  1. How Do MH Engine Batteries Receive Their Charge?

    Good question. It would be extremely unusual for the refrigerator 120 VAC outlet to be off the inverter-- would really negate the purpose of having an absorption refrigerator. But, super easy to check. Unplug from shore power, generator off, inverter off: Either plug voltmeter or any 120 VAC device (hair dryer works well) into the outlet behind the refrigerator that the refrigerator is normally plugged into. Better be no power there. Now, turn on inverter and repeat test. Very likely it will still be "no power". If there is power, look for another place to plug in. I have even seen the two outlet plugs behind the refrigerator with one powered by shore only and the other by inverter. Generally the inverter outlet is for an ice maker.
  2. Sway VS Body Roll

    I believe this is the site Bill is referring to-- an excellent resource for Safari Trek owners: http://www.trektraxs.com/ And, agree with Bill on the Koni FSD's for DP's, but the Chevrolet/Workhorse P is a completely different beast. As Bill suggested, check for current recommendations (shocks do change over the years) for your chassis.
  3. Sway VS Body Roll

    Bilstein makes good shocks, but at 20 years old, that is where I would start. Have you gone to polyurethane sway bar bushings front and back. A LOT less $$ than replacing with larger diameter bar and should help if the bushings are the OE rubber ones.
  4. Air Bags Replacement

    Herman, My understanding is a bit different. After Monaco's bankruptcy, the "new Monaco" discontinued using the (more expensive) Roadmaster chassis and went with Freightliner chassis. I am not aware of any information that Freightliner would have (other than generic information) about the Roadmaster chassis. But, the Roadmaster chassis (there are several) has been widely enough used that many shops are familiar with them. And, replacing an air bag is NOT rocket science.
  5. Sway VS Body Roll

    Your P chassis has front air bags (inside coil springs). What are they inflated to? Tire pressure correct? How old and how many miles on what shocks. Certainly good shocks help control body motion. Yes sway is the side to side motion you are describing. Could also be described as body roll.

    I suspect quite a number use this as the "home page" for the FMCA Forum. It takes you right to posts you have not read: http://community.fmca.com/discover/unread/
  7. Areas will also be skewed by full timers. Example: Many full timers use Escapees, Livingston, TX as their "home"/mailing address. So many that it has become an issue for local politics (people who have never been there are a high percent of voters for local elections).
  8. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    At OP (Jeff's) request, this thread is locked. The discussion has been moved to: http://community.fmca.com/topic/11867-one-member-one-vote-change-to-convention-delegates/ Brett/Moderator
  9. Jeff, Would you like the other thread locked-- don't see having two discussions going on the same topic going at the same time. Other thread: http://community.fmca.com/topic/11842-proposed-change-to-fmcas-governance/ Brett/Moderator
  10. How Do MH Engine Batteries Receive Their Charge?

    You can also purchase "properly large-gauge" pre-made interconnects from any marine dealer. Yes, more expensive, but the pre-tinned (marine grade) wire is MUCH more resistant to corrosion than raw copper.
  11. How Do MH Engine Batteries Receive Their Charge?

    Wire gauge for interconnects should be the same as the primary cables. What size are they now? Remember, an inverter can put a huge load on the batteries/cables.
  12. Invoice Pricing From Freightliner/Chrysler

    Yup, 6.25% on taxable difference (price of new less price of trade-in). So, yes, trading in saves 6.25% vs selling on your own. Clearly, if you can't get more than 6.25% over trade-in value....
  13. Proposed Change To FMCA's Governance

    Actually, if you belong to multiple chapters, what you can do is "Influence your National Director's vote" in each chapter you belong to. That is, if you care to. As you know, many do not care enough to delve into each issue facing the governing board and express an opinion. When was the last time any of your chapters sat down and went through the many pages of documents that the governing board votes on and had individual members vote on each one???
