RE: Fiat 500

We rented one on vacation too. The driver's armrest was already broken. My wife refers to it as the worst car ever. And it isn't like she is used to the best; she drives a base Versa. It was easy to park at the campsite because it was so short. I remember the engine being loud.

RE: Winnebago Sightseer slide retaining strap

My primary concern is that of crashworthiness since the slide will house the passenger. Looking at the screws for the attachment point on the slide, it is hard to believe they are designed to withstand much of a load.

Winnebago Sightseer slide retaining strap

My 02 Winnebago Sightseer 27c has a Quickee slide. The prior owner removed the carpet and installed vinyl tile. Originally, this motorhome was equiped with a retaining strap for the slide. The attachment point for the strap is still on the slide itself, but both the strap and the floor attachment point are gone. The slide has a dinette that contains the only area for passengers to sit. My daughter will be sitting in this dinette on our next trip. Is this strap necessary? If it is, I would have to order and the floor attachment point and the strap.

RE: New class C partial remodel

Alternatively, is there a way to make the dinete seat more comfortable?

RE: Headlights 2002 Winnebago Sightseer

Just installed Hella E codes from Amazon. The sealed beams light output looked yellow. New Hellas look whiter and brighter. I'll try to find the ground and clean it before the next trip.

RE: What did you do to your Class A MH today???

Eternabond to seal the holes. Prep with Laquer Thinner The awning is probably toast, but that can wait. The screws may have been tweaked so they may leak, so dont wait too long. Those new electric awnings are nice.

RE: Installing Inteli-Power 4600

I broke the little latch that holds the top door shut. Does anyone know what they are called?

RE: Installing Inteli-Power 4600

Got it in. It works. When I started looking at this last year I thought I heard the talk about a jumper wire and I thought I would have to have my own wire to jump to the other circuit. You Don't. Simply cut the wire already in use. I gave up the manual features and I can't tell what phase it is in, but I got it in without having to pay someone $200. Now that I see how it works, I'll probably put the DC circuit board in later this summer.

RE: Installing Inteli-Power 4600

Pulled the Magnatek manual. Looks like the blue is umfiltered converter output, and red is charger output. I can run a jumper from the black wire in the new converter to where the blue wire attaches. I can run the green wire to the AC side and put it in a ground slot. http://www.hayseed.net/~jpk5lad/RV%20Information/MagnaTek%20Pwr%20Converter/RV%20Binder1.pdf

Installing Inteli-Power 4600

My original inverter is a Magnitek 6300 Q series. Im installing an Inteli-Power 45 watt converter. The wiring colors don't exactly match up, and I'm not going to be installing the new DC board at this time. Here is a pic of the DC wires out on the original board. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4270/34083763094_5ea89b3700_z.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4200/34116428573_abbf5bb2a4_z.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr My inteli-power has these wires coming out of the DC side. I believe the green is coming out of the DC side, but it isn't marked. The original converter only has a black and white coming out of the AC side. https://c1.staticflickr.com/5/4224/34763046932_c49e3e4184_z.jpgUntitled by jspringator, on Flickr Looks to me like the white on the new will connect where the white on the old connects, the black to where the red connects, and the green to where the blue connects. The blue looks to be a ground because it is attached to the board. Before I powered it up I wanted to check with the experts.

RE: Switch to Bumper Pull?

A 10-15 year old gas MH with 40,000 miles is pretty cheap. Get on ebay and see what they are really going for. Inspect it well, and do 3-4 thousand in maintenance (tires, shocks, Henderson bell cranks, sway bar bushings, rear axle brace, Sumo springs, 4 rolls of eternabond tape etc), and you will be good for 10-15 more years. I have an old p-32, and it took me a while to get it to handle well but I've got it straightened out and it is a great unit. Much easier to deal with than a TT. Generator starts at the push of a button. Traveling is much more convenient. My class a is more noisy than a car. I wear noise canceling ear buds.

RE: Switch to Bumper Pull?

What about a smaller motorhome? Mine is a lot easier to deal with than my TT was. I buy used so the financial hit wasn't that bad. Your truck will probably cover the cost of most of it.

RE: Eternabond as prevention

I like to use lacquer thinner applied with a cloth rag for surface prep. I've had some lift offs using acetone. Wear gloves.

RE: Magik's Class A

Did the dually spacers improve the handling of the motorhome?

RE: Address of beginning (Nashville) of Natchez Trace

Is there a Fly'n J, Pilot, Walmart, Cracker Barrel or other place to boondock somewhere fairly close? I'd like to get there Friday night and start the Trace Saturday.

Address of beginning (Nashville) of Natchez Trace

I'm trying to get Googla maps to route me to the beginning of Natchez Trace south of Nashville. Anyone have the address or name of a small city that will get me there?
