RE: solar project starting to come togeather.

I never use Dicor. I use commercial grade caulk, Sikaflex. What kind of truck camper do you have? I have a 1991 slumberqueen 100WS. it has a 1 piece alumium roof. Steve Aluminum I would use this.

RE: solar project starting to come togeather.

I clean rubber roof where mount foot is going, put down eternabond, 2 screws in each mount and I never use Home type sealants on my roof, I use what commercial manufactures use on RV rubber roofs, Dicor to cover the screw heads and to bead the bracket edge down to eternabond.

RE: Battery Drain Help Please

When your camper is "turned on" there is drain from stuff like CO and Propane detectors. Maybe its only 1 amp but that will drain a 100aH battery in 100 hours. That is only 4 days and your battery is 100% dead (your not supposed to go below 50% charged) I don't know if your truck wire to camper is live all the time or not, I do know Ram stays hot and yes it will draw down the truck batteries if that line stays hot.(when camping, I use to always unplug that line as a safety feature so I was 100% sure the truck would start when it was time to go home). On our camper we added Solar charging system because we camp in the National Parks at beach with no electric, but a side affect is that kept the batteries charged in both camper and truck. I now have a new RV but I have to store it in a field that has no electric. This new RV has a 100w panel on the roof (have not added more power yet but that is in future). I store under a canape which prevents my builtin system from working, so I put a 100w panel on a cargo trailer that sits on my storage site behind my camper and is not covered. I wired 10G back to the rear bumper of the camper so I can plug this extra panel into the RV system when in Storage. (I can also plug this trailer in while camping) That 100W keeps my Coach charged (Two 27 series AGM) AND my chassis (one 30 series AGM)all the time. since I installed my Panel so I could tilt it, others see it and now I see many other panels popping up in the storage field. Most appear to be 50w which might be enough but I do know my 100W works for me.

RE: 1977 Sunline Truck Camper FULL BUILD

I hope you can come back in a year and tell us how that paint on shower pan is holding? Even professional tubs restoration with specially made epoxy paints have very short lasting records. I have used that topside paint on an old fiberglass boat, held up fine for several years I owned the boat. Even with the flexing when walking on it.

RE: Timbrens vs Stableloads

I had the lowers on my 2018 Ram dually and really liked them. They were nice how you turn them to take them out of play when not needed, and a pin to hold in correct position. Plus now they make stainless.

RE: Torklift Rust

RE: Airbags not working with overloads

I have had several rams with top overload springs. the problem I have found is some loads your springs are just hitting the overload springs, but when you hit a bump and "bang" the upper spring hits the overload bracket and you feel the jolt in the suspension. now you have air bags on and it jacked up teh truck so your sitting higher, and I bet the overloads are banging even harder when you hit them. ON my 2006 I replaced the thinner overload pads on the frame with a set of these (you will need 2 sets, or 4 bumpers) click here they are not designed to be used in this job, but I ran them 100,000 miles with different 5th wheels and a Wolf Creek truck camper with no problem (my brother still owns the truck with them installed). what these do is as the weight goes up, these hit the springs sooner, but because of the holes in them they compress some and take the JOLT out of the springs banging into the frame perches.

RE: Removing Contact Overloads I would say the spring on top of this pictures is the contact overload. as the body drops, that top spring comes in contact with mounts that stick out from the frame. this is a picture of Torklift upper (and lower) stableloads.

RE: Super Basic Solar Upgrade

I saw this nice mount on a sprinter where they had 2 panels stacked, and when you deploy them one slides out like a tray from under the other one. it even blocked ran at the door. But your idea of angle has merit, but affect the further south you get. hear in FL I am running Flat during the summer.

RE: Propane Generator to Gas.

The reason why small RVs don’t have gasoline engine generators is they don’t typically have gasoline storage built in. Removing 1 of 7.5 gallons propane cylinders make plenty of storage for gas can.... with triple running time. well maybe 30% longer, but not 300% longer. But Propane is a whole lot safer. conventional gasoline has an energy content of 116,090 Btus per gallon, while propane has an energy content of 84,250 Btus per gallon. As such, 1.38 gallons of propane has the same amount of energy as one gallon of conventional gasoline.

RE: Memory foam mattress

The bed area, from underneath, can’t be that well insulated, at least in our camper, but thanks for the information on turning on the furnace.?? We used to run a layer of reflectix insulation under the mattress, than a layer of something like the Aire-flow (shown above) sandwiched between insulation and mattress
