John, youíre talking about a battery switch on the coach itself right?

The charger idea is working well. I was able to get on the road and am camped near where the part will arrive on Tuesday. Should be in business in short order after that, seems like a pretty easy replacement.

Also, to close it out the Li Op warning hasnít come back, without me ever trying to reset it. I think that must have been due to the low DC voltage.

What all will they do if an American is caught in Canada illegally ?     They just let all the draft dodgers in and that was a felony wasn't it?
But none of the immigrants to Canada to avoid service was ever convicted of any crime before going to Canada as a matter of Conscience  As I remember the time the phrase was America love it or leave it. They made a choice that affected the rest of their lives. I applaud their courage and conviction. It is hard to go against the majority for a belief.

I don't know what year it became mandatory for the brake lights to come on with the exhaust brake.  my 2013 may have been the first - just not sure.  It really is annoying because folks think you are riding your brakes all the way down the pass.

It's normal for any coach.   You have huge sail, and a passing truck or bus is pushing a great wave of air out to either side.  That wave first hits the rear and pushes it away, thus causing the coach front to move in the opposite direction.  The driver reacts by counter-steering, which happens just about the time the bow wave moves further up the side of the coach. The driver is now over-steering, so he corrects again, usually just as the bow wave reaches the front of the coach and pushes it away. That requires a final correction.

A track bar will help somewhat because part of the movement is the leaf springs shifting sideways under that pressure. A larger (stiffer) antiroll (antisway) bar also  helps. Nothing is going to stop it, though. The heavier the coach is, the less it reacts to the pressure of the bow wave, but adding 10,000 lbs to your coach probably isn't practical.   Buying a 40,000 lb diesel pusher does a pretty fare job of solving the problem, though.  ;)

Just wanted to add Riverview RV park in Louisiana, just across the river from Natchez, Mississippi to the list

Asolutely great place to see the river. Specially if the balloon fest is going on in Natchez

All chargers are grounded, per the National Electrical Code (NEC).  That means to the RV chassis when installed in an RV.   Likewise, as a primary power source, all inverters bond their neutral to their ground when inverting.   The problem occurs if the inverter continue to bond the output circuit neutral and ground while passing shore power through. That's a no-no in an RV.

So often, a different viewpoint is all that is needed!  Thanks for reporting back and give the DW a big thank you.
Tech Talk / rear trac bar
« Last post by Deano2002 on October 14, 2018, 07:34:27 PM »
after a nearly 1500 mile road trip I would really like to get my coach handling up to snuf. I would like to hear if the rear trac bar makes a significant difference. I noticed that when a semi comes along side me, it pulls me to it then, when it gets to the front of my coach it wants to push me away which I assume is normal for an old coach like this. The front end was aligned not long ago along with new shocks and sway arm bushings
