Have been trying to reply to your PM's, doesn't seem to want to send it for me. Have tried two other times that do show in my sent folder but not sure if you got them either. Here is the reply to the last one:

Yes, put the front down first till it picks up about an inch, then the back two. I did make two 18 X 18 blockes for each side, 4 layers thick of 3/4" plywood that I use to be sure my jacks don't sink. This is after I open the slide and then drain the air down to get the whole coach as low as I can.

Haven't damaged anything yet yet but found out if I raise one rear corner too far it will cause my windshield to shift and sometimes leaves a gap in a corner between the windshield and the seal. Don't think thats supposed to happen but haven't had a chance to address it yet, too busy trying to get ready to move. Just retired the beginning of the month and plan on getting full time sometime in the next month or so.

Saw the pictures you posted, looks really good. Same color as mine and looks like the same interior except I used to have a dinette booth. Been doing some remodeling and it's gone now along with the two couches. Couch in the slide has been replaced with a LazyBoy reclining loveseat. The passengers side still has the table but thats it right now. In the process of drawing up a plan to build a cabinet from right behind the passenger's seat to the refrigerator, about 18" deep for our TV and computer and then cut back to 10-12" for the dining area. Also have already removed that 70lb head knocker from above the drivers seat, didn't feel comfortable with that hanging over me while driving. I cut that box down to the same size as the rest of the cabinets ther but still need to make a door for it.

Thanks Rabbitfish!

Much better shape then most we looked at in this date range. I have a couple of minor things to fix but nothing too involved.

We take it out on the maiden voyage next month for a weekend. We are excited! :-)
