RE: Motorhome Fuel Economy

Even at 25 that is terrific. I agree-- terrific economy. 11 KM/liter= 25.87 MPG. Note, this is to the U.S. gallon. To the Imperial gallon it works out to a little over 30 MPG.

RE: house batteries & heat with 120v

Should be fine. Typically a dead battery is not completely dead. The only downside is the charger will run pretty much continuously but if it's only for a stray night, it's not a big deal. Actually, if the battery has a bad cell, and the converter is on 24/7 it could be a VERY big deal. Charging what would amount to a 10 VDC battery (one dead cell) at 13+ VDC could cause severe overheating, boiling electrolyte, etc. A battery with a bulging case and/or the smell of sulfuric acid are a dead giveaway that the battery is being dangerously overcharged.

RE: La Siesta Rv Park Then And Now

Stayed there (La Siesta, not the City Market) many many times. Always enjoyed it and the easy access to downtown. Not fancy, but very convenient.

RE: Jam nuts & extenders

Welcome Please tell us what the "Jam nuts and extenders" are used for/where they are located/picture if possible.

RE: You're kidding...Right?

I will go with tire manufacturer's recommendations rather than "do it yourself" evaluation. Do it yourself ASSUMES everyone is equally qualified to make these important safety decisions. NOT TRUE. Heck, it is hard enough to get most drivers to stop ignoring their "low tire" warning light. They pay their engineers to do this for you!

RE: You're kidding...Right?

Load as you will travel. Go to any truck stop that weighs and get your AXLE weights. ASSUME left right weight distribution is 45/55 Use that "55" to go to Toyo's inflation chart to determine the MINIMUM PSI for that axle. Add 10% so you don't have to worry about that every time you do a REALLY BIG Walmart shopping trip. All tires on an axle get the same PSI. DONE. If you want it simpler-- not going to happen and still keep you safe AND with the best ride possible while being safe.

RE: Chevrolet 4500 service

Yup, for best info, we need to know what kind of work you need done. Some may be easy for a mobile tech, some may require shop equipment.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

Call Spartan on Monday with your VIN and they can tell you very easily what tank drains your chassis came with. That doesn't mean if manual valve that the coach maker remembered to pull a lanyard to an easy to reach location.

RE: Automatic air tank drain valves

AND, what chassis. The air tank drains are part of your chassis, not coach. Thanks.

RE: Safety question

Actually, my answer is SOMETIMES. If I have safe room with the suspension all the way down, I don't bother with safety stands. If close or I wouldn't have room where I want to work with the suspension all the way down, ABSOLUTELY I use jack stands or block the suspension.

RE: Magnum MS 2812 Charger/Inverter Issue

Check your neutral connection in your original breaker box where shore cable is attached. I bet it is loose. Yup, 180 VAC means you are loosing the NEUTRAL somewhere. If it has happened in multiple parks, highly likely it is a connection in your shore power cord or coach wiring, ATS or breaker box.

RE: Amps Draw and Voltage Drop Question 2

But, another way to look at it is how many amps are drawn from the battery. If smaller gauge wire, instead of the vast majority of the amps turning the motor some are turned into HEAT by the resistance in the wire. So, the answer really depends on how you phrase the question. Bottom line is you want to maximize the amps taken out of the battery that are turned into RPM by the motor, not wasted in the wire.

RE: Generator runs fine, but no electricity in coach

Yes, turn OFF and back ON the breakers on the generator itself.

RE: What is too hot

Not sure what the temp is, but if they hit 150 I would be slowing down! Actually, I would STOP and check for bad wheel bearing, brakes hanging up, etc.

RE: An Australian Class C liked by Lazydays

Yes, looks like a Class A from the few original post pictures. BTW, absolutely enjoyed our driving trip around eastern Australia in 2019. Arrive Cairns. Back from Adelaide. 7,500+ KM. Hello airbnb's! GREAT country. Yes, we rented a "patriotic" car-- Subaru OUTBACK!

RE: Does it matter?

Sway bar doesn't impact alignment and may help sway issue slightly. Guess you replaced idler arm (steering arm?) due to wear? Have your alignment shop set the caster close to the maximum spec. All good advice.

RE: Need Tires

247/75R22.5 is a pretty close match by other tire makers. Verify your rim size.

RE: Where to get steering alignment done for a class A?

Assuming no worn parts (we don't know how many miles on it, or if chassis lubrication has been done as it should) there isn't much to a front end "alignment" on that chassis. With its solid front axle, CAMBER can only be changed by bending the solid axle. Caster can only be changed by adding/subtracting solid metal shims (and caster is really not a significant factor when it comes to tire wear) Toe- IN is really the only normal "adjustment". And, it can be checked with nothing more than a tape measure. No exotic machinery needed. Yes, to check rear axle to frame alignment to insure that the coach is not "dog tracking" which can also affect tire wear, is a little more complex.

RE: Re-sealing Winnebago radius roof in "J" channel

I would NOT consider 5200. Tooooooo permanent. 4200 perhaps. But, would sure look at adhesion properties of it vs the Winnebago-recommended product. And would likely ask Winnebago their thoughts before venturing into a brave new world.

RE: Portable Wind Turbine as a power supplement?

This ECO-WORTHY solar power kit is amazing because it combines the power generation capabilities of a wind turbine with the sun-catching skills of a solar panel. With such a wide range of operations, this kit can offer the user with a virtually constant source of electricity. It's ideal for traveling to places that aren't as windy but receive a lot of sun, or vice versa. A little short on FACTS. Would like to see a wind speed vs output. The 400 watts they advertise is produced at 13 MPS= 29 MPH. WOW.
