Wow, keelhauler.  If you were here, Id give you a big kiss; well at least firm handshake.  The switch was on (from trying to start the engine).  After turning it off, the compass/thermometer in the rearview mirror, the rearview camera, and the step, all starting working correctly!  I did give you a helpful vote.  Great.   ThumbsUp

Well, that doesnt really address my question about the Advance Auto AutoCraft Silver Battery and why the specs say Auxiliary Battery; Requires special deep cycle battery when it is advertised as an exact replacement for a Ford E450 (Advance Auto and AutoZone the only stores in our little town).

It may a moot point now as the battery finally took a charge.  But now a new problem.  After disconnecting the battery, cleaning the terminals, reconnecting and charging, the review camera monitor stays on even with the ignition turned off.  The compass and thermometer in the rearview mirror also stay on.  Very weird.  Suggestions from anyone?

I mean the Ford truck battery, not the two deep cycle coach batteries.

I may have to replace my truck battery.  It was totally dead, and Im trying to charge it.  In looking for a replacement (Advance Auto and AutoZone the only stores in our little town), I found at Advance Auto: AutoCraft Silver Battery, Group Size 65, 750 CCA, $131.99, good reviews.  The specs say Auxiliary Battery; Requires special deep cycle battery.  My question is: is the original battery I have now considered a deep cycle battery?  Should I have the charger setting on Deep Cycle?

I get about 9 mpg towing a Chevy HHR. Eked out 10 mpg, not towing, flat terrain.  Rarely go over 55 mph.

Buy the levelers. They are very convenient and add greatly to comfort.  Plus you get a big chuck of the cost back when you sell.  So ultimately, theyre not all that expensive
7  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Temperature in your computer taskbar on: February 07, 2015, 11:28:40 am
Although I have an outdoor thermometer, a quick look at the taskbar (see pic) is cool to see the current temp and just a mouse click for complete weather for my current location plus multiple locations with a program called Weatherbug.

See under the heading Weather in the taskbar here: http://www.pcworld.com/article/2466721/three-easy-ways-to-get-the-weather-on-your-desktop.html. It explains how to Weatherbug without installing other unwanted programs.

Get Weatherbug here: http://weatherbug.downloadhelp.net/?lp=adwords&tg=us&kw=Weatherbug&mt=e&ad=64400446159&pl=&ds=s&gclid=CjwKEAiAjNemBRCgp_vymcvVym0SJACRp_UZslw2ci6FfZ-YDW-wA_mXgetfmmxAVeu7Ubuy0P6jpBoCRoPw_wcB

The taskbar shows the current temp all the time and simple mouse click for the complete weather for my current location plus customized multiple locations.

The sofa in our 2011 model 3100 sofa opens with the push of a button and has the air bed.  Weve only used the air bed a few times, and it worked just fine, quite comfortable.  The sofa is very comfortable my wife uses it to watch TV while I use the recliner.  The great thing about this bed is the storage below which is terrific, see pic.  Dont know what wed do without it.

Generally get about 8-9 give or take.  Have squeezed out 10, flat terrain, not towing on our 3100.

Well, we have a 3100, and it works great for us. Full bath in the back, sofa, dinette, room for a recliner and only one slide. Wife sleeps-in in the morning while I close the door and do my thing with coffee, TV and internet. Drives and tows great. Sofa bed for the few guest we have. Works well for a month at a Florida resort in the spring. Traded a 2900 (similar to a 2910D; didn't care for the split bath and no dinette) for it; wouldnt go back.  nod

The rearview mirror is pretty much useless as a mirror, but ours has a compass and outdoor thermometer.  So it's pretty useful.  Wouldn't want to be without it.   nod

We started with a 2900 (no longer made and shorter than the 2910D) then traded for the 3100 when it first came out.  The main reason for us was the bath.  Didnt care for the split bath but love the single bath in the back.  The compromise was the beds which are not twin size but bunk width only longer.  And, of course, we really like the dinette and room for a recliner.   nod
