RE: Back up camera using factory screen

Camera Source seems to have them for GMs too. I have the Ford model.

RE: leg bracket repair

I would remove the jack bracket and show us what you find underneath it. The wood underneath could be rotted or just split. If it is split, then it is a “normal” wood repair. A little more complicated if it is rotted as the entire area would need to be rebuilt.

RE: Insurance Coverage facts wanted:

It doesn’t take a truck camper to put a vehicle over it’s GVWR. If you are interested in overweight vehicles, look for overloaded cars, suvs, RVs, and pickups irrespective of a TC in the bed or not. It would be simpler to find examples if you look for all vehicle types. If you are worried about liability based on payload, it’s simple. Buy a TC small enough or a truck with a big enough payload to handle all that you will carry.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

Removing 1 of 7.5 gallons propane cylinders make plenty of storage for gas can.... with triple running time. Sure, but fridges, water heaters, stoves, ovens, builtin generators, and furnaces don’t run on gasoline.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

I think it would be theoretically possible although you might be able to buy a gasoline generator for the cost of roll your own conversion. If you have to carry gasoline, you might as well carry propane unless you’d rather have a gasoline generator because of other reasons like how quiet they can be. The reason why small RVs don’t have gasoline engine generators is they don’t typically have gasoline storage built in.

RE: Nascar Follies

Jimmie should retire as planned. The way things are going, there will be just as few fans next year if they don't change course.

RE: Suburban furnace not restarting

Could be the furnace or propane. I don’t think it’s the thermostat if it’s starting. Try a different propane tank if you have two. Check to make sure propane works on the stove and burns normally with no popping. Is it getting hot or just running?

I’m not sure. Isn’t the Holiday work celebrated on tomorrow?

I acquired an old pony from my father this winter. Nice car.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Read my post and sure didn't mean to come across snarky.. I didn’t think you were snarky. :D Any way, I can’t seem to get to all of the pages.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

Moot picky point as the OP has a 2020 F350 DRW but anywayz the F350 DRW/F450 pickup both have the same Dana M300 9900 rawr....same number of leaf springs....same leaf thickness.../etc. How did you find this out?

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

The leaf pack is no different than an F450. Just for the record, the spring pack is definitely different on other years. I haven’t looked for the 2020, but probably is different still in the pickup variety. Dramatically different in the F450 chassis models.

RE: Bypassing charger Magnatek 6332

If you are worried about the charger, just buy a small charger for trips or break down and add a solar panel kit. If you think the charger/converter is possibly an issue, don’t risk it or you’ll be buying a battery depending on the warranty. Alternatively, plug in and test it out. If it kills your battery, go get a replacement.. If it doesn’t, you are good to go. Fwiw, I don’t think a bad charger will cause bad cells. More than likely, it would boil the liquid out and kill all of the battery. More than likely the bad cells are from vibration and separating the connection in the battery. Not a battery expert because mine don’t fail much, but I’ve never needed to replace a charger because of a battery with a bad cell on any vehicle/RV I’ve had.

RE: F350 HD DRW mods for 4500# camper

I like having airbags for the flexibility, so I add those and Energy Suspension extended bump stops to maintain overload contact when I add air to level. If you don’t mind being out of level, I think stock would be fine. You will sag in the rear.

RE: Fridge won't fit

I’m sure there is a “way” to remove the fridge. But, if you’ve worked on anything, you know the engineering is kind of off at times. Not a big deal it’s just the engineers are the QA for engineers and the mechanics and customers should be. :D

RE: Poll: How many 1T TC haulers have no modifications?

I did my first trip, a thousand mile trip with no mods on my 2006 F350 SRW. It was fine. I added mods later to make it better and add more room for error. That is, I added 19.5s, Rancho adjustable shocks, etc. I put on similar mods to my F450 only because I wanted the ability to level the rig with a trailer attached.
