Keelhauler:

You must have gotten a Ford Service rep on a good day!   I spoke with them at length 2 years ago pertaining to the front end alignment on my 2011 2551S, they flat out refused to pick the tab up and said it was the responsibility of the RV manafacturer and not Ford.  I went to a truck center (no Ford dealer could do it in NH) and had it done and submitted the $120 bill to them with a nice form letter and they again turned me down!  Perhaps they have changed their policy of late and they should have!   Thanks, Ron

2 Fraz....Just did a little research and discovered as I am sure you have that Grapponne Ford Truck Center is no longer in Bow but is in Londonderry under the name of NH Ford Truck of Londonderry.  it does appear that they service cutaway vans.   I guess when Ford got out of big truck business a few years ago they closed the Bow large center.  Again, good luck!    Thanks

I would suggest Grappone Ford Truck Center in Concord.  I use Mcfarland Ford here in Exeter for my 3100 and they treat me very well, their sister dealership is Hampton Ford.  You will not get one Ford dealership in NH to do a front end alighinment and even Westbrook, Maine truck center will not.  I had to go to Donovan Spring in Manchester and they did and OK job. I tried Ford Customer Service for alignmnet info and they were of absolutely no help.   Good luck

No rotation here!  If they are going round and round with no bumps or thumps I leave them alone!  Many vehicle makers s including BMW are not reccomending any rotation if all looks good.   Thanks, Ron

Thanks for the info!!   Will now utilize the approach as you have described.    Ron

BarbRN:

You can utilize the 3" outlet with a regular sewer hose hooked up and just leave the gray tank valve open.  There is a gate valve on the 3" so ope that as well.  With the 3" closed you can all so open both electric valves and utilize both tanks as if they were one, nice feature when the gray tank gets full with no place to dump.  I would say you need a good tank cleaner to just get the "crud" off from the tank contacts to make i read true.  Good luck.   Ron

Folks:

I agree with everything you all have said in regards to the pain cleaning the front is.....but   I would like to ask if you all wax the Diamond Shield?  I have been told to not wax it since it will turn it yellow in short order?  The liquid that PC sends with every new unit is the only stuff you are suppose to use on Diamond Shield product...I am sure it is just like any other Armor All.  Has anyone else heard to not use wax or at least and oil based wax?   Thanks, Ron

Barb:

I agree that the arms rests need to be adjustable; not sure there is much that can be done with the set up we all currently have...Paul's Seating (supplier of seats to PC) needs to offer such a feature.   Ron

Ron:

Cat Scales (trade name) are found at most truck stops and they only weigh  "by the axle".  Here in NH the Dept of Motor vehicle do random mobile truck safety clinics/stops and they utilize the individual wheel scales but they are not overly open to doing anyone a favor I have been told.  Not sure what I am going to do to be honest.  Perhaps big spring/chassis truck repair shops offer such a service?  Good luck, Ron G.

I called Michelin on that very question and they had a very quick answer....take the heaviest corner and inflate both tires (double if rear) to that PSI.   Thanks

Sparkey:   Sounds to me like you are utilizing the right approach.  I might want to go a few extra miles to make sure all is warmed up well and make sure the generator has a load on it of a least 50%; just running the gen set with no load does not do much.  best of luck.  Ron

Your four corner info is great and very valuable.  I am impressed that PC has done such a good job of balancing things out so well front to rear and side to side.  i am sure a full water tank will change things some. I would say 70 lbs would be perfect for your coach.  Now I know why my 2551S never handled exactly the way  I would have liked it to....I was running way to much air at 75 and 80lbs!  Thanks, Ron

Denny and Barb:   I agree 100% with your line of thinking..... you would most likely never have a full water tank and holding tanks but I was just looking for what might be the max possible GVW and in particular the individual axle weights.  I have a feeling  this discussion is going to go on and on until someone has each cornered weighed with a full load on board, then we can (by model of course) really narrow the inflation exactly.   Thanks

Shipper:

When you were on the scales did you have full holding tanks as well as water?  Interesting that you are fairly heavy on the rear axle compared to mine at 9140...I do not have double panes so that would account for some savings for sure.  I may go up a little in the back but I am leaving the front where they are at 68-70. The state of NH uses four corner scales for truck safety checks but they do not like doing "freebie" checks on RV's  I have been told.  Thanks.  Ron
