RE: Leveling class C

Here is another link for the Hoppy levels that are in stock.

RE: Leveling class C

I have used Hoppy Levels for many years. Mount them where you can see them from the drivers seat and choose the most level spot you can find. Then place leveling blocks as indicated by the levels. Install them initially by leveling the refrig with a carpenter's level, then mount the Hoppy levels

RE: Ford Dealers Won't Service E-450

When I bought my Chevy based MH I ran into the same problem. I found a local truck garage that welcomed me and he has had my business ever since. I have seen quite a few Class A and C MHs there.

RE: Power Outage

If you turn the GFI off do the receptacles that are working now turn off? If they do you probably have another GFI, or there is a wire disconnected. If they stay on, then the GFI is probably powering the receptacles that are off and the GFI is bad.

RE: suburban furnace won't start

I would check the voltage at the furnace before I did anything else. Your OP said it worked when you first reinstalled it, then quit. Maybe the battery recovered enough to run it for a short time before the voltage dropped.

RE: Cool Mods - Thread restored 10/18/2012

Nice job! Did you put some latches on the doors to keep them closed on tight turns?

RE: Planning to tow a 2013 Subaru Crostrek

We use a valet key. It came with the car.

RE: RV insurance

I am insured with AARP through The Hartford. My MH, Subaru sedan and Ranger pickup cost me under $1900/year.

RE: Planning to tow a 2013 Subaru Crostrek

If you are using a brake system that uses power from the car you will have to set the key to the next position that turns the cig lighter socket on. On mine it is position 2.

RE: suburban furnace won't start

It doesn't sound as if your converter is the problem. The converter provides the 12+ voltage to charge your coach battery when plugged into power. It also powers the 12v items in your RV. If you are worried about it check the battery voltage when plugged in and when not plugged in. The battery voltage should be higher when plugged in. How much higher depends on what converter you have.

RE: dingy

I second the Subaru but living in the flat lands you probably don't have much use for the 4WD other than if it snows. It does have other advantages though, no limits on speed or distance.

RE: Driver's license requirements & residency

I can't speak for other states but Vermont does not require a special license to drive an RV. AFAIK, other states also do not.

RE: Power inverter installation

Way, way, way out of line. If you have any DIY skills, or a friend that does, its a simple job. I you do negotiate a reasonable price with the dealer make sure he installs a good Pure Sine Wave inverter, not a piece of junk.

RE: replacing kitchen faucet?

Replaced ours years ago. We needed adapters to connect the pipes to the new faucet. The hardest part was getting access to the underside of the faucet. As someone else said, measure the spacing of the old connections and make sure the new one will fit.

RE: Camping Buddies

I didn't read all the posts so maybe someone already said this. You could try joining the local Good Sam Chapter. We joined our local chapter and found people of all ages. They have campouts each month during the camping season and meetings during the winter.

RE: leveling jacks

I have never had leveling jacks on my class C. My Hoppy leveling gauges tell me how much I have to raise each corner so I put the appropriate blocks in place and drive up on them. Works for me. The rocking that some people have mentioned has never bothered me.

RE: battery monitor

As others have said, a voltmeter alone is not a battery monitoring system. IMHO, a voltmeter and ammeter would be the minimum. If you can find the space to have a monitoring panel, you can buy inexpensive meters on eBay and mount them in an easy to see location. Here is my monitoring panel. There is a 12v voltmeter and ammeter and a 120vac volt/ammeter. You can find many other examples in older posts. http://i.imgur.com/Ge61JBgl.jpg

RE: Fleetwood jamboree charging system problems

How long is the cycle time from low voltage to high voltage back to low voltage, and what are the voltage extremes at the battery and the converter? Is it a sudden change or a slow change? Could be a battery problem or a converter problem, or maybe something else???

RE: Exercising Generator

During the summer I use it often enough that I don't have to run it for exercise very often. In the winter it depends on the weather. I don't shovel it out so I exercise it when the snow and the temperature allows. This winter I only exercised it once, too cold. Don't forget to check the oil.
