RE: Auxiliary fuel tank in front of the slide in camper

Technically, it sounds like it can be done, although it will look a bit "off". The 815 is a fairly lightweight camper that can be carried safely on a short bed, AFAIK. And your long bed dually truck should have no problems to carry it that far back. You might set yourself up for a catastrophic outcome if you ever get rear-ended in that setup, though. Other people with more experience with aux tanks may chime in with a more reasoned opinion.

RE: Fast Gun issue?

+1 I have been using them like this since 2009. Ensure that they are mounted with gravity pulling the nut into the closed position.

Thank You! Looks like a very nice trip. And a Happy New Year!

RE: Camper basically chopped in half by tree

That was a narrow shave. They can celebrate a new birthday now every year.

RE: IVECO Daily at Speed

Fun fact: For trucks with a GVWR over 3500 kgs / 7700 lbs, the speed limit in Germany and the neighboring countries is 80 kph / 50 mph. This is enforced by a speed limiter which limits top speed around 90 kph. The dual rear wheels are usually indicative of an elevated GVWR, but it appears you can buy a DRW Daily right at 3500 kgs GVWR, with a limiter at 160 kph / 100 mph.

RE: Wolf Creek/Arctic Fox heater hose mod

Very nice! One word of caution, though: it looks like the hoses considerably reduce the available cross section of the outlets. The operation manual of the furnace specifies a minimal discharge requirement that needs to be fulfilled for safe and reliable operation. I don't know which furnace you have. This document gives the minimum discharge requirements for a number of Dometic furnaces - see pages 10/11:

RE: 3500 CC Running boards?

The tie downs are under the bed floor. If your running boards do not extend beyond the rear edge of the cab, you should be fine. Here is a picture of our rig. Not a CC, not a Ram, and not a 2022, but you get the idea. OEM running boards.

RE: range hood exhaust fan?

When you start disassembly, watch for razor sharp edges inside the range hood. Don't ask me how I know...

RE: 2003 Lance 845 rear bumper damaged

Pictures would be useful. If you do not know how to post pictures, you can try this link and follow instructions there. I am not familiar with the 845, but I worked on some wood rot in the back of my 915 in 2009. So maybe my experience has some value for you. Here is a picture: What I found at the time was that I would have needed to remove the gray water tank in order to remove the rear bumper. The tank was held up by straps, so that would have been easy. But I would have needed to cut and reconnect the inlet/outlet pipes. Removal of the bumper itself would have been simple after that, just remove a number of bolts. Eventually I left it in place and worked around it. Again, that was a 915, not an 845.

RE: bad luck for this family

Sounds like they had a "quality experience"...

RE: waterfilter for eagle cap 1165

OK, I see. This makes more sense.

RE: waterfilter for eagle cap 1165

I can not make much of your description. The cut line may just as well be the one you use for winterizing with pink antifreeze, or it may not be. What is the "main valve"? Does the water system work at all? If not, what is not working? I may be ignorant of the systems in an eagle cap, but in the campers I have seen, the only filter was a simple mesh filter next to the pump. A picture or three may help with understanding. If you don't know how to post one, go to this link and follow instructions there:

RE: Jack leg help - Happi jac

Your analysis re. controller or main board sounds logical. Does the main board have fuses that you can check? Is there a way you could swap controllers with someone else for testing?

RE: Anyone ever mounted a FoxWing batwing 270 to pop-up camper?

You might contact Bundutec and get their advice on their own product ( After all, they make popup campers as well, so they might know.

RE: Heki 2 Skylight Inner Frame Failure

Not sure what material Heki uses for the frame ... some plastics are very difficult to bond. We have a Heki in our camper, and the plastic "feels" like it can be glued with the right glue. I would double it up with an overlapping strip of ABS plastic or Aluminum (or something else that will adhere well) from the back side. Degrease and clean the surfaces well and sand with 180, 240 or 320 sandpaper to make the glue adhere well. Use clothespins or similar to keep everything together until dry. Can't really recommend a glue from here, we have different brand names here in Europe. I would use a good epoxy glue. No cyanacrylates, they bond really well but don't like long term exposure to moisture.

RE: Potential Pop-Up TC.....Thoughts on a Hallmark Guanella?

Well... like most (all?) of their campers, the Guanella is probably named after some landmark feature in their area. In this case, the camper was likely named after Guanella Pass (, which "was named in 1953 for Byron Guanella, a road supervisor and commissioner in Clear Creek County for nearly 50 years."

Thanks for sharing! Sounds like a great trip, and a lot of good decisions. Happy travels!

RE: Does anyone else have a 1988 Lance LS4000 9.4 Squire?

Lance ( -> Owners) has brochures and manuals available for download dating back to 1993 ... there will likely be similarities to your '88.
