RE: Water filtration when boondocking

https://i.postimg.cc/y8c8SpDh/IMG-9627.jpg I am fortunate because when I go camping I take my ATV along so I always have a small trailer in tow. I can take two of these 15 gallon barrels with me so that gives me about 70 gallons of fresh water total. https://i.postimg.cc/RZSvNCzm/IMG-9744.jpg I bought this submersible 12v pump. It will pump just about any liquid, water, gasoline, diesel fuel and other thin liquids. I think it was about $10, eBay or Amazon. I can't remember. https://i.postimg.cc/R0v4JS59/IMG-9743.jpg I attached the pump to a piece of PVC and a 25ft hose to the other end. https://i.postimg.cc/PrN4hYCn/IMG-9628.jpg I bought this 12v battery for $10 about 4-5 years ago and it will still pump both FW barrels into my camper. This has always worked well for me and I've never run out of FW. I don't know why you couldn't do something similar. Draining the gray tank is another topic, one that starts wars. :B

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/mrpzmY3Y/IMG-8871.jpg I painted the rear bumper with Rustoleum Hammered Gray, it didn't really look right. https://i.postimg.cc/k5GDRVrB/IMG-8876.jpg So I bought a can of Rustoleum Hammered Silver. The left side is gray and the right side is silver. https://i.postimg.cc/k5RqdW3F/IMG-8887.jpg I'm liking the silver better.

RE: Bought a second truck.

https://i.postimg.cc/N0j4vsr9/IMG-8836-P2.jpg I keep the larger chain in this canvas bag but I like the ide of small tool bags better so I'll be getting two. Thanks again.

RE: Bought a second truck.

A bucket will hold the chain, make it easy to get out of truck without hammering on the body. A cheap tool bag works just as well, and takes up less space. Thanks for the ideas. Looks like a tool bag goes on the list today.

https://i.postimg.cc/vmkzT6vd/IMG-8670.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/wMccw4Y6/IMG-8672.jpg My LF turn signal didn't work so I replaced the socket and now they all work. :) https://i.postimg.cc/153qx3p0/IMG-8807.jpg I also replaced the RR backup socket so now all the lights function normally. https://i.postimg.cc/k4wgwWY0/Rust-1.jpg I also bought a can of Rust-eze Medicated Bumper Ointment and cleaned up my back bumper. ;) https://i.postimg.cc/WbqsJRjL/IMG-8824.jpg After I got the bumper cleaned up I painted it. https://i.postimg.cc/QMd8CFdS/IMG-8825.jpg And added my new license plate frame. :C

RE: should I be using a stand when not in use

https://i.postimg.cc/MTpj3JZz/IMG-3800.jpg Mine rests on cinder blocks when its not on the truck. I don't have a good reason why other than I don't like it being stored on the jacks alone.

RE: Tailgate for a truck camper

And to my point, newer trucks tailgates are significantly thicker, heavier and better built than the 70s-80s models of trucks. Back in the 70s Ford used to advertise that their tailgates could support up to 2000 lbs. I'd be willing to bet that the tailgate on my 1976 F-250 would support more weight than the tailgate on my 2011 Chevy.

RE: Bought a second truck.

So if you decide to set a price, be sure it is high enough. I hope that never happens. ;)

RE: Bought a second truck.

Like the boat give them a number that is high enough if they say Yes your walking away with more than you thought you could ever get. I'm going to come up with a figure and try that next time.

RE: Bought a second truck.

I got another offer today from a guy who wants to buy my truck. I guess I'm going to have to get a "Truck Not For Sale" sign for it. :B Or, you can give him a ridiculous number it would take to buy it. My dad bought and sold boats when he was still with us. He finally got one that he really loved and enjoyed fishing out of so he kept it. There was a guy up the street that would stop and try to buy it periodically and dad would always tell him it wasn't for sale. The guy kept saying "What will it take?", so finally dad told him a number that was probably 3X the value. Of course the guy said "It's not worth that much." Dad simply said "It is to me." Guy never stopped again. That's awesome. I really have no idea what it would take. It would have to be enough money that I could buy a lot newer and nicer truck for sure so that's never going to happen.

RE: Bought a second truck.

Definitely not an 80's rim. I think they're from the 2nd gen Dodges starting in '94. I can guarantee you that you're closer than me. :B

RE: Bought a second truck.

First thing I said to myself was, those on Dodge RAM wheels! Yep Dodge wheels. Those look like 1990's Dodge wheels. I believe they are late 80s early 90s. They were on the truck when I bought it and they cleaned up real nice and I think they look great so I'm keeping them on it. :) Besides, I was having a difficult time finding factory 16" wheels.

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

Well, there have been times when a tire spinning did not fell real stable. And a skid? That can make you grab a double handful of seat, with both hands on the steering wheel This is true. :)

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

https://i.postimg.cc/7L8mXq5j/002.jpg When I bought my current truck I was anticipating on getting a TC for it, I just didn't know that I would end up with such a big and heavy camper. We used to haul out snowcat with this 2007 regular cab 3500 4-wd with the 8.1L gas engine. If I could find one just like this one I would buy it. Guarantee it would do a much better hauling my camper in every way. Especially if a rear tire blew out.
