1  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Full timing in a 2350? on: December 02, 2015, 11:40:22 pm
Size wise, the 2350 is as maneuverable as a small motorhome can be.  We have had a 200P and also a 210P.  They are like having a car with amenities.  Shower is adequate depending on your size.  I am 5'7", 200lbs. and use our shower when on the road.  Corner bed is the reason we traded after one trip to a 2551.  It is not a full size bed so it is tight.  Plus the fact you are both up against hard walls, becomes very restrictive.  Did not have any trouble with roadability.  You could add a Trac Bar to the rear and control the tail wagging the dog affect.  The water tank is aft of the axle, under the corner bed which creates the tail wagging.  Most areas will not allow you to park your unit in your front yard, which you could do in most cases with a Roadtrek.  We find a slide out is a necessity.  Dramatically improves your livability, especially if you are going full time.  Did not like the dinette, too confined and uncomfortable seating.  Go with a electric couch with built-in recliner with foot rest.  Love ours on the 2551, also gives an option area to sleep.
    These are just our thoughts, others will have different opinions.  Hope this helps.

Bruce and Sharon,
    Thanks for the info. I will give Kermit a call.  Even if I need to buy one, it will fit the hole.

My stereo says "hello" when turned on and then the readout goes to the word "protection" twice and then turns off.  Spoke to Samsung and as little as I could understand him, he said bad cable to the TV.. Worked fine one day ago and after some rough freeway in Calif. it refuses to do anything but stated above.  I disconnected all cables except power and speakers figuring I would eliminate all external feeds in and out and would use only the CD play only.  Same problem.  Anybody have this experience?  I am guessing something in the box broke.  Tried to look up on Samsung web site but it says no such model exists.  Must be really old to not exist on their site.  This is a 2014 coach.

I stapled some of the indoor/outdoor carpet on each platform.  No more sliding or any other problems with splinters, etc.

Tom,
    On our Euro chair, it was secured to the floor with a device that had a spin on/off knob.  You definitely want it secured because if you are involved in an accident  that chair becomes a lethal flying object.  Also, any sharp evasive maneuver can cause it to fly loose.  I would check with PC about their securing device.
    The chair is not to be used when the vehicle is in motion.  There is no safety belt for it because it is not rigidly mounted to the floor.  On our one unit we had a third captains chair installed for our granddaughters baby seat and we had a regular car lap belt installed.  Lap belt can only be installed on a securely mounted seat.

LRS,
    Now that is the best solution for the relocation of the back-up monitor.  Puts the view right where you need it without having to move your eyes away.  Your mirrors, windshield and monitor now are all I normal eye level.  Thanks for a great idea.

I put the cushioned shelf liner in, cut to size, and then use a heavy stapler in the corners and once in the middle.  Now nothing moves.

To be honest, I have not paid much  attention to it because we have not been able to use the coach.  We are involved in the Estate of our neighbor, which will take most of the year, so no motor home use for awhile.  Seeing as the freeze weather is over, I will check to see if I have any water in the system and operate the pump and check for noise.

John and Carol,
     I can not verify the other side of the pump as I do not have that coach now.  I did check my current 2551 and the flex line is on the inlet side, not where it was supposed to go.  The outlet side is rigid.

John and Carol,
    The paperwork that comes with the pump says to install a flexible line between the pump and the pressure side, or output side, of the pump.  This eliminates pulsing feedback through the plumbing.  When I read this on our first PC, I had the factory install the flex line on our 2552, which was the first 2552 produced.  See attached photo.  You can see the short flex line.

Here are pictures of the first 2552 and the additional Captains Chair installation.  Worked great as an additional seat when only the two of us, also.  Put the back of the front chair down and sit in the add-on chair with a place to put your legs.  Also, nice when you want to sit and relax in complete shade.  Granddaughter loved the seat and she would watch videos while on the road.

First recommendation is do not use channel lock pliers to remove the water heater plug.  It is plastic and you can see he is just chewing it up.  Get a socket to fit it and keep it in the coach so it is available when you need it.  I also put it back in place loosely so it does not get lost.  Water heater manufacturer says a little water remains in the heater but freezing will not hurt it. 
      I use my coach in the winter so I blow out my lines with air, that way in the winter when I get home I blow them out again.  When you use RV antifreeze you will have to sanitize the system before use.  Blowing them out they remain dry and clean. 
     Someone in the past said that Phoenix does not recommend blowing the lines out. I cannot figure why they would say that as all winter long Phoenix uses air to check the water system for integrity and leaks.  They do not put water in the system in the winter.  That is how we had a new flooded coach.  After checking the system with air, they cross threaded the main line from the tank to the pump and when we got ready to use it for the first time, while filling the fresh tank, I went inside and found water every where.  Of course this was a 2350 where the tank is under the corner bed and had to remove 20? screws to find the leak. 
     I put winter windshield washer fluid in the P traps, dump valves and macerator pump.  All the RV Dealers in our area, North Idaho, use windshield washer fluid because it is much less expensive.  If it can not hurt all the plastic, hoses and seals in the windshield washer system, it is OK for our P traps.
     Just some of my thoughts on winterizing.

Mark,
    Thanks for the feedback on what you had to go through to make this repair.  Good info if anyone else has a similar problem.

Maybe these photos will help you with the construction of the 2552.  Took them when at the factory.  If you need bigger pictures, e-mail me at bnhickey@gmail.com.
