We had a larger A/C unit installed when our 2552 was built.  Opted for the Coleman Mach8 which has a low profile and increased capacity (15,000 btu vs. 13,500 btu). We also opted for the standard A/C, not the heat pump version.  Although we do have 50 amp service on our rig the unit will run off the standard PC generator.  If you intend on researching this unit Coleman has them built by Airxcel, so a search on both may help.

You might want to see if the campground/park can accommodate you in that original site until you can figure it out.....usually they can, especially in a case like this.  They might also have a good mechanic on call that you can use to check out the slide.

While it could be something serious, it could also be as simple as an extraneous screw from the factory that got caught up in the mechanism and just popped loose.  We had half a hardware stores worth of screws left in the cabinets and under the beds, etc. by the factory.

An easy to use app with ability to easily post (much larger) pictures would be more desirable to me than the forum here, but for us Facebook is far from ideal, for many reasons.

Lots of previous discussion here regarding handling.

Our 2552 (as with most unloaded rigs) had some handling issues.  After loading it close to what would be considered 'full' for us on a normal trip we had it aligned.  Very much improved thereafter.  We also added a Safe-T-Plus steering control/stabilizer which took care of windy conditions, passing trucks and hopefully added stability in case of a flat tire.  Driving was very comfortable on our coast to coast trip last year.

Our cable line goes right into the tv and we use the TV controls to switch between antenna, av, cable, etc.  No special cable boxes.

We use the same setup and have had the same experience as GoPhoenix.  Our memory foam toppers are comfy and not hot (for us).

Here is the valve and connection setup, which is behind a lockable small door on the drivers side.  Very convenient...

119  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Water pump flexible hose on 2552 on: April 21, 2015, 12:09:12 pm
My pump is a Pentair Shurflo Revolution (model 4008, 3gpm). It has always been a bit noisy, but that bothersome yet since we haven't used the pump all that much, but plan to soon.  It does not have flexible hose on one side, and on the other side, there is flex hose, but not connected directly to the pump.  I purchased all the 'stuff' needed to change out hoses, etc, to comply with the recommended Pentair/Shurflo instructions for installation, which are:

"Use flexible high-pressure hose on the pump inlet and outlet [such as SHURFLO Kit 94-591-01]. The pumps ports and strainer should not be connected to plastic or rigid pipe, or the pump's normal motion will transmit through rigid plumbing causing noise, and possibly loosening or cracking components."

The manual also says that to reduce noise, the pump should be mounted as close to the water tank as possible.

If I ever get around to doing the mod, I'll post results.

I have had a small amount of water come out the overflow while driving, but only once that I am aware of.

Tom Hanlon has posted in the past that when this occurs he uses a small section of pipe or hose over the overflow and blows into it, clearing the line.
