RE: Anyone have the new Ford 7.3L V8?

In 2021 is there a choice regarding engines ? Can it be ordered either way v10 or v8 ?

RE: Trying to level my motorhome

Most absorption fridges will work properly as long as they are within 2 degrees of level side to side and 4 degrees of level front to back. looking at the fridge : New models of RV fridges are more forgiving, with proper operation within 3 degrees of level side to side and 6 degrees of level front to back. If your rv is 22 feet long, it would have to be approx. 12-14" off level in order to be more than 3 degrees off level. Even though I have a 4 way set of levels inside my MH, if I pull into a rest area for an hour to three, if its feels level im ok with it. If my doors are not slamming closed and my sinks are draining, I have been fine with that degree of being level my entire rv life, never having to replace an rv fridge.

RE: Getting ready to roll!

Dale, I remember . We both have been here together for a long time I admire your independence and strength to carry on . When we get to Florida , we will look for a Scottish terrier playing the bagpipes. See you then, stay safe, best wishes, Bob n Dot

RE: Thor Majestic 23A

X2, limited ground clearance is the only issue I have driving on dirt. Hard-pack dirt is fine if its a maintained road without unfilled potholes. If the road is wet and muddy you have to remember its not a 4x4. Don't get yourself stuck in the middle of nowhere without cell service or a sat phone. My 'C' is a 24' model and I need to be aware of steep dips on some roads, dirt or paved. The long rear overhang behind the rear axle can sometimes drag if the conditions are steep enough, like some driveway aprons.

RE: Looking for specific floorplan

You could also leave the couch in place and seatbelt the dog crates on the couch giving them a large window to look out of and make funny doggie faces to passing motorists. That way they would be occupied and you wouldn't have take your eyes off the road at all to monitor them. :)

RE: Nexus Chassis noise

Take it to a tire shop. I would think that inspecting tires would be the easiest and cheapest thing to do. Maybe swap the front tires with the rear tires and drive it to see if that helps. I once had a tire that could not be balanced, it was a bad tire and had to be replaced. Try to eliminate a tire problem first.

RE: Utilizing Refrigerator While Driving to RV Park

bobndot, Solar is the nearest any of us are like to get to a "free lunch". Solar, i learned that term from you.:B We have come a long way. Remember Gilligan’s Island where they peddled a homemade bike to generate electricity ? I now have solar on my roof , solar that i can move around the campsite and more batteries If i ever have to replace my fridge i think i will go 12 v. they draw so little nowadays.

RE: Utilizing Refrigerator While Driving to RV Park

Cardinals, if you have a new 2021 Forester you may have the new model 10.7 12 v fridge. I dont know that fridge. But i assume its a not lp at all. That would a low draw 12 v model that operates off your 12 v system. Solar and a larger amp battery setup would be a big plus for you if thats the case.

RE: Utilizing Refrigerator While Driving to RV Park

My rig is a 2018. I have a N611 fridge. Norcold automatic. Switches from gas to 120v. 120v is primary if running off the gen or shore power. Model decal is inside the fridge. Model and serial #.

RE: Utilizing Refrigerator While Driving to RV Park

So I did actually get a hold of the demo person and he said that with our unit to plug the power cord into the receptacle in the back compartment and then set the refrigerator to "automatic" and it will know to use the electric as power source and charge our battery at same time. The frig can run off of LP gas or electric. Previously we had a travel trailer and always waited until we got to the site before powering up the refrigerator. I have a 25’ FR as well. I have a Sunseeker without the optional transfer switch to switch power from that 30 amp receptacle to shore power. I have to physically plug in that 30 amp cord into that compartment outlet in order to use my generator. When i hookup to shore power, I unplug it and then connect it to shore power to acquire 120v. It appears as you have an absorption rv fridge that runs off LP or 120v by an auto selector switch on the fridge. Most of us run it off LP while driving. The fridge will use a very small amount of 12 v coach battery power while running off LP. That 12v power gets replenished by the truck alternator. While parked level at home , i pre-cool my fridge off LP and don't bother hooking up to shore power . I pre-cool it for 12 hrs or so. You can run that fridge off LP and your 12 v battery for many days without any 120v power. Hope this info helps, enjoy and stay safe, Bob

RE: Nexus Chassis noise

Is it a vibration or a noise or both ?

RE: DFW Class C Sevice

Its my understanding that you have NOT made a purchase yet ? To be honest, this is the first time i have heard of a lack of Ford truck/rv service dealerships. If you finally decide to make this purchase because you verified that someone liked a Ford truck dealer near you , what will you do if you need Ford warranty service while on the road ??
bobndot 03/29/21 03:04am Class C Motorhomes
RE: DFW Class C Sevice

Do a search. Ford Commercial Vehicle Centers Nationwide Pick off the listed dealerships. If buying a new unit , you will most likely be heading back to the rv dealer before the Ford dealer if at all. I replaced my radio under the rv warranty not the Ford warranty. My oil changes get done at a truck shop, along with brakes, tires etc. where i personally know and trust the mechanics. Just save receipts for those non warranty service items. .

RE: E-450 Front Hitch Mount?

Keep on eye on all temps. Install a tranny temp gauge. Make sure your radiator is up to the chore.

RE: WB longer than 159 ins in a 23-25 ft Class C

Gary, I was thinking a difference in the frame build. Then I found a 2017 thread with frame info in one of the posts. Gary, as a side note, some class queen beds are really not QB's they are only 54" wide not 60" Winnebago vs Sunseekers 60" QB is one example. The difference is in the shower size, Winnie is 6" wider. Im 6' 200 and the Sunseekers shower is fine for me. Here is the link with the frame info. If outdated, Maybe others can add updated info. https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/29503089/print/true.cfm

RE: New to Class C

Yes congratulations ! A 38 ft TT was one of ours too. Now we have a 24' C and are very much enjoying it. During our one year covid lock-down, having our drivable 'C' has been a blessing to be able to have a change of scenery taking local day trips. We did not do that with owning a TT . WE get much more use from our MH. I once had an elderly woman pull up to my class C while parked in a shopping center parking lot and asked if I was open yet ? She wanted a hot dog. :h She really thought I was a vendor.

RE: Battery & electrical questions

Dealer is not always correctSame applies here. :BYes and will usually soon get corrected. Dealer's word just stands in the darkness. Answers here also have no profit motive. I think u may have taken my comment the wrong way . I meant here like in 'me', I was goofing on myself ;)
