Much prefer the truck lanes, simply because there's more room. I like the inside lanes, because it's a shorter walk.

Replacement water pump

I need to replace my original house water pump on my 2006 Crescendo, and would love to use something more quiet. What type pump might I use without getting into significant modification?

Re: Wireless TV

Okay, thanks for that. I feel like I have to try it, rather than attempting to pull HDMI cable. That would be a whole 'nuther trip!!

Re: hydr jacks and slides will not extend

We had a similar problem with our Crescendo('06). We wound up having to replace the jacks control panel, which fixed the problem.

So maybe that's what it...

Re: Is hot water heater electric?

If you haven't found the switch yet, you might look under the galley sink. That's where ours is, and others have mentioned that spot as well.
