No problem on the body parts I lose my head all the time haha,,,, ok I guess were going to have to go with the heat following some crazy path.. just bothers me that the door area you mentioned you could not or barely touch it,,, sure it was not the sun, that time of the year should have not heated that area that much.  maybe someone will else comment  luck

Sorry, I'm confused,( when you said left arm)  but just couple of points,,,  assume your talking about the pass side,,,  is the muffler on that side?? (minds in storage)  maybe due to speed you were driving you just got extra heat coming up on that side.. also the way that the undercarriage vents with all those nooks and crannies, it could again have been the speed you were going.. double check your battery tray,, if the batteries are messed up they will heat up,,   you didn't leave the water heater on did you?/  not sure if to that temp though..any just some points to check  good luck  let us know if you figure out what it was

Ron,,, good point,, I do not get much heat from mine,,, I also thought the cowling mainly covered the transmission/enging area anyway,, not sure have not taken mine off yet,  maybe will get some pics soon,,, when I start playing with my scan ii will take some pics  I already made a mount to put it on top of the satellite radio,, hand made haha,,, but not planning on doing the project for awhile,,, as you know Beast is in storage and I hate doing projects at the storage yard,, I'm always afraid something will break or probably I will break something and be stuck.

My cost or what previous owner paid
     I think I'm reading this statement correct

     Install Safe T steering control   
     silver steering stabilizer 408.00
     Safe t bracket kit   52.00                 
install Koni shocks front and rear
 supersteer rear trac bar    525.49

    Our unit does handle like a dream...

according to receipt    Parts  1564.99 labor  983.28    ouch

BTW  they put in jacks  on the unit also,,,, they are different from the Phoenix jacks and have an auto leveling system, that's why I think? they cost more Series 625     TOTAL cost 6317.00   again ouch
 I have not used them,,, but have been playing with them a little till I get comfortable with their workings,

Outstanding,,, and wow,,, as I have stated before,,, these babies are complicated, did you see all those wires laying up by the dash,, unreal Ron would love to put that mess back together haha.. if I ever buy a new one (fingers crossed someday)  will make sure to stay up in Indiana for a couple of days to get debugged...   that's not a criticism, any new Rv will have problems,,,and I have read way to many responses of new owners and the service they get from Phoenix and that's why people love this company so much.

  Question,,, anyone that has been RVing a long time,,, did you notice the copper joints, anyone know why??  Do all the mfers do that and why?  Just curious.

    I agree with Ron would love to see them put the walls and the caps on...

Good post
129  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Rubber Floor Mat on: October 01, 2013, 09:43:30 am
those would work in the front cab for pass/driver, good ideal,, but not sure if I would want to use black,, the cheap mats from Walmart are brown,,,,,  in the bathroom I used the foam/rubber then  the black mat cut to size, over it,,, worked great ,, as mentioned I used the rubber/foam mat for the storage compartment, remember it's about 1/3inch thick , in hall same rubber/foam but have a rug runner over it,,, it's really nice and comfy... nice to stand walk on... the foam/rubber is very cheap per yard $6,,, easy to cut.... another good point to using it, you over measure a tad and can press it in to the sides it's very snug where it meets the walls,,,,,,,,, how ever probably would not stand up to walking on,, that's why I put a rug cover on it...    the one in the bathroom fits exactly..   your right regarding those black mats easy to cut     I take the foam/rubber mats out when were at home easy to clean with soap and water,,

Okay,, Ron does not want to tear up his carpet haha don't blame him,,,, we have talked about the mats for the pass/driver previously.. and yes they look great,  but jeepers they cost a lot,,  I'm still going to stik to my Walmart specials which I cut to fit the contours of the floor, I think they were 12 bucks,,, guess I'm too cheap haha

good topic
   Have read some of the fixes. No one has told us what the mat would cost.    For that flat area, next to the engine cowling I would suggest some of that rubber mat I used in the hallway and bathroom,,,,   I going to wait and see what Ron does since it already sounds like he is going to pull up his carpet and do something.. want to know how hard/easy pulling up the carpet is, before I attempt to do something,   BTW, we keep a large dog bed in that area its about 4 inches thick, that's where our puppy dog rides when we are driving, he usually stays there the whole time so the heat coming up does not seem to bother him

tks for the replies,, one great thing about the forum,,, Ask if you don't know,,, especially if you have some time to do something,,, you learn from others booboos...between all my DIYing can not tell you how many times have made a booboo, but that's part of the process,   but you learn from your mistakes.... the other thing, it's fun doing thing yourself,   and would never be able to figure out how much money have saved over the years.

tks Bob,,,, seems pretty straight forward,,, I think (maybe) I might install Scan Gauge in the cup area,, I already have my satellite radio mounted on the holders,,, I want to run the cable along the top of the cowling to hide it a little... also I'm not worried about reading the gauge when driving too much,,, I'm usually the navigator so I can read it all the time haha... will post later if I do it that way... if not someone had mentioned the steering wheel mount,, so I am looking at both hook-ups and deciding..

    One question,,,, you say wires and tubes,,,, are there some of these when you take the cowling off?

again tks

   Look at the pic on page 1, I think you can pretty well ballpark where the door post is in alignment with the cap... that pic Ron showed us really helps... would bet that all the vans are cut pretty close to the same no matter what model
135  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Another sani con tank flushing question on: September 28, 2013, 11:30:35 am
    I previously had read Barry's post on TP, we now use the same.  AS far as chemicals for the tank,,,  we do stay too long in any one place 3/4 days at most. I only use Calgon water softener in the tank,,, I mix about 4oz gallon of water, pour about half into sinks,shower, rest into toilet. the tanks and pipes become very slippery.. it is suppose to coat the walls of the pipes and tanks where nothing sticks... I have no problem dumping smell... I usually sanitize the fresh tanks twice a year,,( we travel usually spring and fall)   while doing this I also put some weak bleach mixture down all the pipes and toilet. flush everything, fill up the tanks water,  add more calgon to the system and away we go.
If you want I can find the actual posting on the Calgaon,,, was from some guy who had been RVing for 20+years.
