Hi Jan  RoseGlasses Welcome

We are on our second PC.  We had a 2350 and now a 2551 both with slides.  Like you, we thought we would enjoy a smaller unit the first time.  We found it to be a little too small for long term travel (3 months at a time).
The 2551 meets our needs perfectly.  The twin beds, compared to the corner bed, and the much larger bathroom are perfect for the two of us.  We even find the 2551 easier to drive then the 2350.

Like Judi said, consider your needs before you buy.  You might also like to rent a unit for a short trip and decide what you like and don't like about it.  If we had rented a unit with a corner bed prior to our first purchase we would not have ordered a 2350.  It is all personal preference.  If you are mostly going to be traveling alone the corner bed could be perfect for you.

We had the plastic toilet in our 2008 2350 and now have the ceramic in our 2012 2551.

I found the plastic toilet to be just fine, it actually does a better spray cleaning than the ceramic one.  It sprays the entire bowl from top to bottom where as the ceramic one misses a few places when spraying. The plastic one sat a little high but I got used to it and the ceramic one sits a little low.

Bob,

I was able to figure out a way to use the existing outside jack for a satellite hookup.  See my posting at http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,1266.msg9448.html#msg9448.

If you need more of an explanation send me a private email.

This solution works great for our direct TV, we did it on our 2008 and on our 2012.

Paul,

In our 2008 2350 we built a storage box behind the drivers seat with a raised lid like a toy box.  Here is a picture with slideout extended.  


Here is a picture with slideout retracted.



In our 2012 2551 we had PC install the flip up table, storage is minimal.  If we built it ourself we would make it larger because it does not interfere with the drivers seat.

Sparky,

If the pan is made of "ABS" then there are a few remedies on line even if it is UV.  One of them is hydrogen peroxide.  Not the strength you get at the drug store but the kind you would buy at a beauty supply store.  Google "ABS" and UV and you will see the many suggestions.  Hopefully you can find out what the pan is made from.

Sparky,

I would call PC and find out the manufacturer of the shower pan.  I would then call the manufacturer to see if they have any suggestions but also ask them what material the shower pan is made from.
They may be able to offer advice so that you do not damage the pan or make it slippery when wet.  

If you know what it is made from you could then search the Internet for possible solutions.

We had the same problem last year.  Here is a link to a previous post that shows how I fixed my leak.

Looks like model 2910, with two slides on the drivers side.  Color is in the brown category with full body paint.

Barb,

There is a white switch on the drivers side dash, ours is to the left of the steering wheel, you need to hold that in for a few minutes to place a charge into the cab battery.   There needs to be a good charge in your house batteries and make sure you are in the use mode and not the store mode.

When you think you have enough charge (could be 5 minutes or so) release the switch and try to start your engine.

With 9 inches of rain in January the PC nearly washed itself.

George and Jill,

Congratulations on the future rig.  Maybe we'll see you in Michigan this summer.  Many great parks to enjoy your rig.   HelloBalloons

Best answered by 2551 & 2552 owners (and even for us with our 2350) I've always wondered if the main Fantastic fan would be better utilized in the rear bathroom and have it as your one and only roof-top power vent.
Ron,

   In our newer 2551 we actually have three fans installed - one in the bathroom, a max-air in the bedroom area, and then the fantastic fan in the kitchen area.  We utilize all three and would not do without any of them.  The max-air usually runs all night on a very low speed since it is so quiet.  We use the bathroom fan for moisture control while showering and then the fantastic fan when watching TV or cooking.  Many times we will have both the max-air and fantastic fan on at the same time to draw air through the rig.  We personally use all three fans and one fan in the bathroom area would not work for us.

The other night we went to bed at 11 and both woke about 2 AM to a constant, loud noise.  We realized our generator was on even though we were plugged into shore power.  Neither one of us had turned it on, in fact we had the TV on the sleep timer while watching the news prior to falling asleep.  

After doing some research as to why a generator would self start we learned that it is a somewhat common occurrence on Onan generators given the right conditions.  Most sources indicated to check for any moisture around the plug-in connections from the generator to the motorhome.  In our case, we removed the cover for the GenSet and found a little moisture behind the wall.  

A few days earlier we were parked under a tree at a campground and we heard what sounded like a branch had fallen on the PC.  We inspected but couldn't find anything.  Having moved to a different location and encountering a rain shower we did a very close inspection of the roof above where the generator is located.  We saw that we had a slight separation of the roof caulk of the PC to the roof of the Cab.  We bought some Dicor-self leveling caulk, repaired the area and have not had an issue since.  After the tree branch falling and then movement of the PC it must have caused the very slight separation of the caulk since the roof inspected good prior to our trip.

Hopefully this will help others if their generator self starts.  Other RV folks have encountered this and fixed it by cleaning and sealing their connections and eliminating any possible source of moisture to those connections.

I like the shelf under it to support the weight better as you drive down the road, makes sense to give is some additional support. Sure wouldn't want it to fall down on you when you are driving.

Butch,

We had PC make us that shelf when we ordered the rig.  They were very accommodating in helping us with the TV installation.  We also strap it down but do not feel it is necessary.  Just makes us feel better.
