RE: New RV Company

I think Fiat had many glitches with production and i believe the 500 model was discontinued in the U.S.? I don’t see Fiat sending an rv here with expensive parts and taxes on top.

RE: Smoke coming out under hood Class C Majestic, What is it?

Maybe this is it ? It shows that 13342 part number. If you zoom in on the component you can read "Jerome Industries, Elizabeth NJ' https://www.ebay.com/itm/Triplett-Corporation-Part-No-13342-5-Pin-Power-Supple-Cable-Cord-RKD102F-011-12V-/174125781983 IM no expert on this, so someone correct me if im wrong. I might be way the mark on this ? OP, when you started this rv, did you have to use the emergency start button bc the chassis was dead ? The emergency start feature allows the house battery to start the rv. If I remember correctly, a few years ago someone told me to hold that button for the BIM system to equalize its load before you start the rv. Sometimes those BIM's can load up and become very hot if you try to start the rv too soon. BIM = Battery Isolator Manager, its a small electronic component that controls charging as well as the emergency start feature.

RE: 24 ft or less B+ with over head bed.

If I had it to do over, I would like to try the GM cutaway . I towed a 6500# TT with a 2016 Silverado with the 5.3 and HD tow package and it had plenty of power on the hills with a combined weight of 13k or so. The new 6.0 should be fine in a class C. Both my old B conversions were GM's and they were a pleasure to drive over 200k miles and they did offer more foot room for the passenger. My wife never complains about the lack of space in the Ford but I have heard others mention it was tight. My friend owns a diesel shop and strips and rebuilds medium duty trucks to sell them. Talking to his customers who also drive pickups all say that the Ford and GM's are equally balanced as far as dependability . I think the GM parts might end up being a little less expensive over time.

RE: 24 ft or less B+ with over head bed.

By the time you finish researching these rvs , you will have to start over with class D and class E models. :B If you need extra sleeping in a smaller rv ........ See the Dynamax 24RB models. Other mfgs might offer the same floorplan. Its not a cabover bed for one but a QB for 2. Plus a sofa and dinette which both can made into a sleeper. The 24RB while it did have a nice drop down bunk, that was really the only bed unless the sofa pulled out. Where the bed would normally be was all bath space. So nice bunk, but no bedroom. Hi, yes I thought it might offer G an alternative for that extra sleeping space. I think that QB can be left made then retracted and it appeared someone could also sleep on the sofa while that drop down QB was in use. Maybe, maybe not ? I just saw the floorplan and offered it as a possible solution. At the end of the day , once any of us find that floorplan that we think is best, they find that the water pump is hidden below the shower pan with no access. Remember that post a few months ago ?

RE: 24 ft or less B+ with over head bed.

IMO, I think the E450 is an E450 no matter class c or B+. You have to have the correct alignment which might be a little difficult to find the right shop to do that. Maybe the Transit drives better but not sure about the payload. Same thing with the Pro-Master which is FWD . Loading up the rear on that model might causes the wheels to spin on loose gravel or very wet surfaces, at least that's what dealer told me. Spinning on gravel was the Pro Master owners biggest complaint when the rear was loaded up. The P. Cruiser seems more aero dynamic and has less cabover which I would think would drive better from an engineering point of view but Ron did all the same mods as I did to allow his rig to handle and ride better. Mine is a class c square box which drives very well now after the mods. I wish they would build these things to drive correctly from the get-go. mods: -shocks, Bils front - FSD rear -Roadmaster steering stabilizer -alignment with caster kit - rear track bar - heavy duty sway bars front and rear - experiment with PSI in all tires I tried a set of wireless Air bags with compressor $1700 but had them removed bc they did not raise my MH more than level. I was looking to gain some driveway clearance of and inch to 2 inches but the bags only offered 1/2", if that, above normal and the compressor constantly malfunctioned causing massive air loss. Swapped the bags out, swapped the compressor and leak tested all the lines and connections and never found the leak source, so I had them removed. Go figure that one out. All the air leaked out in 3 hours but no bubbles anywhere. Maybe Rod Serling built my rv. The dealer was very helpful in trying to resolve the issue but even the AirLift folks didn't understand it.

RE: Newbie with questions

I payed for coach-net road service for a 10 years and used them 3x for a trailer flat . CN is financially ahead as are most all other road service contractors otherwise they would not be in business. If needed, I now would google a ‘24 hr road service’ and make the call myself. If i have cell service to call a my road service company i can call any 24 hr service myself.

RE: Worn suspension

If you cant see where its sagging then how much could it really be sagging ? I would get a second then third opinion from mechanics who can actually look it at and who know what they are looking at.

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

Lots of good suggestions on things to check and ways to reduce water usage. But, in the end, the fact is that 29 gallons is not a lot of water. While boondocking we carry a one gal water jug with a hole drilled near the bottom. We use a golf tee as the plug and that one gallon of water is used for brushing teeth, washing hands etc. It lasts us a long time , its easy to refill and offsets the holding tank supply.

RE: Safe T Steering Stabilizer

Had the steering stabilizer put on when doing front alignment. Made of huge differene in handling. Do you think the correct alignment would have done the trick without the stabilizer ?

RE: Dry as a bone,…again

Agree , try to measure your water supply first. Why cant you refill the rv at a campground water spigot ? I know its a bit if a pain to move off the site to go refill but it beats going home early. If close enough to a spigot I sometimes use a 5 gal jug and foldable 2 wheel luggage cart and refill 5 gals at a time.

RE: Safe T Steering Stabilizer

I had the same problem. I needed the Ford bushings added to gain more caster. I also added a rear track bar which bolts to the frame and rear axle. It eliminates any side movement which translates to the steer axle. This was a great improvement. Or it can not translate but transfer :S :)

RE: Safe T Steering Stabilizer

Hi Guys, I am considering a Safe T steering stabilizer for my 2020 Ford 450 chassis Leprechaun Class C. I would appreciate advice from anyone who has tried this addition. It is expensive so I am being cautious. Thanks in Advance! Bill What symptoms are you trying to fix ? Make sure you try the correct remedy.

RE: 2021 E450 dual alternator

Is it a good idea to do this while the brand new rv is still under warranty ?

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? You had the answer 5 mins after you asked your question. :) Glad to hear its resolved.

RE: Help! Onan 4K generator refuses to start and stay on

To maybe help prevent the above, perhaps we should add the red-colored gasoline maintanier fluid in our motorhome's main gasoline tank for Onan generator protection. I always thought thats what most people do. Anytime i add treatment to any gasoline , I start it up to run it thru the lines of whatever that fuel tank runs.

RE: Need help locating a part.
