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

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.

RE: ERROR MESSAGE

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 RV.net 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 RV.net 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. https://i.imgur.com/F44VDOYl.jpg

RE: Error Messages

So now I can't access the truck camper forum or even the original thread in here on this "we're sorry" issue. Honestly is anyone looking into this????

RE: We're sorry. An error has occurred.

Two days in a row for me that I can't see the Truck Camper section of the forum no matter if I use Good Sam or RV.Net portals. Is anyone addressing the issue, I don't see any forum admin response in this thread.

RE: Fuel mileage 2017 gas trucks

I'm kinda weird, but I have every gas receipt for all of my vehicles and calculate the mileage and expense's on an annual basis. For my 2012 GMC 2500 6.0 it's every April. I purchased my camper in Aug of 2013, so the first year and 4 months it was truck and 16' trailer with ATV's, after that it's my Wolf Creek 850 and the same trailer with ATV/UTV. My truck is not a daily driver, it's my dedicated weekender camping rig. 2018-2019 4,666 Miles Driven 457.60 Gallons of gas 10.19 MPG $1,443.73 Total gas expense $3.15 Avg per gallon 2017-2018 4,332 Miles Driven 424.87 Gallons of gas 10.19 MPG $1,219.25 Total gas expense $2.86 Avg per gallon 2016-2017 3,786 Miles Driven 378.81 Gallons of gas 9.99 MPG $1,961.45 Total gas expense $2.53 Avg per gallon 2015-2016 4,572 Miles Driven 432.11 Gallons of gas 10.58 MPG $1,133.19 Total gas expense $2.62 Avg per gallon 2014-2015 4,500 Miles Driven 421.42 Gallons of gas 10.67 MPG $1,515.11 Total gas expense $3.59 Avg per gallon 2013-2014 (camper July 2013) 6,557 Miles Driven 581.33 Gallons of gas 11.28 MPG $2,222.86 Total gas expense $3.82 Avg per gallon 2012-2013 7,058 Miles Driven 537.22 Gallons of gas 13.13 MPG $2,133.05 Total gas expense $3.97 Avg per gallon

RE: Question about tire pressure

You need to air them up to 80 PSI, your camper is heavier than you are giving it credit for. Underinflated tires overheat and eventually you'll have a blowout.

I carry my Honda in the right side rear box that was designed for the Onan generator option. https://i.imgur.com/zq2zceXl.jpg
