  1. Have been reading and support by donating for years...
  2. We use Zero G water hoses. They make 2 types, one for Potable (drinking) water and one as a normal water hose. They are from the marine industry, They come in 1/2 and 5/8 sizes and in various lengths.. We have used them for a few years now. Easily coiled up to put extra connected hose inside water bay so no long lengths left outside our water bay and very easy to coil up and store when not in use. No kinks and very light weight. Check them out. Stay safe, Stay well, Safe travels.
  3. Jim.... You did not mention how old the batteries are. Do you know the age of those Chassis Batteries?
  4. Our 2 cats are gone now to be with their brothers and sisters in heaven. But we have had that same experience when the cats used the steering wheel to climb onto the dash as night. Stay safe, Stay well, Safe travels
  5. rpasetto asked about replacing his CHASSIS batteries. Many of the replies were about those who replaced their HOUSE batteries. My coach has two 12 Volt Chassis batteries. There is not enough room for four 6 Volt batteries and I do not know of anyone who has done that change. To my knowledge all batteries have some kind of label on them that shows when they were made and or installed among other data. Clean off the label(s) as best as possible and take a picture as best as possible. Hopefully a battery dealer can tell you how old they are. So, lets talk about batteries. I know
  6. RIP Bill. You were a great help to so many and had so many friends. Condolences to your family and friends. Your smile and personality will be sorely missed.
  7. When thinking about changing from standard wet cell to AGM type House Batteries, call the manufacturer of your inverter to make sure your inverter works with AGM batteries. If it does, then go through, with the manufacturer tech, all the different charging settings because the charge times and percentages available to verify their performance is what you are looking for as they are different for AGM batteries. Just changing your inverter from Standard to AGM without changing additional charge settings can result in inferior and or damaging battery performance. My Magnum inverter has various
  8. Mike,

     

    My Interstate Dealer installed my new AGM house batteries for free and still gave me a Military discount on the batteries.  That convinced me to choose Interstate.  Not all Interstate Dealers install batteries in Motor Homes but mine did.  Maybe yours will.

      Unfortunately last July when I had to replace my Interstate Chassis batteries they charged me $20 to 'install' each battery.  Final bill was $381.88 just to have the 2 batteries dropped down into the engine compartment.  That's the last time I will be using Interstate.  I plan on replacing my 6 yr old Interstate flooded house batteries with AGM's and it appears I'll be going with the SAM's Club Duracells that are currently $179.93 each and I need 8 of them.  I've been waiting a year for them to go on sale ($20 off) again but it doesn't look like that's going to happen.  I have time as I don't plan on doing any boondocking and we always stay at FHU campgrounds anyway but I would like to take advantage of our Harvest Host membership.

  9. I got to a point when I was done with standard wet cell house batteries for our Coach. I had been using a sealed AGM style battery in my race car for years and years as they are required for safety reasons and do no leak if the car gets up side down. The Chassis batteries are sealed AGM style, for good reasons. I made sure my Magnum Inverter could be reprogrammed for AGM style batteries as they require different charging rates among other options, which it does, and I spent the extra money and purchased some Interstate AGM batteries for the house side. Besides the obvious advantage of almo
  10. We have 2 transponders. One for our Motor Home and one for what ever car we put it on. The one for the motor home stays in the motor home. When we have our Toad hooked up to the Motor Home, The transponder for the Toad is wrapped in tin foil and in the glove compartment. We have heard of a customer that was told to return his old transponder back to the Headquarters that is in Long Island then (maybe now also). He was from our area near Buffalo, NY. He put it a small package and mailed it out. He failed to wrap it in tin foil. The transponder went on a truck to Long Island via I-90

    That 9.98 second 1/4 mile run was made 29 years ago back in 1992. We have moved twice since then. I have looked for my record/time books but have not found them. I have not raced the car since 1992 and it sat until 2009 when we started converting it over to the street, which took over 2 years. Below is a picture of the steering wheel and center instrument cluster lowered as we worked on the wiring Yellow light is for shift points, red light is for low oil pressure. Ivan. Nice Camaro . Running with a blower takes more engineering and more work. Tuning older carbs gets tricky bec

  13. Dennis - thanks for the manual listing. That is a lot of effort and time on your part. There maay not be anything for me with my newer coach but I am sure others will appreciate this listing. Stay safe, Stay well. Dick

    Due to some physical problems I retired at age 42 and that retired me from my drag racing hobby as a driver. But I was able to continue in drag racing for many years as an engine builder and crew member turning wrenches and washing parts. I have spent 2 years converting my Blown 1972 Ford Pinto drag car to a Pavement Pounding Street Car for cruise nights and car shows. I am also a Ham Radio Operator and have communicated with every country on earth except North Korea. I have been involved with home computers since 1978. I still follow the Space Program as I worked on Project Apollo from 1
