RE: House Battery charging

The WF series are not good. Consider replacement with something else. I would agree,I would replace it with a Progressive Dynamics unit. Call Randy at Best Converters They will give you the best one for the replacement.He has helped me and many others on this Forum. Ask Randy

RE: House Battery charging

I have a 2006 Tioga on a Chevy chassis also made by Fleetwood. unless it has been changed out you will have a WFCO converter,these old ones will boil your batteries.You need a newer 3 stage one to replace it. I replaced mine with one,Like this one I keep it plugged in all the time and check the batteries monthly and very seldom have to add water over the more than 12 years that I have owned it. Also look in your Battery Bay to see if you have a BIRD like this one,many of the Fleetwood RVs of this era had them,as mine does. When plugged in to will keep all of your batteries including your chassis battery,that is what it is designed to do. height=300 "border=0" For Full-Size Image. As for the Die Hards my experience with them was not good I would stay with the ones that you can check the water.

RE: Addressing truck/wind push in a Sprinter based Class C

When an 18-wheeler overtakes your RV, it's bow-wave of air hits the left rear of the RV first, and that pushes the rear toward the shoulder. When the body rear moves right slightly before the rear axle does, it amplifies the push to the left that you feel in the front causing you to correct steering As the 18-wheeler bow wave moves toward the front , it pushes the front of the RV to the right, it amplifies the steering correction you have already done causing you to have to correct to the left. This whole thing, if you are not used to the feelings, can be quite scary. One way to overcome that is to install Vortex Generators like Air Tabs They cut down on the dead air and drag on the rear of RV and greatly reduce the bow wave of passing trucks. I have AIRTABS on my Class C. They really help on a cross wind situation,no more sudden buffeting. It has also stopped the sideways push when being passed or passing a large truck. They are a vortex generator that produce a counter rotating air trail several feet behind the vehicle, This airflow alteration improves vehicle stability. As far a mileage it may helped some but the stability they provided is amazing.

RE: Valve stem extenders for inner wheels (DRW)

The last thing you want to do is put those flexible extenders on your valve stems. They have a tendency to leak and if they get loose from the anchoring point they can flop around and not only do damage to your wheel but suddenly deflate the tire causing a catastrophic loss. I can speak from experience,this happened with my old Class A. What is needed is a extended valve stem that will let you quickly check your tire pressure. They add no extra weight like the Extenders would and balancing is no problem, TPMS works on them as well Something like the Duallyvalve I have a set like them.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there? "border=0" We're DOWNSIZING.... After recently trading my SUV for a mid-size truck, we're interested in selling our 2011 Majestic 27G, 29ft-6", V10 E-450 with 148K miles, so we can downsize to a smallish 16-18ft "couples" towable travel trailer. MtnBikeMarty PS, big THANKS to IAMICHABOD for starting and running this forum topic. MtnBikeMarty. Sad to see you leaving the ranks of Former Rental Owners,you are #75 on the list that now has more than 140 members on this Forum.Your early participation and the many well documented mods with pictures has been greatly appreciated and I am sure that they have helped others.I have most of them archived for future use if others come along that can use them.

RE: Is there such a thing a decent valve extender?

As mentioned before,The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit Duallyvalves can work with External TPMS that go on the end of the valve stem. I have had the ones from the Tireman for over 12 years with TPMS and have not had a leak or any problems. DO NOT put the braided extenders on, they will leak and if they come loose from their mount on the wheel they will cause a catastrophic air loss.

RE: Dually Valve Stem Extenders

The ones you need are from Borg AKA Your Tire Supply. Dually Kit They will look like this and come from a company that is the only one now making longer valve stems for Class C Duallys like the Tire man, I have a set from Tire Man that was the original maker of them and have been on my Class C for over 10 years with no leaks or problems. You can Check the pressure on all tires in a matter of minutes. Valve stems DO NOT put the braided extenders on, they will leak and if they come loose from their mount on the wheel they will cause a catastrophic air loss.

RE: Small ‘C’. Chev or Godzilla

I have read a lot the posts about the Ford based Class C over the last few years. They seem to be the majority of the ones out there. It seems that the Fords have problems with the front suspension and are plagued with handling problems that are costly to fix and have to be worked on a lot.Also fuel pump problems. I have not seen any posts about these problems on a Chevy Based Class C. The noise and heat that is generated by the Fords seems to be a factor especially on the passenger side. I drove several of the same type that I bought, all on Ford chassis, and I really noticed the noise and heat and handling differences of the two. The power and pulling and GVWR seem to be very close from what I have read by authors that have had both, also the fuel mileage seems to be close,maybe a bit better and it has a larger fuel tank. One thing that the Chevy has over the Fords is the Leg room up front. If you’re tall like me at 6’6’’ 225 then you need that room. As an added bonus you can install a Swivel Seat that cannot be added on most Fords, Giving you even more room in the RV. As a disclaimer, I bought a 2006 Chevy based Tioga Class C 26Q, I test drove about a dozen or more of the same or similar types all on Ford Chassis and just one test drive in a Chevy based one and I was sold. So far no problems after 12 years on my Former Rental with more than 120000 miles on it, drives straight with no expensive add-ons to the suspension, rides really smooth for what it is, it is quiet and cool up front with plenty of leg room. Plenty of power when needed.

RE: yet another door look bites the dust

I wish you had specified what Trimark lock. If its the T507 common to so many class C RVs, like mine, Did your latch bolt break? Its cheap pot metal. There's a guy who sells repair kit, easy to do, with a beautifully crafted stainless steel latch bolt replacement. I can vouch for this. Yeah I remembered that repair kit,got it saved somewhere..Ahh here it is.

RE: What roof vent covers for Fantastic Fans

Maxx Air Fan Mate on Amazon $60.33 Better and cheaper.Even the black one is cheaper.

RE: What roof vent covers for Fantastic Fans

One thing about that video is that it is several years old and only compares the Fantastic vent cover to the MaxxAir regular cover,not the MaxxAir Fan Mate. Which is taller than the Fantastic, letting the vent lid open more fully to get more air in,covers more area as it is longer and has no screen,that is an option. The real big thing is that you don't have to dig into your sealant to install it as shown in the other pictures,it attaches to the fan housing wall. As shown in the install video. Anytime you mess with the roof and its sealant you always risk a leak. That is why they call it the Zero Leak mounting system.
