RE: Camper jack torn off driving

If your in business you should have a bottle jack or a floor jack some pipe, or 4x4, is all you need. Just be careful then shore it up safely enough to do repair.

RE: Any thoughts on a repair?

Sorry for your misfortune, as said, doable, even if you have to build a temp. tent, to get it out of the weather. This is not a couple of wknds. worth of work. You can search all kind of fixes/repairs here, most better than factory. Time,lots of time. Don't let it overwhelm you. Was this a dealer ? (if so I drive it through his front window) or not I'd ask a lawyer if you have any recourse. No way they can say "they weren't aware " of the problem. Good luck !

RE: Turnbuckle ?

To remove TL's I only need to pull handle up, and wiggle/jiggle the hook out of the top TC tie down then the bottom hook from truck tie-down, no turning involved. As I said 9 out of ten times just hook bottom first then top. If a adjustment is needed it's usually 1-3 turns taking seconds.

RE: Turnbuckle ?

If I understand your analysis, no, quite the opposite, once you find your happy (tension) place, you then slide the o-ring to 1/4" below the housing, this will help you monitor how your positioned ,as opposed to how you were when you departed. It's real simple to hook the bottom in the tie-down & twist them. On my last trip a walk-by visual made me aware that TC shifted a bit, because one front o-ring was down 1/2". Couldn't tell by doing a front or back visual but a measurement confirmed it. We were traveling the hills and dales of routes 40 and 50 through OH., WV.,MD.,VA.,and the coast. Lots of 10-15 mph switchbacks so I was watching them pretty closely. Harder to keep an eye on stuff like that with the chains. 50, The Loneliest Road & 40, America's Main Street are just as beautiful as the Blue Ridge up in the mountains. Inspired me enough to plan a trip on my motorcycle this fall, if this Covid s_ _ t ever goes away, if not we'll carry our hotel. Hope this helps.

RE: Newbie

The handle can let water in alone, then pull or push it some more in the same direction to open valve. IF your black and grey tanks are empty just pull the blacks open, you might have residual liquid so be careful, put a 5 gal. bucket under it. White valves are probably low drain points for fresh water tank and or hot water tank. There all different but the same, experiment. Have you tried contacting a Adventure dealer, or manufacturer.

RE: Turnbuckle ?

Once you set them, and set the o-ring, 9 outta 10 times there good to go for me. You mark them for position on truck, RF, RR, LF, LR. I remove my LF for easier fuel door access. Bigger door with DEF. I also put a few scratches in my old truck with the wrenches, fortunately it was silver so only I saw them.

RE: More Upper SL ?’s

I don't get flashed as much for hi beams. I didn't put to many miles on without them so hard to tell, but, I feel like I have more control when cornering.

RE: Dropping Camper at KOA campground?

I know we're a different animal, but I've never read in a brochure or camp ground rules that unloading isn't allowed.

RE: Northern Lite 10-2 maiden voyage

Congratulations ,enjoy. May I suggest that you make getting a exact measurement on your height a priority, my 10-2 is 11'-10" on a SRW F 350. My propane use dry is about the same. Industry standard is to fill tank 80%. Have good times with your new rigs.

Hi guys, on a recent trip I had my jack wireless remote stop working, and green light stayed on the remote.Luck was on my side only had a couple inches to retractmanually. Manual says, " Receiver needs reset", "insufficient power at receiver to operate jacks,(Red light on receiver panel)". I can't see where there is or would be a light, or a reset. Had to remove battery from remote to shut it off. Next day all was well. Can't get through to Lippert (new owner),leaving messages, waiting. I can't find a model or part # on jack,remote, receiver, or in manual, (3 pieces of loose paper) lol. TC is a 13' Northern Lite 10-2 cdse, does anyone have same and know the HJ's model #.... Also searching for the MALE socket for a drill, 6 sided 1/2", all my searches are to no avail, where did you get your socket. Thanks, K Mac.

RE: Northern lite blind

I think my spots are from the sun, I only have them on the side that faces the sun at my house. Funny it's only on the outside. Better them than the wood imho.

RE: Palomino 2012 Maverick

The 2nd picture shows 3 jacks really out of plumb, but, I think the camera is to blame, as said unfortunately, alot of stuff will probably be up for sale after this mess were dealing with, I'd wait and shop around. Good luck with your search.

RE: New Member with Used Camper

Next time you dewinterize Make sure you have water in hot water tank BEFORE firing it up, and welcome. , if it"s a metal tank you could cause some harm. Good luck with your new toy
