Bob, great idea getting short legs for the table to use as an ottoman.  I'm going to try that--thanks

If I'm in a campground that has good cable programming, I use only it since that's the easiest.  If there's no cable (or it's really bad), I use a combination of my Wingard roof antenna for local channels and directv for everything else.  This does require switching the cable from the satellite receiver to the internal booster, but that's not a problem (would be even easier if I installed a switch, but I'm too lazy).  When I connect my satellite receiver, the front tv is on satellite and the back tv is on the Wingard antenna.  Instead of spending money for the fancy roof mounted or carryout dishes, I found a discarded directv dish (they can also be found in thrift stores for around $5) and built my own moveable base that allows quick setup.  I described this (probably in too much detail) under the "Wingard Carryout Satellite Dish" topic.  I also added the Wingman to my antenna, and it significantly enhanced my antenna reception.  Now if I could only remember to lower that antenna...

I know what you mean about radio reception in West Texas and New Mexico.  We, too, got Sirius for areas like that, but now hardly ever use the regular radio anywhere.  Your setup sounds great--wish they had that when we added ours.  Two years ago, our best option was a removable Sirius unit mounted on a dock with the antenna mounted on the roof.  Our dock is mounted in the ash tray of the console and wired to the PC radio.  When we stop for the night, we take the Sirius unit out and put in a Sirius "boom box" to enjoy around the campfire.  Nothing like light jazz, a nice bottle of wine and sparkling stars to sooth away -- well, anything.  Just have to make sure the sound doesn't carry beyond our campsite.

Bob, congratulations on deciding on the PC.  You won't regret your decision, and the people at PC in Elkhart are great.  What other company will stop what they're doing when you drive in unexpected with a problem and take whatever time and effort it takes to fix it.  Other places require an appointment and make you leave the unit with them.  They also have an electric hook-up in their parking lot that you can use.  When you're parked, be prepared to have people stop and look over your rig and ask questions.  One thing you might want to have checked is your headlight aiming.  On my current 2350 and my previous 2700, I was constantly getting oncoming traffic flashing thinking I had bright lights on.  I have a feeling the added weight of the mh on the chasis might bring the lights up slightly.  We live in the mountains of AZ (yes Arizona has mountains), and I'm going to check my lights aiming as soon as I can find 20' of level space.  Actually, I keep puting it off because I'd rather be going somewhere new--and besides, we usually stop early to enjoy wherever we are and very little night driving.  Congratulations, again, and we wish you many miles of happy adventures.

I had the same entry door threshold screw problem when I had a 2007 2700.  So far, there is no problem with the threshold on my 2010 2350, but 4 screw heads have sheared off on the front left bottom of my pushout.  I now pay closer attention to screws, bolts and other fasteners during my post trip inspections.

While you have the tray off, I'd recommend you install the mud shield I believe is shown in this forum.  It's easy to do and really keeps the battery area clean.

Instead of purchasing an expensive satellite dish, I obtained an abandoned dish (free) and constructed a low profile base out of pvc pipe that makes storage and setup easy.  It's wasn't very difficult to run a coax cable to the front cabinet where I have the directv receiver.  I did this on my first 2007 2700 PC by replacing the existing external telephone connector with a coax cable connection box, and running the coax cable under the carpet along the wall from the back to the front-then fishing it up the wall by removing the generator control and pushing a clothes hanger down to pull the cable up(this took quite a few trys to get by the cross supports), drilled a hole in the left cabinet floor, ran the cable under the shelf (remove the buttons and unscrew the shelf) into the hole around the back of the tv to the right cabinet.  On my  current 2350, I drilled a hole in the right cabinet and ran the coax under the right shelf, down the wall - through the floor- along the underside of the chasis to the back- up through a hole drilled under the bed- outside through a hole drilled in the side- and connected with a coax cable box.  I like the outside connection on the right side because it's easier to hear the setup signal from the satellite receiver through the open door that tells me when I've found the satellite.  I have a 100' cable that allows me to move the dish around to avoid trees and other obstacles.  I bought a meter to help find the satellite, but gave it away after the first try.  I was told to simply point the dish toward Texas from wherever you are, and move it slowly up and down to the right or left until the satellite receiver signal beeps rapidly.  Usually takes me less than 5 minutes to find the satellite (helps to notice the direction other dishes are pointed first).  The low profile pvc stand doesn't need to be staked or weighted down, and the wind has never been a problem.  The dish slips out of the base, and I have replaced the nuts on all the dish parts with wing nuts making it easy to break down and store in my limited storage space.

While washing my 2010 2350 yesterday, I too noticed a small separation area on the roof to the right of the tv antenna starting from the round over.  It's currently about 2 ft long by 1 ft wide.  Was planning on monitoring it and calling the factory if it got larger.  Will be interested in seeing what you are told.

Has anyone replaced the carpet/linolium with laminate flooring?  I have a 2010 2350 PC.  What affect would the lower profile of laminate flooring v. carpet have on the slide out?

I also had the bottom hinge break after only 4 uses of the refrigerator.  They're sending me a new door and not requiring the old door be returned.  Sounds like a design flaw.  I would recommend anyone close to warranty running out to call and report broken hinge to get replacement door because it's going to happen sometime...
