RE: My (our) Ultimate Truck Camper Body Build

Dang! That is just a pleasure to admire. I noted the, what appear, similar to torklift tie downs and also in different orientation in some of the pics- what is there purpose? Was curious about the rack, obviously clears and assuming the spare lives there but what stops forward camper movement. Can you disable rack lights?

RE: OEM AF Stereo replacement--MB Quart RVDVD2.0 & A/B Switch

Nice unit..I've thought about changing ours several times- but its the placement of the ceiling speakers that limits any kind of sound quality so never pursued. Plus current unit doesn't have channel control (balance) only fades between the 2 pairs... hmmm Very directional depending on which side of dinette your sitting... We don't listen to radio often but when we do, anything beyond just background sound its not enjoyable. Might revist..thanks See you got pics showing, sometimes getting a post to go thru is as difficult as the project :)

RE: Tie-down systems performance/safety vs cost

Question on the happijac mounts. Am I correct that one has to drill through the bed of the truck to mount the front mount? Then it mounts through the bottom of the bed into the frame and through the front of the bed to the bracket? Or is it 100% to the bed in the front? I just want to make sure I understand how the system works. link to H/J systems- 3 different p/n listings for an 07 but similar as far as installation

RE: (((Update))) we bought it / 1995 Lance squire lite 185

... I'm really not interested in what its worth because its exactly what I wanted. That is its real worth. Used market is limited so finding what you want in features usually is the compromise-. In the OPs case though- subtracting the extras, included tie-downs, honda gen, aftermarket radio, handle, new skylight, mattress etc- in a camper wanted- sounds pretty good to me. Question the 5gal tank capacities

RE: Carbon Monoxide and Propane Gas Alarms

I replaced our no longer made CCI lp detector with an MTI Industries unit thats pretty close match (mounts in cut wall):$47 amazon link width=640 non replacable battery...5 year life span Replaced old Atwood carbon monoxide alarm with a Kidde KN-COPP-B-LPN unit with digital display, replaceable batteries: about $20. A lot smaller than the Atwood but covered screw holes Amazon link... width=640 Our smoke alarm failed and here in CA can no longer buy simple units with replaceable battery, so had one shipped to friend out of state...

RE: Opinion on these tie-downs?

To use with Torklift frame mounts also need to change the short rods as these are setup for HJ mounts.

RE: Getting the truck ready?

Curious on the cordset mentioned. Mostly the 12' length. Replacing umbilical, if hardwired into camper is 12' enough to reach the bumper plug? Or planning to make connection outside? Secondly does your '15 ram disconnect/isolate trailer charge line when engine off?

RE: Brophy Tie Downs?

Happijac would be another option. Not sure the Brophys adequate for weight of your Lance

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

I agree completely to the ease of getting broken and draining tank, very vulnerable. Ours, an '01 Elkhorn, was built with valve factory installed on back wall. Obviously OPs '02 Lance, another mentioned on his S&S, actually pretty common. I finally was able to reroute line and relocate valve to inside of gen compartment, our of harms way but also dumps to ground instead of on top of bumper. But only because I cut hole in back wall to utilize and open up basement for another project- (carry ladder) otherwise drain line inaccessible.

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

Though some campers do have drain valves in a compartment, many the fresh water tank drain line is routed to rear and valve simply mounted externaly on wall. The low point plumbing drains just extend out bottom of camper.

RE: Anybody Know what this is?

Ours also use simular hose cap to cover access to slide-out manual crank- seems a bit low for that though. Spigot definitely drain

RE: New 12V outlets

They work well for small amp/loads. Havn't used in camper but several elec projects where i didn't want to hardwire power. If making say panel some place with these and low voltage (USB) outlets I would still add a larger std 12v outlet for items that may need larger current supply. Depends on planned use.

RE: vibration

Off the wall but Ive had to replace front hub bearings twice on our 01 F250. Though usually starts out as unknown low rumble before it becomes audible and felt. Jacking up, wheel flops around when it gets bad, Ive heard if it gets bad enough wheel can literally fall off.

RE: New Member with Used Camper

You can also download owners manual, though they only go back to 2015, should be similar. They also have linked articles and pdfs of individual manufacture components/systems.

RE: Fantastic fan with no thermostat?

The Honeywell low voltage thermostats linked are only $12.49. Myself I don't find 'apps' convenient verse pushing a button. But if you have majority of parts on hand outlined WiFi control sounds like fun project. FYI: 9988-xx number is the last digits of thermo part number, not the fan unit.

RE: Fantastic fan with no thermostat?

Just that bored:) but really curious how your fan was supposed to function as it sounds as though dome only open when fan on which makes no sense. I could see the power dome function only to close when raining, but not being unable to use passively. Plus is the linked upgrade dome can be power raised/lower with fan off pushing switch, also no need for external thermostat.
