RE: Shocks

Koni FSD are without a doubt the best shock made for a class A coach. I have upgraded to them on all three of the coaches we have had. The difference in ride is worth every penny they cost. Jim

RE: Solar panel height off roof

Most panel manufacturers recommend 2" space under panels. Jim

RE: Do you cross your safety chains?

Many hitches are not removable. That part is BS. Jim

RE: how to keep tow car cleaner

It will help if you add to your exhaust pipe so it is aiming to the side. This will help keep the exhaust residue away from your toad. Jim

RE: brakes for dinghy tow

Been using Ready Brake for the last 9 years. Inexpensive and works well. Nothing to put on the floor or store. Hook up and unhook in 30 seconds. What more could you want? Also available built into a tow bar. Jim

RE: Electric Blankets pros and cons

Jay, There are two types of inverters used in RV's. MSW and PSW. MSW means modified sine wave and are the most popular as they are lower cost. PSW is pure sine wave and they create power similar to what you have in your house. They are more expensive. MSW inverters will work on almost everything you may want to use it for in a RV but there are a few things that don't like the modifier sine wave. Jim

RE: 10K hitch on a 2007 Sportscoach Elite...No Longer?

Dennis, Freightliner says there chassis left the factory with a 10,000# hitch. It doesn't sound like he is trying to go into dangerous territory to me. I have the same coach with a 10,000# hitch. Jim

RE: 10K hitch on a 2007 Sportscoach Elite...No Longer?

They must have dropped the 10,000# one. The sticker on mine is still quite clear and not hard to read. I would give them a call and ask if they can still make you one. Jim

RE: 10K hitch on a 2007 Sportscoach Elite...No Longer?

If they are still in business contact Hidden Hitch and purchase their 10,000# hitch. If you get that far I can give you all the numbers from the sticker on my hitch. Jim

RE: Ford 7.3 Diesel...only 185 HP

Our first Motorhome was a 1986 27' class C on a Ford F-350 chassis with a 6.9. Talk about gutless on hills! It had a 3 speed automatic to boot. I added a aftermarket turbo kit and a Gear Vendors overdrive/underdrive as a underdrive along with 3" exhaust and that made a good driving setup. I did all the upgrade work myself- when I was younger (-: Jim

RE: How to keep cool while (partially) dry camping all summer?

There is not much you can do about the night but for the day a quiet generator (#1 Honda or #2 Yamaha) is your best bet. If you have one of those already you are out of luck. They have the quietest portable generators. Jim

RE: Electric Blankets pros and cons

There have been reports here that they do NOT like MSW inverter power if that is what you plan to power the blanket with. Jim

RE: Use of LiFePo4 batteries in RV?

FLA batteries have been the standard for a very long time and have worked well. Now we have available AGM batteries that come with the same dimensions as the commonly used 6v golf cart batteries (I have 6 of those)that have a longer life and will accept a very fast charge although there is a higher cost. Those two options will cover the RV market well for a long time. Until those batteries demonstrate that they are a viable finantially practical option I can't see them finding their way into the RV market in any kind of a large scale. Jim

RE: 10K hitch on a 2007 Sportscoach Elite...No Longer?

We have a 2005 Sportscoach-Elite. It is on a Freightliner XC-R chassis. It has a Hidden Hitch brand 10,000# hitch. If you have the same chassis I see no reason you could not upgrade to the same hitch I have. The R on the chassis ID designates raised frame. The frame is above the storage compartments allowing pass through compartments. Jim
