I don't believe they are adjustable.  I think you can remove them by pushing in hard at the pivot point while turning past the stop in the "UP" position.  I would remove one and see if it can be adjusted once taken off.  Maybe you can adjust the angle, but surely not the height.

A good seat cushion would be the next consideration.  Just make sure you can still reach the pedals. Smile

If all is hopeless, you might be able to purchase off-set or adjustable armrests from the OEM supplier.  For our 2007 it was  Do you have the original seat tags?  PC-USA can help with your seat supplier.  Those armrests are not expensive.  They cost me $20 a piece (or was it for the pair?) when I ordered my 3rd captain seat by the entry door.  Keep in-mind that offset armrests would stick out forward when folded upward.

This discussion reminds me of my uncle who years ago bought an E250 maxi-cargo van for camping in.  He said the psi rating on the tires were 55 so he put in 55.  He eventually figured out that his load never called for such high psi.  At home it was around 30 and on trips he added I think 10 psi more.

BTW:  He still has that 1996 E250 maxi-cargo van, and it could pass as a new old-stock van.  You could perform surgury in it today.  He even keeps it up with wax and all.  Cargo vans typically get beat up starting on the first work day.

I thought PCUSA made the 2100 and 2400 with flip up/down hinged stair well covers.  If not, I would think they'd accommodate such a request.

Bob, Yes I have the booster where you describe.  You ask a very good question about on/off.  Next time I get our PC out from the valley here at home, maybe drive it to work, I will test the antenna....making sure the red light is on, and the antenna pointed towards the Sears/Willis tower.

During our next trip out west, I will have to give these tips a better try.  Thanks all.

Scanning once can take around 15 minutes.
Scanning is the function of the TV - Maybe the model TV that you have in the 2007 is inherently slow in scanning.
Interesting.  The main TV in our PC is a digital Samsung that I bought in 2007 from Abt.  In the past year we bought two new Seki TVs from Sears, and they both take the same 15 minutes scanning for channels.  Maybe they take longer than 15 minutes.

How do you know where to point the antenna before scanning?  Does your TV have a built-in signal strength meter?  None of our flat panel digital TVs have such a feature, but the analog-to-digital converters for our old tube TVs did, I suppose to help position the rabbit ears before scanning for channels.  I think that feature would be the answer to my antenna complaint.

I totally disagree with Ron about the antenna. It is NOT a pain to set up, does not take long at all and the reception that we have encountered is great with the Winegard antenna.
I wonder why we have totally different experiences with the antenna.  What am I doing wrong?  How do you get it right the first time you scan?  Scanning once can take around 15 minutes.  After the second try 30 minutes later, we lower the antenna and put in a DVD.

Maybe it is the places we stay.....too remote or too many trees, rocks, etc. for digital signaling.  Admittedly we don't stay in heavily populated areas.

I finished my beds, the quilt project is so nice looking.  How do I post a photo?
Like a pro.  No, a pro would not do that good.  Like an expert.

I am a new member who is about to order my first RV - a PC 2350.

You got connected at the right time, before ordering your PC.

You will get a variety of opinions on the slide out, and the 2350 in general.

We've owned a 2350 since 2007 which has no slide out and we love that about it, but most people love the current-day slide out which includes the fridge & a couch.  Admittedly the rear corner bed is not ideal, but if you want to sleep together as a couple on a permanent bed and need a short rig, that is the trade-off.

We love the thermal window option to control heat on hot days, cold on cold days, and is more quiet inside whether on the road or in a noisy campsite or roadside.

The only feature I literally hate is the roof top antenna, something I would "never" get again.  Since the country went digital the year after our purchase, the antenna is rediculous to set up.  After a half hour of pointing then scanning, pointing elsewhere then scanning again, we always give up.  That is worth the trouble only if you never move your motor home.  We love both our TVs with DVD players, and the RV is cable ready for when campsites offer CATV.  Between DVD entertainment and CATV, that is plenty.  Our roof could do without so many holes and the 1.5 pounds of caulk.  That roof top space would be much better utilized with a large solar panel.  Not to mention the rattling the antenna does while driving.  Honestly I don't understand why that antenna is still being installed.

As you can tell, I have a real problem with the antenna.  Smile

Thanks for those tips!

Irene and I can't wait to get back out that way later this season.  Actually we are thinking Glacier, Cascades, Rainier, Olympic, and some other NPs.  We debate if we should leave the Jeep home this trip.

Steve & Aleece,

I love these pictures.  I wished we had build pics.

That one picture shows very nicely, the massive size of the overhead dinette cabinets, and the head room. Smile

The other picture shows the lost space behind the galley drawers that every PC has.  Cry
I did THIS to recover that space.

Well wishes with your new upcoming PC.

Ron on one hand you say once you got sick and slept on the dinnette and on the other you say you could never sleep alone, Which is it?
We sleep together all the time, except a few nights during that one trip when I got very ill and didn't want to give my misery to my wife.

There is always an exception to every rule....right?

Maybe I should have said "with rare exception", but then the questions and implications would pour in, like...Do you fight often?

Ron, do you have new storage locations for these images that are missing?

I just cleaned up the initial post.  All is well again.

We have what you describe as the earlier "Box" awning.  I happen to like it.  Go figure I have to be different all the time.

As others described, our 2007 PC came with the brackets inside the big documentation pouch.  I mounted them myself to the rig.  This way there is no need for ropes and stakes.  But as you suspect, the door will swing into that pole.  I "bunge cord" the door to the pole to keep the door open.

I like the look the box awning offers, lacking those vertical awning tracks.  I also like to open the awning just a foot or two to provide shade and rain protection on that side of our rig.  I assume you can do that with the latest electric awning as well.  With slider windows, rain protection is more an issue.  Being partially open without poles, the door can open and close without interference, and the wind won't play games with the awning either.

The process for fully opening the awning is not as hard as shared higher.  At least not for me at 5'-11" tall.  I open the awning low enough for me to pop the arms out, which is maybe 2/3 open.

Admittedly there is nothing nicer than the push of a button, but I've grown used to my awning buddy.  And when there is a wind driven rain, I can lower the awning quite low (being watchful of the entry door), and even at a steep angle to the rear for water to run off instead of collecting up top.  My point is that the box awning is not "all" bad.  It has little bennies.
