First off has anyone found a supplier for carpet for the cab area of the e series fords? I'm not talking floor mats, I have a one piece floor mat but it slides around like crazy and I've tried everything short of screwing to the rubber floor to keep it in place.. I'm talking about a full on take the seats out and put the factory style carpet in type of carpet. I called my ford dealer and he said if they could get it it would be over $800 dollars! I think not! Lol
Second thing, has anyone experienced a complete electric awning failure while the awning was deployed? It happened to us this past weekend on our trip to Tennessee.. When we got to the campsite I ran the awning out and for 3 days it stayed that way, there was no rain or wind or anything like that and when I went to roll it back up and hit the button nothing happened and I mean nothing!
My buddy and I checked all the fuses, I verified I had power at the switch and at the plug that's inside the right side arm of the awning when the switch was depressed and the motor would not even attemp to make a sound. After reading the manual on how to roll the awning up if this should happen I installed the provided lanyard and had my buddy hold it while I removed the two screws on the rt hand side per the instructions and at that point the manual said the awning would roll itself up under its own spring tension but not a thing happened, it didn't even try to move an inch!
We ended up stacking two picnic tables on top of one another (it was a sight to see) so I could reach it because of the way the campsite sloped off and I had to roll the awning up by hand and then once I had it rolled up,and stowed I put one of the screws back in and ratchet strapped the awning to the ladder so it would deploy while driving 700 miles home. Needless to say I wasn't and I'm still not very impressed with the dometic awning! Currently the coach is at the dealer to get this and the ac fixed (yes it went out too but I got it to come back on) but I was wondering if anyone has had this happen to them and if so what was the problem???
