Mark,
     Just got back from a 5488 mile trip from Peoria, Ill to Tillamook, OR. down to LA, CA along the coast and back to Peoria through Denver, CO. Using 677.39 Gal. of fuel. Ended up with a 8.102 MPG. I have the PC3100. Going from 7.3 to 9.0 MPG. with a lot of stop and go, and up and down, got to 15 feet below sea level and and high as 11567 feet above sea level. at the 11000 ft mark I was only going 35 MPH, most of the highway driving was 55 to 65 MPH, CA limit towing to 55.

We had the same problem with our on our trip to OR & CA. Its turned out to be a bad fuel pump, had it repaired under warranty. Found out the Onan had gotten a lot of bad fuel pumps this year, might want to check it out

Mike,
      50 amp is not over kill. That said you will be glade to have the 50 amps on a very hot day and you can run the AC, Ele. Water Heater, and the Microwave all at the same time. I have 50 amp in my 3100 and love it. I didn't get the internal surge guard, mine is addon at post. I was going to get the 2nd fan until I found out it was only going to ba about $200 different for the extra AC in the bed room, We love it. The bed room is darker and we can run the fan only with the windows open or just the AC. Don't know if your unit is hard wired or uses the adapter on the outside, mine has the adapter and I made up extra cords for 30 an 20 amps so I don't have to use the dog bone adapter. I like the extra you addedto your and we have most of them but not all. Love the 3100 and I'm sure you will love yours also. Happy traveing. Hope you see you down the road.

Alan,
      My 3100 has a Marinco Shore Power outside plug in for the power on the side the unit at the inlet water. Here's a picture of the type of plug I have. ( http://www.fisheriessupply.com/marinco-50-amp-125-250v-stainless-steel-easy-lock-shore-power-inlet ) If you are direct wired then you will have to use the adapters.

Hello,
      Another think about the low voltage, if it fall below 108 you will burn out you Air Conditioner. I have 50 amp on my 3100 and have a cord made up for 50, 30, and 20 amps. That what you get when you work as an electrician for 25 years. I know it over kill but I don't like using adapter on electrical cords, I've seen too many of them burn up from loose fitting. Just my 2 cents worth. You did the right thing using the 20 amp plug at 120 v. Most likely the 30 amp plug has a loose connection and the wire is burning up inside the post.

Yes it will work, we had Bob at PC install the antenna on top of the 3100 for us.

Holly,
      Check you shore power, sounds like you are drawing too many amps and drawing down the voltage when the compress come on. Check your power plug and see if it's getting warm. If it is then get a volt meter and check out the voltage at the plug

Hi,
     I must need hearing aids, we have 2 ac units in our 3100, and we run both of them at night when it's hot. sleeping is no problem for the both of us. watching tv is not a problem, most of the time, if the living room ac is on low, with high then we have a problem.

Hello all,
      I got lucky, I was at the factory for some minor repaires on our new 3100, had them check the Awning and it was on the list so I stayed another day and had it repaired, I think Carol said I was next to the last person to have it fixed.

frecklestweety,
     Just got back from our first run in our new 3100, Left from Peoria, IL headed for Searcy, AR, then on to Mountain Home, AR to see a friend. From there we when over to Bentonville, AR to see the Norman Rockwell exhibition at the new Wal-Mart sponsored art museum, Crystal Bridges. Very nice place, and it free except for the Norman Rockwell exhibition. Lots of walking trails and a very nice museum. From there we headed to Branson, MO for a couple of days. Then back to Peoria, IL. Now the answer of the post, first tank of fuel I got 7.5 MPG, running 63 MPR with a 25 MPH side wind. From there the wind died down and ran through the back road of AR ansd MO getting 8.9 MPG, leaving Branson, MO to Peoria, IL mostly on Interstate, running 63 MPH ended up with 9.5 MPG.

Billy,
     What kind of cap did you put on the outside end og the post? When I did this for my 5th wheel, I added a snap clip on each side of the cap to hold it on. I'm planning to add 2 of these, one for the hose and the other to hold ham radio antennas.
