Replying to all your posts, especially on interior enhancements.....I Love Them!  I really enjoy interior creativity, and you've done some real nice things that have me thinking if we could benefit from a few of them.

Thanks for sharing!

About your comments on how the factory is cooperative with an owner of a 6 year old model, making available such doors and what-not, to help the owner with their ideas on interior enhancements.  How do we explain that to someone outside the PC family?  They don't believe me when I share such stories.

I do wonder how beneficial a Bluray would be for a smaller 26" LCD as we have in our PC.  At home on the 52" LCD, I'd think it more beneficial.  But I have yet to see a Bluray on anything, so.....why did I even comment here?  LOL

I agree with you bigbadjc.  The Executive has much to be desired for a motor home application.  The trouble is that there is much to setup to make it user friendly.  But after you power-down the invertor, all the user settings go away.  So everyone ends up using the thing without presettings which becomes cumbersome.  If only it retained the user settings, then I think it would have better reviews.  If mine ever dies, I would get a Samsung.  Like you say, people seem to like it much better.

BTW: I also agree with you on the DVD tray.  Pry it open with a thin butter knife while pressing the "Open" button.  It may only need exercising.  One of my computer drives suffers the same.  It just needs more active use.  I forgot all about that.  Great tip!

Hi Paula, It is for "Heated Mirrors".  Leave it turned off except if ice has formed on the outside mirrors.

It sounds like the door in the DVD player is simply jammed with a DVD that bounced around and jumped out of the circular indent of the tray.  Remove the unit from the RV and take off the cover by removing the screws that hold it on.  See if there is a DVD inside.  If so, use a small poker to move the DVD back into proper position in the tray.  Then plug the unit into an outlet and see if the door opens.

Don't be afraid to open the cover of the player.  As long as you don't have it plugged in, you are safe.  Once plugged in, just work the controls.  Hopefully you can fix it rather than replace it.  If it's truely broken, what harm can you do by trying to repair it?

I changed mine too.  I am now Northern Illinois.  I also added a signature picture.

NLK, With your personal circumstances, I surely understand.

Tom, I am right there with you, though I understand others hiding such information about themselves.

My screen name is my real name.  My age and location are my real ones.  I am open about who I am as it helps me to be on my best behavior with the world.  And that is what my creator expects of me anyway.  I am careful not to disclose things like when I am on a trip so some thief doesn't look up my home address and pay a visit.

Most interneters  are not comfortable disclosing such information.  With all the ways of doing crimes like identity theft, I can understand.  It is very easy to look up individuals by name, age, and region.  It doesn't take much to get a house address and phone number using so little given information.

I will PM you.

Hopefully someone local can show you theirs.

For reference, here is a used 2007 2551, low miles, fully optioned, located in Michigan:  CLICK HERE.  It is the smallest Cruiser made on the heavier duty E450 chassis, providing extra load capability.

Speaking from experience with a different brand motorhome.  Try using a polishing compound and see if the streaks go away.  If they do, then wax it.

If you are real good hikers, I feel the all day hike to Lake Solitude is the best day hike in the park.  The trail takes you to the back side of Grand Teton, up to a high altitude lake where the view is very pretty.  At the beginning of the hike, there is a boat ride which saves time.  Take it back as well to save more time and energy.

There is a gondola in Teton Village to the top of Rendesvez Mountian.  Take your jackets with you regardless of the heat because it's always cold up there.  If you like to backpack, continue from there, making your way back through Death Canyon to the main valley.  It's an easy 2 night backpack hike, and very agressive overnight hike.  That was our most beautiful experience doing two nights.  We felt like we were in the movie, The Sound Of Music with the views and flowers everywhere.

I just now went down in the garage and checked my toilet seal.  It's in great shape showing no sign of deterioration.  I don't think my bleach process damaged it.

Are you sure your black toilet seal needs to be replaced or simply cleaned?  Open the toilet flusher and wipe the underside of the black seal with a paper towel soaked in Windex.  If the towel gets blackened severely, the black rubber may have suffered.  If the towel shows black dirt, maybe the seal only needed a good cleaning to provide a good seal once again.

What I am about to share next might be applicable to the toilet seal.

I learned many years ago, when windshield wiper blades get weathered then streak the window, you can extend their life by cleaning the oxidation off the rubber using a tissue soaked with laquer thinner.  An extreme amount of pure black material comes off quick and easy.  It takes 3 or more tissues to clean both wiper blades completely.  When done, the wiper blades do a fine job for a while longer.

Maybe cleaning the black toilet seal with laquer thinner will achieve the same.  It's worth a try before you replace it, right?

I use one bottle of laundry bleach to treat the entire waste system.  Years ago bleach was sold by the gallon with 5% solution, now maybe 3 quarts at 6% solution.  I pour more in the black tank being bigger at 35 gallons, and it's the worse of the two.  My grey is only 23 gallons.

My RV smells like fresh laundry when done....Smile
