RE: Considering building camper from scratch...

Cruise over to expedition portal or other sites where there are discussions of building campers. There are lots of people that do build some incredible rigs out of all kinds of material. If you can weld aluminum you have a huge advantage. Building your own is certainly doable. It will take time. But, it can be better than a prebuilt one too! Do a lot of research before starting, get a plan, and go for it!

RE: 2007 Cedar Creek Silverback slide out issue

Need to know what brand and type of slideout mechanism to give any real useful advice. That said, sounds like the timing may be off between the tracks of your slideout. Google retiming slideouts. Here is an article describing this. https://liveworkdream.com/2015/10/28/slideout-rails-adjustment/

RE: Top of Slideout Not Fully Retracting

Found the problem. The ears that bolt to the floor and hold the slideout tracks to the camper are cracked totally through on one bracket and starting to crack on the other bracket. Pain in the neck, but fixable at least.

Top of Slideout Not Fully Retracting

I have a side slideout that the top is not fully retracting in an Eagle Cap 1160. The bottom of the slideout is making good contact with the outside seal, however the top of the slideout needs to come in an additional 1/2" - 3/4". It seems to move normal with no unusual binding or issues, the top just fails to come in all the way. It does have a topper. If I get on a ladder and manually turn (with minimal effort) the slideout topper, the top of the slideout closes the gap to the camper. Gear tracks on the bottom look ok, nothing on the top of the slideout, and no obvious impediments. For good measure I cleaned and waxed the sides of the slideouts which did increase the speed, but no affect on the retraction issue. This is a Powergear style slideout with motor on the bottom back and two gear track rails with bar connecting rear track to the front. Thanks in advance for any ideas!

TC Alternator Connection Diode

I think my diode is dead on the connection from the TC to the truck alternator. What amperage diode is recommended?

RE: Eagle Cap 1160 Dump Valves

Yes, the basement floor is the bottom of the camper. The walls/floors of an EC (probably others I guess) are laminated walls with aluminum structure surrounded by glass outside and wood inside. Scares me to work on the bottom where there could be significant structure. Interior floor does not scare me as much. Still hoping I can find someone that has done this to an EC...

RE: Eagle Cap 1160 Dump Valves

Thinking of taking the interior floor up (the part you walk on), trying to find any structure, and making a hole. Then should be able to repair whatever hole is made and put some new flooring down. Current plan at least...

RE: Eagle Cap 1160 Dump Valves

Interesting. I have not seen those. One of those would at least give me time to figure it out and install the real valve on my schedule. The valve in the camper appears to be very inaccessible. Hoping there is some magic access to it otherwise it is cutting a hole in the inside of the camper to access it. Thanks!

Eagle Cap 1160 Dump Valves

I have an Eagle Cap 1160. 2008 era. It appears to be time to replace the black dump valve. Not a lot, but a drip from time to time out of the pipe. These valves are shoved way up in the basement of the camper so I am hoping there is some kind of hidden access. Does anyone know how you get to the valves on these to replace them? Thanks in advance!
