RE: 12 volt DC not charging on shore power.

Clean the negative battery post to where it grounds to the chassis. Probably a bolt within close prox of the battery. I had the same symptoms as you and the ground rusted and corroded. I just ran another new ground to a clean bolt. All work fine after that.

RE: Winterizing a Leprechaun 260ds

For Bob: it’s no big deal, you could stand there and hold the jug, but my way is easier for me. It’s only about 5 minutes a year I was referring to the lack of info on the videos. :) Jack, what you are doing is fine.

That’s crazy ! Such a professional operation. Especially regarding something most everyone has to perform. :(

RE: Anyone using Lithium batteries? Comments?

Tnx VA-, that sounds great. Don't forget to include a good fishing story. Even if you have to make one up. :B

RE: Swapping out the Water Pump

Under the shower pan? Behind the toilet? Behind the fridge? What were those manufactures thinking? Apparently not thinking. If you look real close, on the last page of the owners manual, it states "assembled by disgruntled employees" . :E

RE: Question about Inverter/Charging batteries

Hope this makes sense! Makes no sense to me. :h :? https://community.fmca.com/topic/6161-inverter-turn-off-while-on-shore-power/ If you were plugged into a 120v power source then you would not have a problem. You would run the heater directly off the shore power bypassing the inverter. Seems like you are not hooked up to a power source , like 120v shore power and running your electric 120v heater is draining your two 12v batteries, because the heater is running off the inverter, draining the batteries. Is that what is happening ? Are you attempting to LOOP your power from an outlet feeding from your inverter, then attempting to LOOP that 120v inverter power back into an inside power outlet as an "INPUT' power source to charge your batteries , so you can replenish what your heater is extracting from them ? If that's what you are trying to do, then NO, you can't do that.

RE: Swapping out the Water Pump

Look for a front panel to remove for access to the pump under the shower.

RE: motorized awnings

:) This kind of rv quality makes us thankful for shady trees. Someone here once took a sawsall to his broken awning during a camping trip. :B I have had a few malfunctions on the manual C of C models. The scissor models that pull straight out like a shade , have even more problems. I always carry tarps and an e z up awning. And my go to tool , a SAWSALL.

RE: motorized awnings

Solera awnings I have to unscrew a holding screw then use a cordless drill or ratchet to roll it back in. I would need to stand on a picnic table or carry a folding ladder to reach the deployed awning motor for access.

RE: Replace bed in 23' Thor Majestic for dinette

Have you discussed this idea with legal consul ? In your home state where its registered , does the DMV and ins co. get involved when you alter a motor vehicles passenger capacity ? What comes to my mind is : RV’s and accidents , I can tell you they do not hold up well and tend to flatten out on impact. What once was inside is now outside on the highway. No airbag protection and Lap-belts are not harnesses , passengers can suffer serious injuries with just a lapbelt. For now , I honestly think you should scrap this idea of YOU altering a motor vehicle to transport passengers. You really should get a legal consultation before you go any further. All MV’s get impounded in the event of a fatality or serious phys injury MV accident. You are putting YOURSELF in a position of liability IMO. YOU are the one that altered it. ASK a legal opinion from an attorney with experience in this field .

RE: Replace bed in 23' Thor Majestic for dinette

Water tank would be the largest item IF... the rear pass thru storage area isnt there too. You might not be able to do it. Smaller things under the bed can be heat ducts, water pump, water lines , bypass valves and electrical for your converter panel. Seatbelt anchoring must be done to the rv frame. Metal chassis not the wood frame.

RE: Up grading my Class C

I love this rig however its getting old You never know what your getting into buying a new rv never mind a used one. If your above statement is really true, then you might want to consider sinking some money into what you have to tweak it up to par, both the chassis as well as the living quarters. Yes, it will be thousands of dollars but you already know what you have and you will know even better...what you will have. :)

RE: Generator/Shore Power Work, Battery Power Doesn't

It is a resistor. Resistors get larger with higher watt ratings to dissipate the heat. Either way just replace that converter already. :B For a couple of hundred $ you would be getting a multi stage converter .

RE: Lift

Pnichols, thank you for the tire info. The scan gauge or gps can be used as a speedometer.

RE: 2016 Winnebago Navion inside wall paneling loose?

This link will offer help. They are basically all put together the same way. Some staple, some glue, some two sided tape. You can order 'rv interior trim tape' to cover any staples or brads that you decide to use. https://www.jaycoowners.com/forums/f7/interior-panels-coming-loose-47665.html

RE: Lift

The best way to lift everything (suspension, transmission, engine, shock mounts, etc.) higher is by installing taller tires. I did this on our Class C years ago to provide more clearance when we occasionally go on dirt/gravel backroads. Our Class C's chassis is the Ford E450, so it has plenty of extra fender tire well room for tires that our larger in diameter than what came stock on it. pnichols, has “nailed it”! The chassis/frame/body are generally the contact points on irregular terrain.....the only way to address all of these is taller tires! Awaiting my newish ( on unit when we purchased) tires to wear out or “date expire”.....will be going taller, for sure! memtb What tire size ? Will you need to adjust the speedometer ? Will they fit the wheels already on the truck ? You will need to upgrade the spare too. 7 tires and maybe wheels ? How much height is the expected gain ?

RE: Living space

I had an uncomfortable u-shaped dinette in my C. I removed the cushions , i used the OEM plywood platforms to bolt down the round swivel pedestal bases of 2 gaming chairs from Amazon . I was able to keep the table in place and the comfort of the reclining high back gaming chairs is awesome for eating as well as tv viewing, not to mention a nap. If i sell the rv, it can be sold with the chairs or the OEM u dinette. The base wood framework was not altered. I still have the exact same foundation for storage. I even have more storage bc i can access the compartment below the dinette window much easier to use it now. The chairs are light and can be lifted while attached to the plywood to access storage below. BTW, i found extra seat belts tucked away that were hidden under a board below the dinette that were previously not visible to me. The number of persons my rv sleeps matches the number of seatbelts. Previously i had posted that i did not have an equal amount of belts, so i stand corrected. Someone here had posted that the sleeping / seatbelt number should match on all rvs , you are correct. :C Giantex 360 Degree Swivel Gaming Chair Floor Chair, 6 Positions Adjustable Backrest, Mesh Fabric, Sturdy Iron use conduit 'c' clamps around the tube base to secure the base to the plywood. Swivel the seat so you access a drill to install.
