RE: 2Toad rver.

My daughter has a SRX Dealer just recently told her she needs new electric shocks. $5,000. I told her keep going on the old ones!! You can buy all 4 struts / shocks for around $1200 on Rockauto. AC Delco brand. $3800 in labor. Really ? And you know the dealer doesn’t pay that much for those parts.

RE: Refrigerator cooling question

I use a small 3” computer fan inside the fridge and a larger 6” computer fan outside blowing up past the fridge components. Both switched by one switch inside. The amount of power used by both fans is minimal and does a great job of circulating cold air in the fridge and pushing hot air up and out the top vent. Both fans and switch cost less than $25.

RE: Looking for Solar Panel system to just MAINTAIN battery

This is what I use and so far has never let me down. My batteries have a disconnect switch so no parasitic loss when off. And mine is a Class A so the panel only maintains the chassis battery and my longest storage time is about three months. Other than that, we use the MH at least once a month.

RE: Best way to sell? For a fee, they will give you an accurate appraisal of your rv. If it’s priced right, it will sell.

RE: DIY battery cable supplier

I use Del City, which was already posted. They also have the lugs with solder plugs that work very well. After I soldered the lugs I center punched them to get a little extra bite into the wire. Then covered with adhesive lined shrink tube. Better than anything you can buy. IMHO

RE: Roof coatings.

I used liquid EPDM the first time and it lasted about 5 years. This last year I applied Tropicool. Made by Henry’s I think. Available at Home Depot. I did repair a tree tear prior to the coating. No leaks. My roof is 19 years old now so the next coating will be a new roof.

RE: LOUD Transmission drone at 58-62MPH

I have a very similar sound in my 2001 P32 Fleetwood Flair that almost duplicates your issue. I have had the noise since the coach was new. Now have 50,000 miles and nothing has changed. Serviced yearly regardless of mileage. Oil, grease, etc. Tranny also serviced. I have checked everything that has been mentioned so far with the exception of removing the driveline to check u joints and have found zero issues. Even replaced the fluid in the rear end. Fluid was clean with no signs of abnormal wear or particles, etc. I have come to the conclusion that it is simple harmonics caused by extended driveline and possibly poor design. But can’t confirm that. I do know that with the RV unloaded, the sound is not present. That’s my reason for design considerations. I will be following this thread so keep us informed as to what you come up with.

RE: Class A LP Tank

If you prefer low pressure, make sure that none of your appliances (i.e. Firepit, BBQ, Etc.) do not have a regulator attached. Propane does not like to be double regulated.

RE: Question about Onan Generator

My battery for my generator is the same battery that provides power to my coach and receives a charge from the converter/ charger when the generator is running or when plugged into 120v.

Here’s another website to help understand what your issue may be. Also, check out Inexpensive well built auxiliary lighting.

RE: Out of State Purchase - Private Party

And be prepared to deal with your state for bringing in an out-of-state vehicle. Might try to tax you. We are talking about California. Of course they WILL collect a sales tax and a vehicle registration fee. Check out This link should take you to the DMV page outlining an out of state purchase. Good luck with your purchase.

RE: firewall, black expanding foam

If your engine compartment is anything like mine, that little bit of “Fire Rated Foam” isn’t going to make any difference if you have a fire in your engine compartment or anywhere around your front cap. Unless it’s a very small fire. I guess it might not promote fire spread. I don’t know. The rest of the wood, fiberglass and plastic will do just fine spreading the fire. Sealing the gaps to keep your feet warm is more important. IMHO

RE: Super duper plug in code scanner w. WiFi?

I have one of those “cheap” plug in modules and use the Dash Command app on my iPad. I can check and reset codes as you would expect but also look at and monitor critical engine functions. I guess it all depends on what you are trying to accomplish. For a <$20 investment, I am happy with what I have. You can buy “Pro” level apps, but your gunna pay for it.

RE: Solar panel purpose on used motorhome

I have the same size solar panel you are describing. Mine came from the factory with it. It’s sole purpose is to keep the chassis battery topped off. If I remember right, the output is around 5 amps. So not really enough to charge anything but enough to overcome parasitic loss while the RV sits.
