    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.

677  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

Sparky, you have the newer hing just like mine. On the old hing the flat part was plastic and would break when stressed. You should be OK, so stop worrying. Wink

My twins are memory form mattress. The same as tempurpedics. You can also go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and get a mattress pad by Tempurpedics in 1 or 2 inch thick. The 3 inch will not fit under the window curtain thingy.

I am glad it all worked out in the end.
What do you think of the SMI system?

With the san-i-con, I crack the grey tank first just to insure it's working and no leaks (don't want the black tank leaking  Grin ) Then I open the black tank and turn on the macerate to get rid of the solids; next turn off the macerator; then open the grey tank and wait until both tanks equalize. I turn the macerator back on until both tanks are empty.

I used to use the sprayer after dumping the black tank; but, by letting the soapy water from the grey tank clean it, I seldom use it.

By doing this, aren't you just cleaning the bottom half of the black tank? I would suggest you still use the sprayer to clean the top half of the tank. I do like the thought of cleaning the bottom of the black tank using the gray water.

Phoenix does not put a compartment for the sewer hose on their motorhomes. Some people add a home made tube or use one of the other compartments.
683  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Check your valve stem cores on: August 17, 2013, 05:01:49 pm
Mine has the 6 and 8 inch valve extensions on the rear, which one should check the tighness on the valve stem as well as the four cores. The front has the half inch valve caps that allow adding air without removing them. One should remove them and check the valve core also. I do this every year, but some say I am anal about stuff like this.

Thanks, Charlie the GSD likes to watch the world go by.
No way was I going any where Near Gettysburg during the mass of people at the 150. Hotels and campgrounds were booked up for 50 miles around. Parking was a nightmare. It only takes me an hour to get to Gettysburg, but not that week.

My top hinge is a hex head with a slot for a flathead screwdriver. The bottom hinge is a large plastic pice that rest on a metal plate. It must be the newer design I read about. I had a door break many years ago (1997 or 1998) but none since. I think the only people that need to worry about this are those who have models older than a couple of years ago, 2009 or before. Just my guess.

Holly, You might want to call Camping World ask for an estimate from them before going with your current estimate. Last week I saw the SMI system installed in a Jeep Grand Cherokee and it was real nice. Nothing to do inside, just hook up and go. For full timing it might be a better system. He had it installed along with the tow bar & plate at Camping World in Hanover, Pa.

Did you get your noise and counter top fitted?
