Beast is in storage,,, but I looked at some photos,, looks like the door is panel is framed around the panel,,, in other words unless you take out one of the sides no way it's coming apart...note I'm looking at pictures...

 what all are you planning on doing BTW,   let us know and do pics

Jampodd?
    I would just go to Discount,, couple of guys already have no problem,,, of course they do not do alignments,  lots of arguments on tire rotations,, read the post's.... I was a big believer in tire rotation,, but after reading so much on them, I now go with no rotation.. but again each to his own,,, it seems evident from the discussions, that depending on the size of your unit,,,  longer more modifications to the frames, shorter less or none, stabilizing systems mounted?? and so forth, etc have a huge impact on alignment and so forth,,

Bob.... once you do some more on those valve extensions,, post in a separate topic,, this is sort of interesting,, I just have not seen that problem mentioned that much including leaks ( a little bit),,,, maybe go ahead and post now and see if we get some discussion going,,, have not had any problems with mind and just wondering if the expense is worth it...

 I want to first thank a bunch of you guys for help on this project. After reading about the Scan Gauge II, I wanted to get one for the Beast. I queried a bunch of you guys regarding mounting the unit (Ron, Skip, Bob), thanks for you help.

Again I went ahead and did a blog.   The Scan Gauge II is mounted in the cup holder area of our Cruiser.

  I had to replace the coach battery last week. Went ahead and did my standard Blog write up. ( I know it's just easier and I always try to do a lot of pics) if your interested.    http://batteryproject.blogspot.com/

  The Beast was at her storage unit, so was a pain the rear, but got her done. Battery cables were a pain with all the extra hook-ups, found some damage on the battery mount (pics) but overall every thing fairly normal for that specific fix up.   Nice and warm down here in Houston, everyone have a great holiday.

Just saw this on the news  double check your tires

Michelin said the LTX M/S tires in a 225/75/16 size were designed for “commercial light trucks, full-sized heavy duty vans, small recreational vehicles and some large pickup trucks.”

Ford used the tires as original equipment on the 2010 through 2013 models of its E-Series vans, a Ford spokeswoman, 2010 to 2013.

They are being recalled and replaced..

  Research this on the forum I swear I saw someone had installed a home made carrier.  Are maybe just google it,, bet you will find something,
I know I saw it somewhere,

  Since the weight is minimal,, I think you could get some large plastic tie downs to attach it the frame.  Lowes Home Depot has those large ones, two feet, should work find,, Those big ties are pretty heavy duty and as long you attach firmly, should be no problem with them getting worn out,, you could always put 2/3 at each spot for insurance,

I quickly found these two post   sure there are more
