ParkLiner makes a great product...Im glad to see they are starting to show a presence here and are making the fixes that need to be done. I cant wait to head down there and see where my caravan was built, and get the new batterybox installed.

I look forward to many years of happy adventures!

I'm in total agreement with you Deryk! We just figured out that we will venture down to be there May 12 next year for the same thing.

Hi Deryk, so glad to read that PL will be making things right for you. Check for PM... Want to run something by you not particularly related to this thread. I don't want the 'post police people' calling me on the carpet. Thanks! BL Chiffons

Parkliner Battery Box

Aaron from Parkliner. I too want to welcome you to this forum. So great to have you post and also very encouraging! Like others have shared we really want to see Parkliner do well. Great to see that PL now has a safer place to put the battery. The box looks really nice. We ( my sister and I) met with Cameron back in Sept. We did our options list and made deposit while we were there. Noticed that battery meter is not listed as an option. Would we be able to mail one down and have it installed prior to us picking PL up? It is my understanding that PL is using a different battery since we did our options list. What is the name, number of battery now being used?
Thank you Aaron. Again we want to personally and publicly thank you for your participation in this forum. Betty Lou and Bev (aka 2 sisters)

We have been using Super Start Marine Deep Cycle batteries PN#24DCM and YES you are more than welcome to send us a batt meter if you would like for us to install it. Aaron

Well, its a 75ah battery, which is nice. Gives an extra 25ah more then the Optima...heh 8 more hours of running the furnace. Works for me. I cant wait till next week!

Hey Aaron, what would I need to add an on/off switch so that I could shut the power off from the battery to cut out the phantom drain?

thanks

I think a 7/16" wrench will disconnect the battery cable……….

You could get a batt kill switch like they use in race cars uses a big red key to turn batt power on and off to keep from having to take the top on and off the batt box

Yeah Aaron, thats more along the lines of what I was thinking. Jim's idea is too much work to unscrew the cover twice every weekend that I use it and or want to check the voltage. I am guessing these new batteries are lead acid?

thanks

Yes lead-acid. More user friendly

I put a 50 amp marine waterproof circuit breaker that's rated for switch duty on mine. You would have to size yours to whatever the wire is.

Thanks Jared...now I have an idea!

Yeah would be nice to be able to completely shut it off when not being used...I might have a A/B/both/off switch somewhere but Its a waste since I dont use 1 battery for engine starting from one of my boats...

Let us know how you make out Deryk. I think today was the big day isn't it?

Good luck!

I just got home from a 1039 mile round trip to ParkLiner!

Aaron and his crew took good care of me and my ParkLiner! I have a bunch of photo's to upload...will probably get them up tomorrow. I had a great time down there, got the full tour of the facilities, stayed in my ParkLiner on friday night on their loading dock, the guys worked on mine for about 9 hours on saturday ... more to come about it all


and very important to me, I brought my bathroom scale along and my tongue weight came in at 285lbs! So Im very happy!

Thanks for everything Aaron (including pointing out dragon vaporz)
