RE: Just back from two weeks in AK

Safety glasses? It's that bad? Oh my. :E I'll have to check it out next time in the neighborhood. I'll bring some glasses. :C They are for flying hooks and lures when someone looses a fish. They fly hard and 100's get hooks in the face/head. The ER in Soldotna has a doll with all of the hooks removed each summer in the place it was removed from. https://i.imgur.com/fOIYbGpl.jpg

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

I live about 15 miles outside of Anchorage, last week our mornings were 56-58 degrees, today 36 degrees, it's changing quickly. As for the fires, Southcentral AK is buried in smoke today due to strong winds over the weekend that spread two massive fires. On the Sterling Highway the north winds blew the fire across the highway towards Skilak Loop Road and closed a 20 mile section. A pilot car will lead cars through as the situation allows. Cooper Landing is prepared to evacuate. On the Parks Highway the wind blew a tree onto the power lines by the highway and lit the forest. Many houses and some businesses are destroyed. A 30 mile stretch between Trapper Creek and Willow was closed and reopens with a pilot car (50 cars with a 1 hour trip each way) as the fire/smoke allows safe passage. Extremely Smoky down here!

RE: New Moderator

Congratulations Bedlam, I'm sure you'll do the forum good. I'm a lead moderator on a ATV forum and know the ups and downs of moderating, there is a whole lot more to it than many realize. I wish you all the best!!!

RE: Timbren vs. Sumo Springs

I added the heavy duty Timbrens after the first year with my camper to help when pulling my trailer. No weird proposing, sway, or maintenance with them like some have with air bags.

RE: GM pickup tailgate opening too narrow

It was in 2008 that the tailgates narrowed on GM trucks, I couldn't fit a Northern Lite that was on a 2001 Chev without raising it almost 4". No problem with a traditional camper shape or extra width above the wheel wells like an Arctic Fox.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

1/2 of day from Anchorage, but settle on forest campground. Any recommendation for campground in Anchorage? Google is not showing much of good choices. How can you stay away from Tok? That is the only route you can drive and actually roads in the area are way better, than those closer to the border. Kayteg, just before Anchorage is the Eagle River campground, take the Eagle River Loop/Hiland Road exit (3rd Eagle River exit after you cross the river and climb back uphill), cross back over the highway and take an immediate left on VFW Road, the campground access road will be on your right. Its a Chugach National Forrest campground without hookups but right on the river, beautiful. Eagle River is about 10 miles from downtown Anchorage and has a Safeway grocery There are 3 dump stations in Eagle River too (Chevron, Tesoro, & Fred Meyer gas stations). The three "camp grounds" in Anchorage are all kind of sketchy. South of Anchorage about 15 Miles is Bird Creek campground, also no hookups but located on the Turnagain Arm of the Cook Inlet. One gas station right across the highway.

RE: Roll Call Alaska 2019

Slowly rolling that way, will need to spend an extra day in Calgary as the fridge stopped working, and send to bed unrelated to the right side electric not working. How's the heat? Heard it's nicer here for a change. The heat is finally gone as of today in southcentral AK, 20 degree drop from two days ago. 62 degrees right now in Eagle River (5:30pm) with 5 more hours of daylight left today.

RE: Drip Rail/Rain Gutter On Front Nose of Cabover

Finished cleaning the exterior up and then finally getting my gutters installed on the front nose and above/below the slider behind the cab. https://i.imgur.com/K78igkcl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/uCeDRrbl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/kJaxclkl.jpg

RE: Drip Rail/Rain Gutter On Front Nose of Cabover

Here's the thread. Thank you, that was the thread about the leaking front slider. I also remember seeing a photo of a drip rail on the front nose of the cabover like this. https://i.imgur.com/eDgPdHNl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/eDgPdHNl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/YFaRUGDl.jpg]https://i.imgur.com/YFaRUGDl.jpg

Drip Rail/Rain Gutter On Front Nose of Cabover

I remember seeing someone on here that installed a drip rail/rain gutter on the front nose of their cabover, but I cannot find the post in numerous searches? I just purchased 25' of flexible RV rain gutter with 3M automotive adhesive on the back to make a drip rail to help keep my trucks windshield cleaner (chalky crud on the windshield) and also a piece over the sliding window between the cab/camper to help keep rain out while driving. If anyone has done this modification or can find the post I'd really appreciate any tips. RV Drip Rail

RE: USAA Insurance

I'm a long time USAA member and have never had an issue with coverage, claims, or cost. It really depends on your driving record, claim history, number of vehicles covered and types of vehicles. And like stated earlier, getting a human within a few seconds who can actually help is worth $100's to me!

RE: Front tire pressure?

I could really tell the front end had a significant effect on the side to side rocking when I had Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks on all four corners of our srw trucks. I experimented quite a bit with different setting and I found that without the camper I needed run the front socks on nearly the softest setting and with the camper I needed run the front shocks on nearly the stiffest setting. The front shocks had almost as much (maybe 70% - 80%) effect as the rear shocks on reducing side to side rocking. bradw Thank you for the additional information, I may play with my front pressure.

RE: Batteries

My campers battery compartment would not fit two group 27 batteries (like 1/4" short), and two group 24's have a low amp hour capability, so I went with two 6 volt batteries that just fit height wise and had room to spare sideways. 95% of my camping is remote Alaska dry camping so I needed battery AH capacity to last long enough for long weekends. Dual 6 volts give superior amp hour capacity and allow me to go up to a week dry camping. I've never had to add water in over 5 seasons of use either, they are great.

RE: Front tire pressure?

When we hauled our Lance on our SRW trucks, I had less sway when we ran the front tires at 80 psi. Tires are part of the suspension and when the rear rocks side to side, the front does also. So anything you do to stiffen the front suspension helps, even though 90% of the added load is on the rear tires. I honestly never thought about the front tire pressure and sway before due to almost all of the weight is added to the rear. Hmmm

RE: Time for new batteries.

Be sure to check out BATTERIES PLUS. They also have good deals on GC2 Golf Cart 6V Batteries I picked up 4EA DURACELL 6V GC2 part number SLIGC110 215AH capacity for $84.99 each last year... 12 Month free replacement... They took my old 12V Interstate batteries for CORE fee... My four batteries gives me 430AHs capacity... https://i.imgur.com/38649pO.jpg height=300 Google image Roy Ken https://i.imgur.com/SoQ6BfGm.jpg height=45 I've been running the same batteries for the past 6 seasons. I've never had to add water and can go for a week here in Alaska without recharging.

RE: TPMS ?

Funny this thread came up, I'm always watching mine and always wondered what others see. My camper is 3,200 loaded on my SRW 2500 Sierra, my tires normally climb from 80 to the upper 80's or low 90's. Making a cold reading can really be odd to, when the temp drop to the 30's my tires are less than 80 psi cold, when in the 50's-60's in the morning they are around 80. You can also see a few pounds difference in the tire facing the sun in the afternoon.

RE: Rear of camper sagging

Morsnow, you truck maybe has the crowned floor of the bed problem. If you measure the flatness of the bed, front to back, with an 8’ straight edge you will see the problem. I cut a piece of 1/2” thick rubber stall mat and placed it in the rear of the bed and eliminated the problem. It does have the crown, I discovered that soon after buying my camper. I have two rubber truck mud flaps under the rear half of the bed with the full length rubber bed mat on top of them to offset the crown. The camper now sits level, the cab of my truck does have a noticeable slope which is normal.
