Nice job Joey!  We have talked about doing the same thing if we ever have a problem with ours

We carry three 10's and a 4.  We just replaced a 25' because the center liner collapsed and was blocking off the flow of water.  We buy ours at Walmart.  A raccoon will chew through a hose no matter what you pay for it just looking for fresh water.  This happened to us at Fort Desoto.

We carry ours in a covered plastic container with other fresh water accessories.  We always sanitize a new hose and then again at the end of camping season when we sanitize everything including the container they are stored in.  We also store all of our hoses with the two ends connected.  We were camping with family when one of the party connected their hose to the water inlet, turned on the water and ants started pouring out.  After inspecting their hose we saw many ants crawling around inside.

Here is a link to what we did two years ago,2080.msg16401.html#msg16401

We are very pleased with these.  They have held solid with no air leaks in the two years.

Here are the dimensions for our sofa table.  The exact size can be modified to meet your requirements.

10" x 8 1/2" x 3/4
Radius on four corners is 1"
Top edge has 1/2" round over
I screwed the legs (center legs on screw holes) to the base with two screws.  The first screw is located 1 3/4" from the back of the base and 1 3/16" from the side of the base.  The other screw is located 2 3/4" from the back of the base and 1 3/16" from the side of the base.

14" x 12 1/4" x 1"
Radius on front corners is 3"
Radius on rear corners is 2"
Top edge has 1/2" round over

Mounting Cleat
1 1/2" x 1" x 8 1/4"
I screwed the cleats to the legs with two screws each.  One is 1' from the back of the cleat and the other is 2' from the back of the cleat.

Cleat is located 3 3/8" from the back of the top.  I screwed the two cleats to the top with two screws each.  One is 3 1/2" from the back of the cleat and the other is 6' from the back of the cleat.

2 5/8" x 3/4" x approximately 22"
Overall length of legs are determined by thickness of Base, top and mounting cleat.
Side edges 1/4" round over

Attached is a picture of the table showing the underside with mounting cleats.

No, this was not a jackknife sofa.  It was the one that had the air bed in it.  I would check with Phoenix to find out if the carpet was laid over the linoleum.  I know when we visited the factory many, many years ago (2003) we were impressed that they lined the whole floor with linoleum.  I do not know if they continued that practice through the years.

We were the ones that built the table.  Here is the original post,732.msg5027.html#msg5027

Not sure what kind of sofa you have in your 2006.  We have since replaced the sofa that is seen on the original post.  When we added the drawer to our new sofa we made sure there was enough room for the table to slide under.  The base of our table is 3/4 inch.

Corner to corner is 40 inches.  From the center of the door to the opposite wall is 26 inches.  Hope this helps!

We are camping in our 2012 2551 so we measured our shower pan.  It measures like a 32 x 32 Neo Hex right drain as shown on this website

Our door opening measures 16.5 inches.  The walls measure slightly less than the shower pan due to the construction.

We have AARP the Hartford for insurance that offers some motorhome assistance.  Chose AARP because it was the least expensive and they have been very good on customer service.  We also have a AAA membership that we have used on three occasions for tire assistance while traveling and for maps and tour books.  We use Good Sam and Passport America for camping discounts.  Passport America has saved us a small fortune when traveling.  One night at a passport park pays for a year membership.

Yes you can!  We have a 2551 (2012)- E450 and have the swivel driver seat.  It is wonderful.  Here is a link to a picture of our setup.;topic=1178.0;attach=1714;image

We have a 2012 model and as long as the seats are the same it turns easily--no more difficult then turning the passenger seat.

We did change our 2012 2551 (E450) sofa that was the air mattress type but we did not opt for a power one.

Welcome to the group.  We will be in Fort Myers Beach at the Red Coconut from 3/1 to 3/21 on the beach side.  If you are in the area and interested in seeing a 2551--stop over.  There usually are 2 or 3 PCs in the campground during March.  Or if you are near WP Franklin or Koreshan State Park we will be there.  Send us an email.

We have replaced many of our cabinet latches wth these magnetic catches from lowes.

We would never use these on drawers but for the smaller doors they have performed great with over 6,000 miles on road conditions that included some very rough gravel roads. You can actually get different strengths and different colors depending on the manufacturer.

I have used a whole house filter system on the PC for many years.  Here is an inexpensive one  from Home Depot.

I use a carbon filter similar to the ones pictured below.

I use a simple water pressure regulator that is available at most RV stores.

Here is a link to the type I use:
