RE: Flat towing with your truck camper

Gulfman I have the blue ox towbar and breaking assist. I tow a two door wrangler sport behind my f350 dually and host cascade. Hitching is made easy with the telescoping hitch bars. Breaking system is simple and easy to set up. I am pleased so far with the blue ox tow system. Also, I replaced my wired tow lights with wireless and wished I had sooner. Barry

RE: Norcold gas & electric fridge

We are in Maggie Valley and the fridge is much better. Maybe the long ride to get here, the temperature is much cooler here in the mountains. Fridge is 35f with a few ice crystals forming on the fins. It was 98f and 80+ humidity when we left Corapeake. I must of been asking too much of the norcold. Thanks everyone for your tips and expertise. So nice of you to take time to help us. Barry

RE: Norcold gas & electric fridge

No yellowing, not as cold on electric. I have put a block of ice in the fridge, it is hanging out around 39f. We are stopped now for a break. I will try and find a service center this week.

RE: Norcold gas & electric fridge

The fridge is nearly new. It is on a host cascade. The flame looks good, so I need 0f in the freezer and 35-40 in the fridge.

Norcold gas & electric fridge

Headed to the smokey mountains tomorrow morning. Started fridge on propane yesterday. Freezer is at 18.9 f. Fridge is 53 degrees. Can someone help as to why the fridge temp is so high? Never had this issue before with norcold. Fan is running behind the refrigerator. I may have to delay our trip if we can't figure things out. Thank you Barry

RE: Foaming diesel

Thanks, I was just curious if I was alone with foaming diesel. I think I'll keep the Ole ford. Barry W

Foaming diesel

Foaming diesel is a puzzle to me. When filling my 2006 f350 it takes forever to get a full tank. If I don't allow the foam to dissolve I miss about 4 to 5 gal from filling my tank. I have pumped thousands of gallons of diesel to John Deere tractors and I had zero foaming issues. Anyone else struggling to fill their ford trucks? Barry

Lp gas

I have a host cascade with the quick attach gas valve and quick connect. I am not able to to get gas flow to my cooking equipment. Would anyone here have suggestions as to what might be going on. All of my equipment work fine on the one lb bottles. I sure would like to utilize the campers gas supply. Thanks Barry

RE: Airxcel Skymaxx 97000

Received my new skymaxx hatch. I have installed the parts from the new one to the skymaxx on my Host. Fourteen months to finally get it fixed. Pins on the bar handle that hold it open or locked closed and broken hinges on the handle assembly. I jury rigged it closed with bungee cords. It was really disheartening for us to have our new camper with this defect and to have to deal with it so long. Skymaxx will not sell parts to anyone, only the whole assembly. I wanted no parts of disturbing the roof seal on our new camper to replace with a new skymaxx. Artic Tern looks like a nice replacement. If anyone is purchasing a new host, please do not get the the skymaxx hatch. It is cheaply made and parts cannot be purchased. Thanks for letting me vent and I hope I've helped someone. Barry

RE: Airxcel Skymaxx 97000

Just got a reply from the service manager that Tom's Camperland will be sending me a replacement hatch. I'm glad to finally have some good news. They used my conversations with them from last year. I didn't ask why so long, just glad to be headed in the right direction. Thanks for everyone's reply. Barry

RE: Airxcel Skymaxx 97000

Makes perfect sense. I will update after my next reach out to the dealership. Thank you for your wisdom. Barry

RE: Airxcel Skymaxx 97000

No accident. It was broke the first day of ownership. I just did not catch it till we were heading for home from Tom's camperland where I purchased it from. For a whole year the parts Dept gave me the run around. Now I'm past warranty. I will never replace it with another airmax product. It is a real shame the company want sell parts needed for repair. I just thought I'd ask here before ordering a replacement hatch. It will be an arctic tern if I can't find parts. Barry

Airxcel Skymaxx 97000

I have a 2022 host cascade tc with the over the bed hatch. Does anyone here have or know of one for parts. I need the two hinges that attach the bar to the vent top. Mfg will only sell me a whole vent. Hoping I might get lucky for parts. If not I will be installing an arctic tern. Thanks everyone. Barry

RE: Beach trip width=640 width=640 width=640 width=640 A few more pictures from our trip. Weather wasn't always sunny. We had a couple of days with 25 - 30 mph and rain. Helps YOU appreciated the nice weather days. Hoping my pictures post. It's a toss up using photobucket. It's the easiest for me to post pictures when it cooperates. Barry *Resized by adding width=640 to the image

RE: Beach trip

Thanks for the advice, it's a lot of work when I get home. Sand finds its way to every hidden area. I put an oscillating sprinkler under the belly and move it a couple feet till I feel it is cleaned. Takes three hours or so. It's the same amount of work for two nights or 14. I stayed 14 nights, can't wait for the next adventure. My truck is an 06, it has been on the beach every year. I had the under carriage undercoated before this trip. It is the second time since new. Trying my best to care of my equipment. Barry

RE: Beach trip I really liked this photo. The host looks ghostly as the sun was setting. Barry

RE: Beach trip

Jerry, we fish from the surf. I enjoy it much more than in a boat. The bite was a little slow but that's ok, it's not all about the catching. We had plenty to keep us fed. Nothing compares to cooking your catch with sand between your toes. Barry
