61  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: Directions for Samsung TV/DVD Player on: January 24, 2013, 11:52:28 am
On our previous pc's, I ran a cable from the outside through the wall up to the front cabinet where I connected it to the receiver.  I would then connect the cable from the tv to the ant out on the receiver.  If you don't want to drill a hole in the outside, install a connection box and run the cable through the floor/wall, you can buy a flat connector that goes over the window.  On our current pc, I had the factory install the cables into the front cabinet and rear tv location from the outside with an outside box next to the power and cable boxes.  That way I can leave the tv connected to the antenna, connect the directv receiver to the connections on the inside of the cabinet and simply switch by changing the tv source to av.  There is also a way to change the antenna connection/booster you have in the front cabinet to allow connection of the receiver, but it got too complicated for my simple mind.  Instructions can be found on the internet, but I can't remember exactly where.

Had the same problem on our previous pc.  I removed the light next to the camera, and pulled the camera cable out until the connection was exposed.  I then disconnected, reconneted the two ends and taped the heck out of the entire cable/connection.  Never had the problem again.  There's plenty of excess cable in the hollow space.

Now I was told the switch was for emergency starting when your vehicle battery was dead????

The rollers do cause indentions/carpet bunching, but the elimination of the carpet solved that condition.  On my previous PC, I installed laminate flooring, and that solved the indention condition (now all pc's come with laminate flooring).  This is our 3rd pc, and we have had the door latch breaking problem on all 3.  I, too, have replaced most of the latches with magnetic catches--condition solved.  Lights in our current 2012 2552 are good at night - no problems so far as we're concerned.  I was also was concerned the new frameless windows would not be as good as the old slide windows, but we have been pleasantly surprised and happy with the new windows.  Yes, there is less storage space in the pc's, but remember you're not buying a class a.  We have found we don't need half the stuff we thought we needed to take along.  If you really need more space, don't buy a class b.  The macerator works great, empties the tanks quickly and you don't have to deal with the stinky slinky.  You'll find the pc is excellent quality for the price.  You can certainly buy more comfort, storage, living space, fancy interiors, etc., but the price is considerably higher, you'll have to deal with a lot more warranty service (as well as dealers) and your frustration level will be quite a bit higher.  PC is not perfect, but the company will quickly handle any reasonable problems/concerns.  Also, take a look at the recall lists--how many pc issues can you find?  Anyway, that's my 2 cents worth.

A class-action lawsuit has been filed against Norcold in CA and Fl claiming the company knew of fire risks from rv refrigerators.  According to the complaint, the fix Norcold came up with kills the refrigerator if the problem occurs-- requiring a new refrigerator--at your own expense if out of warranty.  Up till now, I thought the main problem with their refrigerators was the door hinges breaking.  The complete  complaint can be found at:

I've been parked in a campground for the past 9 weeks with the step out, and the battery is still fully charged.  The lights under the steps are not on either.  You must have a Ford wiring issue.
67  Main Forum / General Discussion / Pet Issue on: September 17, 2012, 05:34:30 pm
We're currently campground hosts in an Idaho state park and had a campers' dog bite someone.  The owner of the dog did not have vacination records for the dog with him which caused him considerable problems.  Eventually, their vet faxed partial information which kept the sheriff from taking the dog, but they had to complete a lot of extra paper work.  Word to the wise: tags are good, but copies of current records for your pet are vital.
68  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Slide on a 2010 2551 and side mirror on same unit on: August 23, 2012, 08:36:52 pm
Don't worry.  The metal shavings are not a problem.  I've had them on all 3 of the pc's I've owned.  There's an old string on this forum that discussed this issue several years ago.  Can't remember the exact cause, but it has something to do with residual shavings from the installation.  Your mirror issue is fairly common, and the 2 set screws mentioned earlier are the problem/solution.  Had the same thing happen on a pc I transported for the company, and on my 2nd pc.  Minor issue easily solved.

I have never turned the HWH level switch off after levelling the pc.  It goes off once I turn the key off.  This is my third pc, and all had the levelers.  The man in Elkhart who installed the levelers on my second pc said you didn't have to turn off the system--that it went off after a set time on.  He recommended not turning it off when you raise the jacks and leave the campsite to make sure all jacks retract completely.  The system then turns itself off.  He said that if you turn it off and one of the jacks hasn't fully retracted, you'll get "crud" on the cylinder.

If you have an electric compressor, you can also turn the generator on and use the outside electrical outlet.  Did that once when I had a flat, and a man came over with an electric impact wrench to help remove/install the lug nuts.

Hey, Ron--I put wood flooring in my 2350, and it was very easy to do.  It would be even easier for you since you don't have a slide.  It made a world of difference in the look and feel inside.

Glad to see your post.  My detector does the same thing.  Have had to disconnect it while we're on this extended trip.  I'll have to call and see about getting a replacement, too.
73  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Scheduled Ford service on: July 11, 2012, 09:49:33 pm
I have a problem in that the Ford owners manual says 6 qts.  Overfilling the oil can result in problems, so I think Ford would change the owners manual if 7 qts was now the proper amount to preclude possible legal actions against Ford ???  Just a thought, but I spent too much time in corprate matters to dismiss this.  Something just doesn't sound right....
74  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Scheduled Ford service on: July 08, 2012, 05:36:32 pm
The Ford owners manual on my 2012 shows 6 quarts.  Are you sure about 7?
75  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: surge protection on: June 07, 2012, 01:16:42 pm
I also use the 30 amp plug-in surge guard from camping world.  Got it on "sale", but it's still rather expensive.  Not as expensive as replacing everything in the pc, though.  In addition to checking for proper wiring and line voltage, it also has a time delay that protects the ac when power goes off and back on.
