I added the Bilstein shocks and a rear anti-sway bar to our 2010 2350. I don't think the anti-sway bar was worth the money because it came with a larger bar the the older models did, but the shocks did help. Our 2012 2552 does not seem to need any upgrades except in a heavy wind or some trucks passing. I might be putting Bilstein shock on it because I like the extra control they give me. It will make the ride a little harsher, more sports car like ride. It is all a matter of taste.

    The earlier models of PC did not come with the 3" valve, just the Sani-con. My 2010 did come with a 3" opening with a cap mounted just after the pipe turns to the side to go to the Sani-con.  It was to allow one to get access to the drain pipes coming from the black and gray tanks. In 2011 there was some discussions on this forum about this opening. Shortly after that the pictures of the new PC showed a 3" emergence valve from the rear of the motorhome. My 2012 came with this opening with a valve to control the flow to the opening versa just the opening. Some of us like to use the Sani-con for one nighters and the 3" for longer stays. The 3" allows us to open the gray valve and leave it open. We then close it to collect some water, just before we need to dump the black tank. We open the black tank, drain and flush it, close the black tank. Then open the gray again to dump the water, thus flushing the hose with soapy water. It helps to keep the hose from stinking. Never and I repeat never leave the black tank valve open after dumping it and always put at least one bowl of water into the bank. If you don't follow this rule, you will end up with "THE CONE Cry" that will stop up the tube coming down from the toilet. Help It is a major job to remove this cone by using water and a long rod to break up the cone. At a dealer the new guy normally gets this job.  rolling on the floor

    Some campgrounds have the sewer pipe with  threads and some don't. You should be able to insert the end/cone of the hose into the sewer. You will see all kinds of ways to hold the hose in the pipes that are not threaded. LOL

Just by reading this forum, you can tell we all like them and that most of us have had one or more, some of us many many more motorhomes before our PC. Just be carefull, they can be like potato chips, hard to have just one.  rolling on the floor

Which layout fits you, only you and your better half can tell.

On our first PC the A/C went out after about a year. I took it to CW in winchester, Va. They called dometic because a tube leaked all the freon. Dometic sent a new unit to CW. No cost to me. Our current A/C is a penguin by duo-therm with the  digital wall control/night lite.

You might try calling Dometic and tell them what is going on. Phone calls are cheaper than A/C units.

Thanks Greg. I did check out CW and called Carol at PC. Carol wanted $180 plus shipping each. I would do the install. If I lived closer to the factory they could install them, ($?). CW wanted $951 for three installed. $225 each plus install.

We already have Amada's windshield covers and they are, as tony the tiger says "great". Much better at bocking the sun during the day and the outside lights at night. I have not used my old CW covers since I got these.

742  Main Forum / General Discussion / Window awnings on: September 17, 2012, 09:41:21 am
I am siting here in Myrtle Beach Travel Park, SC. surrounded by a lot of large white campers. The sun is shinning brightly. I have noticed that some of the class A motorhomes have window awnings on them. They have me wondering about putting window awnings on my PC. I am thinking that the livingroom and on both bedroom windows. I know the passengers side is under the main awning, but this would allow me to cover the window without having to put the main awning out. I have the standard windows, not the dual pane ones.

Has anyone put window awnings on their PC?
How well do they work?
Do they help keep the heat down?
Do they make it to dark inside?

Thanks for any input.

There are a couple of things that come to mind, 1. Check the swich by the side door to insure the house batteries are on. Note the light can be on while the batteries are off if you are plugged in. 2. Check the parking brake pedal for a wire comming from the HWH and make sure it did not get knocked off during the running boad light fix. 3. Make sure the parking brake is on, as the jacks only work when it is on.

When did The jacks stop working? Are any of the control box  light coming on?

I would check for a authurized HWH repair along your route before going 300 miles out of your way.

Glag that worked. Now you know the little secret.  Wink Keep it a secret and you can help the next guy that has running board light problems.

I think that the dash lights dimmer switch might control the running board lights. Try dimming the dash lights. The rotary switch on full bright would normally turn on the dome light, but it might be turning on the running board lights.

I had this same issue in both my PC2350 and my Winnebago before it. Like you said "no wall or stable area" to hook sliding drawer hardware too.  I could not find anything better around here. I checked all the major and minor hardware stores I know of. I did find at a Winne dealer a stronger rear bracket, still made of plastic, that seem to last a little longer. My guess is that Phoenix has not been able to find anything better either.

Jerry, I ended all the mail except the magazine from Good Sam by going into my profile on their web site and turning off just about every option of communications. I took about six months to stop getting all that junk mail. As for AARP I too dropped out but am still getting mail wanting me back. I wish I could stop that also. I keep thinking that my mother-in-law passed away in Dec 2009 and we still get junk mail addressed to her, even when we send letters to the companies telling them she died. Every now and then we get something for her from a new company we have never received anything from before. I guess once you are on a mailing list, and who isn't, you are on it for all eternity. shrug
