RE: 30amp Gen/50 Amp RV Generator Help

I don't think I have ever seen a MH in recent years that did not have a generator despite manufacturers calling them "options". Likely the dual air was the option with a QC5500 over the one air with the 4000. In either case I would bet dollars to donuts that it came with a genny. Maybe he had a problem with it, we'll never know.

RE: 30amp Gen/50 Amp RV Generator Help

This appears to be a newbie hit and run post. I was really curious why the OP wanted to do this with an onboard genny. Guess we'll never know.

RE: Motor coach with bunks recommendations for family

You may have better luck finding bunks or a similar arrangement if you look for a class C rather than a class A. Very generally speaking, class A's are frequently designed for a (retired?) couple, while class C's more frequently for a family. That is of course a generalization and not always true, but the trend is there; and it is more pronounced for diesel pusher class A's. This is not true. Perhaps 15 years ago that might have been the case, but not now. There is an entire segment of entry and mid level Class A's for families and each brand usually has a few bunk models some with bath and a half designs. To the OP, being a former ACE owner I wouldn't look there. They are great little entry level MH's but if you are looking for quality, you probably want to start further up the food chain. $90k is a healthy budget and I am sure you can find something like a Winnie a few years old in that price range. That said, if you are just looking for a weekender you can save a lot of cash on a used ACE. but if you are going to spend any sort of time in it and want quality I would look elsewhere.

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

No it not normal. I would book it in to a Chevy or Ford dealer now so it can be look at. I said Chevy or Ford due you did not state which chassis you have. I would say Ford given that it's a 2022.

RE: How fast do the gray and black tanks fill

We carry 5 gal jugs of water for cooking and drinking and that helps. As others have stated, use less water, take less and shorter showers. DW hates this, she loves a long shower. I Cringe the entire time she is in there when we don't have full hookups. I explain the issue - she doesn't care. Apparently it's my issue. :-)

RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

I guess we would need to know what you are comparing it to. Have you driven a Class A MH before or are you comparing it to a passenger vehicle?

RE: Macerator pump questions

The standard opening with a regular stinky slinky has the added benefit of physics to allow the tank to dump faster and with more force. A macerator can't leverage gravity and the weight of what's in the tank, but rather a mechanical grinder pump and it's a smaller hose. And you are pushing it 80' on level ground. So the process will be slower and with much less force. I had a built in macerator on a previous Class A and while it does have some advantages, I found that I would have to run the black tank flush a lot more.

Jim, I understand your frustration but there are two major reasons why vaccination is still a good idea. 1. As Mark listed above, unvaccinated people are 17X more likely to end up in the hospital. In all probability the cases you and your family members had would have been more serious. 2. Many people vaccinated do not get re-infected. The more we can limit the number of times this virus reproduces through infection, the greater the chance we can limit mutations that cause problems, like the Delta variant. Your experiences are evidence why it's still important to take reasonable preventive measures. Not sure about point number 2, would need to see stats on it. Quite the contrary to what I am reading and seeing personally. LOTS of vaccinated folks getting re-infected and some with symptoms as severe as non vaccinated folks. The vaccine does not mitigate transmission, especially with the Delta variant. It may minimize symptoms but so does antibodies developed from being previously infected. I think people had a belief that the vaccine was some sort of magic bullet and they ostracize people for not getting vaccinated. Truth is, being vaccinated does not stop you from transmitting. Moreover if you are asymptomatic you can transmit unknowingly. Vaccine mandates at this point are silly, if not for the transmission but the loss of efficacy after months and further lack of efficacy with the delta. Does an 8 month old vaccine card actually prove anything? Now they want you to get boosters. Will they continue to demand boosters every 8 months and a new booster for each new strain? All seems very - ready, shoot, aim.

RE: Roaches ugh!

Our experience is that Palmetto Bugs (American Coachroach) don't really infest, like other cockroaches. Usually, with Palmetto Bugs, what you see is all there is. If you are concerned, boric acid is the way to go. Both times we rented a storage unit here in GA, the unit was outlined with Boric acid to kill ants and roaches. -Michael This is my experience as well. Living in the south and a coastal area, they are all over the place but usually don't have a lot of interest in coming into your house. If they do, they are looking for food or water but they don't infest like German cockroaches.

RE: Does the Color of an HD Pickup Make a Difference?

Darker colors hold heat, show dirt and show paint fade faster.

RE: Roadside assistance

You already have RSA with your new truck as long as it's still under warranty.

RE: Storm alert Cat 4

What we learned from Florence is that surviving the storm is one thing, the aftermath is a whole other set of problems. It was 3 weeks until we could return to the area here in Wilmington. No power, no fuel, no food, roads closed from flooding and debris. Thank goodness we used our RV and evacuated to MD. We stayed there for a month until things were OK to return. That's one of the big advantages to having an RV, it's a great escape pod. Provided you leave soon enough. Wait too long and evacuation clogs up highways and fuel is nowhere to be found. I think you have to get a head of it by about 4 days. Good luck and I hope you guys stay safe.

RE: RV Travel Insurance ??

Never heard of travel insurance for camping. Each CG has their own cancellation policy. Read it before you book and make a decision. Usually, if you cancel far enough ahead you can get your money back - or at least with a small fee. If you cancel the day before arriving I would assume you eat the cost. The CG needs time to be able to rent that spot otherwise they are the ones who lose money. I have seen cases where they would not refund it and folks can "sell" their reservation to someone else who is able to take it.
way2roll 08/27/21 11:40am General RVing Issues

I got hit 2x with my old RV when I moved. I paid it in MD when I bought it and paid it again when I registered in NC. Not sure how that's legal but it happens. I bought a new FW in SC and registered in NC and paid the tax in my home state only. Same with my new truck, bought it in MD while in NC and paid the NC taxes. And I also have to pay the property tax every year.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford F250 7.3L

The issue with built in Nav is that once it's outdated the only way to upgrade is to swap the whole unit. I have built in NAV in my 7 year old Jeep and it is easy to update the software and the MAPS. They come out with a new map update at least once a year. However, it is very expensive. I believe it's $199 to upgrade the Maps so I am still using the 7 year old maps. They did have a special one time to update the Maps for $99 but I still didn't do it. I did update the NAV software (which was free) so the interface looks a bit more modern now. Right, so I mis spoke, maybe it's easier and/or cheaper just to update the whole unit.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford F250 7.3L

Ride "quality", especially empty, is worse on a F350. Ride should be the same between F350 and high capacity F250 This is really my only complaint with my truck. Empty it rides a little rough and bouncy. I back the PSI off to 60 when not towing and that helps. I guess you can pick your battles. The tradeoff is that when I am towing it rides like a Cadillac. That's what it's built to do, not a grocery getter.

RE: Towing with a 2022 Ford F250 7.3L

I'm reminded of a friend that has car with built in NAV. Years ago, it was awesome. now it's woefully outdated and clunky compared to newer apps. The issue with built in Nav is that once it's outdated the only way to upgrade is to swap the whole unit. I Use WAZE on my phone and it displays on the screen of my F350 and it works great. If I ever decide to use another NAV app, it's not problem.
