RE: DC to DC charger

Running that mixed setup, I wonder if your truck batteries are getting overcharged?

RE: DC to DC charger

What I have not seen posted is the fact that even if you use like chemistry batteries in the camper and truck, the capacity and age of the different batteries also affects charging (in addition to the small gauge trailer plug wiring). When you look at the diesels with dual start batteries, they have to be changed out in matched sets to keep optimal charging and power delivery (discharging). Putting in a DC to DC charger helps overcome these differences.

RE: 2018 Wolf Creek 850 wiring diagram

My Arctic Fox jack controller was under the sink. The battery charger and water pump were under the step slightly left.

RE: For POP UP CAMPER owners - sealing seams on vinyl

Years ago when we had a pop up trailer, I used the same sealers people use for hiking boots and jackets. Bee's wax works well but takes some time to apply - There are easy to apply sprays that work but need to be applied more often.

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

So is the receiver drilled incorrectly or the extension tube drilled crooked? I looked at the picture and cannot figure which is faulty. As others posted, each tube can be inserted into the receiver individually and pinned, then the clamps are applied. Once fully assembled and tightened, there is no reason to touch the clamps and the double truss can be installed or removed as a complete assembly.

RE: DC to DC charger

I am collecting the pieces for a Renology 60A DC to DC setup. I run half worn out AGM's because they are free to me, so every once in while my solar cannot keep up and the batteries don't have sufficient capacity.

RE: 36" Hitch Extension for 2" Receiver - Are they Made?

Let's start with what he wants to tow. Tongue weight is biggest issue for a receiver with an extension and rear truck axle with already a heavy payload.

RE: We knew it was coming...

I am letting this thread run, but you guys need to back off the politics and keep the economics focus if you want it to continue. I understand the two intertwine, but management does not want politics on this forum.

RE: Sold Truck and Camper

We actually enjoyed less crowds the first half of the pandemic but that increased once people started suffering cabin fever. Now it has flattened out and we are looking forward to off season camping with less crowds.

RE: Occasional Winter Camping??

When young, I would sleep in my car when I skied the Alps. I never had temperatures less than the single digits but awoke many mornings with the interior completely frozen up from breath overnight.

RE: My Coach Net experience tonight.

I had issues getting someone out to change a an inside dual even though I had the spare, wrench and jack. I ended up doing this my self while another roadside service company was trying to track down a provider for 12 hours.

RE: Towing truck camper (expecting first experience today)

Ford uses a switched power connection to the trailer plug. Only when the ignition is turned on is there a connection between truck and camper batteries.

RE: Host Everest Deadbolt Issue

I had to file and adjust the strike plate on my enclosed trailer but on none of my RV's.

RE: Camper Tie Downs for an OBS Ford

Torklift typically are no drill application if specific to that truck generation and model. If you already have the Happijac holes and the new version fits them, that may be an option. I wouldn't use stake pocket anchors except for lightest camper shells since you are relying on the truck bed sheet metal to handle all the stresses.

RE: My new race car alternator for LiFePO4 batt bank

Wire size depends on run length and desired amperage. There is not one answer to your question without more detail.

RE: Apple car play or XM radio

Like someone else posted, I used to listen the Canadian stations across the Great Lakes in my youth. I am still close enough to pick up some Canadian stations, but many are getting mixed with local Spanish language stations father south and make my listening sound like I am in the DMZ. In poor reception areas, radio and cell will be worthless and only satellite in open skies will be a choice. I prefer local programing and pre recorded media where there is no reception. I travel to experience the differences in culture and will not be trying bring in CKLW or WMMS or KISW or KXLE or KSIM when not local.

RE: Why shouldn't I go this route? (AC Roof Delete)

We have pets that stay in AC while we are out. When it is like this, we seek a hookup or run the generator.

RE: 19.5 Hankook DH35 vs XDS2

My 19.5's do well on Stevens Pass and wear better than any LT tire I owned.

RE: 19.5 Hankook DH35 vs XDS2

This past Winter was not really trying. We missed most of the inland snow when we stayed on the coast during last year's dump. Wear is good even though they are more aggressive than the Continentals. They go well on unpaved roads even when wet with less slippage and tread packing. I bought mine online and had the local Schwab mount and balance them. I have been going to same store since the early 90's and know most of the staff. There is one store closer to me, but they don't have the knowledge or skills of this established store.

RE: 19.5 Hankook DH35 vs XDS2

Last Fall, my Toyo M655's were about $425/ea shipped to my door. I could find a matched manufacter date set when I looked locally.
