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.

I did not get the bedroom TV so I can't say for sure but I doubt that the sub woofer and the rear speakers would be wired into both the front and the rear TV. What would happen if both TVs were on at the same time? I guess this warrants a call to the factory next week.

Ron, In my first post, I missed that he is talking about the rear TV also.

Are you sure you are not listening to the rear speakers for the dash radio? Turn on the radio and set the fader all the way to the rear, then walk back there and see if they are on. My rear surround speakers are in the kitchen area. We do have different layouts, so my locations could be different than yours.

My wife says I am amiss sometimes. The site looks real good, at least 100 times faster than the old one.

1013  Main Forum / General Discussion / How do you Boon dock? on: December 24, 2011, 09:23:30 am
I have always stayed in regular private campgrounds or state parks when camping. I have even stayed in a Walmart parking lot a few times. Traveling out west I have seen campers parked out in a field like they are camping but have never try it myself. So you guys and gals that do really boon dock, how do you find places to do it and what rules do you follow?  Do you get permission from the land owner before staying or do you just know that it is public land and it would be OK? What would be real helpful for me and I assume others that have not boon docked would be some sort of guide lines to follow.  What is your take on this subject?

Yes, a very Merry Christmas and a happy New Year to all.

I Plan on eating everything I see that looks good. After all on a holiday all food is non fatting and is good for you. That goes for drink also.

Welcome Vern and Kay,

Glad to have you with our merry little band of PC owners. Our current and second PC is the same as you have, the 2552. I guess you have already found out how well balanced this motorhome is and how well it handles and rides. We all seem to make some changes or additions to make it ours. Be sure to post your modifications for all to see.

I wish we could winter in sunny Florida but my DW still is working for a living.  Wink

Trudy, IMO before you go man handling your awning, take Sue's advise and go to their web site and call them. They list their phone number on the FAQ page as the last question. If you bend it to much or you break it you will not be able to get any help from the manufacture. They may advise you to try bending it or not. There may be an adjustment you can make to the arms to pull it into the box better.  A phone call can be done without having to move the motorhome, saving you time. This is just what I think you should do, but it is up to you.
1018  Main Forum / General Discussion / LED replacement lights on: December 11, 2011, 09:29:20 am
  Help My new 2552 came with four reading lights, two over the sofa and one over each of the twin beds. The lights use a regular bulb, number 1139IF 12v 12w. After it is on for a few minutes, it gets very hot. I would like to replace it with an LED bulb or as a last resort an LED fixture. I have looked all over the internet including the Camping World site and can not find any reference to a 1139IF bulb. Camping World has one 4 inch fixture that looks like it might be replacement for what I have but they cost $50 each. shrug

Does anyone know where I might find a replacement LED bulb?

P.S. If you have this reading light, don't take the bulb out. I just spent 15 minutes in the cold trying to put it back in and could not. There is not enough room between the bulb and the housing to push the bulb in and turn it. I will have to try again another time. Be warned.

I don't see any hole. What is with the silver eject button on the bottom of the bed? Are you that hard to get up in the morning?

Nice job of hidding the hole.
