  1. Weird electrical problem, has weird solution. Fuse F3 and F4 are driver and passenger window respectively. With fuses pulled, there was no current on either leg of either socket. Both fuses have resistance. Pulled F2, and it has 12 volts on one leg. Now check F3 & F4 and they both have 12 volts. One of those legs is a common bar. Why when F2 is pulled, do F3-F4 suddenly work? I may never know.
  2. Cleaned battery terminals, battery disconnect switch terminals, the copper crimped wire ends, and a ground post below the steering column. I have a “data link hardware failure” message that looks like it’s here to stay.
  3. I had a bad vibration at 41-45 mph and it was worn tires. Either out of balance or cheap dealer shocks or both. On a pickup truck, you can tell if there is play in the front, while sitting still and kicking the tires etc. Does anyone have a trick for a semi? Seems like you would at least have to get that tire off the ground. I’ve never tried it, am I dreaming?

    Drom box

    Best of luck and keep us posted. Is the drom going be 12” deep?
  5. It’s the best yet! You have a good eye for design.
  6. The balloon festival has been something we would like to try. We will miss it this year because of my work commitment in Yellowstone. Have fun!
  7. Welcome to the group! Formulating a plan ahead of time, while you are looking for just the right model, sounds like a great plan. ( I didn’t do that. Ours has worked out pretty well in spite of that fact). Some guys do very well with duct tape and cardboard, some use the latest CAD. You will be fine. A rally, especially the National in Hutchinson, can make you aware of some questions that you need to ask. Often you can get the answer to anything you can think of from these folks. Somewhere I have seen a list of past presentations at the various rallies. This is the only list I could find, and it seems incomplete. Maybe someone knows where a more complete list is. I didn’t open any documents, I just glanced at the titles. http://www.hdtrally.com/Presentations.htm Good Luck and welcome again.
  8. The main floor door side slide? No, the pressure on the slide from tight edges will not adjust the slide.
  9. I agree with Kirk on the contact info. I would add, photos can be posted here but it can be a problem. A link to photos somewhere else could work.
  10. I did a similar thing, but without the plug connector pigtails. Wish I had done that. I mounted the jackalopee on the drivers side luggage compartment wall liner board. I drilled 2 separate holes for plastic bulkhead gasket seals And ran the main green commercial cable in, then black RV cable out to the trailer. The truck came with a Webasto diesel heater and factory exhaust pipe which runs out in the same area I wanted the cable. I think there is enough space between the cable and exhaust.
  11. I thought I remembered other discussion about pulley/snatch block arrangements vs. cable length. I searched but only turned up this post from Rick about the hitch, which may or may not help. As usual for me, it’s only slightly related. 🙂 https://www.rvnetwork.com/topic/135597-winch-capacity/
  12. I went with the Herrmann agency this year, in June. I also needed to move both vehicles registration to SD at the same time. I’M NOT SURE, but I think I just needed to have both vehicles registered there, not domiciled there. The rate at Progressive jumped almost 50% for us. No claims! As luck would have it we had moved out of NC and were full time anyway. Advice from this site led me to the Herrmann agency, and the policy is with Nationwide now.

    I would drive up to the second story deck on my house, when we had one. Maybe a friend has one you can use for 15 minutes.
  14. I would like to see the finished version.
