While at the factory picking up my 2351 after some work, Bob went to fill the water tank for us and found it wouldn't fill the tank. They replaced the valve. He told us that we should not change the position of the valve when it is under pressure. There are o'rings inside the valve that can be damaged when the selector is moved under pressure. I have done so since and have not had any problems since. Just food for thought.

I went with Koni FSD shocks. What I would like to do is get two like units, one with Bilsreins about
ND one with Konis , and have a "ride off"  Wonder if you could tell any difference.  (WH)

We took deliver of a 2016 2351 in December. We had the unit built on the E-450 chassis. It handles very well and we have more CCC than we will ever use. The only thing I have done is install Koni FSD shocks. I am 6'3" and 210 so had the corner bed made longer by eliminating the passenger pantry and extending the bed 6 inches and the counter 6 inches. The DW sleeps on the recliner (no dinette) all does very well. I also had a higher dome installed in the shower. About jacks!! We elected to have them installed and are glad we did. We just got back from Nova Scotia and stayed in some level challenged campgrounds where the jacks were very helpful. You could of course carry blocks etc but the 2350-1 doesn't have a great deal of storage. We are in PA and unit is in our barn available to look at.

There is a circuit breaker on the generator itself that most service people will turn off prior to service. It looks like a wall switch and should be in the "up" position. Also make sure that the breaker on your inside panel has not tripped.

I have a 2016 2351 on a 450 chassis with the new 6 speed transmission. I tow a 2014 Trailhawk. What they all said is what I get. ButI can tow with the cruise on in all but the steepest mountains as it shifts down twice and still doesn't scream up the hill. The Trailhawks brake switch is hidden up under the dash so I use a wireless lightbar for lights and brake lights  Works well.

Purchased new Koni FSD shocks from Hendersons for just over $700.  My son and I installed them in about four hours. The rears were easier to install than the fronts. He had both rears installed in the time it took me to install the right front. It took both of us to install the left front.  Results. The ride is noticeably smoother and the sharp jolts from bridge joints and potholes are better but not gone. Worth it???  Yep!!.  This is on a 2016 PC 2351 on an E450 chassis. 2o2

Deere John.   roflol We picked up our 2351 in  December. We did away with the kitchen pantry and had PC extend the kitchen counter 6 inches and made the bed 6 inches longer. I am 6'3" and sleep in the bed alone. We did away with the dinette and elected the power recliner sofa in the slide. My wife sleeps on the recliner and is happy with her bed. I also had a higher dome installed in the shower for my height and also works out well. I believe the standard dome would be too short. The bath is very small but gets the job done. I upgraded to a gel mattress for the long bed but am disappointed. Hard to climb out of the hole in the morning. We have a foam company a short distance away and will have them make me up a better one. We also had the double pane windows and a swivel passenger seat installed. Also had fantastic fans (3) put in. We are presently in Florida for a family reunion and it is HOT.  The only complaint we have is the A/C is loud. The factory table sits in our basement. Hard to get out from behind the Eurochair and hard to set up. Bought a plastic folding table for eating on and folds and rides on the rear bed. We came down from a 35 ft Newmar DP and like our 2351 better. This is our first trip without a toad (Trailhawk) and  we like it so far.  Ours is on a 450 chassis. Also had an awning on the slide window and the power awning option. We really liked the 2552 but PC could not make the bed longer. So 2351 it is. Hope this helps. By the way. We harassed Earl and Kyle for three days at the Tampa show before we plopped our money down.  2o2

I tow a 2014 Trailhawk up and down I-81 from above Scranton to Roanoke with our 2016 PC 2351 on a 450 chassis and have never had a problem. I do have a good brake system. Only the slightest tail wag but not enough to start spending money on. Go for it!,,

I think (yea, I know that's dangerous) that it is done by switching  the control panel on the dash. Give Stewarts a call. He is very honest and helpful. Number and address is on the HWH website.

Has the same looking panel under the steering wheel but buttons are slightly different. Full auto has one button you push once and the jacks come down but do not hit the ground. Second push, jacks come down and contact the ground, third push and it levels the coach. Still has the manual buttons for you to adjust the coach to your wishes. One push and the jacks retract to the travel position. Nice setup.

I tow a 2015 Jeep Trailhawk behind a PC 2351 on a E450 chassis. It tows very well with just a hint of "tail wagging the dog" but not enough to go to track bars etc. I also do not have any front end wobble as some Cherokee owners have reported.

Our 2016 2351 is on a E450 chassis and handles very well. BUT. Those bridge joints and badly maintained roads still send sharp jolts though out the unit. Thinking on installing Koni FSD shocks. Had a Born Free 26 ft that I put Bilsteins on which didn't help much. Then  installed Mor-Ryde which didn't make much of a difference either. Anyone actually installed Koni FSD. Or anything else. Thanks
