On both our 2010 and our 2012 PC when you open either the drivers door or the passengers door all the running lights come on and stay on for about 30 seconds. This includes the turn signal/brake, the upper front and rear and the lower side running lights. Depending on how often you use the cab doors when parked, it could run down the engine battery.

I would wait until the factory gets back from vacation on Monday and call Carol. Or you could try Camping World for parts.

You might want to think about upgrading to the E450 chasis. I did that on my 2350. It has a higher rear load rating.

Our 2010 2350 had a sofa/bed made by Paul's seating. http://www.paulsseating.com/ To store the bed we just pushed the control box down in between the bed and the wall in the little square hole. It did not fit very good but we did the best we could. Then we folded the sides of the the air mattress in about six inches so they would not pinch in the sofa fame. Then we just closed the sofa. The air mattress that came with the sofa was a piece of junk and only lasted about a year with only using it a couple of times to try it out. We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond and bought a better mattress but it still was not very good for sleeping on.

If you need parts for the sofa or mattress, call Carol at the factory and she will get it for you a lot cheaper than if you can Paul's seating direct.

If you plan on using it a lot, you might want to think about changing out the sofa for one of the newer sofas, but you will lose the drawer under the sofa.

Yes, turn on the sound sound (DVD) player, go into the menu and change the input setting to ??? Until the sound comes out the five speakers. I think it is set to aux, but not sure.

We have also stayed at the Shipshewana South Campground.  Very nice!  The Amish bulk food store is called E&S and it does have some great bargains.  If you are looking for "HIGH QUALITY" meat try Yoders Market down the block from E&S (right if front of the Flea Market).  The meat is all ready frozen but it is like meat from the "olden days".  Everytime we are in the area I fill up the PC freezer with meat and we eat good for a few weeks after that.

Thanks for all lthe tips.  I live in Amish country and enjoy the amish markets and they are great. Good food so I am very familar with their goods. 

We go up to Lancaster two or three times a year to stock up on the food stuff and fill our bellys. We stay at Flory's campground in Ronks. We really enjoyed staying in Shipshewanna south campground for the same reasons. The resturtant at the corner of Rt5 and Rt20 has some great Amish cooking also.
We stopped at Frankenmouth one year and it was fun except for all the time my DW spent in the Christmas store. Way to much for me. Food as also great.

We have been running the coach air while driving for many years now. I have seen arguments about which is more fuel efficient, running the dash air or the coach air. When I had a 35' class A, on really hot days, I would run both at the same time.

Really a nice job Berry.
I was wondering why you chose to raise the door over dropping it. It seems like it would be easier to see into the cabinet if the door dropped. I am guessing it has something to do with the hinges and mounting them.
Either way it is a nice addition that I think Phoenix should make a standard. ThumbsUp

Leaking roof A/C means there is a lot of moisture in the air and it has frozen up. Just turn it off and let it sit for a few minutes. Running the fan can help defrost the out side coils. If it is dripping inside, then you need to remove the inside cover and tighten the four bolts about 1/2 turn each. Do not over tighten the bolts as this will cause the seal to get to tight.

As for the refrigerator, just keep the door closed as much as possible and it will dry out by itself. A box of baking soda inside the refrigerator will help prevent this condition and will help dry it out now.

neither my 2010/2350 or my 2012/2552 Sony camera backup system offered sound.

I had this problem from water entering from the top cable. I used a hair dryer to try to remove the water. Don't do this. I now have a blury picture. I had to remove the camera and bracket from the PC in order to take the four little screws out. My PC is full body paint including inside the screws to rotate the camera, so I could not get to the two back screws. After I removed the four little screws, I found a rubber gasket. With care I was able to remove the lens part, only to find a couple of wires going to it. I was able to wipe down the insides and reassamble everything. I still have a blury picture, so I must have hurt the plastic lens with the hair dryer. I would suggest calling Carol at the factory and talking to her. I wish I had.

Sue,
I went by the RV dealer I used to work at yesterday. They were already sold out of the stuff. I asked the owner about it and he told me he had never used it but that Thetford makes good products and I might want to try it. My only concern is, if I understand you,  you pour it in and let it sit. I seems like it would work on the top of the top seal, but I don't understand how it works on the bottom or inside the groove of the seal. When I have sprayed in the past I always open the valve and sprayed all over the seal. I do appreciate your input and I bet you a dollar I will end up trying it after my next stop at Camping World. Wink
