Questions on my sunseeker

After the walk thru, I have questions and believe that the forum is better them the dealership in answering.

If the battery switch is off does the batteries still charge when shore power is connected? The placement of the shore power connection is really bad for getting into the area below it. Can't do anything about that just seems to be a design fault. The air bags, what is a good pressure for those? The unit slides on the driveway (sloped) when coming in or leaving. Would take a long time to where out the metal there but need to protect. Last item funny. Steering wheel is not straight when front wheels are. Asked the dealer where to take and they said Ford. Did that and when arrived they said we can't do it, machine broke and to go to another place. Friday apt.

1 no it won't charge. 2 you could pump up till it doesn't drag, 100psi max. 3 when they align the front end, have caster set between 5 and 5.5 degrees positive caster. We all have had it done this way. Really helps stabilizing driving down the road.

Had the same issue with hitch dragging on driveway slope. Purchased from Amazon 130.00 solved my issue

All of the above. Also try laying a couple 2x12 boards lengthwise in front of the rear wheels as you pull in or out. Get them as many feet long as you think you'll need. As you drive over them it hopefully will lift the rear overhang up enough.

Can't tell from the picture, what did you attach the wheels to?

Re: hitting bottom: I have the same problem. I try to drive out of my driveway slightly diagonally, it helps in my case. If I didn't have trees on both sides, I'd drive even more diagonally (over the sidewalk), that would solve the problem even when loaded up.

Surely there must be enough others reading along here that remember the cars from the 70’s, when it was common practice to “jack up” the rear end.

My buddy with his Plymouth Duster did it along with countless others. I couldn’t afford a “Muscle car” back then so I didn’t do it. But I still don’t even know WHY people did it. Guess it was the “cool” factor.

Is this a viable solution to keeping the rear from scraping?

I’m betting “no” huh?

I can see it now, rolling out of bed because of the jacked-up rear-end, haha!
