RE: waterfilter for eagle cap 1165

So I thought there would be a filter for this faucet as it is for drinking water only. looking under the sink the line is cut to the little faucet and has it's sperate water line with a shut off valve for it. I understand that i can put a filter inline where the line is cut to the faucet, I was just hoping someone else had a 1165 and would say yes there should be a filter for that faucet and the filter is a ....... and should be under the sink or should be ....... The kitchen faucet works just fine.

waterfilter for eagle cap 1165

We just got this 1165 (2014, new to us) and the drinking water facet filter is missing i think? Under the sink the 1/4 line is cut or the filter is missing, I did notice that the main valve is in the shut off position. The question is where is the filter and what brand or number is the filter?? I can not find any info on this little filter Thanks in advance!!

RE: pick up Eagle Cap 1165

So we did have food,40 gals of water,BBQ, one 30lb propane tank full and does have a gen set, solar panel, Sat dish on it. I am 10,200 on the rear axle at the scale I stopped at. The tires are rated at 2910 each in the rear that should put me on the tires at 11,640. The camper we found out has a propane leak some where in the tank area, i think it might be the switch valve/regulator, I am going to soap test as soon the rain stops,the bathroom vent doesn't close all the way and small little things. Yes it was the one in Evergreen

pick up Eagle Cap 1165

The wife and i picked up a 2014 1165 Eagle Cap in Colorado. We left Brookings Oregon Monday picked it up Wednesday. Started back home Thursday we went thur six states, snow, hail, rain and 40 mph plus winds in Wyoming and arrive home Sunday afternoon. We had no problems with the truck drove fine got about 12 miles to the gallon. The camper was a drifferent story but when you buy used there a few things the seller forgot to tell us??? But nothing i can't fix; we love the camper floor plan and the camper it self. We are down sizing from a 38' fifth wheel. So I have a 2012 Ford F-350 Diesel dually 2wd camper package. We have had big campers before Okanagan 117ut and Host dual slide so the truck has air bags, overload spring bump stops, torklift lowers and Heilway sway bar and Rancho shocks. Firestone Transforce A/T tires rated at 2910 per tire at 80 psi. Like I said the truck handle and perform great with this camper, in fact my wife asked if i had loaded the camper yet as she was sitting in the cab cause she didn't feel the truck go down. On our way home I stop at Love's truck stop to get fuel and thought what the heck I put it on the scales; I knew that i was going to be over by 500 to 900 but wow not what i found! Heres the numbers GVW 14840 Rear Axle 10,200 Front Axle 5,200. Like I said the truck handle great thur six states and yes with 40 mph we got pushed around but not at the point I thought we need to stop and wait it out. So I know some of you are running this type up 1 ton set up, my question is about amount over you are running at??? The specs on the truck are Gvw 13380 with out tail gate, Cargo 5168 Rear Axle 9,000 Front Axle 5,250. When I did the math before we got the camper Cargo was 5168 Wet on the camper was 5196 still when I weighted it i am over 1460 over Gvw. The Truck and Camper are paid for free and clear. Sorry for the long post Any thoughts other than getting another Truck, those that are running this set up are you this much over weight?? Thanks again sorry the long post
