1  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2017 version slide out - a River Runs Thru It? on: April 21, 2017, 01:42:24 pm
As I am sure we all know water can travel a great distance in wall/roof panels before it shows its ugly head!  .   You have to determine if the leak is inside the box or outside (slide box I am referencing)?  I would be very suspicious about leaks occuring with the slide in...i would guess the leak is elsewhere and is merely showing up above the slide.   i would call Kermit or Bob and gettheir input as to where to start looking.   Do not let a water leak continue.

Castaplenty.....As I recall my 3100 (and the other models are the same) there really is not all that much to stop water from coming in at the corners if you had a very heavy rain like you are obviously having.  There is a bead of "goo" (Dycor product) that runs along the back of the slide tray that acts as a dam to keep water out. If the coach was tipped even slightly and the rain fall was significant it would be enough for the dam to be breached and intrusion into the coach would occur. It is not easy but you might want to run another bead on top of the current or merely check to see if there are any breaks in the current bead that may have let water pass thru or over?  Water where it is not suppose to be as it pertains to and  RV's is not a good mix so you do need to address the issue now before damage is done and you have a big bill for repairs.   best of luck.

How did the previous owner not catch that potential unit failure!!!??  Must have been due to the harsh NH winters......

Garmp.......Not sure what your budget might be but Cleanandcool.com makes some super insulated interior screens that Velcro up.   I have a set for my Freightliner and they work super in the cool/cold weather and they look really nice with white on the side you see  from the outside and grey on the interior side.  They are all made in the USA.  The screens all fold up nicely.   Good luck.

Offering the 80" beds is a superb idea, those bunks are very short in those two models.   I am sure they are extending the frames and drivelines like they do with the 2900's and 3100's.  Must keep those overhangs as short as possible!  I found the ride in my 3100 much better compared to the 2551 I had and I am sure that was due to the longer wheelbase.  Needed a football field to tunr her around but that is life.

Two Hams in a Can.....the only thing I would try is to first bend those little springs out some so they get as much grip as possible, I would then clean the heck out of the rims and place some Ulta duty Velcro pads (the felt piece) exaxctly where the spring are and see if that does not give some extra grip enough to hold them in place?   My bet is they will continue to "walk" but who knows?   Ron G.

Doneworking has the right approach.....I would agree, I bet the valve will not leak with merely the handle missing.   Any good RV shop has the crimp tool and could get in there and replace the valve, it does not have to be the same style as OEM since you are merely looking to just shut the flow of water off and any 1/2" valve will do that.  Good luck

MagnaShades all the way.  I have had two sets and they look and work great.   They now offer a perfect color match option or have a specific design imprinted.  Company is superb to work with and they are based in NC.  Go directly thru the company and you will safe a few bucks vs's thru PC

This months MotorHome magazine came with their comprehensive Dingy Towing Guide, I would suggest all get thier hands on this valuable resource that lists all cars and which ones can and can not be towed and what special instrcutions apply to tow them.  IMO Jeep is the clear winner in the dingy catagory since they are easy to tow with no special needs and the odometer does not record the towed miles. Keeping that tow bar no more than 3"  (level is ideal) out of being level is crtical to good towing.  best of luck

I am very sorry to hear of your disapointment with your new coach.   I have had two PC's but have never oredered one custom so can not pass judgement.   I would say that with the purchase of my 8 coaches over the years I always "hold back" some of the final dollars due so that if anything should go wrong at least I have some leverage to make right.  All RV manafacturers are at capacity at this time as they cranked out over 435,000 units in 2016, much of the usual QC has gone by the way side as they are leaving alot of the final fixes up to the dealers.   I hate to see PC go the way of the rest of the industry and not maintain their attention to customization and the small details.  Getting everything in writing and going over everything multiple times is the lesson here I am afraid.  Take a breath and enjoy your coach.

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
