RE: Anyone going to Quartzite

We went last year for a few weeks in Jan. Can't this year, left the S&S in Oregon...wishful thinking! https://i.imgur.com/Z3l4g4Dl.jpg

RE: Please help me decide on a truck camper

Northern Lite, hands down. So what if there is wood? Where is the water going to get past the fiberglass shell? Wood is great as long as you keep it dry. Your only potential leaks are at the vents and windows really, and it is unlikely the water is able to run inside the fiberglass construction, it will have to leak into the camper which will be obvious. and EVERY hole that's ever been put in it....lol. If you do proper maint, it isn't a problem, if you don't they will ALL leak and rot.

RE: Rotella for GAS Engines

I use the diesel oil in Red, but it has a flat tappet cam and the new oils aren't designed for that while the diesel oils are.

RE: Please help me decide on a truck camper

Spend a few hours in each without anyone bothering you as if you were camping. That alone will tell you which is better for your situation. That being said ANY RV leaks at the seems if it's not tended to...no matter what ANYONE says...and...if you are diligent with PM you can enjoy years if not decades with a leak-free RV. We rebuilt our S&S 12 years ago and replaced a bunch of wood that had rotted from previous owners failures to maintain it. We check our "seals" twice a year and maintain them....what a surprise...no leaks in 12 years.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

Different strokes. Sometimes all you need to get away is an overnight in your own driveway. We called it "redneck" camping....and the kids were NOT allowed to bug us....lol.

RE: A Question Are you limited to life on pavement

We boondock 90% of the time and have a TC for that reason. NE Oregon in the Whitman National forest...no hookups, just solar. https://i.imgur.com/FK1BXCel.jpg

RE: Tire chains needed?

I carry these: Auto Socks They seem to be allowed chair replacements everywhere and they are very easy to carry. I have never had to use them so I can't comment on how well they work. Those are interesting.....

RE: Bringing extra fresh water.

The 'ol S&S carries 30 gallons, and we've figured out how to go 7-8 days on that if we bring drinking water also. I will outfit the enclosed trailer that I get for the Harley with an under floor fresh and grey tank, along with the giant solar array that will be on the roof and able to plug into the TC that we end up with in retirement.

RE: Arctic Fox's change to cheaper-looking cabinetry ...

That's why there are different manufactures. I looked at the 2020 5er's and TT's and didn't notice anything like that. Go look at something else, we found Lance to be cheesy and bought an AF in 04.

RE: The S&S/Red Restore/Update/Repair Thread

Finished the winter clean and polish. Need to hit a truck stop and get the wheels polished right. Anyone know of one in Southern California? https://i.imgur.com/Y4loT0ml.jpg https://i.imgur.com/25IOWqol.jpg

RE: Tire chains needed?

Red's not a 4x4 but I run A/T's on the rears with a locker. I carry cable chains for just such situations. That being said with 7K on the rear tires and the locker...I've NEVER lost traction in the snow and haven't EVER needed chains except when empty.

RE: The S&S/Red Restore/Update/Repair Thread

Time to get Red ready for winter, she's worked hard this year and has been neglected looks wise. I started to clean and polish her today. Amazing what some polishing compound can do!! The paint is pretty trashed and needs to be redone(rock chips and peeling paint), but still shines up and looks decent from 50' LOL. Got a little over half rubbed out and waxed. I need to turn her around to do the other side, will do that tomorrow when the wife's at work. Still need to polish the wheels, been 12 years since the last time I did it, they held up well, just not real shiny anymore. Still need to polish the bright work and wheels, clean the interior, and do the glass https://i.imgur.com/cuVDQcEl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/IqjyE1rl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/CcyAgFml.jpg

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

Seeing how Red is my cage DD....only when we're going to use it.

RE: The S&S/Red Restore/Update/Repair Thread

Dumped and drained with the pink stuff in the drains. Left it in Oregon so we can bomb up, if we're needed, in the Ranger...MUCH faster and better mpg than Red. Although I can't complain, Red averaged 13 mpg @ 65-70 mph for the 1,135 miles for the ride back to Menifee without the S&S on her. If we need to go back up we'll use it as the "Condo" when we're there. WAY MORE comfy than a pull out couch in the living room, more private too, just can't use the water/sewer systems. Winter has arrived...... https://i.imgur.com/2OG7UD5l.jpg https://i.imgur.com/ldhbp9Dl.jpg

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Gettin Red ready for the trip back to socal I had a "noise" when idling. Turned out to be a bad bearing on the tensioner pulley. Had to order the whole assembly cause the bolt that holds it is frozen solid, it's the original that's 30 years old and the bolt is steel and the assembly is aluminum. The whole thing was only $20.00 more than the new pulley and I'll mess with it when I get home and have more tools and time. We were leaving tomorrow, but that has been pushed to Saturday now...lol. The joys of a 30 year old truck.

Looking at a 2014 Prime Time Crusader 315 RST

Can't seem to find much info on them. There is one local that appears to be in pristine shape with all the bells and whistles. Price is at 24K but I'm sure that can be negotiated. We plan to live in it full time in snow country while tending to our sons family while they go through health issues. Does anyone have any input on them, good or bad?
