RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Got the right hand side of the 28a just about done. Once we get the final positioning of the table (folded down in this picture) sorted out then we finish the electrics and the dinette goes and is replaced by work area and cupboards. Oh - and the wine rack :-) Hi Eldel - if you could provide some details and links for where did you get those chairs; I would really appreciate it. This would be the mod I would love to do (i.e., get rid of that couch and replace with two swiveling chairs). Thanks in advance.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

One more question on my 28A - I am trying to load up a scooter (350LB) on the hitch - while RV data indicates much higher towing capacity, the hitch showed two different numbers (see pictures below). First the data from Ford - Max GWVR for E450 is 22,000 LB As per labels on 28A - GWVR for unloaded 28A is 14,500 LB Max Cargo Capacity - 3,127LB Lets say liquids are 342LB (as per label) and passengers and other being 1000LB - that leaves almost 1800LB tongue weight remaining (not to mention additional (3000LB+ remaining to get to E450 stated GWVR of 22,000LB). And then the following: First I noticed the stock hitch provided by Cruise America was rated only 200LB tongue weight (see picture below) (Sorry - can't attach picture - will add picture later). However, this picture seems like a sticker stuck by Cruise America on top of official sticker underneath. So I peeled it off and found a 500LB/5000LB hitch manufacturer sticker (see picture below) (Sorry - can't attach picture - will add later). Has anyone else noticed this? Which number should I go by? What is the weight others have towed with stock Cruise America hitch?

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Thanks IAMICHABOD. @booner - thanks for the followup - I have not yet bought/installed them; one of the upcoming project. Between shocks/dampener and Hellwig front/rear stabilizers - this looks to be a big ticket project in parts alone! @gotsmart - thanks for suggestion. $399 price for Safe-T-Plus (vs. $115 for Bilstein dampener) feels scary but from reviews seems worth it.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

All new Bilstein HD shocks, Front steering stabilizer, Front and rear Anti sway bars, Front and rear Sumo springs airless air bags, Hi Majestic31 (or Booner or anyone else) - could you link the Bilstein Shock and steering stabilizer you purchased? I could not find E450 Shock/stabilizers (for CA 28A Majestic) on Amazon. Thanks in advance. Edit: Answering my own question for others in future: Steering Stabilizer on Amazon $115 Rear Shocks part number 33-176840 as per Bilstein (08-16 E450 motorhomes) Front shocks - Part number 33-187563 as per Bilsteing (08-16 E450 Motorhomes) I have linked to Amazon but can be bought cheaper elsewhere.

RE: Lifting my class C

I recently put HD Bilstein shock all the way around my motor home along with a steering stabilizer. I purchased them from Amazon; the shocks were around $90 each and the stabilizer $115. It greatly improved the handling. I put the stabilizer on myself; it was simple to do and the factory stabilizer was well past worn out. If your going to tow something, you'll want a good handling rig. Also, I'm wondering if you lifted the rear end of your MH, if that would change the caster on your front wheels either for better or worse as far as handling goes? If you still are running on the factory shocks and stabilizer, it's probably time for a change anyway. Hi Booner (or anyone else) - could you link the Bilstein Shock and steering stabilizer you purchased? I could not find E450 Shock/stabilizers (for CA 28A Majestic) on Amazon. Edit: Answering my own question for others in future: Steering Stabilizer on Amazon $115 Rear Shocks part number 33-176840 as per Bilstein (08-16 E450 motorhomes) Front shocks - Part number 33-187563 as per Bilsteing (08-16 E450 Motorhomes) I have linked to Amazon but can be bought cheaper elsewhere.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Thanks both IAMICHABOD and MtnBikeMarty - That door window is definitely on my upgrade list now. Gotta figure out something about that rear-window! Also, thanks for the info on door locks - I did follow up with couple of companies selling keyless lock on Amazon (for coach) - they confirmed that they do NOT make replacement lock for 28A Majestic. Turns out 28A has odd size door lock opening - 7"h 4.25" w. If anyone has found a solution (or a manufacturer who makes keyless lock for 28A ) let me know!

One more question - has anyone gotten door locks (both to the coach and also driver/passenger doors) replaced with remote/keyless entry??

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

I thought that if some of you that follow this thread may have missed a post that I made on a Majestic 28A that a family member just bought that had a ladder on it,this may help if you decide you want put one on. Here are the pictures that I have of the ladder on his 28A https://i.imgur.com/Vzal4sPl.jpg "border=0" https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. This is how it is mounted at the bottomhttps://i.imgur.com/HvkykvAl.jpg height=220 https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. Mounted 14 inches from the edgehttps://i.imgur.com/8YvbQtwl.jpg height=220 https://i.imgur.com/m3zZPvb.pngClick For Full-Size Image. This one is like the one installed I hope this helps,:B I hope all you Former Rental Owners are having a great camping season,I know that mine has been outstanding. Hi IAMICHABOD - thanks for link to this from 2018.. This looks different than 28A that I have - mine does not have a rear-window. Indeed - I was wondering if it is possible to add a rear window just above the bed! Is this a different version of 28A or did someone add a window! :)

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Trying to replace standard AGM battery (which is dead) with LiFePO4 battery on my CA Majestic 28A. Anyone know the location of alternator diode/solenoid so I can simply disconnect it (or put in a current limiter or a switch)??? I looked at this and heard from multiple people (who I'm sure know more than I) to put a proper charge controller in. The LiFePO4s are expensive things to blow up by overcharging. I looked at it some more and decided to get the local shop to put one in as part of a solar install. I have a solar charge controller installed already. But this it seems requires a DC-DC charge controller (another $200 or so). Just wondering if I can simply disconnect alternator to house battery charging mechanism for now.

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Vehicle: (2015) 2017 Majestic 19G Problem: The coach battery only powers the 120v outlets when the RV is connected to shore power or when/if the generator is running. Question: Does anyone know what would have to be done to have it so that I can utilize the coach's battery without being plugged in or having the generator running? If someone has a wiring diagram for this model, that would be great. I am looking into adding a secondary battery bank; however, based on our power requirements I think I could get away with just tapping into the coach's battery for outlet power and recharging the battery when in motion (or using the generator). I do not need constant power from the coach battery, but I would like to tap into it without having to dump $500-750 in battery gear (or running the generator). I have connected three 12V (cigarette lighter) outlets along with USB outlets in my 28a - you can plug in any inventor into those and as long as you do not exceed the wattage (try not to run too much from it - max limit is 120W of a standard 12V lighter outlet); you will have 120V outlet. I would use it only for things like charging computer or low wattage devices. Here is the link to 12V outlet I bought https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B08DTCQKDB You can splice into any LED light cable and in fact install this right next to it. I put one each over the dinette seat and one over the back bed. Used it with 12V heater blankets (~36W) and they worked perfect (no need to heat up the entire camper all night). (For those curious - I bought these blankets - https://www.bestbuy.com/site/stalwart-electric-car-blanket-heated-12v-polar-fleece-travel-throw-for-car-truck-rv-great-for-tailgating-emergency-kits-black-white-plaid/6425651.p?skuId=6425651) Here is an example or inverter (no idea how good it is - I just did a search on Amazon - but there are many you can choose from on Amazon or any other store. https://www.amazon.com/BESTEK-Inverter-Converter-Adapter-Thinner/dp/B07DVXNSDH Now if you want to run the microwave - you would need a massive battery and a direct battery connected inverter. :)
