PC will do the stove anyway you want. My wife did not like the recessed stove and didn't want to cover or uncover for a work surface. So PC just surface mounted our stove. It's easier to get big pots or frying pans on.

Disconnecting and taking out the pump, takes me about 5 minutes.

If you break those tabs off, you can just buy that piece from Carol for about $35. You do need a vise to be able to hold the pump and unscrew the receiving end off. They give you all the seals you need.
No leaks after it was replaced.
I've broken those tabs 3 times in the past 11 years.

They used a collar with 2 pointed screws which puncture the hose. I replace screws and protected the hose from the screws.
You can actually fix the hose with some thin electrician's tape, which goes into the hose corrugations and seems to work for me.

I had a few extra 2x8 boards. I cut them up into 1' or 2' pieces. Made the cuts on a 45o angle to allow easier entry. If there are any irregular stones on the ground, occasionally they break.
I just put them on bottom of the side cabinets, they don't take up much room and are easy to clean off.

You are aware this stove as well as Coleman stoves require full bottle pressure, which means if you want to T in a line from the tank, you must T it in before the gas regulator on the RV propane tank. This is easy to do.
Looking at the picture of the Nexgrill this looks too high for one of the low side compartments.
This is what I use and it easily fits into the small side compartment. Coleman Grill Stove from Amazon.

PC doesn't read and respond to posts here. I would suggest sending pictures and asking Kermit. They know their units better than anyone.

I had a bad rubber seal on my slide-out and asked a local dealer if he could fix it, he said it would take a week and cost a fortune. I called PC, brought it in and they fixed it in 4 hours. It required them taking out the whole slide-out to make the repair.

But they are not perfect and one area that could be improved is with custom modifications and requests.  The process is far too casual without enough written paperwork and check points during the process to make sure everything is done the way the customer wanted.

I agree with Jatrax. When I was buying my second PC I had all sorts of changes which I made sketches, showed pictures and wrote detailed instructions. I went to the factory early to trade in my old PC and found they had just started on my new unit, I had no idea. There was no indication that any of these instructions got passed through properly, so I had a second set and put those in my just started unit so everyone would see them as it got built.
It seemed to work as there were no mistakes, a few small jobs that didn't matter when they were done, they waited for me to pickup the new rig so they could double check that it was done right.

They probably should let you give your instructions to Bob (Foreman) and let you go through these so he understands them. I don't think Earl has much input as they are building the unit and has lots of other things to worry about especially when they are getting ready to go to the big winter shows.

I have the Progressive HW30, Phoenix hardwired it in. But in two older RV's I hardwired myself. Easy to do.

I was at a campground that a tree fell on their main power feed knocking out the neutral wire. Voltage varied from 60v to 180v instantly. All the other camper ruined microwaves and refrigerators.
Mine blew a hardwired fuse on circuit board. In two days progressive sent me a new easy to change board. In the meantime there is an override so you can still get semi-protected power.

Expensive and sometimes a pain when campgrounds wiring is too small and voltage drops below 104v when using microwave.

I mounted the digital display next to RV power cut-off switch by door, so I could look in door when hooking up to see if everything is OK.

Gail, Make sure they are Deep Cycle and not called Marine Batteries. those are a combination of starting & deep-cycle.

Another thing, is monitor your battery voltage without any loads on with a digital voltmeter. Try to never go below 12.10 volts (50% discharge ). This will ensure batteries will last at least 4 years. Watch battery cell water level at least every couple of months and use distilled water.

But if not aligned properly will it still work?

The Garmin mount for this model has a suction cup & a quick disconnect for the unit.
On the Ford Dash I just used double back tape to adhere a thin flat metal plate, the suction cup holds for weeks. The suction cup will not stay on the dash at that point since there is a slight curve.

I saw one that was installed slightly misaligned so that it was super hard to open and close on someone else's PC.
It needs to fixed, lube won't help.
Mine works very smoothly.

I love my Garmin 2797LMT.
It has a 7", non-glare screen and a great mount. You push a button and take it with you. I mount it on dash to right of my radio, so a passenger can see it also, big size is easy to see and gives traffic notices. Free (4 times/yr) lifetime map update.

Actually the best feature is it will read a GPX file that I can upload from free BaseCamp map program which uses the same maps as the Garmin. That way I know ahead of time exactly where it is going to route me.

Do you have 2 -12v batteries or 2-6v batteries?
If 12v, buy deep cycle 12v to replace, you won't have enough height to install 6v Golf Cart batteries.

Here is a solution I use occasionally if camped near water. I carry a 50' - 3/4" hose and connect to the discharge and route the hose into the water. There is no rule about putting gray water in water, just not on the ground.
In Mexico, I have run this hose to an outhouse once and emptied both tanks there.
