Excellent suggestions.

On the topic of the Pantry Slide. Does anyone know the trick to get the pantry slide out of the cabinet. I need to remove it and I haven't been able to figure it out.

Thanks.

To the OP. It is hard to tell from just the one image but I think a repair facility with a competent fiberglass technician should be able to repair the damaged fiberglass. The doors are a bigger challenge but they may be able to fabricate replacements or find some from a salvage source.

Thanks for posting. We have the same setup on our 2004 26RB. Those upgrades in conjunction with a good alignment has made our coach very driveable.

Sorry for the confusion. I should have been more clear in my initial statement. We have been having trouble keeping within the axle capacity on the rear axle so I wanted to weigh the coach empty to see if it was close to the factory specified weight before I try again to load the coach more appropri...

I didn't want to start a new thread but wanted to share my numbers as we are working on trying to make sure we are not overweight on the rear axle. Coach is a 2004 26RB. The vehicle is rated for 4,600lb on front axle and 9,450lb on the rear axle as has been stated by other owners here. I weighed the...

I'm posting on this existing thread to alleviate cluttering up the forum with yet another restringing thread. The shades in our 2004 26RB are mounted within the wood window frame and seem to free float on the cords that are attached to the frame at the top and bottom. I'm assuming that to remove the...

You are correct. It will be a lot of work. Painting over the Gel coat is not a problem, the factory did full body paint over the gel coat. The time spent with removing trim, moldings, lamps, latches, etc will make the job stand out versus trying to mask around things. When you get the body painted a...

Dallas, Thanks for the reply. I agree a little higher will be optimal. That was a quick and dirty photo annotation I did on my phone. It is good to hear that the microwave is easy to pull out. I see you also moved your vent hood back. Supposedly, with the SeeLevel system you can tie their sensors in...

I’m considering installing a SeeLevel II tank monitor and would like some advice on my proposed display panel location. I have attached an image of where I’m thinking of placing the panel and would like to know if anyone thinks there would be any issues placing it here. The display is 4” wide and 1”...

Digging up this old topic in hopes of getting some input on the See Level II tank gauge system. For those that have installed the system, where did you mount the control panel?

We have a 2004 26RB and I'm trying to figure out a good location for the control panel.

Thanks,

Jeff

I recently installed a Sturgi-Stay propane fitting with two quick disconnects (https://mbsturgis.com/products/quick-disconnect-sturgi-stay-fitting/ ). This is similar in functionality to the Extend-A-Stay product sold at Camping World and other vendors. With two quick disconnects I can have both my ...

As many have done, our spare is stored under the jack knife sofa pushed all the way forward toward the driver seat. I purchased a heavy duty canvas tire bag with handles that makes it easier to manage and allows cleaner storage of the damaged tire. I carry a 20 ton bottle jack and all necessary tool...

Final post of the install. Sorry for all the pics but I wanted to be as complete as possible. In order to get the side post flush with the shower wall I trimmed the seam molding. I filled the gap with white silicone sealant before installing the post. I also used a few small pieces of foam tap on th...
