RE: Age old question....but??

Don't use Z brackets as they are difficult to remove when needed. Use alimunium angle, cut 2 pieces and bolt them together for your Z bracket. That is what I did using 1/4 inch stainless steel bolts to the panels and between the angles. LeRoy

RE: Quiet boondocking Moab + South Grand Canyon late march

As Busskipper said, check out the thread on Moab here. About 2/3rds of the way down the first page is a segment on boondocking locations. Besides the Jeep Safari in April, be aware that many of the school dist... Thanks 4 Runner Guy, that is terrific information. I have bookmarked this thread. LeRoy

RE: LifePO4 video

..... Man Oh Man ... look at all those little batteries and all those inter-connections that have to be made, and stay made, year after year ... or else. ... (In addition, there is a fairly "complex" BMS system required to take care of all those little cells!) When an RV'er is out and about on the far side of beyond, reliability of the RV systems becomes ultra important ... I believe that most production electric cars use this type of battery configuration (approximately 1.3 v multi cell batteries with a BMS) so this technology has been in common use for several years now.

RE: Stabil or Seafoam for long term gas can storage?

... This forum, or group of forums, is so valuable. You'd think that those of us who benefit from the advice (and who occasionally offer our own thoughts) would all want to promote usage, rather than discouraging questions and comments. I get very valuable information and enjoy the discussions and comments. The problem I have with the "search" feature is that occasionally I can't think of the proper phrase or key word to use in the search box. Then I finally ask the question again but most people just jump in and give advice and even reference past posts which cover my question. LeRoy

RE: electrical calculation please

Think of it as the equivalent of running a 30 W electric lightbulb 24 hours a day. That will be a close approximation. LeRoy

RE: Not A Joke Top Off With Gasoline or Diesel

FWIW, I just checked at 2 PM and the price of diesel and gas has not changed since earlier last week in NE Wisconsin. No arguing just stating my observations. LeRoy

RE: Midnight Sun Festival - Fairbanks

We stayed there (in the parking lot campground) in September 2016. Interesting place. I just remember all the buses parked at the end of the lot, and there was something food related going on, but memory fails me as to what it was? The buses were possibly from the local hotels and campgrounds that were being people to the Salmon Bake. The Salmon Bake is a very popular. I been to the bake on four occasions and seen the buses unload but not to worry the passengers already have food tickets and it is only a momentary slow down of the food lines because the Salmon Bake staff keeps the food coming. I would describe the Salmon Bake as a self service buffet that has separate salad bars, drink bars, hot food grill area, and a desert building. It has indoor and outdoor seating. I found this on the web: Alaska Salmon Bake Seafood in Fairbanks Hungry souls should take in the touristy, tasty, tongue-in-cheek salmon bake at Pioneer Park, which serves all-you-can-eat grilled salmon, halibut, cod, prime rib and countless sides. A $6 shuttle bus is available from major hotels. LeRoy

RE: Midnight Sun Festival - Fairbanks

And if you are going to Chicken, go across the road (Taylor Highway) to Eagle, Alaska. It is directly on the Yukon River. It has many great boom town historical buildings that are open to the public: Fort Egbert, Wickersham's Courthouse, Eagle City Hall, and the Customs Building Museum just to name a few. Also while in Fairbanks check out Pioneer Park: its relocated log homes and museums, and enjoy a wonderful meal at the "Salmon Bake" while you are there. LeRoy

RE: Fairbanks-June or August/Sept

I would go later in the year, in June the bugs are brutal. The black flies have landing lights and take on two drums of fuel. Bugs will not keep me away. In reality they aren't any worse than Maine, MA or NH. X2 Or northern Wisconsin, Michigan or Minnesota. I have been there twice. I am going back again. This time July, August, and September. First two times were June thru August. I wouldn't want to be on the Dalton Highway (State Road 11, aka The Haul Road) after August 15th because of the great possibility of ice and snow. There are some very sharp curves and steep grades. The Richardson Highway, SR4, at Thompson Pass about 35 miles east of Valdez has some sharp curves and steep grades with the possibility of ice and snow during August and September. Just check the weather reports and road conditions. The other roads should be fine. Depending on your return route of travel, you will have to be cautious of the mountainous areas of Canada. Have FUN. All the rest of us have. Safe Travels, LeRoy

RE: Arizona ORV permit

This may be of help to clarify: That is AZ's standard brochure that was published awhile back. I went to the Arizona State Official Webpage and didn't see anything about this requirement so that is why I posted the question. I am older. I might be blind in one eye and can't see out of the other (just kidding of coarse) so that is why I am asking for clarification. LeRoy

tuna fisher, Where did you find this information? I have an AZ OHV permit and a highway use plate for my ATV so I am curious about the change in the law. Thank you, LeRoy

RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

I now own a Northern Lite , at one time I owned a Real Lite had a side door and jack knife couch, and it was a four season camper it had copper shut off valves to cut the water off to the outside shower. Surprised that Northern Lite and Bigfoot neither one has a valve to cut water off to the outside shower, when it is below freezing I would think the valves on the hot and cold water side might freeze? I agree with you completely. This in my opinion is a very valid complaint about a four season camper. The thin piece of plastic that the outside shower valves are mounted thru provide very little to no freeze protection. I talked to Keith Donkin, general manager of Northern Lite, about this. I disconnected and capped off the outside shower hot and cold lines near the water pump. I never use the outside shower anyways. LeRoy

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

Posted: 08/31/19 06:37pm Link | Quote | Print | Notify Moderator Something doesnt sound right with this post?? Northern Lite giving less then above and beyound customer service just has not been my experience. You just bought it and you have had to call Northern Lite 3 times already? Never ending story of annoying problems?? What other problems have you had? What was the outcome once you recieved your pigtail tester? You do know that the PDI paperwork in the folder you mentioned is the Sole resposibilty of the Dealer to fill out, not sure why you would not hold dealer 100% responsible for that. Why didn't the dealer check your lights before you left the lot? Trying to get Northern Lite to diagnois your back up light problem over the phone would be futile, there are just way to many varibles for that to be productive. X 2..... Why setting hair on fire blaming NL??....Very doubtful camper wired wrong....very doubtful truck wired wrong.....very suspect pigtail is wired wrong!!... So simple to follow Bargman diagrams posted on here to pull pigtail ends apart and check wiring. Buy a tester and multimeter and use it!!.... going to be a long life if all you do is yell and can't trouble shoot things yourself.... X3.... Doesn't take much to check your electrical with test light etc. Surprised you left the dealer's lot with partial lights working. Being a retired Peace Officer and all! X4... Did you, devildog1971, ever contact Northern Lite about this problem? It is not fair to blast a Company or Product without first asking the Factory for help. So again, Did you contact Keith Donkin so that he can help you and correct a dealer problem if one exists? LeRoy

RE: Long Distance 5th wheel

I have This: Clicky. I really are very satisified with it. I also bought This installation kit. I bought it in 2007 and installed it in my 2005 Chevy. I moved it to my 2015 Chevy when I traded trucks. I read before buying it that you will NEVER recover the cost of the tank in fuel savings and I definitely can verify that statement but the convenience of being able to travel 1000+ miles before even thinking about finding a fuel station Is why I bought it.

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

They are both male connectors, Well yes and no. Take a close look at the 7-pin jack on the NL camper and a close look at the 7-pin jack on your truck. Mine look different. Both ends of my truck-2-Northernlight umbilical cord look different as well. I ended up LABELING mine as once I plugged it in BACKWARDS and it did not work. There is clearly a TRUCK end and a CAMPER end of the cable. At least on mine there is. - Mark0.Interesting. Both connectors on the 7-pin umbilical cable we use for our '19 NL 8-11 are female and electrically and physically identical to each other. Doesn't matter which end of the cable is plugged into the male connectors on the camper or truck---works fine either way. X2 Same on mine. LeRoy
