RE: Where do you put your levels?

Just installed a LevelMate it calibrated and installed the app. It is by far the greatest and easy to use in combo with the Anderson style level blocks. I think it is worth it....simple to use

Ants and similar pests in any RV.

I can't stress enough that keeping your floors clean of any kind of food matter is imperative. My mother came from Arizona to my place here in the NW. We have seen all time record breaking temps here but the pests are not phased. We have her parked in my RV spot on the side of my house. Long story long...she created an ant explosion in the RV. Why? Her dog. Not just a few ants but she had to bail out. In one day they were everywhere. She is a newbie, and fresh on the road not knowing to take precautions and never thought this kind of thing would happen. I went to work trying to not only find where the intrusion was coming from...but I knew there had to be a source of available food that the pests are attracted to. Three major mistakes here...feeding the dog inside the RV #1. After looking closer, I found little pieces of dog food had made its way to the floor and wall perimeter #2. Last but not least, she had the dogs dry food under the table but did not close the bag. I found it, there was the main source! Ants started coming out of the dog food bag....I sealed it as quick as I could...LOL! I hope this might be a lesson. I figure 3 to 4 days of ant traps...carting the poison bait back to the source. I will not spray anything in a close quarter living space let alone concerned about the dog... there you have it! Any similar experience?

RE: Camper type wood burning stove for home...

NO! and WhY?... A camper is not a tent, It is not a lean just sounds like a really bad idea. Tiny house maybe but finding wood to burn and causing a forest fire....or having to haul wood to burn....not efficient. LPG is the way, heat, fire ring, cooking, running the jenny....come om man!!

RE: What do you guys use for communication in your truck camper?

Just wait for it....SpaceX has been putting hundreds of communication satellites in orbit to create a globle network that will be unobstructed. It will be a game changer in communication.

RE: What do you guys use for communication in your truck camper?

The Spot? No mention but look at it.It is highly recommended for climbers and hikers here in the NW on our mountains..cell is to unreliable.

RE: Happijac lubrication

My fix? They need to dip the outer tube and coat that tube with a layer of galvanization and the foot to. Do yo know that they put 4 small plastic discs at the bottom of the tube? I know that this can scrape off the paint from the leg and bind it up when a lot of pressure is leaning to one side...another fail.

RE: Happijac lubrication

It has got to be really rusted up....that square plate has to slide out from the head. Just keep working it!

RE: Happijac lubrication

Keep on it, don't give up you will get it apart. Once you do you will be happy you did. If you got the gears off the top, it will come apart. If you can't get the upper gear off, use some sand paper to take the burrs off the shaft. Mine got stuck first try but I finally got it apart. Sounds like you have a lot of junk inside the tube. Can you imagine how hard the motor is working to get the leg down?Good luck and repost what you find.

RE: Firestone Ride-Rite Airspring Defective Design Bent Brackets

I found out immediately that the brackets were incorrect with my truck. It was obvious, immediately changes would have to be made. I get it installed after major changes and have the mechanical skills to make it right..but not everyone can do that. Airbags are not just a bolt on a go...not when I did mine. Maybe your lucky today, but this is a big prepared. There is a lot to it in the older 2nd Gen but it is well worth it in my situation. lots of pics just ask. I also have the onboard controller and compressor...this changes everything.

RE: Putting camper on gravel

OMG!! just was going to throw out the critter warning..ants are hard to get rid of if you park it on gravel. Spray all around your tires and jacks with ant killer... they will invade your RV within a day. It is a fact that if they get inside they will build nests and you got a huge problem. I let mine sit with a series of bait traps..It was hard to see them work but I knew the poison was going back to the farm Sure enough...within 3 days...nothing. every critter is going to find a way....even us. So if your parking or storing for prepared. Nature will find you and will take full advantage of you not knowing what to do me.

RE: New Truck or New Engine

Breakdowns and fails can happen at anytime regardless if a truck is brand new or of older age. It seems to be the luck of the draw. I have had many issues with my second gen Dodge, but the money it costs for a new truck way outweighs the cost of replacing parts that go bad. Luckily I have a manual transmission, which in my opinion is way more reliable than an auto in a dually truck. I bought this truck with 5k miles on it...long story will always have repairs, it is a machine and how it gets used depends on how much your maintenance will be. If it is paid for...well that is your choice if you want to sell it and go back into debt....unless you got loads of money to invest and you can take the depreciation....go for it.

RE: What the ??

I have had 3 trucks and 4 campers..I finally made it to a dually(horse before the carriage) another subject but I can haul or pull anything now(I have every option). A TC is so awesome for it allows you to go anywhere...but the cost is pricey for how small they are. I know, sticker shock. It really boils down to how you want to Glamp. A truck first is utility versatility and I would personally not have any use for an RV that sits as a one piece (A,B or C) TT maybe, but overall, it is the demand for the convenience..again you can go anywhere and are not limited to campgrounds or RV parks. It is the demand for a product that governs the price...obviously truck campers are just that, in demand...That is why we have one, everyone wants one that has a truck and boondocks. That is why we are here to talk about it. It also depends on how much you use it...break down the cost of a trip with airfare, motel stays, car rentals, food etc. and now with covid...who wants to do that? Not me.

RE: New Truck or New Engine

I will chime in and make this quick. My 2nd Gen Dodge Dually diesel melted down #6 piston at 53k miles because of using after market oil filters.(clogged the oil nozzle at the end of the oil galley) If you ever rebuild...never use anything but the Fleetguard filters. I got lucky. I was able to do a full on rebuild top to bottom for under 4000, I do all my work. Depending on your situation, look at the price of new trucks. A rebuild is way more an option these days as long as you want to go through the process. Doing an engine is a major project but so is a clutch If you have a manual. Don't chump out. If you have it change it out...regardless. Breaking it apart again is not what you want to do a year later.

Does anyone use an aftermarket Tire pressure system?

I am in the market for this insurance..and since my last trip to Texas had me with not one, but two tire failures, I figure for safety concerns, it's time to bite the bullet. I'm really not wanting a brand war as to keep it a clean post but as to... do you have one, do you like what you have, does it do the job and is it worth it??

RE: Dodge 1999 3500 Lamarie dually

OH no the mirror option is horrible...power heated trailer mirrors are a must in my book....and it is not 4x4?...MM, it's your call but I would not even consider owning this rig...just my opinion.
