RE: towed vehicle choce

Honda CRV, 2014 or earlier. We are on CRV #2, great tow vehicles.

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.

RE: Would you drive in the snow?

No, unless some type emergency and you had to travel...why risk it?

RE: Steer tire width...

..."get a tire with extra long tread life" ... guess if your tires are 14 years old then tread life may be a concern, otherwise most age out before they wear out... True, most RVers never run the tread off the tires...they die of old age first.

RE: Chipped 450 Cummins

Run, the Allison 3000 tranny is maxed out at 400 HP... 1200 ft lbs max. The ISL 450 has a flat torque curve from 1200 to 1600 rpms to not over work the tranny. They've up rated the 3000 to 450/1250 and the 4000 to 650/1950.

RE: Towing

I prefer 4 down because I don't have to try to store a tow dolly or trailer at every CG. Same here.

RE: Which oil lab JG or Blackstone?

One thing they test for is substances that do not belong...like coolant.

RE: Which oil lab JG or Blackstone?

The owner of JG is Tom Johnson. He was a key player in developing Transynd tranmission fluid. If you call that shop, you can talk to him on the phone...he even answered the phone when I call two years ago.

RE: Allison transmission

Many things will cause the Allison not to shift...rpm to high, jacks down, parking brake on...call Allison, they can help.

RE: Wheel base and tag axles

Back to the OP's question. Getting a tag does not always increase the wheelbase. We went from a 40' DP to a 45' DP...same wheelbase.

RE: New Wrangler toad ?

I'd call Jeep. They are having serious wobble issues with one model...don't think it's the Wrangler, but I'd check it out. Also you might Bing or Google "jeep wobble."

RE: chassis batteries draing

Call Fleetwood. Some of their coaches charge the coach batteries first, then when they reach a certain charge, the chassis batteries charge. If the coach batteries never reach the charge required, the chassis batteries will never be charged.

RE: Are Coach Batteries Charged When Driving?

You need to know how your specific coach works. On my coach, when the engine is running, it is charging the chassis batteries. When they reach a certain charge, the coach batteries will be charged.
