Thanks for the comments.  I'll look up the demco tow bar and base plate.

Found a good deal on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler that I couldn't refuse.  Now have to get tow bar, base plate, wiring and brake.  Any recommendations for the tow bar?  I've noticed several good comments for the Blue Ox.  Hopefully, I'll be able to do the installation myself.

When things are dark, compassion and humor help brighten the way.  I feel all comments were meant to lighten the mood.  Hope you have many, many years of enjoyment in this lifestyle we call PC.

After reading everyone's comments, I decided to replace the shocks and sway (anti sway for the purist) on my 2350.  It took me a full day to replace the stock shocks with Bilstein HD shocks front and back only because I kept having to "find" tools I just had.  Then I replaced the front and back sway bars with Hellwig anti sway bars, and that took me one day for the rear bar and a couple hours for the front bar.  It was a fairly simple installation except for a couple times when I over thought what I was doing.  After installing the front shocks, the test drive didn't show significant difference except for a stiffer ride.  The new rear shocks made a significant difference.  Then the test drive with the new rear sway bar was everything everyone has commented on in this post.  The front sway bar topped off a very satisfactory installation and test drive.  The difference is remarkable!  We're leaving next Monday on a long trip east, and I can't wait to experince the difference on the open road.  I did all the labor myself, and the total cost for these upgrades was $790.70.  The best price I found for the Bilstein HD shocks was through for $82.55 each with no shopping cost or tax.  The Hellwig front sway bar was $199.71, the rear $204.95 and shipping was $55.84 through  All parts were received within 5 days of my order.  I'll get the steering stabilizer after this trip. I'm considering lowering the front tires to 70 psi from the recommended 75 to soften the ride a little.  Anybody have any thought about whether this is a good or bad idea?  Thanks for all your comments on the benefits of these upgrades that truly inspired me to undertake this project.

Ron, I was looking closely at my 2350 today, and concluded that you were right.  The rack and ladder are not needed, and I will delete them from any future pc's I purchase.

With the tv on, press the menu button on the remote and see if source can be changed to dvd.

rannan5050, mine works like yours--aux 2 and sound only from front speakers for tv.  The rear speakers only seem to work when I play a dvd with surround sound.  The base boost speaker is under the bed on our model, and it was so loud I had to remove it.

I have a fear of closing the door and remembering the keys are still inside just as the door clicks shut/locked.  So I have a key hidden inside one of the storage bins, plus I have replaced the keyed bin locks with combination locks.

Agree on the carpet.  I got tired of cleaning ours, so I took it out and installed laminate flooring.  Lot easier to keep clean.

Now we have nice motor homes that we can park in beautiful places and watch those races anytime we want...

I searched around on the internet a couple years ago to find out the best way to connect the dish and found an articleon  how someone redid the amplifier to accomodate satellite.  It got too confusing, so I simply ran a new cable up the front inside wall by drilling a hole in the floor and fishing the cable up to the shelf.  Then I unscrewed the shelf and ran the cable into the cabinet where the amplifier is.  I ran the other end of the cable under the bottom of the pc back to where I wanted the outside connection to be, drilled a hole in the floor under the bed and a hole to the ouside.  I then mounted a cable connection box (found at camping world) on the outside.  I built a simple stand for the salvaged (free) directv dish.  When I connect to satellite, I remove the tv cable from the amplifier, connect it to the directv receiver along with the cable from the dish, find the signal (usually takes about 5 minutes), and sit back and marvel at how bad all the programs are.  On my previous 2007 pc, I used the telephone connection box for the outside cable connection.

We leave the fridge on auto from the day before we leave (I installed a 30amp service panel close to where I park at home) until we get back.  While driving, it runs on propane.  We turn it off during fueling because you never know where those fumes go or accumulate, and one spark can ruin your whole day.

Thanks for your comments.  Jeep is one of the vehicles I'm considering, and your info helps.  My wife keeps pushing for the Jeep, too.  No pressure there...

Tom, what you describe is what I expected the lights to do, so after your post I turned the lights on and waited longer this time--and they went off just as you said.  I wasn't patient enough before thinking they should go off when the door was closed.  What I get for thinking...  And, yes, I too remember drive-in movies with fondness.  Thanks for your comments.

Sometime this year I plan on buying a vehicle to tow behind my pc.  I've noticed a lot of references to Jeep Liberty as toads in this forum.  I know there are a lot of variables and personal preferences, but I would be interested in hearing why so many have chosen the Jeep.
