To answer the question on time limit, I called their 800 number listed in recall notice.
They assured me there is no time limit.  exactly! Also Ford dealers are authorized since it is a Ford vehicle. One problem with many places is they need a door >10' to fit the RV inside. Ford truck dealers all have large doors.

Sell it on eBay. But shipping may be very expensive. Or try Craig's list in your area to avoid shipping costs.

Thanks to both of you. It seems that my wife just started hitting buttons then I was left with wondering why it didn't work. Works like a champ now. Cheer

You have something stuck in the blades if it doesn't turn freely. Actually it is very easy to remove the pump. I think the small hose has a clamp and slips off and the electrical unplugs. Remove the screw from the bottom bracket and rotate the pump off just like you rotate the 4" cap off. You can then look inside to see if you can rotate back & forth until you can get the item out.

I'm not sure what my wife did but now when I hit thermostat 3 times to run the furnace, the roof air fan runs. The furnace does come on and responds to the thermostat setting but the only way to turn the roof fan off is to turn the thermostat off or turn off circuit breaker #4 (Roof A/C).
It must be a control system failure of some sort, any ideas of what to check further or how to go back to normal?

Can you rotate it 360o with the screw driver. Do it in both directions and try again.

Of course, Ethanol has a lower heating value. So when they add it you get less gas mileage.

I used to have a 2551 on a E350 chassis. In 30,000 miles I averaged 10 mpg.

Now with my 2552 on a E450 chassis I get 9 mpg, which was predictable from the change in rear end gear ratio.

I've broken about 7 so far. I got 8 free from Carol. They are cheap made in China latches and easily break the moveable part. They are made by brdsupply.com . If they won't give me any more free, I found a source on-line that claims they have USA made replacements that don't break.

You know what causes it. PC has some unprotected screws right in that area and if you pull the hose it punches a hole into the hose.
Can't remember how I fixed it.

In an old RV I owned with a Kohler genset in the mid 90's my carburetor plugged up and would not start because I did not run it at least once a month.
I pulled the carburetor and had a small engine company throw it in an ultrasonic cleaner. It worked fine and after that I always run my generator once a month.
56  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: "TOW Haul" feature as shown on dash and trans light keeps coming on. on: October 12, 2013, 08:51:01 am
1. With light on is it actually in tow haul mode. Easy to tell difference because of shift points. I had the problem and it was due to animal chewing on the wiring.
2. The free checks at auto stores, do NOT do transmission codes.

I checked my 2010 2551 today and found the following.  The three circuit breakers shown going to the generator in your schematic go to the Sani-Con pump (20A), the slide motor (20A), and the third is the charging line from the engine battery/alternator (40A).

Thanks a lot, I revised the drawing. My unit has 3 - 20a breakers & 1 - 40a that I showed going to engine battery, so I assume the third goes to the Generator starter.

I traced the wiring and drew them up.

I thought that those 3 wires that go through the breakers were for the Generator controls, but you may be right, they could go to the slide and macerator. I'll have to disconnect and see where they actually go. The same setup was in my 2006 2551. Maybe only one goes to the Generator.

I'm sure the electrical systems are identical in 2011-13. I just said 2552 since that is what I have. The 2008 models had different Inverters & Converters but basically the same system with 12v batteries.

Here is the standard PC power system wiring for the last few years.
