Yes, it's good to run it regardless - you're right on about the gasoline. My problem (I think) is I filled the propane in Yellowstone last summer, and I read somewhere that often big users get a mixture with more butane in the summer - this supposedly doesn't work as well in winter. I'm a little beyond the scope of my book in this but for whatever reason it wouldn't run/start until I had fresh fill with propane (it only took 2 gals. So it wasn't the low volume problem) .
Best,
Jack

That's often the issue with them, and a lot easier than messing with wires!!!
Good luck & enjoy,

Hey Guys! Sorry you had the problem, but glad you got it resolved! I bad a problem with mine as well but it was a propane situation (with the sprinter) so not the same: HOWEVER, I have now scheduled to run it at least once a month, (recommended by many) to be safe. It's one of those things that is only needed when you (we) need it.
We'll be emailing you - all the best,
Jack (& Linda)

Have you tried turning the screw in the back of the motor? Sometimes it gets jammed with paper, etc. And you need to turn it manually to get it started.

We are currently in a State Park in the UP that is very nice,
With elec. but no water or dump at the site- there are a number of them in the area if you can get along with just elec.
Look forward to seeing you all in Petrosky.

We had the 2400 for a short while, and went back to the 2350 (went to 2400 sprinter from gas 2350, then to 2350 sprinter - yes, I know!!!!) anyway, yes you are standing in the door way/well. The tankage in the sprinter seems correct as you state, but I'd check with PC - the grey fills before the black. The tv is high, but doesn't present a problem in the 2350 for us as I use the euro chair, & DW lies on the sofa. We love the sprinter - 2350!!!

I replaced the pump on a previous PC, and I can do some stuff, but am not a mechanic, for sure. I got the replacement from Carol at the factory, and at a price less than from Thetford.  I do like the macerator, and use it all the time....to each his own.
For sensors, it is most important to flush with fresh water after dumping, wait until the tank is 3/4 full before you dump, and use either the commercial holding tank stuff or a soap mixture (I've not used the mix but a friend of mine swears by it).  Also, there is a sensor cleaner which might help the error.

Carol...

There is a check valve on the city water inlet (not sure if that's where water is leaking, or the fresh water inlet to the tank). It can stick open (mine did on the 2350 sprinter) and water will leak...

Just a thought,
Jack

Ron...

You're so right! I too wondered how so many thought the air mattress was "okay".  I couldn't put up with it and made so much of a fuss, I think the factory changed to the electric sofa bed on new models.  This is just one more example of how great the folks at Phoenix are, and how they respond.

You might try turning the screw on the end of the pump - a few turns.  Sometimes they get jammed or stuck and turning the screw manually will clear it.  There is a rubber cover on the end of the pump which has to be removed to get to the screw.

David,

Call Carol at the factory - she can either send you some or give you the matching color spec.

Thanks Carol! I think I understand the process, and will check out the slides at HD.  For right now I mounted an L bracket under the plastic female fitting on the wall behind the drawer. So far it seems to be holding up, but its well to have something to fall back on.

Again thanks,
Jack

Carol...

Please let me know what your husband does to replace the slide mechanism - I braced the plastic fittings with a steel L bracket for support, but I'm not sure how long it will last. On my 2350 there is no side wood for the ball bearing slide to mount to. That's the reason for the support under the plastic wall fitting.

Thanks,
Jack

 We are experts on this, as most everyone knows who followed this board in the past!!! The mechanical sofa in the 2400, with the air mattress was AWFUL! I won't go into all the details, but I'm sure you have the same complaints.  In short, the good folks at Phoenix changed the air bed completely with an electric, memory foam sofa bed that was easier to open and much more comfortable!!! I believe they are now installing only the electrics with memory foam.  There is a charge for the replacement, since it does involve a pretty full days labor, but in my opinion well worth it.
We have since traded the 2400 for a 2350, with memory foam & electric, and are very happy "campers"

Denny took the words out of my mouth! I too blow out the lines (Camping World, etal, have the fitting that attaches to the city water inlet) and we're ready to go South in Feb.  I do put a little antifreeze. In the drain traps.

I used to keep 2 - 100 watt light bulbs in the bilge of my boat to keep the condensation down, but still blew out the lines, just to be safe.
