    Bob; we bought from the Ancira Dealer in Alvarado , just south of Dallas. We were very unhappy with their service and they caused us lots of problem. We have been satisfied with the Ancia dealership in Boerne though.
    Never have noticed any difference in the bay doors whether on or off Jack's.
    Thanks for the reply, we will be in Napanee in about three weeks, hope they can figure the banging vibration out.
    Thanks again!

    Bob;
    We also have a 2014 Essex 4544. I have driven 14000 miles since last March and have had a persistent problem. I wondered if you had experienced a similar problem. When we are driving with a cross wind coming across the coach from the passenger side at 90 degrees to the coach. We get a loud vibrating, hammering sound which seems to be right over the drivers head. I have had it back to the dealer multiple times without remedy. They have installed clips on the full wall slide topper and I now have five clips up there and still have the same problem. The last time they said they found a bolt missing and I still have the problem. Do you have any ideas? We are going next month back to the factory but I am not sure they have a clue about this when I talk to them.
    Thank you.

    Slabman:
    Thanks for getting back to me. Yes the Essex is a fine ride. When I was looking for a new (to me) coach the good Essex's were too dear. Now I probably could find several. But right now I am content with my HR Navigator with the 60 series Detroit. I have not been traveling too much lately. We live in a nice quiet place on the central coast of CA. temps and humidity same all year. However this summer in July we are heading north where our kids and grand kids live. We will end up in Anacortes WA for a month long stay at a nice RV park right on the bay.
    Regarding toads. My 2002 LX470 works perfectly but is starting to look a bit shabby. So from your investigations what is the newest LX470 or even the GX470 that can still be towed 4 wheels down? With that information I will start looking. I bet the towing brackets will fit the newer one too. Regarding motor homes I have recently been lusting at the 45ft rear bath and half units. What do you know about them?

    Slabman....I have read your post. I have a travel Supreme....I have done some of the X-Bracing and I am going to ad the front braces you show pictured. I talked with PP and they said they do an x brace by extending the storafe rails forward from the axle rail hangers and x-brace the axle rail hangers. Did you have this done?

    had an event that you should know about. I towed it for about 10 miles with the key out of the ignition and the wheels locked over to the left. It was caused by too many keys on the keychain causing a pendulum action swinging the keys right out of the keyhole.
    So now I place a piece of tape over the key and tape it to the dash. gJust a warning
