Tips and Tricks / Re: Portable Table

Nice table.  We have a smaller version that we have had for a while that my husband uses for grilling.  It made the cut from the class A to the limited storage of the PC 2350 because of its compact-ability and the neat storage bag.

What a great suggestion.  I followed your link and we are already talking about and excited about a new trip.  Looks like something we can do leisurely from SC in just over a week.  Thanks for the information and post some pics if you can!

Love the various shades and hues of green in early spring.  We are always  careful to wear bright colored shirts, even out in our yard.  Our house sits in the middle of sixteen acres on the border of a creek in upstate SC about 15 miles from the nearest town adjoining a hunt club.  We always say ours is the best campground we ever stay in.  :-D.  Turkey's are the only thing the hunters are after right now. Hummm don't tell my husband, but he could be in danger. I'm always telling him he's such a turkey.  But vests could be a good addition to our PC. Thanks for that idea!

Love the allstays app, great for rest areas as well.  Wondered about our chairs getting "lifted".  The sign idea sound good for us.  Guess we'll try that, no room for the cone in our storage.  Had a hard time putting in our Coleman lantern this afternoon.   Heading out for a few days to pisgah national forest week after next.  It is near the blue ridge parkway in North Carolina.   Weirdly excited about camping without electric or water connections.  Have done it some in the Tetons and Madison in yellowstone.  Thanks for the info!

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.

My husband and I are very impressed with all this good work.  You clearly love your PC and enjoy doing the mods.  We also appreciated the hint you gave a while back explaining how to distribute the grey water over to the larger black water holding tank to decrease the need to dump as often when boon docking.  I recommend to all newbies to go back through the forum and read older posts.  We have gotten some excellent info by doing so. Thank you for being so generous with sharing your knowledge.

You have some great pictures.  We spent three weeks in Utah in Arches and many of the same places you captured.  Wish we had been in our 2350 instead of the big class A.  Your PC is beautiful.

Thanks for the link Tom.  We have admired the pictures of all the great mods Ron has done on his PC. Glad to hear that the chair replacement should be simple.  Thinking of replacing ours with an inexpensive very small recliner from Big Lots until we have recovered financially from the purchase of our 4th motor home in 8 years.  Like many, we are looking for the PERFECT unit.  ;) Hopefully this 2350 is it!  Anyone know if the base plate for the barrell pedestal is installed on top of carpet?  We don't plan on carrying passengers so we only need to make sure that the chair  safely secured for travel.  The one we found swivels and reclines and is light weight.  :(cheap). It is covered in fabric that appears to match our window treatments reasonably well.

Thanks all.  Interesting reading.  Briefly visited the manufacturer link you provided, and expect the windows can be replaced if they worsen. Think we will make our first priority replacing the barrel chair so we won't argue over the  prized tv viewing spot on the sofa. Will probably need your input on that mod!

Thanks Ron.  Any idea on warranty info on the foggy glass? Don't know the manufacturer. Might be worth a call to them.  Don't mind the bathroom fog so much, but enjoy looking at the view from the kitchen sometimes. :)

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.

Hi,  we traveled with a miniature dachshund for years. Good or bad, the only place she would ride was in my lap.  She was the very epitome of a lapdog. She passed away last year.  Because she traveled with us, we were never comfortable traveling without towing so we could leave her in comfort in the mototorhome while we toured areas.  Now we will try boon docking and touring in the 2350. Hoping we can park and hike, tour, whatever, without worrying about weather extremes and our beloved pet.

Thank you.  I have been "lurking" on the forum for several weeks trying to decide if we were really ready to make our purchase.  I already feel like I know everyone here.  We have been working on setting up our rig this week and leave for our first outing for a short trip to Edisto island state Park, SC on Sunday.  Can't wait to test out our little PC dollhouse.  tymote

Hello,  My husband and I are very excited to join the ranks of PC owners.  We are from upstate SC and purchased a gently used 2010 2350 last week from Camping World of Tallahassee.  We traded our 31 foot class A because we both hated towing and want to be able to camp in more remote areas that won't accommodate larger RVs.  Looking forward to learning and sharing our mods and travel adventures.
