Tom,
Our primary towel bar in our 2552 is an "Over Door 3 Bar Towel Rack" like the ones at Camping World Item #71552 or #43953.  It fits nicely on the shower door.  I've wrapped some velcro around the points that touch the door so that the rack doesn't bang around while traveling.

We also use several "Over the door single hooks" that we hang from the top of the shower enclosure--one or two on the outside near the sink and a couple more inside to hang dripping wet items.

I like the idea of having a towel bar on the sliding bathroom door--might add that too.

I know that this reply is not directly applicable to the main subject here, but I want to give my point of view on the 2350 vs the 2552 shower.  We had a 2350 before we purchased our 2552, so I've experienced both.  Maybe it's because of my size (only 5'6" and 138 lbs.), but I much prefer the shower in the 2552.  There's plenty of room inside for a great shower and I prefer the hinged door rather than the accordion one.  I do like to open the door to make more space when making my final towel down before stepping out of the shower.

Here is the equipment we use for towing our 2013 Honda CR-V with our 2014 2552 PC:
Roadmaster Invisibrake part number 8700 and
Roadmaster All Terrain Non-binding tow bar.

We find these to be very easy to use because there are no braking components to move in and out before or after each trip.

The tow bar is light enough for one person to easily hook up and/or disconnect (much easier than our previous Roadmaster unit that always took both of us "seniors" to manage together).  The base plate is barely visible when to tow bar is removed.

We purchased these at Camping World in San Martin, CA and had them do the installation.  That very complicated process was done perfectly and we're very happy with the results.

We do plan to add the Roadmaster "Fusemaster" switch to avoid the possibility of discharging the toad's battery while hauling on a long trip.

Barry,
Very interesting post--thanks!
Please help me understand the advantage of reversing the airflow.

I have pressure pro unit I had with my class A. Do they work OK just placing them on the rear extenders?

The Pressure Pro sensors that we are using now were originally used on our 37' class A.  They work exactly the same on both RVs.  

We use a full set of ten sensors including the four on our CR-V towed car.  I want the sensors for the toad as much as for the PC and am always as concerned about the pressure in the front tires of the PC as on the rear tires.  As Mike has posted earlier, using the sensors on the front tires is a little more difficult due to the Ford wheel covers, but it can usually be done fairly easily by being careful not to drop the sensor inside the wheel covers (even then, it's become easier to pull off and replace those covers with a little more practice).

But, I think you could use sensors on the rear tires only if you choose to do that.  The installation procedure for the Pressure Pro sensors lets me choose which tires that will get a sensor attached.

Hope this helps,
Bruce

Mike,
Darn, I remember your earlier post saying that you could add air to the front tires without removing the sensors and that's what I was thinking when I asked for the brand of yours.

I'm using a set of Pressure Pro sensors on our PC that we had before and used on our previous RV.  It's difficult for me to get my fingers on them securely enough to remove and replace the front wheel ones without dropping them behind the Ford wheel covers.  So I was anxious to get the pass-thru type to eliminate that problem.

I'm thankful that you clarified the issue before I foolishly ordered a new set.

Welcome Joseph and Maria,
We're almost neighbors to you as we live about one-half year in Palm Desert Greens.  We recently "right-sized" to our 2552 from a 37' diesel pusher and have no regrets about that decision.  We love our PC.

The photo below is at a place where many snow birds come during the winter.  Some would say it's in the middle of nowhere, but it's actually between San Diego and the Salton Sea (about 75 miles south of our winter location of Palm Desert.)  It's next-door to the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park (the largest state park in California)

Every year we stay for a couple of weeks at the award winning Springs at Borrego RV Resort just outside of the busy little town of Borrego Springs.  We love hiking the nearby desert trails and soaking in the mineral baths in the RV resort.  There are many other activities here, including a 9-hole championship golf course.  Among the many little shops in town are two of our all-time favorite restaurants.

Not bad for a place in the middle of nowhere!

I never got that message and so far all is well and feel confident that the mh is okay.   It really shines and feels great and smooth.  It is a little late to find this out. So I will go with it..

frecklestweety,
Have you continued to use the Dri-wash product on the Diamond Shield or decal covered areas?  If so, how often do you apply it?  Do you notice any change in color or feel in any of these areas?

I thought we would get some other replies to this topic.

Can you give us the product info for this?
The link didn't show me the item.

Ah, well the only problem I have had with the monitor is the black reading becoming useless after the first week or two.  I don't understand why a better system can't be installed on these things.

Hi Carol,
Sorry to hear that your black tank monitor is useless for you.  We had the same feeling with each of the several RV's we've owned prior to our PC, but have had no major troubles with the black monitor on our 2014 2552 after more than a year of using it.  Only in a couple of cases did the black sensor not show empty after fully completing the entire routine that we list below.

There are a number of posts on this forum with ideas to keep the black tank monitor operating correctly (some by Sparky, for example).

Here is the routine that we use:
We dump the black tank about once a week during an extended trip (flushing it with a full tank of gray water each time),
Add a package of Thetford Aqua-Kem Dri and a gallon of so of water to the toilet,
Always do the same as above at the end of each trip, and
Back flush the tanks with the built-in flushing system whenever the tank monitors don't show empty after a dump.

Hope you find a routine that will work for you.

Not sure that this answers your question, but I never have the engine running while extending the jacks.  The system might be trying to alert you not to move while extending the jacks.

Holly,
Thanks for the info on your blog.  I went immediately to the post on the Monterey Bay Aquarium since we have a home nearby.  We're members of the Aquarium and walk our dog Sparky along the nearby trail almost every day.  Happy to hear you enjoyed your visit.
It's fun to read about the other adventures on your trip, too.  We've been to some of the same places.  So, your experiences bring back memories and motivate us to explore some more.
We're different from you about where to spend the winter as we're now in the Palm Springs area for the season.  We know that California needs some serious rainfall this year to recover from the drought conditions of the last few year, but it's nice for us to hear about the rain and not live in it.  Our kids and friends in Pacific Grove are looking after our house while we're away.  Unfortunately some family members' homes have already suffered damage from falling trees caused by the recent storm.
Happy holidays,
Bruce
