RE: Dry as a bone,…again

I was losing ALOT of water flowing out the vent tube and filler pipe while traveling; especially doing a sharp turn at speed and could watch it spilling out the side (some folks thought I was losing gas). To fix this, I put a turn-off valve in the line for the vent tube (used a on/off valve for lawn mower gas line). Also, I shove a piece of old towel into the filler pipe and cap the filler tube while traveling. I used to lose 1/2 my 40 gallons of water during a trip and now, not one drop! I've spent 7 days on the beach dry camping and still had water. Traveling uses a lot of wasted water right out the side of the RV.

RE: recommendations for class C for overnights at ski resort

Check with Quigley FIRST.....they do NOT convert every RV out there. They have length/width/weight requirements that must be met or they will NOT convert it. Last conversation I had, it had to be 0-5 years old.

RE: HarvestHost......anyone using it?

Yes, the lack of a real map showing the HH sites prior to joining is really a poor business decision IMHO. We're all grown adults who have $$ to spend on memberships that may benefit us as well as the product being sold (overnighting). But "sight unseen" leaves an empty feeling inside and warning flags galore.

HarvestHost......anyone using it?

Saw ad on Facebook and since I don't travel often, and rarely like staying in the campgrounds, wondering if this might be a good option? Stayed in Wallymart parking lots overnight and it's ok but sometimes quite loud/bright but doable. Free parking overnight on farms, wineries, etc. for an annual fee of $79. Only drawback from literature I saw was the need to arrive before closing time. I guess so they know you're a member and legit. PS: Other than calling a local campground and paying to empty tanks, are there other places that offer this well-needed facility while traveling and boondocking?

RE: Mini-split in compartment

Hmmm....cloudy/rainy days don't allow much solar energy for your batteries. As mentioned above, I wouldn't consider boondocking without the option of running a generator to power a/c & heat as well as keeping your battery bank fully charged. What if you have a battery failure? No propane, no generator and you're in for an awful time. I spent 5 days on a deserted island with 40mph winds/rain/clouds and was sooooo thankful for my generator! Weather can change on a dime and your outdoor experience must be able to adapt. Good luck.

RE: Height of class C?

Yep, definitely measure your vehicle! Don't forget, size of tires could increase this height ( I have taller tires for better ground clearance ). Had to make sure of my height when building my RV garage last summer; measure twice to avoid serious damage.

RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

Yep.......confirmed with SeatShop and that's correct. Looks similar but is wider than standard. Guess I'll just get local upholstery shop to fix the bottom seat for me. Thanks all for the replies!!

RE: Replacing Ford drivers seat........

Well, placed an order with the "SeatShop" for just the bottom cushion. They just called me and stated "we've never found our product to work for an RV" and refunded my money. Hmmmm, stated on their site this was for an econoline Ford E-250, E-350 seat. I've got the E-450 but shouldn't make any difference. Any comments?

Replacing Ford drivers seat........

2004 Ford E-450. Anyone replace their drivers side seat? Trying to search online but limited results for Class C. Was going to call savage yard to see if they may know of a source, but, would rather install new versus used. Last option, have the seat reupholstered but Covid has made that somewhat difficult with delay times. Thanks for any leads.

RE: Bedroom tv in CA 28a

My 2004 Fourwinds 5000 28A came with a TV cabinet in the corner of the wall backing to the shower and was pre-wired. I also ran an electrical cord from inverter beneath RV and up through the floor to run TV from house batteries. I only use this if kids in camper and they use the TV/DVD to watch their movies. You could also do similar in yours. Good luck.

RE: Awning Repair Help?

Mine did this only at the bottom.....I put Gorilla glue construction caulking (not the glue) in the hole, and used a slightly larger lag bolt with fine thread (coated the threads too) and also applied caulk behind the bracket and just screwed it back in. Seems to be working just fine.

RE: Can you buy new what CA rents

Well, I have the Fourwinds 28A model and absolutely love this layout! I have the rear window, door window, all the normal items since mine was not a rental unit. The fact that the bathroom door swings out to block the rear bedroom/bath from the living area was my major "like" since I planned to use mine with lots of friends on the beach coming in and didn't want to make everyone get out if someone was using the shower or getting dressed in the bedroom. I got to most RV shows when in town and have yet to find a floor plan I like better. At 120,000 miles, mine is a keeper for me!

RE: E450 Fuel Filler Hose Leak

I’ll definitely have mine replaced immediately if it ever happens again. Mine leaked about 2 feet from the nozzle well before the frame . I put a 5 gallon bucket beneath that area prior to fueling just in case I saw a leak. I’ve had no error code/idiot lights show up. I did notice the gas pump was really pushing the gas out very fast as I could hear it and feel it in the handle, which made me think it wasn’t my issue. But the gas did hit the pavement so Murphy’s Law will surely see it being repaired.

RE: E450 Fuel Filler Hose Leak

Odd.....mine did this last week for the first time (2003 Ford E450). Maybe a pint of gas hit the pavement after fill it up with 40 gallons. I put gas in twice after that and leaked nothing. Was wondering if it was the gas station spout or if it's the filler line on my RV? Thought I'd leave it alone until a few more fill-ups to see if it happens again before putting it in the shop for replacement.

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

Battleborn website and technicians have confirmed that no damage at all to these batteries. Supposed to be able to fully discharge 3000-5000 cycles and even then, the batteries will retain 80% of their original capacity. That said, they recommend around 11v to go ahead and charge back up.

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

UPDATE: Very impressed with this setup. Lowest I ever got the batteries during the day was 12.5v . Using the satellite TV does require I turn off the receiver or it draws power during the night. Using microwave was the best thing without generator power. Much less stress overall. Next trip I'm going to run system down below 12v and see how long it takes before a recharge. As for fishing, I'd have to lie and that, I cannot do!
