RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

Has anyone here rented out the RV they bought from Cruise America or the like through outdoorsy or RV Share? Good idea, bad idea? There have been a few on this thread that have done that and seem to be happy with it and the way it helps pay for their RV. Here is one example They list on RV Share and seem to do very well. They also list on Outdoorsy as do many other owners of Former Rentals,Here is a listing for some of them You can search in your area just put in the search Majestic. On a personal note I have run across a few campers that had rented them thru RV Share and Outdoorsy. One told me that the person that he rented from had 2 Majestics that he rented out. One trip recently,a Chinese couple parked one space away from me and I happened to ask how they liked their Former Rental. I was surprised when they told me that they had rented from a man in their Chinese Community that had 5 of them and rented mostly within that community. They told me that they had reserved months in advance just to get an open spot. I seemed that he was doing very well.

RE: Oil change

Or a 5 qt oil jug cut in half the long way. I had to comeback and maybe answer the original post,after the oil is drained using something like this. height=350 It is a liquid detergent bottle split length ways. Oil goes into it while laying on cross member and exits thru the orange tip into the drain pan, no mess. Then install the Fumoto drain plug as I linked in the previous post,from then on no more messes.

RE: Oil change

I changed out all my drain plugs to a Fumoto Oil drain Plug no more mess. Just pop on the Hose Kit and put into your drain vessel and turn it on. Check out the one that fits your motor,some times they come as a kit. Also Check Their Website to find what you want.

RE: Do propane fire pits put out any heat?

I like the heat and ambiance of a good wood fire when camping. What are your thoughts? Do the propane pits put out a decent amount of heat compared to a modest wood fire? Short answer is no,they are nice to look at and use a lot of propane to get any good heat from them.I have a very good one and take it along when I know that a real fire is prohibited, for the ambiance only. But for the same ambiance and about the same amount of comfort of a real fire I think I will get one of THESE :B

RE: Loose side mirror

If it is a Velvac mirror,which it should be,there is a adjustment at the end of the arm,use a screwdriver to unscrew the cap, under it you will see inside the opening a hex screw I think a 3/8. turn it to tighten the mirror head. height=440

RE: crank up antenna won't crank up

I don't know why anyone would call a Winegard Batwing mediocre. I can pull in more with that sitting in front of my home and get more than 80 stations. I can now with the sensor pro get more than with the house rooftop antenna. The batwing is the best of all RV antenna I would certainly hope so,you are about 10 miles from the transmitters :B While sitting in my driveway at 26 miles from the same transmitters I get 174 width=280 With My Jack Antenna :B:B

RE: Replace bed in 23' Thor Majestic for dinette

Many of the 23 foot class C's have a large storage compartment under the corner bed. The bottom 'deck' of the compartment is not the same as the floor of the rv. So, while the bed could be removed, some serious work would need to be done to recreate a floor that is level with the rest of the rv. Also, it would be difficult to create ingress/egress into the booth and still have seating for 4. This is very true,this is what is under that corner bed. height=440 The floor of the RV is about level with the top of that cooler.

RE: crank up antenna won't crank up

I helped my Son In Law to do just that, he put on the Jack Antenna and to cover the hole left from the crank up antenna you will need This mounting Plate Worked out nicely. If you scroll down to the pictures you will see what it looks like mounted. It gets great reception.

RE: onan 4k gen

I have found that a can or 2 of Seafoam with each fillup will keep everything running well. I also try to run the Onan 4K monthly under load but it has set at times for longer than that and have never had any problems with mine in 10 years with more than 950 hours on it.

RE: Quality of Forest River

What is the steel wool for?Mostly to fill the hole, also to slow the mice chewing. Don't use steel wool as it will rust over time. Use stainless steel wool available at WalMart by the kitchen sponges. I did some research on the forum a few years back and found that mice and rats did chew thru steel wool but that the Copper Mesh stopped them completely,they really don't the taste.

RE: tire pressure class c

I agree but I will add by saying to add 10 psi to the front chart spec and 5psi to the rears. That is ludicrous the very reason of the spec chart is to give you the BEST INFORMATION why use it at all if you choose to ignore it...:S

RE: Buying a Former Rental Class C. How many of us out there?

OnlyHellYes Welcome to the Forum and a future member of the Former Rental Owners Club! I see that MtnBikeMarty has beat me to a recommendation for a inspector,great job Marty for helping other members. I had archived RV Eagle from a previous post in case it may be needed. When you get your Former Rental please come on back and tell us how it all went and your experience and any other tips. Again welcome and good luck on the purchase.
