RE: Moving from 5th Wheel to Sprinter based Class C

We are looking into "downsizing" from our 31 foot 5th wheel / 2500HD diesel set up to a Sprinter based class "C" with a flat towed vehicle. Are there any out there that have made this transition? Wondering about your experience. It is a lot to think about (licensing, insurance, swapping truck for a towed vehicle, towbar/braking solutions, etc.). It sounds like weight will be a bigger factor that current set up because of the limited cargo carrying capacity of these motorhomes? We did this, to a 25’ gas C. The fiver is better when you’re camped. The C is better when you’re on the road or moving a lot. Honestly I see that as the biggest decision point.

RE: Flow-Rite battery watering system

I have decided some of the base gaskets are crapped out, causing the leaks. I called the company and they advised that since my caps were made in 2016, they were probably switched from the previous batteries to the new ones. He said they don't recommend doing that, because the failing batteries can mess up the caps. So the best practice is to buy a new system. Since I can easily reach all the batteries to water them, I don't care too much about the system. So I ordered Water Miser caps to replace it.

Flow-Rite battery watering system

Just bought a 2014 golf cart that came with almost new batteries and Flow-Rite watering system. Since I didn't know the state of charge I went ahead and charged it. The battery tops looked squeaky clean before charging, but during charging I got a lot of fumes, and some electrolyte ended up on the tops of the batteries. From several caps, maybe all 6 batteries. I checked the level after charging and they were not close to over filled. Looked to be less than 1/4 inch over the plates. So how does this system vent? Somewhere on the caps, I have to assume. I looked at their site but didn't see anything on this. The tubes all look like new, the whole system does. But I don't want to have to contend with this mess after every charge. As to the charge, it was definitely vigorous. I measured voltages. Suffice it to say it was doing absorption at the equivalent of 14.8v per 12v, at over 80 degrees F. They were definitely bubbling. (Club Car 48v using their PowerDrive3 charger.)
