  It was George and Judi that posted about the pin.  I don't think the toilet that you have has the same design.  I do not remember these same pins on our 2008 2350.

We called and they are sending a new seat to the house.  Thetford is only a 40 minute drive for us since they are in Ann Arbor, MI so if we have any more problems we'll stop by their office when we are in that area.  Barry put silicone on our pin but it still constantly works loose.  I check it every few days and push it back in.  Hopefully the new seat will be better.  Thanks for the info.  A HELPFUL for you!!!

The right door looks nice, but extremely impractical.  Compounding the problem, with the door open and any drawer or cutting board extended, it blocks access to our fridge and bathroom.  If I were to order my PC today, I would insist on combining the center drawers with the right side behind-the-door drawers, with adjustable dividers to compartmentalize them.  Cheaper for the factory and better for the customer.

    I actually like the galley like it is because we replaced the drawers with a pull out pantry and that door hides the pantry nicely.  Also with the double slide there is no blockage of the aisle or bathroom in the 2551 with that door open.  I think it all depends on what model you have.  If I had larger drawers there I would tend to overload them and then have problems with the glides.  Just my opinion on this one.

We ordered our radio from  We looked around at many places locally and found the same radio here for a better price and free shipping.  Many of them also include the installation gear for free.  On our 2008 we installed it ourselves but had it installed in the 2012.  Crutchfield also has very good customer support when you call them.  We contacted them to make sure the radio we were getting was going to be a good match for the E450.


PS - If you go by Long Key State Park in the Keys we'll be there from Feb 13 - Feb 26.

We did something a little more pricey that gave us the added benefit of an ipod port on the radiio.  We changed our radio out for an after market one that had a USB port and an IPOD port.  Didn't do this for that reason since our 2012 had a port for the IPOD but what I really wanted was a radio with a remote control.  Now I can sit back and change stations while the DH is driving.  Radio is also HD.  Works really nice.

We too are looking to change out our couch but the memory foam one that factory puts in is too deep for me to sit comfortably in.  I also really like having the under couch storage so we visited a company while in FL called Glasstop and are looking at something like the following--
They custom make these to the size you need and can eliminate the arms if you do not want them.  They are really comfortable and will make the seat depth whatever is necessary for your comfort.
We will check with the factory when we get home but I think there are options available.

Welcome to the forum.

I could not find sheets at a reasonable price to fit our 2012 2551 so I bought some twin sheets at J C Penney and did some minor tailoring to make them fit.  If you check out this post you will see what I did to get nice fitting sheets that only cost me $10 a set.  They were on clearance so got them nice and cheap.  I'm sure the flannel sheets will soon go on clearance since they will be bringing out the spring/summer items.  Here is the link,714.msg4873.html#msg4873

Our foot pedal on the Aqua Magic Toilet was sticky.  A few days ago we noticed the bowl was slowly filling with water.  Obviously the blade valve wasn't closing tight and allowing a very slow drip of water into the bowl.  After doing a bit of research we found this to be a common issue and you must lubricate the seal and blade valve every so often.

According to the thetford website they say to "use of a toilet seal lubricant or drain valve lubricant to lubricate the seal. A silicone-based lubricant will work as well."  We followed this advise and used a silicone-based lubricant and now all is well.

It now works like the day we got it.  The foot pedal has a nice smooth operation and is no longer sticky.

Jan and Dick

We have traveled south for years in Dec, Jan, Feb and March from Michigan.  We keep it winterized until we hit warmer temps.
We do not stay in hotels on the way down but most campgrounds from Kentucky down are open.  We usually stop in Kentucky and stay at Renfro Valley for less than 20 a night.  
We use their bathhouse.
I usually have dinner prepared before we leave home and use paper plates on the road.
We do take a jug of water to use in the toilet.  When flushing just pour some of that water in with the flush.

Remember to take some bleach with you so that when you do dewinterize you are prepared.  We usually do this at a full hook up campground somewhere in Georgia.

We had the same problem a few years ago and talked to Kermit while on the road as to how to fix it.  There are two things you need to check:
1.  Make sure the bolt with the jam nut on it on the door fully engages with the button switch.
2.  The wires for the switch had rubbed on the step frame and was shorting out so make sure the wires for the switch are insultated and not shorting.

In case you are on the road as we were we had to pull the fuse by the kick panel on the drivers side door and then fix it when we got home.
By pulling the fuse the door permanently retracted and then we fixed it at home.

We installed a small night table next to our twin bed.  It works great to hold the clock, kleenix, glasses.

We also would like to wish everyone a Very Blessed Christmas and a Happy New Year.

We had to cancel out of our first three days at WP Franklin so there is a site available beginning 12/29 with a departure of 1/1.  It is site 15.

Just some info on the heat strip.

The heat strip is really a coil that runs on AC power and provides 1500 watts or 5600 BTUs of heating power, similar to that of an electric floor heater. Contrary to popular belief, the heat strip puts out as much heat as the kind you plug into an outlet - about 5600 BTUs. The difference is that the air conditioner has a higher volume blower and the air does not feel real hot but it is suppose to be 5600 BTUs.  The A/C blower blows air over the element and out the ducts, providing heat to the RV. It really cannot heat up the RV in very cold conditions as others have said but once the RV is at a desired temperature it will maintain that heat.

With that said we do use it in the mornings to keep the chill out.  But we also have a small electric ceramic heater to use in the main living area when watching TV.  Less noise and due to the lower volume blower feels much warmer.
