Does the heater work on LP?
kevin
yes but water never gets hot, just warm and it takes a long time.

Might also check the breaker.  Could have tripped after starting to heat the water leaving it only warm.
checked the breaker and it was not tripped.

Turned on the switch for electric hot water heater and get warm water.  It work great last season.   Is there an adjustment outside.   On my second leg of my trip on my way to Shipshewanna IN.  Going back to the old way of boiling water for needs and using campground showers.  WE stayed in the KOA in Gettysburg and it was a great camp.  All sites are level and just the right size.   WE are in KOA in Bellfonte PA and it is also a very nice camp with level sites and cement pads.  We have been spoiled in not having to level the MH.  l
 Hope to go to the factory and see if we can't solve this problem while we are near by...... Cheer

Just on my first trip out and still having problems with switching over to gas when off shore power.  Before it would switch over (last season) but as I traveled it gave an error message. now it doesn't even turn on to gas.   I will be near the factory and thought it best to make an appointment. We will be staying in Shipshewanna and Elkhart is not that far. We are traveling short distances so the food does stay cold but it is frustrating not knowing how to fix it myself.   Any suggestions.   
Thanks for the info. Also the electric hot water is giving me problems but the propane hot water works ok. Prefer the electric hot water but will use what I have. Will try to work with refer on gas again. I have senior moments and forgot to turn the switch on at the bottom of steps for refer.   Dahh!!!

Just wondering how many are going to the reunion. I still have to send in my reservation. Could not due it before the deadline.  Wish it was a little closer as I have never traveled west before.  Hope there are spaces left. We had so much fun in Petoskey.  Plan to travel back to Shipshewana Indiana in the next few weeks. Hope to attend a quilt show and meander thru the flea market. Looking forward to another camping season.

I replaced my wipers with 22" blades last season and they are fine. Since the motor home is stored in the Pole barn they do not weather.  I had 20" and replaced them with the 22". Can't remember the brand but they work fine and clear a large area.
  Looking forward to getting the MH out and getting it ready for the season.  Hooray for Spring.

We were in the same position last summer.  Had the sofa with the airbed and it was the most uncomfortable sofa we have ever sat on.  We ordered a sofa by Villa from http://www.braddandhall.com/productcart/pc/home.asp.  Here is a link to our post on the new sofa.
http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,1450.msg10862.html#msg10862

We have used the sofa for the past three months in FL and it is very comfortable.  We too did not want to give up the storage drawer so adapted the old drawer to the new sofa.  We only live three hours from Elkhart so we were able to drive to Bradd and Hall, order it and have them install it.
Thank you for the info. I will call them and see what is involved  . Sofas they look nice

In My 2010, 2551 I have the most uncomfortable sofa that has the blow up air mattress under it plus the storage drawer. Thinking about getting the updated recliner chairs, sofa, etc. in replacement. Not sure what they cost plus the cost of traveling to the factory for installation. Plus I use the storage drawer under the sofa and would have to figure out where to store what is there.  Or find a way to make the present sofa more comfortable.  I don't plan on opening the sofa for a bed.  Just want to keep the MH for just two people.  It is small enough now to work around what we have to deal with.  It's nice and cozy as it is
  Any suggestions.  Looking forward to Spring and the first trip somewhere. 
Happy Camping

The current sofa is a dual recliner in that the two sections recline independent of each other. Watch some of the videos model to see it in action. Yes the sofa can be replaced with two chairs and a small table if you want.
This sofa in my 2551 2010 is the most uncomfortable sofa and don't plan on using the air mattress and would love to have the dual recliners.  Do I have to travel to Phoenix to get them installed?

We travel with the frig on propane for days at a time with no problems.

What error are you getting, we might be able to provide some info.

I get an" F "on the panel.  I have tried manually switching over and once I am on the road it goes to an "F" reading. So I punch it in again and for a few seconds it stays on Gas and then goes to the "F". It works okay as long as I am not traveling. As I stated above my RV service couldn't find the problem as it stayed on gas when he was not hook up to electric.

Seeing that your tires are only five years old, you should be able to get about 50K miles out of them and/or seven years. Is it the guy selling you the tires the one telling you that you need to replace them? Take your motorhome to a different tire dealer and get a second option.
Also the mechanic that services my car also told me that he thought the tires look ok. I drove the motorhome around to him to get his opinion as well after camping world gave me that news of starting to dry rot as well as my RV service said they should be ok. Now I will have to make a decision on way or the other and appreciate everyone's input.
After everyone's advice, I think I will get another season out of them.  Even my son  next door, who check them out ,said the same thing.  I will be getting the MH inspected this April before my trip to Kentucky and I can get another opinion.
It is always good in inquire and post on this forum as it is always good advice.  Looking forward to the Spring. thanks to all.

The fridge switches over to gas after unhooking from shore power but eventually goes off as we travel down the road and gives a fault message. My RV dealer said it works fine on its on when parked but he says it must go out when the outside air hits the fridge down the road .  He said I possibly could put something inside the outside cover while traveling and then remove it when parked so it can breathe. 
   There is always a discussion that you should not travel with the propane on. I only travel for about 5 hours at a time and the fridge stayed cold but it is just frustrating to have this problem. Any suggestions?
