So, after much discussion in our house, what dictates the tire pressure?  Tire manufacturer, chassis manufacturer or motorhome designer?

 shrug

Seems to me it varies depending on the load and which model is on the chassis and where the weight is distributed with each build.  But then, I'm only a girl.  

It is up to the chassis manufacture to set the pay load based on a number of things like wheels, axles, brakes, fame etc. It is up to the motorhome maker to stay within these limits. The tire manufacture puts the maxmium air pressure for the tires. This is why a four wheel weight is important.

"But then, I'm only a girl". If i was trying to be funny, I would say something about the amount of air given off by the different sexes, but I would never say something like that. Oh, no.

You implied it, enough for me to remember your name! nod rolling on the floor

Air comes from various places don't forget!

How about one of the plastic folding steps? They wouldn't be as soft as an ottoman, but they come in 9" and 12" heights and a variety of colors. When traveling, just fold and store. The 12" gives me enough height to wash the windshield.

I want soft,  ThankYou

I have that same basket at home and was trying to figure out if I could mount it securely in the PC. We have several baskets on racks at the house that hold my Magic Bullet, food chopper, vitamins, etc. They really help keep the counter clear. I'm hoping to get at least one one basket for the road. Did you just screw the rod holders into the wall?

Yes we did, he added the rubber pieces to pad it from rattling on the wall, the basket tried to slide back and forth so we fitted black O rings to stop that, works like a charm.

Trying to figure out our Home Entertainment system in the 2551.  I found a receptacle for the iPod in the cabinet but I'll be darned if I can make it work.  I tried calling Samsung but never got to talk to anybody. 

Anybody know how to play an iPod.  It says to push Port and chose A ipod.  That's as far as I can get. 

OK I took a break and went back out and tackled this project.  Wow what a system.  I now know how to use the iPod on the dock with display on the TV.  Got the remote to be able to change songs and fast forward too.  It can be used with the surround sound which I thought was in the back speakers but it isn't.  All surround sound is in the main room.  Still learning.  Well, that's with exception of the subwoofer in the bedroom area.

Anybody have a good idea for a small foot rest or ottoman in the PC for the couch?

Update on our noise. We took it to the local Ford "big truck" shop and they kept it two days before telling us "what noise?" It's a truck. Trucks make noise. John drove down, took them for a test drive, waited till she started singing, then said THAT noise. OH, THAT noise; OK we'll look at it; we may call Ford to see if this is normal for the V10 engine.

The PC has been there another two days and we hope to have an answer by noon today but I have a feeling they won't have fixed anything. We told them we need it to camp in tonight and asked if it would be fixed. Their answer; well, it will be ready to pick up either way... implying a good chance there will be no fix. I LOVE car dealer repair shops. We should have cancelled our local appointments back in May and camped out at the Ford dealer in Indiana to wait out the week until they could look at it.

We are going back through Elkhart in July so we may book an appointment with the Ford dealer there and see if they can quiet her down a bit. At least they know what the engine is SUPPOSED to sound like. What noise, indeed.

I feel your pain.

Congrats on yours too,Barb! We'll keep an eye out for you on the road,Leslie is a retired RN also.

That's cool, wish we could meet up.  We might take ours for a night at Wikiva maybe next week.  Looking for a place with full hook ups  just for a test night.  Any suggestions?  Central Florida?

Yes, the electric one, as nice as it was on the Winnebago, wouldn't slope like you describe.  How did you decide where to place the brackets?
