Hi all does anyone know where the slide out controller is? My slide is cocked and I can't straighten it out.
Thanks Jim
CampLite Truck Campers / capacities

Hi all everyone I have a ford 8.4S and I was checking the capacities and my sticker on the camper notes a 36 Gallon fresh water tank, the Online brochure says 30.5 is a 36 correct?
The weight noted says under 3000 LBs and the brochure notes dry weight of 3100 lbs. Any idea if this is an updated camper or am I reading this wrong.
Thanks in advance this is a great page.

CampLite Truck Campers / battery Group size
August 28, 2019, 05:29:15 PM
Hi all I have a Ford branded 8.4S truck camper and I wanted to know what size battery folks have. I currently installed a Group 24 but I'd like to go larger. What are you all running?

I figured it out, my PDU had blown fuses and wouldn't charge the battery so After fixing that it solved my problems! a 5cent fuse GRRR!
Thanks, I tried letting it charge with jumper cables to the truck. I just let it run for about 10 min. I'll be checking out how to retract just in case!
Thank you!

This weekend we killed our battery by accident, I ended up purchasing a new battery to get the jacks up and the slider back in. Is there a way to get the Slider back in without a battery?
I have a Ford branded 8.4S
Thanks in advance

CampLite Truck Campers / inside window question
April 29, 2019, 05:42:39 PM
Hi all I'm thinking about putting in a screen window on the small inside window that faces the back window of the truck. I have a  ford 8.4S, has anyone tried this? I have yet to see anything like this.

On my 2016 TC 8.4S it's plastic Diamond plate. Looks Cool buy it really is cheap plastic. You can get it at Home depot.

Yeah I've had 2 people ask me if I work for Ford!
Thanks, after reading a bunch of posts I've come to the conclusion that I'll have to make my own solar rig for this camper.
Too bad they're no longer made. It's one sharp looking rig!

Thanks again!

Hi all I just purchased a Ford branded 8.4S
It's nice, we plan on camping all over california with it and some BLM lands too.
Anyway it "says" Solar ready, and shows a picture of a plug.
I can't find it anywhere. Any ideas?
Thanks in advance,
