Tech Talk / Re: coach heater flapper door?
« Last post by mrd341 on Today at 04:18:58 PM »
after much searching, i found the approximately 12"x 7" flapper door within the ductwork in between the floor vent that is between the two front seats (directly behind the doghouse) and the rear coach heater blower directly under the folding table behind the front passenger seat! i was able to get my hand in the duct and flip it open and closed so it is working properly, now i can try installing this nightmare of a blower motor blower! thanks

Hi Please forgive me - NEWBIE ALERT - joined the forum in 2012 but donít use them (reasons too boring).
Just wanted to mention I have recently installed a 500AH Elite lithium system in our 5th wheel that has 6 solar panels so if anyone was considering doing the same and wants to read the story, hereís a link if Iím allowed to put it here?!  Sorry if Iím breaking any rules, or off-topic, I just hope it might be of help to people!  http://www.kimartanddesign.com/Daves/JourneyToLithium.htm
(And Iím certainly no expert and canít claim to know all about it!)

Trailers & Fifthwheels / Re: Truck Towing Capacity?
« Last post by longhaul on Today at 04:07:05 PM »
ip076 makes a good point especially with the F350 SRW truck.

 Look on the drivers side door post at the trucks certification sticker. That sticker (regardless of the dealers invoice)  tells you what the trucks GVWR is and more important what RAWR number from the factory. The RAWR will be carrying all the weight in the bed.
 GVWR is for state licensing issues if any or DOT licensing issues as required or insurance issues/etc.

 Ford F350 srw has over a dozen GVWR numbers.   They can give a 10000 gvwr or 11500 gvwr for the same identical truck.

 The F350 srw also has a 6340 rawr.....6730 rawr...and a 7230 rawr packages. The lower rawr packages come with lower rated 17" tires and wheels. Of course the higher rawr packages comes with 18" and 20" tires and wheels
 
    JMO but Ford marketing all those different gvwr and rawr package on the F350 srw is very confusing to new folks  getting into the trailer tow world.

General Discussion / Re: Does anyone dislike Oxygenics shower head?

Just out of curiosity, which model are you using? I have been looking to upgrade the OEM head, just checked amazon, there are 3-4 different hand held models available.

Is the oxygenics a water saver/conserver as well?

Sounds like you have a bad ground at the taillight or front turn signal/parking light.  With the taillight off it's filament in the bulb is at 0 volts and provides a partial ground to the turn signal so it flashes normally.  With the headlights on it raises the bad ground point to 12 volts, no current flows through the bulb and the flasher indicates the fault by staying on.
