I travel at approx. 65MPH most of the time.   Might bump up to 70 if the traffic is really moving but never over 70.

Recall done, no difference that I can tell.  No change in MPG.

Sarz....Going to be differing opinions on the jack question I am sure....Having had two PC's I would not be without them but if the dollars are a concern I can see why you might skip the jacks.  Will leave the E-350 question to others, my preference would be to upgrade to the E-450 but if the price is right on the coach you are looking at on the E-350 I would not worry to much about the CCC.  You will get a much rougher ride in the smaller coaches (2400,2350) based on the E-450 so everything is a trade off I would say.  best of luck.

I have been told that because the windshield is now such a very integral part of the total structure of the vehicle  one should do everything possible to get OEM glass at all cost.  There is a very big difference in glass quality and the integrity has to be maintained for air bags, etc to work as effectively as possible.  I honestly do not think that this is smoke and mirrors promoted by the manufacturers but it really makes sense.  IMO.  Ron G.

My coach goes in tomorrow morning, service manager says it will take 1 hour to upload the changes.  I am sure we will see zero change in performance or MPG.  I will let all know of the outcome.

als3rdhand...No answer as to why you are loosing sound but I would not worry about unit removal,  it is all done from the front so the dash is not touched.

Here in NH we have no emissions testing at time of state inspection, we did just have a law change that all motor homes must be inspected in June regardless as to when your birthday is.  I had to have it inspected in Jan. (my birthday) to the tune of $80 and then had to just have it done again in June (another $80) to get the vehicle into cycle with the new law.  The E-450 recall is a software update that changes the settings in the engine control module according to my dealer.  Dealer plugs in and the down load takes place.  Perhaps our MPG will go from 8.7 to 18!!!

LRS....the layout of your Onan maybe   different compared to what people are describing...I just checked mine and the switch/breaker that Ron D. and others are referencing is actually on the right side of the switch that looks like the inside switch...it is down and on the side, it is some what hard to see but look really hard and you will spot it.  I will bet for sure it is off.   best of luck
24  Main Forum / General Discussion / Wireless toad lights on: June 28, 2016, 12:35:54 pm
I have posted before about going the wireless toad lighting route and wanted to give a two year update.  I have a set of eTrailer.com LED wireless lights that I have now used a fair amount and I have to tell you they really are great.  I cut two 6" radius circle pieces of Diamond Shield and placed each on the roof just inside the roof rack rails on my Jeep Trailhawk so the light pads do not scratch the paint (they are suppose to be scratch less but I do not trust the felt material).  I just place the lights on the circles, very strong magnets hold them in place.  The remote transmitter plugs into the PC plug (will have to purchase a four plug to 7 round adapter), turn the light switch on that is on the base of one of the lights and away you go.   8 double A batteries last up to 10 hours of continuous operation.  Lights are up high, my bike rack does not block any lights and I do not have to cut into any Jeep electronics or deal with corrosion of splices , etc in a few years like I always have in other toads. Just my two cents.  Thanks, Ron G

How would you rank the overall E-350/450 cab noise?  Utilize a scale with one (1) being least tolerable to five (5) completely tolerable?

Obviously, every one of us has differing opinions as to what brings enjoyment to our driving experience.  Having had several diesel pushers I can say that I do miss the quite cab vs's the noise and heat that comes from the PC's large V-10 sitting between me and my passenger. I like to listen to Sirius radio and I do not like to listen to classical music coming from "tinny" Ford OEM FedX truck speakers, so a very simple upgrade to Infinity speakers at a cost of $100.oo was worth every cent to me.  Not hearing trucks whizzing by on the expressway or the roar of the Ford downshifting on a hill was worth the $385.00 to me.  When you invest way over $100,000 in a vehicle you should expect a lot and to tolerate anything less than what you expected is sad.  Many competitors of PC including Born Free, Renegade, and Coach House all offer significant insulation packages because their consumers demand such quality.   If my modest investment in insulation/speakers brings my coach comfort level up by nearly 50% I would say it was all worth it.  Until you actually hear the improvement that is gained you do not know what you are missing....Thanks, Ron G.

Moisture entrapment is and should be a concern for all of us and one should do everything possible to ensure there is no water getting in anywhere.  With that said there is not a new car on the road without extensive insulation in the floor, trunk and door areas and the manufacturers still offer and extended rust perforation warranty.  The way the QuieteRide insulation sticks I am not overly worried that water can somehow get under it.  A rubber mat that does not breathe at all may be another story?  I do wonder if PC's unwillingness to do anything inside the door panels may have something to do with Fords rust warranty?

PP...when you get onto the QuietRide site go to AccousticShiled headers, then click on order on line and under Econoline the total kit shows up clearly.  Good luck.  Ron G.

No seat cover solutions but I am sure there are options out there. I do not believe the seat covering material is actually  leather (very few are) and it many senses that is a good thing for repair on the material is very easy if you know what you are doing.   Auto dealers have mobile services that come right to their lots and repair tears, cracking, etc on both artificial leather and real leather.  they match the color perfectly and air brush new color on to the material.   I would go to a car dealer and see when such service is going to be in your area.  Final product is superb.

Sorry Ron D. the Ford logoed plastic wrap for the floor insulation kit that came from QuietSolutions went out yesterday with the recycling!....you might call QuietSolutions and ask them....I do not think placing on top of your  carpet is the right approach, everything I have read states clearly that for any sound absorbing applications the product has to be stuck down and all curves, etc must be rolled tight and edges need to be taped off to get the most effect.
