The drain valve is under the bed.  You need to extend the rear slide, remove the mattress and you will see the access panel cut into the plywood.  Reach your hand down inside the plywood to find the 1/4 turn ball valve.  Make sure the slide is out or you will have a flood inside!!

General Discussion / Re: 110 plug in while stored

Our PC has 6 volt deep cycle from the factory.  I keep mine indoors as well and connect it to 110 every 1-2 weeks for a day.  I did have to add water every couple of months or so, but they maintained a good charge.  I just changed the coach batteries for the first time after 10 years and installed  the AGM type.  I plan on continuing to connect to 110 as I have been doing.  I will be checking to see how they hold up.  I won't be adding water anymore since the AGM's are maintenance free.

1. Power stroke engine
2. Medicine cab that didn't hang out over the sink so I can wash my face!
3. Steering wheel mounted volume control for the radio

I had the same issue after a slightly longer than normal winter.  Removing carb bowl and cleaning our ethanol jelly solved the issue.  Now I drain the carb when winterizing.  I think I will also install a fuel shut-off so I can start the motor occasionally without filling the carb back up again.

Ours looked great in 2015...then horrible in 2017.  Besides the look, they made a mess by flaking all over the place.  I took my PC to the factory in 2018 to have some repairs made (outer rear tire blew and tore up the exterior).  While there I had them redo the seats with leather.  A couple of years later the power couch started flaking.  I disassembled and took it to an upholsterer and had a heavy duty polyester material put on.  So far so good, and it's easy to clean.  We got some extra material to have on hand if the padded areas start to flake.

We currently tow a Mini 2 door 6 speed.  4 wheels down.  Our 2910D is heavy so we wanted a light toad and my wife likes Mini's!  We can connect/disconnect in 10 minutes.

I use 5W-20 per manufacturer specs.  I use Amsoil full synthetic in every thing I own.  My PC has almost 35K miles on it and I have never had to add oil between changes.  I usually go 5K between changes unless on a longer trip.  Just got back from a 6300 mile trip and the oil was still clean...changed it anyway.  As a side note a use Amsoil V-Twin synthetic in my Harley and have noticed it shifting smoother and using less oil.  Many of the Harley repair shops recommend the Amsoil.

We bought our 2013 PC in 2015.  The seating upholstery began disintegrating in 2017.  Reupholstered the cab seats in 2018, and the couch in 2022.  PC told me it was inferior product and they quit using it some time ago.

My name is Greg.  My wife and I bought our 2013 2910D in 2015.  It had 4500 miles on it and was like new...and we love it!  We were looking for a B+ type coach and had seen some PC's on line.  We stumbled across ours at a dealer who really wanted to get rid of it because it wasn't what they typically sold.

We usually tow a Mini Cooper 4 wheels down (6 speed stick) or a Harley on a trailer.  We retired a couple of years ago and now have 34,000 miles on our coach.  We get a lot of comments on our coach and interest from Type A owners who are looking to downsize.  We moved from California to the Raleigh, NC area.  I had a large shed constructed at our new home and keep the coach inside.  I have electric available to keep the batteries charged up and being a retired plumbing contractor I also put in water and a sewer dump.  I wanted to store it on my property so I can tinker around on it and always have it ready to roll!

I have found the E450 chassis and V10 motor to be as advertised.  Not the best mileage or torque, but so far very reliable.

I am looking forward to getting some good ideas from other owners and maybe sharing some of my tweaks as well.
