You asked what size accumulator tank I used and where I put it.  I can't remember the size, but it was the largest of the 2 that Home Depot sells.  I took out the bass speaker under the bed, built a cradle and strapped the tank in.  The speaker was too loud when one person was listening to surround sound and the other was in bed, so it wasn't missed.  Someone else asked about access to the pump--the bed board on my PC was cut in half--the head board piece was screwed down, the foot board piece was not so it was easy to gain access.  The space on my current 2552 was more limited, so I had to use the smaller tank.  Both tanks significantly reduced the pump noise and run time.  Installation was simple and inexpensive--two things I like.

On my previous 2350 and current 2552, I installed an expansion tank that took care of the water pump noise--lot cheaper than replacing the pump.  I also had the water backflow and black gunk in the 2350 water fill/overflow tubes.  I replaced both tubes taking the sag out of each correcting those conditions.

There was another string on this forum about this problem.  My detector had the same problem last year, and PC sent me a replacement.  A couple months ago, the same problem occurred on the replacement detector.  The only way to quiet the signal is to disconnect it.  I will buy a different brand this time instead of replacing a bad one with another potential bad one.

Seems to be all too true, Ron.  Maybe if everyone called Norcold during their warranty period and claimed their hinge broke and got an extra door to use when the hinge breaks after the warranty runs out-- Norcold will decide it would be cost effective for them to change the hinge design.  Yeah, right... Haven't heard anything new on the class action suit against Norcold for their other problem. Guess they have bigger problems on their agenda.

The handle can be raised when locked, but it should not turn.

The hinge on our previous 2350 broke twice.  The first was within the warranty period, and Norcold sent us a new door.  The second time was outside the warranty period, and Norcold wouldn't do anything.  I kept contacting Norcold, but they said they wouldn't do anything since it was not in warranty - even they knew the hinge design was a problem.  The last person I talked with said he "would pass on my comments".  Yeah, right...  I fixed the last break with J-B Weld.

I always fill my tank at home so I don't have to worry about finding water and the quality of the water.  It does add weight, but not enough to concern me--I've had friends ride along that weighed more than the water Grin  It's whatever you're comfortable with I guess.

I'm going to be the camp host at Henry's Lake State Park in Idaho about 18 miles from the west entrance to Yellowstone, but won't be there until May 23--and they don't open for the season until after memorial day.  Anyway, your main concern would be the water hose if you have hook-ups.  I left mine connected once, and the next morning had a frozen hose and water pressure regulator which had to be replaced.  Lesson learned the hard way.  On a previous PC, I did have the outside shower head freeze and break.  I now unscrew the shower head when it's going to be below freezing--just in case.  Park next to Old Faithful--that'll keep everything warm...

They are.  I'll start looking for more info.  Please keep us informed if you find anything.

When we had a 2350, it developed a squeak above the driver that continually got worse.  I took it to the factory, and they took in on a test drive thinking I had a little rattle.  When they came back, they agreed I had a SQUEAK.  They took the cabinet above the driver apart and put additional screws where the shell attached to the Ford cab.  After several test drives, more screws and a little over half a day, they had the problem fixed.  I kept expecting the squeak to return, but it never did during the 2 years we had the 2350.  Good luck on your squeak...I can certainly relate to your situation.

A very timely post for us.  We have been discussing getting a Patty O'Shade, and wondered how it would fit/work.  Great info--thanks.

Camping World sells a lock that clamps around the outlet plug of the surge protector.  I thought about getting one because I had thoughts of someone stealing mine.  Then I realized the thief could simply cut the power cord or unplug the surge protector and take everything.  I decided to just relax and enjoy the campsite/area.

ok, my 2 cents worth--and that's about all it's worth!  I've lived in Texas, and the heat AND humidity is bad--more so in Houston.  Living in Arizona the past 10 years just north of Phoenix before going full time, the problems you'll encounter (even in Yuma) aren't the same as in TX and FL.  They store old airplanes in AZ because of the conditions.  The sun is never kind to motorhomes, but if you maintain a good wax job and run the engine occasionally to keep the seals lubricated, you'll be ok.  Covers are good if you can manage getting them on/off.  Consider all your options and personal limitations, but don't be overly concerned and frustrated/stressed.  Your PC will survive...

We had a 2350 on the Ford chasis, so I'm not familiar with any difference with the Sprinter.  If you don't have water anywhere under the chasis, all your drain lines are apparently closed.  The only thing I can think of that could cause your problem is that there is a syphon action taking place when you're moving - and the water is coming out your overflow line.  Don't know how that would happen, so I would suggest you call the factory.  By any chance are either of your holding tanks filling?  But, if you don't have your water pump on, no water should be leaving the fresh water tank.  Very strange...

Very interesting.  I, too, would be interested in more info and source.
