Trying to figure out our Home Entertainment system in the 2551.  I found a receptacle for the iPod in the cabinet but I'll be darned if I can make it work.  I tried calling Samsung but never got to talk to anybody. 

Anybody know how to play an iPod.  It says to push Port and chose A ipod.  That's as far as I can get.

Anybody have a good idea for a small foot rest or ottoman in the PC for the couch?

Update on our noise. We took it to the local Ford "big truck" shop and they kept it two days before telling us "what noise?" It's a truck. Trucks make noise. John drove down, took them for a test drive, waited till she started singing, then said THAT noise. OH, THAT noise; OK we'll look at it; we may call Ford to see if this is normal for the V10 engine.

The PC has been there another two days and we hope to have an answer by noon today but I have a feeling they won't have fixed anything. We told them we need it to camp in tonight and asked if it would be fixed. Their answer; well, it will be ready to pick up either way... implying a good chance there will be no fix. I LOVE car dealer repair shops. We should have cancelled our local appointments back in May and camped out at the Ford dealer in Indiana to wait out the week until they could look at it.

We are going back through Elkhart in July so we may book an appointment with the Ford dealer there and see if they can quiet her down a bit. At least they know what the engine is SUPPOSED to sound like. What noise, indeed.

I feel your pain.

That's cool, wish we could meet up.  We might take ours for a night at Wikiva maybe next week.  Looking for a place with full hook ups  just for a test night.  Any suggestions?  Central Florida?

Yes, the electric one, as nice as it was on the Winnebago, wouldn't slope like you describe.  How did you decide where to place the brackets?

Unfortunately it's manual and I'm used to the electric.

We got the walk through on our 2010 2551 today.  We had no idea that the awning would be so cumbersome to open and set up.   There are no brackets on the body of the coach.  Is this normal?  What are you supposed to do with the poles to set it up?  What if you are on concrete or asphalt?  Sounds like some of you have gotten brackets.  Where did you get them and how do you decide where to place them?  Does this cause any issues with the door?

I thought maybe this was part of that Good Fairy joke where the fairy taps the husband on the head and grants him a wish.  He says he would like to have a wife 20 years younger than him (no offense to his wife who is 70, he says).  And presto, the Fairy taps him on the head and he is now 90 instead of 70. Moral of the story, be careful what you wish for.

Hi everyone!
We've been lurking for a couple weeks and have learned a lot from all your great posts. As fate would have it, now we have just found a 2007 2551 at a dealer and are seriously interested in it. We're impressed with the construction, the floorplan is perfect for our needs (has sofa slide), and everything seems to be in good shape considering the age and mileage. Has what we consider normal wear and tear on the interior--a few scratches on woodwork; carpet needs a good cleaning. Has the standard equipment plus leveling system, solar panel, back up camera and full body paint.

This would be our first motorhome; we owned a TT previously.

Here are a couple questions that we'd appreciate input on:
1. It has 58k miles and 1000 hours on the generator. Any concerns other than typical wear and tear?

2. Steering seemed vague on the test drive. Dealer will replace four back tires (front tires are 2009), balance and align the PC. Thoughts?

3. Dealer is touching up a few scratches on exterior, fixing awning, adjusting slide (was very creaky), and fixing screen door track which was loose.

3. Dealer is asking in the neighborhood of $49k, which is in line with NADA and a bit more than other similar units we can find. Our insurer says book value is $34,325 & that's all they will cover. So the question: what's a  reasonable price?

Sorry for the long initial post! We're usually more concise!
Jerry & Judy

We just bought one too, a little newer so we've been checking lots of RV's and prices.  I do know the mileage can hurt value and NADA does figure in for that.  Have you checked on the Traderonline for other units and prices of your year vehicle.  Condition is important but not so much when you get ready to trade or sell this unit later.  Full body paint does add quite a bit to the value.  We didn't get that on our 2010 we pick up today.  I would decide if you are satisfied and confident with the PC and then make an offer accordingly.  You might be surprised.
