  good info again,,, we are hauling furniture so not worried about  the weight so much,,,when I pick up the furniture in Dallas I am going to have to back the trailer or take it off the hitch.. figure I can un-hitch and man handle the trailer ( I hope).. other wise should not be to much backing up... :)dread the 2500 miles to Portland but will be worth it to finally get rid of this junk haha thanks again  and like I said earlier were heading to Alaska after that so sort of killing two birds  d(&&** kids hehe

Good points Ron,    We also had a RT 210 and have had no problem with storage, was the main reason we bought the 2350 was the additional room,,, we have the dinette and I store our bikes under it.. http://rvbicycleproject.blogspot.com/     I think if anything I would go with a hitch carrier, lots of post on those. Were going back to Alaska next Spring and I'm not worried at all about storage.

LEVLER REPORT- went to the storage to exercise the Beast.  the storage area is perfectly sloped and ideal to use the levelers. (rear area down,,)  So following  manual, hit the auto level and in about 2 minutes had perfectly level RV,, WOW,, what a DA I have been for not using them.  Guess I will need to get some boards now.. I also like the Alarm button to let you know that you have in the front to let you know there extended... need one for the antenna haha... was playing with the TV a month or two ago nearly drove back into the storage with it up,,,, yeah I know,,, I usually put a tag up but was to lazy to get it out since I was just messing around

Anyway thanks all you guys for selling me on using them  I am believer now

 Very good comment,, I like simple green also.. on the bleach solution you can use small patch of rag dipped in the bleach solution,, damp not wet,, rub the caulk line, make sure it's damp... let dry, then just sun dry, rinse   your right about the finish,,, how ever the clear coats are pretty tough and at the % should not be a problem, you will take your wax off though

9  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2100 - No slide - Question on: July 09, 2014, 11:23:17 am
Depending upon your type of travel,,, I don't like the slides. We also have the table instead of couch/bed.  Also like shorter is better,,, had a roadtrek 210 loved it, but not quiet big enough,,, we found the 2350 used,,, and really driving not that much difference, but the extra room is great, have no problem with our stuff.. I actually have two bikes under the table ( there's a post if interested).... we travel as a couple and big puppy dog. No plans on traveling with kids or such.  So if fits us perfect... hated giving up that 4/5 mpg, but the extra room was worth it. Would like to look at 2100 but have not had the chance yet. BTW purchased our Cruiser in Seattle,,, we live in Houston

I am always interested in the post re levelers,,, previous owner had them installed on our 2350,, over $4k ouch,,, I've never used them.. keep using the blocks.   I think I need to go to a local parking lot (concrete) and practice,, For some reason I'm scared to death they will get stuck.... I did extend them once at the storage yard,  Again maybe going out and playing with them a little will give me the confidence to use them

I saw this on RV travel .com    Since this is one of our biggest concerns in traveling, might want to give it a view

Be sure to watch our upcoming live webcast of RV Talk Live this Saturday, June 28, 9 a.m. Pacific (noon Eastern). RV Travel editor Chuck Woodbury discusses RV tires and RV tire safety issues with his guest Roger Marble, an authority on the subject. Roger blogs at RVtireSafety.com. You can watch the program on the RV Travel Channel. And if you missed last Saturday's webcast about RV electricity, watch it in the archives here

I looked at some of the previous post re towing.   Were planning a trip in which I need to haul about 1000lbs of the kids stuff up to Oregon. My plan is to rent a small cargo trailer (U-Haul,etc) for a one way.  The small one weighs 850 empty,, plus @1000lbs cargo +/- a few lbs,  added length @11ft.   Were in a 2350.  Since many of the parks and gas stops etc are pull through should have no problem driving and getting around. Trailer will have no brakes.  Do I need a trailer ball for the hitch?   Is the trailer light hook-up already set up on the back of the PC?  Any other suggestions will be appreciated. BTW am a rookie when it comes to towing.  If suggested will go find an empty parking lot and practice backing up if you think best.  Hoping that want be to necessary. tks

    I also had heck posting pics on this forum,,, you have to really go step by step to post. Matter of fact if I wanted to post something now I would have to go back to the instructions to do it..  I have done a lot of RV projects,,, Since I usually did a lot of steps and pictures I posted them on a blog and then put link on the forum,,, was easier and also did not take a lot of space on the forum page. this is the blogger I used
