It sounds like you seek a means to lift up your rear end.  Am I right?  I am surprised the air bags didn't lift the rear for you.

From day one, our 2007 2350 has been a bit low in back but not by much, maybe 2" at most, strictly visual, not a mechanical concern.  I don't scrape anything.  I am concerned of raising our rear by any amount for fear of a rougher ride.  For me, the quality of the ride would take priority over a 2" rear lift.

I had considered Sulatic Shackles to make our ride softer in back, but the design seems scary to me and they are pricy too .  I don't feel comfortable, concerned with their reliability, wondering what would happen if they fail.  But they are simple by design and seemingly very effective in offering a softer ride.

Bill BandD,

I would have thought your local Home Depot could special order the parts for you because they are stocked in other Home Depot stores.  They should charge you their standard price and absorb the cost of shipping to your store for local pick-up.  But I never tried that myself to say for certain.

The main thing I learn is that it is usually operator error.
Ain't that the truth!

Barry-Sue, where did you buy the chassis saver?

Great post!

The suspension upgrades benefit all PCs, but especially the 2007 and older chassis.  The upgrades are most beneficial for the 2007 and older "E350" chassis because they never came with a rear stabilizer bar to begin with.  Just adding a heavy duty rear stabilizer bar alone to an older E350 will do miracles.

Hi BadBob,

I am glad you are asking your "golf club" questions here too.  Just to keep it all together for you, here is my input again.

If I recalled correctly, you are interested in a double bed for a couple instead of single beds.  If so, I think the brand new "Not Yet Documented" model 2450 (a 2350 plus one foot) will provide you with the golf club storage you seek.  As Carol mentioned, you may be able to store your clubs indoors inside in a pantry/closet, or outside in the under-bed storage compartment.  If you request the optional longer double bed to benefit easier entry into the bed, it should increase the outdoor storage compartment by one more foot.  If you do not get the optional slide-out, you'll get a super-sized outdoor storage compartment along with a wider indoor pantry/closet, both ideal for golf clubs.  The outdoor storage compartment will get larger yet because I believe the under-bed furnace is then located on the driver side like we have with our no-slide 2350.  Another benefit with the furnace on the driver side is that you gain an extra kitchen galley drawer, otherwise sacrificed for a furnace duct.

More storage or more floor is a notable trade-off regarding a slide-out in a 2350 or 2450.

You would need to confirm all this with the factory.  Just give them a call.

I believe you and I have the same Zone Defense system with 5" monitor.  I could never find the microphone in back by the camera and so maybe you too have sound.  I would like to know if you raise the volume on your monitor, if you hear people talking behind your rig.

The sound went out on our 2007 PC and I really don't know what the problem is.  I thought if I could find the microphone in back, the opening might be clogged with a spider's nest or something similar, but I could never find the microphone back there to begin with.  It was nice to have sound, and would be nice to get it working again.

Ditto, And Ditto.

And God Bless Our Troops, and Our Country......It must be getting harder for him to bless our country, so we need to pray more diligently for that.

Remove the generator cover (outside) and look for a circuit breaker. It could be tripped.
Tom is right-on.  This happens to me once every second or third year after taking out our rig from long term storage.

There is a reset switch/breaker right on the generator itself.  Once reset, all is well for another 2-3 years.  I don't know why it happens.  It just does.  No harm.
70  Main Forum / General Discussion / Converting Fluorescent To LED Just By Changing Bulbs on: May 20, 2014, 05:45:13 pm
Hi All,

I was wondering if there are LED bulbs available that are direct replacements for the fluorescent light bulbs in our PC.  I am not even sure replacements exist for our specific 12V light fixtures.  I really don't want to change the fixtures, just the bulbs.  I am hoping to have equivalent lumens and reduce power consumption to use our interior lighting more generously.  I also hope to change the ambiance from the fluorescent blue to a soft-white as some LEDs bulbs advertise.

In my research, I found something that "might" work, but is over $16 per light bulb +shipping, and not sure of the brightness and color tone.  The website states it uses 5.8 watts which is surprisingly high for LED lighting.  I think the fluorescent tubes are 8 watts.

Has anyone here researched this?  Anyone try these?  All experience is welcomed.

It appears to be one of those cheap $40 tow bars sold at auto parts stores.  I was told from a store manager that those tow bars are most often bought by people to transport vehicles one way from USA into Central & South America.  The tow vehicle switches hands multiple times before reaching it's final destination.  At that point the tow bar gets tossed.

Your picture demonstrates one risk in using such a bar.....Ouch!

I apparently have an earlier design.

My Liberty's Roadmaster bracket hardware is detailed HERE.  My brackets have the holes you and ragoodsp  mention for the cable attachment of which I use the short ones as instructed in that diagram.  I just don't know if my main safety cables are long enough for direct-connect if reducing my wrap around the tow bar one less time.

Historically when I disconnect the Liberty from the tow bar, I disconnect everything except the two short safety cables.  They simply hang down below the front bumper, still quite high up off the ground as not to worry about them interfering with anything.  I leave them hang to keep it simple when it's time to head to the next destination with the PC.

ragoodsp, I do utilize mini safety cables like these to bridge the area of concern.  If you look real close at my setup, one is suspended just to the left of the lock there.

You do have me wondering if I can eliminate the short ones and hook the long cables all the way to the tow vehicle.  This assuming they are long enough.  If I need just a little extra slack in the safety cables, I could add a link to each.  It would simplify things nicely and as you say, it would be a safer setup.

Thanks for the tip...a "Helpful" for you.

It is quite convenient to plug in one umbilical cord and the entire tow vehicle is electrically ready.
Having power to the tow vehicle battery keeps it in good condition.

I ease the pain with the rest of the setup through the use of super-strong padlocks keyed alike, instead of using these.
Hook-up and unhooking is fairly quick and painless for on-the-move vacationers like us.
The locks are also a deterrent for thieves thinking about our tow vehicle, especially when they see a key in the ignition.
