RE: Built in quiet inverter generator for truck camper?

I have a built in generac in my TC which loves propane and is noisy, but the biggest issue is the reliable. It runs when it wants. I tow a trailer behind the TC most of the time so I mounted a 2400 Yamaha inside as a backup.Take less then five minutes to run the cord and open the hatch for the exhaust.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

I have a post a few pages back that I stand by, but will add this loans are a tool and are like a pair of shoes not one size fits all. I agree with way2roll folks should enjoy there life but not live above there means. If you can make a payment without over exstending that's your choice. Some people don't have anyone they wish to leave there assets to so who cares if the bank takes it after your gone at least you enjoyed it for a period of time.

RE: 20 year loan for RV?

A high end RV should last over 20 years if cared for. My 2000 alpenlite reached that mile stone and is still in great condition. I thought of purchasing a super c above 200k and would be ok with loan of around 150 for 20years.I haven't pulled the trigger as I'm not sure I could use it enough. However it might be time to look again as I believe were entering a buyers market. Like with anything don't live above your means.

RE: Impact of Coronavirus on Parks?

I think if you had your trip planned during hurricane season you might have more to worry about parks being closed.

RE: How do you get to your spare tire with the camper on?

You can use the rods that came with the truck and a twelve inch crescent wrench clears my camper. I also carry a 20 ton bottle jack as I'm not sure I would like to use the stock jack without the camper. The fun part is dragging the heavy tire from under the truck. I try to drop it on a tarp and than drag the hold thing out.

RE: We were shocked to learn our newly purchased TT

There's several kits available to make a gas water heater work on electric. The element fits in the drain plug.Then you can use either gas or electric.

RE: Backup Camera Setup with AND without a Slide-in Camper

check out rv cams,thats where I bought my system. I first bought one camera and mounted it below the bumper. Since my monitor had two channels I bought a second camera and mounted above the camper door. Been very happy with the system, and I sometimes tow a twelve cargo trailer with is near impossible to see with just the mirrors.

RE: Planning a trip Yellowstone, Mt Rushmore, Deadwood Etc.

Sturgis will be larger this year as it's the 80th year. I waited to long to make my reservation so unless a cancellation comes it will be another year for me. If I didn't ride I would avoid that time of the year....

RE: front cap fading and peelinag

I had a wrap placed on mine as after twenty years buffing and polish just wasn't cutting any more. The cost on mine, which is a TC was about seven hundred.

RE: When does a Pickup become a " Historical Vehicle"?

In Florida it's the type of insurance you carry which restricts how much you can drive the vehicle, not your antique plate. There is a horseless carry plate available to certain vehicles which may restrict driving.

RE: Which RV is right for you QUIZ

Mine came back as a TC which is what I've had for 16 years, not what I've been considering a super C. Maybe worth listening too and keeping the money...

RE: New truck batteries

I have a pair of Duracells in my duramax since 2015 so far so good, also have a pair of six volt Duracells in the TC that are also doing well. Hope I haven't jinx myself.

RE: Tires question

I had used BFG tires on most of my vehicles, but have had separation problems as of late. My last set of BFG TA commercials had only 23k miles before having problems. Two fronts started to separate at the worst time Saturday night going through Atlanta had to replace with pair of Westlake all I could find on a sunday. The rears didn't last much longer which I replaced with good year wrangers. The BFG were 3.5 years old at the time of problems. The truck is also stored inside unless traveling.

RE: Class C vs Class A - Length

I would think a super c would be closer to a class A.

RE: Winegard mission

You have to change the switch type from swm to multi-switch before you can select 18" round antenna at least I do with mine. I think if you hit exit/ menu that should bring up the page wear you can select repeat satellite setup. Then select multi-switch and then 18" round. hope this helps.

RE: Really Disappointing (T/C Weight)

In florida you can buy your plate for the weight of the truck plus what you want to carry. Before I had the TC I registered it for about 1000 lbs over the weight of the truck once I started hauling the TC I increased it to the max rated weight which increased the cost about 55.00.

RE: stopping point/overnight camp between Ohio & Fort Wilderness

I make that trip every august just from the other direction. There are two state parks just off I75 red top mountain north of Atlanta and high falls south of Atlanta. However if I'm only looking for a few hours and the temps aren't to bad I'll use a flying J.

RE: BFG tire disintegration

I also had bad set of BFG, however mine were commercial TA.My front tires separated while on a trip at the worse time.Saturday night while driving through Atlanta. These tires were just under four years with 23000 miles.The tread wear was not good and I figured I would be lucky to get 30000 out of them.Since it was a Sunday when I needed to find tires, the only ones available were Westlake. Never heard of them, but can't be much worse then the BFG and the price was a lot less. Also this truck spends it life in a garage unless camping and air pressure is monitor with a tpms system.

RE: Duramax class action suit

Its not the car companies its the government that requires removal of certain additives. They did the same several years back when they removed/lowered the zinc in motor oils and cam shafts were being wiped out mostly in older vehicle.
