RE: Battery monitor upgrade: Out with the old, in with the new

Nice video, I had installed my Victron 712/BT smart battery monitor two days ago. I did have a lot of trouble in getting the blue tooth to connect, since I was installing a lithium battery there's a number of setting that have to be changed so the Victron 712/BT knows its reading a lithium battery.

RE: Lance 815 Stove Replacement

That is the same stove that came factory in my 04 Lance 815. Looked like a nice easy swap. Just be careful with a large pot on the right burner as the heat may come off the edge and melt the knobs. Not from experience, but from the previous owner. I haven't had a problem but only use a 4qt pot on the right burner. I did take note of that burner and thanks for the information.while searching for a new stove I discovered that there's simply not a lot of choices.

Lance 815 Stove Replacement

It's been awhile since I've posted anything on RV.net. I made a video of installing a replacement 2 burner stove in my 2002 Lance 815, the old Atwood was worn out so it was time for a new one. Stove Replacement

RE: Anyone going to Quartzite

I'll be there in Feb for the Truck Camper magazine rally. Planning on being more over near Phoenix or Tucson in Jan. It's the Truck Camper Adventure Rally at Road Runner Wash. Rally 53 TCs have signed up for this first time event that Truck Camper Adventure is putting on. I'm looking to seeing everyone who signed up there, plus 21 TCers have signed up to do the Bradshaw Trail. To my personal knowledge this would be the largest group of TC's that's transverse this trail.

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

Most like at sometime all of us have rode in the TC, is it safe, not a chance. Here's a link that show state by state if you can or can't. Riding in a TC You decide for yourself, it's a risk.

RE: Preventing Butyl Tape from oozing out

I use pro-flex for covering over the Butyl tape. Have been able to stop all the oozing except the door threshold plate, TCing since 2002!

RE: Moki Dugway, can I do it?

Leaving Cortez Co. for destinations in the west, was just wondering if it is doable for us being what we are, a long bed Ford DRW towing a 14 ft. utility cargo trailer on a 42 inch extension which enables us good maneuverability for some very tight spots. Our truck camper is a Arctic Fox 992 on a 2012 Ford DRW 6.7 diesel.you are I've been on the Moki Dugway several times and I've seen rigs longer than your tackle this road, just swing wide on the curves and take it slow. Me and a friend on the Moki Dugway.

RE: Alaska RV trip loop routes/planning resources

Planning a trip with our 3 boys who will be 17, 14, 8, to Alaska, Mid July 2020 for 3 weeks. We don't have time to drive there with our TT, so will fly, into Anchorage and hire a Motorhome. Prob spend 2 nights Anchorage, then want to plan a loop route. Perhaps with campground suggestions, or even spots to boondock? or campgrounds with fishing. Any itinerary ideas, perhaps also including the lesser known but still accessible? We would also like to be in some areas with fishing (not on a boat), and not where you have to fight for a spot to stand. We like to spend a few days in each place, and limit driving to just a few long drives, but with mostly shorter drives (perhaps 2-3hrs). Thanks! Not a lot of time even for flying up there, I'm going to limit to two places due to your time frame. 1) McCarthly/Kennicott copper mills there's ,fishing along the way and lots of beautiful scenery. 2) Homer Spit Also check out the trip reports posted in the Truck Camper Forum on Alaska, there's plenty of them with photos and videos. Any questions just PM me.

RE: Converted to Lithium-Ion be careful.

Print one subjective article about lithium batteries and people run amok. My brother has lived in Ventura since the early 70's and know's many divers and fishermen that have been on the Conception over the years, none of them who knew that boat wouldn't sleep below deck, they called the berths below "coffin bunks", no way to get out in case of a fire. Since they just got the remains of the boat on dry land maybe they might be able to find the cause or not,anything else is pure speculation!

RE: My DC Compressor Fridge conversion in progress

The one I'm looking at, max draw is 6.5 amps at 100% duty cycle but less than 1.2 amps cycling. is there any stats on how many Ah one of these fridges would draw over a 24 hour period? would be nice to see something say at a 40 degree cabnet temp in 90 degree weather parked in the sun it used so many Ah. Steve I have this refrigerator Dometic CR1110, this link has some information that may answer some of your questions but on my unit. Dometic CR1110 This refrigerator will stay below 40 degrees on days that are over a 100.

RE: Alaska cancels Prince Rupert, B.C., ferry service

I was following another group on Facebook who got caught up in this ferry mess, they got stranded in Sitka, AK. They had to cancel their trip and put their rigs on barges to the USA.

RE: My DC Compressor Fridge conversion in progress

toddb, nice write up and a different approach of conversion of the existing refrigeration unit. Keep us updated on your progress for it look likes you still have some "bugs" to work out. The "Dutch Aire" compressor shown in your photos look very much like the " Danfross" compressor with the same electronic control package, if it is so you have a good unit. Until your posting I didn't know there were any compressor conversion units out there. In 2013 I switched out my old RV refrigerator for a compressor type..Dometic CR1110 and have never regretted it, it's nice to reach in and pull out a cold one when it's over a hundred outside. CR1110 Install Geewizard.. Thanks for the link, I've book marked it.

RE: Traveling through Canada with Dogs

Our 2018 journey we brought our dog, had all the the papers that were needed, never were we asked to show them coming and going. None the less have them just in case.

RE: Clean Trucks? Electric Truck?

I have a 2002 RAM 2500 hauling my Arctic Fox. The AF is a little small inside but with some mods I think it's getting more comfortable. The problem is, I want to ship it to Europe for some adventures, but it can't be driven anywhere because it's subject to so many issues with emissions over there. I'd be banned from most of Germany, lots of Italy, etc. Now, I think I have 2 options to fix this situation and the likely similar situations coming to the USA eventually. 1) Buy a gasser to replace the 2500 Cummins 2) Convert the Cummins to an electrical, zero emissions vehicle ( Let's not debate that one, I'd rather keep the diesel but I want to be able to stick my TC in the center of Berlin if I feel like it... That's the advantage of a TC.) First, what gasser can possibly replace a Ram 2500 with 24v Cummins turbo diesel? It would be nice to have a 3500 so I didn't have to do all the crazy mods to a 2500 that have.been done to mine. Is it going to completely suck up hills? How about down hills? I use an exhaust brake now. Am I going to have overheating brakes in mountains? Also, what's the lowest emission gasser to be able to replace a Cummins truck? If I do an electric conversion, can I regenerate through the main electric motor by down shifting? It's a manual transmission. Do they sell aftermarket regenerative brakes? That are heavy duty? Rent a RV in Europe problem solved, there are several website you can check out just do a search.
