RE: Need Help on Battery Type for Solar ?

Thank you all for your responses! I will definitely go with the golf cart batteries and know that when power is down I have no problem running the generator with or without battery charger to bring the battery bank back up. I just wasn't sure which batteries would do the job better and now I know! :)

RE: Need Help on Battery Type for Solar ?

It would be for the water pump, lights, inverter for tv, charging phones and cpu. What more do you need?

Need Help on Battery Type for Solar ?

I am considering the Renogy 300 watt solar kit, my question is which battery set-up listed below is the best one. I am limited on space and can only fit what I have listed, thanks for your help! 4-group 24 lead plate deep cycle batteries, 3-group 27 lead plate deep cycle batteries or, 4-6 volt golf cart batteries wired to make 2-12 volt batteries. Thanks, Dave

Silicone or 3M 5200 caulk for Wood to Aluminum Roof?

I have a stationary trailer at a site and I plan on adding a room. I need to add a 2x4 ledger flat on the aluminum roof of my old '78 Prowler. My question is which one would be better as an adhesive, silicone or 3M 5200 caulk? Thanks in advance, Dave

RE: Levelling the RV

I carry the orange plastic blocks along with pieces of 2x8 that are cut at a 45 degree angle to make it easier for the tires to ride up on. I mostly use the plastic blocks except where you encounter soft soil conditions then the wood is better because the open web of the plastic blocks sinks into the sand. I have everything fit into the plastic crates for ease of storage. I also use a level on the floor then raise the level so the bubble is in the middle and multiply the height difference that tells me how much I have to raise the MH.

RE: Our inspection or the Dealers?

"The vehicle looks to be in very good condition" doesn't mean anything and dealers only want to sell. Definitely get your own inspector and have him check everything thoroughly inside, outside and underneath and operate every appliance because once you leave the dealership it will be on you.

Radio Power Feed Question

The only radio in my C is in the dash. I was thinking about installing a 2-way which would control the power to the radio either from the chassis battery or house battery when I'm camping. Has anyone done something similar this? Thanks, Dave

RE: Can Crusher

An answer to your question. I have one home and one at my site. I bought the ones from harbor freight. I use a door hinge as a mount, I cut a large one down to the width of the crusher this way the pin is easy to insert and remove and by chance the hinge holes line up with the crusher holes. I mount one to the crusher and one to a stationary object. Then all you have to do is line up the hinges and insert the hinge pin, easy to install and remove. Works great for me!

RE: Slides and Driver Seat Position

I have the dinette slide on the drivers side and when it's in, at 5'11" I barely have enough room. I don't know how the taller/larger drivers get by. This is on a 2012 E-450.

RE: Can Foam Cushions be Glued Together?

I have some extra cushions so I have the foam already and have enough material to cover it, just have to buy the adhesive. The cushions I checked out online do not have the dimensions I need so by making it I can cut it to the size I need. But thanks for the info!

Lots of options, thank you all!

Can Foam Cushions be Glued Together?

I have a dinette which I stack pillows against the wall to form a triangle to lay against when watching tv. The pillows constantly slide out and I was thinking about making a triangle wedge to place in the dinette to create a lounger, wanted to know if foam cushions can be glued together so I can cut the large wedge I need? Thanks for any feedback! Dave

RE: New Class C's don't come with cab carpeting now?

My 2012 ford chassis also did not come with cab carpet, but my 1997 did. So I had to buy one to fit it. As they say you pay more and get less these days.

RE: Cab over bunk ladder?

I installed a patio door handle on the slide-out trim, made a step pad that slides down on the corner dinette support and then a step stool. Very easy to get up and down while holding the door handle.

I had 3 full pages of problems on a new unit, unfortunately quality control is the number 1 problem with this non-regulated industry and we end up being the final inspectors at our cost!

RE: What was your first newbie moment?

Was at the factory having some work done and just finished giving some newbie's some tips. We left to get a bite to eat. Not in my normal camping pack up, left the parking lot and going 50 mph down a 4 lane highway my wife suddenly says "Oh $hit the awning is out" I quickly pulled over and retracted it and said "I just wanted to keep the sun out of your eyes" well we had one heck of a laugh over dinner after she calm down. When we returned to the factory the newbie's I spoke with said they were trying to chase me when I was leaving the parking lot, I told them I was doing a wind test on the awning!

RE: I thought it was over

I also bought LED's from ebay and had a few go out, fell apart and left a terrible smell. I guess these cheap bulbs can't take a wide voltage spike.

RE: Ever had your mirrors hit by a pasing truck?

When I had my class A, the ferry parking guide waved me closer and closer to the side wall until the mirror hit and fell off, he then walked away between the cars.

Ford E-450 Coachmen Concord Swivel seats ?

I noticed the new Coachmen Concord on the Ford E450 chassis has front swivel seats. Wanted to know if any owners that have this model know if they are the stock seats and if there was a manufacturer and model number on the swivel seat bases? Thanks, Dave
