General Discussion / Best Air Conditioner ?
« on: June 04, 2017, 05:01:36 pm »
Anyone have any feedback as to what the best air conditioner is for rv's such as the PC 2350? Am thinking of getting one installed this summer. At present I don't have one. I have solar panels that come within 12 inches of proposed location, protruding maybe a couple of inches high.  Wondering if a riser kit is available if needed.

General Discussion / Upgrading Ford factory radio sterio
« on: October 26, 2016, 05:50:07 pm »
Has anyone upgraded the Ford factory radio to lets say a Smart Radio Stereo? You know the type, with built in GPS, Apps and back-up camera capable.

Does the Ford have the universal "dual din" footprint, to make installation possible?

Thanks

Tips and Tricks / Side storage locks
« on: August 30, 2016, 08:55:15 pm »
We all know how cantankerous this storage lock are with keys able to be inserted ether way and if finally inserted correctly, one chas to play a bit to get the lock to work.  I found these on Amazon and so far am pleased with them.  No more keys.

Tips and Tricks / Entry Lock
« on: August 30, 2016, 08:44:06 pm »
My side door entry lock broke this summer.  So I decided to upgrade the old girl a bit with a digital from Amazon. https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B000CJ1OZ4/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

But be forewarned that as with most of my improvements I have posted, this is not a plug and play as the footprint of this lock assembly is smaller.  This means one needs to make a small plastic bezel to fill the space..  I used a 1/8 " white plastic sheet to do the honors.  See below.

Tips and Tricks / New desk
« on: August 27, 2016, 06:02:21 pm »
Needed a new larger desk.  Since I'm a woodworker, I was able to design and build a size for my application. You can too if a pattern is given to you maybe friendly woodworker down the street?  Just used 2  large angle L brackets screwed onto 2 inch angle bracket that is fastened to the two wall ends. I even faboracated a Small drawer underneath for pencils and stuff.  Done all in Maple, as that is our PC design.

Since we spend 6 months in our 2350, we always have a problem with shoe, slipper storage in our 2350. Here is our solution that seems to work for Barb and myself.  Only buy a good quality like from Bed & Beyond.

General Discussion / Rear Bumper
« on: June 03, 2014, 07:49:12 am »
Since I am a klutze when backing at times, I build a rear bumper.  Its mounted high enough to clear the rear receiver. Bumper is made of 3 one inch red oak laminated together about 4" high, mounted on both ends of the receiver using drop hitches and appropriate laminated oak blocks to give it the proper placement.
I know this isn't a project for everyone since I'm a woodworker, but thought I would share as the material could as well be steel.

Antennas are always a challenge on any vehicle, and ham radio antennas on PC 2350 is no ex exception.

After successfully getting this antennae system to work properly, comes the problems and issues of mounting the radios in a convenient location.

Below are some pics that show how I did A no holes installation.

The last photo is of a waterproof connection for external dipole.

Tips and Tricks / Some Storage Improvements
« on: August 12, 2013, 11:17:13 am »
1st picture  is a dirty clothes hamper located under the bed. A small door was added to facilitate access to the space under the bed. Clothes bag then fixed to the perimeter of the door frame.

2nd pic is of more additional storage that can be used, just by hinging part of the bed frame floor, gaining access to that area.  Also helps for future fixing issues that might pop up in the future.

General Discussion / Ford Handling Issues
« on: May 10, 2013, 09:46:55 pm »
My Ford F350 had some handling issues.  Basically, it had a mind of its own, meaning on a straight smooth road it liked to wonder where constant corrections was needed. This was not fixed by the standard alignment, or changing tire presures etc.

The internet is a swell tool.  I just had to Google this problem and I came up with this fine site:
http://forums.motorhomemagazine.com/Index.cfm/fuseaction/thread/tid/24815915/print/true.cfm

To understand all this: http://www.d26.net/240sx/mirrors/Whiteline_WheelAlignmentTermsAndTheory.htm

Apparently this wondering issue is addressed by checking the wheel caster alignment.

So I did what was suggested and had the alignment shop change my caster from 0 (zero) to 5 degrees.

In one word; "Amazing".  I would suggest to anyone who is not satisfied with their Fords handling ability to do the same.  This sure beats throwing money at suspension improvments and then finding the problem still exist.

I then went one step further.. My stearing seemed to be tight. (Ford already changed out the stearing gear box).  With the suggestion from my brother, who works at Ford, I disconnected the stearing stablizer.  Now the stearing preasure is more normal. Alignment shop say to just remove
it, and I did.

Just thought I would pass this info on to any who may have the same problems.
