lmichael,
    On the way home from picking up the PC at the factory, I stopped and had it weight at a truck scale. When I got home I looked on the Michelin site and found their chart on my tires. It said that I could put 15 lbs less than what the door label said. Since then I have run with the pressure at 5 lbs less than the door, ie 70 lbs in the front and 75 in the rear. I feel this helps with the steering while keeping the gas mileage from dropping. I have been told that soft tires help ride and steering/traction while hard increases gas mileage.

    Do you know what the differences are between the Hellwig bars and the Roadmaster? I know the Roadmaster cost a lot more. I had my 2350 built on the E-450 for the stronger suspension. After reading all that has been said on here about changing the anti-sway bars, while at Camping World one day I had them put the Roadmaster rear anti-sway bar on. It did seem to help a little. Now I don't know the trucks are passing me until they are by my door and wake me up. heehee. I am running out of things to change on the PC, so one of these days I guess I might put the upgraded front bar on. Wonder if I could get away with the cheaper bar?

Billy,
The front DVD player has the amp built into the DVD player, which is where you get the surround sound from. You control the volume on the DVD play. This is why you do not need the front TV on to get sound. On the rear DVD player, the sound comes from the TV only, so it must be on and set for the DVD player in order to get sound.

There are five surround speakers, for 2010 and earlier, the center one is hiding under the TV behind the trim work. You have to take the TV out to see it. In 2011 they mounted a new center speaker in the roof over the TV. The other four are small ones, two mounted in the wings and two back near the kitchen wall. In the 2350 the bedroom has two larger speakers but they are for the radio, not the TV.

no TV, no picture, no sound.

My surround sound works on whatever TV channels I can get on the Batwing antenna.  With the TV set to "external speakers" and the surround sound on "Aux 2" there is no sound from the TV, but only from the four surround sound speakers.  If I try to use the TV remote to change the volune I get the message "Not available."  I use the surround sound remote to change that volume for the TV in that setup. 

Hope this helps someone.

I went out and played with my setup and it works the same as Glenn describes. The only thing I noticed was that I don't have to set the tv to external speakers, just turn the volume all the way down. Thanks Glenn.  Cheers

Now if you know how to get my DW to crank down the antenna after she finishes watching TV and I have gone to bed.  rolling on the floor

Can you get Surround Sound using the batwing antenna?  shrug I am wondering if some of the problem with off the air signal is that very few shows are broadcast in surround sound and I am not sure that the antenna even can get them. Now if you have a satellite antenna you should be able to get a lot of surround sound. I can get it from a DVD so I know it works in the motorhome.

Don't you all think this topic has gone far enough. Lets end it here before someone gets upset. I think everyone has said their piece, so lets move on.

Going to Fredericksburg VA is about seven miles farther or about $3.00 in gas. The traffic between Richmond and Fredericksburg is very heavy most of the day. Rt 26 is long and boring. Which do you want the excitement of heavy traffic or long and boring?

" I suppose it is not good camper edicate."

You are right about that. sad

You may not use toilet paper but I will bet that the DW does, and that would be a mess to clean up. Cry

David, that picture was taken last Aug. on the way to Yellowstone. We spent two nights in Medora, ND so we could tour the town, go to the play and tour Teddy Roosevelt National Park - south unit. We had been there back in 2000 and wanted to stop again. The picture is in the park looking out over the bad lands. Very pretty place.
