Heres another idea, Valterra's SewerSolution.  No motor at all.

Ron, I may be thinking about resale value more than most folks.  Weve been RVing for over 30 years by tent, pop-up, and five motorhomes (two PCs).  In addition to eight European countries, Guam, the Caribbean, and Canada, weve travelled in all 50 states, 49 by RV (cant figure a good way to get our PC to Hawaii).  But now with my wife nearing 80, were slowing down and will be selling our beloved PC within a year or two.  Resale value is now a real consideration.

Another note about the cost.  The PC website inventory shows the cost of leveling jacks for a new 3100 as $4335.  Assuming a 25% discount, the cost might be about $3250.  Using the NADA website for the value of my 2011 model 3100, it shows the added value of leveling jacks as $1475.  The cost difference of about $1775 is certainly worth it to me, not only for the ease and speed of leveling, but equally valuable to me is the stability no rock-and-roll when moving around inside or when exiting and entering.  And not just the cost itself, but attracting buyers later: without jacks, you will be excluding an entire block buyers (like me) who wouldnt even consider a motorhome without jacks.  To me, its a no-brainer.

Wondering about the Winegard RFL-332 SensarPro TV Signal Strength Meter.  Has anyone replaced the standard wall plate power supply with this?  Is the only advantage help with finding stations, or does it also additionally boost the signal?  Was the spacer required to fit?  Is it worth $60?  Thanks.

Joseph, I agree that you shouldnt buy expecting to get your money back.  Thats not what I said.  Get the jacks for the ease of leveling and stability.  But getting some of your money back is a plus some people do not buy jacks simply because of the cost.  Getting some of the cost back is a consideration.  And I believe many buyers are like me Id never buy a motorhome without jacks.  That eliminates many buyers when selling.

Get the jacks.  Easy to level, as you know.  No rock-and-roll, as you know.  And you'll get a big chuck of the cost back when you sell.  No good reason to not get them.

A partial solution is to remove one of the two latches from the larger doors. The one latch holds just fine, havent noticed any rattling, and got a nice kiss from my wife.   Hug2

Here's a list from the PC website, but they're all past. Assume it will be updated when new shows are added.   shrug

I made my own fuse bypass for about $3.00.  I tow a Chevy HHR (a great tow car).  I used the instructions on this website: http://fulltime-rv.blogspot.com/2009/06/new-tow-car-installing-bracket-and.html.  Scroll down to the second half of the site.  The bypass switch works great.

I suggested #rightsize since many folks now talk about "right sizing" rather than "going smaller."

How about #rightsize ?

Aimee, I believe this is the picture you mentioned taken in Chicago.  Its under the Begin Route 66 sign (http://www.mytripjournal.com/HistoricRoute66).  It was taken at approximately 81 E Adams St., a half block west of Michigan Avenue and the Art Institute of Chicago.  I suspect not many, if any, other RVs have been there!

We have a 3100 with a slide. Im sure its an option, but I cant imagine not having the slide what a difference when its out! And youll get a lot of that cost back when you sell it. So in the end, the cost is not that much more.   nod

The door between the dining/bedroom areas is of the accordion type, mainly because the passenger side bed is slightly longer than the driver side bed and the door closes at a slight angle. Its never been a problem for us. Were now in Florida for a month, and I close that door when I get up in the mornings

They probably could be replaced. But we always stay at campground with electric, so wouldn't consider the expense of switching out the florescent lights - they work well for us as is.   Smile

Our 2011 3100 has the two fluorescent tubes and a single dome light bulb in it.  They are really great.  The smaller dome light makes a good light in the evening for watching TV.  Easy to switch to the fluorescent bulbs when more light is needed.  Assume they quit making the lights  sad as we really like them a lot.
