RE: 07 4 winds Majestic 23b Converter upgrade PICS

I did my conversion as detailed in the link I posted. I have never heard the fan run and I am not aware of any overheating, but I must admit that I haven't specifically looked for overheating. The 9260 has been around for a long time and maybe that is part of the reason for the cost differential???

RE: 07 4 winds Majestic 23b Converter upgrade PICS

The 4655 sell on Amazon for $217, and the 9260 for $170. 55vs60 amp and of course one is a board upgrade vs stand alone. Why the difference in price, and why not upgrade the 7155 with the stand alone unit? Not taking anything away from this OP just asking a question, the OP upgrade looks good and was neatly done from the pix. I replaced my Magnetek with the PD9260. The 4655 is a plug and play replacement. The 9260 requires considerably more work. Here is a link to the replacement directions.

RE: 12 Volt Electrical issue?

Have you checked for a fuse or circuit breaker in the wire from the battery to the converter?

RE: 07 4 winds Majestic 23b Converter upgrade PICS

Looks good! You and your mother will be happy with the new converter. The battery will charge much faster and should use less water.

RE: Draining fresh water tank

I sanitize at the beginning of the season. We use the water for everything, including drinking. MH has a whole house filter, which I also change each season. The water is the same as at home--never have had any problems with it. X2 I do the same. Never had a problem with the water.

RE: LED light bulbs and electricity savings question

You wont be able to see as well with LED lights. There just not bright enough for us.You will not see well with *some* LEDs. X I lost count. There are many different LED lights. Some are brighter than others. The 5050 LED is brighter than the 3528 (1210) LED. The more LEDs, the brighter. There can be a big variation between sellers. Generally, the more current it draws, the brighter the light. Always buy one or two to check them out before you buy many. Can be big differences in brightness and color regardless of what the ad says.

RE: LED light bulbs and electricity savings question

I can't imagine that changing to LEDs, even at eBay prices, will be cost effective based on 2 bulbs used for 2 hours a day. Putting a few numbers on this: Each 1141 draws 1.4A Each LED equivalent draws ~0.3A So 2 LEDs running 2 hrs save 4.4Ah/day, or 4.4 x 12v = .0528 kwh/day Based on that 1kwh/.0528 = 18.93 days So every 18.93 camping days you would save $0.12. How many days do you camp each year?

RE: led bulbs

I have also replaced all my interior lights with LEDs, all from China and bought on eBay. A couple of the early lights have had a row of 3 LEDs fail but the newer ones are working fine. The failures are in the soldered joints, not the LEDs. I don't think any LEDs are made in the US, all are made in China AFAIK.

RE: TV placement...

Here is a link to my TV install. The old CRT TV was in the cabinet over where the TV is now. We use the cabover space for storage so the lower position and adjustable placement is much better for viewing.

RE: What do you use as a Toolbox in your camper?

I use a small plastic tool box, about 12" x 6" x 6". I also have a socket wrench set about 18" x 12" x 4".

RE: Class C purchasing decision...

We use the over the cab space for storage. IMHO, its a poor place for an entertainment center, especially the TV. I put a little fence around the area to keep things from falling. The TV is mounted on a swing arm attached to the wall dividing the cab from the coach. Its comfortably viewed from the sofa or the galley area.

I see it now. Good thinking and a really nice job! Was Rickhuntfish on line when you saw the pic? Looks to me like he is hosting the pic on his own computer and maybe that is why you saw it while no one else did. :h

RE: 12 Volt Electrical issue?

I am not able to run the water pump and the furnace will not run. I do have interior lights, Lights work means 12 V system is working. That rules out batteries and converter problems. It just leaves fuses, doesn't it? Best to use a meter, ground the black lead and use the red to see if there is Voltage on the outgoing side of each fuse. Do your lights dim when you try to run the water pump or the furnace?

I wish I could see it, sounds good.

RE: Pantry drawer

To post a picture you have to use a host site, such as Photobucket, that is always accessable. Here is a link to using Photobucket for hosting pictures.

RE: slide out divider wall

I don't have a Holiday Rambler, but if the dividing wall is towards the middle of the slide I would guess it is supporting the roof of the slide. This is just a guess though. Hard to tell without seeing it.
