I think you have a valid concern about the position where this antennae would mount. My guess is that all PC's antennae are mounted relatively close to the front, where the entertainment center is located. I too would be concerned about the lift created by compressed airflow at highway speed, especially in conditions like a gusty headwind.

I checked reviews on Amazon, and while most were favorable as to reception strength, some thought their batwing style was better.

Is PC using this style on their new units?
Hope someone replies to you with actual experience.


General Discussion / Re: Steering damper replacement

I replaced my shocks with Monroe’s and also replaced the steering stabilizer with a heavy duty one. We noticed the steering was noticeable better with new stabilizer versus the factory original. It cost $60. Don’t see any need for saf-t-plus.  But everyone is different.

By the way our 2551 drives like a dream.  Very little noise on the road, handles wells and comfortable.  Biggest impact seems to be tire pressure. I take out a little air and it makes it more like a “Lincoln” ride. 

Our 2010 2551 also drives comfortably and quietly.  At 36k miles, I'm sure the slight "wanderlust" I've tolerated will be improved by any steering stabilizer. At $24 from Amazon, I can buy 10 of the Monroe's for half the price of the designer models. That should last the 400k miles I plan to drive our phabulous PC....

Has anyone used the $30 Monroe for many miles? I'm sure the $500 Safe-T-Plus is a more substantial unit, but is it 16 times better? Is there a happy medium in the market?

In your photo one of the hand tightened knurled supply line fittings shows. The other showing stays attached to the fixture as it is the sprayer line. The fixture itself has large wing-nuts holding it to the deck.

Adjusting the generator engine rpm changes the output frequency and voltage. See page 80,  section 8-13, spec D and later.

Try connecting your voltmeter to an outside 120v socket  and measuring the voltage while tweaking the altitude adjustment knob (mixture screw) before messing with the throttle stop screw (governor).
Good advice from CalCruiser above, I'd add to start by getting informed about the whole process from page 76, sec. 8-9.

How were you able to get in to remove old faucet?
Not too tough, helps to be a skinny armed contortionist that isn't afraid to do plumbing! Assuming things are the same as in my 2010 2551, all fittings are finger tightened. Pulling out the silverware drawer helped some. Removing the P-trap can help see what is going on. Again, hand tightened.

I think this is normal, just shows that the tank was full. It will slosh out until it is no longer full.

It is my life experience that those separate sink spray hoses just give up for no clear reason.  My 2013 2100 was giving up so I just replaced it with the following:

Way less brain damage than trying to figure out why the spray will not work and you get a nice new faucet in the bargan.
We had the same problem plus occasionally no water came out of the faucet OR hand sprayer. No replacement parts are available.  By chance I replaced it with the same faucet as above, works so much better that the original, looks better too.

I'd call National and use their recommendation. Then it is their bad if it doesn't fit right. Mine is, as their specifications state, a "Class B RV Covers - Fits 28' Long  342" L x 84" W x 96" H   Color: Windsor Tan."  I think they do 26'-28', 28'-30', etc. It is plenty long on the sides, and would probably handle your extra foot in length. I would not complain if mine was a bit tighter.
Only down side (for some folks) is that the side zipper is between the passenger door and the coach door, providing access to both, but not as convenient for the coach door, but still doable.

Depends on how long I'm staying here and how many showers I take.  Yes, I let the grey tank fill the last day or two, but if I have a sewer hookup, I'm using as much water as I want.
That makes sense, thanks! I've never hooked up long enough to use it that way.

I use the city water connection to fill the lines and the water heater before filling the water tank. This clears the lines of air and fills the water heater without using the pump. Don't forget to purge the outside shower lines and toilet.

I'm curious as to why you would want to do that. I would want to accumulate the grey water to be used to flush and clean the hose after dumping the black tank. Did I miss something?

I've used the Goldline cover from National RV Covers:
They are the best for the money IMHO. Good strap system, vents, and zippers.
Be sure to cover a clean RV, not a dirty one. Plastic tarps are a no-no, they damage paint.  I put a large poly tarp over the Goldline cover for winter storage since the Colorado sun is brutal on everything.

General Discussion / Re: DVR cabinet removal 2010 2551 Success!

Hi, guys !
 I'm trying to remove the shelf under the DVR cabinet... Got the screws out, but something unseen still seems to have a pretty good hold on the right side. Any thoughts???
If you are talking about the leatherette covered padded shelf the two screws into the wall under the button covers and then the rest of it is just stapled to another little shelf from underneath, just pry it up.  Hope that helps you.
We're in the Needles District of Canyonlands in Utah, one of our favorite places on Earth, and can only check messages occasionally.

Is a propane oven an option, or has anyone installed one post-factory? We like to camp in no-generator National Forest campgrounds ( we enjoy the quiet of nature, not the noise of crowded campgrounds where in the absence of electrical hook-ups, folks run generators most of the day and night).

Coleman makes a folding stove top oven that works well. We carry a small Coleman propane camp stove for cooking outside (fish and bacon especially) and the oven works on it also.   https://www.google.com/search?q=coleman+folding+oven&rlz=1C1CHFX_enUS749US749&oq=coleman+folding+&aqs=chrome.5.0j69i57j0l4.9632j1j8&sourceid=chrome&ie=UTF-8

I also wish we had a second water pump switch in the bathroom and I will put one in someday.
