In place of RV antifreeze in the traps you can use windshield washer fluid. It is generally cheaper and you still get protection down to -20. If you are using RV antifreeze in the lines, you are already putting some in the traps. Just saying.

I thought that mold could grow any where it is damp not just in standing water. If there is standing water in the tank, can't the mold grow on the sides and top of the tank?

I put Clorox into the fresh water tank with some fresh water. I drive a short distance and return home. Then I turn on the water pump. I open the farthest valve from the tank and let it run until it turn clear. Both cold and hot. Then I do the other valves until they run clear. I let it sit for about one hour or so. I drain all the lines and the fresh water tank. I fill and drain the water tank a couple more times until I can't smell the Clorox. Then one more fill. Finally I pump fresh water though the lines until I don't smell anything at each valve. The last thing I do is open the water heater bypass, pump water into it and turn it on. I feel the hot water will kill any thing growing in the heater tank. Now I am ready to clean other things before having a cold one and saying "job well done".

The key used for most of the locks on the PC is the most common key in the RV industry. I for one prefer the lock on my spare tire to be a little less common, like it is now. Having said that most locks are easily picked by any good thief.  pulling hair out

I question putting to many heavy things in with the tire as that is the farthest place back from the axel. I prefer to put heavy items in the side compartment behind the batteries, in the middle of the coach.

This is just my way of doing things.

One thing to consider is the height of your PC when parked next to a big class A or fifth wheel. More than once I have been blocked from a signal by the big boys. With the crank up I have a fighting chance of getting as high as they are.

Congratulations on getting your new PC.

Last spring we went to South Datoka where the speed limit is 80 mph. Just to see what she would do, I pushed her up to 85 mph. No problem with the handling or ride. I was amazed by her. You might need an ailment or to rearrange your stuff to move weight from the rear to the front. I carry my tools in the overhead drivers cabinet instead of out back. It seems to help.

Yep, it works great. They made one for the short bed. We went with light green for the short and tan for the long. Makes it easier when making the beds to get the right one on each bed. We also got two pillow cases for each bed. Good company to deal with.

" Is there a pressure relief valve on the top of the hot water tank?  If so, try popping it and see if you get water or air.  You might have a hot water tank full of air that is vacuum locked for some reason.  Popping the relief valve with the system pressurized should release any air trapped there."

DO NOT DO THIS. The water heater needs some air in it to allow for water expansion when it is heated up.

Why would a jack knife sofa have wiring? Are you sure it is for the sofa and not for the overhead lights in the side out. If so maybe you can push the wires to the rear of the sofa and out of you way.

Where is your water pump? The kit should be by it, if Phoenix put it in the 2400.

Look under the passengers side bed. The little square hole lifts out. Look toward the rear. You should see a clear hose and next to the pump a valve. Turn the valve to make it suck through the hose. Put the hose into a bottle of RV antifreeze. Turn on the pump and open one facet at a time until you see pink. Be sure to bypass the water heater first. You will need two gal of antifreeze. Pretty simple, maybe not as easy as the new outside valve but still simple.

 I got the same kit and installed it in the bathroom fan, which Phoenix had installed a basic Fantastic  out only fan when I bought it. It was not that hard to replace the inside part with the new part. Mounting the rain senor required me to get on the roof if I rember correctly. If you have a problem, just call Fantistic and they are real nice about walking you through the install.

i believe that most RV dealers use the NADA RV guide.  What an individual uses is up to them.

If you do a scan on "full body paint" on here you will get tons of information on what we all think.
I use wash and wax on my PC and at 5 years old it still looks like new. There is a reason all the high dollar motorhome come with full body paint.

Where do you plan on camping? A private campground, a BLM or state parks, etc. Some of them have length limits. The 2552 or 2551 will fit in most any campground while the longer models will not.
