RE: 2004 Forest River Georgetown - questions

Even though you have reconsidered, the spark plug issue was fixed mid 02. The 04 V-10 and 4R100 were solid power trains. We went from a 35ft TT and an Excursion to our Current 12 Georgetown 350 TS. Personally I will not tow another TT. Far too much setup and breakdown and well as booking up. Good luck in you search. I’m sure you’ll find something that’s exactly what you want!

RE: Inverter installation question.

1. Is this compartment sealed? Is it part of the other storage compartments(they share a lot of air space) 2. Do you plan to store items in this compartment? 3. The WORST thing to do with ANY INVERTER,(especially an Inverter/Charger) is to install in a compartment that has NO FRESH air available. There is a reason Inverters have a cooling fan. To cool the Inverter when operating. IF YOU DO NOT HAVE A FRESH AIR SOURCE, HOW WILL THE INVERTER STAY COOL? 4. One of the most common causes of Inverter failure is lack of fresh air to keep the Inverter cool. This is one reason you see a lot of OEM inverter installs mounted to the ceiling of a large storage compartment that allows some fresh air to get to the Inverter. Doug If the doors are closed, HOW does it get any fresh air??????????????? Besides you now have a dorm refer adding to the heat exhaust. Doug Yes it’s is sealed. It has the dorm fridge in it. It is the large double door compartment that goes through to the other side. It does get fresh air, one fan pulls air in, the other pushes it out. As I said, I have 2 fans pulling and pushing. From WHERE are you getting the "FRESH" air to Push and Pull? Doug It pulls air in from outside the compartment. Then the other fan pushes air out of the compartment.

RE: The horrible roads are killing the fun.

My 2012 rides amazing. I have (from the previous owner) Sumos frt and rear, Koni FSDs, Hellwig sway bars front and rear, and a Blue OX true center steering stabilizer. Also make sure your tire pressures are set to the proper pressure. You’ll need to have it weighed as ready for a trip. I’m betting right now your tire pressure are too high!

RE: Inverter installation question.

Anything electric or electronic stored in the same compartment as wet batteries would concern me. The batteries are under the stairs and open and the inverter is in the compartment next to that. So yes, separated!

RE: Inverter installation question.

Thanks. I also forgot to mention that I currently have a 1k watt inverter in the same compartment right now that powers only my small dorm fridge. I also have 2 small computer fans venting the compartment. It hasn’t been an issue and probably won’t be with the newer one powering most of the MH.

Inverter installation question.

Hello. So I’m installing an inverter in my class A. I plan on installing it in the basement storage by the entry door which is right next to the batteries, about 3 feet. My only concern is the heat. My basement gets very hot when on the road in the summer, will this trigger the over temp shut down? I do only plan on using it when the generator isn't running, and that is on days when it’s cool outside. Like when we head down to TX. In Nov. In the summer heat of 90 plus deg I’ve seen the compartment temps up to the 110’s! On regular cooler days maybe 85-90. I know some manuf install them in the exact same location with no issues. Looking for advice and opinions. Thanks!

RE: How many of you own an EV?

When you go to one of those charging stations like they have here at Walmart, how much does it cost to recharge your EV? Idk, but I tried to find the picture of charging our SRT8 at an EV spot, must've deleted it. Only parking spot left in a parkade (Canadian for parking garage) was for EVs, but I saw a Tesla parked in a dino burner spot, so I opened the gas tank filler door and stuck the charging cable in the filler neck. Was good to go for the night. But the gas tank still read half empty in the morning.:? Just install a battery tender and run the cord to the fuel door, plug it into the level 1 charger.

I just got a 36V golf cart for free does that count?

RE: Class ‘A’ motor homes FORD chassis.

Yes, the 3/36 chassis warranty is good from the date of retail sale to the first customer, not the builder! Someone at the dealer doesn’t know what they are doing.

RE: Time for new tires already?

30k on LT tires is about right. Huh? Or do you mean on OE LT tires? The Pirellis on my Excursion went around 40k. I replaced them with some BFG AT TAs and they on,y went about 30k. I replaced them with some General Grabber HTS and they went about 45k. OE AT tires will only go 30-35k at most when towing. HT (highway tires) will last longer as it’s a straight highway tread with a harder compound. AT tires (All Terrain) have a more rugged tread and a softer compound.

RE: Leaky roof, any ideas where it’s coming from ?

If they just put a roof on it and you are seeing this, avoid it. It’s one thing to have it happen after you buy it, it’s another to purchase knowing it’s currently their.

RE: Diesel Ram Owner Forced to Scrap Truck !

I just ran into something close to this at work. We got a truck from one of our other dealers for a possible trans issue. They took it in on trade and sold it not knowing it had an issue. Well it turns out it’s been, lifted, deleted, tuned, Def tank removed as well as DPF and catalyst. I told them to just wholesale it and be done with it! It will be a problem later on when the customer has to have it tested and they found out we sold it like that! It will cost too much for us to make it stock. Best to sell it in an area where they don’t have inspections and the buyer won’t care! Excuse me for finding it hard to believe a dealer would not find any of all that stuff when doing a trade in valuation. Any time I ever let one value a trade within minutes they could tell me where every single scratch or paint chip was, tires needed replaced as they had put a micrometer on the tread depth, and knew the bumper end cap was replaced with an aftermarket part after a run in with a groundhog. They could also tell I smoked a cigarette in it once on the way home from buying it 5 years earlier. They could not see the DEF tank was gone? Lol. I think your employer needs to fire whoever approved that one immediatly. I don’t know, but places take in any trade, but this one should’ve went right to wholesale. But I went to fill it with diesel because it was on E and I think that is the problem with the truck it was running out of fuel on acceleration. Well the 1/2 of what I put in runs on the ground. This was from another dealer, some places have people up front that don’t know a thing about cars, even though they sell them!

RE: Alcohol Detection Systems in All New Vehicles

At this point, cell phone use while driving is a bigger danger than drinking and driving!

RE: what size inverter.

Just got a 3000W inverter for my MH. It’s only to run outlets and maybe the microwave on the road. I only have 2 batteries, but will never pull the full wattage. It when it comes time for batteries I’m thinking 3 100Ah LifePo batteries.

RE: Stolen Ford 350

I hope the settlement they agreed to was the down payment back and closing of the loan with no money out of their pockets!

RE: Changing oil.

Must be a 15,000+ mile trip? Please don’t tell us you go 15k miles on your V-10/ V8 gas oil changes?!!!!
