OK I found the load charts on the Michelin web site and looked up what they say for my weight divided by 2 to get each tire. Based on that I should put 65 PSI in both front and rear. I then called Michelin and talked to them. They want each wheel weighted by it self because there could be a big difference between each side based on the layout of the motorhome. So they say to put what ever the door sticker says in each tire. My door sticker for both Ford and Phoenix says 75 front and 80 rear.

Was on a four day trip this past weekend and on the way out I stopped at a truck stop that had a Cat scale. So I got the PC weighted. I had 3/4 tank of fresh water, and LPG, both black and gray tanks were empty, Myself at 240 lbs, my wife, she would say her weight but she is 5'7'' and just slightly over weight and our 120 lb German Shepherd dog in the motorhome while being weighted.

The results are:
              Door sticker       Cat scale      difference
Steer axle    5000                4640            360
Drive axle    9600                 8140          1460
Gross        14,500              12,780         1720

How I need to call Michelin and find out what PSI to set the tires at. My guess is what it says on the door sticker.
Just thought some of you might like to know.

    I turn on the control panel and look for the yellow lights, which tells me what is low. I hit the up arrow on the opposite side until I feel the jacks come down, then I let go of the arrow. I then push and hold the up arrow by the yellow light until the light goes out. Then I get out and make sure all the jacks are down. I hit the up arrow for any of the jacks not on the ground. The reason I hit the up arrow opposite the lights first is that in the past I have raised the front so high that the rear jacks would hit the ground before they are vertical. This way they are vertical before I raise the front, or what ever I am doing.

David, I just went out to the  PC and what you are trying to do is exactly what I did and mine worked correctly. I have to agree with there must be a set of wires switched. Try each option and see what happens. Then call the factory on Monday. I don't think that the lack of LPG would cause it to switch to the A/C heat strip, but I could be wrong.

ruff dimensions
    When I had a 2350 I could lay my chairs down on the shelf, now with the twin beds I can not. My chairs when folded are 18" x 18", so I figure the cabinet was 18" deep on the shelf. The opening is 35" wide and from the top of the shelf to the top of the opening is 14". There is a couple of inches above that if I recall.
   The drawer is 14" high and 34 1/2" wide and 21" deep (front to back). From the bottom of the drawer to the top of the opening is 29 1/2" high.

    These are ruff dimensions based on my failing memory and my 2552. The big difference should be because of the full bed in the 2350 and the twins in the 2552.
Hope this is of some help to you.

That is about what I paid for the mirrors on my 2010 2350 PC with the short arms, no turn signals. I got them throught Phoenix's Carol, who also had them painted and shipped to me.

Bob that is a really cool mod. Between your mod and Billys rear light the only thing left would be LED daytime running lights. My new 2012 has side lights under the outside mirrors so I can only do two of the three.

Why not have the factory do it? They can use the same flooring as the rest of the PC. Just need to call them and ask.

Hi Paul and Marilyn,

    It looks like you made some great choices. The outside shades that Armada sells are great. We never use our old white covers since we got her shades. The Duo shades are also a great improvement over the day/night shade and the v-blinds.

    Looking at the pictures of the current 2100, they show small door where Ron is talking about having one put, I guess it is what he is talking about.

    One thing I have seen in the pass on other companies 21 ft motorhomes that you might want to consider is a folding floor over the entrance step. The floor folds up against the refer wall when not being used and down in the step well when cooking. A short rope tied to the side by the stove and draped over a hook on the cabinet allows you to pull the step up after use. A latch on the refer wall would hold the floor in place when traveling. Just something I have seen in the pass and thought it would help when cooking and not falling out the door.  Grin

    We are on our second PC and know how hard it is to wait for that phone call from Stuart telling you it is ready, but that day will come. On both of our PCs I went back to the factory during construction to see it, and ended up making some minor changes. Besides it is fun to see it being built and taking pictures to show our family and friends. It won't be long before you are changing your profile to "Own PC: YES". ThumbsUp

Thanks Ron, I do leave it plugged in most of the time and unplug for running the generator. Now I guess I will need to turn on the inverter once a month also.

I run my generator at least once a month. Wouldn't that take care of the switch also?

I didn't know we all had 4x4 RVs as that report makes it sound. I did not know you could get the 4x4 on the E450 either, just the E350. Dummy me. Cry

Hi Roni,

    Last fall we were at Roamers retreat just east of Lancaster and had to go to the factory to pick up our new 2552. We took rt 30 west to 283 toward Harrisburg. Then we picked up 22/322 toward State Collage and I80 west. This is a nice troll free ride and a lot better than the PA turnpike. It took me about 10 hours with stops for lunch and breaks. Took that to Elby's Pines RV park in Bristol, In. Watch for the very small sign on the left side of the road. Nice little campground about 30 minutes from the factory and no problems with the water. Some of the sites near the top are level while others are not so level. They were working on improving the campground.

    We stopped at one of the Ohio turnpike rest stops and saw the camping area. It was a blacktop parking lot complete with white lines, just as you are coming into the rest stop on the truck drive with w&e and a dump station. Nothing to stop the traffic noise from the trucks or the turnpike. If you are a lite sleeper, this would not be for you or me.

    I hope you get this before you leave Lancaster.
