RE: onan 2500 lp generator

Mine is much older. Did you prime it? Also, are you sure the propane is on? You might try to light the stove to make sure you have propane.

Thanks for posting the solution.

RE: Is changing to a quieter AC worth it?

I say no.

RE: Occasional Winter Camping??

I suggest warming up, and then turn the temps down to 50 or so. In the AM, turn the heat back up to warm up. We lined our cabinets, windows, skylights/vents, and under our bed with Reflectix. You can flush with RV antifreeze if needed. I don’t think there is any reason to keep the heat running while you are out skiing. However, there are some ski areas that actually have RV hookups. In that case, buy a small electric heater.

RE: New Superduty gas engine for 2023.

That was a waste of a click. It "could" be with no details other than it might be a 6.8 that doesn't exist yet.

RE: Flatbed Camper

There have been a few brands that came on the market and disappeared. Let's see if this one makes more than a year or two.

RE: Recaulking the camper

If you have time, it won't hurt anything to recaulk. It will just give you a bit more time before leaks which could be good. You might not have time next year or the next to do it.

RE: Tie Down Angle Best Practice

One other thought, it might also be useful to find out from Torklift what difference it makes in how to tighten the Fast Guns based on angle/length of the Fast Guns.

RE: Tie Down Angle Best Practice

I would ask Arctic Fox if that is what you are hauling.

RE: Apple car play or XM radio

I had XM for a while, but I didn't feel it was worth a subscription. It also didn't work in a tree canopy for me. I don't know if they are better now. I also like local radio stations when available, but there are a lot of places I drive that have no reception. For those, I download Amazon Music playlists. It comes with Amazon Prime, so it's no extra expense. Fwiw, I've found that OEM Ford Radio reception of AM/FM is better than aftermarket radios. YMMV.

Congrats. Welcome to the slide world.

RE: DC to DC charger

Solar availability varies a lot by area. In Western WA/OR, it’s basically unavailable for for most hours for months. ;) Solar doesn’t work very well in snow or heavy rain either. It’s a good idea to have a DC charger for backup assuming you have the money to spend. Charging is separate from running an inverter. So, yes, you can use a charger and also an inverter.

RE: Heki 2 Skylight outer hinges

Seems like your install must have been bad or the sun is really beating up on yours. That’s a lot of issues. Fwiw, I have the same model and had one latch go bad in 17 years. I think I got mine from Dometic Europe. It’s been a long time (about 10 years) since that failure.

RE: Cirrus 820 mounted on GMC

Cirrus site says the 820 height is 9’8”. I think you are going to be very close. I’d also make sure the 12 door is really 12 from bottom of the door open to floor. If it is just a little off on adjustment, you could lose a few inches.

RE: Might sell the F450 and go F550 with liquid springs

It does not have them yet. Will have lower and upper boxes, being custom built by Stablecamper. Also gonna had forged aluminum wheels and 35” tall tires. Since you are going 35s, have you thought about Super Singles and possibly going even larger? Fwiw, even my 225s are 33, so 35s just equate to 245s or so.

RE: 19.5 Hankook DH35 vs XDS2

I aged both sets of mine out at 5-6 years, but I do that for regular tires as well. It depends on how they are looking, and how close Winter is. I used to run Hankook DH01s. I now run Toyo M655s. I feel they are a much better riding tire than the Hankooks. It was noticeable on the first drive which was empty. Also, the fronts wear better compared to Hankooks. However, I did like the Hankooks enough to put them on my F450 after running them on a F350 SRW for several years. Obviously, the Toyo tires cost a lot more, so maybe they should be better. ;)

RE: Might sell the F450 and go F550 with liquid springs

I'm glad someone likes adaptive cruise. I don't personally get that close to other vehicles when I carry my truck camper or tow. I wonder how well it adapts for the heavier load when it applies brakes.

RE: The Ghost

I'm glad you had a great trip.

RE: Back to truck campers

My combination handles well. Lots of things could be impacting the sway including being overloaded, not enough air in the tires, tires not rated high enough, worn suspension parts, etc. Describe your rig and what have you tried to fix your sway issues. It's possible for all types of RVs to handle poorly or good.

RE: Smaller or more minimalist truck camper

Look at Capri Campers.
