RE: Mercedes Sprinter dually tire pressure

I have yet to hear of anyone having air loss issues with Borg/Tire Man metal stems. Many Sprinter folks use them. For the OP, I had no issues with the stock extenders/stems when using V2B air through caps and a dually chuck. I have since got rid of the hub caps due to their noise.

RE: Removing Velcro from Gelcoat

Gelcoat won't be dissolved by solvents so don't be afraid you experiment with different ones to cut the adhesive.

RE: 20% Bio Fuel at Flying J/Pilot

So fuel marketers knowingly supply fuel that voids warranties and leaves the nation's roads cluttered with stalled diesel RV's? The same has been true for gasoline ever since different grades came about. A gasoline engine can be destroyed by the wrong fuel. You need to know what you are putting in your tank.

RE: help with class C - thinking of Sprinter

Obviously lots of diverse options - this is quite different than the Fiver world. The LTVs are really unique and clearly well engineered, but just too small for us - there is a reasonable chance that our kids may occasionally join us and an LTV with us and 2 dogs might be tight. The Phoenix Cruisers are definitely on the list, the biggest issue is that you have to go to a 29' version to get a regular bed and that is a must for us. Might talk to them about our options. (Ooops, obviously I was incorrect re the bed configuration, have to take a good look at the size, we had decided against the View 24J because of the size of the corner bed). Thanks, Ron! And the Winnebago View/Navion versions are all in the mix, though we are going a bit nuts here regarding bed arrangement vs kitchen counter space vs overhead bunk vs storage. Yikes. We are really excited about getting back to RVing, hopefully we will be able to choose one! Appreciate all the help! Overhead bunk IS storage. In fact we removed the mattress and installed a cargo net as it's just the two of us. We can put the mattress back if needed. Cargo Net Link

RE: dumping tanks in Winnebago view

The holding tank drain configuration on the View/Navion depends on the model/year. Mine has two 3 inch valves and is all gravity (no pump) but your results may very.

RE: house drapes open or closed while away?

Get a neighbor to keep their regular driver car in your driveway so there is a vehicle coming and going.

RE: help with class C - thinking of Sprinter

Hi Steve: One more thought regarding installation of HWH levelers on a MB chassis. I've been told (but have not verified yet) that MB will void their chassis warranty if levelers are installed. Concern is possible racking/torqueing the frame. Stabilizers are OK. Just a heads-up. I do not believe that to be true. A modification has to be proven to have caused damage. I can see how they would not advise it. Much like anything else they would not recommend anything they have no control over. You can void your warranty by installing a stereo.

RE: Oil Changes,Where?

what is the quick valve ? Change the oil in our E450 Winnebago Aspect in our driveway like many others. I use Mobil 1 full synthetic and change at 3000 mile intervals. I also lube the zerk fittings every other oil, change at a minimum. I makes the whole process easy. If you have the room the E450 is simple to change the oil. The filter is right there. THIS

RE: help with class C - thinking of Sprinter

I have a 2011 Navion J. I pull a toad if I feel I will need a vehicle at my destination. We took the toad this weekend to the coast and didn't even use it. I ended up being used as a trailer for carrying fire wood and other stuff.

RE: Trans Cooler?

Sounds like you've already got cooling issues. Address your cooling woes and work you way from there. Radiators aren't that expensive.

RE: Winnie vs Forester, thoughts?

When shopping I looked at both brands. I looked under the cabinets, furniture, etc and the Winnebago was way better. Better wiring, better attention to detail where most folks don look etc. For instance the seatbelt holes at the dinette for the FR looked like they were cut with a knife and fork on the unit I looked at.

RE: Questions about the 7 pin plug on a Sprinter

This is a common issue with LED setups. You can buy resistors to put in the circuit to mimic the load of an incandescent bulb. LINK

RE: Towing capacity of Sprinter motorhome

I'm not a redline when climbing (even with the toad). Yeah, I get slowed down to 50 over Snoqualmie Pass but it's no slower than I was going in my 460 Ford. I go easy on the equipment but I'm still passing the tractor trailers. I pulled my toad over the Utah 12 hogsback last year. It wasn't fast but nobody was going fast. BTW, at altitude I'm doing pretty well with the turbo making up for the lack of atmospheric pressure.

RE: Oil Changes,Where?

So while we are at it I change my own too. MB says 229.51 spec oil so I am using Mobil 1 ESP formula M (which is what is used by the factory). It is apparently made from the breast milk of mermaids making it expensive....and it uses 13 quarts. I wait for a sale to buy it and I can get it for as low as $6/quart. I use OE filters I get on line. Change interval is every 10K and I have a Fumoto valve which makes it easier...especially with the about of oil coming out. It is super easy. The filter (replaceable element type) is up on top of the motor in the front. Drain oil goes to the auto parts store. I used to work (in my previous life) at an independent VW/Porsche/Audi shop and am very particular as to who works on my vehicles having seen the work of some of the chains.

The filter is right there. You may want to send some of your oil in for analysis. 3000 miles on Mobil 1 is a pretty short interval. Use of syn generally affords longer oil change intervals.

RE: Oil Changes,Where?

Regarding your change interval, what does your owner's manual say? That's what you should do.

RE: Propane supply valve is stuck

Good practice when opening a valve is to back off just a tad from the full open stop so as to not get in the situation noted by the OP. Forcing an already open valve more can do damage. If the valve is open but not quite to the stop you can tell when you get to the stop and know it's open.

RE: Towing capacity of Sprinter motorhome

Then again ... off-roading can be done directly without toads when one has just the right chassis under certain Class C rigs. Here's us and our friends turned off a "4X4" road camping in a remote spot in Death Valley under dry conditions: That is hardly what I was referring to.

RE: Towing capacity of Sprinter motorhome

While I fail to see the need for a toad with a 24' C to each their own. Try off roading in a class C and you'll know why I take the toad.

RE: Towing capacity of Sprinter motorhome

Per the owner's manual our rig has a towing capacity of 3500 lb max and a tongue weight of 350 lb max. Later View/Navions are rated for 500/5000.
