Keystone is one brand I haven't had. Started with a Coleman, had 2 Starcrafts, a Coachmen and 2 Aerolites. I have been very impressed with the Aerolites, which are made by Dutchman IIRC.

I tend to change campers slightly less often than trucks/Jeeps, but this current Aerolite will be staying with us for a long time. 4 bunks for the kids and a separate queen slide bed for us, plus full kitchen and bath @ 6000 lbs loaded. Perfect for our family at this stage.

Re: Important

Trixie,

Look at the Clipper or Surveyor Cadet line I think with a weight distribution hitch you could pull with an XJ. And if you worked for Keystone GO BACK the QC is horrible now. I usually have a 2 page ticket on a brand new from the factory trailer.

Re: Important

My do I hate car stereos. Ever since we welded in the rocker replacement we have been poping fuses on the radio. Still can't figure out why.

Important

Did you disconnect the battery before welding? If you left it hooked up it can cause all kinds of weird electrical issues

Re: Important

Did you hold the wiring harness away from the chassis along the inner rockers while welding or let it melt down onto it? it's probably shorting out somewhere along there.

Re: Important

The only wires that I seen going down the chassis were the speaker wires. Would those cause it to blow fuses if they got melted.

yes...there is power being sent to your speakers, if your positive and negative wires are melted and shorting against each other, they definitely can start a fire

Re: Important

so a little piece of me, for those that may give a crap.


at the young age if 16, i interviewd for a job as the night porter at a local car dealership. over the next 14 years to the month, i have advanced and currently sitting as a master certified parts counterman.

few years ago i watched the 2 men who taught me everything about parts, retire with close to nothing to their name. one still lives in a rough neighborhood. doing the exact same job for 40+ years. i decided that i could not do it. i did not want to sit at the desk i am sitting at now, only to retire and still struggle to live. so i started going to school for electrical technology specializing in renewable energy and industrial technology.

now i have been going to school for what seems like forever which is my fault because i have only been taking a couple classes a semester and even a couple semesters i didn't even go.

recently i have been really hating the fact that i am not doing what i plan to do for the rest if my life. semester after semester i sit with people that are already in the field and i just have a hard time because of my increasing age.

so i decided to start looking around and a buddy of mine works as an electrical tech for a near by factory. he said they have an entry level injection tech job open. i also happen to know the lead injection guy fairly well also. should also be noted that of all the classes i have taken so far, fluid power(hydraulics) was my favorite.

needless to say, i just finished making a resume.

crazy part is i am scared as hell. like i said, my last interview and attempt for a job was at 16 for a typical 16yr old type job.

ahhhhhhh!




cliffs: im scared about possibly changing my life.




SAM'lots of typing between this and a resume'SET

Re: Important

Also, thanks to the Denver Broncos for sucking so damn bad that i had plenty of time to write out a letter, resume, and reference page. since this game has sucked and been boring as hell and has not held my interest at all.
