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.

RE: Tire checking frustration

I had a similar issue with a valve extended installed on my 2011 Sunseeker. I purchased a Pressure Pro tire sensor system and installed the sensors directly on the metal stems, no extenders used. I have been using these for 3 years now no problems, I set the tire pressure in the spring on my first trip and have not had to add air for the summer and fall. I do remove them in the winter.
