HelenJames what is your point? You have posted 5 times and they all say the same thing. What are you trying to do?

I don't know if Phoenix will be at the show or not. They are close this week for vacation and will be opening back up on Monday.
BTY, several years ago the show moved from Harrisburg to Hershey. It made my drive a little farther to get there.  nod

    I also use a portable surge protector. I had a 50 amp protector in my last motorhome that I kept when I traded it in. A friend had a 30 amp that he bought before getting his new 50 amp 5th wheel. Since I wanted the smaller, lighter 30 amp and he could use the 50 amp, we traded protectors. Now both of us have the correct protector for our rigs. I found that at some campgrounds I don't feel I need the protector, but at other older campgrounds or the weather is bad, I will hook it up. I guess I should hook it up all the time, but I get lazy sometimes. On the last motorhome with the 50 amp, I found it did cut off several times because of low power. Low power occurs when to many rigs are plugged into the circuit and running to many a/c units. This is more of a problem at older campgrounds that did not install the required electrical circuits for todays load. Low power will cause your a/c compressor and your ciricut boards to burn up. A surge protector is cheap insurance compared to replacing an a/c, microwave or frig.

Thank you.
 
    We will be coming from Red Lodge going to Gardiner. Hopefully the construction will be done by the time we get there the last week in August. If I understand it, we will be going up the switch backs. I have heard is the hardest part to drive.

    I do understand how to drive in the mountains. I have driven in the Rockys many times. They can make most people feel like "flatlanders" in a hurry.  Grin The Mountains in WV, PA, SC, NC and western MD have some real steep hills that can smoke the brakes in a big way, but they are not as long as in the rockys. We will be taking the PC from Baltimore to Cass, WV this weekend, so we should get a feel for how it handles in the mountains. Your explation will help a lot of people that don't understand yet.

    I can hardly wait to take the PC on this trip.

Hi rmmpe,

    Can you give us some more information about US route 212 (The Beartooth Hwy) in Mt. and Wy?  Help We are planning on taking it ( east to west ) the week before labor day and staying in Rocky Mountain Campground in Gardiner, Mt for the holiday. I am figuring one day to cross the hwy and four days in Larmar valley, as I have never been to that part of Yellowstone. I have done the southern part and just love it. We plan on sending a couple of days out of West Yellowstone also.

    We just downsized from a 35' Winnie class A to the 2350 on the E450. Before the Winnie we had a 21' Chinook and really missed the smaller size.  Cry  The nice thing about this size motorhome is that we can roam anywhere and still get into a campground as they seem to be able to fit us in.

    We just got back from the third time out and my to-do list only has three things on it. 1 get mirrors with shorter arms so they don't stick out so far, 2. drill some holes near the top of the cabinets on both sides of the TV to let the heat out and 3. figure out where to put all my camera gear I want to take to Yellowstone and Rocky Mountain NP.  Wink
   
    Thank you

Thank you ThankYou, I have already done the silcone on the back-up cable on our 2010 PC2350. I also found it washing the MH last week.
About 1/2 hour ago I noticed the heat in the two cabinets. I was thinking about looking for a vent to put at the top on the inside to let the heat escape into the coach. Did you figure out what type of insulation and how to put it up in those wierd shaped cabinets? thinking

Ron, I understand where you are coming from. This is my first camera without sound and we sure do miss it. I am not a big fan of Sony as I feel you pay a lot for the name and don't get what everyone else gives you for the same price. I guess we will have to go back to the old days of hand signals, you know before the cameras.  Cry

No sound on my 2010 PC 2350. I asked Bobby at the factory and he checked with Carol who said that the new Sony's do not have sound.

Hi,

    Can anyone tell me if the electric water heater is hooked into the inverter? If I turn on the electric switch, will it heat the water from the batteries?
    There are two reasons I ask this question. 1. Will it run down the house batteries while parked?  Cry  2. Can I heat the water while driving?  ThumbsUp

Thank you in advance,
Tom

    We just picked up our new 2010 PC 2350 at the factory and let me first say what a great experence that was. Everyone is super nice and helpful. Amanda did the walk thru, she was very professisonal and whatever she did not know off hand, she found out for me. Bobby and Don where there to help also. Don even washed the rig between the rain showers. It did not stay clean very long but it did look  LOL nice when we got it.

    We left the factory and went to Shipshewana South campground for the remainer of the afternoon and night. My wife and I tested everything would could, trying to find anything that needed to be fixed before we left the area. The campground was very nice and the sites are level, the bath house very very clean. We ended up coming back for a second night. We went to the Shipshewana flea market on Wednesday for a few hours and had lunch at their resturant, another fine choice. The flea market is so big that one can not see it all in one day unless you are into running. Another great place to eat is the 5-20 resturant at the intersection of rt 5 and rt 20, just south of the campground. I had been to the RV musem before and can say that it also is very interesting, especialy on a rainy or hot day as it is all inside. We drove around Elkhart testing the ride and handling and stopping at Lowes and Wal-mart, about three miles west of the factory.

    The only thing we have been able to fine that needed fixing was the passengers side inside cover of the outside mirror had a broken clip and was rattling. We stopped by the factory Wednesday afternoon and Bobby replaced the cover and adjusted my outside mirrors for me.

    I think you will have an excellant expenerse picking up you new motorhome and should not worry to much about buying testers, as the folks at the factory do a wonderful job of checking everything before you get it.  ThumbsUp

Hello everyone,

    We are Tom and Jo Anne and we just got home yesterday with our new 2350. We live in central Maryland. We have two dogs, a 10 year old yellow lab named Bonnie and a 3 year old 124 lb German shepherd named Charlie. And you think your 2350 can get tight! This is sixth motorhome, a 26ft, 34ft, 28ft, 21ft, 35ft and now 23ft.

    I am retired from 34 years in main frame computers and 4 years selling RVs. My wife is still working as an adminstrater for a local college continuing education dept. Since I have extra time on my hands, I drove up to the factory before constuction began and again shortly after it began. I think I drove Stuart crazy asking so many questions and requesting so many little changes. Everyone seamed happy to make whatever changes I could come up with. What a great group of guys and gals working there. We finally picked up our PC on Tuesday right after lunch. What a long morning that was feeling like a little kid on Christmas morning and having to wait to get my present. We spent the night just a few miles away Shipshewana south. I tested everything I could and I could not find anything wrong. This is very unusal for any manufactures motorhome. Jo Anne was able to find that the inside cover over the mirror on the passengers door rattled. It turned out to be a broken clip, which Bobby replaced the whole cover the next day.

    We want to thank everone at the factory for all that they did for us to make this such a great experience.   We look forward to meeting some of you fellow PC owners.
