The handle can be raised when locked, but it should not turn.
Just got my PC back from Ford service and checked the handle. Thanks for the reply!

We use Travasaks that we had in a previous rv. They are now out of business, but their product was a good one. Someone else may make a similar product. It is basically a summer side/winter side sleeping bag with removable sheets. Works great on the twin beds in our 3100, but might be a little long on your driver side bed.

Just received and installed them on my PC. Simple job and my learning curve was long enough from my other vehicles. Now I will leave my windows cracked for this (getting) hot southern sun.

Thanks for the replies! I can't try my handle because my RV is at the Ford dealers for a fuel line leak. It's been there for over a week, but all parties (Ford, Lippert, and PC) are working on it. Just waiting for someone to solve the problem that the Ford guy has in getting the right parts that he thinks he needs.

The spare tire cover seems mounted correctly, but when I lock it the handle doesn't seem locked. Shouldn't the handle stay flat in the down position when locked? I can raise it up whether locked or not. Thanks for any help!

Thanks! I have them on order. I like them so I can keep the windows cracked on hot days here in the "Sunny South" and not worry about rain.

Anybody install these on their unit? Is the model # same as for "Econoline"? Thanks!

What is the purpose of the boxed electronics with a clear glass front under the chassis next to the driveshaft? I probably should know but don't have a clue. Also, anyone have any problems with the screen door not retracting? Thanks for any comments!

We concur with Barry. The only other thing that we do, is that we bring a small portable fan that we bought at Walgreens. That helps to circulate the air during the day and it has an added benefit at night--I am a light sleeper and the air cycling on and off disturbs my sleep but with the continuous hum of the fan going and the air off I am good for the night.
Does this mean that you turn the A/C off at night in Florida? I couldn't sleep without the A/C and I'm a few miles North of you. I've found that by switching the fan from auto to on that I get the continuous hum and air from the A/C fan and then when the compressor cycles on and off it's not as noticeable.

Replying to the OP, I would change out the 13.5K A/C to a 15K heatpump and I believe your problem will be solved

Congrats on your new purchase!   I think you will love your 3100, having moved down from a large coach like you I have found the 3100 perfect for getting into more hidden spots that you just could not get into with a large coach.  You will find a space for the most important "stuff" and the rest can stay at home.  Welcome to the PC family.

I'm slowly working down to just what I need to carry and not what I would unthinkingly throw in just in case the world might end while on an RV venture. Grin Several things I had gotten rid of in the past, I could use now; but I'm not going to save much of my current excess-time for another garage sale.

 I am impressed with the thought that PC has given to their small Motorhomes. There is a big advantage to building the same basic units year after year; and, unlike Lazy Daze,et al, continuing to tweak and improve them as the market wants and demands.

We picked up our 3100 from Kermit at the factory. We traded way down in carrying capacity from our Tour 42QD. Our garage is FULL from all the junk I was carrying, but I had a CCC of 8400# so why not?. Have to give some serious thought as to what to put back in the PC. We got most of the goodies by adding to the existing unit that shows in inventory. We had the windows changed to dual pane, swapped the A/C for a 15K HP; and added the satellite antenna. Thanks to all that answered my questions which helped make our decisions on what to add or change. Drove it about 900 miles back home in driving rain and strong winds with our toad. It did fine, but I'm going to add a Steer Safe to reduce some of the play in the wheel. I think we will enjoy the ability to get in some of the small sites that our Class A never could.

ron, yeah will probably put in a little extra than normal (formula? (from memory) 1/2oz per gallon I think) (will refer to my notes later)  David Sparks
2008 PC 2350
Houston, Texas
I believe the mix is 1/4 cup chlorine for every 15 gallons in the water tank and let it sit in the system for at least 4 hours. If you want to do it quicker then 1/2 cup for every 15 gallons and let sit for 1 hour. I drain the hotwater tank before starting and then fill it with the mix. Turn on each faucet until you smell chlorine (don't forget the outside shower) then refill the water tank back to full. I personally use a mix of 1/3 cup for every 15 gallons to treat the additional water added to the water tank after filling the hotwater tank and running the faucets; and then let it sit overnight. I usually can flush the system just once to remove the chlorine taste and smell.

Where do you get the information for the PC rally in Michigan this September? Thanks!

We were there in mid-September last year and I don't think it got up to 60 degrees. After touring Mackinac Island in our rain slickers and fighting 15-20 mph winds (the bridge was closed to RV travel), we decided to head South. We hooked up the next morning in sleet and spitting snow and drove 100 miles before it began to warm up. Yahoo! Next time I'll visit in August.  ThumbsUp

The 13,600 lb GVW was the coach completely loaded with all the gear and food  I would need for a week on the road plus myself and my wife and dog.  The holding tanks were empty.  I was  looking for a little more capacity but 900 lbs is not bad compared to say a Sprinter that is about max before you load anything.  I do not know exactly what the weight of the dual pain windows might be but the 3100 does have a fair number of windows and glass is not light so it would have to be at least 100 lbs that takes fuel to move down the orad.   Enjoy the 3100!

Your dog weighs 60 # more than mine so I'll throw that into the windows. DW and I weigh about 350 # so I don't know it that's a give or a take?  Grin
