RE: Trickle charger suggestion

Thanks to all for the info and suggestions. The new facility I'm going to use is a 7 day/16 hour per day unlimited access, climate controlled, security coded warehouse. After weighing all or your responses, I've decided to plug the rig into their 110V outlet, same as I do at home between trips, then check the monitor after a couple of weeks to get readings. At the same time I will check water levels in the batteries.

Trickle charger suggestion

Getting ready for the upcoming storage season in a couple of months, I need info on trickle chargers. I'm storing my rig in a new facility this upcoming season, it's climate controlled that has 110v electric outlets. My rig has (2) 12v chassis batteries, and (8) 6v house batteries. I've never used trickle chargers before, what do I need to do to keep the batteries charged and healthy?

RE: front seats

We have a 2015 DutchStar, the 2 captain seats were nasty when I bought it used in March 2020 with just over 16,000 miles on it. The rest of the furniture(2 recliners, couch, and dinette booth were decent but had wear on the seam piping. The maker of my seats was Villa, I was told the original owners of rigs from late 2014 to early 2016 were given an opportunity to get replacements, me being a second owner was SOL. I asked Newmar what the cost would be get new replacement seats, they said $3,500.00/ea., or they could supply new exact-fit covers that I could install myself for $2,800.00/ea., obviously Newmar really likes their seats. Long story short, I found an upholstery shop within 25 miles of home that recovered both captain seats and the both recliners for a VERY good price using a marine grade material that darn near matches the original seats.

RE: Hankook tires for DP

AH37 Hankook tires 275 70 22.5 are really good tires. They drive well and are very quiet. Safety-wise they are an 18 ply tire that I had mounted at the time on my '07 Newmar Ventana 3936.

RE: Death Wobble Continues ....

Bungee cord wrapped around the bottom of the steering wheel and hooked under the edge of the driver's seat on both sides of the BrakeBuddy handle. I've used the green/black fabric bungee that you buy in a plastic jar at Walmart, they have the plastic hooks that are non-marring. Basically 5 wraps around the wheel is about right to give the steering enough resistance to eliminate the wobble.

RE: suggestions for camping around Vicksburg

The Ameristar Casino has an RV park that is very nice and priced right. We stopped there last fall for an overnite stay, very quiet and roomy sites. Very easy on&off the interstate Definitely would stay again.

RE: Watkins Glen ny

The KOA is just up the road from the race track, it's a very nice park that was updated and expanded about ten years ago. A little pricey as most KOA's are.

RE: 2013 Ford CMax death wobble

As lryrob9301 mentioned, the bungee cord works well to eliminate the wobble. I've used the flat cloth(green & black) covered bungee with the plastic hooks that Walmart carries. My 2013 Equinox has a 4 cylinder that has electric steering, the 6 cylinder Equinox has hydraulic steering that does not have the death wobble issues. I started using the bungee after two years of towing the Equinox without any wobble, I think whatever wear occurs in the steering system over those years resulted in less resistance to movement. I make 5 wraps around the bottom of the steering wheel and hook the two ends under the front edge of the seat on each side of the Brake Buddy. It may have been 4 wraps around the steering wheel when the bungee was new, but it should not be stretched too tight, just a little snug. I have not seen any issues with the tires wearing abnormally.

RE: Dura Shield

This is somewhat normal for aging coaches, even coaches 5 years old or so. There is a company in the Fort Meyers, FL that will remove it for you or give you the materials that will allow you to remove it yourself. They also can come to your site at one of a few campgrounds in the area to remove it for you. Go online to
