After using a standup paper towel holder for many months, we just purchased a wall mounted one. I mounted it on the side of the range hood with a couple of bolts and nuts. It is at a 90 degree angle from Bob's mount. I did not think about or have to move the light. Just a different way of mounting it.

Your cup holder is not to be found around here. At least I can not find one. If you know where to get one, please let me know.

Really nice job of the mods. Great pictures also. Thank you.

Now I have at least two new project after the third captains chair, we maybe I will start them before it gets here. I really like the electric in the kitchen and the rails on the wings. I have not been able to find the rails anywhere around Maryland. Some of the others I have already done or had PC do them. What is your feeling about the short legs for the table now that you have lived with it for a while? I have two dogs, a 80lbs lab and an oversized German Shepherd at 125 lbs. So floor space is at a premium for us and taking up that much might be a problem, but it does look interesting. I am guessing it could be used as a footrest for both the sofa and the third captains chair, am I right?

Yippee,  Giddy today i ordered my barrel chair replacment. After seeing Ron's pictures, doing some mesuring and looking at all the other chairs as options, I ordered one that matches my captains chairs. I ordered it with both arms but passed on the lumbar support for additional $60.
    The  distance from the air bed when out and the current barrel chair when all the way back against the wall is 7 inches. With the new chair being about 2 inches deeper, I should still have 5 inches to spare. Since we hardly ever use the air bed this should be fine. Currently when watching TV, I sit in the barrel chair and put my feet up on the driver's seats arm rest, which is one of the advantage of having long legs.
    Now I just have to wait about two weeks before the chair gets here.

Thank you Ron for all your write ups and pictures and Thank you Bob M. for starting all this. If you two want to sent any money to my wife to pay for this chair and keep me out of trouble, please feel free to do so.  rolling on the floor

    It is nice to have an understand and forgiving wife.  Hug2

Really nice job.  ThumbsUp Thank you for all the pictures.  I have the OK to order a new chair tomorrow.  cool
How difficult was it getting the old chair out the door and the new chair in? Any tricks, like turning them on their side or on their back?  Help

Remember to explain to your DW that you get to use it sometimes also.

Sorry to be such a pain in the a__! But the only Cruiser we probably see is Bobs 2551 in Quartzsite. The reason for so many question are the articles in different magazines post on the Cruisers home page. (In the press) I realize most of the things I read have probably been addressed. But here goes, the questions are,

Uneven furnace heat they needed adjustable registers. - How uneven can it be in a space that small with four registers. Adjustable registers are about $10 each. add them later if you want.

1800-Watt inverter had DVD hum.- have never tried the dvd on the inverter, always on electric.

No light under cabinet sink.- my 2350 has 9 dual flor. lights, turn them all on and you will be getting your sunglasses out. we have a flor. light over kitchen sink.

The 2552 at Phoenix in stock has no duel pain windows, are the worth adding or just in the bedroom or? - I did not think the duel pain window are worth the money. did not get them.

Shades between driver and living area were hard to close and stiff. - not hard to close, harder to fold when opening them.

The mirror at the stove, what do yall think? Would it be worth taking out? Order it shipped unmounted and see for yourself. it is glued onto the wall.

Thank you all for your patience, I appreciate all your input, billy you need to take a chil pill and wait until you see a PC. Wouldn't want to lose you from stress before you can join our merry little band.  There There

Welcome back Aimee. I hope all has been well with you and that you had a great holiday. It seems like everyone has been on their best behavior. Must be the time of the year.

Billy, the best thing you can do to improve ride, handling and the bouncing when sitting still is to have the Bilstein Heavy duty shocks put on your motorhome, IMHO. I got mine from eshocks.com. The Ford shocks are not very strong.

The wingman comes on the new antennas as standard. Between the off the air and the cable at most campgrounds, I do not feel the need for sat. TV. My last motorhome had it and when I parked at a campground the most important thing was not to be under any trees or near anything that would block the sat. Now I don't worry about it, I  park where I want.

 Welcome Al B. Hope you enjoy your new PC and this forum. Both are great.  Yahoo!

In your profile there is a location field that gives all of us an idea where you are from. It would be nice if you entered it. It is kept as a general area or even just saying "on the road full timing".   Wink

It is a 7 way round plug on the rear.

Our shower drains just fine as long as I park with the drain side down or level.
The screen door is great. I wonder why all the motorhomes don't come with this sliding screen door.  ThumbsUp

Thank you Bob. I just went out to the motorhome and sure enough the LP detector is also for carbon monoxide. It is made by Atwood. I know I should have called Stuart, as he would have know about this. On my 2350 it is down by the floor on the side of the bed, in the corner between the bed and the bathroom door. Everything I have read about carbon monoxide detectors says that they should be mounted up high on the wall or on the ceiling.

    Yesterday I ordered a digital carbon monoxide model by Atwood. It should be here next week sometime as it is coming all the way across the country. I think I will go ahead and install it on the ceiling either up in front of the a/c or over the rear bed. The digital display tells you how much carbon monoxide is present rather than waiting for it to accumulate until it sets off the alarm. I probably will not check it like I should but it will still sound the alarm when needed. It is nice to know I can use it both ways.

Again thank you for your help.

Ron, I am holding my breath for part 2. No pressure.

My front seats did not come with a lumbar support system. Is the lumbar support something you added for this seat or do your front seats also have it?

You do know you are getting me in trouble with my wife. "How much can you add to this motorhome?" she said.    rolling on the floor

Merry Christmas to one and all.

While waiting for the big Christmas dinner I was watching RVTV. They were talking about carbon monoxide detectors. I did not recall seeing one in my PC2350. I went out to the motorhome and can not find one. I am wondering why PC did not install one and if maybe my motorhome was just missed. Do you have a carbon monoxide detector in your motorhome? Was it installed by PC or you? Does anyone have a recomendation on which band/model is best? I understand it should be made for RVs.

Like I said "works sometimes". Sometimes it don't. Just hope you never have to do it for real, which is most likley the case.

Hey Tom - I guess what I meant to say is "What if one or both valves fail?"  not the pump itself.

Bob has the correct procedure for winterizing the values, just be sure you use RV anti-freeze and not windshield washer or automotive anti-freeze. They are different and can do damage to the seals. If your values will not open with the electric button, first check to make sure the house batteries are turned on (the switch by the side door) and charged. You can try sliding under the rear and manully put the valves open, works sometimes. If they are frozen, use a hair dryer on them, also works sometimes.
