My feeling is the majority of Class C's going down the road are running at max or over weight.   A triple slide unit over 30' loaded with supplies for a family has to be way over max.  All the more reason to move to the Ram 4500/5500 or Ford F-450/550 chassis I do think.    Ths, Ron G.

Tom:   I have not been to Lakewood Campground in 25 years!   Has it changed at all?  I recall they use to come around every morning selling the greatest honey dipped donuts, my kids still talk about them.  Beautiful campground.  Hope it is not all built up?   have fun, be safe.  Ron G.

The twin beds in my 3100 always seem to move around a lot.  I tried anti slip paint, etc. and nothing seemed to keep them in place.  I recently tried some 2" 3M anti slip grit tape.  I cut three 4' strips and merely peeled and stuck them on the particle board under the mattresses.  It works extremely well in keeping the mattresses where they are suppose to be.  the 3M product is not  cheap but if it works what the heck!

I bet he is a super guy who is more than willing to make a trip anywhere!   they can sure drive you crazy but are one super dog.  One of these days I might persuade my wife that we still have the energy to keep up with a Weim.

The E series lights are OK Tom especially with Silverstar upgraded bulbs, I just like a little fill in light down low that a nice set of driving lights would supply.   Thanks

Sparky:

First and foremost I am glad you are home safe and sound!  It sure sounds and looks like you had a super trip.  Form the image it looks like a Weimaraner's head spotting a black bear....Is it in fact a Weim and how old is he/she?   We have had three Weims spanning over 32 years, we lost our last girl nearly 3 years ago and I am getting the itch again.  Thanks

Thanks Ron, I kind of expected I would have to "make do" with some off the shelf model that comes close.  Ron G.

I have searched low and high for OEM lights that would fit in the cut outs in the lower cowl of my E-450.  I can not find anything.  Has anyone found what light would fit nicely into those cut outs?   I know I could use some stock lights but I would love to maintain the nice look and fit.  I have not called PC but I assumed that cowl was stock Ford?  (it is different than the F series I know)  Any help would be appreciated.  Thanks, Ron G.

Interesting news feed yesterday really threw some "beef"on the table for Ford and their negotiations with the labor union.....Ford is moving production of the F-650 and 750 out of Mexico to Ohio where 1400 jobs will now be saved as the plant was scheduled to be shuttered or cut back significantly because of the slow down in small car sales.  Coincidently,  the E-cutaway chassis' are made at that plant.  Not to jump to conclusions but I would think the consolidation of mid size truck chassis production to one plant could indicate the E series will be kept around for longer than 2020?

Ron D. and others.....I have been chatting of late with individuals in the commercial vehicle business as well as the RV industry and both are saying the demand for the E chassis had not lessoned at all and  perhaps have increased a fair amount , they all say there are just no good alternatives at this particular time to this durable and tried E chassis.   It will be interesting to see if perhaps Workhorse/GM steps back into the market aggressively and fills the vacuum or will Ford reconsider their 2020 shut down schedule?  While many like the F-550 chassis there are drawbacks with such a long chassis.  it will be interesting to see where it all goes, Kermit does not seem to concerned and is sure sticking with the E's until the end. thanks

 Good feedback Gents.  The Ford Transit will not be a viable option for my application.  Lets face it the turning radius on the E-450 is horrible so  the F-550 would most likely  be even worse!  Guess I will just have to get myself into and M2 Freightliner!( my wife will never let that happen)

I posted some time ago on the subject of offering a new chassis for PC's,  did not get much reaction from forum readers so perhaps everyone is very content with the E series?   Personally, I would love to see Phoenix offer either the Ram 5500 or Ford F-550, better ride, quite cab, more cab room,  better handling, and much higher GCVW.  Diesel option would be great and allow a little longer coach like the 33'7" Born Free. What do you all think?    Thanks

Not that familar with the Interstate 6 volts but I did have sme Trojan 6 volt that had that lever set up for the caps and you did have to keep and eye on the levels.  With that said I did have and 08 Grand Cherokee  diesel that had a large battery that had removal caps, I topped it off (did not overfill) and in less than a week it overflowed and the acid took out the control module.  Service guy said the battery was maintenance free and despite the fact the caps came off water was never to be added, I learned a hard lesson.
