You should think about the availability of parts for repairs on a ten or more year old unit. Not only the truck parks, but all the house parts like a/c, refer, electrical and body parts as well. Depending where you live, big city or small town can make a diffeence in getting parts. Also when and where you travel to. Problems have a way of happening in the worse places.

It will be at Cherry Hill RV Resort in College Park, Maryland. It is just out side the Washington, DC beltway on the north side.

Hi chevyboy, welcome to our gang.

For the next week, everytime you go some where, think about taking a motorhome and finding where you would park.  You might find that a lot of parking lots have small spaces and lots of island to drive around.
Think about not only the length but the  width and height. The 2400 is 2 feet longer than a crew cab with a long bed pickup. It will be wider and higher than a pickup. You can not take it thru a drive up window or into a lot of parking lots. If you are touring national park, think about all the other cars taking the parking spaces, even the RV/bus spaces. Think about touring and tunnels. some older tunnels like the Needles hwy in SD are low tunnels that even at 10' 2" becomes a problem.

Also when you leave your campsite you run the risk of someone taking it. I have had that happen in both state park campgrounds and private campgrounds where the site are assigned.

I agree with everything said above about breaking camp being a pain.

On our first PC 2350 we had the same problem. I took it to a Ford dealer for service and asked them to check out. They found that the fuse had not been installed. They showed me my manual listing the fuses. I read down the list until I got to the lighter. I needed to read on down the list to near the bottom to find the aux. fuse.

Another option that I use is to carry a battery charger and a 25 foot extention cord. When I Want to charge the battery, I plug into the outside plug by the door. If the coach is not plugged into 120v, I just start the generator.

Keelhualer you might want to reread the recall notice I refered to above. It states tires made between Jan 2010 to Jun 2012. If her PC was made late 2010 it could have tires made earlier that year and be covered.

Mostly your PC can with the Michelin LTX M/S tires. They are light truck tires and come with a six year warranty.

There was a recall on some of these tires, so have your tire guy check them to see if they were included in the recall. If so Michelin will replace them for "free", yes "free" with the newer LTX M/S 2 tires. This includes mounting and balancing. Michelin replaced all seven, including the spare, tires on my PC and it did not cost me anything.

Don't be confused by the talk the class A guys and gals have about their tires as they are made for RVs and have a different rubber compound to make them last longer while sitting.

Holly, that is funny. We debated between the cafe and the sunlite but went with the darker color. I sure wished we had picked the lighter color last July while parked in the campground on the beach in full southern sun.  Embarrassed

The only down side to a color, either inside or outside, is if you did not get the one your better half wanted.

I had to replace mine because the old camera got water in it. My bad, don't ask how I did it. The one thing I learned from Carol at the factory was that the cables on the different model are different also. That meant that if I wanted a different camera, I would have to run a new cable from the back to the front of the coach. I don't think this would be an easy job with the roof already on.

I put the HD Bilstein on my 2552. I chose the HD because I wanted more control. At first the rode hard but after 10K miles they are a little softer. If you want the smoother ride go with the confort model. Forget the over priced Koni shocks that Ron is always pushing.

David I had the same problem with my A/C unit. A line broke and the coolant leaked out. No stain on the roof that I saw but the server guy at Camping World found it. He called Dometic and they sent a whole new roof unit under wanrrenty. You might want to check with them before trying to repair it yourself.

I hope everyone is having a Merry Christmas. Cheers

Think about the load ratings you might want. I got our first PC, a 2350 on the E450 and only needed/wanted to change the shocks to Bilstein shocks. I never had to worry about how much stuff my wife packed.  LOL
