RE: step solutions

Yah, use the GlowSteps and luv'em. you can ADD steps, up to six I believe and they are adjustable to the ground. Compacts easily and is critical for WalMart (Markets) stops... They are easy to take off too. make sure you get the Locks with it, they are stronger and keeps them from wandering off. Alignment: I put mine offset a little to allow for opening the door while on them instead of right in front of it, so plan accordingly if you can.https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/TiEWkfNOxXxwUdtgPbT-mAMNtP-JjfYy5Eoxgxw7zh9TEwK_nJhrfjLgPeMJIdlQMrdf4kWdqQ9LCqdaRpdARFwUtNT2mQDetsANoaYhYplByZnXmMwxi9NbT31z9nMZ2WUp9qmpWzMRsnup-6Q2D5X6IQ4cp8_EnuiOtyKVRtXV4OIHDA4o-hngziCS8MegOnBds4T3Plnm0DIfMB5cmN2SJ-Xlb7FMFgC0dqHdPwqyvQCnU5Xt7D6REJn3YxnvB9YAFGz3NQgFfdtw4P1J4LrPSY5bRy24GLREqrwKeLtdxYlCQQdeopcxopLkYLV3537L3rXCXqyTwMFCZLVE2HcSlmHqG-dDqa7wN1NZntmGbpsQ7NzF7GyEXcwDSKMuQ_c7UAKBo7Vjb6TpGPtjVNlbdfoc_UvB4BUNL3NmbHPGy_YOYEmNFjUgWBrf9hZt4OJOhGj1A7IMaB_tird-_MZlA8n2G9s-jOnh-tcdtuP3ps9gm2cly0iAB3hSl5-PSM8nysNza5SHUVxPFWJb1x9I3gcxWiE2P9QjShlNB5UB-VKc82kRZrCEMAnRSDjc8AX2_6829aIaNt6LqMBlsvwP2hML5gcb5SlU5fjLf4Q75fpm2vL99Lms4Oul1T_ux9GCgTWr51H_ZIV66PQfPdsE7bqZ2sazrI6gbUgeIpi2Ey5_oJi9oapYTx82qqaCwarIvgBHR_tg2D70oMr9fSF4BOen_58juqsyJLzkPrmtDMxswg=w612-h814-no I string a set of lights for night time ease of seeing them which helps..

RE: Anyone ever try the Traction pads for a Truck Camper

Yep, looking at them too, on the Amz Wish list.. I eventually plan on 6, for all tires or to run them end to end. Now, don't forget when you have to tow yourself out.. hehe as in nothing to attach tow rope to from winch... like a sand patch. You can bury something like 'Sand Anchor' but I'm thinking the Pull Pal.. also... It's tricky in trying to figure out just what works and what doesn't... So, matrix and the Pull Pal along with the winch are all on the list.. And here's why, Luckily, another truck camper was kind enough to 'Break from camp' and come to my rescue... I was lucky and am waiting to pay it forward... https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/3RxbRblZqsJQsjR-zQ1gQMihlGMyeAMVPNU5r_Tf6u4BB_MkwVD6Iff6bTfeHYViWee5r-ytwCT388HzSSXSfK78GV_nut6JmRVBVrYLpsorGHlri77bEm5VvUidKS0P3Nj_XZta3UJXsl1ZrF1-pkLtVi_pkb8BoBdG52ZOfS3QXReu9frvEZkDBL_Nc8T1w8yhSvjayALAQai_7ZNE5cK50VxidBSyJveb3SOVibg37mm_2if1Wz04Bg9I-NNKrSYRNn87Shvjbxlx1Qezk51zjGMwTgAuUDavTv3ROvZbBE-1BrJZDfHT4ANSRXhEIVjGZumKkk8QqiYHLD84INuPB-rWbUMG2Txv7clJ8Udmvq681mv3hKBgSkJGNgkP5o61UIkcgeUNZjA377BcylpBDQrtgBc3P54ENUdbQWvbG5GT-H4CwGFSGUDXf4eeAbpU09ybHS_4SFMG6WEAdav9vgCG4SwiJ9VzCaQET5Z-TE3bAE2quwnfyKtoeJJ7HqvUSi7Lpdsn5ig0Yb0tyOvPlzf_5CAkcRrTQEkZf378ric_a0KrifmWlHnvODBCQYyAPCzXIdUQqCFmVgC-H6g61N8CAuORierSDtuOCaxOm1aE_VTr2hcaVGaub0mbnrJZO5zdBWab_BhNHU8g6QHg9Y429PCH58TzcDTzP2h-FkmUPoRmk8pSWzBmFbxIphMooEZVdkqfvQHdXPYvi7SgyTjh9twWockEiQuAceyVm6Zo2g=w640-h480-no

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Yah, one that works with Trucks as noted, it more of a ceiling height issue.. I just all ahead and ask and if not they usually know of someone that does... Dealing with that and a 5500 presents it's own problems, but a 3500 should be ok... just call them and if hard press, you should be able to off load either at the campsite or at the dealer and reload when done... Have to call around.. Good luck..

RE: Moki Dugway, can I do it?

Yeah, should be fine... I'm in a 10' Flatbed and while I wasn't towing at the time, I was surprised at just how easy it was compared to all the warnings.. just have to make one or two WIDE turns.. and since your there, don't forget the lookout point at the time. There's a dirt road, fairly nice at the time, although washboarded.. but slow n easy will get you there.. a little tight turning around but should be ok...

RE: Factory Solar Question

Yeah, I've learned that whatever they tell you, double it.... I've the feeling that 'Solar' belongs in the 'Black Arts' category.. No person likes the previous set up... and they have their own idea of what YOU need and how to set it up...again, double it... especially the wiring gauge... You need to figure out what you need and future use possibilities... or you end up rewiring, moving things around or running outta room... So, while the good ones, installers etc, might be and probably are expensive, they're more likely to set it up with something you can use... Good luck, may the "Force be with you..." hehehhh, fun in the Sun as they say..

RE: Quick Connect for Extra Batteries in truck bed?

Yah, the plugs that I use, are quick connects.. Takes a little bit of Crimping to put the wires in depending upon gauge etc.. but they're kinda kewl as I use them for the additional 8 6vt in the white boxes... and when off loading just disconnect them... I also have a 10' extension so I can keep camper off loaded and truck by it's side and reconnect them.... Here's a link for the pics, you'll kinda have to browse thru them, but I had 2 batts each in the black boxes and swapped them out for 4 batts in the white boxes... Watch the gauge of wiring... I went from 2 gauge to 4/0000... It makes a big difference.. Hope that helps...

RE: Does my full-time TC plan seem reasonable?

Yah, depends... I've been 'Full time for coming up to 4 yrs and it's not a problem, but then it's just me and I'm used to living in small areas. The AF will certainly hold up, no problem there. You need to get in one, see how you feel for it.. might be a little cramped at first but you can easily adapt. Think of it like a ships cabin with less steps from the dining area to the kitchen.. heheh.. apx 3 steps... In fact?? you might even like it and keep it... For stuff that you don't/can't take with you, find a convenient storage locker and put stuff in there until you get a cabin/storeroom build... Bottom line, you'll be fine if you don't mind a little closer quarters... Good luck on the Land, Conconully, WA is pretty nice and inexpensive compared to other locations... Cheers..
