So if Eddy Current told all,  what was the cause of your 125 RPM power droop?


 It tells and shows you on the screen or you print out a 6 ft long graph where the droop begins it is not quite smart enough to tell you how to fix or stop the droop that is why I asked the brains here and other places.I would like to have 0 droop

Your trailer towing want negates an rv DP'r.
Without question.
an RV salesman might disagree for obvious reasons Smiley

It really sounds like you have already answered your own questions and are leaning toward an existing conversion. Get something basically solid that is close to what you want, and then modify it to suit you exactly. I would drop the DP term though, that is just something RV salesmen created to describe a rear engine RV that is "bus like", but not (Newell's might be an exception).

Actually my wife already has her CDL and I am likely getting mine regardless for larger truck rentals. We are already anticipating that. Should make it easier to say NO to anyone wanting to use it too. :-)

Walter the problem is not how well sealed the conduit is sealed, but rather that the Temp changes it will see in an A/C duct.
A/C is already known for causing a lot of condensation just by the nature of how it works. But running a conduit inside a A/C duct sealed or not is going to cause the conduit to generate condensation inside of it even if it is sealed because your going to be refrigerating it.
At least that is the way I see it.

That would be true if the air inside the conduit had enough moisture, but what if the air was dry, or the conduit had desiccant in it to keep it dry, and then sealed?

If you are using this coach for business purposes you may be subject to commercial requirements including DOT number, CDL for drivers, and all that.  You might want to check with your business lawyer.

An older, high end, professionally built coach will usually be better designed/ engineered.

My '87 has no slides and large water tanks. Makes it easy to overnight in parking lots.

last I talked to Steve, he was out of the walker but was using a cane.

He is someone who will find a way to achieve his goals!

PP, you hit the nail on the head. All the uses you mention and a few more. The towing capacity comes from a machine we are building in Chicago. The smallest model comes in at about 7000 pounds. Add in a car, supplies to support demonstrating the machine on site and the necessary custom trailer and I expect to end up a bit north of 15K pounds. If 15k is all I can come up with I guess I'd dump the car.

The coach will find it's way to trade shows on some days. Other times it will take myself and my grandson who is a roller coaster fanatic to whatever amusement park he has his heart set on. That's the problem with being 300 miles away from him, I kinda spoil him when we do get together. It will also be used for the two of us to get away for weeks at a time. So as I said, all the above. It will very much be a multipurpose vehicle.

And it might house me and my dog when she throws me out for a few nights at a time.

And Oonrahnjay it would never have been a redhead, I am far too cowardly for one of those.

Thanks for the welcome.

.. now it would take a machine to be the homewrecker.

      Much less subsequent heartache than a red-head.
