RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

The website says it’s a 3-stage that charges at 14.4 volts.Bring your voltmeter to verify. Please post the results. With my two new 6v batteries drained down to 11.2 volts, the charger didn’t go above 13.5v. Time for a converter - is the PD4655 still the one to buy or is there something new that I don’t know about? I will probably order from bestconverter.com again unless I find a deal somewhere.

RE: Will it pull my trailer?

I can't believe anyone is actual concerned with the OPs set up. Unless I missed something - I thought we were talking about a 3800 lb dry weight. Any lighter than that would be a tent trailer.

RE: camping with CPAP (no electric hookup)

Portable Battery/Power Generator Someone posted this on another site for CPAP users. I haven't tried it.

RE: New Truck

Thanks, guys. The measurements were with the ball 1” higher than the tongue and no WD. The truck itself sits rear high while empty. I’ll take it to a parking lot to do the final tweaking with the WD chains hooked up.I noticed the newer trucks sit high in the rear. My '17 Ford drops about 3-4 inches with a 7-800 lb hitch. I think you will be amazed at how that truck tows that trailer. The newer trucks have come a long way as far a towing. Congrats on the new truck.

RE: Grand Design Imagine TT

We liked Outdoors and I would prefer to buy from a local manufacturer here in Oregon. We bought the GD because they were more willing to make deal. It wasn't an apples to apples comparison because the GD was and '18 and the Outdoors was a '19 but there should not have been a $9k difference between similar bunkhouse models. The GDs have to be shipped across the country to get to Oregon.

RE: Grand Design Imagine TT

We just purchased an'18 GD Imagine and are pretty impressed with how it's finished inside and out. We like the fact that heat ducts are built into the cabinets and not the floor. I'm not a huge fan of the 1k payload and a few minor issues but love the heated recliners. I don't know how I survived all these years camping without heated recliners. Napping is going to be my new hobby.

RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

If it were me and I was considering changing the charger out I would step up and install an inverter/charger of 1000 watts or more. With a remote display you can adjust the charge settings that best fit your batteries to ensure proper charge. This way if you ever install any solar panels the inverter/charger is already in place.I am planning to add an inverter at some point. Is the unit you're describing separate from the converter? Do you have examples of name brands that I could research? Thanks.

RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

I met another RV.NETter in a campground in Monument Valley about a month ago, and he told me his WFCO never went into boost mode. I told him that WFCO converters were known for that. I told him that if he wants fast, efficient charging, swap it out for a PD4655V. The same advice applies to you. That's what I put in our last trailer. I posted a DIY a few years ago: https://www.rv.net/forum/index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/25064573/print/true.cfm

RE: Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

Thanks for all the replies. It doesn't sound like people are too happy with this unit. This was the web site I was referring to: https://wfcoelectronics.com/product/wf-8955-55-amp/ At least they have "new decorative doors".

Is a converter upgrade necessary anymore?

We upgraded our last 2008 Tahoe because the Parallax converter would take a day to charge 2 6-volt batteries. We went with a Progressive Dynamics 4-stage that worked really well. We are getting ready to pick up our 2018 GD Imagine 2800BH and it has a WD-8955PEC. The website says it’s a 3-stage that charges at 14.4 volts. I would think that would be adequate for dry camping. Any experiences with these units? Thanks.

RE: Do I need a WDH with a 25ft TT

I tow a 30ft trailer with a '17 F250 6.7l without WDH or sway bars. The trailer is under 8k and the truck weighs in at 8200lb. I have a great ride even in the wind. My truck does have anti-sway electronics but I don't think it has ever come on.

RE: Aluminum vs Fiberglass

Did anyone mention the price difference between the two siding types. From what I've observed, its around 20% more for fiberglass siding.

RE: In the Market for a New Trailer

We just bought an Imagine by Grand Design, 29 feet, awesome unit. All led lighting, solar port hookup outside for your panel, prewired for a backup camera, 3 year warranty, 5 year tire warranty, 5 year axle warranty, I can find no flaws in the construction, tpo roof, I went from an 05 cougar fifth which we bought new and had for 13 years, to this Imagine bumper pull, which I expect to own for 13 more years. The quality of the Imagine far exceeds my cougar in just about every way, I urge you to look at them. I haven't walked through any of these but the 2400BH would probably work for use. 2400BH We have an RV show next month - I'll have to check them out. Thanks.

RE: In the Market for a New Trailer

Lance or one of Northwoods or OutdoorRV offerings would be my choice. If for some reason you dont want to support local manufacturers, then Heartland would be your next best choice. I would prefer to buy a trailer manufactured locally if they have the floor plan we're looking for.

In the Market for a New Trailer

After 11 years of adventures, we decided to sell our 2008 30' Tahoe TH for something a little smaller and less dated. So far we are liking the floor plans with the opposing slides and bunks. Specifically: - Heartland Wilderness 2375BH - Forest River Vibe 257DBI - Coachmen Apex 259BHSS I would love to hear any experiences with these models or suggestions for others. We like the rear bathrooms with a door to the outside and are trying to keep in under 28 feet. Thanks.

Heartland Wilderness Experiences

We are interested in the Heartland Wilderness 2375BH floor plan with kitchen and dinette slides. I would like to hear any experience with these or similar trailers. We’ve never owned anything made yet Heartland. Thank you.
