91  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

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

  Still doing my homework on it...

Thankis again.  Happy Trails to everyone and be safe.
94  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

That's your problem, something is stuck in the blades.

It can be turned in either direction. Sometimes if you turn it back and forth what ever is jammed in there will break. If not it probably something that was accidently dropped into the tank or sink drain when the RV was manufactured,

It's very simple to take the pump out. It just hooks on to the pipe the same way your serwer hose hooks on. Just unclamp the small hose and unplug the wires.
Hold it so inlet is down, tap it, turn screw back & forth and it should fall out.

The screw should always rotate freely if it is unplugged.
since I just purchased this motorhome, I am going to leave it to the rv dealer. thanks.

THE MATTRESS .... oh yes .... there is a top and bottom. And it is not the most comfortable mattress in the world anyway... not even close.

You can feel the difference .. one side is soft and the other side is harder.

We wents to Sam's club when we brought our 2013 - 2350 home and bought a 2-1/2" thick memory foam pad for the top of the mattress and cut it down to follow our matress. We have only taken her out once but it seemed ok.

On our last 2350 we purchased a new inner spring mattress from camping world which was wonderful but it wasn't angled off and it made the squeeze into the bathroom that much harder .... but it was soooo comfy !

I have lower back problems so I am not a happy camper if the bed isn't comfortable .

Good Luck,
Carol  Smile

I know the mattresses are right side up and I put an foam egg crate on them but will look for the memory foam. I don't belong to Sam's anymore but will do a search.  I will check camping world  too.thanks

You might try turning the screw on the end of the pump - a few turns.  Sometimes they get jammed or stuck and turning the screw manually will clear it.  There is a rubber cover on the end of the pump which has to be removed to get to the screw.
Tried turning the screw. It only turns about 1/4".  I didn't want to force it anymore....I will have it checked out later. I can still dump the reg.way. Thanks

not wanting to put holes in the bathroom door, I used the command hooks and used a tension rod for handing the towels. One on the top and one on the bottom.  They work well. I used the command hooks large and small and they work great. Heart Shower

As long as you have water in the heater, you can leave the switch on. Like I said before we leave it on the whole trip.
  Thank you, I thought so.
102  Main Forum / General Discussion / electric hot water switch on: February 20, 2013, 02:50:38 pm
Can you leave the electric hot water switch on all the time?.  In my other motorhome we only had propane and would only turn it on for 10 minutes as needed.  Since I have both ways I prefer the electric, and was not sure if it can let on all the time.  I don't know what the termostat is set at for the heating. It isn't written anywhere in the brochure for the heater....
  I have received so many answers to my questions on this forum that it is great to know that we can share.
Thank you.

Hi, if you are up for crawling around down under, check the wires coming off the grinder for corrosion & possible failure. Do the ele. valves work?  Maybe the fuse is futzed.  I think you can turn the impeller with a screwdriver if it is jammed.  Good luck.
Oh, we have stayed at Anvil Campground and also enjoyed our stay.
Thanks for advice.  I have Good sam warranty and service contracts and when I get home next week, I will take to my RV dealer.

WE experience 22 degree weather and found icy frost on the side walls between mattress and wall.  How can we prevent this and the windows are drafty by the beds.   Since this is first time using the mh I am finding alot out but that is what you get I guess in buying used.
  Also the mattresses have alot to be desired.  Need to replace them and need to find out where I can get new ones.
The coach is only two years old and wouldn't think they would be uncomfortable.  They give us back problems.
   ThankYou in advanced

First time out with motorhome and the pump did not work. So had to do the old method and was able to dump. The only problem with that my emergency hose I carried with me was not long enough, so off the walmart for a new system.  Had help from the campground owner...Will have to take mh to dealer and see what the problem was.   I was looking forward to using the system but at least the old way worked.  The test shows that the black water is still 1/3 full so there are some dirty sensors. Will need to clean it out when I get home.    Even Thetford couldnt help me.  Almost call a rv service but the campground owner and another rv camper helped out.  If you ever come to Williamsburg, Va a small family owned Anvil Campground are very accomodating.
 So what could have been the problem
