I'm having a horrible time finding tires around here. After a few calls to Michelin, their requirement to have a competitor's tires paid for is that the tires be LT rated, Load range E, a minimum speed rating of R and be replaced by a Michelin dealer. A few years ago I had to replace the Michelin LT tires on our old 2350 and found a dealer that could do it in Scott's Bluff, NE. He recommended Toyo LT225/75R16/E/S. I took his advice and found the Toyo tires very satisfactory. I'll be looking into that at a dealer today.

Funny thing about Michelin's recommendations is that they said the XPS Rib was a suitable replacement. However, that tire is Q rated and the Michelin site clearly says it is not suitable for use on our E450 2552.

Other Michelin recommendations are the Uniroyal Laredo HD/H and BF Goodrich's Commercial TA All season, both of which are speed rated Q. Strange; a competitor's Q rated tires are not suitable but a Michelin company's Q rated tires are. Probably because Uniroyal and BF Goodrich are Michelin companies.

What a pita.

If you have dual 12 volt "House" batteries rather than dual 6 volters, one of them can replace a bad Chassis battery in a pinch. A pita but it will get you going.

When running the heat strip, set the fan to low. You'll feel the heat then. The air volume when running on high defeats the heating ability of the strip.

I'd get as far away from them as fast as I could with no apologies.

Not recently but I had a similar problem in a MH I had years ago. I drilled a hole in the middle of the crack and squirted expanding foam into it. After the foam stopped expanding and solidified, I cut off what had come back out of the hole, roughed up the pan along the crack with 120 grit sandpaper and applied epoxy soaked fiberglass mat. Lastly, I painted the pan with white Interlux Bilgecoat. The fix was all but invisible and the pan was very solid after that.

All my house windows are also Thermopane. But they don't fog.

I've had both in a number motorhomes. All the dual pane windows fogged at some point and, if given the choice, I won't have them again.

Tom,
The 6 volt batteries are connected to each other in series, providing 12 volts to the chassis.
The 12 volt batteries are connected to each other in parallel, providing 12 volts to the chassis.
Consequently, the breakers and fuses should be the same.

We just got our recall letter. When I can dig the beast out, off to the dealer we will go.

Stay tuned to the for sale category. We may be considering a sale after we find out more about a medical decision.

Living just off Rt 6 exit 34 (1st west of the Milford exit), we've travelled Rt 6 many times. It's a smart decision because 84 in Potholevania is pretty bad in some sections. You may want to think of staying at the Promised Land campground. GradyGal can give you information about that.
If you decide to stay there, let us know when it'll be. If we're in town, we'll bring a bottle of wine to you for a short visit.

Great. We'll look forward to it.
Safe travels.
