’t want it tied down to the point where it’s going to take your frame or bumper with it. (Let it go) I have been hauling an 11.5 camper for 17 years now with just the front tied down (nothing on the back). Never had a problem with is moving in the box, I’m pretty sure the weight of the camper itself with a non-skid mat in the box it isn’t going anywhere. Ya one of these days the cops are going to give me sh&&, I have gone through Montana with no problems, just that my plate is on the truck not the back of the camper. Maybe with the lighter models, but as I said, look at how the brackets are attached to the camper itself. (4 #8 wood screws wouldn’t hold sh&& ) That will tell me how well it needs to be secured. Just saying

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

Cab and chassis has flat frame (heavier) all the way back from the cab, and standard frame width, box delete has hump where the rear axle is. If you want to mount a deck, get the cab and chassis model, all manufactured decks will fit the frame. Check frame to cab height and build accordingly.

RE: Are you towing with a flatbed?

I just extent the trailer hitch instead of a receiver extension, that works fine for me. https://i.postimg.cc/cgj6qrwc/20190504-123339.jpg Wes

RE: Timbrens,airbags!

The trucking industry uses airbags. I think there is wisdom in following that lead. Not even close to being the same thing. However the bounce you see will be the same. Watch a semi trailer as it bounces up and down while going down the highway, who want's that? You could not be more wrong with that statement! that truck you seen “Bouncing up and down” was not maintained properly, everyone knows that your shocks will stop that. I have been driving trucks for 46 years, the best suspension on the road is air ride! How much money do you want to spend and how long do you plan on keeping your truck? Go to Kelderman air ride systems and check out their website. I installed the full 4 link system in my Ford with the front air system too. It is truly the best on the road! Rides level when empty or loaded to the max. smooth ride with no bounce. They supply a super duty sway bar that is twice the size of factory so there is no sway at all. With all the money spent on air bag helpers, heavier leafs and shocks, spring stoppers, and all the other “Patches” you could buy a system that works perfect all the way around. Just saying. Good Luck Wes
