Tips and Tricks / Re: 4 Way Water Fill Valve
« on: April 07, 2017, 07:20:52 pm »
Seems like a common problem with the valve.  I just had mine replaced on my 2016 2351 in Elkhart last month.  I hope the new one is better than the old.  I had leaking issues from the valve and the same water problem inside the unit.

Thanks for the heads up as well.  Glad it was a "simple" fix and not having to work on the water lines.  Welcome to almost spring!!

We have the same rig, 2351 on a 450 chassis.  We tow a Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk 4 down.  We have the SMI stay-n-play brake system and love it.  It takes us about 4 minutes to hook up or unhook.  We have almost 12k miles on the system and have no trouble.  We do have the steering kit on the Jeep.  We flip the 2 switches and pull the fuse when we are stopping for the night and then reset those in the morning.  We also have the permanently wired light harness.

No complaints from us on the system.

I can't really comment on the new vs used, we bought new because we had specific layout items we wanted included.  I would recommend renting a couple different units to see how the "standard" layouts work for you and the space.  We rented, as Jill would say, "a bucket of bolts", but it was the length we wanted to ultimately buy.  We wanted to test out the space and make certain that we could function in a 25' motorhome.  Worked for us and showed us many things that we wanted to change.  Sorry, but for us, the shows weren't as much help.  We need to live in the space to really see how it worked.

Good luck with the search and enjoy the process.  The process can be fun.

Congratulations and welcome to the PC club!!!  Just spend the next 5 months planning out all the wonderful things you will do on that trip home.

If you search for the following, I added pictures of what our bathroom and drawer set up looked like.   I listed all our modifications and then a couple of pictures.

I think the correct reply should have been - "You're not buying a Jeep -- yet!!"  Give it some time and it will look great behind your PC.

We camped in Smokemont, closer to the park border with Cherokee.  The campground is right near the river, nice sites, close to the bathrooms with flush toilets.  The horse stables are close by if you want to take a trail ride and the stable sells the firewood for the campground.  As unusual with National Campgrounds, no hookups, but has a dump station.  Nice shaded sites.  We camped for 4 night in October and loved it.

Ah the fun of that first night.  We drove down to Elkhart from Northern Michigan in our Toad.  We had our Jeep Cherokee fitted with tow bars and were able to test our setup and hookup with our truck.  We hooked the Jeep to the truck and drove around the neighborhood to test everything before we went to Elkhart.  We took all the necessary gear, pillows, sheets, etc., and a little cookware.  We spent the night before in a hotel near PC and got there early in the morning.  We spent about 2 hours going through the unit.  I had reviewed every video multiple times before we got there so we had specific questions, and we found a few customized things they had forgotten.  They fixed a couple right then, but we had to come back 2 weeks later, as our backsplash hadn't been ordered.

We spent a night locally, there is at least one year round campground in Elkhart.  We didn't have to go back for anything the next day, but our air conditioning did quit on us the next week.  We just went to a certified Dometic dealer and had it fixed.  PC covered the bill, no problem.  Hooking up the Toad and having it available was nice and let us experience how everything was going to work long term. 

Tips and Tricks / Re: Maxxair vs Fantastic vent fans
« on: November 27, 2016, 07:38:38 pm »
We ordered 2 Maxx Air fans on our modified 2351, one for the bathroom and one for the kitchen.  The bathroom fan couldn't be ungraded because of the space available next to the shower skylight, so we have both the fantastic and the Maxx Air.  We like the Maxx Air because the cover allows use during a light rain.  We also upgraded the Maxx Air to the remote control unit.  We like that because we can adjust the vent from bed without getting out of bed.  Overall so far the Maxx Air seems to be the more versatile unit, with the vent cover, more speeds and ability to run it when the vent is closed.

We just added heavy duty anti-sway bars to our 2016 2351 on a 450 chassis we took delivery of in August.  It does make a difference in stability.  We had sway from semis passing us on the expressway, we only drive about 60 MPH, so they pass us frequently.  The place we really noticed the sway was on BIG bridges with high winds.  I'm not very comfortable on bridges anyway, and crossing them in 25-35 MPH winds was a bit challenging.  We especially had a hard time on the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel.  Coming up out of the tunnel in high wind was VERY noticeable and could move you half a lane on the road.

We haven't done a long trip with the new anti-sway bars, but it was very windy when I brought it home from the shop and I could already notice the difference.  I agree with Ron, I think it's a big upgrade in safety.

We have a 2351 with the corner bed, I'm 5'9" 160 lbs and my wife is 5'8" 133 lbs.  We both are very comfortable in the bed, we did upgrade the mattress to include the gel foam layer.  We also opened up the bathroom, removed the wall back to the shower, moved the toilet to the outside wall and eliminated the door enclosure to the bathroom.  This opened up the bed some and made the space much more comfortable and it easier to make the bed.  We've had our unit since the middle of August and have spent about 8 weeks in it.  We travel 6-8 weeks at a time 4 times a year so we spend a lot of time in that bed.  We are VERY happy with it so far and don't feel it will be an issue.  My wife sleeps on the inside, she has a urostomy so she doesn't have to get up at night and that makes it easier for the two of us to coexist in the bed.  I get the side close to the toilet so I don't wake her up when I have to get up.

We have the magna shades on our unit and like them.  They aren't really as necessary in the fall, we only used them for one 3 day stay on a 6 week trip we just returned from, but they do help reduce the sun coming in the unit.  We had a stone crack the windshield and just had it replaced, we salvaged the magnets from the window and will be placing them on the new windshield.  The glass guys were amazed at the strength of the magnets.  They put them in 4 separate boxes for me to take home, as they thought I would never get them apart if they stuck together!!!  So there is no doubt they are strong enough to hold the shades in place.

We have the 15K air conditioner with heat pump and we just got back from a trip to the smokies and shenandoah and the heat pump worked great down into the 40's when we were plugged in with electric.  A nice option when plugged in to not have to use your LP.

Looks great.  It's wonderful that we can each make our PC look like we want it.
