General Discussion / Re: Propane tank filling problem
« Last post by DonTom on November 24, 2017, 05:30:43 PM »
Some places have asked us all to get out, but it was ok to leave the dogs in.
I always turn off all propane appliances and generator during propane refill as precaution. Most places (I've been to) ask me to anyway so it's become a habit.
I can see why they want it all turned off, after I saw that big cloud or Propane blow in the guys face at the LHC Chevron gas station.

The tv and microwave only work on 120v power. That means shore or genset, unless the coach is equipped with an inverter to supply them when no external power is available.

Youíll want to be careful about using campground, or any public, wifi for banking on the road.

Definitely!  They're not secure and anyone knowledgeable can "see" what you do.  Banking and tasks using a credit card should be done on your own system for a more secure connection.  We have a Verizon Pantech modem that we connect to a Cradlepoint WiPipe router.  Within the motorhome the modem transmits the signal and we both use it with our laptops.  In other words we have our own little local area network that we both access.

vs the wheels for the 225/70/19.5 which is 7-7.5"

I've not seen any 225/70R19.5 tire that comes on a wheel that wide. The largest rating I've seen for that tire size is a 6.75 wheel width, and 6.0 is the usual. Can you give an example of a rig that has a skinny 225/70 tire like that on a 7+" wheel? Are you sure you aren't thinking of a 245/70? They are typically on 7" or 7.75" wheels.

And no, it is not safe to run narrower or wider wheels than the tire is spec'ed for.  They may work well enough in normal use, but they are quite likely to pop loose at the tire bead when high lateral stress is applied, like an emergency sharp swerve or a skid.

We sometimes stay at Yreka but it's in that dicey area Margi mentioned.  It has an RV at each exit.

General Discussion / Re: Width of Coachmen Leprechaun 319 with slides extended
« Last post by Gary RV_Wizard on November 24, 2017, 05:17:15 PM »
Few, if any, Class C's like the Leprechaun have opposing 3 ft slides, so my guess is lower than Larry's.  The 319MB has slides on just one side, so an additional 2 ft. will allow them to open.  Maybe not enough to walk around, though, if adjacent to a wall. If you need working space, make it at least 4 ft extra.

Be aware that the 102" width does not include side mirrors or awnings either - it's the base body width only.

 Purchased a class C Coachmen.  Love it.  I haven't taken it on a trip yet as I have only had it for a couple of days.  The walk-through was not really a walk through.  Yes - we walked through and talked about everything on this bad boy, but when it comes time to actually DO these things.....Well.  I can put out the slides, hook up the water, turn on the generator (in my driveway).  I am sure that I can hook up electrical and sewer at a campground.   So My questions is this....How do I get power to the TV or the Microwave.  I have used the coach batteries to move the slides and awning, etc. But I have no power to the coach.  I know that I am missing something. There has got to be a switch somewhere......
