76  Main Forum / General Discussion / Steering question on: June 19, 2012, 06:30:16 am
Now that we have the Fit hooked up with our Road Master hitch, i notice that the PC seems to require a secondary response after a curve while driving at road speed. This secondary motion requires a series of alternating, but decreasing in size, movements of the steering wheel from right to left. I have installed Bilsteins, and Safe-T-Brake steering damper. I do not have the same motion when the Fit is not attached.

My bride thinks it may be due to the play in the hitch which allows the ends of the Roadmaster arms to move as much as 2 inches to be the problem. Today i will add a U bolt to take the play out.

Today i am having the block removed on the diver side rear springs that Kermit says is not needed. That block resulted in a lean in to the right of the vehicle and i am thinking that ean may be causing the problem.

Another solution could be to add Helwigs stabilizer bars.

Any suggestions?

Thanks otto PC guys and gals. After a short call to Kermit, the problem is on its way to being fixed. What a company they are, and i did not purchase new from them!

Here is his comment. When my 2551 was built, Ford had just changed from a 14,050 # chassis to a 14,500# chassis. Prior to the heaver chassis they put a spacer on the driver side to counter the extra weight of the holding tanks, slide and gas tank. Apparently i do not need that spacer and it can be removed from the Truck suspension.

This is an update, we did not experience this problem ever again on the last trip, about the only thing we did differently before plugging into the outside power is to slide the slide without the engine running.

I did not see any posts on the issue or slight rust on the underside, so hopefully this has not been discussed.

I live in Florida and purchased this rig in Indiana in January, where it did not have much travel (less than 9,000 miles in 2 plus years.) i was under the PC today fixing a few wires and trying to figure out where all the parts are.

I notice that both of the support brackets that follow the main chassis of the E450, but not the other has some surface rust on it. I live in Florida very close to Tampa Bay and we are always watching out for rust. I cannot tell if this rust -- see photo -- is something that has been there for a long time, or is a Florida environmental issue.

I am of the mind to scrape it off and paint with black Rustoleum. Has anyone else every encounter this problem and decided to something about it?

83  Main Forum / General Discussion / loose wire to steps on 2551s on: May 12, 2012, 05:07:08 pm
I had some slack in the wires to the step that you could see when sitting in a chair to the side of the PC. I fixed the slack with an additional clasp. However when i did this i found that there is a light colored purple wire that is not attached to anything, it does not effect the movement of the step and the step does not look as if it has ever been attached to anything see attached jpeg.

Does anyone have any idea where this is suppose to go?

If no one answers i will call Kermit next week and post the answer.

I searched the forum posts and found two discussions on removing the up-front TV. The two discussion are in conflict.

Does it lift up and out or do you need to remove some screws on the two corner cabinets.


85  Main Forum / General Discussion / Does anyone know how to lubricate HWH jacks? on: May 09, 2012, 04:10:42 pm
Two of my HWH jacks need a little coaxing before the come into play.

I think they need lubrication, but where and with what.

Here is my diagnosis:  we noted that the voltage readout on the inverter switch showed "--- ----" so we disconnected from the pole, then turned the inverter (remote panel behind the driver seat on wall) switch on and off then the read out changed to "13.6

Then we plugged back into the pole and all was okay. We run the generator once a month and stay plugged in while in the nest.

Thanks for your help

Back on, after unplug from site, fiddle with converter panel then replug. Ingunity wins out, like blind squirrel who finds acorn.

Any suggestions.

I have 09 2551 PC. We are plugged in to camp site, with AC on  one outlet next to converter panel is hot, one behind drivers seat and micro wave is hot and refrig is on. Other outlets under sink, rear Tv, and bathroom, for front TV and hot water have no power.

Reset all 110 circuits no change.

Any ideas, if so Please call 727. 743. 5597 Or email ge.montana@

I find the 2551 to have an improved ride, with alignment, safe-t-break and bilsteins. It drives more like a panel truck, and the total cost for these  three services is about $1,100.

The alignment shop put our tires at 85 lbs, need to check that out based on other comments.
