RE: House Battery charging

Yes solar. My 100w panel on my roof keeps my two coach and one chassis battery topped off. I never have to worry about them draining down while parked. I use an mppt controller .

RE: Need help to find a replacement fuel door - 2005 Gulfstream

Thetford makes the fuel doors on many class c rvs. Amazon it ! Thetford rv fuel doors. If you cant match one up, go to a body shop. A good fabricator can fabricate anything.

RE: Furnace black smoke

Did we cover this already ? The LP gas ? It might be bad Lp. Depending on how the last lp supplier maintained his eq , could mean his contaminated lp, contaminated your tank. Might now be the time for a pro lp tech to come in. This could be a dangerous situation . Don’t use it !

RE: Furnace black smoke

This vid shows cleaning an rv furnace. Cleaning out baby birds. Thats right… birds ! The kind with wings . :B When you wash your rv , make sure you don’t spray water into the furnace vents. I would think that would cause some rust. Im still thinking an air inlet issue.

RE: Where can I find this RV?

Fitting 43’ of rv amenities into a 28’ space will be a challenge. With everything you listed, its going to be thin pickings. You might have to choose a non-slide floorplan which is not necessarily a bad thing. Less to go wrong. Most 28’ class C’s have a folding queen bed unless you go to a non- slide floorplan like Gulfstream Conquest 6280LE Coachmen Cross-Trek 27XG. You will have a split bath and the recliner option in place of the sofa, may or may not be available . Im not sure if there is enough aisle room to recline. But you are gaining a comfortable island full QB which is easy to get in/ out and where you will be spending 1/3 of your day, every day. I would check the websites of Phoenix Cruiser, Leisure Vans and Coach House to see if there is a B+ that suits your needs. Expect pricing to be much higher plus the floorplans might not be what you want.

RE: Furnace black smoke

I replaced the regulator and still have the same issue. So frustrated. Could low voltage cause this? First thing to know. When you pulled the furnace out to test it outside of the rv, did you use the same 12v power source or a different power source ? There is a link that i saved that might be worth a read. It might cover something you missed. It covers outside and inside furnace operation.

RE: New here with 2019 Melbourne Prestige 24LP

Welcome and congrats on your new rv. Storage will be an issue, its a small rv. I use a rear ladder bike rack to haul chairs. I bought an “Esbit Portable Folding Charcoal BBQ Grill with Carrying Bag” Amazon has it for $106.00. Its stainless and folds up to the size of a book. It uses charcoal or wood equally well for bbq’ing. Using wood requires more attention , needs to be cut small and fed while cooking. Charcoal, you light it and leave it.

RE: Addressing truck/wind push in a Sprinter based Class C

I installed a rear track bar on my Ford Sunseeker and it helped with bow waves of overtaking trucks as well as trucks traveling in the opposite direction on 2 lane roads. As It was explained to me , Its suppose to eliminate the slight side to side movement of the rear axle . The track bar attaches the rv frame and axle shaft making it a solid connection. Without a track bar that movement gets transferred to the front axle affecting steering. It helped with bow waves but didn't eliminate them completely. Imo, out of all my aftermarket mods, the track bar gave me the most bang for the buck. I would imagine that it would have the same benefit on the Sprinter chassis.

RE: No power from house batterys

If the switch is on then i would , Remove the cables to the battery and check the voltage. 12.6 - 12.8 range would be a fully charged battery. If there is no 12v power once you replace the cables, i would check the fuses and make sure the ground connection off the neg battery terminal to the chassis ground is clean.

RE: oil filter?

Fleet vehicles being operated for so many miles don’t care which oil filter is being used. Changing the oil and filter at regular intervals will keep todays gas engines running smoothly for hundreds of thousand’s of miles. Problems can occur with rvs that sit idle for long periods of time , not being driven. That can do more engine harm than any oil filter will do. Drive it ! Use it ! Don’t be fooled in todays world in which we live. Just because it says made in USA doesn’t mean it is ! Btw, i think the new Ford 7.3 uses the same filter as the V10 - FL 820S, cross reference it to be sure. That info , as said, is available on any automotive parts site.

RE: Front Receiver Hitch

Go talk to a reputable welder and have one fabricated to fit.

RE: Class C with the chevy 6.6 gas engine

Just remember that your slide will protrude 2’ out when/if you nap in rest areas. You might want to park left side to curb to protect yourself so a distracted driver doesn't give the headache of a lifetime.

RE: Air Bags for my Gulfstream

Just s thought. An adjustable receiver head will level an empty car hauler. Use a tongue weight scale while loading it. ‘Knowing the hitch weight’, which will change if you haul various cars or add and subtract weight in the rear of the tv. Not that its a bad idea but you might not need the WD hitch. Adjusting the load front to rear on the car hauler will alter the needed tongue weight to the 10-15% mark. This can be done easier on a car hauler opposed to a travel trailer that you as well as myself are accustomed to. This might be easier if you haul the same stuff all the time using the same hauler trailer .

RE: Air Bags for my Gulfstream

I tried the AL wireless compressor and ended up having the AF dealer remove the whole system. It leaked and kept cycling to refill the bags. The dealer tried for two days to locate the leak with no luck. We replaced every component. AL was of little help. In order clear my driveway apron , I was trying to gain some ground clearance from an already level motorhome which it did not do. The AL system on my Ford would only lift a sagging rv back up to level, which will work for you but did not for me. But the wireless system seems to have flaws. I would go manual.
