RE: New AF990 on Assateague Island all by ourselves

Investing in a boat is a smart move with the OSV going to the birds... I kid my wife a pontoon boat is our next purchase: https://truckcamperhq.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/07/TCP21.jpg

RE: New AF990 on Assateague Island all by ourselves

I am catching fish, just not on the OSV at the moment. I am glad to hear someone is having some productive fishing, post some pics of that!

RE: New AF990 on Assateague Island all by ourselves

I believe it's still a few weeks before the first Blue Fish run ( first full moon in May ?? ). and the Spring Striper blitz as well... Don't we all wish, those days are long gone for AI. Now we try to see who catches the largest skate or dogfish.

RE: New AF990 on Assateague Island all by ourselves

Now if you can catch something other than skates :) Almost bought an AF 1150 before I got this 1191. That is a sweet looking setup.

RE: Recommendations for a noob...

Lance has a different connector for going to 7 pin for lights, make sure you have a pigtail to convert it or get the plug setup beforehand. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OtJtt6a0XXI&ab_channel=LanceCamper

RE: Rancho shock question

Yep, grease them up with marine grease when you get them. Mine still turn great after being moved from 2 trucks and 5 years later. Rancho 9000's are the best way to go IMHO. Compare the size of the two shocks, the 9000 is huge and has a lot of dampening ability along with the adjustment.

RE: Lance 1181 Prewired for Solar

You will get more answers over at Lanceowners.org but here is one topic I found on it here: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/30121864.cfm

RE: Arctic Fox 1150 is breaking my 2016 Ford 350 dually

Not hard to switch out beds in these trucks if it gets to that point. The longest part is getting out the bolts that hold it down to the frame if they are rusted. Took me about 3 hours to get my bed off, but that was due to having to cut the bolts off. Putting the new bed on with a lift took about an hour, this is for a DRW.

RE: Arctic Fox 1150 is breaking my 2016 Ford 350 dually

Lance owners have reported this issue as well with the heavy campers. Topics on LOA about it: https://community.lanceowners.org/topic/490087549563883794?reply=490932114694083292#490932114694083292 https://community.lanceowners.org/topic/2016-chevy-silverado-3500hd-truck-bed-is-not-flat https://community.lanceowners.org/topic/how-well-is-the-truck-camper-edges-supported-by-the-truck-bed

Surprised the tag axle guy hasn't posted about how he can solve this.

RE: Front bed dipping with camper help

And the crazy thing is that front crossbar is not sold in the dorman kits. That is why I ended up just getting another rust free bed with all good crossbars.

RE: Front bed dipping with camper help

I had the same issue with my 2002 F350, I ended up buying a used truck bed from a 2006 year with same color and the bed came from Texas with 0 rust on it. Yea I paid $1200 (DRW) for it, but I am now set for a long time. Doing those frame mounts is not an easy job, I started doing it and gave up as you have to have the right tools to do it so it will last.

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

Since this has switched to your home I would install a Blaze King wood stove, they are awesome in smaller rooms since you can run them slow and low with the automatic air regulator it makes burning wood a breeze. Plus they qualify for the tax credits since they burn so clean. https://www.blazeking.com/category/products/wood-stoves/

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

You can see a TC install of a wood stove here: https://www.tinywoodstove.com/the-one-of-a-kind-adventure-rig-basillynch/ I personally wouldn't do it since it uses kindling sized wood and takes up way to much room.

RE: No rear overload spring on my new 2012 Ford F250?

Just sayin’. Read much? The OP has a F250. I have a F250. I offered to the OP how I carry a much heavier camper on my F250. Off topic much? Since you don't seem to have anything to offer, why are you posting on this thread? Just sayin. - Mark0. The trolls are gonna troll, just ignore them.

RE: No rear overload spring on my new 2012 Ford F250?

You can still load it in the bed to get a test fit and check how much drop you get and how your shocks load.

RE: new Ford 7.3 gas with 3.55 axle ratio, does it work?

You guys going on about high RPM's, that is the truck running at max overload in the ROCKIES. Worst case scenario. That IS diesel territory but this is showing if NEEDED the 7.3 can do it as well, just not as pretty. With a TC on the back unless it is some behemoth overloaded TC you won't be running those RPM's. So carry on, yes diesel is better in SOME situations and we know that.

RE: No rear overload spring on my new 2012 Ford F250?

Have you loaded the camper on the truck yet? Plan on getting a roadmaster/hellwig sway bar at the minimum if it doesn't come with one and "maybe" bags. But again I wouldn't go throwing parts at a problem you don't have yet.
