I try to keep the slide side lower than the other side. That way any water that does get on the top runs away from the body and not into it.

I also checked my ignition switch and one click counter clockwise is the acc position. The radio works on it. Remember to turn it off and not run down the engine battery. The white switch on the dash must be held in for several minutes in order to start a dead engine battery

Welcome to the PC world. I am sorry you are having problems right out the door.

What happens if you turn the ignition switch to run but not all the way to start? Will the Radio/GPS work then? I don't understand what the TV signal has to do with the GPS. Can you explain it to me?

Hair dryer or heat gun from underneath, or a knife and pry bar, or a wire saw (boy scout days) to cut the glue. Or wait for another very hot day, one coming next week.

Have you checked out mail forwarding services? FMCA.com and Good Sam offers such a service. I have never used it but it sounds good as long as you plan on staying a one location for a few days.

    One of the first things I do when I get a new motorhome is to have Bilstein HD shocks installed on all four corners. I order them from eshock.com and take them to my local truck and tire shop (Rice Tire) in Frederick, Md. For HD shocks eshock wants $89 each or all four for $356. Comfort are $83 each or $332 for all four. Rice charges me about $25 each or $100 for all four to install them. I am getting all four for what CW wants for two.

    You might want to call where you get your tires and ask them what they charge to install shocks if you bring them in and what they want for them if they get them for you.

Hi Cindy and Dale,


I would start troubleshooting by going on the roof and spin the fan by hand.  Make sure it spins freely.  If not, inspect for something like a twig to even something wound around the shaft of the fan, check for clearance between the blade and everything else.

If the blade spins freely, then you can look into the next possibility.  Maybe the switch that turns the fan on/off when opening and closing the cap has malfunctioned.  I am not sure where that switch is located in our fan.  If you can get to it, make sure it is aligned right and clicks on/off when the cap opens and closes.  Maybe the switch is good but got loose and is not

There is no need to go on the roof. Just pop the screen off from inside, like when cleaning the fan/screen. You can do everything from inside. Ron must have one of the old style fans that required removing a bunch of screws to remove the screen.

The Fantastic fan runs off the house batteries. Check the ceiling lights. Check the switch by the door. Call Fantastic vent company, they are great to work with.

I just watched it. It is very well done. A little long but worth the time. It should help a new person looking at a PC understand some of the advantages. It should help some of the older owner see some of the upgrades also.

I try to flow with the traffic or just a couple of mph below letting them go around me. If traffic backs up behind me I will pull over or speed up. I have always been a speed demon but in my old age I seem to be slowing down. Doing 80 mph in the PC just seems to fast now a days, 68 is more my max speed now.

Boy that must be one tough stain. I would try the purple stuff and let it sit for a few mintues before wiping it off. If that doesn't work, I would call Kermit.

Tom,

We did see a spray bottle of Purple Power Industrial Strength Cleaner & Degreaser.  Was that the product you recommended?

Gail

Yep that is it.

Full body paint cost 6% of the 2350 cost without options. Also think about tradein or resale value. Try Kelly blue book or nada and see the difference on a 5 year old motorhome. Subtract that number from the cost of full body. Now think about which looks best to you. Even if you like a single color, like white, you should ask Earl about the cost of just one color.

I have had motorhomes both ways and I think the full body is easier to keep clean looking. When I was a young man I washed and waxed the motorhome every month. Boy did it ever shine. Now I use gel coat wash and wax. I can be really lazy some times. Any way this hobby is about having fun not having to work. I can stay home and work.

 What you want is what counts. Wink
