Can't help you with the leaks but we have noticed that our hinges are rusting. We contribute that to the high humidity in Florida. It is rough on motor homes as well as any metal. When we moved here 18 years ago, I HAD a nice collection of Baldwin Brass. It now is all pitted and gross looking.

 I'd start by checking the manual for the fault codes. E-02 I do not have my manual here. If the batteries are getting voltage it my be a loose wire. It may be the connection on the battery or the inverter.

I agree with you that the propane cooktop is a waste of space and a collector of crumbs, dirt and whatever. I can honestly say that we have, maybe, used our cooktop, at the most 3 or 4 times in 5 years. It's either our grill, electric frypan, toaster oven , induction cooktop or microwave. We rarely dry camp so have electric most of the time.

 Last spring, I bought an induction cooktop  from Amazon to take with us on our New England trip. I bought a small table to put it on. I wanted it specifically  to cook lobsters and steamers outside of the PC. It worked wonderfully. The water heated very quickly and we didn't have that seafood smell in the PC. I can't remember what else I might have cooked using it--my mind is usually focused on seafood.

Some of my "stainless" pans worked on it but I did bring along my enamel lobster pot and I bought a smaller enamel pot along the way (for the steamers).

We used that cooktop more than we used the stove.

Welcome and congrats on your 2910! Celebrate Our 3rd PC is a 2013 2910 with a single slide and WE LOVE IT!! We wanted twin beds, so the Factory built a model with the twins for us. We also did some other modifications that worked out very well. We posted pics of our unit-check them out.

We spend about 3-4 monthes in the summer away from Florida (had enough of hurricanes) and the rig is very comfortable for that amount of time.

Anyway, welcome and if you have any questions, just holler!!!

Welcome Dave and Betty and congrats. You made the right decision. We have had 3 PCs (2350 Sprinter, 2551 and now a 2910, 1 slide). We live in Punta Gorda FL. If you have any questions or would like to take a look at our unit, don't hesitate to PM us.

We also plan to be at WP Franklin COE in January (20, 21 and 22). Barry and Sue will be there at that time as well so come on down!!!

  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!!

Judi and George

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.

Judi and George
