Hi all and after a 6000 mile trip to the Sw (Arisina,Texas,New Mexico) for three months, I have to say I did get a bit over 10mpg including climbing moutains and  40 plus mph head winds.

In one word I would have to say say I love the V-10!  We climbed some pretty good mountains during or 3 month dry camping expedition with LOTS of power...

We are small people and the corner bed is good and works out good for us.  But larger folks I see could have an issue here.

If the Transit is 4000 less than E450 then it is 2000 lbs less than 3350.
NO THANKS...  as the motorhome would be overweight maybe right off the showroom floor.
Kind of like the Views are today as I was informed about at PC.  No thanks cuz if Iwant to haul rocks home ... I can.   I love my E350.   Just my 2 cents worth..

Just spent the last two weeks at Big Bend. A nice place to visit. Some of the scenery is the best we have seen out here in the Southwest.  Nice campgrounds.  Stayed at all three.  Also spent about one week in primative campgrounds, which are our favorites.
No problem with Mexicans.  Talked to one on a horse, who bought provisions at the camp store.  They are cattlemen farmers, just trying to carve out a living for them and their families.  No problem with border patrols, as didn't see much of them in the park.  maybe twice we seen them on the road. Park ranger said as long as Mexicans behave themselves, we don't bother them.   

Anyway.... our new PC is doing very well.  The 300 watts of solar is keeping the 4 golf cart batteries happy, and never ran out of power.  Most of the campgrounds there don't allow generators... We don't have one anyway!  Even using the inverter to brew coffee doesn't phase the batteries.

Now were off to N. Mexico and Arizona going as far as Quartzite.

Gas miliage so far... After 2200 miles, took almost 220 gallions, and that was bucking 20-30mph winds some days. (seems like the wind is always coming at you when traveling! Smile )

Happy trails,
Denny and Barb

I would check the door switch adjustment to make sure that that the bolt is adjusted long enough to close the switch.  The sw is located on bottom right corner of door.

Hope this helps.

Good Idea... thanks.... (don't think I would hide my side arm in there as I want it more accessable), but for Passports... yes...  Walmart has some neat fireproof safes that are under $20...

 rolling on the floor Funnnny!   

Ron.. as you and maybe other know that Wisconsin is noted for setting up roadblocks and speed traps.....

Well, the other night, when out with friends, and it was their turn to drive, his wife, who doesn't drink much, drove us back into town. But on the way a flashing light behind us, made her pull off and stop.  Officer asked why she was driving slow... Was it because of the darkness and the deer threat?   She said yes, and then let her go.  Apparently he thought she was holding up traffic on a friday nite. But everyone knows the traffic is north bound and we were going south bound.  (she was traveling about 50mph in a 55 posted 2 lane road)   I thought I would share this with you guys as driving too slow in Wisconsin could also meet you up with the local county also.

(this is my third time trying to reply... I think ether me or the computer needs more coffee!   Coffee)

ALL good questions and this is the forum I bet you can get some answers.

This is my first winter with our lovely PC 2350 (can U tell we  Heart Shower love our PC?)  So my only experience is with the Rialta.  Now the Rialta procedure suggests to just blow the lines out with compressed air 35lbs or less. That seemed to work fine for me. Then when one wants to go on a moments notice, "just add water" and go.

I have also used the heater to keep everything cozy inside.  That worked fine also, but I wondered about the cost of long term use. (I live in N Wisc.) Would maybe even have to use two heaters when it gets below zero.

My only concern with the 2350 is the mercenary pump. I would agree no matter what procedure you use, one would have to not forget the pump and run antifreeze thru it.

I am also interested in this topic as we would like to "blast off" in a moments notice, so will be interested in what others have to say..

Thanks Sue and Carol... Guess a bit of planning certainly pays off down there.   Thanks for the info.. Just never talked with anyone down there about accommodations at parks.   This forum is a great place to hang out, for all kinds of camping with our nice PC's. Smile

Camping in Florida in January is like shopping in Time Square the week before Christmas. Not the same as normal, maybe fun but not normal. Wink

Are you saying it is difficult to find open sites without reservations?   Are you also saying it is like shopping on Black Friday?   

We were maybe thinking of Florida instead of the SW for 2014... Maybe not a good idea?

"I don't know if the rubber compound is any different, but I have heard that tires that are in motion (being driven on) will be less susceptible to dry rot.  The reasoning was that the constant flexing prevents the dry rot."

Sounds like what's wrong with my body, no flexing!

 rolling on the floor funny... yes have also heard that... Guess we need to take or PC to work and the store once in awhile?
