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.

They are 8 volts.

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.)

RE: Onan 4000 generator cranks but won't start

Agree with the previous post. The two I’ve owned were bad cold starters. The choke seems to hang up. You can turn the choke closed using the linkage connector on top of the carb while cranking.

RE: Is this a 10 speed Ford?

Final update, I think it had a small exhaust leak on one side that would have accounted for the sounds I was hearing.

RE: Is this a 10 speed Ford?

Yeah I soon figured out it was a six speed. I knew I had read about the ten speed but forgot it was in the class A chassis. It is a good trans. MPG of the truck is good too. Power seems comparable to the 6.0 V8 of my Chevy Sunseeker. This one runs higher revs at a given road speed. Whether in TH mode or not. Although, with only 21K miles, this thing sounds horrendous on a cold start. Does it have solid lifters??? It clatters, there is a loud roar probably the fan, and the exhaust is loud. But after a minute it’s okay. I do hear what sounds like lifters when it down shifts.

Renting a U Haul today. 2021 E chassis. Is it a 10 speed? I have to look under the hood and see what motor it is too. https://i.imgur.com/f8Zt78tl.jpg

RE: Champion dual fuel generator, convert to nat gas?

Thanks all. My DD and SIL live in TX and are now thinking about a simple generator. Knowing their ways, a gasoline one will end up not working when they need it. So I’m looking into the LP and natural gas options. I see that the dual fuel version of the Champion 2000 inverter is $500 more than the gasoline only version. Yikes.

Champion dual fuel generator, convert to nat gas?

What would it take to run a Champion dual fuel generator on natural gas instead of propane?

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

The one that Snowman900 linked is a Former Rental that was discontinued in 2005. They still may be found,I think I know where there is one. Here is a LINK to an old post that may help you out. YouTube Majestic 23P They had them again recently. Maybe up to 3 or 4 years ago. What you may have seen is This, they sold them from 2016 to 2019 The confusion may come from when they changed out the E series grill and fenders to more closely match the F series. I'm pretty sure they had some 3-4 years ago.

RE: Small Class C on Truck Chassis?

Cruise America had a Majestic brand unit exactly what you are looking for. They no longer use them, but they are out there somewhere. I can’t remember the model number.

RE: Good time to buy class a diesel?

We sold our small C about 60 days ago at PPL Motorhomes, the biggest consignment dealer in the US. They told me that small units were selling super fast but big rigs were very slow.

RE: Class A creature comforts at FHU stays

OK, so now, what budget are we talking about? Probably something lightly used, 3-5 years old. 200K? 250? Higher? $200K to $250K would buy a very nice later model coach with all the high end options mentioned so far. This is sounding good to me. :)

Yes, washer and dryer, I forgot about those.

Class A creature comforts at FHU stays

We are now RV-less, and are considering an A that would be used for a few summer months, possibly sitting in just one or two different locales over the summer. With 1000 mile drives to and from the home base. We've had fivers and don't want to go that route this time. I want to know about the creature comforts and at what level they are available. Things that make the experience a bit more residential. For instance, I don't think much of normal RV HVAC. It's great for campers but maybe there is something nicer. What else is available in the bigger rigs? I've read about Aqua Hot and probably have a decent idea that it's diesel fired hot water heat? Is it worthwhile? Is there any AC other than a bunch of rooftop units? Or are they quiet enough on a nice A to be just fine? A 120v fridge would be very nice, I know that's not a big deal any more, right? The RV toilet is still going to be the RV toilet, I assume. Anything else worth mentioning that makes the rig feel more residential? We're not interested in the goofy bling stuff. More like just better quality and comfort.
