Barry,
Wow, I'd like to be able to stow the tow bar as you do.  My Roadmaster tow bar "arms" must be lifted and then folded to the side after the toad is disconnected.  My Saris bike rack is dual track like your rack, and it blocks my attempts to deploy or stow the tow bar when the rack is attached to the PC.
Your tow bar must operate differently, or I don't understand my options with mine.
Does this description make sense to you?  Maybe my solution is to buy a tow bar like yours.
Thanks for your help on this.
Bruce

Barry,
Does your bike rack and tow bar set-up allow you to disconnect your toad and fold up the tow bar without taking the bicycles off of the rack?

We sold the 37' diesel pusher that we owned for nine years and now own a 2014 2552 PC.  As you say, we gave up a lot of space but are very  happy with our new rig.

The Dometic awning on our 2552 has always been dry when opened after some rain.  But, we haven't been in very heavy rain.  Maybe that accounts for the difference.

Hi Joe,
Here are my "2 cents" worth.  I agree with Ron and Tom's comments.  I feel that the 2552 is not a good choice if you want to go without a toad very often. 
We love our 2552 partly because its relatively small size makes it fairly easy to drive and park, but it's not small enough to generally use on short trips around areas where we are camped.

On our new 2552 the fresh water drain valve is below the passenger side bed.  I lift the rear half of the mattress, locate and pull out a small square (about 6") of wood that has been cut into the bed, then reach down to the valve that is located near the rear end of the tank.

Outdoor Resort Palm Springs (actually in Cathedral City city limits) is a beautiful resort (http://outdoorresort.com).  Not sure if they allow Class B or C motorhomes these days.

Emerald Desert RV (https://www.emeralddesert.com) in Palm Desert is very nice.  It's near I-10 and near railroad tracks, but we were never bothered by that.

There are several other RV parks in Palm Springs or nearby, but we've never stayed in any of these.

We've never been able to find a nice RV park in or near Santa Barbara.

Doneworking,
I suspect that your wife's idea is great if you want to keep your current jeep and not take long trips.  The benefits to you of towing really depends on where you want to travel, what you want to tow, and how you want to travel in the local areas of your destination points.
 
We choose to tow mostly to have the toad available for shopping, exploring, etc. once we get to a new area without having to break camp with the PC.  Plus, we can leave our pets safely in the coach while we go to places that don't allow them.

I'm sure that many members on this forum will tell you how easy it is to tow their smaller sized jeeps.

Happy traveling,
Bruce

Dick,
Thank you for the post on the Roadmaster FuseMaster.  I found the application list at:
http://roadmasterinc.com/products/accessories/electrical/fusemaster2.html

We haven't towed the CR-V on any long trips lately and have been careful to turn off most battery drain items when we have towed--so far no more dead battery at destination.  Maybe the Invisibrake system is doing its job, too.

Sparky,
We often travel the I-5 in California and Oregon and agree with what Bob has just posted.  That is why we never drive I-5 north of Lake Shasta during the winter. LOL
But, as Bob points out, you can make it if you are careful, flexible, and fortunate.

The four tires that I can see on our 2014 2552 (built on a 2013 E-450 chassis) have B3JH 009X and 1313.  So, they are outside of the recall manufactured dates.

Hello Deb and Roger,

Six months ago we sold our 37' 2004 Beaver Monterey that we loved ever since purchasing it new in '04, but at this time in our lives we feel that we are "right-sized" with our new PC 2552.  Like you, we received much help from the forum members here to make the new baby feel perfect for us.  We'll be spending Christmas in it at The Springs at Borrego RV Resort & Golf Course halfway between San Diego and Palm Springs, but we'll be wishing you well in Florida with your new PC.

Happy traveling,
Sharon and Bruce
