RE: 1998 11M Fleetwood Caribou

I have manual for 2001 Fleetwood, it is what was came with all models. Very generic but should be similar for a 98. The sales brochure list capacities and features for the different models. All in PDF format if helpful-

RE: Electrical Short Under Sink on 2019 1062 Lance

What do those round plastic covers hide? If that interior box removable might give more room. height=480 width=640 Can't imagine cabinet face frame removable without some de-construction. But I'd also be inclined to pull new wire.

RE: Leg supports for truck camper storage

There are made made leg extensions with different means to attach, yield 6-8" length. Happijacs style that bolt to existing jack pad or Atwood style where you cut off pad and leg inserts into ext and pins (like tongue jack foot). Easy to fab if you have means. / HappiJac 182495 /amazon Atwood 40302

RE: Time to Develop a Solution for Scissor Stairs (Bigfoots)

IF the angle of individual treads differs when deployed- stairs have problem, they shouldn't. Increasing the distance between treads (lessening the number) certainly wouldn't make easier to use. Older thread-same issue on B/F camper. Owner going to repair though ended up replacing, may give some ideas if trying to fix. Adding second bar good idea. Landing whole project in itself. But if you can fix stairs more could be devoted to landing. Lowering landing to bottom of camper would make that last or top step into/out of camper- pretty tall.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

Hesitant to comment as I'm impressed with the getting it done progress your making but question the right angle gravity fresh fill hose. It looks like its going to be painfully slow to fill tank? Replacement trough type are still available though style with screw on cap/hatch lid helps keep clean. Also allows insertion of short hose into fill hose to take water quicker. but you'd need a straight shot on fill hose... Is this how set up on old camper? Your inverter set up is awesome, other than whatever you want, way beyond what I could imagine needing to run.

RE: loosing old members

Thanks for finding that. Those old forum names bring back a lot of memories. I know there is a newer one, but I still can't find it. I think I may have started the thread, maybe 4 or 5 years ago.???? Looking for something else and this popped up link to the missing 'newer' 10 year member list 05/2012 and the older 2007 list

RE: Fantastic Fan install - no power :-(

If it would give enough room possibly changing knob to a crank arm handle?

RE: Replacing gas regulator and hoses

I'd agree with others, just use existing regulator, remove the brass fitting on outlet and replace with hose thats long enough to be easily threaded to bottle. amazon/Camco-59843-Pigtail-Propane-Connectors Mounting the reg to wall would be nice.

RE: Finaly got my new ARB locker!

My only experience is a front ARB in our jeep Dana 44 I installed back in 2002. Clean air and annual oil changes, not engaging under hard load-never had an issue 18 years. From completely open to 100% full lock with the push of a button.

RE: Propane gennie maintenance in cold winter

Ours when setting the connections to the fuel solenoid lose connection (corrosion). If I don't hear a loud click (solenoid opening) I stop & go clean the terminals to regain contact.

RE: Windows

The 'seals' really only hold glass in. Water getting into mounting channel should exit via drain holes to exterior. There shouldn't be any direct path from inside the channel to wall behind the mounting flange. Square windows with corner joints are prone to leaking but full extruded radius windows usually only have a single butt joint, hopefully on a vertical. The rather large gap in the seal could allow a lot of dirt accumulation but still shouldn't leak, at least into wall. Looking briefly found this on another forum

RE: Repair Help (Sealing)

Likely not paint but vinyl laminated to ply, looks like luan. Will some of the original area be covered by new location? Or how far do they need to be moved. Id lean toward using thin material screwed using existing holes, bedded in caulk to cover 'oops'. Aluminum flat bar, 1/8" or better would work. Possibly covering old location extending to beneath new location.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

The 'speed bump' thread is where I got 1st picture of his truck from. The damaged towers, current condition of them and improper bolting was already present. I don't think that was source. Once brace became unbolted though did add to damage. Op was unaware of what things should look like. Mounts failed and simply assumed by the result it was mounts design at fault. Cant say about installer, if- as I think, towers were already as shown they just tried to make what he had work. Little surprised nothing was said but who knows. Going out on a limb just from what info available- I dont think excessive force is being applied, just what is supposed to resist isn't there. All mute & I could be all wet- the OP has some project time ahead..

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

As near as Ive gleaned-yes those towers are front bed mounts. If you know (or other member has) someone with simular truck a peek under would verify. Install inst-likely not exact model but shows tower a box wnjj replied while writing-awesome! Thats why Im leaning toward a precondition on the towers (used truck?) even with the bolted braces just doesn't seem damage shown could have occurred if everything was as it should be. I'd also agree since they (Towers) need repair anyway- might not require fabbing belly bar and be better to rework what you have? But thats up to you.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

The style of TL mount is different than shown earlier, and a lot different than mine. OPs are not welded at top to a piece of angle but end is bent and bolts to bed cross member. Shown in previous thread. IF the bolt drops, upward force from camper the flat bar brace can 'slide' inboard, that in turn breaks lower weld. 2 issues-1st This style works in conjunction with frame tower and existing bolt plate, Ops towers are shredded. Second and primary is instead of a 1/2" bolt going thru mount into bed someone dropped a smaller bolt thru. While there is a lot of torn metal it sure looks like someone cut out the top of towers? Mount brace is supposed to mount to it. Issue here is from what I gather, the bolt that's supposed to go up thru is also the bed mount... If OP can fab a belly bar should hold camper, really doesn't take that much. The existing situation/condition & way it was bolted, only option was to fail. Still need to address bed mount towers, if that is what it also does.

RE: 2002 Lance 1025 on new Ford F-250 with camper package? Don't know if fits, easy enough to check, A being the most common issue. 'A' from camper floor to underside of nose =minimum from Truck bed to top of cab (or cab ID lights if equipped). Ford cab is a bit taller so this more often problem with older campers 'B' width of camper floor- rarely an issue 'C' width of bump-out if it has. Total of B & C is needed minimum width of tail gate opening. On ours I need to load with camper pretty close to right wheel well for this bump-out to clear left tailgate pillar 'D' Front of camper rubber bumpers to back side of rear wall. Minimum distance of trucks front bed wall to taillights. Again on ours, I had to add spacers behind campers rubber bumpers as camper was 1/4" away from taillights, least crooked loading and camper would be against one of the taillights.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

By description failure point? "So what always breaks is the top of the triangle here in the pic. Where the support bar meets the upper mounting plate. The very top of this pic. In my old set the welds gave out between the support bar and the main structural member." I'm having a hard time understanding how camper (without ripping its mounts) is applying enough force? it would almost seem that downward force, possibly side to side, would need to be applied for that upper weld to fail. Have you contacted Torklift? NRALIFR-Curious, though doesn't look like with new upper tie off point would give enough angle (and you've solved your problem) why is the lower mount not to the hole in end of insert plate?
