RE: got a new camper

Nice upgrade! Now to find new homes for all the "stuff" so you can find it again. What will you miss most from your previous camper? the over the dinette bunk/storage cabinet that we used for all the dry goods.

RE: Norcold 510.3 - kit 633291

Call this guy. He got my fridge up and running in a half hour, He had to reprogram the optical board ( If you get the NO CO error twice it has to be reprogramme). He is up on 88 in Pioneer but it would be worth it to talk to him Kris Knapp of Knapptech 9165830618

RE: Norcold 510.3 - kit 633291

Recently my optical display board stopped working on my Norcold 510.3 refrigerator. I understand there is a replacement kit (Norcold #633291) is available as the original optical board is no longer available. I'm wondering if anyone has any experience with replacing the optical board with this new kit? Does the refrigerator need to be removed from it's location in the camper to install this kit? Any insight would be much appreciated. TIA The optical board swap is fairly straight forward. its only involves taking off the faceplate (4 phillips screws) on the front of the fridge. I did it on my 641.3 a few weeks ago. The only issue is that the new pigtail that mates up to the fridge is different but the end on the curicut board is the same as the old one. You pop the board out of the new module unplug the new pig tail plug in the pigtail from the old board put the circut board back in place and plug that back into the fridge then remount the system. If you are going to do this get a new thermister while you are at it I'm in Livermore if you need help figuring it out. I replaced the cooling unit, power board, thermister, optical board and high temperature sensor of my fridge in the past year. Basically I have a brand new fridge at 1/3 the cost of a new unit.

I met Ramblin Ralph today

I was up in the Sierras next to the West Fork of the Carson river above Hope Valley. I was packing up to leave and he walked up and we starting talking. He introduced himself and asked if I was on RV.net Such the small world. He is a really nice guy.

RE: Insurance and RAM 5500

For the camper get it it's own separate rider policy, covers it on or off the truck.

RE: Slide out to non slide

12 years, same camper no slide. I use the Lance 1055 over 100 nights a year. I have never felt cramped or felt the need to get a unit with a slide. Nothing to break and full use of the camper at all times works for me. So the camper you had before this one had a slide? nope, used my friends that did. didn't see the need for a slide. We are two adults and 4 dogs. The 1055 fits our KISS principle. If it doesn't move it is less likely to fail. Plus I like being able to just pop into use the bathroom or get to the fridge by just opening the back door while on the road or if I see a spot to fish get to my gear.

RE: Camper looks like its not level

also look at the lance roof it slopes down just a bit from the junction of the nose cap to the back end to prevent water pooling while on the camper. It adds to the visual rearward sloping illusion.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

o on my fishing trip to Lake Amador this weekend I woke up to no power to my Norcold 641-3 fridge no inside power and no power to the selector display. So I checked the easiest things first. the fuses on the camper and the fuses on the power boards. all good. So I popped off the optical display / control button assembly and checked the voltage there. Voltage in, none out. Placed an order with the Norcold Guy on Monday. Board arrived today from Southern California. The wiring from the new module had a plug in to the front of the fridge mine didn't but the plug on the circuit board looked the same so I popped the board out of the housing pulled the fridge plug off the old board did the same with the new board plugged in the old wire and connector to the fridge hit power on and the display lit up. Selected propane and I heard the igniter and flame go on. 2 phillips head screws later I was back in business. I love easy diagnostics and fixes . FYI my fridge is 14 years old and had been on continuously for 12 years so I expect some things to fail. While I was at it I ordered a new power board assembly, because its 14 years old... within 2 hours of making the repair and on AC the freezer is down to 28F and the fridge is at 42F. normal is 14F and 35F

RE: West Coast Jamboree 2022, Who is Interested?

well shoot. I'm out. There has been a shuffling of horse show medics and due to a Equine Herpes Virus outbreak some shows got canceled and others are trying to pick up the slack. On the weekend of the rally Ruth has entered a show to make up for the ones canceled by EHV-1 and they also had their medic drop out. So now I am the Horse show medic for the weekend. Maybe next time.

RE: window caulk

Colored Geocel can't be sold in CA. From what I've read the colored versions violate California Air resources board (CARB) rules , I'm guessing that it has a volatile petroleum component that off gasses. Clear Version has a CARB exemption.

RE: Let's talk air bags...

I drive the same roads near San Jose. 2011 F350 4x4 dually CC lb with a 4600 pound (loaded) Lance 1055. I have upper and lower stable loads and Airbags (for when I tow the horse trailer). Not towing I may put 10psi in the airbags

RE: Trailer connect

Wire it like Lance does. Skip the trucks harness wiring system. Run an 8 gauge wire from the battery through a 50amp relay to the power pin of a dedicated camper bed plug. Truck on camper charges.
