RE: Shower Remodel

Thanks MountainAir05, I will check it out. The wife is the one that hates it more than I and yes, resale is a consideration be it a minor one as it doesn’t look like we will be staying in it very long. That said, probably not worth the hassle if we sell it in the next year or so.

Shower Remodel

We have been full timing in our 2022 Allegro Open Road since mid September. We are permanently parked for the time being in Palm Creek in Casa Grande, AZ. One thing we are disappointed with is the shower is a one piece fiberglass with a molded in seat and a three piece sliding glass door. The molded seat takes up valuable standing room so I was wondering if anyone has replaced it by cutting it out and replacing it with a tile shower and fold away seat that the higher end coaches have. I would also replace the sliding door with a swing open door. I think it would be worth the cost and add resale value. Thoughts?

RE: Dealing with Dealership in todays Market

We ordered our new Tiffin Allegro36LA on March 31, 2022. We negotiated a 22% discount at that time. With the way we optioned it the list was just over $229,000, we paid $180,000. Under normal conditions we probably could have gotten closer to 30% off. I’m more disappointed with the build quality then the deal.

RE: A/C Issues??

Thank you for your insight. I will be sure to mention it when they come to install the replacement.

RE: A/C Issues??

A/C update Service tech came today. Outside temperature was 58 degrees. Tech said unit was pulling 9 amps. Said it should be around 7. Recommending unit replacement. It’s under warranty so no skin off my nose but seems like an extreme resolution. Still going to invest in a set of window covers to cover the windshield and side windows. He was also able to quickly switch the wires on my Spyder control so the front and rear now operate properly.

RE: A/C Issues??

I have a more experienced tech scheduled to come out on the 10th. I’ll wait until he gets there and see what his findings are. I have zero confidence in what the other guy did and I told the mobile service manager that as well as whatever he used to measure temps was either no good or horribly out of calibration. At 81 degrees outside temperature this unit struggles to get the coach to 77 degrees. Just runs constantly. You just can’t find good help these days.

RE: Better handling

While driving cross country and also being a first timer I was able to anticipate the “push” from passing big rigs and steer slightly into it as the front of their vehicle approached mine. I had more issues with the surprise gusts of crosswinds that were occasionally encountered. That said, I agonized when we first purchased whether or not to add a Safety Plus or not and decided to see how it handled first before dropping $800-$1000. As of now I’m happy I kept the money in my pocket.

RE: Leveling Jack Creaking/Popping

Tiffin stopped using that brand this year and now use Lippert jacks. Fork oil is used in motorcycle forks and is recommended by Lippert as an additive to the hydraulic oil.

Leveling Jack Creaking/Popping

Having had our Open Road 36 LA for about 3 months now and aside from all the issues we have had with this unit so far, one of the most annoying things has been the creaking and popping noises from the leveling jacks while stationary. It became rather annoying and having read on various forums others having this issue I purchased some silicone spray and fork oil. Being the skeptic I decided to try these fixes to this issue and also decided to take it one step at a time. Last week I took each jack while deployed and wiped down each shaft and sprayed each with silicone spray. I then retracted the jacks and redeployed them. A week later, not a creak or pop to be heard. The silence is beautiful. I want to see how long this lasts before reapplying any spray or siphoning out a quart of hydraulic fluid and adding the fork oil. Hopefully this will be the cure and for once an easy fix.

RE: Better handling

We have a brand new 2022 36 LA with liquid springs on the rear. Having never driven a gasser without liquid springs I have nothing to compare it to but, we just drove cross country from FL to AZ and it handled very well. No mods were done to the front end. On good roads it drives like a dream. On bad roads like I-10, prepare to have your brains rattled a bit. This would be the only reason a DP would be better in terms of ride quality. Otherwise, still couldn’t justify the $70K extra cost.

RE: A/C Issues??

No repair was done and the mobile tech was from the dealer I bought it from. All ductwork in tact.

RE: A/C Issues??

A/C Update - Mobile tech came out today and checked amperage draw on the front unit and it was a little over 9. He said when it is working hard it will draw a little over 12. He measured the vent temp with a probe hooked up to his multimeter. I knew something was off as it measured ambient temp at 55.4 degrees and it was 74 in the coach. That said, it measured the cold air at 28.8 degrees, close to a 30 degree difference. My infrared measured 74 ambient and 44 at the vent so they agreed more or less. Still no explanation as to why a 15,000 BTU unit can’t get the coach below 85 when it’s 88 outside. I’ve ordered reflective screens for the front window so we’ll see what difference they make, if any. The tech they sent knew nothing about how to rewire the furnace controls so I will be getting another visit from someone who knows something and during the week so they can contact Tiffin. I looked at the panel in the front drivers side bay and nothing was marked “furnace”.

RE: A/C Issues??

I agree it wasn’t the right thermometer but it measured something at those temps. It was either the vent or the duct behind the vent. Furnace problem was simple. I turned the front furnace on and the rear one came on. The rear one turns the front one on. However they both still rely on their own respective temperature sensors. So they run on and on because the sensor in the front won’t turn the rear one off. The front touch control turns on the front a/c and the front heat pump but the rear furnace. The rear touch control turns on the rear a/c and the front furnace.

RE: Adam Graphine ceramic coating

I just had my coach washed and the guy was pushing a ceramic coating that he claimed would last 9 years. For $3800 for a 38’ coach I’ll just stick with a wash and wax every 6 months.

RE: A/C Issues??

Doug - thanks for your input. The digital thermometer I used is a Jumper digital thermometer. The “House” symbol indicates object measurement mode. It seems to be accurate with other similar type measurements. The readings I got were taken right at the vent with both a/c’s running. Although this is not perhaps the right tool to use it’s what I had and I doubt it would be 20 degrees off. I have the mobile tech from La Mesa RV coming next Saturday to fix my reversed furnace wiring and some other things. I will have them check both a/c units while they are here. I would imagine they have a more appropriate measuring device for the application.
Alex and Tee 11/16/21 04:30pm Class A Motorhomes
RE: A/C Issues??

Measurements done with a digital thermometer set on house mode. Will invest in some reflective shades for the front window. Front of coach is primarily black so I’m sure that isn’t helping much.

RE: A/C Issues??

Front measures 42.3 rear measures 44.1 at the roof vent. It is ducted from front to rear. Same fan speed on both. Seems to be equal air flow from all vents. 3 vents in the roof in front, 3 in the rear.

A/C Issues??

Brand new coach - 2 months old. In Casa Grande, AZ. Outside temp is 85 degrees. Both front and rear A/C’s are set at 75. Rear of coach is 74, front of coach is 84. All solar shades are down and windshield solar and night shades are down. Front of coach faces generally west. Do I have an issue with the front A/C unit? Do I need to cover the windshield better? Appreciate your input.

RE: portable water softener

We started out with the 16,000 grain On the Go unit. Knowing we would be spending most of our time in AZ it was a must have.

RE: New motor home blues…

Found another issue last night while in AL. Temps dropped to low 50’s so I sparked up the furnaces. Thankfully everything worked fine until…. the back was getting too hot so I lowered the temperature and went to bed. A few hours later nature called and I walked into the back bathroom and it was like a sauna, over 80 degrees! I went and turned off the rear furnace. About 3 AM nature called again and the back furnace was STILL running. I went up front to the main control panel and it was quite chilly. Then the lightbulb lit. I turned off the FRONT furnace and the BACK furnace shut off!! I turned on the BACK furnace and the FRONT furnace came on!! So, something is either mis-wired or the control is mis-programmed. On top of that, after two leveling jack repairs it now fails to level successfully. One or both rear jacks won’t ground. I give up until we get to our permanent residence at Palm Creek in Casa Grande, AZ and have the mobile tech make a house call.
