When you are married to a little Greek woman, you have to follow orders closely. Smile

OK,  RON,  you make a good point there with the cold floor !          My guess is  a lot of us would benefit from your  investigation into this project, but don't want you in trouble with the missus.

We have the power driver seat in our 2100 and the swivel passenger seat. We love the power seat because as we switch drivers it is so much  easier to readjust with each driver trade off. Also, I'm only 5' tall and it can be made higher without an added seat cushion.
 I agree with you.

Adding that I do most of the driving an find it valuable to change my position while driving to extend my time between rests.  Sometimes I like to tilt the seat backward then forward after a while, raise it and then lower it, change it up to keep me less stiff behind the wheel.

I just signed up for a can also,  thanks for the tip.              Ron,  you have access to your rig,  would it be possible to  post a picture of the area I should be lube-ing  /  cleaning ?   (valve)  New to this
gig and still learning the ropes,  as they used to say.    Besides,  you're retired now,  have the time,  and love tutorials !

Ha, ha.  I have no clue yet as to what I will be spraying.  This is a new experience for me.  Hopefully my problem is on the outside the valve assembly with accessible moving parts needing cleaning & lubrication.  If the problem is inside with the rubber seals and sliding valve door, I will likely replace the assembly.

I will post my investigation but not anytime soon.  It's a cold garage floor having a forced air garage furnace mounted to the ceiling (heat rises).  A heated garage floor would have been a much better means to heat our garage.  I won't be crawling around under our PC until March/April.  Most importantly, I have other more pressing wintertime honey-do house projects to get finished now that the holidays are behind us.

Thanks, Sr. Member. Living in Alaska you would know and any other advise on the whole trip would be welcome as we build our itinerary. We just made our ferry reservation yesterday for August 28. A 5% cancel fee until 31 days out. We are departing from Whittier and taking the chance on the rough seas.  We will be in a cabin and requested mid-ship so we should be able to ride out any rough seas. Scheduling did not really allow for the extra time it would take to get to Haines, it didn't save that much money, and you don't get first choice on the best cabins. We spoke with a highly experienced and knowledgeable agent in Juneau who was able to answer all our questions and provide information that is not easily accessed on any web page. Anyone planning on booking any Alaska ferry, do not depend on the internet, call the reservation center. They are in Alaska, highly trained and speak great English! Go figure.

 The agent said many people just show up and get the shock that there is no room and the ferries are fully booked unless someone with the same size vehicle is a no-show. With the Whittier-Billingham ferry only running about every two weeks this time of year you don't wait around for the next one. Their choice is hang around and pray or head back to the open roads. That goes for the local ferries as well.

PS We also have no pet.  If you do this trip with a trip, as someone previously said, the pet must stay in the vehicle and their is an additional $50. You are given access to the vehicle to care/walk the pet, but that is it.  Also, you need health certificates and a shots history. Same for driving through Canada.

Also, I'm only 5' tall and it can be made higher without an added seat cushion.  As to the swivel seat, it is tight in the 2100 because the dinette is right behind it.  But once turned it is my husbands lounge chair when reading and relaxing--but cannot watch TV from it.  Was worth the money for us to have a place for him and an additional chair when company comes calling.

I just bought a 12 oz aerosol can for $18.38 HERE with free shipping.  I don't know if it's the best deal out there, but the best I could find in 10 minutes of research.
