  • Night # 200 !

    A couple of nights ago near the end of our annual 2 week trip for the summer we hit night number 200 in our beloved 2016 Arctic Fox 24j! Not bad for a couple of still-working mostly-weekend warriors.

    The new tow vehicle is a dream come true. There is no comparison in the half ton vs one ton debate - not even the same driving experience. So easy.

    The black tank valve coming off at a dump station was a bit of a low point. Miraculously I was able to stick the rod back in that tiny hole and find the other 'end' to screw it back on - didn't seem to ever tighten so further investigation into that is needed.

    But even that didn't taint our 200th night anniversary dinner!

    Congrats. Makes me wish I tracked what do more so I knew how much we have stayed in the Fox. You can't manage what you don't measure right?

      Many members carry an emergency Twist-On Tank Valve. If you have a OEM valve that fails to open or close, that can delay / ruin a trip. Relatively inexpensive (Amazon, Camping World, etc). Just twists onto the end of your existing valve end - no tools needed.

      The handle angle is adjustable to 360 degrees, so will fit any application & sewer hose still attaches to end.

      Regarding your handle spinning, our has always been that way.
