Tote Hoist

My wife and I have been on the road full time for four and a half years and have seen a growing trend in the volume of campers especially at the end of each week. I attribute this dramatic increase in weekenders to the lingering manic like urge to escape from covid prison. You canít fault them for craving the outdoors after two years of house arrest but all these new fugitives have made it difficult to find a spot to park. We are especially fond of Army Corps campgrounds and they seem to be a favorite...

Spare tire relocation to tongue

Posted 05-17-2023 at 06:33 AM by RocknRoll (Rocknroll's Blog)

Here is a weight distribution mod I recently performed.

After getting rid of my (2) 6V batteries (150 lbs.) from the tongue and replacing it with a single lithium (45 lbs.) in the pass-thru, it was an opportunity to move the spare tire from the rear bumper to the front and redistribute some load back to the tongue.

Preparation involved re-routing the propane line and electrical wiring.

I found a spare tire winch on Amazon for a 2007 F-250 that had the...

TPMS including Inspection and Maintenace

Posted 05-17-2023 at 03:57 AM by RocknRoll (Rocknroll's Blog)

IMO, the 50 lbs. cold (for my tires) is NOT a hard number. There are multiple factors that should be taken into account. Before a road trip I'll do a complete tire inspection checking for cracking, tread abnormalities and finally a pressure check with a gauge taking into account what the temperature swing may be that day.

This time of the year, especially in the SE, you can still have very chilly mornings and by mid-day the outside temperature can increase 40 degrees or more. I'll...

cab marker lights not working

Posted 04-17-2023 at 08:06 PM by ttm21

Hello, I just bought a 2005 winnebago vector.
The door locks and compartment locks work with the remote and the cab marker light blink when using it. The keyless pad at the door does not work and also the biggest reason for this post is: When I turn my headlights on my cab marker lights will not work. I would sure appreciate some comments and help on this. Thanks

Main door Window Screen

Posted 04-07-2023 at 02:10 PM by HiBanky
Updated 04-08-2023 at 05:15 AM by HiBanky

My 2005 Journey,like many other diesel pushers has a window screen on the main door. This screen, under certain sunlight conditions, can obscure the view of oncoming traffic. My solution to this was to remove the original material and build a removable screen using a frame kit from Amazon. I made it a 1/4 inch smaller than the opening and added 1/8 inch of weather stripping on all 4 sides to seal out bugs and give it snug fit. The weather striping keeps it in place and makes it easy to remove and...
