Ill have to admit Im puzzled by the aversion to memory foam.  We just spent the month of March at a Florida RV resort and found the memory foam toppers to very comfortable.  The extra height was not a problem for us.  Never experienced them to be hot, even in Florida.  A great solution for us easy and economical.   nod

We didn’t much like our mattresses either.  But finding RV (bunk bed) size is a problem.  I added a 3” memory foam topper which works really great.  Bought this: http://www.overstock.com/Bedding-Bath/Dream-Form-Ventilated-3-inch-Memory-Foam-Mattress-Topper/5309595/product.html?refccid=YIOVTWGIHPZ2UDSJLTBW67I4EU&searchidx=9.  Bought the King Size and cut it in two pieces with an electric knife; goes through it like butter.  Google a video on how to cut memory foam – very easy.  Worked well because the mattresses are not exactly the same length.  Then covered everything with quality mattress pads.

Assume you could completely replace the entire mattress with something like this: http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Sarah-Peyton-Convection-Cooled-10-inch-King-size-Memory-Foam-Mattress/4141898/product.html?refccid=OD76C635UFSKUZKCP24CQ7YIF4&searchidx=3, and cut it in two pieces.

Our first PC (now on our second) was a 2900, no longer made.  We were also told when we bought it that mud flaps could not be added due to the position of one of the tanks.  We added a rock guard, http://www.campingworld.com/shopping/item/ultra-guard-94-w-x-20-h-for-motorhomes/13300, which worked fine.  We did not experience any problems with it picking up small rock as mentioned above.  We did try a bra, but it rubbed the paint bad idea for us.

Warning going to a rally with Kermit there is dangerous.  We ended up our second PC doing that.

We have model 3100 with the usual mud flaps.  We dont have a problem with rock or debris damage to the tow car.  The only problem is driving in rain which, of course, covers the car with a film of dirt.

Enjoy your Adventure Caravans trip.  Weve been on several and always had a great experience.  Going on their Chicago trip this fall and the American Music Trail next year.

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

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.
