RE: what battery is used for starting a generator in a class C

My 2007 Four Winds generator starts from the house batteries. If it's low, you can use the emergency switch below the steering wheel to join the house and chassis battery for more juice. It takes 2 people in order to use the emergency switch, at least on my unit. I can't push the emergency switch and generator start switch at the same time because they are not located in the same area.

RE: Name of this part?

With no cover on the regulator, water can get inside. The water can freeze, plugging up the vent which can cause an explosion and fire. If you don't cover it, someday you will wish you did. Have you ever read about a cabin with propane exploding? That is what happens.

RE: Insurance pay for plugging into the wrong power sorce?

I would check every electronic appliance or device in the MH...I bet more than just the microwave is fried On the money. Better check the charger and converter and any monitors that were running!

RE: 6.0 Ford diesel questions

I had and still have V-10 Crew Cab short bed that I pulled a 10,000 lbs + 32 ft 5th wheel. Had a lot of brake problems. Had to up grade to after market rotors and brake pads. Slow pulling long grades RPM as high as I could. Gradually slowing down on the long pull. Never could stay at 50 mph, pulling long grades. Brakes would get hot and fade going down hill. V-10 is a good reliable motor that keeps on going. Now I have a 2007 FORD class C with the 6.0 diesel. It is 14,500 lbs. +. I do not have brake problems or trouble pulling long grades. Most of the problems of the diesel engines were fixed by then plus motorhome engines are the better AMBULANCE MOTORS. I would not want to be pulling that weight with the V-10. I like the V-10 for it's purpose. They cannot out pull a diesel pulling heavy loads up a steep grade. Fuel milage about the same except V-10 uses a lot more fuel when pulling in the mountains.

RE: 6.0 Ford diesel questions

The V-10 will have to work harder than the diesel in order to get up and thru the mountains. V-10 will not be as good going down the mountains which means more brake usage. Curious how well the V-10 will pull a 14,500 lb. 31 ft. motorhome everyday.

RE: RV Roof Repair Qustion

It appears to be a 17 year old rubber roof with lots of coatings of something. The roof has expired. Have it replaced. No fixing at this stage of its age.

RE: Sewage in Camper

What is going on with Progressive Insurance? They do not seem to be progressing at all as they should be. The ball was in their pocket 2 weeks ago. Did they drop it?

RE: Hand signal: "You have a flat tire"

I was behind a semi that had a small door open at the back of his trailer. I used a CB to tell him. Turns out it's a refrigeration air door. I have seen them a lot now that I know what they are. Felt stupid for making a big deal out of something that is supposed to be like that.

RE: wandering front

Gotsmart, your photo shows that your Quite Hitch takes care of your vertical movement. What about the more important horizontal movement of the hitch?

RE: wandering front

Has anyone heard that the boost or over boosting of the power steering can also cause this wandering. Over boosting steering wander seems to lessen with caster adjustment.

RE: Ford E-450 "Drive by wire" ???

BurbMan makes a good point. Something to really look into and missed by many people!

RE: Mystery Box under E-450?

Whatever you do don't mess with it....I've called the bomb squad. Try to keep everyone far away from your RV until they dispose of it.... I have no idea but couldn't resist. Guess I've been watching too much crime TV lately. Can you post a photo of it? That could help to identify the box.

RE: Generator: Any good reason to choose Honda over Yamaha

Honda is about to make a drastic change in their fuel delivery system by eliminating the carburetor. Wait and watch what they do! Worth the wait!

Front and Rear Sway Bar Replacement Bushings

Does it help to replace the original Ford sway bar bushings with the after market ones on an 2007 32 ft. motorhome? Has anyone changed their sway bar bushings? I don't want to replace the sway bars with after market ones.

RE: Dumping tanks- Waiting lines

Here is one that I think is the stupidest move that anyone could do at the dump station. I was in a long line at a campground dump station in Washington, when I noticed a commotion going on at the station. Some moron pulled up and dumped without using a hose! He just let it go from his valve right into the cement drain.

RE: Repair shops

When it comes to Camping World, everything is without reason. Never know what they will come up with. Camping World is not a place to get a diesel worked on! Big mistake!

RE: Disabled Rates at Campgrounds

Whether you like it or not Federal and state campgrounds give disable persons camping discounts. That also includes Forest Service camgrounds.

RE: Disabled Parking Permits

I have a disability not necessarily obvious on some days, use a placard, and anyone who yells at me is engaging in disorderly conduct and possibly assault, and is not protecting handicapped rights, which includes my right to live in peace. If you yell at me like a crazy person, I will call the police and I will press charges. And as for the "obvious" violations. People would think that of my mother, driving the international that was my parents tow vehicle. She would often have people come huffing in her direction, until she'd drop the walker out the driver's side, lower herself down, and head into Kmart. Someone bench pressing 250 might have problems with their legs. And news flash, disabled people go the the gym. On doctor's orders, in many instances. So, unless you are being a creepy stalker guy following someone around you don't really know. And, I look perfectly fine. My legs last only so long. I have literally put my hip out because I couldn't handle the wait in line at wally world and ended up in bed for a week. Hopped out of the store on one leg gripping the cart because I could put no weight on the bad hip. Was glad the car wasn't parked in the hinterlands Well put! It is none of their business. Who made these people handicap inspectors? I don't respond to those ignorant people. FYI, the fraud is over blown by people thinking that all handicap people with permits are frauds. Yes there is fraud, but not as much as you smart people think there is!

RE: HDTV Antenna Bent

How does everyone know that he has a Wingard antenna? Maybe it is an Antenna Tech brand! They look a lot a like.

RE: EYS services?

This is not a good way to buy? Who in their right mind would send some unknown person money for something that they never saw and don't even know if it is even real? Only a dreamer with no smarts would do that! Good thing you didn't fall for this scam!
