Where did you wire it to...I have an extra battery in each front wheel well not tied to anything using both with alligator clips...My house battery never gets low because I use the other two for the heavy work...

Did you link the wheel well battery to the TC battery?

Ipad keyboard errors lol

My generator compartment has heavy battery leads where I was able to tie to the same electrical posts and run an Anderson connector out of the compartment to my truck. The run is a little longer than going directly to the batteries, but I did not have to drill any holes.

I connected it and ran it parallel with the house battery.

Last November when I woke up in the morning and the furnace had run a lot during the night the generator wouldn't start so I figured this was a good approach to eliminate that problem.

A good friend of mine was the Lance distributor here in Utah up until just a few years ago when he sold his dealership.

I bought this one used off an RV lot so I called him and he did the walk thru with me via the phone.

He told me that the aluminum roof was a good thing and wished they had used them longer than they did.

I just tied it to the house battery. They're little holes. [emoticon]

The 945 is our idea of the perfect layout. Stove on one side and microwave on the other that way my wife and be cooking on thing while I'm preparing the other. LOTS of counter space compared to most others. And best of all NO slide. We have had two. We totaled the first one in 2013 when we had a blow out and totaled the truck, camper and tow jeep.

Sorry about your accident. [emoticon]

Its perfect for me. I love the extra counter space too and I don't need a slide either.

With the built in generator it doesn't get any better. [emoticon]

Same reason I have a camper.
I live in the heart of the Piute Trail. We went thru Mayfield and up 12 Mile Canyon.
Weather was perfect and we had a great time..


Looks like you got a great old camper. I was told the old Lances were built better than recent ones. In any case it also looks like you have a great place to use it. I have relatives in Mt Pleasant and my father was born in Wales. It has been a while since I visited but still remember some of it.
