Does anyone know if the 2015 Majestic 28a has a CABIN AIR FILTER?

Usually, air filters are located (in cars) behind/under the glove box.

I called one store to ask if they have a cabin air filter for the e450 Super Duty V10 and they said they don't and there might not be one.

Anybody here know? If so, I'd like to change mine as I haven't since I purchased them.

Thanks,
Chris


I heard today from Thor that the 28a Majestic has no CABIN air filter. One less thing to change I guess lol...

No insights on my question regarding how to replace the water pump in my 2009 28A I posted a few days ago? Hoping for some guidance on pump model, etc. Thanks!

After new batteries at Costco the engine would not turn over.
Also a GM van same thing. The batteries says it has 1000 amps but really zero amps and much less than 12 volts.
After 7 months the engine still didn’t start. Damaged the engine ?!
I have both in a good garage and mechanics but they cannot do anything to help.
There is some information on Costco,, asking for more information like year of manufacture and Costco card.

If you find out anything please post it here.

After having my 23A for over a year I thought I would check in.
I haven't had really any negative issues with the RV until recently, and it concerns the house battery. It seems I haven't been giving the battery the love it deserves. CA said they put a new battery in the unit before I bought it, and the battery is a rather expensive battery (Lifeline 100 AH AGM), but since I can't find anything on the battery telling me when it was made, and I suspect that if the battery was "new" a year before I purchased the rv, it probably wasn't charged or maintained as it should have been.
When I first got the rv, I put a number of long trips on it, which should have fully charged the AGM battery. It's only been lately that I think it doesn't hold a charge as it should. But then, how I'm using the rv now has changed, With the cost of gas, I don't make the long trips anymore.

So I think either the battery has seen better days due to the way it's been used prior to my ownership, and/or the way I've been charging the battery hasn't done it any good. For example, I thought that simply driving the rv a long distance would fully charge the battery. No, the alternator will only give it a bulk charge; to fully charge the battery up to 100%, I need to trickle charge it for a couple of days. Who would have thought that?

For a while I've been researching adding solar power to help fully charge the battery. I've learned a ton of information on batteries and solar on the Sportsmobile website. I realize there's information available on various RV sites, but I found that after reading them, they didn't answer all of my questions. On the Sportsmobile site, all of the information I was looking for was in one spot.

the link-->https://www.sportsmobileforum.com/forums/f20/faq-s-battery-problems-and-common-power-calculators-1940.html

Hopefully, this link will help someone discover everything they need to know about how to take care of their house batteries.

IMPORTANT PREVENTATIVE NOTE: My RV only had 2 brackets in the front edge of the black waste tank holding it up to the underside of the RV. Each of those brackets had places for THREE screws, but they only had TWO screws in each. So, essentially it was being held up by 4 screws. I have since added a 3rd screw to each of those brackets AND added a 3rd bracket on the front edge. You should take a look at what you have on yours and you might want to add some extra screws and perhaps another bracket BEFORE you have this problem and then you can avoid it in the first place! I have another identical Majestic 28a and it also only had 2 brackets with 2 screws on each so I also added more screws and another bracket to that RV as well. I also added 2 additional screws on the rear 2 brackets (there wasn't room for a 3rd bracket).

Good luck!
Chris
