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.

Twins work on both beds. A specail fitted sheets for the short bed (drivers side) is nice but a regular twin bed sheet works for the long bed (passengers side). The short bed is about 2 inches short of the twin.

Some times it is good to be first, but this is definitely not one of those times.  pulling hair out

I hope the repairman gets there before you have to leave the campground. There There

I stand corrected. Sorry.

When I bought my 2350, I had the factory use the E450 instead of the E350. Much better choice for carrying the load. Only about one MPG less due to the larger van. I would think the cost of helper springs or air bags would go a long way toward paying for the upgrade. Not much help if you already have the PC.

Hi Aimee,

    PCs don't have rear end sag. If you are talking about the jacks to level it, they are optional but very useful. The Ford comes with anti-sway bars  but some people like a heavier bar to control the swaying when semi trucks pass you. I don't think my 2552 needs additional sway control. I just drive so fast that the trucks can't pass me.  LOL

    I have put the new stainless Bilstein shocks on the front and rear to firm up the bounce and make it more like a sports car. Are they needed, NO, but I like them.

I just came in from washing the front of my PC. I used a brush on an 8 foot pole. I used wash and wax. The bottom half of the top has the 3M plastic protector on it, so it does not need waxing. For the top half wash and wax will have to do.  Grin

When we had a 2350, we had the factory put two bath towel bars on the drivers side wall. Took the towels down while showering then put them back. Work for us.

We had the same problem while traveling in Florida.  Called Norcold.  They shipped a new door to the nearest repair shop.  The shop replaced the door, all at no cost to us.  Thumbs up to Norcold for customer service, but a thumbs down for design.

Ditto from me, two doors in two different motorhomes.

I have not had any problems with my tires but I don't have very many miles on them yet.
What is the date on your tires? The date can be found stamped on the side of the tire after the DOT "nn" "nn". The first "nn" is the week of the year and the second "nn" is the year.
821  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Euro Chair - sliding assistance needed on: May 17, 2013, 11:42:32 am
I just ran out and looked at my chair. It has a  black plastic ring, like Bob said, on the floor that runs through six ball bearing clamps which are attached to a wood base ring. We have never seen any scratch marks on the floor from sliding the chair. But we have the older fake stone look floor, not the wood look. I would guess one could remove the plastic ring and clamps in a couple of minutes. Then get six wheels and install them into the wood ring. One would still have to tie down the chair for travel.

The switch in my 2012 2552 is in the bathroom on the wall by the wardrobe and back window.

Just under the helpful count it says "Mark helpful". Just click one time on that.

The problem we found here in Maryland was that the sun's heat is already inside the vehicle by the time the shades are trying to reflect it back outside. I have not seen this type of shade in years. It may work in a cooler area but not so well here. The outside shades that Amanda sold are black and they seem to keep the heat on the outside of our PC. Amanda sold them to me for $400. Ordering them direct might be cheaper. I have tried the white cover that Camping World sells and it did a nice job of keeping the heat out but it glowed a nice off white at night if there are any outside lights. I use the black shades.

Ron, any shade will work if you keep your car in the garage.

Hi Ron,

    I have seen clear/white plastic vinyl bumpers in Home Depot next to the felt ones. They seem like they would not be effected by the rain like felt might be. I have used them inside my PC to stop cabinet doors from hitting walls and the toilet, but have not used them outside yet.
