RichardP:  Congrats on the purchase of your new 3100!  Please let us all know how you like the coach on and off of the road.  Does your unit have any of the 2013 changes on it?   Thanks, Ron

Barry and others:

I utilize the "J" style locking pin (and find it to be the best style) to take the movement out of the hitch but please be aware that the hitch reciever that PC is using now does not have the extra hole for the small tip on the J hook to go into...I think they are using Draw Tight hitches now.  I had to drill the second hole myself on my new  late production 2012 3100 and trust me that stock does not make for easy drilling so check your reciever for that second hole!  best of luck.  Ron

Having purchased both professional photography and advanced web design I can tell you that many thousands of dollars (well into the 6 figures!) can be spent very fast to bring the quality up to the level Ron is talking about.  Every cent that is spent on the front end gets added onto the back end otherwise called MSRP!  I will take the photography as is and gamble the color is right  or if I am really concerned  I would travel to see a coach in real life to make sure it is exactly what I thought it was before I pay a couple % points  more to cover marketing expenses.  Thanks

Spoke with Kermit F. today.  Sicnce the dome ligght works he new immediately it had to be where they tie the running board lights into the dome hot lead and that is done right by the drivers shoulder belt bracket behind the plastic facia.  Got my fingers in there tonight and sure enough I found the connection right where it was suppose to be and guess what a squeeze brought the lights to life.  Have to get in there now and really see what has pulled/loosened.  Kermit sure knows his product inside and out.

D and B:

Congrats on your new purchase.  On my 2551S I did all the mods that everyone is speaking about (except the trac bar) Bilstiens, helwigs front and rear, raodmaster steering damper, front end alighment.  I noticed some improvement but not really not as drastic as you may have thought.  The E-450 always just seemed to have a mind of its own, it would go down the road straight but it would just seem to float like the rear wheels were over powering the front.  The biggest difference I observed was dropping time pressure down from the 80/75 recommended to 72/68, the coach then handled much better and i got rid of most of the float sensation.  I will say the longer wheel base on my new 3100 makes a huge difference and with all the after market add ons now on it it drives like a dream.  I would say i think you could get by with the softer Bilstiens vs's the heavy duty ones that are stiff and I hope soften up some with a few thousand miles on them.  Best of luck and enjoy the coach.  Ron

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
