RE: Solar panel

https://1drv.ms/u/s!Av3MLjR7Oj5kj9cf3KUPDTLPj--h4g I really hate that you can't attach files, but that is a link to see the solar on top of my 1191. Used superstruts.

RE: Rubber roof confusion

I don't think you will like that decision in another year, I would just pull it all up and put down new on the whole roof, even if you are looking at having it 5 years it will help with resale as well.

RE: Rubber roof confusion

My old Shadow Cruiser came with EPDM so that is what I put back down. Here is my old thread on fixing mine: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/27761327/srt/pa/pging/1/page/1

RE: SUP / surfboard / gear rack ideas

I put my surfboards inside while traveling. I am building a holder for them for the side of the truck while I am on the beach. Something like this: https://www.pinterest.com/pin/436638126355262040 My roof racks are already full of solar panels :)

RE: RVTrader No Response

FB Marketplace is taking over CL, makes it harder for the scammers to hide on FB. I will still dual list stuff on CL and FB marketplace but pretty soon I will probably just do FB as much as I hate it.

RE: Interesting Pismo Beach Trip / Report

Wow that looks like the wild wild west of beach camping. Can't take anything but registered 4x4 trucks out on our beaches. What tires did you go with on your rig?

RE: Best thing to use under jacks while unloading on grass

Btw, I got the Camco ones after getting tired of hauling the wood blocks around, plus the wood blocks get warped over time. The Camco ones lock in to each other and fit in a small place for storage, that was a huge plus for me.

RE: Thanks!

Speaking of dually brackets, what grease do you use? Seems like I am always fighting mine up and down, the red grease I use never stays for long.

RE: Best thing to use under jacks while unloading on grass

Camco RV Stabilizing Jack Pads, Helps Prevent Jacks From Sinking, 6.5 Inch x 9 Inch Pad - 4 pack (44595) Works great for me, search amazon.

RE: Truck build out for

450 all day long. With the 19.5's and widetrack front end with bigger brakes they are a beast with the 6.7.

RE: Flat tire on SW Truck while carrying a TC?

I have had 2 flats while driving the 250 srw, both were due to tire stem issues while I was airing the tires back up. Changing the tire wasn't hard, just make sure you carry a big bottle jack under the back seat and have a way to get the spare down and it isn't bad. I have changed both the front and rear and I used the camper jacks to help change the rear, left the turnbuckles on and just put enough weight on the camper jacks to help me raise the truck with the bottle jack. If your prepared it isn't that bad.

RE: Bye Bye DuraMax

How are the newer Ford aluminum superduty's holding up to the salt?

RE: Silverado 3500 DRW tire

I am looking to replace my stock Michelin 235/80/17 a/t Ltx tires. I want something that can be used on the beach with heavy camper also any recommendations. How many miles did you get from your Michelins? I am in the same boat looking for new tires for my f350 DRW and I air down for sand as well. Would love to find one that only goes to 65psi like the Nittos that I have on my f250. Makes life easier at the air pump station.

RE: Rear springs and overloads for '99--07 F350

Nice, I might be doing the same for my 2002 CC f350 DRW I just got for my 1191. I was going to try lower stabil loads and carry over my airbags from the 2000 f250 to see how that does, also carry over the rancho 9000's and see if I can carry over the sway bar as well. The truck had carried a TC at some point in its life, still had the happijack buttons on the back bumper. I hear yah on the 7.3 prices being outrageous, I almost bought a 6.0 but saw this 7.3 and jumped on it, getting used to driving a stick again. The Low gear is going to come in handy.

RE: Shocks

I did 9000's all around on my SRW and I am happy, took a lot of the porpoising out on the highway. Will buy them again for my DRW upgrade. I do a lot of 4x4 with my camper on and setting them to 9 on the rear and 6 on the front helped a lot there as well.

RE: Picking up New 990 Today

I am looking at getting a stock 2005 F350 longbed DRW to haul my 1191, what did you do to your rear suspension? I was hoping to be able to switch my rancho 9000's from my f250 but no such luck, different setup. I hope to be able to switch my airbags over. Well versed on bulletproofing, that will come down the road.

Do you have a generator?

RE: FW capacity

I boondock all the time, I carry a 30 gallon FW tank on my roof.

RE: How bad is this?

I would take and put it on a good size dual wheel car trailer and winch it up to the front if you can find a good attachment point. I would then strip it of everything you can sell and take the rest to the dump.

RE: Trickle charge on truck's 2 batteries...?

Search Amazon for: Optima Digital 400 12V Performance Maintainer and Battery Charger - 150-40008 I love that charger, it has brought back several batteries for me, I have friends give me dead batteries and I use that on them and now have a battery stockpile.
