I too have my 5th wheel detailed in FL, but I've been happy with Protect All on the PC - Just my 2C

I move the seat front or back as needed, and am able to move it most times.  Once or twice, for a variety of reasons, I have also opened the door.

Hi Mike - Good to have you aboard!!! I've had 5 PCs and am still learning, so don't feel bad...as DONC said, you might disconnect the motor (it's also an easy way to check for power) and move the valve manually - it could just be stuck after a couple years of no use.  Also, I would highly recommend a trip to Elkhart - It isn't that far from you, and let Doug go over your entire rig... He will likely have you out of there in a couple hours, after explaining everything, and it will be fixed correctly.
Good luck,

I only take my two piece rods in the PC - broken down if I go with a buddy.  If I'm by myself, I leave the rigged, and on the corner bed.

To lighten this up, I especially enjoy all the emails with "quarantine humor" floating around ... anybody see the one about the guy who hit on his wife in the kitchen after a few drinks, and she gave him a phony phone number??
At least now we can grocery shop - we had 2 weeks of complete lock down when we returned to DE from FL, so life is good!!!

As a possible on the tax, my 2350 Sprinter (larger, Mercedes diesel - some use this engine, I think) averages 16 - hills, 50, 70 or whatever.  I have had 3 PC Sprinters, and all have recorded the same..FWIW.

I contacted RV Armor for my %th wheel, and am very impressed with their service and attitude. I gave them a deposit, then decided to cancel because I had no real issues with the existing, even though It is rubber coated and others have had problems with these.  The folks were kind enough to refund my deposit, and very courteous, and I would not hesitate to use or recommend them.  When I was considering, current users were very satisfied
, but it is not a cheap process.

The Eurochair is used all the time - by me, my wife, or any guests - seem to gravitate to it before anywhere else.  The "normal" setting on your valve is for use with the water pump when not connected to city water.

From what Barry tells me, the factory turns all new customers over to the Campers Inn guy - the price is the same if you buy through him - then you have the option of service at the factory or a dealer.  Like the others, I will go nowhere but the factory for service.

As a follow up, I add 1/4 cup of bleach when I fill the water tank.  You can't taste it, and it eliminates the sulphur odor in standing water - been doing this in all my trailers & RVs for 25 yrs.

We can go 5 without any problem in a 2350 - with the 2552 you can probably do better - take Navy showers!!!

Hey Ron -

We took 3 months for the entire trip -- about 6 weeks in Alaska. including a week and a half in Denali (the furtherest you can drive to, dry camping for one week, and more modern for 4 days.  It took 24 days (kind of liesurely from here DE to Whitehorse, YT (which I HIGHLY recommend), via the Trans Canada Hwy.  Instead of returning right away, we went down the OR coast & visited my daughter in CA, which added 3 weeks.  In all, when you retire, DO THE TRIP!!!  I've learned enough about you on this forum (and seeing you in Glacier NP) that you will love it.  As was said, Provincial parks in Canada are wonderful, as well as those in Alaska.

Any idea regarding the chassis length? I'm wondering if the length will increase - if it would create a Sprinter with a 2552 layout, it would appeal to a large group, I would think.

Hi Pappy:
We just completed a 3 month trip to Alaska, the coast of Oregon, and Northern California this summer. I have a "standard" (if there is such a thing!) 2017, 2350 Sprinter with one solar panel that Phoenix installed. and standard refrigerator.  We dry camped for a week at the furtherest campground in Denali, and only ran the generator once to used the microwave.  The rest of the time (coffee pot, etc.,) we had plenty of power. I would guess 1/3 of the other nights involved dry camping as well.  Of course Alaska had a lot of sun, and, for much of the trip we were driving 200 miles or so, so the batteries stayed up.  In short, I'm very happy with the solar, and, while I would have preferred 2 panels, 1 seems to get us by.
