It is all ways fun to think about the perfect coach!  I really think you have hit the high lights as far as nice features that you get with the PC.  Coming down from a large Class A I found the 2551 just a little to tight and traded up to the 3100 and love the layout that is super for two people.  I would like to see both twin beds longer like 76" would be perfect.  While  the E-450 is a work horse I do worry that the chassis is nearly max'ed out most of the time and for one I would like to see a PC offered on the F-450 chassis.  I find the E-450 cab noisy when really calling on it.  I would like to see more  sound insulation in the floor, doors, etc and insulation in the front cap.  Rattles bug me and I am constantly on the hunt for something that is making noise and more rattles seem to pop up as soon as I fix one.  All manufacturer's should take more time to rattle proof coaches. 
212  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Towing set up on: April 06, 2015, 09:09:56 pm is right on with the Roadmaster tow bar set up.  On my new Jeep I went with wireless aux. lights because I did not want cut into the complicated electric system.  So far they are working well but it is one more thing to set up.  I use a Brake Buddy portable unit and it works great but if I had and extra $1500 I would go with one of the new under the seat units.  All the brands of towing and braking equipment are excellent  and you really can not go wrong.  Good luck
213  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: PC Quick Look on: April 02, 2015, 02:03:40 pm are right on!   You have the exact same (model and year)Jeep's as I do.  I find the Cherokee Trailhawk tows much better compared to my old 06 Liberty diesel.  How do you find them in comparison?

joseph....I hear you on purchasing new vehicles..... but with that said I have to say the new Jeep products are getting better and better in my opinion.  Having owned 8 Jeep's I can honestly say the two 14's I own now are both super vehicles.  The problem is many of the new vehicles are no longer able to be towed four down or you have to pull fuses, start the vehicles up every couple hundred miles, or use transmission pumps. Jeep products are with out a doubt still very easy to tow with no specials requirements.   A used Wrangler would be super but I would make sure  it has the 3.6L and not the 3.8L engine.  Best of luck.

You might want to take a look at the new little Jeep Renegade.  They are starting to show up at dealers now.  I looked at a Trailhawk model yesterday and they are very cool looking and I bet they will tow nicely.  The automatic transmission models can not be towed four down but the 6 speed manuels can be towed four down.

Joeseph:  There is no idle adjustment at all on the Sprinter and they do not and should not be idled longer than a few minutes.  Yes, the old diesels use to idle all night long but not any longer for air quality equipment has changed everything and that is a good thing.....

I bet Kermit is working on something despite his claim to the contrary.  The F series would be a super option for a little longer PC.  I would be interested in such a model.   Wait and see I guess.

Ldjit......congrats on the placement of  your order for a PC.  Like you I was tired of  the big Monaco
Coaches (2) and moved to PC.  I started with a 2551 and moved up to the 3100.  I will celebrate  3 years in May with the 3100 and I have had zero issues .  Any questions I have ever had I just call Kermit and he is aways super  and goes out of his way to help.

TomH is on the money...between 8-9 for the most part.  If you want to do 55 MPH MPG might go up some.  3100 is a very nice model that is perfect for a couple.   Good luck.

Having not spend a lot of time in the "sunshine state" I cannot comment much in regards to condensation other than I am sure it can be a problem but enough to really feel wet sounds like a lot of H2O.  Over the years I have learned the hard way that seams may look tight but are not and it does not take much to allow water to get thru. and travel in many directions.    I would go over all of those clearance lights with some clear silicone, I would run a new bead of self leveling chaulk along the  seam between the roof and the B+ cap and see if that makes any difference.  Is it wetter after a heavy rain?  water leaks are tough because the leak can be "upstream" and then gets into a channel and who knows where it can ultimately show up.  regardless you do want to find the source since moisture in the wrong places in any RV is not good.  Best of luck.  Ron G.

Very sad that the original owner has advanced cancer and  this situation has forced the sale of the company to a large venture capital group.  Not many of the old family owned RV makers left in the marketplace.  Kermit better not sell out on us!!!
223  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Battery switch on dash on: January 22, 2015, 08:48:23 pm is my understanding that you must hold the white switch up for some time before you attempt to start the truck.  Merely flicking the switch will not anything.  Hope this helps?  Thanks, Ron
