Janey... Glad for the magic moment with your battery problem.  The E02 code, I assume was from the inverter or Charger (Xantrex), whatever your coach is configured with.  This is what that trouble code means:

E02 High battery voltage
shutdown
(> 15.5 Vdc)
Inverting Check for external charging sources, such
as an over voltage alternator, and
disconnect if necessary

As you can see, the cause was from an overvoltage condition.  Since everything is working now, we can only assume it's one of those electronic flukes that caused the problem, much like why we RE-boot our computers occasionally. 

Happy camping

Our 2012 E350 now has 55k+.  Been a good runner.  Only problem was seat belt broke when very new.  Ford took care of it promptly.
(Nice to have dealers all over the place, even in remote area's)

Barbara and I get most of our towing and Tire problems covered by our insurance  coverage on our rig.
We don't use AAA for mapping and other things.

but just saying, our insurance company rider takes care of the major issues, for much less.

Thanks Ron for your info. Yep, we do live in northern Wisconsin, but looking at a AC mainly for an extended stay at our 2nd home of Arizona. Usually cool enuf in Wisconsin here.

Well, I googled for problem with solar panels too close to AC, so realize that there is no AC snorkel available to raise AC above the solar panels. So Solar has to be remounted to accommodate the footprint of Mr. AC.  Ok I can live with that. Was up on roof today measuring.  Not a show-stopper. BTW,had PC pre wired for AC. So wires and circuit breaker are already there. But may have local RV dealer install AC as the physical weight may be more than my buddies and I want to tackle.

Also googled some of more popular AC's for Motorhomes.   What do you or others think of this one?   Atwood 15025 Air Command 13,5K BTU Non-Ducted White RV AC . ... https://www.my12voltstore.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProductCode=15025&gclid=CjwKEAjw387JBRDPtJePvOej8kASJADkV9TLxK08y9zM0JNdPw-PmYoySFbD3aqFq4PzkUdiyeTYqhoCqV_w_wcB

Anyone have any feedback as to what the best air conditioner is for rv's such as the PC 2350? Am thinking of getting one installed this summer. At present I don't have one. I have solar panels that come within 12 inches of proposed location, protruding maybe a couple of inches high.  Wondering if a riser kit is available if needed.

Nicki; I think Barry summed it up pretty well.  Thanks Barry for you research and comments. 

My AP version did require as I mentioned, making a bezel.  Below, is another idea, although a bit more pricier.

As far as battery life, I installed back in August 16, and replaced the batteries once so far in February.

Barry and Sue,
I think you will really enjoy not having to carry your keys around any longer.  Even when parked at home, sometimes outside, the doors are locked. So when one needs to just gain entry to retrieve something, you don't need to fetch the keys. Nice

We went with this system: thread --  http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,2463.msg19904.html#msg19904

Believe your system maybe better, as you probably didn't need to build a bezel, as its footprint is smaller than the PC's.

Our 2350 is our downsized house for 6 months of the winter months, from our 4000 sq ft home back in Wisconsin, which is our summer home. Is the 2350 a compromise?  Yep it is, but when in the Warm Sunny climate of Arizona, one does not spend much time in the RV.   We do fine with this compromise and change in our life.

Am sorry also. Didn't know it was about a Midwest rally.  But was about a State Lookup Table  on members.
I would be interested in a midwest rally, as I live in NC Wisconsin.

Didn't downsize here, but don't like the Pushers as they don't protect driver, passenger much. Not much steel protection.   

Saying that, I have also, as others here as mentioned, tried to keep a short profile for getting into the Nation Forests, ETC.

If ones desires is to just do commercial campgrounds, than stay Big.

But if on is to wanting to see the great outdoors that our Lord has given us, then we need to stay smaller and agile.

We do pull a 12 foot enclosed trailer that houses a UTV side by side, that gives us even more agility once at our destination.

We just arrived home safely today, after a 6 month stay in Arizona. Yep, 6 months in our little 2350 PC.  Was not a problem for us.

Put 4000+ miles on the PC to get to Arizona and back home to Wisconsin, But, But... 2300 miles on the UTV/side by side, exploring the many God designed beauties and creations, there in Arizona.   God is Good!   (maybe even a bit depressed, now that am home?)

Curious, is that all it takes to power radio from House Batteries?

Valves can be operated manually, but will take a bit of crawling under the vehicle to access the handles. Once under there, one can see that the electrical driven ratchet arm, can be unscrewed from the Valve shaft.   Once separated, the valves can be used in a manual mode lake any other.

Our driver's seat and Euro Chair are both flaking. I would like Phoenix or Paul's, to make good on this.  And not by just replacinng fabric with cheap junk again.

Instead of ax an or saw, we use Black and Decker battery operated chain saw for fire wood.  Google it!. Works.
