Some people may not be aware that you can mix/match interior and exterior colors.  We have Sunlit exterior and Cafe interior.

Not just mixing inside/outside, but inside/inside.  We have a sagemint green interior but went with the gray front seats to go better with our morning mist gray exterior.

Definately.  Who knew the E450 could be disabled that way.

That is downright SCARY.

Glad it all worked out for you but a lesson for all.

After 3 flat tires, all coming out of storage, the extensions went in the trash.  The Tireman stems solved the leakage and access problems - on the front tires too.  This was not an inexpensive repair but it had to be done, I have no interest in dealing with nuisance flats on a trip.  Its a shame that the RV manufactures, PC and others, leave this for us to deal with.

The Viair compressors are good ones, they are popular with the off-road crowd (Jeeps).

I whole heartedly agree with the Pictured Rocks boat cruise if you're going to add in some of the Lake Superior area to your trip.  Make sure to check on their operating season though, if memory serves me correctly they're regular daily schedule starts mid May and ends mid September.  Fayette State park on the north shore of Lake Michigan on the east side of the bays De Noc is a really cool place depicting an old iron smelting town.  The town is partially rebuilt with nice displays telling what when and how everything happened.  They also have a fairly nice campground which I believe now has a full facility bathroom, new as of last year.  Checking the operating schedule for Fayette would be a good idea too.

A few years back when we were up there we tried to take the boat tour around picture rocks. After driving from the locks to there, we were informed that it was school tour day and the boat would be full of 7th and 8th grade kids. The nice lady said it could be rather noisy. We passed. So call ahead before driving there to make sure it is what you want. Some day we hope to get back there and take the tour.

We drove through several torrential down-pours, and aside from not being able to SEE, we made it through alright. That is until a semi with, apparently no mud flaps, sped past us and sent a wall of water up at us that shook the rig and almost sent us off the road. I kept us on the road, and after some mighty cursing at that guy I thought we were in the clear. In a matter of moments, the dashboard lit up with every warning light there is, and we started bucking and the engine began missing, and we were losing power fast.  We limped off a nearby exit ramp, but the engine quit before we could clear it.
Our always reliable rig was in full fail. I was freaking out a bit because it was already 5 oclock, and i was sure we would be there for the night. Calls to our insurance roadside assistance  number was mostly useless; our fault because we don't have RV specific coverage, YET.
The sun came out, and a very nice guy in a pickup stopped and when I explained how we came to be there, he smiled and laughted......you're  gonna be fine, he said. Give it a half hour or so, and I guarantee you it will start right up.

He was wrong, it took 45 minutes!  Started up after a few tries, the lights all went out, and we were back on the road.
Lessons learned?
Happy trails
Nancy

In cleaning out fresh water tank the valve which is like rubberized and drying out and making it hard to turn.  Anyone else have this problem and can it be replaced, if so, is it an easy fix.? The top part is breaking apart and have to use plyers gingerly to turn it on and off without breaking off pieces.   
Talked to Carol At PC and they are sending an new valve. Just so happens they have a few in stock.  So if anyone else has this problem the valve can be replaced.
