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

Booner Welcome to the Forum,also a future member of the Former Rental Owners Club. I Know that this thread is long but there is wealth of information contributed by our Forum members,hopefully it has been helpful to you,also maybe answered some of your questions. When you pick your unit please come on back and share your experiences on the purchase and your comments on how it went and what you liked or didn't. Again Welcome to the Forum and I can't wait to hear back form you after the purchase. I can sympathize with you on the problem of not having enough leg room,at 6'6" I have the same problem,luckily my RV is built on a Chevy Chassis it has a lot more room up front. One thing that Fleetwood did on theirs is that they made a cutout in the dinette seat back so the drivers seat could be relined more. This doesn't affect the seating any way because the cushion is quite stiff and leans against the seat back. https://i.imgur.com/1SH9oIXl.jpg height=340

RE: Fresh water quick drain on 2010 fleetwood jamboree sport 25g

On my Fleetwood Tioga the drain is attached to the water tank it looks like this,just turn the handle so it lines up with the pipe and it will drain. You may have to remove the plywood cover covering the tank to access it. https://i.imgur.com/C26XCJGl.jpg height=260 https://i.imgur.com/ptS2nTpl.jpg height=260 https://i.imgur.com/hFPElTUl.jpg width=260

RE: is there an easier-to-use sewer cap?

I would love this IF it were clear. All the caps I have used are clear so there is no surprise when I open it. You mean LIKE THIS ONE :@ :B

RE: airtabs

I have no idea about all your prayers,but 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 did not seem to make any difference

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

Strange sticker on my 28A. Forgot to mention this earlier but the gear select has a 'better fuel economy in tow/haul mode' sticker on it. When I questioned this the sales guy said it uses less gas in that mode - that's why it auto-selects. Why would it use less gas by using more revs? I'm confused. This discussion on the Tow/Haul mode may help you out. :B

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

Germax, First welcome to the Forum,also to the Former Rental Owners Club! I will add you to the list, you will be #123.https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/thumbs/smileys-thumbs-217948.gif I have noticed in earlier posts for some reason Cruise Canada in their 23A and 19G they don't come with a generator, as all the US ones do. I had a book mark on the subject but the magazine that it was in has purged its archives. There was another member that had a 19G that didn't have a generator,its space was like yours. He built a shelf to put batteries on,I also can't link those photos. So I am going to PM him and see if he has some Photos of the shelf and how it was mounted. Good luck in all your mods and have a good camping season.

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

Couple of follow-up comments on my 28A. Has anyone installed a swivel seat base in the passenger side - with or without replacement seats? I have installed one on my Class C with the stock seat. It is on a Chevy chassis,but on This thread there are a few that did it on a Ford Chassis. There are 3 MFGs that make the seat base. Discount Van and Truck Then there is Sportsmobile And the one that I got mine from Shop4Seats I think it depends on the year model which one will fit. You might look at This Video to help you along. I really like mine, good luck in this.

RE: Smoke alarm

I find that hardwired smoke detectors are unnecessary and often PIA. Suggest you toss and buy an inexpensive battery operated combo fire/CO detector - you have to change the battery once a yr. No big deal. I agree. We did this too after being annoyed by the hardwired one. I also agree,my hardwired one failed and the replacement was not being made anymore. After a lot of research I settled on This one change out the batteries once a year.

RE: How to empty fresh water tank without pump?

If you can find your water tank it may have a drain on one side of it like this, https://i.imgur.com/FWnz8dKl.jpg height=220 Turn the valve so lines up with the pipe and it will drain under the RV. Or if you can follow the line to the water pump sometime there is a valve there that you open and it lets the water out under the RV.

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

My 28A came home with me today. Now I'm looking at how to mount the (Haloview) rear view camera. I'm going to power it from the marker light but I'm unsure about the best way of fastening the mount to the body. 4 holes and self tapping screws? Epoxy? Other? Ideas gratefully received. eldel That sounds great! I will put you on the list of happy Former Rental Owners.Welcome to the club,you will be #122 I did find a thread that may be of help when you install that rear view camera. Rear View Camera Install Good luck on the install,please come on back and tell us how it went and any pictures of the install if possible,I know that it will help others. I hope that you have a great camping season with that new to you RV.https://www.picgifs.com/emoticons/smileys-and-emoticons/thumbs/smileys-thumbs-217948.gif

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

nrbrooker Welcome to the Forum and the Former Rental Owners Club! I will add you to the list of happy owners,you will be #121. I have a post that may be of help for that battery tray,Look at This The pictures may help a welder do what you want. It is very close to what you want and can be welded up. I found that when I needed welding done and was looking for a good welder I went to YELP and found what I needed and got a very good job at a fair price. You might try these in your area. Again welcome to the Forum and the Club,when or if you get this done please come on back and let us know how it went,there are many others it may help out.

RE: Replacing PD 9145A

+1 for PD9245 http://www.bestconverter.com/9200-Series-Deck-Mount_c_84.html This is a great choice but they have a better one that I bought from Best converter it is a 9200 PD9245 modified to put out 14.8 Volts of boost instead of the 13.6. I can't find it on the website but if you call and ask Randy, he may still have them in stock. 888-828-1893 https://i.imgur.com/2u1dvbXl.jpg

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

eldel,that sounds great. Your list of upgrades sounds very good. On the TPMS make sure that you put them on metal valve stems, I would suggest the Extended Valve Stems from Dually Valve is a great choice. They make checking the air pressure a lot easier and are made for TPMS use. A good set of Bilstein Shocks would also be a great addition. Good Luck on the pickup of the RV and please come on back and tell us how it all went.

RE: Battery Disconnect Confusion

No, I don't have a "battery boost" for the engine battery. Thank you!!!! Are you sure? I have not seen a class C that didn't have one. They are designed for the situation that you described.This is how it works. I should be located to the left of the steering wheel on the dashboard Looks something like this. https://i.ebayimg.com/images/i/231496795751-0-1/s-l1000.jpg height=220
