I believe you can use the center pin for back up on a 7 pin


Kids today don't know how easy they have it. When I was young, I had to walk 9 feet through shag carpet to change the TV channel.

That's the very wire I tapped into for my bumper reverse lights.
Debated a switch, but realized the trouble it would cause me one day.

The switches for the lights are all inside the camper, but I learned the hard way always get out and check for low hanging limbs! So while out checking campsite out the rear light switch is right at the door , I'll be able to just reach in and turn it on for additional rear flood lighting.

Got to finish up wiring on camp lights. Put switches for front, left and right sides up beside the bed for any bumps in the night.

Used Wife's multi tool to cut the hole, I love this thing I use it more than she does!
 
Switches and power outlet installed

Wire on top to junction box covered with the Eterna Bond tape

Then on to new LED tail and backup lights!
Had to find out they never hooked up backup wire to rec. in the box! that took a while to find and fix then back to light install
These things are great! Super Bright!
Running Lights

Backup light and Running

Backup and Brake!

Now just have to do Pass. side tonight.

Well been crazy here since last post. 90 yr old father in law has been in the hospital for the last 3 weeks! Darn near lost him twice. He has hairy cell leukemia that dr's are just letting run it's course at his age nothing you can do, then came down with pneumonia in both lungs! They live 80 miles from us in Cass City so my wife was up with her mother 86 yrs taking her to hospital every day. Then he got too sick for the small town hospital and was moved to Saginaw St. Mary's.  That's 40 miles from our house, So Wifey has been staying home and going to the hospital in the morning to catch the Dr's and get any news while the other sisters bring Mom around Noon and take her back around 7pm. My Wife is there till at least 3pm every day. This has been very hard on her! And of course with 8 kids everyone has an opinion on what should be done! So everything she does around the house the boy and I have been doing! Dinners , Shopping, Mowing the grass, its been nuts! He's starting to show some improvement, very slow going. If his lungs don't start working better he won't be able to come home! On Oxygen mask during the day and bi-pap mach. at night to help him breath. It's day by day He's a tough old bird, so I'm hoping he can get strong enough to come home or it be a peaceful end to a good long life. Prayers for my wife Karen its been very hard on her.

But I had Monday off, So I didn't like the corner where po backed onto a tree and covered it with caulk. I couldn't leve it alone!
So I opened up this can of worms!
Rotten wood on inside

Leak around bolts for lift asm

Had to take canvas down roof rack off, plan is to replace bad wood and make a 3' by 4' L bracket out of 1/8" to reinforce the corner and put all back together when I get some time!

Yea we're still on leaving July 22nd return on Sept 17th!! But we've been side tracked with the oldest son's farm house he bought. Hopefully we'll be done with the remodel so I can get back on the last few things I want to do to the truck and camper before we leave will post some updates as soon as I get back at the camper!

Well finally got some time back on the camper, D day is coming up fast! Started replacing rotten wood in the corner. Bought one of those kreg jigs to screw the corner together, a little glue and 2 screws and it's solid!

Then put in this aluminum brace with 32 #10 x 3/4" screws!


Boss making sure I do it right! and lend a hand when I need it.

 Also put a Westin HDX Grill Guard on the truck, hopefully if we hit something it will stay out of the rad!! Had to take grill out to get at bumper bolts to install guard mounts and take out tow hooks and trim away some plastic for lower mounts.





 And installed Torklift Stableloads on the truck simple to put on lower overload and all mechanical no air bags or lines. Truck sits level with camper loaded now.

+1 on the grille guard. Even smaller animals can cause a puncture which can ruin your day.

Drive report:  Took rig to work last 2 days, wife needed the Equinox for errands. Lots of wind here 25mph with gusts to 35, truck handled the camper with ease :grin: The stable loads really work! Truck sit level with camper and no sway. Next up is storage boxes 1 between cab and camper on top of box rails over aux tank, will be 12" x 24" x 72" doors on each end. I'll put grill, lawn chairs, level blocks, and water hose here, on Drivers rear of camper overhang there's a door from inside that should open into the box if you have a long bed truck but with my setup it opens to nothing!  Going to have son build a alum. box at work that's 17" x 22" x 27" that we'll use for shoes and dirty clothes. Still have to run large charge line from alt. to box of truck with 100 amp 2 pole plug then put cord on camper to battery, this should give me good quick recharge of camper battery whenever we drive truck.

More info on the stable loads please.
I keep debating bags, 1 ton springs, etc.
These have me intrigued.

Yea I like the stableload's all mechanical, I had to take out the round plastic disk on each end of the over load. then the bottom plate bolts on thru that hole, then the top plates are put together with 2 or 3 angled plates to fill the gap so you're on the overload spring before you put any weight in the truck. They turn in or out with a 3/8th ratchet here's it out

and turned in

only downside is about same price as air bags I paid $273 off amazon
Here's Torklift's  website

Interesting setup. The camper must not be too heavy to be able to set it so far back in the bed. Folks had a 9ft camper many years ago and that thing controlled the 3/4 truck, I just kind of herded it along. Nice for hauling the boat or a week hunting but really a pain to get to and from the destination. Have a nice trip to Alaska, should be a wonderful experience.

He's putting storage in the front, and he has an aux tank.

Next up is storage boxes 1 between cab and camper on top of box rails over aux tank, will be 12" x 24" x 72" doors on each end.

Yea, I have an RDS 45 gal aux tank because the 26 gal won't get you far! The camper weighs less than 1500 lbs. so not very heavy, truck handles the thing fine even in the wind.

Well a little more progress d-day is coming fast! Wanted to up grade charging back to camper battery. I bought a 200 amp continuous duty relay and 100 amp fuse block, 25 ft #4 awg wire, 200 amp 2 pole plug for inside box to camper.  https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B005K2429I/_encoding=UTF8?coliid=IBXV51KJPV50A&colid=4LZ4VQGEYDW5

https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B00DNE4EI4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o07_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Installed Plug in the box

Then ran wires up to my solenoid and to fuse then Battery, relay to power up only when truck is running so I don't run truck battery down at night.

Will be working on camper end tonight.

Another solution to your battery charging could be:

https://www.waytekwire.com/item/77056/Cole-Hersee-48122-Battery-Isolator-140A-/

It allows your system to charge the camper battery without allowing your camper battery to discharge your truck battery.  Solid state solution.

Yea that would work but a little bigger to fit under the hood somewhere. Getting ready to leave this Fri after work! Lots of stuff and so little time. Large cross box above fuel tank is on and done, left rear side box is on  adds lots of storage from the inside!!  oil changed ,fuel filter changed, tires rotated, Backseat removed for more storage! built shelves with a slot in drivers side so solar panel can slide in and tools, jack, air comp. can go behind drivers seat. And in all this Wifey had her physical last week and Dr didn't like her EKG!! So off for tests this week, she had stress test on Mon that went good and has echocardiogram on Wed then get results on Thur!! Nothing like last min.!!Then hopefully  ok to go. And in all this help son move into the farmhouse finely !! I'll try to get some pics up of rig before we go.

Here's the storage box above the fuel tank, forgot to take pics while we were working on it!
And the side box my son built for more inside storage.
Also if anyone wast to PM me your cell number I would text a few pics for you to post of the highlights.
We'll be putting the camper on tonight I'll get some pics.
And thanks for the prayers for my wife, so far so good on the test 1 more today and she should be good to go!!
