Prayer and Luck.

We usually get in but not always the dates we want.  You need to be diligent and try everyday.  The other thing to do is look everyday for cancellations.  We have friends that do not make reservations and somehow always find a site.  Also, you cannot get in if calling the call center because the sites are gone so fast.

We are booked for 14 days beginning 1/12.  Hope to see you there.  If you're in the area stop by.

Thanks for a simple and accurate explanation of the A/C noise issue.  There is a work around for the Dometic thermostat AUTOFAN issue.  In AUTOFAN mode the fan will cycle on and off and when it is on  it will remain on low speed if the set temperature is within 4 of the room temperature.

Bob,

You are not the only one to forget about that switch.  I have told Barry a few times that the light in the ceiling in front of the microwave is not working and he just reminds me that this light is controlled by the switch at the entry door. 

Our 2008 did not have this so I always left a light on when we were going to return to the RV late at night.  What I do like about this switch is I do not have to leave a light on and now just open the door and flip that switch and I can now see to enter the RV without tripping on anything.  A nice feature added by PC.

Mike,

  Yes, the standard PC AC has the front and rear fins that can be adjusted left/right and up/down.  The fins are separated in half on both the front and rear so you can adjust the left/right  sides of the coach separately. Or you can close off a section if you so desire.

When we first got our PC the A/C fan seemed very fast at first and then after awhile it would slow down.   It was noisy when it would run fast and then quiet somewhat at the lower speed.  I could never figure out why sometimes it would run fast and then slow down.  After doing some research I found that this was normal operation when using a Dometic thermostat.  In the setup menu for the thermostat there are 3 settings for fan speed: HIGH FAN, LOW FAN and AUTO FAN.   By having the Fan Speed set to AUTO FAN and keeping the set temperature within 3 or 4  of the room temperature the fan runs on low most of the time and it is not as noisy.

According to the Dometic thermostat manual "When AUTO FAN is selected the fan speed will vary depending on the difference between the temperature set-point and the room temperature.   In AUTO FAN the compressor and fan cycle On and Off with the thermostat.
When the difference is: >5  The fan operates on HIGH
When the difference is: <4 The fan operates on LOW"

I now try to keep a temperature in the RV so that it is always less than 4.  It keeps the fan running on low speed and thus a quieter operation.

We bought this same combo package at Costco a few years ago.  I use both of them at home all the time.  In fact, the small unit moves a whole lot of air and I have to put it on the low speed to keep it from feeling too cold.  Great idea for the PC.

Janey,

The mirrors on both our 2008 and 2012 fold in.  They are made by Ramco.

Janey,

   Yep, that is exactly what happened to us but on the drivers side.  We were driving and I had to keep running to the back of the PC everytime we needed to change lanes to make sure the traffic was clear.  Barry had the unit hanging in the inside while he was driving.  You should be under warranty so call PC and see what they say.

Janey,

This happened to us when we had our 2008 2350.  The driver side-view mirror just snapped off when Barry was adjusting it.  The spring actually broke.  Since the PC was less then a year old at the time, the company that supplies the mirrors covered it under warranty. They actually had the whole assembly shipped to us after having it painted to match the rest of the rig.

We called PC when it happened and they took care of the rest.

I became a little confused after reading the posts about battery maintenance.  Not wanting to do something wrong I called Interstate today and spoke to a customer service representative about 6 Volt battery maintenance.  As per their instructions - all 6 Volt batteries require the water level to be maintained except for model GC2-DH-AGM.

Yikes is right--thetford does have a you tube video on taking off the old pedal (not a problem for you) and replacing with a new one.  It does show what a good pedal should look like on the back side, maybe you can determine what went bad on yours and come up with a temporary fix.  Apparently you can get foot pedal repair kits for these.  Here is the link to the you tube video https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=blDNqLrTdF0

I have talked to Norcold three different times about why there are two retrofit hinges in the retrofit kit and got different answers each time.  The documentation that came with the kit says there is a "retrofit hinge-left", "retrofit hinge-right".
