RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

On my NL 10-2 there is no flap on the outside under the vent hood, but there is one on the inside of the range hood.

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

Well I'm very glad you are getting things worked out! Sounds more like the dealer dropped the ball on this one. I sure hope Dave (one of the owners of D&H) steps up and makes this right for you. I too bought my 10-2 from D&H but at the Appex location. I had them deliver the camper, it was cheaper that way.I have only had two minor problems with my 10-2, one was like yours. After setting several months this past winter my Happijacs would not work either. Called Kieth at Northern Lite, he had me check the light on the board and it was not on. He had me unplug the power lead going to board and put it back on after a few seconds. It worked, it reset the board and have not had any problems since. I'm just as interested as you are in how did your board get wet? It's in a pretty protected area. You dont think you have a tank or maybe a plumbing leak....I certainly hope not. Becareful with that 20' cord, I have enough worries trying to keep my 12' cord from getting under the camper while I put and lower camper on truck. Thank you for updating and please let us know if the cord fixes the taillight issues.

RE: TC vs Small 5th wheel

Is a small 5th wheel or TT much more difficult to back into a site and level? Have any of you owed both a short 5th wheel and a TC that can comment on any advantages or disadvantages of each setup? I dry camp 95% of the time so water capacity is important I have 60 gals now which last me 7 days. I don't think a TT or a FW is any easier to back in and level,infact,I give the TT and FW an edge in the easier department..Other than the backing part,a truck camper can be harder to level in the spot and they all need to be level for the refer..On a TT and FW it's a touch of a button to level North to South...A TC has to be fiscally moved onto blocks for N to S.. I owned a 35 ft Jayco FW and a 8ft truck camper at the same time..Lived in the FW and camped in the TC...Kinda cool... The best rig we had for what we do was a 24ft Class C with the perfect floorplan(couch and two chairs) for us...Three of us and a dog lived and roamed in that one for years.. TT vs FW..The TT gives you the whole pickup bed for all your stuff while the FW makes it hard to transport large stuff like a 25 gallon propane tank that has to be laid down to work..Tall generators or other stuff can make hauling them with a FW tough...But a FW is easier to hookup and un-hook.. My pick would be a small TT for the room in the pickup bed or a small Class C motorhome if you like just pulling over and not getting out to be home... As to the TC and truck needed on an internet forum,take it all with a grain of salt..I have owned a ton of truck campers from 8-10.5 ft and never owned a dually truck,but they were older campers without slides but the only mod was extras springs, one way or the other. Good luck on your choice.. What??? I back or pull my TC onto spot, disengage my fast guns get jack remote out and level camper while still on (but disconneted from) truck. Say 5 minutes and I'm level and ready. I've never seen anybody with TT or FW get their rings leveled that fast or easy.

RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

Surprised that Northern Lite and Bigfoot neither one has a valve to cut water off to the outside shower... My BF does, accessible through the electrical cord door. Agree, outside shower could be a weak point.....but... winter time I winterize. If a camper trip happens in winter months I dewinterize everything except the outside shower. Only done this once so far and no problems. Remember newer campers are plumed with pex. Pex will expand and flex a lot more than copper and pvc will. Also, backside of outside shower controls are only 6 to 12" away from bathroom faucet and get heated from furnace. I do not use outside shower in winter months so leaving antifreeze in those lines do not bother me. A person could also fill the outside shower area with a piece of insulation batting for a little extra piece of mind. I'm just wondering if this is a real issue or just a possible issue.

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

What I would like to reply I will not. I thought up till now this forum was here to help people . So thank you for your help. I did not ask Northern Lite to diagnose a problem I was asking if they could recommend someone closer to me to provide service. You are correct in that this forum is a great place to look for advice. Your first post seemed liked it was more about bashing Northern Lite than asking for help. I am still very interested in hearing about "the never ending story of Northern Lite annoying problems". Sounds like you have had a few more problems other than tail lights. Remember, Northern Lite is in Canada and it would be very hard for them to recommend a repair facility near to you other than D&H (they have 2 dealerships one in Florida other in North Carolina) and they are both probably 400 miles away from you. There are 100's of RV repair facilities out there, and just because someone hangs a sign up that says "RV Repair" does not mean they are a good and or a qualified RV repair shop. So take a deep breath, relax and enjoy your fabulous new 10-2 truck camper....and lets get this minor tail light problem resolved. You can get a trailer plug tester pretty cheaply or you can ask around your area for any recommendations for a good RV service center. Call them and find out about what there fees are, see if this is something they do. Do not be surprised when they tell you electrical problems are by the hour and not a set fee. It can get very time consuming to trace down some electrical problems. Make sure to document any and all problems found with photos, especially if the problem is found to be within the camper. While the camper was on your truck and the umbilical cord was hooked up, did you notice if your trucks backup lights were on when the brake lights were on? If so I would unhook umbilical cord and then recheck truck brake and back up lights. If they both still on then it is a truck wiring problem. If not... hook up umbilical to only the truck and check brake backup lights on your truck. If they both come on while applying the brake it is a short in umbilical cord. If not, and while umbilical is still plugged into truck, take your 7 pin RV plug tester and plug it into the end that you would plug into to camper. If both brake and backup lights still come on using tester it is a short in the umbilical cord, if not, it maybe in camper wiring. Main thing is you have to start at the source which in this case is the trucks wiring. And you have to check each and every connection back to camper taillights in order to find the fault. Make sure truck lights are working correctly first then work your way back. There have been many great post here showing you how the plugs and cord should be wired, use this info to help find the fault. I know I would be very interested in hearing about how this turns out, please keep us posted, and please, please let us know about never ending story of Northern Lite annoying problems!

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

I guess I'm going to give OP benefit of doubt and mark this up as "new camper anxiety". I sure hope he post back here with update and I sure would like to know what all the "never ending story of Northern Lite annoying problems" were! Please OP, let us know what the outcome was. I wish you well!

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

Something doesnt sound right with this post?? Northern Lite giving less then above and beyound customer service just has not been my experience. You just bought it and you have had to call Northern Lite 3 times already? Never ending story of annoying problems?? What other problems have you had? What was the outcome once you recieved your pigtail tester? You do know that the PDI paperwork in the folder you mentioned is the Sole resposibilty of the Dealer to fill out, not sure why you would not hold dealer 100% responsible for that. Why didn't the dealer check your lights before you left the lot? Trying to get Northern Lite to diagnois your back up light problem over the phone would be futile, there are just way to many varibles for that to be productive. At any rate I wish you the best of luck!

RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

I would imagine that Northern Lite and Bigfoot both incorporate torque limitting power tools at each of the particular work stations just like any other assembly line does. Over torquing might happen on rare occasions. I have been all through my 2018 NL 10-2 doing mods and have not found one single over torqued/ stripped out screw yet.
