RE: buying new class C

We purchased our Sunseeker from RV direct, $58,000 with a fair amount of options; Big foot leveling system, 15K AC with heat pump, 2nd battery, better interior trim, etc. Local dealers wanted around $73,000 and would not come down. Tried to scare us with warranty issues. I did have one issue with our AC but we have a local Dometic repair technician in the area and he took care of the problem. Going on 6 years and no other issues. I am sure RV direct made a profit on the sale, how much more would the dealer have made?

RE: Heating RV problems.

We have a 2011 Sunseeker which has an optional 15K BTU AC which also has a heat pump function which works pretty well, especially if the site has electric. It was an option but glad we did get it.

RE: Class C Manufacturer Recommendations

We purchased our Class C at RV direct.com in Albany NY, they were almost $13,000 less than the dealers in our area for the same configuration. We had to drive from CT and pick it up, 2 1/2 hour drive.

Anybody have any information of a good campground close to Gettysburg? Thinking of going down next year. Read a few reviews; nothing really stood out.

RE: Wire size on 30 amp RV cables

Thanks Guys, The voltage with no load is 120, drops down to around 115 when the unit starts up and as heat is being produced, it drops to around 111 over a short period of time then stays there. When we park closer to the pedestal, I only use 1 cord and did not notice this happening. leaving for the outer banks this week so I will try with the one cord and see what the drop is. Thanks for all the feedback.

Wire size on 30 amp RV cables

Do the commercial 30 amp RV cables you purchase from Camping World, Walmart, etc use #10 gage wire or larger? I have 2 of these, both 25 feet long and noticed a 10 volt drop when running the heat pump on my AC unit with the fan on low speed. Hot water heater was off, no other heavy loads.I do have a surge protector which will disconnect if voltage gets too low.

RE: Getting to running lights on Class C cabover

Thanks Guys for the advice. Tim's approach looks interesting but if the ladder slips, no place to get a car in to hold the ladder, my wife will have my head!! I guess I can drive 2x3s in the ground to hold it in place.

Getting to running lights on Class C cabover

What is the best way to get to the running lights on the front of the cab over? Was thinking of two ladders and a 2x10 over the hood?

RE: Clearance issue on Big Foot front levelers?

We have them on our 2011 Sunseeker, have not had any issues with them since we do not go off road. They do add around 360 pounds to the motor home but I really like them when leveling especially during bad weather or somewhat uneven sites. I carry about 12, 2X10s cut a foot long to prop up underneath the pads.

Solar Panel for charging Coach Batteries

Does anyone have a good low cost model they have purchased to charge the coach batteries when away from shore power? Amazon had a 100 watt Renogy folding unit which I saw on my last trip, owner has happy with it, went to amazon and it was $187.00 or so , week later, went up to $279.00?

RE: Group 27 battery

PN, The 2 batteries in the compartment are 12 inches long, 6 inches wide and 9.5 inches high at the top of the posts. I can probably get a 7 inch wide battery in but not much room for a wider or higher battery. Will look at the Group 31 dimensions. Thanks

RE: Group 27 battery

Dick, Yes I have 2 N27s in there now, A little extra room but not enough for the next size up I believe; load capacity of the compartment is 250 pounds per Forest River.

Group 27 battery

Looking to replace 2, 12 volt batteries in my class C. I noticed the batteries I have both have threaded studs which are used and posts. Are the threaded studs a standard used by all battery manufacturers? Not sure if this is called out for Group 27.

When we purchased our New 2011 Sunseeker, the only issue was on the of the AC lines was rubbing on the cover making some noise, this was corrected and so far so good!!

RE: What was your first newbie moment?

While backing into our site at dusk, my wife asked " should I go back there and make sure you don't hit the only tree on the site? I said, no, huge site no way! Well guess what happened!!!:o Was able to straighten out the square tube in our tool room at work.

RE: Leveling pads/blocks while in storage

I would be somewhat leery of moisture coming out of the ground, I used to park my pickup truck on gravel and have a lot of rust issues underneath, wife's car is on the paved section, much less rusting underneath. When we purchased our new Class C, we had a concrete slab poured, I park the tires on plastic cutting boards during the season; in the winter I place the cutting boards on 2 X 10s to get the tires a bit higher off the slab.
