      Ed & Sandy Draghi No you do not. You should have 6 batteries, and you should be able to easily go overnight. If I am dry camping I run my generator about 2 hours in the AM and 2 hours in the  PM. Hide 1 Reply

    Our Allegro Open Road step is amiss. It extended upon arrival but I noticed it did not stay extended. The bottom step was ‘loose’ and would slide back towards retract state. Obviously a bit dangerous since the very bottom isn’t extended and locked. Any ...  more

    Think that thought process was was put into people's mind to minimize individuals forgetting and overfilling the tank. Since the drain hose is not sealed in-place, there is no way to cause excessive back pressure. The drain into the grey tank is gravity feed.

    We have a 2015 allegro red. When we need to fill grey tank we run the washer with grey closed. A fellow RVer told us not to do this because of back pressure.
    Anyone ever heard this?
    Thoughts?

      Barb & Mike Moseler We run ours washer with the grey valve closed to flush the sewer hose. We have never had a problem unless I forget to open it before it fills the tank ?.

      Buddy Odom The wife can do three loads of wash before the gray tank has to be emptied. Makes it easy to do the washing while going to the next stop. Have to run gen. for the power which is no problem. Hide 2 Replies

        Eric and June Doesn't the manufacturer say not to use the washer when RV is in motion? I don't have my manual with me to check.

        Buddy Odom It may Eric so that they would be clear of any liability. If we are going to use ours while moving between stops I empty my gray tank so I am sure there is room for the water.

      Doug 'n Linda We are purchasing a used 2016 Bus and were getting it inspected by an NRVIA inspector yesterday. Ran across this in the owner’s manual: “NOTE: The 1 1⁄2” gray water valve at gray tank waste gate must be fully open when operating the washer/ dryer.” more Hide 1 Reply

        Buddy Odom My manual reads the same but that is a CMB statement I think. The tanks are vented and as long as you pay attention to the water level no problem. Or at least I haven't had any.

    Has anyone isolated their refrigerators on it's own inverter/battery back up? We are thinking about doing this and adding a couple of solar panels.

        TED MILLER The safe t plus makes a big difference on gas coaches, makes a small improvement in a RED since you already have the improved handling of the diesel.do what the post above says re tire pressures and air bags

      KatB We had the system installed a year after we purchased our coach. It has worked wonderfully across the windy states of Kansas and South Dakota. It also helps when larger vehicles pass. Cost plusinstallation was around $750.

      TumbleLees (Bill & Debbie) We had it installed in our Phaeton two years ago at Bay Diesel in Red Bay. It’s like driving s new vehicle. Makes a world of difference-the best improvement we’ve made.

      ckuptz The pricing is usually issued no later than June and the website would typically be updated by now.  Maybe the tariffs are messing up the timing.

      ckuptz I just checked the Tiffin RV Network forums and someone uploaded the 2019 pricing for the 40IH earlier today.  The pricing sheet is dated 07/06/18.  Perhaps pricing for the other models is available somewhere as well.

    • Tommy & Susan Hathcock
      ckuptz The base MSRP price increased from $321,900 in August 2017 to $329,304.  There was little to no change in the pricing of most of the listed options.

      BoA36 It may depend on where you are. My in-motion will only pick up the Dish western arc, so if you are in the northeast you will not get anything. And of course obstructions will interfere.
