The tires (LT225/75R16) on our 2012 2551 are rated for a max inflation pressure of only 80 pounds and we run 72 pounds front and rear.  Not sure if PC uses a different tire on the 2910's.  Also, max pressure is printed on the side of each tire.

Carol,

We have used chassis saver to take care of any rust on the frame.  This is a link http://www.magnetpaints.com/underbody.asp
It is similar to por-15.

It is not clear.  It comes in a couple of shades of black and a silver color.  Not cheap and you have to be "VERY" careful when you use it because it will bond to anything--including skin.  But the benefits are it does bond the rust and thus stop it from speading further.

We bought it at a local auto store in our area.

We used it first on our battery tray and it looks brand new.  I think we bought an 8 ounce can for $30.

I wonder if that is the same rust you are battling.  Maybe it has come through from the back side.  Maybe the real solution is sealing the back side to stop it from bleading to the visible side.
No Ron, it is not from the back side of the metal door entry step.  It is just from the overspray of the welding process when they put the door frame together.  It is right at the corner on the front of the step.  

We used chassis saver to handle any of those areas that are prone to rust.

We were getting just a small amount of surface rust on the door frame where it is welded to the body of the motorhome.  We went out and bought some rustoleum in a GLOSSY WHITE color, cleaned the area and painted with a light coat of the rustoleum.  All looks good now and hopefully we will prevent any rust from taking over that area. 

The glossy white was a decent match, not perfect, but since we keep it covered with a small mat only we will know it was repainted.

Ron,

   Have you checked out if the cabinet PC uses gives support for the counter top?  By looking at ours I can't tell how much support is provided to the counter top by the back of the cabinet and then the vertical support between the two sets of drawers in front.   Will be waiting for pictures on your project.  Sounds like fun.

Here is a link to a previous post on the 12V fuse panel.  It is based upon a 2012 2551 with slide.

Not sure if and when the factory makes changes in the fuse panel layout.

Ron,

  It was George and Judi that posted about the pin.  I don't think the toilet that you have has the same design.  I do not remember these same pins on our 2008 2350.

George,

We called and they are sending a new seat to the house.  Thetford is only a 40 minute drive for us since they are in Ann Arbor, MI so if we have any more problems we'll stop by their office when we are in that area.  Barry put silicone on our pin but it still constantly works loose.  I check it every few days and push it back in.  Hopefully the new seat will be better.  Thanks for the info.  A HELPFUL for you!!!

The right door looks nice, but extremely impractical.  Compounding the problem, with the door open and any drawer or cutting board extended, it blocks access to our fridge and bathroom.  If I were to order my PC today, I would insist on combining the center drawers with the right side behind-the-door drawers, with adjustable dividers to compartmentalize them.  Cheaper for the factory and better for the customer.

Ron,
    I actually like the galley like it is because we replaced the drawers with a pull out pantry and that door hides the pantry nicely.  Also with the double slide there is no blockage of the aisle or bathroom in the 2551 with that door open.  I think it all depends on what model you have.  If I had larger drawers there I would tend to overload them and then have problems with the glides.  Just my opinion on this one.

We ordered our radio from www.crutchfield.com.  We looked around at many places locally and found the same radio here for a better price and free shipping.  Many of them also include the installation gear for free.  On our 2008 we installed it ourselves but had it installed in the 2012.  Crutchfield also has very good customer support when you call them.  We contacted them to make sure the radio we were getting was going to be a good match for the E450.

PS - If you go by Long Key State Park in the Keys we'll be there from Feb 13 - Feb 26.

We did something a little more pricey that gave us the added benefit of an ipod port on the radiio.  We changed our radio out for an after market one that had a USB port and an IPOD port.  Didn't do this for that reason since our 2012 had a port for the IPOD but what I really wanted was a radio with a remote control.  Now I can sit back and change stations while the DH is driving.  Radio is also HD.  Works really nice.

We too are looking to change out our couch but the memory foam one that factory puts in is too deep for me to sit comfortably in.  I also really like having the under couch storage so we visited a company while in FL called Glasstop and are looking at something like the following--
http://www.glastop.com/rv-furniture-detail.asp?id=434
They custom make these to the size you need and can eliminate the arms if you do not want them.  They are really comfortable and will make the seat depth whatever is necessary for your comfort.
We will check with the factory when we get home but I think there are options available.

Welcome to the forum.

I could not find sheets at a reasonable price to fit our 2012 2551 so I bought some twin sheets at J C Penney and did some minor tailoring to make them fit.  If you check out this post you will see what I did to get nice fitting sheets that only cost me $10 a set.  They were on clearance so got them nice and cheap.  I'm sure the flannel sheets will soon go on clearance since they will be bringing out the spring/summer items.  Here is the link http://www.phoenixusarv.com/community/index.php/topic,714.msg4873.html#msg4873
