when I first bought the beast home and cleaned it up I used another brand of floor polish it was ok,,,,can not seem to find the Pro Max anywhere local,,tried a bunch of sites, ebay, amazon also,,hmmmmmm this sounds like a good product,,, I also keep my beast indoors,,, but want to add some more protection to the fiberglass areas  may have to go with the marine polish... some guy up in Washington on craigslist had a bunch of it maybe I ought to contact him see if he would ship it to Texas

An RV friend of mine is a member of a detailing group and really into McGuires products.  He recommend the McGuires flagship cleaner/wax.  It's available in a large 32 oz. bottle on Amazon.  Supposed  to really get the oxidation off and leave a nice sheen.  I think it's marine focused too.

Only issue was that an L bracket would have been nice for the water connection.  Our plumber consult said just bend the fitting a bit and it will be fine as long as the flow is adequate and it is.  What an upgrade this model is!  Has a foot pedal too.

We are really looking forward to the trip. We leave Punta Gorda on July 20 and head to Ft. Pickens National Seashore for a week--NO HURRICANES PLEASE. Then we plan on Fountainebleau State Park in Louisiana. Then to Natchez for a couple of nights. Then on our way to Colorado Springs to visit family.

I am really looking forward to Mesa Verde National Park. We plan to be in that area for a 5 days. We are staying at McPhee Reservoir in Delores Co (water/electric) during that time.

Once in Moab, we are staying at Portal RV Resort--It's expensive but they have a pool so after a hot day, we can relax by the pool. It's a Class A resort but they let B's and C's in 2 monthes of the year as long as they are no older than 5 years. Ta, Ta!!!!!!!!!

I think our plans may change and after the Grand Canyon we may head back farther North. We are staying at Mather Campground in GC. The daughter made reservationa at GC over Labor Day weekend, so there is really no need to go to Phoenix (and the 120 degree heat)

I know we will have a blast!!! We always do.

If anyone has any further suggestions, please give them to me. We have never been out that way and although I have researched, I may have missed something really cool to do.


We stayed at Fountainbleau and it was a great place.  There's an eagle nest there near the lake.  The drive to N.O. was pretty far each day with a hefty bridge toll.  Enjoy!

We did a similar trip for 3 months last August 25th.  We went to Branson and to North Dakota and onto Yellowstone for a week before everything closes up end of Sept., Jackson Hole, Lake Coeur d'Alene in Idaho, whoa what a campsite that was right on the water.  Then to Mt. Ranier WA, did the Oregon Coast (favorite part of the trip) and then started working our way back west through the rockies, Colorado Springs and late in October where winter and snow started already.  Fires were in Rocky Mountain park and we couldn't do that. 

My point was, it was so hot we started a month late and ran out of time to do all we had planned at the end of the trip due to weather.  We were more north than you plan to be it sounds.  Those parks were another trip we did with a rental car once and you are in for a treat.  Mesa Verde was my favorite.  I couldn't believe they actually let us climb around inside the dwellings. 

Have a blast!

OK update:  We got a china, elongated Dometic/Sealand model 320 that fits fine.  Ten minute installation.  The closet door clears fine if the lid is up, NOT the seat needed to be left up rolling on the floor rolling on the floor

The pantry looks great but I'm wondering WHERE do you put your clothes?


We use the large closet in the bathroom and all the cupboards over both beds.  Plenty of space.

We called a couple days ago, parts lady is supposed to call back but we're still waiting.  She said they have new ones now not sure what the difference is.  Hopefully she can find some old ones.

See if this chart from Thetford helps you out.  I'm not sure what model is in the 2010 2551.


Sue, I had that but it's close and just wanted to verify if anybody tried it yet.  Sure appreciate your help.

Anybody upgrade to elongated china commode in the 2551?  Trying to find one that fits allowing the closet door to swing over it.  Do we need low profile?  Does the footprint work in either Thetford or Dometic styles?

Yeah for $50

Can we get brackets for the Fiamma awning from Phoenix?  We need two.

Our ottoman fits behind the driver's seat and stores a bucket of dog food too.  Perfect!

Here's how we transformed a closet into a pantry in our 2551.  I'm pretty pleased with it.
