RE: Bigfoot 25c 10.4 long bed

Congratulations on your new Northern Lite Camper! I’m sure you’ll be very happy with it. As far as the water in the propane compartment, Bigfoot does not install a bottom seal to allow propane to exit the compartment in the event of a leak. The floor of the propane compartment is plastic. Unfortunately,this also allows water in. Many owners have installed a aluminum angle with a gasket to stop the water. The basement should not have water at all! Perhaps the dealer neglected to lock it prior to a rain storm. The battery box on the newer 10.4 models was re-designed. I believe there is a sliding tray in the compartment to allow for 2 batteries. I can’t see Bigfoot only having 1 battery and 2 propane tanks. Best of luck to you Bob

RE: Bigfoot 25c 10.4 long bed

We have 2 Interstate group 24’s in ours but there is room for larger sizes if needed Bob

RE: Bigfoot rear step

Could it be from a Northern Lite?

RE: Northern Lite campers No Black Tank Clean out

Santi-Flush system is the best was to clean your black tank with out having to enter the camper. Dump then flush tanks until water runs clear. Doesn’t get easier or cleaner

RE: Unloading and camper support This is how I support the Bigfoot at home. On the road the camper is lowered more and lynx leveler blocks with cap are used instead of wood blocks. Been doing it this way for 9 years without any problems. Bob

RE: Unloading and camper support

We did 3 months with the camper off the truck. Lower the jacks to maintain clearance for sewer hose connection. Then we placed 3 lynx levelers and 1 leveler cap under each of the 4 aluminum stacker jacks. On top of the jacks a 4x4 the width of the camper bottom with carpeting glued on the contact side. On the jack side, drill holes to accept jack heads about 1/2” deep. All items store in the camper basement when traveling. Kept the camper very stable. Jacks need re tightening after settling Bob

RE: Help! One of my jacks won't retract or extend!

We had lots of problems with our 4600 jacks. Finally replaced both fronts with 4800 ‘s. They are a bit longer than the 4600’s and greater lifting capacity. Check with happijac for rebuilt vs new. When Gary was still there he helped us out. Don’t know who does his job now. If you can get the 4800’s it’s worth it

RE: Bigfoot model not seen before

I don’t recall Bigfoot offering this option. You could contact Grant @ Bigfoot Industries for confirmation

RE: Camper window for aft of cab leaks

Make sure all your roof vents are closed tight! Ours did the same thing one trip and the cab-over vent was creating a vacuum, drawing air and water in the pass thru window through the weep holes. Tightening down the vent crank handle solved the problem.

RE: 2x10 between camper and front of bed or not?

I also use a 1x6 pine board with a 45 cut at the top. It keeps the camper from contacting the truck’s tail lights.

RE: unable to find tie downs for 3500

Make sure you select hitch type and running board information also. Should have a fit for your truck

RE: comparing Northern Lite and Bigfoot 25c 10.4

Our camper had no A/C when we bought it, but was pre wired for it. We installed a Coleman Polar Cub 9200. We can run the unit with a single Honda eu2000i which can be stored/transported in the driver’s side rear outside compartment.

RE: comparing Northern Lite and Bigfoot 25c 10.4

I agree,as previously mentioned, both are good campers. Owning our 10.4 for almost 9 years the short queen bed hasn’t been a issue, nor has the mid bath that divides the camper into sections. The refrigerator door can hit the bathroom door if fully opened,but rarely happens. The dinette is fine for my wife and I. The panoramic view from the rear of the camper as Beagle mentioned,makes the floor plan. The skylight is another hole in the roof but the natural light in the early morning allows me to read without lights on. The ducted furnace provides more than enough heat to the whole camper quickly. Especially nice on those cold mornings is the duct in the bathroom. Sewer hose storage on the Bigfoot was poor. I attached a 6”x6” vinyl fence post under the camper bumper for storage. We are overall pleased with the camper. A lot comes down to personal preference

RE: Anyone here with a Bigfoot TC?

Hi welsteach Congratulations on your Bigfoot purchase! Lots of storage and good tank size but no storage for the sewer hose. I attached a 6”x6” vinyl fence post under the camper bumper to store it. Also check your converter/charger. The parallax will boil your batteries. Progressive Dynamics makes a replacement smart charger that is easy to install. Enjoy ! Bob

RE: F350 and Northern Lite 10-2

You could go with pressure treated or marine plywood and a bed mat. Costs more but less likely to warp or rot Bob

RE: F350 and Northern Lite 10-2

Hi Gary Congratulations on the new rig! The horse stall mat sounds like the best option. It won’t rot and the weight won’t be an issue with your dually Bob
