Am a big believer in those Command Strips.  Wasglad when they came out with various strengths and water proof ones.  I, too, am leery to put holes in the walls --fearing hitting wires or having something pull out making a bigger hole. 

     Even put strong C-Strips on the bathroom door.   ☺️

     Liked the IKEA seeing out bars.

I enjoy reading all the clever tips!

Glad you found a better position for the monitor. When our unit was new, it came mounted on the
ceiling, which felt really unsafe to crane the neck to look at it and eyes off the road! 
   took it to a local rv shop and gad it moved to eye level on left side of dash .
Wonderful!  Now all it takes is just shifting eyes to the left and back!
   Was not a major operation---easy for them to do. Guess there was plenty of cord/ wire.
    Just an idea that may help someone.

4  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: TOWING WITH OUR SPRINTER 2350 on: May 27, 2015, 01:30:06 pm
I tow a 2001 Honda CRV with a brake assist system behind the PC Sprinter 2400 (2010).
It is useful when "sitting" for a few days or more, but there is a difference in fuel savings when not towing.  I, like some others, am not motivated to unhook and secure things for a trip when not towing.

Hi All,
   Has anyone switched out the "old" fluorescent ceiling light fixtures for the new LED fixtures?

It seems I read that in one message, but cannot locate it even using the Search.
 
   Considering it, but would like your input.
 
 Thanks!

What is this fuse for?   Has Mercedes put out an official notice on this?  Thank you.
Still must find why my Sprinter battery (under driver's feet) has a slow drain.   
It is a mystery.  Do not know where to go....Dodge?  Mercedes?  An auto electric shop?
Any input will be welcomed.   Do not want to have mega-hours on work order....just want it fixed so it can
be used.   Yikes...
Thanks again,
LRS

The switch near the floor by side door....Store or Use.....is on when shore power is used.   ??

I read that someone mentioned a switch near the driver for starting the engine using coach battery power....do
not think it is on the Sprinter.  ???
11  Main Forum / General Discussion / Sprinter question on: January 02, 2014, 12:56:05 pm
Hi, Guys,
   Saw the electrical posting for another model.  Does anyone have this for the Sprinter?  I have a 2400.
Got all new batteries in Sept.  Drove 2000 miles and all worked fine.   Battery dead. Had to use key to open
the door.  Put a charger on it and it worked after a few hours, but this morning would not turn on.

Interstate batteries...
 Could not see anything on....on dash....to drain it.

It has been on shore power since the Oct. trip.    The inverter on/off panel is on wall behind driver seat.
The converter (I think...with fan) is below the fridge.  Can hear it at night.   
Never saw breakers others mentioned....different model...as under their bed.

If anyone has an idea, please...

Would the inverter (1800 model) draw on the truck battery if the wall switch is off?    Have hardly ever used it.
THanks!
Linda

A black towel or two also works.   Smile

Makes sense, even to me.   Afterward, the auto mechanic said they must've been on the
same electrical circuit---the burned out bulb had broken the circuit.   

I am just glad two problems have been solved with one "fix."    Smile

Thanks for replying.   L.
15  Main Forum / General Discussion / Steps and outside door light on: June 28, 2013, 04:46:39 pm
Well, being basically ignorant of electrical stuff this mystery was solved anyhow.  Yay!!!

Problems:  The step would not stay down when using the wall switch by the door. 
                The outside light would not work when using its switch. 

I replaced the bulb in the outside light fixture and wow...they both work now! 

(I had called the factory and checked the fuse...under the Sprinter's passenger seat...but the fuse
was ok.)

 The two switches were unlabeled, but now I know that the white switch works the light and black works the step!
Yay.  Dumb luck.
