Paul I have lived in a couple of countries that make your part of the states look like the chilly north. When you get that much heat all the time you get used to it and don't mind it as much. When you do live up north and drive down into the heat of the South in the summer you  really can tell the difference. Living in Maryland we get a little of all the weather patterns, hot/cold, dry/wet, etc. So we never get used to anything and we feel all the effects of the weather. I am sitting here watching the storm that you just sent our way, heavy rain and wind but no tornados. Bill is going to come our way this weekend. Most of the energy  from these storms is done with by the time they reach us.

One thing I will say about taping down foil insulation is that it would be a pain to take it back up in the spring and fall and put it down again in the summer. Some times the extra heat coming up from the floor on the passengers side keeps my wife warm while I prefer the cooler air in the off seasons. Wink

You probably could order the 2014 Ford Econolpne E-Series mats as I don't think ford changed the cab for 2015. You might want to check with your local ford dealers parts department to see if they know of any changes in the floor.

Do a search for mats on this forum. Weather Tech floor mats helped us some what. But nothing is going to totally fix the problem.  There is insulation for engine compartments that you could glue under the floor, but that is a big job and some what costly. If you don't like the rubber mats in the summer just put the carpet mats on top of the rubber ones.

They are always in the middle of September. The committee announces when and where the next years reunion will be at the reunion. I think they are working on the East coast for next year but have not said for sure.

Tom...I believe Sparky and others are referencing the "marker" lights, those are the 5 smaller lights that run across the top of the front and rear caps, their is a tenancy of branches, etc striking and knowing them off the coach.   You are correct in stating the LED taillights/blinkers/stop lights  (3" in diameter) should out live us all!!!   Have a great weekend and be careful.  Ron G.


I am talking about the top lights like the ones in Rons pictures. Both my top and lower lights are LEDs. I don't see how the rear lights can be knocked off. The front overhead clearnce lights maybe, but not the rear ones.

My rear marker lights are 3" round LED lights that are recessed into the rear cap. I don't see any way they could be knocked off.

If I needed replacements, I would call the factory. I agree with Ron about checking the wiring before calling for replacements. LEDs should out last the motorhome.

starz2720000 I would test drive one before dropping your consideration of the PC. The other tread going here is now talking about the same thing but they are saying that they did not have to do any thing to the PC to be happy. Some of us have had several motorhomes while other only one or two and therefore expect different handling from our rigs. I for one found that I wanted to upgrade the shocks to Bilstein shocks on the last four motorhomes I have owned. That is just me liking the firmer ride than what the original shocks provide. Some folks want to add every thing they can that might want to improve the ride and handling while others don't feel the need to change a thing. I found that the PC is just about like every other motorhome I have owned when it come to ride, handling and steering. One motorhome will ride better, one will handling better and one will steer better that the other ones. I have had motorhomes from the pickup truck with a camper on the back, 21' to 28' class C and 28' & 35' class A motorhomes. You must remember that these things are a big box on a truck frame. Some times the wind will push you around, sometimes big trucks and buses will push you around, sometimes the road will bounce you around. If you can handle this and it will be the same for all motorhomes, you will be fine. You can find the same problems in cars and vans everyday but no one talks about them. Each one of us on here is different and want different things from our motorhomes, that is why they make so many upgrades to add to motorhomes. You make it, someone will buy it.

The hitch on the back will state it's max weight. That is not to say the motorhome can tow that much. Take the weight of a fully loaded motorhome and subtract that from the gross vehicle weight to see what you can tow. The owners manual should help also.

Doneworking have you checked to see if you can twist the vent to redirect the air flow? Just the lovers turn, not the whole vent.

Phoenix was and may still be using a furnace that has three large and one small hose openings. Check you're existing vents to see what has been used to see if you can put a larger hose into the bath. A larger hose on a small opening in furnace will not do much for you.

Because we camp a lot in the summer when it is very hot and the A/C does not have vents in the bathroom, in either our 2552 or the old 2350, we learned to leave the bathroom door open or at least cracked open. We started doing this to allow better air circulation. We now do this in the winter also. When we take showers the heat from the shower keeps it warm in there. We do close the door for showers and when using the toilet for number twos.

In the 2552 the heater vent in the bathroom blows right on my right leg. It can really warm. The vent can turn to allow some directing of the air. You might want to check your vent to see if it can turn. If not look into getting a new vent that does turn. It is easy to replace vents. you can find them at most RV supply places like RV dealers or Camping World. A call to Phoenix might help get you one also.

Soon where did you place your towel bars?

Ron turn off the hip hop music and stop dancing around in there.
 

I am 6 foot and 235 lbs and never had your problems, but then I don't dance around in there. I agree the shower in the 2350 is larger and better than the 2552.

That looks like the screws were started before holding the TV up into place, then the screws are tightened. I guess that side was missed. I would tighten them and keep an eye on them, but don't worry to much.

What did you use to mount the racks IN the shower? We're concerned about hurting the surface. Thanks.

I am not one of those who are against using screws and drilling holes. I think that who ever buys my PC aremore likely to be thankfull that the bars are there and not how they attached. If I trade it, the dealer won't care.

That being said, I am a big fan of command strips and bath strips for wet areas. Great for hooks and soap dishes, etc.
Don't leave glass bottles in the shower or on open shelfs when traveling.
