RE: Hey F550 5500 flatbed camper or custom bed owners:

You can use a horizontal pin connection or fastguns. The pins would require very accurate alignment. I stuck with fastguns but made custom tie-down brackets, powder coated them and utilized the existing bolt patterns. Look through their gallery and identify how many use Fastguns. Let me know and I can send you pics

RE: HOST Yukon Dump Valve Location

Sounds like the method you are doing would need to be done at your own FHU site as you would not want to take that much time at a more public dump station that might have a line.. Totally agree! I would use the wand at home after dumping as an internal wash and leave that diluted fluid in the tank until the next trip.

RE: HOST Yukon Dump Valve Location

Nice quote...I saw her comments today. I can understand why Host wants a level tank to dump. The fluids would help move the solids and not be like a table cloth trick with the dishes still in their place. Maybe more attention to having some clean water in the tank before using? I have used a wand before with success, and also use a 10" clear extension while dumping sometimes paired with a Flush King attachment. In these times, if you don't want your Host for any reason, there are buyers in line.

RE: Hey F550 5500 flatbed camper or custom bed owners:

This was finished in Oct of 2017. I would explore the tie-down options. I had them make the frame mounts with removable extension and it works fine with our new Mammoth. You can PM me with any questions- My Douglass utility body

RE: West Coast Jamboree 2022, Who is Interested?

We're still planning on it. Maybe see some of you at the AZ rally next month?

RE: Norcold 9.7 (10) cu ft 12 volt compressor fridge?

30 AH is a 20 hr draw from a room temp fridge to a #4 set program. Un-scientific but it was not impacted by any other heavy usage items other than parasitic draws. Last night, I uncovered the camper, turned on the battery switch and pleasantly surprised to find a full charge. Turned on the fridge. No sun today, In fact drizzling so no solar help to speak of.

RE: HOST Yukon Dump Valve Location

I have a 10" clear extension that twists on at the valve body and my hose clears the side and just drops straight down. I'm 6'3" and it's normal for me.

RE: Norcold 9.7 (10) cu ft 12 volt compressor fridge?

Not isolated. Evening hours are impacted by a C-Pap machine running on 12 v without the inverter on. We're taking it out this Sunday, no hook-ups for 3 nights with some cloudy skies. I can PM you a daily routine and consumption averaging from those 3 nights.

RE: Norcold 9.7 (10) cu ft 12 volt compressor fridge?

We have the 12v fridge you're describing with a 480 AH bank (4×120) and it's been a minimal draw. We have yet had to manage battery usage beyond what we previously were used to with 480 AH AGM (4×120 series/parallel). The fridge has a night/sleep mode, and has performed flawlessly. I had a 2014 Mammoth with the standard 2-way Dometic that had issues probably due to not enough ventilation and possibly too much un-levelness. I opened the camper side door and found greenish coolant puked out on the vinyl floor. Coincidence the back window is big enough to throw an old fridge thru?

RE: Northern Lite power side awning not working

Not sure what type of arms you have with your awning ( vertical or horizontal) to extend but on the vertical type, power goes to the master head unit and the other is passive. You can usually see wires extending from the side wall somewhere. The switch is a good place to start and checking to see if power is at the head unit would be an easy 2nd check, even with a light tester and someone operating the switch. My awning sometimes sticks and a small helping tug on the support arm as it falls away from the mounting channel is enough. Good luck!

RE: Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

When using any products to transfer an outline, be it chalk, ink or paint, the mat needs to be dropped in place correctly the first time. No sliding or shifting! You might be able to get an impression once it is centered-

RE: Bed mat and cutting out for factory bed holes?

Make a card board template. Youtube any video about scribing (countertops, flooring) and see if it makes sense. A saying instilled in my youth..."trust your marks" Then go wild with the power tools!

RE: Where to mount a TV?

This is a 4 dollar shower curtain under the slide using a projector. How about 1 degree of separation....Kevin Bacon in the movie Tremors being watched where it was filmed. AKA Alabama Hills

RE: Delays in camper buiddate

I need to update my signature but we have a 2021 Mammoth (7 month build and 1 delay due to awning issues) with the 12v fridge. So far its been great. My previous Mammoth 2-way fridge performed better with 2 additional fans to push air out the upper vent. The 12v is a slightly bigger unit I believe and there is no need for the vents. We also have the mid-range lithium package but with the 120 AH batteries. I actually saw the 360 AH cube battery in Randall's office as a demo and they were in the midst of re-engineering their 3 packages. You should have plenty of juice to keep the fridge going a long time! Good luck to you-

RE: Truck Camper Rally

We are attending. It will be our second time with the group. We did the first one, planned for the second but the production of our new camper was delayed. Looking forward to it-

RE: I like it!

We've never been pinched on our side entry in regards to egress or extending the passenger slide, however the awning has been limited at times.

RE: Never saw this before!

I think we're talking generally of 3500 series trucks. Taking this forward 1 step as to limit this to truck campers exclusively, there are states that describe truck campers as " cargo". Now we seem to have just gotten included-

RE: Never saw this before!

It's here in CA but not yet stated on signage. I've started to see the term " rental trucks" but nothing related to lbs. A truck owner is required to fill out a declaration of GVW and CGW upon registration. If over 10,000 lbs, the front license plate carries the current year with the small corner sticker and your declared weight is posted typically on the door with another yearly registration sticker. I was able to enter a small set of scales and talk to the officer at the desk. He never took his eyes off the monitor while looking upstream at his video streaming trucks of all size entering and yes....bypassing. This area is common for doing a sting probably monthly.
