RE: 2020 Milepost

Released Tomorrow

2020 Milepost

The 2020 Milepost will be released this month (23 March, 2020). I'm pretty sure the roads are all the same but some of the businesses along the way have changed. We are planning a trip from AK to Idaho, I just need my darling navigator wife to learn how to read the Milepost in reverse so we can enjoy the sights and stops along the way.

RE: A clothing packing suggestion for Arctic Fox campers

Just thought I would mention a solution to clothes packing for those of you that have Arctic Fox campers. We use these Zip Loc Totes: Zip Loc Flexible Totes to carry and store our clothes. Two of them, if not overpacked, fit nicely in each side cubby of the camper by the bed. Pack them in the house, carry them out to the camper, unzip and roll up the cover and stuff them in the cubby. Which cubby? The front wardrobe by your head, the long flat one in the middle, or the rear wardrobe at the foot of the bed?

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

Update - for those considering the lower StableLoads, they do now make a stainless version, for the Superduty.  However after speaking with various people about StableLoads…. I spoke with a trusted expert, and he said he had heard of more than one situation that people with campers who were using the lower StableLoads who *broke a spring* when using the lower StableLoads.  He said they can also can sometimes make noise, so he recommended against the lower StableLoads. I have NEVER heard of a broken spring due to a lower Stable Load, dude must be trying to sell you an expensive alternative. I can honestly say I've never heard mine make noise either, I guess when not in use they could possible rattle but I've never heard it.

RE: Anyone with the Ford 6.2 Carrying TC

I just bought a 2020 Ford 4x4, 6.2 gasser, long bed, SRW, 3.73. Put a Northstar 850SC on it. I was not sure what kind of MPG I would get but I am surprised it's so low. Only 1,500 miles on the truck, but looks like MPG with camper is about 11.3 or so. That's great mileage with a gas engine and loaded with your camper. Are you in the flat lands?

RE: Alaska Highway Campgrounds

The most popular camping time for both Americans and Canadians is July 1st and 4th week for Independence Day celebrations, so many campgrounds are full everywhere. The absolute worst place to camp on the 4th is anywhere near Seward AK, as they have the Mountain Marathon that day and it's a huge drunkfest/party.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

My WC850 scaled 3,200lbs fully loaded and ready to camp.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

I have a WC850 on my 2500 GMC, the fully loaded wet weight including all of our camping gear is 3,200lbs. Do you have air bags or any other upgrades to your truck? After using it completely stock a few weekends, I added lower Stable Loads. They are incredible, keep the truck level and prevent side to side sway by including the overload spring into the equation all the time. I also tow a 16' trailer with a SXS on it so I added Timbrens later. The Timbrens are just above the axle most times and just assist when I load up the front of the trailer with a row a gas cans and firewood. No need for airbags with a non-slide camper and I don't want the sway/bounce of bags with all of Alaska's curvy mountain roads. A heavy spring is better for stability, that is why Super Springs, Stable Loads, and Sway Bars are preferred.

RE: 2018 RAM 2500 with Adventurer 910DB

Would a Northwood Wolf Creek 850 work well? Dry weight is right at 2000 lbs. I have a WC850 on my 2500 GMC, the fully loaded wet weight including all of our camping gear is 3,200lbs.

RE: propane tanks

Our local hardware store has been offering $1.00 off a gallon on propane (now $2.15 gal) due to our extreme cold temperatures. Other places quit filling because it is too cold. We have been in the negatives for weeks now (I've seen -20 every day this week on my drive into work and back home)and the deal is, you have to ask for which of the two guys who own the shop have to make the trek across the lot and stand there while filling your tanks. Their supplier has had to refill the bulk tank every day. Good times!

RE: Winter sets in

Currently 40 degrees and rain in the forecast for the next 2 days, single digit temps by the weekend. So in one week we go from 10" of beautiful new snow, to rain, to single digits and solid ice on the side roads. South Central Alaska winters aren't what it was 10 years ago.

RE: Winter sets in

Trouble is, it means that grass has to be mowed year round. I had to run my snow blower twice today to clear the snow!

RE: Denali NP-probable shutdown 2020 season-Updated 2/19/20

Please don't change your travel plans due to part of the road being closed (might be), Alaska has so much more than Denali NP. Every animal in the park can also be seen outside of the park, it's not like a zoo. The views from the south side are spectacular (Byers Lake area, Trapper Creek, Talkeetna), I see it on my daily drive (weather permitting) and never get tired of its splendor.

RE: Good thing Ford TC haulers don’t use the tailgates ...

Do people actually use the daylight running light settings? One of my biggest pet peeves it the fact that most folks that use that setting don't realize that it only turns on the headlights on the majority of vehicles. So those folks drive around in the rain and at night with no lit tail or marker lights. I'm with you 100% on this Buzzcut, it's a pet peve of mine. I leave my light switch in the auto position and have the light sensor covered so ALL of my lights are on all of the time for safety. Lights are not only for you to see, but for others to see you also!

RE: Thanks for fixing the forum problems.

Most of the threads in the Truck Camper forum will not open for me.

RE: Ideal V8 rpms when towing?

It's RPM (Revolutions per minute)as in the number of turns in one minute. Not RPMS (Revolutions per minutes), we have no idea how many minutes you are talking about. Lower RPM does not always give the best gas/fuel mileage, you can lug an engine down too low and hurt your mileage. Depending on your load, the sweet spot can change for the best mileage.

This thread still shows the error message with both Good Sam and RV.Net portals. Oops something is wrong

RE: Thanks for fixing the forum problems.

I still get the message when opening some threads while using the Good Sam portal. Same thing on the RV.Net portal, must be something with the thread.

RE: Error Messages

Not ignoring I am just unable to duplicate the error message hence I don't have an example for them to troubleshoot. Most are just hitting the F5 key when they see it. I use and Firefox. It's kinda like going into a auto mechanics shop Mechanic says "What's wrong with it?" Driver says "People say it makes a funny sound" Mechanic says "Where is it coming from?" Driver says "I don't know" Mechanic says "What does it sound like?" Driver says "I can't hear it" Not good but that's what I'm stuck with. Some people run into the Captca whereas I don't see it. I got nothing to send to IT. I'm stuck and no way out at this time. Admin I cannot access most of the forum without see the error message whether using Internet Explorer or Edge, and also trying the RV.Net or Good Sam portals. It's definitely something in the servers, as this is the only forum doing this.
