RE: SUCCESS removing frozen lock nuts on HappiJac turnbuckles

And when you get it un-stuck, use anti-seize on the threads. We've had the same set of quick loads for 12 years now and I do a little lube and maint at the begining of the season every year,

RE: What do you keep in your camper.

We have a complete set of stuff for the TC. The only thing we "pack" is food, clothes, laptop, and sports gear for the trip, and that's from a weekend to a 2 month 3,500 mile run.

RE: Start of an Adventure with an S & S 8SC

Whats a good choice for replacing the roof? It has the look of aluminum but not positive on that but over the overhang portion I do see a low spot which is sort of in an unusual spot as the seam where the front nose meets the roof material is about 10" further forward. I was looking around and found roof replacement kits on RVpartsnation.com and they have a rubber kit or a superflex kit. Both seem like decent options and pricing is comparable for the 15' I need It's most likely the "seals" that are bad on the roof. Mine is 31 years old and the aluminum is fine, even flat. As long as all the seams are sealed correctly, it works great. I used Eternabond 4" tape on the roof to front tin seam and then Dicor to seal the edges. That was 12 years ago, and the seam is still sound today.

RE: Wilderness camping and gun safety

I am ALWAYS armed, but when in the "forest" I carry a .357 Colt Python in a chest holster. Living in the "wilds" of Oregon on a ranch for a large part of my life, you learn that nature is a deadly teacher if you are not prepared. I don't worry about Bears and other preditors much, but a Bull Moose is the angryist animal that you will EVER run accross, and has no problem charging you and stomping you to oblivion for no reason at all.

RE: Who's hitting the road this summer?

I would say YES, but it would just be a dream. It won't be in the cards this year unless something big changes. I think I will get back up to Oregon this summer for a period of time, and when there I use the TC, but won't be going anywhere.

RE: CHMSL

If people behind you can't see an 8'x 10' box on the back of your truck.....you've got bigger problems.

RE: Any thoughts on a repair?

Elkhorns are famous for rotting, as are most old campers that weren't taken care of

RE: Rebuilding "Ms. Merry" The Amerigo - Updated 8/3/2020

Your as bad as I am.....LOL. I plan on tearing the S&S apart again to "finalize" the upgrades/mods/repairs that we planned on 12 years ago. The section here is the only part I hadn't refurbished/restored of Ms. Merry in the process, its still all 1975 Original, including the mattress, which is solely hanging around because I need the cover from it to use as a template for the new one for the new mattress. Given we planned to have adults sleeping in that bed, its very good that we discovered the structural deficiency in how the bed is supported at the edge furthest from the back wall. Yep....a labor of love!

RE: you like Torklift StableLoads? / Upper, lower or BOTH?

I am confused though. I have never run upper SL’s and i am hearing some folks say they do engage when unloaded and other’s say the ride is harsh even unloaded. My goal is to not effect unladen ride. Why do some Folks have engagement when unloaded? Did they not set the upper SL’s correctly? Did they not trim them? Just eye balling the F350 looks like I will have ~ 2” before the upper SL’s engage. So why the different opinions on upper SL’s? Thx, Bill I believe it depends on the year of the truck. I don't believe that they were made when my truck was new. I've had to modify the upper stableloads to fit my truck correctly, and YES the front one just touches my overload when unloaded. I believe that when I bought them (12 years ago) TL said that they didn't know if they would fit my truck but that they should and may need to be modified for them to work. Driving a "vintage" rig has it's trade-offs and we've just learned that most things have to be adapted to work on 30+ year old RV's.

RE: Tie-down systems performance/safety vs cost

Happi jacs work but look at the red trucks bumper. It's bent. If that's ok with you then happijacs are fine. My bumper is bent due to someone borrowing the rig (first and last time)and being CLUELESS as to how to use the tiedowns correctly, even though they were shown the correct way to use them. People in general are lazy POS' and if it's not their equipment, they don't take care of it. If you use them correctly they work just fine.
