RE: TT tire pressure - sticker or tire PSI?

Good Sam guy installed an E. Which tire shop was the tech from? (he only has a referral from Good Sam) Like others have said, it's probably time to replace all tires. I use Goodyear Endurance on my cargo trailers

RE: Battery Monitor Install

I installed this one. It will display info on my tablet or smartphone with Bluetooth connectivity and an app.

RE: New Onan Generator

Isn't the 2.5kw LP the same one that's been around for years and the new 2.8kw gas a completely new generator? Yep, according to what I can find. The new design is only Gas at this point. The details in the original post list QC and CQ - both of those model designations are wrong. The gasser model is a QG2800i The previous models were Gas = 2800 watts, LP= 2500 watts. No details on the LP model yet.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas burner mpg hauling TC

Never makes sense to get all worked up about what kind of fuel mileage a given hauling / towing vehicle gets when it's doing its job of hauling or towing. In the grand scheme of things, several MPGs difference doesn't make that big of a dent in the cost of fuel for a trip. If it does hurt that much (to a persons pocket book) they probably shouldn't be RVing in the first place. Sorry to rain on the parade, but a friend told me this years ago, and I agree with it now. My dually only gets about 10.5-11.5 hauling my 811 and a cargo trailer. It's a cost of having fun. I had a blast going to Colorado for a week this summer. It was about a 2500 mile trip. In the 11 years I've owned this truck, I've never been able to fuel up as cheaply as I did this summer. I'd run it down to 1/4 tank and still not spend over $58.00 to fill it. Many previous trips, I'd hit the max limit of a given fuel stations "credit card limit" and have to run the card twice to fill up... which was upwards of $125.00 per fill up! If my tow rig was also my daily driver, then I'd probably want something that got reasonable MPG as a daily driver.... but in my case, my truck is horrible on fuel as a daily driver.... it only gets 11.5-12, so I've always had a commuter car as my DD.

RE: What a way to start a trip

The other driver's insurance should be paying for it since they are liable. Looks like a fairly new Lance. THe way the back was is all fubared, I'd say it's a factory repair, or total it and walk away, then go camper shopping.

RE: Front Frame Mount Tie Downs Not Working!

I’m going to make it strong, so the only way this can fail now is for it to bend the cross beam of the bed, bend the square tubing of the Torklift mount, or rip the bolts out of the frame. Sounds like the above should happen in short order since your camper seems to go sideways in the bed (shifting 11" to the passenger side at the front), or "go to space" as you said earlier. I've still never heard of a Torklift mount failing. It’s bumps sending it into space, I’m sure. If you are hitting bumps that cause the truck camper to launch to space (lift off the bed) enough that it shifts 11" to the passenger side at the front, SLOW DOWN. The items below that you said still baffle us: Yes, I have a rubber mat in the bed to keep the TC gripping and in place. Trouble is, there isn’t enough downward pressure to hold it on the mat since both frame mounts are now broken. How can a 3500lb camper not exert enough downward pressure to keep it from moving, unless you apply more "pressure" with the tiedowns? It doesn’t move until the frame mounts fall apart leaving it floating. Explain this "floating". I took some measurements. The back of the camper hasn’t really moved. The front has moved 11 inches off center to the passenger side. Also explain how the front can shift 11" to one side. My 811 fits in my truck bed such that I only have 2.75" of clearance between the camper and the side of the truck bed. There's only about 1" or less at the back, at the tailgate opening. I've had my truck and 811 since fall of 2009. The truck hit 68k miles this summer. It's not my daily driver. A conservative estimate is that 40k miles have been with the camper on the truck, while towing one of several cargo trailers I have / have had. The camper has NEVER shifted in the bed. I run Fastguns, and have them adjust a little on the loose side. Even then, the camper has never moved in 10 years of traveling.

RE: Interesting entry steps / stairs.

Steps like the ones in the original post also dump dirt / water, etc in the door when you fold them up if you don't thoroughly clean them off before stowing. A lot of TT owners hate that style step for the same reason. I prefer a steps that stow in place and can be quickly accessed. Ditto. Here's the steps I run

RE: New tow vehicle!

WA doesn’t have a right and left side of the Cascades, it has a right and wrong side! Lol This is so true! I moved from the wrong side to the right side in 2013.

RE: New Onan Generator

.....Now if they would only make there generators more reliable and less troublesome like most portables.. Lack of use is what causes the problems.

RE: Beech Lane Levelers

Beech Lane are less likely to break compare to the Andersen levelers. I've seen multiple broken Andersens.

RE: Fed up with tire blow outs!!!

Whatever route you choose to go for tire upgrades, have the shop balance them. I show why in this video, although the tires in the video are really cheap, extremely low end tires made overseas. I'd also get all metal valve stems so you can add a TMPS system In this video I do more rambling about ST tires when I show a set of Goodyear Endurance I installed on a small cargo trailer.

RE: Teaching Your Spouse How to Pull a Trailer

Not sure why a car with a CVT would have paddle shifters... Subaru CVTs have "psuedo" shift points. I down shift to maintain speed going down a hill where the speed limit goes from 45 to 35 on commute. 2013 Crosstrek with CVT that thinks it's a 5 speed.

Well, I removed it already because I'm upgrading to a different truck camper.

RE: Should I consider an onboard air pump??

My question is how practical is the extra expense for blue tooth controlled pump when the use is seasonal and not daily movement??. I haven't seen or heard of a Bluetooth system I run the Airlift Wireless controller and compressor. It's been flawless for the 10 years I've used it. I would never want to deal with manually inflating the airbags. I can change pressure on the fly. Get a wireless system and go camping!
