    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 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.

So sad to see you go.
Happy you found the motorhome of your dreams. Safe travels.

Good morning Tom!

In the cabinet over the copilot seat is the tv antenna connection. There is a button that turns on the antenna power boost and a red light. When using cable, you want the power/light to be off, otherwise you get a fuzzy picture. It is best to leave it off when not using the antenna to save battery power.

Holly, if the campground store does not have your bulb, try here: http://www.queenstownrv.com/Location.html
They are just down the road on rt 1 not far from you. Take one of your old bulbs with you.

Yes they can be installed after market. Phoneix builds the motorhome and then sends it down the street to HWH in Elkhart to have the jacks installed. Most RV dealers, repair shops and even Camping World (they have gone down hill lately IMHO) can install them.

I said the toilet must be over the black tank. I did not say any thing about the shower. Maybe you should learn to read better before trying to insult some one.  Wink

Have you called Kermit about this? He might help you pay for your change. Asking can never hurt.

Drawers under the driver side bed? What happened to the Gray Water tank?

Both gray and black tanks are outside under the floor on all the Ford models. I don't know about the sprinter. Depending on the model, the drivers side tank is the black water or the gray water. It all comes down to where the toilet is. It must be over the black tank for a better drop when flushing.

I for one am not a fan of the new bed, but to each his own. The advantage of the twins is you can get into the bathroom without climbing over a bed. Those big pillows on the side would be in the house. I might slide the passengers side out so I could hang my feet over the end of the bed. My wife does not need to do that. The other down side is finding sheets that fit it when out and another set for when it is in. I would not want to make the bed when it is out.

Looking at the rear, it looks like the trunk might be wider than the current trunk. A big plus to me.

I wish they would come up with a new paint scheme that does not have all those swirls.
