I had a cable break on our couch about 2 months after we took delivery last year. It is a relatively easy replacement  if you don't have time to get back to the factory. In the meantime you can you use a stiff stick like a yardstick to activate and release the latch by leaning over the back of the couch. We had to do that for about 6 months until we got back near Elkhart.

We have a 2400 that came with a memory foam couch that converts to a queen size bed. We find it to be very comfortable.
33  Main Forum / General Discussion / Rear valve stem extenders on: January 22, 2013, 11:08:56 pm
I've had repeated problems with the passenger side rear wheel valve stem extenders working loose on trips resulting in slow air leaks to the inside rear tire. I tighten the extender and the air leak stops for a while. It seems to work loose every 3000-5000 miles. I love the convenience of the extenders, but concerned about repeated problem. No problem with drivers side....I even switched the driver side and passenger side extenders and still had the same problem. Anyone have same issue? Saw the earlier posting on loose valve cores. This is the extender that works loose and causes an air leak. Any simple suggestions for securing the extender without causing other problems?

We have also had issues with the footrest not latching properly. The first time it was a kinked cable between the front release and rear latch. It was replaced at the factory. After that the latch was sticking and I put a little WD40 on it and it has been fine since. The rear latch is visible by looking over the back at the floor.

 We are also experiencing  a similar problem.  We adjusted the bolt that activates the switch and that helped except  when it is raining. I expected to find bare wires shorting out but so far it defies resolution...no bare spots visible

Thank you for all the information. With the current model thermostat you can run either the furnace or the heat strip but not both at the same time. The furnace works fine. The generator seems to be working fine. I'll have the heat strip checked out next time we travel thru  Elkhart.

I was out over the weekend running my generator  and turned on the a/c unit heat strip to give the generator some load. I ran the generator and heat strip for about an hour and the unit continued to blow cold air the whole time. Outside air temp was +15F and the inside never did get warm even with the thermostat set at 80. Does anyone know if the heat strip tries to heat the outside air or does it recycle the air inside the unit?  This is the first time I've tried to use the heat strip since we took delivery last April.

I think that Ron raises valid points. I don't want to spend more on my next PC to support fancy photos, but we were surprised when we saw our FB Sterling PC. We selected the color based on catalog and website photos and seeing a lower body sterling unit. Full body paint is a major investment and it is everyone's interest to avoid surprises.

Just went out and measured the height of the leveling jacks...front and rear have the same ground clearance. Quigley has a great rep for quality and durability of their conversions up here in Alaska. Lots of ambulances and school buses  have the package. As for question regarding Anchorage...there are only three reasons to go there...Moose's Tooth Pizza....Costco....and to drive thru in order to go somewhere else.

We are the proud owners of the latest 4X4 PC. We took delivery on 4/10 and returned home to Alaska via detours  to  several locations as far east as Cape Cod. We put on 6,500 miles and averaged  8.6 mpg. It rides like a truck but have you taken a ride in a F150 lately? It handles nicely and is very stable in strong crosswinds. We used  the 4X4 in a snowstorm in the Canadian Rockies. It was very functional. We bought 4X4 because we live in Alaska. We are very happy we did.
