We purchased our 2010 2350 in 2014.  The front drivers seat was peeling slightly.  Within a year it was so bad that we had to brush ourselves off after getting out.  We had the seat reupholstered. Our guy said it was a very low quality vinyl.  Shortly after, the passenger seat started peeling and deteriated very quickly.  Had it covered.  Then this fall, the sofa started peeling.  It is being recovered as I type.  We never contacted PC since we certainly had no desire to have Paul's seating touch our coach.  We've never had this happen in three prior motorhomes, nor in any vehicle we ever owned.(usually tour cars were leather.).   Our two seats are just like they were the day we picked them up, of course it has only been a couple of seasons on the first seat.  This cost us nearly $1000, still cheaper than buying new seats.  Hopefully this will last us till we are ready to sell.

Thanks for your diligence on following up the old post.    Great information.   
Would replacing my  single 12 volt house battery  with an AGM  be beneficial ?
Where did you find the plug-in 12 volt  meter  ?

Barry and Sue,    really appreciate your help on this.     Would it be violating your  patent on the item  to  post the dimensions ?
I promise not to mass produce !

In 2015 PC graciously replaced the vinyl on the drivers chair and a Euro chair.  Unfortunately, the new vinyl is again flaking on the Euro chair.  Now the passenger chair and both vinyl sleeper seats are flaking.  I fear for the resale value after only five years.

I would like to get a feel for what the group experience has been before I talk to Kermit.

How old is your vinyl? Have you had flaking? To what degree?  Did replacements also flake? What do you think a normal lifetime of vinyl should be?  Advice? Suggestions?

Thank You Mike/PAX for sharing the link.  It was quite interesting.

Unless I missed it, there was no mention that tires need replacing after a certain age.  Replacement of tires exclusively involved their physical condition.  Therefore I feel our perfect condition 10 year old Michelin tires are still good to use.

Funny, they mentioned how the front tires can get worn unevenly, "feathered edges", due to wheel alignment issues.  I have some front tire thread feathered edges as he described, but I feel it is caused by strong & consistent side winds for days at a time driving across the Great Plains, having my steering wheel pointed to the left or right pending the direction of the consistent blast of air to keep the rig going straight.

Could be that the outboard new tires were incorrectly mounted on the rims (not aligning the valve stem with a D-hole in the rim)

 - Mike


That's not possible, the hole in the wheel itself, where the valve is installed is always in the middle of a D-hole as you call it.

I would also agree with the others in "trusting"  Earl,  Kyle and the whole PC team.   They are, in my opinion, the MOST honest and straight forward vehicle dealer/manufacturer I have EVER dealt with.. bar none!

Oh, the valves will be metal fer sure.  All of our past fulltiming RVs had steel valves.  The previous owner of our "Fawkes" left us with new tires that have steel valve stems. . .just two rear outboard tires aren't accessible!  Go figure.  shrug   Cheers

The valve stems are supposed to be 180 degrees apart when the wheels are mounted, so look where your inner valve is and then look at the wheel hole opposite where the inner is and you shoul be able to see the tip of the inner valve.

Also.. Make sure the shop tightens the schrader valve that is mounted inside the extension!   They are not always fully screwed in when new and you can end up with a slow leak!
