RE: Streets & Trips Replacement

Does anyone use I Overland to find camp sites. Best bet would be to start a new thread for your new topic.

RE: King Dome won't stop searching or turn off

This is what I think of when I see the phrase King Dome.

RE: Trailer Brakes Not Staying On

Check your umbilical cord to the vehicle, and the connections in the junction box on the the trailer. You have a poor/loose connection some where. DITTO. It's probably a loos umbilical cord at the truck receptacle. On the trailer cor, take a screwdriver and move the electrical contact to cause more "spring" tension when the cord is plugged in to the truck. Also check the truck and trailer connector for dirt, grit, grime, corrosion. And NEVER use one these caps to "protect" the trailer plug. They cause more problems than they solve. This video I made proves it.

RE: Time to sell questions

Value based on other asking prices. I sell everything on Craigslist or FBook. Ditto. If you don't mind spending a small fortune for an ad, you can list it on Wherever you decide to list it, take good quality photos. If you use a cell phone camera for photos, take them in LANDSCAPE (horizontal) model, which is the proper way to take photos unless they are selfies! If you use a cell phone camera for photos, post the actual photo, not a screen shot of a photo. I can't believe how many clueless people I see do that for ads. Clean all your personal belongings out of the rig before taking photos. Wash the outside before taking photos. Nothing turns me off more than seeing a bunch of cr*p scattered all throughout a rig because the owner was too lazy to clean out their junk before taking pictures.

RE: SeeLevel tank monitor system

Does anyone have any experience with the Garnet Instruments SeeLevel tank monitors? YEP! I installed it in 2011 on my Arctic Fox Truck Camper. It worked flawless. I kept the monitor panel and bought new tank sensors and installed it on my AF 992 in 2020 when I sold the 811 and bought the 992. IT IS AWESOME!

RE: 2002 3/4 Ton Heavy Duty Diesel Chevy 2500

...the TT we are interested in has a length of 38'-6". Going off of the wheel base for a 2500 3/4 ton Diesel...that's probably way over the length you should tow Is the truck a Crew Cab or extended cab? Is the truck a short bed (6.5') or long bed (8')? That's a lot of trailer for anything other than a crew cab long bed. If I were towing that length of trailer with any regularity, I'd probably seriously consider a Hensely or PropPide hitch, which are the ultimate sway prevention hitches.

RE: How To Set Up An F-250 For Towing?

Com-on man, cut a little slack on his terminology. The original post confused multiple people when it said "3 factory installed hitch connection plugs" We didn't know what that meant.

RE: How To Set Up An F-250 For Towing?

I'll attach a photo showing the 3 connection plugs AH, those are the trailer plugs, not "hitch connection plugs" like mentioned in your first post.

RE: Mopkka tank Sensors

I've been using them since they first came out. Don't waste the money buying the tank sensor and monitor kit. Just buy the sensor kit and then use the bluetooth smart phone app. It's way more detailed on tank level.

RE: Go Pro camera

Try using your phone camera before you buy anything extra. BAD IDEA. Cameras on smart phones are very susceptible to get ruined by motorcycle vibrations. I know this because I'm a motorcycle rider who has seen other people have their phone cameras wrecked because they mounted it on their handlebars. A GoPro or another action camera idea is best. I mounted one on my helmet Here's one video of mine from a few summers ago

RE: How To Set Up An F-250 For Towing?

I see now that it has 3 factory installed hitch connection plugs on the tow bumper. We have no idea what you mean by that phrase. With regard to a hitch, the selling dealer where you are buying the RV can sell you an appropriate weight distribution hitch. Some dealers even include them with the sale of an RV. Some "USED to" anyway. Weight distribution hitch is all you need. Your truck should have an ITBC (internet acronym for Integrated Trailer Brake Controller)

RE: part three of the broken frame saga.

Northwood ditched the plan you build the triple slide 1163. Their reasoning was "it's so big and heavy, it will have a very limited customer base." They went on to say "Our efforts will be better spent building campers that appeal to more customers and have a higher sales volume." And in conclusion, "building a camper with such limited sale appeal will eat into the production capabilities of the higher selling models."

RE: 2007 Tahoe Tow/Haul mode

Tow haul must isn't a "must use it every time you tow" feature. It changes the shift points of the transmission, holding each gear longer. Try it and see what suits your driving style. I don't always use it when towing or hauling heavy.

RE: Automatically connect windows 10 PC to open WiFi?

Is there a way to have windows 10 automatically connect to any open WiFi network No, it won't connect the first time, automatically. You must select the wifi network you want to connect to. If you select "connect automatically" when you connected to it the last time, It will connect automatically If you are in range of that wifi again.

RE: Lithium batteries and microwave use

My 4x GC2 needed 165 amps to run the MW. My lithium needs about 145 due Actually it's the inverter that "needed" that amperage to run the microwave. If the batteries "needed" amperage, they'd be charging. In your scenario (batteries providing power to the inverter, to run the microwave) the batteries are discharging.

RE: Is this the biggest/heaviest TC on the market?

The next heaviest was probably the Arctic Fox 1163 Triple Slide.

RE: Lithium batteries and microwave use

At the time, most agreed that a pair of GC2s in series were marginal to operate a microwave. My First RV had a pair of Interstate GC2 golf cart batteries and a 2000 watt inverter. I owned that rig for 7 camping seasons. Microwave always ran fine on that system.

RE: Lithium batteries and microwave use

Does anyone have experience operating the microwave with 200 Ah of lithium? YEP. I had two Battleborns in my Nash 17k for about a year and a half. The Microwave worked fine on them along with the Victron Multiplus 2000 inverter. I think I installed them in early 2019. In 2020 I sold that rig, and then bought a different truck camper and moved the whole works into my AF992 truck camper in late 2020. Microwave still runs perfect with the same inverter and batteries. I've had two other RVs with 200 amp hours of batteries and a 2000 watt inverter to run the microwave. They've all performed flawlessly.

RE: I Bought Too Much Truck

I long bed truck will make a more stable towing platform for a trailer the length of the one you have. My solution for most parking: I don't park in the area of the parking lot where other vehicles are... I park in the back 40 so other people don't park near me. Seems odd how a F250/F350 could be 10" wider than an F150. Do the specs actually show it being that much wider?

RE: Easy lighting upgrades

I also added the refer vent door light a couple of years ago too.... we saw a couple of newer AF990's ..... I've done the fridge light many times. First on my AF811, then on my Nash 17k, then on my AF992 (which I still own). On the truck camper, I place them in the top fridge vent and add a switch to the lower vent. Truck camper fridge vent light.
