RE: Made A Mistake

Being on this forum and reading about the problems with RV's, I don't understand how you would even consider this unit unless you want problems and don't mind spending more money on top of the overpriced beat-up unit. Any transmission fluid that has coffee grinds is shot! Do yourself a favor and get a mechanic and rv friend to check out the next unit you are considering to save yourself a lot of headaches and bills!

RE: any nexus phantum 23 p owners

You need to just pickup the phone and call Nexus. The one thing they offer that most other manufacturers lack is building it the way you want. They will customize any component to your liking if possible, just call and ask!

RE: How to Repair Scuffed Gel-coat?

Thanks B.O.Plenty, they are small spots so I will try it by hand first then give it a waxing and hopefully get the shine back.

RE: How to Repair Scuffed Gel-coat?

I will try the polishing compound, can I apply it by hand or does it need to be applied with a buffer? Thanks! Dave

How to Repair Scuffed Gel-coat?

Wife saw some brown dots on the side of the motorhome that were tough to remove, so she used a green scrugie (I know,a big no no!) to remove them. Now I have several scuffed up spots on the exterior gelcoat and on some graphics. Is there anything I can do to get that high gloss shine back on those spots, I know I won't be able to repair the scuff marks on the graphic's. Thanks for any tips! Dave

Considering 21' TT w/slide & V8 SUV

After catarac surgery and now floaters after retina tears in both eyes which affect my vision, I am going to have to sell my Class C and am considering a 21' with slide with possibly a Dodge Durango 5.7L, Toyota Fourunner or Jeep Grand Cherokee all with V8's. Its the MH width that I am having trouble with at 101" whereas the TT would be 8 feet or less in width and easier to drive in narrow areas and construction zones (they are all over the place & too scary with tractor trailers wandering in lanes). I figured for safety I would try to stay under the tow capacity by 1800 to 2000 lbs and some 21' TT are around the 3500 lb mark. So I thought fully loaded to be under 5000 lb. and thus 1800 to 2000 lb under the 7000 lb limit of these suv's. Is this a reasonable set-up to consider? Thanks for your feedback! Dave.

RE: Hinge of flip-up TV door

When I had my class A, I removed the old tv and secured a 26" flat screen tv to the wood trim that was in front of the old tv. I Then installed a piano hinge I bought from home depot between the box that housed the tv and the wood trim on the side, this way I could open the tv mounted trim and use the inside for storage of dvd movies. I guess the hinge was about 1-1/2" wide and was plenty strong enough. I don't think you will have a problem.

RE: Why don't dealers want to order for customer request??

Contact Nexus RV they will build it the way you want! No middle men dealers to hassle with, you deal directly with the factory owners.

RE: Upgrade to 50amp?

I installed a duplex outlet and broke off the jumper so I could have one outlet on the MH power and the other outlet I have a 12ga cord that I use on posts that have the extra 120v outlet so I can plug in the hair dryer or heater without drawing on the 30 amp service when available. It was an inexpensive way to solve the problem for me.

RE: Non cabover class c rv's

I've had the same problem with passing in narrow areas as the wide body C width gets scary at times and with my deteriorating eye sight I may have to consider a B+ in the future for that reason. I wish some manufacturer would take the Sprinters narrower C house and place it on the Ford or Chevy chassis which would reduce cost and have an easier unit to handle.

RE: Non cabover class c rv's

One nice advantage to the B+ is that it's narrower than a C. Most C's are 100" to 101" whereas most B's are 7'6" to 7'8" making them easier to drive and park and you eliminate the famous cabover leaks because those B caps are one piece with no seams on most.

Poor Radio Reception?

I have a 2012 24' Class C unit. The dash radio is connected to the typical antenna next to the windshield and the radio on the exterior of the MH is connected to the tv cable. The exterior radio gets terrible reception as sometimes I can only get one or two stations if that. Has anyone had this issue and what did you do to correct it. Thanks, Dave

Question on Solar Power

I am considering installing the solar power kit from harbor freight 45 watt, 3 panel with charge controller. My question is, can I use the coach battery power while the solar power is charging the batteries? I wasn't sure if the charging voltage would affect the house side of the batteries during usage. Thanks for your responses! Dave

RE: Replacing Mattress with Foam ?

I thought about a topper but I would still have the lousy soft mattress as the foundation and it would raise the bed height too much for the DW to get into. I appreciate the feedback and will look into the Sealy and Verlo.

Replacing Mattress with Foam ?

I am considering replacing the cheap queen mattress with 4" or 5" thick foam. Has anyone done this? I sleep in the overhead buck and sleep great whereas my wife sleeps in the corner bed and says the mattress is too soft and she's right, no support. Where would be the best place to buy and what density if foam is preferred plus foam is cheaper than some mattresses. Thanks!

RE: Two adults comfortable in the over cab bed?

Check out the Nexus Phantom 25' C, it has a walk around queen bed. like many have said, it is tough having two full grown adults sleep in the overcab bed. Imagine having to go in the middle of the night and you have to climb over the person and get into position to climb down the ladder, could be disastrous or it gets old real quick.

RE: Need to buy a NEW entry level RV - Any suggestions ?

Another brand to consider is the Nexus Phantom 24P & 25P. The 25P has a walk around queen bed. Stronger construction than aluminum, azdel and crowned fiberglass roof, front cap which reduces the venerable leak area, larger overcab area and will build it the way you want. Check out their website.

RE: Cooler for Motorhome

I have 2 coleman xtreme coolers and they work great, definitely worth it for me.
