Hi Holly, et al,
The ladder will swing down over the cargo rack, but I have to remove the storage box - no big deal as long as I take the wts out first!
All the best,

As I understand it the fuse is in the starting circuit, but not critical. I was having other work done and it was replaced - the mechanic said they were still coming through with the 20 amp
Anyway he replaced, yes, Mercedes has sent out a directive.
On your battery there's obviously a short someplace. I would go to a Mercedes dealer that services Sprinters - it should be under warranty if your rig is under 3 yrs ' 36k miles. More dealers
Are servicing sprinters since they are gaining popularity commercially.
Good luck,

For Sprinter owners - there is a 20 amp fuse - I think it's a-23 that Mercedes has recommended to be replaced with a 25... This is in the starting circuit  and the mechanic just told me the new units are still coming through with the 20s --- I don't think its a big issue, but you might want to replace, or tell your mechanic...

We had near spray with us in Glacier & didn't need it thank goodness. Did see a black while horseback in the Tetons. That was interesting!!!

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) .

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 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.
