RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

You could always do it your self.My drivers seat was worn out,cover and foam. I went to the Seat Shop I put in my information and bought everything I needed to do it myself,both top and bottom covers plus replacement foam that was better than the original.The price was very good in my estimation and I did it my self. They have a very good video for each seat that was easy to follow and was a great help in the installation. Just one Example for your year 2004 The Install Video

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

IAMICHABOD: Thanks for the photo which leads to me now standing corrected! Found the manufacturing date on my replacement unit. The date was actually printed on the faceplate of the old unit rather than on the back as they are doing now. That is great to know.What was the MFG Date on your new one?Hopefully it is fairly new.

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

Interestingly, information on the front panel of my new Safe-T-Alert detector specifically states "Replace by 60 months after retail sale date." No manufacturing date is supplied. So apparently the onus is on the buyer (me) to print the date from my receipt on the faceplate with an indelible marker. I'm guessing that they don't expect the fungible components of the detector to begin deteriorating until power is supplied!(?) Attempts to reach the company for clarification via the printed 800 number have been unsuccessful. The office is closed due to COVID and they are working remotely. That is interesting,my new Safe-T-Alert has the MFG Date stamped on the back side just as the one that I replaced that was a bit over 5 years old according to the MFG date that was stamped on the backside of the old unit.Here is the new one. https://i.imgur.com/gATAAfnl.jpg height=250 The original one that was in the RV when I bought it had a MFG Date that was over 6 years old when it failed.

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

SJ-Chris,I hard wired the Progressive HW30C I found that with the remote readout in the place, I put it inside my electrical bay, I could see the read out while hooking up,on the remote readout you also have a switch to by pass the unit and still get power. https://i.imgur.com/Aj9L7bcl.jpg height=240 "border=0"https://i.imgur.com/ezjTg4Kl.jpg height=220 As for what it detects and what it does This manual will tell you. It will shut down then the read out will tell you what happened on the read out,the codes are printed on the front of the unit and it comes with a handy card which is good for me because the unit is placed in the rear of my electrical bay. https://i.imgur.com/eDO2hKJl.jpg height=220 For installation it is really simple,I did it myself following This video Mine has shut down when there was low voltage,one time last summer when a lot of other RVs had their A/C on then the power went out,when it came back on there was a power surge also picked up on the EMS,my neighbor in the next site was not so lucky,he lost his A/C and microwave.

RE: A terrible dinette table. Opinions on modification?

I saw a video a while back that may be something that would work.It would be moveable,stable and would fold down easily. Click here for video Here is the unit

RE: Heavy Duty leveling block suggestions

I tried the Lego type blocks but found that they broke to easy and were a pain to setup when you don't get it right the first time and had to drive off,re-stack, and make them higher,to labor intensive. When I bought my RV,a former Rental, it came with Tri Level Ramps They don't break and if they are good enough to withstand the use in that market they must be good. I have used them a lot and have had no problems and they are easy to use and store.

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

While checking the interior of my 2015 Majestic 28a last week I heard beeping and discovered it was my dual carbon monoxide / propane gas alarm. Upon closer inspection, the flashing lights indicated the unit had reached the end of its useful life and needed replacing. An inscription on the face plate also directed the device be replaced after 5 years of service. Just an FYI for other former rental owners to be aware. Cost to replace is appproximately $75. I bought mine online through Camping World with a $15 coupon. I had the same thing happen to mine,my RV was a bit over 4 years old when I purchased it,The propane detector failed about a year after my purchase, it was just a bit over 6 years old according to the MFG Date. I replaced it and then just a few months ago I hear that same beep again,checked and sure enough it was my Propane alarm failure beep and flashing light. I pulled it out and checked the MFG Date,it was 5 years and 2 months old,talk about planned failure. I also replaced mine from Camping World.For me I went to the store and checked it before I bought it,its MFG Date was only 1 month old,I suggest checking that to make sure that you didn't get a old one. A link to the one you bought might be very helpful to other owners of a Majestic 28A. Thanks for coming back and alerting others of this!

RE: Vortex II fans

Yes it will,the multi speed will give you about all you will need.I was very pleased with my install,much easier than the to install than my Fantastic Fan. It is bit noisier than my Fantastic Fan but it moves a lot of air.

RE: Cordless blowers

I have a Black+Decker that I picked up at Amazon Warehouse deals pretty cheap and I also have a few other Black+ Decker 20Volt tools that I can use with this Battery Pack.Always look at the warehouse first,got a great deal on a Weber Q.

RE: surge protector and water filters

I have to go along with many others and recommend the Progressive EMS,I know that it has served me well but I went with the Hard Wired one less thing to hook up and store later. As for the company they get very high praise from me,I had a failure of the remote desplay unit and after talking to a real live person and going thru all the test procedures he said it was toast. They sent me a new one OVERNITE FEDEX I received it the next day. As for the water filter I had problems with the Blue Camco ones,poor MFG as they always leaked,I went with Aqua Quest about same price but for me it was of a better quality.

RE: Best Company for Extended Service Plan (ESP)

They may very well be a good thing for a newbie with no or very little mechanical ability,and if the price and peace of mind would make your entry to the RV life easier then I would say go for it. My suggestion would be to just do your research and then make up your mind This Google Search has a lot of information that may be helpful,read as many articles as you can. My only experience with one was not good because of the"small print"and as a newbie at the time it seemed like a good idea,it just did not work out. I think that you will have to make up your own mind about it. Good Luck!

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

The short answer is that you need an Inverter to change 12 volt to 120 volt,I believe there has been a few owners that have done that and hopefully they will come along and share how that did it,in the mean time I will look thru the posts and see what I may have archived. The only thing I could find is when you asked before and fadumpt answered

RE: Rear Bumper Mud Guards

The aerodynamics of vehicles with flat, squared-off backs are such that the air swirls around back there and dust and stuff is all stirred up and some collects on the vehicle. I don't think there's much you can do to eliminate it. One very good way to eliminate that swirling wind to install Air Tabs That is what they are designed to do, the partial vacuum is reduced. There is less accumulation of road grime. I put them on my Class C and the bikes and the rear of the RV stays very clean. They have not really helped in the fuel mileage but the stability in cross winds and the turbulence created by passing trucks has been very good,handling has greatly improved and the cleanliness of the rear of the RV is a real plus.
