Congratulations Betty and Dave!  The wait is the hardest part, but I'm sure it will be well worth it when you get the delivery.  Looking forward to your expertise here, especially from the full-timer angle.  I'm really impressed that you are switching things up to kick yourself out of a "rut" and back onto the open road.  What fun!

I've been dealing with a persistent small leak for a few months now and basically Kermit has approved me having local repair people look at it and try to deal with the situation (from Virginia to Florida).  He also approved work on any water damage that may exist, if the repair facility is confident that it can do it, or I can bring it back to Elkhart in the Spring for them to look at it.  Since the rig is still under a year old, I am being reimbursed for the work as under warranty.  I guess with new rigs (and of course aging ones) something is bound to come up now and then.  I find it comforting that Phoenix Cruiser will work with the customer to get satisfaction.

Welcome Carol & John--February is coming up so fast!  Good luck in picking up your new rig and welcome to the PC family.  Lots of really knowledgable people here on the forum, in addition to the PC crew, to help with any questions.  Safe travels!

Apologies if this doesn't apply to someone who isn't exactly a snowbird (since I am full timing), but just slightly flighty. 

1.  Travel from wherever I was just before it gets too cold to stay there
2.  Florida this year
3.  Dec, Jan, Feb
4.  This is the first year
5.  If I come back here next year I will, and they are very nice
6.  Heck no!  I hear you can barely walk outside here in the summer!

I've been dealing with a leak issue for a few months now and it has been at the connections for the shower faucets.  In the 2350/2351, there is a small panel on the back of the shower wall and next to the bed, making it somewhat accessible, although to do any work on it, the mattress and board underneath has to be removed.  Not sure what your model is like but I'm sure others more familiar can direct you if there is an easy way to get to those connections.  I'd say it sure is worth looking for.  I've had the connections back there tightened up three times now, and it seems that they just keep jiggling loose again after driving a bit.  Two repairmen have been involved so far, and both have commented that the setup seems awkward, with more connections than should be necessary.  Taking it in again in a couple of weeks, and they may rebuild the plumbing in that area to simplify it and hopefully fix the issue once and for all.  Good luck and I hope you find your answer soon.  Leaks are a pain!

Thanks Bruce & Sharon.  I will buckle down, use your suggestions, and see if I can fix this for 2015 (my New Year's resolution!)

Ah, well the only problem I have had with the monitor is the black reading becoming useless after the first week or two.  I don't understand why a better system can't be installed on these things.  Good luck getting your answer and if it comes from outside the forum, keep us posted!

OK, this is gonna sound really stupid, so forgive me, but maybe the monitor is simply broken?  Can you call the manufacturer and find out if kaputness can manifest itself with all empty readings?  Just a thought.

Welcome to the forum Crazy & wife!  Grin
Your depth of RV'ing experience, not to mention an obvious bent toward viewing things with a sense of humor, will be a welcome addition here, I'm sure.
Have a Merry Christmas, and keep us posted on your progress.

When you unwinterized the unit, did you (or someone) switch the water heater bypass valve back so that the water heater is no longer bypassed?  That's the only thing I can think of.  Meanwhile, baby wipes are real helpful, at least for a while!

I use my computer plugged in to the outlet under the dinette, which is not on the inverter, so as long as I am not dry camping, it is all right.  I don't really understand from the replies above whether the other outlets are safe or not for electronics when we are plugged in to shore power (or generator) but use an inverter outlet.  I thought I read somewhere that in such a case, the inverter will be bypassed.  Anyhew, maybe PC will reconsider having an option to put in a pure sine wave inverter for people who ask for one.  Grin

I asked PC about putting a pure sine wave inverter in when they built my unit for that reason, but they only wanted to use the modified sine wave that they've been using all along, indicating that there haven't ever been any complaints about it.  I didn't push the issue, and instead I got a nice adapter thingie so I could charge electronics from the dashboard when driving.  Then, once I moved into my rig and started using stuff and sort of understanding how things work, I realized that the inverter would only be charging my computer (or phone or whatever) if I were not plugged in to shore power, but using the house battery.  I usually am plugged in somewhere, so it is my understanding (and I may be waaaayyyyy wrong, in which case I welcome correction) that if I am plugged in to shore power or even using the generator, then even the inverter plugs won't be using the inverter, because it isn't needed then.  It is only needed when using just your battery power.  So when I did dry camp, I made sure my electronics were charged up ahead of time and if they needed charging while out there, I could use the adapter while driving or just take my chances with an occasional charge being done with the modified sine wave inverter.  Sorry, that was way too long, and probably confused, and maybe wrong.  But it's my two cents!
