I'll be! I do have telescoping on mine. Never knew it. Actually helps me get in closer position, too. Thanks all!

Shoulder is doing great, Paul. Doing p/t and getting back some range of motion. Still not allowing me to do much. How is your wife doing with her wrist?

Hey Tom, just got my cushion. Feels great in a chair. Can't wait to try it in the Berk.

Good luck. The pins should add stability. Hope she feels better.

Thanks for the heads up on that! Didn't know that! Will give it a close examination when the Berk comes back. The leather seats in our 2007 Sightseer were the most comfortable rv seats I've ever sat in. Great to meet other cow pounders!

Since a lot people just found out they had a telescoping and tilt wheel. Do you know you have an economy mode on your transmission? It short shifts and doesn't down shift as early for better fuel milage.

Mine won't shift into 6th until 57 mph. So on roads other interstate it wants to stay in 5th. So the Mode button lets it shift to 6th about 53 mph. Much better
