RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

Aaand another 1 and done thread by the OP. Maybe they’ll come back some other time and contribute to the thread they started with a super open-ended question. Its a condition called ‘ RV information overload’ I think some people pass-out from receiving an abundance of information all at one time. Maybe we should include resuscitation directions . :)

RE: house batteries & heat with 120v

If you need new batteries and you have 120 volts available then why not buy the batteries and plug it in from time to time to keep them topped off or leave the rv plugged in. Use the rv kill switch to prevent a drain.

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

Tnx Tom. When i googled the procedure, some sites said N for the Transmission, some said P, at the same time saying N for the transfer case.

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

Transmission in P, and transfer case in N, and off you go Is this a typo ? Transmission in P ?

RE: Which fridge would you choose?

At what voltage do these 12v fridges cut off at ? I can see them cutting off at 11.8v to protect Wet cells / AGM’s but other batteries like lithium or Si02 allow them discharge lower. My question is, would a fridge with a lower cut off be an advantage or better option using these types of batteries ? Also, is it necessary to need a specific charger or converter to use with the Si02’s. I have a PD4000 , not sure about charging specs of Si02’s.

RE: Which fridge would you choose?

I agree the size that fits is the easiest install. Look into the amp draw of each model, then decide.

RE: Class C - with ability to tow

Check your real Jeep weight for towing . If you plan to haul gear in it bc you plan long term stays , be sure to take cargo into consideration. **if you plan to 'flat-tow' the GC, make sure you can. Not all are flat towable, depends on the drive system. I agree 100% with PartyOfFive, RENT first ! See how much room, floorspace, you need with the 2 dogs always in the way. * Beware that many 'C's use a base entry level chassis without power seats or power mirrors. I personally like the Jayco seats with leatherette and power swivel bases. Check the comfort level of seats in the cab as well as in the rv. I would want recliners or at least a sofa as well as a dinette . If you are used to towing a TT, expect a MH to be more noisy when driving it. You don't hear things rattling around when towing a TT.

RE: Stability control

Does anyone know if TL Stableloads help on these rvs ? Might be another option for some experiencing side to side motion. They worked well with my pickup hauling TC’s. This link explains and reviews what they are. https://www.torklift.com/blog/entry/customer-review-stableloads-suspension-stabilizer?format=amp

RE: Low point drains

Look inside your basement rear storage compartment. There may be a panel screwed in place. If you remove that panel, you should see 3 valves. H / C and FW drain.

RE: Low point drains

In general . Look under the chassis. Look for red and blue pex lines with screwcaps or petcocks. Open them as well as sink faucets to vent the lines for draining. If you see that the red line is capped and the blue is open ended, then that blue line is a 'dual purpose line' which drains your freshwater tank as well as the low-point line. There would be an "interior mounted valve' near the floor to gravity drain the FW tank. Draining low point drain lines takes very little time because its a small amount of water. If you have the dual line setup then the blue could take longer depending on the amount of water in your FW tank. Three most common areas for low-point drains is near the water pump, freshwater holding tank or exterior water gravity fill port .

RE: Chevrolet 4500 service

My mechanic that does my cars also takes care of my rv. He works on it outdoors . I need to plan ahead to watch the weather for oil changes etc. If the work needs a lift then i have to go to a truck shop. Pick a place with a tall enough door which should have a heavy enough lift to handle the rv .

RE: which way?

I am relatively new to this Toad life. I tried a dolly and found it too much of a pita, especially in freezing weather with snow on the ground. Bought a 2012 Honda Fit 5spd and set it up to flat tow. Much easier. Plus, I am cleaner and less pissed off when done. Wife and I get it done in less than 5 minutes. Towed it all over USA this past summer and now much prefer this method. Note to the wise: Do not try to do this w/o axillary braking. My Roadmaster braking system disconnected itself in the mountains one time. I could feel it immediately. That 2700# car was pushing my 14,000# E450 class C around a bit. Or if you’re good with a Jeep Wrangler and no toad brakes, couple hundred bucks gets you a tow bar and some magnetic tail lights. Easy peasy. Does the Jeep not require a base plate? I often thought it should be simple to attach a tow bar to the recovery hooks on a Jeep or other 4wd vehicle. Think about the liability involved. You need to follow the designed procedure when towing something 4500 lbs with a 13,000 lb rv. * You need to use a baseplate which offers multiple attachment points opposed to a set of tow hooks which are designed for a strap and winch emergency pull-out.

RE: class c with v10

My 2018 24' V-10, 8-10 is average. On country roads the hills eat up the gas mileage. At least that's what my scan gauge indicates. Towing the toad or utility trailer eats up an additional 1/2 mpg.

RE: New class B

It does have AC. Roof mounted. But it blows directly on you when sleeping in the overhead. You might be able to close that one side letting it blow towards the rear. I would rather see a 12v fridge too. There is only one lithium under the pass seat, i would prefer two. The small roof area would be tight for solar of decent size. Its limited, only time will tell. Might be short lived. Interesting info on the American version.

RE: Class C basement washer and dryer

Rent a car. Pick economy for cheapest rate . They will give you whatever they have and its usually an upgrade from economy at no extra charge to you.

RE: Class C basement washer and dryer

While traveling , if you need to wash a small amount of clothes, place them in a HD contractor bag with soap, place inside the shower. Let it agitate while you bounce down the road. We have a sport-brella that has a reflective foil type liner , we set it up next to the campfire. The large umbrella spokes allow us to hang clothes to dry. It fits two chairs to keep wind and cold off your back while sitting at the campfire. Raises the temp too. Its cozy on cool nights. https://www.omegasports.com/sklz/sklz-sport-brella-premiere-red-white-blue-stripes-47793?gclid=CjwKCAjwoP6LBhBlEiwAvCcthFv6x8yRhMhgcpygCiMGFgx6UrjxdTPwPZp0VxpT7sC6dPi7VpOeBxoCoXcQAvD_BwE
