We waited until we got down near Wheeling, WV at a campground before putting water into the fresh tank. Ran a few test to test the pump and then hooked up to city water. By morning the fresh water tank was empty. The factory had left the drain valve open on the tank. So I knew that worked also. LOL

The RV hall of fame is just about two miles from the factory if you want to visit it.

Mike, I would strongly recommend that you spend the first night after picking up your new baby at Eby's. I spent four years working at an RV dealer selling RV and helping to check them in when they arrived at the dealer from the manufacture. When I picked up my current PC, I spent two hours going over it checking every little thing. We did not put water in it because the water in Elkhart is so bad and full of iron. When we were ready to leave the weather had turned bad, heavy rain and even thunder storms, so we decided to head south out of the rain. We ended up driving through the worst storms Indiana had seen in years down to Indianapolis, some 170 miles. By the time we got to a campground it was dark and raining pretty hard. I parked in the site and reached down to put the jacks down. Oh boy, you should have hear me talking to my self, like a drunken sailor. NO JACKS. How could I have missed that? I called Stuart and left a message for him. In the morning I called Carol at the factory and she arranged to have jacks installed as soon as I could get back there, a three hour drive. It turns of that at least five people missed the jacks on the check off list and I missed it on delivery. Everyone was very sorry for the mistake and even paid for my gas and troubles. When we picked up our first PC, we did stay locally and only found one small thing wrong. A quick swing by the factory the next day had it fixed in five minutes.  I should have spend the first night near the factory like I have recommended in the past. I laugh at this now but it wasn't so funny then.

I would recommend that you try to pickup the new PC on Monday through Thursday and leave Friday for a return to get anything fixed. Most likely you will not need to return to the factory but it is better safe than sorry. I bet that Stuart will not like me staying this here but it is how I feel.

Has anyone tried to wash the bedspread that came as an option on the PC? We have called the factory and the manufacture of the bedspread and no one is sure if we can wash it or it needs to be dry cleaned. They all say that dry cleaning would be safer but...  Carol has been trying to find out for me but she is real busy right now. We do have one of the new fancy Samsung front load washing machines with a few hundred option on it. Help

Eby's Pines Campground is about 15 minutes east of the factory and they are open all year. In the winter they do turn off the water. The water in Elkhart is very very bad as it contains lots of iron.

Before you go tearing everything apart, you might want to call the factory and talk to them about which cables do what. To me it looks like you have the roof antenna and the cable going into the back of the wall plate before coming out the front and going to the TV. There is a cable going from the DVD player to the TV. There is a three wire cable (red, white and Yellow) going from the TV to the box then to the DVD player. I have no idea what the yellow is used for but I think the red and white are going into the DVD/amp to give you the surround sound. I found this by looking into the cabinet and not by taking the TV down. Call me lazy if you want, but I would rather ask before leaping. Grin

A call to the factory can tell you what you need to know and they are always ready, willing and able to help us owners. ThumbsUp

Look in the cabinets with the glass door. You should see two or three screws on the side by the TV. Remove these screws and the TV will fall out, so be careful.

George,

IMHO you can leave your batteries in the motorhome and just use the switch by the door to disconnect the batteries and turning off the inverter behind the drivers seat. No cables to mess with and you don't have to stand out in the cold hooking and unhooking batteries. The most definitive answer to this issue would come from someone calling Kermit at the factory.

Ron, I think it can be your blanket statements sometimes can cause a problem. A lot of people on here see your name and think that everything you say applys to them. You and I both know it does sometimes and not other times. Things like "bring your batteries in" only apply if you are in long term storage without running your engine or generator. I have had a seven different motorhomes here in Maryland since 1984, where it can go down to zero at night, and have never taken a battery out of a motorhome yet. I disagree with you about not running the engine. I spent four years working at an RV dealership and we ran all the motorhomes at least every two weeks for about 15 minutes or until they warmed up. During this time you are charging up the batteries. You would be surprised at the amount of water that comes out of the tail pipe after sitting for a few days. Water means rust in the exhaust and the engine. Every generator manufacture recommends running the generator at least once a month for up to one hour. Going to the motorhome once a month or every other week and running or driving it for 20 - 30 miles is not asking to much to keep it in good shape. I bet if you go to your motorhome and start it, you will get water out of the tail pipe. What works for you may not be right for everyone just the same as what I say is not right for everyone. I would not and am not recommend driving it in the winter on salty roads without washing the salt off of it.

I understand that we all have our opinions and we need to make sure that whoever reads this forum understands that and that they need to think about what should apply to them. I hope you take this in a friendly manner and not that I mean any harm to you. Your input has and will continue to be usefull to a lot of people and to me also.

cordylm If you think that Stuart and Kermit are great and they are, wait until you talk to Carol and Bobby and Doug and everyone else in the factory. If you need a part or information about getting a special thing, call Carol, she is great to work with.

Why do you remove the house battery? You leave the engine battery in and remove the house battery? I have been to West Yellowstone, Mt where it went below minus 30 degrees and never had any problems with a battery. Do you think the everyone that lives in that kind of cold brings there batteries in at night? Yes you can read on the internet to remove the batteries but this is a case of you have to think for yourself. Don't believe everything you read on the internet. Ron is one of the guys telling you to bring them in, yet he keeps his motorhome in a heated garage. I bet in the winter when he goes to work and parks outside he leaves the battery in his car.

Read the stuff here and make up your own mind as to what applys to you.

very nicely done.  ThumbsUp

I took my mod off the old PC and returned it to factory specs before trading it in. The first change I made to the new PC was to put the mod on it. One night on the road trying to get all the water out of the hose was enough for me. Grin

There is a 4" high by 12" long by 1" thick backer board behind where the hooks are installed. I was just at the factory and asked this same question because I added a hook on my old PC. I did not hit anything with that hook. Bobby and I went looking at how the rear end cap is make and mounted. I want to put a hook in the new PC but have not figured out how just yet.

Welcome Cordylm,

You will love the PC. We will be at the factory on Monday morning 11/14/11 to trade in our 2350 for a new 2552. Maybe we will see each other. I notice we come from neighboring states.

we have a park model trailer we are not in but want to keep the place at a reasonable temp. been looking at infrared heaters, they say the use little electric. any one use something like this?

Infrared heaters only heat you not the air. If you are looking to keep things, like water, from freezing, they do not work. We use a small cube heater set on the lowest setting to keep the pipes from freezing. It doesn't seem to add much to the electric bill that I can tell.
