RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck

And almost none of it has anything to do with a truck camper

RE: Tires and Wheels

Ordered the Vision Hauler 81 Wheel 19.5x7.5 8x170 Matte Black today. Now the tires. Currently leaning towards the Toyo M608Z 245/70R. People here to give Toyo's great reviews. I don't put but 10k a year on the truck so I'm hoping they'd last quite a while. Anyone with experience on these or suggestions on others in the 19.5" G or H load range? Live in the Northeast so need all weather. Take the camper out on the beach a fair bit and plan on doing a bit more off the beaten path camping in the next couple of years. Also have at least one cross country planned. 19.5’s are not the best choice for beach travel , especially if required to air down .

RE: Back door hinge

Fellow Avionistas, one of the back door hinges on Argo has broken. I had it welded but it has just broken again. In looking for replacements, I ordered a set from Amazon but they were different dimensions so I returned them. VTS shows a set suitable for mid 60s Shastas but they are not currently available and arrival time is unknown. My question is have any of you replaced those door hinges and, if so, where did you find suitable replacements? Alternatively, do any of you out there in Avionland have a spare hinge or hinges you could sell me? Thanks, Dick Dick, I’m a bit confused . My early 68 has an 1-1/2” piano hinge the entire height . Seems like it would be an easy replacement . All my doors bath , closet, and cabinets have piano hinges .

RE: Gray Water not empty, only 1 gate valve

Thanks for the recommendation, information about the grey water waste is not in my owners manual or the single valve operation procedure. Just states 2 - 38 gal holding tanks. The electronic g/w tank indicator may be faulty but, the tank does not seem to have the 38 gal capacity as indicated. (floor drain in shower overflows) From the manual you do have 2 tanks . One is black/gray waste tank , the second is the fresh water tank . You don’t have separate black and gray tanks .

RE: Covering a truck camper AFTER a snow?

Snow under the cover? Why use the cover at all? Minimal snow... just what I can’t brush off. The reason I’d prefer to put the cover on still is because anticipate we’ll get at least another foot of snow this season. If the temps are consistently below freezing I don’t see what harm any new snow will cause . I would not want to trap snow under the cover . What purpose at that point would the cover serve ?

RE: New Ford 7.3 Gas

The tires on my F350 dually give it 18,000 lb capacity. Rear axle was derated from what I heard. so taxable 14,900lb is way below actual capabilities. That still doesn't show their knowledge about TC use. Please post the stock tires and wheels you have on your f350 drw thatt are rated at 4500 pounds each in dual application.

RE: Timbrens,airbags!

The trucking industry uses airbags. I think there is wisdom in following that lead. I think you are confusing air suspension in trucks with air bags . Not the same at all .

RE: Camper and Skiing

Fwiw I find rather silly people sugesting leaving the windows open to get the moisture out. Heating great outdoors is not my cuppa tea. Drawbacks of using propane I guess Why not get a heater that blows DRY hot air in the first place. I use Espar,dry heat and very eficient..although bit pricey Now fortunately theres much cheaper Chinese diesel available that is exact copy of Espar,so should work just as well hopefully. many RVers convert their rigs to use them https://youtu.be/ogLmROa1o9E https://youtu.be/3j5qW9kKBLM It’s not the traditional propane heater that is causing the moisture , they are vented outdoors , it’s the occupants and the cooking and the washing . Espar is a nice system but it doesn’t solve the moisture problem .

RE: New F350 owner seeks TC information

That 2300 lb Adventurer is dry weight . New ones are a bit heavier .

RE: Flat

As usual this thread is like a dog chasing it’s tail . If you know how to rotate your tires , you know how to change a flat . If you don’t you should learn . Rotating tires is a maintenance item , flats are a what if .

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

:(Got the Victron 712 monitor installed and set up with Bluetooth. I can connect from the house door but not from the Lazyboy . :(

RE: Roadside Breakdown

Just so you don't waste time specify a medium duty wrecker. That will be able to tow you no questions asked. That depends on the camper length. My 12' campers had rear bumper 8 ft behind rear axle and about 8" above pavement. Lifting front wheels 6" would make rear bumper scratching on road holes. If that is the case you could never get it on a ramp truck either . Never saw one that low . Picture ?

RE: Flat

Beats me why anyone would want to try to use a flat bottle jack on a round axle. Or even carry a bottle jack. I already have 4 nice jacks built into the camper. I found they work great when changing a tire. Are you saying you use the camper jacks to lift the truck ? ??

RE: Timbrens,airbags!

Might be easier and cheaper to adjust the headlights

Ah , music to my ears . Thanks

RE: Victron BMS 712 ?

The question was directed to time2roll , his response puzzled me and I don’t think he is using the Victron monitor. I’m encouraged by your experience with cold weather. It seems you can’t contact Victron directly, they advise contacting a distributor .
ticki2 01/31/21 04:01pm Truck Campers
RE: Flat

It all depends on the capacity of the jack . Either way will work .

RE: Victron BMS 712 ?

Is that from experience ? It would lose some value for me as I would like to monitor batteries in sub zero temps .

RE: SRW 3500 Dodge work with a Arctic Fox 811

Regular cab, 6.4L Hemi, 2-wd 5170 payload. Is that for a drw ? There was no configuration for a 3500 srw that went that high on the Ram site .
