    Torque rod emergency repair

    What were you pulling on it with? Did you try a come-a-long? My dad always said “Don’t force it, get a bigger hammer”.

    Putting larger tires on the deuce using stock rims...

    1100x20 is what I have heard is the limit for duals on stock wheels.

    Wire Loom vs Wire Wrap question

    If you go the reward route , use quality tape. I second the suggestion to use Scotch 33. I use that exclusively.

    Things I need to do before I drive my M925a2 home

    Might you need spare light bulbs for stop/tail/turn signals? A volt meter or test light might come in handy. Do you have a serviceable spare tire? Does the truck have everything needed to change a flat tire (Including cribbing)? Have you thought to share your itinerary and route here for...

    12v Parallel System

    I have a dual Delco alternator setup I installed on my deuce after the original alternator quit. One is 12 volt and the other 24. Both are one- wire alternators. I did not isolate either alternator because I went to a three- battery setup. The ground is common for both the 12 and 24 volt...

    LMTV Question

    I considered using a hitch ball as the front anchor but that would be more intrusive in the bed when the camper is not on the truck. Since my camper is easily removed (like a slide-in truck camper), I did not want to interfere with that function. Since the trailer had surge brakes, the hitch...

    Air Buzzer not working, but have 24 volts and a good ground... buzzer works when hot-wired (Edited for clarity)

    To further you friend’s advice, have you measured 24 volts to the buzzer while it is connected? If there is a high resistance in the circuit, it may show 24 volts until a load (buzzer) is connected. This high resistance would likely be the switch since the installed buzzer works when you jumper...

    LMTV Question

    Alaskan campers are nice but pricey and torsion isolating frames don’t look cheap either. The HiLo was given to me and since I did not cut the frame, I could return it to trailer duty with little effort.

    LMTV Question

    The trailer sits on the bed, on crossmenbers I fabricated. At the front, it is attached mostly in a horizontal direction (slight downward) with turnbuckles to eye-bolts on the bed. Two turnbuckles diagonally or about 45 degrees from the truck centerline are used. This pulls the trailer tongue...

    LMTV Question

    I am not sure about the airstreams in particular but I put a HiLo on my M927. I think the key is to not have the trailer flex with the truck frame. Mine is attached to the bed which is designed to stay relatively flat while the truck flexes. Here is the link to my build...

    Cup holder

    I made one from a section of 4 inch exhaust pipe with a strong magnet on the bottom. It sticks to the floorboard, fender, seat frame, etc.

    12v supply on 24v house battery setup.

    Why not have one 12v battery recharged with a converter for those loads. Do what works best for you on the 24v system I have a 12v setup on my deuce but I went with dual alternators for recharge.

    Brake line

    Find a local hydraulic hose shop. I had all new lines made up at one local to me. Their fittings were even laser engraved with DOT certification.

    What is everyone using for stabilizers?

    Due to the stiffness of the suspension , I have not found I need stabilizers. Since my camper has jacks, I could use them if needed. Below is a link to my build so you can see my setup. https://www.steelsoldiers.com/threads/vpeds-stretch-m927.213148/

    M35A2 expedition mini home

    I have a ladder on my rig that is similar to your drawing. It was an old warehouse roll-around ladder that I cut to suit my needs. The handle rail is removable and stows flat. I adjust for varying campsite heights at the attachment point to the truck. The attachment points consist of two pieces...

    The dogs are my intruder alarm but I must say, the truck has not rolled away when set up like that.

    The trench is due to erosion from water runoff. I will look for pictures of the interior of the camper. Thanks for the interest.
