Rollingbnb,

Thanks for that information.  I figure the spare tire was deleted for reasons of weight ratio.  I only wished they kept the spare tire compartment in some fashion, maybe style it differently so it looks like a regular storage compartment where you could mount a spare tire inside, or use to store your zero gravity chairs.  Keep it an ever flexible decision for the owner, even after taking delivery.

Our 2350 weight ratio is worse only to a 2100.  Our older 2007 model has the 41 gallon water tank sitting up against the rear wall over the rear bumper.  Between that and the spare tire, they introduce the slight rear end sag and significant handling issues.  Though our handling issues got addressed via other means, the weight ratio remains poor.  On trips, the weight on our rear axle is near the limit, but the front axle has so much margin.

I wonder how our rig would look and handle without carrying fresh water & spare tire.  That would make for an interesting experiment on a weekend get-away.

As to your other comment,  Cheers to Kyle, Earl, wife, and daughter Aimee who created the PC website and manages this forum.  While I am at it, Cheers  to Kermit and all the rest of the PC family.  Cheers

Ah...ok.  After looking up that camera model and doing a bit more internet investigating it appears the original camera is indeed a Sony. The Sony service center apparently refers folks to  Riverpark (800-442-7717) in Elkhart, IN, which handles all distribution and service matters for Sony backup video systems. Riverparks retailer is RV Cams (877-378-2267). Your replacement appears to be a non-Sony. The Sony's may have had historically bad luck with moisture issues and stopped producing backup cams.

One step closer to having the info I need to possibly replace the original camera with a dual, or adding an additional.

Thanks much...

Awesome that the PC family found your resolution.  The people here are great.

Even us seasoned PC owners sometimes forget the simple things like that.  It was a good reminder for me.  The last time my wife and I utilized CATV has to be about 6 years ago.  Like yourself, we might be away during the first debate and will want to watch it too.

The RED LIGHT and BUTTON!!!  Of course. You people are the best. Thank you all for your help and jogging my old brain. Now the cable is working fine. We are not big TV people--OBVIOUSLY since we have not used the cable in some time. We will still be on the road when the first Presidential debates take place and wanted to be able to watch them.

Also a good idea to keep the antenna off when not in use.

Thanks again, Nicki

I was at the Hershey RV show this week and got to see the new 2552 model in person.  Kyle told me that the lack of spare tire has to do with weight ratios and that there is no spare at all for that model.

The new beds have a power switch that controls them.  You can order that for either side or both.  If you get it on one side, you get one larger bed (approx full size) and one twin, but you can walk through to the bathroom.

I met Kyle, Earl and Earl's wife and had nice chats will all of them.  They are such nice, down to earth people.

Added #34 Shallow Shelf In Bathroom Under Medicine Cabinet For Toothbrushes Toothpaste And More

The hooks are brass to match the rest of the interior.  The brushed stainless faucet will always mismatch everything else.  I had thought about painting it.

I really only wanted the two hooks to the right.  The left-most hook is using the hole leftover from the door knob from when the wood was a door.  Maybe my wife Irene will find a purpose for that left hook, like hooking her rings on during her shower and at night.

Hi Bill,

We have the same condition with our tow vehicle, a Jeep Liberty.  When we stop for the night while remaining all hooked up like at a Walmart for example, I have to unplug the umbilical cord as well.  If I don't, the battery in the Jeep powers up something in the PC that I can't recall now.  I seem to recall it is related to the back-up camera and the tow brake system, but not sure.  I'll have to make note of it the next time we tow.

If all the suggestions offered don't make a difference, drive to a site as close to the RV park office as you can and plug into that CATV.  It could be the CATV service to your specific camp site is bad.

Tom has it right.  You also have to program your remote to cable not air.

Good Luck

Hi Folks,

We've had a time with our Honda FIT's battery.  I added a 12V DC line from the Cruiser's battery through the umbilical cord to the FIT, then from the umbilical socket on the FIT to the battery, through a fuse.  The intent was to power the GPS and other accessories in the FIT from the Cruiser, while towing, leaving the FIT's battery relatively unloaded.

The current problem is that, when we arrive someplace for the night, unless we unplug the umbilical when, the FIT battery is dead in the morning.  Diane had the idea to disconnect the umbilical when we arrive.  This prevents the dead battery while sitting in camp.

What seems to happen is that, when we arrive, we turn off the Cruiser's engine, leaving the umbilical plugged in to both the FIT and the Cruiser.  Then somehow, the Cruiser sucks current from the FIT's battery through that extra 12V line we added to the umbilical.

Some company makes a battery charger that will trickle the toad's battery, powered by a  line to the Cruiser, just like we have.  But, I don't want to add equipment (and cost) to the towing rig if I can avoid it.  I think a diode, which will allow current to flow TO the FIT's battery, but not FROM it would work.

Has anybody had such a problem?  How did you solve it?

Tanks in Advance!
Bill
