16  Main Forum / General Discussion / Re: 2551/2552 Slide in or no slide: Will the front half of the couch extend to a bed on: November 24, 2016, 01:41:49 pm
I went out to my 2552 with the slide in and tried to pull out the foot rest/bottom end of the bed. Before it came all the way out it hit the euro chair. If I move the euro chair out of the way I would of been able to pull it all the way out. Then if I lowered the back/seat it would of made a single bed. I not sure where you could store the euro chair and not be in the way.

Is this what you wanted to know?

In ours, you can lower the couch without pulling out the bottom part. If you fit length wise you could use it as a bed. Doesn't matter if the slide is in or out. If you want to use the whole bed with the bottom pulled out, the slide must be out to clear the kitchen cabinets.
18  Main Forum / General Discussion / New colors on my Macbook Pro on: November 19, 2016, 07:41:53 am
This morning I have new colors on my Macbook Pro, but not on my ipad. The new bright blue is very hard to read on the dark gray back ground. The black text is also very hard to read. The purple is un readable to me.

I tried changing the top headline colors but still end up with the same body.

Does anyone else have this problem?

Phoenix did not offer 50 amps when I bought this PC. If they had I would of gotten it along with the second A/C.
Hi Tom,

Are you saying that you wished you had two a/c units for your 2552?  If so, why?


See jatrax's answer above. Plus when sitting on the beach in Myrtle Beach or any where in a hot climate the single 13500 A/C is just not enough for me.

When I had my house wire with an 50 amp outside plug I did not need it then. Later I upgraded to a larger motorhome that used 50 amps, I was very glad I had done it that way. Phoenix did not offer 50 amps when I bought this PC. If they had I would of gotten it along with the second A/C. I think you are doing the right thing in getting the 50 amp option. You can never have to much power but you can have to little in a motorhome. I am happy to see you did go to Camping World and look at the difference between the 30 and 50 amp cords. Make sure you get a 30 amp male to 50 amp felmale plug for when the campground does not have 50 amp service.

Holly, try LED replacement bulbs.

On our Jeep Liberty they drilled a hole one the brake light holder and glued the bulbs into it. I could not change the bulbs. On our Jeep Cherokee they used the existing lights. Using the existing lights is much better.

We have the SMI plug-n-play braking system with the in cab signal box to tell  me when the toad is braking. We really like it. I just hook up, my wife does the inside the Jeep stuff and we go. It is a progressive braking system. Meaning the the harder I brake the harder the toad brakes and the softer I brake, like slowing down, the softer it brakes. I prefer this over like what Ron G has, when he brakes no matter how hard he brakes the toad fully jams on  the brakes.

  It is the tallest item on the roof which puts our clearance at about 11'-6". 

   - Mike

The specs on the 2552 and all the E450  based PCs states a height of 10'1"  including the A/C. You might want to double check your 11"6" statement, unless your have a dish that is 15" above your A/C.  Grin

1 A/C or 2? With one A/C you only need 30 amp service. Lighter electric cord when hooking up. With two A/Cs you need 50 amp service. Very heavy cord outside. Go to an RV store and pick up one of each in a 25 or 30 foot length.

In the 2552 with one A/C if you close the folding door, you block the A/C from the rear of the coach. If you have guest sleeping up front or one of you wants to go to bed while the other stays up and you want to close off the bedroom, no A/C in the bedroom or bathroom. With two A/Cs and 50 amp service you can run both of them and cool/heat both areas.

I don't know how color panels play into all this.

30 or 50 amp system? What is the amps of the 13500 vs 15000 ac? What about heat strip vs heat pump?
I know my dw like to pop the 30 amp breaker with ac and heat strip running. She will start the coffee maker or microwave or a hair dryer and pop goes the weasal.

We are trying to make some final decisions before ordering our PC. Several have posted how much they like the Magneshades .  Where are the magnets attached to the side windows so there is no interference when the windows are rolled up and down

The side shades have magnets in the shade that attach to the outside metal door frame. You can roll the windows up and down. They are one of the better options to get.

I like the two different colors between the sofa and the chairs. I looks like you got carpet also. All in all a very homely feel about it all. ThumbsUp

Nice list with every thing one could possibly want.
I was wondering where you live and where you plan on going camping. What with the insulated windows, and upgraded AC. You might want to update your profile to include where you live.

My 5 year old full paint PC still looks like new. It has never been indoors since leaving the factory and during oil changes at Jiffy Lube.

If the diamond shield has changed color to a light brown I can't tell because my full paint in those areas is light brown.

We had double pane windows in our Winnebago before getting the PC. Several of the windows were fogging up when we traded it in. So we did not get double pane in either of our two PCs. We find the white MCD shade will keep some, a lot of the cold out when pulled all the way down. I don't know if I would get double pane windows in our next motorhome, if there is a next motorhome. We don't do any winter camping after Thanksgiving.

We tow a 2015 Jeep Cherokee Trailhawk. Like Mike, Our auxiliary braking system is the SMI Stay-IN-Play Duo, with the remote radio baking lights/signal in the PC cab. We use the Blue Ox tow bar system also. Last month on the way to Myrtle Beach, SC I bent my 13 year old tow bar and ended up replacing it with the new Blue Ox Aventa tow bar which is 2 inches longer. It works even better than the old bar when turning.

Some people have had a problem towing the Cherokee. It goes into a bad shaking until you stop.  Jeep has a fix for this, but we have not as of yet so have not had the fix done. I have towed it from Maryland to South Dakota and down to Myrtle beach at the maximum highway posted speed limit, (read up to 80 MPH). We have found that the older Liberty and the Cherokee are better if you want to take another couple with you, say like out shopping or to dinner than the Wrangler. My buddy has one and every time we go out I get to drive.

I use WD40 heavy dute water proof silicone spray. It does not atract dirt like regular WD40. In the past I would use regular WD40 then wash the them every spring and re-spray. I still wash every spring but I find less dirt now.
