Not that familar with the Interstate 6 volts but I did have sme Trojan 6 volt that had that lever set up for the caps and you did have to keep and eye on the levels.  With that said I did have and 08 Grand Cherokee  diesel that had a large battery that had removal caps, I topped it off (did not overfill) and in less than a week it overflowed and the acid took out the control module.  Service guy said the battery was maintenance free and despite the fact the caps came off water was never to be added, I learned a hard lesson.

GoPhoenix......I sold two coaches on www.rvonline.com..  nice people to deal with and both coaches went fast.  Might be worth a try...you will be missed and I do hope you keep posting on this forum.  Best of luck.  Ron G.
3  Main Forum / General Discussion / Water leak on: June 25, 2015, 02:12:55 pm
I had noticed a couple of times over the winter some wet carpet on the right side (facing the slide when inside) corner, we all know water and RV's do not mix!!  I checked everything over even re caulked the front cap seam, etc and did not find anything obvious on the roof but did see wetness one more time.    I placed a call to Kermit (reported on the good service from him in another post) who told me to really look over the small plastic down spout that catches water off the slide topper/roof, he has seen water back up and go under that topper track and run down the wall.  Sure enough the spout had broken over the winter and in very heavy down pours the water would back up, literally run up hill and down the wall.  I got a new down spout (like $7.00 for four on Amazon) and installed with one screw and some Dcor self leveling goop and we have now had several very, very heavy rains with zero wet carpet.  I would never have guessed that water would run up hill, around a screw and down the wall enough to wet carpet!   Thanks to Kermit again for knowing his coaches inside and out.  I love my 3100!  Thanks, Ron G.

That is basically correct Ron...to much force for the canister itself.  The next mega issue will be the company (Takata) will go bankrupt!

Jas....the valves are under/behind the bottom draw in the kitchen.  The little levers on the draw slides need to be pushed one up one down and the draw slides out and you will see the three valves for the bypass as well as the two low water drains.  Have fun visiting new england....come to NH and spend some money!!

Barry-Sue:
Thanks for the info.  I have been warned by my dealer to not draw any conclusion yet as to if any/all vehicles are included in the recall since the manufacturers are still uploading the data
and it still may be weeks before they know what vehicles are involved or not.  The word now is some that all ready been recalled may have to be recalled again since the replaced inflators are not correct!

Kermit is a wealth of information.  I realize he has been making these coaches for a long time but his knowledge of where every connection is, etc. just floors me every time I have a discussion with him.  It is obvious he likes helping his customers and I am appreciative of that fact.  Ths., Ron G.

Heavy rain up here in NH and I noticed some wet around one corner near the slide on the PC.  Everything looks very tight on the roof and wall so I placed a call to PC and as usual I got passed right thru to Kermit , the owner of PC.  We had a super  conversation and he led me to a couple possible trouble spots.   What other RV manafacturer offers the owner as the number one resourse  for consumer inquiries?!

Sorry all!!  I was not home when I was posting and thought the rear marker lights were like the front ones and mounted on the surface not recessed.  Brain lapses are coming more frequently!!!!  Thanks, RG

The only issue I have is when I get the monitor just right the next time I get up to go to the back of the coach it never fails I "whack" my head very hard on the screen!  That is life!

Tom...I believe Sparky and others are referencing the "marker" lights, those are the 5 smaller lights that run across the top of the front and rear caps, their is a tenancy of branches, etc striking and knowing them off the coach.   You are correct in stating the LED taillights/blinkers/stop lights  (3" in diameter) should out live us all!!!   Have a great weekend and be careful.  Ron G.

I would have to agree with Ron D. 100%, installing the trac bar is not just a "hick up" but a major pain.  I attempted to install a Blue Ox bar on my 2012 and ultimately gave up and sent it back.  There is a major wire harness exactly where the unit was to fit on the frame rail with no play what's so ever, there is some antilock brake valves there as well that just made securing the rather heavy hardware impossible for me.  Having a lift (I do not have one of course) would make the process easier I am sure.  IMO installing a trac bar is in no way a DIY project period.  Best of luck.
14  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Good handling 3100 on: May 26, 2015, 10:39:30 am
I must say I enjoy driving my 3100 very much and I do think the longer wheelbase makes a huge difference in handling, at least as compared to the 2551 I had.  I do most work myself so I did add all of the bells and whistles like Bilstiens, front and rear Hellwig stabilizer bars and new Raodmaster steering stabilizer.  I wish I could say I noticed a "huge" difference but I can not.  The coach goes into a corner with absolutely no body roll,  I feel minimal truck draft, I get zero nose diving with heavy braking and the coach goes down the road dead straight.  Towing my Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk  has no influence on the vehicles handling.  Was it worth what I invested ..."yes"  because it made for a safer vehicle, was it unsafe from the factory...no.  The only issue I have is I do think the ride is rough, I run 70 PSI in the front and 75 PSI in the rear, with out the fuel and water tanks full she can be very harsh on secondary roads.  The E-450 is one tough chassis.   Thanks, Ron G.
15  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: TOWING WITH OUR SPRINTER 2350 on: May 21, 2015, 09:30:51 am
Having had a non-PC Sprinter based coach (Monaco) I would have to say I would be extremely hesitant about towing a 3,000 plus pound vehicle behind a Sprinter. I towed my 4300 lb Jeep Liberty once and that was enough for me, at times I think the Jeep was towing the Sprinter!  The hitch may be rated to tow 5,000 lbs but that does not really mean the rest of the chassis can handle that kind of weight.  Like other posters have stated the weak link is in fact the transmission, the 3.0L is one tough bird!  Sorry to be negative but just my opinion.   Thanks, Ron
