CAUTION:  Never back up out of a large pothole or over a curb, tire will pinch the mudflap and tear it loose from bracket.

Could FW tank be source?  Might switch back to pump with tank at low level, if no leak then fill tank and recheck.

Never had an RV that the slide didn't leak some in a big downpour so for that and other reasons didn't get a slide this time and still had waterleaks.  The one from rain was due to lack of sealant at top of wing area and had caused minor damage to woodwork till was discovered during heavy rain and puddled on floor.  The other was total lack of glue to seal the water tank alternative fill hose to tank so would leak every time we filled tank but puddle was also near the shower so was missed for a while.
The answer is more and better quality control testing as people will make mistakes.   Auto companies used to extensively water test till installed robots to perform tasks requiring perfection as glass and body panel sealing.
19  Main Forum / General Discussion / Inverter location? on: April 16, 2017, 04:35:35 pm
Would like to add a second battery bank primarily to power the inverter reserving the coach batteries for the furnace and other essential 12v loads.  A marine battery switch could feed power to the inverter from either battery bank but probably not appropriate to select Both given different type, age, proximity etc.  But I've yet to locate the inverter,  anyone know?  Thanks.

"So, you think a single 15,000 BTU unit will cool a 2552 even when the temp tops 100?  I would like to avoid the extra hole in the room and take away from room I might use for Solar that will come with adding a second unit."

Been there in a 30 ft class A, granted more volume but was also better insulated, thicker walls and much thicker roof.  Bottom line, one AC won't keep wife happy in those temps except maybe a no slide 2100.

We've needed to extend the front levelers to the max several times,  would guess the tires may be at least 2 maybe 3 inches off the pavement.   Wife is often frustrated with the time it takes to park no matter how many times I explain we must point downhill on a significant slope.  Feel ok if at least one rear tire is firmly planted and chocked.

Excellent and informative PBS program about current and future battery technologies,  a must see for anyone considering lithium batteries.  May decide to wait a few years for safest designs coming.

Our two 2 year old batteries need replacing due to being overly discharged so am considering installing a 4 battery pack inside under a bed near the inverter.   Because they'll be within our living space they can't be regular flooded cell batteries that must be vented to outside so  must buy AGM or Gel or Li but wouldn't feel safe yet sleeping ontop potentially explosive Li ion.

Personal expectations are important that some folks understand they're built on truck suspensions and just tolerate their ride and handling as Americans used to put up with domestic small cars.  Thankfully competition required manufacturers to improve the cars but untill somebody actually builds motorhomes that ride like SUVs we're stuck with aftermarket mitigations.

Just anecdotal, but when our coach batteries were down with engine running the generator wouldn't turn over.  I bought a pocket sized car starter to jump the coach batteries and has plenty of power to start the generator.

We have the same mattresses as used on the 2552, 68" and 74" long and have great success with standard twin sheets using 3 or 4 elastic mattress clips underneath to take up excess sheeting keeping everything smooth and taught on top.

PC tends to add options at the end of the build process as described to me when I mentioned our bath window valence and shades fell down.  Seems they installed the valence then later removed it to build a cabinet above we special ordered then reinstalled, just not as well.  Yours may have had an absorption fridge as originally built.  Or maybe they wanted to provide the option of switching to one later.

Please share how you supply sufficient electricity for the residential type fridge. Thanks.

Brilliant son decided to add headphone amp and cables to jack on back of TV, but required removing TV for access.  Now TV rattles due to screws not going back exactly and the wood supports splitting and loosening attachment.  Love him but never should have let him touch our PC.  Anyone else remove and reinstall a TV and need to repair the wood, what did you do?
29  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Better ride adding air bags on: December 03, 2016, 09:32:00 am
I have the full Kelderman airbag setup for the rear of my PC.  It does help with the ride massively, but also allows me to level the RV and lower/raise it for towing.  I also have bags in my front springs.

Were the rear leaf springs removed or is it the 2-stage setup connecting their rear shackles to the air bag mechanism as shown in the pic in the Kelderman link?  Thanks.

Thanks Ron I suspected helper air bags could hurt ride quality.

The Kelderman air bag unhooks a leaf spring shackle from the frame to combine them and first compress the air bag reserving the spring for larger bumps.  No idea if it works as advertised.
