RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Yes, also to clear the trailer tongue. It's a 992 I have a 992 as well. Are you not using a hitch extension? I am, a 36". I have a 24" for shorter tongues. my enclosed has a 5' tongue and the receiver is another ~10" so I don't use any extension.

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today?

Made some 4" lifts for the rear jacks. I'm guessing this is so your rear jacks won't hit things when traveling off the beaten path. Which model AF do you have? Yes, also to clear the trailer tongue. It's a 992

RE: What did you do to your Camper Today? So I bought two more and installed them today. Have you noticed a reduction in the amount of dust on the back of the camper on dirt roads?

RE: Anyone made the dive to Lithium and had it in four seasons?

Exactly, with the exception if running a compressor refrigerator during inclement weather... I put in a 110w dc-dc charger to keep up with my compressor fridge. I have been shutting the solar off on the drive home. It's worked out well with the battery drawn down to ~50-60% when we get back so I can just disconnect.

RE: Anyone made the dive to Lithium and had it in four seasons?

I think he means dc to dc charging. I have them, but in Phoenix we only have 2 seasons...maybe high 20s on a rare occasion. I insulated the battery compartment door so the batteries stay about the same as what I have the heat set to.

RE: Bigfoot tripping house GFI

Inductive loads cause ghost trips. Dedicated RV outlets are not GFCI protected, the outlets in the RV that need GFCI should be on there own. Heater elements and charge converters can do this, even though progressive dynamics says it 'should be ok'. I presume you have a gfci in the camper, so now you have 2 on the same circuit and that can also cause ghost trips. Our house is an old build and had a GCFI breaker, and later someone added one in the bathroom. The breaker tripped randomly, after the breaker was removed and the gfci placed correctly in the circuit it's been fine.

RE: Dometic Compressor Fridge Issue

You may want to try a small appliance repair shop prior to see if they can help. They are not complicated units, may just need an expansion valve.

RE: Why do I need a DC to DC charger?

On practical note for B2B charger is inverter combined with converter. So if you already have converter adjusted for lithium, or whatever batteries and on-board truck inverter >>> you already have the system. All it takes is to learn how to use it. To clarify - I am talking about 400W inverter Ford installs on newer trucks and potential for adding 1 on truck who doesn't have it. 400W inverters run for like 35 bucks. I don’t think you’ll find a converter that’ll run on 400w. I use a small Orion 110w dc-dc that covers my fridge draw at about 85w. Runs on the factory wiring so no need for jumper cables.

RE: 2013 Lance 1172 compatibility with Lithium ion batteries

the victron 712 has a contact that can be connected to the PD charger to disconnect at a programmable state of charge.

RE: Bigfoot tripping house GFI

Try unplugging your charge converter and see if it trips before you get to deep. I found it to be the issue with my other camper.

RE: Truck Camper Cable Entry for DC-DC Charger Wiring

how big of a converter are you running?

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

Most people never go off-road. Most people never go off good dirt roads. That doesn't meant their trucks aren't capable of it. Sometimes you get stuck. Sometimes you break stuff. Sometimes you have to walk out. Hauling a truck camper or pulling a trailer just makes everything a lot harder. Just turning around can be a big problem. Use some judgement out there. Buy good tires, watch your pressure and don't rock bashing without realizing the problems associated with mistreating tires. AZ dirt roads are hard on tires, they are rocks with a little dirt in between. Everyone I know self included that camps up there has had an issue with every brand of tire.

RE: Rieco-Titan Electric Jacks Sticking and Not working well.

I recently took the gear heads apart on mine, cleaned out the 10yr old grease and reapplied a new layer, they are way quieter now. You’ll probably need to pull the head off the one that gets stuck, can’t help much there since I haven’t done that. Todd

RE: Cooper tire failure at 65mph - now what?

I put continental terrain contact a/t’s last year and I’m really happy how they work so far.

RE: Camper to Trailer Distance The trailer has a 6' tongue so no extension is needed. Just have to crawl under to connect.

RE: Need help with Dometic Duo Therm Air Conditioner

If it ices over before it reaches the set point of the thermostat it's most likely low on refrigerant.

RE: Portable grill/stove

I have a Q with a griddle but will be switching to the blackstone. I use the griddle way more and the shape of the blackstone is just easier to deal with in a TC.

Support trailer water tanks

I'm wanting to add water tanks to my trailer. I found tanks by class A customs that will fit between the cross members without giving up to much ground clearance. I'd like to add 2 20gal fresh and a 15gal grey tank. I'm looking for solutions on how to vent the tanks, the trailer frame is 6" box and the deck on top of that. The frame rails are ~16" inboard so I can't really go vertical that far inside the floor. I thought about drilling through the frame and welding a pipe in to pass water lines through. Anyone have any other thoughts? I found marine deck fill ports that I could drive over so that may be a good option for that problem. Todd

RE: Vendor for pantry baskets in Arctic Fox

I moved mine up and use the cabinet base for canned goods, no pull out but adds a layer. todd
