Congrats Bill and Sharon,

Is the 3100 available or are you ordering one?

We really enjoyed meeting you both and sharing our PC experience with you.  We moved to Quartzsite today and are near the big tent where I believe you are located; if you look around, you may see us.  Plan to be here a couple more days, there are a lot of vendors we haven't seen yet and we don't want to leave without something more that we don't really need.

Thank you....
I'm pondering over putting 2 reclining chairs in the slideout and removing the couch.  The couch is very uncomfortable to sit on.  Can you think of any options or idea that might be available instead of the couch??

The new air-bed sofa that PC started using in 2010 is very comfortable to sit and lay on.  We were looking at a 2009 and the 2010 when we purchased and the difference was amazing.  Since the bed is an inflatable mattress, the cushions are just for sofa use, no compromise.  If you want to stay with a sofa you might be able to change to the new air-bed sofa.

Bob M. stated he recalls having roughly 6" betwen his barrel chair and his open tri-fold couch/bed.  Air beds might be tighter.

Hope this is helpful, when we bought our 2010 2551 we compared a 2009 tri-fold couch/bed with a 2010 air bed and found that the air bed was 8 inches shorter.  That is there was 8 inches more room between the end of the bed and the kitchen cabinets.

Sorry, now that I think about it, the 8 inches was with the tri-fold and air bed in the sofa position.  I did not check the difference in the bed positions.

They are fluorescent lights, and lots of them!

I thought my 2551 was fine when parked and I just put the stiffer Roadmaster anti-sway bars on and now it is even less motion when parked.  I haven't driven it yet with the new anti-sway bars, too much snow, thank goodness it fits in my garage.  Probably the first test drive will be when we dig it out to head for Quartzite in a few weeks.

Hi Bill,

The shower pan on our 2010 2551 feels firm even under my 225 pounds, plus I fit comfortably at 6 feet tall, it drains fine.  We love the screen door, works great.

See you in Quartzite, we are still planning to arrive Jan 23 or 24.  Will call you when we get there.

I have a 2010 2551/slide.  Not quite in central California.  We are in Graeagle about 1 hour north of Truckee on hwy 89.  My neighbor has a 2007 2700.  If you want to come by you are welcome to check them out.

Great post Aimee!  It helps to step back and look at the big picture.   I appreciate the fact that Phoenix Cruiser provides this forum for us to share our experiences and ideas.  You are doing a great job maintaining the forum for a productive and fun experience.  It is obvious how valuable you are when you see how things can get out of control in your absence.

I am the original poster of the offending post, it started as an innocent question but got hijacked along the way towards a different issue.

Keep up the good work, and thanks to PC for the forum,

Also check out for custom sheet sets and mattress covers.  Look in the Yacht/Boat section for the mattress sizes in the PC2551.

My 2010 model with Cherry cabinets is the same as described by Ron.  Someone with the Maple finish once told me that the Maple didn't have the decal vinyl material on the cabinet face frames, not sure about that but worth asking Kermit.

Had Ford Rep. come to the PC Factory and program the computer for the Keyless Remotes which gave us two remotes.

Are you saying that keyless remotes can be added to my 2010/2551 by going to a Ford dealer to purchse remotes and reprogram the computer?

There are a lot of RV parks in Moab area, we stay at the Canyonlands RV Park right in town because we can walk to shopping and restaurants.  For dry camping near Moab, we like Horsethief Campground on the road into Canyonlands National Park (hwy 313), it is a BLM campground and usually not crowded.  Near Monument Valley we have camped in Valley of the Gods, it is a 17 mile good gravel road off hwy 163 near Mexican Hat.  There are no specified campsites or facilities, you just find a good spot off the road and enjoy the spectacular views.

Have a great trip,

Maybe PC made a change in the rear TV and/or DVD player during the 2010 model year.  Sounds like your TV is a 120v unit that is wired to the inverter.

On mine, the TV is a MBQUART and the DVD is a Boss, both are 12v input and are wired directly to the 12v system.  When unplugged from shore power, the TV and DVD are powered if the battery disconnect switch by the door is in the "USE" position.  In the "STORE" position, the TV and DVD are off like all the 12 system and do not turn on with the inverter.

On our 2010 2551, the inverter powers the front TV and DVD player, and outlets in the bath, below the kitchen sink and outside.  The rear TV and DVD player are 12v and not on the inverter.  The inverter is under the passenger bed mounted to the inside of the panel forward of the converter/charger/ breaker panel.  You have to lift the mattress platform to see it.
