RE: convertor/charger issue

By erratic charging....it would come on for a very short time, lights would get noticeably brighter, and when it went off the lights would dim. The battery would never charge to full, and was charging less and less..as measured by the 4 lights on my control station. I have a separate battery charger that would always charge the battery back up where all 4 lights would lite. As soon as I installed the PD converter the battery (Trojan) retained its full charge, and the lights have not dimmed since. I also didn't mention all the troubleshooting I did with a volt meter in several different configurations before removing the 8955 converter...the key measurement was watching the converter trying to charge the battery (unsuccessfully).

RE: convertor/charger issue

My WFCO 8955 only lasted 6 years - and the last straw before it died was the erratic charging (and lack of) of my battery. My new PD works and charges really well. I also carried it as a spare that last camping season. You might want to start searching for a replacement.

RE: converter noise

The first indication that my OEM converter was beginning to fail was the flickering of the lights....and then we noticed that the battery wasn't charging very well. I carried a spare until the converter gave up the ghost - while on a weekend trip. Had to use the truck hook-up to bring up the landing gear. The swap out was pretty easy. You may want to order the replacement until needed. Good Luck

RE: Cedar Creek Assistance

I also agree, you can't beat CC customer service.

RE: 32 vs 38

My signature 5ver is 34'4". A couple more feet would be nice. Our next rig will be in the 36' area. So, I would go for the 38' length. JMO. Good Luck - and don't go crazy deciding.

RE: Slides stored in or out?

In - unless we're cleaning, tinkering, or loading up.

RE: Cedar Creek & Silverback

Our 2009 SB has some features that the same year CC's did NOT have. IT was considered more residential. We have had very few issues with it, replaced the China bombs after 3000 miles...CC service department has been GREAT - for the few minor things we needed taken care of when it was new. We love our open fp. Will replace it someday, but not for awhile....I like no payments.

RE: Dear Snow birds

Green728 - what a very nice post, for a lot of reasons...you've gotten some nice replies back. I have 3-4 years until retirement, unless something changes and I need to keep working....wife, has a few more than I. I can't wait to put the miles on the rig also. Enjoy what you have, and as was previously stated, it will come. Mike

RE: Cedar Creek & Silverback

Hey Mike2Wheels - why did you buy it then? didn't you check it out first? Doesn't say a lot for your ability to distinguish cheap from quality....our 2009 has been fantastic over the years - and going strong. One must remember most folks can't spend 70,80, 100+K for their RVs, maybe you should trade up. For our first 5ver, we've been very satisfied. Maybe like so many other things, they just don't make them like they used to.... Mike

RE: Cedar Creek & Silverback

I like our Silverback's basement situation better than the Cedar Creek line. We have 2 levels, which provides more horizontal storage. some of that is taken up by the spare tire...which if every needed is easier to get out than cranking down the tire which is mounted under the unit on the CCs. Our 2009 also has real blinds, which we like. Our unit has been pretty good for us.

RE: Purchasing a Silverback by Cedar Creek

X3 on the Welcome to the "Creeker" Club. We love our 2009 Silverback - very minimal issues. The CC customer service folks are great! I hope you enjoy your toy!

RE: Ordered 5th wheel delima

WAIT, WAIT - that way you won't get a rig that the workers were distracted, and took short cuts because they were rushing to finish before the shutdown...and yes, you'll get what you wanted. The extra wait will make the anticipation even greater! LOL Enjoy, Mike

RE: cedar creek 38 RD

I believe the FROG rally has a registration fee of $400. I plan on going in 2015. WE LOVE our 2009 CC Silverback. CC Customer service is the best!

RE: Sad day to winterize and put away for winter...

We are winterizing tomorrow - it's terribly sad. OP - nice storage "shed". Wish I had one of those. I have the room, but I'd have to cut down a lot of trees...the landscaping required might cost more than the building...
Splashers3 11/10/14 05:21am Fifth-Wheels

BigD2 - I have a 2009 Silverback, GenII....so it may not be the same as yours...but my converter is located under the bathroom, in my basement....but its accessible from my basement - on the back basement wall, there is an access door - which exposes my converter, and hot water tank, piping, etc. I just had to replace mine - with a PD9200. The converter is secured to the floor with some wiring going to the back of the fuse panel - which the front is accessed from our main floor - Its on the wall below our entertainment center - which on the other side of the entertainment center is the bathroom. You have to be smaller is size to work on...which is why I coached my wife - and told her what to do - I'm 6'3" and about 280 - too cramped for me. Good Luck - Mike

RE: Mobile Suite purchase price help needed

...and when you have it checked over, make sure you hook up water, and then run open sinks, fill up hot water tank and see that it heats, check holding tank valves by draining them - make sure all lights work, refrigerator works, slides, stabilizers, landing gear - even TV and outlets. You may even want to hook it up and tow it a few miles checking breaks and lights. Don't forget the propane system. Take your time going through this, don't be rushed. Even being a good price the unit is 9 years old. good luck

RE: Locked inside by entry assist handle

I'll wake up to a cricket farting......very light sleeper. I also have multiple extinguishers and extra fire detectors - using both technologies of detection.

RE: Things to get included in a sale

Agree that nothing is free...agree with Donn0128 - NO China Bomb ST tires....get good LT tires - even if you have to pay something for them...as I doubt they will give them to you free. Good Luck
