Update:  Since the curtains were, evidently, defective from the start, Phoenix will be replacing them, free of charge.  Now, how's that for customer service? !!!

Thanks, everyone, for the help!

Is the switch on the remote, the bypass switch?

Is the unit noisy?

I broke the clip that holds the battery door up when I pulled out the battery tray and it fell on the ground.  I've ordered a new battery tray but will have to have a new clip ordered and painted to match if I can't find a source for a a new one.  PC installs stainless steel ones, now, but the ones they are using are smaller than the plastic ones used in the past so there would be a white ring around it.

Any one know of a source for stainless steel ones that are the same size?

So, if I understand correctly, if you install before the transfer switch the generator is not in the loop but the transfer switch is protected, and if it is installed after, the transfer switch is not protected but the generator is?

Do you both have them installed below the passenger bed?  When I looked under there, it looked like, what keelhauler referred to as input terminals, would have to be moved over.  Is that something that can be done easily after the fact?

Shouldn't it be placed before the transfer switch?

Barry-Sue, where did you place the remote switch?
Does the constant blinking bother you?  I bother easily!  LOL

Thanks everyone for the suggestions.......I thought there might be a double sided hook strip or something that I was missing.  I've got a call into PC on a bunch of other things but that's for other threads.  I'll ask them about it and see what they say.  If the cost is prohibitive, I'll probably use small chip clips until I figure something else out.  I don't sew....although, I guess you could sew a few hook tabs by hand down one of the strips. 

Anyway, thanks again......At least, I now know, I'm not Velcro challenged.  Grin

I thought I had read a thread here about installing a Progressive Industries hardwired EMS in a 2552 by moving something under the passenger bed.....but, I can't seem to find the thread, now.  Anyone have any advice on where to put it and making sure it is before the transfer switch?  Thanks.

Can someone tell me how to close the front curtains?  I see the Velcro strips but both are the fuzzy part.....none of the sticky part!  Thanks.

lamovitz.......What did you mount the bolts to on the PC?

I've used Protect A Tow for well over 5 yrs. and have been well pleased with it.  No dings to the toad......No rocks on the hood, etc.  Easy to put on and take off and easy to store.  I haven't mounted the eyebolts to the back of the PC 2552 we have, now.  The other rig had a bumper, which they were mounted to, but the PC doesn't.  I think someone else on the forum is also using Protect a Tow and I'd be interested to know where to mount the bolts.

Check underneath the couch, behind the switch, to make sure the wires are plugged into the back of the switch......that's where mine was loose!

Pax - I was concerned that the cages would not fit side by side in that area because of the slanted wall.  I'll see if I can get the measurements.  Moving them back and forth would be doable but would sure get old after awhile.  I'd like to find a permanent solution, if I could.

TomHanlon -  I didn't feel right about calling Earl and taking up his time when I wouldn't be buying new, but would be looking to purchasing used.  I have tried to figure out the dog collar, D ring thing but I just can't seem to picture it.

Bruce - How much room is there between the the driver's seat and the slide when it's in?  How would you anchor the stands so that they are stable while traveling?  You couldn't like bungee them to the seats unless you wanted holes in the seat from the birds chewing on them. Smile

Parrots are very loving pets.  They have the intelligence and, some, the vocabulary capacity of a 5 yr old child with the emotional maturity of a 2 yr old.......So it's like living with perpetual 2 yr olds.  Well, here I go, out in the weeds, again!

Thanks, everyone.  Please keep the ideas coming.

Thanks for the replies.  Good ideas....keep 'em coming!

Sue - Unfortunately, there are 2 of us most of the time. How comfortable is the couch?

jfcaramagno - Most of the time, you need to keep your parrots at chest height to prevent dominance behavioral problems.  Without getting to far out in the weeds,  the higher they are the more bossy they get.  Think of the rooster on the top perch in the hen becomes his job to "rule the roost".  As far as the cats go, I've never allowed any interaction between the sitting and watching the birds, no toys with feathers in them, etc.  Besides, each cat pretends like they are an only child, anyway!  Grin

Bruce and Sharon - It's not a good idea to put them on the floor for any length of time for almost the opposite reasons that I gave for having them too high.  Would be stressful for them and could cause other behavioral problems, like pulling out their feathers or other things.  It doesn't interfere with movement of the drivers seat, having a cart behind it?  I suppose you could do the same with the other cage, of course they would have to be anchored somehow.  I, also, was trying to keep the euro chair.

I've wondered how difficult it would be to remove the shirt closets and install them there?  Would have to figure out a way to contain the mess.  They're not too bad......but, I also don't want to sleep with crumbs in the bed!   Hey, If you had to eat with no hands or no lips, you'd be messy, too!  LOL

I have 2 parrots that travel with me.  Those of you with the 2552, can you tell me where you would place 2 cages in your rig.

Cage dimensions are:   18 x 18 x 31 and 14 x 16 x 21

I'm looking at 2552s and trying to see if I can make this work, along with the 3 cats pulling hair out

Thanks Mark.  PM sent.

Carol and Janey,  Thanks for your help.  I'll keep your ideas in mind.
