RE: Making A Warmer Truck Camper Bed

I think you will find that the foil face insulation directly under the mattress will still condensate , the moisture comes from you body . Better to put the insulation directly on the cab over floor and then the latttice on the insulation for circulation , then the mattress .

RE: New polar cub Mach 8 AC and the Honda eu2000i question

From most reports 2 Honda eu2000i running in parallel are about 3 db more than a single running in the same mode . There are times when the 2 will be quieter than the single depending my on the load for instance, if the load is such that the 2 can stay in ECO mode and the single would have to go to full rpm to supply the load . In the example of the two 2000 weighing 88 lbs and 3000 weighing 131 lbs one must remember the 88 lbs is in two bundles of 44lbs which most can lift and handle , not many can do the same with 131 lbs . You also get 25 percent more capacity with the twins for less money .

RE: Camper Battery doesnt charge while going down the road

Buy a test light or voltmeter and check the charge line at the plug. Once it is charging you may need to use larger wire for faster charging. You need to test the voltage AT THE HOUSE BATTERY after the engine has been running for 5-10 minutes. You will be surprised how low t s. Low voltage is one thing , no voltage is a different problem

RE: Jack leg help - Happi jac

You might try checking for circuit board repair near you . There are a number of places that test and repair all types of printed circuits .

RE: range hood exhaust fan?

I installed a 6" computer fan and it is very quiet now. Make sure that the one you get is 12 volts. I did the same thing . It is not as powerful as the original but only draws about 0.5 amps instead of 3+ amps like the original . It gets rid of the steam from making coffee or pasta on the stove and is very quiet .

RE: So many questions

So the camper didn’t have to be raised higher to clear the flip up truck cab

RE: Antifreeze NOT Bypassing Water Heater

I have two valves , one a t the bottom to let cold water enter the water heater and one at the top for hot water to exit . The handles of the valve face the water heater when it’s in use . To bypass the heater both handles face inline with the horizontal pipes . This shuts off the water tank but allows cold water to flow in both hot and cold faucets .

RE: Big Foot Truck Camper NO taillights. Any ideas?

What do you mean by cleaned and resealed the camper to truck cable . Did you take the plugs apart and check the internal wire connections . Did you check with a test light the terminals on the female bed plug . If they all work the problem is on the camper side , if they don’t it’s on the truck side .

RE: Big Foot Truck Camper NO taillights. Any ideas?

Some trucks have separate fuses for truck lights and trailer/camper lights , check them if you have them . More likely corrosion in the male or female plugs from truck to camper . Take apart and clean .

RE: Heki 2 Skylight Inner Frame Failure

Correction. The connection points are part of the inside surface of the exterior frame (not the interior frame). The more I look at it, I’m considering running a 1” wide piece of aluminum bar stock (as thin as practical) down either the inside or outside of the exterior frame plastic channel the piece broke from, and riveting it to that channel. If I place the aluminum stock on the outer surface of that channel, I may be able to reuse the broken piece’s connection point. I could also run a piece of aluminum stock down the inside of the track as well, sandwiching the plastic channel wall between the aluminum. This is the approach I would use . I would use an adhesive but not rely on it alone having the forces of the lock lip on it . Sandwiched with aluminum and riveted will probably hold up , you can only try , I have use similar repair on other projects with success . Good luck .

RE: Camping 3 months with single 100Ah Lithium

So let’s add to the informative discussion by comparing a sedan starting battery with a 100ah lithium and call it equal .

RE: Putting some glide in the ride….

When sitting in the truck seats you are between the front and rear axles which give the best ride . When in the camper while driving you are close to being directly over the rear axle which will be the roughest ride . Same as on a boat .

RE: Battery Question

Take it out of storage at -37 and let me know how that works for you. I sure would like to know your routine after you take your camper out of storage at -37 to warm the interior up to a reasonable temperature , with what heat source , and how long it takes . he has a motorhome, lots of room and payload capability for batteries, probably just starts the furnace while he drives. the weight and spae limitations of a camper mean nothing to him. Steve I am well aware of his rv , it is listed in his signature . I imagine he would heat the interior with the engine heater , at least at first . A truck camper does not have that ability , it would have to rely on the furnace or electric if shore power was available.. I also know from experience it takes a lot of heat to warm up the interior of a camper starting at -37C . That is why I was curios how the poster was accomplishing the above .

RE: Australian Truck Campers are dramatically growing

It’s amazing how some folk judge the quality of something from a picture on a web site without any first hand knowledge . There also never seems to be a price mentioned for these superior campers to know what or who would be a reasonable competitor.
