RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Germax, First welcome to the Forum,also to the Former Rental Owners Club! I will add you to the list, you will be #123. I have noticed in earlier posts for some reason Cruise Canada in their 23A and 19G they don't come with a generator, as all the US ones do. I had a book mark on the subject but the magazine that it was in has purged its archives. There was another member that had a 19G that didn't have a generator,its space was like yours. He built a shelf to put batteries on,I also can't link those photos. So I am going to PM him and see if he has some Photos of the shelf and how it was mounted. Good luck in all your mods and have a good camping season.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Couple of follow-up comments on my 28A. Has anyone installed a swivel seat base in the passenger side - with or without replacement seats? I have installed one on my Class C with the stock seat. It is on a Chevy chassis,but on This thread there are a few that did it on a Ford Chassis. There are 3 MFGs that make the seat base. Discount Van and Truck Then there is Sportsmobile And the one that I got mine from Shop4Seats I think it depends on the year model which one will fit. You might look at This Video to help you along. I really like mine, good luck in this.

RE: Smoke alarm

I find that hardwired smoke detectors are unnecessary and often PIA. Suggest you toss and buy an inexpensive battery operated combo fire/CO detector - you have to change the battery once a yr. No big deal. I agree. We did this too after being annoyed by the hardwired one. I also agree,my hardwired one failed and the replacement was not being made anymore. After a lot of research I settled on This one change out the batteries once a year.

RE: How to empty fresh water tank without pump?

If you can find your water tank it may have a drain on one side of it like this, height=220 Turn the valve so lines up with the pipe and it will drain under the RV. Or if you can follow the line to the water pump sometime there is a valve there that you open and it lets the water out under the RV.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

My 28A came home with me today. Now I'm looking at how to mount the (Haloview) rear view camera. I'm going to power it from the marker light but I'm unsure about the best way of fastening the mount to the body. 4 holes and self tapping screws? Epoxy? Other? Ideas gratefully received. eldel That sounds great! I will put you on the list of happy Former Rental Owners.Welcome to the club,you will be #122 I did find a thread that may be of help when you install that rear view camera. Rear View Camera Install Good luck on the install,please come on back and tell us how it went and any pictures of the install if possible,I know that it will help others. I hope that you have a great camping season with that new to you RV.

nrbrooker Welcome to the Forum and the Former Rental Owners Club! I will add you to the list of happy owners,you will be #121. I have a post that may be of help for that battery tray,Look at This The pictures may help a welder do what you want. It is very close to what you want and can be welded up. I found that when I needed welding done and was looking for a good welder I went to YELP and found what I needed and got a very good job at a fair price. You might try these in your area. Again welcome to the Forum and the Club,when or if you get this done please come on back and let us know how it went,there are many others it may help out.

RE: Replacing PD 9145A

+1 for PD9245 This is a great choice but they have a better one that I bought from Best converter it is a 9200 PD9245 modified to put out 14.8 Volts of boost instead of the 13.6. I can't find it on the website but if you call and ask Randy, he may still have them in stock. 888-828-1893

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

eldel,that sounds great. Your list of upgrades sounds very good. On the TPMS make sure that you put them on metal valve stems, I would suggest the Extended Valve Stems from Dually Valve is a great choice. They make checking the air pressure a lot easier and are made for TPMS use. A good set of Bilstein Shocks would also be a great addition. Good Luck on the pickup of the RV and please come on back and tell us how it all went.

RE: Battery Disconnect Confusion

No, I don't have a "battery boost" for the engine battery. Thank you!!!! Are you sure? I have not seen a class C that didn't have one. They are designed for the situation that you described.This is how it works. I should be located to the left of the steering wheel on the dashboard Looks something like this. height=220

RE: Anyone use Quick connect for water hose?

I like This one the male end fits better and is shorter than the other types. It may fit behind your door. I use quick disconnects on everything.

RE: Toilet with a chute ?

I've been RVing for 32 years, and have absolutely no idea what you guys are talking about. WTH is a "chute" in an RV toilet? On every RV I have owned, the toilet bowl flushes/opens to the tank directly below, and I have never experienced "splashing" when flushing the toilet. I too ; even after reading the comments ; am confused. There is some drop there, especially when the tank it empty but never enough to cause any "splash" or problems. Is this maybe because I've always had Travel Trailers and is there something different with you that have the big RV's ?? :h Sometimes I think that people don't read the whole thread,the splash factor has nothing to do with the tank but in the design of the toilet itself as shown in the pictures on the link that I posted Look at the pictures and the green arrow, clicking on them make them larger and easier to read the graphic,start at the top then scroll down the last few pictures will show how the splash ends up between the inner and outer wall of the toilet.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

MtnBikeMarty Great work on the suspension up grade and sharing with the other members. Now if they had put on a set of Bilstein shocks on when you had the first part done you would have had a really solid ride but it looks like you are happy with all your upgrades. This one is also going to my archives to help others when needed.. Great Job on all of the pictures and documentation of the work.

RE: Toilet with a chute ?

Thanks least YOU know what I am talking about! I will check out the Bravura. :B The things I like is the foot flush, larger seat,the lid and seat comes off easily for cleaning. Also the water module is easy to access for hook up and if needed to be replaced it is simple,most others to replace a leaking water module you have to remove the whole toilet.

RE: Toilet with a chute ?

ummmm.............. why? On a lot of RV toilets the bottom of the toilet is open to the tank,there is a splash factor.Take yours off and see. If it does not have a chute things will splash around. I found this out when I changed mine out to one with a chute, straight to the tank with no splash factor. It was quite a mess under the toilet and smelly too. Here look at this. The pictures explain it better.
