As a precaution retract the PC steps so they cannot put a drain on the battery.

If the battery can be easily removed I would take it to a good auto parts store and have them test it.  Otherwise, fully charge the battery and wait at least 12 hours and then check the output voltage.  If the voltage is around 10V you probably have a bad cell.  If not you might have a drain on the battery.

Will be heading west from Bangor, ME in a couple of weeks.  Can anyone comment on the driving conditions on RT2 between I-95 and I-89.

Jerry, I ended the garbage mail from Good Sam by telling them to take me off their mailing list.  The only thing I get now is the magazine.  Sure did stop alot of junk mail.

Thanks for the two replies - I gave you each a helpful.  I sure wish mapquest or other routing programs would allow for the avoidance of these parkways.

Sue


UPDATE 8:15 PM - I just logged into the Good Sam Club website (since I do have a membership) and I tried their routing program and it is actually "VERY NICE".  It did allow me to put in avoidances per state like parkways, tunnels, major bridges etc...   Very helpful indeed if you have a good sam membership.  Even will send the routing to your email so that it can be printed out.

In planning our trip to Maine I was reading that New York does not allow RVs on certain Parkways.  I've looked at the New York State DOT site and have called them but am wondering if others have found this to be a real issue.  What do you do to avoid these roads?  Is New York the only state that we have to worry about?  Any advice would be appreciated.

Dick,

     We are heading that way from Michigan the first week of September.  We plan to be gone about a month.  Our first stop is West Point, NY, then onto Cape Cod, Bar Harbor, and then we'll circle back through Cabot, VT and go to Cooperstown, NY and Corning NY.  I have not made any reservations but just called a few places and they said they have openings.  As we get closer I'll start calling to confirm places as the weekend "might" get crowded.  If we have internet I'll post and let you know about the places we stay.

Here is another option, we replaced both drawers with a pullout pantry from Home Depot in our 2008 2350 and then moved it to our 2012 2551.  It provides more storage with easier access.

The converter ( battery charger ) does not directly charge the van battery.  It is not all that hard to charge the van battery if it is fully discharged but I would not recommend that it be done on a regular basis.  This should be viewed more as an emergency procedure.

Here are two links on how you can get the van battery charged if you run it down.

Congratulations on placing your order.  We think you made a super choice.  Hopefully the wait time will go by fast and then you can have the fun of packing it up and hitting the road.

ENJOY

There is a company the provides aftermarket equipment that would allow a vehicle to be towed 4 down.  I have used the information provided by Remco Towing several times.  Also, their customer service is very knowledgeable, assessable and helpful.  Here is a link to their website that provides information on what needs to be done to make a vehicle towable 4 down.  This should be much cheaper than a new car.

One thing that surprised them was the height of the toilet.  It is plainly too tall for both of them.  They have a question to ask the factory about a lower pedistal....maybe no pedistal.

I do not know about the toilets in the newer models of the 2350 but from the pictures it looks like it is on a pedistal.  But in the 2551, the toilet is much lower since it is a different model toilet and it does not sit on a pedistal.  Having had both the 2350 and now 2551 it was a real surprise when I first used the 2551 after having been used to the 2350.

They liked our older sliding windows for improved air circulation while parked.  

At first we were not sure if the newer style windows would give us the air circulation but having had both kinds of windows now we find the newer style to work very nice.  Surprisingly you get very good circulation through them.  And the best part is you do not have to worry about them being open if it is raining.  We also like the rimless look on the outside.

It may be the old uncomfortable jack-knife style sofa.

When someone needed to sleep in our 2350 on the sofa I always placed a piece of memory foam underneath the sheets and there were never any complaints.  I would then roll the memory foam up and store it behind the sofa.

It is nice that they had a chance to see your unit so they can now compare the differences between 2007 and 2013.  Hopefully they will be able to pick and chose and get exactly what they want.
