I clicked on several of the topics and the "other" button. I do not understand how everyone could of missed the most important one, "CAMPING". This past weekend we went CAMPING with two other couples and had a great time. We parked the PC on Friday afternoon and it did not move until Sunday at checkout time. We sat a talked, cooked on the grill and played games and cards. Oh yea we also ate and ate. We plan on doing it again next weekend at a different campground. The campground is having a (from their web site) "Hawaiian Luau: Were roasting a pig ($); bring a covered dish/dessert. Party games, such as limbo, hula hoop, and more with DJ Randy! Best-dressed contest.". We plan on having another great weekend. Yes we do the beach thing, sightseeing, shopping and all that other stuff at different times, but still think that the most important is camping.

Sounds and looks like you had a great trip. Someday I hope to get that far west and see those great big trees for real. Thanks for the pictures.

My drain is also very slow, takes hours and hours to drain. What I do is to pump the water into the sinks with the gray water tank open. It is much faster but I don't like running the pump that long. Then again if the pump dies, I can get a new better pump and slove another issue.

There is an attachment for the end of the hose that is a smaller diameterer clear tube which is about six inches long. I only see them in the RV stores every now and then, so they are hard to find sometimes.  You insert this into the water fill and you can turn on the water full force. Just stand back because when the tanks fills up the water it will come gushing out pass the hose. If you are to close you are going to get wet.

I had my PC 2350 built on the E450 chassis and on the way home from the factory I got gas at a truck stop. I saw a CAT Scale and drove around to get it weighted. In the PC was myself, my wife, a 130 lbs German Shepherd, a 90 Lbs Labrador, a full tank of gas, full LPG, 3/4 water tank and clothes and supplies for a weeks outing. I had transfered my chairs, grill and other stuff from the old motorhome at the factory. The gross weight was 11760 lbs on a 14500 lb chassis, so I have 2740 lbs of CCC left over. I could say that I can carry all the beer and wine we might drink in a week with out any problems.  rolling on the floor

It's getting to be the first oil change. I KNOW, I KNOW I could RTFB but what say y'all on synthetic. Also has anyone used a bigger filter?

Your owners manual calls for synthetic oil. I used Mobil one this last time.

I have only tow once with the PC. I towed my wifes 2004 Jeep Liberty using the old set up from the previous motorhome. Big and very heavy Blue Ox tow bar, no supplemental brakes. I did get push a little when stopping.

David, Call Carol at the factory before you call Paul's seating. Carol can find out everything you need to know and can get what you want at a lower price. Ron when to Paul for his third captains chair. After his write up I wanted one also. I called Carol and ended up paying about $50 less because she got it a wholesale, not the Paul's retail price.

Like Ron said. I will do the same.

Hi David,
    We had to buy a new air mattress while on a trip because the originall one developed a hole and would not hold air. We went to Bed, Bath and Beyond, which had three different mattress. The good one ($100) looked like what we had, the better one ($200) had a pad on the top and the best one ($300) had the better pad on top. Both the better and the best ones had the motor off to one side. I felt the best one might be too thick, so we went with the better one. I ended up putting the motor at the foot of the bed and running the control wires and the electricc wire under the mattress up to the top. This allowed us to get to the quick deflate plug without laying on the bed. When we fold up the bed, we fold the leg over the mattress and then fold the bottom of the mattress over the leg bar before putting the sofa down. There is plenty of room for the motor behind the back of the sofa. If I had to do it again, I would look at the best mattress again as it might fit this way. Since my wife generallyy sleeps on the the air bed while I use the corner bed all I can say is that she thinks this mattress is far better than what came with the motorhome. I hope this is some help to you. ThumbsUp
Tom

Billy, I am wondering why you want or anyone would want two 6 volt batteries instead of the two 12 volt ones that come standard? Our old Winnebago 35' had two 12 volt batteries and I never needed for more. We went to a FMCA rally once, pulled in Sunday afternoon and did not start the engine until the next Saturday morning. We ran the generator each morning so we could run the coffee maker and some evening to run the microwave. Only watched TV for the news and weather reports. We never had any power issues. For all our other camping we have driven at least every other day or stayed in campgrounds with electric hookup. I can understand that some people might want more reserve if they dry camp for a long time with out using their generator or driving anywhere. I also can understand if you have that same affliction that I have, the Tim Allen affliction, Bigger and more power is better. What you have to say?

I am really glad to hear you had a great trip and returned safely. Now you need to go into more detail of what you did and saw at each of the stops. We all want to see some of your pictures. What was each persons favorite stop?
What would you recommend to someone planning a trip out west?

Just a quick followup; I went with nmc Coach Net for three years at $278.50. After reading the a bunch of RV sites I felt this would be the one for me. I got a $20 discount because I belong to FMCA.
Thank you all for the feed back. ThankYou
