RE: Trickle Charging Chassis battery

Apologies, I meant isolator, not solonoid. To answer questions, yes, it is a chassis battery shut off, 12 volt, and difficult to pass wire through from separate compartments on either side of coach. Love the idea of listening for click when activated. Great idea.

RE: Trickle Charging Chassis battery

Thanks all for the input. My chassis and house batteries are on different sides of the coach. I read the info and installation manual for the Trik-L-Start and if I can find the battery solenoid, installing the Trik-L unit seems to be the best idea.

Trickle Charging Chassis battery

I am new to everything in our new (used Tiffin 33aa) coach, but am learning fast. I just learned the battery charger is only connected to house batteries, not chassis batteries. I have power connected while sitting outside for the winter, but that won't help chassis power. I expect to be starting/driving on occasion during the winter months, just to become more comfortable driving it, and want to just connect charger to the chassis batteries. If you look at pic, in the upper right corner, there are 2 terminals, labeled chassis battery (+) and chassis battery (-). Can I just connect charger to those 2 terminals for trickle charging? Maybe I am overthinking this, but don't want to make expensive mistake. https://i.imgur.com/bxMa8d4l.jpg

Winterizing Washer

I see there are many winterizing questions and hope this specific question has an easy answer. Just picked up Tiffin 33 in time to winterize! I have successfully blown out lines and have anti freeze for drains/tanks, but even after reading Splendide manual for washer,I can't get to intakes for unit. I REALLY am trying not to use Anti Freeze for any water intakes, but don't see a way to avoid it unless I can figure out way around this. If I have air pressure in system and run washer, will the air blow it out? Then use Anti freeze to drain? Appreciate the insights of the group.

RE: First Diesel Pusher Drive

Actually the idea of a Class A or B license in PA was news to me, but as it turns out, there is a very clear exception for RVs where it is used exclusively for personal use. I may take the test just to make myself a better driver though.

First Diesel Pusher Drive

OK, I consider myself a good and experienced driver. Being a salesman and driving 35-40K miles a year (only in a car), but having driven Class b and some good sized trucks, (box trucks and 10 wheel dumps over the years), I knew driving a DP would be "weird" but doable. I drove a Tiffin 33aa and WOW it was very difficult. I understand the physics of front/rear wheel tracking etc. but it was much tougher than I thought it would be. Stopping a 34,000 lb vehicle even with air brakes was not easy even allowing a lot or room. I see myself spending many hours in parking lots, but can you folks tell me best way to get acclimated? Appreciate it. And yes, I bought the coach. 2018 Tiffen 33aa.

RE: Pulling the trigger...

We certainly hope to see all the states including the Gulf area. Unsure of our pace, but we expect to go for at least 1-2 years and see how it goes. The idea is no agenda...until we have one.

RE: Pulling the trigger...

Many thanks for the replies. We do understand the financial downside of buying new and the associated depreciation, but have weighed it against the need for local high quality service. We hope we are not disappointed. Also many things will break, for AC units, to refrigerators etc., but think it will lessen the "learning curve" to a manageable level. We will have the coach from about April until the end of the year before heading out full time. Again, thanks for the input.

Pulling the trigger...

So after stalking this forum for a while, my wife and I have decided to pull the trigger to start our full time adventure by ordering a new Tiffin 33aa for Spring delivery. We are old time sailors and sold our boat to accommodate our new retirement lifestyle of RVing full time for a while. House is getting cleaned up for sale and here we go. We are too busy until the Spring to really learn everything that has to be done/learned. Hope our sailing experience with all the related systems will help. Starting in the Spring will let us acclimate to the coach and shake out the unit. Anyway, with the big RV show in Hershey coming up, is there anything that we should be looking at due to great deals or selection? Our salesperson said he can get us the same price we see at the show on the coach when we order it. He suggested ordering it in October and with the factory backlog form the show, it will be delivered around March which is perfect for us. Let me know if the big RV show has opportunity to save some $$ on related supplies and stuff. Also looking at hooking up Grand Cherokee as toad, so will need hook up. Appreciate the input
