RE: Fifth Wheel cameras and tow vehicle

Hey folks Looking for some guidance. I just ordered a fifth wheel. Now I have a couple of months to find a tow vehicle. The new camper has a 4-camera security/tow system. What brand is the system on the 5th wheel?

RE: Best forum

After all these years. This is still one of the best forums on the internet. ...When it works... It's been very unreliable the last two weeks.

RE: Ideal V8 rpms when towing?

Each engine has it "sweat spot" My Duramax doesn't sweat

RE: Exterior plastic trim cracked

There's two style of that trim... hard plastic (which gets brittle and cracks) and a softer, pliable style. I can't remember who sells the softer style.

RE: How To Video: Changing a Duramax Fuel Filter.

I just remove the passenger side battery for access. I just changed the filter on my 2006 LBZ for the for the 20th time so I've pretty well got it down now. Good idea. :-) I had an LBZ concurrently with my LMM. LBZ was easier. I could also pull the filter out the top.

RE: Has anyone looked at the Jeep Gladiator?

MSRP is off the charts, IMHO True dat. Unbelievably so actually. x12. For the money a Gladiator costs, I'd be far better ahead "tow-rig wise" buying something else.... like a full size truck. I have looked at the Gladiator a few weeks ago. The interior of the new generation Jeep is kind of nasty. Bright colors on the dash look like a Fiat. Oh wait, it is sort of a Fiat. The dash / interior of the 2011+ JK was much nicer in my opinion.

RE: Exterior plastic trim cracked

The video above is mine...glad someone found it and shared it here. That was my Arctic Fox truck camper, which is 10 years old next month. This is the third section of that trim I replaced. First failure was the nose (cabover). Made sense that it failed first because it see more direct sunlight. Then the back wall trim failed. Then the roof line (video above). Curious what the build date is on your RV. I've seen "next model year" rigs being built in June of the previous year... so it's possible your unit had been on a dealers lot 1.5 years or more.

RE: 2020 Chevy 2500HD Gas

I am gonna telling having pulled my trailer with a 6.4 and 6.0. I am taking the 6.0 everyday. The gearing ruins the 6.4 and 6.0 pulls away coming up Vantage. That is 6 speed 6.4 vs a 6 speed 6.0 Towing 7800lbs and 32 feet. Which 6.4L are you talking about?

RE: How To Video: Changing a Duramax Fuel Filter.

They are easy to change but takes me more than 10 minutes just to drop the fender well. Now the L5P's are real easy. Access door in the fender well is a huge time saver.

RE: We're sorry. An error has occurred.

Is anyone addressing the issue, I don't see any forum admin response in this thread. Apparently no one is rading this forum other than the people having the problem. The error has been happening to me all day today.

HOW TO: Install a slide topper awning + other upgrades

I've wanted a slide topper awning for a long time. It's taken my 9.5 years to finally decide to do it. Here's my video that shows how I did it. It's not a terribly difficult project, it's just time consuming. I worked on it several evenings after work, and one morning before work. I had my local Northwood dealer order the awning from the factory and ship it up to them in a new unit being delivered from the factory to the dealer to avoid paying freight on such a large item. During the process of installing it, I also upgraded to stainless steel screws on the roof trim: SS Screw upgrade Then I replaced the plastic trim insert

How To Video: Changing a Duramax Fuel Filter.

If I'm slow doing it, it might take 10 minutes. I've never paid a dealer to do it because it's easy to do if you are the type the likes to do your own maintenance. A Dealer charges my dad at least $100 for the filter change on his truck. This video applies to LB7-LMM for sure. I think LML and later use a different style filter.

RE: skylight/sunroof. clear, cloud, or smoke.

I used white PlastiDip spray on our clear skylights. Still let's in a lot of light but knocks down the harshness. I did the same thing to both skylights in my Arctic Fox truck camper about a month ago.

RE: skylight/sunroof. clear, cloud, or smoke.

Has anyone had a good or bad experience installing/using a clear skylight? All of the Northwood RVs that have skylights, have clear one. That's Nash, Fox Mountain, Wolf Creek and Arctic Fox (trailers, 5th wheels and truck campers). I've never heard people complain about them being clear.

RE: Chassis strength of 20 -26 ft trailers with one slide

Ditto on ORV / Nash / Arctic Fox have very stout frames. I won't buy any other brand of RV after seeing how cheaply LCI frames are, compared to the stoutness of the frames Northwood and ORV use.

RE: Check your batteries

I have solar charging them daily. The solar is a great helper but it results in faster electrolyte loss than typical use with occasional charging. Sounds like the solar controller is chargin at too high of a voltage. Higher voltages is what results in gassing of batteries. Float voltage should be around 13.5 or so once the batteries are fully charged. If they are continually held at 14+ volts, gassing occurs. In my RV it was very difficult to check the water level in the batteries. I killed them due to lack of maintenance. About 2014 or 2015 I switched to AGMs. My Upgrade to AGM Batteries
