RE: Help! One of my jacks won't retract or extend!

It is correct that you can’t lift with three jacks, 1 front and 2 rear. You can though lift with 2 front and 1 rear. Like someone said it used to be 3 jacks tho they were not even front to back, one was about middle on one side. Huh? So while on the supports, remove the bad front and replace with a good rear. Walla, good to go until to you fix the now rear jack. A big yes to putting the bad jack on the back just in case it does tip, a little leg is better than none. And yes, probably a shear pin on the gear or the mechanism with the lever that transfers from manuel to auto, it’s plastic. I rebuilt mine last year but sitting here now the memory is a little foggy. Also, let a lot of air out of your rear tires so you don’t have to lift the camper as high. Maybe down to 15-20 lbs.

RE: loosing old members

Fred Rated was Shadoe Stevens, a disc jockey from KROQ, the rocks of Los Angeles same time as Frazier Smith, my fav jock of all time but only when on KROQ. Anybody remember his intro song? I remember Frazier Smith, but just barely. I think he was about done there when I started listening. Is he the one that did the Tiny Tina character and the Twin Dragon Almond Cookies commecrials? But no, I can't remember the song right now. I might have it on one of my many tapes I made back then... KLOS and the might "met" KMET were the staples...machine gun Kelly, Jackson B sniderfish, paraquat Kelly and the fish report...the "rock" was to "new wave" for me. Actually KROQ was the precursor to KMET and the others, it was underground FM before FM really took off. And whoya, the fish report with a beat with the jocks you mentioned and the Burner Mary Turner. Frazier went to KLOS after the Rocks and got real stupid with his show. On KROQ his opening song was Panic In Detroit by David Bowie and he’d scream all the way through. He came on at ten pm and I’d do my college math homework to his show. No wonder I had to take Boolean Algebra twice. Okeedok that’s all from me, nice sharing memories with you, have a good one.

RE: VTR - virtual trip report, my last one

Hah, I do have a few pics of Cal and I at the Swell on a 6º trip. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/proxy/4LgQmWksiTNu6VYETMSuHSWOzSwY4VTDNWU58TlG-tFLNSVXlFQSttV4arJzYrBzAaybhXVhg1XJo_-3S8VrV5mM0FoqM73Raq1yDhPiQn2aUx58GnHCvP9kHjn80wZ6OMB2m3LUlWZeKAU=s0-d width=800 I got turned around and Cal gave me directions on which way to go, lucky for me, I might not have found my way out. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/i1niCOtr9wyq-GwpM56De2Ai8sYJJNyf6o6y2TlfsOmXoApZxs91gE0TYfqzA2tl3OIu-KPtdWq4nMmX4YdfwNjeA1qGpYZZn2dDCG4Iscy169RGeuAoEGRDU7F0nzc0R0CjIIVJKT2cXKM=s0-d width=800 https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/proxy/BZMVxQL-4_-sTsNHKfGOJw8CZMd2QN3khp5ixJZ5tJGdE3yq-nJYyDAIvU7S9diVDFM-fY02w4ZL021l_5TJNPdnTQd_1A77Kb6u1NR-UTGVvrzHbVxvQcXiBlgtSjwNbsU9EoFDWBqDzOo=s0-d width=800 https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/llx0IlVPh-r8HB-vq2HHU7K9nEgHfhZ2Xp2fgt-W9cFWVecSwDuf5K6jew2Rinz8jAXRJVkQUUtA-XgZhDtzcjzqnaaV8KTeIFuyhWsqZ7dOAsGauNXMal7z6qkuoQdNK5FpAdTW7T7TJkY=s0-d width=800 I did not know Cal was also Spiderman. https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/zup_JX2EqWLtC86tUW5eZhzu-DX7dq33f5NsMqo9GaL-UQ2vVCZwOyzBHB84tnQjSFy0pxJh8d6ipgDMWOBKCFy5LaEBr_D8gyJp_rsslNH8cDHAvNi9KifF3TGyOXbxxVfXHmJ-BMpT1nAyAA=s0-d height=640 So long Cal, see ya sometime! https://lh6.googleusercontent.com/proxy/69kmT8g9OftaRQxlGhEE6ftqE9DS7A-jJqHbtZl1XhlPEPUUZ3D83ZV-QjDquAQ6hB9xaL6gWUmUii8QRErAeJx789m-ZAmvfY-1Fxv_2AgxKNoH4J_WNlS_HD0bjSQC7KZcPz_qSl5Ph2s=s0-d width=800

RE: VTR - virtual trip report, my last one

Hey Cal, thanks for the heads-up here and boy that’s a lot of pictures of a lot of awesome places. I’ll be sure to enjoy Dark Canyon for you and keep it in good shape should you ever make it back. And good choice at Bobby’s Hole, let ol Jefe leave some paint on those rocks. Enjoy the next chapter in your book of traveling the good ol US of A and beyond.

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.

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.
