RE: Put the motorhome on consignment

Check in a lot and if they can't show you that it's getting nibbles, have a second plan. My Dad put his on consignment and the dealership used it to bring in business - but then pushed their own RVs for the sale. PPL only has consignments

RE: AlbanyRV/RVone should I feel disappointed or ripped off?

When I purchased my gas class A at Flagg RV in RI. The deal was to put all new tires on. A date was set for me to drop off my 5er that I was trading and pick up the A. Drove there unhooked fiver then off to have a look at the one we purchased. All looked good until I crawled under the coach to discover they didn't put new inside tires on only the outside dual and front. My wife flipped out in the office with other customers in there then asked our salesmen Ralph for the paper work. Ralph was like why do you want to make a change. My wife no I'm ripping it up. Ended up they took $2,000.00 off the deal for me to get two tires.

One last battery question

I'm going to keep the rv the way it came with 12v 8ds. I can get deep cycle 8ds cheaper than regular 12v. Soooo my question is...is it ok to use deep cycle for starting battery?

RE: Battery replacement

Still not shure what way to go. Cost wise the 12v deep cycle is cheaper by $56.00 for the batteries plus I will need to add in two core charges and a few cables to go with the 6v. Also the 12v fits like a glove in my battery compartment. Using the 6v it is perfect fit length wise the width will be 4 inches less. I guess I could put a 2x4 between them. As for the weight I can still pick them up. Uh, Why would you have to add in two core chargers? The fact is there are NO SIX VOLT BATTERIES in RVs (oh yes folks I know I have a pair of them myself) What you have is a 12 volt battery (A 4D if you wish to know the size) that is made up of two Six Volt batteries.. You wire them in series like this Bat-ery And you treat them like this Battery As though they were a single 4D, one charger, No special anything. they form a big 12 volt battery. I often see questions like "Can I replace just one" or "Must they be the same size" Well, would you buy a 4D that was half new, half old, Or half 4D half something smaller? Thinking of the pair as though it was a single 12 volt battery.. Very simply answers these questions. HOWEVER: That said: 56 dollars cheaper for the big 12 volt .. now that is a sales point.. I agree with cheaper :) GO FOR IT. Thanks for the reply. As for the core charges I will onlly have two 8Ds to trade in and will need four 6v golf car batteries. Won't they charge me two core charges?

RE: Battery replacement

I'm going to keep the 8ds for starting. Just not shure what way to go on the house side.

RE: Anyone deal with shop4seats.com?

I am in California lLA area currently and called to see if I could stop by and see a sample and was told they are a factory only and have no samples . ( by I believe the same Ashley ) I wanted to look because on another forum ( can't find the link now) someone said the got it and the frame etc was cheaply done and might not last long ( material construction) and didn't sound to satisfied .. That said , they seem to look good on the website!! but I'm cautious and that's why I didn't recommend . I hate to spend 1500-2 grand and have little recourse .. Shipping back would be high. If you could find that link, that would be great! Maybe This one

Help me buy some batteries

As of now I have two 8D chassis batteries and two deep cycle 8D house batteries. I can fit four of These in place of the two house 8Ds. We don't boondock much but is that a better set up. Will I need to make any changes to my inverter/ charger if I switch?

RE: Battery replacement

Where some of you people get your information is highly suspect, but I did do a whole lot of electrical upgrades to performance cruisers (these are usually retired racing sloops), and ALL 8D are about 170#. A single 4D is only about 130. While I don't know what you are starting, but if it takes more than one 8D, figure out what you are doing wrong. As a licensed ship's engineer, I know what it takes to start an engine. Matt Country Coach installed 2-8D chassis batteries and 2-8D house batteries along with a single 12volt for the generator. The motorhome engine is a detroit series 40

RE: Battery replacement

While a 8D battery might 'seem' heavy at 120 pounds, these I see are 163 pounds. I hope that you have some strong friends to help install them. Also it shows that you googled them. Can you pick them up nearby, or do you have to drive a long ways? Most shippers do not handle batteries, as when the tip or leak, they become a huge problem. AGM batteries will not leak, perhaps that is why they can be shipped. However packages over 100 pounds are not shipped by places like UPS, unless they are on a pallet. If the L6 terminal is your standard car size battery terminal then it should work out well. Yet if it is a 3/8" bolt type terminal, it might be a little small for the starting amperage to go through it. Being designed for primary standby use, it might have either terminal. . . I happen to like golf cart batteries, with a 220 amp hour capacity in two easy to lift 67 pound packages. I run Trojan T-105 batteries. Trojan is another popular battery supplier. Check your local golf cart company, they might be able to supply your batteries, and by adding your 4 batteries to their order, it can bring them into a special pricing - because of the larger value order. Normally Trojan delivers on their own trucks to many locations. Good luck! Fred. Would two of these be equevellent to two of the 8Ds? http://i.imgur.com/o6FB5Yxl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8

RE: Battery replacement

You don't need deep cycle for the chassis. Their primary purpose is to start the engine. I know but for some reason the deep cycle are a little cheaper.

Battery replacement

I have four 8D batteries now. Two chassis and two house. Is it ok to get deep cycle for all four? Was looking at something like this. The chassis batteries I have now are 1440 cold crank amps. These are a little less at 1370cca http://i.imgur.com/5ogyvHAl.jpg "border=0" http://bit.ly/1CIRlV8
