We just experienced the same problem in a shopping mall while in Halifax, Nova Scotia.

It had been raining all day. When we got back to our campsite, checked under the step and the wiring was wet. Water dripped from the wrap of electric tape.

Dried it up and that seemed to solve the problem for now.

When we get home, I will examine and reseal with heat shrink tape.

Ron,
George has done all sorts of diagnostics and finally called Xantrex. After speaking with Customer Service, they wanted us to send it back but since we are in Nova Scotia that is not feasible.

Yesterday, we emailed Kermit but have not yet received a reply. On the way back to Florida, we plan to swing over to Elkhart to get it taken care of. It is really a pain in the butt. Unable to use the outlet in the bath, under the sink, closet and outside receptacle.

This Xantrex unit should allow the receptacles to work when the unit is on or off but does not.

Gene had the same problem and was told PC received a bad batch of Xantrex inverters.

AWe are presently at Baddeck Cabot Trail Campground. We have been here for 5 days now and are thoroughly enjoying beautiful Nova Scotia.

We have been to the Alexander Graham Bell Museum (Canada National Historic Landmark), The Fortress of Lousibourg (another historic landmark), the Glenorra Distillery (the only distiller of Single Malt Scotch in North America-good stuff and I don't like scotch) and the Cabot Trail (spectacular scenery).

Then on to Halifax and Lunenburg and then off to PEI next week. Will update then.

Nova Scotia is beautiful!

We have the 2350 on the Sprinter Chassis. I agree with Ron on Many items but we would have added leveling jacks, upgrade the fantastic fan to the model with the rain sensor and upgrade the 2 burner stove with one that has an elctric ignition.

We are now in Nova Scotia. No handling problems from Florida to Nova Scotia. Our only problem is that our inverter is not working. Need to get it replaced but since we are on the road, hard to do. Pain in the patut!!!

Hi all,
We have made it to the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia. If any of you have the chance to get up this way, stay at New River Beach Provincial Park in New Brunswick. Great campground with a beach that is unsurpassed; tidal range is 30-40 feet. And the best part is that the $$ are only $22 American with the Senior discount. It was beautiful.

Gene

Thanks for the info. I'll call Kermit next week. The shop is closed for vac.

Yes, we're plug in to 110. No power without inverter powered up. Not always, able to get inverter to power up, sometimes turning the battery switch to use and store the inverter comes on.

Anyone--help me understand!

Without the inverter on, we can't use the receptacles below the sink, bathroom, main t.v or the outside receptacles. Once the inverter comes on, we can run these for a period of time and then it shuts down.

When the inverter is on, the battery indicator reads 13.5. The bathroom receptacle does not pop nor do any of the breakers or fuses.

I have checked the batteries, looked at the wiring trying to diagnose the problem. Is this normal?

We found no restictions at all. As a matter of fact, we thought it would be really busy because of the 75th and it was not at all.

At MM 175 is the Mabry Mill with a working mill and a good on site restaurant serving breakfast all day.

We stopped at Lake Ridge RV Resort in Hillsville VA for 2 nights to catch up on laundry and email. Pretty but had to move because first site was not level. If you stop, get a site on the lake.

We really enjoyed Fort Clinch State Park in Fernadina Beach FL. Nice beach, Civil War Fort.

We have done, so far, 1889 miles from Punta Gorda, FL to Ma. No issues with the PC so far. Tonight is the first of many lobsters on this trip. Cheers!

We just made our way up to Massachusetts from Florida. We travelled the Parkway/Shenadoah Skyline Drive from Fancy Gap to Front Royal VA.

The nicest campground that we were in was Loft Mountain on Skyline Dr. Level Pads, clean!!! It is in the National Park so no hookups.

We saw one other PC  while travelling on the the Parkway.

We will be on our way to the Candian Maritimes next week. Plan to do the Cabot Trail in Nova Scotia and then on to Prince Edward Island for a couple of weeks.

Our 2350 is all that it is cracked up to be.

If there are any of you in the area, let us know. Would love to connect with other PC owners.

Let's put it this way--as soon as the City of Punta Gorda saw that thing we would probably be locked up for life as well as a $1,000,000.00 fine!

We are SOOOOO envious of all of you that can store your PC in your garage!

When we first moved to Punta Gorda we were seriously into boating and bought in a deed restricted area with a canal behind the house for the boat. Since we started RVing, we have spent more time with the Coach and less with the boat. We have to store the PC in a storage lot, not under cover, and worry about the Florida sun doing a job on the full body paint.

So be it!!! I guess we could move (highly unlikely).

I plan to post as we get a little closer to departure time and see what happens. It would be fun to meet other PC owners along the way.

There is a rally each year. We hope to make it next year.

This year we are going to Savannah, GA, Blue Ridge Parkway, Shenandoah National Park on our way to Nova Scotia and PEI. It should be an interesting trip.

Welcome to the Forum.

We took delivery of our 2350 Sprinter (no slide) in January. We are now getting ready for our 3 month trip to the Canadian Maritimes. We leave in 2 weeks and are really excited to get on the road--got to get away from the hurricanes in Florida.

We tentatively plan to head to Arizona in the Fall.

Hope you enjoy your coach. So far, we are delighted with ouor PC.
