Good weather, finally

Hey, I finally got to get the rig out and look closely at the outside. I decided that Wax was not in the cards... I wanted something longer lasting. I tested both Voom Gold and Liguid Glass on the back and decided to go with the Voom for ease of application and shine. It is truely spray on and wipe to a shine. I will use the Liqiud Glass on the front end in 2-3 coats for extra protection and also on the wheels.

Overall, the paint is well done, there are a few spotsthat didn't get buffed...

I got it!!

Posted 02-15-2010 at 05:27 PM by robodoc (2010 Ellipse 42AD)

Well, this last Thursday we went to Forest City IA. Desite the setbacks and the snow we took delivery of the "RV". For a small dealer in a small town, Lichtsinn does a great job. I didn't get to meet Ron, hewas out of town. The Punchlist was not very long after the walkthru. The Biggest problem was on the back of the armrest that pulls out for the sectional sofa (one of the greatest features). there was a miscut on the ultraleather. Pam, my wife, noticed it early in the process,...

An update from Lichtsinn shows a delivery date from the factory of 1-21-2010. HEY! that's only days away!
We have planned to go to Forest City the 2nd week in Feb.

I am sure I will have the ear ofdealer technicians, and possibly someone from the factory. Any questions I should ask?

A preview courtesy of Driver

Posted 12-27-2009 at 02:57 PM by robodoc (2010 Ellipse 42AD)

Driver posted a blog entry from the Show in Louisville, KY of the Ellipse 42AD. Silver Sky is the color we ordered. We also are getting the same interior and the fireplace option shown. We did opt for the 4 door fridge and no dishwasher. We like the look and don't really use either the dishwasher or in door ice and water.

Here is a link to Driver's post:

Toad Brake Decision

Posted 12-22-2009 at 05:35 AM by robodoc (2010 Ellipse 42AD)

I've decided on the SMI Air Force One for the new Coach. The M&G product is not compatable with my toad (2002 Toyota Sequoia). After some encouraging posts on the Forums, I will be doing a self install.
