RE: Replace ac in Roadtrek Van

Cindy, make sure your generator has the capacity to run the AC unit you select. Sometimes, those power outputs can be a bit misleading. When an AC kicks on it uses surge power which is greater than the power it uses during normal operation. Otherwise, since I see that like me you live in a hot part of the country, the larger the unit the better. Enjoy your Roadtrek 170. I almost bought one back in the nineties and still think they are really neat and practical. Roadtrek put a lot of thought into the 170 back then and there aren't too many Bs on the smaller chassis which is a market that has always appealed to me because how much easier it is to park, maneuver and drive.

RE: Thinking About Winter Storage

First of all, I am fortunate to have indoor storage available for our Roadtrek. For winter, here is what I do beyond winterizing. 1. Keep the gas tank full. Probably not necessary these days, but old dogs don't relearn their tricks. 2. Use a simple battery cutoff switch on coach and chassis batteries. Here is what I use: You can buy them at Walmart or most places for under ten bucks. Make sure the batteries are fully charged before storage. In northern climes, some prefer to remove the batteries and store them inside a garage. 3. I drive my RT about sixty miles once a month for all the reasons others have mentioned. I fire up the generator and put it under a good load (the RT has a heat pump so I just set the thermostat sky high, crack the back windows and use that for a load. 4. I fill back up with gas before putting it back in storage. I feel that it is imperative to run the generator for at least an hour and some manuals suggest two hours every month as a minimum. 5. Other than that, I protect it like I would any vehicle.

RE: Top 15 Dislikes of my B-Class Thor Tellaro / Sequence

Every time I see, hear or read something like this I wonder how many of those record busting B sales during the COVID months will be "For Sale" when this pandemic is over or at least abated. Newbies (of course, I don't know that the OP is in fact a newbie) are going to discover any A, B or C is not like buying a vehicle from an auto dealer and that the inherent quirks and defects are many. No, they shouldn't exist in the first place but they do and I suspect with all the demand on the industry that new design and quality of workmanship problems will be quite common. Unfortunately.

RE: forum

jrobert01, As you can see from my signature Joined date I have been a member of this forum for almost 20 years. Sadly, I elected to leave this B forum for a few years ago. I drop in here to the B group and just see no activity. I still read Class C forum and it is a good one. There were some great folks that were very well informed that participated here for years but many if not most have drifted. I first came here in 2002 with a Roadtrek 190P, bought a new 2007 Roadtrek 210P and have still own it. I miss this forum and the wealth of information it once shared.
