George, the black water tank is in the middle of the PC back by the rear bumper. It is just far enough away that you might not hear it working. You can lay by the side, push the button and see the handle moving. If it is opening, it is doing what it should. If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

Welcome Butch.

I hope you are not picking up my new 2552. Grin I guess I better call on Monday and see when mine will be ready. You sure made a great choice of motorhome and model. I would have bought the 2552 the first time if it had been available, but it wasn't.

Ron is correct on spending one night locally. exactly!  I would suggest the Elkhart Campground. It is just a couple of miles away from the factory and a couple of miles from a Lowes, Walmart and an Manards hardware. All good places to stop and get towel bars, T/P holder, etc, so the factory can install them while you are picking up the PC. They are on the way from the airport to the factory. We spent on night when we picked up our first PC and tested everything we could. All the lights, water, air conditioning (both house and Fords dash), heaters (dash, LPG and electric), doors and drawers, plugs (have a small plug in test light with you) and vents. Some of these things you can test during the walk through but doing them again at a campsite helps. We found one small thing, the passengers side door molding over the outside mirror was broken. We stopped at the factory and Bobby replaced it in about two minutes. He also answered a couple of question I came up with while camping in the PC.

Anyway I hope you enjoy your new PC and the trip home. What color and options did you get?

Stay on the forum and let us know what you thing and mods you make to make it your own.

I have had them on every motorhome I have owned and would never be without them. Some time I don't use them. Some time I level with them. Some times I steady with them. I can do all this because I have them. If I didn't have them then I would be out of luck.
I have heard that there are three level sites in the mid-altantic area but I have only found two of them. Grin

Been there, done that. The rear end was really low and I was raising it when the rear wheels lifted off the ground and the motorhome rolled back about two feet. The jacks folded forward and when the wheels hit the ground the parking brake stopped it from rolling any more. No harm to the jacks. I retracted the jacks and everything was ok. Now I am a lot more carefull about how high the rear is being lifted. It did scare me at the time, but a good drink fixed that also.  Grin

Go ahead and lower the jacks. They are self lubricating, so you should lower and raise them a few times. Then you should be aok.

On the model page for the 2012 2350, the pictures show the Euro recliner chair. I think this is the new standard chair, replacing the old barrel chair. You might want to call Stuart on Monday and ask him to be sure.

Thanks Gradygal for the pictures, they help a lot. The best part is that earlier today we went to home depot and bought towel bars and tp holder. The towel bars are the same as in your picture. We got the 18" size. What size is yours.

Now we are trying to figure out the sheets from two different companys. Amanda sent us to and this forum sent us to We are looking for custom sheets to fit thses new beds. Can anyone help us here?
1031  Main Forum / Tips and Tricks / Owners of 2551, 2552 and question on: September 17, 2011, 08:53:39 am
I have on order a new 2552 with the rear bathroom. We are trying to figure out where the best places are to place the towel bars and the toilet paper holder.  We ordered ours without the mirrors on the bathroom closet doors, so this might be a place for the towel bars. Where did you place yours?

Also wondering if anyone put and kind of shelf/night stand near the beds.

What other mods should I consider on our new PC that you found useful?

Hi Mary, we have the aero bed that cost $200 and it works fine. If you get the double thick, remember to check how thick it is when you fold it into the sofa. Is there room under the sofa for it or where will you store it?

We got just about all the options except Insulated glass and the satellite dish. We got the leather euro chair and sofa. My daddy always said if it is free or cheap, grab for it. Since Stuart was almost giving this motorhome away I when for everything. As for mods, mostly We just eliminated some thing, No mirrors on bathroom door, plan on putting towel bars there, No vent in the bedroom, move the fantastic fan to the bathroom and add one in the living room, shelves in the shirt closets, no roof rack and wood grain dash, didn't like to black dash.

Judi and George, I am a big fan of Bilstein HD shocks with a tire air pressure of 70 lbs. Ride is not as hard with the lower 70 lbs pressure but is still very well controlled. If Koni made the FSD for the E-450, I might try them but they don't at this time. So shortly after I get the new 2552, I will have Bilsteins put all the way around. It takes about 8000 miles for the Bilsteins to break in but after that they are the best IMO. I got the shocks from and had them put on the 2350 locally.

Yesterday we went to the RV show in Hershey, Pa. It was senior day, buy one ticket and get one free. I took my wife with me, nice of me huh. After walking around and seeing a lot of the new motorhomes, we stopped at the Phoenix booth to see the 2012 models and colors. I guess, at least I am going to blame it on, the new motorhome smell got to us and we could not control ourselves. We really like the new 2552 model. As much as we like out 2350, the 2552 kept calling our name. Since Stuart was almost "giving them away", we jumped in with both feet and ordered an new 2552 in full paint cafe. So now the long wait to get it begins. I sure hope we are doing to right thing, giving up mobility for inside space.

We did meet several other PC owners there and it was great to meet them. Hi again everyone.
