Used the grill for some steaks, homemade au gratin potatoes to test the oven (love the larger size so that we had no burning issues since we could raise the grill above the flame). I'm not sure how accurate my TST Tire Pressure Monitor system is? It is flagging two tires as low at 44 psi but my tire gauge says there perfect at 47. It still makes me comfortable sine it is at least consistent so I can see if one starts going down or gets too hot.

But if these are the worst problems I can come up with I am feeling pretty blessed.

F250 gasser did well over the mountains. Better on the way back as I get better experience at momentum and controlling the rpm's.

Thanks for asking. I think we will head to Edisto Beach in a couple of weeks
They Claim to be plus or minus 1 to two psi. It could be your gage to. Also you should have those "C" rated tires at 50 PSI, check the sticker for sure....

When I used it on my new Rockwood, then closed the slide out, it forced the door closed putting a small mark on the wood front of the refrigerator and jamming the plastic notch into the inside of the door. How do you keep your door propped so it won't get musty inside? The slide out fits so snugly against the center island that it has 0 space to leave the door ajar.

Thanks
What I do with my new 16 after reading you're post is, I close the kitchen slide first. Then I open the fridge door not much room and pop out the little latch and let it hold. It's tight for sure. Then close the tv slide. No problems so far.

both mine broke, now I slit a piece of pipe insulation over the edge, plus I put another over the edge of the island, I got a good dent from it hitting when we travel that will stop the rub and keep it tight.....

Ours is a '15, but there's enough room to leave the doors ajar with that black "thingamajiggy". Like somebody else said, it's probably the placement of the island. A half an inch could be a big difference. And a 3/4" piece of black pipe insulation with the slit down the middle works great on our recliner handle facing the back wall.

P.S. Ed- is your fridge as loud as ours is? It's so loud I'm thinking of replacing the fan with a computer fan like others on here have done.

I used two different gauges to test the air pressure before putting on the sensors on my TST and mine read low by around 3 PSI. No matter as generally all they do is go up when I drive.

if the fireplace is the same as mine there are two controls, one for the lighting effect and one for the actual heat. You need to up the heat control and it will start putting up some nice heat with the blower.

The same guy installed your shower stall as mine...no caulking on the lower track.

I replaced the cooling fan on mine to. I also added another to the top area and one to the bottom. That ended my noise problem, plus it increased my cooling, I now have to keep it set on #1. My freezer stays at 17 degrees and refer area 40. I also put one to blow across the coiling coil to circulate the air in the refer, ran the wire through the drain tube for power.
