We are not going anywhere this weekend-other than our pool! We have one trip planned for Sebastian Inlet State Park in June and then the BIG ONE in July.

With the price of fuel, we have to save our pennies for our eight week trip to Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island. At $1 more per gallon than last year, less MPG than the Sprinter that we traded for the 2551 and 5000 miles or so round trip------------------

I think I'm gonna have the big one!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Welcome to the Forum! We traded in our 2350 Sprinter in Feb. for a 2551. Still miss the Sprinter!! The negative, for us, was the corner bed. The twins in the 2551 are what we need at this stage in our lives. It seems that the Sprinter is right for you. Enjoy.

You will find much help and many friendly folks here.

We traded in our 2350 Sprinter for the 2551 in February. We had the oil changed on the Sprinter by a Dodge dealer. A Mercedes dealer will change it as well.  The owners manual should tell you what grade of synthetic to use-there are different grades of synthetic. The Dodge dealer had the oil that met the requirements.

Another avenue of information is the Sprinter-Source Forum. We found much useful info on the Sprinter from that Forum.

As far as we know, Jiffy Lube does not carry the grade of oil that Mercedes reccomends. Better to stay with the Dodge or Mercedes dealer.

Bob,
Love the laundry bag idea. George will have another project, although a small one.

Sue, if the bins fit, let us know where you saw them.

Billy,
We had the same problem on our 2011 PC 2551. It turned out that the 5 Amp fuse had blown. The fuse is not in any fuse box. There are 4 fuses tucked behind the panel directly under the emergency brake release. To access the fuses, you remove the panel. In order to release the panel, there is a small plastic clip where the emergency brake cable goes through. You have to lift the cable and pull it toward the passenger side of the cab. You'll find wired in fuse holders that have rubber caps. Open the caps and check the fuses. Good luck. Hope this helps.

Yeah, they do. When you become a member, they send (PDF) a list of all the PC owners who are members.

Forgot to tell you, Aimee, that it was postmarked from South Bend on the 10th.

We got one too. The interesting thing is that they spelled my name correctly. Addressed to Judi and George Nicholson. We were curious as to where they got our names and address. It's in the trash now! shrug

Welcome to the Forum. You will find so many ideas on this forum! Projects will be never ending (but fun). Glad you found the PC that you were looking for!

Another Congrat here! y--You will absolutely love it. Very exciting.

I agree with deleting the ladder. We did not have it installed on our 2350. Much cleaner look for the back end of the vehicle. George wanted it on the 2551 so it's there! No biggy I guess.

Where's the 1st trip?

No. Our Sprinter had the dinette. The cabinetry was cherry and the exterior was gray full body paint.

Ann and Bob:
Welcome to the Forum! We were new to RV'ing 3 years ago (sailors as well) bought a 22' Airstream Interstate (too small) then a PC 2350 Sprinter (hated the corner bed, loved the mileage) and this year a 2551 (love it, hate the mileage). We live in Florida but take off in the summer. We are heading North again this year-PEI, Nova Scotia, New England. Love the Canadian Maritimes! This will be our 3rd year travelling there.  Might even be in your neck of the woods.
If we can be of any help with campgrounds etc. please let us know.

I agree. My dad passed away 2 years ago after suffering from Lewy Body Dementia for years. I'm an only child so.....well, you know. My Mom will be 90 this year and we finally got her in a senior living apartment with lots of activities and she is so happy there. Now we're finally able to get away for longer periods (guilt free)! We're going to enjoy this while we can.

Good luck folks, I know it ain't easy.
Thanks for the all the good thoughts! Mom is here in FL and sister in Philly so the burden falls on us. We hope that we can take our planned summer trips GUILT FREE! Might be hard-----

Thanks for the help. We have taken 26 to 77 and then on to 81/84. Which way do you go to Ashville?

Two years ago, we stopped in Natural Bridge VA, then on to Promised Land State Park in PA and then to Cape Cod. This time we are bypassing Cape Cod on the way up. Got to get to PEI for Aug. 4. We plan to stop in Scarborough ME and then to New River Beach in New Brunswick and then on to PEI.

I guess I was wondering about going up 95 to maybe Fredericksburg VA and then cut across to 81 and onward. This year we have to get to PEI for a specific event so time is of the essence and we really don't want to spend $$$$$$ in tolls. Gas is going to break the bank as it is. Remember, we traded in our PC 2350 Sprinter for the 2551 in January.
