  • @maddmike I went through a similar gyration last fall and ended up with a ‘14 Jeep GC summit diesel.  All the bells & whistles, and as you know, pull like a team of Clydesdales. I “hear” of these reliability issues with jeeps, and maybe I’m just…
  • Someone told me a long time ago, “it’s not an adventure until something goes wrong!”  Learn from it, and enjoy the ride!;)
  • Yakima rates the tower mounts at 165 lbs. obviously the means of attachment to the tab is the weak link. Would be good to know definitively...
  • Nucamp...Elsie, or dometic. Trick isn’t finding the right diameter in silicone....
  • You may want to consider a transmission cooler.

  • My sister has spotted a [email protected] in her neighbors yard in Rockport, MA.
  • I hope those who do use a hammer/mallet (& I know there are a few on this forum) heed the advice, tips & or warnings as to why it is a bad idea. Learn to operate the equipment As intended...
  • No.

  • My version...what can’t be seen is that I epoxied window screen to the back of the lid to keep vermin & such from going thru the holes I drilled

  • Tabaz said: I have a Ford Expedition and need to turn the "S" hooks on the chain all the way up in order for the spring-loaded tab to clear the metal and secure the "S" hook.  The metal opening on the truck is too wide to simply snap the "S" h…

  • BrianZ said: Nice mods, @MuttonChops! Will have to add some of these to my "to do" list. Now you've got me wondering if there is any reason not to permanently mount stabilizer pads & save all that backbending trying to position them. Thanks…
  • @Ratkity no worries mate!
  • Plumbing vent conversion to allow tank flush! Brilliant!
  • Booradly has the issue, I’m just hoping not!
  • Agreed on all points.  The ether trick is not for the light hearted.  I have done it a thousand times (singeing my leg hair a few times to boot with the “whoosh of flame! Lol), and running low tire pressures on my off road jeep for years. But as sai…

  • I have enough issues with bio growths with my swimming pool & well systems...now my place of refuge too? 
  • @NCNative nice! Looks like the boondock/outback diamond plate battery box is yet to be installed and is inside the trailer. Will it also have 5he outriggers?
  • @Papa what is your tow vehical? It may have one built in from the factory. You may in the least have the wiring harness partially installed from the factory to a 4 or 7 pin trailer connector in the rear.  Once determined, and if a controller is nece…
  • @Ratkity ah, yes! The miracle of expanding gasses!! I use this method on utility trailers & my lawn tractor tires over the years. Bungy cords & rachit straps work, but are frustrating, imho.

  • @Gizmo nucamp makes a fine product, relative to the majority of RV manufacturers. Keep in mind this is a rolling house, that will be susceptible to not only the greatout doors, but the rigors of rolling down the hwy.  You WILL experiance failures of…
  • I agree with deflation at low speed and rough, soft surface. But be carful not to deflate too much as popping the bead would really suck, even if you have a ratchet strap to attempt a reinflate. I would prefer the ol ether & a match trick!!

  • It is the condensation.  It is normal, as an air conditioner is also a dehumidifier.  There is a drip pan under the ac unit with a proper drain to the ground.  I have found that a slight downward (tongue down)tilt will insure that it drains proper, …

  • The outback tires are radials, where as the the regular 320s are bias ply. The inflation amounts differ due to the different tire construction.  Underinflating any tire is asking for trouble.  My outback is inflated to 50 lbs before I leave(cold pre…
