Yes, and no motor, not quite that lazy yet!

Removed curbside plastic trough with a plywood bottom and alum plate ends to gain about a foot of length and 2 inches in width plus it has square corners, etc. Have now removed the overhead mounted rack and will start modifying it to make it a floor mounted shelf with sides to facilitate it being able to come outside the basement part way to facilitate loading chairs and collapsing table. Still have to remove the driverside plastic trough and modify it like the curbside.

Pioneer AVH X-7500BT radio/GPS with bluetooth

I installed this radio yesterday....with motorized flip out. I originally wanted to replace the back up and side view monitor but no radio 3rd part could do all three cameras in one...not a bad fit, very accurate, with RV settings sounds good of course all be it factory speakers which may go next and it has and it has a video input for the iPhone 5 lightening cable which will play on the small screen and T.V. above. I am really happy with it.

Well, got the slide out rack moved from the ceiling and down to the floor so it makes it even easier to load the lawn chairs with the rack being able to come partially out either side of the basement. A little more organized with the plastic troughs being removed and a plywood bottom and alum ends used to replace them. Big advantage is it is deeper, longer, wider and has square corners.

Carried her in to the dealer for some TLC. Had an extensive list of things, most of which were just downright "picky".

The service lady was fantastic. NOT ONE word about any of the items.

OK, explain this one?

GOT IT, no problem.

Next?

We asked how long. She said:

When do you *want* it?

I gave her what I thought was an unrealistic date.

No problem ma'am, we're ON IT.

She also wrote across the top of the service form:

IN BY APPOINTMENT

I told DH that if we moved a thousand miles away tomorrow and decided to buy another RV, I'd come RIGHT back to Bayou Outdoor Super Center in Bossier City/Shreveport, LA to buy it.

These people simply cannot be beat.

I saw your post and said:

OC's been modifying his 5er again!

DH got up and came across the great room and snagged my puter.

Took it over, he did! HAD to see your pics.

Mine does, but I use a purple hose for the black tank flush system.
It is only hooked up when I flush the tank with no filter or pressure regulator, I figure more water/pressure = more cleaning power.
