RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Started packing and restocking for our trip out to the Southwest on Monday. Can't wait to have some warm sun beating down on us, after a very long week of freezing cold temps.

RE: living without a generator

Run your frig off the propane, it is cheap, and will save your battery. On our 2004 conversion van, we had a 450W inverter, and it ran the TV and charged our phones, laptop, etc. We would watch 4-5 hrs a night of TV, use the lights sparingly, and water pump occasional. It would drain the battery to fair or good. Next day we would drive to our next destination and charge the battery up, while also running the frig on battery. Depending on your use and what you want it for, a single battery can work. Doing it all over again, we would have bought an AGM battery with more amps, maybe even 2. We also have a gen and wouldn't be without one. Comes in handy when we stopped somewhere and needed to run the AC. We also used it on occasion to charge the battery. We recently upgraded our 2004 for a 2013 with 2 AGM batteries, solar panels and generator (won't be without one). The frig is an electric only and the TV is 12V. With our current setup, we don't have to worry about draining the 2 AGM's. Also, wouldn't be without a bathroom:)

Woke up to 3 degrees this AM. Ran the geni for 40 minutes. Took a couple of pumps to get it started, but once it started, it purred like a kitten.

Winterizing

What are the thoughts on putting antifreeze thru the lines, then draining or using the pump to remove most of the antifreeze? There wouldn't be any water left in the lines, only a small amount of antifreeze, that would be in the low points. We are leaving in Jan. for warmer climates and thought this would save some time flushing out the lines of the antifreeze.

RE: 1st Sprinter Service

Just call the 800# or a MB dealer. They will give you the best advice.

RE: GPS system

Thanks for the advice 1775. Our routes are to avoid as many big cities as possible. No desire to see tall building or drive thru their tunnels. Lived in a big city most of my life and know what city traffic is like too. Moved away 4 years ago and don't miss it. Still have family there, so sometimes have to make the trek back.:( I prefer to see tall mountains now...preferably looking up rather then looking down:E So much to see, so little time.

RE: GPS system

Good to know Bob. It is a POC. Yet, it gets rated high. Those people must not travel very far or often.

RE: GPS system

Horizon...thanks for that IMPORTANT tip. Never gave that any thought. This GPS had our home about 5 miles north....should have left it in there:B Took ya right to a farmers field. I like the idea of the police station. You could call them and let them know your stolen vehicle could show up there:@

RE: GPS system

Thanks for your responses. I guess it's more of a program issue then a "map". We get so frustrated when trying to enter an address, because it eliminates letters and numbers. Especially the numbers. Try to enter the numbers and sometimes it only gives you one number......grrrrrr. Our garmin does not do that, so now we carry it along with us. The garmin you can look at the list of directions to compare with what I printed on line. Gives me peace of mind that the route is correct. Haven't found this option on the Clarion/Tom Tom . Had the wrong location for our address to.

GPS system

We have a built in GPS system in our 13RS. We hate it. It's a Tom Tom based system. It uses a SD card, which stores the maps, just like our Garmin does. Has anyone replaced the Tom Tom maps with another map, by replacing the SD card? Is it possible?

RE: What Did You Do To Your Class B Today ?

Spent yesterday making a foam wedge to place on top of our sofa. It sits a bit lower then the side seat cushions. Topped it off with a memory foam. Spent today puttering, hanging paper towel holder, hooks, more hooks, organizing and throwing out stuff I haven't used in 3 1/2 yrs, restocking etc.... getting it ready for our January trip to the Southwest. Don't want to be doing that in Jan.....burrrrrrrrrr.
