RE: X Member of Good Sam Roadside Assistance

Somebody must be an agent in search of clients. If you believe the post, I know of some good salt water dockage in Kansas you might be interested in. :B

RE: F550 based class C?

Earth Roamer sometimes used F550 chassis but they're pricey.

RE: Need help locating a part.

If it's on a Chevy chassis, wouldn't it make sense to try a Chevy dealer? Preferably one that services the 4500 cab chassis, if that's what it's on?

RE: Marathon driving

Depending on the purpose of the journey, been there, done that. Happy trails.

RE: Where to begin

To start, try giving people more info as to the year/make/model/style of the class C motorhome/coach part, not just the chassis info. There were probably more than a few class C motorhomes built on a 1983 Chevy chassis.

RE: DFW Class C Sevice

Further to BND's comments, service quality is a subjective thing. One person's good might be someone else's marginal. You might get great care one day, and poor on another, from the same place. It's the nature of the automotive service business beast, in general.

RE: DFW Class C Sevice

It's not just Class C motorhomes on the Mercedes-Benz chassis that are hard to find service for...this thread has some ways to locate service for Ford chassis, but nothing is ever definite/certain. You still have to call and ask, to confirm.

RE: DFW Class C Sevice

Best place is Ford Truck Dealer. True, or a truck stop/truck shop like Loves/Pilot/Flying J/TA and so on with their larger service bays, and sometimes drive-thru service. I also got an oil change/service on my small Sunstar 26HE Ford F53 chassis, at an Irving truck stop in Maine 3 years ago. Drive thru service. Most corner Ford dealerships can't handle the class C or larger motorhomes, simply because they won't fit in their service bays.

RE: Why keep soliciting...

Do you also get the renew now deals mailers, 4 months before your renewal date? I used to get them, so I signed up for 5 years to reduce the amount of paper/postal mail I used to get. Worked like a charm. Wait a minute.......:S :W:R

RE: How long to bring slide in and drive off?

I did consider no slides but was planning on splitting the camper between work and some road trips with the family and we need the little extra space the slide gives. With something like a View/Navion, if you avoid the full wall slide models and stick to the J/V/G or equivalents on the other platforms, you can park overnight with the slide in, and have full access to the sleeping area/galley/head/cab over bunk/cockpit. Morning comes or the phone rings, put keys in the ignition, start engine, drive away. Then when traveling with the family, use the smaller forward dinette or couch slide, to give you the extra living space up front. Might be worth a look, if you can live with the smaller slide.

RE: Battery & electrical questions

Coolmom, Mike had good answers, except for one. That one is easily checked. I have seen very few (like 2) coaches without modification, that charged the chassis battery from shore power. This can be added if you find you need it. Matt You're right. My bad, on charging chassis battery. As I said, "if I understand your questions". Missed one. :B

RE: Battery & electrical questions

I have a 2014 Coachmen 21QB on a Chevy 4500 chassis, with an Onan 4KW generator. *Does the generator have its own starting battery? If so, how is this battery charged? Or does the generator crank off the chassis battery? (I'm assuming it doesn't crank off the house battery, as that would kind of defeat the point of having a generator.) Most generators do use the coach batteries for their starting power, at least in my limited experience. Disable your coach batteries, and try to start the generator, as a test. *Does the generator charge the chassis battery? No, usually. *Does the chassis alternator charge the house battery? If so, how well?Yes, usually. Depends on the alternator amperage, ambient temperature, and size of the bettery bank to be charged. In general, I've always found it decent, if you drive enough between coach battery usage. *Does the battery isolator switch completely isolate the house battery and chassis battery from each other?It's usually a diode (one way only) switch that allows simmultanoeus charging of all batteries, but that won't allow the coach battery system to borrow power from the chassis battery, so you (in theory) won't kill your starting battery by drawing power fromm it to run the coach 12V DC loads. *Does the converter charge the chassis battery when the RV is plugged into shore power?Usually, yes. EDIT: As per Matt, usually no. My bad. *On the side of the engine compartment, there is a 200 amp fuse. What is this for?No idea. Sorry. This is anecdotal info based on motorhomes I've owned, and my experience and understanding of their power systems, and your questions.

RE: 2004 Dynamax Sport Sedan 220 mileage

What you see, is what you get. The older Ford gas engines/transmission combos are not known for their exceptional fuel economy. Power, yes, but at a price. What size is it? V8 or V10?

RE: Overhang construction

I'd say yes, but it's a luck of the draw thing. Too many factors involved to define one or two cab over designs that will be more or less prone to leaks. I didn't want a cab over bunk, and was able to delete it when ordering, and so far, no problems without one. I'm sure that probably doesn't help much. Sorry.

RE: 2009 Weekend Warrior Road Warrior RWS3400 - Furnace(s) How many of these are on the outside of the coach. Good one. I was thinking thermostats, but exhaust/intake vents would work, too. That would indicate where they are also trace fuel lines underneath. i haven't seen a coach with separate furnaces.Good idea though. Doing an internet search there seems to be a lack of owners manuals for these units, I frankly did not know they even existed. Copy that, on all counts.

RE: 2009 Weekend Warrior Road Warrior RWS3400 - Furnace(s)

You probably have 2 furnaces then. I'm not an expert. Someone may see this thread and give you some more specific help. There are also some other forums you could try, like iRV2. There are folks over there driving all sorts of Super C coaches. Sorry I can't be more help.

RE: 2009 Weekend Warrior Road Warrior RWS3400 - Furnace(s)

Just a guess, but wouldn't there be 2 thermostats, if there were 2 furnaces?

RE: Will this be covered, put on spare tire.

I'm still not sure what the answer is. If it's in storage, with a flat, and you have an inflated spare, will GSERS change the tire, free of charge?Vanesa said yes just above. Vanesa did not say the OP could choose the service company and have all tires replace while they were out there anyway and be fully reimbursed by GSERS. No, she didn't say "yes". She simply quoted the FLAT TIRE SERVICE section of the Platinum Roadside Assistance Brochure, which is what I'm doing again. "FLAT TIRE SERVICE A service technician will replace a flat tire with your inflated spare or we’ll tow your vehicle to the nearest professional service center. On occasion and whenever possible, we will make arrangements for the Member to purchase a tire(s) for delivery to the disablement scene. In these cases Good Sam Roadside Assistance will pay for delivery of tire only, Member is responsible for all additional costs including cost of tire(s), mounting, balancing, other parts or labor, tax and any other fees. Note: Does not include seasonal tire changes. Member responsible for parts and labor." So if you have an inflated spare, you're good to go. If not, they cover their costs of delivering the tire, but that's it. You pay for everything else. It's the added text that didn't apply in this case, that made me question the entire answer. Clear as mud.
