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: Looking for a HONEST RV mechanic shop in Sacramento

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.

RE: Driving a Class C on Snow and Ice

That sounds like a disaster waiting to happen. Once you start sliding down a hill you can kiss your investment goodbye.:h

RE: Headers for a 1988 Ford 460 engine

I installed Gibson Headers from Summit Racing on my '96 460 which I believe are cheaper than Doug Thorley. Then installed a flowmaster exhaust system.

RE: dynamax rev

I wonder with all that weight on single rear tires, would you still be able to control the MH if a rear tire blew out? A least on dual rear you still have the other tire.

RE: 52yo guy solo c?

Let me know which campground turned you down so I can make sure I never stay there. That's horrible!

RE: 24 - 26 Foot Class C Comparable to "Coach House"?

I also agree with magnusfide, Phoenix Cruiser.

RE: Do you exercise your generator in the winter?

I try to run mine every month for about a half hour under load, keeps the fuel moving through the carb and the heat helps remove moisture and condensation build-up.

RE: Windy nation solar

I have researched between the 2 and went with Renogy for product quality and customer service.

Last Class C and Slide-out!

This will be my last class C and slide out. After reading all the horror stories on here and elsewhere about the inevitable famous cabover leaks including my dads class C I will never buy another one. After reading about all the long threads with slide-out problems including my own after being in the shop 3 times in 2 dealerships which is still not right I will never buy another one. We all work hard to lay out serious money for substandard quality and no one to accept responsibility for it. For the second largest investment we make it shouldn't have to be this way. I hope my next unit is a B+ with no slide so I can have more time enjoying the MH. Thanks for letting me vent!
