RE: Jumper for Batterys in Series

Actually, I believe you'll find that because the red jumper is so much shorter than the wires going to the converter/load, it can stand to be smaller in diameter. This effect is why extension cords need to be bigger as they get longer. X-2 Also after cleaning the corroded cable with baking soda and water put some dia-electric grease on them. Dusty

RE: best time of year......

Mid to late Feb. Because when you get back home the worst of winter is gone, spring is on the way. Dusty

RE: Wood hole - Water damage

I've never used it but there is a wood restorer on the market for treating rotted wood. Dusty

RE: Owners Info Package

Most of that info is the manuals for the appliances in the MH from the manufactures of each appliance. Dusty

RE: Tank help

Sounds like a hot water storage tank. It would make a larger amount of hot water. I've never seen something like that. Dusty

RE: 2016 gen ready install questions

It would be a lot easier to not put in an auto transfer switch but put in a receptacle, fed by the generator, and when you want to use the generator, just plug the power cord into it. An auto transfer switch is nice, but more costly, and more work to install. Also they have been know it give trouble. Dusty

RE: 2016 gen ready install questions

Be glad to help you, bring it over. Not sure what "generator ready" means. Does it have a transfer switch, or a receiptcial to plug the generator in when you want to use it ? What size generator ? Or does "generator ready" just mean that there is a generator compartment ? Dusty

RE: Am I nuts?

If you do but a used mh you might decide to keep it. Nothing wrong with that.

RE: Which Class C Should we buy and why?

The biggest problem is your wanting to pull a car on a trailer. Almost all of the smaller class C's have a tong weight of 500lbs. or less. You may need a super C. We haul our car on a trailer because we have the trailer that we also use for other things. Used it on winter to take car to Florida and back. Had a friend talk me into going to a weight distribution hitch. that worked much better. Also after that first year I started using straps around the car tires. That works much better than trying to lash car down by hooking into the slots in the frame. Dusty

RE: Traveling with a scooter on Class C

Twice while we've seen a car be towed with a dolly and a motor cycle on the dolly in front of the car. Dusty

RE: Normal and Maximum Tire Tread Temps?

I once rented a tandem axel trailer to haul a 3000# + farm tractor. After driving many miles I checked the tires with my radiant temperature tester. One tire was 30* hotel than the other 3, and I found it was 30 lb. lower than the other 3.

The SeeLevel monitoring system is a nice system. Put it on our last mh, and have one for our new mh, but haven't got it on yet. Dusty

RE: Electric heaters

What I've done in our last 2 mh is install an electric toe kick heater. They are basically a small electric furnace. I even put programable t-stats on them. They work much better than the portable heaters, and they don't get in the way, just don't park something in front of them.

RE: Maxxair vents covers-worth it?

I installed a MaxAir cover over my automatic FantasticFan, and had to take it off. The lid on the fantastic fan hit the underside of the MaxAir dome and wouldn't allow it to completely open. Since it wouldn't completely open, the limit switch on the fan wouldn't allow the fan to run. Removed the MaxAir dome and replaced it with a FantasticFan dome, and it works fine. That is strange. I have two Fantastic Fans with the Model 800 Fan Mate covers and the fans work perfectly. Yes, the lids do hit the underside of the MaxAir dome but the fans work just fine. They open and close just as they were designed to do. On mine, the motor starts/stops running just as the fan lid leaves/reaches the bottom and is ready to seal. Perhaps your limit switch is positioned a bit differently than mine. Barney Here is the one I have(bottom one). http://i.imgur.com/dCdE70pl.jpg We had one like pictured, in our old mh that we traded in, but the fan and motor was at the outlet of the hood. Anyone know where we can get one like that. Dusty

RE: Generator

The fuel pump is electric and you can add a switch to the wire going to the pump, and then turn it off while the generator is running. Then the carb will run out of gas. I did this to our '03 mh, ti work very well. Dusty

RE: Generator

By prime I assume you are talking about holding the stop until the fuel pump runs. When doing so continue to hold button and listen pump, it is filling carb bowl and the sound of it will change when bowl is full, then release button. Now start generator.

RE: Maxxair vents covers-worth it?

We put on a Maxair on our new '03 Itasca that was about 175* elbow with a fan in the out word end. The fan was a reversable 3 speed with a t-stat. That was a nice unit. Last year we bought a new mh and I went to get another Maxair unit like the last one, and found that they were no longer available. Very disappointed, We still want one. Dusty

RE: What do you use to raise height of your chairs?

We have just purchased a 2017 Sunseeker MH. The driver and passenger seats can turn completely and face the back of the unit. This is similar to the seats in a Class A. Unfortunately the Class C has these seats in a stepdown portion of the cab so it's like sitting on low beach chairs. The dealer showed us some bolster cushions but they wanted $175 for each. What do you use to raise the height of your seats? Thanks. Are you sure the bolsters the dealer showed you were not the ones the factory supplied with you unit. On some Winnebago models that have this issue Winnebago supplies bolsters. Maybe a call to the factory would help. Dick We were offered some cushions from Winneabgo, by the sals man put they were about $50.

RE: Back up and Side View Camera Systems

My brother-in law has a pickup that has a camera in the tail gate. It is a rather wide angle and has a pair of shafts of light that show on the monitor where the pickup will be, when backing up. And the light shafts are 3 color, green-yellow-red, so you know how close you are.
