RE: 5th Wheel Bike carrier

My Swagman has a threaded bolt for the receiver that keeps it tight. I thought all Swagman's did. My Swagman has a Threaded Bolt,but no matter how tight you can get it there is still some movement in the receiver,the Hitch Rider eliminates all movement.

RE: 5th Wheel Bike carrier

All very good info,I also have a Swagman RV Approved, a very well made bike rack. Not to hi-jack the thread but as a side note that may be helpful. They bounce a lot and if the rack is not tight in the receiver that added movement only amplifies that bounce.Stressing not only the mounting point but also the bike rack. I have tried almost every Anti Rattle device on the market, most have been no good or so complicated and cumbersome that they are useless. I have a whole tool box full of them. Until I found the one at Hitch Rider. This will keep everything tight. Their Hitch Vice is the best and easiest one I have come across and it really works.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Marty Great Job!! Thanks for sharing your latest Mod,and the pictures of your handy work. I am sure that others here on the Forum that want to do the same will be helped by your informative post. Are These the ones that you installed? If so I will archive it all and keep it for future use in case others come along and want to do the same thing. No, I didn't see that model when I searched for what would fit a 2011 E-350/450. The model I ordered was the DeeZEE DZ2045 which lists the dimensions as 40x11x8. The one you found is the DZ1034 with dimensions 40x17x8... so a little taller mud flap??? and a little more $. Other than that I'm not sure the differences. When I get some time, I'll post some pics of the brackets, I didn't take any during the install cause I didn't want to get my phone dirty cause I had lock-tite all over my hands...lol Marty OK thanks for coming back with that,I see the one that I referenced, the DZ1034,looks like it would be wider, length 40'' x width 17''x 8''height. I am looking forward to the pictures of the brackets and your great write up and handy work.

RE: Ford E450 Class C Dash Emergency Battery Switch issues

OK! Does the wiring diagram in the Intellitec manual look like your setup? They may have used different components, but wiring maybe the same. OP: I looked at the photo that shows the splice. I doubt whether that is factory. The wiring diagram in the manual is the same as mine is wired.As for the splice I think it is factory installed,after peeling back some of the split wire loom I found the same material wrapping wire bundles and wire end connectors.

RE: Ford E450 Class C Dash Emergency Battery Switch issues

Ya that purple wire is a puzzler,both of my purple wires that go to the BIRD,as shown in the picture have spade ends on them. I will look tomorrow again and see if I can see a purple wire anywhere else that has a eyelet. I remembered something last night,and went and checked today. I could not get a good picture but on mine there is a purple wire with an eyelet that goes to the small terminal on the continuous duty solenoid. https://i.imgur.com/epfy4w2l.jpg While tracing it back I found that it connected with a yellow wire then went into the fuse block. https://i.imgur.com/8UXQF4al.jpg IAMICHABOD can you get a photo of your wiring diagram? does it have the colors of the wiring? Looks to be same drawing as I linked. Sorry I don't have a wiring diagram.

RE: Ford E450 Class C Dash Emergency Battery Switch issues

TO IAMICHBOD; Is your continuous duty solenoid a three or four terminal unit? I have a purple wire going to the bird AND an purple wire w/ eyelet that is lose/not connected to anything. My continuous duty solenoid has three terminals Like this one Ya that purple wire is a puzzler,both of my purple wires that go to the BIRD,as shown in the picture have spade ends on them. I will look tomorrow again and see if I can see a purple wire anywhere else that has a eyelet.

RE: Ford E450 Class C Dash Emergency Battery Switch issues

Hello and welcome to the Forum. I have a 2006 Fleetwood Tioga that has the same battery box area as yours,https://i.imgur.com/v35osrXl.jpg When I had the same problem as yours that the switch would not work and when the engine was running it was not charging the house batteries,after some testing I noticed that the continuous duty solenoid would click but not lock in which is a loud clunk. It is where those 2 big cables attach at the lower right of the picture. After replacing it the switchhttps://i.imgur.com/0wuXDYcl.jpg worked and the engine,thru the alternator,was charging the coach batteries. As for the purple wire, on mine that black box at the top of your picture is a BIRD.On mine a purple wire is connected to the Ignition terminal and one to the Relay terminal.https://i.imgur.com/aHjyyR7l.jpg I hope this helps,any more questions come on back and ask or PM me.Let us know if this works.

RE: Leveler (Stabilizer) Jacks on a Class C?

I see no reason not to,I have seen a few Class Cs with them but as mentioned you have to watch the ground clearance I did see one guy parked next to me who had a novel idea,he bolted the top pad to the frame then used pins Like These instead of bolts,said that he was tired of destroying them on driveways. He just popped under pulled the pins and stored the jacks,seemed to work for him.

RE: Raised toilet, what’s underneath

That is unfortunate,it may not work removing it. What I found with my late,vertically challenged partner,it was easier to raise the floor than lower the offending structure. Maybe Something Like This may work,small,portable,adjustable even comes with it's own bag. Good Luck,being 6 ft 6 and sharing the world with a person 5 ft 2 can sometimes be a challenge :B

RE: Reducing push/pull from tractor trailers passing

When an 18-wheeler overtakes your RV, it's bow-wave of air hits the left rear of the coach first, and that pushes the rear toward the shoulder. When the body rear moves right slightly before the rear axle does, it amplifies the push to the left that you feel in the front causing you to correct by steering to the right. As the 18-wheeler bow wave moves toward the front of the coach, it pushes the front of the coach to the right, and when the body moves right slightly before the front axle does, it amplifies the steering correction you have already done causing you to have to correct to the left. This whole thing, if you are not used to the feelings, can be quite scary. One way to overcome that is to install Vortex Generators like Air Tabs They cut down on the dead air and drag on the rear of RV and greatly reduce the bow wave of passing trucks. I have AIRTABS on my Class C. They really help on a cross wind situation,no more sudden buffeting. It has stopped the sideways push when being passed or passing a large truck. They are a vortex generator that produce a counter rotating air trail several feet behind the vehicle, This airflow alteration improves vehicle stability. As far a mileage it may helped some but the stability they provided is amazing.
