Are there seat belts on the forward facing seat? I would guess that the seat belt laws require that the seat be fixed in place. Any chance I am right?

When we had our 2552 built, I requested that we get the larger screen instead of the one in the mirror. Carol was able to get one for me. You might want to call her and see if just the larger monitor can be had and what it would take to hook it up. It maybe just a case of moving the wire from the mirror to the new monitor, but then again it may take a different camera.

After I picked up the PC I started thinking again (sometimes a good thing, sometimes not) and wondered what it would be like to have two cameras on the back. One hooked to the larger screen and pointed down and the other hooked to the mirror and pointed farther back at the traffic.

DownBy TheRiver,

A couple of questions for you,
1. It seems that when you post on here, you post several replies in a row instead of just one like the rest of us do. Why is that?
2. You joined this forum way back in December 2009 and claim that you "hope to buy a PC soon". Do you just get on here to preach and complain or are you really going to buy a PC? We all welcome constructive conversations but you seem to like to complain a lot.
I am just wondering what is going on here.

Barry is that your final answer? Are you sure you don't want to call someone and ask them. I know a DW that you can call here at our house.  rolling on the floor
Sue, I will call them tomorrow. Thanks.

My lights have just the on/off switch facing the floor near on end. I just pushed lightly on one side on the center plastic and pulled down. It came off no problem. Mine just popped back in. 

One thing I noticed is that the tubes are 12" long. When I went to the stores I can not find any 12" tubes. I guess the RV parts stores might have them, i hope.  I was hoping to find a blue tube or a warm white so I can use one of the bedroom lights as a night light while watching the front TV. If anyone know where I can get a 12" blue or warm white tube, please let me know. Or if Barry/Sue want to sell me one of their three way lights.  Grin

When we had the 2350, we had two dogs, a 125 lb German Shepherd Dog and a 80 lb lab. Sometimes they would share the sofa, other times they would take turns using it. The lab had to go onto doggy heaven so now it is just the GSD. We now have the 2552 with more room and less dogs. He sometimes will share the sofa with my wife but never with me. If I sit on the sofa he will get off it and lay on the floor. A few times we have had problems with campgrounds that have a size or breed restriction. Around the Tampa area they like little dogs only and most campgrounds don't like Dobbies or Rotwellers. I find it is the smaller dogs that want to take on our GSD, while the larger ones get along just fine.
We had a cat for many years but she hated going in the car or the motorhome, so she stayed home and was happy.

Question, If you drill holes or cut and reglue the panel, wouldn't the Thermal expansion just move to another part of the panel becuse the panel still can't move?

If it was my shower, I would take some pictures I could email them, then I would be on the phone to the factory asking them what I should do.

    If you take a battery and put it on your workbench not connected to anything it will start to lose a small amount of its power.  If you come back in two or three weeks and check it, you will see this drop in power. I could of said three or four weeks as it is not a exact time frame before you can see the drop. When I worked at the RV dealership we always disconnected the batteries when leaving a motorhome. Every couple of weeks we would start the motorhomes to charge the batteries, dry the exhaust system and let the oil flow in the engine, even then when we went to start the motorhomes some of them would need a jump. My PC has been plugged into shore power since last November and the water in the batteries is still full.  I am sure that Kermit can give you a better explanation than I can if you call him.

Ron and Dave,

You could both be right and both be wrong according to the January 2012 Family Motor Coaching towing guide. On page 65 it sates that the Jeep Liberty approximate curb weight is 4.290 lbs. The Wrangler is 3,760 lbs and the Wrangler Unlimited is 4,075 lbs. Ron could be right if his Liberty is a two drive model and not the heavier 4x4.

Motorhome magazine just came out with their towing guide but I gave my copy to a friend.

To find out more about towing, and what makes a good toad,  you might want to go to the web site for FMCA or Good Sam Club or Motorhome magazine.

When you are plugged into 120v (shore power) at a campsite the converter in your PC will charge the house batteries. In the old days, just a few years ago, the converters had one stage of charging, full power. Todays converters have two or three stages and can they can read the status of the batteries. When you plug into the shore power, the converter comes on full power, then as the batteries get to full charge the converter goes into a maintenance level (about 2 amps) to maintain the batteries. The older converters would keeping trying to charge the batteries even after they became fully charged. This would cause the water in the batteries to boil out of the batteries, thus killing the batteries. This was called "cooking" the batterers.

I don't know exactly when PC started using the multi-stage converters, but I think it was around 2008 or 2009.  Since  you have a 2011 PC, you can and should leave the batteries on when plugged into shore power. The only time you should disconnect the batteries is when you need to store the PC for two or more weeks without hooking up.

I hope this answers your question.

X2 what they said plus remember you might to think about how many people you want to seat. If we meet up in a campground someday, I would let you take the DW and me out to dinner. So seating for four would be nice, I don't like being strapped to the roof.

"Their price of $30,000 is negotiable.  If money was tight, having to consider a used one, I would not pay his asking price.  But I would discuss it.  One thing for sure is that I would require they do something to level it out, helper springs or air bags, or something.  And have them include in the deal some type of awning, and replace the TV and associated cabinetry with the 26" widescreen and the current cabinets around it.  They have been known to do requests on used models.

If I was Stuart I would be sending you hate mail for posting things like this on their web site. What goes on between Phoenix and a buyer should be between them and not you. If the buyer wants to have things changed, it should be up to them, not you. What a buyer pays for a unit is between them and Phoenix, not you.  I know you are only trying to help, but it is not your business so you should stay out of it.  It is OK to point out the availability of a unit but you should stop there. This is just my thinking and has nothing to do with Phoenix USA.
