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?
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.
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.
