RE: Occasional Winter Camping??

Oh man, some of you guys are funny as hell! I'll stick to my original common sense thought of keeping winterized, running the heater while sleeping, bottled water and call it good! Solar set up will charge batteries back up during the day. (Electric heater? Keep burners on? Seriously? Yikes.)

Occasional Winter Camping??

I'm newer to truck camping so bear with me. I have a Palomino HS-8801, certainly not designed for winter camping but WHAT IF...I wanted to take it up to the ski resort for a night (or wherever). I'm assuming I'd keep it winterized and simply run the propane to stay warm for the night. Just bring my own fresh toilet/plumbing/water use. Agree? Also, probably a stupid question but you would only turn on the heater when you are with the unit, you wouldn't want to keep it on low during the day. I'm thinking it is not safe, or even if it was I'd suck the tank dry on a super cold day. Any thoughts? Thanks in advance!

RE: First big trip - Newbie questions

It's air. I can see it in the filter since it clear plastic. It's trying to clear it but can't. I don't know how to fix it. Super frustrating.

RE: First big trip - Newbie questions

Okay, trouble in paradise. Brand spanking new camper and all of a sudden my water pump isn't working! I've only used it a couple times and it's been perfect. Do I have air in the system? How to get that thing primed again?? Assuming that is what the problem is BRAND NEW!! HELP!

RE: First big trip - Newbie questions

Thanks all. No boondocking on this one, I think I'll go about half full. Cheers.

First big trip - Newbie questions

Hello - First (big) road trip using my 2022 Palomino HS 8801 truck camper. Do you recommend filling, or at least putting some fresh water in prior to the trip? I'll be on the highway primarily and will likely be stopping at a campground with hookups but you never know. Figure best to have some in there. I know weight is always an issue. Also, with the black tank set up, should I run some water in there before adding the deodorant? I'm sure I'll have a million other little questions.

RE: Lowering / raising with manual jacks

Never had manual jacks, but the ability to lift or lower one end or one side (2 jacks at a time) is invaluable in keeping it stable (and quicker, lol). If you can employ a wife/helper etc and have 2 drills or hand cranks or whatever, it would be preferable IMO. Strange you could get it to pick a front leg, but good, I mean great, as it's pretty well balanced for loading (most TC's will 3 leg and pick a rear leg no problem, but most wont float a front leg due to center of gravity) Idk where to find jacks, but good luck in your search and happy camping with your new camper! To clarify, it is my rear jack(s) that will lift off the ground, not front. Thanks.

RE: Lowering / raising with manual jacks

Thanks monkey44. I have the connector but my drill may need to be upgraded. It quits once things get really heavy. Was more concerned about the lifting leg so thanks for the comment.

Lowering / raising with manual jacks

Just bought a 2022 Palomino HS 8801 for my 2015 RAM 2500. (Added Timbren bump stops but that is a different topic). Love it so far, but one thing I am absolutely HATING is that it did not ship with electric jacks. It is pre wired for them and should have but with supply chain issues they are VERY hard to find. I've taken it off and put it back on once for practice. Looking for advice, with safety first and foremost, on technique. I raised (and lowered) each jack no more than 4" at a time and used my level to make sure things were steady. Kept the front a bit higher at all times. One of the legs would come completely off the ground each time I did this. Is that alright? I could probably adjust each jack by like an inch or less to avoid this but that would take FOREVER! Gotta say, I was nervous getting that thing high enough to load on the truck! I don't care what the weight rating is on those jacks it is sketchy. Thanks for any thoughts. Oh, and if you know of any electric jacks available let me know ASAP! Can't get them anywhere.
