Had same problem on previous PC.  Turned out to be loose connection where camera cable connects to cable that runs from back to camera.

To All,
     I have tried to send a picture and a couple of pictures and it always states file too large.  So if anyone would like to see the new curtains, give me an e-mail address and will send them to you.
     If anyone can tell me why I cannot send a picture out of my photo file without it being too large, would appreciate the feedback.

Oh so nice to hear I-80 is all good now west of Reno down that steep grade.  It was so bad 7 years ago, I swore I would never drive it again until repaired.  I didn't want to pay another $300 toll.

Well had 2010 2551 mh winterized and asked my RV service to check on my tires.  As I see it they were mfg. 0808 so they are six yrs old. He said they show very slight dry rot and will pass inspection in the spring.  They have plenty of tread and seem ok but I am thinking that it is time to get new tires.  I know there has been many discussions on this topic and really up to the individual to make the decision on what to do.    So for safety sake do you think it is time to get new and would like to get Michelin's and my rv service said they can get them. Of course my tires were not on the recall as mentioned in other forum discussions.
The next thing is coach batteries and they are the original ones. They are so hard to read the water level and was wondering if they are replaced as to what is a better battery.  My MH will be stored in Pole Barn and I have been told you can leave it plugged in all the time to keep the batteries charged but afraid they could be overcharged.  I keep little nite lites on to use some of the power but not sure what is right.  Any suggestions on the questions??? 
This forum has always been so helpful.
So sorry I missed the reunion. Looking forward to next year. Already in the calendar.

I hope you called the factory as this should be covered under your warranty.

What Tom says above.....

Hi Ron,

The tall cabinet between the kitchen counter and the bed is PC's typical slide-out pantry.  Measures about 13 inches wide from the edge of the counter to the side of the wardrobe that hangs over the foot of the bed.  The usable inside width of the shelves is only 6 inches.  Despite the loss of space due to the slide-out mechanism, I find it a good spot for things like bleach, laundry and dishwasher detergent, generator oil, WD-40, spare shampoo, vinegar, Calgon, etc.  Basically things that I don't want to spill but won't be needing to access all the time.

The tall cabinet between the dinette and the frig is about 12 inches wide, with usable inside space of a little over 10 inches since there is no slide-out. 

You are correct that there are two cabinets.  The taller one on the bottom is tall and wide enough for a guitar in a hard case, plus room on the floor for hiking boots.  I put hooks on the inside walls up high and hang jackets and a heavier coat in there, and that helps cushion the guitar from moving around.  I suppose a golfer might find that a good spot for golf clubs!

The smaller cabinet above that also does not have a slide-out, so has that nice interior width.  I was worried that it was going to be a pain to reach things in the back but it hasn't been a problem.  I put extra paper products and light-weight cleaning products in there, and it is easy to stack them and keep them fairly neat and accessible.

Not sure what you mean by the measurement of the "vertical stlle framing pieces".  The slide-out pantry is just under four feet high, then you lose some of that space due to the slide-out mechanism.  The tall cabinet on the bottom, next to the frig, is four feet two inches, top to floor.  The cabinet above that is two feet high.  Adjustable shelving might be nice here, depending what people want to store.

Let me know if you have any other questions.  ThumbsUp

Ron, Holly,

We came home from the Reunion westbound across I80, and the road is just fine.  Smooth, feels brand new all the way.  Couldn't *see* anything due to smoke from a huge fire around Grass Valley, I think.

They used to have really fun big yellow signs for truckers warning them of the approaching road curves and slopes...  Something like "Upgrade 1/2 mile, let 'er drift".  They're all gone now.

I would have to agree 100% with Bob,  in the large picture the RV market is just not significant enough for Ford and they will force the larger Class C's to utilize the F series,  they will "tweak" the Transit around the edges by increasing spring ratings, etc and they will hold onto their market share.    I do not see even their new twin turbo Ecoboost V-6  being strong enough to move 14,000 lbs. down the road,   perhaps a diesel plant would work fine but extending a stamped frame to  handle a 31 foot coach is not going to be easy to accomplish, why do you think Mercedes does not allow their chassis to be extended or cut into?  I am sure we are going to see some very nifty European influenced small coaches based on both the transit and Promaster Dodge in the coming years and that is great for the industry in general.

Several of the public service, EMS, fire etc around here have went to F series chassis for their "box" units. Speaking to a couple of the drivers the last couple weeks, they don't like the extra length at all, but like the cab room. Both these folks work for cities that are glued to Ford chassis for some reason for all their public safety vehicles. Could be both have BIG Ford dealers in them make a difference?? Who knows.....

Our local small city has went to Chevy/GMC 4500 series in their ambulances etc. They like them better than the E series they used to always get. Less maintenance and repairs, more power, more cab room.

Wonder if Phoenix has looked at the 35-4500 GM van chassis lately, or at all???
