Anyone want to cover a trip they've made in their PC, a campground visited, or a recipe cooked in their PC over on our blog? I'd like to start having weekly guest bloggers on the PC blog to discuss primarily PC-related camping topics. I'm not looking for how-to's just yet. I'd like to start with adventures if possible, and work outward from there. We would need anywhere from 500 to 1500 words and 3-10 photos, I think. Links out to your own blog or website are welcome.

Hello Bob,

Sorry to read what you posted and see the pictures of your light. I hope as mentioned it was a fluke.
We have all LED lights in our Cruiser and think they are very bright. Have you or anyone on the forum come across other lights that are not so bright?
We would like to switch out some of the lights mounted under the cabinets and replace them with something warmer. The LED lights we currently have put off a very BRIGHT white light.

Any thoughts or recommendations you or anyone else can share would be appreciated.

Thank you,
Dave

In my recent post I needed advice on batteries and now I solved my problem with batteries and was able to replace them and save $$$.  Found a place In Newark Delaware called TBS Tri-State Battery. these people were knowledgeable and save me a few dollars.  I dealt with Sarah and Josh and they were very personable and helpful in choosing the right batteries for the coach and chassis.  They are online and they do ship batteries.  They cost $109.95 each and the right size for the coach to fit in the 13x14 tray.  They are already charged and ready to go.  So if anyone is near or going thru Newark DE I or MD would recommend this business.  I also saved on sales tax in DE .  I will get $45.00 back when I turn in  the dead batteries.
Their address is 107 Albe Dr., Newark DE  19702 phone is 800 852-9700 and they also have a branch in Belair MD and Gambrills, MD.  Batteries I purchased were Deka Marine Master for the Coach and Deka Gold for the chassis. Coach batteries  are similar to Astro-Lite Group 27 Deep Discharge Marine Battery that Kermit told me about. 
Now to get my sons to mount them this weekend so we can get ready for camping season. thanks to all for advice in previous post Smile

Yes, it was probably a fluke and will never happen again, and we are over-reacting by replacing all the tubes and not leaving the lights on when away.  But, after seeing what could happen, we are kinda forced into doing something to be sure it doesn't happen again.

Please replace that flaky bulb you mentioned.

Holly: I believe the info is current.  The request form indicates an expiration of 10/31/2016 I don't think the installation of the switch would be a big deal at all for the Ford dealer.  There is already a space for the switch on the dash and from what I understand the switch is just plugged into the module behind the dash.  I'll post results when I get it done.

Bob/Ron:  Thanks for the info.

WOW! I am so glad you were there to catch that. One of our bulbs is flaky and works when it wants to. Hopefully your bulb was a fluke but we'll be checking all our fixtures. Thanks for the heads up.

We looked at 2910 and 2552 PCs at the factory.  We were impressed with the quality and liked the looks. However, I am 6"3 190#s and could not fit in the shower, in the beds or stand up in the unit without hitting my head.  Very disappointed.  We went over to Nexus.  We like the Viper. I had no issues with the size of the inside.  I walked the roof on two units and found one corner was depressed which would cause puddles. It was right at the sealant of the front cab. The sealant was also cracked, maybe due to flexing. The other unit had some cracked sealant at the front cab and there was paper/tape still attached probably from the painting of the unit. I pulled it and some sealant came off. To me the roof is the most critical part of any RV and these two items I saw in models give me concern. Anyone have any other RV suggestions? We do not want a class c, b+is ideal, smaller A like a Tiffin Breeze possible.

THIS IS NOT A CRITICISM OF PHOENIX USA, just an observation of an equipment failure beyond their control.

I wanted to pass along my recent experience with one of the fluorescent light fixtures in my 2010 2551.  One of the bulbs failed in a way that melted the plastic fixture and the ceiling material underneath.

During our seven week trip in Arizona I noticed that the bulb in one of the ceiling fixtures would flicker when first turned on and the ends were getting dark.  I figured that it would simply quit working and then I would replace the bulb.  A few days later, I smelled melting plastic and quickly turned it off, the bulb was still working.  The pictures show that there was a hot spot at the end of the bulb that burned the reflective paper and melted the plastic housing.  The heat was also melting the ceiling material.

I believe that this could have resulted in a serious situation if we were gone from the RV.  I have never seen a fluorescent bulb fail like this and consider this to be an unusual failure mode.  However, I wanted to pass this info on so that others will pay closer attention to failing fluorescent bulbs.  My PC is 5 years old with 31,000 miles and many hours of light fixture use.  I am going to replace all the fluorescent bulbs at this time, they are available online for about $2 each.  Another possible solution is to replace with LED fixtures.  We also no longer leave any fluorescent fixtures on when we leave the RV.

Pax,

The front half of a 2552 is identical to a 2350-E350 as we own.  Like gl1500, we have a 3rd captain seat in lieu of the euro chair.  Our first grand child is due in late June so when it comes time, we plan to do as Bob Mahon did and bolt a "D" ring like this to the floor under the seat, to use as a tether point for a child seat.



OH! I see gl1500's pictures show a "D" ring on the floor, next to the base plate of the pedestal, opposite the cab.

The sound deadening seems to be a spray on similar to an undercoating. The price is $40 per running foot.
