  1. Wish we were there. Y’all have a great time.
  2. Not sure what model truck you have but there is usually fuses behind the glove box. At least on the 2 models I have owned that was the case.

    Bumper Pull Hitch

    I have done 2 different trucks of mine using this type that we built. It is simple, strong and looks nice. My bumper ties in with the hitch. This just bolts to frame Click For Full-Size Image. Click For Full-Size Image.
  4. Chad you have done a great job putting this together. Looks like it will be a lot of fun.
  5. I had a 1989 Teton Madison that I lived in while I went to college. It had 2 power supply cords. They ran into separate panels. It was a different setup for sure but worked fine. We had 2 pedestals where we parked and plugged each cord into a separate pedestal. My washer and dryer were the only things I ran off the second circuit. I had 7500 genset in it as well. That was a good old trailer. Paid for the down payment on my first house.
  6. Thanks for the responses.
  7. So it is that time of year when I am prepping the truck for the season. Due to still working what seems all the time I do most of my driving at night. I seriously need to upgrade the headlights. Unlike the Volvo’s headlights I have not seen many options for the 7” round headlights on my KW T2000. I see lots of LED headlights that look like I could make fit but am unsure. If anyone has ideas that would be great.

    Hope yours works better than mine if you go insurance route. When we moved to Pacific NW I wanted to make sure I had water covereage if we had a leak. I paid extra for that. To bad there was a leakage and seapage clause. Basically it was no good unless hit by a tidal wave
  9. Thank you. I have been thinking about doing this. Appreciate the pictures

    Yes it is but pretty cool concept at the same time.
  11. Thanks for doing this again Chad. Girls are in school a week longer this year so we will not be able to make it. If there is anything I can do to help with planning or supporting from afar though I would be happy too. This is a great event. Tom
  12. I left the backer strip on. There was no harm with it being left on. I ran it hot enough that it was mostly consumed. Everyone has their own way. This worked well for me. I am not a professional welder but can hold my own with tig and stick. Never been a huge fan or great with mig but most of my mig experience has been short arc in high production welding which is what I did through college working for Icon.
  13. Glen the 7018 was easier to fill and cap the weld. I ran split pass on the cap as it was over an inch wide with double bevel and gap. Just came down to convenience. Besides my little dry torch would have got a serious workout running that much weld continuous for the 2 frame rails.
  14. I added 7’. Here is a photo of my cut and fitted up. Mine were also beveled. I ran a tig root just because it was quick and clean and the used 7018 for the weld. Click For Full-Size Image.
