RE: Cirrus 920 bath sink issues

Don't think there are many Cirrus owners here, curious I did a search and only found reference about the sink issue on a face book group https://www.facebook.com/groups/1537597943207839/ Did find a lengthy review of a couple that full time in a cirrus mentioning the sink issue ( and the face book group). https://www.truckcamperadventure.com/living-in-a-cirrus-820-the-good-the-bad-and-the-unexpected/ I'll cut out of context "...Have you had any problems with the camper?... Lonnie: Only a few. One of the major design flaws is the fold-up bathroom sink. We appreciate the idea behind a fold-up sink, but the sink does not drain properly, sometimes not at all. If there is a bit of water left in the bowl and you fold it up, the water leaks out of the bottom, all over the place. It’s a mess. There’s a Facebook group for Cirrus owners and we all have the same issue. One brave soul took his sink off of the wall to investigate, finding very insufficient plumbing. First, there is no P-trap. On top of that, the drain line measures just 3/4-inch and drains upward. It’s no wonder it doesn’t work! Our next major project is to re-do the bathroom, starting with ripping out that sink and opting for a small corner sink..." ----------------------------------------------------------------- 01 Ford F250 4x4 DRW Diesel, 01 Elkhorn 9U https://i.imgur.com/XPxpfS8.jpg Our camper projects page

RE: Big Foot Truck Camper NO taillights. Any ideas?

Owners manual for truck better source but... There are fuses in both cab (#6 20A controls relay) and engine bay (#9 20A) fuse boxes related to trailer tow turn/stop. There are also couple of relays. Why (if blown) could be numerous causes. Left and right turn/brake separate wires.. edit said you checked fuses So checking receptacles would be next. Noted you have bed plug so check bumper plug too. Not clear on camper, do the taillight park lights within work, backup?

RE: Signature picture

That's what I got originally- path to picture couldn't be found. Possibly if directory path restored picture would have reappeared (if I hadnt already deleted trying to restore). Since I cant upload, I assume to same directory- should have waited it out. Noted, though seems a lot less sig pics in threads, some still show?

Signature picture

Noted my sig picture missing, went to my preferences and it showed no picture selected ( but show option to delete current picture). Tried to add new picture but got error "The following problems were encountered while processing your request: > An unexpected error has occurred. Please try again. " Tried deleting old pic then add new (same picture different name), same error? edit playing with options... ----------------------------------------------------------------- 01 Ford F250 4x4 DRW Diesel, 01 Elkhorn 9U https://i.imgur.com/XPxpfS8.jpg Our camper projects page

RE: waterfilter for eagle cap 1165

Only reference I saw was in the brochure for that year, nothing in the owners manual. If you received all the documentation with camper might have something for the faucet and/or filter that was used. If there's a loose 1/4" line it may have had drinking water faucet. Generally the filter is tapped off cold line from main faucet, housing mounted under sink. Assume you have an extra hole on sink... There are many companies that sell complete kits with faucet, filter & housing, necessary fittings to install- under $100. Nothing camper brand specific that would be required to add filter/faucet. If cold main is already tapped with valve one less step. Curious why someone would remove unless you have whole house filtration.

RE: Putting some glide in the ride….

You might consider researching/adding 'ping' tanks to your air system. Older thread that motivated me 10 years ago. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/25534281.cfm They increase the compressible volume without affecting the support. Though I've never been in camper, on the road driving, night & day difference in response to road conditions.

RE: Need your help, ideas

We also used the EZ step for few years. The 12" height made it much easier for Margaret to get in. The retrieval not so much, I'd just wait for her to get in the pick up the step and store behind my seat. On unlevel ground you need to pay attention, especially getting out... I might suggest what we finally did, but its not an inexpensive solution. Installed Amp-Research power running boards. When deployed they split the distance and fold out lower than most fixed running boards. Top of step height when out is 12", tread is about 6" wide so very secure. Our door sill is ~28". Standing on step you can almost fall in. Even my 90 year old mom is able to get in. I installed so saved a bit but to Margaret they are worth every penny.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Got ID lights installed in Grill.. thanks for the suggestion Bedlam What’s the purpose? Are you thinking someone can’t see your headlights and running lights? https://one.nhtsa.gov/cars/rules/standards/conspicuity/TBMpstr.html Our new replacement roof does not have cab lights, so truck no longer legal. Truck is over 80" wide (exclusive of mirrors) so cab lights like on your F450 are legally required. Reluctant to replace due to drilling new roof though likely will at some point. This, placing ID lights into grill, was an easy interim token effort to satisfy requirement temporarily. I doubt, being a pickup, I'd ever get cited for lack of ID/clearance lights but where I can I try to be within the laws.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Ya, like the J. Geils Band song "Rust Stinks" :D.. Got ID lights installed in Grill.. thanks for the suggestion Bedlam https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Truck/i-xXJnnnm/0/2169a165/O/idlightg.jpg height=446 width=640 Jury's still out, functional but unsure. Looks a bit like the **** magnet left on going thru Pep Boys. Do serve purpose at least for awhile. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Truck/i-cj6CDVM/0/0c108aee/O/idlightk.jpg height=480 width=640 Found another option for cab lights without drilling or wiring. Caboveramerica.com makes lights that don't require drilling or wiring. Remote controlled, Solar charged battery powered cab lights. Pretty slick. But they are really expensive. Camper has ID lights and truck cab lights are switched off because of reflection so battery lights not receiving charge wouldn't be an issue. Hard to justify 10X the cost and I have a new set of cab lights on hand. Maybe after paint has cured awhile, unless these grow on me, install them on cab. The grill lights would probably look OK in-conjunction with cab lights. Things that could be done...

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Ya know...that would be simple- worst case might not satisfy letter of law (mounted high as practical) but at least postpone drilling holes in roof.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Got truck back from body shop that installed new roof skin. Spent good part of the day reinstalling interior I had removed (headliner, visors, trim etc). Another day rewiring, CB, custom interior light that controls exterior 3rd brake light functions, GPS ant etc. I have a lot of funny wiring. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Truck/i-bFVjQ6J/0/93dc6ec8/O/roof2.jpg width=640 height=480 https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Truck/i-NZWqgWx/0/e27f19ee/O/roof1.jpg width=640 height=480 Gosh- why is it leaking? Even heavy fog water dripping inside. Outside of the window rubber all that was visible was the bubbled paint. Knew I had problem but extent surprised me. Pretty sure cause, other than being a block from the Pacific, was bad glass replacement (scratched) few years ago. https://photos.smugmug.com/AnEv942/Truck/i-Lq4NC2q/0/31a73b30/O/roof3.jpg width=640 height=480 I really wanted to attempt repair and if anyplace other than windshield would have. However once I seen the required drilling of 100+ spot welds glad I had it done. 4 days in the shop-done, likely I'd still be drilling:) Probably spend a few hours today putting all my 'stuff' back in the truck. Quandary now is clearance/ID marker lights. Truck is over 80" wide so required but really don't want to drill 15 holes in new roof. Didn't have issue with them on original install but just don't want to do again.

RE: Camper Battery Charging Issue

Sounds like battery dumped a cell, (or no water). Couple of times this has happened to me, one of the batteries dumping cell. As it cant take or hold a full charge fools charger (solar and/or converter) into delivering charge. continuously. most places that sell batteries can test

RE: Help, 2003 Arctic Fox fridge isn’t staying cool when on DC

That has been our experience, fridge will start to warm on extended run time on DC. Mostly due to the 12v heater is less wattage so less btu than gas or AC. Traveling generally hasn't been an issue once the DC charge is resolved, but will run warmer as the day progresses, especially as outside temps rise. But have never lost food due to temps, once stopped returning to gas or shore brings temps down.
