RE: 30 amp plug assistance needed

Thank you everyone! A miracle occurred. Or it's Murphy's Law. I went outside to water plants and the repair guy showed up. I had waited 3 weeks. Poor guy is worked to death. Anyhow, he repaired my RV AC, so it runs now. I'm still going to be looking into these fixes and links so that I can use it with the next rig, if need be. Better than being caught flat-footed like this time. Thanks again...seriously

RE: 30 amp plug assistance needed

That should work just fine Thank you. Finding the right words to describe my problem was an issue. I'm going to get one then. I'll have to order it, but I can put a rush on it. Thank you. We still want our Majestic, but the pandemic has delayed things. We're trying to keep our unit going in the meantime.

RE: 30 amp plug assistance needed

I found this and wonder if it would work. I can roof a house, but I stink when it comes to electrical stuff. https://i.imgur.com/hCK5zgrl.jpg

RE: 30 amp plug assistance needed

If you plug into shore power your outlets in your RV should then have power. Maybe I am missing something. I have power to my outlets. The portable AC pulls 10 amps. The circuit breaker is rated for 15, but I think the previous owners overloaded it more than once as it flips easily. I want to be able to plug in outside at the shore power post. That way, I'm not putting the portable on a crappy breaker. However, the post only has the one 30 amp outlet. Think of it like putting a multi plug adapter on an outlet in your home, but with the 30 amp instead. That way I can plug in outside and bypass the rig system. I hope that made more sense.

30 amp plug assistance needed

Hi, I attempted to do a search, but had little luck. If this belongs elsewhere, let me know. I'm in a 2650BH Passport ultra lite. It's going to the junkyard before long, but I need an emergency fix to get us through the heat. Yes, we're full timers. AC needs major repair and I'm not investing in that now. I also need new circuit breakers as two were iffy anyway, but if I don't put much on them, they're fine. My 30 amp cord is hardwired. The shore power box is just for the 30 amp. No additional outlets. I need to be able to bypass the rig system to plug in a portable AC. Portable pulls 10 amps, but the 15 amp breaker was already screwy. Need an alternative. Is there a piggyback type of adapter that will permit me to plug in my rig on the shore power, but also give me an outlet for AC? I hope I was clear enough. If not, ask away. And thanks in advance. My parents passed earlier in the year and once their estate is settled, we can look for a new rig. We're stuck in the meantime.

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

I can't remember if anyone posted the information previously, but here is a link to the Cruise America BUYER RESOURCE Page. Currently it goes back to 2007 models. It has MANUALS for the Ford Chassis and Thor or Four Winds. Also, as previously posted, you can register on Thor website for more resources. Thor RV Owner Resources Cruise America Buyer Resources 2007-Present https://www.cruiseamerica.com/help/resources/buyer-s-resources https://www.thormotorcoach.com/owner-resource/ Thank you for the links. We don't have our rig yet, it's nice to know where to find stuff when we do.

RE: Class C RV cost in the Covid era...

I had noticed the price changes while researching. We aren't ready to buy yet, so hopefully prices will shift down again by the time we are. Our goal is to have a new roof over our heads before the end of the year though, so I'll keep my fingers crossed that Cruise America drops their prices a bit.

Eldel, I like your project a lot. It looks really good. SJ-Chris, thank you very much for the offer. I will holler if need be.

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

I can't speak exactly about the unit you're buying, as mine is the smaller 23A. I'm going to assume your problems with mounting a TV in the bedroom area will be these two; routing a cable for an antenna and powering the TV. mounting the TV shouldn't be a problem, a flat screen isn't that heavy depending on the size. If you mount it under an overhead cabinet, for example, you could tap into a light fixture for 12 volts. If you get a TV that runs on 110 volts, you'll have to either be on shore power or the generator to run the TV. So buy a TV that runs on 12 volts and you'll bypass that problem. (TV's that run on 110 volts have a transformer in them to convert it to 12 volts anyway). I will assume you'll have an antenna on the roof, which means you'll have to add that. You'll have to run an coax cable from that antenna to the TV, and you'll probably want to power that coax to amplify the signal so you'll need power for that (12v). The roof vent for the refrigerator will give you a path from the roof down to underneath the unit so that's a good way to run the coax. From underneath the unit you can go into the storage area and then up to the bed. A bedroom TV can be done, but you'll need a antenna that rotates to get a signal and you have to be within 50ish miles from the TV transmitter or stay in campgrounds that have cable available. If all you be using the TV for is to watch DVD's, then the installation will be much simpler. Or, you could get a tablet that operates on 4g and then anywhere you get a cell signal you'll have entertainment from anywhere in or out of the TV. It's what I do. Thank you! I currently only use the cable hookup in my trailer for my internet and we use the tv for dvds and streaming. Once, the tv was wired into the dvd player that came with the trailer. It quit working soon after we got it (used). When I pulled the player, I found a mess of wires that reminded me of matted dog hair. I've never seen anything like it before or since. I disconnected from that without regret. However, I wouldn't mind having an antenna again so I'm saving this info for now and for later. Thanks again

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

Thank you for the nice welcome. I haven't posted on a forum in a very long time, so I have to learn how it works again. Please forgive any errors. The couch will come out regardless as it wouldn't be needed and I can make better use of that space. I can put the litterbox there, if need be. The dog crate will go there too. One final question for now. Is there any cable and/or electrical to put a tv in the bedroom? Is the wall strong enough? I'm sure I can ask when we see one. I don't need one in the front of the house. Eldel, thanks for the battery info and thanks to IAMICHABOD for the links. I'm now off to read them. At this point we're 99% certain that we're going for a 28a, especially after reading this thread. The info is terrific. I will certainly provide an update when we get the ball rolling on this.

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

Well golly. I just finished reading all 154 pages and many, if not most, of my questions have been answered. I've truly enjoyed reading about all the fixes and changes and whatnot. Thanks to all for the info. My husband and I are seriously considering the Majestic 28a. We would like to go talk to someone and considered going to Newark on Friday. Then I remembered the holiday. We'll wait. I would guess that they would be too busy. I have several questions that deal with the bedroom. We're full timers and have two cats and a dog. Pepi, the dog, is a dachshund/beagle mix. Short legs. Any suggestions to make it easier for her to get on the bed? I figure I'll have a better idea of what I can do once I get a better look. I'll probably have to build something. Also, is there any way to make a cat-sized opening for access from the bedroom to the rear storage? Keeping the litterboxes in the storage bay would be so much nicer. Thanks in advance.
