    I was also thinking, and this happened to me on more than one occasion--I thought I was in the "use" position because the red light was on but in essence I had plugged it in and did not put the button in the use position so I was not charging my batteries.  The red light was only on because I was plugged in.


100% right, cycle the switch at the very least and then check your voltages.

Can't help with the external sensors but cleaning the interior is half a tank of water (fairly hot if possible) Dawn and Clorox and drive around corners left and right for an hour or so.

Mine did that and I just had to page through the options and eventually I got to the right one to get the pic back.

When I bought my 2700 I thoght the AC was a little weak so I fought for a pull down test on a hot day and it would not in 30 min or so, so part of the deal was a 15K unit with heat strip.  Never regretted that one. From a previous class A I kinda formed the opinion that anything over 30' needed two in Okieland and points West.

Years ago when brownouts at campgrounds were more common, I saw a guy using buck/boost transformer and he had weird wires hanging out with exposed ends.   I asked about it and that was the deterrent along with the bicycle cable lock.  The wires didn't do anything but also didn't seem entirely harmless - worked too.

I am thinking the the only seat that provides all of the baby seat prerequisites is the passenger seat.

My last two MH's in heat and humid Tulsa, I ran the AC from Apr 1 to Nov 15 set on 85 unless I was working inside the unit.

Much to the chagrin of the bill payer, BUT it helped keep both nice and both sold quickly. I don't regret the expense. 
Qualifier here is that both were stored in a pole barn with sides down to 4' that kept them out of direct sun.

12vdc is required at the frig for both the  controls and the solenoid valve on the the propane line.

I believe PC does a better job of engineering the clearance on departure angles than most but I still occasionally drug the threaded portion of the hitch ball below the nut, til I finally ground it off with a grinder, only once after that, out West going into a filling station in an area that did not have storm drains, just deeper gutters.

i have made a decision to replace my 6 tires on the 2010 2551S this summer, mainly because the prior owner let it it sit for a year and half in a park. No signs of cracks but the tires were manufactured in 2008. four questions.

Is there a trick to getting wheel covers off?

Has anyone purchased tires at one of the large RV shops such as Lazy Days or Campers World? It seems to me that for a number of reasons i am better off going to a group that deals with wheel covers, valve extensions and balancing large tires than going to a discounter like Costco.

Lastly did anyone move away from the tires that came with RV? Mine are MIchelins 255/75 R16 LTX 5 play (three polyester two steel)

What do you do about the spare that has never been on the ground and is also 5 years old?

I would surely run it by a Michelin dealer and get his opinion after doing on-line research at the Michelin site. Reason I say that is I just (within last month) threw away a lot of stuff on tires I had printed off, and IIRC as Ron D pointed out, without cracking 7 years is Michelins thought on when to start thinking about replacement.

I bought the portable version for a trailer and the whole thing in a case was less than 250.  Dealer may be adding a ton of labor when it's not that much of a job.

In a way I kind of hate to post this but will for the mechanical inclined.  I had my macerator in & out several times for one reason or another and did happen to find that by taking what need to be replaced to my local bearing supply there was never a part that I could not get locally and a very substantial savings over getting the parts from the maker (not PC).  That drip is probably from "solids" drying out and damaging the seal on next use. By design there is some small leakage just to lube the seal as the shaft turns.  I also changed all of the brass screws/nuts to stainless even having to make four of the long ones that bind the whole together.  I believe I have read or heard that the hardware in newer macerators has been redesigned to stainless steel.  It is very important to flush til clear with water and when winterizing to make sure that the antifreeze gets to the pump which will then act as an over winter lube on the seal surfaces.

Sequestration just got the opening of YNP - delayed two weeks if I heard it correctly. Gotta keep those 16 global warming offices in Interior open I guess.
