RE: What the ??

Electrical Short Under Sink on 2019 1062 Lance Other Photos I have an electrical short under the sink of our 2019 1062 Lance. Apparently the black rubber insulation rubbed off of a multi conductor wire where it rubbed on the very sharp edge of some plywood. We saw a flash come from that general area when the camper was very new and it blew a camper breaker, but I could never find the problem. The problem did not occur again until a few days when we plugged the camper in at home and it blew a 15 amp house breaker. When I partially retracted the slide, the electrical short went away. So I knew it was something to do with the kitchen slide out. I again looked around in there and found the exposed coper wire were the insulation had been rubbed off. I can fix the wire if I can get to it. Getting to it is my problem. My arms are not long enough to reach the wires very well through the cabinet door opening. My question is: is there a way to remove the wood around the door opening to allow more room to reach in there? Any suggestions are appreciated. BradW

RE: Towing 7000 LB trailer?

I wish I could remember the list of topics we can't discuss without someone getting butthurt.

RE: Finaly got my new ARB locker!

ARBs are great. I installed front and rear in my jeep ten years ago and have never had a single problem with either one.

RE: How to store truck tailgate when off truck

I put down an old piece of carpeting and propped the tailgate against the wall of my garage. Currently I store the tailgate against an interior wall but I have also stored it outside propped against the exterior wall. The tailgate survives just fine when outside since that was the intended use. X2. Pretty straightforward. X3. Yep. My carpet is against the wall and covers the floor where the tailgate sets. I also added a strap on the wall to hold the tailgate up.

RE: Lance Wiring On New Truck

straight to the battery works very well Yep. If you want to run your frig while driving and keep your camper battery charged, that is how Lance recommends you do it.

RE: SUCCESS removing frozen lock nuts on HappiJac turnbuckles

I luv the internet.

RE: SUCCESS removing frozen lock nuts on HappiJac turnbuckles

I have often worked like that, but I grab out near the end of the wrench, put twist on then hit between hand and wrench. I use a hammer, because it is easier to control the hit when using right tool. A hammer works if the bolt/nut is screwed on to something stationary. We talkin' about truck camper tie downs here which are not tie firmly to anything. All you have working for you is mass of everything except the hex nut which you are trying to break free. Mr Newton would suggest the wrench vs the hammer is this situation.

RE: SUCCESS removing frozen lock nuts on HappiJac turnbuckles

Impact wrench? Nope, it's a jam nut on a long threaded stud with a hook on the end, hooked to the truck. You can fashion a redneck shadetree impact wrench of sorts. It actually works pretty good. 1) First, soak them down as mentioned above for a day or so. PB Blaster is pretty good stuff. 2) Then get two 3/4" (mine are 3/4") combination wrenches. One will be used as a wrench and the other will be used as a hammer. Don't use a real hammer, use the wrench because you want speed, not weight. 3) Put one of the wrenches on the hex nut and hold it in place with you left hand (assuming you are right handed) by grasping around the wrench and nut. Leave the other end of the wrench exposed. 4) Take the other wrench and strike the exposed end of the wrench in your left hand as hard and sharply as you can. Make sure you are turning the nut in the correct direction. Right tightly, lefty loosey. Hang on to both wrenches so they don't go flying and knock your teeth out.

RE: loosing old members

Don't know. Steve did me a big favor one time when we bought our 2006 F350.

RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

Bigfootford, thanks for posting the photos of Wayne. That is just about how I pictured him. I wish I had met Wayne in person over the years I knew him via the forum. Brad

RE: Reddog1 "Wayne"

Well, as many of you know (excluding Admin) I was the first Truck Camper Forum mod. I did that job for 5 or 6 years until it became too much for me. I asked Admin for help. Admin selected Wayne as the co-mod. Wayne was a perfect fit. He and I got along great and Wayne’s presence and support allowed me to stay another 5 or 6 years until it was finally time for me to go. Wayne continued for another 3 or 4 years after I left before he passed the torch to the next TC Mod. I really liked working with Wayne because we both shared the same philosophy on doing as little moderation as possible and giving the members as much freedom as possible. We first looked for a reason not to moderator a member’s post instead of looking for a reason to screw around with it for some minor reason. I’ve always thought of forums as living breathing things and an overbearing nitpicking moderator can choke the life out of a forum; forums need room and freedom to breath. Wayne and I both focused our time more on trolls, bullies, and folks trying to use the forum to benefit themselves financially. After I left, Wayne and I still exchanged emails. I first learned of his serious illness several months ago. I knew it was very serious, but he was always incredibly positive in his communication. I had not heard from him in a few weeks and I just sent him an email on Wednesday to check on him....then I found this thread on the forum. I once stood by the bedside of a close friend dying of lung cancer. He told me that he had wasted his life. While I did not agree with that at all, I still thought how sad it was that someone would think that in their final days. Separated by 2,500 miles, I did not know a lot about Wayne, but I do know he did not waste his life. As others have said, he was always eager to help anyone in need of help. He helped me last several more years as forum co-mod and he offered our jeep club a spot on his property to camp when we planned to go out West to the Rubicon Trail. But Wayne’s biggest impact on helping others was his roll as instructor at San Quentin Prison. I’m sure there are countless people who were able to turn their life around with the lessons Wayne taught them in his classroom. He will be missed. While I swapped 1,000’s of emails/messages with Wayne and spoke to him on the phone several times, I never met him in person. If anyone has a photo or video of Wayne they could post, I would appreciate it. Bigfootford, Thanks for posting that video of Wayne on the Rubicon Trail getting some air in his Zuki. He told me about his rig many times and I told him about mine. I tried many times to get Wayne to join us in Silverton, Colorado one summer, but the timing never worked out. As NRALIFR posted, “Wayne was a good member, moderator, and person.” Enough said. Brad

RE: Timbren SES

We had Tembrens on our 2006 F350 drw. We also have them on our 2018 F350. While they are not the "perfect" solution, they did limit rear sag and they added road stability over our stock suspension.

RE: truck swerved with hard braking

I would say you likely need new oem pads on front along with your front rotors turned or replaced.

It's NOT official. I could NOT find such a link on the CDC site. My understanding is the CDC is "considering" changing their recomendation for healthy folks to start wearing masks when outside their home. Me thinks that has always been a good idea, but the Gov't did not want to recomend it earlier due to the mask shortage. If 330 million people went out and tried to buy masks a month ago, there would have been none left for health workers. I believe masks give some limited protection for healthy people. A lot of Japanese were wearing masks in crowds long before the virus.
