Hey Sparky,

    First let me say you did a nice job on both the toilet and the microwave and posting your modifcations. One question I have is from the toilet write up, you talked about all the sweat and wiping it up. In the microwave write up you state you have 30 amp on the house. So why didn't you have the a/c on druing the installs? cool

    Another small point I have is that you don't need to double post your write up as the main page shows us what post are new, making it hard to miss you posts. When on a slow campground wifi the less post the better. just a small point. Smile

Looks like you saved $11 over ordering from the manufacture.  ThumbsUp

Make sure you mount them at the floor line using 1" screws into the floor.

I believe that the link is from Ron, not me. He gets the credit for it.

Double dang.  I hope this is the worse thing that breaks on you.
You do have four spares now. LOL
771  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Re: To tow or not to tow. That is the question. on: July 20, 2013, 10:21:42 am
Some times yes, some times no. It all depends on where we are going and if we might need it for side trips. When on longer western trips we don't tow but sometimes will rent a car for a day or two. If we (read DW) wants to go shopping while we are staying at a campgroung for a few days, then I will tow. Also good for taking her out to dinner without having to break camp.

When towing remeber that not only will your gas milage go down a little, but any tolls will be much higher. Some turnpikes count it as four axles, which is higher than a motorhome and a seperate car.

I doubt I have been of much help with this reply because it all depends on when and where we are going. If it was me, I would buy the tow bar and brake, get it all set up, then you have the option to tow or not in the future.

I carry a 50 to 30 amp converter plug for just such times. I am guessing the state park did not have 50 amp on the post.

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.
776  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Air mattress instructions? on: July 06, 2013, 09:57:56 am
Our 2010 2350 had a sofa/bed made by Paul's seating. 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.
