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."

 Up but I don't know why other than I don't want the cylinder to rust.

Bed, Bath and Beyond has the memory form toppers. Twin size fits the long bed.

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.

does right side up mean that the tag is at the top of the mattress?

Just makes it one less thing to think about in the morning. On before we leave, off when we return. Refer and water heater at the same time. Wife packs refer night before.

We normally stay in campgrounds with full hookups and in the summer drive with the roof A/C on using the generator. The generator also runs the electric water heater and the refrigerator. I turn the them both on the night before we leave home while the PC is still plugged into the house. I turn them both off when we get back home. I only turn the gas on the water heater to test and clean it every now and then,  It seems we don't need the gas part of the water heater to keep hot water. Since I am paying for the electric at the campsite, why burn my propane? If I dry camped, which is very rare, I guess I would have to use more propane.

I went over to the coach to take a look, both the door side and frame have magnetized strips. As I shut the door the magnets start to pull the door shut. I can feel a strong pull when the door is about an inch from being closed. I also checked it with a non-stainless tool.


Our is the same as George's.
