RE: Where do you put your levels?

To many people don't realize the importance of getting your refrigerator as close to level as possible therefore ,there refrigerator is dying a slow death and they don't even realize it.. ..... I cannot think of any reason this should be so. Nor have I heard that slightly out of level will cause a slow death. In fact according to the specs I have seen there is considerable tolerance for being out of level. Can you provide any citations or research results for this opinion? several older model refigerator mfgs had poor tolorance for being used while in out of level condition . I think Dinosaur replacement card overcomes this problem by more accurete temperature control

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

People dump trash because they are inconsiderate pigs, not because there's not a convenient place for them to dump it. Its their trash and they're responsible for it. Period. RV parks put the dumpster as far from the campers as possible so they don't have to smell it. There are zero excuses to leave trash behind. Zero. X-1000 its time to quit making excused for low lifes

RE: bigfoot on shortbed srw

I just reviewed 6 years of different model years of BF brochures 2000 -2008 there are no 2500 series 9.6 listed as for short bed use , they only list 9.4 and once an 8-11 b was listed as for short box use

RE: bigfoot on shortbed srw

The 9.6 BF is not built with enough fiberglass frame structure to support that much weight hanging over the rear of a short bed truck. Also center of gravity would actually reduce front axle weight. My 9.6 only puts 300lbs on the front axle.. . I have a friend that has an older BF that is 11'5". Even on a long bed the rear of the camper has sagged quite a bit and caused a delimitation of the internal structure of the walls at the rear overhang. He fixed that but the sag was not much better. My 9'6" does sag just a bit back there too and that is on a long bed. No structure problems though... 20 years, lots of miles and many rough roads! All the way to Prudhoe bay and more. Lastly... Both the gray and black tanks are in the overhang... 50 gallons when full. Along with that part of the fresh water tank is in that last 1.5' of overhang... A short bed would place about another 2' of water weight in the short bed overhang of the camper. The 9.6 holds about 50 gallons of fresh water... Jim sound advise i have worked on many different models of BF's that had the rear sag problem.
