RE: Too many batteries?

Assume for a minute all 16 batteries were pretty well run down. I wonder how long it would take to recharge them and what kind of charging system they use. Those babies are gonna draw some current for sure.

RE: Allison Transmission

Pull a sample and change it to synthetic. It's One helluva lot cheaper to change it every 10000 miles than to buy a $6000 transmission and be sitting for a week in Yuma in 120 degree heat waiting for it to be fixed. Amen brother, Amen.

RE: Duel Fuel Class A

There are a lot of buses and trucks here in California that have been converted to run on propane. Many school buses and transit buses here in the Fresno area were converted. You can tell which buses have been converted because they put the tanks on the roof. In our area it was encouraged to help mitigate air pollution. The problem with it is finding a place to refuel.

RE: Roof AC units on, Roof fans/vents open or closed?

Also, when I am running the RV air conditioner while driving, I turn off the dash air conditioning. Less of a load on the engine and engine cooling system.

RE: Roof AC units on, Roof fans/vents open or closed?

Always close the roof vents and windows when you are running the air conditioning whether it be parked or moving down the highway. The air conditioners bring their air in from the interior of the coach. If you leave the vents open then you are drawing in hot air.

RE: wind sensor

I have had two electric awnings. The first one had a wind sensor that had a mind of it's own. When I bought my current coach I had an electric awning added and told them do NOT install the wind sensor. I am the wind sensor. We never leave the RV park with the awning extended. Ever. At night we bring it in.

RE: Soliciting comments 04 Safari Trek

You need to make sure the dash LCD display that tells you what gear you are in is working. It's made by Actia and I'm on my third one. Does it have Bosch brakes and, if so, has the brake recall be done? The transmission came with Dexron III fluid that had to be changed every 25,000 miles or two years. I'd suggest switching to Transynd. If the refrigerator is a Norcold 1200 you need to check if the safety recall was done on it. What year were the tires manufactured? If over 7 years old you may want to replace them. The 8.1 and Allison 1000 transmission combination is a very strong unit.

RE: Addomg Electric Mirors

I've heard horror stories of guys having to replace a broken mirror and spending over a $1,000 on one. I'll be curious to watch this thread and see what comes up.

RE: Need a small 12VDC heater

I have a similar problem and bought a pair of lined slippers that come up over my ankles along with using longer socks. I have a small 3' X 5' blanket I keep on my lap. I have plenty of heat in the front, however my wife complains it's too hot. Unless, of course she's cold, and then I can crank on the floor heat. But I like the idea of a small heater on my feet.

RE: Uncle Sam strikes again

Wheel tax??? Good Lord what will they come up with next. Do they tax you based on how many wheels you own? Wonder if it includes the wheels on your lawnmower and bicycles.

RE: Uncle Sam strikes again

What is the address listed on your insurance policy for the RV? I'm curious about that too.

RE: Trip to northwest

We went across the country on Highway 2 in August several years ago. Very nice. We were in our current coach pulling a toad.

RE: Oil capacity for dash a/c compressor

If the people that you expect to service do not have access to that information, I would not let them touch my equipment at all. Amen!!

RE: Driving when windy

Usually the earlier in the morning you leave the better it is for wind up until around 11 or 12 noon. If it's blowing you around a lot, slow down. Got caught in some high winds one time and all of us RVers had slowed down to about 35. In general if we know there is a bad storm front coming we delay our trip. Be cautious in cuts through the side of hills, the wind gusts seems to be stronger at those edges. I ran through a big dust devil one time. Holy cow it blew me to the right and then to the left in a second...Nothing I could do. Great fun...NOT.

RE: Traveling and camping in below freezing temps

Top off your propane tank. The furnace uses a LOT of propane.

RE: new to forum and RVing

When are you going? Right now Florida is pretty booked up with snowbirds. Do you know where in Florida you would like to visit? You'll love the roads in Florida, some of the smoothest I've driven on anywhere in the country.

RE: Posted Message Not Posted

I had that happen one time on a fairly lengthy post that I lost twice. After that I compose in Notepad or Word, then copy and paste for anything other than a short post. I do the exact same thing. Spend a lot of time writing a reply and it goes the way of wind-up windows.
