Nice list with every thing one could possibly want.
I was wondering where you live and where you plan on going camping. What with the insulated windows, and upgraded AC. You might want to update your profile to include where you live.

My 5 year old full paint PC still looks like new. It has never been indoors since leaving the factory and during oil changes at Jiffy Lube.

If the diamond shield has changed color to a light brown I can't tell because my full paint in those areas is light brown.

We had double pane windows in our Winnebago before getting the PC. Several of the windows were fogging up when we traded it in. So we did not get double pane in either of our two PCs. We find the white MCD shade will keep some, a lot of the cold out when pulled all the way down. I don't know if I would get double pane windows in our next motorhome, if there is a next motorhome. We don't do any winter camping after Thanksgiving.

We tow a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Like Mike, Our auxiliary braking system is the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo, with the remote radio baking lights/signal in the PC cab. We use the Blue Ox tow bar system also. Last month on the way to Myrtle Beach, SC I bent my 13 year old tow bar and ended up replacing it with the new Blue Ox Aventa tow bar which is 2 inches longer. It works even better than the old bar when turning.

Some people have had a problem towing the Cherokee. It goes into a bad shaking until you stop.  Jeep has a fix for this, but we have not as of yet so have not had the fix done. I have towed it from Maryland to South Dakota and down to Myrtle beach at the maximum highway posted speed limit, (read up to 80 MPH). We have found that the older Liberty and the Cherokee are better if you want to take another couple with you, say like out shopping or to dinner than the Wrangler. My buddy has one and every time we go out I get to drive.

I use WD40 heavy dute water proof silicone spray. It does not atract dirt like regular WD40. In the past I would use regular WD40 then wash the them every spring and re-spray. I still wash every spring but I find less dirt now.

Ron have you sprayed the rod with silcone spray? I had to repair my black water tank valve because the gear wheel broke in half. The biggest problem I had was that there is no, l mean NO, slack in the electric wires. I ended up splicing in about 6" of wire in order to have something to work with. You might be able to remove the whole motor and valve in one piece with out having to disconnect the wires. Good luck and let us know how it goes for you.

Welcome to both our new Texans.

Sandy the pump is mounted to the fame underneath on the drivers side. It is a real pain to get to it in order to check the fluid level. You will need a mirror as the hole is on top of the box. You will see led lights on the front of the box. What is your problem? Have you cleaned and sprayed the jacks and springs?

I do what is said above plus I add Sta bil to the gas tank. Then I fill the gas tank, drive around to mix it up. Then I run the generator for 15 to 30 miniutes to get the mixed gas into it.

Barry/Sue, congrads on becoming the third PCPC. 1000 post.  Cheers

I don't know about you guys, but I get a lot of dead bugs on my wings when traveling. I don't need to look out a window covered in dead bugs. I would think a small rock throw up might bounce off a thick window shield or maybe put a hole in it would break the thinner side window in a wing.
Just my thoughts.

My Euro chair is started to flake also. I haven't decided when and what I will do about it yet.
Maybe we can get the FEDS to issue a recall on this ultra leather.  rolling on the floor

    Back in 1984 when I got my first set of HWH jacks, which were installed on a 26' class C, they came with four levers. One for each jack. In 1989 when I got my second set of HWH jacks, which were installed on a 34' class A,  they came with push button controls. The buttons would control two jacks at a time. HWH told me that this was to prevent twisting of the frame. They went with this system because some of the larger motorhomes would twist if only one jack was raised to high. Then the windshield might pop out. In those days the glues used were not as good as today. I have not heard of any problems with this system since then, until this tread came along. Maybe it is time to stop worrying and enjoy life.

    I have been using HWH jacks since 1989. The HWH jacks that Phoenix has put on will rise 6 inches. that is enough to lift the front tires off the ground about 1 inch but will not lift the rear tires off the ground. The rear tires are almost off the ground, so be very careful. As we all know the parking brake locks the rear brakes, so if you were to lift the rear tires you could roll forward or backward. If you lift the front off the ground, but not the rear, you will be safe but the PC will wobble as you walk around inside it. I carry two plastic ramps that are about 12 inches long and use them if the jacks are not enough. When up on the ramps, I will place a 2 inch board under the jack to stabilize the PC. I rarely do this, only in extreme cases.

   As for the refrigerator, todays units are not as sensitive to being off level as back in the 1900 and early 2000s. Check you owners manual.

We are glad that every thing worked in your favor.
Thank you for letting every one know how it came out.

We live in Vero Beach, FL and are bracing for Matthew.   Keep us and our family in your thoughts and prayers during this very concerning time.  We will be hit with the worst conditions today and tomorrow.  I will post again when power allows.

Why don't you get in the PC and get the hell out of there. By staying you might be putting the lives of the police, fire fighter and national guard at risk when they have to come save you. This storm is not a joke. It will take more than prayers to save you. God helps those who help themselves.

Airplanes do not land at an airport during a hurricane.

We were sitting on the beach in Myrtle Beach's Lakewood campground until yesterday morning. The Governor of South Carolina asked that everyone move inland 100 miles. So we left and came home to Maryland. I don't want to get hurt or have anyone get hurt trying to save me.

I never have rotated RV tires as they die of old age (about 7 -10 years old) before the tread wears off on my motorhomes.
