Here is a link to the Tripp Lite 2000 W Inverter/Converter owners manual just in case your unit did not come with a manual.  This looks like the Inverter/Converter we had in our 2008 2350 but can not confirm it is the sme model number.

The Xantrex inverter used in the newer PC's monitors the 120AC power (generator or shore power).  Only when it is turned on and AC power falls below 90V will the inverter supply 120V (MSW).   I'm not sure how the older Tripp Lite works.

I had reason to call HWH once and found them to be helpful.  I find the manufacturer a good source of information for undocumented error conditions.  Here is the number for HWH support perhaps they will be able to answer all your questions.

563-724-3396 or 800-321-3494

The first thing I would think of is the inverter fan.  Usually these are muffin fans, you can get them at a reasonable price at an electronic store.  If you go to an RV shop they are generally more expensive.

If you hear like a high pitched whine, a constant squeak or shrill sound then I would suspect a bearing in the fan.

Here is a link to a wiring diagram for the PC.  This might help.

Code:
But don't know why the chalky stuff builds up on the strap

What we do to prevent this is disconnect everything, clean everythiing with baking soda and water, this removes all old corrosion build up.  We then reconnect everything and coat all metal with vaseline.  

There are many commercial products out there for cleaning and protective sprays but we find this has worked the best for us.  We make sure to only fill our battery chambers to not more than 1/4 inch above the plates.

Many times this chalky stuff is a result of the batteries being over charged.

Just an FYI - if anyone needs to order something from camping world there is a $25 off coupon on any order $75+  The coupon code you enter at checkout is radio75.

I do not know how long it is valid but we used it a few days ago and noticed it is still valid today.  We ordered the gp logistics single sided 5 foot ladder.  It was 75.49 a few days ago and today it is 74.59.
The ladder arrived today and we think it is going to work out very well.  It folds down to 61" x 3 1/2" x 3 7/8".  We mainly wanted it to look at the roof of the slideout and help with cleaning the front of the motorhome while on the road.  There are a few options as to where to carry it so will be working on that the next couple of weeks.

I had the front end aligned when we first got the PC.  After we had the tires replaced under the Michelin recall I didn't notice any change in handling and did not have a front end alignment done.

I have dealt with Discount Tire for 20 plus years and have never had a bad experience.  A great benefit is that Discount Tire offers free rotation on all installed tires.

I had our PC tires replaced under the recent recall and when I picked up the PC Discount Tire confirmed they would rotate the tires on the PC free.  The only thing they asked is that I call ahead and make an appointment because of the added time required from the dual wheels.

Here is a link to the Discount Tire website for Mechelin tires:

Code:
Same rig, same mileage, same options but adding a 6 foot slide-out, adds $1470 for a total of $52,499

Actually Ron, according to NADA, your rig with a slide would have originally retailed for $83,113 and if selling today would be $63,929. 

When selecting the original model you either choose a 2350 non-slide or 2350 slide.  For some reason NADA values a slide if added as an option at only $1,470 but NADA does not treat a slide as an option on any Phoenix Cruiser.  NADA identifies each Phoenix Cruiser as a separate model depending upon non-slide, slide, double slide. 

You make a very good point that people have to look at these guidelines very carefully when determining the value of a motorhome.

Ron's posting got me thinking, wondering what the difference a slide makes on the average sale price of a PC.

I went to NADA Guide website and looked at the average sale price for a 2007 2350 with and without a slide.  I included no mileage or options.  The result is very interesting, on average a 2007 2350 with slide would sell for $12,900 MORE than a 2007 2350 without a slide.  I did the same thing with a 2012 2551 and found the 2551 with a slide would sell for $12,200 MORE than a non slide 2551.

I know this is just numbers on a piece paper but it does provide food for thought.
