Hi Ron,

I understand what the fellow told you about the water in the tank saving the element, but you having to replace your element after only a couple of years says something also. I only know that the shop at the dealer where I worked got in several heaters per year from those that ran the electric with the tank empty. They told me never to do that and I have never had to replace a heating element. I guess we got two different story to sort through. Maybe someone else can clear this up for us.  pulling hair out

Here is a picture I took at the factory of a 2350 under construction. You can see that the fresh water tank is almost as high as the bed frame and the filler tube is at the maximum high it can be and still stay under the bed frame. This is not poor workmanship as suggested in an earlier post, just the way it has to be if they wanted to put the tank under the bed and out of the way.

Hi Echo11,

    It is really good to see someone follow up with the results to their problems. Thank you. ThankYou

    As for the fill tube, There is only so much room under the bed for the tank and the tube. The tube is placed as high up on the wall as the bed will allow and since the tank's top is almost as high you get the almost level fill tube. The water fill device will help, trust me.

    If you open both the cold and hot water drains and pump the water out, you will end up draining the water heater also. Please make sure the electric water heater switch (in front of the kitchen sink) is in the off position. If you run the electric water heater without water in the tank, you will burn out the heating element faster than you can read this post. In my case I only drain the water at the end of the season or if I think I got some bad water in the tank from a campground. I live in the country and we have a well with an electric water pump. When the electricity goes out we don't have water for toilets, showers or cooking, so we rely on the PC as our backup. Therefore I like to keep the fresh water tank, gas tank (for the generator) and LPG tank at or near full and the gray tank at or near empty. I always dump the black tank before coming home and put just about two toilet bowls full of water in the bottom of the tank to keep it clean.

Again thanks for reporting back.

Call Carol at the factory. She can look up what was put in your PC. She might know how to fix it or what is needed to fix your camera or monitor. If it needs replacing she might be able to help with that also. She has always been very helpful.  ThumbsUp

I stopped here today to talk to George, the owner, about a steering stabilizer for my E-450. He told me that they had just done major handling modifications to a Phoenix Cruise and the owner was very happy with the new handling. I am wondering who that owner is and if they would get in touch with me.

GL1500 that is what I was trying to explain in my earlier post. I could not find it on the Camping World site then but due to your post I found it.

It does help when filling the tank.

Thanks

It only takes a weekend to recharge sometimes. Last weekend was only an hour away in Gettysburg, Pa and next weekend is only one and half hours from home at Western Village RV resort in Carlisle, Pa. We do some fast hard traveling at times but still love to take a weekend to just camp.

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
