Wolf Creek/Arctic Fox heater hose mod

One pretty big flaw in my opinion the Arctic Fox/Wolf Creek brand has is a non ducted furnace. They just have a central heater therefore the bathroom, cabover and basement all lack a way to get heat to them. Lance and other manufacturers have dedicated ducts in all these areas. Every winter I scratch my head and go “what was and apparently still is northwood doing/thinking?” When we are Snow camping the cabover and bathroom are freezing cold and my basement plumbing has froze up despite them putting a cheesy little computer fan right by the door where cold air comes in. Not really sure this passes as a 4 season camper Lol! I have just kinda delt with this over the years and use our wave 3 cat heater put it on the stove and point it to the cabover at night;) Central heater with 2 ducts in the exact same place on my WC 850 We’ll hopefully this mod will help someone out. My boat has these pull out heater tubes. So I decided to order one and try it out in the Wolf creek Heater tube shown on the cabover step Heater tube installed Vent now pulls out and can get heat to the cabover or put it into the basement. Will need to replace the second one and will be able to get heat to the bathroom.

RE: Shower valves upgrade PICTORIAL

Bringing this thread back to life as mine after about 5 years of use and the handle finally seized up. As this is one of the best MODS I have done to my camper I am searching for a replacement. Does anyone know of any other products that would work. I can't seem to find anything. (This is for the bathroom sink/shower combo)

TR: where did all the water go?

We ventured out a couple weeks ago headed to Lake Powell trying to find solitude. We found the lake so low we couldn’t even access our same spot last year!! August 2020 August 2020 August 2020 July 2021 same spot we camped last year!!! You can barely see the water line We continued out on the mud flat and found a Tacoma on the water line buried to his axles. This is as far as we went. I have had my experience getting buried in mud and unfortunately did not risk it and couldn’t help the poor fellow. I was unable to reach the shore line but did get some cool TC pics :) We headed over to lone rock campground and joined the masses It actually wasn’t too bad because the water level is so low there is a lot of room for people to camp Launching the Watercraft from the shore In anticipation of some long touring far up lake into some very remote canyons and dangling rope marina being closed I was able to find a nice aftermarket fuel caddy. I am able to store two fives gallon jugs on the back and one 5 gallon jug in the center hatch. Which gives me a range of approximately 150 miles. This was a father son trip for 6 nights at lone rock :) We did this 30ft cliff jump last year and now it has to be well over 80 feet now!! LAST YEARS PIC We had to find some new rocks to leap off But the main reason we come is for the amazing remote side canyons to explore :) Pirates of the Caribbean video:) Even though the lake is at an insane low level we had a blast bonding, truck camping and touring around. Not sure if the lake will continue to drop but boy do we need some rain out here. Hope you enjoyed the pics

RE: When to throw in the towel...

Your story reminds me when we had a tent trailer and our 6 month old wailed all night long and the whole campground could hear us!!! I can’t imagine twins and it being crazy hot out!! We too cut our trip short. We sold the tent trailer right away ;) when the kids were super young my DW would stay at home for her vacation and I would take the kids out adventuring! :) We always used the white noise makers with our kids and now my DW uses it on me to blurt out my snoring LOL!! Now when there’s no sound I have trouble sleeping :0 We are camping at Lake Powell and using the AC at night with the white noise maker really helps. My Coleman 9000 sounds like a 747 taking off and my head is inside the engine compartment but with the white noise drowns out the compressor firing on and off. I really need to do that fan swap out.

RE: Get these teenagers outta here!!! Plus magical buff/wax ;)

Do you lose the decals with that kind of wax regimen? you just have to be careful around them. It depends on the quality of the decals. The outfitter logo's where pretty faded to begin with but it took them down pretty good. Luckily Outfitter still has some of the old style logos and at $28 you can't beat it! The Eco trailer decals held up great with the exception of the ECO name faded a bit but not that noticeable. This is a process you are not going to want to do often ;)

RE: Get these teenagers outta here!!! Plus magical buff/wax ;)

So what's the buff/wax process you used? It’s labor intensive but well worth it #1 Wet sand @ 1000 grit #2 Ardex 600 marine compound (this is the magic stuff!!! Simply amazing) #3 menzurna 400 #4 meguires marine wax #5 800 MG of ibuprofen and a few beers ;)

RE: Get these teenagers outta here!!! Plus magical buff/wax ;)

No weight issues? Or do you limit use to short trip? Can barely feel it back there, plus had all the water full, but it’s only 1hr to the beach so not that far. I don’t really plan on pulling it long distance.

Get these teenagers outta here!!! Plus magical buff/wax ;)

It’s not my teenagers it’s their friends!! And boy they can thrash some stuff, One downside to a TC that I didn’t think about. Well, decided to buy a 2500 lb single axle Dutchman travel trailer to pull with us mainly when we beach camp this summer, and possibly to anza borrego in the winter. Anyone else do this? Figure I can sell the trailer anytime and put them all back in a tent if they don’t take care of it. On another note I found some a buff/wax process that turned this thing look brand new ;) Front cap done side still chalky Also restored this apex 9.5 and brought it back to life ;) (sold it already) Before After

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yes I think we will bring the watercraft. Hard to go out there and not bring them ;) we recently picked up an older Malibu wakesetter so would probably go to Lone Rock, hopefully not wall to wall rv’s :0 Yes he is hauling with a 3/4 ton.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Another pic showing how light and bright the rear of the camper is. Look at all them windows and counter space!!!! Are those full length drawers under the dinnette seats? Yes pretty sure they are carpeted full length, meeting up with him manana will check it out!!! The only thing holding me back from buying one is non bunk option My BIL picked up his WC850 today and is stoked, thinking of a WC reunion at Lake Powell in May ;)

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yeah, the interior layout looks awesome. Knowing how the tanks are positioned on a similar size AF, I'd say the batteries and hot water location just offset the gray and black tanks. Tanks now in front and batteries and hot water in back. If anything, gray/black tanks near the front, if that's the case, would put more weight forward of the axle when they're full, then 2 batteries do. Bottom line it's a TC, it's heavy, go have fun! Where's the propane bottles hiding though? I looked at a couple other pics and don't see a propane compartment on either side. Only drawback, IMO is it has a smaller fresh water tank than comparable AF units. Packing as much fresh water as possible is a priority for me for camping without hookups. Well, that's the thing. It's no AF. WC's are way off from AFs capacities. BTW, who drives any long distance with their dump tanks full? I alwaYs run empty. Makes no sense to lug all that disposable weight around. We always leave home with the 50 gal fresh H20 full. It’s got to go somewhere! Not unusual it stays with us until we get home. It’s usually all grey and black by that time. Yes I agree, I usually just wait until I get home to dump everything if we are close. #1 I don’t feel like it and I have a cleanout at my house to dump. #2 the insane fees to dump, its not uncommon for campgrounds now to charge outrageous fees to dump a relatively small holding tank (20 gallons) for the full price of a huge 30+ fifth wheel with 75+ . Holding tanks!! I always scratch my head thinking why am I paying the same price as a huge fifth wheel that has at least double if not triple the waste?

Pretty sure my friend is picking up one of the first 890’s today he is super stoked as am I for him!! On top of that my BIL just bought a used 2016 WC 850 up in WA for 14k what a deal ;)

RE: Who’s still using a 7.3 diesel truck Ole Frosty keeps chugging along, I am looking at 280k miles (bought it with approx 190k) over 10 years ago for 8k and 90% of those miles are with the TC. I have replaced the alternator, coolant reservoir, parking break cable, and on my 3rd set of BFG’s. Added Torklift upper and lower stable loads that’s pretty much it. 4th gear (stick shift) occasionally slip out of gear sometimes :(. Also need some batteries soon.
