Skipper, your profile says "No" under own PC. If you are still in the ordering stage of before of a new unit, you can option in the dual pane windows vs the single pane windows. If it is already built, you will have to listen to Kermit and go with which ever is already installed.

Hi Shipper and welcome.

You say you are looking at the 3100, but your profile says 2100.

As for dragging the rear on a 3100 only you and your driveway know the answer to that. I have not heard of a lot of complains from other owners dragging the rear. I once knew a lady that would drag the rear of her trailer on her driveway. She ended up putting some boards in the gutter to lift the rear.  The driveway next door has a deep dip and all the trucks and some cars drag.

Before adding to your suspension, I would call and talk to Kermit at the factory. i was thinking about changing my suspension until I talked to him.

Look on the side of your tire for DOT and four digets. The first two are the week of the year and the second two are the year of manufacture. 0510 would be the 5 th week or first week of Feb. The year is 2010. If your tires are less than seven years old and you do not see any cracks over 1/4 inch deep, stop worrying and go enjoy yourself.  ThumbsUp

All four hub caps are just that, hub caps. They all come off using the tire iron to pry them off, just like a hub cap.  Grin

RV tires have an extra amount of oil in the rubber because the manufacture expects them to just sit a lot. When driving the oils come to the suffice to keep the side walls from cracking. Car and truck tires are always on the go, so they do not need all this oil. If there is no cracking on the side walls you should be OK to keep these tires. For Peace of mind you can drive by a tire dealer you trust and have them check your tires. No need to spend money on tires that could go into your gas tank. exactly!

You need to check the air hose by the fill hole. It may be plugged. I use a section of plastic pipe or hose to put over the hole and blow into it. I cannot explain why this works but it has stopped my water from coming back out the fill when going down the road.

This guy does the best write up I have seen on the different ways into Yellowstone NP. I have been in and out all five entrances to the park and agree with what he has to say. I have yet to make it over the whole of the Beartooth Hwy due to snow closing the road from Red Lodge, only did the western half from Cooke City. Some of his other write ups are also very good, so go to his home page and look around.

On the way to the Reunion, you might want to see the "Corn Palace" in Mitchell, SD, Wall drug and the bad lands near Wall, SD, Mount Rushmore and Custer state park in the Black Hills. Also just inside WY is Devils tower. There are two campgrounds, we stayed at the KOA with the view of the tower. It is about one hour to Gillette and the reunion. Good place to stay the night before and fill/empty your tanks.

"The only thing is that you have to have electric to open the valves but I can deal with that...."

They should run on the house battery. You do not need to be plugged in to electric. Just thought you would like to know.

I for one do not like using the maserator as it is slow and noisy. I prefer the 3" hose.

Bagpiper at a Funeral.

As a bagpiper, I play many gigs.  Recently I was asked by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless man. He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a pauper's cemetery in the back country.   
 
As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.  I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight. There were only the diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in
place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play. The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around.
 
I played out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.
I played like I've never played before for this homeless man.
And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes and started for my car.  Though my head hung low, my heart was full.
 
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I never seen nothing like that before and I've been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."

Bed, Bath and Beyond has the memory form toppers. Twin size fits the long bed.
823  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Shower Pan on: February 21, 2013, 08:31:07 am
When we picked up our 2350, I had the factory install two towel bars in the shower on the drivers side wall. One above the other. The way I look at it, there are hundreds of screws used to make the PC, so what difference does eight more screws make. I also asked for a wooden board above the shower door top. I bought plastic over the door hooks and placed them over this board on the outside. When we took a shower, we hung the towels from the hooks. The last one to shower placed the towels on the towel bars to dry. With the shower door close you could not see the towels and they where out of the very small bathroom space.

Now that we have a 2552, the towel bars and the toilet paper holder are mounted on the back of the sliding bathroom door. The two towel bars, one over the other, are mounted to the left side of the door and the toilet paper holder is to the right side, just under half way up the door. When the door is open, everything is out of the way. When the door is closed the toilet paper is automatically placed in front of you, when you are sitting. LOL

As long as you have water in the heater, you can leave the switch on. Like I said before we leave it on the whole trip.

Thank you Judi. I wanted to make sure that is what I read awhile back before I said anything. Everyone was telling her to make sure the mattress was right side up but not saying how to know.
