The first thing I would change is to go with the E450. Then I would replace the bathroom fan with a Fantastic fan and cover both fans. I like the ladder but not the roof rack. My 2350 I passed on the rear window, the coffee pot and the mirror on the bathroom door. We made several other minor changes also.

If I only lived two and a half hours from the factory, I would run down there and see what is being built and what changes you like. I drove for 10 hours each way to see my two being built and requested changes to both of them. There is nothing like seeing them to help chose what to change.

Welcome to a great company and a good bunch on the forum that all want to help.

Welcome David.

If you guys are going to add super springs to the E-350 after you get your new PC, why not consider up grading to the E-450 before the build. You would get the heavier suspension plus the added payload. The wheel base remains the same for both models, so turning and parking are the same. The E-450 rear wheels are one inch wider for a better ride. I did this back in 2010 when I ordered my first PC, a 2350. Then I replaced the shocks with Bilstein HD Shocks and was all set to go. Just something to think about.

Hi Fellows,

I looked on the 5 Star Tune website.  It appears to be an engine computer programing change.  Does it also affect the transmission computer?

That website had me a bit confused as to what you had done, what it cost, and where to get it done.

I still feel the same as Ron.
Looking at 10.8 vs 10.0 miles is not much of an improvement for me to want to do it just for the gas milage. Back in 2002 I owned a Chinook on a Ford F-350 and had the Banks full systems installed. he too promised an improvement in MPG and performance. The performance was there but the MPG was not much of improvement . Some of it was I had a heavier foot after the install.  Grin

Going up hill will not be the problem. You may end up going up slowly, so don't rush it. The truck do this all the time.
The problem in the mountains is going down hill. Use your tow-haul and down shift. If you must brake, hit them hard and slow down below the speed you want to be going. Then let off them so they can cool down.Do NOT ride the brakes, as they will over heat and can catch fire.

If you do this on I70 you will not have any problems. Enjoy the senery and the Eisenhower  tunnel.

You gals must remember that us guys have been in trainning for many years, myself I have been married for 45 years. So having a women's GPS voice telling us what to do can be kind of comforting. I tried switching to the male voice but it was not the same.

Yes I too look up our route before hand on google earth. It is nice to pick out places to see along the way, if we happen by there. Don't tell my wife because she thinks I have this wonderful ability to find these interesting places by magic.  Grin

We just use the GPS and enjoy the adventure. It does take us a different way sometimes, but that is the fun of exploring new places.

I am glad to hear everything is working now and that you reported back here with what it took to fix the problem.

I have used the valve extenders for about 20 years and only one time did one of the rear ones come lose. It let the air out of the tire. I caught it while gassing up so no damage was done. The motorhome had less than 1000 miles on it so I think that they had not been tighten during the install. Whenever I stop I always do a walk around looking over the motorhome and knocking on the tires. When ever I have the wheels off I ask that the extenders be checked.
I have never had tire monitoring system on a motorhome but my wife's Jeep Liberty has it. One time I ran over a road gator and it hit the valve stem and broke it off. The tire was gone before some one flagged me over. If I was to get a system for the motorhome it would have to include the toad also.

  I was wishing and hoping to find some "hidden space".  I guess one of those swing out StowAways might be something for me to look into.   ThankYou


Watch which way it swings. It may block the PC rear compartment and/or the ladder.

1 remove the cover by turning the two knobs 1/4 turn counter clockwise. Left cover and slide it to the right about half way.
2. look for the start switch that you just uncovered.
3 on the right side of the switch you will see another switch/breaker. flip it.

Now test your generator again.

Did everything work on electric?

With the generator running try to run the microwave. If it does not run then you are not getting output from the generator. Remove the generator cover (outside) and look for a circuit breaker. It could be tripped. Then try the microwave again.
 If possible plug into 30 amp and try it again.

Check the water level in your batteries.

I remember all those who gave their all.

I remember all those who were wounded.

I remember all those who struggle from their wounds.

I thank all the spouses and the dependents of those who serve.

I salute my fellow veterans and thank all that served.
