We just returned from a trip to Wisconsin and noticed that starting in the morning we had a "creaking" noise above the driver that sounded like it was in the front compartment next to the TV. After several miles it would quit. This went on for the whole return trip. We removed the books we store in the compartment, but it had no effect. At first I thought it was the satellite antenna that was moving until it locked itself, but it could have been expansion/contraction of the roof cap on the chassis. Since returning home it seems to have quit, but I'll keep checking to see if it returns especially in cooler weather.

Just noticed that I have a fairly prominent crease in the middle of the front cap. It goes about a foot above the middle marker light and below to the roll in the cap. It may have always been like this, but I can't see it in any of the inventory pictures. Is this normal and/or do I just need to wash it more often so I can remember it. Thanks for any comments!

;)Have had similar problems with a number of other RVs and always considered the propane gas detectors a nuisance until the new 2552 came home.  My neighbor heard a noise and alerted me. I checked and could not detect anything, but when I looked at the propane tank gauge it showed consumption since I had it filled and we had not used any propane appliances.  A squirt bottle revealed the regulator was leaking badly enough to trigger the interior sensor.  Have much greater respect for that monitor now.  PC (Kermit) replaced the regulator and line and did a leak check last month. OK now.

I had to replace my regulator last month because it was leaking through the casting on the front side. I have always used Marshall Brass in the past, but used the replacement that PC (carol) sent. I would also suspect a leak before replacing 4 sensors. The only bad sensor I've ever had was in my house and it was 10 years old and should have been replaced sooner.

Your point is well taken, but with the 3100 I have a 50 gallon grey tank and only a 23 gallon black. I assume that by equalizing I am getting close to the top, but that's only true if I am full on the grey tank. I am not saying that I shouldn't use the flusher; just that I'm probably to lazy to use it.  Grin

With the san-i-con, I crack the grey tank first just to insure it's working and no leaks (don't want the black tank leaking  Grin ) Then I open the black tank and turn on the macerator to get rid of the solids; next turn off the macerator; then open the grey tank and wait until both tanks equalize. I turn the macerator back on until both tanks are empty.

I used to use the sprayer after dumping the black tank; but, by letting the soapy water from the grey tank clean it, I seldom use it.

I had a Monaco coach (04) that came from the factory with a quick disconnect.  I called the factory to get clarification as to why my Webber Q would not work well and of course was told that I needed a  low pressure grille.  The techniction i spoke with at that time told me it was not legal for safety reason to run a  pre regulator line accross the coach and Monaco was going to stop doing even the low pressure line  becuse owners got upset tha tthey had to go out and buy new grilles to take advantage of the connection set up and there was always confusion.  Not sure if this really was the case since I totally lost interest in Monaco.   Thanks

I had a 2008 Monaco Knight and I made up about the same connection I've done on my PC for my low pressure grill. Everything worked just great.

Shipper, the grill you list does it look like it's low pressure. My understanding is that the grill cannot have a regulator since my hook up is AFTER the on board regulator. Going through two regulators is supposed to choke it down too much so you don't get enough heat.

Is your hook up before the rig' s regulator? If it is AFTER the regulator, have you had any problems with low gas/low heat?

My hook-up is after the regulator; and, yes, it is a low pressure grill. I have had the grill for 10 years and have updated it twice. I can easily max out the thermometer (which I think is 600 degrees) when cleaning. It sears steaks quickly, but will cook on low for slow cooking. I have never had a problem and the company is great for service. Mine was available with an optional naugahyde bag that it fit in and kept everything clean.

I have modified my propane connection on the last 4 RVs with the same quick connect. On the PC I installed a brass "T" and, with a few nipples and a 90 degree brass fitting, installed my quick connect facing down in front of the rear wheel well. I use a low pressure grill with a 14' flexible hose which snaps in to the quick connect and gives me ample room to grill under the awning on the passenger side. I like this better than a permanent pipe addition because you still have to use a flexible hose; albeit, a shorter one. I use a cut-off in front of the quick connect for additional safety. I really like my grill which is made in Canada, looks like a larger grill; but breaks down and stores in a compact bag. nod

I have never taken a ferry with my PC.  I think that you gave me a great idea for next year. I checked the Ferry web site for schedules and fees.I'd like to try it out.

When we took the Ferry to Prince Edward Island, my DW got a little nervous when our Truck camper and motorcycle trailer were surrounded by two 18 wheelers. She didn't know (nor did I) that the Ferry carried 18 wheelers and it was one of those rough water days.  nod

PS: To visit Prince Edward Island you only have to pay one way. We paid to come in on the Ferry and left by the "7" mile bridge.

Can you add pictures to your post from pictures on your computer? Do you have to store them on some other web location and then download them per their URL? Thanks!

Ive read that Norcold offers a door hinge retro kit to prevent the door hinges from breaking. Has anyone tried this preventative measure? How many miles (or months) does it take for the hinges to fail? Were taking a 4000 mile trip soon and Id hate to have the door fall off in the middle of Montana

I just called Norcold and inquired about the retro door hinge kit (their#634166) and mentioned that I had a "hairline" crack in my bottom hinge (not broken through) and if they would send me the kit I would be glad to install it on my own. I'm under warranty, but they told me to find and go to a dealer and they would replace the door. If I wanted their reinforcing hinge I could buy it at my expense, but they wouldn't sell it to me. They did say it would probably solve the problem and that I would be easy to install. No wonder Norcold has so many problems with nutjobs running their business. Seems like Thetford would have turned them around by now!

Looks like you can buy the hinge kit on line, this is one place.

I had found it at Amazon for about $30 including shipping, but too stubborn to buy right now. Probably wait until close to end of warranty.  Grin
