Joeseph:  There is no idle adjustment at all on the Sprinter and they do not and should not be idled longer than a few minutes.  Yes, the old diesels use to idle all night long but not any longer for air quality equipment has changed everything and that is a good thing.....

I bet Kermit is working on something despite his claim to the contrary.  The F series would be a super option for a little longer PC.  I would be interested in such a model.   Wait and see I guess.

Ldjit......congrats on the placement of  your order for a PC.  Like you I was tired of  the big Monaco
Coaches (2) and moved to PC.  I started with a 2551 and moved up to the 3100.  I will celebrate  3 years in May with the 3100 and I have had zero issues .  Any questions I have ever had I just call Kermit and he is aways super  and goes out of his way to help.

TomH is on the money...between 8-9 for the most part.  If you want to do 55 MPH MPG might go up some.  3100 is a very nice model that is perfect for a couple.   Good luck.

Having not spend a lot of time in the "sunshine state" I cannot comment much in regards to condensation other than I am sure it can be a problem but enough to really feel wet sounds like a lot of H2O.  Over the years I have learned the hard way that seams may look tight but are not and it does not take much to allow water to get thru. and travel in many directions.    I would go over all of those clearance lights with some clear silicone, I would run a new bead of self leveling chaulk along the  seam between the roof and the B+ cap and see if that makes any difference.  Is it wetter after a heavy rain?  water leaks are tough because the leak can be "upstream" and then gets into a channel and who knows where it can ultimately show up.  regardless you do want to find the source since moisture in the wrong places in any RV is not good.  Best of luck.  Ron G.

Very sad that the original owner has advanced cancer and  this situation has forced the sale of the company to a large venture capital group.  Not many of the old family owned RV makers left in the marketplace.  Kermit better not sell out on us!!!

JT...it is my understanding that you must hold the white switch up for some time before you attempt to start the truck.  Merely flicking the switch will not anything.  Hope this helps?  Thanks, Ron

Janey..there are no stupid questions and sometimes there is no rationalizing how things operate or do not operate!  Keep asking the questions and someone on the forum will help you out.  Ron

In regards to leaving the engine running while operating the jacks and what are the "safety concerns" as to why one should not do that...
1. I often leave the coach door open, my wife is always quick to open windows, vents, etc and i just do not like to fill the coach with engine fumes while I am setting up.
2. I like to be polite to my next door campers and always try to be as quite as possible and shutting down the engine as soon as possible  to prevent noise and exhaust from be bothersome to them, I always shut my headlights off as soon as I can if I come in at night as well.
3. The chance that the truck would jump out of park is extremely rare I grant you that but stranger things have happened and a major car manfacturer is recalling vehicles now for this exact issue so why would you want to chance something strange happening?   There must be a reason why the jack manafacturer requires the parking brake to be engaged and does not depend on just "park" being utilized before operating the jacks.   I once had a Monaco product that actaully had and intelock that prevented the jacks from working with the engine running I wonder why?
4. When gas was not $2.50 per gallon it made good sense to shut that V-10 down any chance one could get.

While my points are perhaps not all "safety" driven I hope they make sense?   Thanks, Ron

Good morning....You do not have to read this forum for long to see that there are many differing opinions about many subjects.  I have done a fair amount of research on the Atwood RV water heater web site and i would suggest that perhaps others spend some time on the site and in particular on the Troubleshooting manuel that is on the site.   Weeping pressure valves do not in any way represent a malfuction of the water heater or a lack of air in the tank.  Atwood designs and internal air gap at the top of the tank, actually well above the pressure relief valve.  Over time the water in the tank will absorb the air in the air gap and there are specific instructions on the Atwood site as to how you can introduce air back into the tank by releasing the pressure valve lever until water comes out and then letting it snap shut.  I would suggest that if you have the time or the interest do some reading for releasing air from the pressure valve does not cause the valve to weep and if done right may infact promote better air gap fuctionality.   Have a great and safe holiday season.   Ron

as sated the red light only comes on when there is not proper ingnition when on propane.   Just one additional point...do not run the water heater without water in it!  The heat will destroy the unit.  Make sure valves are right (think you have them right) before you fire the unti off.  I always bleed the air off and make sure the tank has water by cracking the pressure relaease handle towrds the top of the tank on the outside of the coach.   You will get it all down perfectly in time.  have fun!
