I'm pretty sure you need to have the battery disconnect switch on for the coach batteries to charge from 110v service. Using 15 amp plug is fine.

But note your Ford battery will not charge and from the small loads from engine computer, that battery will go dead unless you run the engine or turn on the little switch to the left of your steering wheel.

Once you filled your batteries with DISTILLED water, they should charge back fully. You may have shortened their life but they should be OK.

As noted do not let you battery voltage go below 12.1 V

When I had slide trouble, I watched Phoenix take my fridge out and reinstall. I swear it only took 10 minutes each way and did not look that hard to do.
Also I'm sure if you bought a new fridge from Phoenix, they would install for you at a very reasonable price.

I had a 2551, now a 2552, which is much better
Love the room a slide gives you
I agree with Power management and get a Bogart monitor.
Why the pure sine? Most devices work fine with the standard inverter.
I don't see need for jacks or safe-t-plus
I like the power seat, I like the 3rd chair with a seat belt.
Never had problem with 2-way fridge, 12v uses too much battery.
Big yes for spare tire, love the big standard electric awning.
Solar, anytime is OK, but don't put antenna in front, makes more room. See my picture below.

There is a multi pin connector near the step. The red wire should be 12v all the time.
The door button gets corroded and is usually fixed by rotating the button several times which cleans any corrosion from inside of the switch.
If you turn on the ignition the step will not extend, the yellow wire will be at 12v.
Let us know if any of those tips help.

This happened to me with my 2012 2553. The seal was glued down to the floor and the adhesive failed.

PC fixed it no charge. But it took 4 hours and the have to remove the slide, refer and dinette.
They put the new seal in with screws.

60 feet is probably the maximum for size 10 wire if could draw near the 30A limit.
The voltage drop in a 60' run of #10 wire is only 4 volts.
A simple calculator

Never let your voltage go below 104v at the RV.
So your cord is not the problem
It's the campground.
In Mexico, I've seen them use #10 wire run hundreds of feet and have 4 RV's each trying to use 20-30 amps. This is when your voltage goes way down and a Power Management System should be used.

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.
39  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2 AC units in a 2552 on: April 26, 2017, 03:22:50 pm
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.

Or backup while bogged down in deep sand. Ripped them both off. Help

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.
