We actually saw a similar case in Florida back in March...looked like it had been applied over dusty sand!

We have a 2007 2551, And the only part of the paint finish that looks bad is the "Diamond Shield" !

I also agree with Fort Myers area, The Red Coconut is on the beach. 50cent trolly to tons of places to eat & drink cheap!  buy a some cheap bikes when you arrive keep them for your trip, then donate them to the Salvation Army when ya leave!

Also Google maps is good for searching camp grounds, And anything else you may need

Can anyone tell me how to disconnect the pump wiring. I've taken off all the hoses and clamps but cannot locate a quick disconnect to the wiring.

The PC is 4 years old  and I want to do some maintenance to the system, replacing rusty worm clamps, and possibly the hanger.

Bill Golden    Help

I cut the wires, and use something like this,!on-Terminals/p_189081

Thankx, holding the mode button did not work, I unplugged the circuit-board, Plugged it back in the code came on, I turned it off & back on the code came on within a few seconds
I turned it off and back on but held the button in for about 30 seconds the fridge stayed on and got cold for a few hours on AC, But coded again, I restarted it again on gas this time,
Its been working for about 12 hours so far,

Thankx again

Its the NorCold n621, Getting the "n" code, on both gas & Elec.... I run the fridge on and off on a regular basis, on both gas & elec, showed no problems before!!!

 I blew compressed air into the bottom of the "chimney" where the gas line goes in, It blew out a little carbon but not much. I have no Idea what to look for...

Anyone got any Ideas where to look?

ok gotcha... you raised your 450 seat 3" cuz it was too low for ya to be confortable!  I would like to lower mine about that much.....  Measuring other vehicles is a good idea...

No No! I have the same problems as others! The seat is too high!,, Some day I will lower the seat ! But until then, It was easier to raise the floor! and modify the pedals....

Your a pretty tall feller and so am wondering why your built up the floor and pedals.  I am only 5'6" and I built mine up so I could have the seat back farther so steering wheel wasn't in my face. Also I don't have power seats and I feel the seat is a bit high.  So I built up the floor with a couple of pieces of carpet under the mat.  You must have felt the floor was a bit low also to build it up 3"??

3" made the distance from the floor to the top of the seat about the same as my work van.

I do long runs when I use my PC 10-15 hours, so its good to be comfortable!

Measure your other vehicles seat to floor to pedals, and see what ya get? I only did my van, I am gonna check street cars and see what I can learn.

I am 5.11 with a 32"inseam size 11 mens shoe

I found the Electric seat in my 2007 2551 Ford 450 very uncomfortable,

At its lowest adjustment its 2 inches higher then my Ford 350 van with a manual cloth seat.

What I did was build a 3" high platform for the floor.

A one inch block on the break

and a 2.5 inch block on the gas

works for me.

Try running the Generator and see if the A/C works properly.

You have to be careful running the A/C while "plugged in" at home, you cant just plug into a home outlet with an extension cord and run the A/C.

You can fry the "motor starter" on the A/C,

Thats what I did  pulling hair out !

We have a 2551, wit da slide, Yes it was the "outside outlet" near the door.    The fail-safe on the Tripp.Lite inverter worked well !

14  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Electrical problem What I found! on: June 14, 2012, 04:51:47 pm
The problem was a "short" in the outside receptacle the wires were fried not sure why, everything is back to normal!

Your profile along the side does not indicate which year and model you have so we are very limited to how we can respond.  It would be great if you could edit your profile to show that information as you see I have to the left of my response.

We have a Tripp-Lite inverter on our 2007 2350 so I will give it a shot.

I do not believe there is any elecrical device above the heat shield you describe.  On our year & model, I can get a good look above the heat shield through the right side rear wheel well.  I examined the main battery cables that pass through there to get to the inverter to the left of the fridge.

Open the access door to the inverter (originally screwed shut at the factory) and hit the rest button on it when the unit is misbehaving.  That might do the trick for you.  If not, turn the inverter power switch to each of the 3 settings and back.

If nothing works, there is one more thing to try.  Get a small mirror and flashlight and look up from below at the control panel.  Reach up there and unplug the connector that resembles a Walkman headphone jack and observe what happens.  Do not confuse that connector with the one that resembles a telephone jack.  Unplugging the proper connector disables the auto-on-invert feature which places the control panel into a user-control mode.  In this mode you may be happier to control when the inverter is generating 110v, and just as important, when it is not to save your battery reserve power.  You could kill power to the inverter using the switch by the main entry door, but then you have also killed 12v power required to run your fridge off propane.

Thanks Ron,

 Ours is also a 2007,  I am pretty good with this stuff, I disabled the "auto invert" cause We use our PC alot, Without  A land line!
We have it for over 3 years......

I sent an E-mail to PC with a little more Information about the problem, I know we can resolve this,

..I will keep you filled in! This is gonna be an interesting problem.
