jatrax....We have all been in your shoes to a certain extent at some point.  Relax and go with the flow.  When you get a chance and really read the manuels a couple of times everything will begin to sink in and you will get into a nice routine.  If you are of average size I often never put the jacks down if site is flat.  Best of luck.   RAG

jatrax....I would let atleast 5-8 lbs out of your tires, having the tires a max really makes the coach pound and unless you are really loaded very heavy you are well within limits running a little less pressure.   best of luck

jatrax.....Congrats on the new coach.  Go easy and break that big V-10 in easily.    I hope you are west of the very bad weather?!  Enjoy.  R.A.G.

This is great news Two Hams.....I think you have had enough small issues for one trip so carry on,  be careful and enjoy your new coach!

Two Hams....I am sorry I have no answer for your situation.   I would be very careful about forcing anything since there are a lot of plastic parts in there that i am sure will break very easily. Does the bowl hold water?  I wonder if the slide is just not hanging up on the rubber seal?  did you keep fluid (antifreeze) in the bowl all winter?  The seals will dry out

The armless Carefree awnings are very cool and you do not constantly wack your head on the sliding arms used on PC's awnings.   The wind/rain sensor is all so nice since there is really nothing that holds the armless awaning donw if a heavy wind came up.  i have the armless carefree on my Renegade and it works very well. good luck

Doneworking.....there is no doubt the m-pump hangs out there some and I am sure there is some significant movement back to the coupling.  I would find it hard to believe that there would be enough flex/pressure to break all of the ears on the coupling.  My bet is at some point you backed up into a banking and the pump hit and that is what broke the ears; happened to me once in my back yard and I never felt a think.  Week later saw a small puddle under the coupling.  I may be wrong but I am just saying!  Good thing is PC has the new pump coupling and the job is very easy.  Best of luck

Congrats GradyGal!  Our needs and wants change all the time and while we have our good health and some dollars in the pockets why not try something else!   Newmar makes a super coach.  What model did you purchase?  If you see a big Renegade Verona coming down the road  just give me a wave.  Like you, there are  aspects of the PC that will always be with you, I miss the ability to pick the phone up and call Kermit  the most.    Be safe.   R.A.G

I have had one PC with and one without dual pain windows, I can say there is not a significant difference is actual cabin noise reduction with dual pains but I do think they are worth the money for other reasons especially if you are going out in cooler temps like in the fall.   I do have some concern about the extra wait and that was the main reason I did not get them on my 3100.  You would not have the weight issue in a 2350 especially if you are going with the E-450 and you should be doing that.   best of luck and congrats.  R.A.G.

I have not received my $5.00 yet.  That is the amount I was told we are all getting.

Yes Ron, work was done on my beloved 3100 (no longer have).

I once had to replace the black tank gate valve and let me tell you it was one pain.   The entire plumbing system was built from the tank out and the tolerances are much closer than you might think!   There are flanges/nipples as I recall on the valve assembly and getting the 3 "round thin gaskets to stay on each side of the valve assembly so that they make up correctly is a real PIA!   You just do not have enough play in  the piping to spread apart enough to get the new valve in while keeping the gaskets where they need to be, forcing it to much and you will break a joint down the line for sure.   After hours of trying different approaches to keep the flimsy round gaskets in place I was successful.  At one point I was going to merely cut all of the piping out and start from the valve with all new pipe like how they put it together at the factory.  You would think it would all be cut and dry  (30 min. job)but I found it difficult.  You can service the electric activate mechanism with out getting into the actual slide valve and I would recommend that approach unless of course the valve is bent or something.  Good luck

Make sure you get the Vin #  well in advance and get your vehicle insurance all lined with the policy's effective date the day you pick your rig up.  I picked a coach up in Elkhart once and I had a 10 hour drive back to NH....thru in my sleeping bag, a few snacks and headed  home.   I would not worry much and just enjoy the coach.

Having owned both a 2551S and a 3100 I can say the 3100 is a much better handling coach.  The longer wheel base makes for a much better ride and handles much better compared to the 2551.  The extra weight of the 3100 tones down the rough ride of the E-450 under the 2551.  In my four years of ownership of the 3100 I only dragged the rear end once.  Fully loaded with fuels and water the GVW was 930 lbs under max and both axles were within weight limits.  I would have some concern that with an additional slide and dual pain windows you might then be pushing the GVW.  The only issue with the longer wheel based 3100 is the turning radius is very significant, like you need a football field to turn her around.  I added all of the suspension goodies and that made for a very well behaved coach.  best of luck
