RE: TC Horizontal LP Cylinders

I have never been hassled about my 2003 horizontal tanks by a propane dealer. Granted I keep the tanks clean, and paint over any scratches. They look relatively new which I suspect is why they never check. Ditto. I had one guy at a U-Haul refuse to fill my tank. He had never encountered one. I don't go there anymore.

No worries, 2112.

RE: Winter tire recommendations

I used Brigestone Blizzak on my Toyota Tundra for YEARS in Fairbanks, AK. They are the cat's patootie. Highly recommended.

RE: Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

What's your charge current requirement? Are they lithium batteries with internal battery management system? The factory charger has an output of 48VDC, 650W maximum, 13.5A maximum. I don't know exactly what the battery will draw.....yet. And yes, it is a LiFePO4 battery with a built-in BMS.

RE: Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

I like the idea of that voltage converter. I could use it to charge the bike battery directly with 12VDC input and 45VDC output. On a sunny day, I could even, theoretically, charge directly from the solar panels. Believe me, I know that going from DC -> Inverter -> AC charger -> DC battery charging is inefficient. I am looking for better options but the last thing I want to do is damage that $800-1000 bike battery....or myself. 2112, thanks for the idea.

RE: Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

I need to charge an electric dirt bike. Its charger is AC only and I will pay the extra for a pure sine wave inverter. I had a MSW inverter for my microwave and it really did not like the MSW. My CPAP runs from 12VDC. Thanks all.Why not just boost the DC with something like THIS? There is a lot of loss converting DC to AC then back to DC That's an interesting product. Thanks, I'll look into it.

Pure sine wave inverter suggestions?

I'd like suggestions for a 1000W pure sine wave inverter.

RE: Firestone Ride-Rite Airspring Defective Design Bent Brackets

I've had Air Lift brackets and airbags on my Tundras since 2004. They have worked flawlessly without any issues with the bracketry nor has there been any limits to travel. Perhaps I've just been lucky and perhaps the brackets for Tundras are better designed that those for other trucks.

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

Are you guys using an air compressor to blow out the lines? What about oil in the air?

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

Thanks for all the input. Now, I'm concerned about the fresh water tank growing mold. I think a half cup of bleach might be a good idea. Thoughts on that?

RE: Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

Sorry you didn't get to use you camper this year. :( Me too. Thanks.

Leaving potable antifreeze in the system

I haven't used my TC since last fall so now it's been a year since I filled the water system with potable antifreeze. And I have no plans to use the TC until next spring at the earliest....when a Covid-19 vaccine is available. Do I need to change it since it's a year old?

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

Part of the problem with litter is there is no convenient place to dispose it. People dump tires, old mattresses, etc. along seldom traveled roads and other places because municipal dumping places are few and far as well as their charges for dumping are out of reach for many people. In some campgrounds, the "pack it in-pack it out" plan where you are supposed to take all your trash home with you, leaves people without any resource to discard leaky smelly trash they don't want in the passenger seat of their vehicle. Other campgrounds have one central spot for trash disposal, often quite a distance from the campsite. You gotta be kidding me, it sounds like you're advocating dumping your trash instead of dealing with it. That right?

It does work well.

RE: Truck Campers and Boating?

I towed and launched my 18' x 48" Lowe Big Jon boat with my camper on the truck. I used a hitch extension and I had a long tongue on the Calkins trailer. I started with tow mirrors and later installed a wireless backup camera on the camper. I didn't have an issue doing it.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

I struggle with the idea that the OP's TL product is to blame as well. Why? Because I hit a HUGE pothole while going about 70mph on the Alaska Highway near Destruction Bay in the Yukon. I was heavily loaded in the camper and the truck. A rear wheel bearing was cracked from that hit. One thing that was NOT damaged by that HUGE pothole (when my truck and camper went up in the air a bit and came down hard) was my TL tiedowns. I don't have Fastguns just standard turnbuckles, chains, and the spring-loaded eyelets on the tiedowns. My 2 cents.

RE: Using a c-pap in a TC Inverter numbers W/Humidifier.

I use a Philips Respironics Respironics DreamStation CPAP machine which has a heated humidifier and tube that I can shut off. My CPAP can run off of 12VDC and that's what I use in the TC or RPod. When I'm traveling in my TC or in my small RPod trailer, I shut off the heated humidifier and tube and use it in "cold passover humidification" mode. That saves a lot of power. And doing so works ok for me. There are cold passover humidifier devices available as well. https://www.cpapwholesale.com/info/passover-or-heated-humidifier https://www.cpap.com/cpap-faq/Passover-CPAP-Humidifier

RE: How do you store bikes inside your Truck Camper?

I use one of these for my bike inside the camper when I'm solo: https://www.amazon.com/Bikehand-Floor-Parking-Storage-Bicycle/dp/B07D64KTRH Otherwise, I have a Thule Swing-Away receiver hitch bike rack that works very well for multiple bikes.

RE: Is a Gas 3/4 Truck and Pop-up Camper Safe in Colorado?

Yup. Safe in Colorado, Wyoming, Idaho, Montana, Washington, Oregon, and Alaska as well as BC, Alberta, and the Yukon. ....all of which I've traveled with my Toyota Tundra and Outfitter Apex 8.
