RE: Masterbuilt or Char Broil

Whatever you buy also buy a smoker tube. The tubes put out much more smoke than the built-in boxes. They also allow you to cold smoke cheese, fish, etc.

RE: Ever hear of this camping company? Harvest Host

Haha! yes it isn't for everyone. We've been HH members for years. It's a much better overnight stopover than a Walmart or other crowded busy place. Most HH places we've stayed are out in the country at a farm or winery, along a river or other peaceful setting. All of the hosts we've met are very nice, yes they usually have products to sell but we've never felt obligated to buy anything. We've tasted and bought some very nice wines and farm products but that is what we would have purchased at a store anyway.

RE: Lithium Batteries

The bigger issue is the float voltage. After a LiFePO4 battery is fully charged you want the float voltage to be no higher than what the manufacturer recommends. If your converter doesn't float at or below that voltage then just turn it off until you need to charge it again.

RE: Aqua Hot 450D troubleshooting cool air zone 2 (front)

Does this have the clear cube relays like the older model? If so pull them and reseat them. They sometimes get loose.

RE: Trinidad CO to Clayton NM (160->389->551->325->64)

Last year we took 160 at Trinidad to bypass Raton pass in our 36' towing. 160 is a narrow road with very little shoulder and hardly any place to pull over. Not a road I'd do again in a large rig. Very remote area. Raton pass other than the construction just before Raton heading south isn't bad. Easy pass compared to others in Colorado.

RE: Fuel mileage

Fuel mileage was never as much a concern as was range. I like to know how far can I go with what it's in my tank and where to fillup. But for those who care I've averaged 8mpg in both my 45' Newell and 36' Foretravel. That's driving 62 mph.

RE: DP oil change near dfw, texas

Might be a bit more than you want to drive but I've used Nacogdoches Motorhome Services in Nacogdoches of course. Great guys, quick, and they can do almost anything you want or need.

RE: Floorplan Help (rear living room)

Newell made a few with either a Murphy bed or some with a lounge area in the rear, typically used as an entertainer coach built for racing companies.

RE: Cost to have someone wash your FW

Look into Wash Wax All. I've been using that exclusively to wash my motorhomes for years. Most places accept using it since you're not using water. Quick and simple to do.

RE: Favorite Leftovers Recipes

Leftover meat especially with the gravy is great for adding to a packet of Ramen soup. Especially if you have some extra veggies to toss in.

RE: Fire in the coach.

LiFePO4 batteries are definitely MUCH safer than Lithium Ions. The recommended procedure is to flood the batteries with water IF they catch fire. Please do your research these are two completely different chemistries. Not sure what the batteries Tom/Barb is using but if LiFePO4 there is no concern for safety. I have 3 Battleborn 100 amp batteries in my motorhome and in a previous motorhome built a 1000 amphour system using Winston cells. Very safe systems, no concerns with fire.

RE: Online order

Good luck. I placed an order on May 17 for 2 Furrion A/Cs and it took over 3 weeks for the components to trickle in. I called over 5 times and got a different answer each time. Then I was told the 2 air distribution boxes were backordered for 2-3 weeks after I finally received the other components. So I ordered these 2 and paid for 2 day delivery so I could finish this install and cancelled the CW order for these 2. Two days after I received the order from another supplier 1 showed up crushed and damaged. The worst part? A friend ordered the same 2 days after I did and received his entire order in 1 week!

RE: Coleman thermostats sensor wires

Use colored ty-wraps to mark each wire, makes it real easy to know what wire goes where.

RE: Aqua Hot & Residential vs. non-R - seeking Info, Dinette too

To add to this Aquahot also has an electric heating element to provide heat and hot water. Not as much as the diesel burner but in our Foretravel it is usually adequate down to 40ºF for hot water and heat. But there is maintenance required for the diesel burner so make certain there is adequate access.

RE: Buying an AC online??

I recently bought 2 Furrions from and they sat on my order for 2 weeks before shipping. Each time I called I was told something different. When I placed the order the salesman said everything was in stock. I even had to buy 2 inside grills from PPL and pay for 2 day shipping to complete my install because CW told me those were now on 2-3 week backorder. Surprised when 1 showed up a couple days later. CW needs to get their act together. A friend who ordered the same a couple days after I ordered received his complete order in about a week.

RE: low price Li batteries

Thanks pianotuna, just edited my post. That makes it more desirable especially if having multiple batteries.
