General Discussion / Saying farewell
« on: July 27, 2017, 11:26:56 am »
Selling our 2010 2350 on RVT.com.  We love our PC but just can't work up the enthusiasm to get on the highway and fight the traffic to make those long drives!  We've seen so many beautiful places over the years, but are tired of driving.  Hoping to sell the PC so we can put a tiny house at Lake Lure NC.  I have enjoyed reading all the helpful, interesting and occasionally humorous posts these last couple of years on the forum. If we can't sell our PC, then we will just hang on to her and make another trek next spring.  Once we get across the Mississippi, driving is more fun.  If anyone is looking for a good little PC, check it out!  Not many out there and it only has 25k miles.  So this is not really goodbye... I'll be watching you!   heartshower

Tips and Tricks / Modifications & additions to PC 2350
« on: November 07, 2015, 01:20:09 pm »
Well we've owned our used 2350 and done all the little tweaks we can think of.  Thought I would share them.  I hope I can add the photos in the right order. Generally, when I say "we", that means my husband executed my idea😃 :).

We removed the cutting board that we didn't use and replaced it with a metal silverware compartment to give us a little more utensil storage.

We removed the coffee pot shelf.  Took the wood and made a shelf at the foot of the corner bed to hold a projection clock and little stuff you remove at night.

We attached wire baskets under those little corner upholstered shelves to put our tablet, phones or papers in.  (Don't leave stuff in them when driving).

We replaced the original tv and took the board behind it that matched our cabinets to make a cover for the ugly, naked DVD player in the bed area. Now it looks finished.

A bamboo silverware caddy from Bed, Bath & Beyond mounted to the wall beside the sofa holds those remotes.

We found a nice drop leaf table that folds to about 6" wide to replace the cumbersome, heavy table that was included with the PC.  It matches perfectly, stores behind the driver seat when traveling, is easy for me to set up and opens either one or two leafs for a nice dining area or just for working with one leaf up.

We found a nice ottoman that is small enough to get around with the slide in while traveling, but works for a foot rest with the sofa and the recliner with slide out.  The top lifts for much needed storage, flips to make a coffee table and functions for extra seating.

General Discussion / Cable box
« on: May 07, 2015, 07:24:26 pm »
Help. We purchased our 2010 2350 used.  We have the Samsung surround sound DVD player and a roof mounted satellite.  There was no traditional switch box to change from antenna to cable when we bought our unit. We installed our direct tv box and even put in a new lg TV.  We can watch DVDs from the samsung since we connected it to the TV via Hdmi.  All is well until my husband decided he wanted to try the campground cable.  Plugged it in and realized that something is missing.  Can anyone tell me if the PC comes with cable boxes or something other than the Samsung entertainment DVD player? Can't remember  what that box is that we've had in our previous motor homes.

General Discussion / Gas mileage update
« on: October 07, 2014, 07:07:44 pm »
Sitting in Houlton ME in a nice campground. "My Brothers Place".  Crossing into CA tomorrow for 2 days then down to BAr Harbor and Acadia.  Enjoyed the beautiful fall foliage on the way in, gorgeous.  A special thanks to bgolden for the Fuelio App suggestion.  It is great.  Also thanks to the member whose post I couldnt locate quickly, for the special air filter suggestion.  My husband bought a lifetime air filter (don't know the name) and replaced it, adjusted the tire pressure down to the ratings in the door, not the 80lbs that the guys used when we got our tires rotated & front end aligned.  I am thrilled to report that our last first two tanks on this trip were 10.2 mpg, up from the 8.5 that we got when I started this thread.  Not sure exactly what worked, but we are grateful for the improvement.  Thanks for sharing all the wisdom and experience. 

On another note, after a terrible drive in slow traffic, road construction, we pulled into a Cracker Barrel at 7 pm for a quick meal and free overnight since we were too tired to go to a campground.  Parking lot was empty when we shut down but this morning there was another PC in the lot.  So all the PCs  are inMaine! heartshower

General Discussion / Disappointing gas mileage
« on: September 26, 2014, 07:33:29 pm »
I'm sure this topic has been discussed at length, but just feel frustrated.  We traded a 30 foot class A for our PC and hoped we would gain at least a little better gas mileage.  Both vehicles have the same Ford e350.  Our class A often got 9 mpgs towing our Ford Escape.  We typically don't go over 65 and are mindful of weight loads.  Have now driven our PC in various conditions, towing and not towing.  Our best mileage todate is 8.5 mpg.  How is it that the same motor on a smaller, more aerodynamic vehicle can't beat a 30 foot long shoebox driven much the same but with a heavier load? Very disappointing. pyho

Adventure Anywhere / West Rim Grand Canyon Skywalk
« on: July 20, 2014, 02:35:46 pm »
Looking for anyone who has visited the WEST Rim of the Grand Canyon.  We want to visit the Skywalk but it appears to be VERY difficult to get to, expensive and the closest camping appears to be in Kingman AZ.  Has anyone attempted this in a PC?

Tips and Tricks / Best paper maps
« on: June 06, 2014, 04:37:28 pm »
We have always supplemented our gps and Microsoft Streets&Trips with paper maps from AAA.  This year we didn't renew AAA so are looking for state highway maps for our Fall trip to Acadia NP, preferably free or inexpensive. I know we can stop at welcome centers but we like to review our route in advance.  Do you purchase Rand McNally?  Visited a couple of official state tourism sites but at least two states did not offer a mail option for paper highway maps. 

Adventure Anywhere / Acadia national park
« on: May 05, 2014, 11:48:57 pm »
Just made a reservation for Blackwoods Campground in Acadia NP for October 13-15th.  We will be in our 2350 and are not towing.  Any suggestions or thoughts about greeting around would be appreciated.  Should we rent a car or will we be able to get around in the PC and see the area.  Anyone ever stayed in this campground? Let us know what to expect...Hope we picked a good time.  Probably too crowded because of fall colors, but what about the temps?  We are from SC so it stays very warm here through October. Opinions and suggestions welcome!


Tips and Tricks / Boon docking questions
« on: April 07, 2014, 03:53:14 pm »
Now that we are no longer towing, we plan to take "the roads less traveled" and explore this great country.  We hope to leave the interstate highways and try some scenic byways. In the past, we spent weeks plotting our route, finding and reserving campsites to ensure our ability to have a safe, accessible place to park.  We would appreciate any suggestions or tips from folks  who have learned how to avoid problems.  An example, say we choose a NFS site with no host, and we want to stay a few nights; How do we ensure that our site won't be taken if we take our PC to go touring during the day?  If we want to try dispersed camping, how do we know it's ok to stay in a likely looking spot?  Any resources you can recommend?  Also are there places that a knowledgable, prudent person might want to avoid?  Please jump in with your thoughts. 

General Discussion / Thermopane Windows
« on: March 21, 2014, 09:06:16 pm »

We tried out our 2010 2350 camping on the beach at Edisto Island state park this week. We have a couple of questions. We think we have thermo-pane windows, but very few of the manuals were still with the coach.  It was nice and warm as well as quiet. We noticed that the small kitchen window and the bathroom window are "foggy".  We assume the seals have failed and there is "gas" between the panes.  Has anyone had a failure with these and is there any kind of warranty?  Seems that they should have held their seal longer than four years.  Also it rained and temps were in the 40's on this trip.  Noticed that the bathroom window and the sofa window both had a great deal of condensate on the metal frames that actually caused puddling on the bathroom counter and on an afghan tossed over the back of the sofa.  Is this normal on these types of windows?  Anyone else experienced any of these issues?
Thanks for sharing your wisdom.
Rose and Earl
