Bob,

Really nice job.  We think it is going to come in very handy--especially when eating lunch on the road.  Also a great place to keep drinks at night or remote controls.

I had the same problem on our 2008 model and it turned out to be a simple adjustment issue.   Basically the adjustment procedure make one end of the awning roller larger or smaller so that both ends of the awning reach the end at the same time.

There are adjustment directions in the manual but if that does not work  you can call their customer support number and get additional directions on how to expand the adjustment process.  It sounds confusing at first but once you go through the adjustment procedure it makes sense.

Ron,

If you click on the picture you will see a larger image.  

I had actually looked for a good looking vent plug but could not find one in the local stores around here.  Since we are leaving for a 3 1/2 month stay in Florida shortly I was not going to take the chance and do an online ordering during this time of year.  

What I used was a furniture glide in brushed nickel.  It was excatcly 7/8 of an inch and virtually flat so fit the hole nicely.  It will also pull out if and when I find something that looks as good.  

My DW said we should put in a central vacuum plug and pretend it is for our central vacuum system--but since we don't have any carpeting we didn't think that would be believable.

Besides--I like Tom Hanlon's suggestion that it is an eject button to get me going in the morning.

I'm glad I'm laughing about this an not crying.

Thanks, the helpful rating eases my pain.  I'm sure my DSM is permanent and nonrevocable especially when the motor home is in the wife's name.

To all the DIY Fixers

This DSM (Dumb S--- Marker) became necessary when I drilled a 7/8 inch hole in the middle of a board (the one on the end of the passenger side bed) that ended up not being required.  There is no need or reason to go into the details of why the hole was drilled.  Let's just say it was done in error.

This marker serves two purposes.  First, to remind me to do a little more research and pay closer attention to details.  Second, prove to my Very Smart DW that I can fix errors to her satisfaction.  Click on picture to see my fix.  Hopefully this will be worth a couple of HELPFUL ratings.

If you can't laugh at yourself who can you laugh at.

When we had the 2008 2350 we did not have them put the holes in the floor but added our own legs from a personal table that we had.  Worked great.  With the new 2012 2551 we have the spider legs and they also work very nice (no holes in the floor).  I built this little table to be used as a place to hold our drinks, snacks or whatever when we do not have the larger table out.  While traveling we never get the larger table out so this should be handy to hold whatever while having lunch on the road.  We have one at home and use it all the time.

The table slides under the couch and is basically locked in place so I do not have to worry about it flying around if I stop fast.  It will also easily fit behind the drivers seat.

Just finished another project before our migration.  A sofa table for a quick lunch on the road or at the campsite or a side table when we are lounging in the evening.  Click on image for a larger picture.

Tom,

    My wife loves the sink cover.  It does not have to remain on the sink --only when she uses it.  She stores it in the linen cabinet standing on the cut out side to stabilize it or it also fits very nicely just behind the toilet.  She puts it on the sink when she uses it and takes it off when she's done.  She likes it because she has a place to put her hair dryer, curling iron, combs & brushes,  makeup--whatever.  Life is very good in the 2551.

I have used this website several times for cables and they are very good.  They ship fast, good quality and have a great price.  Here is a link to the website for HDMI cables.

I ran across these at the local Bed, Bath and Beyond store for $2.99 and thought they would be great for hanging my fishing rods in the back storage area.

They hold up to 2 pounds and are the command damage free hanging for cords.  They work great for my fishing rods as pictured here.

Ron,

When we had the 2350 (corner bed) I actually sewed in an angle on the fitted sheet and it was nice and tight.  I did not have to add the straps to it.  The other thing I did was sewed in hospital corners on the top sheet and attached it to the bottom sheet so we always had nicely fitted sheets.
