RE: Towing 6,500 pounds with a class C

Not recommending this but just my experience...I have a 2002 31ft class C,E450,V10,air bags with 30 lbs. air.Myself and a couple friends go on 2 trips a year,for many years,averaging 1500 miles a trip,sometimes more.The three of us are at least 750 lbs of meat and the RV is loaded for bear.The boat weighs approximately the same as yours,175 lbs of tongue weight.Never had any real issues.Backing the rig at the ramp is way easier than people think.Guys freak out thinking we will tie up the ramp but we're usually faster than everybody.Anyway...Brakes are the biggest thing.Make sure the trailer and chassis brakes work correctly.Don't take any chances with tires and check pressures frequently.You won't pass anybody going up hill but find the gear and keep the V10 wound up.To sum up,this rig goes good and stops good,and it's done it for many miles under many different conditions.

RE: HVAC - No Compressor run

To add to what Doug said,if the compressor relay is bad,replace board.right?You probably know that the boards aren't that cheap. I had multiple relay failures(freeze sensor was bad and cycled the compressor every few seconds). and got tired of buying boards.So...if you have soldering ability,you can get the exact same relay on eBay or other places for a couple bucks and fix your board.Desolder,solder...really easy.

RE: Looking for a good deep cycle battery charger

Mike,if it's listed as a "marine" battery,it will be the wrong battery. For your application,you need a straight deep cycle.

RE: Water system for 1999 Coachmen Santara

I don't think there is a tank drain.You have to pump the water out. Your water tank is probably full and the water running out of the bottom is from the tank over flow. Figure out which way you need to turn the valves to make the pump operational,drain the tank if you want,leave the valves where they are,hook up the hose and you will have city water.

RE: Old automotive battery charger question

Kinda off topic but I used to do business with Voltmaster Battery(now Deca) in Corydon Ia. and these guys told me that,at least twice a year,charge the **** out of a deep cycle for 12-15 hrs on manual.Claimed the battery will last twice as long.From my experience,I would say they are correct.Supposed to knock sulfates off the plates.

RE: Strange noise from engine..."Whirling" sound

One of the belt idler or tensioner pulleys going bad.If that is the case,it's cheap and easy enough to fix but complete failure will leave you stranded.

RE: Old automotive battery charger question

I have a 10 amp manual-automatic 6-12V charger similar to Gdtrailer's.I don't know if you would call it "old school" but I bought it in approx 1980.General opinion is you can't leave them hooked up 24-7 like a smart charger.In the auto mode,I can leave mine hooked up as long as I want as the charging rate drops to zero when the battery is fully charged.It will also charge up a stone dead battery.
