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

RE: Phoenix Cruiser or Nexus?

I would stay with Phoenix Cruiser, I think they are one of the top quality C builders hands down. I own a Nexus and wish I had bought a PC.

RE: E450 swivel seat

I thought about doing this for some time but after thinking about the price of the swivel and dealing with the tight area around the seat to get it to swivel I changed my mind. If I need another seat I just use a bag chair being I have room with a slide-out and I use the passenger seat to hold the clothes hamper. If I had a Chevy it would be easy being they have more room by the doghouse but the Fords are just too cramped.

RE: Flooded Almost!

I also turn the water off when I leave the site, except one time when I went to the camp store to get ice cream, I returned to find water coming out of my fresh water fill inlet. Found out the pump check valve went bad and allowed the city water to fill and overflow the fresh water tank. Remember Murphy is never too far behind!

RE: How do I stay under RAWR in Dynamax REV 24RB?

I looked at the pro master chassis based C's and was turned off by the towing and carrying capacity. They are basically for just light duty uses. They only tow a maximum of 2000lb. and I don't like the fact that you would carry your whole family and your house on single rear wheels, to nerve racking for me. There are no dealers in my state that want to stock the pro master MH's due to its limitations. Maybe that will change for the future.

RE: 26" LCD TV with DVD Player Power Draw?

Thanks guys for the info. It is for my Prowler which is up in the mountains and I can't access my campsite to check the label due to icy roads, and with no sun on my site until mid-March it will be a while before I can get there. That's why I went online but could not find anything with the dvd player. But thanks to you all I am going to purchase the inverter being its a low draw. Dave.

26" LCD TV with DVD Player Power Draw?

I have searched the web and owners manual but cannot find out how many amps my LG 26" lcd tv w/dvd uses with the dvd player on. I plan on buying an inverter but not if the tv/dvd uses to many amps. which I run off the generator now. I figured someone on here with a similar size unit would be able to tell me the amp draw while the dvd is on. Thanks!

RE: Question on Wiring Solar Panels with Power Inverter

I will be using the Renogy 30a multifunctional solar panel controller with lcd display. I am upgrading the controller to this one when I order the 200w starter kit. I'm glad to hear this setup will work. Thanks to all!

RE: Question on Wiring Solar Panels with Power Inverter

I have 3 group 24 deep cycle batteries, It will be for weekend use only. I plan to use it for a 26" tv once in a while and mostly smaller stuff when the generator is not on. I just heard its better to have more watts than needed so its not operating to close to max. output and will only draw from the batteries as needed for supply output. Hope this makes sense.

Question on Wiring Solar Panels with Power Inverter

I have an old 21' prowler travel trailer that is on a permanent site. I am going to install 2-100 watt solar panels which goes to the charge controller then to the battery bank. I am also going to install a Xantrex Prowatt SW 1000 pure sine inverter, my question is,is it ok to wire that directly to the battery bank? Will there be any power interference between the solar & inverter? I'm new to this off grid power and want to make sure I'm doing it right. Thanks in advance for any comments! Dave.

Nexus Bentley Video

Nexus finally has a video of the new Bentley Diesel Pusher on their website. Nice looking unit.

RE: Nexus 24P with slide on a Ford E-350

I have a 2012 Nexus 24P with the E450 chassis. I like having the higher carrying capacity,larger disc brakes for stopping and the wider stance of the E450, but I ordered it that way, I'm sure it will do fine on the E350 chassis. Which is the way the new models are coming through.
