RE: Installed generator stolen?

That would be rare. Just like stealing an rooftop AC unit. I have never heard of one being stolen but i guess it could if the perp had enough time, tools and maybe out of the public eye. Dealer or repair shop lot or unoccupied storage facility with no security.

RE: Class C RV model recommendations

rv class c floorplans , most poular Gulf Stream Conquest 6280 might be ur best bet just keep in mind, it might be a good idea to have a floorplan where you will have full use of the rv with the slides 'in'. There will be times when you might need to be stealth while parking overnight somewhere or .... if the slides malfunction, you'll be able to continue on. Getting a rv repair appointment or on-site mobile repair might be a challenge

RE: Class C RV model recommendations

Hi, I have a walk around bed--28'5". I found it much harder to get used to driving than my previous 27'. Tail swing goes up exponentially with length to wheel base. Ideal is 55%, and I'm at 53%. Having had both gas and diesel, I'd never buy a diesel unit. To much buck for not enough bang. x2 owned a diesel, wasn't worth it unless you are using a diesel for a work vehicle to make money or need to haul very heavy loads....its not worth it

RE: Engine cover (doghouse) removal

Access panel? Is there an access panel in the "footwell". Do I need to look up under the dash to find it? Thank you so much for the help. It might not look like a conventional cover but the fuse box does have tabs on the front that you can lift off the front part. Squat down and use a flashlight , as you look at the brake pedal, its to the left of the pedal on the firewall.

RE: Replacement catalytic converter

It seems to be with the 'more friendly' emissions vehicles . I'm reading there are different amounts of metals contained inside the various cc's. Some manufactures might be more than the others.

RE: Looking at class c questions on maintenance

I know I can change it myself. I was actually wondering where people go when they are out on a trip and needed to have some service done, like an oil change for example. I know if something is rv related I would need to go to an rv shop You are a member here for 20 years , nothing much will be any different running a 25’ class C. :) Handle it the same way you would operating your fiver and HD pickup. Get yourself a road service company. AAA Coach-Net Good Sam road service Make one phone call, tell them what you need. They find you someone that can accommodate a class C.

RE: Looking at class c questions on maintenance

Ford or GM dealerships often do not work on trucks or rvs due to garage bay size limitations. Any car service station , doesn't have to be a Ford or GM dealership, will be able to perform most services and repairs 'out of doors' if weather is permitting. If its a Ford or GM, its a just a van chassis which is high enough off the ground to crawl under for oil service. You won't be paying a commercial truck shop labor rate either. Some commercial shops now are in the $200/hr range and put rv recreational folks second on their 'priority list'. They take care of repeat service contract commercial accounts, where guys need trucks to earn a living before they take of rv people that use their rigs for playtime. That has been made clear to me more than once.

RE: BORN FREE's Kim Olson still in the RV business?

Does anyone know if Kim Olson, Customer Service Rep. at Born Free for 30+ years, is still in the RV business? Its page 4 of this post It does not appear that anyone here knows. If you are seriously trying to find him , go see a private investigator who is licensed to do searches with software thats not avl to you or anyone else.

RE: Best mileage ever on a great albeit short trip...

I remember working through the 1974/1975 gasoline crises when gas climbed to $1.00. It seems that it remained at those prices and then some. Who knows how this is going to play out. It seems like there is some other force managing the puppeteer. Klutch , i wish you a speedy recovery. The follow up PT is the not the so pleasant part. You’ll get thru it .

RE: Best mileage ever on a great albeit short trip...

I now often just recharge the coach batteries by idling it periodically when camping. Phil, did you install a DC to DC charger ?

Well, you know what they are going to tell you. “It’s the new $5/ gal gasoline giving better mpg”.

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

Tbr2015, There are many youtubes to view for selecting tow bars. The link here is informative and shows how to remedy a few snags that can occur. Blue Ox tow bar setup

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

As BFL13 suggested…rent one. I think that’s the best advice . Especially now that owners here have relayed their good experiences with Sprinters. You need to check the long haul comfort for two people with seating and sleeping space. That’s where we all spend 50% of our life. If your passenger is not comfy it wont matter too much if your bath is wet or dry. You now also have non Sprinter general class C info that was provided from others like myself, that offer things you may or may not have thought of. Driving one loaded up as you plan to use it will allow its suspension to work . It will probably drive better than short test , driving an empty one from a dealers lot.

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

some one said only a mb dealer can do repairs? I live in ohio have a great service shop just down the road, not a mb shop. Yes, there are shops that can change parts and fluids. I was told that non-network shops do not have the needed software for certain repairs. Like code related repairs. Maybe things are different now than they 12 mos ago , Not 100% sure but anyone considering a Sprinter should do some research before plopping down down that kind of money. Expect to pay for parts if out of factory warranty !! Be wary of extended service contracts ! Specialty rv shops are in the $175/ hr labor range in many areas. Having a shop near home is a different ballgame than away from home. Especially when in more remote areas.

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

I went Ford. My MB car dealers and my two rv dealers told me they would not touch a Sprinter. It has to be a network Sprinter dealership or repair center. I got scared off. I really wanted to try a Sprinter but im very happy with my Fords 4000 lb payload and 7500 tow capacity. Its extremely difficult to overload a 24’ E450. Your toad will be your cargo trailer as well. Don't worry about lack of storage as long as you are towing a car. Have you driven a C ? My C is rv number 11 . We get so much more use from our small C than any of our trailers . We use it year round for family visiting, shopping, events etc. Hospital security gave us a special spot while caring for family in rehab. The beauty of a 24’ C. Have you driven one ? Its not the same as driving a fiver with a rock solid, smooth , quiet pickup. Its a different ride. You can hear the rattles of the coach and everything inside it. Something you DON’T hear when towing a trailer. It will take time to use foam waffle sheets to quiet things down. The trim around my microwave drove me nuts until i discovered that rattle.

RE: Water Issue

Check valves sometimes can repair themselves but if not there are many youtube videos that show you how to fix or replace. P.S. its always a good idea to have a full tank of water in case the campgrounds city water system develops a problem. Its happened to me a couple of times.
