151  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: Actual length of our 2552 on: February 18, 2014, 09:40:26 am
It would be a good thing if they listed the height with all standard equipment, but also let the customer know what the height is for his/her own specific rig.  I would imagine that the standard a/c unit, for instance, has been changed during a model year...which would make the height different, possibly.

I opted for a Coleman A/C, which has a lower profile on the roof, but also had a Winegard satellite antenna factory installed which raised the clearance on my 2552 to 11 ft 6 in.  I've decided not to go under 12 foot bridges if I ever encounter them.  Unfortunately, tree branches aren't labeled/signed.

Does anyone have any experience driving through or staying in the Adirondacks?  Which roads to avoid, campgrounds that are recommended?  I camped up there in my teen years, but that was ages ago.  I found quite a bit of info for the Finger Lakes and the Lake George/Lake Champlain areas but not much in between.  We would be interested in anything in the range from dry camping (if it was a particularly nice area), to limited hookups, to resorts.  Mostly we are looking for places to relax, take in the scenery/nature, maybe do some fishing or boating (not required though). It will be a relaxing stopover for us between the Erie Canal (a week on a canal boat through the locks) and the Boston area.

Ron:  It is about 12.5 lbs, and doesn't move around a bit.  The thickness is 3.7 inch.  I'll check the heat level next time I'm at the rig.  The Energy Star label lists it at the extreme low end of like models, with a rating of $6/yr. Here is a Consumer Reports review with specs....

I was planning to purchase a set of cables tonight and I thought that for a 2552 a 20' 4gauge would be more than sufficient.  I know Ron swears by his charger, and I'm sure at some point I'm going to agree.  Guess I can't wrap my head around it yet.  I think I should just listen to experience, and not wait until I'm in a bind.  LOL  At least then I can share the blame with someone.

<inquiring for a friend> Does anyone have a 3100 and travel with their pets?  How do you ensure they are secure during travel?  Does anyone use the space under the dinette? Anyone travel with 4 little doggies?

Joni and I use Snoozers dog beds for both travel and bedtime, but we have a 2552 and only two little pups. http://www.snoozerpetproducts.com/pet-car-seats-c-26_33.html

Although we live on the west coast now, I grew up in CT so I think that makes us eligible to attend if the timing is right.  Wink

We are making our way east in May with an Erie Canal charter in early June. From there we'll be exploring the Adirondack area, and into New England.  We are taking the southern route home and should still be on the east coast until late July.  Would love to be a part of a gathering.

If you happen to have 50amp service in your PC, here is the manual for the 240V transfer switch (PD52 series)...

Holly: Was interesting to see those pictures....apparently that little space between the drivers side bed and wall is where they installed my hard-wired SurgeGuard Unit.

John/Holly:  As George said, it's at the bottom of the wall under the generator switch and inverter display panel.....ours has one long screw on the right side of the carpeted section of wall panel and then it swings away to the left exposing the transfer switch.

I'm interested in your pictures of the drivers side bed storage space.  Ours has a carpeted box/cover which hides all of those wires and pipes.  Does yours have that cover and you removed it?  If so, how did you get it off?  With all that shag rug, it isn't apparent how it's attached.

Barry: Thanks for the link to the manual.

Was looking around for possible after-market replacements for the cupholder section of the center console and ran across this company which sells kits which you can buy to replace the dash, door and console finishes with a variety of different styles  and colors.

Bob:

We are in Northern Ca, and have a 2552.  Would love to show it off.  We actually have shown it to three couples so far, the latest was this very afternoon.  One of them just put down a deposit on a 3100 (wanted the additional dinette and a bit more space) and we will be traveling with them this spring/ summer.

Either PM me here, or have Aimee give you our info.  We are in the Napa area.

Haven't had any real rain since we got our PC, so can't help with this one.
