RE: Project B.I.G. Built-in Inverter Generator

Awesome build! Curious on the sheet metal bits, where edges touch other surfaces, folds etc. Will vibration cause noise? On our built-in, though loud outside not too bad inside, even though on isolators ,its the vibration that's transferred thru out camper that makes it seem loud..Id be tempted to add rubber between mount plate and camper. But not to distract-enjoying your efforts. Like the remote mounting of panel

RE: Sun lite Eagle SE cargo light wiring

Looking around (not to many pics of 28year Sun-lites) but umbilical should have exited at left front corner as mentioned. This on a '97, hacked with a piece of extension cord. I could see a p/o rerouting to rear of camper if using trucks bumper receptacle, not cutting off in a way that cant be relocated. Some how lights wiring on roof gets down below, This is a '98, wires drop down inside a sleeve, again left front corner. If you cant find where they exit camper, possibly finding inside might help trace where they go (or use to).

RE: Glowsteps questions

Wonder if OP was looking at the Revolution steps instead of Glowstep? They are a lot more expensive, comparable 4 tread about 200+ for the revolution bracket (which wouldnt work on most TCs) 4 tread Glowstep with stowNgo bracket, landing gear feet about 410+, same in Revolution about 640+

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Enjoyment, other than just the 'doing', be a ways off. Good luck. I'll be following. Curious how you got the camper up into the truck, that must have been interesting.

RE: Glowsteps questions

Cant address comparison to BF steps or whether traction sufficient or equal to? Ive never slipped on ours, the ribs are about 1/16" deep 1/8" apart- few pics that might show details if it helps.. width=640 width=640 width=640 By description I assume your looking at stairs with the stow&go bracket? If so the rubber snubbers only pull stairs pins into slots of bracket. So yes a ratchet from sides of bracket around stairs to other side of bracket would secure. There's even slot small strap hooks would fit. Though actually not sure if your were addressing these(T/L glowsteps), what you have or the B/f steps. As far as the adjustable feet I don't consider them adding any 'safety' feature, only ability to adjust for uneven ground. For safety/secure walking on stairs handrail is about the best bet for any system.

RE: 88 Lance Truck Camper wiring to 90 Chevy silvarado

Ha doesnt get more manual than unplugging. Might an option on some units. I was thinking simple switch on the charge line at minimum. My assumption was, given age of camper doesn't have battery separation? Pretty sure the Chevy is hot .

RE: 88 Lance Truck Camper wiring to 90 Chevy silvarado

Yes, agree but just be aware the hot (always?) lead from truck though will charge camper when running, camper will draw on this wire when truck off, draining truck battery(s). Need an ignition/automatic disconnect or minimum some type manual switch to isolate when truck not running.

RE: How do you get to your spare tire with the camper on?

On our 01 I rotated the hoist assembly to point at right wheel well. Fairly easy on early superduty. Dont know about recent years

RE: Help - Unsafe or Rock it? width=480 Looking around found a few listings stating its 9'6" but many more of an 1989 LC580 at 10'6". IF it were a 10'-6 thats 30" overhang on a 8' bed. Yes DO check cab height

RE: RV door window glass in Denver

Yes but following linked products will lead to options roughly inner/outer frames only ±$30 up (inner or outer only 12 each) Frames with glass $±50 up Glass only ±$20 up tempered clear opaque appears getting dark tint glass, clear glass or complete assemblies in white bit difficult but if ok with black frames (if needed) or clear opaque glass I could 'prime' by tomorrow my zip.

RE: Backup Camera Setup with AND without a Slide-in Camper

I have aftermarket license camera on truck that is hardwired to radio/monitor. Mounted another camera on camper. It (video) is wired to a transmitter, triggered by camper bu lights. Its receiver is mounted behind truck tail light. The power lead from truck BU light that ran to camera rerouted thru 3way switch. From switch 1 lead goes to trucks BU camera, the other lead goes to camper receiver. Switch selects which camera is powered or sending signal. On the video cable to monitor unplugged truck camera at rear, install an RCA 'Y'. To it plugged in both truck and camper receiver video cables. All I need to do is flick the 3way switch to have wanted camera.

RE: AF 1140 Dry Weight

Last page of their brochure kind of explains it, also list added weights Dry weight- with standard features before ANY options, including mandatory 'value' package, which TCM lists, as that is the only way can be ordered. (which IMO if you can only order with included value package should be listed as the base/dry weight, 3,465 +595 =4065#. Then add options (TV, solar etc), then add wet weight (water, propane)- then all personal items (food, clothes, pots, utensils etc).

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

Our scooter rack. I ended up adding the turnbuckles to stop side to side rock. At 6' long the movement from center out is amazing how little at hitch it takes. Our turnbuckles (amazon link)are 3/8x 16" but the body is extruded aluminum, rated about 200#. They really dont see that kind of load. Ive had no issue (luck). Cost of steel about 3-4xs but rated at 3000#+. On the rack side I just drilled holes for the J. Opened up eye to fit over tow hook. I was going to say 14" seemed close to ground, ours is 26" (receiver). But with drop hitch, bottom of rack is 14" but never hit it.

RE: Help. Will This Work?

... That article doesn't say it was designed for a long bed, although it was pictured on a shiny log bed Ram dooley. 1st sentence of TC article "TCM reviews a CampLite 8.6 hard side, non-slide, wet bath truck camper designed for long bed trucks." Not saying you couldn't put on short bed truck, physically will fit- but putting on shorter truck bed "may" induce unwanted results. some variables

RE: My Folding Porch

Sometimes on obscured P/B pics you can right click on them, then select 'view image' and it will open the picture. Doesnt always work, need to use your back button to return to original thread.

RE: step solutions

Even seeing pictures of this happening I really have a hard time understanding how or where. It would seem the pivot holes or pins would have to be worn ALOT to absorb the movement (assuming treads stayed parallel when new). On Steves picture there's a good inch loss between each tread.
