Sparky,

I would call PC and find out the manufacturer of the shower pan.  I would then call the manufacturer to see if they have any suggestions but also ask them what material the shower pan is made from.
They may be able to offer advice so that you do not damage the pan or make it slippery when wet.  

If you know what it is made from you could then search the Internet for possible solutions.

We had the same problem last year.  Here is a link to a previous post that shows how I fixed my leak.

Looks like model 2910, with two slides on the drivers side.  Color is in the brown category with full body paint.

Barb,

There is a white switch on the drivers side dash, ours is to the left of the steering wheel, you need to hold that in for a few minutes to place a charge into the cab battery.   There needs to be a good charge in your house batteries and make sure you are in the use mode and not the store mode.

When you think you have enough charge (could be 5 minutes or so) release the switch and try to start your engine.

With 9 inches of rain in January the PC nearly washed itself.

George and Jill,

Congratulations on the future rig.  Maybe we'll see you in Michigan this summer.  Many great parks to enjoy your rig.   HelloBalloons

Best answered by 2551 & 2552 owners (and even for us with our 2350) I've always wondered if the main Fantastic fan would be better utilized in the rear bathroom and have it as your one and only roof-top power vent.
Ron,

   In our newer 2551 we actually have three fans installed - one in the bathroom, a max-air in the bedroom area, and then the fantastic fan in the kitchen area.  We utilize all three and would not do without any of them.  The max-air usually runs all night on a very low speed since it is so quiet.  We use the bathroom fan for moisture control while showering and then the fantastic fan when watching TV or cooking.  Many times we will have both the max-air and fantastic fan on at the same time to draw air through the rig.  We personally use all three fans and one fan in the bathroom area would not work for us.

The other night we went to bed at 11 and both woke about 2 AM to a constant, loud noise.  We realized our generator was on even though we were plugged into shore power.  Neither one of us had turned it on, in fact we had the TV on the sleep timer while watching the news prior to falling asleep.  

After doing some research as to why a generator would self start we learned that it is a somewhat common occurrence on Onan generators given the right conditions.  Most sources indicated to check for any moisture around the plug-in connections from the generator to the motorhome.  In our case, we removed the cover for the GenSet and found a little moisture behind the wall.  

A few days earlier we were parked under a tree at a campground and we heard what sounded like a branch had fallen on the PC.  We inspected but couldn't find anything.  Having moved to a different location and encountering a rain shower we did a very close inspection of the roof above where the generator is located.  We saw that we had a slight separation of the roof caulk of the PC to the roof of the Cab.  We bought some Dicor-self leveling caulk, repaired the area and have not had an issue since.  After the tree branch falling and then movement of the PC it must have caused the very slight separation of the caulk since the roof inspected good prior to our trip.

Hopefully this will help others if their generator self starts.  Other RV folks have encountered this and fixed it by cleaning and sealing their connections and eliminating any possible source of moisture to those connections.

I like the shelf under it to support the weight better as you drive down the road, makes sense to give is some additional support. Sure wouldn't want it to fall down on you when you are driving.

Butch,

We had PC make us that shelf when we ordered the rig.  They were very accommodating in helping us with the TV installation.  We also strap it down but do not feel it is necessary.  Just makes us feel better.

Russ and Linda,

I would not hesitate to ask PC.  They do whatever they can to please their customers.  We even had a couple of items drop shipped to them so that they could install them while building our newest 2551.

We found the same problem when watching TV in our 2008 2350.  So when we ordered out new 2012 2551 I installed the TV on a swivel.  So far it works great.

Here is a link to a previous post the shows the swivel I installed on our 2012 2551.

I always carried and used an old electric fry pan in the PC.  When it bit the dust this summer I decided to replace it.  My goal was to get something that was multi-functional.  I purchased the following:
http://www.amazon.com/Aroma-ASP-137B-Super-Indoor-Grill/dp/B00A6SQIZC/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1454721483&sr=8-2&keywords=aroma+3++in+1+griddle

I hesitated to post anything until I was able to use it on several occasions.  This winter in FL it has been my go to cookware.  It is amazing.  I do not need to carry a slow cooker, griddle, electric fry pan or steamer because it performs all these functions.  It is lightweight, stays cool to the touch and easy to clean.  It is the perfect size for us.

I tow a 2004 Chevy Cavalier and it has worked great for us.  I selected it for a couple of reasons.  First, the car can be towed 4 down with only a 65 MPH restriction.  Second, it only weighs about 2,500 pounds and is well within the limits for the PC, the tow bar and the hitch.  The best reason is that it was a used 4 year old vehicle with only 17,000 miles and all the tow equipment already installed.

Joe,

We use the bathroom when leaving MI on our way to FL.  We stay winterized the first two days.  What we do is carry a couple jugs of water with us to use when flushing the toilet. We have never used the tank heaters and have never had a problem.  There is some antifreeze in the tanks from the winterization so they have not split.
