Know what you mean about the grand daughter.  For the 3 summers we've hosted here, we've flown our grand daughter  out for a couple weeks.  She loves running on the beach, finding shells, watching the whales/dolphins/sea lions/seals/otters.

It is very nice area.  Don't know your time frame, but this summer will be our last time hosting at this campground.   If you're interested and the time is right, contact Jared for next summer.

There's a summer campground host opening at San Simeon State Park in Cambria, CA.  Starts July 1, they would like you to stay 3 months but can be shorter, duties include morning and noon camp checks (ride thru campground in new electric cart and note occupied campsites on sheet for Rangers), answer questions about campground/surrounding area and sell firewood in the evening (sold by wheelbarrow load so would have to load wheelbarrows).  Cleaning camp sites and restrooms is contracted out, and they have paid staff to handle check in and entry station.  Rangers handle any problems, and one Ranger lives on site close to the host sites.  There are 2 hosts in the summer (we're one of them), full hookups are provided, and hosts can decide duty hours-we favor 3 days on and 4 days off, but that's flexible.  Cambria is on the central coast of California on Pacific Coast Highway between LA and Monterey, the campground is close to the ocean and summer temps are generally in the 70s.  If interested contact Ranger Jared at 805-776-2561 or Jared.Meichtry@parks.ca.gov.  Would be nice co-hosting with another Phoenix Cruise couple.

I have standard def directv with standard house dish that I adapted to take apart for storage and easy assembly.  All I do is set up the dish, turn the sat receiver on, push Menu on directv remote, down to Parental Favs & Setup, select, down to system setup, select, down to satellite, select, View Signal Strength, select, Signal Meters, select, starts beeping to show signal strength, go outside move dish until beeps are rapid (helps to have someone close to see general direction to point dish), exit on remote, wait for system to update, then  turn tv off and enjoy glass of wine.  Of course you have dish mounted, so pointing doesn't apply to you.  HD receivers are different and require different dish, so what I do may not be of help.

Just read about the Winegard Rayzar that replaces the batwing.  Looks like a mini satellite dish, has electronics to automatically find the most stations.  Installation looks simple and fits over where the batwing was installed.  Read about it in the May edition of MotorHome.

We have a 2012 2552, and I installed a tank similar to Ron's (in fact I got the idea from Ron when we had a 2350).  I made a mounting bracket to hold the tank above the pump and next to the bathroom wall under the bed since there's not much room under there.  The tank keeps the pump from cycling on/off constantly while using water and results in a quieter operation.

Odds are it's the fan which is normal with PC's.  There's an old string on this forum on fan noise and what some have done from turning the breaker off to installing a switch to turn it off at night

Had same problem on previous PC.  Turned out to be loose connection where camera cable connects to cable that runs from back to camera.

We were camp hosts at San Simeon State Park this summer with stage 3 water restrictions.  Most water in the campground was shut off and restrooms/showers were closed, but dump station was open.  Fees were reduced $10

Original lawsuit was over the 1200s, but the N6 and N8 were added according to the proposed settlement.

Just read that norcold has agreed to a settlement in the class action lawsuit concerning known defects in their  N6 and N8 refrigerators.  Anyone know more details?

Might want to check the screw in the shower drain.  After 2 years unscrewed mine to clean drain and found screw severally rusted.  Replaced with stainless

Might also check the breaker.  Could have tripped after starting to heat the water leaving it only warm.

You're right--all the campsites in Sequoia NP are no hookups.  We were there about 3 years ago in a 2350, but only stayed one night (in the south campground).  The north/south road also has a lot of sharp curves, and they advise longer rv's not to drive it.  If you go in the summer months, be prepared for a lot of traffic.  Don't know if you've been to or are going to Yosemite--it's VERY crowded even with the shuttle busses--parking lots are a mess, and busses are usually full during tourist season.

Bob, I have owned 3 PCs--2007 2700, 2010 2350 & 2012 2552, and all 3 have had small amounts of water in the rear compartment from time to time (usually after washing them).  All 3 had small drain holes in the compartment floor, so I would imagine the condition is not unusual.  A large amount of water would concern me, though.
