#5 If you have the Clarion system, turn on the radio, press the top button above the volume knob "menu", once the screen shows you options, slide with your fingers the screen to the left... twice. You will see a screen/window, top right that is a rear view camera.
Press, tap that window and walla you have rear vision anytime you want it.

X 2!

I keep it on the rear camera screen quite a bit to monitor the toad, especially for a while after starting out initially, and again after any stops where the car has been reconnected. It is probably paranoia on my part, but with my rig being large and powerful I really can't tell it is there unless I see it in the camera or turn sharply enough to catch it in the mirrors.

Robbbyr..........we're not big or powerful lolololol but keeping the toad in view is not possible w/out the rear camera. Not paranoia, just good common sense on your part.

I know they are not for everybody (it would be boring if they were) but the Seneca sure is both!

Darrell, what type of material did you use for your visors? Post a pic, perhaps?

Mike, I found the material at Hobby Lobby. It is cloth but looks like dark brown leather/vinyl on one side. The other side is black smooth cloth. The leather looking matches the trim on Bertha's furniture. The material is 26" wide so I folded it so we actually have 16" sun blockage.
The "drape" is clipped to the sun visors (down position) with file clips. Very securely held in place.
Please understand, this is an amateur job with the goal of blocking the sun/reflections. No hems or other fine finish...........it is functional.
Pics..........I'll try


















By reducing the amount of sun/reflection, I have also given our dash AC a better chance of keeping up.

17. With as many bumps, rattle, and rolls as the bus has, I'm surprised that anything stays tight unless it's coated heavily in loctite! In all honesty, it doesn't ride bad at all but I do feel like I need to check the tightness of things frequently for my sanity. (and after already finding many things loose)
18. And that reminds me... anyone care to post the wiring schematic files? I know that I saw them here somewhere. While dumping the sewer yesterday I noticed a black wired grounded to the frame just rear of the jack that was otherwise dangling freely. I'm sure it would like to find it's home.
19. End of first trip and we are hooked. 2 weeks into ownership, approx. 1800 miles and 6 states later. Averaged about 6.8 mph with average cruise of about 73mph with gen always on and average ambient temp of about 92. Not too bad I suppose.
20. Home late last evening, back to work 0700 this am and wishing we were back on the road. Work stinks but I guess it pays the bills and is why we can have the precept.

21. Has anyone considered replacing the glazed door window with a regular window (if even possible)? My wife seems to think the ride would be more enjoyable if there was a bit more of a view from the couch since the kitchen window is higher and the lapbelts prevent much of that view, especially for kids.

EDIT: Looks like camping world sells a replacement: http://www.campingworld.com/shopping...ndow-kit/74221

Does anyone have experience with this kit? The reviews look promising.
