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.

Bob,
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

Holly,

Very nice summary of the pros and cons of the custom desk. 

We agree with you that the desk could be useful at times but would take up too much space most of the time.  We're happy with our 2552 without the desk.  The way we use the Euro Chair the doorway is almost blocked as it is.  We also use a little side table next to the Euro Chair--it fits nicely between the chair and the side wall.

I'm curious about the blog that you post.  Is it something that Forum members can access?

Happy holidays,
Bruce

The front wheel cover is installed!
I first cleaned the wheel, then applied a little silicone spray to the area where the cover attaches.
Next I inserted the bottom part the cover into the wheel a little and held it in place with my hand and knees.  I then began taping the cover with a rubber mallet on alternating sides a little at a time until the entire cover finally popped into place.
Not sure if that was the best way to do it, but it worked for me this time.

Thank you Mike for the good suggestions.  Your approach sounds very sensible, and I will try that in a day or two.
Will let you know if it works for me.
A "Helpful" for you!   ThankYou
