MagnaShades all the way.  I have had two sets and they look and work great.   They now offer a perfect color match option or have a specific design imprinted.  Company is superb to work with and they are based in NC.  Go directly thru the company and you will safe a few bucks vs's thru PC

This months MotorHome magazine came with their comprehensive Dingy Towing Guide, I would suggest all get thier hands on this valuable resource that lists all cars and which ones can and can not be towed and what special instrcutions apply to tow them.  IMO Jeep is the clear winner in the dingy catagory since they are easy to tow with no special needs and the odometer does not record the towed miles. Keeping that tow bar no more than 3"  (level is ideal) out of being level is crtical to good towing.  best of luck

I am very sorry to hear of your disapointment with your new coach.   I have had two PC's but have never oredered one custom so can not pass judgement.   I would say that with the purchase of my 8 coaches over the years I always "hold back" some of the final dollars due so that if anything should go wrong at least I have some leverage to make right.  All RV manafacturers are at capacity at this time as they cranked out over 435,000 units in 2016, much of the usual QC has gone by the way side as they are leaving alot of the final fixes up to the dealers.   I hate to see PC go the way of the rest of the industry and not maintain their attention to customization and the small details.  Getting everything in writing and going over everything multiple times is the lesson here I am afraid.  Take a breath and enjoy your coach.

jatrax....We have all been in your shoes to a certain extent at some point.  Relax and go with the flow.  When you get a chance and really read the manuels a couple of times everything will begin to sink in and you will get into a nice routine.  If you are of average size I often never put the jacks down if site is flat.  Best of luck.   RAG

jatrax....I would let atleast 5-8 lbs out of your tires, having the tires a max really makes the coach pound and unless you are really loaded very heavy you are well within limits running a little less pressure.   best of luck

jatrax.....Congrats on the new coach.  Go easy and break that big V-10 in easily.    I hope you are west of the very bad weather?!  Enjoy.  R.A.G.

This is great news Two Hams.....I think you have had enough small issues for one trip so carry on,  be careful and enjoy your new coach!

Two Hams....I am sorry I have no answer for your situation.   I would be very careful about forcing anything since there are a lot of plastic parts in there that i am sure will break very easily. Does the bowl hold water?  I wonder if the slide is just not hanging up on the rubber seal?  did you keep fluid (antifreeze) in the bowl all winter?  The seals will dry out

The armless Carefree awnings are very cool and you do not constantly wack your head on the sliding arms used on PC's awnings.   The wind/rain sensor is all so nice since there is really nothing that holds the armless awaning donw if a heavy wind came up.  i have the armless carefree on my Renegade and it works very well. good luck

Doneworking.....there is no doubt the m-pump hangs out there some and I am sure there is some significant movement back to the coupling.  I would find it hard to believe that there would be enough flex/pressure to break all of the ears on the coupling.  My bet is at some point you backed up into a banking and the pump hit and that is what broke the ears; happened to me once in my back yard and I never felt a think.  Week later saw a small puddle under the coupling.  I may be wrong but I am just saying!  Good thing is PC has the new pump coupling and the job is very easy.  Best of luck

Congrats GradyGal!  Our needs and wants change all the time and while we have our good health and some dollars in the pockets why not try something else!   Newmar makes a super coach.  What model did you purchase?  If you see a big Renegade Verona coming down the road  just give me a wave.  Like you, there are  aspects of the PC that will always be with you, I miss the ability to pick the phone up and call Kermit  the most.    Be safe.   R.A.G

I have had one PC with and one without dual pain windows, I can say there is not a significant difference is actual cabin noise reduction with dual pains but I do think they are worth the money for other reasons especially if you are going out in cooler temps like in the fall.   I do have some concern about the extra wait and that was the main reason I did not get them on my 3100.  You would not have the weight issue in a 2350 especially if you are going with the E-450 and you should be doing that.   best of luck and congrats.  R.A.G.

Yes Ron, work was done on my beloved 3100 (no longer have).

I once had to replace the black tank gate valve and let me tell you it was one pain.   The entire plumbing system was built from the tank out and the tolerances are much closer than you might think!   There are flanges/nipples as I recall on the valve assembly and getting the 3 "round thin gaskets to stay on each side of the valve assembly so that they make up correctly is a real PIA!   You just do not have enough play in  the piping to spread apart enough to get the new valve in while keeping the gaskets where they need to be, forcing it to much and you will break a joint down the line for sure.   After hours of trying different approaches to keep the flimsy round gaskets in place I was successful.  At one point I was going to merely cut all of the piping out and start from the valve with all new pipe like how they put it together at the factory.  You would think it would all be cut and dry  (30 min. job)but I found it difficult.  You can service the electric activate mechanism with out getting into the actual slide valve and I would recommend that approach unless of course the valve is bent or something.  Good luck
