I stumbled on 10 more and sent via email #11 and #12.

For sure some are not worth consideration, but I leave it all up to you.

Glad you got them, 20 pics in all.  They are not cropped or edited in any way, sent at max-mega-pixel for you.

I got an email stating your email box was full.  I didn't know how many emails made it through.

I emailed you 10 numbered 1 thru 10 with under 10 meg/2 pics each.

Which email made it through?

Hi Aimee,

I sent you a bunch of pictures but not sure if they are good candidates for your intentions.  You choose or delete whatever you like.

Very nice for organizing lots of the little things.

I found the rear storage compartment ideal for this nice 2-person folding table  It's great to have as a primary table under the awning, or as a secondary table if you are able to move a campsite picnic table under the awning.  Either way, this table is great.  We like to place it next to the outside outlet, a nice place for the coffee pot, crock pot, radio, etc.


It has 3-position adjustable legs, this picture shows the low setting.
- Low is ideal for using with camping chairs
- Mid makes a nice extention of a picnic table
- Tall is nice for standing next to, also nice to keep kids and dogs away from things you don't want them to get at.


Here is the tall setting.


We bought ours 4 years ago at a Costco but not sure if they still sell the same model with adjustable legs.  I have recently seen a non-adjustable leg model at Walmart.

Thanks for sharing ragoodsp.  I gave you a "Helpful".  It's nice to have this data available on the forum.

I am sure that one day I will eventually need to refer back to this post.  My old rig had the same thing happen.  Once it started, it all came down within a year looking like bed curtians.  Key is catching it early before it takes off.

Now that you own one, you'll find the Tips And Tricks section most interesting.  People have done nice things to and bought nice things for their PC.  You'll wonder where is a good place to hang a bath towel, or place a garbage can, which type is best and where to get it.  The 2551 is the most popular so you'll benefit a lot when reading through that section.

PCs change from year to year, so the changes I made to our 5 year old rig won't always be directly relative, but I think you'll find application for some.
Some of the things I mentioned are not covered by other people so I thought you might appreciate the link.

I would also like to hear from them.  I too would like to know their mpg,  what is their typical open-road speed, and also if they tow anything.

The Sprinter has always caught my curiosity in fuel efficiency and how owners achieve it.

I wonder if coach manufactures don't include an alignment before the rig leaves the factory because the house is not yet loaded as would be on trips.  It is recommended the alignment be done with full fresh water tank, full gas tank, full propane tank, and all the gear and supplies the owner typically carries.

To get a better alignment yet, appropiate weight can be added where people would sit.  I did a bit of that, placing weights (from an exercise weight set), some extra patio blocks I have, and my heavy tow bar hardware directly behind the driver and passenger seat.  This to more closely represent the two of us sitting up front while in transit.  It may be a bit extreme, but is easy enough to do.  I would think a 300 pound variation (me 185, my wife 115) in the front cab should have some amount of influence on an alignment.  It is something to consider when having your alignment done.

Chassis Saver has the same UV warining.
Hmm, it sure sounds like the same stuff.  Maybe the patent window has past and now it is offered by others under different names.  POR-15 has been around for maybe 20 years.  Maybe it's time.

Denny and Barb,

Call and talk with Kermit.  He might refund you the cost of your alignment.  I seem to recall he did that for someone else who had bought a brand new rig with handling issues.

Back in 2007, I ate the $170 for my alignment.  After spending $67,200 (plus IL sales tax) for a new PC and an additional $3,900 on suspension upgrades to address our 2350's handling issues, what was $170 shrug  I considered it an uneventful expense.  It costs more than that to fill my gas tank.

Thanks for the tip Barry-Sue.

I should give Chassis Saver a try since I aready have worked with POR-15.

One thing I recall about POR-15, it had something to do with exposure to the sun.  It goes on Jet-Black but with UV exposure, it supposely turns cloudy to a mikly gray color.  Given I painted over my POR-15, I'll never see that happen.  Does Chassis Saver state the same UV discoloration?

One thing I noticed working with POR-15 on my pickup truck, and I assume the Chassis Saver would behave similarly.  When I first applied it with a brush on the top surfaces of the frame, a few drips ran down the side.  I had moved on working in another area, later noticing those drips.  They had spread horizontally against gravity as much as a half inch in each direction.  It was quite impressive how POR-15 penetrated the metal like that.

Backing up the point about getting that stuff on your skin.  I did get a little on me.  It was nearly 2 months before my skin shed the last of it.  Good thing it didn't drip on my face.

Prior to applying the POR-15, with the truck's bed off the frame, I banged the frame with a hammer to first get off all loose rust.  Much rust looked like surface-only but after banging, solid-looking material came flying off.  That took two evenings.

That project had me in a boat-load of regret.  But $600 later and all those man hours behind me, it took about 6 months to appreciate the vehicle.  Four years later and all remains well.

Interesting product.  I wonder if it is similar to POR-15 beause they run about the same cost per ounce.  I used POR-15 on my pickup truck frame.  Four Chicago winters later (with all that salt) and it is holding up beautifully.  Though I did apply 2 coats and a top coat of Rustoleum paint.

I really need to do something about the back side of my entry step.  The sheet metal in back has concerning rust.  I can see it well from below and also from the battery tray when slid out.  One more thing to take care of.

Thanks for sharing.

I hear you Tom.  Fix-A-Flat, Slime, whatever.....once you carry it, then comes the flat tire.  Don't carry it and you won't get a flat. Smile

Carrying a compressor that can handle our tires would be a very good idea for even the novice.  Many flats are slower leaks.  You could pump in 80psi (max as stated on tire) to get you to the nearest repair shop "who may plug your tire".  I just had to add that last 5 words in there.   LOL  Just trying to be funny here, but lame at it.
