RE: Really cool but lost on me.

I think these new rigs are really cool and I know the next generation of TCer is all about getting away and boondocking and I'm all in...With that said they all look about as comfortable as sitting on a five gallon bucket turned over. Just having some fun... What do you think? Agreed!!! They don't even look like a nice spot to relax and enjoy the scenery, more like an inner city condo.

RE: Anyone know the payload range of a 1994 GMC?

Just over 2,000 lbs, those older truck just didn't have the payloads of todays trucks.

RE: Carrying a Small Motorcycle?

Where can I get a 48” extension that plugs into my existing 2” hitch receiver on the truck and will accept a 2” product on the far end? Commercially available 2" extensions stop at 18", you'll need a 2-1/2" or 3" to go 48" out.

RE: Torklift camper tie down width question

Triangulate as much as possible to prevent camper movement. Straight up and down allows the camper to move around as nothing is preventing side/side and front/back movement other than down force.

RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

I was going to use some dicor non-sag lap sealant. Any issues with it actually sagging too much? Why that? Because I have an open tube of it already. That will work perfect!

RE: Evaporative Coolers for Lance

I had a Coleman Mach 8 Polar Cub installed where the standard roof vent was. Unless your roof is so full of other things there should be room to install a rooftop unit.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

I was in a local Harbor Freight Saturday. I was looking over the generators when a very friendly clerk asked if he could help me. I asked what they stocked for parts for the Predator generator. He got a little smirk on his face and asked what I was looking for. I asked if he had any parts for the rewind starter. No. Carburetor kit? No. Air filter? No. Spark plug? The auto parts store up the street has them ! He then went on to tell me that he, personally, owned a Predator for 3 years and had no problems with it. Again, I know the Honda is a lot more money, but I would be willing to bet that the Honda dealer up the street would have all those parts on the shelf. What is a ruined camping trip worth ? Exactly why I switched from an off-brand to my current Honda 2200, parts and service. Yamaha also provides parts and service for theirs.

RE: Ram 3500 truck bed

Your camper should only rest on the bottom 4'x8' area, the sides should not rest on anything.

RE: Truck bed camper shim

I have the short bed I guess I can find mud flaps and slide them under the mat front and back. I did notice a pretty good rock backwards when stopping, but the truck was real low on the back and I thought that was the cause. If the gap is in the back, just place the flaps in the back to compensate for the crown. That's what I did. Just placed the rubber mud flaps under the rear portion and under the full bed rubber mat.

RE: Stable Camper anti-rocking system

Thanks MORSNOW. Not sure what you mean about the storage area you mention. (front fender) There is a bunch of space in front of the wheel wells (between camper and truck bed) that I have access to thru two doors on either side of the camper. You can see one of the doors in the pic above (plywood rectangle in the diamond plate). Anyone can store things here before and after loading their campers if no access doors. Sorry, back on subject with Stable Camper

RE: Stable Camper anti-rocking system

…. We have 6 RV stackable screw jacks ( Amazon ) & 3 - 2” X 4” boards; 1 board across front , middle & back… NO movement & camper is supported from the bottom, not the sides. Low cost effective solution!…If’s interested PM & I’ll send pictures. I use 4 of those same screw jacks with 4x4's when parked at our house, they are the most cost effective solution! They are also very easy to transport in the front fender area for use out camping.

RE: Truck bed camper shim

GM truck boxes are not flat, they have a peak across the bed by the wheel wells to allow water to drain from the front and rear of the box. Campers will rock on this peak unless a shim is placed in the rear. I used two semi truck mud flaps under my rubber mat to make a level surface. Use a straight edge, like a 4' level and slide it on the floor of the box from front/rear and you will see the peak.

RE: Reico-Titan electric jack dust boots

You have to raise the leg up in the air, the bolt comes up from the bottom. The little hole you are talking about is a leg drain and is located above the pad in the leg, that is not it.

RE: Reico-Titan electric jack dust boots

I replaced mine about a month ago. There is a bolt going up from the bottom side of the base pad that needs to be removed to allow you to slide the new rubber seal up the leg. I cleaned a few years worth of "gunk" out of the rear two legs before re-installing the base pads.

RE: Opinions on lightweight portable inverter/generators

Personal opinion but I try to purchase reliability. And I’d spend $600 for a used Honda before $500 on an off brand. Although used ones might be less plentiful this year again... I’ve beat the tar out of probably hundreds of Honda generators, commercially. In my experience they last 1000s of hours in less than ideal conditions. And retain their value. Something to consider. That, and my one experience with the Costco Yamaha knockoff 2k, one of my employees bought one to run his camper and it wouldn’t even come close to running his AC, but an old Honda and a newer Yamaha 2k would. He returned it twice so tried 3 separate units and none would put out the power that the real name brand ones do. The other brands may be better though? I had the same experience with the Costco Yamaha knockoff and sold it for a genuine Honda 2200. The Honda runs my A/C without an issue and will hopefully outlast me.

RE: Need Advice

You found out what many have said on here thousands of times, those factory weight labels are not even close to accurate for an actual built weight (1,280 lbs right?). It's probably closer to 1,800 lbs before you added anything inside. Your 150 series truck tires are probably WAY overloaded too. A 250 is really needed.

RE: Compensating for GM crowned bed So I cut my mud flaps back to 15" and added a 3/16" board in front of the thick portion of it to form a wedge of sorts. So I got the 7/16" thick at the back for 8" then its 1/4" thick out to the 15". Thanks for all the replies... Looks good, keep us updated. Thanks

RE: new Ford 7.3 gas with 3.55 axle ratio, does it work?

Y'all will all have them 1-ton electric trucks before long.....problem solved. :) Nice, and just think we can charge them back up with solar!! 3 tons You'll be parked for 8-10 hours at a recharge station every 200 miles, solar would take days....

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Last week I de-winterized the water system than bleach soak, rinsed, drained and refilled. Now we are cleaning everything up and getting ready to head out tomorrow morning for a 3 day trip to the hot springs and fossil beds near Hagerman ID.
