  1. Actually, the plywood was screwed, then the flooring glued to it.
  2. Thank you all! I do want to thank Erniee for sharing his knowledge and being an inspiration for the rest of us. I spent a LOT of time, on the floor, trying to figure out how to get the tile out from under the kitchen cabinets, and came up with nothing, short of removing the cabinets and fridge, or removing the slide. Since the tile was in good shape, it stayed. If there is a way, I'd love to hear it!
  3. Having decided not to travel this summer, it was time for an upgrade for our 2007 Damen Tuscany. The new flooring is 1/2 inch engineered hardwood with a plywood base, glued in place.
  4. I know this post is 2 years late, but I had the same problem. I used a small magnet to make the stairs think that the door was closed, then turned off the batteries.
  5. No, It was through RV Glass Solutions in Lakeland
  6. An update on my trip to FL. It was cold and snowing when we left Eastern CT The bus heater wouldn't get warm The refrigerator wouldn't stay cold. (Norcold in case anybody's wondering) We found a nice little campground just off I-77 in St Mathew SC. No frills, not very level, perfect for a night off the road... After some research, I disconnected the Thermistor and got the fridge running in "back up " mode I had reserved a space at the Beginning Point RV park in Wesley Chapel, and checked in on schedule. I ordered a new thermistor from a Large RV dealer in Tampa, and was able to pick it up the next day. We got our windows measured and new glass ordered and we moved down the coast to Ft Myers just in time for the lock-down. So here we sit in self isolation at Lakes Park RV Park, until April 21. By then our glass should have arrived, and we'll head back to Lakeland for installation.
  7. Yup. The majority of the windows are fogged. Since the driver's side is a big 4 pane unit, I'm reluctant to tackle it on my own. And since further fogging is a safety issue, I've decided to go with Laminated glass. I will deal with the other windows later. Since they're smaller, and not mission critical, I might attempt a DIY repair for some, but I suspect a couple have been etched. After many years of owning and working on sailboats, I have learned that nothing is ever easy or cheap! Owning a land yacht is no different. On the plus side, a land yacht won't sink! On the negative side, a land yacht won't sink
  8. I'm planning to get some windows replaced in Lakeland, so that will be our first stop. They tell me that it takes 6 weeks for the new glass to arrive, so for that time we will be free move around... We do have a plan to visit my daughter in Vero Beach, and see some friends in the Ft Myers area. I'm hoping that campground vacancies will be easier to find as we move into the non-peak season.
  9. Thank you all for your answers... This will be my first trip with no set destination, and no set time frame. The trip south should take 3 days, boondocking along the way. I'm thinking a reservation starting on day 6 would give us some wiggle room for travel, and then see if an early check-in is possible. The worst case would be a couple more days of boondocking.
  10. Hi all, I'm planning a trip from CT to central Florida in March. Our departure date is flexible, and largely weather dependent. Will I need to make reservations before hand, or will I be able to find campgrounds with space for a 40 ft coach?
  11. yup, the horse is long gone... Still not sure how or why we triggered the "Safe Hold" in the first place, after several successful hookups using the same checklist. I guess some experimentation is in order. Since you need to turn on the ignition just to see if the brake is engaged, you must first disengage the steering system work-around, so I'd much rather get it right the first time...
  12. We just completed our first trip with our 2015 Cherokee Trailhawk. We had the MOPAR tow package installed by our dealer, and have a Blue Ox Tow bar and Patriot II aux brake system.. We hooked up and towed the jeep about 250 miles with no problem. When hooking up for the return trip, we somehow activated the "Safe Hold" feature of the electronic parking brake system, and destroyed the jeep's rear tires before we could safely pull over... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=81-wAQzybOI&feature=youtu.be According to Jeep, the safe hold system senses an unsafe condition and engages automatically, We must have created one of those unsafe conditions while shifting the transfer case to neutral. Once you set the start button to off, you no longer see any indication that the system is engaged. Obviously we need to move "Check Parking Brake " up a few steps on our checklist, and when possible, move the rig while someone watches the jeep rear wheels. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Is there any way to disable the system? .
