RE: Should I consider gas burner

" But so far it's got us where we want to go." Well that is the important part right? Just querious what are your complaints on the Navistar engine? Bill Navistar doesn't have the HP or torque. Same Allison transmission. I'm not about to do an engine swap. 2012 was the last year (at least for the Tiffin chassis) NOT to have to use DP fluid. I like the fact I can fuel up and go. I think we're getting about 11 MPG towing the Smart. So far no problem getting up some of the hills on I40 in Middle TN. It also has 19.5" tires which I just had to buy 6. At $2400, I like that.

RE: Converter replacement

I did finally get my answer from Progressive's website. Under a list of FAQs they suggested against upping the amperage of the converter as it could overload the wiring resulting in overheating. I'll follow their lead and stay with a 60 amp. We have 2 6V GC batteries. All 3 TVs and video equipment run off the inverters. Drains the batteries quick if the converter isn't charging. I have it out of the MH now and plugged in nothing at the leads. All 3 fuses check good. Thanks for everybody's help.

RE: Converter replacement

Our old unit went out. I'm not very electrically inclined. Perhaps shouldn't be doing this, but the old one came out easy enough. I'm always afraid of buying an electrical unit like this with no return. It's only a few more $$ for the 70 amp and almost $120 for the 80.

Converter replacement

I'm about to order another converter. I have a Progressive Dynamics 9200 series 60 amp. Question: what would upgrading to a 70 or 80 amp in this series get me?

RE: Should I consider gas burner

Just came across this old thread and went through it again. We wound up buying a 2012 Tiffin Allegro Breeze 32BR. It has been some journey. Some unexpected maintenance.The main thing I would change is the Navistar engine. I would much rather have the Cummins. But so far it's got us where we want to go.
