I hope you din't get one of those locks that goes around both plugs to lock them together. They only work on the electric cords that are perminatly attached to the RV not the cords that are removable like ours. The thief just takes the protector and the electric cord together.  Cry

 A surge protectors job is to sacrifice itself in the event of a power surge. Once it does that is no good anymore and must be repaired or replaced. Therefore you need it installed where you can get to it to unwire it and bypass the split in the wires in order to have electrical power again, until you can get it repair or replaced. If you are out camping on a Saturday and it blows or you are a long way from a store or repair place, you will not have Electrical power until whenever. The reason that Phoenix will only install one during the builld is that they hide it behind a wall. Not a good thing to happen to you.

You would be better off getting a plugin type and a chain to tie it to the electric post at the campground.

I just checked my door and the bottom plate that is attached to the refriderator is metal. The part attached to the door is plastic. When I had to replace the hing on my other PC, Norcold told me only some of the N621 models have the breaking hing problem. If I was worried about it, I would get my model ans serial numbers and call Norcold or get on their website and chat with them before getting new parts. Just me.

Paul I have lived in a couple of countries that make your part of the states look like the chilly north. When you get that much heat all the time you get used to it and don't mind it as much. When you do live up north and drive down into the heat of the South in the summer you  really can tell the difference. Living in Maryland we get a little of all the weather patterns, hot/cold, dry/wet, etc. So we never get used to anything and we feel all the effects of the weather. I am sitting here watching the storm that you just sent our way, heavy rain and wind but no tornados. Bill is going to come our way this weekend. Most of the energy  from these storms is done with by the time they reach us.

One thing I will say about taping down foil insulation is that it would be a pain to take it back up in the spring and fall and put it down again in the summer. Some times the extra heat coming up from the floor on the passengers side keeps my wife warm while I prefer the cooler air in the off seasons. Wink

You probably could order the 2014 Ford Econolpne E-Series mats as I don't think ford changed the cab for 2015. You might want to check with your local ford dealers parts department to see if they know of any changes in the floor.

Do a search for mats on this forum. Weather Tech floor mats helped us some what. But nothing is going to totally fix the problem.  There is insulation for engine compartments that you could glue under the floor, but that is a big job and some what costly. If you don't like the rubber mats in the summer just put the carpet mats on top of the rubber ones.

They are always in the middle of September. The committee announces when and where the next years reunion will be at the reunion. I think they are working on the East coast for next year but have not said for sure.

Tom...I believe Sparky and others are referencing the "marker" lights, those are the 5 smaller lights that run across the top of the front and rear caps, their is a tenancy of branches, etc striking and knowing them off the coach.   You are correct in stating the LED taillights/blinkers/stop lights  (3" in diameter) should out live us all!!!   Have a great weekend and be careful.  Ron G.


I am talking about the top lights like the ones in Rons pictures. Both my top and lower lights are LEDs. I don't see how the rear lights can be knocked off. The front overhead clearnce lights maybe, but not the rear ones.

My rear marker lights are 3" round LED lights that are recessed into the rear cap. I don't see any way they could be knocked off.

If I needed replacements, I would call the factory. I agree with Ron about checking the wiring before calling for replacements. LEDs should out last the motorhome.

starz2720000 I would test drive one before dropping your consideration of the PC. The other tread going here is now talking about the same thing but they are saying that they did not have to do any thing to the PC to be happy. Some of us have had several motorhomes while other only one or two and therefore expect different handling from our rigs. I for one found that I wanted to upgrade the shocks to Bilstein shocks on the last four motorhomes I have owned. That is just me liking the firmer ride than what the original shocks provide. Some folks want to add every thing they can that might want to improve the ride and handling while others don't feel the need to change a thing. I found that the PC is just about like every other motorhome I have owned when it come to ride, handling and steering. One motorhome will ride better, one will handling better and one will steer better that the other ones. I have had motorhomes from the pickup truck with a camper on the back, 21' to 28' class C and 28' & 35' class A motorhomes. You must remember that these things are a big box on a truck frame. Some times the wind will push you around, sometimes big trucks and buses will push you around, sometimes the road will bounce you around. If you can handle this and it will be the same for all motorhomes, you will be fine. You can find the same problems in cars and vans everyday but no one talks about them. Each one of us on here is different and want different things from our motorhomes, that is why they make so many upgrades to add to motorhomes. You make it, someone will buy it.

The hitch on the back will state it's max weight. That is not to say the motorhome can tow that much. Take the weight of a fully loaded motorhome and subtract that from the gross vehicle weight to see what you can tow. The owners manual should help also.
