The toilet valve came loose because the tech forgot to replace the two stainless screws that hold it in TIGHT. It eventually leaked but we caught it with only about two gallons flooding the floor. The black tank flush system never worked from day one. I'm still working on fixing these issues.

I made an interior wooden step near the door for a place to put your feet when sitting in the passenger chair. I also incorporated a 2 x 12 on the highest step to equal out the step hight. I moved the water pump to the right to facilitate room for my tools. I also installed a hardwired PI 50 amp EMS into the unit.

We are very satisfied with our unit and will eventually solve the problems and see you on the road. Keep me posted as to your issues if you will.
A couple of comments on your post - we have replaced 5 of the 8 LED lights...they eventually will stop flickering and go out.

Check to see if the back-up valve for your Black Flush kit is installed correctly. It is located underneath the bathroom sink most likely right underneath the sink. It has 2 connectors that both unscrew - flip around the orientation and re-install. That was what was wrong with mine.

I am not sure what you are referring to on the PI 50 Amp comment.

Regards...

Thanks for the info on LED lights. 3 new ones are being processed. The Black Flush valve is on correct. I was told to just connect the two together to see if it works without the Air Lock valve in place. As for the PI 50 Amp EMS system, I put in the hardwired unit. My good friend lost his unit ($3000) worth to a mis-wired 30 amp 110 outlet. Electrician hooked it up as a 220 volt outlet. Big problems resulted. I don't want to take a chance the voltage will fall or rise above safe levels. Too expensive as it is !!!!!!

Hello Mickey

I may miss understood your question, but if I understood it correctly then what Charles meant was the Progressive Industry 50Amp Energy Management System that he installed to protect his coach from trashy power.

For me, I am using the removable one:

Ahhh...make sense - I too have one of these for prevention more than anything else. No issues thus far.

Hello Mickey,

I notice that you have the 2016 G'Town XL 350TS which is about the same as my 352QS with the exception of 4 slides vs. 3 slides.

That said, how was your rig performed after you implemented the 5 Star Tuning?

Thank.

So so with the 5-Star - maybe more placebo...I had to go back to 5-Start twice or updated shifting...I lost all of my kickdown when going up hills or large bridges...The 350TS is heavy and I think that has a lot to do with it too. I still use the tuning but I wonder if they backed off most of the shifting tweaks due to the issues I was having of not downshifting.

It was night and day different on my 33foot class C which is why I immediately bought the new tuning file for this rig.

Thank Mickey, The reason that I asked because I saw some post regard to the system would work for rig up to 2015. Since yours is 2016, I assumed that they do have a new model for 2016 but not sure if it functions the same.

Also, did you ever concerned about the possibility of voiding your Ford engine and transmission warranty by install the 5 star tunning?

No - was never really worried about the warranty piece - That's probably a discussion in itself...

2016 was the year of the crossover to the new 6 speed transmission - I have the older 5-speed in my rig. I actually thought I was buying the 6 speed - not a deal breaker as the 6 speed has their issues/complaints if you read around. I think the reason for the 5-speed was that I actually have a 2015 chassis even though though the coach was labeled as a 2016. End of day - all is good.
