RE: Tricks to keeps rodents from destroying TC

Stuff steel wool into every crack and crevice they can get into , they won't chew through it . If it snows heavy they can enter at floor level .

RE: Why did the front plug/connection come into being on TCs?

Both Ford and GM and I think also Dodge had Camper Specials since the mid 60's . Early campers that had batteries almost always had them up front for better weight distribution . Coming out the front has the shortest wire run , still does . Just another $.02 .

RE: High Load Rating Wheels

If front spacers will do the trick for you this place will make what ever you want . http://www.wheeladapter.com/ The front studs will be too short but you can replace them with studs from a dually rear . Finding the right wheels with the right dimensions AND a decent weight rating is frustrating to say the least . If you go with the 34.53 tires in the rear what will you use in the front ? I am very interested in what you come up with . Good luck

RE: New tire?

Anything larger than stock with that year chevy dually loaded will rub on the rear without spacers . You can get away with 1/4" spacers and 235/85/16 , but just barely . I happen to like the 235's , but 215's are fine and will exceed all your weight ratings .

RE: Air bags and cat scale shock

Well I don't know what the boat is filled with , just going by the OP's weight slip . My boat, motor, and trailer completely loaded only weighs 3,120 lbs. The gross weight on the slip is misleading, because the wonderful folks operating the scales couldn't grasp the concept of what I was trying to do. They essentially just doubled the weight of the truck, camper, and trailer tongue weight (Trailer axle weight figure). Steer axle was front half of the truck, and the drive axle figure was the rear half. It took them a half our, and me driving across the scales three times to just get a split weight on my front and rear axles. There were three platforms, and the front of my truck fit on one, the rear on the second, and the boat on the third. Should be simple right? Not in Kentucky :D Would have been nice if you clarified that when you posted the weight slip .

RE: Remote Vented Battery Boxes for group 31 Batteries

These seem to be for 6v but might be of interest . http://www.centuryplastics.ca/images/stories/pdfs/Battery_Boxes_Containment_Boxes.pdf

RE: Air bags and cat scale shock

230# is not enough tongue weight for a 9000+ trailer , that's less than 3 percent , 5 to 10 percent is recommended for boat trailers .It is probably the biggest contributor to the porpoising . A weight distributing hitch will help move some of the rear axle weight to the front . You are at or over most of your limits GVWR , GCWR , GRAWR . Air bags will lift the back of the truck but will not necessarily fix all the problems . Take a hard look at all the parameters before deciding on a direction .

RE: Remote Vented Battery Boxes for group 31 Batteries

Depends on how much space you have and the shape . Will they be mounted side to side or end to end ? Most of the off the shelf boxes when I was looking are bulky and didn't work for me . I wound up making my own from SS that I found at the dump , pure luck . If that hadn't happened I was going to use ABS sheet , it's pretty easy to work with ABS cement .

RE: Opinions from 4x4 dually owners on tires

In another thread the OP states his new truck is a F350 4x4 dually with 315's . Must have spacers , he didn't say if the wheels are OEM . OP , if I might suggest , it might be better to keep all of these type questions in one thread as they are all related ( tire size , jack width , MPG ). The information you give in each thread is not complete and adding to the confusion . I think it would yield more helpful responses .

RE: Registering a truck camper

My TC is titled and plated. The annual fees pay for the "free" dump stations at rest areas in my state. Are out of stater's not allowed to dump ?

RE: Advice Needed re Camper Electrical Problem

If you have 14v at the back of the truck you are getting charging to that point . If you are getting 14v at the camper end of the cable extension from the back of the truck that is ok . So the problem is between the camper plug and the batteries . Is there a fuse in the charge line in the camper some place ? Take the camper plug apart and check for burnt , loose or broken charge wire .

RE: Is a truck camper right for me?

In the glove box is a label with option codes , it should list a cargo weight . That's a start .

RE: Distance between jacks with swingout brackets?

Atwood says their swing out brackets add 4" to each side , still not enough . There have been posts in the past of making extensions for these . Looking at your other post those 315's are going to kill your mpg , JMO. You could probably trade them for something more suitable and put money in your pocket , and solve the width problem .

RE: Just finished short trip with new truck....

I agree . It is probably more to protect the truck in fleet life where you have many drivers and often very low gears .

RE: Just finished short trip with new truck....

I find it interesting that for heavy duty use they reduce the torque and HP ratings quite a bit , as in f550 . I would think that hauling a heavy camper qualifies for heavy duty use . It may not be an advantage to have all that zip with the 440HP , although a lot of fun .I'm confused: What do you mean by "they reduce the torque and HP ratings"? Look up the torque and HP ratings for an f350 and then look at the f550 , same 6.7L

RE: Just finished short trip with new truck....

First let me say congrats on a sweet looking rig . I find it interesting that for heavy duty use they reduce the torque and HP ratings quite a bit , as in f550 . I would think that hauling a heavy camper qualifies for heavy duty use . It may not be an advantage to have all that zip with the 440HP , although a lot of fun .
