RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

we are finally good to go local mechanic said the problem was behind the plug on the camper I was not there and could care less what it was as long as it works like it should and it does now and we are using the twenty foot cord the undercoating and bedlinen coating made it hard to find a good ground on the plug up front and since I brought him the long cord that is where he put it the back bumper. We are making plans to get on the road hopefully by the weekend.

RE: Best selling truck campers (by volume) ?

The tiger 4x4 seems to be the best I have seen looks like a clam shell design like bigfoot and a truck, and a class C really like the tiger design

2019 Northern lite cummins oil change

Up front apology on any format errors I have a basset hound in my lap. All truck campers and class C we have owned have a plate to take off under the camper, then the oil drain plug. there are a total of three vent like covers under the generator and they all have caulk around them. have yet to find which one to take off to find the plug. and the generator seems to run very much on the rich side it is not a L P leak it is a very strong L P smell coming from the exhaust. We were spending the night bringing it home and a full L P tank only lasted about three hours only using the air conditioner. Any help appreciated hope no one gets mad about this post

RE: Bought a 2019 Northern Lite10'2 EX CD SE dry bath

Thanks everyone my V nose trailer the tongue (I guess right name) is only about 3 feet long so length that I think is better than a super truss I have a 10-2excd. I know it will be difficult to put the step down but it would be the same problem with the super truss. The only thing I haul in the trailer is my Harley Limited low

RE: Anyone running this particular WD hitch on a SuperTruss?

I am going to a welding shopped having the tongue on the trailer strengthened,, and made longer the welds are stronger than the steel I have a V nose trailer and it has the shortest tongue that attaches to the ball about 3 feet. can't wait I can then bring my motorcycle along. I live close to Rome Georgia and Center Alabama if you know someone that doe3s good work and is honest please let me know

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

My leg was not long enough to push brake pedal while truck is in reverse and then look at the lights at the same time. one other problem`the week before I bought the camper it had not rained at the dealership and it has not rained on the way home and still has not rained. before we left the sales lot the dealer had the camper washed they put the camper on the truck. When I got home I was going to take the camper off the truck, the remote did not work the dealer had me try and jump the circuit breaker, that did not work. called Lippert, HappiJac they had me check the board no light that should have been on but there was water in the enclosed area where the holding tanks and the circuit board is located. I do not know how water got in that compartment maybe when it was being washed the door was not latched but apparently the water shorted out the board. HappiJac was happy to send me a new board I paid the shipping. A drawer the dealer was suppose to fix because it would not stay shut when the truck moved with the camper on it, I fixed the drawer at home, when we inspected the camper the carpet was rolled up after we had them roll up the carpet because I have a basset hound there was a scratch in the vinyl just saw the carpet was rolled up I did not enter the camper again until I was about 200 miles away from the dealer. I started the generator the propane smell was almost like unburnt propane, the one propane tank went empty in twenty minutes. After I parked the camper on the way home I moved the curtain by the window that is right behind the rear window on the truck what I saw was a stream of dried glue about 4 or 5 inches long. yes there were a couple other small problems which are my problems now. The new dealership in Jacksonville Fl does not yet have repair men on site the dealer (owner) told me that The dealer is sending me a ambilical cord 20 foot long, because the factory installed 7 pin connecter checked out perfectly on the truck, the one in the front left side of the bed does not have a good ground. I hand cranked the camper off the truck at home after I got home ,remember bad board,(98 degrees that day) I needed the truck. So when the cord arrives the truck pins are correct so if there is a problem we then know it is in the camper. Thank all of you who were objective and for those who were sarcastic Thank you for your sarcasm and no help

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

What I would like to reply I will not. I thought up till now this forum was here to help people . So thank you for your help. I did not ask Northern Lite to diagnose a problem I was asking if they could recommend someone closer to me to provide service.

RE: bigfoot and northern lite details on their construction

I now own a Northern Lite , at one time I owned a Real Lite had a side door and jack knife couch, and it was a four season camper it had copper shut off valves to cut the water off to the outside shower. Surprised that Northern Lite and Bigfoot neither one has a valve to cut water off to the outside shower, when it is below freezing I would think the valves on the hot and cold water side might freeze?

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

They are both male connectors, after the sun goes down today I am going to look at it again. If I get no where then I will call the dealer and they can have a go at it. (400 plus miles away) The day I picked the camper up it was HOT! The employees were over worked it was obvious, maybe I am old but when you pay $48 thousand for a camper and darkness is approaching the people that hooked up everything and put the camper on the truck should say, let us check and make sure all the lights are working properly. after labor day if the issue is unresolved I am going to ask D&H R. V. sales to se if they can fix the problem .

RE: Northern Lite truck to camper cord

I am going to go buy a pig tail tester today and new cord This was the third time I asked for Northern Lites help to find repair service I I should not have to pay for or drive 471 miles to the dealer. I would be happy to copy and paste Northern Lites e-mail to me, it was pretty snotty. I was going through the paper work and found the PREDELIVERY sheet still in the envelope NOT FILLED OUT NOTHING WAS CHECKED ON THE FORM. I do not blame the dealers employees completely they were jumping from job to job and constantly being asked to do something else before they finished there last four or five jobs. If I have to return to the dealer I would like to have my gas and one nights stay at a campground paid for. Wish I had bought the Bigfoot and 4K cheaper but the wife liked this one. once they asked me to sign a arbitration paper I should have run away.

Northern Lite truck to camper cord

I bought a new 2019 10-2 after leaving the dealer I thought I would double checked the lights. I had running lights, turned on the flashers they worked so I thought I had brake and turn signals. I was stopped by the highway patrol seems like every time I hit the brake the back up lights came on. This has been the never ending story of Northern Lite annoying problems. I was trying to find out from Northern Lite if there was a dealer or repair shop I could take the R.V. to that was closer than 400 miles. Here is Northern Lite's response "THIS IS NOT SOMETHING WE ARE INVOLVED WITH" . This is comforting wonder what the something is that they are involved with. Anyway, I have a 07 GMC, (you know the camper a 2019 Northern Lite 10-2) I have a factory trailer hitch and a factory plug in for a trailer if you have suggestions please help as it is, we are stuck not able to hit the road, I did get the camper home but sure need help with how to wire up everything.

You get what you pay for sometimes. We had a fire and our so called farm insurance put the screws to us.

RE: Solar Panel

got it fixed the fuse, was behind board thanks guys I have had two previous truck campers then a class C then the wife had to have a 40 foot diesel A. Then she finds out our favorite places in the mountains have a 35 foot limit, of coarse it is my fault, she picked the 10-2 EX CD SE dry bath Northern Lite over the 2500 10.4 Bigfoot I do not know all the why's, the Bigfoot has a much nicer layout and hands down a better dry bath and it was 4K cheaper the only extra the Northern Lite had that the Bigfoot did not come stock with was one solar panel. And I told her the Bigfoot is already wired for solar. (for 4K I could have put 400 watts or more on the Bigfoot) Then she told me but the Northern Lite has a slide out pantry. Ahh, but the wife is happy , I am very sincere in saying thank you to all of you that helped me with my truck camper questions and solving some problems. Hope I can some day return the kindness and generosity of your time that you took to answer and help me thank you, thank you

RE: one more time I need some help

Thank all of you for your help this was a big decision for us, everyone has been courteous and very helpful. regardless of my mistakes in typing or maybe even asking the same thing twice, so again a big thank you from a southern gentleman who does not have a convenient memory. I always remember those that help me or those that gave a kind word of encouragement. To all of you I hope to someday be of help to you

RE: one more time I need some help

Sorry the dealer is closed today and we have to leave by 10 PM tonight sorry about the other thread I have been dealing with more than just a new camper, all the contractors in our area have work booked up for in some cases a couple years I have been rebuilding my house by myself after a fire so keeping up with things has been hard. the only part of our home that was not damaged in the fire was one bedroom it has been a floor joist up rebuild I had my son help one week end with some heavy cabinets30 years ago no big deal now with a 4 level back fusion one kidney, replaced hip, and two bad elbows to say the least I have been busy. And Farm Bureau was no help and under bid everything. No excuse I k now but I have been busy we just needed some time off, I have been so busy with the house we no longer have cows and we do not let people board horses any more so that was a income loss not complaining I should be through by April

one more time I need some help

I am leaving tonight to pick up a new truck camper Monday morning it is a Northern Lite 10-2EX CD se dry bath I want to put the largest battery possible in the battery boxes. Do any Northern Lite owners know the dimensions of the opening where the batteries are contained. I have a friend who owns a store and he carries a group of batteries that are AGM and contain new lead not recycled lead they are built to military specs. the price is great FREE I did him a solid favor once and he never forgot. Ton pick up the camper is about a 7 hour drive and we would like to go to a national park on the way home, so I need to pick up the batteries today before we leave thank you for all your help
