We also have a built in SurgeGuard and have never encountered this problem.

Here is the valve and connection setup, which is behind a lockable small door on the drivers side.  Very convenient...

My pump is a Pentair Shurflo Revolution (model 4008, 3gpm). It has always been a bit noisy, but that bothersome yet since we haven't used the pump all that much, but plan to soon.  It does not have flexible hose on one side, and on the other side, there is flex hose, but not connected directly to the pump.  I purchased all the 'stuff' needed to change out hoses, etc, to comply with the recommended Pentair/Shurflo instructions for installation, which are:

"Use flexible high-pressure hose on the pump inlet and outlet [such as SHURFLO Kit 94-591-01]. The pumps ports and strainer should not be connected to plastic or rigid pipe, or the pump's normal motion will transmit through rigid plumbing causing noise, and possibly loosening or cracking components."

The manual also says that to reduce noise, the pump should be mounted as close to the water tank as possible.

If I ever get around to doing the mod, I'll post results.

I have had a small amount of water come out the overflow while driving, but only once that I am aware of.

Tom Hanlon has posted in the past that when this occurs he uses a small section of pipe or hose over the overflow and blows into it, clearing the line.

Nice job, Ron!  I might just spring for one now and have it on hand in case of failure.  You mentioned you might use the stand that came with the Seaflow to mount the pump rather than the original strap.  I'd be interested in know how it turns out if you do.  That has been on my to-do list for a while (reducing the macerator noise).

Dave:

Same with my rig, which is a 2552.  My thought has been that it is because the tank is on the passengers side of the rig, very close to that sides overflow.  I would imagine that if I closed off that side overflow the water would eventually come out the drivers side.  Not sure where your water tank is.

Jim:

It would depend on the model of Edge you have and also if your brake/turn signal lights or supplemental braking systems are powered by the car or the coach battery when towing.

Our Edge is a Limited with push button ignition and we are using the cars existing lights for signals and brake.  We also have a separate line from the coach to the car battery for charging while underway. 

If we follow the recommended towing instructions from the owners manual we have no battery problems.  If we fail to ensure that the Accessory mode is on, we have had problems.  This is counter-intuitive, but when you turn on Accessory mode it will automatically time-out and shut down the displays.  Without Accessory mode on, the displays will stay on and slowly drain the battery.

Our Edge also has a number of things that depend on the battery always being attached (like Comfort settings, Sync settings, etc.)

Ours is a Liftco Room Glide-Out.  Can't really comment on reliability yet as our rig is only a year old, but so far so good.  Smile

Bruce knows best, as he has the product.  In general, the rear tires have a ton of room for sensors of any variety.  The issues with any sensor systems might be:

- Clearance of the front tire wheel covers.
- Ability to report temperature and pressure
- Ability to report/alarm instantaneous pressure loss in any tire
- Ability to monitor at least ten tires (6 on the PC and 4 on the toad)
- Range (in feet) of each sensor to the base station at the cab

We tow a 2013 Ford Edge behind a 2014 2552.  Let me know if you have any questions about this setup.....its a bit unusual.

 Coffee I like the idea of that kind of energy management......well, except the part where it could turn off my coffee pot!

Tom:

Yes, the 50 amp cable is much heavier than the 30 amp and yes I need to carry it from the rear cabinet to the side to hook it up.  I was a bit concerned at first by the difference in cable size, but it turned out to be a non-issue for me.  It might be for others, however.  I would suggest anyone considering it go to their local Camping World and throw one over their shoulder for a test drive.

Energy Management:  We also had Kermit hard wire a Technology Research Corp Surge Guard (Part #: 34560-004) with remote power LCD monitor at the same location as the tank/battery/lpg display.  Once we engage shore power at the pedestal, it takes about 2 minutes for the surge guard to check out the power source and ensure it is adequate, and then it passes power on to the rig.  We have had a couple of issues at RV parks and campgrounds where the surge guard disconnected our power due to a variety of issues (over or under voltage, reverse polarity, etc.). We think it was money well spent.
