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

1026  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.

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.

1034  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.
