Yes it is Mike .... The installer told me that it is something that Winnebago came up with. And that this model is the unit used to replace the water in my 2008 2350

Had my new water heater installed on Friday, now I have the chore of trying to put the cabinet back together.
The new Atwoods come with a pipe on the back that allows a hook up to the engine. This pipe has got to go, I  cannot  reassemble the cabinet wall with it there.  Hopefully it'll be done today. 

Must be ready to go, as we are for Wells Maine for the week.

No surprise with Ron, right?
Like BGolden, I too would like a 2450 but it ain't gonna happen.  This baby's gotta last us.

Tom, You could set this up to do the "Pool Clicky Thing" so it tallies up the votes for you.  You want all to see at a glance that there is only one vote for a no-slide.   LOL

You got 2 no votes on the slide ..... Karen said " NO". There goes my 2450 Heart Shower

Yes Tom Hanlon my fridge works the same way as your 3 way in the Chinook.  We do keep it on auto and for that reason it switched to DC  when the LP failed. Again this happened while we were driving when the LP failed.

The first year(2008) we had a problem with the LP, two service techs could not find the problem. It was one of those situations it worked or did not. Of course it worked for RV techs. In 2009 the problem began again on our way home from Branson. We pulled off in PA at an RV dealer that went through the whole thing and again could not find the problem.

Finally I called a guy that services at RV s at your home, he too was going nuts about it. After 1 hour he decided to pull the piezo out and took a look at it under a magnifying glass to see that was a small black dot. From this very annoying little black dot my piezo was arcing. We replaced the piezo and lived happily ever after.  I now have a magnifying glass in my tool box.

I kept that piezo for show and tell.

Thumbs up to you for your reply,
Bill Golden.

Tom and Ron,
I have used it on DC only when the unit switched over during the time when we were having problems keeping the LP lit. We did have to replace the piezo.

Ron, your dealer tried to talk me out of it as well, but I went ahead and bought it as a backup.
Forgetting that I did order it as an extra, my wife just reminded about that .

Beyond the ignitor, the fridge has done the job.

I am sorry to hear you are not happy with the Norcold fridge.

Our 2007 model works great, surprisingly effective & efficient working on propane as well as 110V, and it meets the needs for the two of us perfectly.  I wonder why you are so disappointed to replace it with a standard 110V fridge.  Do you need more interior volume to hold more?  Or is yours not working right?  I could see it falling short for a big weekend party with family and such.  But then I'd supplement with a nice size cooler for those occasions.  If I remember right, some 2008s on up have a built-in cooler.  The slide-out storage bin has a drain hole to let out the melted ice.

Regardless....


Good luck with your project.  I would be curious to read what you learned.

Ron, on your 2007, is your fridge a 2 way or 3 way?  On my 2008  the fridge is a 3 way. AC/DC/LP.
It works great on all 3.

BGolden ... I believe your cargo box and swing away frame may be just what I need.  I have a 2551 PC.  Does it clear the spare tire cover on the Phoenix Cruiser or did you have to buy the hitch extender?  I removed the bottom section of my ladder so clearance there is not an issue. After using it for an extended period of time are there any additional concerns or insight with the product that you could share with me?

NLK
yes we did add the extender.  Like you, I also removed the bottom of the ladder, the box clears both the spare tire and the rear storage area.  I did replace the bottom of the ladder by drilling out the rivets and adding locking pins allowing the ladder to close up and secured with a bungee cord.

When I first purchased the Stow Away box I filled out the questionnaire on their web site. The company followed up by calling me and asked a few questions, so they made all the right suggestions helping me with the purchase.  After my 5 years using the box I did have to re secure the wiring inside for the lighting, with a few wire ties, nothing major, I also added a thin piece of plywood to protect the rear light fixtures from coming into contact with items stored in the box. As I removed a lawn chair I caught the light connector, so I decided to fabricate some protection.
The product has performed well and gives the ability for more storage.
I hope this helps.

When in Shipshewana, ask for Amish Sammy & take the buggy tour! He gives a really good historical ride through the countryside. I think it's only like $6 per person.

I will look up Amish  Sammy.  We will look forward to a Good buggy around the area...Now all I need to do is decide on campground in the area for two P C's.  I've checked out a few on RV Park review.

This company produces a great product, and they have very good customers service.
The box I purchased swings from the mh to allow access to the rear storage compartment.

Check out Stow Away hitch mount box. I have used mine on my 2350 for 5 years. The box plugs in to the hitch plug for brake lights, rear lights, and the license plate holder light. If you go to the website and submit photos of the rear of your mh they will recommend the box for your needs. I'll post picture for you to see here.

The time of year has come to begin my Back Road Trips for the year.  Shipshewana Indiana will be on the list and I'm thinking of running US 6 across Pennsylvania. Once we complete the beating on I 84 across Conn. and NY we'll exit at Milford, PA. to pick up US 6.

I have checked out the PA US 6 web site and I'm wondering if anyone has travelled this road.

I have been warned by my wife no more dirt roads. Off road motor home adventures are not for her..... pulling hair out
