RE: Battery charge in storage?

We have used the battery maintainer for years. No issues to date. They are "smart" so they won't overcharge the battery. Less than $25 on Amazon. Enjoy your travels.

RE: LTV Free Spirit 2014 - electrical upgrades?

We looked long and hard at B vans recently with the same idea you have about solar and batteries. A local solar installation place said working on B vans after the fact is really tough. Running wires, finding roof space, etc. They suggested going with the factory installed systems rather than after market. It can be done of course. Contact AM Solar near Eugene, OR. They are as good as it gets in the solar field. Extra room for anything is tough in a B van. After you load up your "stuff", leveling blocks, lawn chairs, a bar-b-que grill, extra water hose, etc., there is simply no room left. Of course, going with AGM batteries helps because they can be inside as long as you can locate them near the existing batteries. The E-trek people are talking about, gets the extra battery storage space by eliminating the conventional generator. We finally decided on a 24' Class C. Lots of storage, lots of room for solar, batteries, etc. We both really liked the B van idea but for two boondockers, it just didn't seem to suit our needs. Others, of course, dearly love them. Either way, enjoy your travels.

RE: Black & Grey tank chemicals - What do you use ?

Use nothing. Not needed. Dump and flush . Simple.. If you are getting an odor problem vent tube may be compromised. We have never used anything. Same here. Been camping since 1976. Saved big bucks by doing it the same way.

Progressive. Excellent service on a recent claim.

RE: Winnebago / Mercedes Issues 2015 Navion 24G

I can't imagine that's not a MB issue. It's clearly part of the MB chassis. The mutual denial comes as no surprise. Nobody makes any money doing warranty repairs. I would press the issue with the owner/manager of the MB facility. Still no luck, go up the chain to the regional/ national MB people. http://mercedes-benz.custhelp.com/app/ask/session/L3RpbWUvMTQwODkwNjcyMi9zaWQvN0d6VlNGKmw%3D

RE: Windshield popping out

One I had years ago would flex enough under some leveling situations, to prevent the entry door from opening easily.

RE: Insurance on a new TT

I've used Progressive for a number of years. One claim and it was promptly and efficiently handled.

RE: Hardwood Floor Installation or ???

Pergo The Pergo type flooring is very commonly used and fairly easy to install.

RE: Towing through Eisenhower Tunnel

In addition, there are fairly frequent pull-offs should your TV begin to overheat. Which it won't, but just in case.

RE: Motor home plugged into house

I lived in South FL for many years. I simply kept all the roof vents opened (they had covers) and put that silver insulating material on all south and west facing windows and lowered the shades on the others. Never had a problem of any type. It gets hot, but nothing seems to get hurt.

RE: Any brands out there you would totally avoid?

For an independent opinion about any given make or model, look here. http://www.rv.org/ Yes. It costs money but compared to what you're about to spend its pocket change. OR You can read all the******being written here and learn nothing.

RE: Softer ride on 2011 PW Excel

I'm sorry I but it really don't understand what you're saying except its about a softer ride. A very common, and easy to fix, problem is tires inflated at pressures in excess of what's really necessary. Ideally you would weigh the rig in a "trip ready" condition then determine the best tire pressure. Lacking that, does the owners manual talk about that? Is there a sticker on one of the door posts about tire pressure? In the glove box perhaps? If this isn't what you're talking about, please restate your concern.

RE: What to do to correct dog agression to other dogs?

My daughter had a dog just like you describe. Probably spent over $1,000 trying to change the dogs behavior. No luck. The tips in the previous post are the answer. Keep her well away from other dogs. Forever I'm afraid.

RE: Do Ice Cubes in the Black Tank Really Work?

All the "secrets" work until the next time you use the tank. Then they all fail. Have at it but don't expect a miracle. As long as you use a system with sensors Inside the tank, the gauges will read on a hit or miss basis.

RE: 5th Wheel or a Class A

Having owned both, we prefer the motorhome. Setting up is so much easier. Stopping in transit and taking a break is easier. Need a bathroom break while driving? A snack from the frige? Just turn around, there it is. You'll get lots of opinions becaus both rigs have their strong followers. Either way, you'll enjoy your travels. It's a great lifestyle.

RE: Why its a good idea ot turn off propan ewhne no tin use

Some days just a bummer. No two ways about it. :(

A van dragging a small TT is a very popular combination for full-timers on a budget. The van provides lots of storage. Far more then you will ever find in a Toyota.
