76  Main Forum / General Discussion / leaking air conditioner and refrigerator is sweating inside. on: June 23, 2013, 04:54:52 pm
My air conditioner is dripping condensation from inside the coach onto the carpet.  I turned off the unit.  what could this be???  It was pretty hot here in santon, Pa at KOA and is was running ok at the last campground.   Someone told me that another camper had the same problem and his air conditioner quit.   I've never had this problem before.  I have a couple hundred miles to go before getting  back to my home tomorrow.  So we are running fans now and has cooled off some.  Help

Also the frige is sweating inside and I turned up the unit.  I am 90$ level so that can't be the problem.  My dometic frige in last unit was better than this norcold.  any suggestions????     I wish the frige was not on the slide out.

Just came back from a Good Sam Rally in Syracuse, NY and saw the 2013  2551 Phoenix Cruiser with a different type of awning than the one is presently on my 2551, 2010. Has anyone ever changed over to this new type.  It looks alot sturdier.  Phoenix displayed three units at the show and I got to speak to the new salesperson.  It was a great show dispite the horrible rain on thursday the 13th.  We got lucky and got a good spot in the fairgrounds.  the remaining days f,S,S went better with sunshine.

   So be interested in knowing about awnings. 
80  Main Forum / General Discussion / tank sensors, Can the new electonic sensors be installed on older models on: May 14, 2013, 05:17:25 pm
I see that the new Winnies have electronic senors on outside of the tanks.  It is so hard to clean the interior sensors. Since I got my coach they read 1/3 full and they are empty.  Plan to add a cleaning solution from camping world and back flushing to see if I can loosen some of the debre.  Does any one have anyother suggestions and can these electronic senors be added????  Smile

Recently heard a noise just above the entertainment stereo and thought it was something in the cabinet.  What I found out when we were riding that the noise was the ariel hitting the roof and felt the vibrations when I put my hand on the ceiling as my friend was driv ing.  So I bought felt pads and put them on the rubber feet of the ariel and will see if that helps when I go out next time.  I will keep you posted.
82  Main Forum / General Discussion / Good Sam Rally June 13-17th in NY Fairgrounds in Syracuse, Anyone Going? on: May 14, 2013, 05:05:29 pm
Always enjoy rallies and go when I can to meet people and learn more.   Was wondering if Phoenix Cruiser will be there.  What do most campers do when you need to fill up fresh water tank before going dry camping??.   Don't want to fill up at home and travel with that much water and was thinking of stopping in one of the state parks near by for one night and fill up.  they want  $30 to fill your tank at the rally which I don't care to do. What do other campers do???
83  Main Forum / General Discussion / Gas Mileage on: May 08, 2013, 11:11:17 am
My 2010 2551 Just returned from 1 month 1450 miles trip down south. Left from Gettysburg, PA to W.VA, to Georgetown, Ky to the largest quilt show in Paducah KY and started for home via Bristol, Tn to visit my brother and then to Gettysburg PA to rest up for the next 89 miles to home home.  Speed limit down south is 70 MPH and I kept it between 50 - 60 MPH and in calcutating I gain 13 MPH as I watched everyone pass me by.  Didn't feel comfortable to go faster as I felt a little sway in towing my Saturn Vue.   I was told i could have gotten  a ticket because I so slow???  A state trooper even past me.  This is the best MP gallon I've every had in mh.  It has been reported in FMCA mag that doing 55 saves on gas and I truly believe it now.
  Just wanted to share my good news. Wink

85  Main Forum / General Discussion / Connector for the Door is missing to hold the door totally open on: April 07, 2013, 04:01:31 pm
On my 20110 2551,  It seems the former owner did not have a connector on the motorhome to hold the door completely open.  On top of the door is a holder but the other part on the top of MN is missing but I see where it was orginally.  Where can I get another holder.  I can't use the screen door if I can't keep the door open with the wind blowing it shut. There is not place to even use a bungy cord.
Slowing findout different things that need my attention. I've only had the mh a few months. Finally got the macerator working after getting a new pump at a good price at local RV.  About the same price as the facory in talking with Kermit.
  Any suggestion on holding door open.
 Thanks  Smile

 I mentioned in the beginning of this discussion  about my maceratory not working. I  Finally had my macerator pump replaced .  It seems the former owner never took good care of the pump. All kinds of Nasty Stuff in it and it froze over the winter.   No wonder it did not work.   Found an RV Thetford in Honeybrook , PA, Millers RV, and it cost 285 for the pump and 135 for labor and it has a water outlet on the pump to back flush it and the pump  is easily removable for winter storage if necessary. Believe it or not it has its own carrying case for storage.  I felt this was fair since Stolztfus RV wanted 600 plus. 
   Millers RV were very accomodating and answered alot of my questions and would recommend them for service.   Heart Shower
 
87  Main Forum / General Discussion / reunion in Petosky, MI on: April 02, 2013, 05:36:07 pm
  Was wondering how many are showing interest in this reunion in September.  I never have been to one and was wondering what kind of weather I will deal with that time in September.  I have never had the opportunity to travel that far in MH.  Looking forward to seeing all PC owners and sharing stories. Embarrassed Plan to sign up soon.

 Talked to the factory and got a price for a new macerator pump and they were only about $60 more than the Thetford Dealer near my home.  They are charging me 1/3 the cost of the RV place I went to orginally and their labor cost is much cheaper. I am not mechanically inclined to install the new pump and it is worth is to me to have someone else do it.  I found a RV dealer in Honeybrook, PA who is a Thetford dealer and very nice people and will do more business with them.  Family owned for over 30 years .  The original dealer was going to charge 600 plus 120 labor.  Absolutely outragous.    I did dump the regular way this weekend but would like to use the macerator.   Wish it was insulated from the cold weather since it is out in the open...
Thanks for all the info. ThankYou
89  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: refrig won't switch over to gas automatically on: April 02, 2013, 05:12:00 pm
  So when I come off external camp electric I need to turn on the switch at the door for the batteries.  I guess that goes for the water pump too.  I do have it on auto but did not check on the switch on the door to see if it stayed lit.  OH well...

Just have to get used to the change from prior MH.

Thanks  ThankYou

  I was just at RV dealer near me and had them check the norcold refrig because it did not switch over to gas when I unplugged the electric. They did some burner service and replace a part supposively.  Do you have to turn on the batteries to make this happened. and drive this way. Never had to do this in my prior gulfstream coach.
  There are pros and cons on driving with the propane on as the frig will stay cold for a period of time while you travel.  But when you don't have electric available why won't the propane work.???  Also what is a good temperature to keep the frig at as some of my food froze in frig since this frig is part of the slide and is exposed to the weather temps.  This is a whole new experience for me to get used too. 

  This is one of the situations I am finding out after purchasing this coach.  When you buy used this is what happens. I am used to having a dometic frig and never had a norcold brand refrig.
