RE: How to rotate dually tires

If the tires age out without rotation, why even think about rotation? True enough . But then how much useful tread life ( $ ) are you sacrificing if your tires are timing out . One other point I noticed in your scenarios is in A you will need tires in 2037 , in B you will have a complete new set by 2036 , again , apples to apples . The scenarios are not mine. But do you suggest somebody do something to wear the tires faster so the tread is gone at the same time the tires age out? Maybe find somebody that drives hard or lots of miles, sell your tires at about half lifespan for the value of tread? No sir , I make no suggestions , there is no need .

RE: How to rotate dually tires

It seems you have switched from a 10 year cycle in Scenario A to a 7 year cycle in Scenario B . Not exactly apples to apples .

RE: Battery Charging on Truck Camper

Put a solar panel on the TC roof & your batteries will be charged on the road, at your camp spot AND when it’s parked at home…. My batteries are fully charged EVERY day by sunlight……. That doesn’t tell much . What size panels , for how long , to replace how many amp hours

RE: How to rotate dually tires

First thing I would do is try the X rotation as your tire guy said and see what happens with the TPMS . If in fact it screws up the display , shame on Ram . To not be able to move an inner rear except side to side is crazy. If it was me I would sacrifice the TPMS in favor of proper rotation and better tire wear . In 65 years of driving I have had 0 blowouts and only a handful of flats , knock on wood . A blowout is instantaneous so it doesn’t seem TPMS is going to be too helpful . Just my 2 cents

RE: Shower Pan Reinforcement

If you have access you might want to inspect the floor under the pan , the give might not be the shower pan .

RE: We knew it was coming...

It’s what usually happens when you saturate a market in a short period of time . The RV market went up 17% and now it’s predicted to go down by 8% , that’s a pretty healthy gain yet they are crying ??

RE: Sealing my TC's EPDM Roof

I have no experience with the product but it looked interesting . I would also try calling a commercial roofing co and ask what they recommend , EPDM is used on all kinds of commercial buildings .

RE: Do you think this can be repaired?

If you're going to do it yourself, have a place, the skills, and the ambition, yes. If you're going to pay someone else to do it, probably not. that might not be nessasarly true. if you can find a good rv mobil repair guy who charges a reasonable rate and is willing to use you to help for thoes things that need a second set of hands... combine this with the outragous price of new campers right now.. you could probably pull the alumium replace any rotted wood, re insulate, clean everything up and put it back up, and reseal in a few days. I had my guy tell me the two of us could strip the alumium and have at least half the corners done in one day, so two days to have it back togeather then a couple hours to reseal and such as my alumium is in great shape. so thats under 1500 cdn + materieals so a few bucks of wood, screws, sealant and some glue where for me to buy a deicent used camper I am looking at 45000 cdn. if I do it myself then its just cost of materials. I know I have a couple corners than need to be redone, not to bad yet but on there way so I am just trying to figure out how to get a dolly to put it in the shop as my garage door is 10' tall and the camper on the truck is 10'4" Steve Please let us know if you get your repair done in two days and what exactly was repaired . I don’t think you’re talking about a sagging cab over .

RE: Shower Pan Reinforcement

You might try window and door spray foam as it doesn’t expand as powerful . Not sure how you will get under it to apply it .

RE: Pop-up Truck Camper Peeps - question for you...

The rules vary from campground to campground , you need to ask . Most of the time it’s a matter of consideration and accessibility. Being in a tent surrounded by RV’s is not wonderful. I know I don’t care to be sandwiched between 40’ MH’s , even in my TC . Sometimes is so the view is not completely blocked from those across the road . Most tent sites don’t have hookups . Sometimes it doesn’t matter at all .

RE: Ford F250 frame hold downs?

You can also use an old style belly bar if it doesn’t interfere with anything under the frame like exhaust or drive shaft . Given you use the right size material they are very strong . The down side is they are always there sticking out . You can make them short and use removable inserts . Keep in mind that with either Torklift or belly bar you are more likely to rip out the attachment on the camper long before either of them fail .

RE: What did you do to your truck today?

Mounted her on the truck yesterday for the season . Removed steps to reseal and urethane the exposed underside of floor at door . Replaced broken handles on kitchen faucet . Found small leak at faucet valve so replaced the O rings, all better . Checked all systems , water , propane , fridge and electric , all good to go . Next is a little interior cleaning , exterior wash , then pack . Heading to friends for the 4th in the Adirondacks for a week

RE: First big trip - Newbie questions

An air leak on the suction side can also cause this . Check all fitting from water tank to pump .

RE: Electrical Help pls

Once the fuse blowing issue is solved, I expect you'll be dealing with battery capacity. Heating appliances will draw your battery down very quickly. Yes, I am bummed. I don't know how to heat ourselves at night. Below 40-degrees and it's downright uncomfortable. We have a Little Buddy heater, but not for sleeping. We have Reflectix around the vinyl (we have a pop-up TC), but that's not enough. Back to the drawing board. For camping without electric hookup in cool/cold weather it’s pretty difficult to heat the camper without a gas or diesel vented heater . It was as an option on your camper , apparently not taken . It might be time to reconsider .

RE: Lowering / raising with manual jacks

Four inches at a time seems excessive...try two. Regarding electric jacks and trailer tongue jacks, I'm a fan of using a battery powered drill. I agree . I have manual jacks and if raising them one at a time 4” it will always unload one of the other legs . As was said try 2” . Ultimately it’s the same amount of cranks to achieve the desired height

RE: Lance TC - lithium - DC-DC charger question

Considering it’s a diesel it will be running in the lower rpm range further limiting its output

RE: Bigfoot dirty water streaks down sides from roof, solutions?

I have had good luck cleaning campers with Spray 9 . It’s also a disinfectant and helps control mildew .
