Any hints on removing the Rand McNally GPS in dash unit? I need to check for a blown in-line fuse.

Got my 2014 PC2350 out of storage. Truck battery was dead so had to jump start it. Everything else works fine but the GPS/Radio/ Back up camera is blank. Checked #14 fuse and it is still good. I would appreciate any thoughts or suggestions.

Thanks Tom,

I need to put captions on the pictures. It was a whirlwind trip.

Our first trip in our rig was short and quick, but fun. Here is a link to some of the photos: http://www.bobwasthere.com/Travel/Zion-Bryce-and-Capitol-Reef/38178978_M3ZG8S#!i=3153040344&k=PQDqfVp

We drove our PC2350 home to Colorado last month and have it stored in an RV storage facility in southwest Littleton. Lo and behold, there are two more PCs stored in the lot as well.

General Discussion / Husky Floor Liners

Hi All,

I have Husky floor liners in all my cars and want to get some for the cab of my PC2350 on an E450 chassis. It is tempting to assume that the mats for an E350 ( the only measurement that Husky says they have) would be identical to those for an E450. Would I be right in making that assumption?

Thanks Mike and Joni!

It is good to hear that the 8 inch riser works. Maybe I should reconsider the SMI system over the RVi2 system. I have only found one installer here so far.

Thanks Ron and Tom,

I have a thin margin on the Jeep. I believe the manual transmission 4 door Rubicon is 4521 lbs. Adding the tow bar, after market bumper, bike rack and bikes will be pushing things a bit. Maybe I'll have to throw the Jeep's spare tire in the PC and tow with the top and doors removed to save a few pounds!

We flew out of Denver and picked up  our 2350 on the E450 chassis on February 3rd. Hats off to you hardy cold weather campers but we stayed in hotels on the indirect drive back to Denver via Elkhart-Columbus, OH ( for a trade show)-Madison Wisconsin ( braving the minus 11 temps to see our daughter who attends school there) and back to Denver ( 50s and 60s this week!).

We needed to hit the ground running work-wise upon our return, so the rig is in storage for now. We are very excited for some consistently warmer weather and hoping the winterization job by the PC folks protected the plumbing on our arctic journey home.

The next step  is setting up a Wrangler Unlimited as a tow vehicle. I ordered a Tomken ( http://www.tomken.com/detail.php?id=390) Winch bumper for the Jeep with optional tabs for a Blue Ox Aventa tow bar. The Jeep will not have a lift so the after market bumper will eliminate the need for a base plate and preserve the clearance we already have.

I am estimating (wont know for sure until the bumper is installed) an 8 inch difference between the PC receiver and Jeep bumper tabs so I hope an 8 inch riser will do the trick to level the towbar.

As far as supplemental braking, SMI or Unified would be my first two choices, but an RVi2 dealer is about two blocks from work. I hope this choice on the side of convenience doesn't bite me in the butt later.

We head to Vegas  for another tradeshow at the end of March and then on to Palo Alto, CA, so hopefully, I'll have all this together in time for a shakedown trip before then.

Great suggestions! I am going to have a lot more questions for Earl tomorrow.

Thank you everyone! You opinions are what I am after and they have been very helpful. Holly, all I had to do was read your post to my wife about that woman being ankle deep in rainwater and mud at night with a flashlight and the decision was made!

General Discussion / HWH Levelers or 50 Amp upgrade?
« on: October 11, 2013, 12:00:18 am »
We actually managed to arrange a side trip to the PC factory this Saturday the 12th when we fly out to watch our daughter's rowing competition in Rockford Illinois. We may  pull the trigger and put in the order. When considering a 2350 build I was wondering if any forum members had an opinion on the choice between spending $$$ on either a HWH Leveler option OR the 50 amp upgrade, which would you choose? (I know the 50 Amp is roughly half the price). Coming from a truck camper (mostly dry camping, no genset) we are used to being pretty minimalist. Other than A/C(s) we don't foresee running a lot of appliances.

Thanks Ron and Tom,
                                    Both of your opinions are valuable.  I am still on the fence with the E350 vs E450. I am leery of a too-stiff of a ride. I off loaded the camper off of the Chevy a while back and my wife and I went for a drive. I forgot to deflate the airbags and every little imperfection in the road felt like an 18" speed bump. I would not want to duplicate that in a 2350! I may have to price an air suspension upgrade.
