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.

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

 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.

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.

    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
53  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Second Opinion on tires from previous discussion on: August 04, 2013, 06:22:11 pm
I wrote recently about camping world telling me that my tires are starting to dry rot. They are 2008 tires that look like new in tread etc and only have 22,000 miles on them.  Well I took it to my local service shop, family owned, and they inspected them and said they look fine and did not see what camping world was talking about.  I since have coated them with 303 protectant as suggested in this formum and they look fine.  Wash the MH and took care of the cleaning the tanks and we should be good to go to the reunion  I feel a load has been taken off my back.  I have covers and will use them as I have always done previously on my other MH.
thanks for all the suggestions previously made. 
This post has brought up many thoughts and suggestions on the tire issue. It has been very informative .  I plan only two more trips before putting MH to bed for the winter in the Pole Bran.  So lets hope all goes well and might consider new tires for the spring. There have been many pros and cons on the subject and food for thought.
thanks

Armourall will do the opposite. The tires will dry out & crack.

The best product, it really softens vinyl & rubber is 303 Protectorant.

I use it on the vinyl cover of my 10 year old hot tub and it is still soft & liable.
thanks a bunch. I will return the unused bot of armourall and try the auto store for the 303  stuff.

We all have opinions on tires that is for sure!  I would for kicks check with Michelin to see if there is not something they might do to compensate you and get you into a new set of tires in consideration of the fact that yours appear to have not lasted as along as they should have. I have had superior luck with Michelin standing behind their product 150%.  As far as where tires are made you might want to read on the sidewalls, Michelin maybe a French company but all of their N. America tires are made here in the USA.  Bridgestone makes all of their N. American tires here in Firestone plants.  It is a world economy these days.  Again, my vote would be to go with Michelin's, they are worth every cent you pay extra for them.   best of luck, Ron
Thanks I will contact Michlelin and see what they say.  I will take MH to the Auto/truck shop who has inspected my previous MH and done work for me and see what they say.  they are family owned and have been in business for years and trust they will give me good advice.  Thank goodness for this forum.  It has helped many ways.  Looking forward to the reunion. Pray for good weather.

PC does not sell tires.

Stick with Michelin if you really need them. Your unit is not that old, you can push those dates if tires don't have big cracks.
Use 303 Protectorant on your sidewalls, it really does help protect them. NEVER use Armourall.

Shop around for price and make sure the price includes, mounting, balancing, disposal, etc.

Sam's Club can probably order them for you as well as Costco.
With Sam's as long as RV is under 10' tall they will do them.
When 2551's were on a E350 they fit, not sure if E450 will fit or not.
  What is you experience with ARmourall.  I just bought and can return Armourall Protectant.  They have been around for years.  I was going to wash the tires with the cleaner and then apply this Armourall Extreme Tire Shine.  ????  Plus I don't belong to Sam's or Costco club.

Always get second opinion on tires,,, how many miles.on yours,, going to assume stored outside. again another topic we have covered and how bad the sun is on the units and the tires.                                        I noticed I believe yours is a  2010,,, wow, that's not good, I'm running around 2008 tires same year no problem. 15000miles on them... research this on the forum, we have had lots of discussions on tires, cracking, uv, etc.... 

If you do get tires post where you got them and let us know the cost so we can all go out and get a better deal haha..... also absolutely make sure you go get the RV aligned....

   PC has 22000 miles on her. When I got it in January this year it has already 20,000 on PC.  I keep the MH garaged and always cover the tires when I am staying any length of time in camp.  They are 2008 tires but have performed well.  So I will get that second opinion  hopefully next week.
  thanks

   When Camping World said my tires are starting to Dry Rot I could have fainted.  So I will get a second opinion. But was wondering if the PC factory would be the place to go as we head to the reunion and stop at PC factory on the way. Of course I would call ahead.
   Or should, if second opinion is the same, I do it before heading anywhere.  Don't leave home for reunion until Aug 22 taking my time.  I don't need a blowout.   What should I expect in cost.  Camping world wants $1000.plus for Good Year tires which includes mounting, balancing, getting rid of tires. They have the gaul of charging 7.50 for shop towels on top of that. Very irratating. 
  What brand is a good rated tire?  I have Michelins now. They look brand new but the former owner did not protect them.
 Help

  As far as the braking systems, I have had US Gear in my previous and now my PC. When I traded to the PC I had the mechanic take out the system in the Yellowstone and installed in the PC.  In the beginning when I had it installed in the MH and the tow vehicle, it was expensive, as I am not mechanically inclined, but it has been worth the $$.  Once it is installed you don't have to remove anything like you do with Brake Buddy, etc.  I have heard some good and bad stories about removable brake systems.  If and when I decide to change my tow vehicle I will make sure the componant parts are removed and the mechanic can order the wiring. as they did when they removed the parts from the MH to install in the Phoenix. 
 It is so important to have a braking system for if you were ever in an accident, which I hope no one will be, It is for your assurance that you will be safe from any legal problems.
  Sure hope this helps as this has been quite a discussion and sharing on this topic.  It is so important to be safe and not sorry.

   Happy camping!!!
