General Discussion / Solar Controller Problem
« on: June 20, 2020, 09:13:14 am »
I have the MidNite Kidd Solar controller that has become "frozen".  The only reading I see on the screen is "0 KWhr, KID, and 0 Ahr".  I called the company who said this can occur (but uncommon) if the rig is stored inside with no exposure to the sun for a period of time.  To fix the problem they suggested, since there is no on/off switch, to switch the DC 30 amp breaker.   This would then un-freeze the unit to become operational again.

But where is this 30 amp fuse?  Are the two fuses on the right one of those fuses?   If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. 

thanks

Here is the valve I installed.  I agree the metal is better then the plastic valve that PC sent me.  Don't forget the clamps

General Discussion / Re: Fun from SCT
« on: April 17, 2020, 11:36:15 pm »
The previous owner of our 2910D left the SCT programer in our rig.   We know the transmission software was updated based on our performance.   

Question:  How often do you have to update or re-run the SCT programmer?   

Our rig also came with the Banks system installed.   Based on our performance we have seen an improved power and better gas milage.   We believe between the design of the PC, the use of the SCT programer, and the Banks system we have maximized and have the most efficient engine and transmission.  We also have noticed an appreciable smooth changing when the transmission shifts.  Driving 60 mph without towing, ideal road conditions (especially when driving on flat interstate/hwy) we get between 13-14 mph.  When we tow (honda fit) we get 11 mph on those ideal conditions.

General Discussion / Re: 120V Electrical Outlets
« on: March 11, 2020, 12:13:40 pm »
After reviewing these post I examined our outlet covers.  In the inside the faceplate is flush with the outlet.   On two of them it appears they were glued on; there are no screws holding the cover in place.  One of the outlets does have the screws in place which seem to be in the correct position just above and below the actual outlets.  The photo posted is funky....  it doesn't appear to be the correct faceplate.  What are the two notches?  and the screws look like they were just screwed in.

When you purchase the simulators that bolt on it comes with the appropriate hardware extending bolts that go on to the existing lug bolts (two per wheel).  You will replace the snap on simulators with the new simulators.  You will now have 4 (in our case after loosing one) simulators that snap on sitting on your shelf.

I lost a simulator while traveling down a rough road in Az.  I switched from the clip on simulators to the bolt type of simulator.  Easy to install over the lug bolts.  I haven't had any concerns or issues of loosing another simulator.

General Discussion / Re: Does a phoenix cruiser have a RVIA sticker
« on: February 03, 2020, 04:34:08 pm »
After the prior discussion of the RVIA sticker I looked on the underside of the hood, around the engine compartment and on the cab doors to include the RV door and could not find my RVIA sticker.   Perhaps someone who has one could post a photo of what their's looks like.

General Discussion / Surge Protector Humming??
« on: January 30, 2020, 01:23:22 pm »
We noticed, after we returned home from our last RV trip and plugged into our home shore power (we have a 50 amp plug), a humming sound coming from behind the panel that houses the Surge Protector indicator, inverter, generator, and tank indicator.   The inverter is off so I don't believe the humming sound is from that.  If I unplug from the power the humming sound goes away.   I suspect it is the Progressive Power Surge making the sound.  There are no error codes on the Progressive indicator panel and everything seems to be functioning.  While not a loud humming sound it is annoying.   How does one access the back of the wall to determine where the humming sound is coming from?  Any thoughts would be helpful.

This is why I appreciate the forum..... I have been trying to understand how to use the dome lights for the past couple of years.  Now I know....... how to control the dome light using the dimmer switch when the courtesy lights go off....

thanks again,,,

Frank - Beth,

Our 2017 - 2910 D does not have the switch located between the 2 DC outlets.  As explained to me this switch provides the ability to use the radio when the ignition is not turned on.  And that this switch was not used in 2017.   Who might know is Doug or Dave at PC......

Could you please send a photo of that switch between the DC on the dash.   

Our dome light comes on transiently when the door is open.  (you don't need a key in the ignition)  The light will then go off in a minute or so once the door is closed.  This occurs if the toggle switch between the dome lights are pushed to the left.  If the toggle switch is on the right the light will not come on if the door is open.    It would be nice if we were able to turn the light independent of the door being open.  This would be nice if one were stopped and needed to look for something in the cab without having to opening the door.

General Discussion / Re: Lippert Schwintek Lubrication
« on: December 29, 2019, 11:41:38 am »
Thanks for bring this maintenance issue up.   One of the youtube video from Lippert (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KbVRFMo1Rg) it appears the CRC that they recommends comes with a red straw.  Did yours come with that straw since it sounds like your made that straw?   We have the 2910D but I am assuming all the other PC models are using the same Lippert slides?  Hope others will respond on what they do to keep their slides lubricated.

General Discussion / Re: What air compressor do you carry?
« on: October 23, 2019, 11:55:55 pm »
We also use the Viair.   We agree on Mike's points;  the downside being the cost.  But this is a very reliable compressor as we just found out when heading out for the Charleston rally.   It was nice to have when we discovered that one of our tires on the tow car needed air.  Because this compressor can provide high pressures it works well not only with the low pressure for the tow car but higher pressures that are needed for the tires on the RV.

General Discussion / Re: Pioneer Radio with GPS
« on: August 12, 2019, 08:01:36 pm »
We have always wanted to play the Pioneer radio when parked but we are unable to find a "switch".  The radio/navigation system only comes on when the motor is running.  Is it possible we may not have the "button switch" ?   thanks
