RE: Still Having Problems With TC and Truck

I thought Torklift frame mounts attached to the frame and not the bed . Do you have a picture of yours ?

RE: Front Motorcycle Carrier

Every major snowplow manufacturer uses them and snowplows spend more time on the road than anywhere else .

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

Most pickup wheels aren’t rated for that much. True , and finding reliable info on OEM wheels ranges from difficult to impossible.

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

LT 295/70/18 E are rated at 4000# . Most of the tire manufacturers offer that size in a verity of tread patterns . It would be nice if F rated tires were offered with that rating in smaller sizes . There are F rated tires available now but they are ST trailer tires , I would not use them on a truck .

RE: Finally made it to the Cat scales

There are several tires out now in the 18” size that have 4000# weight ratings .

RE: Pickup bed delete or cab chassis (C&C)?

If you take a good look at a c&c truck and take some measurements I think you will find that the axle bump stops will prevent the wheels from ever going above the truck frame so there is really no need for a hump above the flatbed unless you have oversized wheels/tires . You just have to watch the flatbed framing so the wheels have a pocket under the deck . The narrower axle on the c&c is the same width as a srw pickup so you can also convert to srw by removing the dually spacers on the front hubs and use srw wheels .

RE: Arctic fox 990 rocking back and forth

You stated that before you changed tires and wheels you didn’t have the problem . What tire brand and size were on then . Double check the actual tires on now , perhaps wrong tires were installed . What are the axle weights for the truck and camper loaded for camping ? Also check the weight rating of the new wheels , many aftermarket wheels are not known for high ratings . It seems the problem all started with the new wheels and tires .

RE: License plates

I don’t think it’s a big deal either way , probably depends more on the opinion of the officer if you do get questioned and you can probably talk your way out of it since the laws are so ambiguous. My state has two plates and no plates for TC’s . My camper has a light and bracket for a plate . I move mine so it isn’t obvious that something is missing . I’ve never heard of someone being stopped or questioned for moving the truck plate to the camper . That’s my 2cents worth of reasoning

RE: New to truck camping - Palomino HS 2902 with flatbed?

It’s going to be difficult without the camper unless you have some detailed measurements . If you can remove the sides to pick up the camper perhaps you can find a temporary place to hook the tie downs . You definitely want them inboard of the flatbed sides so your side panels can close . Most campers have a drop down at the rear of the floor at the 8’ mark which means you’re going to need a spacer between headboard and camper with that 9’ bed . Best to have the camper first before doing to much customizing .

RE: New to truck camping - Palomino HS 2902 with flatbed?

The camper should not rest on the sides , only the floor . Be sure that the foldable sides are less height than the distance from the truck bed to the underside of the camper wings . I used 4 short Torklift anchor guards for tie downs . They attach to 1/2” D rings bolted to the flatbed . My flatbed is diamond plate aluminum and the camper sticks like glue . If yours is smooth you will need a rubber mat under camper so it doesn’t slide around . I would also recommend side stops to prevent side movement . There are several good discussion in TCU of campers on a flatbed , worth you time . Good luck

RE: Evaporative Coolers for Lance

I don’t know what the Lance rep is talking about , maybe he doesn’t either . Every RV roof top AC I know of fits standard 14”x 14” opening , same as a standard roof vent . The particular model that lance used back then may no longer be available but you don’t need to stick with the same model . As far as evaporative coolers they only work well in very dry climates .

RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

Bigfoot is fiberglass not aluminum . Once you use silicone you cannot change , other caulks will not stick to the residue from silicone
ticki2 06/07/21 02:41pm Truck Campers
RE: Patch small hole in aluminum siding

Silicone should not be used on aluminum or any where on a camper . There are a number of caulks compatible with aluminum, dicor , trempro 621 , etc..

RE: 2007 Chevy 2500HD classic/superhitch spare doesn't fit.

I have had no change in coolant temps with a front mounted spare . Also much easier to access and check pressure .

RE: Heavy duty hitch extension??

Get to the scales with your present truck and trailer loaded , that will tell you how much capacity you have left on the rear axle and tires . You are probably limited to a small camper with no overhand so no extension hitch .

RE: External Holding Tanks for Extended Boon Docking

It is a guestimate but my sister went through this in the same area and it was around that. Part of the high cost is we are looking at a 5 bedroom house and a 3 bedroom shop so 8 bedrooms total. It requires over an acre of leach line according to the county. I haven't gotten quotes yet but will probably start looking at it next week. If I have way overblown the guestimate then great, I'll just do the septic and be one with it. I would suggest building separate systems , one for the house and one for the barn . If there is ever a need for repair or rebuild you would have some backup . For the short term look into a dug privy if allowed . For the small use you are talking about it would last for years . Not all locations allow them but many do .

RE: toilet water valve

It sounds like a place a spray hose option attached . Might have had a block off that finally leaked . Does it have a spray hose now ? Just a guess.

RE: Tires (the weakest link)

I would also like to know where you found a weight rating stamped on a GM wheel .
