That is a tough one.  3M has a super product specifically for adhesive removing (it is labeled exactly that)  that you can purchase at and automobile parts store.  It is like $12.00 for the aerosol can and it removes any and all adhesive I have ever sprayed it on.  The issue is you would have to depend on the spray actually soaking under the laminate for it to do its job, not sure you are going to be able to accomplish that task?  Hate to say it but it might be cheaper and easier to order another flip up from PC and hope that one does not get the sags as well.   Perhaps in the future you might consider leaving it up when you know hot weather is coming?

Definitely no change in performance that I can be honest, I think I have lost at least a  few 10ths of MPG according to my Scangage.

Sure sounds like a loose fitting under there somewhere and the extra PSI from the city water side is causing it to really leak.....

Frecklestweety...I am not a big fan of CW and find that they run high from the price perspective but to be honest I do not think $450 is out of line.  If you have the dollars I would invest in front shocks as well, the weight on the front end of the E-450 takes its toll on the front end.  I might suggest you all so check all other fluid change schedules....I just changed all of my fluids on my 2012...... transmission, radiator, and rear end simply because of the time elapsed and  not mileage (14,000). My vehicle sits out all winter so temperature change causes moisture build up and lubricant fatigue.  best of luck

Dale and Cindy...Carol is right on the mark with her temperature control knob theory.  Turn it to blue and I bet it comes right on.

Dale and Cindy....Sometime post the 2012 model year that new switching system was installed.  I wish I had that set up on my 2012!   The old gravity fill approach is fine but having the ability to fill the storage tank at the turn of a knob is very convenient.  I am sure Kermit is correct in that the bypass valve just must have some "leak by" because of poor design or poor quality?  You might try cutting the water pressure back some to see if that makes a difference?  65-70 pounds is a lot of pressure on a little plastic valve.  Good luck with the installation of your new valve.   Ron G.

bruce...I am sorry but I have no quick and easy solution. I think I would try a very light marine gel coat restorer or very fine rubbing compound.  Best of luck I do not envy the work your are faced with.

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 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
