well....going into my third year of fulltime rv living...what a learning curve!!

 Onan generater finally died,,,got a Chicago 3800 watt sitting on my rack on the back of the Ford Rally with the bicycles.   runs REAL good,,doesn't use a lot of gas...a little noisy but only crank it up a few hours a day to generate hair dryer, microwave and keeps the house battery charged. 

still happy that I get to live in Southern California, have my OWN place (had to endure the roommate situation for toooo long), it has some minor inconveniences but still worth the daily moving the, rig off the beach to a parking lot that tolerates us rvers to park overnite.  as long as we leave early (beach parking opens at 6:00 a.m.), they don't hassle us.


wel, if anyone if visiting Huntington Beach California, just look for the tan Ford Ralley with a rack of bicycles and a big noisey generator on the back...happy RVing!! xoxxo

Any RV parts store, Ace hardware or walmart and get a HEAVY GAUGE rv rated, 3 prong contractor/rv 30 amp extention cord (these have a built in "fuse" that will blow if overloaded... like in running a blow dryer or iron. Somewhere on the right rear of the class c is usually the land power hook up for 30 amp. Your class c will/should have either a converter or inverter that will "convert" 110 volts ac to the dc that runs most of your lights, fridge, AC, etc. Buy some adapters for house, 30 amp and 50 amp reducer while you're at it for your extension cord; either rv type or contractor grade and then just plug it into the house current. Note that most house current is 20 amp which is fine EXCEPT when you crank up your airconditioning which pulls over 20 plus amps until after it gets started. sometimes this blows a house/ extenion cord fuse, sometimes not. DO NOT expectd to run airconditioning, microwave, tv and a hair curler all at once; remember you are in a camper, not a Condo and use electricity well... turn something off, etc.
Caution: BE SURE and sanitize all water lines and tanks with 10% bleach/water solution and get your propane system check by a certified rv tech BEFORE use!! Some good stuff in our Forums on what to do/look for in a classic rv too.
