« on: January 11, 2024, 10:00:39 pm »
Just saw this on FB.  I have been waiting for a twin bed model. 

ďHeading to the Tampa Rv Show! Stop by and see us to get a sneak peek at our new Phoenix Trx twin bed floor plan with new decor.Ē

I also saw liquid spring option will be available of new PC F-Series model (Super C??). 

I like PC new models.

General Discussion / PC Value Just Went Up - Lazy Daze Closes Shop
« on: June 28, 2022, 09:42:51 am »
Lazy Daze RV is permanently closed per reports on the LD Forum.  LD was a family business that made quality RVs.  So now PC and Coach House are two remaining ďsmallĒ RV manufactures remaining.  Result is your PC value has now increased for those looking for a quality RV!

General Discussion / Sold our PC
« on: March 25, 2021, 10:42:22 am »
With sadness I write that Linda and I sold our PC.  We loved our PC 2551 but with the kids producing grandkids like rabbits we will be looking to go back to a travel trailer with bunk beds so they can camp with us. 

Love this forum.  Thanks for all the helpful information provided to us.  PC owners and the factory support are the best!! 

Till we meet again!

Tips and Tricks / PC Cover
« on: October 23, 2020, 02:04:35 pm »
Put the PC to bed for the winter.  Cover is a Gold line.  I add a yoga ball on the roof at the rear to avoid water puddle due to the rear rail,  Also add strap in front to reduce flapping.  Cross the straps in back. Easy on and off.  Works good.  Second year with the cover.

General Discussion / Motor Oil Additive
« on: October 20, 2020, 02:12:22 pm »
Original owner of my PC 2551 had oil changes done at Ford dealership.  Reviewing the work i noticed they added something every oil change.  I called them and they said they added an oil additive because of the nature of RVs sitting idle over long periods of time.  I purchased the additive attached (BG-115 MOA) for $20.  My engine does not burn oil at 53,000 miles and runs great.  The BG-115 is upgrade from original BG-110.  Kind of pricy but it gives me piece of mine.  Combined with MOBIL One oil it doesnít get any better.

I requested info from Lifeline on AGM batteries.  I asked about Lifeline 6 volt GPL-6ct or GPL-4ct. Here are my questions.

1) Is my Xantrex 60 amp converter adequate to charge the 6ct or 4ct batteries?
Here is charging cycle per manual.

DC Output
Nominal output voltage
13.5 Vdc (float charge)
14.2 Vdc (bulk/absorption charge)

2] The 6ct has to be installed on its side to fit. Is that a problem? Picture below shows potential install.

Lifeline Response:
1) The battery can be mounted on itís side but must be securely fastened so it can not move up or down or slide from side to side. This can put pressure on the side of the battery and cause it to possible break on the cover to container seal.
 
2) That converter will work just fine. It is best if the float voltage was lower, around 13.2-13.3 volts but 13.5 isnít terrible, just slightly on the high side.

General Discussion / Reusing Cherokee Red Hooks after Base Plate Install
« on: February 16, 2020, 07:50:34 pm »
Ran across this and thought those of you with Jeep TrailHawks with Red Hooks May want to consider reinstalling them after base plate installation.

How to Keep Your Jeepís Red Rescue Hooks
 
We got an extra set of tow bar brackets, had the ends cut off, then replaced the normal brackets with the red hooks by welding the hooks to the extra brackets.  This allows us to install the brackets with the hooks back onto the Jeep anytime we like. The hooks are also extremely functional because they are mounted in the tow bar brackets which are rated for high strength.  Itís definitely not something everyone will want to do. But we think it is a really cool extra step and seems to have attracted a lot of interest. So if youíre willing to buy an extra set of brackets and find a welder to do the job, itís a great way to retain the look of your stock Jeep.

General Discussion / 2020 Jeep Cherokee Latitude Plus vs Trailhawk
« on: February 04, 2020, 11:55:35 pm »
Still looking for a toad. Built a new 2020 CHEROKEE LATITUDE PLUS 4X4 with neutral tow.  Savings was $5300 less than  Trailhawk Elite ($37300 vs $32000).  Plus there is a $4500 rebate.  We donít go off road.  I would miss the better seats, memory seats and dual controls but could live without it.

Anyone have any experience with a CHEROKEE LATITUDE PLUS 4X4?  It would probably line up to hitch better as Trailhawk requires an offset hitch. 

Any comments welcome.

General Discussion / Levelers: What not to do!
« on: December 31, 2019, 10:32:52 pm »
Class A with levelers lifting rear wheels off the ground. There is no keeping the MH from falling off the levelers. The block on the front tire is not even against the tire! Donít ever lift rear tires off ground.

General Discussion / TRX pic added to PC web page
« on: November 07, 2019, 08:22:56 pm »
Just noticed a TRX picture adores the PC web page.  Looks like the sprinter picture was removed. Swipe the pic to see all three.

Maybe they will be communication more on new layouts for the TRX as the existing one doesnít cut it for us.  It sure is a beauty though!

General Discussion / Battery Charger Question
« on: September 03, 2019, 08:14:29 pm »
I am considering replacing my flooded lead acid batteries with AGM.  I have a 2010 PC 2551.  It has XM 1800 inverter and Xantrex XA DC P50 panel.  Where would I find the converter/charger so I can see if it is capable to charge AGM batteries?  Is it under the passenger bed. Do I have to take out the plywood bed cover to see it?

Thanks

General Discussion / Acme tow dolly reference for brakes and bearings
« on: August 08, 2019, 09:08:39 am »
Ran across this link and thought I would share for all that have an acme tow dolly.  It gives info on brakes and bearings.  Of particular interest is how to check used ones for proper piston pressure.  So if you look at a used on you can tell if the system is in good condition.

ďThis dolly comes with the Vault wheel bearings/axle assemblies by UFP. The Vault grease system uses a small spring loaded piston to keep a little bit of pressure inside the axle (prevents water from getting in the bearings).  The status of the pressure system is easy to determine,  simply look at the hub. The black piston should be protruding 1/8 inch or so from the center of the hub.  If its flush with the hub,  then thereís no pressure.Ē

If camped at a full service resort with sewer, what has to be done or device used to leave Sanicon connected to the septic dump without causing odors to emulate?

Thanks

General Discussion / Considering Four Down Need Input
« on: July 02, 2019, 12:24:44 pm »
We are considering two vehicles for four down. 2019 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk or 2014 Honda CRV. Both appear to be good to tow behind the PC.

The Honda is used and has a Roadmaster InvisiBrake installed. Anyone use this braking system? Good? Bad? Seems to make setup easier.

The Jeep would be a new install.  They seem to have solved the wobble problem with a wire harness. 

We have a Blue Ox tow bar and Patriot brake system which could be used.

Any comments on either vehicle or the systems to use appreciated. This decision is driving me crazy!

General Discussion / Dead Remote Onan Hour LCD Meter
« on: April 19, 2019, 08:05:28 pm »
Any recommendations to replace Onan remote panel generator hours display?   I have 12 volts at the back of the hour meter pins with the generator running. No display of hours from LCD meter.

 I canít find just a replacement of the LCD screen, only the whole panel.  I found some wheel
hour meters that may work but need to measure. 


Is there another hour meter for the Onan generator besides the remote control panel?

We have a 2010 PC 2551.  We are dying to get her out but this Michigan weather is terrible.  (WH)

Thanks in advance.
