RE: Pure Sine Wave Inverters best quality manufacturers?

No personal experience but I see Renogy is marketing their own psw inverters , looks like good reviews .

RE: Campsite Squatters

I'll dig a hole at least 12" deep and slowly drain my gray water into it and fill the hole back in when I'm done. No one will ever know I was there. That's the way to do it! Way to go

RE: Campsite Squatters

Of course, perc tests have to happen before a septic system is approved. Are you saying you’d do a perc test before you dumped your grey water out camping? Maybe, but probably not. ;) Also, if you know how septic systems work, not all that goes in is treated the same way, you still have to have them pumped out. The liquids don’t go on top of the ground. Are you saying you’d go back and pump out what you left? Maybe, but probably not. ;) You continue to compare Apple's and oranges . I could explain it further but I think your mind is made up . Fyi , I was a licensed septic designer and installer for almost 50 years . We are also way off topic at this point .

RE: Campsite Squatters

I thought you were for dumping any where. What’s the issue? ;) You are the only one who has mentioned that , typical internet exaggeration to support a point of view . Think of all the rural subdivisions where there are a 1000 homes on as many acres , all with on lot septic systems . A conservative design criterion is 100 gals/person/day . That includes toilet , dishwasher , bathing , laundry and consumption . Now compare that to 30 gals of grey water on a 100 or more acres in the wild . Also , no one suggested dumping anything on the ground in an established campground .

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

D1trout , thanks for the info . Interestingly the schematic shows the ground to frame in the area you mentioned but only on the road side . I don't think I will be tearing the bathroom apart to find it LOL.

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

Hi ticki, I have not found a place where the outer skin or aluminum frame is specifically bonded to the 12v ground. However on my ‘65 the Ground Wire of the pigtail coming from the truck is wired to the 12v house White negative line inside the front wall below the old screw-in fuse box. While I was in there I added a new ground stud (bolt) to the aluminum frame next to where the pigtail comes in so that I have someplace good to ground to. I also added switch plate sized access panel In that area so I don’t have to pull the inside skin off to get at that area next time. That's probably a smart idea . Since I couldn't find the original I added one . I was just curious where the original was . I didn't have to take my Avion completely apart because it was in good condition , but I know others have had theirs stripped .

RE: Campsite Squatters

I've never understood this human need to be in places where you're clearly not welcome/wanted. I don't see how this statement even remotely relates to the topic . Welcome/wanted by whom ?

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

I have not seen an RV that uses chassis ground. They are wired more like a boat or home with dedicated ground runs. There may be a central grounding point/post, but it does not necessarily have to be attached to the chassis. Bedlam , we are talking old campers here . The exterior running lights are single wire and get their ground from the exterior aluminum skin , witch has to be grounded somewhere . The schematic shows one , just not where .

RE: Avion truck campers - Hundreds of photos

Hi all , every once in a while I seem to loose ground to the exterior lights . For those who have had theirs stripped down , how and where is the outer skin bonded to ground . Thanks

RE: Cheater Vent - Air Admittance Valve

Agree with the others . You won't necissarily know which trap it drains if it happens , kit sink , bath sink or shower . You also won't smell it immediately , you may go to bed and wake up to it . They are cheap .

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Finally got it mounted on the truck , first time this year . Crazy summer . Heading for the Adirondacks right after Labor Day .

RE: how to mount solar panel

For some reason the Sticky Feet say not to be used with rubber or aluminum roof . Perhaps it's because aluminum roofs are not always bonded to the underlayment . It might be worth a phone call to see what they think the problem is . It would probably apply to the 3M tape as well .

RE: Front Window Yes or No?

If you need security cameras, you are camping in the wrong places. Amen

RE: Front Window Yes or No?

Guess I'm the odd man out . I would not like to have a blind spot in that direction especially when boondocking . I also like the breeze in bed when weather permits . Looks like I have been extremely lucky and have not had it leak and it's over 50 years old .

RE: Honda2000 in an Onan compartment

Mark did a very nice job in his Honda swap . If you notice he extended the exhaust up the side of the camper to above the roof when using gasoline as the fuel . I don't think it would be wise to just stick a stock gas Honda 2000 in a generator compartment and run it there .
ticki2 08/03/20 07:04pm Truck Campers
RE: Honda2000 in an Onan compartment

There is a big difference between a gas generator and a propane generator as far as exhaust fumes . I don't know of any camper manufacturer that installs a built in gas generator . Warehouse forklifts all use propane . Every time there is a power outage in my little rural state at least one person dies from being foolish with a portable gas generator . Think it through and good luck .

RE: shifting camper

IIRC as you let the jacks down the tub of the camper tends to move away from you . I could have that backward but you'll know when you're doing it . So lift the camper so it's slightly off the bed then lower the side that needs to move away from you until it hits the bed , this should hold it in place while you lower the other side . It takes some playing around . The other thing to determine is why it shifter . Good luck
