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...
