Welcome to the Forum!

We just signed a contract for our 2nd PC. We bought a 2350 on the Sprinter chassis last year and spent 3 monthes travelling with it. Loved it and got, on average, 17 MPG. We are now trading it in, with the factory for a 2551. We will sacrifice milage for comfort (twin beds).

The customer service from the factory is super. The folks that work there are so helpful. We had some minor problems with the 2350 and they were addressed immediately.

Guess you can tell, we are happy PC owners.

We are going to have the ladder mounted on this one. It is a much cleaner look without the ladder on the back but we don't have access to a ladder so it will be easier to climb onto the roof if needed.

We have used the Winegard antenna on many occassions. Since we tend to stay at State Parks, Provincial Parks (in Canada) and Corps of Engineers Parks, it works very well for us. Maybe the newer models are more powerful.

We will have the factory modify the under bed door.

What's happening with your chair? Got it yet?

Great idea. Once we get our 2551, looks like that is something we will do.

OH wow! It seems that trading a 2350 for a 2551 is the thing to do! We did it as well; signed the contract last Monday.

The reason is the comfort factor. We are getting older and crawling out of the corner bed in the middle of the night, is a PIA. When you are on the road for 3 monthes or more, as we were last year, twin beds seem like the way to go.

We ordered ours with no slide but a table and two captains chairs. We found that the dinette seating was uncomfortable.

We went with insulated glass again. Full body paint, cherry cabinetry, premium convenience package and surround sound and No carpeting in the coach.

We loved our 2350 Sprinter. We are sacrificing great mileage for comfort but++++++++++!

You guys are the first to know. We haven't even told the family. They think we are nuts as it is!

Even the non-rookies sometimes make a "mistake" with the sani-con cap--just ask George!

We live pretty close to Fort Myers Beach--about 1/2 hour or so depending on traffic. When you get there, give us a shout on the forum. We can check out each other's PC.

You can park the RV at the Visitor Center. I don't remember what they charge per hour but parking is available there as well as other lots around the Visitor Center.

Just thought of something else++++

About 2 hours South of Savannah is Fernandina Beach Florida with the best State Park we have ever been to. It is called Fort Clinch State Park. There is a campground, a neat fort, super beach with swimming. The only problem is that it is hard to make a reservation. It's always booked but check on Reservamerica. There may be an opening if you are interested.

We stayed at Skidaway State Park in June in our 2350. It is right outside of Savannah and a very easy drive into the city.

Since we do not tow, we parked at the Visitors Center (they offered free parking for an hour) and then went over to a garage that gave us free parking with the Trolley Tour. The tour was very informative.

We only spent a day in Savannah itself but should have spent more time walking around but in June the temp was 105 and humid so we went on our way.

We plan to go to Myrtle Beach and to the Outer Banks this coming summer so if you can give us any info on that leg of our trip, it would be appreciated.

This is exactly the same problem we had with our inverter on our 2010 2350. Unfortunately, it happened as we started our 8,000 mile road trip.

Yes, the status light should be green. Instead of the dashes, it should show battery voltage.

We called Xantrex and they told us we had a bad unit and we should send it back and they would replace it. However, we were in the Canadian Maritimes and that was not an option so we were without the inverter for 2 monthes. Pain in the _____!

We brought the Coach back to Elkhart and they replaced the inverter for us.

Gene had the same problem just  prior to us. So it seems that PC got some bad inverters.

The inverter in our Sprinter 2350 also powers the receptacle In the bath, the outside receptacle and the receptacle under the sink.
The inverter, I think, is under the passenger side bed in the 2551.  The black fuse panel covers the charger part.
Thr inverter should not be far away.

start by locking toggle switch, 2 braker looking switches, 2 on-off valves,pump,and discharge hose

1. remove black hose.
2. remove cap.
3. position in drain.
4. open black water tank valve (looks like a braker switch)
5. turn toggle switch on. this switch turns on pump.
6. wait until the noise of the pump changes then check at drain for flow
7. when flow slows shut off toggle switch.
8. close black water tank valve.
9. open grey water tank valve (the 2nd braker switch)
10. turn toggle switch on. the pump starts
11. the 2 on- off vavles should be closed
12 these value are for flushing the individual tanks 1 at a time
13 connect garden hose to in take connection
14 turn on hose
15 only flush one tank at a time
16 open 1 on-off valve
17 with water going into the tank open that tanks braker switch and turn on pump (toggle switch)
18 as the discharge looks clear turn off on-off valve for that tank
19let pump drain the rest of water the repete other tank . drain hose and your dune .

 Your macerator pump may be jammed. Take the cap off the motor side. With a large screw driver, see if you turn the motorshaft. If it doesn't turn, the pump is jammed. Try turning it with more pressure, back and forth. Hopefully, that should free it.

I don't know where the fuses are.

Good luck!
