I too understand Kermit's reason to sell the company.  I commend him in selling it to another individual (or is it two people?) who will try to carry the PC torch, keeping it's legacy alive and well.

It will be interesting to see if the new company owners would consider offering an optional seamless "C" cap along with it's current day B+ cap to provide an over-head bunk which would be ideal for families and also a plus for models 2100 and 2400.  Bumping it up only to the height of the a/c unit would be enough.  Don't increase the over-all height, something similar to the Winnebago View here.

Ron...great idea but that View you show is practically 26' long at 11 1/2 high!  Probably increase the width as well.  Still, it will be interesting where the company evolves.

Ron D.,

We ordered our 2350 without an awning due to the large arms that were going to interfere with our rear swing storage/BBQ box. We will put an awning on like yours. Can you tell us the manufacture and model, and length? I'm also curious can the legs be lowered to accommodate harsher weather, and can the awning function partially extended(other than your picture)?

Ron D,
Jim did mention they are interested in adding other RV forms to the line-up, and he mentioned class C as an example. I hope it's not like the View/Navion where the overhead bed has no head room.

The ignition lockout sets whether the ignition must be on for the inverter to work.   You want that disabled otherwise you'd have to turn the ignition on before the inverter will work.

Shore power goes thru the xi2000 as the transfer switch is part of the inverter.   Thus, it turns the inverter on so that if shore power is lost, the inverter will immediately take the load.

Since the pure sine wave inverters are used with sensitive electronic equipment, they need to swith power source within a few cycles of the AC wave without spikes or total dropouts.

It's the equivalent of an Uninteruptable Power Supply (UPS) which the square wave is not.

The turn on with shore power is designed in.

My M2 came with OEM driving lights below the bumper and only work with the low beam lights as the law here NH mandates.  They go out on high beam.

D-dually's.  Yes, they are street legal and both DOT and SAE compliant.  In my State of VA, if mounted above the bumper, then they are treated as High Beams and should be shut off when other cars are in front of you. I linked my bumper lights to my high-beams to ensure I never accidentally forget. 

Another common DOT rule in many states is only 4 lights illuminated at a time, which is why Fog lights automatically shut off when you engage high beams.  If installing these, it's a good idea to use existing wiring to ensure compliance.

The Rigid D-dually is street legal and can be used like any other fog/driving light.   I am not one to break the law and therefore stayed away from many of the other light products out there that are really strictly for off road use only.

ragoodsp, I can attest to the quality, brightness, and ruggedness of your Rigid light pods. They are unbelievably bright and extremely useful for nighttime driving.  Of course, not while cars are in front of you. For other's looking, I would suggest cross shopping with Black Oak LED. I'm sponsored by them for my Jeep Wrangler, but even without the sponsorship, they are almost half the price of Rigid's and equally bright, or brighter, and just as tough. I have both brands and other than price, they are identical. Either brand are so well built that they will outlast any car you put them on. 

LED Light Pods or Light bars would be particularly useful for 4X4 PC's.  Or mounted to the rear of some rigs as a work light.       

Here are some pics of my Jeep with a variety of LED lights mounted.  I have several mounted on the rear and sides as well for perimeter lights.  Extremely useful when boondocking or off-roading.

I bought a set of these and the first time I used them, one broke. I repaired it with super glue and try not to use it. Two days ago another one broke while I was leveling the rig at another camp site. I don't know how long they will last.

Hmmm. Interesting.  They do seem to not like a stony surface, but so far mine have held up.  We are embarking on a 6 month trip out west to skip Chicagoland winter so we'll see how the levelers hold up.  More later. . . .
