Well......It's finally time to put this thread to bed.

Yesterday, we went to the dealer to pick up the WW. We went through our second PDI, and gave the Hensley hitch to the service department to install. After a while, the service tech comes and tells us that the hitch won't fit......the LPG tanks are in the way. Aarrrgghh.

We decide the best solution is to remove the tank mount, and raise it using 5" box channel.

Here we go again.........back home without the WW.

This afternoon we go back to the dealer, and the mod looks great.....sign the papers....and finally after 154 days since we ordered.....haul the WW home....She's officially ours.

I want to thank everyone again for your advice and especially your support.

Wes

Wes:

Glad to see at least you've taken her home...that's certainly a good sign! Let us know how the tire thing goes, OK?

So...just what kinda mods have YOU got planned? There's no shortage of any here! (You got to bless your lucky starts that Howie's out-and-about right now!).

PEG (thanks for the synonym HD!) Pics, everyone- PEG pics!!

Sean,

The first mod is to install the XM radio. I bought the install kit for our old burb and never put it in. Our new burb has a factory XM radio, so I don't need it for that. The next will be the Directv sat system and a DVD player. The next one is necessary because of the first three...another deep cycle battery.

Wes

SAT system is a good first mod....whatdayagonna do for the dish? I suggest the Kingdome...piece o cake, and so much better than the crank-em-up&down units...

Second...batteries- just gonna add the second one? How 'bout inverter?

Too bad we're miles apart, otherwise I'd love to spend your money...lots to do, and just take a que from Griz...a bunch of trips to the home improvement store (of your choice) to stock her up!

Ooooo..the fun has just begun...

I'm just going to use an extra dish I have for now. I looked at the Kingdome dish at the dealer...very nice.

I got the inverter with the coach so that's one mod WW did for me.

Your right Sean....now the fun begins.

Are you kidding me...after 154 days, we aint puttin' this one to sleep, this one helped change the way that a LOT of people evaluate their toyhaulers, it helped change one of the industry manufacturer leaders, ...
... and well,..me? .... I'm going to go light a few candles at the 'Sacred Mother of RV Chapel' on the way home from work tonite in thankfullness.

If i had lit a candle or two every one of these past days, well Clark and Phatty would be hearing them alarm sirens goin' off back at command headquarters right about now.
Its a wonderful day indeed. Now i understand that Sean has rightfully requested those Poop Eatin' Grin shots of you and your kin standing' around out in front of your rig.
This is one of our few joys here..
CONGRATS,
Mike
