Pre-Rally and Rally Agenda document

We've done a major update of the Technical Presentations document

Final versions of all rally documents will be included in your printed rally packets in your rally bags. Many rally documents we feel could be helpful while you are on-site will be added to the Mobile Rally Website.

Jim,

The level up and the slide out technical operation is good. Also how to operate in case of a automatic failure is great.

The manual operation of the awning is a must.

Dexter axle maintenance is always good.

Thanks Nick. I have a few other items to add to the list, but if you can think of anything else that would be nice to cover, please reply with those ideas. Same goes for anyone reading this. We can't add everything but everything given to us will be considered.

Agree as this is one that I have yet to get an invitation out to (likely Dicor).

Hi Evans - hope you get the crops out soon enough to join us this year :)

Say - your topic is good and let's plan to ask Lippert about that at the LevelUp session. Note too that the 3 LCI sessions will likely be done off-site / semi-hands-on at one of their Goshen shops. Details still being worked on with them.

What about asking Norcold to do a Gas Absorption Refrigerator presentation with a focus on usage and maintenance?

What about asking Furrion to speak about their gas range with a focus on: lighting burner and setting / maintaining temperature? And then also, on their backup cameras with a focus on: Installation and model differences.

A “How to” on adding additional cooling fans to a gas absorption fridge seems to come up a lot on the forum. And is on my to do list.

Hi Jamie,

I think this sort of thing would be outside of what a refer mfr would do.

To all prospective rally attendees: Have you done this mod and would consider doing a 30 minute How-To presentation?

Jim,
A session on RV Electrical and what the Landmarks come with (Transfer Switch) and how to add Hard Wired Surge Protection. Also, how the Multi-Plex electric distribution works and how to add/change connections; How the Power Control System works that was installed in our Landmark. The other topics, especially roof maintenance and repairs covers what I would be looking for. Thanks, Phil

How about something on satellite hook ups and service available ?
How about something on internet and such for full timers on the road ?
How about available mail service available for full timers?

Along with Jamie's idea, maybe someone will have done the compressor upgrade by then.

Jim,
Will #'s 18 and 25 be talking about fresh water pump solutions and/or ways to make them quieter? If not, can we add?

I'd like to suggest a presentation on inverters/converters, options and installs, for those of us that don't have a residential refrigerator.
I'm primarily interested in what I would do to add a power source while dry docking, being at a rest area etc.
Enough to power a television, fan or microwave etc.
Thanks, I'm not sure if all that will be covered in the residential refrigerator presentation.

I know this is in the tools section, but it might be useful to have a short presentation on converters, their electrical paths, diagnosing problems, and the relationship of the resettable DC circuit breaker controlling its output to the batteries. (I am on my third converter in my LM and had to actually read the documentation and chat with Progressive Service Techs regarding diagnosing the converter to get mine replaced).

Jim, what about Sonny Dismuke with RV Improvement Systems? (Liberty Rider, Joy Rider, Never Fail Bushings, etc.)

Maybe something on rv furniture -- how to clean and maintain the surfaces, trouble shoot electronics on the recliners, etc.

Mike - No, I have not booked Sonny to present or vend, nor has he reached out to me.

Mike - Dan Mayer and I will present our AC and DC User Guides. We won't take a super deep dive into them but more like an orientation. That said, I think we can manage an overview of power from a path perspective.

I would like to see a presentation on roof sealing and repairs. Perhaps have a vendor on site that can do minor repairs. I have had a tug-o-war with a couple of stubborn tree branches that won.

Alan - we "plan" to have Dicor do a presentation on roof maintenance. Just waiting on a confirmation from them. We won't have any onsite repair vendors to service roofs. Sorry.
