     I feel really bad for you.  That was always my one concern about these Apollo ovens.  I just don't know if they can stand the rigors of a recreational vehicle.  Many manufacturers use them but that still doesn't mean they are that good.  Are you going to be traveling near Elkhart - or could you make a side trip?  I would think if you could get your SANI CON and OVEN seen by the folks at PC you might have better luck.

The Wacky Cake

I make this all the time in the PC since you mix it in the pan you bake in.  Taste great and very easy.

1 1/2 C. sifted flour
1 C. sugar (I use a little less)
1 tsp. baking soda
3 T. cocoa
1 tsp. vinegar
1 tsp. vanilla
5 T. butter, melted
1 C. cold water

Sift, flour, sugar, baking soda, and cocoa into ungreased 8 inch square cake pan.  Level off, and with back of spoon, make three holes in dry mixture.  Into one hole pour vinegar, in second hole pour vanilla, in third hole pour melted butter.  Pour cold water over all, and stir thoroughly with a fork to mix dry ingredients.  Bake at 350 for about 30 minutes.  Spread with frosting whebn cool.

My Sharp convection oven was an exact 30 minutes, my Apollo oven is about 25 minutes.

We use our Verizon cell phone and Verizon's Mobile Broadband feature.  The cell phone is "tethered" (a Verizon term for being connected by a cable) to the computer and acts as a modem.  The Mobile Broadband feature can be turned on and off as required (no contract or activation fee) and is prorated on a daily bases if not activated for an entire month.  Depending upon your cell phone you may have to turn on Data Package and Mobile Broadband features or just the Mobile Broadband feature.

Our phone (we have an older model - not a smart phone) requires both the Data Package and Mobile Broadband feature and costs $50 per month for 2 GB.  Prorated it averages about $1.60 per day.  The 2GB meets our needs for email, update downloads and general surfing.  We do not do any video.  We generally use about 1GB a month.  They have different plans and many times will offer 4GB for the price of 2.  We have service everywhere we have telephone service.  Speeds are comparable to our cable service at home.  So far we have been very pleased with this arrangement.  As a matter of fact we will be turning it on this week as we are leaving for our trip to Washington DC.

We've never checked into the rates for Canada.  We like staying at the federal/state parks as well and as long as we have a cell signal we have internet access.  If you call verizon they will check your phone to see if it is capable for the Data Package and Mobile Broadband feature.  We had to buy the cable for our phone to use for the connection to the PC but it was only $5.00 through verizon.  We've been doing this for the last 5 years.

   Yes, I have the Apollo oven.  In the 2350 we had a Sharp convection oven and I loved it.  I wanted the same in this 2551 but with the new design for the vent I couldn't get it so I had to get the Apollo.  Knock on wood but my worked for the three months in FL and I used it constantly in all three modes.  Mostly convection for baking and microwaving for reheating.  I have never found anything as to what the error codes mean.  Your code PP:PP could have meant just a power surge or low voltage and it just needed to be restarted.  I have read about this on several forums but no one ever mentioned what the error code was.

Heck try to call them tonight if you want.  They may answer the phone.  Let us know what they say.  Thanks.

I would call Midwest Sales and Service, Inc. at 800-772-7262.  They handle all service calls for the half time oven.  Try them anytime, I think they answer calls even on Sunday.

    The area that we had to clean was the painted surface.  I always try to find cleaners that specify they are safe for clearcoat.

We have had the same experience several times.  One time as we were showing someone our 2008 2350 I off handedly mentioned it was for sale.  Next day I was on the phone to Stuart checking on the price of a 2012 2551.  Given the right circumstances a PC will sell itself.

This winter I did not keep up on the water that was seeping out of the hot water heater.  As a result when I got home there were lime and/or calcium stains just under the door of the hot water heater and down the side of the motor home.  They looked pretty bad and would not rub off with just a wet rag.  I did not want to use harsh cleaners like LIME AWAY and CLR.

In the past I have used Turtle Wax BUG & TAR and TREE SAP REMOVER on other paint stains and thought I would give it a try here.  I applied a coat with a Q-Tip and  let it sit a few minutes.  I rubbed with a  cloth and to my surprise most of the stain came off.  Followed up with a second coat and the stain was completely gone.   Even though there are other cleaners on the market I chose to use the Bug & Tar remover since it was safe to use on clearcoat.   As always make sure you test it in an inconspicuous spot. 

I had the Bug & Tar remover on hand since it is great to get all the grime off your toad.   We bought our toad used and it was in need of a good cleaning since the other owner had towed it behind a motorhome.   We find with the PC we get very little road grime on the toad.

    If you go to the search screen you can just type in the word mod and all kinds of modifications will show up.  Then you just have to pick and choose what one you would like. Many of the 2551 mods will work on a 2552.  You will have to weed out those post that show the word model but by just reading the portion of the post that is shown in the search results it is not too bad to do.   Have fun and ask any questions you want.  There is always someone on this forum to help.

ragoodsp - Congrats on the new 3100.  The new colors are beautiful.  Now all the fun begins in organizing it and traveling around.  Enjoy!!
