I went by the RV dealer I used to work at yesterday. They were already sold out of the stuff. I asked the owner about it and he told me he had never used it but that Thetford makes good products and I might want to try it. My only concern is, if I understand you,  you pour it in and let it sit. I seems like it would work on the top of the top seal, but I don't understand how it works on the bottom or inside the groove of the seal. When I have sprayed in the past I always open the valve and sprayed all over the seal. I do appreciate your input and I bet you a dollar I will end up trying it after my next stop at Camping World.

The add says it is based on "Silicone-based formula". I am wondering what the difference is between using this product and just spraying it with silicone spray? Seems like the spray I use on all the other rubber parts and slide out would work here also. The new WD40 silicone spray is waterproof, so the can says. What do you think?

When I had a 2010 model 2350 the fresh water tank was under the bed at the rear, passengers side. The gray tank was under the fresh water tank also on the passengers side. The black tank was on the drivers side. On my 2012 model 2552 the black and gray tanks are switched as the toilet has moved from the drivers side to the passengers side of the center line. The toilet has to be over the tank used as the black tank. The fresh water is mid way under the passsengers side bed.
If you look at all the layouts you will see the black tank changes by where the toilet is located. You can tell this by looking at the capacity of each tank. PC only uses two tanks, the one 35 gal. that fits under the passengers side behind the axle and a smaller 23 gal. tank the fits under the sani-con on the drivers side. The fresh water tank changes size based on the layout.

So, after much discussion in our house, what dictates the tire pressure?  Tire manufacturer, chassis manufacturer or motorhome designer?


Seems to me it varies depending on the load and which model is on the chassis and where the weight is distributed with each build.  But then, I'm only a girl. 

It is up to the chassis manufacture to set the pay load based on a number of things like wheels, axles, brakes, fame etc. It is up to the motorhome maker to stay within these limits. The tire manufacture puts the maxmium air pressure for the tires. This is why a four wheel weight is important.

"But then, I'm only a girl". If i was trying to be funny, I would say something about the amount of air given off by the different sexes, but I would never say something like that. Oh, no.

I will need to see how it all comes into being and how it works. It seems a little complicated just reading about it. It might be better to start simple and add features as everyone gets used to it. Then again it might be alright as you envisioned it. It is hard for me to tell without seeing the screens. It does look like you have put a lot of work into it, so please don't take my remarks wrong. It is just hard for me.

I am all for the program. I met John and holly through this program and I just spent last weekend with them camping with their new PC and had a great time. They are welcome to camp with us anytime.

Been there, done that and highly recommand the red buses. Worth every penny to let them do the driving. We stayed at the West Glaicer KOA and the bus came right into the campground.

Also love the tetons and yellowstone.

"But I do have to admit, the dinette is not something to sit on for hours on-end.  I understand why some people like Judi & George ordered theirs with two captain chairs and a swing-up table.  But that does sacrifice the two bench seat storage areas and the single convert-a-bed.  That single bed has come in handy a few times for us.  Once I got sick on a trip and needed to sleep alone for 3 nights.  In another situation during a weekend get-away with family at a private camp ground, the place surprised us with a one pup tent per site restriction.  We quickly had a house guest which we were happy to accomodate.

We could NEVER consider any twin bed model.  Our first night saying "Good Night Honey" from across the isle would have us quickly squished together on one of the twins.  We would much rather deal with the limited access of the rear corner "double" bed."

Ron on one hand you say once you got sick and sept on the dinnette and on the other you say you could never sleep alone, Which is it?

Holly, It sounds like the arms need to be aligned. Ask the repairman when he comes for the recall about it.

One way to fined a leak is to have one person inside watching for water. The other person is on the roof with a water hose, no nosel, letting water run around any possible entery spots. Don't go to fast as the water needs time to run down into the motorhome. When the inside person calls out, you have found where it is. Do one spot then wait a minute otherwise you may pass the leak. After you find what you think is the leak, recheck that spot and the last couple of spots you watered, just in case you are faster than the water.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

A clockspring or clock spring is a special rotary electrical connector which allows a vehicle's steering wheel to turn while still making an electrical connection between the steering wheel airbag and/or the vehicle's horn and other devices and the vehicle's electrical systems. The clockspring is located between the steering wheel and the steering column.

I never knew that is what it was called.
