The chirp is most likely coming from the LPG detector. The detector is connected to the engine battery. It should start chirping before the battery gets so low that you could not start your engine. Sounds like you need a larger solar charger for the engine battery.

Roni, you should call the factory and talk to them about it. I will bet that Carol will send you an new control unit under your warranty, for free. The number is 574-266-2020. Just call before 2:00 PM as Carol works a very early shift.

I think the 2552  wheel base and length are also incorrect. At least they do not match mine.

Has anyone ever tried one of those so-called "performance chips" for the V-10?  I have a friend who has one on his V-10 and claims he increased MPG a few notches with it.

It seems to me that performance is at one end of the sliding scale and increased MPG is at the other end. You can increase performance but you decrease MPG. You normally can not increase both without changing the engine.  I sure wish you could.

Bill G.

    Are you are talking about wanting something for when you have the PC in winter storage? During winter storage you should be turning off the house batteries by the switch at the step. If you leave one or more of the ceiling lights on, they will go off with the house batteries and on when you turn the house batteries on again. If you wire it into the step light, that works off the  engine battery, which stays on. Therefore it would come on when you open the door. This would work better when you are out after dark and come back to the PC.

There is small tube that you can see on top of the motor which is to let the gray water bypass the pump. The gray tank will need to be almost full before it bypasses over the motor and then it is real slow.

My step stopped working last week. The PC had been sitting since last Thanksgiving. I would go out and start it every two weeks and let it run for 5 to 10 minutes. Apparently this was not enough to keep the engine battery charged. The battery was down to 7 percent. I charged the battery and now the step works again. The step is wired into the engine battery so it will work even if the house batteries are turned off.

Add us to the list of sleeping with my head near the head in our 2552. Besides when I am a sleep who cares.

Welcome to our little band.

To be totally fair, not all Ford dealers will work on motorhomes. The dealer in Columbia and Silver Spring will not work on them, but the Mt. Airy will do some minor maintance if you plead with them. Frederick will do anything and everything Ford related to them. Given where you live this might be your closest dealer.

My concern would be when traveling, and I have a chassis problem, will I be able to find a serving dealer within a reasonable distance. This goes for any motorhome chassis including the big boys.

Sherman the only sofa with the drawer was the one with the air bed. The air mattress that came with our 2010 2350 was not very good. We ended up buying a $200 mattress that was much better and a whole lot more comfortable, still not the best bed for long term use.

As for storage, don't worry about it. When we bought our 2350 we were downsizing from a 35' Winnie class A with basement storage.  I was amazed at how much stuff we put into the little PC. What happened was, it made us think about how much stuff we really needed to carry all the time. For example if we are going to Lancaster for the weekend, we don't carry the Weber grill (Q100) as we eat out for most of our meals. This saved space for shopping stuff and weight on the way up there. The only thing we had a problem with was the folding chairs for outside. If you search here you will find many different ways that people have come up with to store their chairs. I bought some overpriced chairs that fit laying down over the outside drawer. When I picked up the new 2552 I found out that the depth of that cabinet is shorter and the chairs would not lay flat, but they do stand up OK. I  put some L brackets in the side wall that keeps them from sliding and trying to escape out the door. You will find that there is more than enough storage inside for a weeks worth of food, cokes and clothes. Beer depends on you. After that hit a laundry and a grocery store to resupply. I understand that you live in a 100 year old house, so you are not used to large walk-in closets like some people. If you get a Sprinter weight will be far more important that storage. I am with Stuart on which chassis is best, but to each his own. That is why they make different ones.
You better hurry up and get a PC because you are missing out on some great times RVing.
