RE: house batteries & heat with 120v

Since you have 120V shore power, have you thought about using an electric space heater instead of the furnace? It will save you propane.

RE: What's a reasonable towed vehicle?

Transmission in P, and transfer case in N, and off you go Is this a typo ? Transmission in P ? No, not a typo. Transfer case in in neutral, so the transmission won't hold the vehicle stationary. If you put the transmission in neutral, it can rotate from transfer case drag, causing damage. With a manual transmission, you put it in 5th gear. That's so it doesn't end up spinning the engine at 10,000RPM if the transfer case happens to drop in gear going down the freeway (like it would in first gear).

RE: Towing 6,500 pounds with a class C

Tom, Have you ever weighed the RV, with and without the trailer? I'd be real curious how your weights compare to the ratings. I haven't had it very long, so I haven't had a chance to weigh it yet. If I had to guess, I would say the RV itself is under GVWR, but I know the trailer is right at the 7500lb. maximum.

RE: Towing 6,500 pounds with a class C

We have a 2021 Forest Ranch Sunseeker on an E450 chassis with the 7.3 and 6-speed. It's rated to tow 7500lbs. I tow a lot more than you're planning on towing and it stops, goes, and handles amazingly. I'm seriously impressed with it. And I do quite a bit of mountain driving, too.

RE: Seats in a 2021 Forester Classic w/ Ford 450 chassis

If the only problem is the steering wheel to seat relationship, you can just tilt the wheel down. But if you need the seat to be higher, I would go with the previous suggestion and put in some spacers, either under the base, or between the base and the seat. Even an inch can make a huge difference in the way it feels.

RE: Extended Warranty: Why do I need it?

Most extended warranties that I know of can be purchased at any time before the factory warranty expires. You aren't required to get them at the time of vehicle purchase. Dealers push them on buyers because they are very profitable for the dealer and the warranty company. Not so much for the buyer. I've never bought one in my life, and have never wished I had.
