I like the new description area.  ThumbsUp
Only question is what happened to the options? They do not show under my name. Would it make each post to long?

I started in 1969 on an IBM 360/25 with 64K memory. Memory board was 4 feet by 4 feet.  Bolt

I stand corrected. It was very early in the morning and the large trees cast a large shadow in the forground.   And I thought it was how dirty the motorhome was. Thanks for explaining why it did not make the home page.  ThankYou

I really like the look of the forum.  Cheers

I would call Kermit at the factory and ask him what to use. The best information is from the folks who built it.  Grin

PJ, the 85 lb dog is a 11 year old Labrador Retriever named Bonnie. The 124 lb dog is a 3 year old German Shepherd Dog named Charlie. Charlie loves his milk bones with all those vitamins. He stands 30" at the shoulders. You can see a picture of them on the "Adventure Anywhere" page. It did not make the main page as the motorhome was really dirty that day.  Between the PC's size and looks, and this big shepherd, we get a lot of comments from people passing by. It is amazing how many people stop to pet him because of they had a German Shepherd Dog at one time or just because they think he is a "real" dog. Like you said, there are a lot of really small dogs in some really big rigs.

I weighted my 2350 on the way home from the factory pickup. A lot of stuff from the old motorhome, that ended up in the shed, was still in it. The E450 (an upgrade on my 2350) rates the front for 4,600 lbs, mine was 3,600 lbs. The rear is rated for 9,500 lbs, mine was 8,160 lbs. Gross weight is rated at 14,500 lbs, mine was 11,760 lbs. I had me (235 lbs), my wife (weight unknown), a 85 lb dog and a 124 lb dog all in the motorhome.The water tank and LP were both full but the gray and black empty. This left us a pay load of 2,740 lbs to spare.
I should reweigh it now that I have settled down with what I normally carry for a trip.

I am trying to post a picture of my mod to the sani-con hose. It allows me to break the water vacuum in the hose after dumping to clear the water out of the hose. It will work for winterizing also.
The instructions of how I did this is above in a previous reply.

I hope this works.  shrug

DJM, as you look at the map of Yellowstone, you will notice the roads are in the figure "8", pointing up toward north. The right side is the eastern side and the left is the western side. The top half of the "8" is called the upper and the bottom half is the lower. West Yellowstone is on the left and the mid-point just outside of the park. The road from West Yellowstone to Old Faithfull and down to the south entrance would be the "the lower western loop to Old Faithfull" or the left side, lower part of the figure "8".

Sorry it took so long to get back to you, but we were out camping this past weekend and did not have an internet connection.

Our door also fell off because the bottom hinge broke. I crazy glued it and was able to finish our trip. When we got home and opened the door to unload, it broke again. I called Dometic and they asked how old our door was, the model number and if the inside was smooth or quilted. I told her that it was three months old, I bought it in June and this happened in September. She said she would sent me a new door with instructions on how to remove the front panel from the old door and put it into the new door. I got the door two days later, but no instructions. After playing with it for a while, I finally got the panel moved and installed the new door. No charge to me. So call Dometic if you are still under warrenty.

Paula, it is great to know that our slides are one of the best. Thank you for following up on your problems and the repairs. We all eat crow every now and then.

DJM you don't say how long you plan on taking to get to Yellowstone, how long you can be at Yellowstone and how long to get back. Yellowstone is my favorite place to go. I go in the spring, summer, fall and winter. Love it in the snow, but not for everyone.

    On the way out I would suggest stopping at: Mitchell, SD to see the corn palace, the Black hills to see Mount Rushmore and Custer State Park, Cody, Wy to see Buffalo Bill Center and the rodeo (take Wy. rt 16 accross the mountains, not rt 14 or 14A). From Cody, you can enter the parks east entrance or take the Chief Joseph Hwy to Cooke City, Mt and on to the northeast entrance, through LaMar valley to see all the buffalo and elk, then to the Mammoth Hot springs and out the north entrance to Gardiner. Coming back into the park, go down the east side of the loop and see the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone including the upper and lower falls. Cut across the middle of the loops and go to West Yellowstone, Mt. There you will want to go to the Grizzly and Wolf center to see them up close. You have to be really lucky to see them in the wild. Coming back into the park, take the lower western loop to Old Faithfull, stopping along the way to see the many sites, springs, mud pots etc. After Old Faithfull go out the south entrance toward the Grand Tetons and Jackson, Wy. These are just some of the many sites to see. You could spent weeks in Yellowstone and not see everything.

1033  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Deinstall Coffee Maker from Cupboard door on: October 12, 2010, 04:17:57 pm
    We did not get the PC coffee maker. I told them to keep it as I wanted the space for a trash can. Instead my wife and I went to Sears and bought a 5 cup coffee maker for $25. She stores it in the cabinet over the drivers seat during the day. There is plent of height for it or maybe even a larger coffee maker. At night she sits it on the counter over the stove, under the hood ready for the morning. Seem to work for us and have not had any problems with it yet. Five cups is great as I don't have to wait as long for that first cup and it doesn't take that long to brew the second pot when needed.

I just went out to the motorhome to check the door screws. I did not find any broken screws but there were several that I could tighten. They were in the door frame to the body and the door handle/lock and latch. The screws in the door all were tight. Thanks for the tip. It could be embarrassing to have the door fall out going down the road. LOL

Bob, thank you for the clarifcation on what you said about the mirrors. I still do not understand about seeing 200' behind you. Starting at what point? Anyway, I am happy with the shorter arms. I believe that everyone has the right to their choice of short or long arms. I guess that is why they make both sizes. I don't want to have this issue go on and on, so I have said how I feel and I will leave it at that. No more about mirrors from me.
