« Being "Home" Is Weird & Battery/Generator LOW Tidbit | Main | No Plans, Plans, Different Plans »

Hi Howard,
12 volt is a measure of electrical pressure. Fires caused by it are class
C not A.
BTW, you might save yourself a chunk of change by getting a few quotes from independent body shops to compare to the Ford dealer.

Howard & Linda,

I confess....I have been one of your lurkers from very early-on, very much enjoying your experiences & comments, but not feeling that I had anything to add. We are now in our final preparations & "countdown" to say good-bye to the work-a-day world in late December 2006; "hitting the road" on or before January 2, 2007 with our motorhome & motorcycle. We have started our journal at www.mytripjournal.werewinginit.

You mentioned LOW in Arizona in March, 2007, but the LOW website seems a bit out of date. Do you have the exact dates for it? We would like to attend a LOW event, & already have reservations to be at Butterfield RV Restort in Benson, AZ March 9 - April 9, 2007. How advantageous is it to have our RV parked at the LOW site, rather than riding the motorcycle in each day from Benson?

If you land the workkamp in Benson, perhaps we could connect for a burger during that time.

Thanks for the info.

Gary & Vicki

With regard to the 12-volt, I think the reference is to 12-volt materials burning that make it a Class A. It might start as a Class C, but would escalate to an A once the 12-volt materials became "fuel" for the fire and disconnecting the battery power does not extinguish it. At least that is my understanding. :)

I will definitely be getting a few quotes on the truck (as suggested by a few people), but just as many folks emphasize a quality relationship with their RV dealer, I have one with our Ford guys and we know they will take care of us over the long haul. :)

Hi Gary & Vicki!
Lurkers no more - oh the relief you must feel. :)

As for LOW in Arizona in March 2007, the dates have not yet been set, but they should be announced anytime now.

I would definitely recommend taking your rig to the LOW site and attending the pre-conference so you can get an individualized walk-thru of all systems. If you do not attend the pre-conference, it's not as big a deal to not have your rig there, but it is fun to hang out with the other attendees and show off your rig during "Open House" night. Either way, it will be well worth attending. Hope to see you in Arizona!
