RE: FastGuns / Hallmark - how to provide extra camper security?

The jack that came with your truck will most likely be totally inadequate for changing a tire with the camper on. I bought a 6 ton bottle jack with accessories from Safe-Jack: https://safejacks.com/collections/bottle-jack-accessories/products/safe-jack-bottle-jack-recovery-kit-with-bottle-jack I’ve changed 14 or 15 flats all with the camper on using that little screw jack that came with the truck, no problems whatsoever even a bit sideways on a hill. Yes, the number is correct, that includes cracking 4 wheels and why I went to forged aluminum. And for 4wheeling I undo the rear jacks and move them up in the bracket holes to where the foot of the jack is at the bottom of the camper. I agree to keeping them on. And...if you’ve never had anything stolen vehicle wise you might not understand the need to take as many precautions as possible to prevent theft even for a few minutes.

RE: TC and real off-roading

Whaz, I think we've expended enough energy on this site to counterbalance the trolling mode going on here. Maybe once again it's time. jefe I’m with you Jefe, I’m outta here.

“Make some videos next time.” Sounds like orders to me, sorry. Must be my two cups of coffee, caffeine is not my friend.

RE: TC and real off-roading

Well I have a full size door! And hey my weight is that of a full size hard side, I’ve heard loaded around 2400#. I only lack a few inches of height but still have 44 gal of water. Anyway, the loss of solar to inches of overhang doesn’t concern me, why does it concern you? It was all the real estate I have so don’t we use what we have and be happy? And I’ll make vids if and when I like, thanks for the orders. Geez...

RE: Tripping ol man winter

Howdy Doug! Ok guys, your generous replies all these years are unheard of, you hear that?! I can only give a heart-felt thank you to everyone. You've given me a great ride for a long time now, cheers to the TC life.

No reason to post, not being a hard side and all.

RE: Tripping ol man winter

Hello ol Friends. Boy it's a set of happy eyes to see some of you still here with those great replies. Thank you thank you! Hey I can take no credit for pictures, there is no photography involved hah. I just have a better camera and discovered the kit lens is better than the one I bought to use, who knew? Now I have a lens to sell. And you're right Cal, I need a sled though I don't think lil Bailey would be much help pulling my butt out of the snow. I could use one on the hills though. See ya Guys!!

RE: Tripping ol man winter

No kidding Steve?! We may have talked about it before but I forget. I saw Fleetwood Mac and Black Sabbath at the Swing before it burned down. It was both their first US tour in the early 70’s, when we could afford to go without robbing a bank. Talk soon Steve, big yes to the JD Fire hah, quite the internal warm up solution. Thanks!

RE: Wow is my truck fast. I bought it used so not bragging.

I've hit 110 mph easy with the camper on and a Hypertech programmer, becoming one with the wind...of a hurricane, on an empty stretch of road in SE Utah. Had it programmed to top out at 118 mph.

RE: Roof rack for a canoe

Yakima all the way, bars, and saddles for the front and back. 16 foot canoe curves over the a/c nicely. I now just use the two center straps for tie-downs. http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj190/whazoo100/1st%20canoe%20trip/003.jpg http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj190/whazoo100/Mosquito%20Pass%20Colorado/0047.jpg Also use a boat loader slide-out bar for single loading. http://i272.photobucket.com/albums/jj190/whazoo100/boatloader/IMG_5408.jpg

RE: Painting the Interior

Of course, primer first after using a sanding block or Scotchbrite on it to scuff. Hah, after 46 years as a painting contractor I still hear " to give it tooth." Then a couple coats of paint. I will say that Home Depot carries Rustoleoum brand of faux finish to give it a...wood look haha. I've done several residential cabinets with the stuff and it looks great. I have some to use on my camper cabinets but haven't done it yet. When I get the time I'll do it without any reservations. The old oak veneer is looking , well, old. "Without reservations", like you need a reservation to paint cabinets.

RE: Tribute to Livin' Lite or Camp Lite....whatever

When people say or write, its nothing personal, it usually is. Everyone jumps around in threads once in a while, and if I did while answering a question or having a "conversation" with someone, why does that require a snarky comment from the same forum members, time after time. Social commentary is a sign of the times, and does not always show the best side of people. Bye bye......thud Big time, and why so many good people have left rvnet, and now two more...

RE: Northstar campers

I'm in the black tank camp for the same reason as others, we can "go" 10 days or so without dumping. Or is it we can dump 10 days without going...to the dump station. We love to winter camp also but find most outhouses locked up for the off season, a cassette would need to go elsewhere. That means a long drive to a town or gas station. Also, with heated basement I've never had the black tank freeze but understand not all campers have the same features. I'd like to try a cassette for sure but not outright buy a camper with one before knowing for sure. It would be a cr_p shoot...

RE: How'd He Get That Boat Up There???

Weight police.... GO!!! That boat ain't that heavy and besides,that setup was way way before weight police existed, when people just adapted to situations without the fallout the internet provides! And all the people said Amen! I remember the day that wouldn't have brought a worry. Love the truck! Also, I can't see one in the pic but my friend Steve has one on his camper for the same type boat and I now have one on my box trailer for my 12 ft aluminum boat. A little electric motor that pulls the boat up and flips it to lay as you see it. It's pretty darn cool. I see some guide ropes attached to the camper that makes me think this is the same thing.

RE: Securing you rig from theft (truck and camper)

I prefer a Trunk Monkey myself. I’m sure there’s a Camper Monkey out there somewhere. Trunk Monkey

RE: Broken copper tube on AC, thanks to Dempster Hwy

It must just be bad luck. I have the same a/c as you on my Outfitter and it still works great after 11 years of off-roaring. Some things just can’t be explained right? Except by luck, good or bad and it sounds like you had both at the same time. So...good luck!
