Welcome to Cruiser world
     Not much to add,  you have what I call the debug period, new unit, get all the bugs out and good to roll.  Make sure you read the tips section,, all kinds of little things you can do to make your unit more comfortable.    We carry a broom and small battery charged vacuum. I just keep two pair of shoes house shoes, and outside shoes.....On dumping,  I hardly ever go more than a day or two without dumping,, after I dump, I use Calgon water softener,, 2cups of Calgon gallon of water,  pour 1/3 gray, shower,   2/3 toilet.  do not use any thing else never a problem with smell or crud,, about 3dump flush the tanks,,, so a lot depends upon what kind of camping you do. let us know about the vibration problem and keep us posted on it... again welcome

   welcome and hopefully welcome to a Cruiser,,, I can only talk about 2350,,,, we previously owned a roadtrek 210 loved it but wanted something a little bigger.. found a used PC and knowing the quality purchased it out of Seattle, we live in Houston,,, we have no problems handling the unit anywhere, my wife drives a lot and enjoys driving it.   you do move up from the 350 to the 450 Ford so they are a little larger if you go with the 52,,, a lot of guys/gals do not like the bed set up for the 2350 but we do not have a problem with it. hopefully you can find some units close by to inspect and look over, have you contacted the factory to see if any are available?.. good luck

good pic Ron,,,, I'm in storage, but might go out next week will drive around if I do.....  Ok I can see the gutter rail where the cap is going to be set,,, want they have to fix some support at the cut area and where the liner and shelving goes?  I can imagine the cap being placed on the cab, liner in place maybe some caulking, then screwing it down like some of the guys have mentioned.  Wonder how hard to take the bottom of the two cabinets or Tv cabinet out?  Maybe you could see the screw line where they attached the cap.  Hate for you have to take out that headliner  ouch what a job,,,,,, Might want to call the PC factory get some suggestions...   good luck and be carful around that metal edge

    tks for letting us know,,, goes back to Brand New unit and getting the bugs out,,, someone had a bad day or ?? when they attached your cap on the 2350  ,,,, I'm just hoping that Ron's problem is not the same,,, hopefully will hear from some othet owners if they had this problem.   He does such a good job, I know he will get it figured out and let us know

Yuck,,, do not like the sound of a creak,, rather would like to hear a banging sound,,, Lmichael advised he had to go get his cap reset,, was it brand new???    Ron you have been on the forum a lot longer than me,,,, I think I just about read every post ,, do not remember seeing this problem before,,,,, I have fingers crossed that you find something else. Know you will keep us posted  good luck

   Ron I had posted earlier about a small leak on our unit while driving at the cap area, , you have probably diagnose my problem it leaks when raining and were driving.. I caulked once,,, leak is now smaller
 
 Also is the noise all the time or only when you hit a rough patch, since you described a banging I'm assuming when you hit some rough patch on the road??  Something loose,,,, did you check those two outlet boxes, we have two, pass side cabinet, IF the back of them came loose, hitting that cap would be noisy,,, we also have those courtesy lights about the mirror, same thing,,. only thing I can think of,,,, keep us posted which I know you will

Bob   the screws you are talking about are they visible?   I replace nearly every screw on the outside of my unit with stainless when I first got it back in Jan. Lots of rust and corrosion on the one I replaced.

Very nice pics and informative  do they allow walk-ins at the factory????   If so might do a drop in one if in the area,,,, I like seeing that kind of stuff anyway,  I'm always amazed at how they make stuff,  anyone involved in making things you be proud of what they do or did in their life.

Ron I 100% disagree with your analysis, you must be thinking about ???,,, how could you think that the ???
 dad come it I'm so funny,,, haha,,,,   by 2cents,   we first need to ask the design guys at PC,,, I'm betting the whole piece is two parts and funnels down to where the window is.... I also bet when the make the end piece it's all one piece, they then cut the rear piece where the rear storage locker is,(would not take a bet on that one though),, door is different material...   going from memory, but are not most of the PC's the same in the rear... Now I have to look at tires for cracking, rear caps on Rv's and see how they are designed,, thks ron more jobs for me haha

Sue    well said,,, purpose of the forum is for us to DISCUSS, GIVE IDEALS, OPINIONS  to help each other,    example I have stolen many of Ron D.'s  tips and made them much better haha, just kidding,,, I take a lot of the tips, maybe copy them exact, or modify them... now when we discuss beds, size of vehicles etc, we are getting into personal preferences,,,  I like the smallest RV possible, why, wife loves to drive, easier for her, easier to drive, a little better mpg, overall cost cheaper,,,,, do I give up some things absolutely... I don't mind buying a used unit, I'm handy, do not mind fixing things,  some people are not,,,,
    Lots of people say things on the forum I do not agree to or would never do,,,, I respect their opinion, and if I want to comment,, I do not start out with I disagree,,, I state t We like to,, Or I use this method,    A lot of the questions that are asked are very good, a lot or dumb, but that's the price you pay.... Aimee does a great job moderating our forum.. I have been on some that talk politics and junk, I do a quick unsubscribe    Ron speaking of a picture,,, the dumbest thing is on the back of the PC   PHOENIXCRUISER.COM   I have had two people where I rented this unit from haha  any way have great day,,, summer drawing to an end tired of the heat.

  Ron,
    I guess someone zinged you haha,, why???? your just giving an opinion.. we also have the corner bed, yes, it is a little pain in the rear, especially when you throw in our 105lb puppy dog. Now let me say one thing when we RV we move around a lot,,from place to place.  We stay up late, get up early, so the comfort of the bed is to sleep.. .now maybe in the future when we plan some extended stops, the bed might make a difference, but I doubt it,  Heck if I wanted to sleep I just would stay home

Mike
    when I first started Rving,,, we had a roadtrek,,, I got on the RT forum and asked for a couple of guys to mentor me,, got two people who I could write directly via email and ask all the so called "dumb" newbie questions to them directly,   Most of the PC's are the same just different lengths,,  why don't you get on the forum and ask someone to mentor you.  I'm sure someone would be glad to do that,,  I will be glad to answer any questions if you want to write me via email. I do not consider myself an expert YET haha,,, but I love to help out,,, lots of people have helped me.

   BTW,  you live in Cali,,,, are you picking up at the factory??
