Bill, did you use the one from Discount Van and Truck?

Yes that was the one. Easy to install, comes with high grade bolts. Better with two people simply to handle the weight of the seat. The activator level sticks out the front between passenger legs. It was too long. Easily cut off with hacksaw and added a plastic cap to it ("screw protector at Home Depot") to cover sharp end. It is easy to rotate with door open. A little tight but possible to rotate with door closed.

thanks Bill! I was concerned about how close the "house" cutout is going over and besides the seat, wondering if it made the seat too confined once it is swiveled. But I think I'll go ahead and order it.

We got a good look at the gutter draining above the cab door thing today, when we went thru a truck wash. Thanks to this thread, I was able to slide into the door without out filling the map pocket with water runoff. It seemed like maybe a 3" extension would make a fairly big difference in how far the door could be opened?

Took delivery one week ago. Living room 42" TV does not work. On four door fridge, right door does not latch. I will need to take it in to dealer to fix when the parts come in.

Is the TV a Jensen 12V? If so, check the cigarette plug adapter. If the light isn't on the plug, it's burnt out. I go through about one a month (or each trip).

It is a Jensen. I'll check that when I get home. Thanks for the tip.

The 42" TV is not 12v. Too big. The 32" are all 12v however.

4GCampers , is it the plug or the fuse that burns out? Does this TV draw too much for the circuit? Do you think there is a fire risk?

Thanks

I checked the back and found the power plug wires to the TV are spliced with wire caps. The wires run into the cabinet so I couldn't see where they go. I also noticed there's a 12v plug on the outside of the cabinet (next to the cable tv plug) that is not being used.

Another thing I noticed is that there's a blue light that comes on when I press the power button on the TV, the screen flashes for a second, and then goes dark. So there seems to be power going to the TV.

And finally, the same TV is mounted on the outdoor entertainment center and it works perfectly.

Conclusion: Bad TV? or Bad wiring?
