RE: 2022 Tiffin - F-53 Chassis - Brakes

If it has a Ford chassis, it has disk brakes. If it was driven any distance to the dealer, the brakes are broken in, and if it is fairly empty, the brakes should be touchy. Be carful doing a panic stop, you could end up with a seatbelt burn, it does stop the quickly, even with anti-lock brakes.

RE: Why is the generator cycling??

How frequent is the cycling. Nobody has ask that. Running up and down every second is the air/fuel mix (Carb setting) on a gasoline generator Running at low amprage for oh say 20 hours then Kicking up.. Progressive Dynamics Charge Wizard Running low for oh say an hour then kicking up usually about 3 amps. Fridge auto switched to AC There are more options too. (not sure of the fridge cycle time)Its a Diesel Generator, not gas.

RE: Would you switch from Class A to Travel Trailer

How would setting up a jeep to tow cost 2400-3000? If you pay to have it set-up for towing. The only fix for fueling, when towing a TT, is to have a diesel powered pickup. In the end, you will have to make the decision.

RE: Is B-B charger for Lifepo4 lithium batteries needed?

Duel post, sorry.

RE: Is B-B charger for Lifepo4 lithium batteries needed?

Grover, I believe you're on the right track if your new batteries have a built in charge controller. As far as alternators not being able to fully charge house batteries, that's non-¢. A steady charge at 14 volts for a full day of driving will fully charge lead/acid house batteries. If you are concerned about over heating you alternator with Li batteries, why not put a temperature sensor on the alternator before and after the battery change and see what happens. I see so much hype about burning out alternators but no solid evidence. RichardThis is true. Your engine control computer, or what ever you want to call it, is what is controlling the alternator output by battery voltage over time. I believe this is being over-though. Lithium biased batteries have a max. discharge and charge rate, in amps. Exceeding either will damage or destroy them. Its your money, you seem to have a grasp on realty. Make your choice biased on you knowledge.

RE: Anyone interested in 83 Pace Arrow Tear down and Rebuild?

While I appreciate your woodworking skill and creativity in building the shelf, why not just use a full extension drawer guide? They are sturdy and have a built in stop and easy to install.Exactly!

RE: RV magazine

Thank you Crawford.

RE: RV magazine

“They” is CW. The magazine business is in almost as much trouble as newspapers. It isn’t going to change. The first issue had to be the best effort and probably was. The “old” days are gone. Coke isn’t a magazine. and you didn't understand what the meaning was .....Please explain, as I do not understand either.

RE: RV magazine

Yea, I'm sorry, but I will also drop it as it is not filling our needs anymore. I do not see any form of RVing being happy with this new format.

RE: Removed over/stove...replaced with two burner induction.

I guess this works as long as you have a "current bush" handy, or your run your generator. We, like quite a few, camp without amities. Granted we do run our generator when the temps get into the mid, to high 90s to run the air. The oven is something my wife would really miss.

RE: Frame stringer to bulkhead broken welds under water tanks

You might try an rental place for the jacks and stands to do the work.

RE: Questions About People's Knowledge Of Various Issues

Take Doug's advice. There may be certain things that would be nice to have with children, and one night stops. First at least one slide will be a great help with children. An auto leveling system for quick set-up and moving. The rest is just your for pleasurer. Good luck.

RE: Propane shut off

So, all this consern about safety and fire, how many travel with the propane shut-off? It would seen that problems would be more lilely when moving, than when stored. When it's in storage you aren't there to smell it or hear the LP alarm to take any action and mitigate a disaster.I believe by the time you smell propane in a moving RV, it will be all over but the bleeding. This post make no sense at all. The reason they add the smell to the LP is for safety. But I guess if you feel the need to post something....????
