It runs just as fast as the motorhome, at least it is always there when I get where I am going.  rolling on the floor rolling on the floor Cry rolling on the floor

Seriously, it runs at a fast speed all the time. The only difference I can tell is that the sound changes to a deeper sound as the load increases.

Given that this is a long weekend, I thought I would start this topic asking where everyone is going this weekend and if they plan on camping or visiting friends and family. Anyone staying home due to the gas prices?

My wife, two dogs and I are headed to Flory's campground in Ronks, Pa. It is just east of Lancaster in the tourist area. Lots of shopping and touring the Amish areas. Also near by Strasbourg has a tourist railroad, a railroad museum and a toy railroad museum. The food that the Amish prepare will have us losing our belts before the weekend is out.

So what are you doing?

Take a few minutes to remember our troops where ever they are serving and those who gave their all so we can have this weekend and life style.  Cheers

On my 2010, if the inverter is on, the TV and the DVD player are in the stand by mode, the red lights are on, regardless if the battery disconnect is on or off. If the battery disconnect is off and I turn off the inverter, the red lights will go out, very very slowly.

The step is connected to the engine battery, not the house battery. This is for safety reasons. You always want the step to come out, otherwise you have one great big step down to the ground. That could hurt.

Ron, that is the same type of bed in the current PC only the sofa is much better built. Did you notice the big gap between the seat and the back when he opened the bed? That is not there with our bed.

It was address by a girl and sent to Tom & Jo Anne Hanlon at our home address. There was no reference to us in the letter other than saying they wanted our PC in trade. My email address was not to be seen. It was post marked in South Bend, In. Stuart already has a copy of the letter. My guess is that they looked on here at our signature and my name and looked us up in a phone book for Maryland.
Thanks for your concern about our email address.

    Today I got a letter from a new company that is starting up in Elkhart called NeXus RVS. They wanted to me to trade in my PC on one of their new units. I googled them and watched their videos. It was amusing watching the ex-salesman, now company president Claude Donati describing their motorhome and how they plan on doing business. It looks like they used Phoenix as a business model on how they will build and sell their motorhomes. They are located two blocks north of the Phoenix factory on the same road. Their units have little of the aerodynamics in the front and where the cab meets the box is a real wind catcher and the flat side walls should make it hard to handle in the wind. Mr Donati went to great lengths to talk about the stronger steel side walls but did not explain how they plan to keep the steel from rusting and staining the walls. Wait until you see their new sofa that they have, and how it turns into a bed.  rolling on the floor  While watching the videos, I kept thinking I was really glad that I have a PC.

    I wonder how they got my name, address and knew that I have a PC?

    Has anyone else got this letter?

I posted a reply under your other request. Normally one request is all that is needed on this forum to get an answer. ThumbsUp

In order to get the water to come out the 3" sewer pipe you will still need to open the valves using the motorized boxes in the sani-con compartment. What really happens when you open a valve the water runs into the 3" pipe and the sani-con pumps it from this pipe. If you don't want to use the sani-con, hookup a hose to the end of the 3" pipe and open the valve, after placing the other end in the sewer hole.

lmichael,
    On the way home from picking up the PC at the factory, I stopped and had it weight at a truck scale. When I got home I looked on the Michelin site and found their chart on my tires. It said that I could put 15 lbs less than what the door label said. Since then I have run with the pressure at 5 lbs less than the door, ie 70 lbs in the front and 75 in the rear. I feel this helps with the steering while keeping the gas mileage from dropping. I have been told that soft tires help ride and steering/traction while hard increases gas mileage.

    Do you know what the differences are between the Hellwig bars and the Roadmaster? I know the Roadmaster cost a lot more. I had my 2350 built on the E-450 for the stronger suspension. After reading all that has been said on here about changing the anti-sway bars, while at Camping World one day I had them put the Roadmaster rear anti-sway bar on. It did seem to help a little. Now I don't know the trucks are passing me until they are by my door and wake me up. heehee. I am running out of things to change on the PC, so one of these days I guess I might put the upgraded front bar on. Wonder if I could get away with the cheaper bar?

Billy,
The front DVD player has the amp built into the DVD player, which is where you get the surround sound from. You control the volume on the DVD play. This is why you do not need the front TV on to get sound. On the rear DVD player, the sound comes from the TV only, so it must be on and set for the DVD player in order to get sound.
