Just a quick followup; I went with nmc Coach Net for three years at $278.50. After reading the a bunch of RV sites I felt this would be the one for me. I got a $20 discount because I belong to FMCA.
Thank you all for the feed back. ThankYou

This past Sunday on our way home from camping, I stopped for gas and noticed that the drivers side rear tire was flat. I found a nice level parking lot nearby and started to change the tire in the 90 degree heat. First let tell you that I played with the hub caps for about 45 minutes before digging out the owners papers and reading that they just pry off like regular hub caps. The nut caps do not have anything to do with holding them on. Then I had to use the bottle jack to get the PC high enough to lower the HWH jacks and put a 2x4 under them. Then I could raise it the tire enough to change it. All this took me almost two hours in the heat. At my age I am ready to start letting someone else do this type of thing. So I have decided that I need some type of emergency road service. I have started looking at Coach-Net RV and Good Sam ERS. Do any of you know anything about them or any other service? Help

"PAINT IS THE SAME 2009,10 & 11.  FOR 2012 THERE WILL BE BIG CHANGES!!!!!"

SO Stuart, when do we get to see these new colors and the secret new model?

I just went out to my 2010 PC 2350 full body paint - Umber and check under the hood and the drivers door fame. I did not see any paint codes. Then I got out the four bottles of touch up paint that came with my PC. On the bottles is written "Phoenix Beige #1", "Phoenix Beige #2", "Phoenix Beige #3" and "Phoenix Beige #4". Not much help but in the bag was a sticker which might be one one that should have been put under the hood.  I think that 2009 thru 2011 all had the same paint colors.
The sticker reads:
Phoenix Beige 2009
#1 68U Sand
#2 C21 Woodland Br. Met.
#3 314F5 Brown Met.
#4 357G1 Grey Met.
I don't see and Grey on my motorhome but I do see some black stripes. You can see my PC in Adventures Anywhere, it's the brown one.
I hope your paint shop can makes heads or tails of these codes.

I bet Carol can tell you who makes the backup camera. You just have to wait until next week when the factory reopens.

Sounds like a good deal. It is great for him to have been able to adjust his career that way. Good job.
I wonder if he would make a house call to Maryland? I don't think I could afford the community fee.

    Yes Aimee truck stops sometimes have truck washes but they are not always where you want them when it comes time to wash the motorhome. The other problem is that they tend to use very harsh chemicals to wash with. Back when I was a working man, I came in contact with a lot of truck drivers and when I asked about using the truck stop wash, they all said they would not want to do that to their paint jobs. I know there are some real pretty trucks out there but I don't know if they use the truck stop wash bays.

    Barry I do like your yard stick trick. Now I guess i will have to get a yard stick for the motorhome. What percentage of the car wash bays to you find you can use for the PC?

I don't think this would be possible. The outside wall of the slide out is cut out of the original wall. Since yours is already cut to the smaller size it would be impossible to use the existing wall. You would have to buy a whole new wall and start from there. The cost would be really high to replace the whole wall. But then if you have the money any thing is possible, if not practical.

    Has anyone tried to use a car wash bay to wash their PC?

    Last September while on a trip to Yellowstone my PC got really dirty and their were car wash bays in town. I kept looking at them wondering if I could fit under the wash arm but I could not find any signs giving the max high allowed. Since my PC is on the E-450 the specs say it is 10' 1" high, 2 inches higher than the E-350. I have occasionally seen over sized bays for larger vehicles but these were the standard size. It sure would be nice to be able to use a car wash bay while on trips when it gets really really dirty.

I wash and wax my motorhome using "Gel-Gloss Heavy duty RV Wash & Wax". http://www.gel-glossrv.com/index.php?pageId=393.  I start at the top on the roof by climbing up there and using a long handle brush, then back on the ground I do the sides. I have never needed to hand wax my motorhomes as this stuff leaves a really good shine. There are several products by Gel-gloss including a couple of waxes. Someday I may try the cleaner & wax or the straight wax they sell, but for now I am happy with just washing it and having it wax itself. I can get very lazy sometimes. rolling on the floor

Barry you are welcome. I hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoy ours. Just don't suggest a friend sit in them for a few minutes to try them. I did and they used them all evening while we had to sit in their old bag chairs.

Barry is there a reason you have not fill in the information on your profile? I am just wondering.
