I had a 3 way back in the late 1990s in my Chinook. When I set it to "auto" it would select electric, then house batteries and finally LPG. Bill is this how yours works? I could select any one manually. If I wanted to dry camp or I parked for the day I would have to remember to set it manually so it would not run the house batteries down. Then when I plugged in, I would have to set it back onto auto in order to not burn LP all night. I preffer the much simpler 2 way refers. Set it to auto and forget about it. I don't seem to burn that much LP most of the year. It seems like The furnace eats more LP in one night than the refer does all summer.

Do you with 12V use it much?  I wondered if I missed out on something.

You only missed out on something, if you really needed it and after all these years my guess is you didn't need it.

I put those on my first PC, a 2010 2350. Only had that PC for about 10 months after the install. So I cannot say about long term but they worked well while I had them. The only issure I have with them is you still only get the reading in thirds. I have seen ads for a system that reads in percentages but it cost over $200. I a waiting to see how long I can go with the ones that came in there before I spent that much on tank readings. Grin

Yep, I measured them at 6" thick.

Ron, our beds have labels that read passengers side 32x73, drivers side 32x67. Both measure 6 inches high. Those measurements are not quite what Phoenix says the beds are. They are two inches narrower and one inch shorter.

My 2552 came with what they called memory form. My DW likes hers but I wanted just a little thicker, so I tried a 2" memory form topper. I did not care for it, so I got a standard form $29 egg topper and I like it.

Do any of the folks that you showed your PC to live close to you and can you go see their beds?

If you don't know what you are doing, you would be better off getting professional help, like at an RV dealer or Camping World. You would be dealing with both electric and LPG. Either can hurt you.

For question about your PC it would help if you filled out your profile. Knowing the year and model and if you have a slide helps with instructions.

That is the same mount I am currently using on my Garmin but I am not confortable using it for a 7" Garmin. Who knows, after I get the new one I may change my mind and use it.

Last Jan 2014 I went from Maryland to Jackson, Wy, up to Bozesman Mt and back to Baltimore and I never had to reset the Sirus/XM radio. It must be the type of radio you have.

    Thank you all for the information.
               ThankYou
    I have ordered a Garmin RV 760LMT from Garmin store and from "Ram Mounts" a cradle and a mount that screws onto the dash. Both should be here in about a week. I plan on mounting it just to the right of the center of the dash on the top. This way my wife can enter stuff while I am driving and I can still see it. A friend's wife keeps theirs on the far right of the windshield and I would never be able to see it way over there. On the far left she would not be able to enter any thing.

   I am not very happy about having to put drill holes in the top of the dash but I have had problems on hot days with suction cups and stick on mounts on smaller GPS  units. I will be holding it where I think it will go and having my wife do the same to make sure it is in the right place before drilling holes. If anyone has other ideas about how to mount it, please let me know.

    I will let you all know how it works when I get it.

By the way, you can buy a fifteen foot water pond hose at HD or Lowes and it is perfect for a macerator hose.  I replaced my original hose with one of them and used it for five more years.  They cost less than twenty bucks and if you have problems on the road, offer a quick and easy solution to replace the hose.  I carry a couple of 1" PVC flexible pipe connections with me, which allow me to cut and splice the macerator hose in case of a problem on a trip. 

Paul

Now that is a great idea about carrying the connectors.

It claims to be safe for all plumbing and septic systems. I have started using it to clean 35 year old pipes at home and it works.

A rotten egg smell would be an propane leak. You might want to check for leaks around the water heater or better yet have the whole system water tested for leaks. You would need a tool for water testing which most RV places and gas companies have. The test takes about half an hour.

To clean plumbing pipes use "Instant Flow" which can be found in hardware stores.
