Do you mean the Magna Shade magnets? 
When we needed to remove them from our previous rig we called the people at (336-753-0905) and they explained how to remove the magnets and sent us new stickers to put them on the new windshield.
The removal procedure was fairly easy by slipping a thin bladed putty knife between the magnets and the windshield.

We have Direct TV and take our receiver from home for use in the PC.  As Tom said you lose your local programing when traveling.  We generally stay in one place for a week or so, once set up we call Direct  TV, customer service and provide our location to receive the local programing. This past winter I think we called 4 or 5 times. Depending on the techs experience level they may not know what your talking about so you may have to push them to ask for help. One time this winter I called to change and they apologized, thinking I was having a technical issue and gave me 3 months of HBO free for the inconvience. Surprisingly they don't charge for the location changes.
We use a carry out dish and not all of there receivers are compatible with it, I don't know if this is an issue with the fixed dishes.
Almost forgot there are setting changes that you have to make to the receiver, this is done both when you take the dish out to be used with the portable and when it's returned to the house.  Customer service walked me through the steps which are straight forward.

I have just installed the blue ox Trac bar and hope this at least helps my swaying with the big semis.  I leave next week for phoenix factory and then on to Michigan and Canada.  Thank you all for your thoughts.  Does anyone know if phoenix is having their fall rally in Washington  this fall?

Kate,   I'm really anxious to keep up with your Tiny House/Office project.   Your plan for the 2100 sounds great.   I wish you much success as you move forward.

Nicki,  Could you include me when you send the explanation and pictures of your kitchen mods?  I'd love to see your ideas.

Sent an E-mail, Nicki. And good to know re. the balance: the sewing table is going to store my cheap $50 Brother machine (thanks for the $150 discount, Amazon!) and not the fancy Husqvarna, so the only thing permanently stored in the desk/eating table wouldn't be that heavy. Do the Euro chairs have some ballast, or are they lightweight too? Maybe I could do a yarn cabinet as well...

Thanks, Paul! Hopefully in a year, anyway.

Oh, another silly question: custom fabrics for upholstery? I already know hickory cabinets (because small vehicle = light furnishings), but the patterns look too busy to me so far. Maybe one will grow on me.

Thanks for the input. Very helpful. No Safelite here. I live in a small town 3 hours from Denver so have to deal with what is available. They stock nothing and order on an as needed basis. Glad the glare shield was mention or one without would have been ordered.  What I did learn is that the E-350 chassis has different vehicles built on it and thus, different windshields. The minute we drove up, he said, "Oh, you have the Blah Blah model." You can tell I didn't even pay attention to the model. Also, this company only does inside their shop so PC had to fit. So glad it is short compared to other motorhomes.

Will let you know if I think the replacement is as good as or better than replacement.

My next problem...
We have the magic screens so I need to get the magnets off the old windshield and figure out how to put them on the new one. Super glue maybe?

I am a "go for it" girl. I drove my station wagon towing a 24' travel trailer all over the US with just my two kids. That husband would join for a week here or there, but was not in love with the open road and living in the woods. I picked up the PC in Elkhart and drove it 1,200 back home alone. Hubby had a conflict. I do sit on a 1" cushion to put me at a more comfortable height. Other then that no problems driving the PC. When I travel in it alone, I use the table as a bed and us a TV tray at the couch. Lived in it for 3 weeks when helping my daughter after a c-section baby. So I think making the table area the bed you could raise it up to bottom of window with a ton of storage under and then your couch/table/desk on the other side. Have you sen the tables that flip out of a wall cabinet? Stay aware that you need to keep the weight balanced so if you put a "ton" of heavy storage under a couch/bed, you would want equal weight on the other side. The PC factory could make sure you stay balanced. I have never had ours weighed, but others on the forum have and they have each tire weighed separate. You can look for that thread.

I will put together an explanation and photos of modifications I did in the kitchen. Email me directly so I can send it to you. I have not mastered uploading photos to this forum--even though there is an excellent thread on that as well.

I think you can do that but you will lose your local channels when you travel out of your area. The locals are beamed to just your area. You will not get the local channels where you are traveling into.
It does not cost any thing to try it at home, so go for it.

Kate, for what it worth.....I think what you are planning to do is more than cool!   I wish I could have  done something like that when I was your age but it wasn't the nature of my job to do it.    GO FOR IT!

I have Direct TV in my home HDTV receiver with DVR.  We just updated the Samsung TV in our 2013 2910 T PC to a Samsung  smart TV and had it mounted on a wall bracket in order to have access to the HDMI inputs, usb and ethernet connections.  Is it possible to just take the HD receiver from home and use it in the RV connected to the satellite dish (Direct TV only) installed at the factory.  We previously tried to use direct tv with a standard receiver but this was before our home installation (there was no home account to tie it to) and had to go through a commercial account.  They claimed this was for RV's but unfortunately that experience was expensive and a nightmare. Any suggestions and or information would be appreciated.
