RE: cleaning the outside of the 5'er

I have a similar issue with the decals peeling off but it's leaving the adhesive which is not pretty at all. They even put some of the decals over some of the windows, why I don't know but the adhesive is not going anywhere until I find a solution.

RE: Reality check - 2006 Chevy 2500

Apparently 2006 was a good model year for the Silverado. 220,000 miles on my 3500 dually, most of them pulling a heavy 5er, & we are still going strong. It gets what it likes, fresh oil every 3000 miles & almost an open checkbook when it comes to preventative maintenance. X2, but even though the 6.6 diesel can run several hundred thousand miles the components don't have that long to live, eventually things like starters, brake boosters and other things will fail but like mentioned before, keep them maintained and they'll rum for a million miles. Is your 2006 a gasser or Diesel?

RE: Tool box in a long bed?

I just found a small truck shoulder mount box and it sits on the floor of the long bed and I can close my Tonneau cover over it

RE: Retracting jacks while unhooked

Would it work the same if you put heavy duty jack stands under the frame or does it need weight to reset?

RE: Goodyear G614 ,and Endurance Tires

RE: Thanks..and a Slide Question

We had probably the largest camper I could find and it had a slide but the wife is Claustrophobic so she did the camper for about 4-5 years and said she needs more room so now we have 3 slides (in signature...)

RE: Single Slide Truck Lean

We had an AC 1150 and it was slide heavy as the fridge was part of the slide. Every one I saw go down the road leaned a little to the passenger side. I split up my air bags and ran 25#'s on the drivers side and 35"s on the passenger side and that helped my truck balance the load along with stable loads

RE: AF 1140 Dry Weight

We had a 2000 AC 1150, loaded it was 4200#'s so YRMV

RE: getting trapped inside a park

And if you choose not to decide you still have made a choice... You can check out any time you like, But you can never leave. Someone should make a song with that phrase. :)

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

For our AC 1150 I put in lower stableloads and air bags and it rode much better. I split up the air bags as that unit had a slide and they always lean towards the passenger side so that side got 35#'s and the driver's side got 25#'s of pressure and she rode very well. But that was 4200#'s not 2800 so YRMV

RE: Front Hitch receiver F-250

The dual support is ideal but I have the same Curt receiver on the front of my 2006 duramax and I've been ok with a clamp like this That I found through the link Buzzcut1 posted. I use a similar clamp on the bike rack on the back of our fiver and it does help the sway (depending on the weight of your load) I carry a 3500 propane generator on the front and use some of the ratchet straps to hold and to stabilize the unit to the truck frame/body.

RE: My Folding Porch

This, I like the side step idea if you're towing a trailer or boat. Also I used a super truss under the 1150 to add a basket for the generator and the side step would give easier accessibility. I have a similar setup, only narrow to fit between the lights. The purpose of mine is to bridge out over my trailer tongue and turn the steps 90 degrees for a side exit. If anything a porch is SAFER because it allows you a wide stable place to step out and get your bearings before negotiating the scissor steps to the ground. For anyone of any age. Plus you may not want to stand on the ground, such as in the case of wet muddy conditions. Sit on the porch under the awning and enjoy the rain, high and dry.

RE: What is wrong sir?

If it were me I would make a nice flat bed trailer with it

RE: truck campers require registration like a trailer camper?

The insulation alone would be a nightmare to replace and if you looks at the construction depending on the year, it might have wood walls then those would harbor the mold also. Then there's the duct work and wiring, I'd pass... OK so the flooded title mite be a bad idea. can't the interior be completely stripped then pressure wash all the mold w/ vinegar? but the idea of a none clear title TC is still a possible way to save a few $s. I really like scratch and dent sales. remember this truck & TC will only be used a couple times a year so initially won't be a a big financial burden.

RE: truck campers require registration like a trailer camper?

In Oregon we have a title and registration for pick up campers and we bought ours with a damaged title, it was knocked off the stands and the guy we bought from used to work at a large trailer company (that went down on 2008). Anyway he bought it at an auction and repaired it thus the damaged title. At least with this method you know if your rig had previous issues, if it was not in place it would be easy to pass off rigs that had damage in the past to an unsuspecting buyer.

New Thor subsidiary to use European manufacturing methods

THOR Industries, Inc. has announced the formation of Hymer USA, a new subsidiary focused on producing and marketing RVs using European manufacturing practices, automation and control standards, a first for the North American RV industry. Here's a link, short article but wondering if this will help much, they don't elaborate much;

RE: Carriage 5 th who roof reseal

I reached out to the RV Armor company and for a 32-33' they quotes the job for $4200 FWIW. They have a fast motion video of the entire two day process and it's pretty extensive but I'll probably do it myself, some day... I can recommend the Liquid Roof product as I did mine and it is still holding up well today, two years later. I posted about it with picures of the process here. If you take a look make sure you read all the way to the end of the thread (9 pages) to see what happened and how it was fixed. Good luck. If I were to do it all over again I think I would use RV Armor. They come to you and guarantee a leak free roof forever. I have not used them nor do I know anybody who has, so cannot unconditionally recommend them, but just tell you what I probably would do. Barney

RE: Camper title and registration.

If we buy a rig outside of Oregon they also need to be inspected, the DMV people walk out to the parking lot and double check the numbers and that's pretty much it. Never took more than a couple of weeks so 147 days is quite the wait.

RE: Too big for a T/C ?

We had a AC 1150 because my wife is claustrophobic and we used it for 4 years but she won out so now we have a 32' 5er

RE: Prepping RV for private sale

X2 on the water damage, I would disclose but I would also fix and show the where and why and show what was done for the fix. If you're straight up it should not be an issue as long as it's fixed, if you really needed a tarp to keep dry it will probably come back to bite you if you don't. Fix the ladder but leave the inspection to the buyer, we have a list that we go through to check everything out before hand as most should.
