RE: Putting some glide in the ride….

When sitting in the truck seats you are between the front and rear axles which give the best ride . When in the camper while driving you are close to being directly over the rear axle which will be the roughest ride . Same as on a boat .

Thanks for the explanation, interesting system . I will have some other questions when I have a chance to think a little more about it .

RE: Battery Question

Take it out of storage at -37 and let me know how that works for you. I sure would like to know your routine after you take your camper out of storage at -37 to warm the interior up to a reasonable temperature , with what heat source , and how long it takes . he has a motorhome, lots of room and payload capability for batteries, probably just starts the furnace while he drives. the weight and spae limitations of a camper mean nothing to him. Steve I am well aware of his rv , it is listed in his signature . I imagine he would heat the interior with the engine heater , at least at first . A truck camper does not have that ability , it would have to rely on the furnace or electric if shore power was available.. I also know from experience it takes a lot of heat to warm up the interior of a camper starting at -37C . That is why I was curios how the poster was accomplishing the above .

RE: Australian Truck Campers are dramatically growing

It’s amazing how some folk judge the quality of something from a picture on a web site without any first hand knowledge . There also never seems to be a price mentioned for these superior campers to know what or who would be a reasonable competitor.

RE: Battery Question

Again, this is all a distraction from the point I was actually making. The point in the very unlikely circumstance that you need to use your LiFePO4 camper battery in temperatures below -20C, the battery will work just fine, you will be able to fire up the furnace or battery heater and warm up the camper. At that point you can charge your battery, fill your water tank, and do what every you need to do. Every time there is a discussion of LiFePO4 batteries, there are always a few who say that they are no good if you camp in cold weather (some are now even claiming 'cool weather'). My experience is exactly the opposite, they have worked just fine for me in cold weather. Yes there are limitations on charging, but these are generally easy to overcome, and are not nearly as restrictive as the limitations on your water system. While it has always appeared that rv.net has more then its share of trolls and internet experts who seemingly always want to argue why something won't work, the reality for me is that for where I live and camp I'd rarely if ever run into temperatures that make charging my LiFePO4 a issue. Obviously for others their MMV. - Mark0. Are you guys trying to inject some reasoning into this subject ? Shame on you .

RE: $135k for a very basic camper?

Also: Wet weight: 3915lbs Does that mean if I put 1500lbs of stuff in the 3000lb "dry" camper, it will never weigh more than 3915lbs? They did explain where the 3915 lbs came from , all the normal fluids and such that are usually referred to as wet weight plus 500lbs of stuff

RE: New Ram 5500 Build

Without them you will probably sandblast the finish off the tool box . They will also help protect anything you tow . I use them front and rear of the rear tires .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

If you have the name and model number you should be able to check the load rating. Don't assume they are suitable because they came off a 1 ton truck. The OP here also had them on an HD pickup. Plenty of people buy wheels and tires they like without any regard to load ratings. No! The OP here, me, had a wheel crack. The wheels on the truck are factory original the best of my knowledge. However, I DID buy an extra wheel that was supposed to be a factory GM wheel. It is entirely possible I was sold an inferior product and that is what is cracked. I'll find out this weekend when I pull another wheel off the truck and when I check my second set of wheels in storage. An original OEM GM PYO aluminum wheel has everything printed under the center cap , no need to pull the wheel just remove the cap .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

For the first 10 years of my trucks life I read regularly the Duramax forums , learned a lot from some pretty sharp people . Never once during that period did I come across a failed OEM wheel post . Not saying it can’t happen , there can always be a flaw in manufacturing , but it’s pretty rare . I once had an inner steel dually crack completely around the hub .

RE: Cracked rim on 2007 2500hd classic

On my 03 2500hd there is no weight rating stamped in the wheels . I have not seen a GM wheel yet that showed a weight rating , only a part number . I wonder if that is a knockoff or OEM .

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

It’s hard to tell from photos but if the wings and floor are solid I would say that is a very good buy for anyone interested .

RE: agm charging capability in 2016 Af 811SB?

Even with no battery you should have power from converter if you plug into shore power
