RE: Propane tank

Lift the tank and judge the weight. That will give you a pretty good idea of how much is left. If you want to some simple math like I do for my 1 Gallon Cylinder and my larger cylinders I use This I know how much the empty cylinder weighs and propane weighs 4.2 lbs a gallon,more or less. Just weigh it and see.

RE: Can you buy new what CA rents

If I understand your post the both MH's are built to the same specs, having the same construction processes the same components, the only difference's are some components that are likely to fail are eliminated. Is that correct? Yes that is what I have observed. I seems that about 8-10 years ago CA deleted the rear window and the window in the door. I would say that the non-ducted A/C would be cheaper too and of course no awning. I was told that the rear window was the first to go as it got broken often, it was an escape window that was opened and dropped. The escape window on the newer ones is on drivers side. I have a member of my extended family that has a Former CA rental,it has a rear window and it has a window in the door,it also has a Ladder on the rear that I suspect was added by the PO.

RE: Can you buy new what CA rents

Depends who you ask. True,you can buy the same 28A Thor/Fourwinds.But the ones that are made for CA are built to their specs,and they delete some things that you will get on a production model. Window in the door,no ducted A/C,no rear window,TV antenna,among other things.I have been in both and the build and components and construction seems to be about the same. Here is a Former Rental from El Monte RV. It is the same as a CA unit EXCEPT a few things that I noted and a much nicer interior. I will note my Former Rental from El Monte RV,a Tioga 26Q build sheet clearly states it is a commercial unit. It is the same as far as all the construction and components that all the others that I test drove that were non Rental.

RE: RV damage and repair fix help

Might be a silly question, but when it comes to measuring for the right size, is there a specific way to measure? Is it from the inside of the opening or outside? Not silly at all,if you are replacing the lid that you had in the picture. No need to measure at all.The opening on them are all the same and the replacement lid will fit. The only thing to worry about is to get the right hinge type by using the picture on the list posted.

RE: Leveling a Class C?

I have been using the Tri Levelers for more than 10 years and found that the steps are sufficient to sit level and stable on. As noted when on the leveler just putting the RV in park and setting the parking brake at the same time will keep it from moving,in all these years I have never had a problem with any movement. I had a set of wood ones I made up for my previous RV, as pictured above,I found that they were VERY heavy about 24 Lbs each, and hard to stow taking up way to much room.That is why I went the way I did with the Tri Levelers,light weight,easy to stow and I have yet to find a spot that needed any thing larger.

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

Thanks for quick reply. OK - will look into getting the Awning. On our previous pop-up trailer we hardly ever used awnings (mostly because it was a pain to zip back in) so I am wondering if it would be good investment in this case. How easy are they to open/close? (I understand it is manual but still). To answer your questions - Newark, CA location and yes there is a barely noticeable shadow. And good point - I missed to list that as one more thing you miss getting pre-refurbished (also, I was told that 1 month and 3 month warranty only comes with refurbished models - so that is another benefit of refurbished model I missed to list). Another quick question: Get roadside assistance from Progressive (about $25 a year) or Good Sam (about $99/year after first year special of $49 now)? I found that the awning was good for me and I use it often,it is not all that hard to use and deploy and retract,most times I do it myself. There are many YouTube videos on it This One is just one example. It is like the one I have and most likely what will be offered. That warranty that they give at purchase of a refurbished one is not very long,it use to be 1 Year or 12000 miles, I think that is why the push very hard to get the extended one,and if it saved you money and you are handy it may be the better deal for the way you went. As for the roadside assistance, that is up to you,a lot of people do go with Good Sam with varying results.They do have a Sub Topic here on the Forum where you can get pretty quick answers. Me I just added it to my AAA roadside for an extra $36 per year. I have had AAA for a looong time and all the times that I have used it the service was exceptional. If there any mods you want to do just ask,there are many that others have done and I have archived,like the window in the door or suspension up grades,if not here just PM me. Good luck with this all and have a great camping season,nice thing about here in CA it is year round!

RE: Changing refrigerator cooling unit...New or Refurbished??

I am very interested in this thread,I see that you have a Former Rental and as of yet there has been no members of that thread that have had a failure of the refrigerator. I will be looking for the outcome of this. I can only assume that you did not get the extended service contract.“extended warranty,” as they like to call it.

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

Alright! Welcome quasimatter to the Forum and the Former Rental Owners Club. I will up that number,you will officially be #131 https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/thumbs/smileys-thumbs-951446.gif Thanks for the detailed write up and the observations,this will be very helpful to others that are looking to be owners of a Former Rental RV. This "Pre-refurbished" unit is something new I am seeing and your details of what to look for and have fixed is also very helpful. If I might can I ask which location did you purchase from? So If I get this right your unit is all White with no decals. Is there any shadowing from the removal of the decals? I know that the refurbished ones are repainted. As far as the the installation of the of the awning I would have them do it,the price seems to be very competitive and most likely cheaper than other options. In my case having them do it was $200 cheaper than I could find elsewhere. Again welcome and we will be looking forward to your updates on any mods that you make.

RE: RV Flag Pole

One of the best on the market for flag poles and mounts is Poles and Holders they are a family owned company. They have been in business for more than 20 years making all their mounts in house, and have great customer service, fast shipping, and a very good warranty, if there is any problems just bring it by or call Corky, the owner, he will make it right. Here in the west, on our windy beaches and deserts, you will see mostly their products,mine has withstood 40mph winds and after over 10 years of use still looks and performs great. Their price is right for a quality, long lasting and durable flag pole and Mounts unlike flagpole buddy they offer many ways to mount your flag,not only on a ladder.I use the Folding Hitch mount I also have one of their Flashing Beacons for desert use. Also a Solar Light for Camp Ground use.

RE: RV damage and repair fix help

All good information so far I think,as for the vent cover that is an easy one. First see what type vent lid you have using this https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/51MRpzoL6xL.jpg For long lasting vent covers Polycarbonate ones are the ones you want. If you haven't done this before Here is a short video that will help you. You may need a new seal that goes on the metal edge this will make it a tight seal This is what you need Replace like this Maxx Air covers are also a good Idea,mine have been on for 9 years and look good as new.
