When we camp without a full hook-up I always hate wasting water to rinse the few dishes that I use.  While shopping the other day I happened upon the Foaming Dish Soap on sale.  It stated right on the bottle that you only need to use a little water to rinse it off.  So I bought it and gave it a try this weekend while camping.  YES - they are right.  I found it to be very effective in cleaning the dishes, did not suds up like normal dish soap and did not need alot of water to rinse it off.  Also had very few suds left in the sink to go into the grey tank.

I looked online and it states you can actually make your own foaming dish soap from regular dish soap.  So when I use this bottle up I am going to give it a try.

Ready to clean the front of our PC over the cab area.  Safety first, rubber gloves and eye protection.

The rope is used in conjunction with a pulley system.  Works great especially for a light weight kid. lol rolling on the floor

Each tire on an axle must have the same pressure.

I agree, the TV should be located to one side or the other or placed on a swivel.  I know that PC has located the TV to one side for others.  We chose to install our own TV and placed it on a swivel as shown below.

   Using one of these methods seem to work:
       1.  If in a campground where others are all ready setup I just look to see how their antennas are positioned and I do the same
       2.  If no one is around I point the antenna to the largest metro area that is closest
       3.  The webiste that yankeeflyer just posted is a great resource

Here are pictures of our swivel front seats in our 2012 2551 and the extra cabinet Phoenix added to our 2008 2350.

Scanning once can take around 15 minutes.

Scanning is the function of the TV - Maybe the model TV that you have in the 2007 is inherently slow in scanning.

I am a new member who is about to order my first RV - a PC 2350.

Welcome to the forum!!

Our first motorhome was a 2008 2350 - we had a travel trailer for 5 years prior.  We chose the 2350 (with slide) for its length and what we thought we would be comfortable with traveling across the country.  We owned it for three years and now have a 2012 2551.

Being that we lived it in for three to four months at a time we found the 2350 too small for our needs.  The corner bed was not ideal for us and storage for cold and warm season clothing was lacking.  The bathroom seemed to shrink day by day.

We love our 2551 (with slide).  We are very comfortable for months at a time and storage for everything is ideal for us.

We also disagree with Ron about the antenna.  We have no noise rattling on the roof when we drive and we use the antenna all the time.  Many times we do not even have to extend it and get an excellent TV signal.  The only time we do not get a signal is if we are in a very rural/remote area.  Also, many people forget to scan their TV for signals when they move to a different area.  That is the first thing I do when we get somewhere.  Turn the TV on, position and turn on the antenna, scan for channels and by the time I have everything else set up we can watch TV.

We have the insulated windows as well.

We also did not require any extra seating besides the couch so we opted to have extra cabinets built into the 2350 instead of the barrel chair that PC used to install.  In our 2551 we had both the passenger chair and drivers seat swivel.  Remember, PC will try to accomodate your requests so think of everything you want prior to ordering.  Don't limit yourself to the options in the model you are looking at.

Hopefully you have had a chance to walk through a few of the models in FL before you order.  Or travel to Elkhart, order your PC and have them deliver to you.

It's great to see it come together.  Hope your wait is nearly over.

   We had the manual one with our 2008 model.  Brackets did come with the coach but PC did not install them but just gave them to us to either install ourselves or leave off.  We never did install them.    I would call PC and see if they still have any brackets left from the older style (manual) awning.  We did use the awning on the 2008 but very sparingly.  Even though it is suppose to be a very good awning we never got used to it since we were used to the one on our travel trailer.

The twin blankets are wide at 60 inches but since the mattresses are so easy to handle I put them on so that the excess is even on both sides for the overhang and then I just fold them under the mattress.  Very easy and they work great as long as they are nice soft blankets.  I use the ever soft fleece blanket from J C Penney in a twin size and we love them.

We carry both a blanket and a comforter for the 2551.  I bought twin blankets for each bed and a full size comforter that I cut in half and then stitched up the side.  The blankets I got at J C Penney and are very soft and light weight and the comforter I paid $26 at Target.  It is very light weight as well and works great.   Most of the time we do not need the comforter but it makes the beds look very nice during the day.  There have been times on a cold night or morning that the comforter does come in handy.
