I ain't sure, but, I think the light on the driver side of the coach switch is located in a basement bin.

OH! NOW YOU'VE DONE IT!!!

Over the next few days, every Outlaw owner on this forum is going to be digging in every drivers side bin looking for that switch!!

I hope you are right.
That will save me a bunch of work on my TODO list - that reads:
"Install switch on stupid drivers side Patio Light."

I wonder if I have is a telephone jack next to that light switch

Hahahahahaha.... Too true! Last time, someone mentioned the existing "Home Theater" audio connections, I spent hours in uncomfortable positions under the dash getting it connected!

So, I checked my '07 on a W22 Workhorse (8.1L/A1000) no switches in any of the bins.

So sad about the drivers side patio light switch
Guess the TODO list stays the same.

But I have question for others: Does anyone else have a cable TV style jack in the drivers side forward most bin?
I do and I followed the cable up into the front cab by the headlight. I think it's one of the spare cables I have in the cabinette above the drivers seat (maybe for a remote SAT Dish?).

Many thanks
So, this is probably what the Damon "Sat Prep" is made up of...cables that lead from the mounting points to the two the cabinettes in the front overhead.

I have 4 coax cables in the drivers overhead bin...1 is the crossover from SAT Receiver to the switching box on the passenger side, 1 is connected to the rooftop dish, 1 is (probably) connected to the jack we're talking about...so, it's only a matter of time to run the last cable.

Being the second owner of a 4 year old coach makes some things like a treasure hunt

Happy Trails

I miss a few days and look what happens?

Missing phone jacks, sat connections, drivers side light, home stereo, all those things that keep us busy.

Meanwhile, I'm working on an idea that may be the beginning to answering a few of our questions about that front hitch option. More as it develops over the next week or so (or so I hope!).

2007 Outlaw Milage

We are in the process of purchasing a 2007 Outlaw. What kind of gas milage are you getting?
1. Not pulling/cargo empty?
2. Pulling (boat/car)?

I get 7mpg whether its empty, loaded, pulling my car, or not pulling my car. Mine is the F53 Ford with the V-10 with the 5 Star Tune installed running 87 octane unleaded.

My driver's side light come on with the patio light switch at the door. As far as the home theater cable under the dash!! I Love my TV playing through my overhead speakers. On another note!! I just purchased a MAGNA SHADE for the front windshield, Man do I love being able to look through the windshield with privacy from the outside!! Makes it a lot cooler sitting in the sun. Tony

I have a 2007/workhorse 8.1/no toad/garage is an extra bedroom. We get between 8.5-10.5 when we drive East and 7-9 when we drive West. Wind makes a huge difference. 55mph makes it easier to get over 9.

From our March trip SoCal->No OR and back...We measured an overall average mileage at just over 8 (w/ small SUV Toad). -Not bad- I feel, thanks to the climb (North and Southbound) over the 4100 foot Tejon Pass and 4300 foot Siskiyou Pass, plus 20-40 mph headwinds back home through the California Central Valley. Between the Gas Killers, we were getting 11-14MPG!. See the "I LOVE MY DAMON OUTLAW" thread.

Without a toad we get slightly higher mileage - but less difference than I thought it would.

On out 2011 trip from Central TX to SoCal we got an average just over 9 (no toad).

Please note; There are 2 different chassis on the '07...Ford Triton 6.8L V10/5 spd Ford Tranny -and- Workhorse W22 (GM 8.1L/6 spd Allison). They have about the same HP, but the GM engine reaches peak power at a lower RPM and is therefore could be a bit more efficient, plus the GM has an extra gear to keep the engine at it's peak power band.

The two chassis have different GVWR as well.

From my searching, the Ford is more available than the Workhorse, but they get similar sale prices.

Best luck

Don and Nuc...please share about the home theater audio connection(?) Was it outlined in your owners manual? What TV is connected to the speakers? Did you have to install an amplifier or did you already have that option?

I have an upgraded radio and newer TV's, but all the wires are OEM...just don't see how to get the audio signal from the TV up-front to the audio system.

Thanks
