Was at the southern end of the parkway just a week ago after the govern. opened up again, and traffic was real bad.  In a MH it was not the right place to be. Only spend one day driving from Cherokee to Marysville and stayed overnite  there..

For what it's worth, I replaced mine with Bilstein HD shocks and I think it was a waste of money.  Didn't notice any handling improvements.

 Very good Ron, but only problem is when we have to pay $25+ for a campground we think it's byway robbery!    pulling hair out

Staying in rest area's requires a bit of common sense for sure, just as it does with campgrounds. We only didn't feel safe at one rest area near Chicago and did move down the road to a truck stop.  But have to say we did stay at some county parks that were pretty rowdy.  We have been asked by the rest area custodian more times than we can remember, if we were going to stay the night.  Many times they would tell us how safe their place is with maybe being manned 24/7 or the state patrol checking frequently.  South Dakota still prohibits staying more than a few hours, but we have not been awaken ever there, and we just returned from there last month.  We take our Q frmy the truckers.  Rest areas have come a long way. Iowa for example has WiFi at most with dump station. Some even have a little hiking trail.  We are now poised to visit ky, Tenn, ark,and Missouri starting Friday for a few weeks.  With the gov shut down, were just going to do rest areas while traveling and dispersed camping in the Nat forest's.

Ron,we don't use a tow and as you we make good use of the states rest areas.

Yes, agree with my southern neighbor.  My next 2350 will probably be on a f450 chassis.

I feel that this years gas mileage is better with over ten k on the rig.
161  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Check my understanding of battery voltage status on: September 02, 2013, 07:58:33 pm
What we did was order our 2350 without gen.  Then had another battery box mounted in its place.  Then with 300 watts of solar we dry camp for a week without running batteries below 12.4.  I consider we use a lot of watts cuz my ham radio's and TVs/DVD's take a lot.

Just another food for thought? 
BTW coffee is ether perked on stove or via coffee maker just depending on battery condition which is Dependant on old Sol.

My 2350 didn't handle too well when I got it new.  Out of pocket to get it closer to a sports car didn't' cost that much. Most was covered by Ford.  Most bang for the buck was proper alignment to a plus camber. (see my posts on this). BTW the later year Fords do now come with heavier suspension components which means steering stabilizer and shocks may be OK as-is.  (See Fords website on E-350/450).

Thanks Berry, knew that blue box would be a good distraction.  rolling on the floor

1st picture  is a dirty clothes hamper located under the bed. A small door was added to facilitate access to the space under the bed. Clothes bag then fixed to the perimeter of the door frame.

2nd pic is of more additional storage that can be used, just by hinging part of the bed frame floor, gaining access to that area.  Also helps for future fixing issues that might pop up in the future.

New steering stabilizer.  Fords original was bad.  Unequal resistance in/out. Was under warranty.  Made a huge difference in handling along with the alignment issue mentioned below.
