31  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: "TOW Haul" feature as shown on dash and trans light keeps coming on. on: October 11, 2013, 07:35:30 pm
I have the same PC as yours, 2010 2551, and I tow a Jeep Wrangler.  I use the "Tow Haul" feature because it changes the shift points so the transmission doesn't keep changing gears so much on hilly terrain.  I think it is easier on the transmission because it doesn't have to shift so often in those situations.  I especially like it when descending mountain grades to keep from overheating the brakes, it does a great job holding the speed on descents.  When cruising on flat freeways I turn off the "Tow Haul".  Don't really need to since the transmission will still go into overdrive in "Tow Haul" mode, but I don't like how it feels when coming to a stop in "Tow Haul" - hard downshifting.

I am curious about the transmission light problem, I went out and turned the key on and checked the manual and I don't see a warning light specifically for the transmission, can you describe it in a little more detail.

Bob  checked the manual again and the icon means service engine soon.  I just had it inspected and all the fluids checked and they were fine
before I left from home a week ago.  So don'tknow what else it could be....I am in Bluff Tn and will leave on Monday for Stone Mountain GA and stayed until the 16th when I will go into the Good Sam Rally at the Atanta Speedway.

  I have used the "Tow Haul" feature when towing my saturn vue behind the PC.  What is everyones opinion on this.  Does it help the transmission.  Plus the trans light comes on even when there is sufficient fluid .  I just had motorhome inspected a week ago and all was well with the fluids.  The light went on just as we were on our second leg of out trip.  We stopped and checked the fluids and they were find.  disconnected battery cables and the light did not go out this time.?????  I hate sensors.  PC road fine with no problems so what can it be.   Should I be using the Tow Haul all the time.  I don't think it has anything to do with the trans light.?????   Any suggestions..... Help

Can you tell us where in the coach the loose connection was located?
We were near the end of our 180 mile trip today when the rear view monitor became very dim and then turned completely blue for a short time.  Then the dim image reappeared.  Sounds something like what you experienced.
I haven't had time to start looking for the problem and we plan to be on our way again early tomorrow (Sunday) and hope you can help me locate a loose connection.

All I know is that William at the RV place just pulled all the wiring out from the camera and taped all the connections so that if we hid some rough road we shouldn't have any problems with coming undone.  Their was one connection that was loose. He also change the channel wave to AV-2, whatever that means.  It is working fine now.  He also lowered the TV and did the connections there also.
Hope this helps.  It is something I wouldn't try to do myself. Leaving it up to the RV people.  Have a safe trip..... Cheer

  Took MH to local Millers Rv service in Honeybrook, Pa and they found a loose wire with the backup camera and they taped all the coneections so if I hid a bump in the road it wont come loose again. So I did not have to get a new camera.
    they also blew out the lines in the refrigerator so the propane automatically will turn on when I disconnect the shore power.  Must of had a cobweb or some speck of dirt in the line..
   MH passed inspection and we are ready to head to Good Sam Rally in Atanta Ga and hope for good weather.  This will be our last trip before we will winterize it for  the winter and store in the Pole Barn until Spring.

On my last leg towards home, the video camera has just a blue screen.  Leaving the Pine Ridge campground near Frandenmuth decided not to work right.   Called the mfg and he said a wire must have come loose from buppy ride?  Ive done almost 1000 miles and had no problem. Of course the wiring is behind the TV of which I cannot check until I get home and hope for the best that the car will be ok.  So far it has a crack in the windsheild which will be fixed when I get home.   
  Anyone else have this problem. Hopefully it will be easy to fix with my son's help. 
Talked to Carol and the former owner just had cables installed and he purchased the cameria system from the company.  Talke to the RV Cams, Inc and I have to check out the cabels.  So I will inlist my son next door and see what he can find out.
Than ks for all the replies.....

The cable I mentioned connects to the camera in the cavity in the back of the PC.  The camera has a short cable that connects to a longer cable that goes down the back, under the bottom and up to the monitor.  The slack in this cable can be pulled up by removing the light where the cable enters the back of the PC.
ok. Will check it out. thanks.  I called the factory and talked to Carol and she was to get back to me. the former owner of my coach did not get the camera/monitor from PC. Ordered it direct from RV Cams Inc. and evidently installed it themselves so Carol had to do some research and was to get backto me today.  Still waiting.  Will call her again.

I agree with Skipper--you really should not need a screen. We have lived in FL for 17 years now and the only bug issue that we have encountered is the Love Bugs. On our way back home from the Grand Canyon two weeks ago, we had to wash them off twice--both times in N. Florida. We thought that we would have millions of deceased bugs splattered on the windshield when we drove down 75 to Punta Gorda but not one! Go figure!

Don't waste your time and $$$. They should be gone by the time you get to FL.

Thanks for the update on the screening.   Will take your advice and not bother with a screen.  Will just wipe them off.  Going to Good Sam Rally in October and then venture down to Disney by end of October to meet my daughter in Disney..and head towards home about Nov.9th.

Plan to travel south to Disney next month and was advised that I should have a bug screen on the front of the PC.  What is everyones opinion and where is the best place to get one.  I have real fine screenng on a role but I think it would be a chore to make it and cannot figure how to keep it on .  Any suggestions.   ?????

I had this problem on my first PC.  Someone on this forum advised me to pull the cable from the back of the PC and check the connection to the cable going to the front.  I pulled the cable by removing one of the top lights, unhooked/reconnected the two cables, taped them to make sure the connection was tight and stayed tight, and the monitor worked perfectly thereafter.
  spoke to Kermit today and he said it was the camera that was the problem.
   I will check out the cables to the camera and monitor. All wiring is behind the TV up front which I do not know how to get into.

I've had two sony monitors go out on me Kermit says if it a blue screen it is usually the camera, if it is blank it is normally the monitor. Still waiting on the second monitor. Factory replaced the first one, didn't feel like driving to get second one installed so I asked them to send one to me. I hope this doesn't keep happening, theis is the second in less than a year.

Jim
thanks for the update. Will call factory this week.  Had to keep checking on my car thru the bathroom window.

Didn't every toll booth operator let you know your car was still there?   LOL rolling on the floor
there were no toll booth operators. all automated.

42  Main Forum / General Discussion / Petosky Reunion on: September 12, 2013, 07:15:01 pm
 I really had a great time at the PC Rally in Petosky Michigan and met some wonderful PC members.  Campground was terrific and the programs that were planned were great also.   Looking forward to the next reunion in Colorado Springs CO.
   Also anyone planning to stop in Frankenmuth, MI I can suggest another campground  besides Jelly Stone and only 4 miles out from Frankenmuth.  It was Pine Ridge RV park was very nice especially when it was only $37.00 a nite.  Level sites and all have full hookups. Lots of Pull thrus.
   On my way back to PA, we stayed in KOA streetsboro, Oh which was also a good camp. Stayed one nite and will head for Cochranville and looking forward to sleep in my own bed.
   Next trip out is Good Sam Rally in Atalnta GA in October.
    Again, Enjoyed meeting everyone at the rally.

45  Main Forum / General Discussion / Any good campgrounds between Elkhart IN and Potosky MI on: August 30, 2013, 09:01:15 pm
    Presently staying in Shipshewana Campground in Shipshewana IN and it is great. Very Clean and level sites.  Its almost 290 miles between Here and Potosky.  Will be leaving here Tuesday to stop in PC Elkhart Factory for some minor repairs in the morning and will leave there to head north to MI.   Thought about going straight to Potosky and staying a couple of extra days before the reunion.2n
Any suggestions from those traveling this way....? 
    Left home on the 22nd and have been to Portersville Pa and then on to Sandusky OHio and now here.  Sandusky camp is a passport america camp. they need to update their showers and do some update in the camp. Campsites were all grass  and pretty level and the mosquitoes were biting. Bear Creek Campground in Portersville Pa was a great camp and I would stay there again. 
  Looking forward to the reunion.  Heart Shower
