I think that the dash lights dimmer switch might control the running board lights. Try dimming the dash lights. The rotary switch on full bright would normally turn on the dome light, but it might be turning on the running board lights.

I had this same issue in both my PC2350 and my Winnebago before it. Like you said "no wall or stable area" to hook sliding drawer hardware too.  I could not find anything better around here. I checked all the major and minor hardware stores I know of. I did find at a Winne dealer a stronger rear bracket, still made of plastic, that seem to last a little longer. My guess is that Phoenix has not been able to find anything better either.

Jerry, I ended all the mail except the magazine from Good Sam by going into my profile on their web site and turning off just about every option of communications. I took about six months to stop getting all that junk mail. As for AARP I too dropped out but am still getting mail wanting me back. I wish I could stop that also. I keep thinking that my mother-in-law passed away in Dec 2009 and we still get junk mail addressed to her, even when we send letters to the companies telling them she died. Every now and then we get something for her from a new company we have never received anything from before. I guess once you are on a mailing list, and who isn't, you are on it for all eternity. shrug

Thank you Bob and Bob,

    I forgot about drilling the holes in the bottom of the top half of the ladder on this PC. I did it on the first one but old age memory got me on this one. I just drilled the holes and watched water run of of both sides. I don't know how it gets in there but it was there.

Welcome Tom - Reds.

I think you are doing your home work correctly. Not knowing the type of camping and where you want to do it makes it hard to offer advice. Th PC has double pane windows as an option, heated black and gray tanks are standard, fresh water tank in inside. Talk to Stuart at the PC display in Hershey, he is pretty straight with everyone.

We use our motorhome up to December in the mid-Alantic area and down south in December or January. February and March most campgrounds around here are closed.

Now the big question: ND or Navy? ND gets you points at the factory, a bunch of die hard fans work there. Navy is my choice. But it doesn't mater as all are welcome here.

We got the standard window and the door window came tinted. Not a very heavy tint, but it is tinted.

You pull out one pin at the bottom of each of the two legs of the ladder, fold the ladder up and drop it into the slot.  Very easy and only takes about two seconds.

JC is a little behind the times when it comes to the cost of the Fantastic vent covers. Camping World internet sale price is $50, normally $63 for the white ones. Here is the site for the vidieo Like JC I have put vent covers on every motorhome I have owned.

Marilyn, remember that if you have a problem on the roof in a campground, there will be someone around that would be willing to climb up your ladder to help you out if you give a big smile. On ladder means no help. One time I was driving to Myrtle Beach for the Christmas break and to get away from the snow and ice around here. I was on a two lane road with a car coming at me when I spotted at pine tree branch hanging low over my lane because it was full of ice. Well we hit it and it with a loud bang. When I was able to pull over, several miles later, I inched up my ladder and looked around. I too dislike heights and only get on my roof when really needed. I found that the branch had knocked off the cover of the satellite dish, leaving the rest of the dish exposed. When I got to the campground, I was able to tape a plastic bag over the dish until I could get a replacement cover shipped in.

When you go to pick up your new baby, besides the check, you will need to bring with you a couple of things. The first being towel bars and a toilet paper holder. They will mount these where ever you want them. You will see a lot of options on here as to where folks have mounted theirs. On our 2350 we had the towel bars mounted in the shower and the toilet paper holder across from the toilet. On the 2552 we had the towel bars mounted to the back of the sliding door. I mounted a Bears head toilet paper holder on the back of the wardrobe door using command hook and loop tape. In the heat this year the tape came unglued and the bears head fell and broke. I then mounted a holder that matched the towel bars on the back of the sliding door. If you have them mount one towel bar near the top of the door and the other below where the top towel will end, as far left on the door as possible, there will be room for the toilet paper holder on the far right side about three feet up from the floor. I sit down on the toilet and close the door and the paper is now right in front of me. This spot is working for us.

Another thing you might want to bring is vent covers for you Fantastic fans. When we are not running the A/C, we like to leave the vents open with the fan on whenever we leave the dog in the camper. With the cover we don't have to worry about rain. Also during the summer I always leave the vent cracked open to allow some of the heat out. Fantastic has just come out with a cover that allows the Maxim amount of air flow, even better than the Maxxair II that I have. You can go to the Fantastic site and see a Utube of how well their cover works compared to the other ones. Again Phoenix Doug will install them for free.

I am sure there are other things that I am forgetting right now, so when I remember them I will post them. I am sure that others will post there delivery experiences.

Those sound like some cool mods. We got the ladder but not the roof rack. One never knows when you might need to get on the roof to clean it or remove tree branches.

One other thing we have found has to do with the overhead lights. The new switch by the door turns on the light by the kitchen and we would have preferred it turn on the light by the door. We also wish they have taken one of the two bedroom overhead lights and put it up front near the front cabinets. Those cabinets can be kind of dark inside at night. I really don't need four lights and two reading lights in the bedroom.

Are you going to get the front shades from Amanda? They are kind of expensive but work really well at keeping people from seeing in during the day, keeping the sun/heat out and at night keeping the outside light from lighting up the front curtains.

Might I suggest that you go to Bed, Bath and Beyond and get the 3" memory form matters pad. You might want to put a blanket or two under the form, which you could store in the sofa in place of the air bed. You would have to roll up the form and put it behind the sofa for storage. Forget the air bed, none of them seem to hold air very long.

The sofa has two seat belts = 3th & 4th passenger can be belted.
