In the past I used a magnet mounted antenna but decided to go to a permanently mounted antenna because I too could not think of a good anchor for the cable without drilling a hole or cutting into the side wall or roof.   The only way I could find was to use a fender mount and run the cable through the engine compartment into cab.

I now use my magnet mount on the car and the permanent mount on the PC.  Both can be easily removed when not needed.

That looks really nice.  We replaced ours in our 2551 with one that looks very similar.  Enjoy your new sofa.

We have a 2012 with xantrex pro inverter XM1800.  The manual says the E - 02 is for under-voltage shutdown.  It then says disconnect from the load and recharge the batteries.  As was suggested I would check to make sure the switch at the door is in the charging mode.   If the light is on it does not indicate that it is in the charge mode.  I usually press the switch to the "use" mode and this turns on the charging portion of the circuit.  Also check all the 12 volt fuses in the circuit panel.

We have a 2012 with the light fixtures that have a dim and bright setting.  When we were at the factory we asked them to show us how to remove the light covers.  Doug showed us that we just have to carefully press in the sides near the top and they are then able to be removed.

I think the red light is a failure condition and indicates a failure to ignite.

Here is a link to a site that has the installation/operation manual for the Atwood water heater.  This might give you an insight to your problem.

You are getting good advice.  There are three valves an inlet valve, an outlet valve and the bypass valve.  Make sure the inlet and outlet valves are open and the bypass valve is closed.  This way cold water goes into the tank, gets heated and then comes out of the tank.  The bypass valve is in the center and that needs to be closed and the other two open.

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.

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.
