76  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???
77  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

79  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
 
81  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
83  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
84  Main Forum / General Discussion / refrig won't switch over to gas automatically on: April 02, 2013, 11:26:50 am
  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.

85  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Swap single pane windows for dual pane? on: April 02, 2013, 11:17:09 am
I was going to inquire how you could insulate my 2010,2551 as the inside the cabinetry needs insulation from the heat and cold weather.  Would it be good to use carpet against the inside walls.  This coach sure isn't insulated as well as my last coach which was a gulf stream yellowstone.  My only savior in keeping the coach warm was a small electric heater and running the furnace once and awhile.  Im not sure I would go to the expense of double pane windows even though that sounds like a remedy.
  really appreciate everyones input. Smile
     
86  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: New tries for 2010 on: March 20, 2013, 08:41:49 am
This is one of my concerns since I purchased my 2010 2551 which had 20,000 miles on it.  Tires look almost new but again I don't know about if the spare was ever  used.    I am with Family Motor Coach and have been a member for almost ten years and they have a program with Michelin to save money on purchasing their tires with an authorized Michelin dealer.  Since I am going to travel West in the next month I have this concern also.  Don't know if this is of any help. HiThere

88  Main Forum / General Discussion / Maserator doesn't work on: March 12, 2013, 07:25:59 pm
Hi,   I posted this before and got alot of suggestions which i appreaciated.  I took it to the RV dealer in my area and found out the maserator is "toast" as they say.  But I can still dump the regualr way which I am used to.  They said it would be around 600 dollars plus labor and is not covered under my warranty.  So I said forget it. 
     I had a problem with the frig as it did not switch over from electric to propane  but they fixed that...
   Has anyone had this problem with the maserator and are they as good as they say....I am so used to the old way. The only thing is that you have to have electric to open the valves but I can deal with that....

  Getting ready for a trip to Paducah KY and later in May across the US to Wyoming. Looking forward to the trips.
   Be safe to all travelers.  Smile

Hi Everyone
  I belong to Family Motor Coach and they are celebrating their 50th Anniversay in Gillette Wyoming JUne 19 to the 22nd.  I have never traveled out west. Don't know how much time to allow for traveling and still enjoy the trip and not have to be in a hurry.  Really would like to go but maybe some seasoned travelers have some suggestions.  Don't know what kind of weather I will experience.  One thing I would love to do is Yellowstone National Park and would like to stop in Elkart, IN to see the factory, seeing it is on the way.  Otherwise postpone Elkart till PC September REunion.  That should be an experience in itself since I've never been to Michigan. 
  Enjoying my PC 2010 2551.
   Any suggestions?? ThankYou
