RE: Slab City, California Observations

If you have visited the area, many are not living harmless or inconsequential. Broken glass, burning pallets and leaving the nails. Dumping waste tanks on the side on the side of the road, plastic bags fluttering on every little bush. Changing oil in the open, letting the stuff just go into the ground. That said there are many free camping sites on the other side of the lake. No very improved but nicer.

RE: Lesson Learned; Stuck in Sand

Yes, they are pricy. But they are pretty nice to have.

RE: Lesson Learned; Stuck in Sand

If you have room to store these, we use them in Mexico as insurance even with 4WD of in the race car. Maxttacs. They are surprising light and well made. http://www.maxtraxamerica.com/

RE: Portland RV show

I can count the times I have showered in the Plateau on one hand. The campground showers are better, unlimited hot water vs. a few gallons and more importantly no need for hookups were camping. For quick wash up I do use the outside shower when we have a water supply. We also tend to only use the B for sleeping, most activities are outside. Because of bears we cook exclusively outside on a camp stove. But that is our style of traveling.

RE: How is your van Insulated?

Closed cell foam board, the floors are spray insulated using the chassis manufactures body builders guidelines where they can apply insulation.

RE: Sprinter ROOF LEAKS

This has nothing to do with RV type AC units, but factory installed Rear AC units. It also seems to be the much newer model.

RE: pleasure-way shower

They don't mold their own shower pan, search for RV shower tub manufactures.

RE: Roof Vents??

Pleasureway didn't use vent caps. Hardly any rain would enter ours or does. Ours is a 2006 Plateau.

RE: Propane Alarm

Had the same issue with our 05 Plateau last year. Just replaced it as the CCI company is out of business.

RE: Mercedes Benz fuel challenges

Here in Northern CA our biodiesel comes from Propel, they manufacture bio jet fuel for the Navy at the same plant. I run it my 06 Duramax and 06 PW Plateau Sprinter with no problems. They publish a guide for vehicle compatibility available at all their locations. I imagine the problem of gelling would be a concern in colder weather.

RE: conversion of camper vans to 4 wheel

The Sprinter Store in Portland , OR is the only source of MB factory parts conversion for the older Sprinter chassis. Other secondary manufacturers like Quigley convert GM and Fords.

RE: GFI Popped and Won't Reset

Before replacing a GFIC. Try a different shore power or run off the generator first. There is a chance your shore power connection is the problem.

RE: Trailer brake controller

The Sprinter is a bit more complex to add a brake controller to. As the system is multiplexed the brake signal needs to be intercepted before the control module under the drivers seat. On our 06 even though the seven pin wiring was there from the factory it did not include a brake wire. Using internet resources I was able find a wiring schematic and then tie into the circuit before the multiplex controller. Some have simply added a second brake switch on the pedal linkage and used a standalone circuit. You really need to research this for the newer model Sprinter and be aware that most likely the trailer will not interface with the Sprinter anti-loc system.

RE: newbie battery and electrical question

I would got to FORD and get a body builders handbook for your E series. Ford produces these to prevent up fitters, especially from the RV industry from doing things that will void the warranty and more importantly something that will affect safety. It is part of the FORD QVM program. All the power tap points are there, shielding requirements, rear AC, body areas that you can cut etc. Great reference for all the chassis wiring as well.

RE: Disposal of human waste

If it is a "Wag Bag" system bag they are EPA approved for ordinary trash disposal. We use them whitewater rafting and have proven to be the best system for a small group. For larger groups we use a canister system that has to dumped in a sanitary system of some sort.

RE: Tire chains brand for Roadtrek

Our County Transit Buses based on the E450 Fords run single tire cable chains up to Lake Tahoe without problem.

RE: Tire chains brand for Roadtrek

What Chassis? Our Sprinter chassis with ride-rite air bags would only allow the use of cable chains due to clearance restrictions. While I only needed them once the performance was fine. Of course drive slow....
