Power "vampire" on coach batteries

I parked the RV after 10 months on the road and full service at the dealer which included checking all batteries. I parked it for 10 days with no shore power and the coach batteries (4 6 volt) were down to 11.7 v. I had the inverter off, and both battery banks shut off. This has happened before, but I had forgotten about it. I have power to run charger thru the winter, but would like the option of disconnecting if we have power outage etc. I understand some coaches have things wired directly to battery bank, but would like to know best way to figure out what is drawing power when everything is shutoff. Thanks.

RE: How many states has your dog been too?

We just finished a 10 month trip. Coco has been to 23 states, both the Atlantic, Pacific, Gulf of Mexico and 3 of the Great Lakes. She just turned 2 and is happy to be "stationary" for a while.

RE: Captain chair/sofa upholstery

We have a 2018 Allegro Red 33aa and both the captain's chairs are clearly showing wear after 3 years (22,000 miles). I went out of my way to meet Bob Tiffin at the Hershey show last month and very nicely asked him how to get it repaired. He wrote down his number on my show program, and told me to call him. They have a woman in Red Bay that recovers the upholstery. I asked him if this was something that was normal and he said absolutely not. I know Steelcase had issues with the leather some years, but he said 2018 was not a year he is aware of with the issue. Now I just have to get the rig to Red Bay from Philadelphia! Very nice conversation though. I complemented him on his coach and organization.

RE: RV campgrounds near Yosemite NP

We stayed at the Yosemite Lakes CG, the Thousand Trails site. We are members, so didn't pay for it directly. A lot of TT CGs are not well kept, but Yosemite Lakes was by far the nicest TT we have been to this year. Beautiful sites. Somehow I chose the worst way to drive up to Yosemite and suggest getting some advice on the best route to use. I can't remember what route I used, but it was the worst drive of the year with narrow roads and "twisties" going straight up (and down). Found out apon arrival there are easier ways to get there.

RE: Just beginning to do homework

Thanks to all for your input. So the tour is probably out and will use the resources listed for further guidance. I should have been clearer about the timeframe to get out to AK. I was thinking 2-3 weeks each way to get out there and return. No way will I ever budget 300 to go anywhere. I do 350 max, but try to keep our daily mileage to 250 or less, depending on road conditions.

Just beginning to do homework

Considering going to Alaska Summer of '22 and looking at tour/rally packages and if better to do trip on our own, or not at all. We are from East Coast so budgeting 2-3 weeks to drive out and back and about 8 weeks going through AK. Any experiences and input are welcome. It is quite a commitment in terms of $$ and time. Wife and I are just returning from almost a year on the road in our 35' Tiffin DP. We think we are ready for new adventure. but we've been wrong before.

Any one going to Hershey RV show?

We are just thinking about it and usually will just drive over for the day from our home in Philadelphia in the car. Was hoping to get some info on seminars that may be worthwhile, but they are not yet listed on website. Also, camping reservations are not accepted, so I am sure there is limited room to accommodate all of the coaches, but don't think it makes sense to drive out there, only to be turned away. Any experiences at the show?

RE: Electric bikes !!

While all of this ebike knowledge is watching this thread, I wanted to ask a related question. My wife and I have been on the road for the past 10 months or so and carry 2 regular bikes on a standard thule rack on the back of our toad. We want to get ebike for her but want to know how to handle rack for transportation. She has heavy Schwinn (around 40 lbs) that I hate to load on to rack, but wonder best rack for heavier ebike. We would get rid of her Schwinn so only need room for her ebike, maybe a trek Townie? and my Trek road bike. Appreciate the input.

RE: Satalite tv

Just started full timing and found that even with OTA antenna, streaming (Youtube TV), and cable when available, about half the time we still had no TV. Finally broke down and bought Wally Dish receiver to hook into our Winegard satellite that's built into our Tiffin, but we never used. Works great. I think we pay $60 mo. for local and regular programming, month to month. I was thinking of buying a portable dish to hook up because some CGs with trees, block signal. Can't move satellite receiver when sitting on roof of coach. Wally box was $150. Packages including portable dish and receiver list for about $300, but are usually on sale for under $200 at CW etc.

RE: Opinions on flat towing a jeep grand cherokee

We tow a a 2018 GC behind our Tiffin RED. It has the Cummins 360 HP unit. Coach is rated for 10,000 lb towing. Since I have never towed previously, I really have nothing to compare it to, but works very well. We have towed it around 10,000 miles this year without issue. Mileage is the same on coach towing or not it seems. We looked at the Wrangler, but just too expensive for what you got. I figured we saved at least $10,000 on the GC limited with all the bells and whistles. Really like the car.

RE: Long Range Two Way Radio

I bought the Midland GXT series 1000 for basic use. Relatively cheap, I think around $70 for pair. Good features, came with earphone/mic etc. I have tested a few times for range as I ride my bike away from coach and try to check in with wife as I get farther away. Despite 30 mile hope, it is line of sight and even in small, flat town with just houses between us, I have only gotten about 1.5 miles. Still works for us for most communications. We use it constantly when parking etc.

We have reservations just outside Glacier in a couple of weeks for 5 days or so. We have not been able to get timed entry tix, (not available from the first day they opened web site), organized tours are not accepting reservations and the Sun Road isn't open due to snow removal until first of July they think. Is is worth going at all? Not sure we can even get into park. Any advice is appreciated.

RE: Montana

We tried April 28 or thereabouts for week of June 14th. NOTHING showed available and hasn't since. The CG we have reservations at (Columbia Falls RV Park) has not helped with information either.

RE: Propane hook up for peripherals

Thanks for the good info.

Propane hook up for peripherals

I have what I am guessing is standard 24 gal/100# propane tank on board class A MH and would like to add auxiliary output for BBQ and/or fire pit. Not being acquainted with plumbing of LPG system, I wanted to ask if this is something I can do or should I have done by professional? I was looking at the many connections available at CW the other day, and was confused and didn't know what to look for. Thanks.

RE: Grants Pass, OR (exceptional experiences)

Thank you for sharing the good part of the adventure. Hopefully, these will be the most challenging parts of your new life. Good to hear of the good experiences that help counterbalance some of the complaints.

RE: Rear View Camera

I would guess you can change the setting in the dash monitor. We have a 2018 Tiffin and there are MANY settings in the monitor. Just play with it. Ours left/right and rear are always on while driving, but each go to full screen when in reverse or turn signal engaged. I have adjusted how they are displayed. Your salesperson was not correct.
