My 2010 Ford E-450 has the hood and fenders are made of stamped steel. I did not know that Ford made any vans with fiberglass hoods. It is very interesting what one learns on here.

    I saw a new show on Maryland PBS today called "Above Yellowstone". They do flyovers of the park with some fantastic photos of the landscape. They seem to jump around the park but I still think if you are going to Yellowstone you should try to watch the show. kumbaya

    In the shot of the north gate in Gardner you will see a small motorhome parked just inside the gate on the right. That could be the shot of my PC that is in "Adventure Anywhere". At the very lest that is where I was parked when I took the picture. Grin

Trudy, on our thermostat the fan has a switch that reads on or auto and another switch below it that reads high or low for the speed. I would guess that you have the same thermostat because you have a 2010 PC just like me, unless you didn't get the conveniences package with the a/c upgrade.

This last weekend we started running the A/C with the fan set to auto. The speed was set to high during the day and would cycle on and off as needed. At night we set the fan to on and the speed to low. The fan ran all the time but was much quieter than on high. The other thing it did was that it did not seem as loud and it was not as notable when the compressor cut in. When it cooled way down at night, I had to reach up and turn it off. Nice having a smaller well designed RV where everything seems to be within reach. nod

Ron, I would be careful of what you say here. If your wife reads it, you could be catching "a dust collecting decorative thingy" on the back of your head. rolling on the floor

In Aimee's copy of the picture, there is line across the middle of the picture that does not seem to be there in your copy. Do you know what might have caused the line?

I would not worry about not having a ladder or rack on the back of your PC. After all, no one said any thing about the picture of my PC without a rack or rear window.  exactly!

It runs just as fast as the motorhome, at least it is always there when I get where I am going.  rolling on the floor rolling on the floor Cry rolling on the floor

Seriously, it runs at a fast speed all the time. The only difference I can tell is that the sound changes to a deeper sound as the load increases.

Given that this is a long weekend, I thought I would start this topic asking where everyone is going this weekend and if they plan on camping or visiting friends and family. Anyone staying home due to the gas prices?

My wife, two dogs and I are headed to Flory's campground in Ronks, Pa. It is just east of Lancaster in the tourist area. Lots of shopping and touring the Amish areas. Also near by Strasbourg has a tourist railroad, a railroad museum and a toy railroad museum. The food that the Amish prepare will have us losing our belts before the weekend is out.

So what are you doing?

Take a few minutes to remember our troops where ever they are serving and those who gave their all so we can have this weekend and life style.  Cheers

On my 2010, if the inverter is on, the TV and the DVD player are in the stand by mode, the red lights are on, regardless if the battery disconnect is on or off. If the battery disconnect is off and I turn off the inverter, the red lights will go out, very very slowly.

The step is connected to the engine battery, not the house battery. This is for safety reasons. You always want the step to come out, otherwise you have one great big step down to the ground. That could hurt.

Ron, that is the same type of bed in the current PC only the sofa is much better built. Did you notice the big gap between the seat and the back when he opened the bed? That is not there with our bed.

It was address by a girl and sent to Tom & Jo Anne Hanlon at our home address. There was no reference to us in the letter other than saying they wanted our PC in trade. My email address was not to be seen. It was post marked in South Bend, In. Stuart already has a copy of the letter. My guess is that they looked on here at our signature and my name and looked us up in a phone book for Maryland.
Thanks for your concern about our email address.
1020  Main Forum / General Discussion / got a letter from a new company wanting me to trade in my PC. on: May 13, 2011, 04:10:24 pm
    Today I got a letter from a new company that is starting up in Elkhart called NeXus RVS. They wanted to me to trade in my PC on one of their new units. I googled them and watched their videos. It was amusing watching the ex-salesman, now company president Claude Donati describing their motorhome and how they plan on doing business. It looks like they used Phoenix as a business model on how they will build and sell their motorhomes. They are located two blocks north of the Phoenix factory on the same road. Their units have little of the aerodynamics in the front and where the cab meets the box is a real wind catcher and the flat side walls should make it hard to handle in the wind. Mr Donati went to great lengths to talk about the stronger steel side walls but did not explain how they plan to keep the steel from rusting and staining the walls. Wait until you see their new sofa that they have, and how it turns into a bed.  rolling on the floor  While watching the videos, I kept thinking I was really glad that I have a PC.

    I wonder how they got my name, address and knew that I have a PC?

    Has anyone else got this letter?
