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

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.

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.

My wife always says I am on the computer too much.

I noticed a week ago that my post-total was nearing 1000 so I was keeping track this past couple days.

Today May 15th, 2012, this is post 1000.  Yikes!
I was the 5th person to join the forum a week after it was initiated on January 7th 2009, but even so, Yikes!

Just sharing this experience as a "possibile" contribution.

In 2007 with a brand new PC,  the first cold night was spent at Brainard Lake, CO (10,300 elevation) so we wanted to use the furnace, but it didn't work.  In despiration I removed the outside access panel and noticed a switch.  I flipped it and the furnace worked perfectly and has ever since.

Maybe you too have a hidden switch that simply needs to be flipped.

Just a caution about the furnace.  Do NOT EVER, NEVER run the furnace with the access panel removed.  It sucks the LP exhaust right inside through the ducts.  If your PC is older and the detector goes off with the furnace running, it is possible the foam seal has deteriorated and the exhaust is getting sucked inside.

Tom, that is excellent data for a 2552 owner.   ThumbsUp
A "Helpful Ckicky" for you.

I keep procrastinating doing that.  Each year we head out, I promise myself to get the rig weighed, but it unravels quickly.
I recall the door sticker on our 2007 2350 (no slide out) states 60 rear, 65 front.  But I add 5spi more all around to be extra careful because the tires still look like they could use some more air.....even more than 5 psi.
1752  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2350 Rear Storage on: May 14, 2012, 09:44:46 am
I think you are right about that.  My 41 gallon fresh water tank lays against the rear bumper.  That of course is not ideal for over-all vehicle handling when full of water.  It is easy to conclude that is why I needed to have some suspension upgrades to correct some handling concerns.

I think the newer design turns the tank 90 degrees and is mounted against the bathroom wall which sacrifices the depth of the compartment.  The storage door is then slid rearward where the tank used to be.  The area to the right by the rear tires gets utilized by the furnace.  The end result is the fresh water tank is placed near the center line of the rig and more forward.  That is much better for weight distribution, but sacrifices significant rear storage to achieve it.  I also wonder how well it fills.  I have read of some "burping" issues where air gets trapped and then the water can't get into the tank without using a filler thingy.

I wish someone with a newer 2350 would "check" me on my accuracy.

Here is a picture of a 2012 2350.  Note the locations of the water filler door, the main storage door, and furnace service door.



I wish I had a better picture of my 2007, but note the water filler door is rearward and the storage door is forward.  My furnace is on the other side of the motor home.  I do not have burping issues when filling the fresh water tank because the tank is right up against the filler door.

I just measured my 2007 2350 storage.  It won't be helpful for you k9aeg, but may be for others considering an older 2350.

Lower section: 36w x 16d x 8h
Middle section: 42w x 36d x 11h
Top section: 51w x 44d x 5h

Door Opening 34w x 22h (door height is less than the over-all compartment height of 24)
Keep in-mind that I added an accumulator tank and pump cover that takes up some room.  Most won't have but the water pump alone, out in the open.
In the main middle section, far right, you can see the two drain valves for the fresh water plumbing.

I love it too.  Very Clean Factory-Like Installation.  Great work with the project and the write-up ther bobander!  Here's a "Helpful Clicky" for you.

Do you recall the cost of Velvac mirrors with the integrated turn signals?  I wonder if you could buy them a  lot cheaper through PC-USA than through other suppliers.
