I was planning to purchase a set of cables tonight and I thought that for a 2552 a 20' 4gauge would be more than sufficient.  I know Ron swears by his charger, and I'm sure at some point I'm going to agree.  Guess I can't wrap my head around it yet.  I think I should just listen to experience, and not wait until I'm in a bind.  LOL  At least then I can share the blame with someone.

<inquiring for a friend> Does anyone have a 3100 and travel with their pets?  How do you ensure they are secure during travel?  Does anyone use the space under the dinette? Anyone travel with 4 little doggies?

Joni and I use Snoozers dog beds for both travel and bedtime, but we have a 2552 and only two little pups. http://www.snoozerpetproducts.com/pet-car-seats-c-26_33.html

Although we live on the west coast now, I grew up in CT so I think that makes us eligible to attend if the timing is right.  Wink

We are making our way east in May with an Erie Canal charter in early June. From there we'll be exploring the Adirondack area, and into New England.  We are taking the southern route home and should still be on the east coast until late July.  Would love to be a part of a gathering.

If you happen to have 50amp service in your PC, here is the manual for the 240V transfer switch (PD52 series)...

Holly: Was interesting to see those pictures....apparently that little space between the drivers side bed and wall is where they installed my hard-wired SurgeGuard Unit.

John/Holly:  As George said, it's at the bottom of the wall under the generator switch and inverter display panel.....ours has one long screw on the right side of the carpeted section of wall panel and then it swings away to the left exposing the transfer switch.

I'm interested in your pictures of the drivers side bed storage space.  Ours has a carpeted box/cover which hides all of those wires and pipes.  Does yours have that cover and you removed it?  If so, how did you get it off?  With all that shag rug, it isn't apparent how it's attached.

Barry: Thanks for the link to the manual.

Was looking around for possible after-market replacements for the cupholder section of the center console and ran across this company which sells kits which you can buy to replace the dash, door and console finishes with a variety of different styles  and colors.

Bob:

We are in Northern Ca, and have a 2552.  Would love to show it off.  We actually have shown it to three couples so far, the latest was this very afternoon.  One of them just put down a deposit on a 3100 (wanted the additional dinette and a bit more space) and we will be traveling with them this spring/ summer.

Either PM me here, or have Aimee give you our info.  We are in the Napa area.

Haven't had any real rain since we got our PC, so can't help with this one.

We found ours behind the sofa, and so far that's where we store it.

Not sure what model refrigerator you have (ours is a Norcold N621L)  The 'F' fault code means the burner did not ignite or reignite.  Since it does ignite while parked, it sure sounds like the airflow while driving is influencing things.  And since it did work fine up until this point I would think the service tech would have checked gas pressure, combustion seal, electrode spark gap and cleanliness of the burner orifice (at the very least)

This is a link to a Norcold Service Manual that has a troubleshooting flowchart for various problems, including LP Gas Ignition Failure.

http://www.liveworkdream.com/wp-content/uploads/2007/07/norcoldmanual.pdf

Generally, some of the things to check:
- Make sure the propane gas pressure is 11 inches of water column.
- Make sure the combustion seal is complete and intact.
- Make sure the burner and the burner orifice are clean.
- Make sure the electrode spark gap is 1/8 - 3/16 inch.
- Make sure the AC voltage is 108 - 132 volts and the DC voltage is 10.5 - 15.4 volts.
- Make sure the thermocouple tip is clean and secure.
- The flame should be a darker blue color on the inside of the flame and a lighter blue color on the outside of the flame, and a constant shape without flickering.
It should not be - yellow - flickering or changing shape.
- Make sure the flame does not touch the inside of the flue tube.

My manual describes the processes for removing and cleaning the burner orifice, examining the gas lines for leaks, etc. but also says these things should only be done by a Norcold Service Center.

Thanks, John/Holly!  Sounds like a good product.  Our guy did mention that the toad-mounted led might be hard to see and suggested the coach light up front.  We had heard a lot about possible issues in certain vehicles when tying into the brake/turn signal circuits, regardless of the tow package or braking system, so we are going to have the brake/turn signal kit installed in the toad.

It will be interesting to see how it goes towing a pretty hefty vehicle (2103 Ford Edge Ltd AWD)
