Ron D.: I called Michelin on that very question and they had a very quick answer....take the heaviest corner and inflate both tires (double if rear) to that PSI.   Thanks
Thanks for the confirmation.

So it is "Essential" to get each corner weighed, not the axle.

Can a truck stop scale weigh individual corners?  Where does one go to get this done?

When I had a 2010 model 2350 the fresh water tank was under the bed at the rear, passengers side. The gray tank was under the fresh water tank also on the passengers side. The black tank was on the drivers side. On my 2012 model 2552 the black and gray tanks are switched as the toilet has moved from the drivers side to the passengers side of the center line. The toilet has to be over the tank used as the black tank. The fresh water is mid way under the passsengers side bed.
If you look at all the layouts you will see the black tank changes by where the toilet is located. You can tell this by looking at the capacity of each tank. PC only uses two tanks, the one 35 gal. that fits under the passengers side behind the axle and a smaller 23 gal. tank the fits under the sani-con on the drivers side. The fresh water tank changes size based on the layout.
Yes indeed.  Good explanation Tom.

With our 2350, most of the fresh water ends up in the gray tank below it.  At least the weight doesn't shift around much with water usage.

Ron, Each tire on an axle must have the same pressure.  Barry
That's what I figured.  Thanks Barry.

So whatever the highest psi is needed on any one rear corner, all for rear tires get that same high psi regardless.  ThumbsUp

I do have a question on tire pressure.  Maybe it was already discussed, but is a lot to read through.

If one corner is heavier than the other adjacent corner, would you have different psi for each corner?  Or do they recommend putting the same psi per front pair and same psi for all rear tires?  I know the fronts are most sensitive to unmatched psi.

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

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.
