Dean,

The TV is a fixed mount so we ordered our PC without a TV and mounted it ourself. It is on a swivel mount as pictured in the following post:

It has been three years since we completed this project and we are still very pleased with how it works.  I would ask PC if they could place it in a different location or on a swivel mount for you.

Tom,

I think your fingers were on the wrong numbers.  Your post refers to a 2550 and 2551.  I think you meant 2551 and 2552.

Joseph,

Yes, the white switch is used to charge the truck (van) battery from the two house batteries.  You hold it in to give your van battery a charge, release it and then try to start your engine.  It took us about 5 minutes of holding it in to get enough charge into the battery for the engine to start.

Talk to Kermit, there is a solenoid and breaker under the hood.  In this case we found the breaker to have gone bad.  Didn't have the tools to fix it but the owner knows what needs to be done so all is good!

Trying to help a fellow PC owner out on a 2008 - does anyone know where the fuse is for charging the coach batteries from the van battery?  Checked everything out and the van battery is not charging the coach batteries.

Thanks

Ron and Linda

We would be glad to show you our rig anytime after 3/28.  We live n Highland, MI not that far from you.  We have a 2012 2551, very similar to a 2552.  We did have a 2008 2350.  We picked up both of our units at the factory and go to that area often.  It is a pleasant drive and a nice day in the Shipshewana area. 

We have been from the east coast to the west coast and have never had a problem on any of the roads with either unit.  Yes, we highly recommend the HWH leveling jacks.  We made three pages of changes to our second unit and it is perfect for us.  We spend about 4 to 5 months out of the year living in it.

Hi Debra,

  Congrats on your PC.  Great suggestions from everyone.  If we do encounter some unexpected cold nights as we did in FL the last two days, we make sure we have an ample supply of fresh water in the fresh water tank and disconnect and drain the fresh water hose.
   If we are in travel mode as we are when we leave MI and head to Fl, we do not dewinterize until we get into warmer weather, usually GA.  We carry a jug of water with us to use as a toilet flush while we are still winterized.
   Enjoy your travels.

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.

Dave,
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.

Janey,

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.
