RE: Rancho shock question

worse junk I ever put installed on my 2015 Ram 3500. I actually returned them under the 30 day free test drive. The rear of the truck would start to osculate on frost heave bumps in the road and only to slow down would stop the osculation after it started. and I kept going over the bump to try every setting, nothing worked accept putting the brand new stock shocks back on. on my MBS MH I went with Fox 2.0 rear shocks that were valved by Agile Offroad (he also had a MBS motorhome and valved them for his MBS motorhome. he liked the results so well he started to sell them.) Best investment I ever made on shocks.

RE: Confusion About 12V Disconnect

most installs the solar controller will charge the batteries even with the battery switch turned off. The battery switch being off will remove all the load from the batteries and allow the solar to keep them topped off. If you saw a spark, that is caused by load, so I bet you found your problem with the loose connection.

RE: satellite radio and gps antenna

I went through this on a 2015 and 2018 ram. this year I realized how bad Sirius sounds when I started streaming HD audio. I have turned off 4 Sirius accounts in the last month. sure you can get into place with bad coverage so I have songs on my Phone I can stream to stereo as well. Hell, even after moving antenna to front of ram hood, it will would loose receptions some times i satellite was low in sky behind me.(about 10% of the time). DONE!

RE: DOT & State Nuances of a 4500-5500?.

when I was running my Dually pickup towing a generic white box trailer up and down the east coast as I moved myself I ran magnetic decals on the lower doors that said "not for hire"

RE: Arctic Fox

having owned both a Wolf Creek and an Arctic Fox, there is plenty of help right here. I recall I was also on a facebook group for Arctic Fox.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Thanks for the encouragement! Sometimes I lose motivation with the build. But all of the positive comments help a ton! Thanks Again! Just keep the whole picture in mind. You still have to get it out of your garage :).

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Looks good. You probably don't need the fan to vent. Hydrogen is the gas produced. Its lighter than air so it will flow out the top vent through your hood and fresh air will come in the bottom :)

RE: New Palomino hard side 'solar ready'??

Call palomino, they are still a small enough company the they will actually answer the phone and talk you through it. We are taking delivery of our new AF and I have had questions much like yours.. a simple call and I hot right through to their engineers. I even told them that TC builders need to run a larger circuit up to the bed area for the growing number of Cpap users.. so if you see that idea coming into production you can thank me. I know with the AF its a PITA to run any new wire up through that wall. BUT if your not using the generator and your pre wired, there is several wires in that setup you can "borrow" that come from below the sink to above the divider in that side wall

RE: New Palomino hard side 'solar ready'??

Slymer, on my AF 990 the wire came from roof, went to that controller location in wall where it has some slack (but was not cut) than continued down to under sink areas. I used Bogart Engineering system including their solar controller. I put the solar controller under the sink. you can test that the wire is not cut by first checking continuity on roof looking for an "open", than find where the wire bundle ends under stink, twist ends together and check continuity of wires on roof again to see if its now shows a short.

RE: Quieter alternatives for propane furnace in extreme cold

As others have talked about, worry about the low temps. Remember, a problem in those temps is no longer "just an inconvenience", it can quickly turn into matter of life and death. Problems to expect: Low battery capacity because of cold. maybe heat for one night on two 27 series batteries? no solar charging generators will not start. moisture in propane tank can freeze and block lines (I had this happen in 25 deg with a 6mo with us. it was not fun. propane might not convert from liquid to vapor and prevent heater from working

RE: Advice to reduce truck camper sway (2018 Ram 2500)

there should be a piece of paper in your glove box with the perimeters for carrying a slide in camper. what does it say? This used to be posted on ram bodybuilders but I can't find it now. but from what I see, looking at 2500 diesel and no other perimeters your rated for a total cargo weight of around 2200-2600 lbs (including passengers) ram bodybuilders data Here is a nice link with more information.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

that front compartment on a 5er is still not where you want to vent a battery. that box you show still seals shut pretty well around that edge. In fact you will probably find the top and bottom 1/2's are bolted together when in use. This box also has a vent sticking out the bottom that goes through a hole in RV floor so it vents to outside air. than that hose on top also goes to outside air so air can pass through box as battery causes heat and chimney affect.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Here is all they use on a 5th wheel. This hose goes to the top of the box, and it has an equivalent size hole on the bottom, both vented outside so there is not negativity pressure on either opening. hydrogen is lighter than air so it rises up out the top vent.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

I have used plastic storage bin for batteries, add a vent tube on bottom and top, both going outside. https://images.homedepot-static.com/catalog/productImages/300/5d/5d01d806-bb21-498d-a6fa-5e4f1244b509_300.jpg

RE: TCs and Covid Vaccinations

We drove by a vaccination site the other day and the led sign said No Campers! in fact they are not even allowing you in the parking areas around Orlando until 7:00 am the day of. once the line spills over into the street they sent everyone not in line down the road. but my neighbor drove by at 11:00m, they let them get in line and they were out by 2:00, both wife and himself got 1st shots.

RE: TCs and Covid Vaccinations

in FL right now they only are giving shots to 65 years old or older as well as medical/healthcare workers with ID. My FL county is also doing First come first serve. they tried reservations but it killed the pone system so they just gave up. I am not 65, so I wait. at the rate they are going it will be 1 year until they get to people under 65. Oh and there is stories of people flying in just to get shots, even from other countries. One news show said 7% of shots are going to people who don't even live in FL.

RE: Ram 3500 with factory airbags

lots of replies on here have never seen the ram air suspension. . Neither did you. It doesn't exist. why do you need to treat people like this? Maybe its time you give the internet a rest? PS: Here is the name right out of the place you order the "automatic level-rear air suspension http://www.towpro.us/pictures/albums/userpics/10001/3/ramairsuspension.jpg

RE: Ram 3500 with factory airbags

lots of replies on here have never seen the ram air suspension. its doing what its supposed to do. I have never owned one personally. I have heard some don't like it because the air bags allow the transfer of air from one bag to the other which can allow more sway. I know Hellwig Products released a sway bar for the factory air suspension. (and I have had to add a sway bar to every Ram 3500 dually I have owned for pickup camper usage) I think you also have an alternative ride height selection that will lower the truck 1" which might bring that lower spring into play loaded.
