6 volt batteries have thicker plates than most/all 12 volts so not understanding the claim for equivalency.  You should get better deep cycle performance irrespective of AGM or flooded cell.

Joseph, hated the hookup and driving.  Should've had quick connect of lightweight parts, no crossbar, and integral cables and wiring.  But still the wife had stophereitus, always wanting to turn around no matter the road and park no matter the lack of space. 

BTW, which 1800# vehicle is your toad?

I hated towing and downsizing to a 2400 don't plan on it.  Hoping we can find parking for the PC wherever we go.  Has anyone else given up towing and feel they made the right decision?

If you must tow, wouldn't consider the older Roadmaster base plate with its heavy brackets and crossbar.

Judi,

About when, where, and for how long does the Florida group get together in the winter?  Probably get some snow birds too.  Thanks.  I'm already looking forward to winter, as you know we really only have 2 seasons here.

If getting a slide make sure there's no potential interferences in or out like cabinet doors or drawers that can hang up or be hit during operating.  If it's possible to happen then eventually will.  Also slide seals not all perfect and may have water leak if raining hard enough with unfavorable wind and/or rv level.  Understand PC has a good backup plan for retracting a slide in event of electrical problem.

Untill PC offers a coach with lots of solar power and 8-10 batteries to run the A/C then must have a generator to boondock.  We've even used the generator to run the roof A/C while driving thru the desert.

All but the longest models PC builds for inventory usually don't have jacks and if you plan to tow a car and park the rv for weeks at a time then may do without.  We just ordered a 2400 planning to move it a lot so got the jacks hoping to save the back.

I know a higher seat is easier on our older backs but hearing a lot lately that its not the optimal position for doing our business, rather a more squatting form with knees higher is better for you.   pulling hair out

Yesterday Chris and I finally agreed and put down payment on custom 2400 so should be rving again by 4th of July.  Had visited factory over a year ago and though workers had left got great tour by Kermit.  Looking forward to many years of good times ahead.

Tire pressure should be checked cold, i.e. in the morning before driving.  Letting out air during a trip due to heat of road friction could over deflate the tire.  Better to kick the tires or slap with a wood dowel to verify inflation and feel the tires for excessive heat upon rest stops.

Thank you bhgareau.  Now I can do a little planning and maybe seem halfway intelligent talking to factory.
13  Main Forum / General Discussion / To owners of 2400 on: March 15, 2015, 08:47:27 am
We're considering the 2400 but with different layout upfront.  Would help to know a couple dimensions.  Would someone measure length from the refrigerator cabinet forward along the floor to the cab entrance, i.e. the point where the floor drops, also on opposite side from forward side of wardrobe to cab entrance.  Thank you.

Ron, why not also have the rooftop vent for the refrigerator moved to the sidewall same as slide-out models.  I agee with cleaning up the roof.  Maybe a new fixed antenna would work near cities while creating roof space.

In MI poor highway construction and overweight trucks have made the right lane unusable for long stretches.  Even PCs aren't built to take such a pounding.
