I am talking about the 8 1/2 high x 3 3/4 wide tri-fold brochure. It is mostly red with white lettering, and two pictures on the front.

I also got the business cards from VistaPrint with the road on them from Kyle.

Aimee I am sorry if I offended you in any way. You know I am a big fan off your work and all you do for us on this forum. I know that each part of this country has different taste and still I opened my big mouth.

My concern had to do with all that bright red. It seemed to scream at me. It also seemed to be overly crowed with information.

What I was hoping for was a something about that size but only a front and back card type. It might list the company name, address, phone and contact information with room for me to add my name and if I want contact information. Having some information like "we custionize layouts",and maybe the layouts on the back. Also "Call and see what we can do for you"  would be helpful.

As they say "less is more" and "keep them  asking for more". After all the reason I would give them the card is to get them to call Earl for more infomation. Let him do his magic with them.

Again I hope you can forgive me.

We use a clothes pin that stays on the crank handle until it goes up. Then it goes on the gear shift.

Are you guys talking about the plunger type switch on the hinge side of the door? The one the bolt on the door pushes in.

Ron, Instead of regular WD40 you might want to try WD40 Silicone spray on parts you want to lube but don't want the oily on the outside. Dirt and sand will stick to regular WD40 but not to the Silicone spray. Both types have their uses.

Sorry I did not mean anything bad or going without the DW. I just figured you were dreaming about how easy it would be to if you had a really small rig.
If I was traveling alone, which I hope never happens, I would own a 22 foot class B sprinter that looked like a passenger van, not a camper.

Like all mechcanal things, you should work them every now and then or they will rust and get stuck. I use mine everytime we go camping and once a month during the winter storage. I spray the springs with WD40 every year. I never had any problems with them. Use them a few times and you will not use the old boards except in extreme cases.

Assuming you jiggled all the wires and checked to insure the ground is clean. Checked the wall switch wires.
If all else fails try the grandma method. Smack it. nod I don't know why this works but it does.

Our first PC was a 2350. We traded it in on the 2552. We are in Howard County, near the fairgrounds if you want to see the 2552. I also will try to answer any question you might have about Phoenix and ordering one. Have you taken the factory tour yet?

Welcome to the forum.
 Cheers

 I have had hydraulic HWH levelers on my five different motorhomes since 1989. The motorhome before that had electric jacks on it. Here in the mid Atlantic area there are very few level sites, so having levelers is very important to me for comfort. We find that out west the campground seem to have more level sites. So it would be up to you and where you camp if they are important, a nice convince or not worth it.

The electric jacks were quite compared to the hydraulic but much slower. They also required putting grease on the shafts and in the jack to keep them from rusting, while the hydraulic require spraying the springs. The spraying is easier for me.

Welcome to the forum.

From the Michelin web site:

Service Life for RV/Motorhome Tires
The following recommendation applies to RV/Motorhome tires. Tires are composed of
various types of material and rubber compounds, having performance properties essential
to the proper functioning of the tire itself. These component properties evolve over time.
For each tire, this evolution depends upon many factors such as weather, storage conditions,
and conditions of use (load, speed, inflation pressure, maintenance, etc.) to which the tire is
subjected throughout its life. This service-related evolution varies widely so that accurately
predicting the serviceable life of any specific tire in advance is not possible.
That is why, in addition to regular inspections and inflation pressure maintenance by
consumers, it is recommended to have RV/Motorhome tires, including spare tires, inspected
regularly by a qualified tire specialist, such as a tire dealer, who will assess the tire’s
suitability for continued service. Tires that have been in use for 5 years or more should
continue to be inspected by a specialist at least annually.
Consumers are strongly encouraged to be aware not only of their tires’ visual condition and
inflation pressure, but also of any change in dynamic performance such as increased air
loss, noise or vibration, which could be an indication that the tires need to be removed from
service to prevent tire failure.
It is impossible to predict when tires should be replaced based on their calendar age alone.
However, the older a tire the greater the chance that it will need to be replaced due to the
service-related evolution or other conditions found upon inspection or detected during use.
While most tires will need replacement before they achieve 10 years, it is recommended that
any tires in service 10 years or more from the date of manufacture, including spare tires, be
replaced with new tires as a simple precaution even if such tires appear serviceable and even
if they have not reached the legal wear limit.
For tires that were on an original equipment vehicle (i.e., acquired by the consumer on a
new vehicle), follow the vehicle manufacturer’s tire replacement recommendations, when
specified (but not to exceed 10 years).
The date when a tire was manufactured is located on the sidewall of each tire. Consumers
should locate the Department of Transportation or DOT code on the tire that begins with
DOT and ends with the week and year of manufacture. For example, a DOT code ending
with “0304” indicates a tire made in the 3rd week (Jan) of 2004. (See back.)

I forgot to say that the KOA we stayed at was in West Glacier, not the one in St. Marys. We did spent one night in a small campground in East Glacier before driving around the south road (Rt 2) to West Glacier. Back then we had a 35' class A, and did not have any problems with main roads. There were several small rustic campgrounds along Rt 2 that we would not have fit into but they did look nice.

We did it several years ago. We stayed at the KOA and the red bus picked us up at the campground to tour the "Going to the sun road". I highly recommad taking the tour and leaving the driving to them. Our driver told us that new drivers have to ride across several times to get use to the sights so they learn to keep their mind on the driving.  The next day we rented a car and toured outside the park. Had dinner at the KOA campground one night. It was very good.

Does anyone know if the big eagle archway is still there? Does it lead to anything now?

Last I heard all the Michelins in our size were gone because ot the recall. Are yor michelins included in the recall?  You might want to do a search on here for "Michelin" or " tires". I would check the Michelin web site. They were replacing their tires with other brands for the recall. The recall did not care about milage. Lets us know what you find out.
