RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I don't have the slide out tray. I just crawl in. I'm 6 foot 200lbs. I can almost turn around in there. I just spent a few hours in there doing my inverter. Although if it's close to the back I sit in a chair and lean in.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I also took out the auto transfer switch. I'm not sure why I even had one. I didn't order a gen set. This is my 8th RV in 24 years. Except for the 2 diesel pushers, none of them came with decent converters.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I went with an AIMS 4k inverter. It has a 3 stage smart charger and an auto transfer switch. Also has a control panel I could mount inside and has some good info displayed on it. Pics will be coming. THANK Bedlam for all the pics.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

I think the cab over in my Host is huge. I am 6 foot and I have a lot of room above my head when sitting there. I really like the up graded escape hatch Host uses. I installed the 4k inverter this weekend. Love it. I can run my fridge or hot water on electric going down the road. I'll try and send Bedlam some pics to post(LOL). It will run the AC or fireplace also.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

They must have gone with the double latches shortly after your build. After you mentioned that, I did remember seeing the first Hosts with just one latch. The black tank flush has been an unlisted option for the last couple of years and is now standard. zb39 has the flush with 2017 graphics on his Mammoth. I also have double latches on the basement storage. I do not have the slide out tray.

RE: Big Bend NP in summer

RE: National Parks June/ July... A/C needed?

I'm from PA and have done a number of trips like that. GO FOR IT! I did Alaska in 5 weeks from PA, had a ball. Don't let the retired crowd get you down. Those of us that still work need to just go and do it.

RE: Getting INVERTER power to all existing outlets

I'm installing a 4k pure sine wave inverter. It has a built in transfer switch and a 3 stage smart charger. It will power the whole coach, including the AC or the fireplace. Although I would't run either of those for long with it. To easy to start the honda 2k. I will be removing the converter/charger and the auto transfer switch that came with the TC.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Bedlam, thanks for posting the pics. What do you hear on yours? Seems like they are getting ordered or coming in fast right now. Maybe spring is coming. I'm happy with the way the batteries went in. I should have a ton of power when boon docking now. I will still carry at least 1 2k honda. Still waiting for 4k inverter.

RE: Border Crossing

I would never let them search your RV unless you are present. You are asking for trouble if you do that. Canada tried to do that the last time I crossed. I said no way. The "lady " and I had a few words and then her boss stepped in and told me to get in the rig and go. I was with my wife and 2 small kids. She was very rude about everything, her boss not so much. We have not been back since.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Over the weekend I installed the 6 6 volt batteries. 4 in the gen compartment and 2 in the batt compartment. That's cool. I'm assuming you ran your plan to put four batteries in that compartment by Host. Am I right? Yes, you are correct. There is even more room in there. But 4 batteries in enough weight in there.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

Over the weekend I installed the 6 6 volt batteries. 4 in the gen compartment and 2 in the batt compartment. They work great. I also ordered my 4k pure sine wave inverter. Will get that installed as soon as it shows up. I will try to get some pics up also. I also had requests for pics of the roof. I will send those in also.

RE: Replacing converter/charger, adding inverter and more

Grab some 6 volt golf cart batteries at sams and then add a 2 or 3 k inverter. I just put 6 batteries and a 4k inverter in my truck camper. It's not that hard.

RE: Ordered Host Mammoth

We like the table a lot. If you make sure all 3 locks are on tight it will really tighten the table up. It feels much looser when they are undone and the table slides around. The double couch with the high/low table was a must have option for us.
