New (to me) Arctic Fox 860!

Picker her up to day! biggest issue so far is the batteries aren't charging off the truck. I have 12v at the plug, so its something on the camper, not the truck. any idea? Solar and 120v both charge the batteries just fine, but there is 0 change in battery voltage with the truck running vs not.

Pictures!

I like my motorhome but there's lots of times I miss my AF 990. All the amenities in an easy to deal with package.

the battery issue has been resolved. turned out to be 1 of the 2 batteries was bad and [mod edit] wiring on the truck. I am now running 1 big Odyssey battery in place of the 2 it had.

Another update. just got home from 5 nights in the high desert. Longest and coldest trip yet. got down into the high teens a couple nights. no issues at all, a trailer in our group had some plumbing freeze but luckily no damage. heater ran almost non stop all night but it kept us nice and warm.

Its still in the process. Got a new (and bigger) steering box, got it installed but one of the o-rigns for the high pressure hose fell off during the swap and is no where to be found. that ended the hopes of getting it driving sunday. Later this week or next weekend depending on how much over time i put in it should be back on the road and headed straight to the body shop to get the bedside all fixed up.

New addition to the camping setup.



After 3 years my cheapy chinese 2000watt generator died in the 110* heat this weekend. Rushed out and bought the only 2800i local to my camp location and i love this thing. Ran it 21hrs straight only stopping for refueling which takes less than a minute. They are new to the market and i highly recommend them to anyone thinking about it.
