A handle on our bathroom sink makes a squeaking sound when turning it.  Below is a photo of our sink.

I've read that lubricating the handle stem will eliminate the squeak, but I'm not sure how to remove the cap on the handle.

Do I use a screw driver as suggested in the following procedure and does this procedure seem like the right thing to do?

Lubricate the stem as follows:

Push the end of a screwdriver under the cap on the knob to pry it off. If the center cap will not pop off, it is probably threaded. Loosen it with a pair of pliers and turn it counterclockwise with your fingers to remove it.

Remove the screw in the center of the knob.

Pull the knob up to remove it.

Coat the exposed handle stems with plumbers grease.

Sounds easy enough, but I've never done this before.

Yes those instructions are correct...BUT do not use a screwdriver to pry up the center cap...use a knife blade and slowly work it between the cap and the knob.   You will scratch the finish if you try with a standard screwdriver.  A small jeweler's screwdriver will work though.

Bob,
I think I know the answer to your question.
If you leave the rig during daytime hours, you leave all the ceiling lights off except the one controlled by the switch by the entry.
When you exit the rig, push the entry switch to off to turn off the one remaining ceiling light.
When you return after dark, push the entry switch on to light up the inside of the rig.

Bob,

You are not the only one to forget about that switch.  I have told Barry a few times that the light in the ceiling in front of the microwave is not working and he just reminds me that this light is controlled by the switch at the entry door. 

Our 2008 did not have this so I always left a light on when we were going to return to the RV late at night.  What I do like about this switch is I do not have to leave a light on and now just open the door and flip that switch and I can now see to enter the RV without tripping on anything.  A nice feature added by PC.

Doh!  That was it!!! Why do all the other lights work except that one if the "ceiling lights" switch is off?

Is that light controlled by a switch by the entry steps? Could be a bad switch.

Ron,
Here are two photos of the rear view mirrors on our 2014 PC2552 (built on a 2013 Ford chassis).  I would call them single arm.

I think we have the same mirrors on our 2007 2350 with only minor differences.

1) Our arms are a lot longer (as TomH states, shortened in later model years)
2) The glass mirrors on ours is single.  Yours are duel with different curvatures for better views to the rear.

So it's only the Sprinters that have duel arm mirrors.  That clears up my confusion.

The ceiling light fixture in front of the microwave has stopped working.  I removed it and voltage reads 0 from the black and red wires coming through the ceiling.  I checked all the fuses and circuit breakers at the foot of the bed (2014 2350).  Is there another location for fuses for ceiling fixtures?

Thanks....Bob

Bruce you have the short arm mirrors that became stand on all the Fords in 2012. before that they had the long arms on them. Yes, they are single arm unlike the sprinter mirrors.
