2013 Tour tips

We found metal construction debris stuck in 5 of the drivers slide rollers. Easy to remove and much better for your tile.

When we first got our 42QD, we kept getting rub marks on the tile where the rollers sat. I cleaned the rollers real well and now we don't get the marks on the tile. We also make sure floor is clean prior to bringing in slides.

Thanks smack2020

Dw wanted me to find a way to block the light coming in the bedroom and she wanted a full length mirror. She loves the upgrade. Not sure how I feel about seeing my whole self when I jump out of bed in the morning!

Wow, very nice, jbmsr. My wife has been wanting a mirror too. How did you install it? It looks awesome. Wife likes your new mirror too.

Thanks smack2020!
I had Atlas glass and mirror cut it to size. (40"x 73") It was 1/8th inch thick to keep the weight down. I had them install an anti shatter material on the back for safety (it was white so it looks good from the living room). I got the black trim at Pep boy's (it was door trim). I used the two sided tape recommended by the glass company.

Thanks,


Jesse

The 2013 Ellipse 42GD that we have comes with a full length mirror already installed on the bathroom side of the door from the bath into the master bedroom. My wife thought it didn't have a mirror either until the first time that I used the toilet and closed that door and then I called to her ... "HONEY, come here for a minute, I need to show you something!" She was ecstatic.

My Meridian has bypass doors but that could be doable. Great idea

I assume it was the mirror?

Too funny. Unfortunately, it probably was the mirror!

I have a question about my 2013 42QD. The radio buttons on the steering wheel do not light up at night, however, the other steering wheel buttons do light up. Is this normal or do I have a defective light bulb?

The radio control is battery powered and not connected to the motorhome electrical system. At least mine is.

I was told the radio buttons are a Winnie add on, and as said above, battery powered. Mine don't light up either.

Thank you for your feedback. It makes sense that if the radio buttons control the radio via an RF signal then the buttons may not light up with the other steering wheel buttons. I'll check to see if the radio buttons are battery powered.
