My father was in WW2, stationed in Hawaii after Pearl Harbor, a Navy Postmaster sargent.  He never saw any action.
His older brother in WW2, was infantry in Europe, stories of hidding in foxholes with shells going off all around.
My father-in-law in WW2 was infantry in France....stories of bullets wizzing past his ears, and then there were the ladies.
My father's younger brother was infantry in the Korean war.
My cousin retired from USAF, a chaplin.  He served in Vietnam.

On my mother's side, they were the eneny in Europe in WW2.
My mother's brother was a German sniper, for all we know shooting those wizzing bullets at my father-in-law.  After his second war wound, he was sent back injured and never heard from again.
My mother's brother-in-law was a radio repairman for the Luftwaffe, POW'd on the US side and made donuts for US troups till the end of the war.

My Mom's family were German farmers in WW2, living pretty much in isolation.  They never learned much about the war until long after it was over.  They scrammed when the Russians invaded.  They eventually came to the USA where my mother and father met in the mid 50's when their parents, my grandparents from both sides reunited from a pre-WW2 relationship in Germany.

My siblings and I never served in the Armed Forces.

I never had the honor of serving our country in that manner.  I turned 18 in 1976, a few years after the draft was over.  As a young man in love, I quickly got married, worked a job, and bought a house, never considering to serve our country.  As the years have passed, I have paid more attention to the world around me, the history of mankind, and especially US history and it's contribution in maintaining order in this world, During my adulthood I have grown to appreciate...Greatly Appreciate what our veterans have contributed so that I could raise a family and live out my life in the greatest place in all the world, in peace.

To Me Every Day Is Memorial Day.  To Every Veteran, I Thank You.

Wow #3 ???  Gradygal, what are you doing for next year?  Something totally custom?   rolling on the floor
I love reading these posts.  It's good to see our PC family enjoying life in so many different ways.
BTW:  PC-USA offered the 2950 the rear twin bed, no rear slide, last year or maybe 2 years ago.  What length will yours be?
I always thought it would be cool to have one like that made to the longest length of 30.5 feet, but have a walk-around queen bed with the pillows against the rear wall.
I can't consider it because of storage & financial limitations at home, but I can dream.

Here is the older 2950 shown with the old style front slide out.  The slideout today would inclide the fridge.


Here is the 2910 graygal references.

Shshsh......... Quiet.........If my wife finds out I am the #1 poster here, my laptop will get confiscated.  No posting czar decals, no unexplainable money.  Nothing that can track me back here.

He gives good advice too, just like you.
But not all my advise is good.

Barry, you bring up a very good point about mixing different battery types during a shore-power charge.....or any charging source for that matter.

keelhauler,

Just be sure there is not a current drain when leaving that switch on.  If left unattended/unmonitored, it could draw more amperage than a solar collector can surpass.  Especially on days where the collector does little, and then evenings combined.  The relay it trips does consume power.  But you probably have learned that already.  Just making sure.

That constant-on switch would be ideal when plugged into shore power.

The few times I mentioned we don't poop in our motor home, I always end up regretting that I brought it up.  I have to learn to keep quiet about that one.
Well, we don't poop in our motor home either, we use the toilet in the back; we also pee in the toilet instead of somewhere else in the motor home.   Grin  Grin  Grin
Really, we love ya Ron!

Bob, you just kill me.   Smile

Ron, after looking at all the models, we (read DW) have made up our mind on a 2552 or a 2910D, and we've started to make a list of things we would like to have and things we would like to have taken out.
Good for you.

We selected the 2350 back in 2007 for two reasons.
1) It is the biggest thing that can fit in our garage, with only inches to spare in all 3 dimensions.
2) It offers a permanent double bed so my wife and I can sleep together.

Everyone has different priorities.  Also it seems most people with motor homes in general, stay in private or state run places where almost any size rig works well.  We camp most often in more primatve places like BLMs, national forests and national parks & monuments, all where camp sites can be more challenging for the largest rigs.

I have to say that a longer walk-around double or queen bed model would be ideal for us, if it would fit in our garage.  And PC never made such a thing without a slide out.

Ron, since we always dump before heading home and keep water in the bottom of the bowl, we do not need to worry about gas build up. Does the 2007 PC have the clean out spray for the tanks like the current models?
Yes our 2007 2350 has the flush hookup for both tanks.

The few times I mentioned we don't poop in our motor home, I always end up regretting that I brought it up.  I have to learn to keep quiet about that one.

And Ron, you know some stuff, but in my and my wife's case, one of the main reasons we like RV travel is NOT having to walk to a campground bath house on a dark rainy night to poop.
 I realize many people think we are nuts when it comes to this one.  I never strongly advise anyone follow our method, only sharing our method as an alternative.  I wonder if our method works for us because nature calls in that manner to both of us just once or twice per day (never night) so it's easy to incorporate our twisted ways.

I think Gary has been focused on a 2350.  If true, consider this.  The 2350 has the bigger tank assigned to black tank duties given the proximity between toilet and tank.  The smaller tank is for everything else.  You would never get near filling the black tank during normal usage so feel free to add whatever amount of fresh water you think best in there just after a dumping.

You'll be flooding the black with the gray whenever primitive camping, but as shared by others, you want something inside to begin with, just as not to develop a poop cone.

Or do as we do and poop elsewhere.  For us it has to do with sewer gas, storing the motor home in the garage at home under our master bedroom.  No poop, no gas.  That is after a bleach cleaning and flush at the end of every season.  No odors of any kind.

while looking on different sites and reading different forums I have seen people saying that the more water you have in the black tank, the better it is to drain.  What I haven't seen though is how much water to have in there,
Flood the gray into the black, then drain.  It is very easy to do that with the Sanicon setup.

It seems those very thin edge-lit LCD TVs of recent years uses much less power, opperating much cooler as well.  No concern of heat build-up, and much less of a battery drain when running off the invertor.

The thin edge lit LED back-light technology uses many less LEDs then standard LED back-light LCD TVs.  Either LED back-lit technology will consume much less power than conventional flourescent back lit LCD TVs.

I wonder which of the 3 LCD TV types (flourescent back lit, LED back lit, LED edge lit) are most robust for the harsh vibration motor home application.

Regardless of RV manufacture, wind-driven rain from the perfect angle can get water inside from around the slide.  If wind gets under the topper awning and blows it upward, rain follows.  The seals between the house and the slide do a great job, but not always able to under rare extreme conditions.

Inspect your slide seals all around, looking for distortion and lodged debris.  A small stick can distort a seal, especially when the slide is pulled in.  Strong swirling wind can place debris (and water) in the strangest of places.
