About 5 years ago PC made this switch a momentary toggle switch so it needs to be held. However I replaced my momentary switch with an identical on-off switch that I bought at an auto parts store. It pops into same opening and wires pull off old switch and push on to new switch. 5 minute no tools replacement.

When my RV is stored, since my solar arrays charge my house batteries, I leave the switch on so it also keeps the engine battery charged.
Would this be recommended if starting battery and house batteries are of different types?  Flooded and AGM for example?

Also any thoughts on my earlier post regarding inadvertent drains using inverter?  Thanks.

Frequent comment is 2350, 51, and 2400 on E350 sag at rear.  Mine does, so try to park down hill making coach level without deploying jacks.  Suspect it's more due to weight distribution than total but never weighed it.  Sounds like you should consider having it built on E450 and with jacks, can be very convenient at times.
Yes a third captain's chair comes with a lap belt.

One night Chris was playing the DVD on inverter power and drained the house batteries  so low generator wouldn't start till ran the engine a while but hasn't recurred though she hasn't changed her TV habits.  I'm wondering if source of drain was due to leaving on something like the electric hot water switch, tank heater, or refrigerator on auto/AC.  Does the inverter power any of these?

Don't see her pics either.

Had 3 motorhomes and all had/have furnace problems.  The PC would have to be reset after each heating cycle then wouldn't  light at all.  Replaced circuit board and worked briefly but went back to needing to be reset after a cycle.  Replaced blower motor for too high current draw and worked OK for a while but now not reliable needing reset often.  Atwood blaming PC suggesting heat register too close to cold air return overheating furnace or flex ducting too restrictive increasing air pressure overworking motor.  Good luck.

Kate, should join FB closed group "Phoenix Cruiser" for more info and discussion.  We're traveling all summer in our stretched and modified 2400.  We're very comfortable but agree a shorter rv may be better for me who does all the driving.  We opted for twin beds no slide and love it.  We'll be driving thru northern Lake Champlain area early August on way to Thousand Islands area.

PC should thicken the roof and duct the AC, would be much nicer MH.  We can't hear the TV at 100 volume when AC running.

Ron, had similar thoughts.  Chris wants permanent beds.  I offered to have mattresses upholstered but will have to try her way.  Can still use during day with some pillows.  Kyle is checking feasibility of a pedestal table between passenger seat and 3rd chair, not same height so more pillows.

Length spec is 24' 11" to 25' 1" on 170" wb E350.  Without a slide should be adequate CCC for us.  Deleted subwoofer to make a doggie den for Freckles.  Chris got a fan above bed and small cabinet above bath window.  Wardrobe has 4 drawers and looks wider but counter and cabinets adjacent door had to be narrower to make room for captain's chair.

Recently joined Phoenix Cruiser (closed group) for more discussion but not much going on, less than 40 members contrast to a Roadtrek page with over 4k.  I'm sure with FB's easy to use app on smart phones folks would be inclined to post more pics and the fun stuff they're doing with their PC's so everyone please join and try it out.

Paul, We used to tow but will go sans toad when we pick up our 2400 next month.  We may possibly stay at a NP campground for up to a week and rely on the PC for sightseeing.  Please elaborate which tasks leaving camp you found most irritating.

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?
