77  Main Forum / General Discussion / Rust ib frame -- am i being to anal on this concern? on: May 12, 2012, 05:23:07 pm
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?

78  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.

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 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.

86  Main Forum / General Discussion / Emptying the grey and water tanks on: February 03, 2012, 04:59:48 pm
It seems that the meter never shows the tanks being less than 1/3 full. That is after the pump runs free and there is no more water being expelled, the meter shows 1/3 full.

I recognize it may be the meter, but am wondering if i ought to just put the 3.5 inch drain hose on and see if it wlll empty any more. Any other suggestions. Is there a way to see the tanks to make a visual inspection in both tanks?

Greg & Kathy Matthews from St. Petersburg, FL and Red Lodge MT.

We are moving from 28 years of sailing a 1980 Tartan 33 to a 26.5' Motor Home. It is a lot easier to drop anchor with a motor home than with a sloop.

We are busy planning our first summer with a trip to the Canadian Maritimes.

After much research and a lot of reading many posts on many RV forums we decided on a 2010 2551 that we purchased two weeks ago. We spent the weekend at the Tampa Show and nothing else that we wish we had purchased.

88  Main Forum / General Discussion / A rattle i can not isolate on: January 16, 2012, 04:59:26 pm
I have a rattle in my 2551 at the end of the upper unit that holds the DVD and adjacent to the door. It sounds like the antenna cable, which probably runs somewhere in that area to get to the DVD. I haven't been able to figure out where i can access any of the areas where the wiring is run to either see the source of the rattle or to fasten it down..

First has anyone had this problem, and what did you do?

Second, how do you get into these areas. For example, it seems that the DVD cannot be removed.

The magic that Kermit does is just befuddling me.
