RE: gas milage..

"Lite" is a decal. Nothing more, nothing less. It comes from the marketing department, not engineering.

RE: Black Tank Treatment - taken off the market . . . .

We use just water and hey - we even use toilet paper. Never any odor and no problems. Me too. The only additives that sometimes are in there is RV antifreeze in there from winterizing. Never had a smell issue.

RE: new ford chassis coming???

I was under the impression that the E series cutaway would be produced through 2019. I imagine by that time Ford will have available a Transit product that will be comparable in GVWR. GM still also has the 4500 Express chassis, although with a much lower GCWR. That's the plan from what I have read. There is still a market for small buses, ambulances, RVs, etc which is served by an E-350/E-450 size cab chassis. It would be a strategic error to cede that market especially since they already dominate it.

RE: Class C vs. Class A engine access...

Hi, I'm new at this and have looked at several Class A and C motorhomes. I initially thought the Cs would have the easy engine access, but upon inspection, the couple of Class Cs I looked at SEEMED to have more limited access that the As. The Class A I saw had a larger access hatch in the driving area than the C. Is this correct? thankd, groundhogy Depends on the van the C is based on. My 460 Ford class C was bad for access under the hood. My Sprinter based class C is awesome. Super easy access under the hood to everything I need to get to. There is so much room some folks have put the hydraulic pump unit for their levelers in there.

RE: Noisy New Converter - What to Do?

Something isn't right. Mine is dead quiet.

RE: new ford chassis coming???

Don't look for many updates on the remaining E series vans in production as there will be fewer vehicles to defray the non recurring costs (design, tooling, etc).

RE: new ford chassis coming???

Eventually something will happen but as of right now the Transit cutaway doesn't even have the weight capability of the E350.....in fact it's a bit less than the Sprinter. The E series cutaways will remain in production for now.

RE: Anyone having DEF fluid problems in a MB diesel RV?

No issues on mine.

RE: What weight toad do you have behind your class c ?

Replace the wife and keep the toad.....and you can't have my dearest. She likes her Vibe.

RE: Winterization

Why not just blow out the water lines with an air compressor. It doesn't take much of a size compressor. No water to freeze anywhere. I hate to contradict my neighbour down the 401, but that's pretty dangerous advice. Even a really small compressor can blow most of the water out of the lines, but it takes a pretty good-sized compressor (with large reservoir) to blow all the water out and be safe from freeze damage. Even a relatively small amount of water droplets left behind can settle down into low spots and cause burst lines or fittings. You need to have a compressor / reservoir big enough to be able to maintain ~50+ psi indefinitely to safely winterize an RV with just air. The only thing that causes pipes to burst is water that has nowhere to expand to. If you have virtually all the water out what is left can expand into the places where there is just air. Modern RV plumbing is pretty robust too. The industry is promoting the sale of their products and services. Much of RV winterizing can be filed along with 3000 mile oil changes which are heavily promoted by those that sell and change oil.

RE: Does insect spray with DEET 40 work?

When you re-finish a clouded headlight you need to put a UV resistant coating on it or it will cloud right up again. You can buy kits that include everything you need to restore headlights. 3M makes one that I have used.

RE: Fair Price Off Of MSRP

IN many cases MSRP on an RV is a very subjective matter. OFTEN it is considered MSRP regardless of what price the dealer puts on it. Much better to figure out what a fair price is and compare prices you're able to negotiate to that price. About the only way you'll actually feel good about it. For what it's worth around 30% discount over the original price tag is pretty good but STILL you may find another dealer who only offers 20% off of the same unit and it's cheaper. I wouldn't get too hung up on those percentages. Good luck / Skip One can get what is called a "build sheet" from the dealer. It lists the real MSRP of the RV and all the options. Add everything up, discount it 25% and there's the price you don't want to pay more than.

RE: Towing with Winnebago View or Itasca Navion

I pull a cargo trailer or a 2000 Tracker (or nothing). We pulled the toad on a month long tour of western states and national parks. This included running the Utah 12 Hogsback. No worries. We were very glad we had it with us. We put 100 miles on it in 1 day at Yellowstone and having a 4x4 was nice for rough terrain.

RE: Chinook ... and upgrade advice..?

We had a Chinook. Best upgrade would be to get rid of the carpet!!!

RE: Fair Price Off Of MSRP

I would think you have better leverage when purchasing an RV off their lot. And to me "fair" is only how you want to feel after you purchase. If you order from them, the dealer has their money tied up for a smaller amount of time (if at all) thus costing them less on their line of credit. I got quotes from Lichtsinn, Lewis and a local dealer for a factory order on my 24J. Lewis was cheapest (they beat Lichtsinn by a lot) and the local dealer the most expensive. I told my local dealer the quote I got from Lewis and they came within $600 so I stayed local. I ended up at 26% off MSRP.

RE: Snow chains for small class C

Do try them on before you need to. You really don't want to learn in the snow. It's quite easy to roll the inside wheels up on 2x6's to elevate the outers- but you probably knew that. ...and get some extra tensioners.

RE: cold weather camping

How many out there camp in sub freezing temperatures? Only in a tent. Never in a RV I've done both. I still am perfectly happy RVing in sub freezing temps.

RE: 12V or 6V Batteries - Which charge Better?

I went with Trojan Group 27 AGM in my motor home for similar reasons. I have PD 4645 multistage converter. I have found that the battery charges fairly quickly using the genny. Not sure, I am no battery expert, but I believe AGM's are more efficient. I can tell you, though it was expensive, the battery is a brute when it comes service. AGMs are more efficient. They have less internal resistance so less energy is used to create heat when charging and (more importantly) discharging. I prefer to use the energy of the batteries to run my RV lights etc rather than heat the underside. That internal resistance is also what factors into charging times.

RE: 12V or 6V Batteries - Which charge Better?

This is our 4th RV. I keep saying "when these batteries go, I'm getting AGMs". But each time we replaced the RV before the batteries went. When these batteries go, I'm getting AGMs. :) Mine went. I got AGMs.

RE: 12V or 6V Batteries - Which charge Better?

The above comments raise an interesting question: Is there any performance difference between using two 6V wet cell batteries versus using two 6V AGM batteries in an RV? AGMs charge faster assuming you don't hit the limit on the charger.
