RE: RAM 3500 Auto Level Rear Suspension

That was my concern work2much, that the stiffness the leafs provided was a good thing in this case, aiding in the sway carrying a TC. I am sure the ride is much better with the TC off the truck though.....

RAM 3500 Auto Level Rear Suspension

I currently haul an Eagle Cap 950 on a 2013 RAM with the traditional leaf rear end. Has anyone put their TC on the optional Auto Level Rear Suspension? I can see the benefits, but I can also imagine some not so good outcomes of such an option. Thoughts? Thanks, Mr. E

RE: Interesting delam issue - revised 6-24, more pics

I posted here a few years back about the very same problem I had with my 2013 Eagle Cap single slide 950. The camper at the time was still under warranty so it had to go back to the factory in Yakima, WA where they completely removed the front cap and replaced it with another one. I've had other major out of warranty work done at the factory and they do great work at a reasonable price. I would not trust anyone else to work on it. PM me if you have any further questions. Mr. E

RE: TC heading to Adventurer LP in Yakima WA for Repairs

I will deal with Brad Boyle, the gentleman that assisted with my first repairs. He made things right, granted it was under warranty, so I hope the good relationship continues. Cheers, Eric

TC heading to Adventurer LP in Yakima WA for Repairs

My 2013 Eagle Cap 950 is heading back up to the Yakima factory to look into a slide issue. I noticed one side of the floor nearest the slide was rising and when I took it off the truck and on it's jacks the floor would drop. We are taking a distance of probably 1/2". The other day I noticed it had pushed out the rear wing (the same side the slide is on) when I retracted the slide. They of course say they can fix anything, something definitely let loose in the framing. This camper has been to the factory once before to take care of an entire front cap that delaminated during the first year of ownership, they fixed it under warranty. I baby this rig, can't believe it's tearing itself apart like this....oh wait, yes I can..... I look forward to what this bill will be.

RE: Maxtrax MK2 the best? Should I get orange? Prices

I've been waiting to pull the cord on this kind of product as well. The brand Maxsa makes a XL version of these type of traction mats that are actually wide enough to roll a set of dually's on. Maxsa Escaper Buddy XL

RE: High wind and the truck camper

80 mph winds did this camper was at the lowest it could go just on jacks no a frames now I put it on blocks and use the jacks just touching the ground https://i.imgur.com/CC6sWMyl.jpg https://i.imgur.com/iVNrD6rl.jpg Dave Those Livin' Lite Aluminum Campers are MUCH lighter than our traditionally made campers. I am sure that lighter weight had a lot to do with it tipping over.

Camping Apps/Websites

I put together a document that lists all the IOS apps and websites that I an others use to find campgrounds around the country. I've also included other apps that assist in weather/fuel/wind forecasts. Some of these are not free, but you get what you pay for. What most folks don't realize, that the free apps steal your data by constantly fetching adds support the app. Not good if you don't have unlimited data. Camping Resources

RE: Almost bought an F450. Inner payload monitor said NO

I agree with Bedlam, 450 for hauling. If you want to carry more then jump to a 550.

RE: Apps

I got the link to work, I turned the Pages doc into a PDF and that seemed to do the trick.

RE: Apps

Hi, Here is a document I made up listing all the apps and websites that can be used to find campsites/dumps/weather info. I use them all!! Note: all the apps listed work with my iPhone, I don't know if they are also available for Android. Cheers, Eric Camping Apps I think I fixed the link, it had to be a PDF file, Pages just wouldn't work.

RE: Apps

Eric..You can't directly attach document here-however if uploaded 'somewhere' you could supply link to it. One way, if you have google account you could upload to to google drive, make it public and supply link. Thanks so much, I will do that now!

RE: Apps

Hi, I have a document complete with hyperlinks to many apps and websites that help find campgrounds. How do you attach a document? I've attached many photos and websites, but never a document before. Thanks, Eric

RE: 3500 diesel dually in Baja Mexico?

Baja Nomad Forum The Nomad Forum is where you will find some definitive info on the low sulfur diesel question. There is a member that regularly tests the diesel up and down the peninsula.

RE: 100% Silicone vs Dicor

I am removing the ProFlex as it got hard and did not stick, so I will not be using that product again. I just ordered some Manus-Bond 75AM from Amazon and will give that a go. The Manus-Bond 75AM went on like a champ and looks great. I like to tape off the area that I am caulking with painters tape, apply the caulk, then smooth with a finger dipped in soapy water or a finger sprayed with Windex. Pull away the painters tape and you have a professional looking job.

RE: Dually valve stem extenders; which one?

These work great on my rear dually. I actually put them all around as they put a good seal on the valve stem itself and no more caps to deal with. Alligator V2B Valve Stem Cap

RE: Hitch Extenders

I use the same set-up with the Curt model. Make sure to use some heavy duty chains and turnbuckle to get things nice and tight. The 2/5" receiver on the RAM is more than enough to take care of business. Just don't exceed the limits listed on the extension and you golden. My chain looks like this: https://i.imgur.com/e9qfMqcl.jpg

RE: 100% Silicone vs Dicor

I ended up purchasing the currently recommended caulk/sealant that the OEM is using on my truck camper, Manus-Bond 75AM. My method to make my caulking to look factory is to use blue painters tape to outline EXACTLY where I want the caulk to be. I run a very small bead in that space then spread it out with my wet finger. After a few minutes I pull the tape and WOW, looks great. Thanks for your input all!

RE: Is side awning worth it?

I've had a side awning on a previous TC but decided that the TC itself, other than high noon provided enough shade if you positioned it correctly. I do recommend highly the rear awning, great for many reasons. The biggest improvement for interior cooling and privacy is the installation of individual window awnings. They give you shade during the day and some privacy as well.
