PC's cord is 25'. One more 25' cord will do the job.
This one at Amazon has served me well for 5 years and is only $33 with free shipping.

It's just bolted. When removed Dicor works great. Won't leak.

On the 2552 you could have 2 A/C units 10' apart. Use front where the vent is now and the back where the Fantastic fan is.
The Fantastic fan could go where A/C is now.

Plenty of room as long as you don't need roof for anything else.

I only camp in the winter and almost never run our A/C at all, but I like it hot.

Every bag chair I bought failed after 1-2 seasons. They are heavy but cheap.
I finally found a good light aluminum chair, 7 lb, for $20 with coupon at Harbor freight.
This is a picture, see website for details, they show price at $30 on-line, but maybe coupon works there also.

I store inside behind my barrel chair in my 2552.

You just disconnect wires going into the converter and hook the 3 wires from EMS to it and reconnect the wires that were going to the converter to the EMS input.
Run the phone wire to a convenient location where you can surface mount the read-out/override.
See if sketch helps.

PC will do the stove anyway you want. My wife did not like the recessed stove and didn't want to cover or uncover for a work surface. So PC just surface mounted our stove. It's easier to get big pots or frying pans on.

Disconnecting and taking out the pump, takes me about 5 minutes.

If you break those tabs off, you can just buy that piece from Carol for about $35. You do need a vise to be able to hold the pump and unscrew the receiving end off. They give you all the seals you need.
No leaks after it was replaced.
I've broken those tabs 3 times in the past 11 years.

They used a collar with 2 pointed screws which puncture the hose. I replace screws and protected the hose from the screws.
You can actually fix the hose with some thin electrician's tape, which goes into the hose corrugations and seems to work for me.

I had a few extra 2x8 boards. I cut them up into 1' or 2' pieces. Made the cuts on a 45o angle to allow easier entry. If there are any irregular stones on the ground, occasionally they break.
I just put them on bottom of the side cabinets, they don't take up much room and are easy to clean off.

You are aware this stove as well as Coleman stoves require full bottle pressure, which means if you want to T in a line from the tank, you must T it in before the gas regulator on the RV propane tank. This is easy to do.
Looking at the picture of the Nexgrill this looks too high for one of the low side compartments.
This is what I use and it easily fits into the small side compartment. Coleman Grill Stove from Amazon.

PC doesn't read and respond to posts here. I would suggest sending pictures and asking Kermit. They know their units better than anyone.

I had a bad rubber seal on my slide-out and asked a local dealer if he could fix it, he said it would take a week and cost a fortune. I called PC, brought it in and they fixed it in 4 hours. It required them taking out the whole slide-out to make the repair.

But they are not perfect and one area that could be improved is with custom modifications and requests.  The process is far too casual without enough written paperwork and check points during the process to make sure everything is done the way the customer wanted.

I agree with Jatrax. When I was buying my second PC I had all sorts of changes which I made sketches, showed pictures and wrote detailed instructions. I went to the factory early to trade in my old PC and found they had just started on my new unit, I had no idea. There was no indication that any of these instructions got passed through properly, so I had a second set and put those in my just started unit so everyone would see them as it got built.
It seemed to work as there were no mistakes, a few small jobs that didn't matter when they were done, they waited for me to pickup the new rig so they could double check that it was done right.

They probably should let you give your instructions to Bob (Foreman) and let you go through these so he understands them. I don't think Earl has much input as they are building the unit and has lots of other things to worry about especially when they are getting ready to go to the big winter shows.

I have the Progressive HW30, Phoenix hardwired it in. But in two older RV's I hardwired myself. Easy to do.

I was at a campground that a tree fell on their main power feed knocking out the neutral wire. Voltage varied from 60v to 180v instantly. All the other camper ruined microwaves and refrigerators.
Mine blew a hardwired fuse on circuit board. In two days progressive sent me a new easy to change board. In the meantime there is an override so you can still get semi-protected power.

Expensive and sometimes a pain when campgrounds wiring is too small and voltage drops below 104v when using microwave.

I mounted the digital display next to RV power cut-off switch by door, so I could look in door when hooking up to see if everything is OK.

Gail, Make sure they are Deep Cycle and not called Marine Batteries. those are a combination of starting & deep-cycle.

Another thing, is monitor your battery voltage without any loads on with a digital voltmeter. Try to never go below 12.10 volts (50% discharge ). This will ensure batteries will last at least 4 years. Watch battery cell water level at least every couple of months and use distilled water.
