  1. Amazing job you did, Don. I don't have the skills (or tools, or workspace) or patience to do such a thorough make-over, but it still gave me lots of ideas. Thanks for posting!
  2. Amazon.com $39.97 for one screen, brand is Roadie. I'm using mine behind the drivers' door since that's not the door I use to enter the back of the van. The good news is that it just fits the side doors on my 2014 XLT LWB van. The bad news is that it covers the door handle completely, so you have to unzip the screen from the outside to reach under the fabric to get to the door handle. Don't know if it's worth the money yet (or whether I'll need one on both sides to make it work), but at least I have something for ventilation on my next trip.
  3. Hello all - I'm working on a camping vehicle like many of you and I wonder if anybody has any great ideas (or even better, photos) for leveling out the floor after removing the second row seats. I need the floor to be level at least behind the driver's seat because my bed (cot) sits along that wall and the legs need a sturdy level spot to rest on. The best I've come up with is a strip of plywood supported by a couple of 2X4's and laid across the gap. That sort of wastes the space underneath it though. Anybody have any better ideas?
  4. Thank you guys so much! I took out all my seats but not my carpeting, and I didn't check for anything under the carpet. Today I will. I have the factory installed hitch so if that's where the wires go, I won't be able to use the hole for anything else (e.g. shower drain). Thanks a million!!!
  5. Incidentally, thanks for the photos showing the passenger seat can be folded flat. I got my used 2014 TC LWB without a manual (supposedly, the dealer has requested one for me and will be sending it), and I didn't realize you could do that. Now mine looks like yours. It makes a nice table when you're eating in the car!
  6. Do you mean the black cap on the van floor in the foreground of this photo? Or something else? I can't see any other opening anywhere else in the photos.
  7. If you guys are still reading, can you tell me where is the "rubber exit plug"? Or post a photo of it? I have a 2014 TC LWB wagon, if that matters. I have a round rubber cap right near the back doors, but it looks like that's where the spare tire is bolted in. Is that where you're referring to, or something else?
  8. Thanks for the responses, GBL an Fifty150. The dealer wouldn't see me since it was a weekend, but my friendly local Advance Auto Parts sold me a cap that fits and keeps the oil from spraying, as well as the right oil to make up what was lost. I will go back to the dealer when they're open again and at least let them know what happened. Happily it seems no harm was done.
  9. I have what is probably a very dumb question. I bought a 2014 Ford Transit Connect LWB wagon a week ago. From a dealer. Without looking under the hood, I'm sorry to say. Last night I notice what I thought was engine oil dripping down the side of the car on the front passenger side. I opened the hood and it looked like oil sprayed all over the inside of the hood. So I look for the source of the oil and I notice that I'm not seeing an oil filler cap where I think it's supposed to be located. Could it be that the filler cap is missing? It's supposed to be brightly colored according to the manual. Not seeing anything like that. I'm guessing it has the oil specs printed on it. I can't find that in the manual. I need to add oil - don't know what kind/grade. The dipstick shows almost to a minimum. Anybody give me a hint as to what oil to use and what the oil cap is supposed to look like. Thanks a million.
