RE: towing my chevy silverado

You need to determine the weight you can tow...the lower of: 1. Coach's hitch rating. 2. Coach tow rating. 3. Chassis tow rating (sometimes different than the coach's). 4. The difference in weight between the coach's GCWR and the coach's actual weight when ready to tow.

RE: RV Cover

Don't bother with a cover. They are junk, hard to install and damage the finish. Most end up in the trash.... Check for past posts on covers here on the forum. Agree, hard to get on the roof, hard to put on, no place to store when using the RV, RV wears holes in it when windy...or rub marks on the RV. I wouldn't have one.

RE: Bicycle cover

...I have found the grill covers they sell at Home Depot or Lowes to work as well as of the others at a much lower cost... That's what I use also.

RE: Interested in your opinion of a 4x4 Grand Cherokee

..I don't have any faith in a CR reports. They seem to be biased... The April issue of CR lists maint issues reported by owners, CR has no input other than compiling the data. Every subscriber fills out a detailed report on his/her vehicles. Don't shoot he messenger. Sure owners report stuff, but thats a very, very, very small sampling of all owners. Take a look at the Board sometime, it's filled with a bunch of left leaning people, and not much balance. :B:B:B Yes, a relatively small sample, but just because it's a small sample does not mean it is not valid. As for the board and CEO. Within the last year they got a new CEO and is much better than her predecessor, regarding the issues you noted.:B BTW, I have had a Jeep...and will never ever have another. Last post on this subject.

RE: Towing a flat trailer with car

Many of the people I've known with trailers hate them after a short time of traveling with them. Many on the forums I frequent also hate them. Too much trouble with them on the road and at many RV parks. If you're just traveling from your winter home to your summer home and back, traveling just twice a year, then it'll be fine as you learn the best places to overnight. But if you're actually doing some travel camping, you should consider just getting a 4 down towable car instead. Agree. Four down is much more convenient if in a park for just one night and want to run out for a bite to eat. Also, many RV parks do not have storage for "extra" trailers.

RE: Primary & Secondary Fuel filter change question

...I always fill my filters before installing,... That's what I did on my ISL 400. I used a boat fuel filter to filter the fuel prior to putting it in the two spin on filters.

RE: levelers used when storing RV?

Use the jacks, that's what they are for.

RE: Dutchstar 4369 or 4381 question

I know they are model numbers, that's my point. If you have a Newmar King Aire, I know immediately what you are talking about. However a DS 4369 means nothing. Other than the length, all RVs do not have model numbers...mine doesn't.

RE: Dutchstar 4369 or 4381 question

I like Dutch Stars...I just wish they would name them rather than give them numbers. Be easier for us non DS owners.

RE: Replacing House Batteries

Rick, no problem replacing with the AGM, but you'll need to change the settings on your Inverter/Charger to match the batteries. Good advice, and if you want the AGMs to work correctly, you'll have to do this. I can't agree with that, at least not the way it is worded. Most all of the advantages of AGM are still present even with a fixed voltage, single stage "wet cell" charger/converter/inverter. They might not charge up to 100 percent of their capability but 95 percent roughly matches the capacity of a similar wet cell. This does not mean that they are not working "correctly". If you are going to the expense of AGM 6 volt batteries ($300 each), I'd make sure you have the correct charger and it is set exactly as it should be.

RE: Replacing House Batteries

Rick, no problem replacing with the AGM, but you'll need to change the settings on your Inverter/Charger to match the batteries. Often, calling the manufacturer of the charger is the best way to get the correct settings....especially if it's a Magnum. They are very helpful. Good advice, and if you want the AGMs to work correctly, you'll have to do this.

RE: Shore Power Question

Yes, your Fleetwood coach is designed to charge all batteries when on shore power or generator. That has been a Fleetwood feature since the early 90s. Richard 95 Bounder Not always so. On my coach, shore power charges the coach batteries, but has to be putting out at least 13.3 volts for the coach batteries to let the charge go through to the chassis batteries. I found this out the hard way when the chassis batteries were dead and the coach would not start. Yes, this is true of ALL motorhomes that have the Intellitec BIRD system. In theory, the system should keep the chassis up, but will fail to keep the Chassis if the voltage drops to float charge. Newmar uses the BIRD system but installed a small solar charger just for the chassis batteries to keep the chassis charged when the BIRD went to float. A way to fool this system if leaving plugged in for weeks at a time, is every 7 days or so, to disconnect Shore Power for a few seconds and reconnect. That will make the Coach charging system go to bulk charge and go over the 13.3 volt threshold. Doug I have a Magnum controller for my charging system, so another option is to increase the charge rate.
