We found these sheets on Amazon and ordered a set to try to help solve the perpetual corner bed problems.   The sheets were made by a small company in South Carolina and we found them to be very well made indeed.   The fact that the set was specifically designed for a Winnie View made us wonder how it would work for our PC 2350.  The View has a curved slice corner whereas the PC corner is straight and slanted.  The good news is they worked very well for us and better than any other thing or method we have tried.   My wife was surprised at how well they worked and the high quality.   The slight difference in dimensions from the View to the PC didn't present a problem, at least for us.  The construction of the bottom of the top sheet is that it has elastic sewn around to keep the sheet in place and prevent slipping.  Read the full description on Amazon for more complete info.

Bob, I'm hoping I will not hit the antenna on anything, but since it is not higher than the AC unit, I expect I can stay out of trouble.  I wasn't concerned whether or not the KC antenna would give equal reception to the traditional crank-up antenna because I use the TV very little anyway. 

The stock converter/charger and Inverter setup is probably not optimal, but for a 30amp unit with only one AC I expect it to be adequate.  My needs are simple and I almost always have electrical hookup, so my inverter is rarely needed.  I was concerned about having enough inverter/battery capacity to run the refrigerator while driving (I don't like to run propane while driving), but we solved that by installing a 3-way refrigerator which runs on DC power without need of the inverter at all.

Thanks Ann for the info. I knew you could specify some of the equipment if you wanted to up or downgrade.
We currently have the KC antenna, and like I said, it works great on our all metal class B van. Just be careful and don't hit anything with it as we've heard from a very few Winnebago owners that they break off easily.
The converter was my biggest area of interest as it really needs to be a multistage in this day & age.

Again, you have a beautiful new unit there!

Only the factory will be able to tell you the models that will be installed in a particular unit when the build sheet is signed, but I can tell you what is in my unit which is a 2015 and built in July.  

A/C: 13500 BTU, Dometic model 641935CXX1C0, mfg 641935C751C0, prod# 936000724.  So far I'm pleased with it's capabilities in the heat.  It is loud, but I knew it would be, having experience with this before.  I don't love the new style distribution panel, but the only thing I'd like better is probably ducted air, which is not available.

Converter/charger: Parallax, Series 5300.  The inverter is Xantrex Pro XM1800.

Water pump: Shurflo 4008 RV Revolution.

My antenna is King Controls, but this is an upgrade that I asked for.  The stock antenna was the crank-up, which I didn't want.  They would not guarantee reception, as they had not tested a King Control antenna, but I was willing to take my chances and I'm happy with it.

Since we're not as yet owners, and I'm one to absorb all the info I can find out beforehand, I'd like to know a couple things.
What is the model number of the following equipment currently being installed at the factory:
The roof air, either the 13.5 or the 15 (Dometic). The 15 is an upgrade
The converter/charger (Xantrex) I know the inverter is a Xantrex 1800
The coach water pump (Shur-Flo), I believe it's one of their Revolution series

I see on the 2015's PC has finally went to the King Controls tv antenna from the old school Wineguard crank up. Only issue I've heard about the King Controls unit is that they break off easily if hit by something. We have the KC on our current RV and they work slick.

Thanks guys for any info.....

Hard for me to believe PC doesn't use stainless screws in this wet area. That's a disappointment  shrug

A big  ThumbsUp on both the recommendations above in Kansas. Been to both of them. Wilson lake is beautiful. Council Grove is in the Tallgrass area of the state. Lots of old west history there, and the COE reservoir is a good place to stop. Excellent laundromat there in town if needed.
Hays Kansas is a nice small college town to check out the downtown area. Victoria Kansas has a beautiful cathedral just off of I70 to check out.
Thanking everyone for their advice but due to unfortunate circumstances here at home I had to cancel out of the reunion.  Very disappointing but there is next year.   Hope everyone travels are safe and the reunion a success.

in DE Cape Henlopen State Park is pretty good, although like any place near the beach you might want to make a res.  I'd say come visit us, but we'll be heading to CO Sprngs. Enjoy your trip...
