I have a question?  How would changing tires change the actual load rating of the axle itself?  Can you exceed the weight limit of a 9600# rated axle  by changing tires?  Isn't an axle a component that has a weight limit just like springs or tires that have their own weight maximums?

Barry and I went out and took a picture of how ours works.  (login to see the picture)  When you pull the lever toward you a locking tab is released from a slot, at that point I hold it in the released position and then can turn the chair in either direction.  

When you pull on your handle can you see the tab  being pulled away from the slot as shown in the picture?  If it is not then you will not beable to turn your chair.  If you click on the picutre you can see it in greater detail.

If the locking tab is being released from its slot and it still doesn't turn I wonder if a bearing(s) is out of place or rusted out.

What happens when you pull the release handle toward you (when I am doing it from behind the seat the release is under the seat on the left)?  When I pull on ours I can hear a spring working to release the stationary mode and allow me to swivel the chair.  I also make sure the seat is all the way forward in the cab so that it doesn't hit the door when I turn it.

Tell your granddaughter we wish her the best and we'll keep her in our prayers!

So sorry to hear what happened to your granddaughter.  Glad that Adventure Caravan treated you well.

We ended up getting into Delaware Seashore State Park.  The park is just a parking lot but we were in an area that we could do everything we wanted.

We called Phoenix prior to using the chassis saver on our step.  The step is bolted on, then the plywood is laid, then the vinyl flooring.  There would be no way to access the bolt heads and keep the bolts from spinning thus never being able to tighten the bolts again.  That is why we did not remove the step.

Also, do not get  the chassis saver on any moving parts because it does bond metal to metal!

A quart does go along way.  It has the consistency of water but does set up quickly once exposed to air.

PS-Our rust is probably from our many trips to Florida in the winter as well but it's a small price to pay.  I'll take rust over snow any time.  Wink

We replaced that one before we ever used our shower.  On our previous PC (2350) we noticed it when cleaning the drain so as soon as we bought the 2551 it was one of the first things we did.

We use a Lasko model 5409.  It is an oscillating unit and very quiet.  It has a thermostat and a fan only mode.  We use it instead of the furnace and it keeps the RV nice and warm.

Ours was brand new as well and we just gave it to a young couple who we're redoing an old RV.  We actually have two of the original Aero beds.  We use them when we have guest and we need extra sleeping areas.  We like the Aero beds because of the built in motor.  I know the 2012 were Aero brand but not sure about the earlier models.

The inflatable bed we got with our 2012 2551 was an Aero Bed.  It was a full size mattress.  They were on sale at our local discount store for $25.00 a couple of years ago.

Our plans have changed for our upcoming trip and we are now headed to DC and then Delaware/New Jersey.  Looking for suggestions on campgrounds in either Delaware or New Jersey.  We'll be staying at Cherry Hill in College Park and then heading out after Labor Day.

I'm not sure if you have room next to your entry door to mount a fire extinguisher there but this is what we did.

We wanted the fire extinguisher close to the entry door but out of sight and still easy to get at.  Our solution was to store the fire extinguisher between the doorframe and the cabinet in the wing area.  The fire extinguisher is concealed by a piece of matching cherry.  The wood is held in place by friction and is easily removed by a simple flick of the wrist.  The fire extinguisher then becomes easily accessible and ready for use.  (Need to login to see pictures)

I added a fire extinguisher label on the front cover and side of doorframe to help anyone else locate the fire extinguisher.

We did not have the DVD player install and found the sound from the TV to be a little tinny so we added a sound bar above the entry door.  It is not surround sound but it adds good volume and depth of sound.
