Try the AAA tour book if you have one for AL.  Also, here is a link to Gadsden City Site.

FYI

Here is a link to the drop hitch I'm looking at.  It is a dual drop so I can put my car and bike rack behind the PC.  The supplier did provide detailed information and will do custom work.  Double check his rating.

Tom,

   We use the AAA RV plus membership.   We do not have any AAA insurance--just their membership.  It cost us about $72 dollars a year and they will change a tire or tow you (up to 100 miles) to a facility for major repairs.  When we had a travel trailer we had a blown tire and they were out in 15 minutes, changed it and we were back on the road.  You also get the added benefit of their trip tiks and travel books/services.  The membership money for us is pece of mind when we travel.  It covers all your vehicles, not just your RV so if you have a flat on a car, or lose battery or whatever, they'll be there to help.  Also gets you three gallons of gas if you run out.  Just don't remind my DW of this one!!

Might gain an inch or two if I removed some of the trim.

Finished garage door opening 10'5".  We sold our 2008 2350 in May and are waiting for our 2551.

I find "BREAK FREE CLP" works great on everything.  It is available at Wal-Mart in the sporting goods department.  It works without attracting dirt and grime.

Here is a link to their website.

I use the Draw-Tite J-Pin Stabilization Pin and Barrel Lockset.  It locks everything together; there is no waggle. Here is a link with good pictures and video.

I took this from the owner's manual for the Sterling All Terrain Roadmaster tow bar.  Also checked the Blackhawk 2 and Falcon it was the same.


"Towing with a motorhome-mounted tow bar which has an upward or downward slope puts undue strain on the entire towing system. For that reason, do not tow if the tow bar is not within the Safe Zone no more than three inches above or below level.  Towing a vehicle with a tow bar that is not within the Safe Zone will result in significant wear and tear on the tow bar and brackets, significant wear and tear on the vehicles suspension and frame, and the eventual failure of the towing system.

To determine if the tow bar is within the Safe Zone first, connect the motorhome and towed vehicle on level ground. Next, measure the distance from the center of the motorhome receiver down to the ground. Then, measure the distance from the center of one of the base pins down to the ground.

Compare these two measurements. To be within the Safe Zone, they cannot be more than three inches apart if the base pin is above or below the motorhome hitch receiver. See Figure 18.  If the tow bar is not within the Safe Zone, you must purchase a hitch accessory to raise or lower the hitch receiver. ROADMASTER has three accessories available Hi-Low Hitches, Hi-Low Drops, and Dual Hitch Receivers which will raise or lower the hitch receiver from two to 10 inches, depending on the model.  Towing with the tow bar more than three inches above or below level will void the ROADMASTER warranty."

Here is the link to the owner's manual.

Here is a link to Hitch Accessories for roadmaster.  There are several manufacturers and many suppliers with a wide range of prices.

Judi,

Still waiting for a delivery date on the PC.  We think another couple of weeks. 
We have our first reservation for the winter in Florida scheduled for 12/31 at W.P. Franklin.  We really enjoy the COE parks.  Hopefully we can get together this winter.

I was wondering what different products you use to line the shelves in the PC.  I have used a product like grip it shelf liner that I bought at bed, bath and beyond but it did not have a smooth top and items would stick to it and pull out the shelf liner when I pulled out an item.  I did not care for this.  Looking for ideas.  Thanks

We mounted a 21" Samsung flat screen TV in our 2008 2350 with no problem.  We did find that there was some movement of the TV on rough roads so I added a shock absorber  to the bottom edge of the TV.    The shock absorber was a wooden dowel inside a piece of foam pipe insulation and this made the bottom of the TV tight against the back board .  We then attached this to the bottom of the TV and it worked out great for us.  We did have to cut access holes in the back board for the hookups.   This is the mount we used

We have friends that wash their motorhome all the time in what us old timers call the quarter car wash (which is now $1.75).  I use the following simple go/no go measurement on the entry, exit and the wash arm.  I am 6 ft and  if I stand flat footed with my arm extended over my head and a yardstick in my hand the tip of the yardstick is around 10'4".  This provides me the necessary go/no go measurement.

Billy;

Every time we return from a trip I hand wash the PC with Blue Coral car wash.  This includes the fiberglass roof.  Also, I make sure any sap, leaves, bird droppings, stains etc are removed and everything else on the roof is clean before I put it back in the garage waiting for our next trip.
