Volkmen..I agree 150% with Jatrax that the step leak is your greatest concern for rot  will start very fast.  Water can come from anywhere  but we all know it runs down hill and therefore ends up on the bottom step.  I would look around the awning anchors to see if there might be some leakage coming in around some lags or where the awning remote wire comes thru the wall.  I would go up from there to see if there is not a separation somewhere on the roof?  Best of luck.

The RVi battery tender has nothing to do with the Invisbrake system, if you run the Invisbrake system long enough without starting the Honda you will have dead battery.   Merely running a hot wire to the battery will keep the battery charged all right but there is nothing to keep the Honda battery from being over charged.  The battery tender keeps over charging from occurring.  Just my 2 cnts.

Folks:

Just read that in 2019 Feightliner will be offering a new front gas engine chassis for RV application (class A).  16,000-19,500 GVW, with a new 6..0L gas engine that will turn out approx. 310 HP with decent torque.   The new engine will get 15% better MPG compared to current RV based engines (Ford).  One must wonder if there might be a new Class C chassis in Feightliners future?

Janey....You do have to be careful these days in that any toad with electric assisted power steering (like the new Jeep Cherokee) must have a constant supply of power to the vehicle to keep pressure on the wheels so that they do not go into a "death wobble" going down the road.  The key does not need to be (in the case of the Jeep) on for the power to be supplied.  With this kind of power supply need it does not take long to drain the battery down.  Wiring diretly is OK but I would hate to over charge the toad battery so there for the need for a product like RVi brake buddy.

janey:

Install a RViBrake tender to the Honda.   Run a wire from the PC's one constant (7 pin connecter) "hot wire" to the RVIBrake tender and then two wires hitch to the Honda battery.   The RVi acts like a regulator and does not allow the battery to be over charged.   Best $50.00 you will spend and a 1/2 hour installation

Sailors35.....On two occasions I attempted to install a Blue Ox trac bar on my 3100.  Both attempts were a disaster!!  Attempting to do the installation myself was one problem and just way to much "stuff" running along the frame rails made it very tough.  If you go the trac bar route have some one do the installation.  The front and rear sway bars are a very easy DIY task compared to the trac bar.  good luck

Luvshack.....I hoping more owners will chime in to help Loveshack with his issue.....I know there is a setting in that thermostat that will prevent the heat strip from coming on with the furnace but it has been to long since I had my PC (his!) to recall what and where the toggle is...I know it does have something to do with the "auto" setting.  Thanks, RAG

Donc13 is on the right track, while your issue may be debris building up that prevents the gate valve from closing completely and shutting the light off.   My bet is your trouble is in the box itself.   A lot of moisture in that area and water and power do not mix well.   I would spray inside the box with electrode cleaner or other spray and work the switch back and forth.   Still do your flush routine for sure, and adjust the handle push rod to make sure enough pressure is being placed on the valve to close it completely.  best of luck

Thanks for the compliment LuvShack!   It makes me feel very good knowing my PC went to a great home with you.   Who knows if Mr. Byrnes and the crew come up with some larger coaches on a chassis other than the E-450 I may come back to the family!

You can/could weigh each side of your coach separately and get the four corner weights.  The issue with most Cat scales that I have seen is they have like a ten inch curb along the sides so you can not easily straddle.  best on luck

Telecom....my 3100 fully loaded was within 900lbs of max.  I like a little more safety zone, the front was very close to max as I recall.  Best of luck.

I hate to say it but I think you are going to be surprised and not pleasantly so, The Cat's will tell the story.

It has been a while (several years) since I have been in the TV business as it pertains tp PC's but as I recall long sheet rock screws merely screw into the side of the Samsung set, no brackets nothing.   While I had the set out I took the opportunity to put additional insulation in.  If your new set is a different brand I would be careful where the screws screw in...best of luck.  RAG
