General Discussion / Re: Lithium Battery Upgrade

Hello FANDJ I didn't plan to run my AC, I can give it a try and see how long it operates. I would imagine not for more than a couple hours before it depletes the batteries. I was more wanting to be able to use the microwave and coffee pot etc. When I go to MacDill AFB in Tampa you get a spot for a couple weeks then you move into overflow camping with no hook ups for a week then you get a spot with hookups for a couple weeks. Its this shuffle some of us have to play.  There are some who get a spot for 6 months with hookups but I am not staying there that long so I play the shuffle.  I also being on the base it has some perks that you don't get everywhere. Plus it gets me close to friends in St.Petersburg where I use to live.

Very Respectfully

We played the dance at Patrick for years. Only one time at MacDill for the big RV show. You are correct in saying that there are bennies staying behind a "gated" facility. Haven't been back since the big FamCamp addition project.

The only issue I have is when I get the monitor just right the next time I get up to go to the back of the coach it never fails I "whack" my head very hard on the screen!  That is life!

Greetings all!   We just downsized to a 2008 2551 from our 40'DP Horizon.  To be honest, from what I had heard and read, I was expecting the fit, finish, and construction to be much better than our 2004 Itasca.  I realize I'm the 4th owner, and I discount that use, but (again to be honest) I was a bit underwhealmed.  But it was almost exactly what I had been looking for a year, and so I bought it 1500 miles away with only a few pictures.  It was a PC after all, so how bad can it be?  Not that bad, I'm happy with my purchase and got it for a steal.  I don't have the original owners manual and can't find a parts list to order the missing/damaged pieces/parts.  Of course I printed up the missing vendor manuals that I needed from the interwebs, but I still lack plumbing and electrical schematics.  I did all the maintenance on the DP and plan to do all coach related work on this one, but leave the chassis work to Ford.  I have retired 3 times now and still have a part time job.  My bones say quit, but my mind is still writing those 30-something checks.  More honeydo's and grampa hacks than paper can handle, but I press on because I can hop in my PC and leave to the pastoral trout streams.  Can't really do that in a 40'er.  I look forward to plagiarizing all your great ideas - and as payment I'll post pictures and some tricks/hints. 

TLDR: Glad to be here.  I am very handy and travel mostly solo.  :)(:
