RE: Who do you use for Roadside Assistance?

Good Sam ERS. Have used it for over a decade, and it's always been decent. Oddly enough, never for a motorhome, usually for a personal vehicle. I renewed earlier this year for 5 years, and only paid around US$150/year for the Platinum Plan which covers motorhomes and other assorted personal vehicles. It is pricey, if you only renew annually.

RE: Battery compartment connections

Insufficient input data for efficient analysis/diagnosis, or to suggest reliable resolutions/answers/advice. The most common answer is, a positive (+) battery terminal.

RE: RVing in the winter

In my limited experience with several motorhomes, upper 20F temps overnight hasn't been a show stopper, as long as things warm up during the day. So, you could probably not winterize under the situations you describe. If there was a more extended period of sub freezing temps for more than a day or two, without a daytime thaw, I would probably start winterizing, but it's a personal decision. Or, try to seek warmer climes.

RE: Winterization of RV

You will probably see sub freezing temps, at least overnight, in Bryce Canyon at 8000'. Water will be a problem. Best to tell the rental place where you're headed, and get their take on it. If you damage the RV by negligence, you're probably on the hook for the repair costs.

RE: I now hav e AC power in my driveway...

Hope that 30A outlet has a secured breaker somewhere upstream that can be disabled? When the cat's away, the neighborhood mice might be tempted to play. :B

That pic of Marino looks photo-shopped to me.

None of these places could re-do the upholstery? Upholsterers near Marianna, FL

RE: RV sitting for two to three weeks in 10 degree weather

Not necessary to fill the gray/black tanks with RVAF. You just want to cover the bottom and the exit drain to the dump valves. If you can empty all of your tanks, leaving the low point and main fresh water tank, and gray/black tank valves open. That leaves a path for water to freeze along if it decides to freeze. You can then use your water pump to blow out the lines. The ShurFlo pumps are made to run dry for a long time. Run yours for an hour or so, then shut it off. Close the gray/black dump valves. Then I would pour about a gallon in total, into all the galley/bathroom sinks, the shower drain, and let some sit on top of the toilet bowl flush valve. If you have a water filter somewhere, make sure you empty it, too. Is it really going to be that cold for days and days that close to Albuquerque? I'm not a climatologist.

RE: Class C Chassis

Shame about your prior unit. They're still going strong, many of them. I think Ford has been the goto for class C and larger gas chassis for some time, so they are probably getting good at it. I always liked my 2002 Chevy Roadtrek as a van chassis. It was pretty solid, and having owned both, plus a Sprinter, I liked the Ford the least of the three. Brace for the deluge of opinions, both ways.

RE: Lift

Tow a Wrangler, and use it to "off road". Most class C motorhomes aren't going to like rough roads very much, since they weren't designed for that kind of use. You could do some serious damage to it. Just my opinion.

RE: Battery Question

If I have room to add another house battery can I just use the existing charging system. Do I have to match the capacity of the two existing house batteries. If the 3rd battery is being placed close to the others, and you parallel them all together at 12V, should be able to just add the new one. The charging system will just see them as one battery. Unless you're referring to age/capacity. If the old ones are not in good shape, you might be better off replacing them first.

RE: 2013 Jayco Melbourne 29D battery disconnect

Some units switches will remain lit when plugged into shore power. True.

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

There are some top end manufacturers/retailers that offer models that can be charged down to -4F/-20C without damage, by borrowing some of the charging current, and self heating the batteries. Both Relion and LifeBlue make such a battery. There may be others. I have 2 X 100 Ah Relion RB100-LT batteries (charged by 3 X 100W ZAMP panels off grid) and so far so good. We don't worry about running out of power any more.

RE: House batteries

Some more good reading (marine and RV batteries are similar in terms of the electrical info), and a chart of State of Charge by voltage if you have a digital multi-meter, and specific gravity, if you have wet cell batteries and a hydrometer. As you can see, you've hit on a very popular topic, with many and varied opinions. Hope some of it helps.

RE: Dirty water in toilet bowl after sitting

You left the ceiling vent open and it’s been raining?:) Good one. :B

RE: Dirty water in toilet bowl after sitting

RV A/F (the pink stuff) with propylene glycol makes a good winterizing bowl seal when not in use. It won't evaporate like water, and usually provides some degree of lubrication.

RE: Dirty water in toilet bowl after sitting

Probably drainage from your (dirty smelly) fresh tank and water lines.
