Greg,  Thanks for your reply.  I'd love to see a photo of you at work on the ladder and foam rubber!   LOL

Denny,  Thanks for your reply.  I'm hoping that someone on this forum will tell us that the roof material has UV protection built in to it.  Someone has likely asked Kermit about this.

Is it important to apply some type of UV protection to the roof?  It seems to be made of material different from that on the rest of the body.  I don't think it would be a good idea to apply wax up there.  Maybe use 303 protectant?  What do you do?

Another great idea!  Thanks for sharing.

Hello JJ,
Welcome to the forum.  I think you will enjoy participating here.
Your rig looks almost identical to ours, but our CR-V is gray. Smile

I've finally had time apply UV protection on our new 2350 as recommended by Diamond Shield.  Is it important to put some type of UV protection on the roof, too?  The roof seems to be made of material different from that on the rest of the body.  I don't think it would be a good idea to apply wax up there.

Aimee,
I have two questions about the Directions for the TV/DVD:
1.  Did Samsung change the size of the remote controls?  In our new 2350 model the small remote is designed for the TV which is opposite from the Directions (not a real problem now, but I was confused for a while), and
2.  To get the surround sound to work, must I go thru the Directions' procedures each time I turn on the set?  I haven't been able to get the surround sound to work at all.  I've only been watching TV via cable, listening to the radio (with very poor reception), and listening to music on CD's.

If I tried to carry a motorcycle on the back of our 2013 2350 on the E350 chassis, the weight limit would surely be exceeded.  We found that our real axle weight was almost at the manufacturer's stated limit when we used it on our first trip back in April.  We had no unusual weight on board at the time, and I'm now very reluctant to store anything more near the back end.

Yes, you can run the coach air conditioner while in motion, if you have the coach generator running.

This is an update on our earlier posting re battery status:
Visited the coach in storage lot after two days.  The XM1800 inverter panel now shows "Input Voltage" of only 12.3, so we're back to where we were before running the generator to recharge the batteries.  No time to deal with this until we return from our non-RV trip near the end of June.

Sharon has always claimed that climbing ladders is my favorite hobby because we own so many!   Smile
Now that I've almost reached 73, she's worrying even more that I'll do something too stupid up there.  I'm happy to hear at least two other 2350 owners understand my dilemma . ThankYou

Denny,  Laying on my belly on the roof to clean as much as I can reach is what I always did with our previous RV, so I don't think that is stupid or crazy--just making sure we don't try to go too far.  A ladder for the vertical front portion is what I did before because I could get the ladder up close to the Class A coach.  The Ford chassis makes this seem impossible for me to reach all the way to the center section without standing on the hood (I'm only 5'6" tall).  I'd love to have a picture of you doing this.   Smile  Maybe it would take a ladder on each side with a plank across to make a scaffold--that does sound crazy!

Thanks for the quick replies!
The temperature here on the Monterey Bay was probably about 58 degrees on the morning I took the voltage readings.  Unless the SOC levels for 58 is much different than the 80 degree levels on Barry's chart, the 12.5 volt reading on my XM1800 display means that our batteries are about 82% charged.  Running the generator for about 30 minutes (with no other load on) raised the SOC by about 15%.
I'm assuming that we can go away on our three week non-RV trip on Wednesday and not worry about those batteries.  I don't have the ability to leave a trickle charger on them while in storage, but at least will put them in the "store" position.  Our previous RV had a small solar panel on the roof to take care of this--makes me consider adding one to our 2350.

How do you clean/polish the front part of the roof from where it slopes down to the windshield?
I've been using a long handled mop to wash dirt, etc. from there, but don't think that will work for bug splatter we'll likely get this summer.
