RE: window caulk

Last time I did my camper, I used OSI Quad-Max for everything except the roof (it is not self leveling.) https://www.ositough.com/en/products/view-all-products/window-sealant-window-caulking-quad-max.html

RE: What Would Happen If?

I will stuff all of the material in the envelope that was sent to including the printed form with my name and take a sharpie and circle my name & address and then write on the side to "kindly remove me from your mailing list." They pay for the postage and generally get the hint.

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank in front of the slide in camper

As far as "squishing" goes... getting hit with a camper as set up like mine is not really different from a typical overhanging camper in that avoidance is best- damage could happen. but... the key think is to make a bulkhead at the front similar to what I show. In my opinion, any component up there (gas tank, generator, etc) should not be the component that "acts" as this bulkhead. The bulkhead needs to be independent from the items places in it. I think that is a fuel tank is going to be installed in the space, then a cutsom built bulkhead should be considered. this bulkhead will also keep the camper in place when strapping down the tie-downs. remember, the front tie-downs will want an angle to apply a force to keep the camper in place by that forward direction. In my opinion, the better product for this will be Tork-Lift by virtue of it s location (lower and more at and angle than say the Happi Jacs which will heave less of an angle.

RE: Auxiliary fuel tank in front of the slide in camper

~... I have a dodge ram 3500 dually with an 8 ft bed. I want to get a Lance camper 815 that is 8ft 3 inches and pull it back 9-12 inches...~ I am not familiar with Lance campers, but it will need to be determined if the specific model in question is build (from the factor) such that is can be used on a short bed truck. i.e., the overhanging portion can be self supporting. I have done what the OP is asking with respect to NorthStar campers. The Arrow can be used on either long or short beds. They made a model that was interchangeable (literally) on either length bed and detachable side saddles could be mounted at the back if is was on the short bed. Mine had the permanent mounted side saddle and if this model can work on a short bed, it will certainly work on a long bed. The COG is the same on both applications because the distance from truck bumper to axle C.L. is the same on both. ...obviously, tie downs will need to be fabricate or altered as well as a custom built bulkhead space specific to OP's needs will be required. I used my set-back camper space for a generator and other storage; https://i.imgur.com/iRAg9Bsl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/567ny5Ul.jpg https://i.imgur.com/4ZCao4Nl.jpg

RE: Is support needed when storing for an extended time?

Hello all. I am fairly new to truck campers, about a year now. I have been leaving the camper- Cirrus 820- sit on the jacks when not in use. Sometimes for a month or two. Is a platform or stand needed to take the weight off of the jacks when not in use? And if you use them, how did you construct them? TIA and Happy New Year! This is what I did when I had the TC: I use 5 tiers of PT 6x6: There is 3/4PT attached to the bottom of the camper and 2 6x's - continuous in the long direction tiers, 3 each in the short direction. This is to fully support my camper when off the truck at home (I never take it off in the field.) The lumber takes almost all of the weight as the jacks are there just to keep it all steady... just a crank or 2 on the jack the hit the ground. I feel this is very stable event though it it relatively tall. I do not need to go much higher when loading it on to the truck. I regularly get into the upper cab to access the upper cabs or make the bed and it is VERY stable. http://i.imgur.com/6r9JLC9l.jpg One other thing to consider: I would recommend checking with the camper manufacturer on their take whether or not the TC can be unsupported with water, waste tanks, etc.

RE: Bittersweet

The experience of the rebuild and renovation is something that cannot be taken away even if that particular RV model is no longer in the picture! ...be proud of the work!

RE: Fast Gun issue?

Pete, ...if you use the add-a-link component, be sure that they don't back off the threads and open up while driving (you want the "O" shape, not the "C" shape.) If it opens up, the integrity could perhaps be compromised.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

I have done it when needing to set-up the SB camper on a LB truck, used the add-a-link as 3T mentioned above at the TL end and more than a few chain links along with a zip-tie to keep the excess from dangling: https://i.imgur.com/sfmiiFVl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/j5SNzQkl.jpg

RE: A Very Touching Movie

I prefer non-fiction, fact- based dramas. After watching "Sully", the story of the miracle on the Hudson, I sought out other movies by the actor Aaron Eckhart who played the First Officer in that airline drama. A movie that I came across of which I viewed om Amazon Prime was "My All American." It is an emotional film about The Story of Freddie Joe Steinmark. Folks, I let you read the links in the caption above to inspire you to also watch this moving movie. It tells the true story about an underdog facing the hardest challenge of his life after leading his team to a championship.

RE: Purchasing Warped Roof 1997 Bigfoot 2500 9’6”?

I think it is a good thing that you passed... Even for $3,000 it sounds too far gone from what you described. I once paid $3K for camper that was less profound, I knew I had to do some work in the OH area and knowing now I would not do it again. If water is dripping then it is a complete rebuild and IMHO, not worth much. For you, it is a good thing that he did not take your $3K... from waht you describe, you would be doing him a favor to remove it at no cost.
