Why don't you call Carol at the factory, and see what they are using or can get for you. She might know what will fit in your year.

I did not mean to start a discussion about whether to backup or not. I just asked because I am having a problem trying to install Garmin Express on my computer. When I called Garmin, the tech wanted to run a registry checker but before he did he backed it up. I stay out of the registry myself and would not know how to restore it if it got messed up and my computer would not start. Even after running the Microsoft program to check the registry and 84 minutes of trying he could not get the program (core systems) to install. I have had this program on my computer before and we removed everything we could find about it, but no help. I was able to download and install Express on my wife's laptop without any problems. I do run backups of my system and every time I needed them I found that I have been backing up the problem also and just did not find the problem until several backup later. I recently had to restore back a year ago to fix a problem. So I too wonder about backups. I guess it was a good thing that I had and kept the backups that long in this case.

I liked your new towel bar so much that I ran out to our PC to check on doing the same thing. Unfortunately our sky light comes right down to the ceiling in a curving motion, no flat area. I don't see any place to put the cups without drilling into the plastic sky light. So instead I got two command hooks and put one in the corner by the medicine cabinet and the other in the opposite corner. Then I took a short piece of clothes line and put loops in both ends. Now I can string the clothes line and use it. Not as nice as your pole, but it works.

If the breaker has an auto restart, then I would think it was planned to trip if it over heated. Since this has only happened once, should you really be worrying about it? It seems it just did its job. The question i think is what were you running that made it over heat?

 Welcome Mike,

    You do have a lot of information in your post that can be helpful to a newbie. The only problem I see is that you might be overloading them to start by posting it all in one post, like Sparky said.  exactly!

   When you reply you can add these nice little characters up above by clicking on them and you don't need the keyboard stuff :-).  nod

    One thing I did not see in your post was the road coverage by Net Coach http://www.coach-net.com/  I found them to be better than the Good Sam coverage because they try to help you with your problem before sending a tow truck. Some of us old farts have had many motorhomes in the past and have belonged to FMCA, which advertises them. ThumbsUp

   When I was in high school, there was a magazine called "Mad" with Alfred E. Newman who said "What me worry".  Wink

Hi Linda,

    On Tuesday you should call Carol at the Phoenix factory and tell her about your problem. I will bet she will take good care of you. She has always helped me when I called her. She is normally there between 6:00 am and 2:30 pm ET. You might just be amazed. ThumbsUp

I didn't have to do any modifications, I just like to do them. I think the better shocks and steering dampener did help with making it more like a sports car. Grin

If you are talking about the 3 inch hose, I use a 15 foot hose. I carry an 10 foot extension hose that is still in the box. It seem tthat over the years I have used between 15 to 20 of hose with out any problems.

In my readings it appears that Ford has several  modification that need to be made for ease of driving where as the Sprinter does not seem to need the modifications. Continuing on with the search for the perfect camper.  rolling on the floor

But for the $12,000.00 extra cost of the sprinter, you can do a lot of modifications to the Ford. My modifications cost me less than $700.00. Just some thing else to think about.

Welcome to our forum. Smile

Welcome,
    Like Bob and Berry, we have had a 2010 2350 & a 2112 2552, both on the ford E450. Yes the 2350 Was ordered with the E450. The smaller size did mean we could park it almost anywhere a crew cab, Long bed pickup could park. The sleeping and the small bathroom where the issues for two people. I am 6 foot at 245 lbs. the layout with the twin beds and the larger bathroom work much better for us, More like the class A motorhomes we have had in the past but smaller and easier to drive in small towns and national parks. We prefer the back roads for exploring and the highways to get there in a hurry.

I recently changed the shocks and the steering dampner to the new stainless steel Bilsteins. the ride got a little firmer with a lot less steering issues. No problem with large trucks or cross winds now.

690  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Side door handle on: August 23, 2013, 09:29:12 am
Here I sit in wonderfull Lancaster county in my PC. At 6:00 am my German Shepherd comes to me and puts his cold nose on me. Which in dog talk means "dad wake up I need to go out now". So I get up, get dressed, get the lease and pull the door handle. What the ... The door will not open. So we have to go out through the passengers door. After he has done his business we come back only to find the door will not open from the outside either. Back in through the passengers door we go. I get my screwdriver and take out the three screws that hold the door latch together. I take the inside part off the door and inspect it. I can not find anything broken. I push it together again and it still will not work. Boy, I sure wish I had my morning coffee. After a couple more trys at taking it apart an putting it back togher, I decied to put the screws back in and try it. Sure, now it works. It turns out the screws had come lose and the inside handle came pass the slot that turns the lever. So please check your screws to make sure they are tight, but don't strip them.
After two cups of coffe and a nice breakfest, all this now is funny, but at 6:00 am it was not so funny
 ThumbsUp.
