RE: Fridge Issues

check the overheat fire prevention switch If it tripped the pilot will not light no matter what you do. First check that there is no yellow residue anywhere in the back of the fridge. if there is you need a new cooling unit (4 hour swap) if not check the switch there are you tube videos on that. Magnetic ones can be reset. the two wire with a center pin on the chimney above the burner has to be replaced

RE: How 4-season are 4 seasons Lances?

the better you insulate your camper the fewer times your furnace cycles and the less power you draw. I also switch to flannel sheets and trick down comforters in the winter. We like the camper cool when we sleep at night so the thermostat is usually set for 55F Daytime 65F. Neither of us likes being in a hot room.

RE: How 4-season are 4 seasons Lances?

I have camped down to -5F in my old non 4 season Lance 1055. My new Lance 1062 is only marginally better. I will still do a full inside the entry door layer of refelctix. Same for windows and skyights plus use the snap on pads for the sky lights. I also put fiberglass batting behind every external compartment door and in the waste valve area just like I did in the 1055.

RE: Truck tires

I had separation issues on my Dually. PO had put aftermarket wheels on an it put the sidewalls of the rear tires too close to each other and they would overheat. There really should be well over an inch of space between the closest part of the two tires under load. I ended up putting in a spacer. I haven't had a blow out in 5 years since I did it vs one inner dually a year on the right side ( high crown loads).

RE: rear-view camera

good afternoon...... thanks for reply's.... Question I have regarding rear view cameras>>>. I'm looking for guidance not only backing up in reverse, BUT also as I tow my Geo-tracker or anything else to check while driving will they allow that?????? when T/C is loaded??? If the camera i listed as rearview it is designed for full time use, back up cameras are designed for use when backing only. Some companies make multiple camera systems. I have a 3 camera. one on the back of the camper, one on the back of the horse trailer an one inside the horse trailer to monitor the horse in transit. Mine is by Tadibrothers

RE: Rv loan rates!

we bought a camper last year 10K trade in on our 16 year old Lance 1055 that we bought used for 20k so out of pocket cash we bought a loaded 2019 Lance 1062 in mint condition for 38k no payments no interest and we own it

RE: DRW vs SRW safety, tire blowout

having had a rear tire blow out ( full disintegration not a slow loss of air) on both a F350 SRW and and F350 DRW at freeway speed with a 4600 pound Lance 1055 in the bed. I can honestly say that controlling the vehicle an bringing it to a full stop in the DRW was a piece of cake. The SRW was a white knuckle affair to keep from rolling and I am a trained Emergency Vehicle operator (fire engines and ambulances). I will stick with DRWs

RE: Furnace on while moving

go right ahead. just remember to stop short of gas stations and turn off the furnace and the fridge before pulling in to fuel then remember to turn them back on after you leave the pump area

RE: Sway bar for F350 pia

I had a 2003 F350 4x4 longbed with Airlift 5000 bags and a roadmaster anti sway bar and it fit fine. As I remember there were 2 models of anti sway bars from roadmaster one that fit with airbags.

RE: How to keep a TC from being stolen when not on the truck?

I don't worry about it. It’s not worry, it’s precaution. I lock my truck when I go to a restaurant etc. I lock my house when I leave. And you lock your camper. That said never leave your camper off the truck with the jacks extended. Always lower it to the point where the back bumper is just a few inches off the ground. Then take the remote with you in the truck if that's what you need for piece of mind

RE: Frame Stiffing to reduce Porpoising?

The camper tags lie. take the rig with a normal camping load on board to a cat scale and weigh it. Stop guessing, get a real world number.

Bummer on the dates. I'm the onsite Medic at a Horse show in Vacaville at that time.

RE: Crack in plastic shower wall Lance 1172

Places that do Fiberglass boat repairs can probably fix that right up for you and make it look good.

RE: Slide when mounted to truck

as a fellow horseman and owner of a truck camper with a slide and having trailered my horses coast to coast doing the Horse Hotel route. I don't take the camper off the truck and I don't disconnect the trailer. I off load the horses get them bedded down watered and fed and muck the trailer and fill the water buckets before stuff can freeze over. Then I pull to where ever I am spending the night at the facility (usually where they have a electrical hook up for me) Level the truck, extend the rear jacks to just touching , extend the slides and call it good. Make sure you have your Coggins and Horse health Certificate or they will not allow you to off load your horse for the night. and make sure you enter all weigh and ag stations with signage that all vehicles hauling livestock must enter. have proof of horse ownership with you too.

RE: Electric jacks manual crank

if you need to replace it. The Reico Titan is a 99% plug and play replacement. bolt holes are the same , motor speed is the same, capacity is the same. only thing you need to change is the plug receptacle on the camper.

RE: A new adventure for me.

Hopefully this job pays mega bank, because I can't imagine having to live in a truck camper on the job site. I do it for up to 16 days at a time. It's actually quite relaxing. No commute. Wake up, make coffee and breakfast, pull on the work clothes and you are there when you walk out the door. Lunch you have a full kitchen and private bathroom, end of the day you walk to the parking area go in the camper crack a beer, shower and have dinner and kick back.
