I looked at some 3100s and the dinette doesn't fold down into a bed. Is that true on all 3100s?

This winter our coach entry lock broke on our 2012 2551.  It was a trimark model 060-0650.  The plunger, made of white medal,  cracked and the door handle became inoperable and unable to pull the plunger back to allow the door to open.  My wife happened to be inside and I was outside.  She let me in through the cab door and I was able to take it apart so that we could continue using it with just the dead bolt.

Upon returning home, I did some research and found this to be a common problem.  Trimark does not sell parts and has actually discontinued this model and replaced it with Trimark model 060-1650.

Instead of putting more money into a Trimark lock I decided to upgrade with a Bauer EM Alsentis keyless entry lock.  I read many forums and this lock got high reviews.  It was not a plug and play replacement on the PC but installed very nicely after a few minor modifications.  The Bauer company was very supportive in answering all my questions and even sent me an extra gasket to use for installation.

Comparing the two locks the Bauer feels very solid and closes very nice.  The keyless entry is wonderful.  The only cons I have read about them is that batteries may only last three months.  However, you do get a considerable number of warning signs that the batteries are getting low.  Since we keep the PC in our garage I will remove the batteries when in storage.  

It also comes with a key override so I will always have a key handy incase the batteries fail on us.  I picked up one of these https://www.amazon.com/Master-Lock-5408D-Mini-Silver/dp/B0014EERFA/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1495398511&sr=8-1&keywords=mini+key+safe on clearance for $1 at one of our local discount shops.  I keep it hidden on the outside with a key to the coach, a key to the cab and our toad key.  It has saved us on a few occasions.

Hello everyone,

We just ordered a 2350 4x4 450 a couple months ago. We live in Oregon, my wife is retired, I'm still at it for awhile.
We enjoy back country camping, have owned several trailers over the years, still own at least 5 tents from wall tents to bivey sacks. Have camped off mountain bikes pulling trailers to owning a pack string of llamas. This is our first Motorhome. We spent at least a year looking for an ideal rig, and didn't find one! We will be making some major modifications to our 2350 once we get it.
I appreciate the forum and all it has to offer!

Doug

Mario,

Rest easy.  You have very good brakes on your E450 PC.  I never heard anyone upgrading their E450 brakes.  I even wonder if brake upgrades are available.

As others mentioned, just be sure to have trailer brakes that work right.

Now if you asked about upgrading your suspension, that is entirely different.  A lot of people including myself have had suspension upgrades done.

Had similar problem with previous 2010 2350.  Problem was loose connection inside back wall.  Cable from camera goes inside wall at top and connects to cable going to front.  Unscrew light next to cable and pull cable up tp check connection.  I pushed the connections together and taped them.  Corrected the problem for me

Yes, the trailer has 4 wheel braking system and the coach has a brake controller. I just don't want to go to the Ford dealership and  say that I want to install the severe brake system, when the unit already is built out with the severe brake set-up. The Tow-Haul works excellent, justmore safety

Born Free, Lazy Daze, Coach House, and Phoenix were all on my heavily researched list...and I decided on PC but voiced this very concern here last fall... that PC would change hands before I can order one later this year, or right after I buy ;-( 

I sure hope they hang on, selfishly for me to get a good product with some customization, and also for all of you current owners.

Tiffin Motor Homes is now making a class C on a Sprinter chassis. It has a high MSRP but no one ever pays that for one of Tiffin's units.

Sell, you can color me out of the loop, but after 20 years of RVing I can only ask, "why"?  Cheers

Hi Tom,

We ended up leaving the sink cover home because we never used it.  More recently I made something more useful to us, a reversible cutting board to fit in the same place, though not fully covering.


We do this for the stove covers.  They are silicone pot holders/trivets, sold at Walmart.  One placed on across both grates with the covers over it creates a snug fit which eliminates all stove-related rattling.  The pot holders/trivets also serve their designed purpose.  


We never have the covers in the storage slot when driving for fear they would rattle and possibly get damaged a little too.
