Glad you are making some headway with the 2350 and its handling issues.  If you look back on this board you will see a great deal of discussion surrounding my "go around" with Ford about getting my 2551 aligned...I ultimately paid out of pocket the $140 because Ford would do nothing to help the cause and after calling 7-8 dealerships some that were Ford Truck certified and being told they would not work on the coach I gave up and went to a private truck center.  I never thought to bug Kermit about the issue.  i do think it should be the coach manafacturer that should make sure the front ends are right when they leave the factory but I do not see that ever happening.  Best of luck.

Recently changed the oil  in my 2012 and only put 6 qts. in and the stick showed nearly exactly on the upper dot on the stick.  Reading everyones posts I added additional 1/2 quart tonight  and and it now shows above the high dot so I honestly think 6 quarts is really capacity.  Thanks

Make sure the dealership understands that the PC is only 10'1" tall...I once had and issue getting mine in for service untill I brought to the service managers attention that the Fed-X trucks waiting to be serviced in his yard were in fact taller than the PC.  He then immediately scheduled my coach.  Many dealerships are just afraid of RV's and take the quickest and easiest way out.....the rig is to tall.  Best of luck!

Bob was right!  There are many custom  settings on the new surround sysytem and somehow (me for sure!) something had been clicked off.  There is test click that nicely runs thru all of the speakers so I new the speakers worked so then it was going thru and putting all settings back to normal.  thank you Bob for helping me out.  Ron

 I think you are on to something Bob since I was in there a couple of weeks ago messing with the settings and I bet I clicked something off.  Will go in to the settings tonight and see what I can find.  Thank you very much for your help.  Ron

The chassis radio transmits sound from the two front door (Ford) speakers and the two larger white speakers in the bedroom area (front and rear).  I get no sound out of the two small speakers mid ship with chassis Ford)  radio.  My 2551 utilized the two front speakers (small ones) the two mid ship ones and the woofer, 5 speakers in total from the surrond sound system.  On the 3100 i am only getting sound out of 3 speakers, that can not be right can it?   Thanks

Before I call Kermit wanted to check if any of you folks can help me?  I can not get any sound out of the two middle speakers ( one in the kitchen area and the second by the dinette)  from the surround sound system in my new 3100.  DVD, CD, TV, nothing comes out...the two front speakers and the woofer work fine.  I know I got sound out of them at one time so something has come disconnected.  Any ideas would be appreciated...thanks

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
