211  Main Forum / General Discussion / 3100 visits the scales on: June 11, 2012, 09:46:00 pm
Recently got my 2012 3100 onto a set of Cat scales.  Fresh water, fuel, and LP tanks were all full.  Food was about 1/2 packed, myself, 185 lbs; wife, 120 lbs; and the old Weimaraner 80 lbs were all  on board plus all the gear that I would ever need.  Coach has Bilstiens, Roadmaster steering damper and front and rear Helwigs stabilizer bars.  Front axle came in at 4460 lbs, 540 under max; drive axle came in at 9140, 460 under max.  Total coach weight was 13600, 900 under max.  According to Michelins charts the way I read them I should have about 68 lbs in the front and 72 lbs in the rear.  I have just that in the tires now and i must say the coach drives and handles like a dream, I think the 218" wheel base helps more than anything.  I thought she would come in a little less than 13600 but a 900 lb comfort range is not bad.  I have yet to hook up my Jeep Liberty diesel (4300 lbs) but i do not anticipate any issues.  Everyones comments input welcome.  I could throw a few things out to lighten the load but the Weimaraner has to stay!!   Thanks

Fuses are all OK, dimmer switch makes no differerence.  Have not heard anything back from Kermit as to where the wiring actually runs in the coach...any other ideas would be appreciated.  Thanks

I posted a couple of weeks ago that my running board lights were not coming on and then they all of a sudden they worked again so I forgot about them.  They are acting up again.  It has been raining for 5 days now here in NH so I have not had a chance to get my test light out to find out what is up but can anyone tell me where the fuse might be hiding?  Neither door activates the lights so I know it is just not a bulb out.  Thanks

Heinz R:

I had a rattle in my 2551 step that I just could not fix so I fabricated two curved tension arms out of 1" steel flat stock.  I drilled two holes in the fiberglass skirting opposite the top of each end of the stair and afixed the flat stock with some large washers and bolts to spread the pressure out over the fiberglass.  Where the flat stock touched the stair I placed to rubber stoppers (old shock asorber rubbers) that were fastenend thru the flat stock with small bolts that I counter sunk into the rubber.  I bent the flat stock just enough to place pressure thru the rubber stopper onto the top of the stair and it stopped it from rattling around.  I have a new PC now or I would take some photos, hope I have made sense?   Thanks

Obviously, Kemit and the staff at PC read and listen to what consumers have to say for my new 3100 has a nice little trap door cut into the bed plywood and you just reach in and turn the valve and the water drains  right out the bottom of the coach and the hose has to be atleast 3/8" so the draining process is very fast compared to the out side twist valve.  The 3100 came with a winterize anti freeze valve  as well, one less thing I have to add myself like  i had to do on my  2551.  This would be a very easy DIY project and just  leave the outside valve unattched.   Nice that PC is constantly making updates to the product line.     thanks

Congrats on making up your mind between the 2552 or 2910.  Having had a 2551S and moving up to the 3100 I can tell you the extra storage that you would get in either the 2552 or 2910 will be well appreciated!  I thought I could make a smaller coach work but I had to comprimise to much...I love the longer wheelbase on the 3100 and you would get on the 2910, ride is much better.  And please tell me that after you will have spend over 5 figures on your new coach that you will use the bathroom to its fullest capabilities!!??  Best of luck, ron

I would not put much more than a gallon plus your chemicals be very careful in regrads to the "cone" build up!!!  You are asking some great questions.  Thanks
221  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: furnace question on: May 14, 2012, 09:29:54 am

I honestly do not think there is anything wrong with the wiring or gas supply.  I had the exact situation with my new 3100 where both the heat strip and the furnance would come on at the same time; I have found that if I click thru the functions very fast and end up on the furnace setting just the furnace comes on.  I realize this is not very  scientific and I have yet to read the instructions completely for the thermostat  but it worked great for me all weekend.  I have yet to leave both the heat strip and the furnace on to see if perhaps the heat strip times out in a min. or two and just the furnace stays on.  I honestly think it is merely the way the digitial thermostat is programed.  Thanks

Ron D. and others.....I have all ready put Bilstiens on all four corners, and installed new front and rear Hellwig sway bars.  I must say the 3100 tracks much better compared to the 2551S; I really think the longer wheel base makes a huge difference and the extra weight of the 3100 makes for a better ride.  I have yet to tow my diesel Jeep Liberty so can not comment from that perspective.  Allis good otherwise.

Weather Tech mats are super.  A little pricey, but will last a life time and they are made in the USA!

Once again I am impressed with the PC product.  I have gone thru all of the systems on my new 3100 and I must say everything works exactly as it is suppose to!  Had some wood dust here and there, a couple of squaeks that I have fixed around the convection oven primarily, a little paint over spray on the exterior of one window, a wood chip/staple under the vinyl is going to stay I guess, some scratch marks in the ceiling material that I have brushed out for the most part, that seems to be it.  More importantly, no plumbing leaks, no slide leaks.... some extra added items were done to my complete satisfaction.  The E-450 of course runs like a charm and tracks perfectly.   I have read the horrific stories on various forums pertaining to new coaches that have 100's of issues and just shake my head.  I must say I have  had long lists my self with several motor homes of the past and I really  appreciate the quality control that PC must be utilizing for their coaches are ready to hit the road right out of the box!
