Re: Washer/Dryer drain plumbing

Does anyone know if Safari plumbed the washer/dryer drain so it dumps in the grey tank, or does it bypass the tank and drain into the sewer drain pipe. I can't see the plumbing. When using the washer/dryer we always keep the grey dump open. I've also read some coach manufacturers plumb the bathroom...

Re: Brake Fluid Reservoir

Mel,

Just so you are aware, they do still make the master cylinders with remote for our coaches. If you saved your remote reservoir and the lines leading from the remote, you could convert back if you want to...

Map40,

If you could please post the part numbers for your brake caliper and pads, and what ever else you may have replaced.

Re: Best residential-style refrigerator?

Brian, I'm glad that things didn't turn into a disaster! If your refrigerator is not too heavily damaged, JC Refrigeration (Amish owners), has a very efficient 12v compressor retrofit units that can be installed in your refrigerator, essentially converting your absorption unit into a compressor-hous...

Re: What did you do to your Safari this week?

What brand and model inverter do you have? The cycle might be a search mode, which is designed to save on power when the inverter is idle. If it's an older inverter, it might a primitive version of the search mode, or maybe something else is causing the load to cycle. What solar charge controller do...

Re: New Shocks my experience

Brett, As far as I know, we have only one member who has tried the EVO99s on the front axle of his VelvetRide coach. He reported that it has good sway control, but that it rides a tad harsher over the high frequency bumps. My guess would be that they must have added additional damping on compression...

Re: New Shocks my experience

I have been keeping an eye on Koni part numbers on this and other sites and seems that for my 96 Geti 3740 with VelvetRide no bags I need 88-1641SP3 in the front, however early posts show my rear as 88-1458 "SP2" and now I see it as 88-1458 "SP1" on this forum. Is there a difference or just a corre...

Re: What did you do to your Safari this week?

ProCycle, This is why I am a big proponent of using a shunt based battery meter/monitor. One not only will have an accurate way to know exactly what state of charge their battery bank is, but they also can use that same meter to hunt down parasitic drains. They can also learn how much power each app...
