RE: 2000 Fleetwood Camper - Owner's Manual?

... Our F150 is a 2016, and we are adding an airbag package that allows us to carry 5,000 lbs... While airbags will allow supporting more weight without overpowering suspension, they do not increase the axles capacity (or rest of truck) to carry more weight than it was designed for. At best your truck is 3200# payload, likely 2200# or so. Our tires, when inflated to 45lbs, ca carry 9,000 lbs. ... GVWR? Simple 2016 F150 chart, curb weights/Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR)/payload capacities.../2016/ford f150 specs/ As to the trailer, adding to what already is a marginal setup Id nix that idea. Yes would be nice but really, you need to draw a line somewhere. I'll withhold my opinions on towing an h/F bolt together trailer 2600+ miles. Your issue is truck. Hopefully this isn't a decision that is up to "the family" as it seems interjecting information contrary to others conclusions.

.. with endcaps and a couple rolls of Dicor Butyl seal tape. I have the drawings from Eagle cap on the stud/cross brace spacing, so now to locate those and put the aluminum strips in. Curious where you found end caps and what they look like.

RE: rear camera for toad

Tell me more about the fisheye window for the backdoor.... as I have a back window but can only see thru a portion of it........ any first hand experiences........ We have one, simple plastic lens that sticks to rear window. Increases field of view (similar to wide angle lens on mirror). https://www.amazon.com/CIPA-60200-Wide-Angle-Lens/dp/B000TCCWS2 one source,-available just about anywhere. While increases what can be seen thru window, need to be able see it, our camper door window is centerd and visible. About 10 bucks, its all I generaly use. I do have camera now and no comparison but for just glancing and checking toad is still there the lens works..

RE: AF811 Slide out seal / Gasket

There are many different styles- internet search "Slide out seal" would allow to match visually...usually sold in lengths long enough to do continuous seal. or possibly contact AF, they might ID it.

RE: Power

Hmm-either figured it out or batteries died and cant get back on line?

RE: Power

Doubtful can help-just too many variables. Sounds like you checked, but not how? Id turn everything off in camper and breakers, turn off park breakers, unplug and start over. If at park ask to have power pole checked unless you have a means to verify power. Turn on campers AC main breaker, plug camper back in, turn on poles breaker. IF just looking at something to 'come on' to verify power turn on one of the campers AC sub breakers.

RE: 94 Fleetwood Elkhorn water leak!!! Help

Pretty sure its the fresh water tank drain.. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/WifiCell/i-pDTj3nh/0/0ac6f046/L/gpl5-L.jpg width=640 height=480 Small quarter turn valve 'should' be present. Any rv parts house, possibly hardware, utilizes barb fitting typical. https://www.amazon.com/Camco-22223-Drain-Valve-Flange/dp/B0006IX85A

RE: Tech problem with MaxxFan Deluxe--need advice

While easy enough to add reg- the fact that fan can not handle typical voltages in an RV is simply astounding, more so that rep would admit to that. Makes no since given it is sold for RVs and as you stated the 14+ volts is the 'norm' not 'high voltage level' or a 'spike'. I looked at the install specs and all I found was 'minimum 12V @5amp', no reference or warning that voltage above 13.2 can damage fan. Googling around I did find several instances of this issue and other reps relating board should not see more than 13.9. Video of installing reg. https://youtu.be/1wyxDdn8Cpo?t=129

RE: Hanging porta-bote from tc's turnbuckle brackets?

Thanks Silver- though weights on the camper location I don't see as problem having a hard time picturing, I was really curious about a 12' boat on the side of a 8 1/2' camper.. Link is a 10' http://www.vancouver.hm/portabote7.JPG

'Pod' speakers would be another search term. If its that eyeball looking thing in the corner that was my first thought-

RE: 2000 Fleetwood Camper - Owner's Manual?

I would definitely ensure tires are up to task and plan replacement before hitting the freeway if needed. Regardless of age or condition as F150s came with P rated tires and you need something rated for the planned weight. Jacks (100# or 25#ea) were standard equip on the Angler, so part of listed weight, electric conversion wont add any real weight. The 2001 brochure lists the Angler 8B.

RE: 2000 Fleetwood Camper - Owner's Manual?

We have an 01 Fleetwood Elkhorn and have the owners manual. It is very generic included with all models and covers basic functions, what to do etc but would apply to virtually any camper. Does not contain any specific information. IE, Might mention dumping black/grey tanks but doesn't list capacities or location of valves. There are no wiring, plumbing schematics, no structure drawings etc. There is more useful information in the sales brochure. Operational Appliance manuals (refer, stove, converter etc) were supplied by item manufacture. I never understood why folks remove documentation from campers. EDIT I linked a scanned copy of 2001 and 2002 brochure-list features, specs, which would be 'close' to your 2000 2001 brochure https://drive.google.com/file/d/1IYmwW5FPnpcyL9dAuoF27mLpHqqL0tbq/view?usp=sharing 2002 brochurehttps://drive.google.com/open?id=1xtjJaBzbc8zMq9BhfHz-RtCS6kYgkwHX I could try to scan my manual, hopefully to a pdf file-never tried,see what happens.... And crude copy of 2001 owners manual, covers all 3 models... https://drive.google.com/file/d/1H0_TZVsr07TFgR3Eq7_VctSIyoZhwgfb/view?usp=sharing

RE: Installing Rieco-Titan Swing Away on AF990?

Kind of hard to measure, though the swingout bracket itself extends width (from center out 1 side), it's the rotation of the jack orientation that gives total amount moved if that makes sense... https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/SlideFix/i-zmB43N9/0/8d24f881/O/swingo.jpg

RE: Dually Mud Flaps Required?

Many states do, more to do with debris from exposed tires, commercial specifically. Fenders or where tires are covered usually meets requirements.

RE: Northern Lite campers No Black Tank Clean out

We recently added flush nozzles to our tanks, does make it easy to rinse. For years prior, if water available used the wand, fairly effective, more so I think for cleaning, though really kinda of a pain. Hence install of the nozzles. I still periodically or end of a trip, 'blast' the tank with the wand. But have the option to dump at home. If no water available (for flushing) fill the toilet a couple of times and flush. Our grey tank the inlet and dump valve is at same low end so rinsing more important. I also wouldn't let lack of a 'system' be a deciding factor. Especially if you frequent camps on the road and they don't have rinse water available or faucet screwed up or a type that doesn't allow and you to connect hose. Compromise the camper you really want to have that option and cant use 50% of the time- I think the term is 'that would suck'.
