RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Thanks. I had Walmart do mine today. Quick and easy. I have not inspected their work. There were no oil leaks prior to today. I will slide under the truck tomorrow if it's not too freezing cold and take a look. It’s ok. About a 1:1000 chance that the filter isn’t tightened. No need to slide under. If there’s not a puddle under it, yer good.

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Howdy! Just had mine done at Walmart. Shell Rotella T6, filter and lube $80.00. In and out in about 30 minutes. “Happy Trails” Chiefneon They put $75 worth of juice and parts (on sale) into your truck for $80? I’ll take everything I own there!

RE: Planing on getting an Arctic Fox TC

No, Northwood doesn’t recommend DRWs for all of their truck campers. I’m thinking you heard that at your local truck dealer. :D Starting in 2013 and right to today, in Arctic Fox TC literature there is a statement under Camper Safety Tips and it states, a dual wheel truck is recommended for ALL Arctic Fox campers. That’s the snoflake-geezer clause. They weighed the same in 2012,lol

RE: Fit an 8 foot bed?

The storage inback is nice. The storage in front would be nice if you set it back. But it looks goofy like that. Your choice. Nice looking camper though!

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Well if they weren’t using the right gear then that is part o the issue. 2600rpms uphill at altitude with a big trailer? ROFL. Double that and that’s about where she should be running for that exercise.

RE: Seat belts in a camper?

I’d say seat belts in the camper are not going to help much in the event of an incident. Regarding riding back there, not a topic that will get a lot of love on this site, however it appears that it is not illegal in most states if I believe the internet.

RE: Fit an 8 foot bed?

I'd say yes but a dually not a single tire. ?? What would make it fit better on a LB dually than a srw? Or are you talking weight cop considerations?

RE: Fit an 8 foot bed?

Some are short/long bed. Appears That one isn’t based on the storage in the rear “wing” area, it won’t slide further forward. As mentioned above you “could” by blocking it off of the front of the truck bed and leaving a gap there. Looks goofy but should ride fine, essentially the same as putting it on a short bed.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Weird....this turned into a gas v diesel debate, whoda thunk it? If the General even halfway thought 6 speed and 3.73s was the best way to show off their new big boy gasser tow pig then whoever decided that should be fired. Back to your regularly scheduled banter.....

RE: Yet another reason I won't let my dealer touch my trailer

Well, without playing csi rvnet on ole bobbo just for posting, if we take him at his word and the wdh spec'd out 1/2" bolts and 5/16" bolts were actually used, how is that not a bag of c rap from the dealer? Whether it lasted 2 weeks or 2 years. Point is, he's pointing out yet another example of incompetency or lack of give a f___ by "mechanics" and like alot of you, I've found that to be the case with things too. Seems like a good PSA to inspect your stuff is all.

RE: Modern Food?

Unless you pay high dollars for a meal, everything just comes off the same Sysco truck everywhere you go. Even at high end restaurants much of the food comes from the same purveyors. It is just the way the chefs prepare it. We don't eat out much because of this. We have few favorites. None of them are chains. Many are mom and pop Mexican/Southwestern. One of our favorite places is Southern Vittles in Lake City Colorado. Home style comfort food. This summer the local campground owner told us about a place in Dubois, WY that was over the top including homemade pies. Tell me about this spot in Dubois :) Cowboy cafe? Dubois, WY friendliest town in the country.

RE: Campsite Sanitation - Beware

Love these threads, there's always someone who thinks sanitation is no big deal because they haven't died yet. Not me man. I'd never eat a sammich in the porta potty! I was in my Construction trailer on a job site, my office at the front end had a window and below it was the SaniCan. The truck pulled up and the guy got out to start his process, after a bit I looked out to find him with a big smile on his face. Nothing new he truly seemed to be a happy person. Then I looked down, he had the poop sucker in one hand and then he placed a BIG ham sandwich in his mouth with the outer hand and took a BIG bite!!! Suckin, chompin and smilin. He was in Heaven. Yeah buddy! It's only gross if he licks his fingers!

RE: Oil changes en-route with camper on truck?

Seems every shop, oil change place, dealer, tire store or most other places that do oil changes have tall doors. What was the question again?

RE: Toyo tires?

^ Presuming they're new ish tires? Have you been denied warranty by GY? Doubt they wouldn't cover it if the spare is bad too. You didn't buy the "wrong" brand or style. (Presuming you have LT tires and not car tires) Get em warrantied or just buy a couple new tires, pick your flavor. Sounds like defective tires. Rare but ____ happens.

RE: 2020 GM/Chevy gas 6.6L max towing test

Not about three and a half minutes. it is exposing your self to getting rear ended when crawling up a grade ant less than 45 mph! Also as Shiner Bock, stated power to pass a slower vehicle. It is nice to have the power to pass a slower vehicle on a two when the opportunity arrives. Pulled a pass like that with the old 2001, pulling 12,300#. So you are in Oregon. You ever travel Highway 18 or Snoqualmie in Washington state? Tons of large trucks going slower than that I can't remember the last time I saw one get rear ended. This past summer I followed my buddy of Snoqualmie pass with he 1999 7.3 he was well under 40 mph. I just hung out behind him no issues. I could have went around him no problem, but there wasn't a need to. Not disparaging your lack of concern about getting rear ended, by going slow, that’s not a high likelihood concern, I agree. But 18 over Tiger mtn I think is the most unsafe road in the state by stats. I’ve seen more terrible accidents on 18 between Hobart and I 90 then most other highways combined around here. And it’s not out of line to presume some of it has to do with the speed differential of vehicles on that road. Still not a “should buy a diesel” issue.

RE: Modern Food?

Eating out while traveling is one of those things that can be dangerous. I know of several road warriors who have gotten food poisoning. So I make it a rule to stick with the chains unless some local person has made a reccomendations . Paranoid much?

Tomman, put down the keyboard when you’ve been drinking. It’s a bad combination!

RE: Recommendations for quiet portable generator

^Yeah it’s a conspiracy We’re talking generators folks. If you want as quiet as a unicorn fart then buy $1000 worth of batteries and some solar instead. I’ve heard good things about Champions. But you generally get what you pay for and if you want cheap, buy cheap, if you want a generator for the next 20 years or one that will resale for good $ get a Honda or Yami. Confirm what Jim said, the Costco knockoff Yamahas are junk. One of my guys bought one. Wouldn’t run his microwave in the camper. If $ is a big concern, I’d buy a used Honda over a new off brand.

RE: Gap year, family of 6, TV and TT recommendations

Just the thought of a year of laundromats with 4 kids would be a burden. Do the nicer trailers and mohos with separate washer& dryer fit full size stackable or are those junior size machines? A consideration for 6 people full timing it.
