Hi David,
    We had to buy a new air mattress while on a trip because the originall one developed a hole and would not hold air. We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond, which had three different mattress. The good one ($100) looked like what we had, the better one ($200) had a pad on the top and the best one ($300) had the better pad on top. Both the better and the best ones had the motor off to one side. I felt the best one might be too thick, so we went with the better one. I ended up putting the motor at the foot of the bed and running the control wires and the electricc wire under the mattress up to the top. This allowed us to get to the quick deflate plug without laying on the bed. When we fold up the bed, we fold the leg over the mattress and then fold the bottom of the mattress over the leg bar before putting the sofa down. There is plenty of room for the motor behind the back of the sofa. If I had to do it again, I would look at the best mattress again as it might fit this way. Since my wife generallyy sleeps on the the air bed while I use the corner bed all I can say is that she thinks this mattress is far better than what came with the motorhome. I hope this is some help to you. ThumbsUp

Billy, I am wondering why you want or anyone would want two 6 volt batteries instead of the two 12 volt ones that come standard? Our old Winnebago 35' had two 12 volt batteries and I never needed for more. We went to a FMCA rally once, pulled in Sunday afternoon and did not start the engine until the next Saturday morning. We ran the generator each morning so we could run the coffee maker and some evening to run the microwave. Only watched TV for the news and weather reports. We never had any power issues. For all our other camping we have driven at least every other day or stayed in campgrounds with electric hookup. I can understand that some people might want more reserve if they dry camp for a long time with out using their generator or driving anywhere. I also can understand if you have that same affliction that I have, the Tim Allen affliction, Bigger and more power is better. What you have to say?

I am really glad to hear you had a great trip and returned safely. Now you need to go into more detail of what you did and saw at each of the stops. We all want to see some of your pictures. What was each persons favorite stop?
What would you recommend to someone planning a trip out west?

Just a quick followup; I went with nmc Coach Net for three years at $278.50. After reading the a bunch of RV sites I felt this would be the one for me. I got a $20 discount because I belong to FMCA.
Thank you all for the feed back. ThankYou

This past Sunday on our way home from camping, I stopped for gas and noticed that the drivers side rear tire was flat. I found a nice level parking lot nearby and started to change the tire in the 90 degree heat. First let tell you that I played with the hub caps for about 45 minutes before digging out the owners papers and reading that they just pry off like regular hub caps. The nut caps do not have anything to do with holding them on. Then I had to use the bottle jack to get the PC high enough to lower the HWH jacks and put a 2x4 under them. Then I could raise it the tire enough to change it. All this took me almost two hours in the heat. At my age I am ready to start letting someone else do this type of thing. So I have decided that I need some type of emergency road service. I have started looking at Coach-Net RV and Good Sam ERS. Do any of you know anything about them or any other service? Help

SO Stuart, when do we get to see these new colors and the secret new model?

I just went out to my 2010 PC 2350 full body paint - Umber and check under the hood and the drivers door fame. I did not see any paint codes. Then I got out the four bottles of touch up paint that came with my PC. On the bottles is written "Phoenix Beige #1", "Phoenix Beige #2", "Phoenix Beige #3" and "Phoenix Beige #4". Not much help but in the bag was a sticker which might be one one that should have been put under the hood.  I think that 2009 thru 2011 all had the same paint colors.
The sticker reads:
Phoenix Beige 2009
#1 68U Sand
#2 C21 Woodland Br. Met.
#3 314F5 Brown Met.
#4 357G1 Grey Met.
I don't see and Grey on my motorhome but I do see some black stripes. You can see my PC in Adventures Anywhere, it's the brown one.
I hope your paint shop can makes heads or tails of these codes.

I bet Carol can tell you who makes the backup camera. You just have to wait until next week when the factory reopens.

Sounds like a good deal. It is great for him to have been able to adjust his career that way. Good job.
I wonder if he would make a house call to Maryland? I don't think I could afford the community fee.

You let someone else touch your PC!!! What a crazy idea.  rolling on the floor
What does he do about the roof?

    Yes Aimee truck stops sometimes have truck washes but they are not always where you want them when it comes time to wash the motorhome. The other problem is that they tend to use very harsh chemicals to wash with. Back when I was a working man, I came in contact with a lot of truck drivers and when I asked about using the truck stop wash, they all said they would not want to do that to their paint jobs. I know there are some real pretty trucks out there but I don't know if they use the truck stop wash bays.

    Barry I do like your yard stick trick. Now I guess i will have to get a yard stick for the motorhome. What percentage of the car wash bays to you find you can use for the PC?

I don't think this would be possible. The outside wall of the slide out is cut out of the original wall. Since yours is already cut to the smaller size it would be impossible to use the existing wall. You would have to buy a whole new wall and start from there. The cost would be really high to replace the whole wall. But then if you have the money any thing is possible, if not practical.

    Has anyone tried to use a car wash bay to wash their PC?

    Last September while on a trip to Yellowstone my PC got really dirty and their were car wash bays in town. I kept looking at them wondering if I could fit under the wash arm but I could not find any signs giving the max high allowed. Since my PC is on the E-450 the specs say it is 10' 1" high, 2 inches higher than the E-350. I have occasionally seen over sized bays for larger vehicles but these were the standard size. It sure would be nice to be able to use a car wash bay while on trips when it gets really really dirty.

I wash and wax my motorhome using "Gel-Gloss Heavy duty RV Wash & Wax".  I start at the top on the roof by climbing up there and using a long handle brush, then back on the ground I do the sides. I have never needed to hand wax my motorhomes as this stuff leaves a really good shine. There are several products by Gel-gloss including a couple of waxes. Someday I may try the cleaner & wax or the straight wax they sell, but for now I am happy with just washing it and having it wax itself. I can get very lazy sometimes. rolling on the floor
