RE: Need A/C Help

(fan, A/C, heater) and nothing turned on Do you think it could be the fan ? I have had fan blades hang up and not spin. I gave the blades/fins a spin by hand while squirting a little lubricant on the fan shaft.

RE: Galley/head access with slides in, under 30'

Ifyoudontknow-Howshouldweknow :) Look at the Jayco 25R . Its actually just under 29' . I looked at one last year but can't remember how tight it was to enter the bathroom. If you find one on a lot, ask the dealer to pull the slide in and take a pic for you. That's what I have done. I have a 2018 25R and we use this as a family of 5 as our "Road Trip" vehicle. We use it more with the slide in than out! Plenty of space to walk around, use the head, and cook lunch on the go. The bathroom door is on an angle next to the rear bed, so very easy to access. I think its a great usable floorplan in a coach with nice comfortable passenger and driver seating. If I could fit it in my driveway I would own one. Tnx for the updated bath info.

RE: air pressure for tow dolly

If the TD uses St tires then you would run them at or near max psi. The tires are stamped for psi. You can also sign onto Tire Rack and punch in the tire by brand and size and view the specs.

RE: Freshwater tank question

I will check there for the water pump. Thanks As I think of more places, sometimes you have to remove a bottom drawer in the kitchen to gain access to a pump or LP drains . FW drain tube hunting is a lot fun isn't it ? Kids seem to like it a lot too. They do well hunting Easter eggs !

RE: 24 ft Class C with full wall slide

Re slides in class c's and class A's . The A's might be using hydraulic slides and the A's might have a little more beef in the framework of the coach where the slide slides. The headers on A's might have more room above the slide to build a more beefy header. That might be the reason the A's coaches seem to have less issues, especially flexing. Remember not move a coach once you deploy a slide. I have seen people pull into sites and deploy the slide then find out they are too far away from the pedestal and move the coach back n forth to get closer and then level it...all with the slide hanging out . That's a good way to crack your sidewalls of your coach as well as possibly bind the slide it the frame.

RE: 24 ft Class C with full wall slide

Do you know which makes have those? I'm sorry, no. Are you looking for full pass thru storage tall enough for bikes ? I do remember seeing some units with compartments like that. If that's the case, I will try to retrace my steps and shake my brain. Hopefully something will stir my memory . I did save a lot of stuff when I was looking for my unit. I guess you can call me an RV research hoarder. :B I was thinking of the Leisure Travel van 'Wonder' RTB model. Its a small class c or B plus, however you want to classify it. Rear twin bed model has the bike storage. However if you are in the 'more room slide mode', the Wonder would be too small for you.

RE: Freshwater tank question

Keep in mind that many TT's FWT is strapped and exposed under the TT while a MH's FWT is often mounted inside supported by the floor. A longer tube is involved and could be run anywhere where they have room for a clean run to the ground. My class C tube ties into the low point drain cold line below my chassis but the petcock is inside a storage compartment. Sometimes they hide a drain petcock inside a baggage compartment behind a trap door . I have a hinged trap door inside the compartment where the water pump is housed as well as the winterizing valve (pick up tube) . Some rv's also have the fresh water drain petcock in that location . Other places are below the fridge , there might be a removable panel screwed in place or under the bed near the tank itself.

RE: 24 ft Class C with full wall slide

Just a few thoughts: That full wall slide will add weight to that side. On a 450 it probably won't matter too much but it might on a 350 :@ So you don't get stuck if a problem occurs , do yourself a favor and learn the mechanics of your slide so you can release it to get it back in if it gets jammed in the deployed position. The larger the slide the more people you will need to push, 'if' it can be pushed back in. Make sure your floorplan will offer you a means to balance the load from side to side. If you decide on having air bags . Some people add air bags with a dual path system in order to accomplish the load balance. Some mfg.'s offer bags as standard or optional equipment. ex: Sunseekers come thru with the less expensive single line air bags but Sunseeker LE's do not have any bags. If that's a priority for you make sure the you see the physical bag , don't take a salesmen's word for it. Be advised getting an rv dealership or truck shop to add aftermarket bags might be a challenge or if any agree to do it be very labor expensive depending where you live. Shops like to order their owns parts and not have you buy them on-line. My experience with storage bins/compartments. Some of them are not very stout as far as the mounting of them. The bigger they are the more we carry in them. Many owners have to reinforce them somehow in order to carry any kind of weight . My simple fix: I only carry very lightweight items that I seldom use in my OEM bins and have covered the bins using some leftover flooring strips equally spaced apart to support a load, 3" wide oak flooring crossmembers and a plywood cover. I left about 10" of access room so I can reach under the plywood to reach those seldom used items. An old awning rod acts as a 'hook retriever' extension pole . I have a solid 1.5" lip around my full width rear bin where I screwed in (attached) the crossmembers (supports) then placed the plywood on top of them. Now I have a solid platform to carry heavier items. Otherwise those flimsy bins will eventually pull down from the edges where they are mounted and who knows what would happen at that point.

RE: Class c under 25 feet w/ rear bed slide

A few things that come to mind: If you regularly sleep at crowded roadside rest areas where a parking spot is at premium, think about a slide that is deployed out the side of any rv floorplan. You don't want to open a slide into a travel portion of a rest area. Its possible to break down a dinette or sofa to sleep for awhile. Floorplans need to fit your rv style of use. If the slide opens out the rear, make sure you can also have a ladder to access the roof if that's important to you. Some floorplans have overhead extra large acrylic skylights that allow excessive heat inside cabins. A/c units have difficulty keeping up.

RE: Spare Tire Hanger

I really don't see you can pull and lift a tire off a dually if you have a bad back. Are you going to be able to jack the motorhome up and remove an inner dually tire ? Once the spare is off it's mount you're lifting a truck tire 5x and stretching inward at an awkward angle which IMO is more stress on your back than a standing straight lift.

RE: Spare Tire Hanger

Have a road service contract anyway. You might be surprised that they will come out to help you in a remote place, as long as you can have cell service or a sat phone. Give Coach-net a call and ask them about the service they offer in that area. https://www.harborfreight.com/catalogsearch/result/index/?dir=asc&order=EAScore%2Cf%2CEAFeatured+Weight%2Cf%2CSale+Rank%2Cf&q=1647 Have a welder make a bracket for your hitch . or..... have a welder alum weld a lightweight bracket to a rear rv ladder if you have one. Fabricate a boat winch to the bracket. It will be plenty strong for one time you might need it. Rieco-Titan makes a free standing truck camper tri-pod jack have a welder do something like that. At least weld up a tri-pod and boat winch (handcrank model) That way you can use it to pull the tire on/off the hub as well.

RE: Salesman trying to talk me out of a Class C

He's got all kinds of reasons Besides storage and the hated driving of it . Hated driving can mean a lot of different things. Its all trade-offs that's why it needs to be what you want. If it was between a gasser 'A' and gasser 'C', I opt for the 'C' . Just watch your GVWR on larger 'C's. Some can be overloaded easily when you have large or multiple slides. A long wheelbase diesel pusher is quiet, the tag axle is smooth, the air suspension is smooth, the cab is very roomy . Your passenger sits far away from the driver, you might end up having a "WHAT" contest because you can't hear each other. Not because it's noisy, because it's a further distance than a 'C' interior. Problem is 45' is too big for me. Too restricted at campsites and parking lots etc. Its nice going down the highway but that's about it. You always have to call ahead and if boondocking in the woods is your thing...forget it. What I have found is you need a unit that offers large enough capacities to fill your needs. Fresh water and holding tank size. A floorplan that suits your needs. My DW likes to recline her seat while on the road, therefore we need a floorplan that allows that. Drivers door ease or not. Some A's offer that. All C's do. Class 'A's have flat side walls where its easier to see pulling out of driveways while looking back to your left to view traffic. Class C's have a more narrow cab and a wider camper sidewall (widebody) which blocks your view. When driving a C you need to be closer to 90 degrees to the roadway while exiting a driveway. If you try to exit at a 45 degree angle your view is more limited. A unit with graduated flared sidewall ( Phoenix Cruisers etc) makes it easier plus it offers less drag. Tires on a C are usually 16" A's can be 19.5" or 22's. I have found a small 24' C to be my best rv because its easy to fit in campsites as well as easy to fit in most gas stations. Not only to gas up but for repairs that do not require a lift. My car mechanic performs jobs on my class C at 1/2 the price of a truck shop or rv shop because he can physically fit it outside at his station where a larger 'A' is more difficult to fit. We use the rv hydraulic jacks to lift it off the ground for tire work. Solid ramps for oil changes. Look into general insurance costs between the two. I have glass coverage of my 'C' cab which is harder and more costly to get on an 'A'. I also like having an engine in front of me opposed to the flat class 'A' design. I have a short wheelbase on my 'C' and had to spend some $$$ to upgrade shocks, rear track bar and customize the alignment etc . Some people have to add more stout sway bars. But people have to do alterations on some short wheelbase 'A's too. Im not sure which is better or worse as far as handling. Both usually need to be tweaked. Hope this helps, regards, Bob

RE: fresh water tank

" +1. We have a pump, and aren't afraid to use it. " Me too. Its actually a good idea and good habit to get into in case the campground water takes a nose dive for whatever reason. I have had CG water lines break and had to wait a day for someone to repair the line. Having a full tank of on-board water off my water pump will give me water. I also carry along a spare pump. Been stuck 2x in the middle of the woods with a downed pump.

RE: Galley/head access with slides in, under 30'

Ifyoudontknow-Howshouldweknow :) Look at the Jayco 25R . Its actually just under 29' . I looked at one last year but can't remember how tight it was to enter the bathroom. If you find one on a lot, ask the dealer to pull the slide in and take a pic for you. That's what I have done.
