RE: leg bracket repair

Yep, there's another discussion going on, sorry, can't find it. But,I'm having a similar thing going one. But it's a swing bracket that bent. Dealer has their, pricey at 2 for $300 but looks pretty easy with the power wrench. If you have camper wall damage, well then that's a little different story. If you have motors on the top of jack, aka Power Jack, apparently they're easy to move to the new one. Good luck, I"m in the middle of this fix.. Cheers

RE: Camper jack torn off driving

Yep, bent one jack too and the Swing brackets. Luckily, dealer had the swing bracket and is order the Jack, Titan Reco or whatever. Motor is easily transferable apparently so I just get the straight jack it's self. Initially I had a bent swing bracket and initially got it bent back but still wasn't lined up correctly. My Swings come in packets of 2 apx $300, not cheap. Believe the straight jack is apx $300 too. Good luck..

RE: How to fix an Arctic Fox slide

Nice, gives me a better idea of just how to get in there.. No easy way I suppose, but to tear up the floor, cut a hole and access from there. I'm specifically wanting to replace the 2 Rollers that fell out on the flow, A long, long, time Ago... Don't suppose AF has these and other pics posted on a website somewhere??? thanks.. Frank, did you ever get those rollers replaced? Where did you find the replacements/Part Numbers? Pics? Thanks Yes, had it done, RV repair in Prineville, OR but took a while. Got the parts from my dealer as his supplier kept sending wrong one... Expensive little buggers... some $80 each if I remember plus install costs..

RE: Today was my first time......

Nice, I do it all the time... if nothing else to stabilize it in windy conditions... Also,those yellow lifters can help for just minor adjusting.... Enjoy the trip...

RE: Do you drink.......

Well, .....Look into Berkey or Royal Dalton. Plus you just periodically clean the filters, no replacements to buy like those wasteful plastic Brita things! These systems are used by relief organizations like UNICEF, the Peace Corps and the Red Cross. Bonus, when the SHTF you are covered! Kewl, thanks, I put it on the Amz wish list along with the stand... hard to overhang on Camper Sink... Thanks again... nice one..

RE: Do you drink.......

Yah, been drinking from it for 4.5 yrs, Full time, no problem. I use the Brita, going to replace it with the new filtration jug when I get the chance. and if in a bad tasting water area, use "Sweet Water' to add as I fill up... Sometimes it's a little off, but the Brita helps... Just have to clean it occasionally as it turns green, heheh, from the sun through the window... Other than that, no problem-o... Thinking I should sanitize when the opportunity arises...

RE: Jet pack 8800L have the problems been worked out?

RE: Jet pack 8800L have the problems been worked out?

i believe they have, but more important if you have the 'Unlimited' plan that you might be grandfathered in, it that Vzn won't allow you to go back to it.. Last advise I saw, as I was thinking of doing the same, was to get the 88.. from a 3rd party and then swap chips... This link might help, they just about cover it all... Hope that helps.. gotta watch Verizon, it's luv-hate thing... heheh

RE: New smoker grill

So, curious, how does it hold to temps... I currently have a CharBroil and while it'll get up to some 550F according to the hood gauge, but when putting something in there it drops to around 350F and won't go any higher, not that I really need to, but the temp regulator doesn't seem to control the temp that much. It's either on or off... So wondering how this sticks to temp settings.. Thanks..

RE: First TC Rally

Yah, I saw that AFTER it was over... I was just up the dirt road there, Tyson Wash so that would have been fun. I've set the general date for next year if they have another one.. Fun..

RE: step solutions

Yah, use the GlowSteps and luv'em. you can ADD steps, up to six I believe and they are adjustable to the ground. Compacts easily and is critical for WalMart (Markets) stops... They are easy to take off too. make sure you get the Locks with it, they are stronger and keeps them from wandering off. Alignment: I put mine offset a little to allow for opening the door while on them instead of right in front of it, so plan accordingly if you can. I string a set of lights for night time ease of seeing them which helps.. Can't really think of any negatives, but each camper is different.. so keep that in mind... Otherwise, strongly recommend them... Good luck...

RE: TC off truck

Yep, camper dependant, I sleep a lot with camper off truck, no problem-o. Just lower it down and while it will sway and shutter in a strong wind, it's fine...

RE: Anyone ever try the Traction pads for a Truck Camper

Yep, looking at them too, on the Amz Wish list.. I eventually plan on 6, for all tires or to run them end to end. Now, don't forget when you have to tow yourself out.. hehe as in nothing to attach tow rope to from winch... like a sand patch. You can bury something like 'Sand Anchor' but I'm thinking the Pull Pal.. also... It's tricky in trying to figure out just what works and what doesn't... So, matrix and the Pull Pal along with the winch are all on the list.. And here's why, Luckily, another truck camper was kind enough to 'Break from camp' and come to my rescue... I was lucky and am waiting to pay it forward...

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Yah, one that works with Trucks as noted, it more of a ceiling height issue.. I just all ahead and ask and if not they usually know of someone that does... Dealing with that and a 5500 presents it's own problems, but a 3500 should be ok... just call them and if hard press, you should be able to off load either at the campsite or at the dealer and reload when done... Have to call around.. Good luck..
