We were told by Diamond Shield to protect it with 303 Aerospace Protectant. After washing the coach, we put it on and then before each trip.

We have reservations at Blackwoods in July. We have never stayed there--we have always stayed at private campgrounds. I figure that it is like most National Park Campgrounds meaning no electricity, water but they do have a dump. $10 a night with the Senior Pass is a bargain. Actually, we may leave Blackwoods and go to Bar Harbor Campground if there is room. Bar Harbor Campground is no reservations but it does have amenities We have been to Acadia a few times but always in the summer when the shuttle buses, sponsored by L. L Bean, are running. I believe that they haved stopped for the season when you will be there. That being said, if you want to cruise around the area, I would sugges that you might want to rent a car.

Cadillac Mountain is beautiful as the sun rises; check out Jordan Pond and the restaurant there. Bar Harbor can be very busy (at least in the summer) but it may not be so busy when you are there. Also, check out the west side--Tremont, Bass Harbor Head Lighthouse, Somesville. In summer, it is the quiet side. There is a good seafood restaurant in Tremont--can't remember the name but Tremont is so small it might be the only one. All I remember that it is a yellow building.

We were wondering where you guys were---those tornadoes are scary. I would rather have a hurricane, at least you know they're coming. Stay safe.

We TOTALLY agree with Tom Hanlon!!! Our 1st PC did not have a slide (2350 Sprinter). The second (2551) did not have a slide; we opted for captains chairs. What a mistake looking back!! Our reasons for ordering without the slide was that we thought, erroniously, that the slide would add more weight therefore decreasing our fuel consumption. Minor!!

Now that we have our 2910 (with only 1 slide) we look back and say what fools we were. The slide adds so much more room and flexibility to the living area, it is easy to put in and out (press the button).

And the Euro chair is so comfortable!! Since you will be full timing, you might want to reconsider. To each his own!!! Take a good look at the area that you would gain with the slide.

Welcome Carol,

We had them build a floor to ceiling cabinet behind the driver's seat  in our 2910 and it works out perfectly. It's a great place to store camera, binoculars, scotch and other assorted small stuff. I really don't understand why PC doesn't build it for all their MH. Yeah, it adds $$$ but what a waste of good space without it!!! They initially told us they wouldn't do it because you would be unable to recline the driver's seat--how often do we recline the driver's seat?

Welcome and enjoy your PC

Welcome to the Forum. You will love your PC. We are on our 3rd and are ABSOLUTELY delighted that we found PC. We are heading out for 4 days (right now) to the east coast of FL and if June, we head out for 3 monthes.

This Forum has so much information. We are always learning something new. Celebrate Celebrate Celebrate

Great ideas--my mother has a larger pill case which would hold more spices. For me, the small pill case is too small. I love to cook so I bring what I need.

This year, I plan to bring a basil plant with me. We'll see how that works out. Since we are going to be at Orr's Island for a month, I can leave it on the picnic table.

We have reservations at Blackwoods Campground July 29 leaving on August 3rd. It looks like we might miss you.

If you tire of the National Park Campgrounds, I hear that the Bar Harbor Campground is nice. You can't make reservations and they only take cash/check but you get to choose your site, they have water, electric and a pool. We are thinking of staying a couple of nights at Blackwoods and then driving over to Bar Harbor Campground to see what they have available--if we lose $20/30 by leaving Blackwoods and going to Bar Harbor it is no biggy.

We then go to Orr's Island Campround for a month. We have never stayed in one place for a month before, so it will be interesting.

Hope we are able to see you and partake of that wind.

Holly and John,

All I can say is WOW--so much for Customer Service.

On RV.Net Forum, there is a place where you can Email Marcus Lemonis. Try that. Now I know why RV.Net Forum members say to stay away from Camping World's Service! He should be made aware. I agree with Barry---

You guys were terribly inconvenienced. Head South to warmer weather (although, it's 57 here now).

Let us know what happens

I keep buying stuff to take with us this summer. Publix Supermarkets in the South have Buy One Get One free every week. Crackers, Chips, Coffee (I have enough for this year and next) etc. Looks like all we will have to buy when we hit New England  is lobster, clams, good fresh corn and tomatoes!!   Heart Shower

For us, Fort Wilderness is the way to go. Yes, it is expensive as are the parks but you are right there. You can take the boat to the Magic Kingdom, come back for lunch then head out again. The buses run frequently right from the campground. We have been there 3 times in the last 4 years and thoroughly enjoy it.

This ignition problem sounds similar to a problem we had with our fridg. Started run, then shut down. I discovered the ignition gap between the igniter and the electrode was too close. I used a flat screw driver to reset the gap. I measured the thickness of the screw driver and marked the thickness needed for the gap. Set the gap. No problem since.

Barry & Sue had posted a website: listing service manuals. I found the fridg manual which showed me how to solve my problem. I've checked the website for the Atwood manual but no luck. However, there is good info on solving ignition problems and causes. Go down to; Jump down; click on furnace manuals, then Direct spark ignition. I'm going to look at my heater to find the electrode in case I ever have this problem.

Bob and Peg,

Hope all goes well. We know you have put a lot of effort into your PC. Hope it stays off the market for a while longer and also hope to see you in June at Promised Land State Park. We have reservations at the Pickeral Point Campground in the park for Friday June 27th, Site 166.

I think decision process is determined by how you plan to use the MH and what options may be important to you.

For us, when we ordered the 2910 as a custom coming from the 2551, we wanted a comfortable living area. The Euro chairs and the galley area certainly fit the bill. This year we plan to spend the month  of August on Orr's Island in Maine and then head to NH and Vermont. We will be in New England for 3 monthes. We also wanted twin beds--actually what we really wanted was the front of the 2910 and rear of the 3100 but Kermit could not build it that way.

As you said, insulated glass windows were a must for us. Noise level was a major factor in that decision.

Phoenix will build what you want if it is possible.

We travelled to the Grand Canyon and other National Parks and were very comfortable. There was no problem towing our Honda Fit.

Another thought in the buying decision is Customer Support. We did not know, at the time we bought our 2350, of the fantastic customer service. Once you buy your PC, Kermit and the crew at the factory will do everything in their power to help out with "whatever". I can't tell you how many times Kermit, the owner of PC, has called us to answer questions. We are so impressed with that.

If you want to see our 2910 this summer, send us a PM and we can hook up somewhere in ME or NH.
