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.

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.
26  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

I have used the portable Break Buddy set up on several toads with zero issues.  The new Cherokee has a very thick pedal shaft that the BB clamp will not fit over.  I contacted BB and they sent me and adapter that actually attaches to the pedal; I do not find it a good set up at all.  The leather seats in the Cherokee and the angle of the front portion of the seat does not lent itself to good contact with the BB and the BB has a tendency to slip/flop around a lot.  I would endorse 100% going with a unit that is under the seat or a set up that is far more secure compared to the BB portable unit.  That is only if you were going to use it on a new Jeep Cherokee, other nits may work great but be careful with slippery leather.   Thanks.

I purchased the Blazer wireless light set up, they were like $120.00.  If I was to do it again I think I would spend a little more and get a more durable unit.  I spoke to a couple wrecker companies that use them all the time when towing trucks and they have had no problems.  Time will tell but I just could not cut into my new Jeep wiring.

at least on my Liberty and now Cherokee the Roadmaster base plate was great and the mounts on the toad were totally hidden when the base plate was off.  the new Roadmaster set up is a twist lock and does not use pins at al anymore so very easy.   I have never used Blue Ox but know it is great stuff and I am sure they use basically the same twist lock set up.  Not sure you can go wrong with either.

Dale and Cindy:   First and foremost,  congrats on your two new purchases!   I agree with Doneworking 150%.   Like  Doneworking I like to tackle a lot of vehicle work but ripping into a new vehicle is just to complicated these days since they all use new fasteners, etc. that you must have special tools to not break stuff.   The only new approach I have utilized on my new Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk was wireless remote lights.  In the past I have always hard wired my toads and trust me over the years there is always corrosion and the lights begin to cause problems and todays cars have such a complicated electronic syatem I chose to not cut into the system at all.  The wireless light unit just sits on top of the Jeep vie magnets  (I placed some Diamond Shield film on the roof so no scratching) and you plug the remote transmitter into the plug on the PC and away you go.  You get about 10 hours of constant use out of the AA batteries.  yes, it is one more thing to set up but it honestly takes seconds and I just leave them on the vehicle when I am traveling.  I would use either Roadmaster of Blue Ox towing equipment, both company's offer  great customer support.  Good luck.
