RE: Adding extra solar panel to 2019 Northern Lite

I have an old 67 watt thin film Unisolar panel. I added a new 170 watt GoPower mono crystal panel. Both have the same voltage rating and have worked very well together for about a year now. Or splurge and get two new panels.

RE: Need Help Fast

I feel for you having just gone through this scenario myself when my engine seized. Fortunately my brother has the same truck camper and he picked it up on his truck delivering it to my house and had a regular tow truck deliver my F-250. 3500+ dollars later, I have a really nice running rebuild with 1800 miles on it now. Best wishes for a speedy resolution to your truck issue.

RE: Funny, sad and embarrassing.....

As hard as you try, sometimes the best of plans are laid to rest. Glad there wasn't a fire.

RE: Anza Borrego to the Sequoia’s for Thanksgiving Break

That was a change in conditions. Great trip.

RE: TR: The Road to winning a National Championship

Wow! What an adventure between logistics, distance, and weather. Quite an accomplishment of determination, congratulations... I guess for some reason you had to replace your factory fridge vent cover with a Red Green certified replacement...

RE: Step upgrade for my Arctic Fox

Just watched both videos. Nicely done, very informative. I have similar steps but don't use them due to interference issues with my slide out deck. The videos are both a year old, have you made any refinements to the original installation? Take care.

RE: Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend

That's why they call it "fishing" and not "catching" :-) Next year, I'm going to put some effort to fish Mosquito Lake, 25 miles awaf, still deep in the forest. Will need a boat and waders for that lake and it's much less developed. A wild shorelinr except for the small boat access area

RE: Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend

I am a little surprised we don't have more outdoors men here who enjoy fishing and camping like you did..I am always in for a good fishing or hunting story.. And what's better than pan fried trout,I grew up on them..LOL The fish were tasty. Good old truck camper kitchen and butter/salt to make a happy ending... Well, for the fisherman anyway.

RE: Upgrade truck suspension

I put Rancho 9000's all around my F250. Ride is much better. I found that turning them to the strongest setting worked best when loaded with TC.

RE: When will the 2020 Ford Super Duty show up?

The Seattle auto show is in a week or so. See the new trucks then, if I go.

Three Camping And Fishing Videos - An Excellent Weekend VIDEO 1: Great Day For Getting Skunked Fishing VIDEO 2: Every Slice In Time Counts VIDEO 3: Great Campsite Feeding Chipmunks And Steller's Blue Jays Had a great weekend at Walupt Lake again. I've been there several times this summer on my to and from different job sites and events. There's a good amount of gravel road to get there but all worth it. Fishing was god as usual and plenty of hiking. Just a nice place to go and relax. Enjoy...

RE: What percent of the time do you leave your TC on your truck?

The last couple years I've done a fair amount of travel and work camping. I figure close to half the year it was on the truck

RE: Truck Camper Proctology

Sorry you had to cut into your ceiling. Perhaps you can install another light there, night light? 2" plug for hole in desk for wires could work too.

RE: VIDEO: Death Of An Engine - The Final Drive

More power with the new eng? That's great! It will probably get even better with break-in. Glad your back on the road! S Put 50 miles on today. I punch the gas and it definately goes better. Filled the tank and going to get my first mileage calculation soon. 10.5 mpg is the number to beat. Sure is nice having my horse back...

RE: VIDEO: Death Of An Engine - The Final Drive

Wow, that was an exciting video to watch. Do you not have gauges to watch? I have after market gauges and can set alarms if the parameters are breached. Oil pressure, water temp, trans temp, boost and battery voltage are all set to sound alarms. AAA or Good Sam also offers towing memberships so if you break down your oversized vehicle is covered. I can ask my people to send a big flatbed to handle both truck and camper (over 10,000lbs). No need to call a friend to rescue your TC. I have the factory dash which has a gauge and idiot light. I'm thinking about a gauge set that goes in the drivers roof column. Good visability there. The factory gauge did work.

RE: Video: Introducing Kitten To The Truck Camper

We lost our 19 year old to kidney disease this year. He traveled with us from the time he was three months old. He had been all over the U.S. and Mexico. He loved riding in the car, taking walks, being in the trailer even when it was just parked in the driveway. I'd let him in for a couple of hours and then go get him. Sometimes he didn't want to come out. Cats are good traveling companions. I was very fond of Charlie. Doubt I'll ever have a pet like him again. Archie is still developing socially. He will earn his own place in our hearts.

RE: Video: Introducing Kitten To The Truck Camper

The Cat went on his first camping trip this past week. We drove out to the Lost Coast area of King Range. Long drive. He did have problems with the carrier and ended up screaming and twisting in it. So he came out on his leash. At that point, he went to the back of the SUV and slept with the dogs for the rest of the way. Didn't need to use the crate at all. Bat-dog was very good with him the entire time. At camp, he had his tether and came in and out of the camper as he liked. It let him check out the grass and logs, but not get into any of the burrows under the logs. He made a lot of friends around the camp. Whenever he came outside, he first checked to see if the two dogs across the way were out - if so, he hung out at the door. If not, he explored his campsite. That is a cute little bugger.

RE: VIDEO: Death Of An Engine - The Final Drive

Sure was handy that your buddy was able to take care of the TC. Did you ever figure out what happened to the eng? Scott The tow for the truck was easy. The camper not so easy like an unknown amount of time to find a way to haul. My brother was thankfully willing and able to come with his truck, late night by then. The oil pump, either catastrophic failure in the pump or the sump tube cracked and admitted air causing a loss of oil suction. The oil filter was full of air when I removed it which reinforces the cracked tube theory. Also that the engine seized within a few seconds makes you think air was pumped through the passages blowing out the lubrication the bearings had. The new engine works great, noticeably more power. Looking forward to those first gas mileage numbers.

RE: Roadmaster Sway Bar 2018 F350 4X4

That's a beast. I have front and rear sway bars on my 2000 F-250 but not that big. I think my front and rear are both 1-1/4. Will have to measure. I do ride pretty well with the help of Rancho 9000 shocks.
