  1. Thanks, that’s what I was hoping to hear.
  2. Trying to get as much lined up ahead for our new B coach due in as soon as they can get enough parts together to get it out of the factory and to the dealer. My last several A coaches had rear view cameras. I really depended on them to see someone on my tail or if I was clear to change lanes. My new B has the standard backup camera but no full time rear view. I have installed a couple of the (rear view safety) hard wired cameras on A’s but they had lots of open space to work with. I’m thinking of using one of the wireless cameras and mount it inside flush against the rear window. This would mean no drilled mount holes or little floppy antenna on the rear roof. I’m just concerned that the camera may have a problem looking through the window. Anyone have experience or thoughts about this application. I have emailed the camera folks but having a little trouble getting a response. Thanks, Terry
  3. Thanks a lot. I haven’t seen that before. Looks good. I’ll look it up. Terry
  4. Thanks everyone for your input. I really don’t want to hassle with a cover. Although, I’m little concerned about hail damage. This is my 1st sheet metal coach, except for an older Wanderlodge but it was like a tank. I’m a little south east of Dallas and we only get a couple of hard freeze a year usually with a power outage. I’ll just have to see how this unit is plumed. Hopefully just drain a couple of low lines and some pink stuff. Thanks again and have a safe and happy thanksgiving. Terry
  5. If you don’t winterize, do you store inside or just keep heat on inside? Terry
  6. The hitch mount box sticks out further than I want. While researching B’s I saw a B video review that gave a glimpse of a Ford Transit with what looked like a roof cargo carrier mounted vertically using the factory bike rack mounts. I have not been able to find the video again. Does anyone have any info on this kind of rigging. I would like to to keep the added length to about 12 to 16”. Also, any info on safe load weight for that rear door?
  7. Thinking of putting a cover on 22ft long 10ft high B. Anyone have experience doing this. Can it be done without climbing a ladder? If so, how and what to look for when buying?
  8. The coach is on order due in a couple of weeks. The spec’s say: 600amps of lithium batteries, don’t know if it’s 6x 100 or 3x 200, with battery management + xantrex 3000 watt inverter charger. No generator. Will charge from shore power or under hood alternator generator or roof top solar panels (not sure of solar watts). From what I understand the controller will allow one or combined to charge lithium’s. I’m sure it will take several class room hours for me to learn the control panel. It is the coachmen li3 lithium system if interested can go to Coachmen website look at class B 22c under options. No real details pretty much list components of li3 system. Thanks for the replies Terry. Also, the AC is a 12v pro20 that runs of all 12v sources, vehicle alternator and batteries or house lithium’s.
  9. Herman: Thanks for the fact check, durn it. This is my first try at a forum so keep me in line if I drift off track. This computer stuff is tuff. I had just got used to my Macintosh now I’m stumbling on this iPad. Thanks.
  10. Thanks for your reply’s I’m getting the feeling there’s not a lot of B owners in FMCA, I guess there a little tight on space for family camping. manholt: We are planning a BBQ tour down through your neck of the woods on our maiden voyage. I’m told it’s (“Barn et, darn’it”).
  11. Our Beyond 22c li3 is due shortly. We bought the full lithium power to run air and CPAP machine at night in areas that generator not allowed or might bother other campers. Anyone with this system, does it work as expected or what problems have you experienced.? We are looking forward to some freelance travel.
  12. 1st Class B is due in couple of weeks. It has a wi fi ranger pro. Wife wants to know if it uses a SIM card what card should we use? Should we use a card different from our phone to expand our options for available local service? Hope this question makes sense because it’s above way above my tech pay grade.
  13. Our 1st “B” all info appreciated. The wife and I consider ourselves experienced rv’ers F13895. We are hoping to get our new Beyond 22c li3 in a couple of weeks. This will be our 10th motor home, last being an Itasca Horizon dsl , lots of room. We packed everything but the kitchen sink, only because the coach had one. We wish to take one more trip or two through the lower 48 states before health and age forces me to hang up the keys. First, for you who have experience with the couch across the back that powers down to make a double bed or partial twin beds. We have had older coaches with rear double beds you had to climb on top to make up, don’t want to do that every night. Our thoughts are for some kind of sleeping bags or sacks or something else that can be easily rolled up and stored for the day (we don’t know where). Can anyone share their experience here?
