Our Chalet Truck Camper

Sunday, April 22, 2007

Wonderful day! We loaded the Lance 1121 onto the F-350 dually on the first try. I expected yelling matches or divorce but it went so smoothly we were stunned. We'd read a lot of the back posts on Truck Camper forum about loading and unloading. We put masking tape down the center of the truck bed, hung a lightweight chain from the center of the Lance cabover, tape down the center of the Ford rear window, lined them all up and backed in. And this time we came in low enough I didn't ride up over the rubber roller/bumper. Next time might not go as smoothly but it went well this time.

Guess all that prep work in the winter to batten down the openings paid off with the generator. It started on the first try. Hose clamp over a thick plastic bag kept the insects from nest building in the exhaust pipe which is what plugged it up last year. I'll use the generator power this afternoon to vacuum to run it for awhile.

Now to de-winterize the water/sewage system, mild cleaning on the inside, load up the gear, etc. and hit the road. Great advice as always on the Truck Camper section of Http://www.rv.net.
