Bob is correct again and I stand corrected. I called Kermit and he confirmed that when connected to shore power (120v) and the switch by the door is in the use position the batteries are connected, but when you put the switch into the store position the batteries are no longer connected or charging, yet the light stays on. He also said that it is OK to leave the couch plugged in full time because the converter will go into a maintenance mode once the batteries are fully charged. He said that the refrigerator needs 12 v to start the flame.

Bob, Thank you for correcting me, I learned something new today. Cheers

Bob is right about the need for 12v when on LPG. The spark to light the flame is from the 12v. When you plug in, the batteries automatically come one. Try turning them off at the switch by the door when plug in. You can't get the light to go out.

Here on the east coast, we also get stink bugs that like to fill the propane tubes on the water heaters and the refrigerators. Good tip to run both before any trips. Thanks

Please be carefull about using " septic tank cleaner ". Septic tanks do not have rubber seals like the holding tanks have around the gate valves. Some of the " septic tank cleaner " can kill the rubber. Read the warning labels before using them. You might try some of the black tank probe cleaners sold at your local RV store or Camping World. I have heard of some people having some success putting a bag of ice cubes in the tank with some water and driving around. The ice is to bang on the probe and knock off the paper and other stuff on the probe.

On my first PC, I replaced the probes with these "". They seemed to work better for the year I had them in the PC.  I was surprised to see that the probe part on the inside, was just a small button while these are about two inches long. I have not had the new PC long enough to find out if I will order a set of these.

If you keep a copy of your sales receipt showing the VIN and date of pickup in the rig, you will have proof of purchase for everything installed as original equipment.

Ron, our 2003 Winnebago had a 60x80 queen bed, which is the standard size for a queen. We used the same sheets as our house.

I posted this when we ordered our 2552. "Now we are trying to figure out the sheets from two different company's. Amanda sent us to and this forum sent us to We are looking for custom sheets to fit theses new beds." We ended up ordering from We ordered two colors so we can tell which fits the short bed and which fits the longer bed. We also got two pillow cases for each bed. The sheets are on the expensive side but they fit and are a long term investment.

Welcome Dale and Claire,

We did the very same thing with the PC's that you are doing. Wait until you get the new 2552 and take it for a drive. The ride and handling is a whole lot better than the 2350. Also we can not find enought things to fill all the cabinets. Enjoy the new PC.

But Ron I can see what looks like it would be easy to add ten feet onto the existing RV garage. Just keep coming on out, move the door and you could fit even the largest of the PC in there. Just kidding with you Ron. It is a nice setup that you have now.

I wanted to put a garage next to the house but the DW said I change the size of the motorhome way to often to know what size to build. Anyway here in Maryland we don't really need to store them inside. So I just park it next the the house.

Hey Ron,
Have you every considered adding an RV garage on the side of the house? You would have room for two cars and an RV. Then you could get a bigger, newer PC. ThumbsUp Grin

Maybe even get one with a slide.  rolling on the floor

1017  Main Forum / General Discussion / 2552 bathroom vent on: January 07, 2012, 08:17:48 am
When we looked at the 2552 at the Hershey show the bathroom vent was mounted just behind the door to the bedroom, in the center of the bath. We ordered our 2552 without the vent in the bedroom, just the vents in the bathroom and the living room, both with Fantastic fans. When we picked the new 2552 up last November, they had put the bathroom vent back almost over the toilet. On the roof it is very close to the ladder, so close that the Maxxair II vent cover is about an inch away from the ladder. Also the black water vent is in between the ladder. This morning looking down on the the motorhome, I can see where the frost is showing all the ribs. There is clearly a spot for a vent about two feet behind the A/C. I don't know if that should have been for the bedroom vent or the bathroom vent.

My questions are to those of you who have the rear bathroom. Please state when you got your PC.
    Where is the bathroom vent mounted?
    Where does the black water vent come up through the roof?

This is not a big deal, just want to know.  Wink

My DW & I are interested in the 2552 model.
With slide or with out? With slide, 97 percent of motorhomes sold have a slide., If you ever want to sell or trade in the PC, the slide will pay for itself, in the mean time you get a lot more room. Some people don't think you should get a slide because the dinette is a few inches smaller in the slide and the slide adds about 200 lbs. Most who order a non-slide end up trading it in for a slide model. Call an ask Stuart.

After looking at lots of pictures I have a few questions for the members with this model.
When sitting at the dinette or the extra chair, does the TV cause you to tip your head back? Yes, but until they come up with a mount that will lower the TV, there is not much that can be done about it. The euro chair can be moved back so the angle is not as great if you have the slide. We got ours with the sofa because it is more comfortable for sitting on than the dinette and we then bought TV snack tables to eat off of instead of the large table Phoenix gives you. Works for us.

Would the viewing angle be better if it was lower? Yes but it would be real hard to see out the windshield.

If slide out is out can you still view the TV from the dinette? Only the seat facing forward, not the seat facing rearward. On the sofa you can see the TV from the rear seat and if you lean forward a little from the front seat.

Do the outside mirrors fold flat against the cruiser? (I have a tight parking area) Yes. All the PC built on the Ford are the same. The 2552 comes on the Ford E-450.

In the old days 40 psi was the max you wanted to have. Now with the plex tube plumbing, most manufactures test up to 100 psi. I don't us a regulator any more.

We got a bear head for a toilet paper holder from Cabelas. It is 8" high by 8" wide and 4" deep. We mounted it on the inside of the wardrobe door in the bathroom using two of the command picture hanging strips. It seems to be holding but have yet to drive anywhere with it up. We have used many of the strips and found them very useful.
