    Credit card fraud

    I use Chase it gets compromised at least 1-2 times per year. I have never been responsible for any unauthorized charges so I am OK with their service. On the other hand my daughter had identity stolen and 3x permitted withdrawals from her account AFTER the fraud department was notified. We live...

    rear view camera

    A camera is good but for the situation described I doubt it would be helpful. You would need to have the video scree "on" instead of navigation, even in a window I would expect that generally being aware of your surroundings ans a quick look back would be the most effective way of navigating.

    Damaged running gear

    I wish they were that thick. Maybe on an old Mainship. I had to rebed the struts on my 2000 410 DA and that area is only about 1/2 thick

    410 Sundancer/Express Cruiser and 400 Sundancer/Express Cruiser **Official Thread**

    Question about electrical settings when 410 left unattended. When you park a 410 DA and its not being used do you shut off battery switches or leave them on? I have done both. Last week I left the batteries engaged with shore power on and batteries engaged. All breakers (12v and 120v) were...

    According to my Diesel mechanic CAT now recommends a 200 degree thermostat. I just ran mine for 11 hours straight wit no issues whatsoever. I think its burning slightly cleaner but cant say for certain.

    Does the battery charger also charge the generator battery?

    Update: The battery was fine when I try to start or or engage the preheat the fuel solenoid clicks rapidly like the battery is low and voltage at the gen drops to 5v. I used a jumper cable from the neg battery to the generator frame and it turns over fine. So its definitely a bad ground. Can...

    I thought I needed a shaft for my 410 a few weeks ago, it ended up being a bad coupler. I was quoted about $1800 per shaft.

    410 Sundancer/Express Cruiser and 400 Sundancer/Express Cruiser **Official Thread**

    ttmott so on your 410 the System Monitor would alert when the shower sump was operating? I want to make sure I am understanding correctly. There are 3 bumps under the salon floor one for each shower inside of a sump box and a third in the compartment if those fail or overflow. It is not...
