    Picked up a Northstar TC800

    Anyone in New England want to split cost of a container from Total Composites?

    I’d like to order panels and windows for a camper build from Total Composites, but the shipping is currently prohibiting me. They ship the panels in a container (C-van) and the current cost from TC to Ohio was quoted as $8000, so certainly more to New England. Even prior to Covid , they said it...

    Toyo Open Country AT2 285/75r17 on 2012 Ram2500

    I found a few people that are running these on newer Rams, but I could not verify that they didn't rub the upper control arms at full lock. Also will a spare fit in the stock location without modifying the heat shield for the muffler? Truck is stock suspension and rims, I have an Alaskan...

    2012 Ram 2500 4x4 Hemi vibration issue

    My Ram has a decent vibration under hard braking. The truck is very smooth on the highway at 70. When the truck is moving slowly with the brake applied the vibration seems to be once per wheel rotation. You can feel the vibration in the brake pedal and steering wheel. It's enough to be annoying...

    Sika 715 users??

    I'm seriously irritated right now. I used two whole tubes of Sika 715 to seal two Fantastic fans and a couple seams on the new roof of my Alaskan rebuild. It's been at least 48 hours and possibly 72 since I applied it and it's still sticky to touch. It holds its shape and if you push your finger...

    2000w Inverter Charger price choke

    I have yet to do the electric in my Alaskan truck camper build. I had decided that I would spend what was necessary to do a quality build, 2 AGM GC2, solar, shore power etc. I never thought a 2000w intverter charger would cost $3200!(Sensata Dimension 12NP20) I found cheaper Tripplites for $800...
