    If you did not have a battery problem with your PW then you should not have a problem with your PC. The PC has newer technology so it will be better than the PW. Save your money or put it into the gas tank and enjoy your PC.

As the Australian say "No worries, mate".

Ron,

    When you hook up your 40 amp charger while running the generator, do you disconnect the house batteries first to prevent back feeding into the converter? My understanding is that on the newer converters, back feeding can cause them to over heat and possibly cause a fire. You would then have a pile of ashes where your PC was sitting.

I followed Billy's example and replaced most of my screws behind the slide. I found that #8 1" SS worked for me. I started by using brass but way to soft and striped four of them so bad I can not get them back out. I did not have any problems with the SS screws. I could not reach under the slide's awning so they are still the original screws.

Hi George,

    Did you give any thought to flipping over the top door so that it opens the same way the bottom two doors open? I did that to several doors in our first PC so they opened the way I liked. It was a pretty easy task. Looking at your pictures has me thinking I want to flip that door in our current PC.

Very nice job.  ThumbsUp

Everyone might want to check out this national park service web site about park passes. There are passes for the seniors-$10, military-free, volunteers-free with 250 hours and everyone else-$80. At $80 a year and major parks charging $25 a week it would not take long to start saving.

no fumes here either. I put a very heavy coat of polyurethane on the top of both beds and the bottom of the drivers side because it lefts up. I also put the corner guards along the edge to protect our fingers.

OK I went out to the motorhome and tore both beds apart looking for the tag. I am glad to report that both of us are sleeping on the correct side of the mattress. The tag is on the end side at the top. So now you will not have to send the mattress police after me.  rolling on the floor

When we got our 2552 with the twin beds I slept two nights on it before heading to Bed, Bath and Beyond to get a two inch memory form mattress topper. I sleep on my side and my hip was hurting in the morning. i tried that for several nights and it was some what better but still not that good for me. On our last trip I flipped the whole setup over, now the pad is on the bottom and the mattress is upside down. I slept like a baby for the rest of the trip, except for the old man bathroom breaks. Now I don't know which side has the label on it, but I don't care because this works for me.  nod If anyone knows how to stop the old man bathroom breaks at night, please let me know. LOL

But we always slide the mattress forward when making the bed to tuck the back corners in. Can you still do this?
I have put two coats of Polyurethane and the edge guards on the boards per your earlier posting. So far we have stopped all the splitters.

How about taking a coat hanger, cutting out about 12", bending it into a U. Turn the U over the hose near the end and push it into the ground to hold the hose in place. simple, light weight and easy to store.

I added the Bilstein shocks and a rear anti-sway bar to our 2010 2350. I don't think the anti-sway bar was worth the money because it came with a larger bar the the older models did, but the shocks did help. Our 2012 2552 does not seem to need any upgrades except in a heavy wind or some trucks passing. I might be putting Bilstein shock on it because I like the extra control they give me. It will make the ride a little harsher, more sports car like ride. It is all a matter of taste.

    The earlier models of PC did not come with the 3" valve, just the Sani-con. My 2010 did come with a 3" opening with a cap mounted just after the pipe turns to the side to go to the Sani-con.  It was to allow one to get access to the drain pipes coming from the black and gray tanks. In 2011 there was some discussions on this forum about this opening. Shortly after that the pictures of the new PC showed a 3" emergence valve from the rear of the motorhome. My 2012 came with this opening with a valve to control the flow to the opening versa just the opening. Some of us like to use the Sani-con for one nighters and the 3" for longer stays. The 3" allows us to open the gray valve and leave it open. We then close it to collect some water, just before we need to dump the black tank. We open the black tank, drain and flush it, close the black tank. Then open the gray again to dump the water, thus flushing the hose with soapy water. It helps to keep the hose from stinking. Never and I repeat never leave the black tank valve open after dumping it and always put at least one bowl of water into the bank. If you don't follow this rule, you will end up with "THE CONE Cry" that will stop up the tube coming down from the toilet. Help It is a major job to remove this cone by using water and a long rod to break up the cone. At a dealer the new guy normally gets this job.  rolling on the floor

    Some campgrounds have the sewer pipe with  threads and some don't. You should be able to insert the end/cone of the hose into the sewer. You will see all kinds of ways to hold the hose in the pipes that are not threaded. LOL

Just by reading this forum, you can tell we all like them and that most of us have had one or more, some of us many many more motorhomes before our PC. Just be carefull, they can be like potato chips, hard to have just one.  rolling on the floor

Which layout fits you, only you and your better half can tell.

On our first PC the A/C went out after about a year. I took it to CW in winchester, Va. They called dometic because a tube leaked all the freon. Dometic sent a new unit to CW. No cost to me. Our current A/C is a penguin by duo-therm with the  digital wall control/night lite.

You might try calling Dometic and tell them what is going on. Phone calls are cheaper than A/C units.
