I too took early retirement (age 58) from a large communication company. What made it possible was the health insurance that the company continued to pay till Medacare kicked in, and now supplies a low rate supplement. Without the health care thingy, I would not have retired at the early age. Also... Retirement is NOT over rated. The wife and I are busier now than when retired, and have to sometimes say the word NO to some peoples activities.   As Christians, we do enjoy medical Missions trips to countries bringing the Gospel to many and other volunteer activities.

So after saying all this, our other passion is camping mostly dry camping from 1 feb to 1 may in Ariz/NM.  Summer is spent camping in many short trips throughout the area and to our family camp.

Yes, I do hope that the price of diesel fuel goes down for many reasons such as those with Sprinters and also our commodities at the grocery stores.  Sadly, today our gas is selling at $3.63 and diesel at $4.19.  Quite a difference!

Yes, Yes, Yes.... the wait was long, but the fruits were worth it... We went thru the wait earlier this spring/summer, and YES it was worth the wait. I, WE, have not been so satisfied with such a unit as our PC.  Heart Shower

AND the gang over there at PC are right there to help in any issue.....  Now, where can you get service like this now days? 

So YES.. you girls made the right choice indeed. Enjoy!
172  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: The new Xantrex Pro Inverter - how does it work? on: October 08, 2012, 04:30:22 pm
I'll try.... I'll try and answer your questions since I am in electronics..

First of all, the inverter is connected only to some of the AC receptacles in your coach... not all of them (at least this is the way my 2012 2350 is wired.

The inverter can be turned ON or OFF using the push button switch behind the drivers seat.

When on shore AC power, the inverter is not being used and can be shut OFF.

When not on shore AC power, with the inverter turned on, it will provide you with about 1800 watts of power... That is enuf to run a toaster OR, (not AND) coffee maker.

 (Remember 1800 watts is a lot of power drain from your house batteries with these types of appliances. So if dry camping, keep that in mind. If your just going to drive the motor home again once your coffee is brewed and toast toasted, then not to be concerned about battery drain.)

Hope this helps...

Ha ha Ron... you will get there soon enuf!!!  But this Pass is really great for us as we do mostly dry camping at NF campgrounds... They are great if this is your style of camping. (won't go into detail because I believe most know what I am saying).

So far with my 2012 2350, I have added the Blue Ox Trax Bar, Bilstein Shocks (Front only) and of course a "front end alignment".

I was told by the alignment place that my "ball joints" is my biggest handling problem.  Being a new vehicle, he said they are very tight, and causing "oversteering".  He was correct, as when I got a few thousand miles on it, they did loosen up somewhat, (especially coming home once on the Minnesota rough I90). But I feel they are still not normal as the steering still appears abnormally tight. So will just put more miles on it and see it that improves. 

I like the Bilstein shocks so well on the front, that I am going to get a set now for the rear. They seem to improve the ride and reduce the swaying...

As far as the anti-sway bar goes.... I don't think it is worth the money for third party replacement. Took a micrometer on my stock ones and compared that to the rather expensive third party ones, and wasn't much difference in diameter...  Remember Ford now puts these bars on the later year vehicles... Was not true earlier. I think good shocks such as the Bilstein are more effective. Read the testimonials on them.

Yes you did!  We ordered our 2350 this year and took possession in June... coming from a Rialta, we are very very pleased with our unit.... You will get yours just in time to make the trek south with us hey?   (We however don't go south till about Feb and then our destination is Arizona/NM)>

Finished mounting two 100 watt and one 80 watt panels on the new rig. Kind of stressful whenever one has to drill holes in the roof of a new machine, but thanks to Kermit for sending me the roof drawing, it was quite easy to find the studs (Studfinder BTW did work up there.).  Used white RV caulk and 1/4" lag bolts.

BTW... if you follow the #6 black and red wire, you can see where I fished it into the motorhome. On the 2350 this worked pretty slick. Just remember to seal the exit location of the poop pipe once you get inside.   nod
178  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Shoe Closet (my version) on: September 07, 2012, 09:50:15 am
Thanks to all who inspired me by your version of a shoe closet. Here is my version... Slightly too large, but it is easily removed thanks to the base fastened by two 1/2" wing nuts.  I built a platform that is screwed to the wall 2x2's (found inside the kick panel), so I didn't have to drill holes in the floor to mount it.

The last photo shows storage in the back for two service eat trays and a laptop desk.

ok gotcha... you raised your 450 seat 3" cuz it was too low for ya to be confortable!  I would like to lower mine about that much.....  Measuring other vehicles is a good idea...

Your a pretty tall feller and so am wondering why your built up the floor and pedals.  I am only 5'6" and I built mine up so I could have the seat back farther so steering wheel wasn't in my face. Also I don't have power seats and I feel the seat is a bit high.  So I built up the floor with a couple of pieces of carpet under the mat.  You must have felt the floor was a bit low also to build it up 3"??
