Billy, the best thing you can do to improve ride, handling and the bouncing when sitting still is to have the Bilstein Heavy duty shocks put on your motorhome, IMHO. I got mine from The Ford shocks are not very strong.

The wingman comes on the new antennas as standard. Between the off the air and the cable at most campgrounds, I do not feel the need for sat. TV. My last motorhome had it and when I parked at a campground the most important thing was not to be under any trees or near anything that would block the sat. Now I don't worry about it, I  park where I want.

 Welcome Al B. Hope you enjoy your new PC and this forum. Both are great.  Yahoo!

In your profile there is a location field that gives all of us an idea where you are from. It would be nice if you entered it. It is kept as a general area or even just saying "on the road full timing".   Wink

It is a 7 way round plug on the rear.

Our shower drains just fine as long as I park with the drain side down or level.
The screen door is great. I wonder why all the motorhomes don't come with this sliding screen door.  ThumbsUp

Thank you Bob. I just went out to the motorhome and sure enough the LP detector is also for carbon monoxide. It is made by Atwood. I know I should have called Stuart, as he would have know about this. On my 2350 it is down by the floor on the side of the bed, in the corner between the bed and the bathroom door. Everything I have read about carbon monoxide detectors says that they should be mounted up high on the wall or on the ceiling.

    Yesterday I ordered a digital carbon monoxide model by Atwood. It should be here next week sometime as it is coming all the way across the country. I think I will go ahead and install it on the ceiling either up in front of the a/c or over the rear bed. The digital display tells you how much carbon monoxide is present rather than waiting for it to accumulate until it sets off the alarm. I probably will not check it like I should but it will still sound the alarm when needed. It is nice to know I can use it both ways.

Again thank you for your help.

Ron, I am holding my breath for part 2. No pressure.

My front seats did not come with a lumbar support system. Is the lumbar support something you added for this seat or do your front seats also have it?

You do know you are getting me in trouble with my wife. "How much can you add to this motorhome?" she said.    rolling on the floor

Merry Christmas to one and all.

While waiting for the big Christmas dinner I was watching RVTV. They were talking about carbon monoxide detectors. I did not recall seeing one in my PC2350. I went out to the motorhome and can not find one. I am wondering why PC did not install one and if maybe my motorhome was just missed. Do you have a carbon monoxide detector in your motorhome? Was it installed by PC or you? Does anyone have a recomendation on which band/model is best? I understand it should be made for RVs.

Like I said "works sometimes". Sometimes it don't. Just hope you never have to do it for real, which is most likley the case.

Hey Tom - I guess what I meant to say is "What if one or both valves fail?"  not the pump itself.

Bob has the correct procedure for winterizing the values, just be sure you use RV anti-freeze and not windshield washer or automotive anti-freeze. They are different and can do damage to the seals. If your values will not open with the electric button, first check to make sure the house batteries are turned on (the switch by the side door) and charged. You can try sliding under the rear and manully put the valves open, works sometimes. If they are frozen, use a hair dryer on them, also works sometimes.

Alright you guys had me outside in this nice warm 25 degree weather   looking at my Ford radio. As you all know I have the 2010 E450 PC 2350. It does not have Sirius option on it. Only has CD/AM/FM1/FM2 options. DJM (wonder if you have a first name) must have gotten a special model for a special person. I didn't.
I wish it had Sirius as my wife and I both have it in our jeeps. She has been asking about getting it for the PC. The snap sounds interesting. Tomorrow I will have to call Sirius and ask about the cost of adding it to our subscription. It may show up under the Christmas tree.

Billy wants to know how we feel about "Insulated Glass,  Mirror w/Compass & Outside Temp,  Back Up Monitor,  Automatic Satellite Dish".
    For me with only two large windows and two small windows the cost was not worth what I would benfit by having them. The cab windows are not insulated and they let most of the cold/heat in anyway. My old Winne had them and after about 5 to 6 years the seal broke on several allowing them to fog up.
    The Mirror w/compass and Outside temp, my Garimin and my wife both tell me where to go, so no need for a addional compass. If I want to know the temp, I open a window. The cost of this option put three tanks of gas in the motorhome.
    Back up Monitor is a must have as it is the only way to see directly behind you when backing into a campsite or parking space. Also needed to see the towed car, if you plan on towing. Mine is always on.
    The Satellite dish is optional. I had one on the last motorhome and felt I watched to much TV instead of being out doors. The dish was to big to fit well on the 2350, so I did not get it. Winegard now has a smaller dish available. Who knows, I may change my mine someday, but for now the cable at the campgrounds are doing the trick. You will still need to get the local channels for a cable or off the air.
 Have a nice day.

Michael, we clip a clothes pin to the handle of the crankup. When ever we crank it up, we put the clothes pin on the gear shift. I have yet (I was going to say never but) driven off with the antenna up.

Just like Ron's, mine has the cable hookup next to the water and electric hook up and a Winegard batwing on the roof. The current batwings come with the wingman as part of it. I had the option of getting a rather huge sat. dome on my little 2350. I did not like the look of it and the way it stuck out over the cab section. On my last motorhome I had a sat. dome installed and it worked most of the time except when I parked under the trees and during heavy rains. The motorhome also had the batwing which was good for getting the local channels with the news and weather that I could not get from the sat.

When I got my wingman I spent an afternoon vewing each channel and making a list with how good the picture was both before and after installing the wingman. I live in the country with some pretty bad recption, so it was easy to see the improvement of the digital signal. I even picked up three channels that I still do not know where they came from. They had foregin news on them so they could of been from a local private station in Washington DC.

I now see a smaller sat. dome at Camping World, but I kind of like not having so much TV while I should be outside camping and enjoying the world.   Grin So i don't know if I will get one or not.

May I ask why you want to know?

Ron, the rubber feet on the antenna pop off and this new part fits underneath the base, the new screws pop in the old holes. Takes about 5 minutes. It might even stop you rattling.
