We had them on a class A. They did help a little with the heat but they made it so dark inside we did not use them very much. They also cut the view so much that I had to lean over to see outside. We have had five motorhomes sine that one and none of them got window shades.

Call onan. I lost a door once and the replacement cost me $100. You have to make sure the bottom of thr door is in the track before locking it in.

For our first time we were there we stayed at Eby's Pines campground.  Just down the road from the factory, kinda out in the country. There were only a few level sites. For the second second time we stayed at Shipshewana South. Most of the sites were level and very wide. It is very close to the Amish market and shopping. Lots of good places to eat. It took about 20 minutes to get to the factory but was well worth the drive. It allowed me to check out how the PC drove and handled. My wife listened for wind noise and any rattles that should not be there.

I would strongly suggest you camp where there are full hookups in order to check out all the features and functions of the new motorhome. Without full hookups, how will you know that the dump valves work? Open and close every door, drawer, roof vent, and all outside compartments. Turn on every light. Take an electric plug tester and plug it into every plug both while hooked up to shore power and when not hooked up, turn on the inverter and check the plugs in the wings, under the kitchen sink and the outside plug. If you get the jacks, make sure you put them down even if you don't need them. I drove three hours in a storm to Indianapolis before I camped and found out they forgot to put them on. I had to drive back the next day. Try the TV, DVD (take a DVD with you when you go to pick it up), the surround sound and if you get a satellite dish, that also. I know that is a lot to check out and may take more than one day. So I would suggest if you have the time to spend two nights at the campground. You can also tour the Amish stuff if you get done checking things out the first day.


Let us know how it goes and what you think of this life style. and most of all, have fun.

Yep!

If both sides are the fuzzy part of the velcro then you have a defective set of curtains. Call the factory and tell them what you have. Yes I know you bought used and the PC is already out of warranty but they can help you get a new set or tell you how to fix the old set.

I try to keep the slide side lower than the other side. That way any water that does get on the top runs away from the body and not into it.

I also checked my ignition switch and one click counter clockwise is the acc position. The radio works on it. Remember to turn it off and not run down the engine battery. The white switch on the dash must be held in for several minutes in order to start a dead engine battery

Welcome to the PC world. I am sorry you are having problems right out the door.

What happens if you turn the ignition switch to run but not all the way to start? Will the Radio/GPS work then? I don't understand what the TV signal has to do with the GPS. Can you explain it to me?

Hair dryer or heat gun from underneath, or a knife and pry bar, or a wire saw (boy scout days) to cut the glue. Or wait for another very hot day, one coming next week.

Have you checked out mail forwarding services? FMCA.com and Good Sam offers such a service. I have never used it but it sounds good as long as you plan on staying a one location for a few days.

    One of the first things I do when I get a new motorhome is to have Bilstein HD shocks installed on all four corners. I order them from eshock.com and take them to my local truck and tire shop (Rice Tire) in Frederick, Md. For HD shocks eshock wants $89 each or all four for $356. Comfort are $83 each or $332 for all four. Rice charges me about $25 each or $100 for all four to install them. I am getting all four for what CW wants for two.

    You might want to call where you get your tires and ask them what they charge to install shocks if you bring them in and what they want for them if they get them for you.

Hi Cindy and Dale,


I would start troubleshooting by going on the roof and spin the fan by hand.  Make sure it spins freely.  If not, inspect for something like a twig to even something wound around the shaft of the fan, check for clearance between the blade and everything else.

If the blade spins freely, then you can look into the next possibility.  Maybe the switch that turns the fan on/off when opening and closing the cap has malfunctioned.  I am not sure where that switch is located in our fan.  If you can get to it, make sure it is aligned right and clicks on/off when the cap opens and closes.  Maybe the switch is good but got loose and is not

There is no need to go on the roof. Just pop the screen off from inside, like when cleaning the fan/screen. You can do everything from inside. Ron must have one of the old style fans that required removing a bunch of screws to remove the screen.

The Fantastic fan runs off the house batteries. Check the ceiling lights. Check the switch by the door. Call Fantastic vent company, they are great to work with.

I just watched it. It is very well done. A little long but worth the time. It should help a new person looking at a PC understand some of the advantages. It should help some of the older owner see some of the upgrades also.
 ThumbsUp
