Air Forums is a great site

I totally agree. This forum has helped me in many ways and has given me ideas for remodeling my AS. I am still learning how to post so that more people can assist with answering my questions but so far I am very pleased. Just posting to the forum is helping me track what stage I am on in my remodeling effots. I have a long ways to go and look forward to sharing my expieriences with others as I learn. I am not going back to the original AS specs as my dream is to make the ultimate living machine. Upgrades will include; New skylights, front full bath with jacuzi tub, bilge pump gray tank water to clean blank tank, two 12 volt batteries with inverter, 50 amp breaker panel, electronics panel with digital gauges for monitoring everything, heat pump, functional bedroom with pull out coffee table, dining booth, bar with additional pullout singe bed, storage compartments built into flooring, and an auto leveling system. A lot of work to do. Thanks Air Forums!

Henry

Happy with our Dexter electro/hydraulic

System and so far, happy with our Denali.....we just should have done more homework and we would have known GMC brake controllers and Dexter electro/hydraulic brakes are not compatible.....we are not changing our brakes and we now have the Prodigy in the Denali (compliments of GMC) so we are good to go. Homework, homework......never enough.....something always to learn....and now on to our 82 MH.......yikes.....paula

brakes

My GMC Sierra 2500 had an integrated brake controller. I works with Airstream electric brakes. I converted my 2005 Safari 28 to electric/hydraulic brakes, similar to the Classic setup. (By the way what a difference!) The GM brake controller will not work with this setup. It is electric only. Unless GM has changed that this year that is. Ron

Our 2011 GMC Denali brake controller is now bypassed with a Prodigy installed by a local hitch shop where the dealer sent the car (West LA).
They botched the job but we luckily found someone to fix on a Friday afternoon when we were going to a rally.....the "shop" completely ignored the built in receptable and installed another one under the bumper that we would have had to lay down on the ground and look up to find.....the "lucky someone" had experience is fixing this particular "shop's" work.....GMC dealer paid for all the fixing......but we would have liked for the integrated controller to have worked....it looks nicer than the aftermarket Prodigy stuck on the GMC. paula
