1  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / roof and slide on: November 18, 2014, 11:40:23 am
  Getting ready for our last trip, I found a couple problems. As I began to put out the slide, the slide jumped as though someone was holding the bottom of slide. Checking outside the slide, I found that the butyl tape used to seal the trim around the slide had oozed out from under the trim. The butyl tape had adhered to the rubber seal at the bottom of the slide. This play-dough like substance was easily peeled off. Problem solved.

  Next, to give it a bath. Starting with the roof, I found the caulking on the rear where the roof meets the end cap was missing. The original leveling seal had leveled below the hole that should be filled. Inspecting further, I found screw heads had also come through the seal and the ends of the shower dome where showing. After cleaning and inspecting all the seals, I used Dicor Lap Sealant Non-Leveling to reseal and cover all exposed cracks and screw heads.

We had the factory build us a custom 2910. It has a single slide in the living area and twin beds in the rear. You can see pics if you search our posting titled "Our 2910 Single slide" in June 2013. We traded in our 2012 2551. We wanted more room in the living area and that was accomplished with the 2910. We also wanted twin beds. The only thing that we miss is the wardrobe that we had in the 2551.

We tow a Honda Fit. It's like it is not even there. Last year we were in Colorado and had no problems with the mountain passes. The Fit is lighter than the Jeep, but there will not be a problem towing.

Holly and John,
We were in Moab last year.  We found the brewery, as well. Another cool place to visit is the Castle Creek Winery. It is about 14 miles down 28 (I think that's the route #) from Moab. They have wine tastings, a museum of John Wayne and the films that were made in that area. It is a beautiful place and the wine is not too shabby!!

Welcome to the Forum and congrats on your PC!!!! We can guarantee that you will be as happy with your PC as we have been with our 3--I can say that we finally got it right (for us and the way that we use it) after the 3rd try, although all have been wonderful rigs and the support from the factory has been supurb.

We stayed in CS last year at the Air Force Academy Campground, courtesy of our nephew. We thoroughly enjoyed our time there. What a beautiful area!!

Again Welcome Celebrate Celebrate y--and congrats. If you are ever in FL, let us know!!

There is an article in the July 2014 Family Motor Coach that states "as a last resort, the owner could consult with the chassis manufacturer and ask whether the tires could be replaced with larger tires or tires that have a higher load rating". The title of the article is Weighing your RV.

A little leak!

On the last day of our 3 month trip and the last dump at 5:00 AM, in the dark, I opened the gray water valve. Water poured out under the coach. I shut-off the valve. I washed the pavement but did not look for the problem. With a full black water tank and no visable sign of leaking, we headed home. This is what I found.


The macerator bayonet had broken. I've called Carol, she is sending out a replacement at a cost of $40.

Chet and Marsha,
Welcome to the FORUM Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate and congrats on your new PC.

We live in Punta Gorda Fl. We are now on our way back to FL from New England. It is always fun to meet PC owners. There are a few of us who TRY (the operative word) to meet at W.P Franklin Corps of Engineers Park in January. We would love to have you, or anyone who is in Southwest FL in Jan. meet up with us. We plan to be there on 1/21, 1/22 and 1/23 (I think). If you guys are interested, I will check when we get home. Sites are hard to get there in the winter.

I have compared the PC and the Nexus on 3 separate occasions at the Tampa RV Show.

I agree that the square style of the body turns me off as well as the cab over. I didn't like the interior of the Coach--they tried to be too trendy and the fit and finish did not compare with the PC.

We also got an email from them soliciting our business. Not impressed!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Forum.

We picked up our 2910 in 2013 and we are still loving it. I do have one suggestion---have the factory put a beveled mirror behind the sink and beside the stove. When doing dishes, water tends to splash behind the sink and  could spot the wood paneling that is behind the sink. With the beveled mirror that they use, it looks nice and you can just wipe up the water spots with glass cleaner. I think that we posted a photo of what we did.

Running your generator will provide power to the refrigerator without gas.

Last year, we pulled our toad over Monarch Pass in Colorado which was 11,312 ft. The toad was a Honda Fit so very light. We climbed with no problems, although we were very slow. That was our first time mountain driving--we were concerned when we started out but all was good. You shouldn't have any problems.

If you call the Maine Department of Tourism--207-623-0363 or email them at www.mainetourism.com, they will send you out a map as well as their Camping Guide and their publication: "Maine Invites You". I called and got all of the above in a couple of weeks.

We use tje FMCA atlas as well and we also have the Walmart Atlas.

Hope you enjoy your trip. We are leaving on the 16th for Massachusetts and Maine.
