Loaded and heading out. :B



An extra 15 gal fresh water, 14 gallons of gas and an extra 5 gal LP.



And firewood.






I went camping with my best friend for his birthday last week.
He moved in next door to me back in December 1963.

Exploring on our ATVs is why we own RVs.

We camped in Murdock Basin in the Uinta Mountains in Wasatch National Forest. Our camp spot was only 211 miles from my front door.

I camper here in the same spot several times about 12-13 years ago before moving to where I live now.



We had very comfortable early morning temperatures.

We had a GREAT time.




This counter space and the built in generator are two of my favorite things about my camper.

How much does a camper weigh ? Do you really feel the weight difference when it's on there ? I bet its a perfect sleeper.

Loaded for camping my camper is about 40 lbs shy of 4000 lbs so I know its there for sure.
Its a fairly big camper.





I bought it used July last year and I have put quite a bit into it.
It has a built in generator so with the push of a button I have plenty of power to run the AC.
It has a microwave and just about every convenience that you can think of.

The bed is a full size queen so its nice and comfy. ;)

Some pics from the weekend.



































It wouldn't be a group ride without a Polaris needing a tow. We also had two Arctic Cats go down, and one Kymco that didn't even get 1 mile from camp before it overheated.

The third picture from last you couldn't make it up that ?
Look at the 4th pic from last. A rock rolled out from under my tire and it pitched me sideways on a very steep incline. One tire was completely off the ground, and one other was not planted very well. I had to get off very slowly so as to not roll it over. Then I hurried and got the winch set up to pull me back over straight. The big rocks in front of me were no problem. It was the steepness of the trail that got me. The pictures just don't give any clue as to how steep this sucker was.
A couple years ago in this same spot, I came across a full size SxS that had tipped over here.

Yes, I was in 4 low on this entire trail.

Your front diff shouldn't have anything to do with low range. Something ain't right.

Well I don't know what the deal is but the gears in the transmission were changed and low gear worked a few times but then they started to skip again. I just done use it anymore and nobody seems to know what the problum is. I guess next year when I do motorwork well try to figure it out

Nobody on here ever seemed to know what the problum was. I know when the gears were replaced their was teeth missing. Low gear ran fine the first times I used it then the teeth skipped again

It’s possibly the “star” collar that slips over the gears. If it gets damaged, it can allow the trans to work in H or L depending on the linkage adjustment, but can’t be adjusted to work on both.

Ask me how I know haha

Here’s what 2 of the trans pieces looked like when it was rebuilt. Can’t remember which does what but you get the gist. Obviously with the sheared teeth it isn’t going to hang on to a gear, but I did manage to finagle it work in L.

Thanks so much for the post and your input. I would really like to get to the bottom of this issue. It would be nice to have low gear work because I never know if ill ever need it or not
