COG

2006 Toyota Tundra SR5 Double cab. With 4WheelCamper 'Hawk' slide in pop-up. How do I figure COG vertically as well as fore-aft. Other forums have mentioned Vertical COG may cause sway.. Thanks

RE: Why does my Truck Camper list toward the driver side

Eric & others of this thought line. Original owner ~ worked at Toyota dealership 27 years ~ All maintenance ~ No accidents.I do not recall saying"..2-3 inches..." most about 1-2" ~ all air gone from driver side air bag. This camper 'lives' on the truck ~ do not have the means or desire to remove it. Right now out in the back yard sorting the duplicates & tossing the strays. May be a little over packing moving down from class A. Rearranging storage ~ more heavy stuff on Passenger side. Trying to get his weight down. Then will evaluate again. Thanks all for all considerations mentioned. Kate

RE: Why does my Truck Camper list toward the driver side

jimh425 ~ Thanks for answering. Makes it seem a little more 'normal'. The 'tire' guys always put equal amounts of air in the pods. Is it OK to put a little more air in driver side and a little less in passenger to level out ?? OR is that a NO NO. Gonna weigh him tomorrow with a 'Mock' travel load .maybe can move stuff around ~HAHA ~ he ain't very big. Take Care ~~ K

RE: Why does my Truck Camper list toward the driver side

That is becoming pretty much my thoughts. Have had 'shells' on it before but did not notice any 'slant'. This little bugger has 'wings' that stick out a few inches past the truck sides and try to stick me in the face every time I walk by. Duck under. know of any cure. Shocks ?? Tire shop put on second Air pod today and aired them both up to 50# ~ That sure didn't help. Still a little over an inch higher on passenger side. Can the 'tilt' be helped by putting less air on Passenger side to equalize. Not sure these tire shop boys know much about campers. Thanks for your time. ~~ K

Why does my Truck Camper list toward the driver side

Of All the things I've ever lost ~ I miss my Mind the MOST ~~ Need help or a swift kick in the .... Have a 2006 Toyota Tundra double cab. SR5, 4.7 gas ~ 6'6" bed ~ spray in bedliner. ~~~~ Bought 2017 4WheelCamper "Hawk" Shell Dec. 18,2017 No 110v ~ no water ~ no potty ~ no etc,etc, Pretty much nekkid, Camper 'rests' on side to side 1x4's fore & aft of wheel wells rear most 7" in from rear end of camper. 1/4" between camper sides and tail gate opening.. 1 hand thickness camper bottom and floor of truck Camper sides ride about 1' above sidewalls bed of truck. Had BF Goodrich ~ All Terrain lt625/70r16 "E" Apr/2018 ~ Firestone RideRiteAirBag pkg installed Oct 2017 Only taken on a few trips as Work in Progress. built side to side bed platform below cab/camper window, Movable Storage under, Campsite leveled as needed with wood blocks ~ never a problem, Carry water bottles ~~ Use Thetford 135 Feb this year. OK Earlier this year noticed camper 'listing' toward driver side. Unit is usually parked in backyard. OK OK Know backyard not FLAT & Level ~ BUT Driver side rear of camper 1-2 inches lower than Passenger side. Measuring from bottom of 'Jack' bracket to ground. Air bag a little low on that side. Pumped up to 30# ea waited few days down again. Took back tire shop a couple pf times ~ new lines. Still not good ~ Put new 'pod on driver side. WAITING. A little low but could be the yard. Second 'pod'put on passenger side today. Both air pods aired up to 50#. No matter where I put it ~ Which way I face it driver side 1 1/2' low Also at the last measures RT,RR., turnbuckle a little loose. ~ NEVER ~ Loose before ~~ Connected or coincidence WHat do I measure now. Is this normal. Is this Usable?? Can it be possible that the camper was heavy enough on the driver side with Batteries;Propane ~Furnace~~to cause bed to be lower on that side. Never noticed a side to side difference until after camper in stalled. Never had 'wings' I had to duck under before . HELP. If can't be helpful ~~ Please be Kind. Thanks ~~ K

RE: Black tank splash shield problem

If NOT really full before using ~ do your thing ~ hold pedal down 1/2 way (lets water in none out)~ fill to top with water ~~ FLUSH HOLD PEDAL 1/2 WAY DOWN ~ LETS WATER IN TO FILL TANK> Then all the way down to flush all the water at once IF THAT DOES NOT WORK USE A BUCKET TO FILL THE BOWL
