RE: Are one ton trucks classified as commercial in some states?

This is not the place to get that info. Lots of bad info regarding this subject. Please see your state's motor vehicle dept and or highway patrol.

RE: LED Replacement bulbs high moisture environment survival

I've used these and have good luck in all areas of the TC and trailer. https://www.superbrightleds.com/cat/rv-led-lights/?campaign=BING%20-%20RV%20Lighting&adgroup=RV%20%26%20Camper&msclkid=35fe6186f7fd1216aa2e01df1fff317d&utm_source=bing&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=BING%20-%20RV%20Lighting&utm_term=rv%20lights&utm_content=RV%20%26%20Camper This^^ I buy all my LED's and lighting stuff from them. Going on 7 years since my first purchase. Installed everything from curbside lighting for the camper to interior and exterior lighting on all my vehicles. Not a single failure compared to the cheap, China Ebay and Amazon LED's which I purchased about the same time. All those either completely or partially failed within 6 mos to a couple years. Don't bother with cheapo stuff. I also used Phillips and Sylvania brand LEDS's for both the reading lights in the camper and for turn, tail and brake lights on some other vehicles. No complaints, but they are pricier.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yes pretty sure they are carpeted full length, meeting up with him manana will check it out!!! The only thing holding me back from buying one is non bunk option My BIL picked up his WC850 today and is stoked, thinking of a WC reunion at Lake Powell in May ;) https://i.imgur.com/pndrD0vl.jpg Nice. Would this be a vessel trip to powell or just campers?

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Click below for a walk through of the interior, Video walk thru clicky Yeah those graphics are over the top especially the Huge wolf head, but it definitely is unique!! Reminds me of some kind of space ship lol. Thanks, man. Really digging the layout. Wife loves it, too. Who knows. Might find our way into one in the next couple years.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Yeah, the interior layout looks awesome. Knowing how the tanks are positioned on a similar size AF, I'd say the batteries and hot water location just offset the gray and black tanks. Tanks now in front and batteries and hot water in back. If anything, gray/black tanks near the front, if that's the case, would put more weight forward of the axle when they're full, then 2 batteries do. Bottom line it's a TC, it's heavy, go have fun! Where's the propane bottles hiding though? I looked at a couple other pics and don't see a propane compartment on either side. Only drawback, IMO is it has a smaller fresh water tank than comparable AF units. Packing as much fresh water as possible is a priority for me for camping without hookups. Well, that's the thing. It's no AF. WC's are way off from AFs capacities. BTW, who drives any long distance with their dump tanks full? I alwaYs run empty. Makes no sense to lug all that disposable weight around.

RE: Wolf Creek 890

Nice. Saw this on Mike's website. I like the layout except batteries and water heater are behind the axle...meh. The graphics are too much, IMO. I'd probably buy one, just not now. Demand is through the roof and we know quality control has been suffering across the manufacturers. Congrats to your friend. Should be lots of fun. If you get a chance at some point, post up some pics of the interior.

RE: New Cooper tires behavior

Not 19.5's but I bought some Cooper Evolution 295/70/18 M/T's tires last summer. Load cap: 4080lbs. I bought them due to the higher weight and to put me at ease. LoL Put about 1K miles on them from SoCal to Lake Powell. White knuckled ride the entire time, to and from. They felt as if they were walking around. Couldn't drive any faster than 60ish mph. 65+ and they became very mushy-feeling is how I would describe it. They wandered and pushed around a lot when correcting the wheel. If I over-corrected, they would get squirrelly and wander almost into the next lane. Never stable, nor comfortable unless driving well under 60mph. I didn't feel in control. Not sure if it was because they were new or because the aggressive tread lugs or the taller sidewall. My wife observed me the whole time saying when we got back home that she never saw me hold so tightly to the wheel as did with these new tires. Did I not give them enough time to break-in? Replaced them with Cooper ATP's when we returned home. I really wanted to like them as they were great in sand, just not on the hwy, loaded. Unloaded, with the camper off, they were fine.

RE: Propane tank level monitor

Same here. Especially with the auto changeover valve. Hard to know how much you have.

RE: Solution to Trash Left Behind!

It's a matter of character and good behavior. People have lost both or were never taught either to begin with. No matter how many fines and regulations are put in place, it doesn't change the mentality and thinking of these slobs. Look at the chaos currently reigning across the cities of America. Some people are just disgusting.

RE: Ford 7.3 gas burner mpg hauling TC

If it does hurt that much (to a persons pocket book) they probably shouldn't be RVing in the first place. This is the attitude of a someone who clearly lives where fuel is somewhat affordable or is in an income bracket far above us plebes. Either way, it comes off as bit snotty and stuck up. Come to CA. I guarantee your tune will change. Fuel is a big part of the expense, if not the biggest for me.

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Installed 1,100 lb. (550 per side) Hellwig helper springs and new u bolts. Raised the height a little less than 2". I'm hoping I won't need to engage the lower stable loads anymore with the camper. Be nice to just let the springs work without all the band aid devices. So far, unloaded, it rides better than it ever has. I didn't buy the truck new so I have no reference, but it feels like a normal suspension should. Not too bad for $79. I shall see. https://i.imgur.com/IkxTUI1l.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image.

RE: Aftermarket wheels

I was talking in general, out on the road or online. Also, How do you know what I've seen here? LoL Ridiculous statement. I'm glad you have vision wheels and not big ol tires. Good for you.

HaHa True. More money than brains down here.

RE: Aftermarket wheels

I see guys with lifted trucks running aftermarket, lug-centric, cast wheels and big ol tires with an Arctic Fox and I think to myself...Yeah, it looks cool, but there's no way that high centered mass lumbering down a hwy would remain upright should a wheel failure occur. I just don't get it. Yet lots of fellow TC'ers seem to applaud it.

RE: Repairing soft floor in my wolf creek

The wife and I were sitting in the camper just now having this discussion. The cabinet door and the knee wall doors will both have clearance issues when it comes to laying down wood. Even 3/8 will be a challenge. Short of dropping the fresh tank, working from below to install some support, I don't see a way around it. We came to the same conclusion: Too much work. Live with soft floor until it really needs repaired.
