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.

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.

Have to say I'm impressed with the extent PC will go to customize.  Lazy Daze won't even add a convection microwave and cook top in lieu of the oven/range. 
My delima is I need a longer MH that drives like a shorter one, also am concerned with the chassis mods to lengthen the wheelbase beyond the original Ford 176".
See that Coachhouse builds a 2551 size model on the 176" chassis so expect PC could do similarly.  Of course this means a longer rear hangover with its issues of dragging and swing out, but should turn much shorter.
I'd be especially interested in owners experiences trading up from shorter PCs to longer ones, any driving adjustments required?

Could add a windshield fan to blow on sleeping area from a 12v source such as reading lamp, etc.
26  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Why PC instead of similar priced Class A on: November 01, 2014, 04:01:54 pm
Price can not be the determining factor.  If you don't enjoy driving it you won't be happy if it were free.  Some folks pay more for a class B than for a PC and feel great about it, but wife has drawn the line on that.
I've never enjoyed driving the 40' DP or 37' and 31' class A's for many reasons but am thinking PC since I drove a smaller Penske moving truck on Chevy van chassis and hoping the PC would be as good.
I would be concerned about an extra long wheelbase on a van chassis given their poor wheel cut shortening turning radius especially if towing a car.
Finally; test drive, test drive, test drive.

Bicycling past Palm RV near Fort Myers saw a PC, maybe a 2910D in for service.  Somebody wintering here or passing thru?

Feb 2009 drove north thru Big Sur and recall numerous turnouts on coast side suitable for and signage indicating OK for boondocking.  Beautiful drive even pulling toad behind 37 footer.
29  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Water leak on our first big trip on: October 20, 2014, 11:46:04 am
I use an air compressor to winterize and think that may help you find the leak.  Need an air to male hose fitting to city water inlet and with interior plumbing fixtures off listen for any air/water sputtering but regulate pressure say 25-40 lbs. to not damage pipes.

Not your issue but we flooded one leaving sink stopper in vanity and forgetting water was left on.  I threw away that stopper.

My experience with 6v golf cart batteries is its difficult to prevent leakage of battery fluid from the vented caps and the subsequent corrosion of the tray, glides, and any attaching metal.  Also its critical to have easy access to view the fluid levels and maintain regularly and properly.

I will try AGM batteries next if affordable for their promise of cleanliness, ease of ownership, and charge retention.
