There is no secrete to doing it. It is a pita, and I wouldn't bother unless you are having a problem with it.

Re: Would the SMB Classic be a class "B" or "C"?

I think they say it in this line.
"Type B Motorhomes are built using automotive manufactured van or panel-truck shells." That's pretty clear to me. It's right on their consumer site....

Re: Used Class B that can pull a small car?

It's not just what weight you can tow, but also the GCWR. You will have to weigh the fully loaded RV, the toad and dolly, to get this number.
The GCWR is the maximum allowable weight of the tow...

Re: Howdy

Chinook made quality RV's but be aware they are built on a truck chassis (cut-a-way) so they are a Class C. Sellers like to advertise them as Class B's to promote sales.

Re: second thoughts

Gerry, just remember fans circulate air they do not cool, so your RV will never get cooler than the outside temp. and in hot weather no where even close. Mans skin sweats, and fans evaporate the...

Re: Replacement seats for Roadtrek

Someone years ago, on RV.net, replaced theirs with Recaro's. You might do a search, older posts, in the B forum. Nice, but not cheap.

Re: Roadtrek is making a ProMaster model... Zion

Re: Advancing Alvar

With an On Demand pump from Flo-Jet, or Surflo you shouldn't get any hammering, at least I don't.
I replaced my water pump in 2003 with a Flojet, and I'm sure tech has improved since then.
I can...

Re: C B Radio on PW Excel.

Not trying to talk you out of a CB radio, but there's really not much on the channels except the truckers, and most of that stuff is pretty "colorful". Seems CB's have gone the way of the dinosaur....

Re: '94 Dodge Roadtrek Popular lug nut torque specs

Even though my Goodyear dealer hand torques the lug nuts, I always recheck them. I'm not worried so much about the rims as I am about warping a rotor. I would never accept driving on a wheel...

Re: The hunt is over

I don't think you can add coolant to the AC, and if it's low then it has a leak, and would cost more to repair than its worth. Hope it's something simple, like a breaker, or switch.

Re: A/C Assistance

I stand my what I stated, and cooling a Class B is a lot harder than cooling a Class C, or Diesel pusher.
